L412 Empire of Ash (88) aka: Empire of Ash 2 In post-nuclear 'New Idaho' a warrior and his battle skills savvy gal, set out to rescue her sister from one group that has kidnapped her. Guns aplenty, armor-plated vehicles, topless chicks, hard-rock soundtrack, mutated survivors, splotchy hatchet job editing and great fun. This film 'Empire of Ash' was released as 'Empire of Ash 2' the following year, but is the same film, hence the entirely different film 'Empire of Ash 3' which also came out the following year. Confused yet? And as far as passing the same film off as it's own sequel, genius! Followed by 'Empire of Ash (ahem) 3'! which is also known as 'Last of the Warriors'!

L414/4552 Empire of Ash 3 (89) Cult leader Lucas (played to the mad max by William Smith) reigns supreme here and must be toppled by our usual pack of freedom fighting do-gooders. Luckily we get all the fixin's. Leather-gear, open top jeeps and machine guns, mutants, cults, bad hair and more heavy metal. Basically all of the things that made 'Empire of Ash 1 (2) so frickin' awesome. Gun fights boobs and cannibals. I'm in. This 3 is really 2 but 1 is 2 so 3 it is.

Z494 Final Executioner, The (84) aka: L'ultimo guerriero Finally a LBX version of this one! The end of the world has come and gone. The nuclear devastation didn't quite wipe out society completely however. Leave it up to the survivors to do that. A small group has taken it upon themselves to exterminate people they decide are 'inferior'... Of course this means people die, and others are looking for revenge! Violent action, tasteless rape, chases, explosions and more! Another fine addition to the Italian Post-Apocalyptic Genre. With villain 'Erasmus' played by Harrison Muller, who seemed to have a sort of mini-career playing in these apoc flicks. Margie (Hell of the Living Dead) stars, and Woody Strode as 'Sam'. LBX BA

Z477 Pretty Women Walking Through the City (86) aka: Lijepe zene prolaze kroz grad Belgrade in 2041 is a deserted city that looks like a wiped out wasteland. Here in this burned out city setting, a few older men try to raise a group of young girls/women in the ways of their Yugoslav ancestors. But International Repressors are arriving in an old steam train. Some of the girls are quite hot (see title). A gloomy setting and quite a compelling look at a future world after we are finished destroying this one. With English subtitles. BA

3815/7174 Rage (84) aka: A Man Called Rage aka: Rage - Fuoco incrociato aka: Rush 2Our usual 'Soldier of Fortune' type (Rage of the title played by Bruno Minniti) is captured and sent on a mission into a 'Forbidden Zone' to locate some life-restoring uranium. Others are also after the same thing (led by a villain named 'Slash'!), which provides the violent conflict. Together with his rag tag band of specifically skills based accomplices they set out. High octane ending will remind you of 'The Road Warrior'. An entirely entertaining and exciting post apocalyptic film. This is after the previous year's 'Rush'. Minniti was 'Thor' in the previous years 'Thor the Conqueror'. Also with eye candy Taida Urruzola with painted on jean shorts. Oh man. BA



Z464 Bad Girl Mako (71) aka: Furyô shôjô Mako aka: Wet Highway Mako and the other young girls are bullied by a gang ruling the city. Mako meets Hideo, and he helps them escape and they hide out in a bowling alley. But they are located by the boss and his thugs. Hideo escapes and is later killed by the boss. Heartbroken, Mako seeks revenge with her knife, which will soon be bloody!. She even kills her brother! Nudity, attempted rape, women smacked around like they are property, and a showdown at a very large swimming pool. LBX and with English subtitles. BA

P113 Deaf Mute Heroine (71) aka: Long ya jian Kick Ass Helen Ma is 'Ya Ba', a bounty hunter that always collects. She finds herself the hunted one when a wicked and crazed Princess orders her elimination. BA

Z536 Girl Boss Blues: Queen Bee Challenge (72) aka: Mesubachi no chosen Two Girl Bosses fight for the top. The Yakuza Boss decides to test them with a sexual challenge to see who is the best! Trapped, both are subject to the man's lust and sadistic assaults. Not too happy with this, they escape by joining forces against the Yakuza gang..... Reiko Ike returns! Simply amazing! LBX and with English subtitles. BA

Z514 Girl Boss Blues: Queen Bee's Counterattack (71) aka: aka: Queen Bee Strikes Again A girl boss may have her choice of the bikes and the boyfriend's. But the other girls are her rivals, and there is constant bitching and struggles with the power structure. The Yakuza Boss however is the real guy in charge. Reiko (Reiko Ike) manages to gain loyalty from women and men alike, some would die for her. And they do. Female gang action with loads of action and violence! LBX and with English subtitles. BA

J1 Martial Angels (01) aka: Chuet sik san tau Cat, was once part of group of female jewel thieves. Cat has gone straight, but the past always has a way of returning. Her former lover has been kidnapped. Cat must get the gang back together for a rescue. Now she must call Octopus, Monkey, Goldfish and others to help. Despite their strange names, all of these girls are not only smoking hot, but they could kick 'Charlie's Angels' asses in under 30 seconds. LBX and with English subtitles. BA

4258 Pink Angels (72) aka: Waylayed An openly gay biker gang encounter all types of harassment on their way to an L.A. drag convention. Also along the way they try on dresses at a clothing store and engage in a food fight at a roadside hot dog stand. Look Boys, I'm a Hotdog! Michael Pataki and Dan Haggerty play straight bikers. Funky soundtrack. What seems like a light-hearted romp turns deadly with an ending out of left field that must be seen to be believed! A complete mess of a film, but what a product of it's time, you are there! BA

Z527 Terrifying Girl's School Delinquents: Convulsion Group (73) aka: Kyofu joshikôkô: Furyo monzetsu guruupu Reike Ike returns, she's one cool chick. A mean nasty schoolgirl does as she pleases, her father is the school principle. Another girl of fair mind named Takako (Reike Ike) challenges her role as girl gang leader, and wins! Takako's father is killed by gangsters. Her mother is lost in booze. Takako hooks up with a guy to spy on the gangsters and he too is killed. Takako is not going to Tatakit any more. With her gang she attacks. Always a treat when a pissed off woman blasts bad bastards with a machine gun! LBX and with English subtitles. BA

P156 Women on the Run (93) aka: Chi luo kuang ben It's a violent female 'buddy' movie! Two mismatched heroines, a policewoman, and a drug-addicted prostitute, join forces to get revenge after both of them are betrayed. Both women are accomplished fighters, and the prostitute fights naked twice, although briefly, a most welcome inclusion. They fight off legions of mean rapist types, but become helpless victims as soon as a guy unzips his pants. Cheap and trashy Category Three that delivers on almost all counts. LBX and with English subtitles.


CLASSIC HORROR AND SCI-FI FILMS  {Choose any two CLASSIC titles to create your custom double feature for $14.00 on VHS OR DVD-R! }

H988 Creeper, The (48) A serum derived from a cat, created by a mad scientist, turns a man into a creeping 'cat-like' killer. Straight out of the Val Lewton play-book with dark shadowy worlds and dream sequence nightmares. Maybe one of a few were-cat flicks.... Two versions of 'The Cat People', 'Cat Girl'.... and let's not forget um... well? Beware of the transformation scene and avoid that paw at all costs! BA

Z405 Drums of Jeopardy, The (31) aka: Mark of Terror aka: La marca del terror Warner Oland stars as Dr. Boris Karlov (a play on a name?) who plans to avenge his daughter' suicide by knocking off a noble Russian family he holds responsible for their death. The Drums of Jeopardy describes a necklace found on his dead daughter, a gift from the Russian family. When the Russian's reach America he sends little drums from the necklace to each victim before killing them. Plenty of horror touches in this thriller. BA

Z406 Hound of the Baskervilles, The (37) aka: Der Hund von Baskerville No English language and No English subtitles in this German version of the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle tale. Opens with the standard prologue to the tale, explaining the cause of the curse. A pretty gnarly hound here, dressed up some to make it more menacing. Grim quicksand death and more!

