When I stumbled upon this poster, I wondered if perhaps if it was some brilliantly designed ruse for a film that never existed. It seemed too perfectly bizarre.
The highlight of Hot Vampire is Jim Parker's portrayal of Count Dracula. Parker is undoubtedly the worst Dracula ever shot on celluloid. He grins and stumbles his way through the film like a nervous high schooler with a camera shoved in his face.
Vampire Doll is brilliant stuff, and it's made all the more fascinating with the handful of cues it appropriates from western horror. But don't expect a traditional, bloodsucking tale. This is a kind of gloomy and spooky cinema unique to Japan.
Roar took eleven years to make. It wrapped in 1981. Tippi Hedren divorced Noel Marshall in 1982.
Despite being directed by the great Joe D'Amato and starring the loony Klaus Kinski, I had somehow never heard of Death Smiles on a Murderer. This poster really makes me want to see it!
Midori is a shocking and hypnotic slice of animation. As unsettling as it may be and as raw as its animation is, it is a strangely beautiful film filled with many gloriously disturbing sequences like the clip below demonstrates.
With the latest film on the Marvel conveyor belt/money printing machine, Avengers: Age of Ultron, around the corner, it's a good time to review one of Australia's greatest superhero movies, well, one of Australia's two superhero movies – The Return of Captain Invincible.
Spring Break is relentless tits, beer swilling, tanning lotion, and urinating. Everything is filtered through that special sort of hedonistic lens that ceased to exist once the 90s rolled by. It's the perfect 80s teen sex comedy, and I love the shit out of it.
Just look at it. A thing of comedically macabre beauty.
In Mikey, TV's Brian Bonsall (who, for the record, now looks like this) is a psychotic orphan who burns through several foster families, sometimes quite literally. There's no subtlety to Bonsall's horrendous acts as he spouts one-liners and kills the crap out of everyone.
Mondo Exploito interviews the owner of Westgate Gallery, fine purveyors of smutty poster art!
