The Black Alley Cats

Link Here

The Black Alley Cats is a 1973 US action film by Henning Schellerup.
With Sunshine Woods, Sandy Dempsey and Charlene Miles. BBFC link IMDb

Banned by the BBFC for 1984 cinema release. Uncut in the US.

Summary Review: Crude and Tasteless

Wanting revenge on a street gang for a rape attack, four young girls get together, take kung-fu lessons, learn how to shoot, form a gang called the Black Alley Cats and search out the gang that attacked them.

It's all very cheap, crude and tasteless but the background music during the lengthy sex scenes should be of interest to fans of lounge/psych music.

1895:03s 1999 US film by James Toback (Columbia TriStar)

No BBFC cuts required to the UK cinema and video releases of 2000.

Encountered problems with the US censors and had to be cut to achieve an R rating as described below. I am not sure which version was released in the UK but it seems to be a minute longer than the US R Rated version.

Black And White is a star-studded tale of rich white kids in New York City who become obsessed with uptown hip-hop culture and eventually find themselves entangled in a murder investigation.

The scene that aroused the MPAA's concern opens the film. Bijou Phillips, Kim Matalova, and rapper Power, from the Wu-Tang Clan are getting it on in a sexy three-way make-out scene in the woods in Central Park. Unbeknownst to them, a group of boys look on. There's something dark and brooding about the setting, but all three members of this menage are clearly willing participants.

The producer speaks of the MPAA: First they say 'The scene in the park with the guy and two girls is problematic.' While they won't say 'This is what we want you to do,' of course they mean that without that scene the movie would get its R-rating. The rating was unfair. They wanted us to cut the scene and the director wasn't willing to do that.

The uncut and cut versions end up being very similar: a little less kissing between the two girls, the camera doesn't linger on an exposed bottom for quite so long there, and instead of tweaking her partner's nipple, one of the women now cups the breast instead.

All are minor changes, and the gist of the scene is still there, but nonetheless, it's been changed. Moreover, the changes appear to be arbitrary: three seconds of girls kissing is OK, seven seconds is not. Handling a breast one way is fine, but touching it another way is taboo.

Summary Review: Brilliant Giallo

Inspector Tellini investigates serial crimes where victims are paralyzed while having their bellies ripped open with a sharp knife.

Paolo Cavara's brilliant Giallo The Black Belly Of The Tarantula is definately special. The film contains a beautiful (Euro Babe) cast, that would please James Bond afficianados everywhere. It contains three Bond Girls in one film! The wonderful Claudine Auger ( Thunderball ), Barbara Bouchet ( Casino Royale ), and Barbara Bach ( The Spy Who Loved Me ), all lending shady perversity to the proceedings.

The title refers to the sadistic means in which a killer is performing on his prey. An acupuncture needle is inflamed with a paralysing poison that the killer inserts into the neck of his victim

Highly recommended to those who love weird and twisted little masterpieces that come from Italy. And the music score is to die for

Nursing his vengeance, he rises to power in New York City's Harlem. Angry at the racist society around him, both criminal and straight, he sees the acquisition of power as the solution to his rage. He performs a free-lance hit on a Mob contract to attract the attention of the head of a Mafia family. Reluctantly accepted into 'The Family,' he grows increasingly autonomous and aggressive, eventually starting a gang war.

From IMDb:

In the original theatrical version, when a wounded Tommy Gibbs is seen wandering in the slums at the film's conclusion, the film fades to the New York skyline with the caption AUGUST 22, 1972 appearing and then the end credits.

However, on European prints and the version issued by MGM on VHS and DVD, they included a scene where a street gang robs, beats, and leave Tommy for dead and then the usual skyline fade and credits.

According to Larry Cohen on the DVD commentary, he was surprised MGM used the European film negative for the DVD release. Therefore, the current MGM version is labeled as an accidental director's cut.

Summary Review: Sexploitation

A young woman travels with her partner to England on the unexpected death of her brother. Staying with her sister-in-law, she finds her companion soon drawn into a satanic cult based in the house whose rites seem to centre somewhat on large-scale sexual congress.

A poor horror film with even worse cliched ending, why the 3-star rating then? Simple. If you're looking for sexploitation in a satanic cult-themed horror film, you've hit the jackpot with BLACK CANDLES. It is surprisingly wall-to-wall sex-scenes (have your finger on the fast-forward button ready when the 'tender love scene' involving a goat appears).

Overall, 3-stars. But honestly, add 1-star on the strength of BLACK CANDLES alone if you enjoy softcore in your horror. Subtract 1-star from the 3-star rating if you actually want a good horror film with a decent ending that doesn't jerk you around.