H996 Intruder, The (33) Murder at sea before a wicked storm sinks our toy ship. The survivors find themselves on an island where they find a killer gorilla and a jungle man that talks to a skeleton. But is the gorilla really dangerous, or is it one of the survivors, who may really be a killer, the one they should be wary of? Oddball thriller/horror/mystery. BA

J20 Live Wire, The (35) aka: Ricardito Entre Chamas e Bandidos Another forgotten adventure! A man has returned from an uncharted island with a vase he found there. Sensing profit, an expedition is launched to return to the island. But a 'Bluto' looking guy stages a mutiny. Good thing a 'Popeye' type is aboard! Thrills, Chills and some comedy and racist touches (give some credit to Martin Turner!) Once on the island they find the remnants of a lost civilization. Richard Talmadge and Alberta Vaughn star. After 140 films, this would be her last picture.

Z541 Master of the World (34) aka: Der Herr der Welt A German scientist develops a robot monster machine to do the hard work and keep humans out of danger. The theme of this German science fiction film that was made before World War II is quite ambitious and prophetic. The creation of robots, superior to us in every way, to do the work of humans, and the threat to mankind when the robots are used as machines of war. Even now, brainiac fools are toying with A.I. in computers and machines. Nearly one hundred years ago, people knew this future was the beginning of the end. In German and with English subtitles.

Z394 World Will Shake, The (39) aka: The World Will Tremble aka: Le monde tremblera A scientist (Claude Dauphin) creates a machine that can predict the date and time of your death. Consumed by power, he uses it nefariously, watching the stock market tank due to his predictions and other disastrous occurrences brought on by his megalomania. Erich Von Stroheim also stars with alternative money-making intentions for the device, and eventually the people rise up in revolt and outrage.... Excellent science fiction and with English subtitles.



J19 Between Time and Timbuktu: A Space Fantasy (72) Comprised of excerpts from novels and stories by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. here is a mishmash sci-fi satire and the 'Chrono-Synclastic Infundibilum' in which a man is bounced around in time, space and place with infinite copies of himself. Astounding and imperfect but incredibly ambitious science fiction television from PBS and starring William Hickey, Dortha Duckworth, Kevin McCarthy, Susan Sullivan and more! BA

Z229 Black Crown (51) aka: La corona negra Film Noir from Spain with Femme Fatale Maria Felix as Mara! Mara suffers from amnesia, and hooks up with honest engineer Andres (Rossano Brazzi). But a local swindler grifter type (played by Vittorio Gassman) is suspicious and is going to try to find the flaws in this alleged facade so he can gain. Maria Felix was considered the most beautiful Mexican actress ever. She certainly is a contender. Here with English subtitles! BA

H970 Clan of Amazons (96) aka: Feng wu jiu tian 103 outstanding martial artists, and jewelry that is worth millions of dollars, all vanished mysteriously one night. 13 of the largest security agencies are losing their minds after losing their money. A dying man spells the truth about what happened to the money. Ghostly flying and masked, the worlds of sorcery and martial arts collide with action violence and betrayal. LBX and English subtitles

3340 Executioner of Venice, The (63) aka: Il boia di Venezia Nice costumed swashbuckler with Lex Barker as the hero, Guy Madison as the dastardly villain, Mario Petri as a pirate and Alessandra Panaro as the love of Barker's character, who, thinking her love is dead, seeks to become a nun! Powerful music, stellar stunts and plenty of swashbuckling (agile actors leaping about and fencing) amidst well photographed Venice locations with high production values. BA

Z430 Flashman (67) aka: Flashman contra el hombre invisible Not only is he a member of the Royal Family, Lord Alex Burman (Paolo Gozlino) is also secretly the Superhero, Flashman (in a hilarious 'Superhero' suit, no less hilarious than Ben Affleck as 'Batman' however)! An invisibility serum is being used for nefarious means. Can Flashman insert himself into the plot and save the day using his headquarters in London as his base? I have a feeling Flashman will prevail. And look at the sexy Claudie Lange as Alika and all of the other sexy girls here. And why wouldn't you? Nice locations and very colorful LBX Upgrade of this title. BA

T618 Gideon and Samson (65) aka: I grandi condottieri Nice Biblical Spaghetti here with wonderfully bad sets and two tales told in a different way. You get Rosalba Neri as Delilah, and even though Hedy Lamar nailed it 20 years earlier, Neri is sleazier and for my buck the hooter....er hotter dame. Sorry for the ogling of a beauty when reviewing a movie of Bible tales.... not really sorry though. Fernando Rey is an 'Angel of the Lord". It's a spectacular hokey Bible epic. BA

1402 Girl of the Nile (69) aka: The Emerald of Artatama aka: La muchacha del Nilo A treasure hunting expedition travels deep into the Egyptian desert. When they discover a lost ancient tomb, greed begins to take over. Rory Calhoun as a hard-drinking, two-fisted conman and womanizer (quite a likable fellow actually) who is after the emerald, that is as large as a man's fist! Hijackers, loan sharks, desert bandits, clingy women and more. With Esperanza Roy and more. BA

2488 Gold of the Amazon Women (79) aka: Weiße Sklavin der grünen Hölle Adventurer Tom Jenson (Bo Svenson) is on a quest to locate the fabled lost city of El Dorado, and the treasures within. Tagging along is his trusty sidekick. They are captured by a tribe of gorgeous Amazon women led by Anita Ekberg! Men in cages forced to sexually satisfy Amazon women! Donald Pleasence is the villain, also after the gold! Helicopter attack, poison ants, snakes, crocodiles, a battle between the Amazons and blow-dart spitting natives, fistfights, smack addicted jungle women... and the lost city of course! BA

Z428 Golden Goddess of Rio Bene (64) aka: Die goldene Göttin vom Rio Beniaka:Per un pugno di diamanti An expedition is looking for a person who crash landed somewhere in the Amazon, taking a large boat down the mighty river. The searchers join up with some treasure hunters. Running into various cannibal tribes, one of the groups men falls for the blonde haired daughter of one of the chiefs. Headhunters, big-ass snakes, large waterfalls, booby traps, skulls on spears, shrunken heads, one hell of a showdown with savages, and a lost treasure filled temple. Oh, a guy is eaten by dozens of alligators too! Has the vibe of what was to come with the cannibal films 15-16 years later (you'll see). Watch for the ‘man with snake fighting another man with snake’ sequence. Ambitious. Pierre Brice and Gillian Hills star. BA

Z420 Hercules in the Valley of Woe (61) aka: Maciste contro Ercole nella valle dei guai A comic take on the sword and sandal with a time travel element. Get over it! This is hilarious. It's bad in a good way. Two wrestling promoters (they promote midget fighters!) use a time machine and find themselves trouble in the distant past. They need the help of 'Hercules' to save them from Ghengis Khan and his hordes, and also from a giant Cyclops that puts them in a cage. Mermaids, Witches, Feats of Strength, a Minotaur Man, other animal-headed guys...more. Hercules is an unknown. Kirk Morris is Maciste. With Liana Orfei and more. BA

Z429 Iguassu: The Devil's Throat (60) aka: Na Garganta do Diabo This movie was filmed in the National Parks of Iguassu in Brazil and Argentina; the location of the largest waterfalls in the world. Four deserters from the wars (Brazil and Paraguaya fighting in swamps and jungles hundreds of miles from civilization from 1864 to 1870) hide in an old drunkard's country seat. The two daughter's are reclusive and unhappy. Now there are four strange men in the house, appreciating the booze, and gawking at the women.... Conflicts and some amazing scenery and eventual confrontation with Aztec like tribes....

Q546 Il Mare (00) aka: Siworae Soapy time travel, remade as the miserably bad 'The Lake House' in 2006 in America. The sappiness here is only with a pinch of salt, the cinematography is top-notch. Letters are sent across time as one communicates from the future with someone a few years in the past and vice versa. Letters in mailboxes? May confuse millennials. LBX and English subtitles

Z426 Jungle Princess (56) aka: Prinsesa ng kagubatan This motion picture is based on fact. Historical research reveals that a Spanish expedition was sent to a small island off the coast of Mindora inhabited by a fierce and primitive tribe. Believing the island to be rich in gold the Spaniards come. This is a depiction of what is thought to have taken place. Low on dialogue, good since there are no subtitles. Just jungle action and adventure. Blow darts, a man fights a cow (a cow?), some dangerous looking action locations, alligator battle, swashbuckling showdowns... F.L.

