The Gappa Family (ガッパ)

The Gappa Family (ガッパ)

It's a shame Nikkatsu only made this single kaijū film. Gappa, while no masterpiece, has a lot more energy and passion than some of the Godzilla and Gamera efforts that appeared towards the end of the Shōwa era.
Her Vengeance - Thai poster

Her Vengeance – Thai poster

Ngai Choi Lam's Her Vengeance — in its proper uncut form — is about as out of control as rape-revenge films come. Its native Hong Kong poster doesn't quite capture its chaotic brilliance, so I'll hand things over to Thailand.
Wise words from a man of science

Wise words from a man of science

I thoroughly enjoyed the bizarre hodgepodge of horror and softcore delivered by The Jekyll and Hyde Portfolio. Below is a rather fantastic bit of inane scripting where a man of science gives some truly thought-provoking words of wisdom while a police detective looks at the camera nervously...
The Gays (2014)

The Gays (2014)

I'm not entirely sure how a gay audience would react to this. I'd imagine, like any crowd, it will have its nervous detractors and its belly-laughing supporters. Gay or straight, its unhinged middle finger to political correctness is easy to appreciate.
Calamity of Snakes (1983)

Calamity of Snakes (1983)

Calamity of Snakes is a strange beast. On the one hand, it's kind of incredible with scene after scene of amazing set-pieces, but then you remember that you're watching hundreds upon hundreds of snakes being massacred and you start to feel depressed.
The Devil's Honey - Italian poster

The Devil’s Honey – Italian poster

Long before I watched The Devil's Honey, I had come across its extraordinarily sleazy poster. From the perky nips showing through an open dressing gown to the beautifully painted salivating dog, this is pretty much perfect 80s locandina trash.
Absurd tongue torture in Japanese Hell

Absurd tongue torture in Japanese Hell

Jigoku is two unfinished films mashed awkwardly into one, and the results are as messy as you'd expect. The absurdity hits its peak towards the end of the film where we watch a bunch of evil assholes get tongue tortured.
Mansion of the Living Dead (1985)

Mansion of the Living Dead (1985)

Like most Franco efforts, Mansion of the Living Dead is fucking insane. There is no mansion in the film. And the living dead feel like an afterthought. Grimy bush munching and scenes of sadism take priority over the horror.
High Priestess of Sexual Witchcraft - US poster

High Priestess of Sexual Witchcraft – US poster

I thought I'd launch 2015's Poster of the Week series with a bang by presenting this gorgeously stylised design for Beau Bachanan's 1973 occult sleaze fest, High Priestess of Sexual Witchcraft.
A conversation about dicks

A conversation about dicks

This week's clip is an intimate discussion about dicks. Not only does this scene warn us against the dangers of "nutritious soup", it brings up that age old dilemma of whether you can put a computer inside a penis.

Mako: The Jaws of Death (1976)

Mako is one of the few post-Jaws efforts to stand as an entertaining shark film. At the centre of its success is its manic leading man. Richard Jaeckel ignores the film's low budget and dull aesthetics and, for some reason, gives this role everything he has.
