When you start a film off with exploding heads, severed limbs that spray arterial blood like a garden hose, and a chainsaw fight, you can be pretty sure that a film is going to be over-the-top and live up to the word gore in its name.
Westerners Nick Reece, Trudy Calder and Lucas Byrne star in this totally insane far east cocktail of exploitation super trash that defies sense, reality and logic to such an extent that you may suffer an out of body experience while viewing it.
Low budget, filmed in New Orleans monster laughs starring screenwriter Billy Holliday, Chuck Long and Chuck Bush in a pile of slimy swamp trash that opens with creature POV, an asthma attack, a spot of wildlife, some Jaws (74) music and a ridiculous gory murder.
I've got questionable taste in films but fortunately for everyone the world is safe from me ever making one. You can all sleep a bit easier at night knowing that I have no desire to inflict a film on you.
The same can't be said of Kim Jong-il. Yes, that Kim Jong-il, dictator of North Korea, who also happens to be the country's film dictator. Did I say dictator? I meant Happy Fun Time Coordinator. Not only does he love crappy movies more than I do, he's willing to go to incredible lengths to make them, including kidnapping a director and his wife to make a Godzilla ripoff.
Astoundingly inept half price horror from crock-jock Milligan. Again, it's shot in a tiny house, is badly lit, filmed, recorded,scripted, acted and it's another re-run of his much used plot about a squabbling family of vampires / werwolves, a suprising secret, a considerable will and a sequence of amature dramatics that'd be boo'd off stage at an infant school play.
Eden Log is an atmospheric sci-fi/horror film from French director Franck Vestiel. It was the subject of mixed reviews at Toronto International Film Festival '08. The slow pacing, particularly in the first half, may be off-putting to some. Give it a chance and you just might like it.
A post-apocalyptic tale of Christian steam-punk space knights gallivanting around with bayonet laserguns and bagpipes, battling puppets and papier-mâché demons. The whole thing is awash with gore, aliens, cleavage, and perversion. And then Satan shows up.
It's sort of like the Dark Crystal meets Robot Bastard! and the Spanish Inquisition in hell, but with really crappy special effects.
The Seventh Curse is a prime example of Hong Kong film-making at its craziest and most over the top. It's goofy, violent, and fun. Filled with kung fu, evil sorcerers, the undead, gunfights, crazy alien baby monsters, gore, human sacrifice, ass-kicking monks, and Chow Yun Fat. If you haven't seen it, you should.
After a brief flashback to the finale of King Kong (76) in which the big ape is machine gunned from the roof of the WTC twin towers, we then zip ahead 10 years and Linda Hamilton (Terminator - 84) is a head surgeon looking for a miracle that will save the large monkeys life (that's right, Kong is still alive and on life support!).
