Near Dark Disc Special DVD

 

Near Dark is a 1987 USA horror thriller by Kathryn Bigelow.
With Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright and Lance Henriksen. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Passed 18 uncut by the BBFC for cinema release but was cut for VHS. The cuts were waived for DVD. Uncut in the US

Summary Notes

A young man reluctantly joins a travelling "family" of evil vampires, when the girl he'd tried to seduce is part of that group.

This is a masterpiece of a film from director Kathryn Bigelow. It has been described by Ms Bigelow as a story of two families, a daylight family and a night family; others have called it a cross between a horror film, an action film and a western. It is a recorded fact that Ms Bigelow had wanted to make a western, but because westerns weren't popular at the time, it was decided to turn it into a horror film with a basic western feel.

This film is thoroughly enjoyable. One of the greatest vampire movies ever, though interestingly the term vampire is never used in the film itself.

Summary Review: Necromantic Revenge

A schoolgirl is raped by three low-lifes, and is then blackmailed by her attackers to keep her quiet. Desperate for revenge, she makes contact with a necromancer, who promptly takes care of the boys using her magic powers.

Definitely a B movie but plenty of reviewers have enjoyed the film on these terms.

The New York Ripper is a 1982 Italian horror by Lucio Fulci.
With Jack Hedley, Almanta Suska and Howard Ross. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Banned by the BBFC for 1984 cinema release. Subsequent VHS/DVD release are cut by about 30s

Summary review:  Darkest and goriest

The New York Ripper was a great Italian horror film from Lucio Fulci, the film was filled with plenty of gruesome death scenes and lots of sleaze, sex and nudity in fact its probably one of the sleaziest Italian horror flicks ever seen.

When an old man finds a prostitute's severed hand under the Brooklyn Bridge the police decide to do a little investigating. It seems that the victim was heard speaking to a strange duck-voiced man. As the murders add up the police detective who's investigating the case recruits a psychology professor to help find out who this Donald Duck voiced maniac could be

This is a typical Fulci flick which means that the plot gets thinner during the course of the film and the bad acting which was adequate especially for this type of film could have been better but that's not important, if your a hardcore Fulci or exploitation fan then you'll obviously love this as the death scenes were quite brutal and very nasty.

One of Fulci's best.

Shameless commented:

  • The version includes 3 minutes of footage not in the previous Shameless release and 15 seconds of footage not in the Blue Underground Blu-Ray. The BBFC cuts have been implemented by substitution and do not effect the running time.

See  article from  brutalashell.com : Admirable Cutting

  • Shameless have made great attempts to mask the cut best that they can. The still-offensive scene that the BBFC refuses to budge on, the death of the prostitute Kitty, is fairly apparent, but Shameless has done an admirable job in editing it so that it doesn't stand out too sorely from the rest of the film.

NF713

Link Here
  • Enemy of the State
  rejected 73:14s BDSM video by China Hamilton (Mista Solutions)

Rejected in 2009 with the BBFC justification:

NF713 takes the form of an extended sequence in which a man tortures a woman psychologically, physically and sexually. The woman is bound and restrained throughout and the man in question is in a position of absolute power and control over her. The man tortures the woman in order to make her confess her crimes against an unnamed 'State' but his ultimate aim is to break her down and make her fully compliant, eradicating her individuality and making her a mere number, 'NF713'. The man employs a variety of techniques ranging from invasive questioning about her body and her sexual life to genital torture with forceps and electricity, makeshift waterboarding, beatings and forced urination. The torture is unremitting and takes up the majority of the work's 73 minute running time. Throughout large sections the woman is naked or semi-naked and her nudity is focussed upon, particularly in the later portions of the work. The work concludes with a series of black and white stills of the woman, bound and restrained.

