10 Questions with Tom Lisanti

Book author Tom Lisanti was kind enough to answer some questions for me over at Cinedelica about his new book Glamour Girls of Sixties Hollywood, which I reviewed here over the weekend. The interview is well worth reading if you’re a fan of sixties-era film starlets and Tom talks a lot about his upcoming book projects such as the Gail Gerber memoir Strange Love: Terry … Continue reading 10 Questions with Tom Lisanti

10 Questions with Tim Lucas

Over at Cinedelica we’re starting a new feature today called “10 Questions” and my first interviewee is film critic and author Tim Lucas. I’ve been reading Tim’s film criticism since first coming across it in magazines like Fangoria and Gorezone in the ’80s when I was a teenager. There are few critics that have inspired and influenced my own writing more then Tim, so I … Continue reading 10 Questions with Tim Lucas

The Night of the Sorcerers (1973)

I neglected to mention that I reviewed Amando de Ossorio’s The Night of the Sorcerers (a.k.a. La Noche de los brujos, 1973) last month for Cinedelica. Out of the five or six Amando de Ossorio films I’ve seen The Night of the Sorcerers is my least favorite, but it’s still mildly entertaining and it might be worth a look if you’ve enjoyed the director’s other … Continue reading The Night of the Sorcerers (1973)

Spotlight on Koji Wakamatsu

Images from Koji Wakamatsu’s Go, Go Second Time Virgin (1969) I recently reviewed Koji Wakamatsu’s impressive Go, Go Second Time Virgin (1969) for Cinedelica. If you’re interested in Japanese avant-garde cinema and pink films, I highly recommend giving Koji Wakamatsu’s films a look. I’ve also recently been helping Michael over at his excellent French language Japanese film site Wildgrounds with his English translation of a … Continue reading Spotlight on Koji Wakamatsu

All the News That’s Fit to Print

A semi-nude and tattooed Sean Connery in A Fine Madness (1966) August Movie Review Roundup . . . Last month my computer suffered a major meltdown and had to be replaced, which really slowed down my writing. I was only able to complete one review for Cinedelica last month and that was for Irvin Kershner’s dark comedy A Fine Madness (1966) which stars a rather … Continue reading All the News That’s Fit to Print

Another month has come and gone and that means it’s time for another edition of what I now offically call my Movie Review Roundup which collects links to all the films I reviewed for Cinedelica last month.

I also … Continue reading June Movie Review Roundup

You’ll find reviews there for lots of cult films and movies that are not covered much by other sources. I’ve recently reviewed the entertaining British slasher film The Comeback (1977) and the fun musical horror comedy The Ghost in … Continue reading Cinedelica News

Perversion Story

I don’t know if I’ll get around to writing about all the Lucio Fulci films that have recently been released and re-released on DVD anytime soon, but I recently wrote about Fulci’s Perversion Story (Una sull’altra, 1969) for Cinedelica which was released by Severin Films late last month. Perversion Story is a great erotic thriller and I wouldn’t necessarily refer to it as a “giallo … Continue reading Perversion Story
