6/10 … Now, here’s my dilemma. I hate to criticize these small companies that in my opinion does an amazing job making these obscure movies available. To me, it’s not just entertaining to see these old flicks, but important historical works so they don’t just fade away into obscurity and becomes an anecdote. But here’s my point, when it’s advertised as ”Brand New 4k Restoration from Original Elements”, you get certain expectations. When you then pop it into your Blu-ray player and it looks like a 5th generation VHS copy with something looking like the green northern lights across the screen throughout more or less the entire movie, then you kind of feel like you have been duped. I get that the source material can be shit, but maybe yiu should tell us about that?
5/10 … I love me a good Giallo, but I have to be honest, I usually lose interest half way through, and unfortunatly this is the case here as well. It’s beautifully shot during autumn in Venezia, Italy in those lovely 1970’s dark colours. It has those Argento-esque child choirs, some nudity, but more or less blood free.
Unfortunately it has one of my pet peeves in older horror movies, when a killer attack someone, the victim does nothing to fight back. Just presses themselves against the wall, screaming. I mean, a retarded penguin have more survival skills than these people. It’s also filled with nonsense, like strangling someone in a movie theater without anyone noticing. No kicking and screaming, just lets herself get strangled.
8/10 … I just love this, the fantastic 1970’s scenary in Italy. Small cars and scooters in high speed chases, old school bankrobbery, a rogue cop who bitch-slaps every single person he meets, machine guns that never run out of bullets, a hunchback that has the worst aim when shooting etc. etc. Maurizio Meril is awesome as the police with no rules.

RE/Search No. 10: Incredibly Strange Films is a thick magazine or a book about American underground and other films. It was guest edited by Jim Morton, with associate editor Boyd Rice, in the RE/Search series edited by V. Vale and Andrea Juno, originally published in 1985 and expanded in 1986. I love these RE/Search magazines that came out in the 80’s. They often have that […]
RE/Search Publications is an American magazine and book publisher, based in San Francisco, founded by its editor V. Vale in 1980. In several issues, Andrea Juno was also credited as an editor. It was the successor to Vale’s earlier punk rock fanzine Search & Destroy (1977–1979), which was started with small donations, provided to Vale by Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. RE/Search has published tabloid-sized magazines and […]
For us, the fans of the Friday the 13th franchise it has long been a wet dreams to get these early movies completely uncut. But it has felt like you might as well forget about it, since according to all ”experts” it has been thrown away a long time ago and could not be found […]
This book came out in 2010, and are now long out-of-print. You will have to sell your sibling to get the money for it second hand … or at least pony-up about $100 for it. Okey, your sibling might have a higher (or lower) value than that, but you get the point. Further down on […]
9/10 … The show in itself is really good, and they travel to all kinds of locations to investigate. Since it’s American produced we get the usual half whispering narrator and some shaky hand held camera to make it more exciting for the general public. But all in all really good.
This escape theory is certainly interesting and since I’m an open minded person, I don’t discard claims like this when there are enough evidence to back them up. But the official story might as well be correct one, we will probably never know with a 100% certainty.
10/10 … After watching two seasons of this documentary TV Show, I think it is by far the best one I have ever seen. The host or main researcher Luis Elizondo, a former military counter-intelligence officer approaches this topic really serious and with a scientific mindset. He doesn’t go close to claiming it’s ”little gray men”, but know the phenomena is real and wants to find answers to what it could be.
6/10 … I love watching fighting scenes with Jackie Chan, unfortunately I don’t always like his movies when they have too much of the ”slipping-on-banana-peel” humor in them, that seems to be as common in Hong Kong kung-fu movies as dancing in Bollywood movies from India. But his more ”serious” movie like Rumble in the Bronx or Police Story are just awesome.
8/10 … Mr. Gaye had one of the most amazing voices in the history of soul music, but unfortunately with a tormented soul, that we can properly put on his fucked up father. A father that couldn’t give his son praise for his accomplishments, a cross-dressing pastor that gave his son shit for not making ”gods” music 😡, and ultimately killed him the day before Marvin would turn 45. May he rot in his christian hell forever and ever.
John Saxon, my all-time favourite ”not leading role” actor passed away on July 25 in pneumonia in Murfreesboro, Tennessee at the age of 83. The news really struck me hard since he has been with me since I watched ”Nightmare on Elm Street” for the first time. He’s extremely charismatic and I don’t know why […]
7,5/10 … The UK version is on my top 5 best/funniest sitcoms ever list, so I never watched this, the american version when it was first aired. And it took a while to shake of the ”let’s Americanize an already perfect show”. But when I forgot about the original, this is awesome. Especially the first 5 seasons.
The text down below is from Wikipedia, I’m just facinated by how the sociopath Stephanie Rasmussem responded during her interiogation. You just have to watch and listen to that clip. On February 24, 1986, the body of Sherri Rasmussen (born February 7, 1957) was found dead in the apartment she shared with her husband, John Ruetten, in Van […]
