    Blood for Dracula

    ★★★★★

    "If you really were clever, Anton, you would bring me a virgin from Italy and I wouldn't have to go."

    Oh, this is the stuff of legends! I was not prepared for the insane trip that is Blood for Dracula. Directed by Paul Morrissey and produced by Andy Warhol this film made me feel like my brain was melting at times. The premise is a pretty good one; out of options, a sickly Count Dracula (Udo Kier) and his manservant…

    "I can't feel sorry for the victims. I need to keep on killing."

    Austrian glass, concrete and steel, shot straight into your veins! Gerald Kargl's 1983 psycho killer shocker is a jolt to the system, where Erwin Leder plays a man just released from prison. He goes to a cafeteria and enjoys a bratwurst (in the most disturbing way possible) while ogling some girls at the counter. He then get's in a taxi and almost strangles the chauffeur with his…

    The Gullspång Miracle

    Totally bananas story with more twists and turns than you can count. I was shaking my head and grinning as a fool constantly.

    Not to mention, what can only be interpreted as a devastating condemnation of DNA testing in general.

    It is only February still, but I am willing to wager this film is going to place high in my rankings when my 2024 film year is going to be summed up.

    "...She was getting too old to write about the future."

    A sleep-depraved collaborator from Afghanistan fled to the US spends her days working the fortune cookie machines at a Chinese restaurant when fate hands her the job of writing the fortunes. A chance she ceases upon to throw some personal messages in those cakes to insert some sorely needed action and inspiration into her slow and unfulfilled life, but things go awry as they often do.

    Love when an indie…

    "You think this is a fuckin' costume? This is a way of life."

    I hadn't seen this in ages and ages (think it is close to 30 years since last the time), but this thing moves!!

    <3 Linnea Quigley. <3 Trash.

    There is a treasure trove of trivia from this film, but this was my favourite one:
    "The character Ernie (Don Calfa) is thought to be a Nazi due to him sharing his name with Ernst Kaltenbrunner. There are also…

    ★★★★★

    "I can feel death in this room! I feel a presence, a twisted mind sending me thoughts! Perverted, murderous thoughts... Go away! You have killed! And you will kill again!"

    Unmatched, murderous mood, so thick you can slice it with a razor blade. Creepy dolls, eerie nursery rhymes, unnerving children's paintings, David Hemmings and Daria Nicolodi having great on-screen chemistry, Turin at nighttime, all insanely gorgeously shot by master craftsman Luigi Kuveiller . This is a hell of a movie!…
