I thoroughly enjoyed the bizarre hodgepodge of horror and softcore delivered by The Jekyll and Hyde Portfolio. Below is a rather fantastic bit of inane scripting where a man of science gives some truly thought-provoking words of wisdom while a police detective looks at the camera nervously...
I'm not entirely sure how a gay audience would react to this. I'd imagine, like any crowd, it will have its nervous detractors and its belly-laughing supporters. Gay or straight, its unhinged middle finger to political correctness is easy to appreciate.
Calamity of Snakes is a strange beast. On the one hand, it's kind of incredible with scene after scene of amazing set-pieces, but then you remember that you're watching hundreds upon hundreds of snakes being massacred and you start to feel depressed.
Long before I watched The Devil's Honey, I had come across its extraordinarily sleazy poster. From the perky nips showing through an open dressing gown to the beautifully painted salivating dog, this is pretty much perfect 80s locandina trash.
Jigoku is two unfinished films mashed awkwardly into one, and the results are as messy as you'd expect. The absurdity hits its peak towards the end of the film where we watch a bunch of evil assholes get tongue tortured.
Like most Franco efforts, Mansion of the Living Dead is fucking insane. There is no mansion in the film. And the living dead feel like an afterthought. Grimy bush munching and scenes of sadism take priority over the horror.
I thought I'd launch 2015's Poster of the Week series with a bang by presenting this gorgeously stylised design for Beau Bachanan's 1973 occult sleaze fest, High Priestess of Sexual Witchcraft.
This week's clip is an intimate discussion about dicks. Not only does this scene warn us against the dangers of "nutritious soup", it brings up that age old dilemma of whether you can put a computer inside a penis.
Mako is one of the few post-Jaws efforts to stand as an entertaining shark film. At the centre of its success is its manic leading man. Richard Jaeckel ignores the film's low budget and dull aesthetics and, for some reason, gives this role everything he has.
