Back in 1970, Sylvester Stallone was in a shitty softcore flick called The Party at Kitty and Stud's. It was a piece of cinema history I'd all but forgotten about until Sly's face popped up in my Facebook newsfeed in a post from Westgate Gallery.
I assumed the outrageous image of Lando Buzzzanca sinking his teeth into a naked lady's ass found on the Dracula in the Provinces poster was purely a bit of lurid false advertising. Having now seen the film, I can happily say that assumption was wrong.
Agon doesn't make the best first impression, but, as he receives more screen time, the execution of the monster costume becomes more impressive, especially for a production company without Toho's money.
Death Bed is a surreal film, or at least it aims for surrealism. It has pretensions to be something more than a schlocky horror movie, despite, and I’ll say this again and again, it is a film about a bed that eats people.
Not an obscure film by any means, but I suspect this German poster for Sergio Leone's classic A Fistful of Dollars has been seen by few and hence, worth featuring on Mondo. And what a gorgeous, almost painfully stylish poster it is too.
So I know I've used Mondo Exploito's Clip of the Week articles as a bit of an outlet for my love of horrible English speaking actors appearing in Asian films and I've absolutely bombarded you with clips, but I really do think this one takes the cake.
Lee made so many movies. Needless to say, not everything Lee featured in is great, but he was always great in them. Hidden within the mountains of his cinematic oddities, there's several gems. This is just one of them...
It was quite an easy choice deciding on a Christopher Lee themed poster to feature today. This much maligned film that ushered Lee's Dracula into the 70s is my favourite of Hammer's series, and Germany's gruesome poster does its vicious streak justice.
It took me a while to decide what Christopher Lee clip to share today. I decided on a moment from Rasputin: The Mad Monk (1966). This is not one of Hammer's best, but Lee's performance in the titular role is fantastic.
Diary of a Serial Killer is only interested in getting two things out of its audience: titillation and revulsion. It achieves both with admirable success.
Will you get a load of that tagline! It really seems like quite a stretch to me... Project a vaguely erotic notion on the concept of milkmaids and then see how far such a spurious notion can be pushed.
