Summary Review: Psychedelic 70's vampire film

Celeste Yarnell wanders through the Southern California desert (in a dune buggy) as the mysterious Diane LeFanu. After inviting a swinging couple (Michael Blodgett & Sherry Miles) to her desert home for a weekend, the couple are soon pulled into Diane's bizarre psychedelic bloodsucking world.

The film is very slight on the gore front and has a few topless scenes on the sex front.

The film seems to have a found a few fans who appreciate the psychedelic sound and visuals but many reviewers report that they found it very tedious.

The BBFC commented:
  • This work was originally seen for advice. The company was advised that the film was likely to receive an 18 certificate but that their preferred 15 classification could be achieved by making cuts to reduce a scene of sexualised threat and to remove an accompanying aggressive use of very strong language directed at a woman. When the finished version of the film was submitted for formal classification, edits had been made to this scene. The formal submission was consequently rated 15.

178:44s UK: The Director's Cut was passed 18 uncut for:

US: Uncut and MPAA R Rated for:

Version details from US Amazon. The director's cut runs about 25 minutes longer, and incorporates more elements from the comics, adds more violence, as well as more shots of Dr. Manhatten's schlong. Some of the previous scenes are reworked with additional dialogue.

Overall, the storyline and conversations are better fleshed out, and this version is truer to the comics. The largest additional addition is that of Hollis Mason's death.

  • Rorschach gets additional dialogue, some straight from the comics.
  • When Rorschach searches the Comedian's apartment shortly after the opening scene, he encounters two cops still stationed there. He fights briefly with them before jumping back out the window.
  • Conversation between Dan and Rorschach (beans scene) is extended.
  • All flashbacks extended, with the exception of Sally's.
  • Dr. Manhatten discussing the symbol on his forehead. Additional questions in the face to face with Dr. Manhatten. Dan and Hollis watch Dr. Manhatten go crazy on their TV set.
  • Laurie getting interrogated by the military as they try to determine Dr. M's whereabouts (on Mars). Alessandro Juliani's scene has been reinserted. He plays one of the scientists who bursts in during the interrogation of Laurie to tell the military that they've located Dr. M on Mars.
  • Probably the biggest addition is the depiction of Hollis Mason's death at the hands of the knot heads. Interestingly, the death is done from poor Hollis' POV, where he imagines himself fighting the gangsters of the 1940s. He delivers left and right hooks to Captain Evil, before being done in by "Moloch". The score for the death scene is very fitting.
  • Dan taking revenge on an isolated knot head at a bar, post Hollis' death. It's a brutal revenge.
  • The shootout by hired hitman Roy Chess is much more brutal- e.g. more blood and gore, fingers blown off.
  • Conversation between Dr. Long and Rorschach is extended.
  • Longer jail-break scene with arguments between Rorschach and Laurie. Prison guards open fire on Dan's ship.
  • Longer conversation between Dr. M and L on Mars.
  • Riot scene is longer with more conversation between the Comedian and the rioters.
  • Agent Forbes (Fulvio Cecere) has a larger role as the government agent in charge of handling all the Watchmen.

Summary Review: Retro Allure

A young couple becomes embroiled with the personal problems of another couple on a yacht moored off Sicily during a turbulent weekend of fun, games, sex games, betrayal, spouse abuse, and murder.

An early lurid exploitation gem from the future director of Cannibal Holocaust.

The female leads, Dionisio and Turner aren't shy and jump into their roles, including some lesbian scenes, with enthusiasm.

The film's low budget and locations work together to create a unique charm. The soundtrack and wardrobes also contribute to the film's retro allure.

Waxwork DVD Zach Galligan

Waxwork is a 1988 USA / West Germany / UK comedy horror by Anthony Hickox.
Starring Zach Galligan, Deborah Foreman and Jennifer Bassey. BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for 18 rated 1988 cinema release and follow up VHS. The BBFC cuts were waived for 18 rated 2001 DVD. UK releases are based on the uncut Unrated Version with the film being cut in the US for an R rating.

Summary Review

A waxwork museum comes to town, and a mysterious man invites some teens to come to a special showing at midnight. Once inside, while viewing different exhibits, the scenes come alive and the viewer is sucked into the story being portrayed.

All in all, this plays more like a comedy than a horror film, but the violence, when it appears, is so over-the-top that splatter fans won't be too disappointed.

Way Dragon Dual Format Blu ray

Way of the Dragon is a 1972 Hong Kong martial arts film by Bruce Lee.
With Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris and Nora Miao. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb  
Heavily cut by the BBFC for UK cinema release and VHS. Uncut for DVD but old cuts crept back into the Universal DVD

Summary Review: Recommended

This is the story about Tang Lung (Bruce Lee), who visits a Chinese Restaurant in Rome to help out against thugs that are trying to take it over.

This is possibly the best movie Bruce ever appeared in. It has a much-more-consistent pace, and Bruce not only shows his lighter side but gets to show what he is really made of, particularly in the climactic classic fight against Chuck Norris (look at the speed of those kicks!).

Definitely recommended, even if you're not a Bruce Lee fan.
