GIALLO IN VENICE blu-ray released by Scorpion Releasing!


Ordered! Didn't even know this was released on Blu-Ray.  The screen caps look great.  I can finally ditch my grubby looking rip from a long time ago.

was also really nice to see some confident shots of william petersen's penis during one of the sex scenes.

Just reserved a copy. Friedkin is great but that sells it.

To Live and Die in LA is an awesome movie, in spite of and because of it's absolutely ludicrousness. It's all of the cop movie tropes set to maximum but with a totally ruthless vibe. a very pessimistic brother to Miami Vice. And Wang Chung's soundtrack is fucking perfect. pretty sure you can get a contact cocaine high just from watching it.

2001: A Space Odyssey in IMAX
Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3D

Both incredible to see in big screen variations.

such a treat. i never thought i'd get to see william petersen's penis. i was pretty sure we'd get to see willem dafoe's dick too because he gets it out a lot in other movies, but no dice.

i watched this last night. what can i say that hasn't already been said? maybe the greatest achievement in american film

just watched Let The Corpses Tan, the new one from Cattet & Forzani. if you like their other stuff (Amer, Strange Color of your Body's Tears) you'll like this. if you don't, you won't. although i think it's their best yet. good score too, reminded me of the amazing morricone score for Who Saw Her Die?

I went to see this in theaters in Philly last year and it got cancelled due to "technical difficulties". they had no better explanation than that. It was extremely disappointing, especially as I got to see Amer in theaters which was that much better for it.  I'll have to grab the Bluray soon.

FREEWAY- the best part is a close-up of a skinny blonde actress in really tight, short cut-off shorts & in a leg cast. Other than that, it's a black comedy about a freeway killer & white trash teenager whose voice will make your ears hurt.

RAZORBACK- "There's just something about blasting the shit out of a razorback that brightens up my day." Classic Aussie '80s horror; the new blu-ray looks great especially during the darker scenes in the pet food factory & when the razorback attacks the car.

THE WHISTLEBLOWER- UN peacekeepers in Bosnia lending a helping hand to the local sex traffickers. There are a  couple of grim scenes of violence including a rape-as-warning in a dank basement, on a table, with a piece of pipe.

first of all tonight I'm seeing a screening of Satoshi Kon's Perfect Blue in Japanese and I couldn't be more excited. at this point I've seen almost all of my favorite movies screened in proper theaters at one point or another, and it's hard to beat the experience.

let's see if i can give a quick recap of movies watched in the past month...

Hellraiser: Inferno (2000) - the 5th Hellraiser and a step in a weird new direction. it attempts a neo-noir style with a corrupt cop anti-hero and a lot less pinhead and a bigger focus on weird hellish surrealism. what's a dream, what's hell, is the main character dead or not. etc etc. it reminded me a lot of the video game Max Payne (the first one). I actually really enjoyed it in all of its shitty glory, my buddy thought it was dumb.

So Sweet, So Dead aka The Slasher! aka Penetration (1972) - after all the recommendations on this board I picked this one up from Code Red. Definitely a stripped down approach to the Giallo film, dispensing of any unnecessary artistic touches or weird bits. While I definitely enjoyed it, and it's to the point nature, I couldn't help but wish the gore/effects budget was a little better. the vibe is right but it lacks punch for my taste. also I guessed the killer immediately. but there's a lot of tits and ass and some good sequences so I'll revisit it again.

Milano Calibro 9 (1972) - this was fucking great! i know Giallo much better than Poliziotteschi, but I knew this one was supposed to be pretty legendary and I can see why. It's my understanding Tarantino praises this one, well I can definitely see some influence on his earlier work. Gastone Moschin as Ugo absolutely kills it, Barbara Bouchet is fucking great as always and pretty much all of the supporting characters are memorable. And the ending is A+!  two movies it brought to mind for different reasons were the utter-classic Le Samouraï and the underrated The Friends of Eddie Coyle.

Don’t Torture a Duckling (1972) – one of the first Giallo I ever saw and still one of the best, even if it’s not a traditional Giallo.

Alien (1979) & Die Hard (1988) – made my girlfriend sit down and watch these two, which she somehow got through life without seeing. These movies were essential to my childhood, having watched both multiple times before I was ten. Obviously very different movies but both so goddamn great.

Trip With Teacher (1975) – I was hoping for more from this exploitation flick. Not enough exploitation, just a shitload of waiting for things to happen. Not the worst way to spend an hour and a half but not riveting either.

Splatter: Naked Blood (1996) – I’ve had this one on my shelf for years. I knew about some of the gore to expect, but this was ten shades weirder than I could’ve imagined. An extremely Japanese film on every level. And the gore, while pretty limited, was a little stomach churning for me. It honestly rustled my jimmies. Definitely a movie I’ll have to watch again and recommended for those who enjoy body horror and weird shit in the style of Tetsuo The Iron Man, Videodrome and Audition.
