Beach of the War Gods is a 1973 Hong Kong/Taiwan action war by Yu Wang.
With Yu Wang, Fei Lung and Yeh Tien. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Cut by the BBFC for 1973 cinema release. Uncut in the US

Summary Review: Visually Stunning

The famous swordsman Hsia Feng gathers five other fighters and rallies the local fishermen to fight off a band of Japanese pirates.

Since this is a Golden Harvest production the sets, costumes and props are well made. The directing by Wang Yu is superb, his visual style of camera angles and the use of slow-motion is just like the movies are made today. The fight-choreographing is sharp, and visually stunning.

Beach Red DVD Cornel Wilde

Beach Red is a 1967 USA war drama by Cornel Wilde.
Starring Cornel Wilde, Rip Torn and Burr DeBenning. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
The 1967 X rated cinema release was cut by the BBFC. UK home video releases are now uncut.

Promotional Material

Cornel Wilde produced directed and starred in this sincere, hard-edged look at World War II that doesn't flinch from the horrors of battle. The action takes place during a single American campaign to take an island held by the Japanese.

The usual cliché characters are replaced by believable portrayals, such as the captain (Wilde) who loves his wife but hates the war, the sergeant (Rip Torn) who gets sadistic pleasure out of battle, the minister's son (Patrick Wolfe) who keeps remembering the girl he left back home and the Southern illiterate (Burr DeBenning) who finds a place for himself in the Marines.

The Beast in Heat is a 1977 Italian Naziploitation by Luigi Batzella
With Macha Magall, Gino Turini and Edilio Kim.
YouTube icon IMDb
Banned as a video nasty in 1983. Not released in the UK since. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.

Summary Review: The Good Old Days

A beautiful, nefarious senior female SS officer/doctor (Magall) creates a genetic, mutant human Beast (half man/half beast). The Beast is a rapacious, squat, mongoloid sex fiend which she uses to torture and molest female prisoners while the Nazis watch. The vertically challenged beast is kept on a diet of mega-aphrodisiacs. There is plenty of sadistic titillations, gore and nudity in this Nazi sub-genre exploitation flick.

Ahhh, the good old days when absolutely nothing was safe or sacred to the exploitation movie merchants.... Here we have, in my opinion, probably the most tasteless example of the Naziploitation picture, a genre that more or less died shortly after this "movie".

Anyway, about the movie. For the uninitiated, start with Ilsa - She Wolf of the SS . If you can "enjoy" that bit of nastiness, then perhaps consider taking on this "unique" take on a forgotten film genre. Just don't watch it with your mom or girlfriend or aunt or grandma etc...

US: The XXX Version is uncut and MPAA Unrated for:

The XXX Version:

  • contains alternative hardcore shots of the beast Onaf raping Sondra
  • a hardcore sex scene between Madison and Sondra
  • extra shots of Onaf's prosthetic penis.

Summary Review: Sexual Energy

Without stating the obvious, the film is a mess. But that's where the fun begins. There is no real telling of what is happening, but one might surmise some of the possibilities. Ultimately this film is riding the coattails of two other films: The Beast (La Bete) and Star Wars . How you might imagine to combine these two films into one heap of psuedo-science-fiction with a touch of pornography? Its not easy, and watching this is not very easy either.

There are hardcore scenes in this version, but its really not erotic or sexually interesting. While the film is already cut-up to an incomprehensible mess, the hardcore footage does not help matters much either.

US: The Unrated Version from Severin contains alternative softcore shots to the XXX Version. See pictorial cuts details from

  • 2010 Argent/Shameless R0 DVD

This version is based upon the XXX Version but the 'real' hardcore was pre-cut. However it is slightly better than the Unrated Version in that:

  • The beast raping Sondra is extended with some extra softcore material rescued from the hardcore version.
  • There are extra shots of Onaf's prosthetic penis.

