This composition is so calming and lovely.  Yet another theme from a horror film that would be right at home on a Pure Moods compilation.

Wow, they are shamelessly ripping off the alternative poster art for Nightmare City (aka City of the Walking Dead) (1980) here.
Take a look for yourselves.  I don’t know how they got away with this back in the day.  These two movies weren’t even released by the same distributors on VHS, for fuck’s sake…
Of course, it doesn’t end there.  To make things even more confusing, this same image has also been used for the Infinity VHS release of Lucio Fulci’s The Gates of Hell (aka City of the Living Dead)(1980).
As it’s been uncovered here, the true origins of the painting above trace back to a piece by fantasy illustrator Les Edwards, commissioned for the cover of the 1976 Fred Mustard Stewart book, Star Child.
Funny how a single piece of artwork can really get around, huh?

This shot definitely looks a lot less dubious in black and white.  I was always a tad bothered by the painted teeth, but hey - you have to work with what you’ve got sometimes, and the Italian filmmaking industry has all but completely died out since the time this was made.

That’s make up artist god tom savini

Not only is that the character he plays that’s getting shot, but that’s also Savini pulling the trigger as well.  Since they only had one take to get it right, he decided to take the shot himself.

God damn this is just beautiful. I miss movies.

I love posters like this, where absolutely nothing in it has anything whatsoever to do with the actual movie.

Cannibal Holocaust - Opening Theme Music

RIP Brother

Possibly the greatest of the great when it comes to deliberately offensive, gruesome horror films with inexplicably lovely main theme music.

EXPLOITATION MOVIE POSTERSDeath Ship
Trailer

George Kennedy hamming it up to the extreme, an inflatable blow-up doll being passed off as a cadaver in one scene, and the use of black and white stock footage in a color film make this mess one of the all-time cheesiest flicks out there (not to mention tedious).  While it isn’t one of the worst films ever made, it’s certainly no masterpiece.
A good one to watch while drunk with friends, but don’t try basing any drinking games around it.  Taking a shot every time a character says,
 "We have to get off this ship!"
will likely result in the alcohol-poisoning-related deaths of all those present.
