To my shame I've never seen Hardcore, but not for lack of trying. It always sounded like a legitimately interesting movie and I could never find it.

Finding the VHS for cheap is still one of my best video scores. I'd wanted to see it for a long time and wasn't disappointed at all; if anything, Hardcore actually exceeded my expectations. Forgot that Paul Schrader was involved until his name flashed onscreen and then realized I was in for something really good and dark. Hardcore and Cruising would be one helluva dirty double feature.



I also found a 2-disc edition of The Wanderers that has a "preview cut" adding about six minutes of extra footage. Although it doesn't add much, it's still cool to see. I've had the VHS for over 20 years and went for a DVD upgrade. One of my favorites; I like how it is shot in a way that is almost dreamlike.

Wow, I didn't know they'd re-released Hardcore on Blu-Ray, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. How does the transfer look?

It looks pretty impressive all things considered, though I wish it had newer special features and whatnot. You can get it here

That's about it. Lots of red herrings, extravagant murder sequences, and cops as well. Most of them I've seen have a bit of a slow pace but are still engaging.

I saw this yesterday and it is as ridiculous as you would expect. Ernest Borgnine's performance keeps this watchable; it would be quite dull without his presence. Cast includes Eddie Albert from Green Acres, Tom Skerritt, Ida Lupino, and fucking William Shatner being a douchebag. Didn't notice John Travolta in his film debut. Anton LaVey was the technical advisor and has a small role too. I'm probably totally wrong here, but I feel like Lucio Fulci probably saw this and liked the gut-churning special effects enough to have similar goings-on in The Beyond.

Found the full movie on YouTube, making me think my friend got ripped off buying it on Blu-Ray:

Shatner's wicker cowboy hat is one for the ages. If you want some prime Shatner starring exploitation (Shatsploitation?) then you should see "Impulse." It's a movie where he plays a serial killer who targets women, wears awful 70's fashion and delivers one of the most over the top performances of his career.

Impulse is awesome.

I love Incubus the most, though. That's an ultimate timepiece. I guess Shatner hates being asked about it or speaking Esperanto, and it makes me like it more.

Shatner's presence in The Devil's Rain reminded me that it's been a long time since I last saw Kingdom of the Spiders and that should be rectified soon.

Kingdom of the Spiders is one of those I've accidentally got at least three copies of.

Woody Strode deserved a way better career than he got. If he'd just been born ten years later, he'd have been an icon.

"Kingdom of the Spiders" is actually a fun little "nature run amok" film, and I especially like that they had the balls to go for a downbeat ending.

Strait-Jacket is low-budget drive-in fare from 1964. Saw it on TV one afternoon over 30 years ago and it freaked me out. I downloaded and watched it for the first time since then a while back and found it thoroughly enjoyable. Directed by William Castle of the original House on Haunted Hill and 13 Ghosts. Written by Psycho's Robert Bloch. Joan Crawford masticates the scenery and other cast members include Leif Erickson, George Kennedy, and a young Lee Majors.

I now own Strait-Jacket on Blu-Ray as part of a "Psycho Biddy Double Feature" with Berserk. Haven't seen Berserk yet, but it sounds promising...

Quote
Joan Crawford stars as Monica Rivers, the owner of a traveling circus plagued by a series of mysterious deaths. When a high-wire performer becomes the first victim, he is replaced by an even more daring aerialist who begins a romance with Monica. Their relationship draws envy from her business manager who is the brutal killer's next victim. As the police begin to investigate, bigger audiences flock to the show. The mystery swirls as a cast of suspects and movies rage with jealousy and revenge.

Been a minute, but from what I recall the movies with Christopher Lee are actually pretty good. Oasis Of The Zombies is both the best and worst zombie Nazi movie there is (at least I think it was Oasis, it might've been Zombie Lake, but you get what's advertised). Looking now, Vampyros Lesbos was exactly what you'd expect but I remember the soundtrack being great. The Awful Doctor Orloff is alright from what I remember, although I think there were a few Orloffs. The rest I haven't seen in so long they blur together in just a mound of titties.

I watched "Hard Ticket to Hawaii" last Thursday and I've been kicking myself for not seeing it sooner. Such a glorious piece of cinematic garbage.

Outside of a few of his movies, I find most of what Jess Franco did to be dull. I remember watching "Erotic Rites of Frankenstein" after seeing people praise it and feeling bored out of my mind, and I'm usually all for that kind of Euro Cult stuff.

Andy Sidaris was the extra pervy version of Lloyd Kaufman without any of the "artist" pretext. Definitely give Malibu Express a try if you haven't already.

Bonus points: the final feature directed by Andy Sidaris was 1998's L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies: Return to Savage Beach, notable for Buff Bagwell having a role in it.

I've heard that Franco's films were an acquired taste at best, but never checked any of them out because he's made a billion of them and they were always really expensive. They still are; the Blu-Rays go for $30-35 in stores around here. Jack the Ripper was okay, but my reading up on it suggests that he has better films out there. I may start with Vampyros Lesbos or The Awful Dr. Orloff.

Unrelated and possibly more suitable for a different thread, but I have Mad Dog Killer (aka Beast with a Gun, aka Ferocious, etc.) coming in the mail this week. This is one of the movies Bridget Fonda is watching in her apartment in Jackie Brown; you might remember the clip of Helmut Berger smacking a woman in the face with a newspaper. I figured Tarantino was cool enough to include A Better Tomorrow in True Romance, so he's probably trying to do us a solid by turning nerds on to something even more obscure.



