MANIA (1974)-IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBS, LETTERBOXED PRINT. For decades this Renato Polselli sex and horror tale was thought to be lost. It turned up recently but in poor quality, cut and in Italian only. Finally, here's an uncut version (for extra minutes of sex and violence, widescreen, terrific quality and subtitled! Renato Polselli (under his Ralph Brown moniker) takes a drive-the-widow-crazy plot and turns out this crackpot cinema classic.  Even with subtitles some of this still makes no sense, but it all works wonderfully, and in Polselli's hands even continuity errors seem natural, like the haunted woman driving during the day while it's pitch-black in her car making it look like she's driving around town in her own personal hell.  Polselli's bizarro world is one where cripples run riot in wheelchairs, where naked catfights and whippings can and do break out at anytime, where the women wear nightshirts day or night and the dead are resplendent in windbreaker and playtex dishwashing gloves.  Brad Euston, mugging like he's out to take home the Mickey Hargitay award for outstanding overacting in a film, takes acting honors in the dual role as the dead scientist/crippled brother.

GIROLIMONI: THE MONSTER OF ROME (1972)-IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBS, LETTERBOXED PRINT. Nino Manfredi, Gabriele Lavia, Guido Leontini. Based on true events, Girolimoni The Monster of Rome is another one of Damiano Damiani’s films which has sadly faded into relative obscurity. The first victim, four-year-old Emma Giacomini, was kidnapped while playing in a public park on the 31st of March 1924. She was found later that same evening in the Monte Mario area of Rome, bruised and beaten, but still alive. Newspaper headlines cried out for the arrest of the maniac responsible triggering fascist-dictator-on-the-ascent Benito Mussolini to become personally involved. Fearing his government would be seen as weak, ineffective, and unable to protect the public he set up a special task force to catch the monster, headed by chief-of-police Arturo Bocchini. His brief was simple; catch the monster as soon as possible. The investigation, on the other hand, was anything but simple. Although numerous eye-witnesses came forward describing a tall man, around 50, well dressed, and with a mustache the police would hit one dead-end after another. The monster left few clues; scraps of pages torn from an English language brochure for religious articles and the handkerchiefs he used to strangle his poor young victims.

ORLAK THE HELL OF FRANKENSTEIN (1961)-IN SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBS. A SPECTACULAR MEXICAN B&W HORROR FILM WITH A GREAT MONSTER!! Director: Rafael Baledón, Stars: Armando Calvo, Rosa de Castilla, Irma Dorantes. Criminal Jaime Rojas is released from jail and he helps Dr. Frankenstein to escape and continue his experiments to create life. When the scientist succeeds and creates Orlak, a remote-controlled creature with Rojas' face, the crook uses Orlak against his treacherous partners in crime and the woman that betrayed him. Working in a chiaroscuro landscape and with not much funding, Baledon cleverly reverted at appropriate times to the minimalist approach of certain German filmmakers of the silent era, not in duplicating expressionistic poses and design, but in evoking an expressionistic sense of positioning and drama; at other times, he created a visual delight, part expressionistic, part surrealistic, as when filming about a wedge shaped building whose center juts toward the audience in the middle of the screen. Sets still standing from the Nostradamus series were used, and enough craftsmanship is in evidence to impart a moderate richness of production.

eyes without a face2_edited.jpg

EYES WITHOUT A FACE (1991)- Director: Bruno Mattei (as Herik Montgomery), Stars: Monica Sellers, Gabriele Gori, Emy Valentino. This rare film by Italian sleaze director Bruno Mattei is not - as the English title "Eyes Without a Face" suggests - a remake of Georges Franju's all time horror classic "Les Yeux Sans Visage" (which, as every genre buff should know, inspired Jess Franco's "Les Prédateurs de la Nuit" in 1988, one of Franco's best). "Gli Occhi Dentro" is a thriller in best Giallo tradition and often reminds of the typical genre outings of the 1970s. And this is quite a surprise considering that Bruno Mattei is known for trashy horror and exploitation films, but hasn't made a Giallo before this one. A serial killer murders baby sitters and plugs their eyes out. The killings resemble crimes from the latest issue of a successful comic book series called "Doctor Dark" about a schizophrenic who is a renowned professor by day and a maniac killer at night. The artist of the comic series is a young woman, and obviously the killer tries to make her suffer for his crimes: she starts finding the plugged out eyes of the victims at her home. After half an hour of the film, it seems that the maniac is caught. But it doesn't take much time to find out that the man apprehended is not the real killer.

GAMMA (1975)-IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBS. Gamma is a television drama, a giallo with a sci-fi background, in 4 episodes, aired for the first time by RAI in 1975, directed by Salvatore Nocita on a subject by Professor Fabrizio Trecca. Set in France in an unspecified future, the drama tells the story of a brain transplant on an injured young race car driver, and its ethical implications. The death penalty is essential to the plot and hence the French setting, although the last execution will take place only two years later, to be totally abolished in 1981. The guillotine, although modernized, retains the typical structure and includes the tradition of the last cigarette. As an alternative to cognac taken on an empty stomach it is injected a drug to inhibit the will. The main element of the work is the debate on the progress achieved by medicine, which intervenes radically on a human being, and the danger of the spread of drugs ever more sneaky, here in the form of a common cigarette, whose consumer becomes dependent on both the drug and the drug dealer. The media then tended to elect the so-called "drugged cigarette" as the sole means of consumption, concealing the more brutal syringe. A final frame bears a caption that reveals the identity of the donor, that of "a modest employee died of pneumonia", making ponder on the fact that although it is possible to transplant a human brain, you can still die from common diseases.COMES ON 2 DVDS FOR $15

