  • Sex Of The Devil

    Sex Of The Devil 1971

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Apr, 2015

    The only person, so far to have reviewed this movie on IMDb does a pretty good job summing up the slight story and certainly helped me out! However I'm not sure he quite does justice to just what a heady brew this is. Always stunning to look at, style over substance all the way and the girls can't wear much in the way of clothes for very long. The music, yes completely unoriginal but irresistible nevertheless, thank you Mr. Cipriani…

  • Un Assassin Qui Passe

    Un Assassin Qui Passe 1981

    ★★★★½ Watched 18 Apr, 2015

    I nearly didn't watch this after reading the very few IMDb reviews which seemed to suggest the film was dull, uninteresting and suitable for twelve year olds.

    This is a profound and engrossing film. Peter Strickland is clearly less a fan of cinema than a fanatic for film and there is a difference. He believes that film does not depict reality but is a reproduction of reality and therein lies his fascination. He is excited by this process and through his films similarly excites us. In this film, ostensibly about a couple of ladies living out a BDSM relationship in a rambling old mansion, his filmic inspiration…

    Strip Nude for Your Killer 1975

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Feb, 2013 1

    I didn’t think much of this when I first saw it and don’t think much of it now. It’s terrible really because the girls are great and it looks good most of the time with plenty of sexy kills. The title, salacious though it is, is pretty accurate, but the predictable tale plods along and in the end produces a killer we have not only not seen but did not know existed! Distortion on the soundtrack doesn’t help this one.…
