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!

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.


Phantom Ship (1935) - The Original Dracula Captains The First Hammer Film February 03, 2017 08:00

After over 75 years its amazing Phantom Ship is the only major motion picture production that has ever attempted to give a possible explanation for historic mystery of the disappearance of the crew of the Mary Celeste.  For that alone it's probably well due the label of "classic" Hammer.


Beyond Desire (1995) Elvisexploitation September 17, 2016 09:38

An ex-con with an Elvis complex, a hot Vegas prostitute with a nice set of wheels and a million dollars at stake.  This could be the best film you've ever seen, or a real mess of a "thriller".
