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!

Lust For A Vampire (1971) - Strange Love November 02, 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.


The Vampires Night Orgy (1973) - Vampire Flesh Is A Dish Best Served Warm! October 22, 2016 08:00

With an upbeat jazz / funk soundtrack, a Shakespeare loving Countess who orders the inhabitants of the village to sacrifice their appendages to feed the unsuspecting visitors, and a ghost child who kills his only friend in a vain attempt to save her, there's never a dull moment.
