Flopson, but I cannot in good conscience overlook her brown eyes. It is a deal breaker, and her lack of Oscars, and her lack of singing and acting abilities, and quite frankly, her filmography, is not making things better for her.

you probably have hazel eyes, not brown. There's a difference, even though one could argue hazel is a shade of brown. When it comes to eye classification, brown eyes means dark brown with no obvious depth to the iris, like the ones in Flopson or the average nigger.

Years later, Rick reunites with Cindy, his ex-girlfriend, who reveals that she's being pursued by a ruthless satanic cult that has started practicing human sacrifices and, even worse, is being operated by none other than Normad! When Huck is set up again by Normad, who is now a judge, Rick takes it upon himself to defeat the encroaching evil.

Yes, there are some very interesting similarities there, and I think even the Joseph Merrick/Elephant Man one might be inspired partially by Bacon's 1969 self-portrait. At least it seems more inspired by the self-portrait than the actual look of Merrick.
Here is the aforementioned essay: https://archive.ph/B0udf

Don't you mean "exclave"?
Because La chiesa
was so damn good I decided to continue with Michele Soavi's filmography. Already got a copy of his 1991 film La Setta
, also produced by Argento. In addition to the similarities to Gordon's 2001 adaptation Dagon
, there might very well be some more ferences to the work of M. R. James judging by the trailer: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=DypCBF5hE4Q
Still no luck tracking down a copy of that other film, or Fulci's Demonia
, but I should have White Fire
too before long. Might get around to watch La Setta
tonight unless you want to add that to the Film Club as well.
Go ahead, my schedule is looking kind of cluttered so I'd delay you too much. I can't even guesstimate when I could possibly watch it.
Just getting round to it now; holy smokes, what an opening! Beautiful and tense as fuck. Got major Mandy
vibes from it, and the actor who plays Damon is killing it, just the way he looks and the look in his eyes. He is a cross between Charles Manson and Jeremiah Sands from Mandy
if the latter was a real threat and an outright Luciferian rather than a whimpy Gnostic. I really hope he is a major character in this film. The moment he shows up in the opening it kicked into high gear; 1970s hippies, bikers, bonfires, Luciferians, cult leaders, and human sacrifice!
Compare the shot in the trailer and the image on the Italian VHS cover to this illustration of M. R. James' 1904 story 'Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad'
If you do want to check it out, here is the copy I got: The.Sect.1991.1080p.BluRay.x264BiPOLAR

Nic, La Setta
was absolutely insane, and it turned out to be a full-on Lovecraftian too. Some beautiful and dreamy (nightmarish?) visuals and ideas, but I thought it lacked the focus of La chiesa
, and some of the symbolism was simply too weird for me.
And the Luciferian/Satanists suddenly namedropped a Lovecraftian eldritch horror during their ghastly ceremony.
Soavi is a very skilled director, and he comes up with some stunning scenes in this too, but he needs someone to tardwrangle him somewhat I think. Sadly the film does not live up to the opening prologue. There is another strong similarity to 30 monedas
after that in a secondary prologue, and a lot of beautiful visuals thru the film, but it is all over the place.
Came across an article on the Norse influence on HPL in Lovecraft Studies #8, spring 1984 (Cthulhu's Scald: Lovecraft and the Nordic Tradition
by Jason C. Eckhardt) a while back, and the mention of the Lovecraftian eldritch abomination in this film made me realise there is a very strong Norse inluence on Shub-Niggurath; it is eerily similar to the dreadful Old One mentioned in stanza 40 of Vǫluspá
in the Poetic Edda. It is simply too similar to be coincidence, I think, and HPL was familiar with the Eddas, as evidenced by his essay Supernatural Horror in Literature
:<The Scandinavian Eddas and Sagas thunder with cosmic horror, and shake with the stark fear of Ymir and his shapeless spawnhttps://archive.ph/tV3C4#selection-281.594-281.716
I might expand on this and the other similarities in a long, rambling thread if I ever get around to it. I have considered making a HPL thread over on /lit/ since October. Got a ton of notes and interpretations of his stories I could add there as well.
Also, I just found out about Brutal Fury
from 1993. There is no trailer for it that I could find, but here are some highlights from it: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=uJF8hpLOBbc
The whole film is also on YT, which is nice, since there are no torrents of it at all: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=aNA6lyB2lJ4
Might be fun, in a Killer Workout
Turns out Brutal Fury
is actually from 1989 and the original title is apparently Death's Fury
, and it is also known as Missy
. Guess the title was changed to Brutal Fury
when AIP released it on VHS in 1993.http://www.imcdb.org/movie_106492-Brutal-Fury.html<Shy young high school girl joins a secretive vigilante group of female high school students called "The Sisterhood."
Have you been to the club lately?
Also I presume Argento must have done quite a bit of tardwrangling in La Chiesa
, so much it feels like he could have directed it and one wouldn't notice a difference.
On the audio commentary track to La chiesa
Barbara Cupisti said Argento didn't really hang around the set, so I assume Soavi had pretty much free reign during shooting; maybe Argento let him have more input on the writing on La Setta
after seeing how La chiesa
You still have the idea of hidden architectural features hiding some nefarious horror in 'La Setta' as well, but it feels a lot less connected than the story of La chiesa
, and I feel like scenes were included because of the visuals, not because it does anything to tell the story.
The opening, and part of the ending, is great - terrific even - so it is a shame the rest of the film is rather bland storywise. The two leads are simply going through the motions, and are just reacting to things happening. It fails to maintain the sense of a coherent mystery the leads could investigate, and at one point it decides to become a slasher, then it is back to the Satanic/Lovecraftian cult. But the symbolism is all over the place - especially the idea of the flesh-eating bug featured in the trailer. In a throwaway line a side-character claims it has some strong religious significance/symbolism, but it is never again mentioned, and none of the main characters look into this or the cult.
Here is part of the opening on YT (in Italian): https://yewtu.be/watch?v=ABrCWYXTpm4
The scenes with the cult members are very good, and I would have loved to see it play a bigger part - make the characters feel like there is a threat there, and a mystery religion or group with sinister goals in mind. I did not really care for La Terza madre
, but at least that had the characters involved in investigating the witch cult, rather than simply being hapless and clueless, wondering around the same house for the majority of the film.
Also, Pino Donaggio, who scored Don't Look Now
for Nicolas Roeg did the score for La Setta
Still no luck finding BDD
, but I did get a copy of Yakuza Princess
. Visually the trailer reminds me a little of American Night
, and the Japanese æsthetic is very pleasing to the eye.
I did find a DVD rip of BDD
on RuTracker, but that is dead as well.

