Well it's not getting a cinema release in Australia until September and I've got a front projection setup at home, so purchasing the R2 DVD was no-brainer for me. Great movie too, my favourite so far this year. I haven't touched the extras on the disc yet, but it does look to be a good package. Whic...

Originally posted by Griff [Mola] Sounds great - so what's the problem? The movie itself is cut. What a cunt. What an absolute cunt.

I haven't had the chance to watch the new Last House DVD yet, but it would be pretty difficult for any film over 30 years old to have the same impact today for us horror fans. But I bet your average viewer would still be freaked out by it. I mean, I know people who think that shit like SCREAM 2 is t...

Um...OK, so it ain't such a hot movie. Many thanks. I'm not a Lenzi completist by any means and I've already got my eye on a long list of other stuff due this year anyway. I think Lenzi's got something like 60 films under his belt and word of mouth would indicate he's done more than his fair share o...

Hitcher In The Dark

This film by good old Umberto Lenzi is just one of many titles of interest scheduled to hit DVD this year. I haven't read much about it over the years but it sounds like quite a sleazy rip-off of THE HITCHER. Anyone seen it and recommend I put away some of my hard-earned for it?

Yes, the MPAA had problems with FRANKENHOOKER but I can't say for sure exactly what was cut. I think they had issues with the scenes showing people enjoying drug use but they basically just didn't get the joke. The version released down under is fully uncut and rated M. Maybe Frank had a fan in the ...

You'd have to expect Frankie would have several hundred twisted ideas for films given the length of time he's been absent from the director's chair. I am certainly looking forward to this one. I wonder what sort of budget and cast he'll get? Now if someone were to tell me there's a special edition o...

Can you tell me which book includes the 'Cadillac' short story? Joe's website lists all the books he's done but doesn't detail which short stories appear in the compilations.
