I Spit on Your Grave is already a remarkably unpleasant film, but this poster puts it through the Italian filter of sexy lingerie, blood, bondage, and a leather bound stool resulting in something far more obnoxious dripping in gaudy glitz.
This discussion between two inmates where they lament the troubles of prison yard love is both hysterical in its outrageous and very Australian dialogue and also strangely touching in an odd, sweary way.
Alien Spell has a more interesting back story than any Ultra monster - I'm not talking about his narrative history, but the controversy his episode, "From a Planet with Love", generated back in the late 60s.
Godmonster of Indian Flats is a favourite of mine, so it's a mystery that I'm yet to see Alabama's Ghost from the same director, Fredric Hobbs. This poster of almost Ghanaian levels of insanity is a reminder that I need to seek it out.
Towards the end of Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion, the prisoners take over their cell block and hold male prison guards hostage. In an utterly mad moment of role reversal, they strip down and vent their pent-up sexual frustrations on the terrified guards.
Domestic abuse, forced marriage, alcoholism: these are the erotic themes of Dik On's sole directorial effort, Love in Sampan. Yes, I think this is about as bleak as softcore sex gets.
I was perusing the incredible offerings from Westgate Gallery and came across a fantastic poster for Peter Jackson's Bad Taste. The brilliant artwork has little to do with the film itself, but hey, it looks great!
Nomad Riders kicks off with a literal bang as a gang of bad ass bikers blow up a family. At this point in the film, no context has been given for this act, which makes it fucking hilarious. The bikers then blow up some poor dude trying to use a portaloo. Just for kicks.
With Daydream, Tetsuji Takechi made the first mainstream pinku eiga, but with Black Snow, he really ruffled feathers. Yet for all its importance, Black Snow is largely forgotten.
Reb Brown spends much of the movie screaming, so it's appropriate that pretty much every poster for Strike Commando features the hero opened mouthed and furious.
