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!

Labyrinth (1986) - Hey Little Sister, It's A Nice Day For A White Wedding April 05, 2019 08:00

Production wise Labyrinth is top notch for it's time, and probably only the special effects could be bettered with today's technology, the sets and puppets are all very lifelike and believable which really helps bring the fantasy essence of the film to life.


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.


Alien Terminator (1995) - I'm A Celebrity Look-A-Like Get Me Out Of Here! February 24, 2019 08:00

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!


Transformations (1988) - A Bad Case Of Space Herpes February 17, 2019 14:11

Transformations is a really bad soap opera masquerading as a cheesy science fiction horror film whose only silver lining is it's sandwiched between Italian model Pamela Prati's breasts and a minuscule amount of action at the end.


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!


The Lost Empire (1984) - A Film Even Corman Couldn't Love January 26, 2019 08:00

Even Roger Corman told him [director Jim Wyonorski] he hated the film, only conceding there was a few good camera shots and the actresses were attractive.  When Corman doesn't like your campy film seems to me that says something.


Starcrash (1978) - The Best Star Wars Knock-Off Film Ever January 18, 2019 08:00

The shining light of the film is lead actress Caroline Munro, whose supermodel physique and skimpy, skin tight costumes only help make Starcrash that much more enjoyable.


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.


100 Rifles (1969) - 100 Seconds Of Raquel September 10, 2018 20:03

While Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood were making history in Italy, here in the US we were churning out films like 100 Riflesa western with the football player Jim Brown as a "policeman", Burt Reynolds as an Indian, and Raquel Welch as the only reason anyone bothered seeing this film!


Alley Cat (1984) - This Pussy Has Claws! June 15, 2018 08:00

Death Wish meets Karate Kid, with some "women in prison" exploitation mixed in for kicks in this amazingly entertaining 1980's cult film starring the busty Karin Mani.  She isn't afraid to get her hands dirty, or let people watch her clean herself off!  But don't get too close because this pussy cat has claws and she isn't afraid to use them!


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".