Summary Review: Lively characters

It's time for Christmas break, and the sorority sisters make plans for the holiday, but the strange anonymous phone calls are beginning to put them on edge. When Clare disappears, they contact the police, who don't express much concern. Meanwhile Jess is planning to get an abortion, but boyfriend Peter is very much against it. The police finally begin to get concerned when a 13-year-old girl is found dead in the park. They set up a wiretap to the sorority house, but will they be in time to prevent a sorority girl attrition problem?

I suspect the 18 rating is caused by the frequent use of the C word in the obscene phone calls. There is little gore or blood and without the language this could easily have been rated 15.

Well worth purchasing for fans of a well made, well paced horror drama which keeps the viewer engaged with lively characters and a suspense filled plot.....

From cuts details on IMDb :

The "hard" print contained a brief sequence of shots of explicit penetration during the scene in which Emanuelle and Gianni first make love. These shots were performed by doubles, not by Angelo Infanti and Laura Gemser, neither of which were informed of this addition at the time.

One extra shot was also included during the tribal dance scene of many tribesmen running their hands over Emanuelle's body as she lies on the ground.

The hardcore version/Integrale is available on the Italian DVD

In her one and only screen appearance, the insanely voluptuous Sharon Lesley takes over the role of Emanuelle, who's now confined to a Manhattan psychiatric clinic with an acute case of amnesia, depraved fantasies and Daddy-delusions of the highest order. Her doctor attempts to unravel a Freudian check-list of incestuous hunger, lesbian-longings, misplaced aggressions and errant nymphomania before her traumas take permanent hold.

Sharon Lesley is a marvel to behold - a pretty face, gorgeous eyes, absolutely perfect natural breasts, a bubble-butt, curvaceous to the Nth degree. And she looks fantastic in the stylings of those wicked 70's when she's not naked.

Summary Review: Emanuelle in Egypt

The film revolves around a family of women living in Egypt. The mother (Nieves Navarro) spends her time getting it on with her native manservant and a handsome, much younger spiritual guru (Al Zombie Cliver). The older daughter gets off on teasing and tormenting the manservant when her mother's not busy with him. The younger daughter Laure (Annie Belle) also shows up, apparently returning from school. Finally, you have friends of the family played by real-life couple, Laura Gemser and Gabriele Tinti. Gemser is playing a character called Emanuelle , but she doesn't seem like the same chirpy, world-renowned photojournalist Emanuelle she plays in all the other movies.

Needless to say much softcore sex ensues--which is really the only reason watch this. Gemser looks very lovely, but she is not as good as she usually is.

Summary Notes

A dramatic presentation of the bomb blasts that rocked Bombay on March 12, 1993, displays the police investigation, amidst allegations of human rights violations, led by DCP Rakesh Maria, in tracking down the suspects, especially Bashir Khan. Bashir managed to elude authorities by re-locating to Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, and West Bengal, after finally being apprehended in Bombay. His confession and subsequent flashbacks showcases the apathy shown by authorities who refused to intervene during the destruction of the sacred Babri Masjid by Hindu Kar Sevaks, and the inability of the police to fulfill their mandate and protect the vulnerable, forcing many to flee to other locations.

Upon its initial release, Black Gravel was criticized for its honest depiction of lingering antisemitism--and the film was cut for general release.

Promotional Material

"In this gripping Cold War noir, tensions simmer between residents of a small German village and the soldiers of a U.S. military base. Postwar economic hardship has turned the town of Sohnen into a vice district. The women serve as entertainment for the GIs, while the men struggle for survival in the black market. Helmed by Helmut Käutner (Port of Freedom), Black Gravel is hardboiled cinema at its most cynical, recalling such white-knuckle thrillers as Henri-Georges Clouzot's The Wages of Fear and Jules Dassin and A.I. Bezzerides's Thieves' Highway. Upon its initial release, Black Gravel was criticized for its honest depiction of lingering antisemitism--and the film was re-edited for general release.

At the domestic screening of the film, fans were quite enraged that the word 'Hanuman' was muted from the film. The Jabari tribe in the film, that enters the first death challenge, worships an ape god called Hanuman sharing a name with an Indian monkey god as per the comic books. But this reference was omitted from the screening.

While many felt that this was CBFC's doing, our sources have told us that it is not CBFC who muted the word Hanuman but it's the distributors of the movie in India who decided to do this.

Italian director Mario Bava exploded onto the horror scene with Black Sunday. The movie succeeds fantastically at conveying a bleak atmosphere of horror.

From cuts details on IMDb : Softcore

French director Claude Mulot helmed this retelling of a Balzac-inspired tale of a struggling sculptor obsessed with a beautiful Caribbean muse in late 19th century Paris.

