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.

Taiwan Noir 11: Virago & The Anger

tn11

Wishing to cover the following movies anyway but now that we’re stumbling upon same actors and filmmakers again and again, the work needed to get these shows done gets reduced ever so slightly because tonight’s focus on actress Elsa Yeung and director Richard Chen means the little there is to say of them biography wise has been done. So we won’t repeat the little we know and dig as we cover 1981′s Virago (IFD’s re-title of the 1981 actioner was the more commonly known title Deadly Silver Angels) starring Elsa training women in bikinis to stab the f*ck out of men and The Anger, the Lu Hsiao-fen thriller that was the basis for the IFD cut and paste movie Inferno Thunderbolt by Godfrey Ho.

Note that the first half was recorded but lost and re-recorded under different conditions. Hence the different halves sounding somewhat different in quality. /Ken

Taiwan Noir 6: The Imprisoned & The Devil

Episode title does sound like a kickass movie but they are in fact two separate Taiwanese experiences containing massive amounts of whipping, forcefeeding, fake crocs, magic trees, puss filled boils, spells and actors hired because they said yes to putting all manner of disgusting things in their mouths. In the Last Taiwanese Movies Watched segment, John Charles tries to figure out Jackie And Bruce To The Rescue and Kenny B is afraid of Jack Kao in Midnight Revenge.
