A kuenfist project about which he says: “Hello friends of the spanish – italian – mexican gothic horror movies. Today i bring you my new custom DVD of ” The Strange Love of the Vampires”. For the DVD i used a very rare old german VHS tape from my buddy the VHS detective. The big problem with this prestine tape was, that the movie is like the dutch tape too,very very dark . After the rip in the highest resolution i used Avi Synth Filter to fix it. The colors where also corrected. Very difficult way to go and it is still dark but around 50 % percent better than before. So don’t expect brightness and contrast as normal, use your remote control on your tv till you have it like you want.”

Sexploitative vampire film directed by Leon Klimovsky. Catherine (Emma Cohen) is a young woman who falls in love with a mysterious aristocrat after a one night stand. Hauntingly, she senses his calling and goes to his sinister castle which is inhabited by vampires. There the castle dwelling vampire Count Rudolph and his bloodsucking followers terrorize the Spanish countryside in search of young female victims. Excellent atmosphere, decrepit scenery and plenty of vampire action and sexploitative acts make this everything you’d expect from a 1970’s Spanish horror/vampire film. Taken from Midnight Video. Enjoy this rare spanish classic from Director Leon Klimovsky in the maybe best version till there is a offical release.

bersaglio_altezza_uomo1

A hipcamp project, adding an Italian dub and English subs to a rip of the German rental tape.

“This is surely one of the lamest poliziotteschi I’ve ever come across, with just about the only thing going for it being the unusual and exotic Istanbul locations. Even nominal star Luc Merenda is underused; in fact, a lot of the running time is devoted to a Turkish family man who happens to be an infallible sharpshooter, and is unwillingly recruited by the mob in order to eliminate narc cop Merenda (whom he has actually just befriended!). One of the funniest things in the film is the fact that every male in Turkey is seen to be sporting a moustache! Otherwise, the concoction is the same as before: tough hero (heroes in this case), above-the-law financiers discussing their criminal business around a dinner table, their vicious thugs and abused molls, kidnappings, fisticuffs, shoot-outs, a bit of gratuitous nudity, bad disco soundtrack, etc.” [imdb]

Halloween_3_poster_01
A moviemayne project about which he says: “You might be asking yourself,what is the difference between the DVD version and the TV version?Basically they took a shitty movie and made it even shittier! The version on television is as follows: The opening sequence is in a letterbox format, as well as the first shot of Harry Grimbridge running out of the tunnel; the music from the TV is somewhat mismatched from the dialogue as Walter Jones watches; an additional line from the Silver Shamrock masks from the commercials that tells people to watch the big giveaway is heard before the power goes out; all uses of God’s name in vain is removed; Marge’s line of “They got their orders all screwed up” is changed to “all messed up”; Marge Guttman’s misfire accident is violence-trimmed, so the music is mismatched to the scene and it edits a few moments of footage; Buddy Kupfer’s line of, “Sticky toilet paper” is changed to “sticky dwarf toys”; the shot of snakes coming out of Little Buddy in Test Room A is removed so the deaths of Buddy and Betty are mysterious.”

“A large Halloween mask-making company has plans to kill millions of American children with something sinister hidden in Halloween masks.” [imdb]

L’Ossessa

A kuenfist project abut which he says: Hello friends of the italian cinema. Today i bring you my new custom DVD of L’Ossessa. For the DVD i used the first german VHS release. This rare VHS tape of my good friend the VHS detective is in a prestine condition and has in the credits the original name of the movie L’Ossessa and not as in the second release Verteufelt. The only problem with the tape was the picture was very dark and heavy interlaced. So i ripped it with high contrast using the picturesettings of my dvdrecorder with the highest bitrate. For the mastering i used AviSynth to deinterlace the picture in uncompressed avimode. Only a little noisereduction where done in AviSynth no Neatvideo where used to get the picture sharp and realistic and not overcleaned !!! I did about 10 encodes with diffrent encoders to get the best result for the mpeg stream of the movie. Than i dubbed the movie in english and italian using sources that i found here. The english version has about 2 minutes of dialog cut, therefor i used the italian track. About 10 minutes are cut in the italian version, here you can here the english track. The english and italian audiotracks where cleaned up as good as possible. The duration is 83 minutes uncut because the german version has not the credits as you can find in the italian version. The italian credits are only a green screen with cast…. so it is not important. I know there are several version in circulation alread, but now you have a DVD with the correct aspect ratio anamorphic and english and italian audio.

