In the early 2000s, Henrik Larsen (of Obskuriøst magazine and "Samlersind" on this forum) and I used to hook up with a fellow friend for film nights once a month. This went on for a number of years and needless to say we got to watch a lot of films. Some films I remember, some I don't, but one film I remember vividly - altho I never even watched the damn thing - is CORRUPTION! For some reason Henrik never screened it and we just kept talking about how he was gonna make me a dvd-r dupe some day. Jump to 7 or 8 years later (i.e. NOW!), we no longer meet for film nights, Henrik has moved to the outskirts of civilisation, our former fellow friend is gone... but... I have... finally... received CORRUPTION from Henrik!! LMAO.

Peter Cushing plays a famous doctor who's going to marry an equally famous fashion model. Cushing's character is considerably older than his love interest. At the beginning of the movie this comes across in that he's too tired to go to a party (very 60s style party!) and once he's finally there he's not at all comfortable with the youngsters and their modern dancing. When his girlfriend's photographer decides to take photos of the doctor's gf at the party, and step by step makes her undress, it becomes too much for the ol'e doctor. A fistfight between the two breaks out and unfortunately one of the big spotlights falls over and hits the girlfriend burning her right side of the face to a crisp. What to do, what to do???

The doctor starts frantically to go thru old Egyptian books in order to find the answer - and he finds one: A gland is the answer! The gland from another young person mind you! So off to the hospital to get a gland from a recently deceased patient. At home he performs an operation on his girlfriend and voila, her face is restored. But needless to say it wouldn't be a horror movie if the Happy End occurred 15 minutes into the film, LOL, and soon the effect of the new gland wears off, and a new gland has to be found; This time a more fresh one - from another recently deceased young woman... and I'm sure I don't have to mention what goes with the territory... the doctor makes sure the deceased lady is VERY recently deceased! Soon after the effect of this new gland starts to wear off as well so obviously the only solution is to...

Well, no more spoilers from me. Watch the film and find out! CORRUPTION is really good and Peter Cushing's performance is outstanding (but then again, has he ever done a bad performance?). The film is well directed and there's not a dull moment to be found. The 60s jazz music score fits the film well and the pace is fast all the way thru. There's quite a bit of violence and crazy behaviour, and towards the end the film even shifts into a CLOCKWORK ORANGE'ian mode! The end is quite something.

CORRUPTION is a bit of a forgotten film and that's definitely a pity. The film exists in two slightly different versions; the original UK print and an export print made for the European market. The difference is a scene in which the doctor kills a prostitute in her room, this scene was filmed twice. The original version has quite a bit of dialogue and ends with the doctor knifing the girl. In the Euro version you see the girl topless and there's quite a bit of gore as the doctor cuts her head off. Interestingly enough, the prostitute in the two versions is played by two different actresses. Maybe the first actress wasn't happy with the nudity in the Euro version (or it was filmed later and she wasn't available for the shoot).

Being a gore-hound I hate to say this but the toned down scene in the original version is the better one of the two. The more explicit Euro version looks rushed and isn't staged nor played all that well. But of course it has NUDITY and GORE!! LOL. Henrik was so kind as to include the Euro scene on my dvd-r (from a tape of a less good picture quality. I'm aware the Euro version exists on a tape from France but I can't remember which version Henrik's Euro copy originates from).


Posted Image


Unfortunately, there is only one DVD release of the film; A Spanish DVD that has censored out the entire murder scene that I just mentioned (i.e. it's not a matter of their using the toned down version; no, the scene is completely missing! Go figure!). I saw one web site that sells a bootleg which is being advertised as "the uncut UK theatrical print" but the cover they're using is the Spanish DVD cover so I reckon they didn't do their homework and that it's the cut version they're selling. Boo-hoo, and bollox to them!!! Apparently the TV channel TCM in the US showed the uncut UK version on cable TV at some stage and the picture quality is probably better than the Aussie VHS (altho the VHS is pretty decent). But in any case, no matter which version you'll be able to get hold of I highly recommend CORRUPTION.

- And here the European version with a different actress.

- And here two screen grabs of the *goodies* that the Europeans got and the sensitive British audiences didn't: NUDITY...

...and GORE!

PS: I'm using a VLC screen grabber and it's a crappy one (but it's a free one!) and the picture on my dvd-r looks better than what it does here. :ph43r:

Thanks to Henrik Larsen for the dvd-r. :D

So here we are, dump and dumper getting on each other once again  :rolleyes:

At least OUR family members don't put our rare video tapes in the trunk of the car and keep them there for 4 weeks. :lol: :P


Why not?

Ehh, because they don't make it to the post office that way maybe? :P

Very nice find there, Matt!! I've recently been given a fan subtitled print of that film.

Sorry about this late reply, I've been spending less time here the past month or so and have probably missed a few posts. :lol:

I checked BLASTING BULLETS on Andrew Leavold's blog and the cover looks familiar but whether it's the same film or if those cunning Greeks just used the picture for another Filipino film I don't know. I'll try and see if I can find the tape.

One of Eddie Nicart's films I do have is CALIBER 357 on Danish VHS (you can see screen grabs from my tape here):

Can anyone tell me which movie The Blind Warrior is ?
Can`t find an IMDB link , I think it`s an Indonesian movie ?!

Yes, BLIND WARRIOR is from Indonesia, and it's kind of part of the THE WARRIOR (Jaka Sembung) series. Good find, congrats! There's also a German DVD.

Wanted the nude princess dvd
You might have a hard time finding that one. I got mine a couple of years ago and already back then I had to search high and low to find a copy at a fair price. It was around £60 on Amazon UK then. A new on is £80 right now. I've just checked and there's ONE second hand copy that retails for £20. :blink:

I was lucky to find a copy at a Copenhagen online porn shop at around £12. :lol:

Are these books any good?
Hi there, Soulcrew!

I bought Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds by Maitland McDonagh when it came out many yrs back and I remember it to be too academic for my liking (at the time anyway). I haven't re-read it so I don't know how I'd feel about it now. :unsure:

RaroVHS Christian in the paper!
Gee wizz!! I just noticed our friend Christian from RaroVHS blog is featured extensively in an Argentinian paper with his VHS collection!! Awesome!! Congrats, Christian!! :wub:

Amy Winehouse passed away...
Very tragic. If she had cleaned up her act she could have had a great career in front of her. She was a great soul singer. RIP. :(

Cheers, mate. Nah, I don't actually have that many, I just babble a lot about the ones I do have. Haha.

I just counted them and I've got around 30 so far. I mostly only go after films that I really want and which aren't on DVD. And yes, I've got a player. :D

It's available on a couple of DVD releases (I've got the Greek "newspaper version" that Miltos is selling) and there's a reg. 1 DVD but they're both dubbed into English. This LD has English subs (and hopefully a better picture quality!). My DVD has fucken TAPE ROLL on it!! :blink:
