Podcast On Fire 210: Bio Zombie & Dream Home

pof210

With special co-host Camie Chance, Kenny B takes you back to Ip Man director Wilson Yip’s humble beginnings, where he made… a zombie-movie?! Hong Kong’s rare dip into the genres comes in the form of Bio Zombie.  Also in the second half, despite Stoo and crew having covered the movie before, we discuss Pang Ho-cheung’s holy crap is it gory/social commentary/black comedy Dream Home.

This Week In Sleaze 38: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Love To Kill & The Underground Banker

twis38

Let’s talk some fucking living next door to Dr. Lamb! One actor that took roles left and right, evolved his craft and did not in some cases (by his own admission) was Anthony Wong and he was as much of a mainstay in mainstream, lower rated Hong Kong cinema as in Category III movies. In this episode we take a look at him as an abusive husband in the Kirk Wong produced Love To Kill from 1993 and as a husband having troubles with local loan sharks and living next door to Dr.Lamb in the Wong Jing production The Underground Banker.

This Week In Sleaze 34: Daughter Of Darkness I & II

twis34

Let’s talk some fucking domestic abuse, syphilis and coat hanger abortion. Director Ivan Lai unleashed the unforgiving, foul, vile, inappropriately comedic (but genius) dual tale where one is about abuse and another about impotency, coat hangers and another evil family. Cinema audiences actually came out in droves to the tale of Lily Chung and her family bullying, degrading and raping the crap out of her…played by on screen animal William Ho. Anthony Wong is the goofy cop investigating all this and an almost unrelated reprise happened in 1994 with a new cast including Red To Kill‘s Ben Ng.

This Week In Sleaze 33: Tightie Whitie Theatre – The Twist & Crazy Love For You

twis33

Let’s talk some fucking justice…Danny Lee style. It’s one of the fascinations of Danny Lee’s cop movies, Cat III or not, when he clearly muses on how justice is achieved, how information is squeezed out of suspects and there’s probably half a dozen movies where he or his OCTB gang are pretty much torturing their victims. Be it in Organized Crime & Triad Bureau, The Untold Story and here in his own directed The Twist where Simon Yam gets the hose.  Also, Simon Yam is a nutter, psycho AND stalker in Crazy Love For You where he may or may not get his dicky shot off.

Samurai Princess (2009)

samuraiprincessSamurai Princess is a lowish budget gore film directed by Kengo Kaji (co-writer of Tokyo Gore Police) and special effects produced by director and FX wizard Yoshihiro Mishimura (Tokyo Gore Police; Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl).

The story is set in an alternate world where andriods roam the countryside looking for victims they can rape (don’t worry it’s all insinuated) and turn into some kind of gore art. Adult film star (yes that’s correct) Ainu Kashi plays a young woman who was the victim of previously mentioned andriods and gets turned into one herself so she may seek vengence for herself and her friends.

Overall I would say this is a fun film. The low budget can be a bit off putting to be at first and 95% of it seems to have been shot in a generic woodland area which could’ve been somewhere in Japan or the southdowns. That makes it look even cheaper.

But as I said earlier don’t be put off. The film gathers pace and the fun begins in due time. You get some regular gore, garden shears for a foot, chainsaw leg, detachable breasts that become a powerful explosive, colourful and extravagant costumes, a mad scientist, guitar so powerful it can kill you, girls in different coloured tights (if that rocks your boat) and a sex scene for those of you who must see breasts in a film.

To put it bluntly Samurai Princess is a fun film where you can switch off and watch some gore action. If you enjoyed Tokyo Gore Police you will most likely enjoy this too. But take my advice and don’t get your expectations too high.