Z427 Karamoja (55) aka: Wang, Wang Join our daring explorers as they travel deep into darkest Africa and film the wild savages that prance about in their daily activities butt naked. Willy's here. Johnson, Shaft, Dixson... and let's not forget Tally (who's also known as 'Whacker'). Lifestyles of the poor and famished. Primitives gut animals, body mutilate one another, stare at the camera with 'boy would I like to eat you' looks in their eyes, and enact pointless rituals of pain upon one another, make spears etc.... The women have long ugly saggy boobs.... this ain't no beauty pageant, ugh! A horrifying 'Mondo Kane' type. One of the first of it's kind, and tough to watch at times because it is so real! God this is offensive! A compelling must see documentary with English narration. BA

Z496 Karl Zeman: Film Adventurer (15) A look into the wonderful world of the most creative mind of the Czech Republic. The man was a genius. Hardworking and innovative, he was the Harryhausen of his field in his location. We know him of course from his adaptations of Jules Verne films, the special effects unusual and timeless. He used so many different techniques, it is almost impossible to nail them all down in this review. 'A Journey to the Beginning of Time' is just one example of his special effects work. Ask for it. In Czech language and with English subtitles.

Z397 Krakatit (48) Sounds painful, and just plain wrong. Prokop has developed a lethal explosive named 'Krakatit'. But when he falls ill. Krakatit falls into the wrong hands. Prokop falls in and out of consciousness, nightmarishly dreaming of what his creation could mean for mankind. Florence (Queen of Blood) Marly stars as a femme fatale, slithering in the shadows to kill every film noir loner in sight. This unique Czech film will take you on a journey. Florence Marly, known as the blood craving alien vampire in 'Queen of Blood' died of a heart attack at age 59 in California in 1978. This film has English subtitles.

Z470 Last Days of Gomorrah (74) aka: Die letzten Tage von Gomorrha MFTV Science Fiction from Germany! A nightmare about a society that is lost and crazed on consumption, Dead center in the madness, a woman (played by Mascha Rabben), fights against the system when her partner seems to disappear into a mysterious monstrous machine.... a machine chosen as a metaphor by the director, as a punishment, the consequences of worshipping the entertainment industry through television addiction..... Weird film with lots of prophetic wisdom put forth by the female director Helma Saanders-Brahms. With English subtitles.

Z401 Magic Serpent, The (66) aka: Kairyu daikessen Loved this as a kid, and as a fantastic fantasy film, it still stands the test of time. Ancient Japan. A Prince and a Sorcerer are engaged in battle. A head talks and flies and returns to the body, sweeping outdoor landscapes. a guy chews off his own tongue and blood comes from his mouth, flying on laser beams, a giant colorful toad monster with a big horn destroys and stomps on people (via big prop monster feet), sword fights, and finally, The Magic Serpent, an impressive Japanese monster in a throw down with fire-breathing toad monster. Simply incredible for fans of 'Majin' and 'Godzilla'. Wait! A Giant Spider is coming out of the sky! Cool. Now LBX and dubbed into English Upgrade! BA

Z419 Minotaur, the Wild Beast of Crete, The (60) aka: Teseo contro il minotauro King Mino sacrifices nubile young virgins to the Minotaur. The King has two daughters, one evil, one good (Rossana Schiaffino in a dual role). In the first 5 minutes you get the beast claiming a nice blonde, and a maiden dance with 10 or so cute women in skimpy clothing. Beautiful outdoor cinematography, excellent sets and Bava-like atmosphere in places, and a cool as hell monster created by Carlo Rambaldi (the Stan Winston of Italy). Excellent sword and sandal stab at Greek Mythology. Now LBX BA

H971 Mission Mars (68) aka: Lost in the Dark Landing on Mars, three American astronauts (Nick Adams and Darren McGavin play two of them!) discover the corpse of a frozen Russian. Okay, so they beat us to Mars. Marvel at the incredibly cheap special effects in this film. The absence of intelligence in depicting space travel and survival on Mars, the quick cook omelets from yellow pills, the cheesy flashback sequences, nice and cheap miniatures... Nick Adams even smuggles a thick pastrami sandwich on board, eating it in front of the other jealous astronauts. Why didn't I think of that? Indeed. Essential viewing and great fun. Double feature it with '2001' which was made the same year. Or maybe, don't. Nick Adams did not live to see this film released. He died of a drug overdose in Beverly Hills in February 1968 at the age of 36. BA

Z404 Morel's Invention (74) aka: L'invenzione di Morel A castaway explores the island he has found himself upon and discovers it full of strange buildings and people. But they repeat their behavior day by day and completely ignore him. He falls for a woman (who also ignores him), and eventually finds out these people really are dead, and this is nothing but a giant '3-D' movie, captured by a camera, and all invented by Dr. Morel! Our castaway thinks of inserting himself into the storyline..... With English subtitles.

Z396 Mysterious Island (41) aka: Tainstvennyy ostrov Here we have the Russian version of the classic Jules Verne story. The story is the same with five fugitives escaping during the Civil War. They start to fall, cut the basket, hold on, and crash ashore onto the Mysterious Island! They soon find the island is populated by wild animals, sometimes pirates, and they take in a muscular cave man. Enter Captain Nemo! No subtitles, so you need to know Russian if you have to know what is being said. If you are familiar with the story, you'll pretty much get the gist. F.L.

Z395 Princess Cinderella (41) aka: Cenerentola e il signor Bonaventura I know you all have wondered what happened to 'Cinderella' after she was rescued by the Prince. This oddball addition to the fantasy genre has Kings and Queens, creepy and funny fairy tale characters including a large-nosed witch, and an ogre-devil guy that throws little black bombs with 'Death' printed on them. Cinderella is played by Silvana Jachino who would much later make it into such peplum as 'Caesar and the Pirates' in 1962.

Z399 Rip Van Winkle (60) aka: Rip Van Wyk Guy gets drunk in 1859 and meets a strange supernatural man who gives him a potion and he does drink. He is transported to 1959, 100 years into the future. Befuddled, bewildered, he stumbles about in this new world in a series of 'fish out of water' scenarios. Especially interesting is the women of this new world who sport tight skirts instead of the cumbersome outfits of old. Now that's progress! Will anybody believe his tale? Would you?

H995 Rocket Attack U.S.A. (61) aka: Guided Terror The plot still resonates and applies to the world we live in today. Will the American Secret Agent be able to stop the Russians from launching a nuclear attack on America? From the paranoia of 'Sputnik' and the beginning of the race to space... this would be the resulting film from the maker of 'The Dead One' made the year before, and he followed with dozens and dozens of sexploitation classics. Better than 'First Man'! BA

H999 Sea Devils (82) aka: Los diablos del mar Based on the Jules Verne story 'The Fifteen Year Old Pirate'. A ship on the sea is attacked by a slave hunter. The six women on board are captured. Lots of at sea peril, a thrilling near fatal quicksand encounter with a woman barely being rescued in time, grisly scenes of lions eating zebras, a charging elephant, alligators, wild savages, Arabs, fire, romance... and Patty Shepard. Aldo Sambrell, Frank Brana, Gerard Tichy and more. Dubbed into English language and slightly LBX. BA

Z422 Seven From Thebes (64) aka: Sette a Tebe When the city of Thebes comes under siege from Sparta, Diomedes and his fellows rebel, even as Diomedes romances Dorida, the daughter of the traitorous governor of Thebes, who is conspiring with Sparta. When reading about this title I am fascinated that one of it's talked about points of interest is 'man in towel'. While I am glad this film is of interest, I am baffled that this could be a reason to watch the film. Battles, Fires, Torture...more! Also with the tasty Loredana Nusciak and the yummy Lena von Martens who was also in 'The Fall of the Roman Empire', and let’s not forget ’man in towel’!! BA

