Those "Shock Wave" posters make it look like a zombie kaiju flick.
FULL CIRCLE (aka THE HAUNTING OF JULIA) is a totally underrated ghost story. If only for the stunning final shot alone.I decent DVD release of this would be great.
Max, I totally agree. I've no idea why this hasn't gotten any love on DVD...but since Let's Scare Jessica to Death finally got released, i guess there's hope for this.
Is that ant in the last Empire of the Ants poster performing oral sex on that guy?
Ok, let's roll.Shock WavesGerman:THE absolute HIGH POINT OF HORRORSHOCK WAVESWHICH CAME FROM THE DEEPItalian title: The Eye of the Triangle (can't read the text at top…sorry)The SentinelJapanese: センチネル Senchineru (transliteration)Swedish: There must always be a guardian at the gates of HellShe was youngShe was beautifulShe was chosen!PAWN OF EVILRabidFrench:Science fiction!Fantasy!Horror!RABIES! [aslo <RAGE]Italian subtitle: BloodlustI’ll pass on the Thai, given the turnaround time. Send me a note if you want it, Ms. P.Spanish: I can’t quite read it, but I’m pretty sure the box over the b/w girl’s crotch says “Pray that you don’t get rabies.”Empire of the AntsGerman:At the Mercy of the Giant Ants(Wow, thomwade is right, there’s a definite ant-Re-Animator vibe in that still. Ouch.)The ChildIn Spanish, it gives away that said child is indeed a girl.Cauchemares or Cathy’s CurseWell, the original French title means Nightmares. Why they changed it to a second French title is beyond me. Why the director, Eddy Matalon, is credited as Eddy Greenwood on the second French poster is a little confusing as well, obviously.Anyway, it says:I sent my mother to the madhouse…I scared my dog to death…I put my nanny out the window…Now there are threeDaddy…dolly…and me… me… MESUCH A NICE LITTLE GIRL!…
Wow, there are some real gems here!The Sentinel was on steady cable rotation about a year ago, and although I'd seen back in the day, I'd forgotten how creepy and disturbing it is underneath the veneer of a cheesy Lifetime movie (if they'd been making Lifetime movies back in the 70s).Its use of genuinely deformed people in the climax to depict demons from Hell is the sort of remarkably non-PC touch they could never get away with anymore.And Kingdom of the Spiders remains a classic monster movie. Prior to his Boston Legal resurgence, Shatner had never been that appealing outside of Star Trek. My only beef is that the "living crawling" poster is a fraud. It totally implies giant spiders, and I was disappointed in that aspect the first time I saw the film.Still, it's a testament to how awesome the film is that it quickly became a favorite in spite of not having any giant spiders.
You'd certainly have to file the film under a different category if that was the case, thomwade.
That Rabid B&W poster is undeniably gorgeous.
I love that La Nina poster.
Only Joseph Brenner would promote an Italian crime film from 1974 as a horror movie using a picture from the 1920 version of Der Golem!Word verification: pigmul
