As a die-hard horror-phile, I owe a mound of gratitude to Dario Argento’s Suspiria for single-handedly introducing me to the foreign horror film. Before sitting through that amalgamation of bright-colored visuals and slick murder sequences, I had no idea that horror films were even made outside the U.S. Though the local mom and pop video houses and grocery stores spread around the area I was growing up in had some of them lining their shelves, I would have never known that they came from distant regions across the world. As a young teen living during the era of a very moral and conservative presidency, there was an unmistakable spark inside of me that had been lit after watching the original Friday the 13th that was yearning to become a bright, burning inferno. Growing up a very sheltered child, I attempted to find every book and periodical that would »

A burned-out New York police detective teams up with a college psychoanalyst to track down a vicious serial killer randomly stalking and killing various young women around the city.
Yes, in this episode of Mondo Squallido I take a look at Lucio Fulci’s notorious giallo The New York Ripper – a film so subversive that it was banned outright on its first foray into UK: the print of the film, due for UK censors (BBFC) inspection, was legendarily escorted back to the border by the Police, without ever being screened. And to this very day, The New York Ripper is still only available cut here in the UK…

“A movie with a fowl bite!”
When Luther (Carlton Williams, in his only role) was a young boy, he witnessed a group of rowdy locals egging on the local Geek (Tom Brittingham, also in his only role) to bite the head off a chicken. This combined with him getting his teeth accidentally knocked out by one of said locals in the ruckus leads young Luther to develop a taste for blood. Naturally, this turns him in to a bloodthirsty psycho and paves the way for a life of crime. After serving 20 years and thanks to prison board member Mrs. Butler (Karen Maurise, Dark Skies), a much older and balder Luther (Edward Terry, The Children) is set free. Armed with a set of homemade metal teeth, Luther »

The late ‘80s signaled the end of my first golden age of horror. Which is to say two things: adulthood beckoned, and horror films – especially slashers - were running low on inspiration (remember the early ‘90s wasteland? Brr.). However, looking across the waters, some veteran Italian filmmakers weren’t throwing in the towel yet. Michele Soavi’s Stage Fright (1987) stands apart from the crowd because it proved that not only was the beaten and flogged sub-genre alive, it was still capable of surprising fans with enough fresh blood pumping through its weary veins to make you sit up and notice. Just when you thought you couldn’t survive another hack ‘em up, Stage Fright made you a believer again.
