Woo-hoo!! I've finally secured getting the third and last of Hugh Gallagher's underground gore trilogy from the early 90s!! The film is GOROTICA (1993) which I've been trying to find for ages! For some reason the only film from the series which gets listed on eBay is GORE WHORE (1994), however, a couple of days ago I noticed that no less than four different sellers had it on Amazon.com. I tried to place an order with every one them but they all had it listed for purchase in the US only! :/ So I wrote to the first one and asked if he would sell it to me directly. He said no. I asked the second one. He said no. Then today I got word from the third one and fortunately he said yes. Luckily I didn't have to try the last one as his tape was 20 dollars more expensive then the first two. The one I ended up buying was $5 more expensive than the first two but I can certainly live with that. Great stuff indeed!!! Read my review of GORE WHORE here. The first film in the series is GOREGASM from 1990.
Yes, it's Andreas Schnass' epic German zombie movie ZOMBIE 90 from, ehh, when was it made again... LOL. Just fantastic! Made right after VIOLENT SHIT.
In the Flesh zine printed reviews of both films way back when they first came out. Ahhh, such glory memories. Forget about past Christmases, past holidays, and past everything else. Living in the UK and reading the original reviews (and interview) of these films in that long gone fanzine is what really matters. What really counts. Hahaha.
Originally released on oldskool video tape of course but now available on DVD. I hear there's a 3 disc BluRay edition on its way (no, not really!).
Also, check out this guy's review of the film. It's almost as fun as the film itself (I'm not sure if that's sad or what) [the sound is a little low during the first 20 sec. or so but it gets better. Stick with it!]
And before we close for today, here's one more clip. Romero, you watch and learn something from this, goddammit!!!
Oh, and I couldn't help myself so yesterday I found a store that still had a brand new copy of ZOMBIE 90 on glorious video tape. It's on its way as we speak. xD. Ahhh.
