There aren't really any cannibals in Cannibal Holocaust II. It's been a few days since I've seen it so it's starting to feel like a fever dream, but I distinctly remember no on screen cannibalism.
I'm not going to lie to you. This article is an excuse to tell you to watch The Super Inframan.
This is one of those posters I had to spend several minutes looking at to ensure I was definitely a part of waking life and not merely dreaming.
American Hunter was apparently a key influence for Benjamin Marra's incredible Terror Assaulter (O.M.W.O.T.). The Arizal influence can definitely be seen in the ridiculous dialogue ("Let's just say, [insert something stupid here]"), the relentless explosions, and, of course, the absurd fight scenes.
Outback Vampires is not a lost Ozploitation classic, but for all its slog, I'm glad I checked it out. There's enough head-scratching weirdness to make it a worthwhile watch. It would have been an incredible experience to stumble across this on TV.
Combine that synopsis with the following beautiful poster and we could have one of the greatest films ever made on our hands. We don't, of course... but we could.
My favourite moment in Hot Lunch is when Desiree Cousteau and Brigit Olsen trade verbal blows in a battle for the film's (hysterically bland) leading stud. The dialogue has a John Waters-esque filth and absurdity to it. I love it!
In-between Karate Kids, Hollywood sought fit to grant Martin Kove a leading role in an action film. Does Kove have the charisma to pull off a starring role? Spoiler alert: no.
So, give Steve a chance? I say go for it, if you can get a hold of the movie and want something hokey, irreverent, and proud then you won't be disappointed.
Mid-punch action! Beams of light! Furious faces! Weapons! I highly recommend clicking through to see a blown up version of this out of control poster for Heroes Three!
It's Alive III: Island of the Alive is my favourite from Larry Cohen's mutant baby franchise. Why? Because it doesn't take itself seriously as witnessed in this insane opening scene.
