Grab your Walkman, your headphones, your roller skates, and press play! ▷ Islandrocks is about to give you an audible history of Italian and American cult cinema. Underrated Swedish musician Thomas Nyholm has been creating cover versions of exploitation, cult classic theme songs.
Swedish musician Thomas Nyholm, under the moniker of Islandrocks, creates these insanely good cover versions of exploitation, cult classic theme songs, such as City of the Living Dead (1980), Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979), Suspiria (1977), The Toxic Avenger (1986) and The New York Ripper (1982).
“We are going to dance the Fulci way! Zombie …the funk are among us!”
Under the moniker of Beyond Horror Design, James Stewart has created these incredible, retro-stylised trading cards, based on exploitation cult classics such as The Beyond (1981).
“Woe be unto him who opens one of the seven gateways to Hell, because through that gateway, evil will invade the world.”
Lucio Fulci’s The House by the Cemetery (1981) is notorious in the United Kingdom for being one of the 39 movies that were prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act in the 1980s. Dubbed a ‘video nasty’ by the garbage British tabloids, The House by the Cemetery was effectively banned from distribution and personal possession…
If you are prepared to endure the awful dubbing, The House by the Cemetery is deserving of its cult reputation.
“Read the fine print. You may have just mortgaged your life!”
Adapted from H.P. Lovecraft’s short story The Colour Out of Space, David Keith’s 1987 directional debut The Curse is remarkably faithful to the source material; albeit poorly executed.
I must admit that I was unaware that The Curse was a tale of Lovecraftian horror until I realised the thematic similarities to Daniel Haller’s Die, Monster, Die! (1965); wherein a radioactive meteorite hits Earth with horrific consequences.
“It takes your body. And your mind. Then it takes you straight to hell…”
From Shameless Screen Entertainment’s ever growing catalogue of horror and the unseen gems from the past, we bring you the tale of The Black Cat by Lucio Fulci. With gothic themes and a ripping story of a malevolent cat, the supernatural and murder, Lucio Fulci’s 1981 film has all the ingredients for the ideal Halloween treat. A tale that may send tingles down your spine and a hankering for what has been missing from modern day horror fare in what should be a classic.
