Comedy, Satanic, Experimental, Mixtape, Counter Culture, Everything Is Terrible; DVD - New
The beauty in this insane bowl of VHS mashed potatoes is how, after 72 minutes, everything feels like it is exactly in the right place, and what a terrible terrible place that turns out to be. What makes EIT's TGS great is that it clearly relishes in the nihilist fringe of the culture-jammers. Nihilism, in these troubled, modern times, can be a wonderful thing and that's what we have here. That it makes a fool out of the leaders and followers behind "Satanic Panic" type movements/media is just gravy. Let The Great Satan wash over you.......

Japan, Shock, Gore, Blood, Infamous, Nasty, Erotic, Roughie, Disturbing; DVD - New Sealed
Two females seem to suffer from past traumas. Both commit blood-filled suicides with way more imaginary/graphic ways than just shotgun-to-mouth. There is no dialogs at all, porn-movie-like music plays on background while the girls are getting cut and so on. If you like blood, more blood, toothbrush, a fork, and japan shock, this is a must see. Low-grade, Japanese obscurity Women's Flesh: My Red Guts consists of two shot-on-video segments depicting grueling scenes of graphic self-mutilation, all designed to appear as gut-churningly real as possible: in the first, a woman chews off one of her fingers and chokes herself to death with a scarf; the woman in part two stabs herself in the leg with a fork, cuts open her belly, chows down on her guts, slices off her tongue, and eventually kills herself by thrusting the fork into her forehead. There's no plot to speak of and hardly any dialogue—just plenty of extremely bloody imagery designed to appease fans of ultra-violent, transgressive pseudo-snuff. This super-sick effort certainly has the right look and feel to it

Pinku, Japanese, Roughie, Classic, Violent, Erotic, Cult, Torture; Arrow Blu-ray - New Sealed
“From the outrageous imagination of cult director Teruo Ishii (Orgies of Edo, Horrors of Malformed Men) comes this infamous omnibus of three shocking tales of crime and punishment based on true-life documented cases set during the reign of the Tokugawa shogunate.
The first tale sees the beautiful Mitsu (Masumi Tachibana) going to horrifying lengths to tend to her older brother Shinzō (Teruo Yoshida), a carpenter injured in a work accident, but the law catches up on them and metes out a terrifying retribution after they violate the ultimate taboo. In the second, unfettered passions in a Buddhist nunnery are not allowed to go unpunished after abbess Reihō (Yukie Kagawa) and her attendant Rintoku (Naomi Shiraishi) encounter a virile young monk from a neighboring temple. In the closing segment, a sadistic torturer (Fumio Watanabe) attempts to show a tattoo artist (Asao Koike) how to depict convincing expressions of faces of pain in his work by allowing him to sketch a selection of Europeans as they are tortured for entering Japan with the aim of spreading Christianity. Ishii’s notorious portmanteau of Edo-era excess signaled a change in direction for a director until then regarded for his crime and yakuza films, setting the ball rolling on the run of grotesque historical anthologies for which he is now best remembered. Vehemently denounced by the critics of the day, Shogun’s Joy of Torture set a new benchmark for the depiction of sex, sadism and depravity in Japanese exploitation, with Ishii staging his elaborate torture methods with an unmatched verve and inventiveness.

Avant Garde, Theory, Film, Experimental Film, Surreal; Paperback Book (136 pages) - VG+ Used condition
Avant-Garde Film: Forms, Themes and Passions examines the variety of concerns and practices that have comprised the long history of avant-garde film at a level appropriate for undergraduate study. It covers the developments of experimental film-making since the modernist explosion in the 1920s in Europe through to the Soviet film experiments, the American Underground cinema and the French New Wave, structuralism and contemporary gallery work of the young British artists. Through in-depth case-studies, the book introduces students not only to the history of the avant-garde but also to varied analytical approaches to the films themselves - ranging from abstraction (Richter, Ruttmann) to surreal visions (Bunuel, Wyn Evans), underground subversion (Jack Smith, Warhol) to experimental narrative (Deren and Antonioni).
Controversial, Masterpiece, Religious Fanatic, Brutal, Nasty, Banned, Uncensored; 2xDVD and booklet - Ex Used condition
A few movies are so controversial that the Movie industry does their best to kill them off (see Terry Gilliams' "Brazil"). Such was the case with "The Devils" First, to clear a few things up...this did NOT come from a play, nor was it a novel. It is based on Aldous Huxley's painstakingly researched religious history of the famous Loudun exorcisms during the time of Richelieu. Two years before 'The Exorcist' hits the screen, Ken Russell puts the Catholic Church in the spotlight by filming one of the most disturbing films of all times. Except from being a sheer technical and aesthetic masterpiece, 'The Devils' provokes as a film with its relentless sense of anarchy. Religious hysteria and illusions, the horror of human arrogance and depravity and the love that turns to cherishing that turns to hatred. It's hard to put it in words, one must simply watch it to understand the simple splendor of this film. This film was met with great controversy and opposition due to its contents and depictions of blasphemy. Cited by director Alex Cox and critic Mark Kermode as one of the ten greatest achievements in cinema of all time. This film is for open-minded viewers only...

Banned, Violent, Gore, Cannibal, Horror, Found Footage, Controvercial, Deluxe; 2xDVD - Ex Used condition
Banned and heavily censored the world over, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST was for years reviled as one of the most repugnant and morally questionable films ever made, and possibly the most horrifying ever. Cannibal Holocaust presents the "found footage" of a group of 4 documentary filmmakers who experience brutal death at the hands of a savage South American tribe of flesh-eaters. This footage is so intense, so graphic and so unflinching in its realism that the director & producer of Cannibal Holocaust were arrested upon its original release and the film was seized. Savage, Uncompromising, and reprehensible, Ruggero Deodatos's Cannibal Holocaust is easily the most controversial film ever made - a brutal slice of exploitation that no one today would dare make. Few pictures can match Holocaust's raw, undeniable power, which has been imitated, but never quite equaled. Sit back and strap yourself in for the definitive release of the most controversial movie ever made!
Rare, Animation, Hubley, Academy Award, Short; DVD - Ex Used condition
The first volume of a three-disc survey of the films of the innovative Hubley Studio offers two of their best known shorts: the Academy Award-winning "Moonbird" (1959) and the Oscar-nominated "Windy Day" (1967). In these shorts, independent animators John and Faith Hubley explored new ways of presenting a child's world through film. They recorded their children's voices as they spun out fantasies to create a giggling, rambling soundtrack. In "Moonbird," two brothers prowl their backyard by night, seeking to capture the shy moonbird. Two sisters spend an summer afternoon at the seashore, playing games and speculating about what the future may hold for them in "Windy Day." The upbeat "People, People, People" (1975) examines the history of human habitation in North America, from 17,760 B.C. to A.D. 1976. Benny Carter's genially propulsive score helps the filmmakers present even unpleasant aspects of history with imagination and good humor. In "Enter Life" (1981), carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen atoms assemble to form the molecules essential to all life in a series of chemical reactions that suggest a microcosmic dance. "Amazonia" (1989) draws on indigenous myths to present a plea to save the rapidly vanishing Brazilian rain forest. --Charles Solomon
