Land of the Minotaur


Also known as The Devil's Men.


A 1976 film, the production team and many of the actors being from Greece, where it was made. Peter Cushing and Donald Pleasence have leading roles though, but these two British heavyweight actors can't save this clunker of a movie. For the record, Cushing is the leader of an evil cult based around the Ancient Minoan Minotaur, to which unsuspecting foreign tourists are sacrificed after being captured. Pleasence, as a Catholic Priest, is our hero and somehow vanquishes the cultists by reciting some prayers at them after breaking into their lair.

My version of this was on a Mill Creek dvd in a pretty poor, unrestored condition. The YouTube clips below seem to be from much better prints.

Frankenstein (2004).

It was closer to the book than any other Frankenstein movie I know of.

Unhinged.

Intense road rage movie where Russel Crowe plays a hapless character driven to a psychotic break who harasses a troubled soon-to-be-divorced housewife and mother over a bad street encounter. Kept me on the edge of my seat!

he has been banned from at least one airline for abusing staff and the same for at least one hotel when he assaulted a staff member. IRL he is a real piece of work.

The Flesh And Blood Show

This is a 1972 release from director Pete Walker. His films are often elevated to 'cult' status, but are on the whole a bit overrated, I feel. Nonetheless, this is a fair bit better than his Die Screaming Marianne, which was reviewed here a few weeks ago. it's a murder mystery type film, with horror elements, which has been compared with Italian 'Giallo' movies and American slashers, but it doesn't fully fit into either category.

It struggles to attain much momentum for the first hour or so, but comes to life in the final 25 minutes, where a flashback scene that explains everything is the highlight. Typically for a Walker film, it features a number of attractive young actresses like Luan Peters, Jane Cardew, Judy Matheson and Jenny Hanley, who all at some point take their clothes off for one reason or another.

In some versions the flashback section is in 3D, as in the YouTube upload below, which makes it difficult or impossible to watch - a pity, as it's really the best bit of the film...

EDIT: Showing as 'age-restricted' at my end. Probably means you have to have a Google or YouTube account to access it. :|
