De Lift

The first Horror Movie Night of 2011 brought us a tale of a killer…elevator? Yup, this was some good stuff. Horrible (horribly awesome) dubbing was the highlight of this experience.

Drinking game: drink a beverage of your choice every time you hear the word “chip”.

Watch this with: Dick Maas’ Amsterdamned (mid-year HMN selection that I have yet to see, but it HAS to be good, right?)

Female Priosoner 701 Scorpion
This is the first of the Pinky Violence films on my list. It was testing to see if it’s a genre to dig deeper into. I absolutely adored this film. The production design is very interesting…sometimes feeling like a stage, but other times designed especially for the camera. There were very basic Women in Prison exploitation elements, but also a lot of female empowerment and vengeance that created a well-rounded story. I’m definitely going to watch more Pinky Violence this year.

Double Feature: Watch this right before Shion Sono’s wonderful 4-hour Love Exposure, for better understanding of Ms. Scorpion (on the right).

N-Girls Vs Vampires

This is one of Takashi Miike’s many made-for-tv creations, which can be VERY hit or miss. Released cheapest essay writing service the same year as Dead or Alive and Audition! I liked this overall, but felt that the 3+ hour run time could have easily had the fat trimmed by up to an hour. Some kick-ass girl power moments that I would have loved to see more of.

Heroic Trio

I had not seen Heroic Trio since I was in college. This was my first introduction into the three leads: Michelle Yeoh, Anita Mui and Maggie Cheung. I adore all three of these actresses & am heartbroken that Anita Mui is no longer alive to contribute to amazing cinema.

Re-watching this was as exciting as I remembered.