In the BBFC's view, the primary purpose of NF713 is to sexually arouse the viewer at the sight of a woman being sexually humiliated, tortured and abused. As such it constitutes a 'sex work', which is defined by the BBFC's Guidelines as a work whose 'primary purpose is sexual arousal or stimulation'. The focus on the woman's naked, humiliated body together with the conventional BDSM aspects of the later part of the work lend credence to the view that sexual arousal is its primary intent, as do the closing series of black and white stills which strongly resemble conventional erotic fetish photography. The BBFC operates a strict policy on sex works and does not issue classification to such works if they depict non consensual sexual activity (whether real or simulated), the infliction of pain or physical harm (whether real or simulated) or sexual threats, humiliation or abuse that do not form part of a clearly consenting role-playing game. NF713focuses exclusively on these elements of non-consensual activity, pain, humiliation and abuse and takes the form of a dramatic scenario in which the viewer is invited to believe that what is being shown is 'real'. Unlike many BDSM works it is not apparent that what is occurring is part of a consensual role play where the roles are clearly set out and, in any case, the Guidelines preclude the kind of strong abuse on offer here, even if consent is established.

Even if one were to take the view that the primary purpose of NF713 is to explore the nature of torture in dramatic form, the work would still be in clear breach of the BBFC's Guidelines and policies on sexual violence. The unbroken sequence of sexual torture and humiliation means that the work runs the risk (whether intentionally or unintentionally) of eroticising sexual violence and thereby causing harm to viewers. The work invites the audience to relish sight of – and be sexually aroused by - a restrained and helpless woman being sexually molested, humiliated and tortured. Such a complete focus on sexual violence, together with the elements of eroticism provided by the nudity and semi-nudity of the female victim, runs a real risk of eroticising sexual violence in a potentially harmful and dangerous manner.

The BBFC considered the possibility of cuts. However, given the extent of unacceptable material and the pervasive theme of sexual violence and sexual threat, cuts were not considered a viable option on this occasion.

See article from nikiflynn.com : I am Not a Number

I've just spent the last few days being tortured and interrogated for Control & Reform Productions. The film is called Enemy of the State [Since renamed to NF713] and it's the dark brainchild of China Hamilton and me.

It's somewhere between Closet Land and 1984 - but with no faking of the torture scenes. It's set in a non-specific police state and I've been arrested for distributing anti-State pamphlets. As such, I no longer warrant a name; I'm simply NF-713. My soft-spoken interrogator gradually convinces me to cooperate through various kind and caring methods, as he only wants to help me. Help comes in various forms, as does corrective treatment:

Bastinado, back whipping, breast whipping, electric shocks, hydrotherapy , medical torture, brainwashing, force-feeding… Except for the use of a small whip in one scene, my bottom was actually spared. (How's that for a first?) I was wrecked by the end of the shoot, still crying after the cameras stopped rolling.

Niki Flynn also speaks at length about the BBFC rejection notice: R is for "rejected"

The British Board of Film Censors has just examined my naked, humiliated body in exhaustive detail and declared it potentially harmful and dangerous.

While I'm not too surprised the film didn't get an 18 certificate, I'm actually fairly disturbed by some of the alarmist language in the rejection note.

The note describes the unremitting torture inflicted throughout the film, making it sound far worse and more graphic than it actually is. Frankly, in the cut submitted to the BBFC there is very little actual abuse shown and the focus is mostly on the psychological aspects of interrogation and the resulting Stockholm Syndrome. But they felt its primary intent was to sexually arouse the viewer and as such it's a sex work and the non-consensuality makes it unsuitable for the British public, who are apparently likely to become rapists and torturers after viewing such a dangerous film.

  2. Just after the bar fight, before Seagal kicks down the door, a shot of the young couple in bed heating drugs was removed.

His friend the doctor talks him into marrying again to help heal his slowly-rotting mind, which he does--but are the doctor's orders really what he needs?

Review from US Amazon : Unmitigated winner

I loved The Night Flier . This movie has it all in spades: sleazy characters deeply developed, a massively scary vampire, and gore ramped up to insane levels. Miguel Ferrer slams it out of the park as the cynical, world-weary Richard Dees, a journalist so fed up with the nightmares of humanity that he formulates the personal philosophy Never publish what you believe, and never believe what you publish in order to keep his emotional distance.

The picture succeeds because King, and by extension the filmmakers, rework the vampire mythos in a fresh way. This story rightly equates trash media with vampirism, and you never know who the real blood feeder is in the film.

Aside from the social messages in the film, The Night Flier also boasts one of the scariest looking vampires we've ever seen in a movie. That final showdown between Dees and Renfield, when the vampire finally shows the reporter his true face, will make you shudder.

I highly recommend this movie to fans of the vampire film genre. Heck, I recommend this film to anyone who wants to watch a genuinely scary film. The Night Flier is an unmitigated winner.

