We'll never get a movie like School Spirit again. And while that's probably a good thing, it's hard not to enjoy its total lack of scruples and singular goal to titillate and entertain in the trashiest and cheapest way possible.
Lifeforce is known in Japan under the more exciting title Space Vampire. There are a lot of great posters for Lifeforce, but I think this is my favourite.
A bit stilted and stiff, I Vampiri is certainly far from Italy's best genre offerings, but it does feature some inspired moments. Perhaps the most impressive sequence is this incredible transformation.
I've got quite the soft spot for Rodan. Invasion of the Astro Monster the first Godzilla sequel I ever watched and helped spawn my obsession with kaijū cinema.
It dawns on me that in the years I have been sharing posters on Mondo Exploito, I have never given attention to the silent film era, which is a shame because there are some gorgeous examples of design from the 20s to appreciate.
In amongst the lifeless and bloodless Scream rip-offs, there's the occasional slice of 90s horror fun. Like Dr. Giggles. Doctor-themed one liners and puns galore, Dr. Giggles is good dumb fun.
Despite Hong Kong obscurities' ability to hide in the shadows, it's still rather shocking that Revanchist isn't more widely seen. Perhaps my lack of expectations is making me overstate the film's quality, but it's been a long time since I've enjoyed a Hong Kong action flick this much.
Is this really a Polish poster? It's certainly not the sort of imagery that springs to mind when I think of Polish posters. Though I suppose it is well past the golden era for Polish poster art, not to mention it's for a low-budget Mexican slasher.
Though not nearly as offensive as Category III's more famous shockers, Devil's Woman contains one ridiculous and repulsive scene worthy of a jaw drop.
Junkies, dodgy video effects, and a guy in a frog suit making out with a woman. Hello, Brainblast.
Loving this poster for Twisted Nerve from 1968.
The opening of any film is important. It introduces important characters, establishes the story's world and its rules, and, perhaps most importantly, sets the film's tone. I'd be hard pressed to name film that meets that criteria better than Traxx.
