HORROR STORIES
I've heard the series will be much more thriller/mystery than pure horror...We'll see.

Very common title, I agree. I hate TV too except a few movies, less Greek & foreign crime series and of course...soccer !!

All others are bullshit, worse of all those silly noon talk-shows and all these f@cking realities :angry:

When I'm really tired (and I'm often lately...) I catch myself "watching" this shit...looks like drugs or something !! If you avoid them you do the RIGHT thing !!

I wouldn't call ASSIGNMENT SKYBOLT "exploitation" though. I think "spy action" would be more appropriate.

Hm, for me is a spy exploitation flick. I don't like to play with words :P but it's exploitation including (soft) sadism...

But, hey guys, I don't claim Kourkoulos was deep into...exploitation, OK.
But a small tribute was necessary.

THE STORIES OF DETECTIVE BEKAS

I've heard Alpha channel is going to delete farther episodes of some of its projects for financial causes and I wonder if one of them is going to be Bekas. The sound track was very nice as you said and, Miltos, do you know how many episodes are left for the complete series?

Absolutely not, they'll not delete it, don't worry. :)

I don't really know how many stories WILL be (as they continue shooting...)

Welcome to the forum my friend !! We need your knowledge here.
Your page at MySpace is EXCELLENT :D


ONAR FILMS CHRONICLE
Yep, I just visited ONAR's site and I saw Bill added a new post about his new release(s) last night.
Go for it !!

**************RED ROSE*************
I know this film and I know it's very good but I haven't seen it yet :(

I have it on official DVD with English subtitles.

I'll let you know the label soon...and I'll post the cover :)

KISKIVRAK
Yes, damn, the police helicopter and the almost-naked girls :D

It's a really strong film, you'll like it.

ONAR FILMS CHRONICLE
I had a coffee with Bill downtown this morning and he told me he's not going to release that D@BBE finally for several reasons but he's near to another horror of the 90s (I think it is KARANLIK SULAR but I'm not sure).

Also he expect news for those Cuneyt Arkin masterpieces.

As for the TURKISH DOUBLE-BILL will be out in a couple of weeks :)

NIKOS KOURKOULOS R.I.P.
...And I know many of you will not agree that I post about kourkoulos in the "exploitation" area. Of course he's not one of the main actors into Greek exploitation industry, most of his films were rather mainstream & popular. It's just his pass from exploitation with films like EXODOS KINDYNOU & ASSIGNMENT SKYBOLT that force me to post this small tribute here. A few exploitation films only, I know, but these are belong to the best of the kind, don't you agree?

Also Nikos was always one of my favourite actors and I thought I owe him a post, alright?

NIKOS KOURKOULOS R.I.P.
Nikos Kourkoulos passed away by cancer at the age of 73.

He was in many good judge/social/crime drama-thrillers in the 60s & 70s (Katigoro tous Anthropous, Adistaktoi, Koinonia Ora Miden, Oratotis Miden, Katahrisi Exousias, etc...), not really exploitation films, but I like most of them.
Also he was into a few historical films like BOUBOULINA (1959) and O ASTRAPOYANNOS (1970)

He was also in a few European films that I've never seen like:
GRAFIN PORNO VON EKSTASIEN (1964, German erotic drama)
ROMA COME CHICAGO (1968, Italian crime thriller)

His best films are (according to my opinion of course):
AMFIVOLIES (1964, crime mystery based on Yannis Maris' novel)
BLOOD ON THE LAND (1964, western)
ASSIGNMENT SKYBOLT (1968, perverse spy thriller)
SMILING AFTERNOON (1979, political thriller)
EXODOS KINDYNOU (1980, strong action/crime)


I'm planning to post reviews soon for all of them...

Into ASSIGNMENT SKYBOLT Kourkoulos is credited as NICHOLAS KIRK !!

Cover below is the Greek VHS of ASSIGNMENT SKYBOLT
(it was also on US VHS in English)

CETIN INANC FAN PAGE
KELEPCE is a great action film but as Onar said some other Arkin ones could also characterized as Dirty Harry :)

Great news, Bill, about future Arkin releases. I hope you'll do it. We're lucky as we've got many on VHS with Greek subtitles and all action crime fans out there will be the same lucky with English subtitled DVD releases !! Because most Arkin films have also a good plot...

Below is the Greek cover of KELEPCE.
Again, the video title in Greek is silly: I THISIA ENOS PATERA (="A Father's Sacrifice")

Miltos i have something to ask you.I saw last satuday night at 2.00 am(while I was having my break at work)scenes from a film where a guy with a tattoed woman and another guy with moustache were driving a big fuel truck through a desert with mines.The woman knew the safe route through the mines and If I noticed the truck was full of gold.
I suppose it was made through the 00's and it was a little stupid but I always loved films with big trucks!
Do you have any idea what film it was?

I have no idea, sorry. I even checked the program of last Saturday but I didn't find something to fix... :(

I thought I was the only one who loves films that involve big trucks!

I'm the third one :lol: (at least into action thrillers)

F@ck, I don't remember the title, I had seen a US film on TV late at night, a couple of weeks before, a scary thriller with a maniac driving a huge truck. Two teenagers were traveling across the USA highways and they made a silly joke in a motel. They send an unknown truck driver to an old man's room telling him there was a sexy lady there...The driver butchered the poor old man and then he run after them on the highways with his truck killing innocent people. Does anyone knows the title of the film?

HORROR, CULT & EXPLOITATION ON TV TONIGHT #2
Oooops !! Chuck Norris is king and I like Bronson too (of course :)) but no, not Stallone really. I like only the first Rambo, almost nothing else.

Well, I said it all wrong, I meant I prefer Van Damme from all the big guys with muscles like Stallone, Schwarzenegger etc...This doesn't mean I don't love PREDATOR though...
