Here was a world now ruled by rebels and refugees, plunderers and poachers, mercenaries and murderers, a land suddenly aflame with brutality, racism and unspeakable slaughter. At the risk of their own lives, the filmmakers' cameras captured it all.

Zombie Holocaust [Blu-ray] [1982] [US Import]

Obviously made as a direct response to the phenomenaly successful Zombie Flesh Eaters directed by the infamous Lucio Fulci, Zombie Holocaust shares many things with Fulci's movie including cast members Ian McCulloch and Dakar plus not to mention plagiarized footage to make the viewer believe that this was indeed shot in a far flung tropical paradise when it fact because of budget was phototgraphed in the films native country of Italy. Ok so these are only establishing shots of the jeep driving around the island and binoculars looking over the ocean at distant islands but if you watch these movies back to back you may get a strange sence of deja vu. Like its far more famous predecessor the opening of the movie was shot on location in New York. There was obviously no getting around that one. Compared to Zombie Flesh Eaters(or just plain Zombi depending on your geographical location) this comes across as rush job, shot without any skill or style with far weaker special effects and a rather plodding meandering narrative. The music score is not as memorable with Nico Fidenco's electronic warbling sounding like a verbatim rehash of his previous work on Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals and the film is prone to the Jess Franco style of jungle set movie making(see The Devil Hunter and The Cannibals) with characters just standing around talking despite the fact they have just found one of their guides torn apart by the cannibals.

Guru the Mad Monk [DVD] [1970] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Father Guru (an effeminate Neil Flanagan) is a mad, mad monk. Suffering from some kind of strange illness which resembles a cross between demonic possession and multiple-personality disorder, Guru runs a small prison church on the quiet Island of Mortavia along with his quasimodo-ish servant Igor and his old bag of a lover/witch/vampire Olga. Guru is pissed off at his skimpy paycheck from the church and supplements it by selling the bodies of some of the prisoners to medical schools. When the head of prison's true love (Judith Israel) gets locked up and sentenced to death, Guru helps her escape in return for the guy assisting the father in his fiendish plans. Guru continues to knock-off any wayward visitor to his church, Olga continues to flash her fake teeth and hypnotize people with her shiny necklace and lots of other stupid things happen as people wander about Tensions flare and jump-cuts run rampant, leading up to a surreal, choppy finale.
This being a Milligan production, it obviously comes with the requisite baggage of high school-level production values combined with third-grade acting talent mixed together in a potent solution and topped with his usual absurd period look and feel.