See article from dvdbeaver.com :

Although advertised as Uncut there may be some controversial scenes absent from this Blu-ray release. This includes a scene where Britt Ekland disrobes, gets into bed with Mark Lester and cuddles with him.

Thanks to Braintree:

The scene in question is included in the Blu-ray but after it starts the old footage showing the section where Ekland gets into bed with Lester - and she's clearly naked - has a montage placed over that bit although the soundtrack continues just as it does in the full version.

The original US VHS was the drastically shortened version and was not very good quality. Substance went onto release a DVD with 2 versions on. One was the short version and the other was the most complete version ever and includes the controversial moments missing from the Blu-ray although both versions on the DVD are very obviously transferred from a domestic tape source.

Once I alerted VCI to the missing footage the guy in charge did confirm that they had searched high and low for the best possible source and while the Blu-ray doesn't look as good as a regular 35mm film would, its the first time the film has looked anything close to being official.

It's still worth getting for it's notoriety but a shame that VCI didn't look at the DVD beforehand - they could then at least have added the footage albeit in far lesser quality. As its a Limited Edition and unlikely to appear elsewhere, you should get it while you can if you have the slightest interest in it.

Summary R eview: Pretty Grim

A mad scientist attempts to cure his son's leukemia by doing the first ape-to-human heart transplant. He decides to put a gorilla's heart into the lad and orders his flunky to prepare the gorilla! . There is actual footage of a graphic open heart surgery inserted in the ape operation scenes. This of course causes the boy to turn into a big stinky man-ape...

The film is a very cheap Mexican 'horror' and it is pretty grim.  And really most of the film is so comic book and likeable, dammit, that you can forgive the rather shoddy idea of using said transplant footage as a main point of sale.

People say that really bad films are funny to watch because they are so bad. I have only found this to be the case with one film before now, Death Wish 3, but now Night Of The Bloody Apes has become one of my pet films. A desert island treasure.

The BBFC commented in the Annual Report for 2012:

The film features strong violence, including stabbings and a scalping. The film also includes scenes of sexual violence as women's breasts are exposed and the beast appears to maul his victims. These scenes appear dated and carry little erotic charge by contemporary standards and so the BBFC classified the film 18 without cuts.

In 1999 the video was released on the Satanica label, in a version that was obviously taken from Vipco's planned cut version (Vipco's logo remains). This time the distributor removed every single violent scene before submitting it to the censors. Strangely the scene where the doctor assistant is killed contains several shots of a completely different character being killed, whose demise doesn't happen until a few scenes later in the film.

No Cert   UK: In 1993 there was a mysterious uncut Vipco version. It was nominally slated as pre-cut but somehow got a limited unsanctioned uncut release. It was withdrawn within days.

Thanks to Adrian:  Withdrawn Within Days

I can elaborate slightly on the Vipco release. I remember a piece in the Darkside saying that if you bought the video in July (1993) it would be uncut, this was a couple of months after they reviewed the cut version, I expected it to be re-released cut but I don't think it ever was.

I spent a couple of years trying to track one down without success, I was told it was never released although I still believe it was albeit briefly. I finally picked up a review copy a couple of years later; from the outside it looks like the other Vipco releases of the time but has release details etc on the inside of the insert, and a computer printed (dot matrix) label. The film has an on-screen clock running throughout and is cut to ribbons; I think it ran a few seconds longer than the Satanica release but I couldn't vouch for this. It has an official BBFC 18 certificate despite the BBFC website not having an 18 for this film until 1999. The release details inside the sleeve list the release date as 26th July 1993 so it was withdrawn within days. This is the only copy I have ever seen on Vipco and I've never even met anyone who's seen another, I reckon the old Iver pre-cert is probably easier to find than this.

79:19s UK: Released uncut on pre-cert video for:

It was released nearly uncut in January 1983 by Iver Film Services. By November 1983 it had been listed as a video nasty and suffered a successful prosecution. It remained on the list throughout the panic and so became one of the collectable DPP 39s.

Thanks to Chris:

This Redemption DVD is slightly longer than the nearly uncut IVER pre-cert tape as there are at least two extra bits not in the IVER (IFS) tape. These were probably not in the tape due to print damage but at least they're in the DVD. These are:-

  • 42 minutes - After the green-dress wearing female has been ravaged in the park it cuts to the professor and his assistant pulling up and taking the body of another girl out of their car. We then cut back to the green-dress woman getting up with bushes all over her and looking around. The IVER tape misses out the doctor in the car as well as the green-dressed female recovering from the ordeal - approx 1 minute.

