I am again asking you to consider watching a Jess Franco film. Honestly, this is one of his more interesting ones.
A sleazy little slasher featuring a OTT central performance and some fab views of a rundown Hollywood.
Vicious violence in this exploitation film that was heavily influcenced by Witchfinder General and stars Udo Kier.
Far better known as The Mad Doctor Of Blood Island. This Filipino horror from 1969 features lots of young women and a man/plant monster causing mayhem
Leslie Nielsen and Jamie Lee Curtis star in this slasher that features a fairly amateur killer, a severed head, and plenty of disco dancing.
David Cronenberg’s Scanners was his breakthrough movie into Hollywood and provided an iconic scene.
The multi-award winning, hard-hitting Australian drama that ended up being seized by overly enthusastic police officers in England.
Ruggero Deodato’s Last Cannibal World, also known as Ultimo mondo cannibale and Jungle Holocaust, is an offensive, heady jungle action movie that shows a director toying with ideas he will later return to in his infamous Cannibal Holocaust
Fairly arty, quite odd, pretty sleazy. The Headless Eyes, from 1971, is a bit of an aquired taste, but this is a wonderfully grubby serial killer flick, shot in New York.
William Fruet’s exploitation film is considerably better than you’d expect, considering it was trashed on its release, lashed as the other film with touring prints of Last House On The Left, and fell into relative obscurity. It’s all due to some strong character work and great acting.