Z481 Sins of Lucrezia Borgia (53) aka: Lucrèce Borgia Finally with English subtitles! Lavish, lively and colorful as our ravishing beauty Lucrezia (doe-eyed Martine Carol) marries her second husband, and also takes several lovers who follow him. Scandals plague the Borgias, there are even hints at an incestuous relationship with her brother! Numerous foes are assassinated by an assortment of means, the families penchant for cruelty evident where they laugh at prisoners being tortured for entertainment and later men are hunted and killed for sport. Nice sharp color picture. Nudity from Martine Carol and later more topless women in an orgy scene! They even dump wine on a woman's breasts! For 1953, this is some explicit stuff. The locations and set designs are without equal. Castles, a midget, treacherous female.... sounds familiar. Martine Carol, a livin' doll, lived a troubled life. She tossed herself off a bridge into the Seine River in Paris in 1947. She survived. She would marry 4 times in a 16 year period. She was found dead by her fourth husband at age 46. Heart attack or intentional drug overdose? With English subtitles. BA

Z439 Slave Girls of Sheba (63) aka: Le verdi bandiere di Allah Pirates attack Christians along the Spanish Coast. Of course, slave girls are a valued commodity as well. But a shipload of sexy women can present other problems....Some of the scenes locations reminded me of the recent 'Black Sails'. Good action and some scenes looked pretty dangerous. While I suppose Jose Suarez is the star of this obscurity, I would give it to Linda Cristal as Olivia and Cristina Gaioni as Ursula. BA

Z421 Sword of the Empire (64) aka: Una spada per l'impero Rome in the Year 190 A.D. during the reign of the Emperor Commodus. Military skirmishes and Senate meetings and a plot similar in part to 'The Fall of the Roman Empire'. Mixed in our characters are Christians, Battling Barbarians, Muscles and Swords Bearing Big Men and more. At one point the men all seem to be in what looks like a 'gay bath house'. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Lots of Fire in the finale as they fight while trying to rescue women from being burned at the stake. Lang Jeffries, Jose Greci and more! BA

Z438 Typhoon Reporter (63) aka: Wind Velocity 75 Meters aka: Fûsoku nanajû-go mêtoru When a reporter is investigating a murder in Tokyo's world of construction.... the story plays out in detail and intrigue. But things are going to be out on hold! The storm hits and tears the hell out of Tokyo with nice action and destruction of miniatures. LBX and with English subtitles. BA

Z437 Woman of Evil, A (54) aka: Queen Margot aka: La reine Margot On the 18th of August, 1572, was celebrated the marriage of Henry of Navarre to Marguerite de Valois, sister of King Charles the 9th and the Duke of Anjou. The Queen Mother, Catherine de Medicis, taking advantage of the weakness of the King, continued to direct the affairs of the kingdom. She had desired this union of her daughter to a Protestant Prince, leader of the Augueuots, apparently to put an end to the murderous struggles which for twelve years had divided Catholics and Protestants. However, while spectacular ceremonies of reconciliation were taking place at the Louvre... Swashbuckler with Jeanne Moreau and her nipples nicely evident underneath her thin outfit in one scene, look quick! BA



9845 ...And Give Us Our Daily Sex (79) aka: El periscopio Bi-Sexual nurses Amiga (Laura Gemser) and Veronica (Barbara Rey) live upstairs from a couple and their sex obsessed teenage son. The wife has a lover. The boy develops a problem with his groin area (after spying on the ladies with his self-made periscope!), and they call in Amiga, who, with her nursing skills and all, sees the problem quite clearly, and she wanks the young man off right in front of his parents! That's how I spell relief! You may remember big-lipped blonde bimbo Barbara Rey from 'The Night of the Sorcerers' and 'Horror of the Zombies', Ossorio films both. BA

Z531 3 Swedish Girls in Hamburg (80) aka: Drei Schwedinnen auf der Reeperbahn Young people visit, some looking to score, others to lose their virginity (well you know, that's scoring too, but for the first time, it's different?). Lil hopes to find her crush, her geography teacher wants to conquer her however, and hopes to do just that! Let's face it, there are a number of hot women to ogle in this sexy film, including Bea Fiedler and Gina Janssen! Dubbed into English! BA

H991 Adventures of a Plumber's Mate (78) Sid South (Christopher Nell) is one horny plumber. Luckily his job offers him up situations and opportunities. But mostly, he gets himself in comic misadventures as he tries to keep ahead of the bookies. 'Ello Darlin' I'm here to service your pipes!'. Elaine Page and Liny Benson also star. + Trailer BA

H992 Adventures of a Private Eye (77) aka: Mein lieber Boss, Du bist 'ne Flasche! The main Private Eye is on vacation, and his assistant Bob West (Christopher Nell) decides to do the latest investigation his way. The opening sequence is 'laugh-out-loud' stuff. These 'Adventures' films were the direct competition to the 'Confessions...' series which mostly starred Robin Askwith. This one boasts your typical nudity with beautiful women and comic situations told with tongue firmly in cheek (cheeky?). Suzy Kendall, Diana Dors, Adrienne Posta (doing a Liza Minnelli gag), Jon Pertwee and many more. + Trailer BA

H994 Adventures of a Taxi Driver (76) aka: Les aventures érotiques d'un chauffeur de taxi Joe North (Barry Evans) is a taxi driver with a perpetual boner. At least it seems that way. Joe gets himself into all kinds of misadventures. Interestingly this film made more British box office cash than 'Taxi Driver'! Due to star Barry Evans, very popular at the time, but on the decline. He died at age 53 after drinking himself to death in 1997. Another strong cast. Judy Geeson, Diana Dors, Adrienne Posta, Anna Bergman and look for an uncredited Pete Walker as a Rolls Royce Driver! BA

T837 All the Lovin' Kinfolk (70) aka: Junge Körper - hemmungslos Two cute hillbilly cousins graduate from high school and set out to seek their fortunes in the big city and receive a sexual culture shock. Lots of soft-core sex and ample breasts. Mady Maguire, Donna Young and an unforgettable appearance from Uschi Digard as a Hooker in Black. From the director of 'Jailbait Babysitter'.

4779 Autumn Born (79) aka: Playmate Lady O. Torrid tale of a young heiress named Tara (19 year old Dorothy Stratton) who is kidnapped and locked in a room until she promises to give up her fortune. See Dorothy yell at the walls pleading for the music to stop! See Dorothy bond with a wind up toy mouse! See Dorothy look super uncomfortable as she takes a naked bath! See Dorothy in a soft-core sex scene with another woman! See Dorothy act, awfully! Sadly, Stratton never had a chance to develop her acting chops since her husband raped and murdered her when she was only 20 years old the year after this was made. BA

H972 Behind the Scenes of an Adult Movie (84) Sordid and tacky documentary on the sex film industry with sex scenes blended in and cleverly edited so you see no penetration, although you see everything else. San Francisco is the setting for the true sleaze. and loads of ahem... familiar faces are on board to discuss their chosen profession, and provide copious nudity. Auditions of desperate sexy wiggling and jiggly naked bimbos. Plenty of sex. Veronica Hart, Samantha Fox and more talk. Respectably done, but of course, this is about sex and has on set behind the scenes footage with Danielle and others!! Near Hardcore all the way through. Some glitches on this rare master from an Australian tape.

8829 Big Bet, The (85) aka: Nachhilfe in Sachen Liebe A day-dreaming dipshit named Chris, makes a bet with another asshole that if he can nail the new chick (the Reverend's Daughter!) he gets the assholes car. If Chris loses, asshole gets his car. There is also a time limit to 'score'! As we get closer and the clock ticks... it seems he will not be able to seal the deal.... Enter Michelle (Sylvia Kristel), the sexy neighbor that gives Chris some love advice! Also with knockout Kim Evenson and Monique Gabrielle as 'Fantasy Girl in Elevator'. Nudity of course! One scene has Georgina Spelvin raping another woman! BA

Q22 Big Gag, The (87) aka: Nipagesh Basivuv Sexploitation farce from Israel? Yep! Sort of. More like a 'Candid Camera' type rip-off. There are a couple of politically incorrect pranks, that would never fly today, but that's okay. Thankfully we have plenty of sexually incorrect comedy from the 80's to last a lifetime. In one bit a stacked blonde wearing a mini-skirt is walking along and drops her basket of apples. Men all around stop to help her, one guy peeking up her skirt! They even make the apples fall again so they can watch her pick them up again. The dogs! Sort of mild, could have been sleazier, bit still worth a look!

