The concept of Manda is cool, and there's no other monster in the Toho line-up like him, but to successfully pull off a snake-like dragon is obviously a difficult task, which perhaps explains his lacklustre appearances.
I think what fascinates me so much about this poster for Rattlers is the way it merges 50s illustrative design sensibilities with a distinctive mid-70s aesthetic. It has the effect of placing the film outside of time and place.
Dr. Phibes Rises Again is a hell of a lot of fun. Like its predecessor, it's fairly light in tone and heavy on humour. There is, however, one scene I found pretty distressing, and I don't even have a particularly strong fear of scorpions...
Don't let the fact that this is not as obnoxious and mean-spirited as the usual CAT III girl gang fare put you off. It's Now or Never is by far the best of the sub-genre.
Skimming Wrong Side of the Art, I came across this BATSHIT FUCKING INSANE poster for Cannibal Ferox. I'm questioning whether this is even real. IS THIS REAL? OR IS THIS SOME AMAZING ELABORATE PRANK?
For a film that shares its leads with the amazing Man from Hong Kong, Queen's Ransom is a pretty dull movie. It does, however, feature a scene where George Lazenby throws a rock at a woman then punches her to death. So I guess there's that.
Many of the great bad movies are the brainchild of one man. One man who overcame great obstacles, like not having any talent, to make their artistic vision come to fruition. Fateful Findings can be added to this list.
This is a film that absolutely does not pull any punches. Characters are killed unceremoniously, and there's no heroes to be found. This is one heck of a mean-spirited movie.
It's probably pretty dumb to include a movie like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on Mondo Exploito, but I'm super drunk and this German version of the poster really hurt my mind.
Space Truckers is not a well liked film, and it's certainly not Stuart Gordon's finest moment. Still, I'm quite a fan. It has a great cast, solid action, fun effects, and a malfunctioning robot penis. What more could you want?
Whether you're a fan of Full Moon or kaiju, Zarkorr is a great movie. It's not too often you see non-Japanese monster movies going down the practical effects route so it's nice to see what lower budget suit makers can achieve when they really set their minds to it.
