    Lady Cocoa 1975

    And on the complete opposite side of my review for Candy Tangerine Man, Lady Cocoa, made by the same director, is boring, slow, uneventful, and the main character played by Lola Falana is one of the most shrill, annoying women I have ever seen as a lead in a movie. Thank goodness this didn't get its own separate release. Just watch the first feature and skip this one.

    I had never heard of this flick before, and probably never would have seen it had it not been for getting it as part of VS's "all bluray releases" package. So glad I did because I really enjoyed this. It is filled with stereotyped racist cops, brutal violence, packed with nudity (and quite nice too) outlandish clothes, and is filmed with style and realism absent from most of the Blaxploitation I am familiar with (more in tone with Blacula, then…

    A great original, modern horror movie that manages to nail metaphor and emotional social commentary while not being too intellectual. While taking place in modern day, the INCREDIBLE synth score and the suburban teenager plot made it feel like a lost Carpenter or Craven film from the '80's. Best blind purchase I have made in a long time.

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2012 2

    What I assumed was going to be a dime a dozen by the numbers slasher flick ended up being quite a surprise. Very competently shot, with likeable characters, great gore, and very very lovely ladies that don't mind getting naked in order to fulfill all the things a slasher flick needs. also near the ends a couple nice homages to Friday The 13th films. Felt like I was watching an 80's era flick, which is exactly what this sub-genre should feel like. It's currently on Netflix streaming in glorious HD in case you don't feel like picking up the bluray.