And you need to make an appearance there lol.
It has its moments, and the visuals/æsthetic is on point throughout most of the film, but overall it felt very underdeveloped and hollow.
The rural Yakuza hideout felt very off to me - I would have expected a group of Japanese Yakuza members to live in a traditional Japanese style home - shoji walls, typical Japanese furniture, a traditional Zen garden outside with a koi pond and bonsai trees and sakura trees, and maybe even a Shinto temple… instead they live in a rundown Western-style rural farm home - kitsch art on the walls, furniture, and everything looking rather rundown.
It would have been nice to have this very traditional Japanese-style house to contrast the very modern, neon-lit big city and its garish, attention-demanding neon signs and sounds.
It was also very off-putting to have so much of the dialogue in English - Japanese Yakuza members straight off the plane speaking English.
There is also a weird lack and disproportionate approach of nudity and violence; Shirō (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) walks around the hospital naked, but there is hardly any other nudity to speak of. I think we catch a very brief glimpse of a stripper's breasts in one scene, but that is all. You have some blood splatters and a decapitation, but I would have liked to see the sword fights be a lot more brutal and bloody.
The film is based on the graphic novel Samurai Shirō
by Danilo Beyruth, and I can only assume they must have left out a lot of the character development in the transition from graphic novel to film.
It feels like the film is torn between two half-finished characters, Akemi & Shirō, leaving both of them underdeveloped as a result. Akemi is of course developed the most, but could have been given a lot more to work with. Shirō feels very tacked on in this film, though he appears to have a much larger role in the graphic novel, since it is named Samurai Shirō
after him - I suppose this translates as 'White Samurai'? His character should have been heavily reworked or just removed - he has very little impact on the story after the events prior to the film, and the whole amnesiac badass trope did not work IMHO.
I was pleasantly surprised that this film did not attempt to shoehorn in a romance, especially an interracial romance between the two leads Akemi & Shirō. More developed and brutal action scenes, and less focus on Shirō would have helped streamline the story without resort to the tired cliché of the amnesiac hero/protagonist. And going for a more traditional look for the Yakuza hideout. These changes would have removed some of the most tiresome "faults".
Wow, I hadn't noticed all those parallels with Point Dume. What article are you talking about?Kiss Me, Deadly
is indeed a classic, but the commentary probably isn't too far off. It was intended to put an end to noir by mocking and exaggerating its traits, but it was done masterfully. Mike Hammer is portrayed as a completely immoral guy, pimping his own secretary/lover to married men to blackmail them (as well as him going for other men's wives to
have her blackmail them too). The heavy breathing at the start is supposed to shock as well, bringing a sexual tone to the dialogue. Yet despite the intent, it's arguably one of the best films noir ever made. It did however catalyze the end of the era, with very few old school films noir being made after it.
>>83876>What article are you talking about?<This failing on the part of Hollywood to understand the essence of Lovecraft (regardless of whether or not they get the plot details correct) is is nowhere more evident than in HBO's CAST A DEADLY SPELL (1991). This second misfired attempt at fusing the Mythos with the private eye genre is not an actual adaptation but an original story featuring a gumshoe named H. P. Lovecraft.<By combining Lovecraftian elements with traditional magic, Joseph Dougherty's script diminishes the Mythos (the Great Old Ones) are invoked, but they come across just like traditional demons). Also, if Fred Ward's private detective is already aware of the supernatural (as is everybody else in this alternate version of 1948 Los Angeles), then there can be no shattering revelation of its existence. What was needed here was a KISS ME, DEADLY-type plot, with the shamus following a thread of clues that "gradually unravels his whole existence into chaos and nightmare" (to quote David Pirie in A Heritage of Horror). Instead we get traditional moralizing about not being on the take, which in this context means not using black magic.Cthul-who?
by Randy Palmer & Steve Biodrowski in Imagi-Movies, Volume 1 Number 3, Spring 1994: https://archive.org/details/ImagiMoviesVol1No3Spring1994/page/n49/mode/2up
The director was a notorious leftist, but the anti-McCarthyism, &c. the two individuals mention on the audio commentary track does not hold up IMHO, and because of the director' leftist leanings I feel they read a lot into the film and the story that is not there.
Hammer's use of violence did not seem unreasonable to me. They only part where he behaved like an asshole was to the would-be opera singer. After the death of his friend Nick, the mechanic, he is done playing around, and when Velda is kidnapped he doesn't waste anytime with the greedy guy at the morgue.
People are even claiming Hammer is a repressed homosexual - because he grieves and gets drunk after Nick is killed! These "critics" cannot comprehend male bonding at all. Hammer & Nick love fast cars, and he feels genuinely bad when Nick ends up dead because he has been looking into the case.
Even the "diverse" parts of the film some critics hail would never pass in today's climate - Nick & the other guy working at the garage are very stereotypical Greeks, the Italian opera singer with his pasta, and the blacks being into boxing… if a white male director pulled that today he would be accused of reducing people to caricature & stereotype.
The supposed feminist take collapses when Lily/Gabrielle turns out to be a double-crossing bitch who kills Dr. Soberin & tries to kill Hammer who has only ever helped her, and his killed because of her own greed. Interestingly enough, they mention on the audio commentary track that director Aldrich & Gaby Rogers who plays Lily/Gabrielle decided that her character was a lesbian and in a relationship with her roommate Christina. That is why she cut her hair short, since that was the stereotype/code for lesbian at that time.
>Mike Hammer is portrayed as a completely immoral guy, pimping his own secretary/lover to married men to blackmail them (as well as him going for other men's wives to
have her blackmail them too).
I wouldn't say he is completely immoral - he does the right thing on occasion, and he tries to help, but he is clearly in it for personal gain, and he does some highly questionable/immoral things. According to the interpretation of the two guys doing the audio commentary track the scene where Hammer is questioned by the police after being released from the hospital was a jab at McCarthyism. But the guy they question is no saint, and in the end the police were right - things would have been far better if Hammer hadn't gotten more involved.
Because the film is loosely based on a novel I think that prevents the director & script writer from going overboard with their leftist angle - they have to follow the book at least somewhat, and the leftist/feminist angle doesn't really work. I very much doubt many people in the audience in 1955 saw it as anything other than a damn dine crime thriller. It is only in more recent times certain critics (& would-be critics) are claiming these elements are more pronounced than they really are, or making up nonsense about "repressed homosexuality".
Also, the modern/pop-art also shows up in Messiah of Evil
, with the murals painted on the wall. Working on getting a copy of the other Lovecaftian/private eye film mentioned in the article as well so I can rewatch that: the very underrated The Resurrected
from 1991 by Dan O'Bannon.
It's always infuriating to read or listen to modern "film experts" analyze old movies, especially from that period. To them everything is either about race, repressed sexuality, or McCarthyism. Just yesterday I was reading an article someone wrote about The Sweet Smell of Success where the fag who wrote it was claiming that Burt Lancaster's character was asexual while simultaneously saying he wanted to fuck his sister. He didn't even realize the contradiction in his own writing.
Another good example is with The Searchers. They all say it's trying to address America's history of racism towards Native Americans but they ignore the fact that it portrays the Indians as being much worse than the white men. John Ford himself said it's just an average western with no deeper meaning.
I think it's also that these soy critics like these movies but they have to rationalize their appreciation by fitting these films into their leftist political framework. Also most of the one's I've read never explain the how of their analytical claims. They just throw around words vaguely related to the film hoping no on one will ask them to spell it out.
That's probably the case. I think Frank Zappa said something similar about people who tried to read messages into old rock & roll and doowop songs. They have a view that a piece of art or entertainment can only have value if it makes some sociopolitical statement.

