Freaks   freaks cover1 84x120 full length movies Director: Tod Browning
Writer: Clarence Aaron ‘Tod’ Robbins
Release Year: 1932

“We’ll Make Her One of Us!” from the gibbering mouths of these weird creatures came this frenzied cry… no wonder she cringed in horror… this beautiful woman who dared toy with the love of one of them!

This week  we have for you midgets and freaks combined in a little lovestory/drama.

I’m not a reviewer, so I’ll make it short (for reviews you’ll have to look at the rest of the site). This great little movie is about a trapeze artist that marries a midget for his money, plots to kill the poor little person with her lover, and the bizarre things that happen afterwards. Oh, and pinheads ofcourse. Not a horror movie as such (unless you are horrified by dwarfs and limbless men), more a drama wherein the freaks are the good guys and the normal ones scum. As is the case every week, a must see.

And together, we’ll all freak out.

1970. The United States was at the height of the Vietnam War. The Ohio National Guard were sent to Kent State University after the ROTC building was burned down; opening fire on students protesting U.S. invasion of Cambodia. Four students are killed. A similar event happened at Jackson State University which claimed two lives. The Apollo program was abandoned. Charles Manson released his album “Lies” to finance his criminal defense. The Ford Pinto was introduced. Four California Highway Patrol officers were killed in one day…making 1970 the deadliest year in California law enforcement history. Monday Night Football premiered. And a movie was released to unsuspecting grindhouses and drive-ins that would change exploitation forever… I Drink Your Blood.

Germo-Latino tabsploitation

Ilsa, The Wicked Warden   Offscreen 2010 mini logo reviews horror drama Abbie Phillips (Tania Busselier) suspects her sister – lets call her Sophie, shall we? – is being mistreated in a mental hospital. When she looses all contact with Sophie, she comes up with a plan to have herself committed to the asylum by Dr. Arcos (Jess Franco), who on his terms also suspects foul play within the walls of the institute. That’s her way to try and find out what happened to her sister. With holding the friendly Dr. Arcos at gunpoint while explaining her idea, you can already suspect that she didn’t think things through properly, let alone this being one of the more clever ideas she ever came up with. A poor girl with a plan doomed to failure, as the place she so desperately wants to get into is run be Greta (that’s Ilsa, the She Wolf of the SS re-incarnated as the exact spitting image of Dyanne Thorne), a very nasty warden who’s only joy in life seems to be torturing women, throwing depraved sex & rape parties, playing vicious S&M games and a bit of that good old killing for pleasure too.
