Was at work today and several people was whistling to the tune from Twisted nerve couldn't understand why, I ask them all if they new what they were whistling and name the film it was from, not one could, found out why someone had it as his theme tune of his phone for messages, they went round asking older people to see if anyone heard of the film,no one had so thought I was making the film up,
Just logged into letter boxd and first thing I saw was what was watched by bizzare eye and it was twisted nerve I slightly chuckled to myself,

Blimey, haven't seen this film since I was a kid. I used to love it at the time and found it so creepy, would like to see it again now and see if it brings back any memories. Did you watch the DVD?

Inter-Pol aka Interpol 009 (1967)

Charming Shaw secret agent film.
Tang Ching is great as agent 009.
Much much better than Asia-Pol (1967) imho.

Same thing happened with me and The Driller Killer last night, in fact, I can't remember the last time I made it to the end without falling asleep

@Rik: The only differnece being that "Driller Killer" - for all its faults- it's actually worth watching

I guess my late night film watching capaticity is alarmingly shrinking... or I should switch to a stronger dose of coffee...

Definitely, it just seems that every time I put it on I fall asleep half way through

PONTYPOOL. Fun words as virus film which plays not unlike TALK RADIO but with a mad doctor and more blood.

PIN. The first 30 minutes or so of this have all the makings of a scumbag classic with various scenes showing:children reading porn mags, a nurse shagging a life size anatomy doll whilst a child looks on and finally a prepubescent girl saying she going to have loads of sex when she's older! It settles down after that into a fairly standard split personality, loon on the loose story. Bizarre attitudes to sex keeps getting a look in every now and then, such as a doctor giving his 15 year old daughter an abortion and asking her slightly older brother to stay in the room as it will be educational! And said brother reading his sister and her boyfriend poems about incest and rape. It's all a bit wonky but very commercial at the same time and never fulfils the promise of out and out weirdness suggested by it's beginning.

WITCHFINDER GENERAL. One of my all time favourite films now looking truly amazing on Blu-ray.

Arizona si scateṇ... e li fece fuori tutti (English: Arizona Colt Returns) | 1970 | Italy/Spain

Very formulaic and rather dull western, only lightened slightly by the insanely preposterous music and the cast, including Anthony Steffen. Not much to see here although I did rather enjoy the character of Double Whiskey played by Roberto Camardiel (although others find his character irritating). If it weren't released by Koch Media or having had an interest in spaghetti westerns in general, I probably wouldn't have bothered. Perhaps the result of DVD and companies dedicated to releasing obscure westerns for fans like us mean that, sometimes, we will end up watching films that really aren't terribly good.

Watched the Koch Media R2 DVD from Germany. I had a hell of a time finding the English subtitles - both the cover and the menu both deny all knowledge of English captions. I started the film set on Track 2 yet the dialogue wasn't translated. I then had to cycle through every single subtitle track until I eventually found the English subtitles, which aren't even listed until after the title sequence!

As for the DVD - it's a decent release, although not fantastic. The picture quality is almost always very watchable if not superb and there are only a few very short sequences where there's a very noticeable degrading in quality and they soon pass. There are two interviews and a trailer, but none of them are English-friendly. A shame, as it would have been interesting to hear what the people involved in the film say about it.

It's a very forgettable western aside from the title sequence. The DVD is OK, but it wasn't half a nuisance finding those subtitles!
