Pupi Avati: The Man Behind The House With Laughing Windows

Posted 14th November 2012 at 04:09 PM by iluvdvds@Cult Labs

When it comes to cult Italian horror films, a few notorious names instantly spring to mind. From Lucio Fulci to Ruggero Deodato, Dario Argento and Mario Bava; thereís no doubt that these directors are some of the best names in cult Italian cinema. But with Shameless Screen Entertainmentís upcoming release of one of the greatest and most atmospheric gialli, The House With Laughing Windows, what better time than now, to look at the man responsible for this eerie thriller; Pupi Avati. Having directed...

The Mass Hypnosis Tape

Posted 19th January 2010 at 12:40 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

The Mass Hypnosis Tape


WARNING: THIS MIX TAPE CONTAINS SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES THAT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!*



This mix was the one I produced just before I made the "Erotic Sounds" tape, that featured only original material (well, when I say original, I mean tracks consisting of chopped up samples).

There's lots of my stuff on here as well as full tracks by other artists so this one might be described as transitional...

Terror Express (La Regazza del Vagone Letto - 1979)

Posted 12th November 2009 at 03:20 PM by Philleh

Terror Express (La Regazza del Vagone Letto - 1979)
Camera Obscura

Terror Express is a late-comer to the rape/revenge genre that was launched by Wes Cravenís sadistic Last House on the Left, but itís also one of the sleaziest, scrap that, possibly the sleaziest; though that really isnít that shocking when you realise itís from the same mind that conjured up such classy titles as Porno Holocaust and Erotic Nights of the Living Dead - Luigi Montefiori (A.K.A George Eastman)....

Men Behind The Sun

Posted 21st May 2009 at 01:28 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

From the annals of DVDisgo and DVDresurrections


Men Behind The Sun









The ultimate geek show movie or a harsh indictment of Japan's war crimes during the second world war? Maybe it's both but be assured, Men Behind The Sun is one of the harshest, most uncompromising films ever committed to celluloid and then inflicted on an audience.

The film open with some young male adolescents who...

From the annals of DVDisgo (RIP) and DVDresurrections


La Settima Donna









This nasty slice of Italian exploitation will please fans of rough fare like Last House on the Left and They Call Her One Eye. In fact the movie was marketed in some territories as Last House on the Beach, which should give clued in viewers an idea of the queasy unpleasantness thatís packed into this stylish but depraved little...

Black Mama White Mama

Black Mama White Mama





Queen of 70s black cinema, Pam Grier (Cleopatra Jones, Coffy, Jackie Brown) stars in this "Chicks-in-chains" rehash of the Classic Tony Curtis/Sidney Poitier prison escape film, "The Defiant Ones".

Two women prisoners, one black, one white, exist in a hellish prison where bullish lesbian guards hound them. During transportation an uprising from their fellow inmates allows our pair to escape into the jungle, joined...

Dementia (Daughter of Horror)

Posted 2nd May 2009 at 10:07 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

Dementia (Daughter of Horror)





A real oddity, Dementia (also known by it's alternate title, Daughter Of Horror), started life as a 10 minute short before Director John Parker expanded this essentially silent movie into a 60-minute feature.

The movies only real dialogue comes from a narrator, a trick used in a lot of sleazy sex pictures in the 60s such as the Olga series of S&M movies. He welcomes us in the horrific depths of a fractured...

Satan's Sadists

Posted 26th April 2009 at 11:38 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

Satan's Sadists





A perverse thrill can sometimes be gotten from wallowing in the last gasps of a once successful actors career. Think of Molly Ringwald, once a part of Pretty in Pink and heading for glory before crashing in the 90s and ending up in the terrible Aussie slasher movie "Cut".

And so to Russ Tamblyn, once riding high on the success of West Side Story, before Hollywood's excesses saw him plummet to earth, leaving him starring...

The Nun & The Devil

Posted 26th April 2009 at 10:24 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

The Nun & The Devil






Following the huge success of Ken Russell churching baiting classic The Devils, the Italian B-movie industry kicked into gear with a slew of "Nunsploitation" cash-ins designed to rack up the sacrilege, sex and bloodshed to get punters into theatres. The Nun and The Devil is one of the better examples of the style and is a good movie despite being in extremely dubious taste. Taking place in a 16th century holy order, it shows...

