When I see the poster below, my brain explodes into a fit of desperation telling me, "You have to see Pyasa Shaitan right fucking now."
Hiring Urotsukidoji as a teenager, I expected a horror anime, instead I got a heinous cocktail of crude rape scenes and tentacles invading every orifice in sight. It upset me a bit, but blew my mind too.
Good Dog is not actually a dog. Housing some rather complicated fantasies, he is a human-shaped demon who dresses up in a dog costume so shitty it would offend even the least discerning of furries.

There's very little in this world funnier than terrible English speaking actors in Hong Kong movies. It gets even funnier when they have to swear. And funnier still when the English subtitles manage to mistranslate what they're saying.
A bizarre and terribly uneven mix of outer space sci-fi, underwater horror, and naval drama, Raging Sharks is a shark film like no other. While I'm not much of a fan of the Shark New Wave, the garbage pumped out by Nu Image Films is generally pretty entertaining.
Is it any real surprise that the best poster for a movie called Tentacles would come from Japan?
Disco Dancer is the most entertaining Bollywood film I've ever seen. It has everything you could ever want in a film: disco dancing, death by electric guitar, incestuous undertones, and fights. The fight in the clip below is a definite highlight.
I spent much of Der Samurai's running time terrified that it would betray its ambiguous approach and elegant style. But it never does. It remains true to itself start to finish. Der Samurai is exactly what independent film exists for.
Out from the ashes I rise again, clawing myself out of the rubble. What will I do first? See my loved ones? Lay with a female of my own species? No. I will watch some tokusatsu TV shows from the 70s.
I could not be more enamoured with this Hungarian poster for Michael Crichton's Looker if I tried. It ticks pretty much every box my design wang needs in order to stiffen, and it has done so considerably.
