Upcoming FWOAN screening in Glasgow...

"For Want Of A Nail" will be screening at the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival in Glasgow on Bank Holiday Monday the 6th of May. The venue will be the Centre for Contemporary Arts.

It will be shown as part of the "Scottish Connections" portion of the schedule, which will take place between 5:30pm and 7:30pm. You can find out more information by visiting their website HERE.

What's our Scottish connection, you may be asking. Well, not only is our lead actor Clark a gent of Scottish descent, so is our on-set adviser Kasha, and I too am a fellow Scot by birth and blood.

Microwave Massacre (Wayne Berwick, 1983) Blu-Ray Review

Find more exploitation reviews here.


“I got an idea all right, but I think it's against the law.” Everything you need to know about the tone of Wayne Berwick's Microwave Massacre can be gleaned from the opening sequence. Strutting in with an foot-tappingly catchy funkadelic opening theme, Marla Simon (credited as 'Knothole Girl') – in figure-hugging high 'n' tight jeans – jiggles her way down a suburban street brandishing all kinds of swagger. She happens upon a construction site and a hole in a wall, in which her ample assets become lodged after a creep gooses her. Two workers spy the scene unveiling itself from the other side and charge in goggle-eyed wonder – but they miss out at the last second. Yep, it's the 1970s and this goofy brand of working men's club humour is the order of the day. It's the sort of thing you might have seen in the work of Russ Meyer or those “Confessions...” movies with all their waggling eyebrows and double entendres, as a schlub in search of a simple working man's meal discovers culinary cannibalism as the solution...

Evil Toons (Fred Olen Ray, 1992) Review...

Find more exploitation reviews here.


“Why do these things always have to start with young, beautiful Co-Eds going into the basement?” From Fred Olen Ray, the director of Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, comes Evil Toons: the saucier, spookier, and definitely cheaper alternative to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? But don't let the title deceive you with it's plural-based promises, because you only get one titular torrid toon! However, with a game cast – featuring support from a ham-tastic David Carradine (Kill Bill) and the late, ever-reliable Dick Miller (Gremlins, The 'Burbs, damn near everything else) – plus oodles of meta humour and a multitude of babes laid bare, this gleeful exploitationer from the VHS rental heyday has plenty to offer...