Pic related, kek.
>Hammer's use of violence did not seem unreasonable to me. They only part where he behaved like an asshole was to the would-be opera singer.
His blackmail racket would be the worst part of it I think, not so much the violence.
>the "diverse" parts of the film some critics hail
Damn, they're grasping at straws. Would be funny if they praised Birth of a Nation
for its diversity.
>People are even claiming Hammer is a repressed homosexual
kek, simply outrageous
>The supposed feminist take
Maybe they meant some sort of "empowered woman" bs when saying that, but it's hard to consider a femme fatale to be a feminist thing to include. If anything it's almost misogynistic. And speaking of femme fatales, I finally got to watching Inferno
(1953) yesterday. It's like blending Double Indemnity
, Citizen Kane
, Voici le temps des assassins
with a touch of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
, and even the Andean plane crash with the rugby team. Not saying all of these were inspirations, as the last two came after the film, but the film did remind me of them. In this one the femme fatale has the face of an angel, unlike what happened in Double Indemnity
. It's no masterpiece, though. For genre fanatics like myself it's a jewel, but only because the aspects I loved I loved too much to care about the ones I could have been harsher about, like the nearly constant reliance on inner monologue.
>Because the film is loosely based on a novel I think that prevents the director & script writer from going overboard with their leftist angle - they have to follow the book at least somewhat, and the leftist/feminist angle doesn't really work.

