Taisto Kasurinen, a finnish coal miner whose father has just committed suicide, is framed for a crime he did not commit. In jail, he starts to dream about leaving the country and starting a new life. He escapes from prison but things don't go as planned. From director Aki Kaurismaki.
STRIPPED TO KILL (1987)
A whore gets brutally murdered and Detective Greg Evigan trades in his monkey for Kay Lenz. Lenz goes undercover at a strip club run by Norman Fell. Are you still reading this? Alright... there's tons of artistic strip acts, about half the movie, and only two or three murders. The whores dance to great 80's songs like "Nothing cuts as deep as the edge of love."
BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA (1972)
A police detective is investigating a series of brutal murders involving the female customers of an exclusive beauty salon. He discovers that the killer first paralyzes his victims with an acupuncture needle dipped a deadly venom. They then lie awake and watch themselves die.
Shown April 7th
TARKAN VERSUS THE VIKINGS (1971)
Weird-ass insane and inane Viking sorcery fantasy. Tarkan must save a Turkish whore from a cult's giant octopus or something like that. I'm going to hide the lighter fluid for this showing in case someone wants to burn me alive for programming this one.
HELL IS A CITY (1960)
Committed but seen-it-all police inspector Martineau rightly guesses that after a violent jailbreak a local criminal will head home to Manchester to pick up the spoils from his last job. Martineau is soon investigating a murder during a street robbery which seems to lead back to the same villain. Concentrating on the case and using his local contacts to try and track the gang down, he is aware he is not keeping his own personal life together as well as he might. With Stanley Baker and Donald Pleasence.
WHITE LIGHTNING (1973)
Yeah, that's right, Burt Fucking Reynolds. Good ol' boy reluctantly teams up with the feds to bust up a moonshine ring run by another good ol' boy. Co-stars a bunch of good ol' boys. Directed by a Good Ol' Boy.
Served with Corn Whiskey in a jar.
Shown March 3rd
THE DARK CORNER (1946)
Film noir about a secretray trying to help her
boss who is being framed for murder. Stars Lucille Ball, William Bendix and
Clifton Webb. From the director of KISS OF DEATH.
Verson: The unexceptional story was simply a framework from which to string outstanding photography, lots of superior noir slang, and a solid cast including the hotty Lucille Ball, Clifton Webb, and William "2 Yards" Bendix.
Joe: Enjoyable but fairly standard film noir that really pays off with exemplary cinematography. And William Bendix.
SCHOOL OF THE HOLY BEAST (1974)
Some have hinted that the Atrocity Selection Committee has a "thing" about sac religious nuns so we proffer this, what we believe to be, a very very serious and thoughtful film about religion, nuns, bondage, rape, whippings, and lesbianism. From the second unit director of KOIYA KOI NASUNA KOI.
Verson: Racked up some serious points with the Atrocians when an advert for BIG GUNS was flaunted in the background of an early scene and when two naughty nuns shared a pint of Suntory. But there were lots of other reasons to call this one of the best nunsploitation flicks around.
Joe: Delivered on so many important levels important to me.
ZATOICHI IN DESPERATION (1972)
We sifted through more than 20 Zatoichi movies to present the Atrocians with the best of the series. Star Shintaro Katsu steps up to directing and takes the series to another level. Gorgeous and graphic, this is a treat on many levels and should be considered required viewing for Atrocians.
One of the best Z movies that was fun to share with the uninitiated.
Joe: Top notch Z. That's all I've got to say.
Shown February 3rd
CHALLENGE OF THE TIGER (1980)
This puppy stars Bruce Le, Richard Harrison and a bunch of topless chicks. Harrison hangs out with the naked chicks while Le writes, directs and kung fu fights a fucking bull. All that to get a jizz-killing formula out of the grasp of evil. The finest in Brucesploitation.
Verson: Richard Harrison is the first nominee in 2006 for the Van Johnson Memorial ABP Award! Harrison looks totally loaded as he floats thru this nonsensical Hong Kong action thriller. Brad Harris pumps up and Jack Klugman and Jane Seymour have unknowing cameos!
Joe: Peaked too early but was still just fun enough due to some gratuitous nudity, gratuitous fight scenes and Richard Harrison's glassy-eyed hopped-up performance.
NIGHT OF THE BLOODY APES (1968)
Weird Mexican movie about a mad scientist who transplants an ape heart into his ailing son so he starts killing chicks. Contains some nudity, stock medical footage, women wrestling, and some gore.
Verson: Mexican medical hi-jinx features a monster with an eye for tits, chick wrestling, first-time drivers, and a green Rambler American station wagon.
Joe: This Mexican movie has a monster with an agenda that all monsters should follow - terrorize the streets and tear chick's clothes off. I liked it.
STATELINE MOTEL (1975)
After robbing a jewelery shop in Canada, two Americans (Fabio Testi and Eli Wallach) arrange a meeting near the US borders in order to split the loot but get trapped there. The owner of the motel, a sexy woman in her thirties, falls in love with him, but her suspicions about him begin to multiply, as the police arrive at the motel. Also stars Ursula Andress and Barbara Bach in the role of the whores.
Verson: I liked this little noir with a good cast and a fresh mileu. Fabio Testi gets a ride from the big house directly to his next heist after which he gets sidetracked to a little hotel and falls for Ursula Andress (who wouldn't?) but what happened to the stolen jewels?
Joe: Pretty fun crime movie with a hint of sleaze, some twists and a bleak ending. I love the fact that Fabio Testi does a jewel heist after being out of jail only a few minutes.
Shown January 6th
FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY (1979)
Verson: Bizarre. Disturbing. Funny. Depressing. Incomprehensible. Filipino.
Joe: Funny and bizarre one-of-kind movie that everyone needs to see...once. Little groin demolishing superstar Weng Weng can't act but he can fight and do his own stunts (who else could they get?) and that goes a long way in my book even if you do wear baby shoes and doll clothes.
RETURN OF THE STREET FIGHTER (1974)
Verson: El Chiba returns to do more of what he did in the first film. Kick ass. If you liked (or remember) the first one, you will enjoy this one
Joe: Sonny Chiba kicks even more ass this time around. It's a fun one even with the annoying sidekick and seemingly endless martial arts school footage. At under 80 minutes I wonder if this copy was uncut as stated.
SANTO IN THE VENGEANCE OF THE MUMMY (1971)
Verson: We done been Scoobied. Santo lets us down for the first time and has a phony monster to fight. This adventure was particularly juvenile, both in front and behind the camera.
Joe: Unforgivable Santo monster movie with no fucking monster.
