The Devil fights the man hard but Bill always manages to beat him :lol:

HOLLYWOOD
As long as I remember myself I had a taste on things much different from the others. I was into extreme & experimental music that only a few people knew about and into films that most people even affraid to spell. Later I found out that -in fact- there are many people worldwide with a passion for the weird, the bizarre and the forbidden.

I don't really care about mainstream. This doesn't means I cannot enjoy a mainstream movie sometimes but I really don't give a damn what's happening there. A I don't really care if a boring movie comes from Hollywood, from Europe, Asia or Greece. Of course movies from "exotic" places have a magical touch and a weirdness anyway.

America conquers the world with the army, the money & the arts, that's for sure. Hollywood is a part of this plan. But America gave us films as "Death Wish" series, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes, aaa...so many others. Cinema there has its creepy side too B)

I've only seen The Other Hell 81 by Bruno Mattei and it was a boring nun-exploitation film. Thinks Rats 84 and Violence In A Woman's Prison 81 are his best.

Yes, along with HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD, STRIKE COMMANDO, ROBOWAR, K19 LAGER and SS GIRLS.

Yes, if you start counting you'll find out Mattei has directed A LOT of great stuff !!

GREEK CULT MOVIES
Hey guys, I don't really understand. It seems pierosgr (welcome to the forum, by the way) wrote his message in Greek and afterwards edited it in English? This is an English spoken forum but maybe it was just a mistake, it's not so...terrible after all.

As for the "angry" smilie I really don't understand it. You can call it rude but I beleive it really makes no sense. Anyway, it has been replaced with that arrow that in cinehound's glossary means "new post"...

TRADES POLL
Hm, try that, sometimes people are too busy to read their e-mails. By the way, I did a trade with him without problems !!

"Stop CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST remake" Petition
Greek "serious" critics suffer by their political view on films. I beleive they cannot enjoy the films. I don't give a damn about them...

As for Mattei, the man is the maestro of rip-offs & exploitation. I have read a lot of bad reviews about his films, many critics at The Dark Side and other mags mention his films as "rubbish", I remember I had read somewhere how he destroyed Fulci's ZOMBIE 3 when Lucio was ill and producers gave the rest of the film to Bruno.

OK, Mattei is not Fulci or Argento but he shot tons of exploitation gems. When you read "directed by Bruno Mattei" you know it's a cheap flick but you'll enjoy it !!

But it seems I lost contact with his recent work. Where I can find these cannibal films, CANNIBAL WORLD & LAND OF DEATH? Are they only on Japanese DVDs? I'll do my online research but if you tell me where I could buy them you make my life easier :)

I must buy them both !!

LUBIE NIETOPERZE (1986)
LUBIE NIETOPERZE
aka: I LIKE BATS (US video title)
Polish vampire horror (1986)
Directed by Grzegorz Warchol
Cast: Katarzyna Walter, Marek Barbasiewicz, Malgorzata Lorentowicz,
Jonasz Kofta, Edwin Petrykat

This is a female vampire horror flick from Poland. Before my review, i have to say that I search for IMDb info and I found two reviews already posted: one from a local cinefan who beleives the film is just "awful" and the other by "ajji-2" from Pakistan (I suppose he is ajji from this forum? B) ) who beleives the film is very nice but mainly a drama with some eerie sequences and not really a horror film...

Well, we live in a free world (hm...) so let me have my personal taste: LUBIE NIETOPERZE is a great horror film !! I've seen it from a DVD-R recorded by the USA VHS release in Polish language with English subtitles. Subtitles help a lot to understand what's happening as this is a film with a real plot.

Izabella, a young beautiful woman, works at her aunt's shop in a small town in Poland. She uses her hands to create unique small objects for the shop. But in the nights she has the strange habbit to feed bats. Also she gives the shape of the bat to many of her handmade objects.

Police is after a sex maniac killer who rapes & kill women in the woods. Marceli, a man who loves Izabella, tries to protect her telling her that he could walk with her on her way home but she rudely refuse. She doesn't like him at all. Her aunt tries hard to change her mind but Izabella beleives she can protect herself alone.

The serial killer attacks her and when he asks for a kiss she'll give him the kiss of death with pleasure...Because she's actually a vampire woman!

One of the best little scenes in the movie is when Izabella walks into the woods with a storm. Thunderbolts burn the trees around her but she doesn't give a damn !!

By the way the main music theme of the movie is an eerie whistle...

Anyway, one day a handsome foreigner comes to the shop and buys a service, hand painted with a bat design. Later he eats in a local night club / restaurant. Marceli drinks there thinking his love, Izabella. Some whores are also there, one of them does a striptease. Another one tries to seduce that foreigner man but he doesn't care for whores. After that she picks up a driver...and then we find out she's Izabella disguised as a hooker. They take a ride with his truck where she drinks his blood from his neck.

Aunt says to Izabella that Marceli is very sad and he leaves town. She visits him at night dressed like a whore. He's very surprised, now he understands that the bar prostitute is in fact Izabella. They're having sex and then she bites him.

Izanbella watch a documentary on TV about that handsome foreigner who refused her sex. He's Dr. Rudolf Jung and he runs a mental clinic. She visits him claiming she's a vampire searching for therapy. Of course nobody beleive her. Dr. jung thinks she just have psychological problems. But this clinic hides sick passions as most of the nurses have sex with the gardener while Izabella peeps. Many hot sex scenes! One night Izabella feels really horny...and you imagine how story goes: Killer sex with the gardener in his house!

One of the most weird scenes in the movie is when Dr. Jung goes with Izabella at a forbidden psycho-clinic, in fact is a camp that hold the psychos in cages by the sea! They want to keep Izabella as a prisoner but they escape after a fight. Now we know the doctor is in love with her.

Hey guys, hold your horses, I will not tell you no more of the story :P
Does the film have a happy end? Well...almost :unsure:

A very nice sleazy horror flick with a very interesting plot, a lot of sex & nudity (including one nice sexy scene under the water), some really eerie & weird sequences, great direction & acting...I guess it should be more bloody, I really didn't enjoy the bites so much, what is a vampiric bite without much blood?

Look for it :D

PIRANHA - GREEK FANZINE
Some members asked me for more info about the other fanzine I mention, "Normal Cult Films". Hm, this is a very small b/w fanzine, about 4-6 pages each issue cheap photocopied and each one covers just a movie. But editor's interests are rather silly films. Editor use the name Ursula Stojanovic, I don't know if is "he" or "she", but the title for the fanzine should be "Silly Films" indeed. Last issue is #17 and you could find it -along with a few older ones- in Solaris comix shop for 0.30 euro

By the way Solaris has a lot of Japanimation DVDs, some really rare straight from Japan. But...prices kill !! Veeery expensive :(
