    ★½

    Boil a Euro exploitation flick down to its bare essentials and you’ll end up with this flick. Copious amounts of full frontal female (and male) nudity? Check! Nazi motorcycle gang rape? Check! Armed revenge by a Spanish yuppie? Check! Something that almost passes for martial arts fighting? Check! Genital mutilation? Check! Automotive stunt work done on the cheap? Check! Elderly handicap murder? Check! As many sex scenes that can be crammed into a short running time? Check! English dubbing that makes the whole thing absurdly laughable? Check! Mileage may vary with this one but I did find it fun.

Even has a Hal Needham-choreographed stunt extravaganza as the cherry on top of this cinematic sundae! A hidden blast from the past!

But much time has passed since then so I figured I’d give BRIDE a reappraisal when I heard Jeffrey Combs was to be a guest on The…

    A sort of spiritual sequel to director Ben Wheatley’s A Field in England this time set in the modern day. With a pandemic still at large, a timid researcher (Joel Fry) heads off into the protected woodlands with a sturdy park guide (Ellora Torchia) in search for a former flame, another researcher who may have gone missing. Along the way they encounter some distress and get back on their feet thanks to Zach (Reece Shearsmith), a bohemian artist living illegally…