9856 Big Swap, The (98) aka: Let's Talk About Sex Five thirty-something couples who have known each other for some time, decide to swap partners in a one-time deal to spice things up. Things go good maybe... and everybody gets their rocks off, but one guy goes all mental, and the psychological effects of such an experiment may have a positive outcome for some, complete disaster for others. Nudity, some sexual situations and lots of frank talk. BA

L468 Black Fire (79) aka: Fuego negro aka: Sort Opror Move over 'Mandingo' this film manages to deliver some of the same impact on a shoestring budget! A rural southern area refuses to free the blacks when slavery is abolished. 'Tomorrow, we'll take the plantation!' The young blonde plantation owner's daughter is the only one sympathetic to their plight, and the blacks protect her while they kill all the white men. One scene they ride with a former slave master's head on a stick. Yvonne De Carlo is on hand as well. playing a non-violent lady of the plantation. Blacks are whipped, engage in voodoo native dancing, raped... people are killed.... Another film that would cause riots today. Quality not as good as usual. In English language and with foreign subtitles. BA

T494 Black Venus (83) aka: La vénus noire Late 19th century Paris. A sculptor who has lost his mojo finds a muse in the appearance of a beautiful black Venus (Bahamas born Josephine Jacqueline Jones a complete knockout!) The sculptor meets her at a party, takes her home, sculpts her, beds her.... But when she tries to get a bit of independence, he casts her out into the streets and she winds up turning tricks in a brothel, while the sculptor begins a drinking binge.... What now? Euro-soft-core with a tremendous budget!

Z440 Hang-Up, The (69) aka: Vice Cop 69 Sgt. Walsh (Tony Vorno) hates freaks and deviates of all kinds. In the opening sequence he (and his partner) are in drag, trying to catch some low-life's for some crime. But his heart is softened by the sultry prostitute named Angel (Sharon Matt). Sgt. Walsh, who wants to bust 'the faggots' finds himself in a compromising position, maybe a bit like Peter Boyle's 'Joe' . Tony Vorno has a short, but interesting resume of 17 films, and Sharon Matt, this would be her last film before she disappeared. A suitable sleazy crime film, nicely photographed. BA

Z515 High School Girl's Diary (81) aka: Jokosei nise nikki Pinku sexploitation about a pretty young woman that starts to pose for a sleazy photographer which opens up a new world of sexuality for her. Here we have a steering away of so much violence usually associated with the pinku, and a focus on horniness and sex. That being said, this is some hot stuff! LBX and with English subtitles. BA

H986 Hot Resort (85) aka: Hot Summer A resort hotel in the Caribbean seems to be the best place to get a job to maybe get close to some nice tail.... at least that is the plan put into place by these young guys. Don't complicate the plot, horny guys try to score with (hopefully) horny girls. A complete and total lack of morals (or ethics) drives them. Will the lowly pool boy get the rich, hot chick? Will the fat kid get laid? Politically incorrect stereotypes include Stephen Stucker (a gay actor that died of AIDS the following year), Bronson Pinchot, Dan Schneider, Frank Gorshin and out of nowhere Michael Craig. Funny in a lowbrow way, and who doesn't dig that? Nudity. BA

Z469 Hurrah! The Schoolgirls are Here! (75) aka: Attenti... arrivano le collegiali!aka: Die Schulmädchen kommen A private girl's school sets some of the students loose for a few days at a seaside hotel owned by one of their parents, with an understanding that they will behave and their virtues will not be compromised. Imagine, sending these young sexy and well built young ladies into the presence of strapping young men (and middle-aged men) expecting no sexual hijinks will occur! Of course they will, and they do. Plenty of nudity from gorgeous ladies here! Orchidea de Santis and many more star! LBX and with English subtitles. BA

Z516 Keep It Up Downstairs (76) aka: Purché si faccia con gusto Masters... Mistresses... Servants.... a setting usually a bit too snotty and highbrow... but not when they are all sex-obsessed aristocrats and their equally randy house helpers! I think one of the more interesting aspects of this British sexploitation is the unusual assortment of actors. Jack Wild is Peregrine Cockshute, already in a downward spiral career-wise. Diana Dors also stars (both of these actors dead early, Wild at 52 from tongue and throat cancer, Dors from ovarian cancer aged 53). Luscious Sue Longhurst, Olivia Munday, Serreta Wilson and sex queen Mary Millington as Polly (Millington of course would kill herself a few years later at age 33). LBX BA

Z472 Love on the Quiet (85) aka: L'amour en douce A man and wife break up and find other lovers, he an expensive hooker named Samantha (Emmanuelle Beart), she, a guy named Antoine. In a very French series of events, they all live together and are fine with the situation, the couple still having mutual affection for one another, but accepting the fact that each needs a different sex partner. Things seem okay until one of Samantha's former boyfriends shows up.... Beart here at age 22 is a total knockout. LBX and with English subtitles.

Z442 Moonlighting Wives (66) Setting up a stenography business, a housewife realizes the clients are more interested in the female workers she has gathered from the neighborhood than dictation. So she flips it into a prostitution group instead! Success! Joe Sarno directed this sleaze in Amityville, Long Island. Sarno was just getting started. Nice Upgrade!

Z546 Painful Bliss Final Twist (77) aka: Monzetsu!! DondengaeshiSo, a guy named Toshio picks up a whore named Midori in a titty bar.. Midori happens to have a psychotic pimp named Kawasaki, that takes a liking to Toshio. And I mean 'a liking'! 'Just pretend I'm a woman and let's see what happens!' says Kawasaki. Toshio may just become the pimps new bitch! Wickedly wild gender bender oddity from the clown prince of pinku perversion 'Tatsumi Kumashiro'! LBX and with English subtitles.

Z423 Passionate Demons, The (61) aka: Line Chalk one up for the Norwegians. A J.D. film from Norway! A young man battles with his father, and romances a very cute young blonde. Can she tame him with her passionate petting and kisses? What more could matter? Drinking, Rocking, Dancing, Boating..... Another hot little nympho has her eyes set on him. Will he cross the line? He is one aggressive lame-ass son of a bitch, as we will eventually learn. He strangles and kills the hot blonde. Is she really dead? What now? With English subtitles. BA

Z476 Playa Azul (82) aka: Black Sands - Am Anfang war die Liebe Sexy ladies seduce younger men while on holiday in Spain! Need I say more? How about Helga Line (older and still horny, she mentors the others), Juanita Brown and more star. In Spanish language only Helga Line would appear in 'Black Candles' next. Juanita Brown's last film. She was in 'Foxy Brown' and 'Caged Heat' and somehow wound up in this Spanish sleaze and was never seen again on camera! F.L.

Z480 Rosie Dixon: Night Nurse (78) Cute young Rosie Dixon (Debbie Ash) has just started her nurse's training at the hospital. But well, the patients and the rascally and randy males around the place, can't seem to keep their hands to themselves. Groping, objectification of women, political incorrectness..... you know, the good old days! Rosie finds herself sexually assaulted (always in a humorous way) constantly, but she also finds love (isn't it sweet?). This film could never be made today, but perverts chasing women were a staple of British films in the late 60's and all through the 1970's when things were a bit less serious and everything was not taken so literally. BA

J67 School Teacher, The (75) aka: L'insegnante aka: La prof donne des leçons particulières Before 'Private Lessons', here we have Edwige Fenech as a tutor to a slow-learner (played by a 20 year old guy). Fenech shows plenty of skin, and the jokes come low-brow, politically incorrect and even mean-spirited. In one of the opening scenes, boys spy on two girls who are handling their boobs, and judging them for awesomeness. The guy is so desperate to sleep with Fenech he pretends he is gay, maybe she can 'fix' him? It is only when he fakes his suicide that he finally gets lucky. LBX BA

Z523 Secrets of Love 3 and 4 (86) aka: The Secrets of Love: Three Rakish Tales Erotic tales dubbed into English language (hilariously!). Okay, P.C. freaks clear out, this picture is not for you. Come to think about it, anybody into exploitation films simply cannot be P.C. or they would probably have anxiety attacks daily! Maybe we could fix things if all the colleges in the country had mandatory showings of 'Porkys' followed by 'Hard Bodies'. Remind youth that this is their time to have fun. The Contest: Two students try to take advantage of a learned old man blessed with a beautiful wife. The Spanking: Young working girls plot to avenge herself against the Madame of the house for having her whipped bare-assed for sleeping with her lover. The Greenhouse tells the familiar story formula used frequent by Jess Franco. It is about a young servant girl named Celestine and the spirit of erotic rejuvenation that she brings into a bored, sexless, middle-aged household. The Pupil: Attends the dual seduction of an unwitting milkmaid by an aging man and his nephew.

