What Waits Below

Rating: 2.6/5 (104 votes cast)

What Waits Below (1984)

aka Secrets of the Phantom Caverns
Director: Don Sharp
Starring: Robert Powell, Timothy Bottoms, Lisa Blount, Richard Johnson, Anne Heywood, A.C. Weary, Liam Sullivan, Jackson Bostwick, Richard Beauchamp

All right! The Hex brings you Don Sharp - Hammer Studio veteran (The Kiss of the Vampire, The Face of Fu Manchu , Rasputin: The Mad Monk etc.) and Psychomania mastermind - and his low-budget 80's action creeper What Waits Below! Well what? What does wait below? Well, you'll just have to wait. It builds slowly but be patient brothers and pays off and the solid cast, creative plot and special effects make it well worth the wait.

The Bamboo Saucer

Rating: 2.3/5 (91 votes cast)

The Bamboo Saucer (1968)

aka Collision Course
Director: Frank Telford
Starring: Dan Duryea, John Ericson, Lois Nettleton, Bob Hastings, Vincent Beck

Wow – a holdover from 50's FATE magazine's racist "Asians are aliens" meme....if, at least in title only...while we normally take all of this very seriously, Bamboo Saucer has the distinct appearance of being the film that the '79 Airplane ripped off....sans disco jacket. You'll definitely see what we mean...(and that's no slag). As usual, drink up and wish you were watching this in the Vortex Room!...VIVA LA RED SCARE!!!

The Killing of Satan

Rating: 2.4/5 (86 votes cast)

The Killing of Satan (1983)

aka Lumaban ka, Satanas
Director: Efren C. Piñon
Starring: Ramon Revilla, Cecille Castillo, Charlie Davao

Halloween video nasty treasure #3! The last of our favorite ultra low budget video store obscurities until our special Halloween prize. The Killing of Satan! A Philippine take on …well, battling Satan himself! Does it make any sense? No. Is it a smooth, graceful ride? Nope. Will it entertain a booze fueled Halloween party? Affirmative! We always knew Satan would try to get the upper hand by wearing red underoos! Its just the way his mind works……If this all makes you a bit nervous, rest assured there are plenty of zombies, laser battles, nudity, gore and snakes…man, there are A LOT of snakes…. This would be a good companion piece to The Devil's Rain - two decidedly 'different' takes indeed! This is the UNCUT euro-version with hard coded Scandinavian subs. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

The Island of the Fishmen (1979)

aka L'Isola degli uomini pesce, Screamers, Something Waits in the Dark
Director: Sergio Martino, Miller Drake

Genius. Atlantis...Bigfoot...Barbara Bach...Mayans...1979. 'Nuff Said--A.W.E.S.O.M.E...until you turn around...and see...Hey, did that guy just call your Dad "jackoff"? This film is the embodiment of the Independent Order of the Hex Cosmic.

Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye

Rating: 2.6/5 (87 votes cast)

Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye (1973)

aka La Morte negli occhi del gatto
Director: Antonio Margheriti
Starring: Jane Birkin, Hiram Keller, Françoise Christophe, Venantino Venantini

There are many threads that bind the may have noticed that Antonio Margheriti in one of them...his catalogue of work speaks volumes and his name means something to us here in the catacombs. This may be one of his most beautifully realized works--a film that combines the popular Italian Giallo films with a Hammer sensibility. Dripping with gothic sexuality: Clue meets Vampyros Lesbos. We are very proud to offer you Seven Deaths in a Cat's Eye in full anamorphic glory. The good old days were very good indeed!

Alice in Acidland

Rating: 2.4/5 (127 votes cast)

Alice in Acidland (1968)

aka Alice Goes to Acidland
Director: John Donne
Starring: Colleen Murphy, Buxx Banner, Patty Roberts

Well, it sure seems like a long time since we posted any acid films.....Lo-and-behold!!!! The wildest, swingin' nudie cutie we have ever seen! Not only that, but the most 'naked' example of the sexploitation as scare film - so the squares can justify getting a little kinky too! This one starts off as your standard N.C. but with acid and pot standing in for the booze......then it switches from B&W to color and the shenanigans really kick into 'high' gear!!!! Its well made, clever, sexy as hell...and a Swiftian tribute to Charles Dodgson in the vaguest of ways (at least in our minds)!

While we are on the subject - we HIGHLY recommend Anna Biller's genius swingin' 60s tribute - Viva (Unrated Edition). You will never find a more detailed love letter to the genre....

Hell's Bloody Devils

Rating: 2.5/5 (100 votes cast)

Hell's Bloody Devils (1970)

aka Operation M., Smashing the Crime Syndicate, Swastika Savages, The Fakers
Director: Al Adamson
Starring: John Gabriel, Anne Randall, Broderick Crawford, Scott Brady

More Al Adamson and this time its one of his rarer and definitely more inspired works....Hell's Bloody Devils is a masterpiece of twisted and determined vision. Rumors fly as to how long this film was in production....movies and filmmakers like this are what fuel the modern day Jim Van Bebbers to provoke through chemistry fueled celluloid. You get the distinct feeling that Adamsom lived this shit while still holding it together enough to get to it, if you know what we mean....Outlaw Biker gang "The Bloody Devil’s", the FBI, and the remains of Hitler’s inner circle all collide in a shockwave of groovy, groovy destiny that will pop your little mind! Seriously – name another Nazi outlaw biker movie that actually contains real honest to god Nazi's? We really miss what was truly a golden age when maniac visionaries like Adamson could get a budget to pull this off – the craziest outlaw Nazi movie EVER!... ..Al Adamson is a classic provoker and a true rebel genius - we bow before Hells Bloody Devil's!!!!!!!!
