Dedicated to the Wildest of Horror and Exploitation

When Lars von Trier’s new film, The House That Jack Built, takes its inevitable turn into the brickbat, how-Hitler-would-flirt-in-fourth-grade provocation/rumination on the state of the artist, à la himself, I suddenly wondered: who the hell is this film for?

Then von T...

My first encounter with Turkey Shoot still burns so warmly as to leave a small hole in my heart, not unlike the remembrance of one’s first true love.

Film Geeks SD hosted a 15-hour horror movie marathon at the Comic Con Museum Theater this past September, a seven movie...

The ripping off of American films by foreign producers is a long and storied tradition. From Lady Terminator (Indonesia) to Turkish Star Wars (uh, Turkey) to Time of the Apes (Japan) to The Pod People (France/Spain) to Zombi 2 (Italy), the cashing in on American blockb...

Part 1 of 3 of Bonkers Ass Bigfoot Week

Enter: Michael Findlay.

As the spaghetti western acquiesced to the law of diminishing returns in the early 70’s, Italian filmmakers began looking elsewhere for inspiration. The American new wave was churning out popular cop and crime films, such as The French Connection, Dirty Harry, and The...

I’m just going to put this out there: I’ve been severely depressed lately. I believe the proper psychiatric jargon is “going through a funk.” There’s no reason to get into it so much, only suffice to say, there has been a lot of meeting the Postmates driver outside my...

Back when I reviewed Cruel Jaws, I lamented that for a site that specializes in bonkers cinema, it took six articles to get to an Italian film. Now, eleven articles in, this is our second Bruno Mattei offering.

A hoorah for the progress of human intellectualism!
