John Waters – Cry-Baby [Theatrical Cut] (1990)

Allison is a “square” good girl who has decided she wants to be bad and falls hard for Cry-Baby Walker, a Greaser (or “Drape” in John Waters parlance). Spoofing Elvis movies and Juvenile Delinquency scare films of the ’50s, this movie follows the adventures of Cry-Baby who, though he is sent to juvie, is determined to cross class (and taste) boundaries to get Allison back.

Rosa von Praunheim – Dein Herz in meinem Hirn AKA Your Heart in My Brain (2005)

For whatever reason, this low-budget shot-on-DV film seems to have never been released in any format and is very rare. This is a web rip and the best (and only) print of the film currently available. Inspired by the gay German cannibalism case involving Armin Meiwes (whose story inspired no less than three other films, including Martin Weisz’s Grimm Love (2006) and Marian Dora’s Cannibal (2006) and Ulli Lommel’s Diary of a Cannibal), von Praunheim’s film caused much controversy, mainly because it was partially funded by German tax money.

Andy Milligan – Monstrosity (1987)

Bloodthirsty Butchers, The Ghastly Ones etc and definitely not a good starting point for the Milligan novice. However, the movie is not without its dubious and very cheesy merits. Milligan regular Hal Borske is loveably kooky as the “monstrosity” (an understatement!); the film frantically races from one absurd scenario to the next; and there’s cheap-jack gore a-plenty. The wonderfully demented gut-ripping sequence is a highlight; the matter-of-fact manner in which the villain slices his victim’s abdomen and yanks yard-upon-yard of intestines from her makes for a truly head-spinning spectacle. Special mention must also go to the infuriating siren-like title theme that sounds at every given opportunity. Read More »

Rosa von Praunheim – Stadt der verlorenen Seelen (1983)

With stars like Angie Stardust (also music credits), Judith Flex, and Joaquin La Habana, director Rosa von Praunheim has fashioned a film about the teeming flip side of life in Berlin centered on eccentric characters of almost every imaginable sexual orientation, or disorientation – most are American performers drawn to the city of “lost souls” as a place where they can give full rein to their creative natures.