  • 74 minutes - There is an extra brief shot in the DVD of the monster running off to the left after he takes the heroine down to the floor in the park. In this shot, you can see the studio and a ladder at the corner of the screen - approx 10 seconds.

Banned as a video nasty in 1983. Later heavily cut for 1984 VHS and the cuts continued to the 2004 DVD. Uncut and MPAA R rated in the US.

Summary Review: Cheap

Another film that is something like an urban legend: being banned in countries like Germany or Norway and also very hard to find. The reputation of Night of the Demon is much more interesting than the movie itself!

The story is simple: a professor and some students travel to the dark forests to investigate some cruel murders which were caused by a Bigfoot-like monster that looks like Chewbacca from Star Wars . A feeble minded woman who lives in a lonely hut plays an important role in the solution of the mystery.

Well, the acting is bad, the F/X are pretty cheesy and only the many murders featured in this flick will keep you away from falling asleep! These deaths however are pretty are gory and violent, so fans of splatter movies won't be disappointed!

Summary Notes

On the night of Halloween, 10 teens decide to go to a party at an abandoned funeral parlor. "Hull House", rumored to be built on an evil patch of land & underground stream, is the place. While starting the party, the teens gather around a big mirror to perform a seance...BIG MISTAKE. They awaken some evil force and find themselves trapped and taken over one by one. Now it's a battle for who can survive and cross over the stream before going to hell....

Rated as something of a B movie gem. A good mix of suspense, humour and horror, something along the lines of Evil Dead. Good special effects and notable contributions from Linnea Quigley and Amelia Kinkade.

The patriarch of a wealthy family fears that he will show up one day in vampire form. Should this happen, he warns his family not to let him back in his house, no matter how much he begs them.

Summary Review : Groundbreaking

As with any other horror genre, the groundbreaking zombie movie is the best. Night of the Living Dead is a cult gem that has inspired every zombie movie after it, with its low-budget look and cast of excellent, unknown actors. And, of course, the flesh-eating undead who are rising to kill the living.

Originally filmed in murky black-and-white, Romero manages to make this film feel creepy even when the zombies aren't there. Creepy, innovative and bizarre.

Now, nearly 50 years after the original release, a never-before-seen sequence is about to be restored.

George Romero said at the Monster Mania horror convention that a once-lost 16mm work print has finally been found.

The work print, which turned up when elements were being gathered for a brand new restoration of the film contains roughly 9-minutes of footage that has never before been released. It was cut from the film not by Romero, but rather by the original distributor. An convention attendee said:

This was a scene that takes place at the jump cut in the basement, including the largest zombie scene in the film.

Review from UK Amazon : High Body Count

Night Screams like a typical teen slasher movie in which you watch to do the body count. And the body count in this flick reaches double digits.

As if that is not enough, the film started with this ill fated couple watching a horror film in which nubile females are offed by a fencing sword. Perhaps they are going for triple digits?

Anyway, basically, David, the high school football hero who have to take medication for hyperactivity decided to invite some friends over to his parent's palatial home when they went out to dinner (and it must be a loooooong dinner). And guess what, someone started to knock off the party goers, and in true slasher fashion, everything on the list is used: axe to head, electrocution, poison gas, strangulation, plastic bag suffocation...and yes, even the reliable knife in the back. And of course, in between killings, we get to watch David's parents wine and dine and started to get suspicious when they couldn't get through to the house via telephone.

Ultimately, Night Screams is standard fare....the acting is average (okay, so it is not Shakespeare), the gore effects is okay. But it is not a scary movie, it is very predictable and you know when somebody is about to "get it". But if you are in for a film with a high body count, this one is it.

Summary Review: Decent Acting

T his film borrowed heavily from Last House on the Left , but Night Train Murders is the better of the two. Good production values, excellent cinematography, an Ennio Morricone score, decent acting and a tight script .

The first third of the film introduces the main characters, most of whom seem to be prone to indulging in one perversion or another.

The "defilement" section of the film is a gripping, harrowing affair that escalates in viciousness before climaxing in a very brutal fashion.

