The Video Nasties #41 – Massacre Mansion (1976, Michael Pataki)

‘Nancy is going to have her sight back,  and I don’t appreciate your pessimism!’ Massacre Mansion is flat, lifeless semi-remake of the French horror classic Eyes Without a Face, or, as I like to say, Night of the Bloody Apes…with … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #40 – Island of Death (1976, Nico Mastorakis)

‘I always know right from the start if I’m gonna love or hate a place, and that’s why I love this island.’ Oh boy. Island of Death is a cavalcade of debauchery so bizarre and off-kilter that I would give … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #36 – Women Behind Bars (1975, Jess Franco)

‘Men are all rotten.’ ‘True, but you still miss ‘em’. Well this was a surprise. I honestly wasn’t looking forward to watching any of the Women In Prison/Nazisploitation movies on the list, and this one has a particularly poor reputation. … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #35 – The Werewolf and the Yeti (1975, MI Bonns)

‘You’re not an ordinary woman…you’ve got personality.’ Near the start of The Werewolf and The Yeti, there’s an establishing shot of London, with Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament visible. The choice of soundtrack? Scotland The Brave. Close, guys. … Continue reading