I mean, most of the noir filmmakers were leftists, but it was such a different era they made absolute masterpieces that in our context are even criticized for their "fascist slant" sometimes kek.>>84023>To them everything is either about race, repressed sexuality, or McCarthyism.
And he was absolutely right. It's astonishing how some "critics" even get factual data wrong sosmetimes.
Years ago I was visiting my grandmother and she had it on the Turner Classic Movies channel. They were showing a short promo about film noir in between two movies and one of the women they interviewed actually said that femme fatales were proto-feminists.

Jesus Christ, lel
First film I got to around to seeing in 2022: Jay Woelfel's 1989 low-budget horror film Beyond Dream's Door
. The film was shot in 25 days on a $40,000 budget in 1988, and it is without a doubt the most ambitious horror film of its kind and budget I have seen.
The Lovecraft influence is undeniable (& I could go on at some length about that), and so is Argento & Fulci, & perhaps Katz/Hyuck's Messiah of Evil
(since that also had a strong focus on dreams). The film blends has a unique surreal nightmarish quality to it, coupled with the æsthetics of Argento's Suspiria
, and the brutality & gore of Fulci's films. And the late 1980s low-budget source makes the highs that more impressive, & can easily forgive the limitations of its budget. This was the first feature film of a guy in his mid/late twenties on a very low budget, and none of the actors are pros.
Of course this film will not appeal to everyone, but those who enjoy the films of Argento & Fulci will very likely see plenty to like here. It has the nightmarish logic & focus on visuals & mood of Argento's Inferno
& Fulci's The Beyond
. The blue & red lighting is pure Argento, and in particular the make-up effects on Ben's younger brother has to be a homage to Suspiria

Wew, just saw this as I was leaving for the night. I'll look into it when I'm back.
The trailer isn't very enticing, but I doubt it does the film justice. The guy playing the teacher appears to be pretty good at it, the protagonist not so much. I'll get a copy and check it out when I have the chance.
I had trouble finding a copy
Nic! I was looking up the posthumous series Los disparates
by Goya for some inspiration, and while I was at it looked up his earlier series, Los Caprichos
. One of the 80 aquatints in that series was titled El sueño de la razón produce monstruos
- The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters
Now, I remembered the unofficial soundtrack to Beyond the Black Rainbow
had three tracks (12-14) with the same title:<#12 - The Sleep of Reason…<#13 - …<#14 - …produces Monsters
As you remember this unofficial soundtrack has 21 + 1 tracks, while the official soundtrack on vinyl has 7 tracks. The unofficial soundtrack could be using the chapter titles of the film, so I will look into that. It must be a reference to the artwork by Goya. Goya described the series Los Caprichos
as "the innumerable foibles and follies to be found in any civilised society, and from the common prejudices and deceitful practices which custom, ignorance, or self-interest have made usual." Los disparates
is darker still, and is described as Goya's vision of Hell:<This is Goya's Hell. Unlike the Christian Hell, no one is being punished or tormented. No one is conscious enough for that, and that's what makes it hellish.
Like these satirical works by Goya, Cosmatos' Beyond the Black Rainbow
satirises the New Age spirituality, search for truth, and hippy culture of the 1960s, showing us the extent of this madness and unchecked experimentation with drugs. It has been a while since I saw the film now, but I am working on getting a copy of it, so I can rewatch it, and find out if there are any further references to Goya's artwork.Disparate Goya | The Independent | The Independent: https://archive.fo/l09gN

