House of Whipcord (a preview for our thoughts on a 1974 movie with a similarly influenced title).

Standard

Some must-watch movies on one’s personal playlist include a dealmaker.  In this case, the dealmaker can’t be understated enough:  “Oh!  It has one of those cars?  Let me watch for another few seconds…”

To clarify:  It was one of those cars.

To elaborate on our interest:  It had this particular fur included.

We like fur.  And metal cars.  Mixed with skin.

Virgin Witch (1972)

Standard

We did watch this.  We had a lot to say (i.e. look for those upcoming updates we often speak about), and it is all written down, chiselled deep into subconscious stone.  Betty had some classic things to share.  Billy remembers laughing at things he could have shared.

Overall, we made it to the end.  On the first watching.  It says quite a bit, and we’ll feel less guilty if we never update this review preview into a fleshed out commentary due to it.

Always positive with some of these movies, it is on IMDB and it even has cover art existing for it on their page.  Surprisingly a sparse find for Billy and Betty during their investigations of watched movies.  Billy thinks it is why there is still more text occurring on this page.

Moments later, Billy still does.

Back to IMDB, this is what the web page had to share:

Christine gets her big chance at modelling when she applies at Sybil Waite’s agency. Together with Christine’s sister Betty they go to a castle for the weekend for a photo shoot. Sybil has lured Christine to the castle for more than modelling: she is recruiting a virgin for induction into a witch’s coven, led by the owner of the castle, Gerald. To their surprise, Christine is more than eager to join the coven, but begins her own secret battle for control.

It was like fifty minutes in, and Betty did ask where the magic was in the movie.   Seriously, where’s the witch-craft-magic??  There was some…a smidgen.  Not terribly much during the film’s climax.  All I remember of the end is some rather raunchy, skin-driven worshipping.  Lit with candles, and we all love candles here.

“I do feel there was a lack of presence of axes, but overall I didn’t turn it off.”  – Billy Black

“This is less like a horror, and more like an episode of Scoobybooby.”  – Betty Black

Jack Hunter and the Quest for Akhenaten’s Tomb (2008)

Standard

We haven’t determined if we will still review this movie.  Especially as we don’t remember how it ends.  It is hard sometimes being motivated to start watching something over more than once without the involvement of SG1; we aren’t drawn in remotely as much.  Perhaps we might watch the previous instalment first, in case it makes a difference.  The trailer for this did look reasonably good, though we did have it muted.

The Wizard of Gore (1970)

Standard

Well what a trippy start. Montag introduces what is to come as a spectacular show complete with era-typical, special effects. Confident phrases of descriptive certainty such as “what comes up must come down” are proclaimed, yet we get a feeling that we can also quote Montag himself already at this as point as soon as he mutters “not always”. At least we saw some interesting flower manipulation and persistent cape fluttering in the process.

It didn’t take long for some gore to come on-screen, curtesy of a chainsaw wielding Montag. What was presented as an on-stage illusion, soon delivers a dark twist when our illusion-chainsawed-woman dies in a cut scene, after the show at a different public venue!

That’s interesting. The movie lost us for a moment until a grave observed by Montag the Magnificent had its coffin raise through the dirt, and out from the ground. Soon to reveal illusion-chainsaw-woman. Illusion-chainsaw-woman soon is carried out of the graveyard by Montag.

And that was some funky music.

We don’t want to give away the ending. Or what happens beyond the first thirty minutes. But we will share some final comments, and let you decide if these words were simply written at the thirty minute mark – a frequently terminal moment for many movies. Perhaps they were composed after we have actually seeing the whole movie. Did he just say “brain” dear?  That’s another question we might leave to you.

Brains and wigs! This is where we are. With the wizard of brown paste. Oh no, after the brain hemorrhagic, the new magic show girl simply looks like another office worker going to work on a tram. What does hemorrhagic mean? Is it an emotion that an owl would feel? Chicken Unlimited.
