The Vixens of Kung Fu (1975)

Black Cobra Woman (1976)

A while back, we took a look at Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (1977) and found it to be interesting enough.  So, let's check out another Joe D'Amato joint starring Laura Gemser and her real-life husband Gabriele Tinti - Black Cobra Woman (original title Eva Nera) from the previous year.

Killing American Style (1988)

I had so much fun with Amir Shervan's Young Rebels, I didn't waste any time getting to another movie in his trilogy (Samurai Cop is next on the list).  So, once again we're back to the land of muscle-bound guys with mullets, bad martial arts, acid-washed jeans, big-haired eighties chicks, lots of awful fight scenes, terrible synth-rock scores.... oh, and the walking jawline, Z'dar.

The Living Dead Girl (1982)

(Original title: La Morte Vivante) Jean Rollin movies always leave me frustrated, yet I always come back for more.  Like Jesus Franco films, there is always the promise of blood, boobs, and bush; plus lots of cool Euro-horror vibes.  A pretty compelling bait.

Rollin movies, specifically, are often an exercise in style over substance... like, way over substance. So, if the blood, boobs and bush are lacking, you're left with just incoherent artsy fluff and leaves you wondering why you tried another Rollin picture.  Yet, here we go again....

Goldilocks and the Three Bares (1963)

Before H.G. Lewis discovered he could cash in on gore, he was making nudie cuties - this one involving nudists, one of whom was his real-life wife.  Let's take a look..

She Did What He Wanted (1971)

She Did What He Wanted (1971) is an odd adult flick that came-and-went in 1971 - I can't even find a movie poster for it (if there ever was one).  It stars a VZ1 fave Sandy Dempsey - and if that's not enough to make it worth a watch, take note that the film also went by the title "Psychedelic Sex Freak".  Let's check it out...

Tigers in Lipstick (1979)

Letti Selvaggi (original title) is an Italian comedy anthology featuring eight distinct stories, each starring Sylvia Kristel, Ursula Andress, Laura Antonelli, and Monica Vitti. 

Young Rebels (1989)

From the Iranian director who brought you Samurai Cop comes this tale of revenge featuring: gun battles too-numerous-to-count, strippers, and Robert Z'Dar's chin.  Let's check it out...

The Photographer (1974)

Not so long ago we reviewed Double Exposure - an extremely odd and sleazy picture that seemed like a TV movie, but with added nudity and graphic violence. Well, who knew it was a remake?  Incredibly, The Photographer would be remade almost ten years later as Double Exposure - also starring Micheal Callan!  Also weird: Sylvester Stallone's oldest son, Sage, loved this movie so much he bought all the rights and negatives to perpetuity!  Let's see what all the hubbub is about that would inspire an 80s remake and admiration from a Stallone...

Screwballs (1983)

Screwballs is the perfect early eighties teen comedy. It has all the necessary elements : an imbecilic plot, tons of horny teenagers, and loads of gratuitous T & A.

I say "early" eighties because around 1985 John Hughes wiped the slate clean and movies like H.O.T.S., Porky’s and Hardbodies went bye-bye (and wouldn’t be revived again until American Pie). Screwballs stands perched at that magic moment when movies like this were in every theater. However, unlike its cousins Risky Business, Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Last American Virgin, this one had no serious elements whatsoever.

Death Kiss (1976)

Death Kiss - AKA The Rape Killer and The Wife Killer - original title: Eglima sto Kavouri
A Greek foray into the Giallo universe - let's see how they work with the genre...

Schulmädchen-Report 7 (1974)

So far, we've covered only part four in this series [Schulmädchen-Report 4 (1972)], so it's high time we look at another of these saucy anthologies from Germany.  Part seven was given the rather unfortunate title "Teenage Playmates" for its US release.  Let's see how the stories stack up from this round of German juvenile delinquents...

The Dirty Mind of Young Sally (1973)

From Bethel Buckalew, the genius behind The Pigkeeper's Daughter and Tobacco Roody, comes "radio's answer to Fanny Hill" starring Colleen Brennan (here under the name Sharon Kelly) who you'll remember from Alice Goodbody and Sassy Sue.

Dungeon of Desire (1994)

With a title like Dungeon of Desire, you might think this is going to be a porno.  Surprisingly, this is a campy time travel film.  Sure, it has boobs aplenty, but it's not quite the run-of-the-mill flick you expect it to be.

Delirium (1972)

Delirio Caldo (1972) starring Rita Calderoni as the devoted wife of a serial killer, who we've grown to love through The Reincarnation of Isabel and Nude for Satan); an Italian giallo that is the opposite of a subtle slow burn.

Isabella, Duchess of the Devils (1969)

Based on the popular fumetti, Isabella, Duchessa Dei Diavoli (1969) delivers an adventure story set in 17th century France, featuring topless swashbuckling, gypsy love, and racist dinner games.  Enjoy.

Commuter Husbands (1974)

A Britsploitation flick featuring Gabrielle Drake as the storyteller of this anthology of six tales of "the battle of the sexes".

Takin' It All Off (1987)

This is the sequel to Takin' It Off from 1985; a playful script requiring only a single digit IQ, and wall-to-wall nudity.  Sounds like this may be right up our alley...

Vampire Cop (1990)

I'm pretty confident that the only people watching this movie were intrigued by the title; beyond that, there's not much too see here, folks.
