How to open a movie according to Traxx

How to open a movie according to Traxx

The opening of any film is important. It introduces important characters, establishes the story's world and its rules, and, perhaps most importantly, sets the film's tone. I'd be pressed to name film that meets that criteria better than Traxx.
Crazy Thunder Road (1980)

Crazy Thunder Road (1980)

Crazy Thunder Road is pure punk energy with an authenticity that could never be replicated on a big budget.
The Boxer's Omen (1983)

The Boxer’s Omen (1983)

The Boxer's Omen gave me a headache, but it was worth it.
Italian Stallion - Italian poster

Italian Stallion – Italian poster

Back in 1970, Sylvester Stallone was in a shitty softcore flick called The Party at Kitty and Stud's. It was a piece of cinema history I'd all but forgotten about until Sly's face popped up in my Facebook newsfeed in a post from Westgate Gallery.
Butt-biting vampire

Butt-biting vampire

I assumed the outrageous image of Lando Buzzzanca sinking his teeth into a naked lady's ass found on the Dracula in the Provinces poster was purely a bit of lurid false advertising. Having now seen the film, I can happily say that assumption was wrong.
Agon (アゴン)

Agon (アゴン)

Agon doesn't make the best first impression, but, as he receives more screen time, the execution of the monster costume becomes more impressive, especially for a production company without Toho's money.
Death Bed: The Bed That Eats (1977)

Death Bed: The Bed That Eats (1977)

Death Bed is a surreal film, or at least it aims for surrealism. It has pretensions to be something more than a schlocky horror movie, despite, and I’ll say this again and again, it is a film about a bed that eats people.
A Fistful of Dollars - German poster

A Fistful of Dollars – German poster

Not an obscure film by any means, but I suspect this German poster for Sergio Leone's classic A Fistful of Dollars has been seen by few and hence, worth featuring on Mondo. And what a gorgeous, almost painfully stylish poster it is too.
Hong Kong's worst judge

Hong Kong’s worst judge

So I know I've used Mondo Exploito's Clip of the Week articles as a bit of an outlet for my love of horrible English speaking actors appearing in Asian films and I've absolutely bombarded you with clips, but I really do think this one takes the cake.

Dracula and Son (1976)

Lee made so many movies. Needless to say, not everything Lee featured in is great, but he was always great in them. Hidden within the mountains of his cinematic oddities, there's several gems. This is just one of them...
Scars of Dracula - German poster

Scars of Dracula – German poster

It was quite an easy choice deciding on a Christopher Lee themed poster to feature today. This much maligned film that ushered Lee's Dracula into the 70s is my favourite of Hammer's series, and Germany's gruesome poster does its vicious streak justice.