Mulot must have had a real budget to work with because it's all up on the screen; sumptuous gowns, top hats and tuxedos with tails, manor houses, cobblestone streets, carriages, ballroom dancing, a classy sounding score, and a bevy of beautiful unclothed females. Jones shows off her achingly beautiful body several times, and virtually all of the women in the cast strip naked at one time or another. Look for 1963's British sex scandal icon Mandy Rice Davies as one of Venus's benefactors. Mulot uses the camera and the storyline to spice up the sex scenes much more than the expected contorted positions and exaggerated huffing-and-puffing. His choice of a character's voice-over works quite well to move Black Venus along for its 80-minute running time.

As an example of what softcore porn can aspire to and be in an age of Skinemax flicks, it's well worth checking out.

The US DVD release was also heavily cut for an R rating with appreciably different cuts to the UK version which turns out to be the most complete.

  • In the opening scene where Sweet (Matthias Hues) attacks a group of thugs the UK version is the most complete. In the UK version when Hues lifts up and headbutts a thug the camera pans down the thugs face revelaing blood pouring from his mouth. In the US DVD the scene cuts away before the camera reaches his mouth. The DVD is also missing several punches to the next thugs ribs. The thug lying on the bed who gets his arm broken is cut indentically in both versions.
  • The scene where Dillon (Don Wilson) enters the dead prostitutes room is cut in the UK version. In the DVD we see a close up shot of the woman lying on the bed which is cut from the UK tape.
  • The scene where the thugs attack Shanna's house is cut on the DVD. The knife wielding thug that attacks Dillon get his arm broken in the UK tape before he is thrown through the table. On the DVD the arm break is missing.
  • The scene where Sweet attacks the two men on the street has been cut for the UK version. We should see Sweet lift up the first thug and headbutt him but this is missing from the UK tape (but surprisingly a photo of that exact scene is printed on the back of the tape).
  • The scene where Sweet kills Dillons partner is cut on both versions. Close up punches to the face have been cut from the UK version. Sweet breaking the mans neck has been cut differently on both versions. In the UK version Sweet grabs the mans head and says 'Time to...' but the remaining dialogue (presumalby 'Time to die') is missing and the man is lying on the floor with his neck broken. The DVD is also missing the neck break but all of the 'Time to die' dialogue is also missing.
  • The final martial arts scene in Dillon's apartment has been cut differently in both versions. All scenes showing Nunchaku sticks have been cut from the UK version. Various snippets of martial arts have been cut from both versions. The scene showing Sweet impaled on a sword has been cut from the DVD. In the UK version the camera pans down showing Sweet staggering about with the sword impaled through his chest and blood pouring from his mouth. The DVD cuts away before the camera reaches Sweet's chest.

You may have heard of this infamous Blaxploitation/Horror hybrid, but the real story is even more bizarre: In 1973, criminal-lawyer-turned-wannabe-monster-movie-mogul Frank R. Saletri wrote and produced this grindhouse hit about a Black soldier mortally wounded in Vietnam, transformed into a rampaging monster by an L.A. mad scientist. Almost a decade later, Seletri himself would be murdered gangland-style in a crime that remains debated and unsolved to this day. John Hart (TV's "The Lone Ranger "), 40s Hollywood starlet Andrea King (THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS) and even former mob moll/stripper Liz Renay (DESPERATE LIVING) star in this jaw-dropper directed by William A.

Summary Review: Highly recommended

A killer stalks a composer staying at a posh Tuscany villa while writing the score to a horror film which has an incriminating clue to the killer's identity.

This is a brilliant. I consider it to be a true masterpiece. This film is like a whodunnit, only with good gore scenes, nothing over-the-top but more violent than most films take it. Tensely built up and a few moments that will make you jump.

If you watch Scream then you will see how they stole a lot of ideas from this film, seeing as how Kevin Williamson wrote that I'm not at all surprised.

Highly recommended.

  • The film was originally shot for Italian television. However, the final cut of the film ended up for theatrical release, at least in its English language form. This version was uncut in terms of being a final director's cut for international distribution.

    However, a longer version running existed in Italian. The extra footage doesn't add much in the way of plot development or gore, but it does achieve a more layered, character-motivated approach than the consumer friendly earlier cut. Some of the restored scenes include Bruno making a pay booth call to Julia's boss, more atmospheric night scenes of Bruno exploring the house, a longer build up to the second murder, and several extra red herring bits involving Stanko Molnar as the groundsman, fondling scissors and generally acting suspiciously.

The US Theatrical Version was cut for violence to address viewer antipathy for pre-release screenings. These cuts were not applied to the International Release. A few years later the film was revised in response to this success of a bootleg workprint sold as a Director's Cut. The tacky happy ending was removed along with the film noir commentary to create the 1992 Director's Cut, but the cut violence was not restored. Finally the cut violence was restored to the Director's Cut to create the truly uncut, 2007 version called the Final Cut

The BBFC commented:

BLADE RUNNER is a well known science fiction film which was first released in 1982. This version was passed '15' for some strong violence, including bloody gun shot impacts. As in other versions of the work, this was thought to be containable at '15', as none of the violence contravenes the BBFC guidelines at '15' which state that violence 'may be strong but may not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury'.