The final act does not live up to the scenes that precede it. The director's desire to keep from glamorizing violence is probably why the ending feels somewhat restrained.

Also, Barker shot additional scenes with David Cronenberg's Decker character to flesh out his mentality. The excised footage consisted of some very graphic gore during the climax, disturbing images in the monsters' lair and quite a bit of "unnecessary" character development.

There were also some strange sexual themes between the monsters and Boone that wound up on the cutting room floor.

Prior to its theatrical release was severely cut for violence by both the MPAA and the Universal Pictures studio. Amongst the scenes that were cut are:

  • the disco shootout which originally had Wufgar shooting and killing more people, and

  • Wufgar's death scene in the ending which was almost completely cut out. An original uncut scene showed Wufgar getting shot five times (instead of twice) in slow-motion by DaSilva, and in the end, the final sixth shot hit him in the head blowing his brains out.

There has never been an uncut version released, so this is the best available version.

Janet is a young student at a private school; her nights are troubled by horrible dreams in which she sees her mother, who is in fact locked in an insane asylum, haunting her. Expelled because of her persistent nightmares, Janet is sent home where the nightmares continue.

This is one of the best of Hammer's horror/thrillers. It is more than likely overlooked because it does not have an major stars in it.

Imaginative production, courtesy of Hammer regulars Freddie Francis and Jimmy Sangster, makes it a compelling mystery oozing with a Gothic atmosphere.

Summary Review: Funtime groceries in spades

An airplane exposed to radiation lands, and blood drinking zombies emerge armed with knives, guns and teeth! They go on a rampage slicing, dicing, and biting their way across the Italian countryside.

Undeniably trashy though this film is, it delivers the funtime groceries in spades. We have copious amounts of zombie action tarted up with wonderfully gratuitous topless shots and barking mad dialogue.

Action highlights include an attack on the TV station that results in the wholesale slaughter of a troop of appalling workout dancers jumping about in leotards. As well as exploitative breast baring this scene has some great gory violence as our prancing fools are sliced up.

The music by Stelvio Cipriani is also wonderful stuff. Filled with those familiar bass beats and electronic goodness that is uniquely Italian.

Films like this exist for one reason only (well two if you count making money) and that's to entertain, and entertain is what Nightmare City certainly does. Simply and unpretentiously as only 80's Italian exploitation cinema can.

Summery Review: Gripping

An orphaned teenager finds himself being dominated by his aunt who's hell-bent on keeping him with her...at all costs.

It seems rather strange that the the director of the I Love Lucy TV series could ever make something on the DPP's list of banned movies, but that's exactly what happened to William Asher's 1981 feature. Despite several undoubtedly shocking scenes this seems particularly unfair, as it is actually a gripping and well made horror thriller, which was even nominated for a Saturn Award as Best Low Budget Film of the Year.

Thank to Dave:

I recently watched the 2 disc box set of A Nightmare on Elm Street which they say is cut to the death of the girl Tina via a blood splash as she hits the bed. The scene plays out on R2 Turkish release. When Tina hits the bed we see the blood spurt all over her shocked boyfriend Rod. A pretty tame and lame MPAA cut by any standards to make an R and obviously it never offended Turkish censors for this new uncut DVD release! The A geyser of blood spurting up from Glen's bed is also intact in this Turkish release

  • The MPAA required some toning down of the gorier scenes. Most famously, the death of Taryn (switchblade toting punk girl). Originally Freddy injected her with heroin to the degree the top of her head blew out. The subtle tone down is kind of obvious when watching the film, as it fades to white before we're shown the results of Freddy's actions.

Summary Review: Witty Freddy

Freddy Krueger returns once again to terrorize the dreams of the remaining Dream Warriors, as well as those of a young woman who may know the way to defeat him for good.

While things may have become a little predictable by the fourth Freddy film, this episode is one of the best of the series. The film delivers some deliciously creative deaths and witty repartee a la Krueger. It bolsters and redefines the balance between what has been and what will be, keeping the series fresh while maintaining the overall continuity.

An uncut version, or as near as dammit, was released in the UK in November 2015 but was soon withdrawn presumably for a lack of BBFC paperwork. However the BBFC certificate was published shortly after and the DVD went back on sale.

