zatara2000
Last week Britney Murphy died and the world stood still. One day earlier, five time Oscar Nominated actress and one of the most respected leading ladies of Hollywood's Golden Age, Jennifer Jones, died at age 90 and nobody even noticed. Thats why today at PCA I present my tribute to Jennifer Jones whose story was a Hollywood drama all its own - full of love, luck, lust, betrayal, heartbreak, tragedy, madness and redemption. Hope you'll take a moment to remember Jennifer Jones by reading my latest article at popcultureaddict.com

JENNIFER JONES - 1919 - 2009

Torture Garden is yet another of the Amicus horror anthology films from the 1960s. If you’re a fan of these movies then this one is a fairly typical member of the breed and you might enjoy it.

Not Quite Hollywood is a fascinating documentary on the weird and wonderful movies of the ozploitation boom of the 70s and 80s.

Satanik (1968) [Nov. 27th, 2009|08:38 pm]

Both the title and the poster art would lead you to believe that this 1968 Spanish-Italian co-production is going to be somewhat in the style of Mario Bava’s Danger: Diabolik! but in fact Satanik has nothing in common with Bava’s classic. Although it’s also based on a European comic strip there are no masked criminals or masked crime-fighters in sight.

Wake in Fright was the movie that really began the renaissance of the Australian film industry. Although it was an Australian-US co-production directed by a Canadian it remains the most powerful movie ever made in Australia.

Killer Nun (1978) [Nov. 25th, 2009|06:00 pm]

Killer Nun (Suor Omicidi) is a 1978 release that was included on the British Director of Public Prosecutions’ list of banned video nasties in the 80s. It’s now been released uncut, and watching it demonstrates the utter insanity of British censorship practices. It barely even qualifies as a horror movie, much less a video nasty.

the great video nasty moral panic [Nov. 25th, 2009|12:39 am]
the LJ cult movie community

The history of movies has also been the history or moral panics about movies. One of the most notorious of all these moral panics erupted in Britain in the early 1980s - the infamous Video Nasties scare. This led to a major censorship crackdown on home video releases in the UK, in the form of the Video Recordings Act of 1984.

Attempts were made to ban 72 films, and 39 films were eventually banned. Most have now been released, many in uncut form.

I've seen The Beyond, Don't Look in the Basement (a terrific little movie and why it was ever considered a video nasty is a mystery), Flesh for Frankenstein (one of my all-time favourite movies), I Spit on Your Grave, Tenebre (an overrated Dario Argento giallo), Inferno (one of Argento's better efforts), and Twitch of the Death Nerve (which I consider to be Mario Bava's worst film).

So that's seven out of 39. How many have you seen?

lost Belgian vampire classic [Nov. 24th, 2009|11:34 pm]

Mondo Macabro are releasing two films from Belgian director Jean-Louis Van Belle, including what is billed as a lost vampire classic, The Sadist Has Red Teeth, from 1971.

I don't see how you could go wrong with a title like that, plus it's from Mondo Macabro and that's good enough for me. I want it.

The Lickerish Quartet (1970) [Nov. 24th, 2009|02:51 pm]

Nobody ever combined art and erotica more seductively or more intelligently (or more stylishly) than Radley Metzger. His 1970 movie The Lickerish Quartet may well be his masterpiece.
