Is there anything more annoying than being quite sure you own a film, then finding out at the critical moment that you don’t?

Mind you, it speaks volumes that this was the one I didn’t buy…

And with that done, I think I’ll go and have a quiet psychotic break…

    Dutch Girls and Teddy Girls

    THE EROTIC ESCAPADES OF EMMANUELLE, PT. 2

    mstv copyIn this installment of what looks like it’ll be, well, it’s gonna be a lot of installments…anyway, we look at Sylvia Kristel’s early life, her modeling career, entry into film by way of the Eurocrime thriller BECAUSE OF THE CATS, and the early photography career of Ken Russell, whose 1969 film Women in Love was one of the most important films in breaking down sexual taboos in mainstream cinema.

      A Wild-er drama

      Quackser FortuneThe title of the movie Quackser Fortune Has A Cousin In The Bronx fortunately does not overshadow the great amount of charm and humanity in the movie itself.

        Czech Madness and Argentine Giallo

        Teleport City continues its unannounced transfer to Jet Set Cinema with one of the best and one of the worst

        MARKETA LAZAROVAml11

        Marketa Lazarová – the tale of warring clans in the 12th century – has been heralded as perhaps the greatest Czech film of all time. Stark landscapes, inventive cinematography, and a fractured, experimental narrative certainly make for an unforgettable experience.

        SONNO PROFONDOsp1

        A shot on digital video POV take on giallo from Argentina that makes too many mistakes to be regarded as anything other than “better luck next time” despite the promising high concept of a giallo style killer being stalked by another giallo style killer.

            Death ShipWhile George Kennedy is one of the stars, Death Ship isn’t a disaster movie. At least with the typical use of the term.

                …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…

                    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.