MYSTERE (1983)-UNCUT LETTERBOXED PRINT. Assassins are after a prostitute who has come into possession of a cigarette lighter that, unbeknownst to her, contains the negatives that show a politician's assassination.  A delightfully playful giallo starring the beautiful Carole Bouquet as Mystere,a high class call girl who becomes the target for a couple of assassins. On its initial release Mystere seemed rather twee,especially when compared to Argento's Tenebrae, but the years have been very kind to this excellent little film. John Steiner as the ruthless hit man, Ivanov, gives one of his best performances of the eighties. Looking slick and menacing as the leather suited killer, Steiner glides through his scenes with ease and flair. Peter Berling turns up as a sleazy old man, and Janet Agren is nice as Mystere's friend. A great showcase for Bouquet's undeniable beauty, director Carlo Vanzina captures the actress at her most alluring. Splendid stuff with a great score by Armando Trovaioli.

secret of dr orloff.jpg

SECRETS OF DR ORLOFF (1964)-FIRST TIME UNCUT AND ENGLISH DUBBED, LETTERBOXED PRINT. One of Jesus Franco better horror films , it stars Cast: Hugo Blanco, Agnès Spaak, Perla Cristal. A mad scientist creates a hideous monster to carry out his murderous plans. The picture is rife with carefully-executed camera angles and atmospherics, something that would become anathema to Franco's slash-and-burn methods of the 80s. The best scenes are reminiscent of (dare I say) Lewton and Franju. It builds up a strong pathos for the title character, thanks to a subtle, wordless portrayal that evokes Cesar in 'Cabinet of Dr Caligari' and Christiane in 'Eyes without a Face' (such homages were a Franco specialty). There is a particularly poignant sequence in which the zombie stumbles about near his own tombstone in a bleak, wintry cemetery. No matter what depths Franco's movies plunged to, they always offered a few wonderfully oddball cabaret scenes in smoky jazz or rock bars, and this is no exception. One singer performs a wacky, rhythmic Latin ditty that must have sparked the imagination of the members of the retro band 'Les Rita Mitsouko'. (These cabaret scenes were a welcome staple of the Euro-thriller genre of the 60s, also perking up the krimi series, several of the campier works of the Italian Gothic revival, and especially the outlaw melodramas of Jose Benazeraf.)

DEFEKT (1977)-IN HUNGARIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBS. Gedeon is a young, ambitious detective. Three women have disappeared and he strongly believes that there’s a direct connection between them. All three of them were driving alone and disappeared in the same region. After a lengthy discussion, Gedeon gets the permission from his boss to go searching with his colleague in that area. Meanwhile, the next possible victim gets a blowout on the same road in the woods. Because of the night, the rain and her smashed car she looks for a safe, dry place. She finds a house in the middle of the woods where a man takes her in. To start with, the man seems nice but later he attacks her unexpectedly… And even the house holds more surprises to boot… This superbly realized and darkly atmospheric thriller from Hungary is an absolute pip! While 'Defekt' initially appears to take considerable liberties with the ubiquitous cinematic tropes provided by Robert Bloch's hugely influential 'Psycho'; the terse narrative nonetheless soon settles into a truly idiosyncratic, sparely-written, and decidedly taciturn, noirish thriller that makes excellent use of its slender running running time (67 mins approx) and equally meager locale. The creative photography and grimy art direction is uniformly excellent, and the supremely dark jazzoid score by Gyorgy Vukan is an absolute Lalo Schifrin-style delight! I found 'Defekt' to be hugely entertaining, and I sincerely hope many other similarly broad-minded, treasure-seeking euro-cult cinephiles will enjoy this minor gem of Hungarian, jazz-fuelled terror!

This downbeat Greek exploitation thriller directed and co-written by Chrissostomos Liambos concerns a psychotic killer (Kostas Gouzgounis) who was traumatized into impotence and madness by a sadistic female S.S. officer in his youth. Now he lives in a cave, where he lures women into depravity and death. The script owes more than a little to the Italian gialli then flooding the European marketplace, and makes a brisk wallow in the cinematic gutter, resulting in pretty Aleka Yeorgiou being used as bait to trap the killer into revealing himself. Regardless of its pacing problems, sleaze fans should find enough to recommend it, although general audiences will be offended. Kostas Politidis co-stars with Kostas Stefanakis and Anda Vartholomeou. Although the movie offers an almost endless stream of nudity, violence and general sleaziness, it gets rather timid when it comes to the actual murders which are hardly there. Most of the characters are centered around a bar running a prostitution ring, like the tough boss, his sleazy thugs, Vetta, the boss' girlfriend who also provides him with some fresh meat, Ersi, who insists she's not a hooker, and even an aspiring young student of medicine. Among the regulars is an industrialist, Mister Ivanov (Kostas Gousgounis - hard to buy in such a role) who frequently demands new girls in his mansion.

HYENA OF LONDON (1964)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Director: Gino Mangini, Stars: Bernard Price, Diana Martín, Tony Kendall. A serial killer called "The Hyena" is finally caught and eventually hanged. However, his body disappears before it can be buried, and soon thereafter dead bodies start turning up in a small village. The Italians made many excellent and highly atmospheric Gothic thrillers during the 1960s. "Hyena of London" was produced in 1964, at the peak of the genre's popularity. Like the films of Bava, etc., it benefits from historic European locations, authentic costumes, fine manners and moody scoring. Though marketed as a thriller most of the film is straight drama, with the macabre scenes confined to the film's beginning and end. Watching this made me recall "Terror Creatures from the Grave," which originally was the bottom half of a 1965 double feature with "Bloody Pit of Horror." It had much of the same film noir ambiance and class. "Hyena of London" is definitely not for everyone, but a good bet for fans of '60s Euro-thrillers or Tony Kendall.
