Mostly interested in T.R.A.S.H. and sleaze™
Lover of all that is weird and unusual
I don't watch a lot of contemporary stuff
I love Lenzi adding the cult/Jonestown element to his cannibal movie. The se-tup here isn't as strong as the one in Cannibal Holocaust, but I liked it at least a bit better than Ferox. What I didn't like were all the animal deaths. They were treated in the most casual way. Most of them were used as mere throwaway scenes; so nonchalantly.
It did have some fun music and I loved seeing Janet Ågren in gold body paint.
Watched with Michelle, on a mini cannibal binge.
Un Tranquillo Posto di Campagna is Elio Petri's (Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion) masterful surreal take on an artist's descent into madness (quite possibly schizophrenia.) The movie stars on-again off-again couple Franco Nero and Vanessa Redgrave. It is psychedelic, sexy, tense and most importantly, very riveting.
An absolute classic.
My first Hubert Frank directed movie and without a doubt one of my new ´70s Euro trash favourites. I will go so far as to say that I haven't been this impressed with an exploitation movie since I watched Paul Grau's Mad Foxes last year. While they are very different movies, they both have a similar approach to sleaze. Frank is a tiny bit more artful about it though. There were definitely moments where I feel he was trying to…
I have now seen about a dozen of these Jawsploitation movies so I can confidentiality say that Alligator really is one of the best ones out there. It delivers on the alligator action while also adding enough little elements to make it more enjoyable.
It has an entertaining story, plenty of likeable characters and great practical effects.
Overall a top tier when-animals-attack flick!
Now this is more like it! My biggest complaint with the original was that it was too tame for a movie about genetically enhanced piranhas. This one definitely ups the ante. It has far more silliness, over-the-top mayhem (these bastards can fly now) and best of all.. boobies!
