Update from Starz Forum :

The US "R" rated video from Thorn EMI/HBO has a mixture of bits and pieces both from the edited for TV UK video release and the Dutch uncut video version.

  • Most of the dialogue is unchanged but Billy Dee Williams last line in the UK version, Maybe you are, take him home ,  is here, and not the one from the Dutch release, Get him out of here! As this alters the tone of the ending, maybe this was requested by the distributors. Also, the music at the end is a reprise of the song "New York Dolls" heard in the UK version, not the instrumental heard over the Dutch version.

Summary Review: Last for Jet Li

Fearless is inspired by the life of Huo Yuan Jia, real-life Chinese martial arts master. Jet Li plays this legendary figure, whose martial arts style and fearless fight helped the people in China regain their pride in the early 20th century when China was intimidated and humiliated by the growing Western and Japanese powers.

In Fearless Jet Li has shown his best performance since Once Upon A Time In China and the fight scenes (choreographed by Yuen Woo Ping) are all fantastic, sometimes visceral, and sometimes graceful, and always powerful. Good and smooth editing and gorgeous production designs also help greatly to create the background.

Fearless is a first-rate martial arts action film.

Director Ronny Yu reduced the length of 'Fearless' from 143 minutes to 103 minutes to speed up the pacing of the movie. The subplot with Michelle Yeoh has been cut. In the original cut the story of Huo Yuanjia is told by Miss Yang an Olympic official. In the early part of the movie Huo Yuanjia is in exile in a Thai village and to save a boy from being punished for stealing an ox, he is forced into a match with a local boxer, played by Somluck Kamsing. Ronny Yu made the cut after audiences from an internal screening criticized the film for being too slow and the Olympic sub-story being too irrelevant to the main plot.

Summary Review: Jokes and Atmosphere

The film perfectly captures the atmosphere of a snow- covered Transylvania, plagued by the sinister menace of an evil that the locals would rather keep under wraps. When the hapless Alfred (Roman Polanski) and his master Professor Abronsius (Jack MacGowran) arrive at an inn for the night, they stumble upon a community reluctant to discuss their embarrassing secret.

The exaggeratedly Jewish local innkeeper Shagal (played brilliantly by Alfie Bass) does his best to feign ignorance, as nearly all of the villagers clam up tight, but the game is afoot. Add to the recipe the beautiful innkeeper's daughter (the simply lovely Sharon Tate) with whom Alfred falls instantly in love, and the scene is set for a wonderful tale of good over evil in the twilight world of the un-dead.

There are many subtle jokes along the way, as well as some very obvious slapstick, but the lair of the vampires is truly menacing and with a haunting score to emphasise the plot, this film simply works on many levels.

The US Theatrical Version was significantly shortened. From IMDb:

This film was originally released in the United States in an edited version shortened by approximately 20 minutes. All actors voices redubbed to make them more American-sounding, the music was slightly altered and a cartoon prologue featuring Abronsius & Alfred was added. This was done by producer Martin Ransohoff without Roman Polanski's approval. Other edits included the shortening of the trip to Krolock's castle, the shots of Shagal watching the maid cleaning the floor as he stomps the sauerkraut, and Alfred searching for the mysterious voice in the castle corridors.

Upon seeing this American version, Polanski tried to have his name removed from the credits.

Summary Review: Glory Glory

An Australian answer to Emmanuelle that is a bit short on plot but seems to have hit the mark with the innocent fresh sensuality of the lovely Canadian actress, Glory Annen.

The softcore action starts off in a boarding school and then off to the almost mandatory Far East for further education.

1970 US drama by Jerry Gross

The BBFC cut the 1971 cinema release.

The original running time was 82:55s

The uncut region 1 DVD is available at US Amazon

See review from IMDb : Eurotrash

On the surface, this looks like one of those erotic 60s art-house flicks which were imported by American entrepreneurs solely for their sex content. It even possesses the de rigueur subtext exposing the moneyed class for its decadence and its exploitation of the naive masses. However, it's all a scam -- it was intentionally made in Puerto Rico by these self-same American entrepreneurs to resemble a European flick -- and quite successfully so.

