Synopsis: Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil. Continue reading
Nikkatsu Erotic Films Collection Vol. 13 and 14 are Female Teacher: Hunting and She Cat. The former is of the loosely-knitted-by-name-only “Female Teacher” series and the latter is a surprisingly complex (if not a little convoluted) film starring the busty and super sexy Ai Saotome.
Female Teacher: Hunting (Vol. 13) begins with a playful teen couple skinny dipping in a pool when, unknown to them, someone is setting it up to look like the boy had raped the girl. He is expelled from school by his sensei (teacher) and moves to the beach where he shacks up with his boss and his horny wife. His teacher also takes a little trip to the beach town to wait out his married lover’s wife. That sets the table for the two to run into each other and the drama of finding the truth. But when he is finally exonerated, the truth doesn’t exactly set him free. Nor does it mean his girlfriend or teacher are safe.

First on the docket, Amos Sefer’s An American Hippie in Israel (aka Ha-Trempist, aka The Hitch Hiker) and a British production starring the legendary Peter Cushing, the shocking thriller Corruption, both coming out September 10, 2013.
“An American Hippie in Israel is already drawing huge midnight movie crowds in Tel Aviv, where it’s become another Rocky Horror,” says company theatrical director David Szulkin. “We plan to do a full theatrical run of the film in the U.S. to promote the film’s release on Blu-ray and DVD.” Continue reading
