  • Girl Walk: All Day

    Girl Walk: All Day

    ★★★★½

    Wikipedia’s description of a “feature-length dance music video” really doesn’t do this film justice. Funded through Kickstarter, Girl Walk//All Day is a dance accompaniment to mash-up artist <a href= en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girl_Talk_%28musician%29>Girl Talk's album All Day (which can be downloaded for free here). The film can be watched online for free as well right here, and to be honest I doubt I would have bothered with it had it not been so readily available. 75 minutes of non-stop dance doesn't exactly strike…

    Blackenstein

    ★½

    The best thing that can be said about this dull film is that it has the second best punny Blaxploitation Horror title behind the excellent Blacula (1972).

    ★★★★

    Should’ve been called “Live Like a Homicidal Renegade-Cop, Treat Women Like Shit, Drive a Motorcycle Like a Fucking Maniac.”

    Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man is a great Poliziotteschi thriller from the director of the infamous Cannibal Holocaust and The House on the Edge of the Park. While his contribution to the genre is lacking in plot, it makes up for it with plenty of stylish and violent action set-pieces.

    Marc Porel (Don’t Torture a Duckling) and Ray…

  • The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue

    The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue

    ★★★★½

    Spanish/Italian zombie horror, also known as Don't Open the Window and Let Sleeping Corpses Lie. Although if you search for "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie" here on Letterboxd White Zombie (2008) comes up. No idea what that film's about.
    In spite of the crap title and rubbish (and spoilery!) cover, The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue is a real treat for 70's horror fans.
    The film is set in England, although unfortunately you'll still have to put up with poorly dubbed…
