Play Motel

December 4th, 2016

Play Motel (1979) probably takes place in the same world as Absurd, a world where the Rams beat the Steelers in the big game, and where the usual rules of cause, effect, and camera work are not in existence. One way that it is different: the inclusion of hard-core pornography in the first half of the movie. The bump-and-grind goes away in the second half, but what you have seen, you can’t unsee.


Another thing one can’t forget: the damn theme song.


At least this sleazeball has taste.


One of the tableaus features a little role play between this type 2 devil and a poor mortal.


Our mortal.

Baba Yaga

December 2nd, 2016

Baba Yaga (1973) is based on the work of an Italian fumetti artist Guido Crepax. More importantly, the witch at the center is also the witch who runs Baba Yaga’s Hut, a mid-level artifact in the DM’s Guide. Keep in mind, mid-level is still incredibly powerful, and any adventurer worth his, her, or its experience points would love to have it.

And the movie is also pretty good and features one of the few bondage dolls I have seen in a movie. Maybe she could hook up with Chucky.


Quite an outfit madame.


Not the only weird Nazi material in Baba Yaga.


I think this is the kitchen in the actual hut.


The new world of design.


S&M Barbie.


This outfit is representative of the fashion throughout much of the movie.


Note both the fur poncho on the hippie in the front and the striped pants in the back.


A laundry commercial, 1972 Italian style.


Nice sweater.


Ho-o-o-gaan!


Fin.

Succubus

November 26th, 2016

Jess Franco’s 1968 Necronomicon – Geträumte Sünden, or Succubus for those of us who don’t speak German, was apparently inspired by Franco reading a short story in the Necromonicon in the late 1960s. It would be interesting to see what exactly Franco read since there isn’t a Necronomicon, only phony versions of it. No matter what he read, it must have been far, far out. It is best not to watch this movie expecting a coherent narrative.


“What do these objects make you think of?”


This was what the piano player was using for sheet music. I said this movie was far out.


She had enough of his intellectual games.


Even in Germany, we relax with the taste of J&B.


At this point, we all know what sugar cubes equal.


There is a lot of weird material going down in this scene.


We get it, you are cute.


Far, far out.

The Killer Reserved Nine Seats

November 20th, 2016

This movie was not that good. There, I said it. L’assassino ha riservato nove poltrone (1974) may have had nine seats reserved but not much else. But I can say I watched it, so there.


Nice crocheted number.


She needs to work on her nails.


This guy does have an all velvet suit.


He’s just an idiot drugged up to the eyeballs

Spasmo

October 31st, 2016

No, not what a dwarf with a dexterity of 5 might be called, but the 1974 movie Spasmo. This certainly was not one of my favorite giallo/giallo-like/giallo-esque romps so far; there wasn’t enough killing, nudity, or inexplicable camera zooming for my taste, but hey, I won’t make claims for everyone. There are a lot of mannequins however.


Some might call this cluttered; I call it tasteful.


I have had enough of this wasteland we call modern life.


I blame the wallpaper for all the mental illness.


Quickly, drink this.


What this movie really need was more pinball action.


Note my man in the red trousers.


“Why yes, this is a good tie.”
