Blu-ray Review: Jess Franco’s Devil Hunter (1980)

Jess Franco: A name that inspires awe in some, revulsion in others, and eye rolling from those who see the sheer quantity of his output and are immediately dismissive. Making close to 200 films will tend to put one in that kind of light, as quality control would seem nigh impossible. And it was, for the most part; as someone fairly new to the sordid and sweaty oeuvre of Franco, I am choosing to highlight what I think are interesting, or at least enjoyable films from his catalogue. So it was with slight trepidation that I threw on 88 Films’ excellent restored Blu-ray of Devil Hunter (1980). Where would it land on the Franco Scale? As it turns out, a fun Indiana Jones meets Cannibal Island Monster jaunt is where he lands, and I’m more than happy to follow.

A little perspective perhaps; of the Francos I’ve seen, this comes across as the least personal,

‘Devil Hunter’ Blu-ray Review (88 Films)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Al Cliver, Antônio do Cabo, Antonio Mayans, Bertrand Altmann, Gisela Hahn, Ursula Buchfellner, Werner Pochath | Written by Jess Franco, Julian Esteban | Directed by Jess Franco

Its hard to believe, but growing up I thought Jess Franco was a horror-filmmaking god; even though I’d never seen a single one of his genre films. Why? Well because I was an avid subscriber of Dark Side Magazine and the way they wrote about Franco and his films with such reverence (and some irony it would seem looking back at it now), you would have thought he was up there with the horror greats. Yet while, now, I know differently – Franco was very much a journeyman filmmaker, cranking out films at a pace unheard of today – he still has a huge fanbase out there. You only have to look at just how many of his film are available on DVD and Blu-ray,

Cannibal horror Devil Hunter coming to Blu-ray for the first time in the UK

88 Films has announced that it is bringing the cult 1980 cannibal horror / video nasty Devil Hunter to Blu-ray for the very first time in the UK this April.

Support Flickering Myth: Order via Amazon UK

Sun, sex, sand and… sadism! When a gorgeous model is kidnapped by an isolated tribe and imprisoned on a remote island, a grizzled Vietnam veteran travels to the uncharted tropics to save her. He soon discovers human flesh is on the menu for the ravenous kidnappers and the sacred Devil God they worship…

Featuring a leading turn from Italian horror legend Al Cliver, Devil Hunter is part Indiana Jones, part Cannibal Holocaust and all outrageous insanity as Jess Franco throws-in babes, bare-boobs, blood and native-battles in a glorious onslaught of cannibalistic carnage.

Zombie – The Blu Review

Review by Roger Carpenter

After George Romero’s remarkable international success with Dawn of the Dead (entitled Zombi in Italy), the Italians, always ready to hop on the celluloid bandwagon, rushed to churn out tons of unofficial sequels to the film as well as their own originals, just so long as “zombie,” “living dead,” or something similar was featured in the title. Thus, we have films such as Hell of the Living Dead, Burial Ground, and Zombi Holocaust, as well as the “sort-of” zombie film, Nightmare City, along with many others. But the first of the zombie films to hit theaters after Dawn of the Dead was Zombie.

Though the title certainly was a blatant ploy to ride the coattails of Dawn of the Dead, director Lucio Fulci always chafed at the notion the film itself was a rip-off of Romero’s smash hit. I won’t go into the arguments here because frankly,

Ten Classic Cinematic Horror Deaths

Where would a horror movie be without a classic death scene – or two? We’ve had some great ones over the years: Janet Leigh’s shower to end all showers in Psycho (1960); the ill fated nude swim in Jaws (1975); David Warner’s famous decapitation in The Omen (1976); John Hurt’s serious indigestion problem in Alien (1979); and the exploding head in Scanners (1980). And let’s not forget the gruesome ends that befell pre-stardom Kevin Bacon and Johnny Depp.

Hang on a minute! I’ve just mentioned all the classic ones! Well let’s face it, so much has been written and discussed about those famous demises, they’ve been pretty much done to death (sorry!). Therefore, the following ten are horror-related deaths that deserve some kind of classic status, a couple of which are notable for their surreal and ambiguous nature.But beware...since most of the best death scenes are

Lucio Fulci’s Zombie at the Hi-Pointe Midnights this Weekend!

Zombie , the audaciously disgusting spectacle from the late master of gruesome Italian horror Lucio Fulci, was made in 1979 and presented as a semi-sequel to George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead from the previous year, (Dawn was released in parts of Europe as Zombie – Fulci’s film was known there as Zombie 2) though the films aren’t at all connected. Tisa Farrow and a group of vacationing tourists travel to an island where they find a doctor (Richard Johnson) who is attempting to cure a condition that reanimates the dead. Things quickly get out of control as undead Spanish conquistadors crawl from their graves hungry for human flesh. All this undead mayhem is highlighted by nauseatingly graphic set-pieces by make-up maestro Gianetto de Rossi. Zombie is an incredibly well-made shocker that was enormously popular worldwide and in many ways has aged better than the Romero film (it’s certainly scarier

Lucio Fulci's Zombie coming to theaters and Blu-ray/DVD

I remember watching Fulci's Zombie when it arrived on instant Netflix for the first time in 2009. As a fan of George Romero's zombie movies I was not sure how I would feel about a film that was called by many as the unofficial sequel to Dawn of the Dead. When I watched it I fell in love with the look and feel of this movie and can say that this is a must-watch zombie film. The film is set to get a re-release in theaters and an amazing Blu-ray release. Keep reading for more information.