H998 Sin of Adam and Eve, The (69) aka: El pecado de Adán y Eva Adam thinks about the 'good old days' before they listened to the devil, before Eve ate the apple.... and the tale goes all the way into the 'Sin'. Thankfully the focus is more on boobs than the bible. Eve is played by 'Kandy' simply the only film she was in as far as we know. Adam however is played by popular Mexican actor Jorge Rivero, a man with quite a few titles on his resume. Not much dialogue in this movie, mostly grunting and pointing. Very primal and rough around the edges... Adam does have many wild animal encounters in the beautiful garden of Eden... But if you want a piece of Kandy.... English language BA

Z525 Soldier with Great Maneuvers, The (78) aka: La soldatessa alle grandi manovre Doctor Eva Marini takes up a position at an army base with an unusual assignment. The study of the sexuality of the male soldier. It doesn't take long before she realizes she has bitten off more than she can chew. Blobby hooker, a transvestite, retarded men, fart jokes.... and the lovely Edwige Fenech. LBX and with English subtitles. BA

Z483 Student Report (78) aka: Lover Girls aka: Studentinnen-Report aka: Blue Sensation aka: Some Like it Sexy A villa in Athens, Greece, is the temporary home of three extremely hot and horny studying students. They are busy getting it on when the mother of one of them shows up. One fat mama let me tell you. Butt naked in bed with their lovers, they hide the men. Luckily, fat mama finds an admirer as well. You'll howl as he tries to make love to her! He resembles a horny pygmy on an elephant! 'Mama Mia!' he exclaims, as he tries to get a mouth on that colossal hooter! Hysterical low-brow fun is had by all! Softcore with plenty of nudity and dubbed into English!




Z417 Alice or the Last Escapade (77) aka: Alice ou la dernière fugue In a marital squabble, Alice ( the gratuitously tasty Sylvia Kristel looking just lovely) goes off and over a wall into a series of strange adventures.... ending up in an eerie mansion. You can check in any time you like... but can you ever leave? Maybe not. It seems Alice has stepped into some sort of 'Twilight Zone' situation. It doesn't hurt that Kristel gives us a full frontal shot either. With English subtitles. BA

8376 Alien Warrior (86) aka: King of the Streets A handsome badass alien from another dimension lands on earth to combat the 'Great Evil' ... namely, street gangs, drug dealers and corrupt cops. He falls for a woman who's life goal is to teach inner-city kids to read more. Then he manages to piss off the local drug lord. who vows to destroy him, Violent rapes, car explosions, a black guy running around in his underwear sporting an Uzi, and break dancing with an awesome Casio keyboard soundtrack. Great trash. You'll laugh until you cry. BA

H977 Almost Blue (00) There is a serial killer terrorizing the Italian town of Bologna who goes by the name 'The Iguana', due to his ability to change his identity at will. The cops are baffled, but a blind guy, obsessed with a jazz song 'Almost Blue', knows something.... This one reminds of Michael Mann's 'Manhunter' with the psychology of the three main characters. The police officer in charge of the search, the killer, and the blind guy. An interesting analysis of a killer, some plot twists, and quite violent as well. With English subtitles and LBX. BA

H974 Anemia (86) A high-ranking officer of the Italian Communist Party discovers he is a vampire and leaves his position, retreating to the abandoned residence of his deceased grandfather. There he finds the diary of his grandfather that gives him the answers he needs. Dark in atmosphere, some blood and nudity. Italian Vampire Movie with English subtitles

H975 Angel of Death: Fuck or Die (98) aka: Der Todesengel Gore and Sex collide in this one. A plethora of subplots which basically involve women either stripping or being abused, which ultimately shapes up as a battle of wills between a nude model turned lesbian assassin named Manila, and an organized crime syndicate who pimp kidnapped women. Manila is raped and left for dead, but she survives and begins her man-killing rampage! LBX and with English subtitles

Z412 Awakening of the Beast (70) aka: O Ritual dos Sádicos Four volunteers take acid to determine if the influence Coffin Joe has on them is positive or negative. Each patient displays a different result, and we get a woman stripping in the first sequence in front of the others. But what she does next sets the tone for twisted perversion. This one is pretty sick and twisted. Coffin Joe in the swinging sixties. While most of the film is in black and white, the gimmick is the LSD sequences (that get really strange) are in loud colors! Rape, Madness and more.... Daring and disturbing for it's time. With English subtitles and LBX BA

Z432 Black Veil for Lisa, A (68) aka: La morte non ha sesso Corrupt Inspector (John Mills) suspects his flame-haired beauty of a wife (Luciana Paluzzi) of cheating, and hires a handsome shady thug (Robert Hoffman) to murder her. But who is the black-gloved killer that is on the loose murdering innocents? Character driven Giallo masterpiece with a really cool twist about halfway through the movie. Paluzzi is mesmerizing. Genuinely thrilling tale here of murder and intrigue. Now LBX so Upgrade! BA

Z511 Caged (11) Sexy Stella is tired of repressing her sexual desires. Off she goes into a life of sex clubs and erotic parties, cuckolding her husband, as he is helpless to stop her. Partying and Sex. Reckless. One morning she wakes up in a cage in somebody's basement. No idea how she got there. Days pass. Another woman arrives in the cell. Is this a result of her dangerous nymphomania? What's next? Lots of nudity and sex. In Dutch language and with English subtitles. LBX BA

J64 Contos De Horror (97) aka: Horror Tales More Jose Mojica Marins (Coffin Joe). A woman who has been raped and murdered is back from the grave, reincarnated into a maid. When she enters into employment, the flowers, trees, birds and animals in the area die. In her room she worships Satan, and plans to deal death to all men. She forces one young man to rape and kill his fiancé. Rape and Murder and now with English subtitles! BA

J50 Daughters of Fire (78) aka: As Filhas Do Fogo A couple of lesbians live in a secluded house in the countryside. They become acquainted with a mysterious family friend who claims to record voices of the dead. But this raises the dead, in this case, the mother of one of them! The line between this world and the next becomes blurry... and eventually escalates into a totally nightmarish finale that echoes Mario Bava's 'Kill Baby Kill'. Much of the horror comes from the imagery, and this film is dripping with haunted atmospheres and eerie use of locations, bleeding trees, howling winds, darkened ponds and colorful vegetation. Stark beauty in a doomy setting. Now with English subtitles.

Z414 Death by Invitation (71) A woman is accused and tried as a witch by angry villagers in the opening sequence. Flash forward to the future where we meet her descendant Lise. Many of the people look the same because they are also descendants. Lise (sexy Shelby Leverington in her debut) delivers some sensuality to the proceedings. She decides to avenge her ancestor by killing the descendants of the killers. Very colorful low-budget horror. Upgrade!

