“You don’t fuck with the king.”

Tales from Parts Unknown is a feature-length anthology film presenting four tales of terror directed by Cameron McCasland, and hosted by Larry Underwood as Dr. Gangrene.

“Strange things happen all around these parts!”
Spindrift is an American psychedelic rock band that travelled the American West for five weeks, where they exclusively performed in Ghost Towns and haunted locations. They documented all of their travels in the film Spindrift’s Haunted West; a whiskey-soaked psychedelic spaghetti western visual tour-de-force that brings viewers a unique, peyote inspired look behind the curtain of madness and into the Haunted West of yore… Now, Indican Pictures will debut this rock-and-roll documentary on DVD and Digital platforms in July. Fans of psychedelic rock can see for themselves what Spindrift has created.
“These were the ways of the west… This is the gunslinger!”
I’m going to be honest here; I don’t really know what happened in this movie. I mean I think I do, but I’m not entirely sure. So, apologies in advance to the filmmakers who obviously put so much work into this psychedelic (often referred to as “acid” or what I’ve dubbed “twistern”) western filmed primarily in Wales. A bounty hunter is hired to collect a…demon gunslinger? Story points are integrated into the plot just as they are in most movies, other than the great Godfrey Reggio’s experimental eye candy, sure. But do they add to the proceedings or just further confuse the world that’s been created?
“Better the Devil you know.”

Having gathered a cult following after pastiches of lurid European giallos in their first two features, in their 2017 film Let the Corpses Tan, Belgian duo Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani pay tribute to the violent European crime thrillers of the 1970s. Cattet and Forzani make it clear from the outset that this is a splatter film – in the opening scene, in an array of disorienting closeups – imperious, cigar-smoking, ‘artist’ Luce (Elina Löwensohn) insists on her acolytes firing a series of bullets into a canvas she has splashed with messy splodges of colour.
“Now, we have to kill ’em all!”
I don’t think it’s nice, you laughin’. You see, Local Boogeyman don’t like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you’re laughin’ at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you’re going to, I might convince him that you really didn’t mean it.