I had missed this post.
I'm actually impressed you found that.>As you remember this unofficial soundtrack has 21 + 1 tracks, while the official soundtrack on vinyl has 7 tracks.
As a matter of fact, I never knew. But it's amazing they hid so many things in it. Makes me wonder what we haven't found yet. And it really underlines what a piece of art it is. Every detail seems to have a message in it.
The Swedish rape revenge exploitation film Thriller - en grym film
/Thriller - A Cruel Picture
is getting a new 4K 4 disc release by Vinegar Syndrome: https://vinegarsyndrome.com/collections/frontpage/products/thriller-a-cruel-picture
The film stars Christina Lindberg, whomst you might remember from the Japanese pinky violence film Sex & Fury
from 1973 alongside Reiko Ike. That was another film Tarantino ripped off in his Kill Bill
duology. The one-eyed female assassin with an eye-patch played by Lindberg in Thriller
is another thing Tarantino ripped off.
Lindberg reminds me a lot of Jess Franco's muse Soledad Miranda (Vampyros Lesbos
& She Killed in Ecstasy
Theatrical trailer: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=qidgceATF1k>>93376
This is why we need an audio commentary track on Beyond the Black Rainbow
; I want to hear Cosmatos discuss his inspirations and behind the scenes stuff, his writing process, making of, casting, etc.
I looked through my links from back when we discussed the film on /bestemma/, and I found this interview with Cosmatos: https://ghostarchive.org/archive/zCRxI
This wasn't bad. I watched it about ten years ago. Tarantino should have ripped off the part where she was a mute and thrown in some dirty hobo rape.
Tarantino is too much of a faggot to go into exploitation territory, at least now that he has been swallowed up by Hollywood and churns out pozz. The most he will do is cram in some mild foot fetish stuff for himself.
Judging by the Vinegar Syndrome stills, and the IMDb tags, there might a lesbian rape in Thriller
Yeah, one of her clients is a woman that slaps her into submission And then gets a slowmo shotgun scene
. There's a couple of rapes, that infamous eyeball scene, the ending with her 'trick' is slightly hokey but it's a good revenge anyways. I'm pretty sure they intersplice hardcore footage in some sex scenes (or I'm thinking of another movie). Vibenius must have been familiar with the underground amsterdam sex rings because his depiction of how the pimp breaks her down is literally how they do it, and this movie was back in the 70s so it's not like he had the internet to research from.
A few days back I was checking out Tommy Wiseau on MovieChat.org and came across this interesting thread: https://moviechat.org/nm1382072/Tommy-Wiseau/58a8c668ed028607cd95098e/Used-to-respect-this-guy-but-now-I-cant-after-today
/ourguy/ Tommy refused to do a scene in a mainstream film with a porn actress, and afterwards she took to her Tumblr blog to seethe about it and him. That final paragraph is just a treat to read: https://web.archive.org/web/20161216062702/http://heyitsapril.tumblr.com/post/107277957037/i-lost-a-role-in-a-mainstream-movie-today-because
Also, I just now came across Il sesso della strega
/Sex of the Witch
from 1973, described as an erotic gothic horror mystery film. Might be another Italian gothic giallo à la Emilio P. Miraglia's a notte che Evelyn uscì dalla tomba
/The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave
(1971) & La dama rossa uccide sette volte
/The Red Queen Kills Seven Times
wew! Had no idea it was this grim. Here I was expecting some typical revenge film from the '70s.
A few years ago I got a DVD copy of Vidal Raski's Dværgen
/The Sinful Dwarf
(1973), and this release includes two versions, a theatrical one, and one with hardcore scenes. I think the hardcore scenes were originally there, but were cut for a theatrical release in some areas.
The Vinegar Syndrome release of Thriller
is due in late May, so that leaves me some time to get some films off my backlog.
I had completely overlooked this, sounds like that giallo could be some serious kino.
Hilarious to read about Tommy being based like that too, kek.
I've seen a version of this were it looks as if the hardcore scenes were spliced back into the film at some point because there was a noticeable difference in quality. It wasn't bad as exploitation films go but not particularly outstanding either. Bringing up these movies reminds me though that we've pretty much seen the end of 'exploitation' films. I haven't see any of you mention Lair of the White Wyrm, a british movie based on a stoker novel and inspired by italian movies no matter how hard Ken Russel the director tries to deny it. Ken Russel is a british film maker that was doing similar work and made a good career out of paralleling his italian counterparts and introducing britians to an adapted form of italian cinema. At least two of his movies were labelled pornographic, and if you haven't seen his short movie A Kitten for Hitler then you aren't really interested in film, now are you?
Found a promising film yesterday by chance: Haunt
from 2019. The story is probably pretty standard fare, but the visuals are very arresting and powerful, and I adore the Halloween æsthetic and setting; the beautiful and over-the-top Halloween decorations are just so appealing. There are a ton of bonus features on the Collector's Edition Blu-ray release, so it is clear this is not just a cheap hackjob - they actually put some attention to detail here, there are two audio commentary tracks, and features on the sound design…
It got a rather poor score from some hag who reviews films over at Bloody Disgusting, so I can only assume that means it is free of leftist agenda and just wants to entertain.HAUNT - Official Trailer: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=f8ZuloddLi4

The design of the ghost(?) mask in particular is just beautiful, and reminds me a lot of a quote by M. R. James:<What first interested me in ghosts? This I can tell you quite definitely. In my childhood I chanced to see a toy Punch and Judy set, with figures cut out in cardboard. One of these was the Ghost. It was a tall figure habited in white with an unnaturally long and narrow head, also surrounded with white, and a dismal visage.Ghosts - Treat Them Gently! - Robert Hood's Site: https://archive.ph/zZnjm
To tell the truth I haven't actually seen Dværgen
yet - I bought it years ago, at the same time I bought Blastfighter
(1984), but Dværgen is still in its plastic wrapping.
I did bring up the two Doris Wishman films with Chesty Morgan on tv, but I've yet to get them. If anyone has them, they are certainly not seeding them.
Jim Wynorski is still making exploitation films, but the quality of his later output looks highly questionable at best.
I do want to check out Cheerleader Massacre
(2003), but first I've gotta watch The Slumber Party Massacre
(1982), since it is a sequel to that.
Wynorski has an upcoming film called Bigfoot or Bust
, and there are some recognisable names there, like Lisa London, but I'm not sure the style of comedy is my cup of tea. It looks like he has fallen for the "so bad it's good" meme, so now he is making ironic film bad on purpose, rather than trying to make entertaining B-movies.
As Joe-Bob Briggs said, the worst crime a film could commit is to not entertain.https://web.archive.org/web/20220420123712/https://bloody-disgusting.com/exclusives/3711602/first-look-at-jim-wynorskis-bigfoot-or-bust-exclusive/BIGFOOT OR BUST Trailer: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=0wvMHfTtWJE