The film is well enough constructed and filmed to be watchable, with plenty of nudity, though it's overly melodramatic and dully predictable for long stretches. As well, there are a couple of psychedelic sequences for Swinging Sixties buffs. The star Angelique is quite a dish and is not averse to shedding her threads at the least provocation. At the same time, the filmmakers strive to offend conservative viewers (in true pseudo-Euro style) by including a lascivious hypocritical priest among the sordid proceedings, by using a soda bottle as an erotic device, and by being a bit unsubtle about Angelique's relationship with her housecat.

Female Trouble DVD

Female Trouble is a 1974 USA crime comedy horror by John Waters.
With Divine, David Lochary and Mary Vivian Pearce. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Summary Notes

The life and times of Dawn Davenport, showing her progress from loving schoolgirl to crazed mass murderer - all of which stems from her parents' refusal to buy her cha-cha heels for Christmas. She runs away from home, is raped, becomes a single mother, criminal and glamorous model before her inevitable rendezvous with the electric chair...

It is occasionally vulgar but all for good measure and although gross out, it has a hard impact that makes you feel for the characters...and what characters they are, Aunt Ida is scene stealing.

It's basically a really dirty Carry On movie...only far classier...and arguably more enjoyable... It may offend some people.

A genuinely great film from the Pope of Trash John Waters who has to be one of my favourite directors due to him taking the piss out of everyday life and pushing humor beyond the boundaries.

Fiebre is a 1971 Argentina drama by Amando Bo.

Summary review from IMDB: Atmosphere of strangeness

In 1968 and 1969, Amando Bo and Isabel Sarli produced their three masterpieces: Carne , Fuego y Fiebre , three films that are unique in the world, three films that influenced John Waters big time and were a clear precedent to his revolutionary work.

Fiebre is an amazing piece of experimental film-making. The idea is Isabel falls in love with a horse . An so we see shots of her touching her breast over imposed with shots of the horse's organ for an hour nd a half. It sounds boring. It's not.

Bo's movies have an atmosphere of strangeness. They deserve a place in film history.

Summary Review: Rampage of Redemption

As though enough pretty young women to fill a stadium haven't already been murdered in these films, a young man under the influence of a religious cult goes on a rampage of 'redemption,' murdering countless -- what else? -- young women.

Something of a minor horror that is watchable rather than notable. The cinematic style has been likened to the British sex comedies of the time. Patrick Magee provides couple of plus points for the film.

X cert  submitted 91:33s =87:53s  UK: Passed X (18) after BBFC cuts for:
  • 1981 Derann Pre-cert VHS
  • 1972 cinema release

US: The same cut version was released for:

  • 2005 Redemption R1 DVD

From IMDb. Comparison of Derann video with uncut version shown on BBC in 2001:

  • The opening murder in the BBC version includes a more prolonged strangulation scene, as well as some further nudity as Kenny strips his dead victim (Janette Wild). There's also the sight of him removing a watch and necklace from the naked corpse, adding a (slightly out of place) petty criminal element to Kenny's religiously motivated crimes.
  • The title scenes are slightly different, the BBC version plays the title over a still shot of the killer's boots (the rest of the credits appear the same way). The Derann version plays the title over a blue box background.
  • When Kenny first plays the audio tapes back of his killings there is some cutaways to historical torture paintings. The older Derann version includes two brief shots of the same painting, the BBC version contains the same two shots but lingers on them a little longer and goes on to another shot of a second (more graphic) painting.
  • The murder of the prostitute (Terry Quinlan) in toned down in the Derann version (she's beaten around the head off-screen). The BBC version however includes some nasty shots of Kenny ramming his torch into the girl's mouth. Her death from being beaten around the head is no longer shown totally off-screen in the BBC version either.
  • The following scene where Quinlan's body is discovered in cement, is different in the two versions. The BBC version represents this scene with two shots of nudity (the actress obviously found it hard to hold her breath). The Derann version represents it with an odd, (still photograph?) close-up on the girl's face.
  • The last difference is to the 'meat-hook scene' where one of Kenny's victims (Suzanna East) initially drowned is discovered hanging on a meat hook. Both versions play the discovery slightly different, the Derann version includes a brief shot of the girl on the meat hook as well as a second shot that zooms in on the dead girls face. The BBC version begins with an additional long shot of the dead girl, and ends on a second shot, that's actually the first shot we see of the body in the Derann version but is more drawn out. The zoom shot from the Derann version isn't included in the BBC version.

