This Week In Sleaze 28: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Laboratory Of The Devil & A Narrow Escape

twis28

Let’s talk some shameless war crime exploitation, Men Behind The Sun-sploitation if you will. After Mou Tun-fei did his research and a in your face but valid examination of the human experimentation by the Japanese during World War II, exploitation cash ins appeared that resulted in 2 semi related sequels: Laboratory Of The Devil and A Narrow Escape by otherwise ninjasploitation/cut and paste sploitation director Godfrey Ho. Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal sit down for examination of watered down cash grabs.

This Week In Sleaze 27: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Mad Stylist & Fatal Love

twis27

Let’s talk some fucking Michael Wong. Where do you go after a rough episode historical contents-wise (we talked Men Behind The Sun last episode) to get comfortable and happy again. Some look at puppies doing cute things on the internet. We watch and talk Michael Wong movies and there are a fair few Category III movies the Wongster graced with his presence. So let’s keep it simple this episode and talk the following: Mad Stylist from 1997 and Fatal Love from 1993. Karaoke good time at one hand, pitch black in the other. Also, Al Pacino stops by.

Note that the first 18 minutes were recorded by Joshua as backup as my local file got corrupted. Hence a difference in audio, for the better,  after the break. /Ken

This Week In Sleaze 26: Men Behind The Sun

twis26

Let’s talk some fucking… war crime. True crime has been the theme before as we’ve looked at several 90s productions from Hong Kong cinema exploiting and depicting famous serial killers and crimes in a very commercial era for the Category III movie. The late 80s had no such trend but former Shaw Brothers director Mou Tun-fei unleashed one of the most notorious nasties out of Hong Kong cinema in 1988: Men Behind The Sun. As Wikipedia quite correctly says: “A graphic depiction of the war atrocities committed by the Japanese at Unit 731, the secret biological weapons experimentation unit of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II”. Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal dives deep into the pages of history, Mou’s career and give his most known movie a thorough examination.

Running times:
00m 00s – Intro/Unit 731 history
49m 32s – Mou Tun-fei bio/discussion
65m 39s – Men Behind The Sun review

This Week In Sleaze 25: Tightie Whitie Theatre – False Lady & Hunting Evil Spirit

twis25

It’s Christmas at the Tightie Whitie Theatre and once again it’s a very special Charlie Cho Christmas! It’s therefore not Category III Christmas movies per say but depraved sights of Charlie Cho for our picks because that does ring true of Christmas…because there’s a lot of cumming (deck the halls and all that) and it’ll make you choke on your egg nog. So strap in for something rather pleasant actually in the form of a US comedy remake called False Lady and something Charlie Cho-esque threadbare and depraved story wise in the form of Hunting Evil Spirit. Also featuring a reading by The Great Lord Joshua Regal of the Christmas classic ‘How Charlie Cho Stole Christmas’, Sean Connery stops by and the This Week In Sleaze team thank you for listening this year and have a very Merry Christmas!

This Week In Sleaze 24: Tightie White Theatre – The Legend Of An Erotic Movie Star & Temptation Summary II

 

twis24Let’s talk about how fucking is made! Yes, this Tightie Whitie Theater contains looks at two movies about making Category III movies. The commercial adults only genre, tag, symbol breaking the 4th wall a bit and making satire? Or what are they aiming for here? Is it just regular sleaze with a cute gimmick that’s merely an excuse for T & A? Latter is a yes at least for The Legend Of An Erotic Movie Star from 1993 and Temptation Summary II from 1991.

This Week In Sleaze 22: Tightie White Theatre – Human Pork Chop & There Is A Secret In My Soup

twis22Another pair of movies made about the same crime that came out the same year, on the same day. Exploitation productions running towards the finishing line in an era that wasn’t exactly filled with these types of depictions like you had in 1992-1993. But in 2001, a bit of a race occurred when it was rumoured this story was going into production for depiction and it resulted in Human Pork Chop and There Is A Secret In My Soup. Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal give you the grisly details in their reviews.
