Cara a Cara AKA Face to Face – Brazillian poster

This beautiful poster for 1967's Cara a Cara was created by Brazilian design luminary, Eduardo Muñoz Bachs. Bachs was a self-taught designer and children's book illustrator who provided his idiosyncratic style to over 2000 movie posters.
Detachable arm in Gamera vs. Viras

Detachable arm in Gamera vs. Viras

My favourite moment from Gamera vs. Viras is when the heroic child-stars of the film attempt to lasso an alien, which leads to an Nobuhiko Obayashi-esque airborne arm detachment.
Pandemonium (1987)

Pandemonium (1987)

Pandemonium is all a bit too much. At times I felt like Alex from A Clockwork Orange. Eyes forced open, burping and panicking, as a constant stream of mania spilled into my face.
Virgin Witch - US poster

Virgin Witch – US poster

There's not a lot to say about this poster for 1972's Virgin Witch. Either you love it, or you probably arrived at Mondo Exploito by mistake. It encapsulates early 70s exploitation.
"Show him how good your teeth are!"

“Show him how good your teeth are!”

I'm a big, big fan of Brian Yuzna. I can't get enough of his sleazy, gooey style, and The Dentist is one of his best. But it's not just Yuzna that brings the fun. Corbin Bernsen's off-the-rails performance has to be seen to be believed.
The Haunted Cop Shop (1987)

The Haunted Cop Shop (1987)

How deep did Wai's involvement run? I don't know. He may have written a really good script that was mostly ignored on set. Or, maybe, and I like think this is true, Wong Kar-Wai wrote a film where the protagonists kill a dog.
Ghost Cat of Arima - Japanese poster

Ghost Cat of Arima – Japanese poster

I've watched my fair share, but there is one ghost cat film I just cannot find anywhere: Arima neko. I have no idea whether the film is actually any good. But I love its poster — one of my favourites from my collection.
John-Michael Howson embarrasses himself in Alvin Rides Again

John-Michael Howson embarrasses himself in Alvin Rides Again

This week's clip is one that perhaps only fellow Aussies will get a kick out of, because it features none other than John-Michael Howson — a familiar hammy face from Australian television. Howson camps it up something terrible and creates what is probably the movie's cringiest moment.
Guru, the Mad Monk (1970)

Guru, the Mad Monk (1970)

Those already well-versed in his sadistic stylings of Andy Milligan will lap up Guru, the Mad Monk. It features the requisite mean-spirited dialogue, entertaining performances, sick and silly acts of depravity, and a loving relationship between a mad monk and his hunchback.
Cat Sick Blues, a Kickstarter from (most of) the Mondo Exploito team

Cat Sick Blues, a Kickstarter from (most of) the Mondo Exploito team

What I'm writing about today is a project that not only involves a whole bunch of us at Mondo Exploito, it's also a project that is very close to my heart.

Putney Swope – US poster

The Putney Swope poster is strangely shocking, amusing and above all, graphically compelling. Beautiful simplicity executed with perfection.
Man gorily transforms into insectoid rapist alien

Man gorily transforms into insectoid rapist alien

Tim Kincaid's Breeders is a magical movie full of bad acting, 80s boobs, and insectoid rapist aliens. I highly recommend checking it out. Maybe this short scene of chest-tearing transformation will wet your appetite?
