A CRAZY KILLER, AN ALIEN THAT LOOKS LIKE A PENIS
WITH TEETH, BARE-KNUCKLE FIGHTING AND MORE…
THIS WEEK ON THE WALL!
Kind of a slow week on The Wall, Bastards. Thinks kick up later this month though with THE DEAD, MEATBALLS (Blu), NUDE NUNS WITH BIG GUNS, THE OUTLAW SAMURAI, and a few more. As always, click the cover art to buy or browse at Amazon and help support our little dirty secret.
DG PICK OF THE WEEK
FILTH TO ASHES, FLESH TO DUST is a flick that really shouldn’t work. It had everything working against it; production problems (before director Paul Morrel settled into the seat), a cast that isn’t very good, and a bare bones concept. Despite all this, FILTH TO ASHES, FLESH TO DUST is a solid horror film with a brutal, blood soaked climax. Morrel managed to kind of splice together a torture porn movie like SAW and the best parts of a slasher film. Keep your eye on this dude, he’s going to do some cool shit. For more on Morrel, check out our interview with the cool cat.
The Citizen Kane of the popular Aliens That Look Like Dicks with Teeth genre. THE DEADLY SPAWN (aka RETURN OF THE ALIENS: THE DEADLY SPAWN) is a micro-budget classic that has built a cult following bigger than the bulge in The Wall’s pants (see: stuffing with socks). Joking aside, this is a fucking awesome flick. Too bad director (and co-writer) Douglas McKeown never made another film after this. Screenwriter Ted Bohus though is another story. He is still in the biz and busting out b-movie bliss with REGENERATED MAN and VAMPIRE VIXENS FROM VENUS.
This could have been cool as hell, but it just never achieves take-off. It has moments of chaotic violence, it has hints of what could have been, but in the end, The Wall was left unimpressed. Some of you are going to dig it though…
John Schneider, JJ Walker, and Fred Olen Ray behind the camera? Done and fucking done!
FROM THE DRAWERS OF THE HYPE FILE…
This isn’t the first documentary flick to hit THE WALL, but it’s hands down the toughest. An epic 12-year journey into in the world of an Irish Traveller community, KNUCKLE goes deep inside their world of bare-knuckle fighting (think about that boxing scene in SNATCH and then multiply that shit by a factor of twelve). Tough as nails. Trust The Wall.
That’s it for this week, Bastards.
We’re back next week with: THE OUTLAW SAMURAI (Blu), THE DEAD, NUDE NUNS WITH BIG GUNS, and more.
HERE’S TO GOOD WATCHING THIS WEEK, SALUTE!
