In Defence of Eurotrash


Some people on Twitter don't like the term Eurotrash to describe movies and they feel it's a insult to the art of movie making and that those who might use the term are somehow ignorant and unenlightened about cinema.

They also feel that people who use the term are only reviewing cult movies to be trendy or ironic. I'd argue differently. It takes a certain knowledge of cult cinema to apply the term correctly and besides, if you've actually...

More Eurotrash weirdness...

Posted 25th April 2009 at 01:09 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Death Walks at Midnight





A Great Example of the Italian Giallo horror genre that flourished in sleazier European cinemas during the late 60s/early 70s. A fashion model is drugged as part of a publicity stunt and while tripping out witnesses a nasty murder involving a masked man with a spiked glove. When her story is published she finds that the evil fiend is now stalking her and taking out her friends.

Typically stylish but nonsensical...

If I was 30 years older I'd marry Ingrid Pitt...

Countess Dracula

Deep River Savages





Made a good few years before the late 70s / early 80s spate of gut munching cannibal epics, Deep River Savages might be described as a ground breaking feat of cinematic innovation in an alternate universe. On this planet however, it's a tawdry slice of eurotrash exploitation that, although not as graphic as later entries in the genre cycle which upped the atrocity footage to extreme levels, stills packs a nasty punch.

Orloff Against the Invisible Man

Posted 5th April 2009 at 08:25 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Orloff Against the Invisible Man

In which French director Pierre Chevalier attempts to seamlessly rip off the work of Jess Franco, the Spanish master of sex fueled Gothic horror. Orloff Against the Invisible Man sees Euro-Sleaze legend Howard Vernon return to the role he first played for Franco in The Awful Dr Orloff. Vernon, despite lending his name to some howlingly awful trash, is never less than gripping on screen. His craggy, hangdog face and demented eyes are perfect for this...