Summary Notes

A gang of six wealthy, well-dressed and well-spoken hoodlums break into a married couple's house and rape the wife while forcing the husband to watch. Thus begins a dogged investigation by a determined detective who quickly finds that their cult-like solidarity can be a serious obstacle to breaking them.

An interesting, little known and entertaining film includes scenes which are not for the squeamish even by today's standards. This caused censorship problems for the film makers when it was originally released way back in the 70s and understandably repels a lot of viewers.

UK: The Theatrical Version was passed 15 after 9s of BBFC cuts for:

The cinema version was cut in 2006 with the following BBFC comment: Distributor chose to remove scene of sexualised asphyxiation in order to achieve the requested '15'. An uncut '18' was available'.

The BBFC explained further in their 2006 Annual Report:

The film contained a brief, comic sex scene that included sight of a man being asphyxiated with a plastic bag. The clear detail, together with the potential for harm amongst teen viewers for whom the dangers of sexual asphyxiation might not be clear, seemed to warrant an '18' certificate.

But as Kirei points out, the same scene would perversely be banned from an R18 film.

Review from UK Amazon : Ultra-Fun

This is a Russ Meyers film, his final full length film as director and as usual his fascination for the female form is in abundance.

The movie is based in a small town USA and centers around the married couple of Lammar and Levonna and the sexual frustration of Levonna, here on in ensues a fantastic comedy soft porn romp in which the couple meet various colourful charactors along the journey to help cure Lammar's bedroom leanings, ending up in the fantastic Church of Rio Dio Radio where in lies Eufaula Roop, who has to be seen to be believed.

This movie was not the best received Meyers movie at the time of release however its safe to say that it has now gained cult status.

An 'unabridged version' was submitted in 2005 without BBFC cuts.

It has all the nunchakus restored but is missing some shots of James throwing up when he is fighting Tommy, and the shot of James finger being blown off. Also a bad guy getting shot is let off with less bullet wounds than in the uncut version. About 6 seconds cut. All appear in the UK video.

This seems to be the version shown on Sky

The Swedish DVD from Midget Entertainment is fully uncut

1:31s 18 95:31s No BBFC cuts listed for the 1993 Entertainment in Video version so it appears that the video has suffered pre-cuts

The duel between Tommy (Philip Rhee) and the Asian, ponytailed gladiator has been severely shortened for the U.K prints.  A lengthy segment of the fight in which the gladiator uses two pairs of silver nunchakus is missing.

The scene lasts twice as long in the uncut version, which has been shown in the past on Sky. The version currently screening on Bravo, however, appears to be the same as the video except for an extra shot of James (Tommy's native brother) having his finger blown off - which isn't in Sky's print.

See review from IMDb : Bad Film, Great Fun

I really enjoyed it, in a campy way. Tommy turns up in some rural town and steps right into a race war. Tommy is basically given reason after reason to take on guys of 4 or more and throw them through various fruit stalls, ticket offices, coffee tables, and french windows.

The gorgeous Gina Gershon does her best as a choir teacher helping Tommy out, but whenever she needs to be helpless it kinda doesn't work because she now plays such strong, female roles.

The acting and direction are seriously questionable but this film is obviously about fight scenes and they are entertaining enough, from the moment we see Gershon's house is full of glass tables, flimsy bookcases and china filled cabinets we know we are in for a treat.

Terrible, patronising attitude toward racial issues but, hey, its got a rocket launcher and plenty of flying kicks.

Review from US Amazon : Queen of Curves

The new DVD : Betty Page Bondage Queen will be a desirable addition to any Bettie Page fan but I suppose that I was expecting the whole disk to be unpublished shots of the Queen of Curves as the title suggests. The several short movies presented are black and white films taken of some of Irving Klaw's models in their undies, being bound and gagged by Klaw's sister.

