Considered by many Italian film fans, to be the great Italian horror (1997’s The Wax Mask by Sergio Silvetti is neither great nor a well made horror), Dellamorte Dellamore is part Evil Dead and part unhinged whimsicalness via Terry Gilliam. Directed by Argento protégé Michele Soavi, this last great Italian horror is based on the cult Dylan Dog comics by author Tiziano Sclavi.
So for more of the wonderfully great Italian horror by Michele Soavi thanks to Dom, enjoy. PRESS PLAY ►

So indulge yourself in some bad film horror in the only way the 80s could. PRESS PLAY ►

Honestly there is one subgenre within the viewing habits of the average cult film enthusiast that needs a little more love. Specifically this would be the Blaxploitation film from the 1970’s to early 1980’s. These films where really a breed of their own and utterly perfect for their time period.
So Dominic has brought us one of his favs, the Kung-fu Afro kicking, jive talking, smooth mother shut your mouth, Black Belt Jones. PRESS PLAY ►
