I dig arty trash, trashy art, obscurities, classics and the not-so-classic. I hate fascists.

    The Todd Killings


    Decent early 70s true crimer that hews closely to the facts of the Charles Schmid "Pied Piper of Tucson" murders. The story has been updated 5 years to then present day 1970, so Schmid is now a hippie as opposed to a pancake makeup-ed greaser. Lyons is good in the lead even if he is a few years too old for the part. He nails the manipulative slug side of the character.

    I've been vibing with a lot of these…

  • Ogroff



    TBH I wasn't all that impressed with this during the front half-- I've seen shoddy no-budget, no-plot backyard gore before-- but once the zombies and the "love story" were introduced it's warped charm won me over. It also closes with a Howard Vernon cameo which helps.

    All Ladies Do It


    Absurdly horny live action cartoon about the joys of infidelity/cuckoldry and ass worship. Mostly a silly, sexy good time until a throwaway bit of ugly transphobia towards the end kinda let the air out of the balloon for me. I don't expect political correctness from Tinto Brass but it served no purpose, not even as a 'laugh line', and seemed at odds with the overall tone. The following scene-- a rave/orgy set to a hilariously awful cover of "Everybody Dance Now"-- almost won me back but alas the thrill was gone.

    Mari-Cookie and the Killer Tarantula


    Look, Jess Franco is an acquired taste and even within that small subculture of Francophiles 'Marie-Cookie and the Killer Tarantula' would itself be considered an acquired taste but, I have to say, this goofball piece of late 90s dandruff was exactly to *my* taste. Of course, that may mean I have *bad* taste but so be it.

    Part typical Franco soft core, part Spanish sex comedy, part tossed off "punk" pulp riff, part absurd kinky comic book, part women empowerment…
