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!

Up Pompeii (1971) It Happened One Orgy June 17, 2022 08:00

British humor at it's best (or worse) depending on how juvenile you feel or enjoy a good repetitive orgy joke.  Up Pompeii has a bunch of one sided one liners that can get old fast, faster than the screen time of Julie Ege, who let's admit from the promotional photos is the reason most people want to watch this.


Hell Drivers (1957) - The Dump Truck Film November 8, 2019 09:00

At first Hell Drivers might not sound like much of a film, speeding around on the back roads of Europe hauling gravel, but as the film progresses the story beings to evolve into quite an interesting and exciting drama.


Deadlier Than The Male (1967) - Sylva Koscina Harpoons My Heart November 24, 2018 09:00

Considering the title, Deadlier Than The Male, it should come as little surprise the film focuses quite largely on the fairer sex, and oh boy do they give every Bond Girl a run for their money!


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.


Hot Enough For June (1964) - But You Should Have Been Here Last September June 30, 2018 19:28

What happens when the great 007 meets his untimely demise?  Where does the British Secret Service turn to replace 007?  Well the unemployment office of course!  Dirk Bogarde and the lovely Sylva Koscina star in this campy spy comedy about an out of work writer who unknowingly accepts the job of an undercover spy.


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 3, 2017 09:00

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.


Prehistoric Women (Slave Girls) (1967) - A Time When Blondes Didn't Have More Fun September 5, 2016 08:00

Contrary to popular belief, Prehistoric Women is far from Hammer's worst film and in many respects is one of it's better prehistoric adventure films being overshadowed by sister One Million Years B.C. due to a quick and follow-up release.


One Million Years B.C. (1966) - When Furkinis Ruled The Earth May 28, 2016 08:00

One Million Years B.C. not only sparked a flurry of prehistoric knockoffs in the late 1960's and 70's it also established the career and sex symbol status of one Raquel Welch.
