It’s another Friday, and another chance for me to talk about B-Movies.
This week’s is what most would consider a “mockbuster”. It’s an Italian and US co-production totally aping off the hugely successful 1973 horror movie, The Exorcist, called Beyond the Door. Well, it’s called that here. In Italy, it is called Who Are You? and in the UK, it was released under the title Devil Within Her – which sounds like a completely different type of movie. Continue reading “Beyond the Door (1974)”
I told you back in October that Demonia would not be the only time Lucio Fulci gets featured here on B-Movie Enema.
I mean, after all, that movie sucked, and he made so many other movies that were so much better. Even his not so great movies were way better than Demonia. Frankly, the only way to really make up for choosing that stinker is to cover the movie that he is probably best known for directing, 1979’s Zombie.
However, to really talk about Zombie, we need to take a step backwards in time to a few years before this movie would see the light of day. Continue reading “Zombie (1979)”
See? I told you I’d get back to Italy before this month’s out.
This time, I’m looking at Demonia. It was directed by Lucio Fulci, who is often considered one of the better Italian horror directors. In fact, I’m itching to do his Zombie so look for that in the near(ish) future. Unfortunately, where Zombie is considered a really good movie, Demonia is often cited as one of Fulci’s weakest. And to be honest with you, despite the name invoking imagery of demons and various demonic stuff, the movie is a little more witchcraft, ghosts, and a touch of satanism as opposed to the other movies this month. Continue reading “Demonia (1990)”
You know what? It’s been a long time since I’ve watched a truly Italian horror flick for a B-Movie Enema. In the early days of the blog, I covered a couple Italian flicks like The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave and The Eerie Midnight Horror Show. I have seen a bunch of Italian (and other European) movies in my day, and I’m surprised it’s been since White Comanche in the summer of 2016 that I’ve returned to Europe’s boot.
Also, since this is October, it’s time for a new Halloween theme for B-Movie Enema! This year, I’m going for some good old fashioned demon action with this year’s Nights of Demons month! To kick off this theme, I am returning to Italy for the Lamberto Bava-directed, Dario Argento-produced Demons from 1985. This won’t be the only time we’ll visit Italy this month either, so look out for that. Continue reading “Demons (1985)”
It was only a matter of time before B-Movie Enema was graced by this movie. White Comanche is listed by John Wilson, who founded the Golden Raspberry Awards (or Razzies as they are known by most) as one of the most enjoyably bad movies ever.
If you ask me, that all sounds awesome. But wanna know what’s better? It not only has Williams Shatner playing a high plains drifter type, but he also playing a second role as a leader of a Comanche tribe. That’s right! Double Shatner comin’ at yo’ face! Continue reading “White Comanche (1968)”
When I first thought about what it would be that I would watch for the Halloween edition of B-Movie Enema, I had some classics. I thought about something classic like The Creature from the Black Lagoon or The Giant Claw. I even thought about doing one of the Friday the 13th movies.
But then, I was all like, “Fuck it… Oasis of the Zombies.”
Here we have a French production about some treasure hunters in a film by Jesus Franco. It’s got Nazi zombies, so how can it be bad? (That’s not me setting up the fact that it’s likely bad. I’m being serious, how bad can a movie featuring Nazi zombies be bad???) Continue reading “Oasis of the Zombies (1981)”
The worms are waiting!
Okay, for this week’s B-Movie Enema, I have another horror film from the 1970s. Now, unlike last week’s, all the characters are supposedly English, but like last week’s cleansing, we have yet another Italian flick. However, There aren’t many other names this movie goes by other than the Italian or English translations.
From the 50-Movie Pure Terror DVD Set, our synopsis for this week reads: “An unstable English Lord, who mourns his deceased wife, frequents clubs looking for redheaded women to take to his home for bizarre activities. He eventually meets and marries a woman he hopes will drive away the demons from his tortured mind. Unfortunately, other forces are at work to drive the nobleman insane and spread terror throughout the household.”

Ravished! Violated! Possessed by Satan!
Welcome to your first B-Movie Enema – and do I have a treat for you tonight. Grab your popcorn and don’t forget your tickets for The Eerie Midnight Horror Show!
Let’s first tackle some basics about this week’s feature. From the 50-Movie Pure Terror set, the synopsis reads: “A young art student is tormented by strange, vivid dreams involving her being nailed to a cross, as well as other bizarre images. Her torment increases when the actual crucifix seen in her dreams comes to life!” Continue reading “The Eerie Midnight Horror Show (1974)”
