“Part man. Part machine. All cop. The future of law enforcement.”
Explicit gore was beginning to infiltrate the grindhouses of America, and ensured that employees of the British Board of Film Censors were working hard for their salaries. Strong reactions from the public, fuelled by politicians, tabloids and critics, set in motion outrage that would result in many splatter films being outright banned; especially in the United Kingdom.
“I created what no man’s mind nor woman’s womb could ever hope to achieve.”
Before Umberto Lenzi’s 1981 exploitation film Cannibal Ferox (aka Make Them Die Slowly) was “banned in 31 countries”, Almost Human had a reputation as a particularly nasty Italian crime thriller.
The late, great Tomas Milian (The Designated Victim) stars as the sadistic, criminal low life Giulio Sacchi, a man capable of rape, torture and murder.
“CAUTION: This picture may shock you, but it’s an experience in psychosadism you’ll never forget!”
This film was typical of the drive-in features Claudia Jennings appeared in the early 1970’s, with one notable exception. Although Truck Stop Women demonstrated what audiences would identify as the quintessential Claudia Jennings character, this was no working class, feminist hero Karen Walker from Unholy Rollers… In this film, Claudia commits about every original sin and violates a few new ones. She could easily be considered one of the screen’s best villains- a living nightmare, having no feelings for fellow human beings, and perhaps the sexiest sociopath of all time.
“No rig was too big for them to handle!”
Fright-Rags have teamed up with the Colonial Marines at 20th Century Fox to release a collection of apparel for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant; now in theaters nationwide.

“I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass… and I’m all out of bubblegum.”
The South Korean film industry has enjoyed a twenty year renaissance especially in the thriller/horror/gore genres. The release of Oldboy (2003) put South Korean cinema back on the map, after seeing its once glorious traditions wane for many years. I Saw the Devil is the penultimate representative of this new style of Korean cinema, with acting, cinematography, direction and production values equal to any of the world’s leading movie centers.
“Don’t act so weak… this is just the beginning. Remember… your nightmare’s only getting worse!”
Where the hell am I supposed to find silver bullets? What!? You can acquire them for us? Then you’re the perfect candidate for The Monster Squad. Join the goddamn club with Fright-Rags’ collection of merchandise dedicated to Fred Dekker’s 1987 cult classic.
“You know who to call when you have ghosts but who do you call when you have monsters?”
Comet, the free network dedicated to science fiction and horror programming, is back with the best of the best, or in many cases, the best of the worst!
“For they shall inherit the earth…sooner than you think!”
Coming into this movie I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I absolutely love monster movies, I always have. Kong: Skull Island is a total throwback to the fun, action adventure movies we got throughout the 80’s and early 90’s. There’s so much to like here and it’s hard not to enjoy, so even though it’s had respectable reviews, it certainly hasn’t taken the world by storm. Don’t get me wrong it’s not going to win any awards, but it’s clear that wasn’t it’s aim. It’s main purpose is to give the audience a nostalgic, happy time and to entertain.
“All hail the King.”
In Predator, John McTiernan’s 1987 sci-fi cult classic, Arnold Schwarzenegger taught us that “If it bleeds, we can kill it!”. For the 30th anniversary, Fright-Rags has released the Predator Collection; and the return of their popular mask and t-shirt box sets.
