Spanish tile manfacturers are always wanting me over for an all expenses paid visit to see their new 'state of the art factory' in Castellon.....think they'd be chuffed if I asked them to take me to a dvd shop?:rofl:

I get that aswell Sarah. Personally I don't mind though :D I like watching those cheap shitty films (now and again, couldn't hack it all the time) they're good for a laugh with a few beers if nothing else.

I didn't mind the first few (million) times it happened. It was afterwards when I started getting repeated copies of stuff like Halloween Camp and Freak :ack: That's when it started bugging me!

LOL, that would be pretty annoying, after all, it's not like they can give you the receipt so you can get it changed. It wouldn't even be worth the effort, what are you gonna get for a quid? :D

Funny you should mention Halloween Camp. I was looking for this recently as I only have the second one ('Scream if you wanna die faster') and it turns out it goes for some pretty silly money now. There's a couple of brand new copies for sale on amazon going for just under 40 quid :eek: If you've got multiples of it bang them up for sale, you might be onto a nice little earner there ;)

:mad:

OK, rant over.

That is so true Sarah.
Happened to me plenty of times.

Halloween_22 4th September 2008 10:16 AM

Watched two British films last night. Jake West's Evil Aliens and re-watched Alex Chandon's Cradle of Fear (As it's been a good few years since my last viewing). Two of the goriest films I've seen in a long time, thoroughly enjoyed them both. Definatley recommended if you haven't seen them.

vipco 4th September 2008 05:42 PM

I give my missus a list of 4 DVD's plus the money for 1 as thats all I could afford this week, as she was going into town today . I couldn't go as im currently having problem's with my legs.

First preferences was Night Trains and Killers Moon and I added Deep Red and Mother of Tears in case my preferences weren't in stock , as she only had time to go to HMV and Night Trains is rarely in stock so I wasn't to hopeful ,hence the list, as I wanted something .

Only Mother of Tears was on the shelf in the horror Section, so she got me that.
What a pathetic Horror Section we have in Belfast HMV., pathetic .
She did see The Fog original on BluRay. ( one of my fav's) in stock though.

So Mother of Tears was the last DVD I bought.

bedorca 4th September 2008 05:58 PM

Always been a bit reluctant to watch those two (Evil Aliens and Cradle of Fear) H22

Now a fellow Shamelessist (is that a word?) like yourself has heartily recommended them I will endeavour to seek and watch!!!

Gotta keep that British end up .......... ooer

Sam 4th September 2008 09:54 PM

Picked up A Bucket of Blood from the pound shop and really enjoyed it, especially all that Beatnick-speak!! Anything past its 65 minutes running time and it might have outstayed its welcome though!

Also watched Death Carries a Cane - a pretty nifty giallo which would make a great Shameless release.

Halloween_22 4th September 2008 10:39 PM

Not seen 'Late Night Trains' yet Vip's? If not your in for a treat ;) I re-watched it at the weekend. Fantastic film, beats 'Last House' hands down IMO. The scenes in the train carriage are seriously nasty and the revenge is far more realistic. I liked how it was more of a spontaneous outburst of violence rather than the planned out attack in Last House, much more realistic and definatley more effective (again IMO :D). Shameless's transfer is stunning aswell (as always). You wouldn't think you were watching a film from the 70's.

Go for it Bedorca mate. They're fairly low budget but there's enough Gore, violence, sex and sickness between the two of them to keep anyone happy :D (not to mention they both star the very lovely Emily Booth :p)

Hope you like them.

iluvdvds@Cult Labs 5th September 2008 11:50 AM

I watched BATTLE ROYALE again (!) last night! That film is probably the best film I've seen in AGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEESSSSSSS! LOL! It's just so good and quite emotional too. What can I say but:

I LUV IT! ;)

I haven't seen the 2nd one however as I heard it is crap. Also I am so glad that Hollywood decided to put the remake on hold - they would have RUINED this film - just like almost every other film they 'remake'! :)

Not yet H , as its alway's outta stock when I go in to town.

I'll pre order it next time if its not in stock though as i've been after it for to long now.
I just hate the way HMV make you pay the full price up front to pre order , then 'forget' to phone you when it comes in.
Last DVD I pre ordered I heard nothing after 10 days, so I phoned then to inquire and they told me it had been sitting in their store for a week.
The thought of 1 of the most precious DVD's gathering dust in a store room for a week put me off pre ordering.