A lonely country boy called Billy lives on an isolated farm with his smothering and slightly mental father. Billy needs to be hidden away because he can't be trusted around other folks...especially women.

Billy is convinced that he murders them in a blind frenzy but has no memory of the crimes afterwards. This terrible fate will befall four young women who have car trouble and seek shelter at the farm. Soon each will...

Full Metal Yakuza

Posted 25th April 2009 at 11:23 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

Full Metal Yakuza





In Full Metal Yakuza, director Takashi Miike, maker of such extreme Japanese movies as Zebraman, Ichi The Killer and One Missed Call, steals the plot from Robocop, as a downtrodden low ranking gangster is transformed into a robot-killing machine by a crazy science guy. Our lowly gangster goes from meek servant to the gang boss, from a natural target for bullies to a super-strong fighting warrior who in one memorable scene in a car...

Well, here it is, one of the greatest slices of kitsch 60s pop-art cinema ever produced.

Directed by Italian genre expert Mario Bava, this comic book tale of crime capers and daring heists is the source the Beastie Boys video for Body Movin', in which they use footage from the movie.

Blog 50 - Dracula Vs Frankstein

Posted 24th April 2009 at 07:41 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Dracula Vs Frankenstein





Al Adamson should win a posthumous Oscar for services to the trashy drive-in movie! Whether it be cheap Kung Fu knock offs, scummy biker flicks or this ghost-train wreck of a movie, his films may have been terrible, but they were never dull.

Cobbled together from other unfinished projects, Dracula Vs Frankenstein has it all, Mad scientists hiding out in fair ground attractions, deranged hunched back assistants...

Bad Boy Bubby

Posted 22nd April 2009 at 04:09 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Bad Boy Bubby



A real Australian oddity from the early 90s, Bad Boy Bubby takes that quirky, slightly off kilter style that you find in even the most mainstream of Antipodean movies and runs with it, creating a bleak, sick and funny movie which may well appall some viewers but will find a home with horror fans who have a taste for the bizarre.

Bubby is a bad, bad boy. His mother has kept him locked away for 30 years, telling him that the air outside...

Scraping The Cannibal Barrel...

Posted 22nd April 2009 at 08:57 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

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.

Race With The Devil

Posted 20th April 2009 at 06:38 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Race With The Devil





Peter Fonda was a cultural icon back in the early 70s as the fall out from his groundbreaking feature Easy Rider continued, allowing the actor to work on whatever project he pleased. After teaming up with Warren Oates for the Hippie-Western The Hired Hand, the pair worked together again on this low budget, Drive-in exploitation movie.

Although it keeps any violence or gore to minimum, instead focusing on bike stunts...

Female Prisoner No.701 Scorpion - Beast Stable




That's the great thing about Japsploitation... Even the Trailer are a work of art!


The third installment of the Prisoner Scorpion saga sees Sasori, the borderline psychotic heroine of the series, on the run from the authorities in a film that reverses the previous format by having The Scorpion fleeing from the law, only returning to jail for the final act.

Turkey Shoot (AKA Blood Camp Thatcher)

Posted 20th April 2009 at 05:08 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Turkey Shoot (Blood Camp Thatcher)





The Australians know how to make entertaining trash. Something in the national consciousness seems to infuse many of their mainstream movies, like the fantastic Priscilla Queen of the Desert and the glorious camp of Strictly Ballroom, with an off kilter goofiness that naturally lends itself to the seamy end of the cinematic world. When they make trash horror and sci-fi you end up with bizarre concoctions like Mad Max,...

Switchblade Sisters

Posted 5th April 2009 at 07:26 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Switchblade Sisters, like the best of US exploitation movies, exists in it's own strange universe. It's a world where the harsh realities of teenage gang membership are put through a surreal filter, creating a bizarre urban fantasy that jars the viewer as it's flits back and forth between the unintentional comedy of the performances and the sadistic nastiness inherent in the subject matter. In that regard it could be seen as a companion piece to The Warriors, another film that shines gangland reality...

Updated 5th April 2009 at 09:40 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

This piece short piece was written before the unfortunate demise of Woolworths.

I used to love visiting the Newport store, where you could always find some quirky cult oddity lurking amongst the cheap rip off re-makes of Disney cartoons, ancient and exceptionally unarousing erotic thrillers starring Jeff Fahey and those riveting Carp Fishing videos.

Who can complain about Driller Killer, complete with the directors cynical commentary, for 97p?