BLADE RUNNER also includes one muffled use of strong language, brief nudity and mild sex references.

Thanks to Gavin Salked for the notes about the various versions of Blade Runner.

The Final Cut was released in 2007. It starts with the Director's Cut and restores the violence originally deleted from the US Theatrical Version (which stayed deleted in the Director's Cut).

When director Ridley Scott learned that theaters were running a workprint billed as a director's cut in 1991 without his permission, he insisted to Warner Bros. that he actually be given the opportunity to make a proper director's cut.

Scott initially wanted to begin with the roughly finished workprint, and add to it scenes he felt were needed, particular the unicorn sequence.

However, due various factors (not least of all some miscommunication between the people involved), the Director's Cut that was released in 1992 ended up being rather hastily created by starting with the US Theatrical Version, stripping away the narration and happy ending and inserting the unicorn dream sequence. The violence cut for the US Theatrical Version remained cut in the Director's Cut.

This was released on VHS and Laserdisc in the 1990s, and later on DVD in 1999.

Because the Director's Cut was such a rush job, it was not really a true director's cut. It was put together by film archivist Michael Arick, working against a very strict time limit, based on notes from Ridley Scott. Whilst Scott approved this cut, it was not his ultimate or preferred version, although he did endorse it as being better than the theatrical versions. This eventually led to the release of The Final Cut, which took a total of seven years or so to finally come together.

US: The US Theatrical Version was MPAA R Rated

US test audiences were shown the proposed theatrical version. The film makers came to the conclusion that viewers objected to the graphic violence and so cuts were made resulting in the cut US Theatrical Version. The cuts were not however applied to the International Theatrical Version.

Thanks to Dave. The cuts for US audiences were:

  • The death of Priss is much less violent. The uncut version shows Ford shooting her three times or so and the camera really lingers on her blood oozing body which is graphic to see. However this was reduced for the US Theatrical Version
  • The US Theatrical Version deletes Roy's killing of his genetic creator by pressing his fingers into the eye sockets showing graphically blood and brain matter squirting out for several seconds.
  • Roy's self mutilation showing the nails going into his hands is shown in less detail.

Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 is a 2017 UK / USA / Canada Sci-Fi thriller by Denis Villeneuve.
Starring Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling and Ana de Armas. IMDb

Uncut in the UK (15) and US (R), but cut in India to remove nudity and to blur the sight of bottles of spirits. An FSK 12 rating in Germany caused a little controversy as a few cinema goers considered the rating too low.

Summary Notes

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

The uncontentious version details are described on IMDb

  • The Unrated Edition reinserts 2 major scenes amounting of 10 minutes. The first one is an exchange between Drake and Danica where both shared their past including Drake being there during the crucification. He then seduces her. The other one is right after the final fight between Drake and Blade. The doctors were about to perform an autopsy on Blade when he just simply gets up as if resurrected and leaves the morgue. However, the fate of the doctors were not revealed.
  • The unrated extended edition also has a very different and much more ambiguous ending than the theatrical release.

The consensus is that the extra material does not contribute to the film

Blair Witch is a 2016 USA horror thriller by Adam Wingard.

Film distributors in Australia appealed against the MA15+ (15A) rating from the Classification Board.

The Review Board agreed with the Classification Board and the original rating and consumer advice is maintained

The Blair Witch Project is a 1999 USA horror mystery by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez (as Eduardo Sanchez).

Always uncut. A little extra footage was added for TV screenings.

Summary Notes

In search of a local legend, three bold amateur documentarians--director, Heather; cameraman, Josh; sound recorder, Mike--hike into Burkittsville's gloomy Black Hills Forest to find a shadow: the fabled Blair Witch. Now, one long year later--after that fateful October of 1994--there's still no sign of the student filmmakers, apart from the raw footage they left behind. Who knows what truly happened during their creepy five-day journey into the mouth of madness? Was there, indeed, an intangible supernatural presence in the dark woods that led to the team's disappearance? Either way, the missing trio must have seen something. Could the nightmarish myth be real?

Summary Review: A Great Movie

A blind, but deadly, gunman, is hired to escort fifty mail order brides to their miner husbands. His business partners double cross him, selling the women to bandit Domingo. Blindman heads into Mexico in pursuit.

This is currently a comic book western. But that doesn't mean that it's bad! It's a great movie and it's violent for a movie made in 1971, one scene at the end is really disgusting.

A great music score by Stelvio Cipriati, good action scenes and an amazing Tony Anthony makes it to one of the better spaghetti westerns. Don't miss!
