Mad Foxes (1982)
 
Mad Foxes (1981).

A big fav of mine from the pre cert days. I would love to see an uncut uk dvd release. It also had one of the most enticing covers going (good old Merlin video), with various descriptions of the levels of violence and the age of consent, not to mention a shot gun weilding, gimp mask wearing psycho!

It really has to be one of the most over the top films ever made and a hoot to boot!

Does anybody else feel the same way about this slice of euro sleaze, or am I just fit to be certified?

LIkely to run into trouble with the BBFC, Mr.420, due to the one scene of sexual violence. The last time they saw this film in the 80's they absolutely slaughtered it. Cuts now would be minimal.

I'm not really a fan of the film but for exploitation fans it's a treat. This is one film that not many people appear to have seen.

I agree with everything you`ve said,I have the uncut ABCDVD which looks really good.
Favourite piece of dialogue is when the bike gang go into the karate class and throw a grenade in and one of them says"Hello bastards heres a little present for you".Brilliant!

Only complaint from me is that there are too many lingering shots of male genitilia.:ack:

Quite so and TMF is just a feature length version of tit for tat with the bikers antagonising the good guy and the latter getting his own back in some way or another. The violence is hurled back and forth between both sides with no real semblance of a plot.

I seem to recall a scene where the bikers' are mourning their leader's passing and one member blubbers "I can't believe he won't be with us anymore!". Not exactly the kind of talk you would expect from a supposedly rough and tough motorcyclist.

A similar scene in Bronx Warriors did it so much better and TMF is definitely as mad as a box of frogs (or should that be foxes?)!:)

Ah!, that cover brings back lots of happy memories!

Gojirosan 4th April 2010 03:13 PM

Never seen it. It sounds glorious!

mr 420 4th April 2010 03:49 PM

Gojirosan, You quite simply HAVE to see this. Think you've seen over the top? Think again, this film is simply unique. I think im going to have to lobby this one for an upcoming shameless/arrow release!
