International & Cult Film Reviews

Raquel Welch Furkini

Tired of the stale, CGI infused, constantly rebooted Hollywood drivel? Tired of overpaid actors and actresses complaining about their multi-million dollar salaries? Tired of films constantly pushing a onesided policital and/or social agenda? Welcome to the world of cult cinema, where the budgets were lower than the craft services cost on a film today, where the actors actually worked hard and got paid very little, and where the stories were actually somewhat original. We were Hollywood blockbuster lemmings too once, then we discovered a whole new world of cinema and we haven't looked back since! Join us in cutting the Hollywood cord, and enjoy a world of film that's pre PC and SJW infected. Welcome to our International & Cult Film blog, here we will feature our thoughts on a wide variety of films with a focus on those from the 1950's-1980's from all around the world.

Check out our Actress Spotlight series, which will be a mini series within this blog that will highlight and maybe introduce you to many of the actresses of European cult films. If you're a Barbara Bouchet fan, we have an entire separate blog series dedicated just to her, you can check that out HERE! This blog is just kicking off so check back often and have your eyes opened to a whole new world!

Fright Night (1985) My Next Door Neighbor Is A Blood Sucking Creep! June 16, 2024 08:00

The film's relatable simplicity and consistently gripping plot allow it to stand out among other horror films of its time. It skillfully maintains an air of mystery and tension without relying on cliches, while still incorporating moments of humor to prevent it from becoming too dark.


Waxwork (1988) Wax On, Wax Off June 2, 2024 08:00

Waxwork successfully captures the essence of 1980's supernatural and horror films, transporting viewers into other worlds of cinema horror history. But does it melt before the plot of the film has the appropriate time to cure?


Speed Review: Fascination (1979) The Reaper Has Nice Breasts September 28, 2022 14:06

Out of the handful of Rollin works I've watched thus far, Fascination stands out as the most memorable both in execution, plot and cast.  It's an easier film to get through than some of his earlier vampire centric works, which are visually beautiful but lacking the depth of plot to keep most viewers attentive.


Speed Review: Death Spa (1989) No Pain, No Gain May 4, 2022 08:00

Death Spa offers a fair share of camp, with plenty of 80's American flare and a lot of beautiful women in spandex or very little at all, which may or may not be ruined by the ending which quickly spirals out of control.


Shadow Puppets (2007) Strip Down For Your Shadow October 11, 2019 08:00

Shadow Puppets manages to surprise and be more than simply a low budget horror / thriller that squeaks by solely on the merit of Jolene Blalock and Natasha Alam walking around most of the film in their underwear.


Sukkubus - den Teufel im Leib [Succubus - The Devil In The Body] (1989) - Milk, It Does A Body Good March 1, 2019 09:00

Sukkubus is a perfect example of how to completely squander an opportunity to make a truly classic euro-cult horror film by taking a unique setting and an incredibly sexy Italian model (whose willing to not wear anything), and spend most of the time following three herdsmen around doing their daily chores.


Alien Terminator (1995) - I'm A Celebrity Look-A-Like Get Me Out Of Here! February 24, 2019 09:00

Alien Terminator contains neither an alien nor a futuristic cyborg assassin.  But that really doesn't matter because what other film features a crackhead Corey Feldman double, a cowardly Billy Ray Cyrus clone, the country bumpkin version of Bradley Cooper, Maria Ford pre-cosmetic surgery and the spicy Lisa Boyle whose credited under two names!


Speed Review: The Haunting of Morella (1990) - Babewatch In Colonial America December 3, 2018 09:00

While I prefer my B-movies "made in Italy", in terms of American camp anything Roger Corman is attached to is usually about the best in entertaining crap you can get made in America, as most of his films purely aim to please the basic senses, which is pretty well accomplished here.


Speed Review: The Deathhead Virgin (1974) - No Moro Please! November 26, 2018 09:00

If someone spent the time editing out about an hour of what can only be described as the actors filming their vacation, you'd be left with thirty minutes that might be at least watchable as a short.


Lust For A Vampire (1971) - Strange Love November 2, 2018 08:00

On the heels of The Vampire Lovers quickly followed the very controversial sequel, Lust For A Vampire. It was controversial in the sense that everyone seems to have an extremely different opinion about it. But what's most surprising is the opinions of those who actually worked on it!


The Vampire Lovers (1970) - Ingrid Pitt The Hammer Goddess September 13, 2018 10:34

Never once was I bored as Ingrid Pitt, manages to flawlessly play a seductive vampire who toys with her prey or simply goes for a jugular.  After viewing this it's quite clear why she is thought of by many as one of Hammer's top female icons.


Haunted (1995) - The Best Of Beckinsale Pt. 1 March 27, 2017 08:00

Before she was famous Kate Beckinsale co-starred in this quaint British horror / suspense film that manages to succeed on almost all levels with good acting, atmosphere and a very simple execution.


The Vampires Night Orgy (1973) - Vampire Flesh Is A Dish Best Served Warm! October 22, 2016 08:00

With an upbeat jazz / funk soundtrack, a Shakespeare loving Countess who orders the inhabitants of the village to sacrifice their appendages to feed the unsuspecting visitors, and a ghost child who kills his only friend in a vain attempt to save her, there's never a dull moment.
