Any plans to compete at our WC with some obscure countries, sol? I saw you liked The Terror and the Time.
Yes. I have been thinking about managing a country (I have never participated before). I'd probably rather manage a less obscurity country like Russia, Czechia or New Zealand, but I could certainly step in and put that fantastic documentary from Guyana up for consideration if others already have their dibs on the bigger film producing countries.
I might suggest you an ok documentary from Saint Lucia, about a real accident that happened in 1985. Nothing to write home about, but I've never seen a better film from any tiny country I can think of. Although heavy Caribbean accent might put someone off, unfortunately.

FTV:14: The Curious Dr. Humpp (1969) (Argentina) 8.

Image

Greeting the viewer in the waiting room for the doctor with a eyeful of top quality boobage, writer/co-director(with Jerald Intrator) Emilio Vieyra injects the flick with a gloriously steamy, sleazy atmosphere, twirling on slick panning shots down the bodies of Humpp’s nymphomaniac patients/ hostages, which land on erotic overlapping lesbian sex and handfuls of welcomed more boobage. Displaying ambition for this to be more than a skin flick, the directors & cinematographer
Aníbal Gonzalez Paz splash the mask of Dr. Humpp with groovy Psychotronic Horror.

Giving Humpp instructions from a talking brain, the directors cross the sleaze with a delightful anything goes horror atmosphere, taking in Humpp going full Mad Scientist mode to take fluid from the couples having sex in order to avoid transforming into a monster, with Humpp having his villa/ underground science lab surrounded by masked zombie monster henchmen. Entering from a outsider prospective, the screenplay by Vieyra holds the weird horror madness on screen with a neat escape edge, charged by the prisoners/ hostages having to pretend to be nymphomaniac, whilst planning how to free themselves from the curiosity of Dr. Humpp.

FTV:15:La marca del muerto (1961) (Mexico.) 6

Image

Stalking the next targeted victim in a tracking shot down a foggy side-street Jack the Ripper-style backed by a immerse score from Gustavo Cesar Carrion, co-writer/(with Jose Maria Fernandez Unsain) director Fernando Cortes & cinematographer Jose Ortiz Ramos brew a refined Gothic Horror atmosphere, balancing smooth panning shots across the lavish Malthus household, with Mad Scientist chills of striking close-ups on the faces of the next victim jabbed with blood draining machines in a lab kept hidden behind the walls of the upper class Malthus image.

Revived by a relative 70 years after being frozen in time, the screenplay by Unsain/Varela and Cortes at first welds a playful Sci-Fi edge, bubbling from Malthus stating that advancements in science means that he no longer needs women (no mention over why men are left out!) to be killed in order to use their blood to be immortal. Spending the first half setting up the Malthus’s interest in finding other ways, the writers sadly just completely drop all those plot lines unresolved, instead going for a straight to the point ranting Mad Scientist. Playing two roles, Fernando Casanova (what a name!) gives a great, devilish charm turns as the Malthus’s with the mark of death.

FTV:16:Our Evil (2017) (Brazil.)

Image

Kim Newman's review of this great movie:

https://www.screendaily.com/reviews/our ... 17.article

“Hope fails,fate doesn’t” 9/10.

Backed by a nerve tugging Industrial grind blended with circus howl (!) score from composers Guilherme Garbato and Gustavo Garbato, debut writer/editor/director
Samuel Galli & debut cinematographer Victor Molin make a mesmerising ring act. Crossing wires with each other on the “Dark Web”, Galli (whose sister Gabriela was set designer) plugs Arthur and Charles first encounter with a moody Thriller atmosphere, struck by upward camera angles on Arthur creating the impression of a hard man, and the sterile, clean slate appearance of Charles making him a loner who kills anyone that even tries to get under his skin.

Glimpsing at Charles not only being a Dark Web professional hitman, but also a rather keen amateur serial killer, Galli slices into the Torture Horror of the early 2000’s, but instead of going for the jugular, brilliantly carves a more cerebral image, subtly linking Charles acts with the underlying hate Arthur has for them,which he must keep hidden from Charles. Swimming to a long flashback into Arthur’s early life, Galli loops stylised turns into surrealist Horror, lit in dream-logic pristine whites on Arthur becoming enlightened to the gift he has, which pops from a great designed demon monster clawing with a excellent sharp jolt from Charles performing his job.

