The Warrior Sequels? Forget it!

Thanks to all the crappy collectors and supposedly movie fans out there we won't be seeing any of the WARRIOR sequels from Mondo Macabro. I jumped with joy when I first found out about the release of THE WARRIOR (aka Jaka Sembung), and I bought it right away. And when I heard about the release of four more movies in the series, I didn't even know that there was a ''series'', I nearly came. Four sequels and a total of five THE WARRIOR movies being released by Mondo Macabro!? Holy shit!

But no, unfortunately this won't happen, because the sales “where dreadful” – according to Pete from Mondo Macabro;

“A big loss for us on that one, so I can't see those other ones ever coming out. Leastways, not from us! But, never say never, as the expression goes.”

But why did the sale go so bad? Because of economy, so people rather download then buy movies? I just lost my job, but guess what? I’m still buying movies, and beer and cigarettes for those awesome movie nights that we have here in Norway on an almost daily basis. Fuck you downloader’s and hail Mondo Macabro!

“I don't think the wide availability of our version on torrent sites exactly helped. Thanks, guys! Hope I can return the compliment some day in some way” – Pete, Mondo Macabro.

Keep releasing good, bizarre and weird movies, Pete. The true fans will always back you up and enjoy the wildside of world cinema.

Lazy, but bearded III

I'm not actually lazy this time. I just lost my job, so things have been hectic, to say the least. But I'll get around to write something very soon.

Barbado cinematográfica aficionado ataca de nuevo

The title might translate bad, but that was the best I could do.

Anyways, I won these little beauties last night:

They are the Spanish one sheets of Dawn of the Dead and Cannibal Holocaust. The Dawn of the Dead poster is supposedly very hard to find, which makes this an even bigger pleasure. These posters are going to get the best treatment, they will be hanging on the wall in massive gold frames.

They both measure 27x39 inches.
This is going to look beautiful on the wall.

Download shit - Buy art!

I’ve always been against downloading. But I download TV Shows and music: Music, so I can check out a band. I’m not going to risk a bad purchase when it comes to music, but I’ll buy it if I like it. And TV Shows, because I can’t wait for it to air on Norwegian Television.

BUT I don’t like downloading, and I have always bought DVD’s, and still do. Mainly because I am a collector, but also because I feel that it is wrong. I hate the anti-download commercials, but as they say; it’s stealing. Now, we all know that the horror genre hasn’t got a good treatment recently with all the remakes currently being made. There are 50 remakes in production or pre-production in Hollywood right now. And most of them are perfect movies, which have withstood the test of time and are classics to horror fans and fans of movies in general. But some of them have barely got their theatrical release when Hollywood starts planning the remake. I think the remake of REC - Quarantine, is the perfect example of how fast remakes are being made today. And recently I thought about it; when is this going to stop? Never! Because they top theatre and DVD-charts, and that is because people go and see them at the cinema, and buy the DVD’s, of course.

I am one of them; I buy them and watch them at the cinema, because I don’t download. But I am now pro-download - but only of shitty horror remakes. I downloaded Quarantine last night. A movie I don’t even think I want to see, but I’m not going to buy the piece of shit. So I’ve found a loophole in my own belief. You can download! As long it is a shitty fucking remake. Fuck you Hollywood. Never again am I going to purchase your remakes legally.

What the hell is it with Americans anyway? Do you seriously have to remake a movie just because you can’t handle subtitles? Then dub the freakin’ things! I understand you in some ways; I don’t like subtitles either, it keeps me distracted from what’s going on, on the screen.
But I love foreign movies, mostly Italian and Asian, so I have to deal with that. And when there is a choice between – Lets say: Italian Dub or English Dub, I use the Italian Dub and English Subtitles – Because I want to make the experience as real as possible.

There are good remakes. But most of them where made in the 70’s or 80’s - Jon Carpenters The Thing and David Cronenbergs The Fly are one of the best. And this was prime time for horror.

Keep downloading these god-awful movies, and maybe then Hollywood will get creative again.

I finally got a copy of Rambu! This is the swedish ex-rental. It is not the most beautiful cover, but I've been looking for it for so many months. And they always went for $150. And at last I can enjoy the wonderful world of Rambu!

Here it is:

The alternate cover looks better; (But hey! It's Rambu)
