Star Crash is pretty much the worst of these three. So, you might actually enjoy it!

I've seen quite a bit of it before, but it is a movie that sounds more enjoyable on paper than it actually is. For me anyway.

I saw THE DEAD ARE ALIVE in a theater and remember liking it. NIGHT CHILD is boring but STARCRASH is awesome.

today i decided to splash out a bit and got me a couple of euro trash flicks (and 1 renowned giallo) for maybe a bit too much money

Don't Torture A Duckling (new Shameless version)
Hands Of Steel
Blast Fighter (both AWE releases)
Nightmare Beach (Italian import)

here's hoping they will be worth my precious cents!

Depends on what you paid. I know that the Shameless DVDs (at least the older ones) are cheap and Nightmare Beach can be had new for about 7.
The other two are a bit higher I guess.
Still, great choices.

Last weekend I ordered:


http://www.fabpress.com/vsearch.php?CO=FAB079


http://www.fabpress.com/vsearch.php?CO=FAB106


I ordered the paperback. I really wanted the hardback, but that one's just too expensive (Exclusively at FABPress @ € 52 / $ 70 inc.)

Also ordered the Jethro Tull to-fer Heavy Horses/ Songs from the Wood and it seems like I'm not finished yet!!

did you order those books from Amazon? because they are quite cheap (about 21 for Any Gun Can Play)

the book about Luciano Rossi is very nice, very interesting to read too!

Yeah, Amazon was the cheapest. Amazon.co.uk has it for about € 21, but I didn't qualify for free shipping (shipping = € 7) , so I went with Amazon.com which cost me € 25 in totla
Just had confirmation my order shipped! YAY!

I had a coupon for a different store where I bought the Luciano book and the Tull CD.

Righto, it's "that time of the year" again!

Being on tight budgets all the time, the only way for me to go on a shopping spree is after I have my birthday

Here's the stuff I have chosen to be in my collection this year:

El Ultima Fin de Semana (Norber Films)
Assassination (01/ IIF)
Das Syndicat
Plot of Fear (Raro USA)
Night of the Devils (Raro USA)
Sweet Body of Deborah (Njuta??)
Massacre Time (Wild East)

And I will add some music in the next few weeks I'm sure!

Last weekend I attended a screening of a double bill of Argento's THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE and the later Giallo THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH.Both were 35mm prints ,in pretty good condition,but bearing the rerelease titles,BIRD was THE PHANTOM OF TERROR (from a 1982 rerelease from Grindhouse exhibiter 21st Century,and VICE was titled THE NEXT VICTIM).The theater (The Colony Theater in Raleigh N.C.) was packed,it was a stormy night,perfect for a horror double header !

I've seen BIRD several times,but never with a theater audience.It got a GREAT reaction,people really got into it,not just the scares but the laughs,Argento's odd humour really worked.
I had never seen WARDH before.None of the characters are particularly likeable and it's really about rather smarmy people.Oddly this doesn't really hurt it ! It's an entertaining pic,picks up speed in the last quarter and gets fairly clever,and the stalk and slash scenes are effective.Again,a seedy outing about sexual deviance,but strangely entertaining.Some of the dialogue is unintentionally funny but that actually seemed to play well with the audience too !

The Colony regularly screens old cult films,I would recommend it to anyone who lives in the area.

Out of curiosity,anyone know which version of VICE is the best available on DVD ?

The Shameless DVD is the only English friendly DVD available.
I have the now OOP NoShame disc. It's a bit soft and blurry in motion. The Shameless is fine. Might pick that up someday.

My list changed a bit (and keeps changing).
Will post what I've bought in a couple of weeks.
I'll try to include that new German release of Lenzi's Cynic/ Rat/ Fist as well..

"Massacre Time" is already on its way. Didn't want to wait too long because these Wild East DVDs go OOP very quickly.
