El Monstro Del Mar (OZ, 2010)

Bloody hell! LOL. I just discovered this trailer for EL MONSTRO DEL MAR (thanks to Brian of Worldside Cinema for posting). Don't get fooled by the title, this isn't old Mexican (not that there's anything wrong with that as I'm sure you've realised if you've followed me a while!) but a new gory horror flick from Australia. It hasn't premiered yet but will do so in Melbourne on the 9th of April (so if you're close to the Astor in St Kilda you now know what to do on the 9th. xD). It looks like good fun.

The Hunted (Philippines, 1970)

I won this Filipino movie on eBay today. As with so many of these films info, any kind of info, is scarce. The director is Cesar Amigo who also wrote the screenplay for THE BLOOD DRINKERS (1964) which is one of my favourite Filipino films. Charito Solis, Mario Monte and Fred Galang are all in the movie and according to the Greek seller (Onar-Bill) it is a:

[...] nasty exploitation revenge colossus, with tons of gratuitious violence plus some trashy fulci-ish gore, like acid on face that melts like a pizza!!!

I certainly hope he's right. xD

Here the original Filipino poster. Thanks to Andrew for making me aware of it. It comes courtesy of the amazing Video48 blog in the Philippines.
