Fit To Kill (Andy Sidaris, 1993) Review

Find more exploitation reviews here.


“It's the sexiest scheme on the screen since James Bond discovered Pussy Galore!” After the somewhat paint-by-numbers Hard Hunted, which lacked some of the vim and vigour of previous outings in the wild and wacky world of Andy Sidaris, Fit To Kill splashes some refreshing Hawaiian water on the franchise's face. Dosed-up on American bravado and topless coffee breaks, it's all about a few simple things: More action! More sex! More cheese ball dialogue! And more, many more, remote control toys!...

The Pyjama Girl Case (Flavio Mogherini, 1978) Blu-Ray Review

Find more giallo reviews here.


“Just because it's written down it's true, huh?” By 1978 the heyday of the Italian murder mystery – or 'giallo' – had been and gone, but that didn't mean there was nothing of interest still to rinse out of the well-strained genre. Writer/Director Flavio Mogherini's murder mystery casts aside much of the classic tropes and visual styling of the typical giallo film (black gloved killers, gleaming knives, an escalating series of grisly deaths, European glamour) in favour of – egads! - just one murder in, of all places, Australia's Sydney with its sun, sea, and sand. Do not go into this movie expecting killer thrills by any means and, whatever you do, don't read the spoilerific blurb on the back of the box!...

Exploitation Nation Issue #8 On Sale Now

Recently I wrote an article for Issue #8 of the movie magazine Exploitation Nation. The theme of the issue is 'Defend a Film', where each contributor writes about a movie they enjoy but which is commonly derided by the wider viewing public. I opted to write about George A. Romero's final film, 2009's Survival of the Dead (which you can find on page 94 of the issue).

Exploitation Nation #8: Witnesses for the Defense! Every movie is someone's favorite and in this issue, we asked our writers to defend a movie only they seem to like. From "Grease 2" to "Ernest Goes to Jail" to "Godzilla '98" to the actor Kevin Costner, we profess our love for the things that we feel deserve more love. PLUS an exclusive interview with director Terry Gilliam and his long-awaited "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote"!
You can get a copy of Exploitation Nation #8 via Amazon in either eBook or paperback format, just follow the links below or search your region's Amazon website.