I'll definenitly get it, or get it pre ordered next time I can get into town.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 5th September 2008 05:08 PM

LATE NIGHT TRAINS is one of Shameless's finest hours Vip's.....;)

gax 5th September 2008 06:11 PM

just got cannibal ferox ultrabit tin box excellent quality but should be for the price i payed for it ?35 :ack:

vipco 5th September 2008 06:24 PM

What extras is on it gax.? ( Ferox )
Hope you enjoy it mate, happy viewing.

35 - 50 are the standard price for Ferox & Holocaust in a shop in Belfast that does imports.

Looking forward to it Reap's ( Trains ).
If all goes well I should have it or have it preordered sometime within the next 10 day's.
I should be ok to go into town by then.
Its top of my 'to get' list, marked 'urgent'.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 5th September 2008 06:35 PM

Does he know he can get royally screwed by the fuzz for selling imports?

gax 5th September 2008 10:06 PM

Couldn't agree more mate. 'Battle Royale' is a superb film, really need to revisit it sometime soon. It really is an emotional film, very powerful. One of my favourites of all time.

Wouldn't bother with the second one, you heard right, it's pretty crap. Not even in the same league as the first. It just seems really pointless, i'm guessing it was just made as a money spinner after the success of the first one.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 6th September 2008 05:03 PM

For those that like royal and epic porn,Caligula goes a long way.....:D

vipco 6th September 2008 05:53 PM

You gonna get it Reap's .?

I think i'll get it for the films history but not watch it as I really do not like porn or films with HC inserts.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 6th September 2008 07:59 PM

Ain't much history involved mate....;):D

Halloween_22 7th September 2008 12:15 AM

I'll definatley be picking up Caligula. Had the cut version for a few years now, can't wait to see it in all it's 'glory' :D.

Dammit! Ended up giving my second copy to my brother! No idea why it's going for that sort of money. It's amusing in a so-bad-it's good-way but it's not the best. Not seen Scream If You Wanna Die Faster although I do have the prequel to Halloween Camp, Scream Bloody Murder, which is horrendously bad. But very funny. It was released by Prism Leisure over here but I think it was originally released in the US as Bloody Murder. It's so bad it's hilarious... :rofl:

I know, it's ridiculous. I couldn't believe it, I remember seeing it years back in Blockbusters bargain bin all the time for a few quid tops. I'm guessing it's OOP, but still, surely no-one would pay that much for Halloween Camp :ack:
I've got Scream Bloody Murder aswell albeit on a vhs I picked up for about 50p. That one's going for just under 20 quid aswell, unbelievable.

Out of the three of em,halloween camp wins hands down. Ok,its a pretty derivative slasher,but it has what the other two dont,gallons of gore,and thats what we watch slashers for right?
Was actually surprised that it passed as a 15,as it has some pretty nasty gore scenes,one in particular has a guy getting his legs hacked off whilst puking up his guts. yeuch!

The least said about sbm the better,probably the worst slasher made..apart from that bloody awful prom night remake!

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 9th September 2008 08:21 PM

MIDNITE MOVIES double bill of THE VAMPIRE LOVERS/COUNTESS DRACULA...superb pic quality and a cracking double bill......;)

CAT O ' NINE TAILS ABUS.....find something more likable every time I watch this,not his finest by any means,but an enjoyable giallo none the less....

Mojo 10th September 2008 04:11 PM

The Innocents ( UK BFI )

Read about this one and heard it was pretty scary. Having now watched it for the first time, all I can say is - they weren't kidding! This is by far the creepiest film I've seen in a hell of a long time. Best b+w horror since Carnival Of Souls - and better than The Haunting ( and that's saying something! ) Brilliant.

Superb set from BFI, including audio commentaries, an introduction / review from Christopher Frayling and a glossy booklet. HMV are now selling this one for a tenner. What are you waiting for??!


