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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
