Mostly interested in T.R.A.S.H. and sleaze™
Lover of all that is weird and unusual
I don't watch a lot of contemporary stuff
A shy dude shoots some questionable substances into his veins and becomes a full-blown psychopath. He meets a bored young woman who likes to walk around naked in front of strangers and who has absolutely no qualms about killing someone with a pool cue. Together they get into all kinds of mischief..
you know, your standard love story!
This gains a whole extra star for the giant rubber octopus attacks (and scoring one of those attacks with stolen music from 2001: A Space Odyssey.)
It's a fun sword and sandal type movie that while still being cheap, actually has better production value than most other Turkish B-movies.
Seher Siniz is a Turkish Edwige Fenech look-alike, who like the real Fenech, doesn't mind showing some (side-) boob. Come to think of it.. there is actually much more T&A in…
NLC27 has some of the most basic nazisploitation elements. There are at least three instances where women are asked to line-up and strip naked, there are invasive medical check-ups and ofcourse the girls will have to service those brave Aryan boys. It doesn't add anything that is new or worthwhile to the mix though. There were a couple of hardcore inserts, but those are never good or anything. At least there wasn't a lot of nihilism/nastiness here. So hooray, no real footage of Nazi committed atrocities.
A fun little krimi (German crime movie) from Spanish smut meister Jess Franco. It must be said though that uncle Jess is really on his best behaviour here. He delivers a very solid crime flick that forgoes his usual sleaze formula. What it does have is a compelling plot, inspired cinematography (those Franco trademarked weird angles) and some of the best actors Jess had worked with up until that point.
Horst Tappert has a significant part in this movie, so it's quite possible that my mom, who is a big Derrick fiend, would enjoy this as well.
William Friedkin, Guillermo del Toro, Agnès Varda and Wim Wenders, all did one of those Criterion closet showcase videos at one point in time, where they highlighted certain movies in the Criterion catalogue. None of them ever picked up Equinox and talked about how much they loved it, or how it influenced their own work. That seems to me like an egregious omission on their part, quite frankly..
..at least Bill Hader talked about the best date movie ever made..