Summary Review : Little Gem

Harry Mitchell, an L.A. manufacturer with a fancy car, a nice house, and a wife running for city council, has his life overturned when three masked blackmailers appear with a video tape of Harry and his young mistress. He's been set up, and they want $105,000.

I saw this in the theaters when it first came out in the 80s, not expecting much, but then - BAM! - this nasty little gem of a thriller delivers thrills in spades.

JOHN GLOVER creates one of the most chilling, yet hilarious, villains in film history - and the film's most infamous sequence - the videotape replay of Cindy's snuff-movie murder that Glover forces Scheider to watch in horror SITTING THE SAME CHAIR WHERE SHE WAS KILLED! - still never fails to disturb the viewer.

Summary Review : Disturbing Scenes

Strange entry in the list in that most of the video is taken up by talking about vengeance rather than getting on with the job.

Three escaped convicts seek refuge at the home of a black minister and his family, there the family is humiliated and beaten. When his daughter is violated the family begin to embark on some vengeance.

A film which has very little to offer other than racial hatred and some rather disturbing scenes of violence. But so became a grindhouse classic.

Summary Notes

In a small college in North Carolina, only a select few students are left to take mid terms. But, when a killer strikes, it could be everyone's final exam.

Final Exam was made at the peak of the early 80's slasher period and I'm not surprised that this one been forgotten. The intro is truly typical stuff with a teen couple making out in a car only to be killed (but in a crap off screen murder). During the next 50 minutes! or so you'll be wondering if you're actually watching a slasher as nothing happens.

A group of forest rangers go camping in the woods, and trespass into an area where a backwoods mama likes to kill people who come onto her turf.

The Final Terror wasn't a bad movie but it was a bad slasher movie. Nary a drop of blood, ok maybe a drop or 2 but WEAK kills.

Great cast .Darrel Hannah, Rachel Ward and Joe Pantoliano were virtual unknowns at the time and lend to the credibility of the cast today.

See review from IMDb : Underrated and unnoticed

This film tends to touch base on issues in several other of his films. In Vixen , the issue was marital bliss and touched on the concept of partner swapping. A similar notion is touched on in Finders Keepers in marital fidelity, and promoting the concept that no one goes unpunished.

It contains the nudity and light humor of his other flicks. It's not one of his more known films, but is worth checking out even if only once. The movie actually has a good plot to it, with senses of drama and a sense of urgency that keeps the pace going from start to finish.

Review from US Amazon : Typical B action movie

Firepower is one of those cheesy martial art movies that tries to take place in the future and the result is even more cheesiness that is just a 1980's looking future. But not all is lost. There are plenty of fights in this film, and it stars familiar faces Chad Mcqueen and Gary Daniels.

Overall, the story is ok. There is a huge surprise near the end I did not expect from a film like this.

The fights are really the only decent thing about Firepower . If you are into underground cage fighting with weapons and screaming spectators, this is that kind of movie. None of the fights are exceptional, but most are good and solid for a martial arts film. Gary Daniels is definitely more skilled in Firepower than Chad Mcqueen.

A basic martial arts film that is a typical B action movie. The setting in the future makes it suffer more than it should with all its cheesiness glory, but other than that expect an average film.

Summery Review : Don't miss this DVD

Chen Chen returns to the international compound of China only to learn of his beloved teacher's death. This is compounded by the continual racist harassment by the Japanese population in the area. Unlike his friends, he confronts it head on with his mastery of martial arts while investigating his teacher's murder.

