While it can be a little dull at times and the sex scenes without Lahaie are nothing special (some are downright awful), Bordel SS has to be commended for its surprising ambition and its vicious ending. Not many porn flicks end with death by electrocution and gun-in-mouth suicide.
Enzo Sciotti's art for Les confidences d'une petite culotte's Italian poster is bloody incredible. I don't know much about this French porn flick, but if Brigitte Lahaie is in the cast then SIGN ME THE FUCK UP!
Last year I reviewed Fulci's Voices from Beyond. In the review, I mentioned the film's jaw-dropping opening where a child is viciously murdered in an insane dream sequence. I felt it was worthy of its own Clip of the Week post.
If you're in the mood for a light and fluffy pinku eiga, free from nihilism and weeping, then Milk the Maid may be for you.
Okay, this is easily the most ridiculous poster in my collection — an enormous and absolutely outrageous Pakistani poster for 1984's Godzilla!
The Vixens of Kung-Fu had me laughing very, very hard. Seeing its impressive cast of classic porn stars goofily emulating kung-fu moves is quite mind-blowing. The way the film is cut together only makes things more mad.
Mecha-King Ghidorah's design and execution is incredible in its complexity. In presenting Mecha-King Ghidorah, there's much to take into consideration — three separate heads, flight, multiple animated beams — and never does he come across as shoddy.
While browsing the amazing Westgate Gallery collection, I came across a poster that made me laugh very hard: AFRICA ANAL! I have no clue where this movie is from or when it was made, but I love, love, LOVE its obnoxious poster!
Erotic Ghost Story is not high art. It is, however, solid CAT III entertainment with plenty of laughs, nutty effects, and Amy Yip's famous cans. Below is my favourite scene — an orgy prank that ends with corpses and milky vomit.
Like a Haneke film, when the end credits roll, you're left feeling like a little part of you has just died. I'd imagine that Morris County may frustrate those seeking a hammy anthology flick, but those who give it a chance will be rewarded.
Just a nice traditional Italian giallo poster this week. Lenzi was a master of his craft and the below poster is a perfect summation of the giallo film poster aesthetic.