Beyond The Door ( R1 Code Red )

Excellent crossover of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist from the glorious 70s. Also known as The Devil Within Her ( which is the title used on screen at the beginning of the film ). Genuinely creepy in places and with some truly bizarre sequences ( including the 'nose flute' scene! )

( Mono ) audio isn't the greatest, which is a pity, as it has a groovy jazzy soundtrack and some creepy sound effects. However, the pq is excellent - I doubt if it's been any better. Some good interviews here too, with the likes of Juliet Mills and Richard Johnson.

Nice package from Code Red and one of the better Exorcist rip-offs. Recommended.

vipco 10th September 2008 04:44 PM

Who Saw Her Die, Late Night Train s and Blood Bath at the House of Death. ( All gifts )

A'int seen any of them before but im definitely looking forward to watching them.

I haven't been disapointed by any of the Shameless titles i've got and im in double digits there, so I know i'll enjoy the 2 Shameless titles .

As for Blood Bath, well, its got Kenny Everett in it, so how can I not enjoy it. Classic Brit camp horror, Fantastic.!

iluvdvds@Cult Labs 12th September 2008 10:36 AM

Just watched 'Who Saw Her Die' which I got from Sarah's (brilliant) comp! Here's what I thought of it:

This is a very good Giallo directed by the brilliant Aldo Lado starring George Lazenby (James Bond; OHMSS)! A very good thriller about a father (Lazenby) searching for the person who killed his young daughter. The best part about this film is the truly amazing cinematography - practically every shot is very artistic and beautiful (especially set against the backdrop of Venice) as well as the the score which is puire genius (by Ennio Morricone) and really adds to the tense atmosphere.

It has also been said that the classic 'DON'T LOOK NOW' was heavily influenced by this film; the same setting, child murdered, simular characters, the list goes on. And personally, I have no idea which one I preffered!

This DVD (released by the FANTASTIC 'Shameless') is one of their best releases; again the cover is reversible and the quality is breathtaking. Although their are no real extras (besides the trailers of other Shameless releases) there are many scenes in this film which have been added in to make this the most complete and longest version of the film ever, such as the start in which a little girl is murdered in a snowy film - incredible stuff.

A word of warning however; do not go into this film, expecting gratitous violence and blood EVERYWHERE! This is actually a 15 rated film (by the BBFC) but was risen to an 18 due to the trailers included. However, don't let this put you off, and the murder scenes ARE stunning (my fav being the murder of the guy with all the birds in the cage) This is a great film and fans of giallo's/ italian cinema of the 70s will LUV this film!

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK SHAMELESS!

Halloween_22 12th September 2008 02:30 PM

I watched 'Who Saw Her Die?' last night, Great film. It really creeped me out :D There was just something about that woman in the black veil I really didn't like (aside from the fact she goes around murdering children of course) and that music everytime she came on screen, Very haunting. One of the creepiest films I've seen in a long time.
It was great to see the new trailers aswell, can't wait for these to get released, especially 'Oasis of Fear', (Ornella Muti......:p)

vipco 13th September 2008 12:27 AM

Just watched it myself, very enjoyable.
Your right about the music Hal, very haunting.

Your right Bedorca, George does look really skinny in it.

Halloween_22 13th September 2008 03:23 PM

Went into HMV whilst in town this morning and picked up Something Wierd Video's Herschell Gordon Lewis collection Master of Gore. It features Colour me Blood Red, 2000 Maniacs, Wizard of Gore and Gruesome Twosome. Would have preferred something different to Twosome as I have the tartan release already but it's a pretty decent set and I've yet to see the others so figured I'd go for it.

Also picked up Hells Ground, Pakistans first splatter film, should be an interesting watch if nothing else, although I've heard some really good things about it. Quite looking forward to this one.

I was toying with picking up Mother of Tears but for 13.99 figured I'd hold out and try and get it cheaper online.

iluvdvds@Cult Labs 13th September 2008 05:22 PM

"Thriller: A Cruel Picture" - Limited Edition UNCUT Synapse DVD

vipco 13th September 2008 05:26 PM

Mother of Tears cost me 16 quid in Belfast HMV.
Seem's like we pay a few quid extra over here.

How much was the HG Lewis set Hal.

Im looking for the Warren Collection boxset as i've been looking for Inseminoid and Prey for ages now but no luck. Seems like i'll have to order in the Warren collection boxset, as it looks like the only way i'll get them.
Ah well, with the exception of 1 film its seems a pretty good set.
