Aaaand that's 2015 done! Mondo Exploito will be taking a break over January. We'll be back in February to stuff your brains full of more filth and stupidity.
I had not seen this poster for Black Christmas before today, and it made my jaw drop a little.
The most Christmassy thing I remember seeing in Tokyo was some promo girls dressed in green Santa hats handing out energy drinks. This makes it all the more surprising that Japan has made its own offering to the Killer Santa genre.
How did America's favourite cinematic rapist come to direct a Christmas slasher? How the fuck did this happen?! I don't know, but after watching the film, I feel that perhaps it shouldn't have happened.
Despiser is a 2003 sci-fi-fantasy-horror-action-romance clusterfuck from a director who's apparently important enough to warrant a "from the director of..." during the movie's trailer.
This poster for the 1985 comedy Radioactive Dreams is so gorgeously illustrated that it actually causes pain within my person.
While Seagal is not all that great at laughing, he knows and loves his guns. He proves this by delivering a rambling, clearly adlibbed monologue filled with fun facts and gun-praise to a few bemused cronies.
Gezora's design is complex, but he is very simple to describe. He is, quite literally, a giant cuttlefish.
The joys of trashy Italian poster art is expressed perfectly here with this poster for Umberto Lenzi's The Man from the Deep River (1972) — the film that kicked off the cannibal craze of the 70s and 80s.
While Female Yakuza Tale is quite an amazing film, most of it is far too filthy for a clip to survive on YouTube. This gross but comparatively innocent moment is probably all that I can get away with sharing.
Complex performances, a compelling central character, and an utterly demented plot, Be My Cat is one of the most exciting films to rear its ugly head in 2015.
