“A family consisting of a patriarch, his much younger wife, his troubled sister, his sons, and their wives go on a vacation to a remote Mediterranean island where years earlier the father and sons had murdered the lower-class lover of their sister/aunt. At first there are a lot of sexual shenanigans–one of the brothers succumbs to the temptation of his impotent brother’s hot-to-trot wife, the father’s young wife is carrying on with his other son right in the room where the man’s own wife slumbers. Eventually though the guests begin to be picked off one-by-one in rather grisly fashion, and the movie gets a lot more interesting…“[imdb | lazarillo]

YPOTRON – Final Countdown

In Paprika Chips, Save European Home on August 29, 2012 at 12:41 pm

Title: YPOTRON – Final Countdown
Production: Italy 1966
Director: Giorgio Stegani
Cast: Luis Dávila
Run Time: 100min
Circulation: PAL DVDR
Generation/Source: VHS Master
Language: German, English
Subtitles: none

Transferred to DVD by CG user kuenfist, using a master copy of the German retail VHS as source material. An additional English audio track was added by ways of the Greek VHS release

“Ypotron boasts a colorful sci-fi pop art pre-credit sequence. A sliding door opens to reveal our hero, dressed in a tuxedo, who puts on a pair of night vision glasses. He enters the room and while trying to figure out a strange design on the wall is shot in the back with a machine gun. It turns out he was testing his bullet-proof vest but it was a fun introduction to world of Lemmy Logan (Luis Davila).
We are treated to a terrific score by Nico Fidenco throughout the film and the swinging theme song is performed by The Sorrows. This film has enough bad guys for three movies and the confusing plot doesn’t help any. Things to look forward to are scenes with wind tunnel peril (it had to happen), a strange stripper act, and dialog that loses something in the translation. Note: the bloodthirsty of you will enjoy the bullfight scenes where you witness the actual killing of a bull.
Our heroes get to use all manner of fancy gadgets in their pursuit of evil. Lighter communicators get a workout and there’s an instant oil slick capsule to derail those bad guys chasing you. They use a briefcase movie camera which not only develops the film automatically but will also project it onto a tiny screen, a receiver in a Norelco shaver, a nifty gadget that makes phones ring, and a radar tracking device in a Bible!
So what is Ypotron? It is `the first space weapon’ and with it you can rule the world!” [imdb | vjetorix]

Il Marchio Di Kriminal

Circulation: PAL DVDR
Generation/Source: DVD Master
Language: Italian
Subtitles: English

Custom DVD that used the Italian “Pulp Video” release as source material. Project realized by LDiablo3000 with English subtitles by Mogweezer.

“Second and last entry in the “Kriminal” series – good-looking, light-weight Italian capers with an exotic touch originating from a comic strip. Whereas the first film concerned a string of diamond robberies (from what I’m able to recollect), this involves the search for a couple of missing paintings by world-renowned artists – the map of the location in question is hidden inside four identical statues of a Buddha. As in KRIMINAL (1966), the quest sends our anti-hero globe-trotting – London (his escape from an Istanbul prison, where his initial adventure had concluded, having occurred off-screen), Spain and, then, across the sea to the desert of Lebanon (the Goya and Rembrandt works are kept in an ancient tomb!).” [imdb| Mario Gauci]

Der grüne Bogenschütze

In London Calling, Paprika Chips on August 28, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Title: Der grüne Bogenschütze (The Green Archer)
Production: Germany 1961
Director: Jürgen Roland
Cast: Karin Dor
Run Time: 89min
Circulation: PAL DVDR
Generation/Source: DVD Master
Language: German
Subtitles: English

The source for this custom DVD was the German “Universum” release. English subtitles were added by CG user kubelot. The original source otherwise remains untouched.

“This is an adaptation of one of Edgar Wallace’s most famous stories. The plot has Valerie Howett and her family moving into a mansion somewhere in England. The estate next door belongs to Abel Bellamy (Gert Frobe), an American of questionable background. Bellamy would prefer that no one live near by, especially the Howetts. In typical Edgar Wallace fashion there are multiple seemingly parallel story lines, Scotland Yard investigating Bellamy, Valerie trying to find out what happened to her long lost mother, and the mysterious and legendary Green Archer of the title, who appears to get vengeance on enemies of his family; which all converge in the final act. The while the plot is needlessly convoluted, it keeps things interesting for its 90 minute running time (it also prevents a simple explanation of the story).” [imdb | dbborroughs]

Language: English, Italian & German
Subtitles: English

Captured from Italian dTV by CG user “nikko”. Re-authored by CG users alomaco78 and pipipip with English and German audio tracks.

“This German/Italian spinoff of the 60ie’s James Bond-wave shows another trial to find another smart agent as Connery performed it. Paul Hubschmid does his job as “Super Seven” quite smartly, a bit too smart sometimes, but as an secret agent man quite acceptable. In the movies from that time you’ll never miss the masks made of some “special” or “secret” material, and you’ll find them here as well – we encounter only 5 or 6 of them although the title promises a 1000 masks. The trick of changing someones identity is done …hm… as usual (Mission Impossible-like).” [imdb | seber selbst]