L272 Death Curse, The (03) aka: Goo chak sam fong fong Bitchy malcontent Nancy travels to her ancestral home in hopes of an inheritance claim. Once there she finds she has many relatives she has never known, all there for the same reason, all birthed by different mothers, the father the only constant. Conditions of getting any money include spending evenings at a large table with her relatives, and the corpse of her father, then all hugs before bed. In the night comes ghastly sounds, and eerie apparitions are creeping about... English Subtitles and LBX

Z409 Devil's Mistress, The (65) A sexy witchy woman named Athaila, takes revenge on 4 cowboys who coldly (laughing) murdered her husband. Using her occult powers, she will deliver death.... Unusual horror with plenty of cool outdoor shots and scenes of the witchy woman roaming around acting creepy. She kills one guy and pulls out his bloody heart, holds it up as if in sacrifice, and drops the messy thing into a campfire, flanked by a hooded man in black. Satan or Death? A great double feature with 'Manos, the Hands of Fate'! BA

Z533 Donor, The (76) aka: La donneuse aka: Naked and Lustful Jean-Paul and Francoise, unable to have children, decide to go ahead with an anonymous surrogate to solve the problem. But Jean--Paul (Jean-Marie Pallardy) is obsessed with who this girl is. He finds her (Sylvia played by Willeke van Ammelrooy) and starts a torrid affair with her, cheating on his gorgeous wife (Francoise played by Beba Loncar). Seems to me they could have saved a lot of money. In any event, this will not end well for anyone. Or will it? Watch closely and you may spot a young Rutger Hauer in the bar scene. The female leads are yummy in this, take note! In English language too! BA

Z493 Exquisite Cadaver, The (69) aka: Las crueles Publisher Carlos, receives a severed hand in the mail at work. At home, his beautiful wife (Teresa Gimpera) gets a telegram which asks if he would like a forearm. She follows her husband and notices a woman in black is also trailing. The woman is Parker (Capucine), whose lesbian lover Esther (Judy Matheson) was once Carlos' mistress. and she has an axe to grind. I won't tell you the twist here, but it's pretty good. Sort of a Giallo mystery here, with a shock! From the director of 'The Blood Spattered Bride' (it would be his next film) Vicente Aranda. Capucine would jump from her eighth-story apartment Switzerland 1990 in a messy suicide, leaving behind her cats. Judy Matheson was burned at the stake in 'Twins of Evil' and also was in 'Lust for a Vampire', she says however that 'The Exquisite Cadaver' is her favorite of her films.. In Spanish and with English subtitles.

J59 Flower and Snake 5: Rope Magic (87) aka: Hana to hebi: Kyûkyoku nawa chôkyô Ramp up the sleaze on this Pinku! A sleazy guy in debt 'sells' his hot girlfriend and her step-mother to local Yakuza thugs. The gang decides to sexually torture both women in excruciating scenes that make 'I Spit on Your Grave' almost seem tame. Forced incest, vibrator/dildo torture, hot wax 'fun', rope bondage and other tortures I cannot even mention! I noticed a slight crackle on the soundtrack. Twisted sickie with inventive sadistic sexual degradation. LBX and with English subtitles. BA

Z535 Gina (75) French language Canadian 'I Spit on Your...' type with English subtitles! Stripper Gina works in a rural bar in the middle of winter. At the same time, a film crew has arrived, doing a report on the horrifying work conditions at the local textile plant. There are also some out of work snowmobilers about. They harass Gina, and then gang rape her! Gina makes a call to some mobsters who are big guys in muscle cars. The rest of the film is action with violent fights, car chases and plenty of blood! Hell Why not? Nice LBX and with English subtitles.

4194 Hell Safari (82) aka: Invaders of the Lost Gold Maybe they should have stuck with the 'Cannibal Ferox' type plot.... but this is still worth a look, and fits nicely next to Ruggero Deodato's 'Cut and Run' or 'Massacre in Dinosaur Valley'. Opens with a group of WW2 Japanese soldiers being massacred in the jungle by cannibals as they transport gold. Nice decapitations, heads on spears, and even a spike pit. Flash-forward to the future as a group enters the jungles in search of the treasure, led by an American drunk (Stuart Whitman). The movie veers off the path of the usual, and scores points for full frontal from Laura Gemser, and Glynis Barber as Whitman's much younger love interest is stunning. Also with Woody Strode and Edmund Purdom. A nice little jungle thriller. As I write this Stuart Whitman is still alive and aged 90! BA

J36 How Tasty Was My Little Frenchman (71) aka: Como Era Gostoso o Meu Francês This is a pseudo-documentary about a French mercenary who ends up as a prisoner of the Portuguese, and then is the honored guest of a cannibal tribe in the Brazilian jungles. There, he becomes part of the tribe (this plot device used in future cannibal films) and even given a hut and a wife. Then he finds out the end game celebration puts him square on the dinner table (or the dirty stench-encrusted ground as it were) because they plan to devour him in their massive ceremony. Originally banned in Brazil because of the constant nudity amongst the savages. Messy, violent, full of pathetic superstitions and bizarre customs. Here with English subtitles!

J49 Inferno Carnal (77) aka: Hellish Flesh Coffin Joe (aka: Jose Mojica Marins) tackles the familiar grounds of the 'revenge on an evil murdering adulteress’ plot. He plays a Dr. George Medeiros who has his face destroyed by his evil wife, with acid! Then she spends his money or her boy toy while he recovers... But now he is better. Uglier. But better. His wife discovers her lover is cheating in her with nasty skanks. Despondent, she ends up getting hit by a car. Back home to hubby...you won't believe the plot twists still to come! A wonderful example/clone of Euro trash, but from Brazil, so Brazilotrash! Ah, with English subtitles as well!

Z539 Intruder, The (79) aka: A Intrusa Maria Zilda Bethlum sizzles in this movie about the intrusive woman, (that's her!). She comes between two brothers who live in the Brazilian outback (pampas) and share everything. Filmed when she was at her sexiest, she gives a sensuous provocative performance as a raw, almost wild woman in a savage territory. She posed for Brazilian Playboy in 1985. LBX and with English subtitles.

J31 Invitation to Hell (82) Not the Wes Craven film. A girl is lured to a farmhouse in the pastoral outlands to become the unwitting participant in a Satanic ritual. There are several people staying at the house, and a few end up dying gory deaths or becoming possessed by a gnarly demon. On a micro-budget, and running under an hour, this is certainly one of the weirdest and most obscure British Horror films we have seen. Was this a video nasty? Maybe. BA

J47 La llamada del Sexo (77) aka: The Call of Sex A man finds a woman that reminds him of his long lost love: his step-sister with whom he initiated his sex life. But he is married and his wife wants proof of the cheating to get a… George Hilton, Veronica Miriel, Rossy Mendoza and more star. With English subtitles BA

Z517 Mansion, The (17) aka: Le manoir Students (the usual stereotypes associated with an 80's slasher film, but used in unexpected ways) arrive at an old manor house to celebrate the arrival of the New Year. But things get crazy when the story goes off the rails! 'And Then There Were None' type of plot with people getting knocked off one by one in various ways. But there is also an injection of clever humor, turning the usual slice 'n dice protocols of this 'elimination of the cast' type into 'Tucker and Dale...' territory. Tastelessly fun and gruesome! In French language and with English subtitles. BA

Z542 Midnight Ripper (86) aka: You'll Die at Midnight aka: Morirai a mezzanotte Finally a nice LBX English dubbed upgrade! This one borrows heavily for many of the best giallos! When a man's wife is brutally murdered soon after he has argued with her because she was cheating, the cops look to him for answers. She was killed in the shower. But there will be more bloody killings of beautiful women, and the mystery deepens. Excellent stalking scenes of fear, music by Simonetti, direction by Lamberto Bava, red herrings.... this one's got it all. Always welcome in my DVD player. The gory giallo! BA

J30 Night Ripper! (86) In 'Night Ripper', a mad killer slays young glamour models, stabbing them to death and mutilating their bodies like 'Jack the Ripper' would have done. Red herrings and whodunit as the murders continue.... The killings are cheap and bloody. Is the man hating lesbian the killer? The scummy photographer? Nice location for the finale in a mannequin factory adds a creepy atmosphere. Another obscure SOV from the 80's! BA

But the obsession is still there (he spills the beans), and he returns to the island, getting to score with one of the wild beauties. Bea Felder provides a nice soft-core sex sequence. Later the prostitute and a mercenary arrive on the island, looking for the gold. Really obscure Franco here. Quality not as sharp as usual for this excellent and obscure film. F.L. and slightly LBX BA

H978 Mansion of the Living Dead (82) aka: La mansión de los muertos vivientes Lina Romay stars as just one of the waitress's vacationing on the Canary Islands as Jess Franco takes a stab at a Ossorio 'Blind Dead' type of film. .The local monastery has some monks who won't stay dead. Sex and violence and a worthy addition to the series, even though unofficial. Great, atmospheric locations that stand the test of time for the genre and great beach shots, filmed around the same time as 'Macumba Sexual' and the same areas apparently. Monastery of the Horny Dead? Maybe. Also with English subtitles and LBX. BA

She masturbates, and spies on her new employers as they have sex, which drives her crazy with lust. She enjoys it when her new boss uses chains and whips and takes her on the floor, HARD! Obviously a very explicit soft-core for Romay here, and a real showcase for her still in good shape body. Later a decadent orgy ensures. Lina gets her heart broke in the surprise ending. F.L. only, but easy to follow, it is very clear what motivates these characters. Slightly LBX.

