Re: Takashi Ishii thread (A Night in Nude: Salvation etc.)

Now that Dolly Girlfriend is out on R2J, can anyone confirm if its still censored? The cinema version was full of fogging? The DVD release is still full of fogging. I don't quite understand when and why they apply it. There are quite a few shots in which pubic hair is visible and is left unfogged i...

Re: Hana-Dama (Lolita Vibrator Torture director, 2014)

I'm a big fan of Sato's work from the 80ies and early 90ies. The past 15 years or so haven't been kind to him, though. I suppose the work environment he was able to thrive in just doesn't exist anymore. His segement in RANPO JIGOKU was alright and it was good to see him working again with regular sc...

Re: Japanese cult cinema thread

The reason why I haven't posted in Toei updates recently is because they haven't made any. I emailed Toei and they said they haven't stopped releasing catalogue titles, but they also don't have anything planned for this year anymore. I hope they will resume catalogue releases next year. Thanks for ...

Re: Score (1995) (amazing Japanese Tarantino/Woo/Lam rip-off

Whatever happened to Atsushi Muroga anyway? The guy made some pretty entertaining B-movies in the late 90ies/early 00s. SCORE, JUNK and a couple of those GUN CRAZY films all entertained me. Sure, his films were never original but I thought he was able to infuse them with a lot of energy and he's cer...

Re: Mad Bull 34 anime finally getting a release on DVD

Discotek is pretty much the anime label I'd run if I were running an anime label. They are incredibly smart to focus on titles from the 70ies, 80ies and 90ies because not only are those way cheaper to license than the most recent moe harem show from my own personal hell, they're also exploiting (in ...

Don't be too sad. I've watched both cuts of the film twize now and, just like with Takashi Ishii's A NIGHT IN NUDE: SALVATION, I actually greatly prefer the shorter, international edit. I find these longer Japanese cuts to be more like the "extended cuts" we routinely get of Hollywood flic...

I really like Kawatani in SHOGUN'S SADISM but not so much in everything else I've seen him in. Could be that his over-acting just suited the character he played in that film.

Re: Classic Japanese Exploitation (pinky violence & pink)

And yes, that's Reiko Ike from Norifumi Suzuki's Sex & Fury in the cover art, for some reason.../ That's really odd, even if they'll possibly release SEX & FURY as part of Volume 2, as I suspect. Maybe there was some shuffling around of titles and they didn't bother to change the cover art?...

Re: Japanese cult cinema thread

Decapitation has a pretty wild cover... remember that one from the pinky violence book, too. Misleading? I'd say the poster/cover promises something that is more sleazy than the actual film turns out to be. Oden certainly doesn't have her breasts hanging out in the climactic scene. It's an entertai...

Re: Japanese cult cinema thread

I enjoyed TORN PRIESTESS; Toei dvd is impressive. I was surprised and pleased that even after years of lusting after an uncut version in the correct aspect ratio the film managed to top my expectations. I'm still reeling from the dance number. One expectation that wasn't met is that I still have no...
