    THE AMITYVILLE HAUNTING (2011)

    …in which found footage reveals the fate of the latest bunch of idiots who just couldn’t say ‘no’ to a real-estate bargain…

    This offering from The Asylum was sold as a documentary, cut together from video images found after the tragedy, which is why it has no credits.

    Sure…that’s why…

      The devil made them do it!

      HunkOne of the final efforts by Crown International Pictures, Hunk takes the tale of Faust and tries to make it a comedy, though the filmmakers forgot to add the laughs.

        Ghost of Ghosts Past

        WE-ARE-STILL-HERE_DagmarWE ARE STILL HERE

        A film that could have ended up nothing more than a Fulci pastiche rises above the label of “love letter to” and “throwback to” and succeeds on its own merits, delivering one of the best horror films we’ve had in a long time. Seances, creepy ghosts, possession, menacing locals, Barbara Crampton, gore, a house with a sinister past make for classic, old school horror scares.

          Spies, Lies, and Thighs

          uncle5Teleport City is making some changes, but we’re still posting in one of our (revived) offshoots. And the theme so far has been espionage.

          THE MAN FROM UNCLE

          Guy Ritchie attempts to do for The Man from UNCLE what he did for (or to, depending on your opinion) Sherlock Holmes, and ended up with one of the biggest flops of 2015. But at least it’s a really fun, stylish flop.

          PEKING OPERA BLUES

          One of the great films of the Hong Kong New Wave, Tsui Hark’s Chinese Revolution era adventure is notable for focusing not on the war or heroic men, but on the friendship that grows between three women who find themselves involved in a tangled web of espionage.

          ASIA-POL

          The notion of the Hong Kong’s Shaw Brothers teaming up with Japanese studio Nikkatsu to make a colorful spy adventure that pits Jô “The Cheeks” Shishido against Jimmy “The One-Armed Swordsman” Wang Yu, seems fantastic. It’s disappointing that it all turned out so…disappointing.

          OPERATION LIPSTICK

          One of the Shaw Brothers most visually talented directors tries his hand at the spy genre in this colorful, absurd, occasionally slapstick tale of a family of thieves who get mixed up in international intrigue after lifting a wallet.

            Home is where the hurt is

            There are certain places in the world where the rules just don’t apply—where tragedies have occurred, and will occur again—where the dead refuse to stay buried—and where the living venture at their peril.

            Such a place can be in the city, or in the country; on land, or at sea; in the middle of a crowd, or the middle of the woods. It might be a town—or a house—or a single room. It might look terrifying—or worse, it might look like home…

            Welcome to The Bad Place…

              Testing, testing

              As I indicated in the New Year’s post, this year my plan is to roll my website over from a software-based set-up to a blog…and I think we’re open for beta-testing, if possibly not quite business.

              A major aim for this project is simplicity, so you won’t find any bells or whistles (not that you ever did). In this respect I also want to keep the layout pretty clean and straightforward, so while there will inevitably be tweaking, I want things more or less as they currently are. On the other hand I am more than willing to listen to suggestions on fonts etc., or anything for better readability.

              I have started simply by shifting Alligator over to the blog as a test case: I would appreciate it very much if people could drop in, take a look, let me know how things appear on your systems, and draw my attention to any mistakes or glitches.

              Welcome to the third iteration of And You Call Yourself A Scientist!

                A thrilling thriller!

                The Disappearance Of Alice CreedGrabbing the viewer right from the start and keeping a firm grip right to the end credits, The Disappearance Of Alice Creed is a superb suspense drama.

                    Erotic Escapades

                    Let’s kick off the year properly, with the first part of a multi-part epic that involves abundant nudity, Robert Wise, sexual liberation, Richard Attenborough, jet-set swingers, underground erotica, Steve McQueen, international travel, airplane sex, Erika Blanc, Sylvia Kristel, the real life Emmanuelle, and Oliver Reed’s…well, just read on. NSFW, unless you work somewhere sexy.

                    The Erotic Escapades of Emmanuelle, Part 1: Idleness is an Art Form

                    This being the era that it was, there was also very little parental oversight of our viewing endeavors, which meant among other things that after 11pm or so, we were left to our own devices with those wondrous television signals ours for the taking. Most of the time, we did what any kids our age would do: scanned the airwaves for stuff like Excalibur or Conan the Barbarian, or something with ninjas, or anything with a ratings screen that contained four-for-four sure thing warning of “Language, Violence, Nudity, Strong Sexual Situations”. We were both of us more dedicated film fans at that age than most of our peers, which meant that even when it wasn’t just barbarians and boobs and space aliens, we’d stay up until dawn watching whatever came on. This led to us being the only kids in third grade who knew a lot about Blood for Dracula and David and Lisa. And when we were sure Rob’s parents were asleep and his older sister wasn’t spying on us, we’d hazard a peek at the verboten adult channels. That was when I first encountered Sylvia Kristel.