Berger is Nanni Vitali, a sadistic murderer who breaks out of prison and goes on a crime spree. He catches up with the guy who fingered him for jail and kills him in a way that I wouldn't wish upon anyone. Vitali even kidnaps the guy's girlfriend, but there is one tough cop on his trail who is singularly focused on bringing this no-good son of a bitch back to justice.

My limited reading about the film has taught me a little bit about director Sergio Grieco and the poliziottesco genre of '70s Italian action movies. Mad Dog Killer was Grieco's last film after a number of adventure movies and James Bond-style spy flicks. Poliziottesco fans don't seem to rate Mad Dog Killer nearly as high as they do other movies like Execution Squad, but obviously I'm no one to debate such a point. All I know is that I thought it was a good movie and equally watchable in either Italian or dubbed-in English. See it for yourself on Prime.

I think Hollywood's insistence on remaking everything has affected me on a deeper level than I realized, because I can't shake the idea that someone could do an incredible Mad Dog Killer remake with an ice-cold Rutger Hauer type in the Helmut Berger role.

My bad movie party buddies and I finally watched "Salo". It is regarded as perhaps the most disturbing movie of all time due to the content. People like Ebert refused to watch it. Countries edited the hell out of it or banned it outright.

Brief synopsis: A group of teenagers were taken by a group of rich sadist who degrade them for sexual gratification.

Yet....in a world of the internet, where 2 Girls one cup, tentacle porn and sites like EFUK exist, Salo could just not live up to its reputation. Reading that the second act was all about "shit" had me horrified at first as I was picturing something perhaps with actual scat.  But the poo is fairly obviously fake, and even though we watch everyone eat it and the teens forced to bathe in it, it really made us giggle more than be repulsed.
The last 10 mins were the best as they killed all the surviving kids in one final violent orgy. 

------
2 weeks earlier we watched Caligula 2, and a woman actually masturbated a horse on screen, so Salo was a letdown from even our most recent viewings.

I actually have "Hard Ticket" and "Malibu Express" (they recently came out on Blu) so I plan on watching the latter as soon as possible. Not tonight though, as that goes to this:

Find either Sweet Movie or Pasolini's Canterbury Tales. The former is virtually unexplainable even if I was I going to (beyond John Vernon being Trump) and the latter has a giant ass that shoots out people.

You also reminded me that I watched The Beast on Netflix a couple years back which had a woman giving a monster a graphic footjob. Thanks.

It's...fine. Not as fun as I thought it would be (I too remember seeing a VHS of it) but it's got a really fun performance from David Gale.

Picked up a good double feature DVD of these classic '70s car chase flicks...



I love Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry; Peter Fonda and Susan George have a funny chemistry that is quite entertaining. Vic Morrow is a gem as the maniac cop trying to take them down any way he can.



Hadn't seen Race with the Devil before. I had it queued on my old Netflix account in the pre-streaming days, but it was never available. Warren Oates, car chases, and Satanic cults are all things that make movies better to me, so there is nothing not to like as far as I am concerned. Liked seeing Loretta Swit in the cast too.

There's also this one...



Only found out about Vanishing Point recently and I'm surprised to not have heard of it sooner. I had read that it was essentially a hour and forty minute-long car chase and I was NOT disappointed by any means. Vanishing Point was fuckin' awesome, just a fun visceral viewing experience.

I guess I was on a car chase kick when I went shopping last week, but I also have Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, Burial Ground, Divine Trash, El Mariachi, M (1931), Poltergeist, Willard (1971), and a couple blaxploitation sets to work my way through.

Race With The Devil is fucking great. Warren Oates charging the school bus is a favorite part.

Track down Road Games if you haven't. Stacy Keach and Jamie Lee Curtis in an Australian trucker version of pretty much Rear Window.

Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia was my first Pekinpah. And M is one of the greatest and more twisted movies of all time.

Mentioned this in the horror thread yesterday but William Friedkin's "Cruising" is coming to Blu Ray from Arrow this August.

Also coming to Blu (this time from Shout Factory) this August is Gary ("Dead and Buried", "Raw Meat") Sherman's Vice Squad

"Robowar" is a late 80s Italian ripoff of "Predator. It's so shameless in this that it actually rips off the "stick around" gag from that movie. What I'm saying is that I love it, and I'm convinced everything "Bruno Mattei and Claudio Fragasso made together is mandatory viewing.

I cant believe it took me decades to finally watch this, but went to a 35mm presentation of Killer Klowns from Outer Space over the weekend at a small neighborhood theater in Minneapolis. God damn this was well worth the admission. There is something great about watching an old reel of a cult film like this, and the crowd was all in on the laughs at the terrible acting and wonky kills across the board.

Apparently there might be a sequel on the horizon as Sci-Fi bought the rights to this franchise and the Critters franchise so we will see how they do it, but all of the original filmmakers from KK are apparently on board.

Bold statement: Cannibal Holocaust, or indeed any of the filmed on location cannibal films, are going to be some of the most important of all time due to how much damage has happened in the Amazon. Sleazy and fucked up as they may be, Cannibal Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox and the rest are pretty much now important looks at an area that will never be the same.

Finally saw Orca and was not at all disappointed. Glad I didn't see it when I was a kid because I liked Jaws way too much to accept Orca as hokey, stupid fun. That opening shot of two killer whales in love...wow. I can't begin to tell you how hard I laughed at the orca celebrating every time he caused property destruction. Miscarriage scene was legit gross. SPLAT! goes the dead baby orca...yup, they took it there. Loved the scene where Richard Harris is standing on the dock and Orca pops up in the water to give him the side-eye like he's hard on the boulevard. Serious laughs. What a glorious piece of trash.
