Ah… Women in prison flicks. I almost feel like I’m home after that literal trip through hell last week. What’s interesting is that this movie sort of has a connection to that bonkers Bruceploitation movie.
Violence in a Women’s Prison stars Laura Gemser, an Indonesian actress who starred in a lot of Euro-trash exploitation fair. She starred in X-rated stuff too. This is mostly due to her playing “Black” Emanuelle. Yeah… Remember the “femme fatale” in last week’s movie? Her name was Emanuelle too. So what’s that all about?

Every now and then… Every so often… The stars align and I come across a movie that may be one of the most important films of our time. If it isn’t necessarily one of “the most important” it certainly is one of the most perfect movies ever made.
Pull up a chair kiddies, and let me tell you the tale of 1984’s dance-ercize epic Heavenly Bodies.
And, besides, summer is coming – it’s time to make sure you got your beach bods ready for the sun and fun of the warmer weather! Heavenly Bodies is about Samantha Blair, played by the incredibly cute and likable Cynthia Dale, who is an aerobics instructor at a Canadian fitness club named, well, Heavenly Bodies. She soon finds herself in the battle of her life as she competes against one of the lead instructors at a mega fitness club chain for a spot on a local television workout show. This brings her face-to-face with big wig bullshit and the only way for her to fight and defeat the evils of capitalism is to dance the fuck out of it. Continue reading “Heavenly Bodies (1984)”
Let’s get back into some good ol’ fashioned weirdo 80s horror, courtesy of Vinegar Syndrome! I swear, 2019 should just be called “The Year of Vinegar Syndrome” for B-Movie Enema. Looking back and ahead, I’ve got so many VS titles on my calendar, I should start asking for official sponsorship!
This time around, it is the French-produced, shot in Florida Nightmare Weekend from 1985. Apparently, we’ve got ourselves something special here – head explosions, softcore sex, bikers, rollerskating, telepathic puppet… And Dale Midkiff of Pet Sematary fame. Just when I thought I would be all in with weirdo horror movie made in Florida, the weirdo horror movie of a state, you had to toss all the rest of that jazz into it, too? Continue reading “Nightmare Weekend (1985)”
Back in January I covered Lucio Fulci’s masterpiece in undead horror – Zombie. It’s fitting that I now look at its sequel, Zombie 3.
Wait. Lemme check something. 1. 2. 3… 4. Gotcha. Okay, the math checks out there. What are those titles again?
Zombie… Zombie 3…
Oh, goddammit, it’s Italian. Of course the sequels are all fucked. Continue reading “Zombie 3 (1988)”
Damn you, Vinegar Syndrome…
You release so many movies that I need to not only see, but also write about in near manic volume. This time around, not only do you have me at a movie that I remember seeing constantly at video stores in the 80s and 90s, but you also have me going all in on an anthology flick. This is new levels of villainy, VS.
But not only that, this week’s feature, Night Train to Terror, is infamously known as being among some of the hammiest and worst cinema could possibly offer. What’s curious is that this movie isn’t without some interesting people. There’s B-Movie awesome guy, Cameron Mitchell. That seems pretty solid. I’ve seen lots of his work. There’s also John Phillip Law. He was in Barbarella. Together, Law and Mitchell were in Space Mutiny! How could this possibly be bad? Continue reading “Night Train to Terror (1985)”
We’ve got two more weeks for Blue March and you know what we need? A vacation. Let’s head out to the mystical Orient to get some eastern eroticism.
We start by first checking in with The Vixens of Kung Fu.
Gee. I wonder why this one appeals to me. Vixens. Kung Fu. Yup, the math checks out. But it’s not only that, but it also has some sweet, sweet revenge. The movie is about a young prostitute getting brutally assaulted. She runs away and finds a secret group of hot ass kung fu masters. They train her and she gets her revenge all in a real tidy 70-minute package. Continue reading “The Vixens of Kung Fu (1975)”
Howdy Enemaniacs! Welcome back to the third feature in this month’s Blue March theme – Prisoner of Paradise!
For this entry, we’re bringing back a couple returning items. First, big daddy John Holmes is returning after taking a bow (among other things) in Dracula Sucks. We also travel back into the wild blue yonder of Nazisploitation – and I bet you are all real excited about that.
But, let me just say, you people are sick. You know how I know this? I know my blog’s stats. I know them well, I do. If I look at the top viewed posts, all FIVE of the movies marked with the “nazisploitation” tag rank in the top 13 posts. Then, on top of that, Dracula Sucks, the other released adult movie I’ve covered on this blog, also ranks in the top 10. The most viewed post at the time of this writing? The Lost Empire which has tits flopping all over the place in it. Continue reading “Prisoner of Paradise (1980)”
Blue March continues with not only another adult film, but an adult film directed by Anthony Spinelli. Spinelli was kind of known for his work in genres. Hey, it’s not just a prono, it’s a sci-fi/drama that deals with relationships and kinks and sexual inadequacy. This isn’t just a skin flick with a really hot redhead, it’s a film noir/crime drama type of movie too!
Dixie Ray Hollywood Star is the latter. We have a hot, but enigmatic redhead movie star, Dixie Ray, played by Lisa Deleeuw. She comes into contact (both figuratively and literally) with P.I. Nick Popodopolis, played by superstar adult actor John Leslie, who is caught up in a mystery after finding a dead woman on his floor.
Even better? This movie has the one, the only, Cameron Mitchell! Continue reading “Dixie Ray Hollywood Star (1983)”
