Despite the title, it’s not an all-black porno.

Sir Charles Walker (David Warbeck) goes undercover on the island plantation of Lady Susan Walker (Anouska Hempel) to find his missing brother Jonathan (David Prowse). He quickly finds the plantation is a horrible place, ruled with an iron fist by Lady Walker through her men: the extremely racist – and very white – overseer Joxer Tierney (Percy Herbert) and the cultured, homosexual, strict military commander – who’s very black – Capt. Raymond Daladier (Bernard Boston). The situation is ripe for rebellion, and this nice young man might well be the catalyst that makes it all happen….

If only every slasher film had a stone mill saw at its disposal.

A boarding school is plagued by grisly murders. Cult director Jess Franco, with his inimitable ways of poor or artistic taste – you be the judge of that – gives us his take on the late 70′s/early 80′s whodunit slasher format.

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.

Friday, February 5th, 2010 by Vomitron -

We’ve kindly been brought to the attention of a new independent film in the final stages of post-production, named Otis ‘n’ Dwayne.

Otis n Dwayne looks trashy, nasty & tasty   OnD bannerCR news

The synopsis reads a little like this:

“Two androgynous creatures embark on a psychotronic journey of self-discovery in a cruel, unusual and mostly male world. This comedy about two gay androids abandoned in a New Jersey suburb inhabited by God, the devil, and other lowlifes is a f*cked up movie for f*cked up times.”

The Sinful Dwarf   sinful dwarf severin 84x120 reviews horror drama Writer: Vidal Raski
Director: Harlan Asquith & William Mayo
Release year: 1973
Danish title: Dvaergen

Great evil can sometimes come in very small packages….

I have waited quite a while to see this film. I do not exactly know why I wanted to see it so badly, considering I have a great distaste and fear towards dwarves, little people, midgets….whatever the hell they are called. I guess for someone who is well over 6 feet tall, it makes sense that my fears are of things that are tiny.