Also, I have been meaning to get into some Nazisploitation; Elsa Fräulein ϟϟ
(1977), Helga, She-Wolf of Stilberg
(1978), and La bestia in calore
/The Beast in Heat
(1977). Tried watching Ilsa, She Wolf of the ϟϟ
(1975) some years ago, but I just found it tiresome. Perhaps I ought to give it another chance?
Holy based, can't believe I missed it.
Watched Kôji Shiraishi's ある優しき殺人者の記録
/A Record of Sweet Murder
from 2014 yesterday, and I just finished the 1989 slasher Rush Week
I have discussed Shiraishi's Lovecraftian found footage horror films before, including two long, rambling posts on ノロイ
/Noroi - The Curse
(2005) on the (not so) sekrit club. That is, IMHO, the best example of a cosmic horror film there is. A Record of Sweet Murder
is also a found footage film, though maybe more of a thriller than a horror film. 90% of the film is shot in one single take by Shiraishi, who not only wrote and directed the film, but also plays the camera man. The film works with similar ideas as Shiraishi's オカルト
(2009); a killer who gets messages from God and sees miracles that convinces him to carry out the actions God tells him to. Occult
had more of a documentary approach, while A Record of Sweet Murder
is the raw footage shot by the camera man as he and a journalist interview the serial killer. There are other similarities between the two, but A Record of Sweet Murder
actually has a very happy ending, which was a nice surprise after sitting through so much bloodshed, trauma, and rape.
Found footage horror is not known for beautiful visuals and stylish cinematography, but the climax of the film was pretty nice; the grittiness, blood, and death, and the sunset seen from the roof of the apartment building… The big climax was also quite reminiscent of Can Evrenol's Housewife
(2017). Not sure if you saw that one as well, but WebMAnon and I discussed that one at some length on 8chan.A Record of Sweet Murder - Trailer with English subtitles: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=H5Pk_pQlKxQFilm Review: 'A Record of Sweet Murder' - Variety: https://archive.ph/YRfsj

was a lot of fun. I am digging these late '80s slashers, and it takes a lot to go wrong with a slasher set at a university with fraternities and sororities. It was blatantly obvious who the killer was, but I liked the journalist protagonist quite a bit, the love interest was pretty cool, and even some of the other frat bros were funny and memorable, and there are so many gorgeous topless women in this.Rush Week Trailer 1988: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=uez7IQ1sy6ARush Week

Whilst looking up Rush Week
I came across Juan Piquer Simón's 1982 giallo/slasher Pieces
. I have already seen two of his films: The Rift
(1989) and Cthulhu Mansion
(1990), though I need to rewatch the last one. He has also made (the cult film?) Slugs
(1988). This one looks like a lot of fun, and the tagline is the cherry on top: IT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU THINK IT IS!Trailer for Pieces (1982): https://yewtu.be/watch?v=S1cnjEAZOjkPieces Original Trailer ( Juan Piquer Simón , 1982): https://yewtu.be/watch?v=ShYV_jTxijsPieces

Dear friend! You probably feel like talking to a wall here but please be assured it's not the case, I've been just short of time. I got a copy of Beyond Dream's Door
but it's been sitting there unwatched. As soon as this stage of the project I'm working on is over and it goes to someone else's hands for a while I'll have some time to spare.
By the way, which film do you suggest I start with when I have the time? Maybe following the discussion chronologically as I was planning isn't the best way.
Nic! Just came across the trailer for To Tokyo
, and I think it might be worth checking out. If you enjoy that slower, atmospheric kind of horror. The trailer made me think of a blend of The Giant
. I have yet to see the last one, but the pacing, the attention on sound, and a foreigner in a country where they don't speak much, if any, English, is very similar to Memoria
based on the trailer. The Giant
is not a typical horror film, but it did have a very a strong eerie atmosphere, and the ending was terrific. Think I left some comments on it over at the sekrit club.
The To Tokyo
trailer was uploaded in 2013, but IMDb says it is from 2018, and the distributor says 2019, so I guess it has been in release hell for years. The film looks beautiful though, and according to the distributor it was shot on location in Tokyo and South Africa.To Tokyo The Film - Teaser Trailer: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=XvjYShp8V_Q

because I searched for a trailer from another film released by the same distributor. No trailer yet for Unboxed

Fingers crossed Maniac Cop
turns out great!>>100465Rush Week
, easily. I'm not sure A Record of Sweet Murder
is quite your thing, and Rush Week
has some very interesting similarities to Scream Queens
, and might even have been one of the many films that show paid homage to/was inspired by: Rush Week
is set at a university, there is a boisterous fraternity loathed by the dean, and the protagonist is a journalism student who thinks there is a serial killer loose on campus even though the dean tries to rationalise the disappearances.
I got the 25 GB copy of Rush Week
, it has dual English/Russian audio, and the audio commentary, but not a whole lot of seeders.
Still working on getting the bonus features for

I know, right? First Anita Sarkeesian, then Nasim Perad (Gigi), and finally Nasim Sabz/Aghdam…
Damn, that show was so entertaining. A real love letter to slasher and giallo, and who knows how Murphy managed to get away with some of the things Chanel said.
Planning on giving the MTV series Scream
a watch soon. At least the two first seasons. MTV was either forced or had the brilliant idea to reboot the show with a new story and a far more "diverse" (i.e. non-white) cast. Keke Palmer from Scream Queens
is in the third season btw.
Since they rebooted it so suddenly I am not sure if they actually reveal who the killer (of the first two) seasons is. There is an interview with the makers on Bloody Disgusting, talking about what they would do if they continued with the story and characters of the first two seasons. Not read it yet to avoid any and all spoilers though.
Want to experience this as blind as possible. Only the promotional material, trailers, screenshots, posters, and interviews from before the first season started.