Summary Review: Great Slasher Movie

A mental-patient, who is troubled with horrible nightmares, has escaped from his hospital. Now on the streets he can't help killing innocent people. But there is one family he is more than interested in and when he tries to kill them, he finds that it's not that easy.

An underrated and under recognized slasher film of the early 1980s.

The plot is very interesting and is not at all a typical "slasher by numbers" flick, and is not predictable. There gore is pretty insane and gruesome, and Tom Savini was the make-up effects consultant. There is a tense, uneasy feeling throughout the film, and some very memorable scenes showing how disturbed the killer is, like the part at the peep show in NYC where he gets so aroused he has a seizure. Pretty crazy stuff.

Highly recommended!

  • 2015 88 Films R0 Blu-ray
  • 2015 88 Films R0 DVD at UK Amazon released on 30th November

88 Films say in promotional material:

Finally unleashed in the UK, uncut and uncensored, for the first time since VHS (back when the distributor of this bloodthirsty HALLOWEEN cash-in was imprisoned for 18 months just for daring to unleash it!).

Thanks to Simon and Braintree:

The Code Red DVD and BD truncated the scene where a young boy finds a dead girls body in an abandoned house and is subsequently grabbed from behind by the killer. Instead it cuts just as you see the shadow moving behind then you hear him scream off camera.

Some of those missing seconds have been restored by 88 Films, but not quite all of them.

This scene is on the old Dutch VHS, but that version misses some dialogue out from elsewhere. So, a truly complete version of the uncut print is difficult to find.

The fact that there are some pre-cuts made the BBFC decision a little easier to grant a certificate as this version is cut more than the banned video nasty version. It still took several viewings by the BBFC before the decision was reached.

Video Nasty 85:51s UK: Released on pre-cert video for:
  • 1982 Oppidan VHS

This version is said to be more complete than the cinema release with the restoration of about 1 minute of material.

The video was banned as a video nasty in July 1983. Perhaps something to do with  promotional material such as the distribution of vomit bags and guess the weight of a human brain in a jar. The video remained on the list throughout the panic and so became one of the collectable DPP39s

One of the victims of the video nasty panic was David Hamilton-Grant, the owner of Oppidan, who was jailed for 18 months under section 2 of the OPA.

Sho Kosugi made some very entertaining Ninja movies in the 80s. This is NOT one of them. Perhaps you've seen Enter the Ninja , Revenge of the Ninja , or Ninja III: The Domination ? Well, DON'T expect that level of quality from this film. The incomprehensible story is a waste of time. The sole enjoyable scene involves Sho fighting off four Kung-Fu midgets.

As for the DVD itself... Oh boy, how can I say this... It is simply the WORST looking AND sounding DVD I've ever bought. It is pan-and-scan and is frequently so DARK it is hard to tell what is going on.

976-Evil Blu-ray

976-EVIL is a 1988 USA comedy horror by Robert Englund.
Starring Stephen Geoffreys, Patrick O'Bryan and Sandy Dennis. BBFC link IMDb
A long version was cut by the BBFC for 1988 18 rated cinema release and the follow up 1989 VHS. The 1991 VHS and 2002 were pre-cut for an 18 rating. A shorter version was released in the US with an R rating but is generally noted as uncut. There is also a longer TV version but the extra material doesn't add anything.

Summary Review

Given a boost from the delightfully manic performance of Stephen Geoffreys, 976-EVIL is a tidy little thriller served up by screenwriter Brian Helgeland and director Robert Freddy Krueger Englund.

Geoffreys plays a nerdish teenager who gets picked on all the time, a la Carrie White. He finds a vengeance via a telephone service called 976-EVIL which gives him satanic powers to wreak vengeance on those who have wronged him.

While there are some weaknesses in the plot, 976-EVIL has some chilling moments and Geoffreys is effectively cast. Sandy Dennis also makes an impression as his somewhat eccentric mama.

Set in Italy, the film follows the lives and interactions of two boys/men, one born a bastard of peasant stock (Depardieu), the other born to a land owner (de Niro). The drama spans from 1900 to about 1945, and focuses mainly on the rise of Fascism and the peasants' eventual reaction by supporting Communism, and how these events shape the destinies of the two main characters.