“I got this film in a collection with 50 other films under the title “The Eerie Midnight Horror Show”. I watched this one, because I was expecting a horror film that revolved around a radio or television program. I was not expecting an Italian Exorcist film. This one is most certainly that, and not what I was expecting. I am not really into possession movies, so if I knew it was going to be a remake I would not have watched it. The film did not really start out like an exorcism film, as it had this art student helping a man pick up some sculpture in a church. There was even a scene as the girl worked on a painting that seemed like it might have a radio show or something involved as the sculpture seemed to mess with the radio the female was listening to, but no…turned into the Exorcist. Granted a more sex filled Exorcist, but The Exorcist nonetheless. The story has a young woman helping someone pick up a strange sculpture of a man on a cross. She begins to have visions of a sexual nature and soon she is diagnosed possessed. A priest tells her parents that she needs a priest that deals with exorcisms, but they are virtually nonexistent, however there is one right down the road. Add a pointless plot point involving the mother, most likely to pad the film and a lot of other padding. Then we have a very weak and non memorable showdown! The film had some good scenes to it, though it probably would have made a better adult film as at times at the beginning it had an adult film feel to it. The title of the film, I watched it under did not fit at all, but its main one here does. I think they should have just called it the Spaghetti Exorcism and had Clint Eastwood as the priest at the end. Now that would have been epic! Of course, he most likely would have grabbed the chain and taken it, wrapped it around the girl and thrown her into the well before lighting up a cigar and then the camera freezes credits roll. If it did that, I would have given the film a 10!” [imdb]

Dr. Satán Y La Magia Negra

In Exotic Nuts on October 30, 2013 at 12:47 am

Title: Dr. Satán Y La Magia Negra (Dr. Satan Versus Black Magic)
Production: Mexico 1968
Director: Rogelio A. González
Cast: Joaquín Cordero, Sonia Furió, Noé Murayama
Run Time: 94min
Circulation: NTSC DVDr
Generation/Source: VHS Rip
Language: Spanish
Subtitles: English

A sjb224 project, about which he says: Custom menus and fansubs included for this (subs are on by default). This is a longer cut compared to the tvrip already here (tvrip – 1:22:58 / this rip – 1:34:03). Many thanks to Agropio for providing the original subs. I was able to persuade my friend into translating the additional/extended scenes that weren’t included in the tvrip. I added his translations and retimed the entire srt. The extra 11+ minutes improves upon plot development, making better sense of some scenes (such as the henchmen’s break-in at Professor Sorenson’s hotel) along with more character development and a bit more dialogue. Also of note, this is a sequel to Dr Satan, although it’s not required viewing to understand what’s going on here but it’s still recommended. Obviously, this one doesn’t have a tv logo and while the tvrip seems to have nicer color/contrast, after doing a side-by-side comparison throughout, there’s actually some detail lost in the darker scenes in the tvrip vs. this rip. This rip is also a lot less cropped and has more picture on the sides compared with the tv version.

Dr. Satan versus Black Magic (poster)

In the infernals of hell, the King demon orders Dr. Satan to return to earth to destroy Yei Lin, a powerful Wizard of black magic, and steal the formula that transforms all metals into gold in order to become the master of the world.”That pretty much sums it up. This is another fun, garishly colored, horror film from South of the Border. Sexy femme zombies, the Devil, an Asian vampire, murder, rubber bats, a fight in Dr Satan’s laboratory, girls in open coffins, a machine that turns metal into gold and a trip to Hell itself! A psychotronic vibe as evil battles evil.