Do you have all the archived Best Emma Wars threads? I looked through my 13(!) text files of links, but I could not find it. Maybe it is in another folder, or it got lost when I switched my portable HD.
It is weird, but I almost miss his autistic ass now. Having him sperg out by just posting a screen from Drive
or Scream Queens
was something else. I doubt we will see a sperg of his caliber again.
>We need to seed and feed the Middle East. For Scandinavia. I'm sure Gormr gamli and Harald hårfagre would approve.
Yes! Heil og sæl, comrade! I do not get why some many anons are lusting after chinks, gooks, and nips, when you have actual Aryan qts. Hell, you have one anon on this site who has junglefever. No one ever seems to bring up the fact that Aryans from the Middle East even exist.
>have you been to the temple lately?
Not in a while. Been working on that idea I mentioned there though. Looking into articles on the æsthetics of horror and in particular giallo/slasher, and comparing them to artistic techniques like chiaroscuro and tenebrism.
At first the tone of it was much more like Tragedy Girls
, but now it might end up more like Nightcrawler
(2014), still comedic, but darker, and more serious than the deliberate over-the-top silliness and camp of Tragedy Girls
>>100900>Do you have all the archived Best Emma Wars threads? I looked through my 13(!) text files of links, but I could not find it. Maybe it is in another folder, or it got lost when I switched my portable HD.

I know what you mean, it was fun to have a village idiot we could poke at will. Remember that time he sperged for like 130 posts in a row?

Cheers! I will make sure to save the links this time, and maybe to down memory lane and chortle at Zach's autistic spergouts.
>I know what you mean, it was fun to have a village idiot we could poke at will. Remember that time he sperged for like 130 posts in a row?
The only spergs we have around now are just not as fun. The soyjak spammer who is constantly seething about /cow/ is the only one you can rely on for some entertainment.
>Sad! Many such cases!
Yes, we need to redpill some of these anons with yellow fever. That one guy with junglefever is probably too far gone and has AIDS, but those other guys can come around I think.
>Impressive, very nice.
It would be if you would adapt it, I think. The issue is translating these artistic styles in text. I fear I will end up falling into the same trap as my earlier story. Did look up what people wrote about Stephen King's writing style, and I see why you compared it to his works. Even he admits his works suffers from "literary elephantiasis".
>Just make sure it's a cocaine-fueled, neon-soaked, bubble gum-wrapped, mayhem-infused, speed-driven universe *wink*.
Going for a high school setting, so neon-soaked and bubble gum-wrapped is a given, but not so sure on the cocaine.
On a related note, I watched the trailer for Gaspar Noe's LVX ÆTERNA
, and I think he has gone a bit overboard with the flashing multi-coloured strobe-lights.
Also, I knew there was something familiar about the actor who played the dean in Rush Week
- he was also in H.P. Lovecraft's The Deep Ones
(2021). I seem to remember you mentioning that film a while back. I saw it last year. Not that impressed by it, but the female lead has that Gigi MILF look, it has tentacle sex, more MILFs, and that troon character
could easily be intended as a ywnbaw style jab at troons; like the Deep One/human hybrids it is a mockery of a human and has to masquerade as a normal human being.
It is just so jarring and bizarre that it really comes off as a deliberate jab.
By the way, what is your opinion on Jennifer Love Hewitt's body of work?
The other day I looked her up, and I think she has that thing.
Not sure if her kinography is worth looking into though. I vaguely remember watching I Know What You Did Last Summer

>The only spergs we have around now are just not as fun. The soyjak spammer who is constantly seething about /cow/ is the only one you can rely on for some entertainment.
And even then he's just a boring sperg. Zach's meltdowns had that thing
, as you say.
>Yes, we need to redpill some of these anons with yellow fever. That one guy with junglefever is probably too far gone and has AIDS, but those other guys can come around I think.
I don't know man, after you go down those dark abysses coming back is hard. They've stared into the eye of the nonwhite and it has stared back into them.
>It would be if you would adapt it, I think. The issue is translating these artistic styles in text. I fear I will end up falling into the same trap as my earlier story.

