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

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?
Conquest (1983)

Conquest (1983)

Conquest, for all its flaws, is actually kind of a good film. It's entertaining and certainly never boring. For Fulci fans I'd say that this movie is surprisingly essential if only to see the man's unique style in an unexpected setting.
Zigra (ジグラ Jigura)

Zigra (ジグラ Jigura)

Zigra lacks the flat out weirdness of Guiron, the brutish panache of Gyaos, and the creepiness of Jiger, but he is still a fun foe. Zigra's convoluted scheme involves kidnapping a sexy spacewoman from the moon, interrupting radio programs with verbal threats, and crowning himself King of the Sea.
The Monster Squad - Australian poster

The Monster Squad – Australian poster

For some reason, Australia was lucky enough to get its own unique poster advertising The Monster Squad. As far as I know, this artwork has not been used anywhere else. Even more odd is that the artwork is rather fantastic.
Dungeon of Harrow's harrowing spider puppet

Dungeon of Harrow’s harrowing spider puppet

Earlier this year, I shared a screamy moment from Dungeon of Harrow. Well, here's another choice scene featuring more screaming, mind-melting acting, and a cute spider puppet.
Super Shark (2011)

Super Shark (2011)

This is no Sharktopus or Swamp Shark. Super Shark doesn't do battle with a Mecha Shark. At no point do sharks rain down in a Sharknado. Super Shark is just a big shark... that can walk around on the beach and fly.
Sledgehammer - DVD cover

Sledgehammer – DVD cover

I am not sure if this DVD cover for Intervision's Sledgehammer release (which uses the original VHS artwork) ever existed in poster form, but I love it regardless. It has a Polish poster feel without the same sense of style. This is like Polish primitive for the psycho set.
Ridiculous death scene from Kazuo Umezu's Death Make

Ridiculous death scene from Kazuo Umezu’s Death Make

Death Make is atrocious. It's awful. It's worse than atrocious and awful. It's a disaster in every aspect of its production. In a way, perhaps it is a success, because of its horribleness it has stuck in my mind more than any other entries in the Horror Theater series.

Men from the Gutter (1983)

Men from the Gutter (1983)

Though it lacks the lunacy of his most famous works, Men from the Gutter could well be Lam's best film. This is an absolute must-see for both Lam fans and anyone with a passing interest in Hong Kong cinema.
An interview with Jay Colligan, star of Cruel Jaws

An interview with Jay Colligan, star of Cruel Jaws

Jay played Tommy in Cruel Jaws. If you've seen the film, you'll most certainly remember Tommy. He spouts some wonderfully absurd lines of dialogue ("I'm the purser in charge of pussy!") and delivers a performance that exudes enthusiasm making him a likeable presence in the film.
