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!

Speed Review: Jezebel's Kiss (1990) Family Ties March 28, 2021 12:12


To the credit of the writer / director, while the film is awful at least he had the sense to take advantage of the fact he had a hot model willing to bare all and actually gave her a bulk of the screen time, something those "geniuses" behind the early Pamela Anderson films failed to grasp.

Speed Review: Snapdragon (1993) A Not So Happy Ending February 12, 2021 13:00


Snapdragon is another Pamela Anderson vehicle that fails to understand if you're going to make a bad film with one of the most popular playmates of all-time at least make one where she receives a bulk of the screen-time.

Speed Review: She (1984) - SHE! SHE! SHE! September 14, 2020 08:00


While She is far from perfect what the film gets right is the casting of Sandahl Bergman running around in a loin cloth with a sword the entire film making it worth the watch at least once on that alone.

Speed Review: Fatal Conflict (2000) - Are You Talkin' To Me? July 23, 2019 08:00


Fatal Conflict is a stale low budget action film that looks like it was filmed in the 80's, with a guy who can't turn the bad De Niro impressions off, starring an actress whose real assets go unused in a story Van Damme would likely even turn down.

Speed Review: The Advanced Guard (aka The Colony) (1998) - Rated-R For Really False Advertising March 8, 2019 13:54


The Colony is a perfect example of false advertising.  It's typical Sci-Fi Channel schlock with after-the-fact repackaging, re-branding, and the blatant pointless flauntingly of blonde beauty Jennifer O'Dell (who was never in the original version) to sell some DVD's.

Speed Review: Wonder Women (1973) - Minus The Wonder February 5, 2019 09:00


If you're a sucker for bad movies filmed in the Philippines, with no plot, an obligatory cock fighting scene, a drunk insurance investigator, the hot redhead who played Greedo in Star Wars, an army of butt kicking beauties, and of course Vic Diaz, then Wonder Women is the film for you!

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.