FTV:17:Cry of the Bewitched (1957) (Mexico.) 5.

Image

Filmed on location under a roasting Cuban sun, director Alfredo B. Crevenna & cinematographer fire up a scorching hot atmosphere in the sugar plantation, flaming up in stylish wide-shots spanning Yambao performing voodoo rituals. Whilst treating voodoo with some level of respect (no scenes of chickens being killed!) the screenplay by Julio Alejandro and Julio Albo sadly does not match the simmering mood Crevenna casts, by being rather dry, as Yambao arriving with the spirit of a murdered sorceress brings little growth in tension to the plantation. Surprisingly appearing naked, stunning Ninon Sevilla brings the film to life with a excellent performance, hypnotising the viewer with the swing of her hips in lively dance numbers, being matched by Sevilla bringing out a passion to Yambao’s sways of revenge on the cry of the bewitched.

A lengthy but engrossing drug wars saga from the perspective of Colombia's indigenous peoples with lots of insight into local customs, superstitions and beliefs. We also get to see all across the country, from vast deserts to jungles to urbanised areas to beaches. The film does not quite work as the story of greed that it tries to be, but it's fascinating to look at centuries-old strong native cultures torn apart - and the nonprofessional actors are excellent.

And with that, I think I have now seen something from every major film-producing LA/C country. B)

This Mexican horror flick gets off to a terrific start with a tentacle subtly exiting a young woman's nether regions and much of the subsequent film is carried forward by this WTF opening and the uncertainty of how it relates the events that unfold. The film takes a very long time to merge its central drama with the tentacle stuff though and the drama is of soap opera proportions. This is daringly different for sure, but it didn't exactly satisfy me.

FTV:18:The Night of a Thousand Cats (1972) (Mexico.) 2.

Image

Scrolling round a crumbling castle with the meow of cats in the air, co-writer/(with Mario A. Zacarias) director Rene Cardona Jr. & cinematographer Alex Phillips at first look like they are aiming for a Gothic Horror with a hot jet-set couple surrounded by countless vicious fur balls. Appearing to have purchased footage by the yarn,Cardona Jr. Throws every chance for Gothic shocks or sleaze aside, in exchange for dire helicopter stock footage, which only lands for plodding slow-motion footage to replace it with. In the handful of moments the screenplay by Cardona Jr. & Zacarias has the chance to get the main relationship to progress, they just leave them both dressed chic and looking at each other, until the 1000 cats dump them in the litter tray.

I made quite a long list of possibles for this challenge including half a dozen I'd really like to see. However, with one thing (cough cough honk) and another (... ...) I can't want to watch anything very challenging at present. Too bad, but I may get to some of them yet before the month is out.
:run: STILL the Gaffer!

morrison!!

Groovy is the right word, yeah! A singing ranchero, two intergalactic babes (one of them also a vampiress from space played by the foxy Lorena Velázquez, who would go on as full vampire in my favorite Santo film ('Santo vs. las mujeres vampiro')), a group of amazing male monsters from different planets - Image -, a robot named Torr, and much more. Guaranteed fun (forget your brain cells though).

What a wonderful selection of Mexican vintage horrors you've been seeing, I'm loving it!

The opening half-hour is pretty great here with washed out colours, a Psycho-like music score and some really WTF mind-bending, unexplained stuff. Once the film reveals the cause of all the weirdness though, it falls apart. The solution is interesting, but the second half of the film goes nowhere after the solution is presented. The similarity to The Twilight Zone also made it feel to me like this would have worked better as a short TV episode.

You can cross St. Lucia off now... and I have a Jamaican film lined up to go for later this week. :thumbsup:

I have some shorts lined up for a few of those remaining territories, but I don't know if I'll end up going for another short film marathon. :mellow:

I'd love to see this. I'm always interested in survival movies, especially lost at sea movies.

Told through a mix of interviews, reenactment and voice-over narration, this documentary provides an interesting snapshot of what happened to six men from St. Lucia who became lost at sea for three weeks in 1985 when their boat motor died. Particularly interesting is the insight into the madness and sickness brought on by drinking seawater, as well as the interviewee's vivid comments on his feelings over an incident that happen 30 years earlier.
I'd love to see this. I'm always interested in survival movies, especially lost at sea movies.
