Well, the ultimate amalgamation of every 80's Italian and American genre film...and we mean it. Road Warrior – CHECK. BeastMaster – CHECK. Sword and the Sorcerer, Warriors of the Wasteland, The Legend of Billie Jean, Escape From NY, Conan, Bloodfist, American Ninja, Solid Gold, Pirates, Spacehunter, Ghostbusters... OK, scratch that last one but you get the drift... TeeVee staple Rebecca Holden stars with Bond jailbait Lynn-Holly Johnson and......Chuck Wagner, to bring you an epic post nuclear holocaust women's lib pic...and the liberation couldn't come quick enough! The apocalypse has caused all women to be the enslaved sex toys of some apparent Alpha mutation of all men. Maybe they just didn't mention the city of bald, ineffectual accountants.... Enter the super powered band of kick ass She-Warriors – The Sisterhood! Men get theirs, laser beams eyes are unleashed, Machine Gun vs Sword fighting, Dune Buggy Fu, a matriarchal god – WE LOVE IT! Truly epic and worth your time! The perfect companion to Yor: Hunter from the Future.

Director: Romano Ferrara
Starring: Michel Lemoine, Maria Pia Luzi, Jany Clair, Marco Guglielmi, Otello Toso, Peter Dane
Straight from Italy: another groovy groovy 60's human duplicate alien invasion pic. This time aliens select a random airplane crash survivor --who happens to be the son of a famous scientist--and stamp out (literally) a pre-invasion force of cyborgs based on his image. Lead cyborg Bronco (EuroTrash hero Michel Lemoine) tries to integrate himself into society to...well, uhh...do pre-invasion stuff... YOU know! Creepy Bronco doesn't fit in at all and so, naturally, falls right into the hip young urban professional party scene! Mod scenery, wild parties and a slow as molasses plot that really adds an ominous creepy quality to the film. We couldn't stop thinking of this as the evil version of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Planets Against Us also leant a lot of cues to the off kilter film No Survivors Please. In the 60s, alien duplicates always seem to develop a soft spot for the human condition. One can't help but wonder what they would think of us now--wow, maybe that question just answered itself...

A whole lotta Blood Orgy of the She Devils and a little bit Simon, King of the Witches. Picture Ted V.Mikels and Brad Grinter (Blood Freak) making out on a tiger rug in front of a roaring fireplace and waking up with this screenplay on the Milo Baughman coffee table....except they left the TV on and Albert Viola's Preacherman came on at 4:30am and seeped into their dreams. Yea, its like that, and whats not to love? A con man stumbles onto a witch commune in this odd 1971 psychedelic mishmash that feels slightly out of sync with time and space. Witches with conch shells, drafting compasses and interpretive dance covens! Stick with it and you will be richly rewarded with some juicy ritualistic slices of absolute groovy far-fucking-out!

aka Spie vengono dal semifreddo, Dr. Goldfoot and the 'S' Bombs, The Spy Came from the Semi-Cold
Director: Mario Bava
Starring: Vincent Price, Fabian, Franco Franchi, Ciccio Ingrassia
What happens when legendary Italian director Mario Bava gets his big US break helming a sequel to a weird, not-so-successful-in-the-US Vincent Price sex comedy? Another realm Bava pioneered we suppose - the one of shit hot foreign directosr being sucked into the US film industry (Girlbombs was spec'd and financed by AIP although it was shot in Italy) only to be attached to some craven sequel or remake - a cycle thats practically de riguer these days. Nonetheless, this film was wiped off the map for being too weird by studio standards....and although many consider it to be Bava's 'worst' film, we beg to differ.....it would seem there is a lot of subversion going on here that made people a little nervous.......lots of Generals being assassinated so Price can ultimately wage WWIII all wedged and shoe-horned in between a wacky euro-sex farce....yea, you gotta see it!