Betty appears in a few and in many stills. The exclusive commentary by Bettie Page is a short written page or two, not the audio file I hoped for. I enjoyed the movies of the models in their bras and panties, dark nylons and ultra high heels as they tried to walk in them but a more truthful title for the DVD would have been Irving Klaw's Bondage and Fetish models, Featuring Bettie Page.

  rejected   The BBFC rejected the 1999 Visual Entertainment video, The Classic Films of Irving Klaw Vol 1 (of 2), which forms part of Betty Page: Bondage Queen

The BBFC stated that this video was rejected on the grounds that the Board's guidelines state that mild fetishism may be represented, but in Irving Klaw we have scenes of women trussed, bound, gagged, spanked, shackled, handcuffed, slapped, tethered and suspended. Such sequences of bondage, restraint and gagging (proffered as masturbation material) are very extensive and unacceptable. The distributor of this material has decided to re-edit two versions of Betty page's work by photographer Irving Klaw that will not breach our guidelines. We are awaiting their resubmission.

Cut by the BBFC for cinema release. Then the same version was banned as a video nasty. Passed uncut on DVD. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US but there is also a cut R rated version.

Summary Review: Fulci Lives

The Beyond is one of Fulci's best films. The film takes place in modern day Louisiana as a woman oversees the the renovation of an hotel that she inherits. Strange and gory things start to happen and poof the hotel just happens to be over one of the 7 doors to hell.

Very bloody with a slightly incoherent plot the film is a lot of fun and I suspect that no Fulci fan should be without their copy. Visually I think this is Fulci's best film (that I've seen) and the acting is what you'd expect.

Summary Review: Honest Horror

A young rich orphan loses his fiancée to voodoo doll mischief on the part of his housekeeper who is jealous of his attentions.

The film is also packed with a series of extreme gore scenes that are effective and really well-done. All of a person's fingernails are pulled out with pliers in an act of pure sadism and the corpse dismemberment is a sickening, uncompromising gore sequence as it is completely and utterly cut to pieces and dumped into acid, complete with gruesome close-ups provided of the flesh-less pieces immersed in acid.

One of the strongest films to ever get through in the European sleaze genre, it's got a lot to look forward to. Due to the subject matter and extremes presented, this is one for the strongest-willed of Exploitation fanatics, while those who have no desire for these films should avoid.

Cut by the BBFC for X rated 1970 cinema release. Cut again for 18 rated 1989 VHS. Passed 18 uncut since 2003 DVD. Uncut and MPAA NC-17 rated in the US.

Summary Review: Camp Classic

This film is a sequel in name only to Valley of the Dolls (1967). An all-girl rock band goes to Hollywood to make it big. There they find success, but luckily for us, they sink into a cesspool of decadence. This film has a sleeping woman performing on a gun which is in her mouth. It has women posing as men. It has lesbian sex scenes. It is also written by Roger Ebert, who had become friends with Russ Meyer after writing favorable reviews of several of his films.

What more could one ask for? Valley of the Dolls took itself seriously with hilarious effects. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (supposedly not related) was more of a spoof that played straight with seriously hilarious effects. Both are camp classics and at this price, this DVD is nearly impossible to pass up.

The uncut region 1 DVD is available at US Amazon
The uncut region 1 DVD is available via UK Amazon

See review from IMDb : Colorized

Fox Home Entertainment has once again attempted to improve upon a classic. BEYOND TOMORROW gets the colorizing and retitling treatment, retitling the film (BEYOND Christmas).

The company has also chopped out about 5 minutes of material from the movie. Granted, they include the material in the Extras as deleted footage, but that only begs the question, What was the point of deleting it at this time, to begin with?

Some of the deletions, such as the sequence where Arlene Terry's ex-boyfriend clashes with her new leading man, destroy the emotional impact of the showdown between the two men and Arlene during the film's finale. To first-time viewers unfamiliar with the film, the jilted lover's appearance at the end comes almost out of the blue, causing confusion as to who he is.

In spite of these alterations/deletions, the box proudly announces the film is fully restored. Sorry, Fox, but the term restoration does NOT mean alteration or condensation. And with the various advances in such technology, it is amazing to see how artificial the colorization still looks, at least on this film.