Good fight scenes in this one, with Craig resembling an almost prototype version of the still to come James Bond. With the ice cold Anton Diffring and the ill-fated Barbara Bates. Look for an 18 year old Yvonne Roman in an uncredited appearance. Also with Geoffrey Keen (who was so good in 'Taste the Blood of Dracula', and later of course James Bond films). As I write this Michael Craig is still kicking at age 90! Barbara Bates killed herself with carbon monoxide in her mother's garage in Denver, Colorado in 1969, the town of her birth. She was 43. BA

J2 Reach for Glory (62) WWII: London. Thousands of children have been evacuated by their families during the Blitz. This film is about some of these evacuees. They were neither delinquent nor problem children. Just boys who wanted desperately to be part of the war they were too young to fight. Things go off the rails in so many ways.... A nice companion to 'Lord of the Flies'. The ending will tie your stomach in knots. A powerful film about the war and how it affected this group of individuals in a negative way.

J11 Root of all Evil, The (47) A jilted woman named Jeckie (Phyllis Calvert), dumped by her fiancé for being poor (his father did not approve) sets about improving her financial situation, and in the by and by, destroying her ex-boyfriend and his uppity family by any means possible.

Z398 What a Whopper (61) To get money quick to avoid an eviction, a trip to Loch Ness is in order, to fake a 'Nessie' sighting. Hilarious and politically incorrect nonsense, jabbing great fun out of drinking and driving and sexual harassment. At one point,. genuine BBC journalist at the time Fyffe Robertson, tries to film a report on the monster. The 'Nessie' prop is hysterical. But when the real 'Nessie' shows up, it's even funnier.

This is a Hammer Production. Anthony Hinds produced, and Jimmy Sangster was assistant director.



2766 Beasts (83) A killer grizzly bear is on the loose in the Canadian Rockies. In the opening he attacks and kills a few hunters camping in the snow. Points go to the actors that wrestle the huge bear. Sorry, you wouldn't see me doing that! The lead guy (Thomas Babson) looks like a cross between Stephen King and Christopher Reeves Clark Kent, glasses and all. Kathy Christopher (from 'Snowbeast') snowbound again, packing a .44 magnum, holds up well, even while being leered at and groped by a couple of ex-cons, who are after the bounty offered for the grizzly's hide. The bear pretty much saves her from a sexual assault. Filmed outdoors and snowbound, and with a real, huge Grizzly, this is the oddest in the limited pantheon of killer bears flicks, and definitely worth a look. Spectacular! BA

Z407 Black Cat Mansion (58) aka: Bôrei kaibyô yashiki The misdeeds of a former generation come back on their descendants. In this case, a wronged servant returns to haunt the descendants of her master in the same mansion where she suffered. The current situation is filmed in black and white, the past is filmed in color.

Z418 Casting the Runes (79) Yes, another adaptation of the eerie tale, told so well in the Dana Andrews starring film 'Curse of the Demon. I simply cannot get enough of the tale of a man who incurs a magician's wrath after mocking him. Change the circumstances from version to version but the 'slight' is still the same. Don't piss off a master of the black arts. When the demon starts stalking your ass, you'll get religion real quick. This version is a welcome addition.

H990 Donner Pass: The Road to Survival (78) aka: El paso Donner Settlers facing insurmountable odds struggle to reach California in 1846. Reaching the High Sierras, they get stranded in the snow in the middle of the pass. Death from freezing/starvation is inevitable. But only the strong survive.

Pete would be in 'Star Wars' the following year, but also a better film than 'Star Wars' called 'Shock Waves' the same year.

J25 Haunting Harmony (93) Strange little supernatural film out of Canada, with English participation. A young choir boy runs across a ghost in the cathedral where he attends. Nice locations filmed in England.

H982 Return to Boggy Creek (77) aka: Regreso a Boggy Creek Three children follow Bigfoot hunters into the Boggy Creek. Meanwhile, the weather predicts a hurricane.

Z223 Strange Encounter (58) aka: Estranho Encontro A man, driving at night, finds a distraught woman on the side of the road and takes her to his large estate to collect her senses.

Three women use witchcraft to help advance their husbands careers. Lana Turner's last actual movie. Also stars Terri Garr and Kathryn Leigh Scott of 'Dark Shadows' fame. Look for Angus Scrimm in a bit part and special monster effects 'Lucifer Demon Monster' by the late great David Allen.



P158 1941 Hong Kong on Fire (94) aka: Xiang Gang lun xian Here we see the Japanese invasion of Hong Kong. The film is blatant in depicting the atrocities committed savagely against the Chinese. In fact, almost the full focus of the film is on the brutalization (including rape) of the Chinese. Here's something you rarely see, the Japanese being called out by Hong Kong for the war crimes of the past. Even though this is dark and vicious, they manage to insert some awkward comic relief into the film. LBX and with English subtitles BA

T747/K174 Ambush Murders, The (82) Ray, an African American political activist (Dorian Harewood) is accused of murdering two policemen, both white. Now his white lawyer is here to defend him (James Brolin), but can he be trusted from Ray's point of view? Ray is innocent after all... or is he? Seeing as how this ambush and kill cops thing is so current, it's really nothing new, but no less reprehensible. To kill those who would save or protect your family if they were called to do so is inexcusable. Also with Amy Madigan and Alfre Woodard, both in one of their first movies!

3368 Amin: The Rise and Fall (81) aka: Triunfo y caída de Idi Amin The ultimate chronicle of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin (played here with reckless abandon by Joseph Olita) detailing his evil rule from 1971 to his overthrow in 1979. Filmed in Kenya. Disturbing and unpleasant viewing, but the story must be remembered. Idi Amin was responsible for the murder of over 350,000 people, maybe more, some say 500,000!. Olita would play Amin again in 1991, making Amin his first and last role. Idi Amin was given full political asylum in Saudi Arabia, escaping with millions of dollars he stole from those he killed. He lived rich and powerful until his death in 2003 at age 80. I guess if you are a monster and a murderer but have millions, Saudi Arabia takes you in… BA

Z510 Big Bluff, The (57) aka: Le grand bluff Conman Eddie Morgan (Eddie Constantine) is promoting an oil well. A phony oil well to be precise. But wait! The oil well turns out to be the real deal!

LBX and with English subtitles.

Z455 Breathing Fire (91) aka: Bloodbrother - The Fighter, the Winner Viet Nam veteran Michael gets caught up in a life of crime, dragging his martial arts sons into the life. Jerry Trimble, the King of the Kick boxers, gets his ass kicked by the kid from 'The Goonies' (Jonathan Ke Quan)! Bolo Yeung is 'Thunder'! Everybody makes fun of this one. I loved it.

Dramatization of a young Bruce Lee learning his craft as he goes from Hong Kong to studying at the University of Washington in Seattle, to California, and the beginnings of his Hollywood career.

Z490 Canicule (84) aka: Dog Day aka: Día de perros A fugitive with a load of dough (Lee Marvin as Jimmy Cobb) is tracked by dozens of police in the French countryside. and is taken in by a dysfunctional farm family with some disturbing ideas of their own. The father is a violent and brutal pervert, his ten year old son, possibly on the same path. The father's sister is a nymphomaniac. There are wonderfully tasteless moments as well. The clubbing of a few Swedish and topless blondes, the suicide of the grandmother, the spending spree of the ten year old kid in a cathouse.... Sordid, Dirty and Violent.
