The special edition Paul Naschy DVD's will start coming out in the Spring of 2007! Here's a look at the cover art for the first 2 releases. (not a fan of photoshopped art, but these are way better than the previous covers they had. Actually, these will be reversible covers so you can choose which one you like best)

Been awhile since I've posted here! Sorry for the lack of updates, everybody. Just been pretty busy with all sorts of stuff and haven't had the time to chat about stuff.

I was checking out Fangoria's news page (and totally ignoring all the stupid Halloween remake updates, ugh!) and spotted this cool tidbit of info. NIGHT OF THE COMET coming to DVD! Cool! I always liked this fun, cheesy 80's flick. It was always on cable TV back in the day and I haven't seen it in a really long time. I'll definitely be picking this up.

Read about the DVD release here.

Review by Patrick from Repulsive Cinema!

After the harrowing experiences on Blood Island, Dr. Bill Foster is about to return to USA by boat. He is certain that the problems on the island are solved now, but he wishes he could have seen more of the island. Suddenly a green blooded fiend from the island comes forth from its hiding place and starts attacking the crew of the boat, wreaking havoc on board. Dr. Foster jumps into the fight, as he and the rest of the crew tries to kill of the ghoul, but the beast is to strong, and in the midst of the fighting a barrel of leaking gasoline hits an open flame and the boat is blown to bits. The creature makes it back onto the shores of Blood Island, and Dr. Foster is rescued at sea and taken back to the mainland. The first thing he does when he is back is organizing a new expedition to the infamous island, and this time a beautiful and nosey reporter, Myra Russell, has taken the liberty of joining him on his journey, in order to find a story for her paper. When they arrive at the island, Dr. Foster and Miss. Russell are greeted in the usual, cold manner of the terrified village, and they quickly learn that the green blooded monsters are back to mutilate the villagers. The problems starts almost immediately as Miss Russell are attacked in their cabin at night by one of the green blooded ghouls that lurk around on the island. The next day, Dr. Foster is taken to the ruins of the mad doctor's laboratory and hideout, to try to find out who is behind the problems on the island this time. After searching through the ruins at night he finds a secret passage that leads a way through underground caves in the Jungle, but as soon as he is about to share his discovery with the rest of his team and the villagers, Miss Russell is kidnapped by the green blooded men. Dr. Foster and his gang of helpers from the village sets out to find her and travels through the secret passage, where they see Miss Russell as a prisoner of no other than Razak, the Mad Doctor's trusted henchman. When Dr. Foster and a young woman fro the tribe sets out to rescue Myra, they discover that the good old Mad Doctor Lorca is alive and well and cooking up his most diabolical, chlorophyll infested plan ever! Can Dr. Foster and his team stop the Dr. Lorca and save Myra before it is too late?

Beast of Blood is the third and finale entry in the Blood Island series and this time Romero delivers a climax worthy of the final film in this infamous film series. It features the old faces of John Ashley, again in his role as Dr. Foster and good old Bruno Punzalan as the brutish henchman Razak. The plot in this film is basically the same as in the previous film, but this time there is more action, a bit more gore and even cooler cheesy special effects. The acting is more of the same as in the previous two films and holds up quite nicely for an old exploitation film like this, John Ashley is as always good in his part as the inquisitive doctor. The soundtrack is (again) like in the other films very distinctive and works very well with the action in the film. This final feature in the Blood Island series provides just what you want from the climax to our escapades in the jungles of the island, gore, sleaze and loads of explosive action. Action hungry exploitation freaks will certainly get a kick out of watching this film, and of course this is a mandatory flick for those who loved the first two films in the series!

Trash film heaven!

Some flicks I've watched lately...

JUNIOR (1984)

This is one sleazy, retarded, fun MESS of a film! Made in Canada, it's a bad mixture of I Spit On Your Grave, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and....uh, who am I's NOTHING like those movies, it's just mindless violence and CHEESE! All you need to know is...there's tons of nudity and bare boobs, lots of cursing and obscene language, lots of violence and death, and really BAD acting! What else do you need to know? It's not on DVD but try to find a copy anyway you can! It's totally worth seeing for trash film fans.

RAW FORCE (1982)

Oh wow, I've wanted to see this film for years and I'm so glad I finally got to. Imagine an American film company trying to do a Hong Kong style action/exploitation flick and failing miserably! Yep! Lots of bad kung-fu fighting scenes, shitty acting, cheesy "cannibal" monks, weak sword fights, and best of all tons of boobs and nudity! It even has a drunken, fat, old Cameron Mitchell as a grumpy sea captain as well as a nude(once again!) Camille Keaton from I Spit On Your Grave in a totally pointless but appreciated scene!
It's faced paced and never gets boring, but boy is it STUPID! You might hate yourself after watching it but you'll enjoy the ride. Again, this isn't on DVD but worth tracking down. The poster art is awesome and cracks me up!

THE BRAIN (1988)

I haven't watched this movie since I was a kid in 1989. I first saw it on cable TV back when Cinemax used to show cool, cheesy horror stuff like Twice Dead, Hell High, and Night of the Demons! The Brain fucking rules and has one of the coolest looking creatures ever. A giant killer, human-eating brain with huge teeth...what's not to love here? I won't get into the story...just the facts: it's gory as fuck, has some topless scenes(always a must), is fast paced, and is a great example of oldschool FX scenes always being better than shitty fucking CGI crap that ruins 99% of today's "horror" movies. This movie NEEDS a special edition DVD release badly from Anchor Bay or Shriek Show. A must see and a personal favorite!


A cheesy attempt at trying to do a RE-ANIMATOR style horror/gore film but totally failing, of course! Still, this has some decent gore scenes and other fun shit. It's about an aging woman wanting her youth back and using this retarded, balding doctor to provide it for her by using brain matter from rats....or something like that? Eventually it stops working and the woman turns into this ugly (and I do mean UGLY) looking freak and turns to killing humans and sucking their brain matter to help get young again. It actually sounds better than it really is, but...I still enjoyed it and it has that really cool, dated late 80's "charm" that I always like. The lead actress is lame and so is the guy playing the doctor, one of the most annoying and irritating charcaters ever. This is only for die-hard gore fans who crave cheese!

Also, I recently just ordered 2 violent Asian category 3 flicks chock full of sex and violence! I'll report back when I get them. Category 3 films are the best and most violent ever. Check out this cool new myspace group that Jose(Psycho Sleaze comics) started.
