HAPPY NEW YEAR FOLKS !!!
Hey folks,

In 3 hours we'll be into 2007 here in Greece and I just found a few minutes to wish the best to all of you & your relatives & friends for the new year.
Peace, Health & Happiness to all people out there.

And of course our lives to be full with weird, scary & dirty films !!

Also I wish a great success to all people into the b-movie & DVD industry...

Please let me wish the best for this little forum here too. I'll do my best for it in the new year and I hope for your support.

People in Hong Kong, Australia, Korea...are into 2007 already.
All other humanity soon...
2006 is already a dying old man...

I WISH YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! :lol:

Cheers, Miltos, the cinehound

NEW TURKISH HORROR DVDs
I hope you'll manage to do the job, please let me know. Then I'll buy some quantity from you :rolleyes:

TURKISH HORROR DOUBLE-BILL DVD by ONAR FILMS
Yes, Bill, that's what I thought from the beginning. A cover can be made from the stuff you have, it's logical. But it's a nice scary cover, I like it :)

I know pretty well you're a honest man and you always speak the truth but many people out there don't apreciate that...Anyway, I hope the best for the DVD.

When I say it will be one of the best 2007 releases I really mean it...one of the best, if not THE best. Sales is another thing, as it always is...

My best wishes for you, your family and of course for ONAR !!!

SHAW BROTHERS - GREEK RELEASES
I just saw AUDIO VISUAL label released many SHAW BROS martial arts gems on DVD...Widescreen, with many extras.
In their original (a kind of Chinese) language and with Greek subtitles only (no English).

You could find them only for 10 EUR each in all big shops (including Metropolis) so...run for them :D

XMAS WISHES!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYBODY !!

Our whole house looks now like a Christmas tree. We buy more & more presents for our son, our relatives, our friends, even for ourselves. From tomorrow 'till the 1st of January (and a bit later perhaps) we'll eat more & more & more meat. My wife & son listen silly songs all day long. We visit relatives' houses and they visit us...

These days you must be happy but I feel sad during the first night of the new year. And when all fall to sleep I use to watch 2-3 horror movies alone. I do that for many years now since I had my very first VCR.

I'm sure Christmas is for children mainly. But we all hide a child inside us...I hope so. I try hard to look happy these days because I love my family a lot. For me the main thing is that these days I don't work so I'm lazy for a couple of weeks...Yeah !!

I know many people spend just for their family these days and can't afford to buy DVDs etc for themselves. For me it's different, these days I always spend a lot for my hobby !! :)

Again, I wish you the best - health, love, money, whatever you want !!!

TURKISH HORROR DOUBLE-BILL DVD by ONAR FILMS
This will be the best ONAR FILMS release so far because:
-I've seen THIRSTY FOR LOVE, SEX AND MURDER and is a great gory giallo indeed (I review it in another topic)
-I've seen the trailer of THE DEAD DON'T TALK and that haunted laugh of the killer is cult alone...I hope for a great film.
-The prints will be better than the previous Onar releases.
-There are many EXTRAS indeed (METIN DEMIRHAN is an expert about Turkish horror & exploitation !!)
-The cover RULES !! It's the best Onar cover so far, much better even from 3 DEV ADAM. Maybe not very gory...I agree with that, but I suppose covers are made by the photos you have in your position, right? So I don't really know if Bill had gory photos to put on cover. But the whole cover with the haunted villa behind lead to a bloody horror double-bill. I agree cover presents more the DEAD DON'T TALK film and not the giallo one though.

There aren't many people worldwide who like Turkish exploitation, but there are TOO MANY who like stange horror flicks. This DVD could sell well with a good promotion. I don't think the best way to promote it is to say "I don't know if anyone gives a damn about it...etc..), I'm positive that this is a big FAULT that drives people away. If YOU don't beleive in your product how could you expect OTHERS to support it?

In wish the best for this great release too :)

THE STORIES OF DETECTIVE BEKAS
Last episode was the best so far as I did suspected...But this Thurday they show a silly thing with Roula Koromila instead of Bekas, I hope it's just because of Christmas...as they're still Bekas promotions on Alpha.

Anyway, the CD soundtrack of the series is already at the shops, great music and 3 wonderful songs. Run for it :D

HORROR, CULT & EXPLOITATION ON TV TONIGHT
Holidays are in front of us and I'm sure Greek TV will show anything but exploitation & horror these days...
So I'll stop posting in this TV topic until the first week of next year,OK?


LUCIFERA ILLUMINATRIX
Both DVD boxes arrived yesterday very safe. I paid by COD.
Now I can say that service of this store is excellent really.
Also Hercules, the owner, sent me nice e-mails and now I know he's a collector too, a man who loves what he's doing... :)

TO EMBORIO TIS AMARTIAS
Could you check if that catalogue has other Greek films? :o

TESTOSTERONE (2004)
Right, Wayne, we agree 100% about that :)

RARE GIALLI WANTED - WILL PAY TOP $$$!
70s
Dec 16 2006, 07:28 AM
VHS is almost dead and i can't understand why are you offering so much money for them.I know they're all f*cking rare.But you could try to find good DVD-R reproductions with covers instead.The cost is much lower and a DVD is always better than a VHS!

Those old & deleted VHS are collectible, that's all. People love to collect old things and pay a fortune for them. Of course if you need only the movie I suppose DVD or even DVD-R are better & cheaper solutions...But a VHS collector doesn't search for the movie, he search for the original tape only !!

VAHSETIN ESIRLERI (1971)
VAHSETIN ESIRLERI

Turkish western directed by T. Fikret Ucak in 1971
Cast: Yilmaz Koksal, Seyyal Taner, Oktan Durukan, Funda Eje, Kazin Kartal

When I saw the cover of this turkish VHS I thought it was a mediocre or something...But what a GEM it really is !!

First of all the tape hasn't subtitles but the story is very simple to understand.
A prisoner escapes and on his way home he falls in love with a sexy lady (a sexy cat indeed who is almost naked into the whole film). Together the go to his house where they find his mother & sister upset because a rich man and his gang threat them to get their land. Our hero will go to fright them but later they kill both mother & sister in front of his eyes. His revenge then is terrible. Police is still after him so he he's hiding on the high mountains with his lover and their newborn. But the rest of the gang shoot the baby down. A new bloody circle opens and at the end they both get killed...

This is an excellent western. Director is in great mood and he knows how to make a good western. Of course he's inspired by spaghetti ones. Great shoots of the horsemen accompanying by a cool epic/western original (?) soundtrack. Only a theme near the end is stolen from an italian one.
Here you'll see some of the most ugly criminal faces. The movie is brutal, savage, ultra-violent, almost...unhuman. A lot of violence, bloody fights, whippings...and a lot of cruel executions. How can I describe them? The poor victims are repeatively
get shot on the back...and afterwards their killer step on their back too. Some others get killed while they pray to God.

There are many sick, bloody & GORY moments also: A decapitation with a huge razor, a hutchet on a neck, a big stake through a body, a rake on another poor neck, a baby get shot in the head etc...
Also a lot of sleaze and some nudity...Well, what more do you want ?

There are some really strong & tragic moments like when the mother finds out her baby is dead and screams so loud that a couple of rocks fall from the mountain.
Other unique elements - the ladies at the bar perform...belly dance on the tables.

The end is tragic as both heroes -man & woman- get killed together on their horse.

An action-packed gory western inspired by the best italians. A masterpiece you should see !!
