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? Welcome to the world of international cult films, 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! So 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 produced and filmed in Europe.

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: The Advanced Guard (aka The Colony) (1998) - Rated-R For Really False Advertising March 08, 2019 12:54

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 05, 2019 08:00

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 03, 2018 08:00

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 08:00

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.
