Pupi Avati: The Man Behind The House With Laughing Windows

Posted 14th November 2012 at 03:09 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; there’s no doubt that these directors are some of the best names in cult Italian cinema. But with Shameless Screen Entertainment’s 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...

R.I.P Dr Harris.

Posted 3rd April 2011 at 04:29 PM by keirarts

It is our sad duty at this time to report the tragic death of esteemed new orleans physician and good samaritan Dr harris who died yesterday evening in what police are describing as a 'freak glazing accident'. Originally named simon hull the good doctor changed his name to Harris to avoid any connections with his now famous yautsman brother Brian hull (pictured below) who died in a now legendary Zombie outbreak on the remote carribean island of matool.

Horrific Memories

Posted 15th July 2009 at 02:00 AM by BioZombie

This is my first ever attempt at blogging, I've always wanted to have a go. As this is the blog section of a film board I guess I’ll try to keep it relevant but I quite often enjoy going off on tangents so we’ll see.

I thought it might be fun with my first blog to write a bit about some of the films that first got me to love the horror genre. These are films that I saw when I was about 15 and spent most of my weekends renting horror films with friends. We saw a lot of rubbish, Hellgate...

Bela Lugosi's Dead Pt 1

Posted 24th April 2009 at 10:39 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Bride of the Monster

Bride of the Monster is an essential movie for all students of trash film making, a classic Z-grade shocker from the master of bad movies, Ed Wood.

Bela Lugosi stars in this poverty stricken sci-fi effort as a mad doctor (is there any other kind?) who kidnaps twelve men and attempts to use atomic energy to turn them into super-humans. A sassy female journalist gets wind of his scheme, heads up to his lair to investigate...

Hammer Bits Part 1

Posted 22nd April 2009 at 09:27 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

Plague of the Zombies

Although not as well known as the studio's Dracula and Frankenstein movies, Hammer's Plague of the Zombies rates as one of their most satisfying productions, managing to balance the delightful camp that we all ironically enjoy 40 years after the fact with some real chills.

Opening on some stereotypical voodoo rituals*, we move swiftly on to James Forbes, a medical professor who has received a letter from a former...

Redemption & Salavation Review Explosion Part 3

Posted 21st April 2009 at 08:25 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Cold Eyes of Fear

London set Giallo thriller with a great funky score form Ennio Morricone. A head scratching mess of a film featuring some truly horrendous London accents dubbed into the mouths of bottom rung actors. This shouldn't put of the trash cinema fan however, as the tacky plot and wacky ideas come thick and fast in this deliriously silly shocker. Gang fights, sexy murders staged for clapping audiences and hilariously executed threats from...

City of the Living Dead

Posted 20th April 2009 at 05:55 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

City of the Living Dead

Judging a Lucio Fulci movie by the usual standards of a mainstream film magazine or academic criticism is a useless exercise. You either get these flicks or you don't. Fulci's movies are weirdly paced, shoddily dubbed and, in a lot of cases, hard to love, but, whatever genre he was working in (and he covered the whole range of Italian B picture trash), he always bought a certain flair and imagination to his low budget enterprises...