99 Women is a   Liechtenstein/Spain/Italy/West Germany/UK prison film by Jesus Franco.
With Maria Schell, Luciana Paluzzi and Mercedes McCambridge. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Banned in the UK by the BBFC and later cut. Uncut elsewhere as the Director's Cut. There is also a French Version with hardcore inserts.

Summary Notes: A bit disappointing

The newest batch of detainees arrives at a remote women's prison. The fortress-like prison is ruled with an iron hand by Thelma Diaz (Mercedes McCambridge), a woman who has no qualms against death or torture. But when a new state official takes notice of the body count coming out of the prison, Diaz must prove her ability and hide the truth. As the powers that be turn up the pressure it sets up a daring escape by several of the ladies.

"Women in prison" flicks can be a mixed bag. Many offer the usual softcore action (usually of the lesbian variety) and / or nasty torture sequences that often exploit. But 99 Women doesn't really offer too much of either. 99 is actually more artistic than most of the "W.I.P." films that I've seen and as a result it comes off as a bit bland. The photography is fine but with most of the action taking place indoors the camera-work is not flashy. The acting is pretty decent but the script is a bit "talky" in an unnecessary way.

The softcore action is not awfully titillating since many of the scenes are shot in an "artistic" fashion the X-rated version does offer some hardcore inserts but you can easily tell they were added much latter since they don't match. "99 Women" has some style but not a lot of substance. A bit disappointing.

Summary Review: Cult Following

Set in the cold war, a Russian scientist trying to defect to the west (via Sweden) with his top secret formula which, so we're led to believe could potentially shift the balance of power to the Russians if they were able to decipher it. Russians trick him into believing that he has been flown into Sweden where he can complete his work in safety. The CIA resolve to send in a squad of Swedish Ninja to retrieve him from behind enemy lines.

The Ninja Mission has developed a bit of a cult following around the world. In fact one of the highest grossing films Sweden has ever created. The film contains countless slow-motion battles and tones and tones of splatterific blood, but the ninja often fall back on semi automatic weapons to take care of business rather than the martial arts skills.

Other reviewers place the film in the middling bracket.

Summary Review : Fantastic

A ninja-for-hire is forced into fighting an old nemesis who is bent on overthrowing the Japanese government. His nemesis is also the leader of a group of demons each with superhuman powers.

Ninja Scroll is usually one of the first anime films people see along with Akira and Ghost in the Shell , and with good reason too as it's fantastic!

The plot is very good, it moves along at a sensible pace with a good balance between dialogue and action and unfolds cleverly, giving the viewer snippets of what's going on along the way and piecing it together thoroughly at the end.

The film fully deserves it's 18 certificate as Ninja Scroll is very violent and has many other scenes and themes of an adult nature as a warning to those who decide to watch it lightly.

  • The first cut occurs during the scene where Tessai kills the ninjas in the forest. A scene where all the ninjas simultaneously throw Shurikens at Tessai has been cut.
  • The next cut occurs during the scene where Tessai sexually assaults Kagero. He rips off her top and proceeds to lick her breasts, legs, and crotch. She then wakes up and he grabs her throat and says 'Shut up and perhaps I'll let you live just a little bit longer. Don't let it cross your mind that I wouldn't mind raping a dead girl'
  • The only other cut is made to a close up of the Poison Shiuriken as it impales Jubei.

The BBFC further commented in the Annual Report covering 2014:

The BBFC sought assurances as to how the scene was filmed and, although the company confirmed that some precautions were taken to help minimise injury, such as putting rubber caps over claws, it was determined that the scene still involved cruel goading to fury.

Summary Review: Magical Powers

Three martial-arts students search for the Golden Ninja Warrior, a statue reputed to have magic powers.

The endless fight scenes are expertly choreographed and carried out with a gusto you never saw from the likes of Michael Dudikoff in his American Ninja films -- fights just seem to happen for almost no apparent reason, rarely advancing the plot or serving any purpose other than ninja action for its own sake. But do we care? Not at all!

Ninja movies can be hit or miss, and this one's a definite hit. It's outrageous,

Summary Review: Ninja Possessed

An evil ninja attempts to avenge his death from beyond the grave, by possessing an innocent woman's body.

Mixes martial arts with The Exorcist like horror. The horror elements thrown on screen are simply laughable, but the film works as a mindless action/martial arts flick.

The fight scenes are well-choreographed and exciting, and the film is never boring.