Don't feel too bad about it. In a way the first version is like a painting, you add to it. Refining it for final consumption is sculpture, you trim away the excess material.
>Going for a high school setting, so neon-soaked and bubble gum-wrapped is a given, but not so sure on the cocaine.
Worked for David, kek. Surely there's some Leo with a truck to sell it to the kids.
>On a related note, I watched the trailer for Gaspar Noe's LVX ÆTERNA, and I think he has gone a bit overboard with the flashing multi-coloured strobe-lights.
I was expecting to say you were exaggerating but I agree. It's like it's meant as an experiment to trigger seizures rather than having some kind of creative direction. Also speaking of trailers I watched the Scream
trailer but I'm not sure it has that thing
. Excessively meta while not offering much in the style department, I feel I'll be let down by the show.
I don't get how it looks so cheap when the sets clearly aren't terrible, did they shoot this on video or something? Or maybe it's just the trailer.
>I seem to remember you mentioning that film a while back. I saw it last year. Not that impressed by it, but the female lead has that Gigi MILF look, it has tentacle sex, more MILFs, and that troon character could easily be intended as a ywnbaw style jab at troons; like the Deep One/human hybrids it is a mockery of a human and has to masquerade as a normal human being. It is just so jarring and bizarre that it really comes off as a deliberate jab.
Top kek, I don't remember mentioning it (had to look it up just now) but that's hilarious. Maybe it was WebManon?
>By the way, what is your opinion on Jennifer Love Hewitt's body of work?
She looks good as a redhead, not a huge fan of her as faux Audrey Hepburn.
>The other day I looked her up, and I think she has that thing.
I think it looks forced, almost as bad as Flopson trying to do Julia.
>Not sure if her kinography is worth looking into though. I vaguely remember watching I Know What You Did Last Summer.
if you feel like watching a CGI cat comedy. On second thought, maybe not.
Also speaking of having that thing
I think maybe we fucked up picking up Macarena as our muse. She's so perfect people just give up and there's no spergs to beat down. With R*berts at least you had things like the domestic violence. Macarena is basically the female Ryan Gosling: is awesome, stars in awesome films, and she's basically impossible to hate unless you're some high-grade retard. And even then, the highest grade retard we had left. She doesn't seem to inspire enough rage in the plebs. I almost wish we picked -may the Gods of Neon forgive me for having the demonic drive to be a pusher for this finger bleeder- Amber Heard. If I weren't already too old I'd have fear of entering the temple after this.

>Zach watched this same vid 55k times
>>100980>I don't know man, after you go down those dark abysses coming back is hard. They've stared into the eye of the nonwhite and it has stared back into them.
Yeah, they might need some serious deconversion therapy to get from the brink of the abyss. Maybe electroshock therapy might do the trick?
>I don't get how it looks so cheap when the sets clearly aren't terrible, did they shoot this on video or something? Or maybe it's just the trailer.
It was shot on film, and I think they managed to get the most they could out of the budget they had to work with.
Here is the official promo trailer from Vinegar Syndrome: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=-H3xFP8FBR4
Not a whole lot of gore and blood, though there is a beheading
. The Vinegar Syndrome Blu-ray release looks great, so if you are going to watch it, get a copy of that. There is probably some pan & scan VHS releases out there as well.
>I think it looks forced,
A bit too harsh, I think. Her eyes are this beautiful hazel; at times they appear more blue, and other times a greenish light brown. That smile of hers can melt anyone's resolve, and I doubt it is necessary to bring up her two most impressive assets as they are quite evident and hard to ignore.
>Maybe Garfield if you feel like watching a CGI cat comedy. On second thought, maybe not.
I might actually. Would you recommend it?
>Also speaking of having that thing
You are not wrong. Macarena is maybe too perfect. R*berts triggered Zach without fail, not just the accusations of nepotism, or her aunt's looks, but also the HRC letterman jacket… we didn't have to troll him at all - R*berts did it for us. Good times!
Turd stars in capeshit and defecates on the bed. Not sure she would work as a source for inspiration.
What we need, hypothetically speaking, of course, is someone who has a kinography we can get behind, and who triggers shitposters like Zach. Someone like Anita Sarkeesian.
>Also speaking of trailers I watched the Scream trailer but I'm not sure it has that thing. Excessively meta while not offering much in the style department, I feel I'll be let down by the show.
Well, what do you think about Riverdale
then? I am vaguely aware of the silly-looking comics, but they are leaning hard into Twin Peaks
territory with this updated TV-series: small-town setting, murder mystery/beautiful, young girl is found murdered, dark secrets and undercurrents, high school drama and romance, a 1950s diner, Mädchen Amick… Skeet Ulrich and Luke Perry are also in this show, and that redhead, Madelaine Petsch is pretty damn handsome

Guess I will be watching the Scream
series on my own then. Already got both seasons (10 + 15 gb) to go, so unless the show is horrible I might as well get through it.The main character is named Emma btw. I thought that was a good sign, plus the apparent lack of non-whites, and seeing a slasher done as a two-season TV-series sounded interesting.>>101024
I got one min and thirty seconds into that video. Flopson comes out with the approved message talking to a troon to peddle some flick where she had a bit part, and then you have John Iadarola adding his fucking retarded nonsense onto it. At the very least Cenk is passionate and (intentionally) funny, John is just a vapid soy-fuelled, no-fun faggot.

I don't care what the cinema snobs say, this is slasher kino.
Hot, show penis pls.
The Bly-ray release had sub-optimal picture and audio:<Killer Workout is presented using the best available elements provided by Slasher // Video. Not sourced from an HD Master; remastered from PAL Beta SP and upconverted to Bluray and DVD specifications
With that in mind, I don't mind the upscaling in that clip at all. This is the best quality we have as of now. Hopefully the original film elements are found and given a proper release. Sadly David Prior has passed away, so we won't get a commentary track with him, or any new interviews, but I hope someone gives us a proper high-def release one day.
This is one of my all-time favourite slashers, and not in some ironic, guilty pleasure way. It has everything I love about the '80s, the music, the cars, the women, the outfits, and it is stylish and sleek, and it's just plain fun.
The lighting, the setting, and the killer's choice of weapon and the black driving gloves… pure kino.Killer Workout trailer: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=H4PgQzOm0vwGetting a Killer Workout: An Interview With David and Ted Prior - BLEEDING SKULL!: https://archive.ph/ZXq49

You know Ellen is actually a cute girl even tho she's now a deformed manlet in her 40's. Few women are capable of this feat.