The Bruce Lee film is famous for its legendary first nunchaku fight scene at the Japanese' training camp as Bruce shows for the first time his personal fighting tool and weapon, a pair of nunchakus. That fight scene even before nunchakus is among the greatest ever filmed since the choreography and timing is totally marvellous as the one take lasts very long without edits, and Bruce kicks and hits about ten victims during that, and the timing and stunt men had to be really sharp in order to not to get hurt for real. Also, the nunchaku fights in the film are incredible as Bruce uses his weapon without flinching an eye and with fierce look on his face. This all is even more powerful in his next film, Way of the Dragon.

  2. The film's second Nunchaku scene has also been cut. We no longer see Lee defending himself from the Japanese villain's sword, before disarming him and throwing his own weapon to the ground.
  3. A second cut to the above scene removes the bit where Lee leaps through the air delivering a kick to the villain's throat that sends him flying backward through a nearby shoji screen. Ending the fight rather abruptly.

Cut by the BBFC for cinema release and VHS. Uncut on DVD in UK and US

Summary Notes

Italy 1600: A convent of nuns are invaded by the Tarantula Sect on their annual pilgrimage. The cultists defile the place of worship, orgying in the chapel and desecrating the altar. One nun decides she can't take the religious oppression any longer and flees the convent upset that all the leaders are male.

Flavia the Heretic is different from other exploitation films. Instead of being gore and sex hidden under a thin shroud of message, Flavia the Heretic has a legitimate message (absurd as it might be at times), but gets grouped in with the sex and gore movies that the Italians are so famous for.

The movie is more than nunsploitation. None of the scenes are all that violent. Movies like Behind Convent Walls were certainly more sexually graphic and dwelt much longer on the sex scenes in attempt to make the erotic. No such attempts were made in this movie.

Summary Review: Obscure masterpiece

This film deals with the infamous exploits of grave-robbers Burke & Hare, and the university professor surgeon Dr. Knox.

This is exploitative macabre melodrama, more than a horror film; though it is more gruesome and horrific than other films of the terror genre.

This is still intense viewing today,the performances of George Rose as Burke, and Donald Pleasence as Hare, are superb, powerful & really scary, if there is anything funny about them, it is the darkest of comedy. Peter Cushing is fine as Knox (NB. Cushing is not the principal protagonist, the film revolves on several characters) the quality of the remaining cast vary, but at worst they are theatrical; which by no means mar the film.

The cinematography is first rate, and any Hammer fans amongst you might agree that the director John Gilling, who co-scripted it, never made anything else quite like this.

From IMDb. The 1960 UK distributors prepared a version with topless shots replaced by more modest footage:

  • In a tavern scene with Burke and Hare, a female extra allows her blouse to slip revealing her breasts while B&H are talking (in the UK print the blouse doesn't slip)
  • When Billie Whitelaw takes John Cairney up to her room she has a brief conversation at the foot of the stairs with a woman by an open door. In the UK print this woman is clothed - In the continental print her breasts are exposed.
  • When Cairney goes into the brothel and confronts Whitelaw various of the extras are topless in the continental version (but clothed in the UK print). The Continental print also features a couple of unique shots preceding this of topless revelry.

The BBFC then cut some violent scenes:

  • The murder of the old woman is slightly differently edited and more explicit in the Continental print (additional close-ups of her being smothered by Hare's hand).
  • The murder of Daft Jamie is slightly extended and more violent
  • The Continental version has a close-up of Burke's face when he is hanged which is missing from the UK print.

With Joe Dallesandro and Udo Kier.
YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Heavily cut by the BBFC for 1975 cinema release. Less heavily cut 1982 cinema release. Banned as a video nasty in 1984. Less cut for 1996 VHS and uncut for 2006 DVD. Uncut and MPAA X rated in the US.

Summary Revie w: Perverse

A very good film from the Warhol/Morrissey partnership. It features a decent stab at the Frankenstein legend featuring a fair few intentional laughs

Udo Kier is astounding as the mad Baron Frankenstein, Arno Juerging is great as his idiot assistant Otto, and Monique Van Vooren holds her own as Frankenstein's wife-sister, whose insatiable sexual appetite is fed by hunky Joe Dallesandro.

The quality productions values add to the package and it justifiably gets rated as one of the best campy horrors of the time.
