It’s a short one this week. I am leaving today to go out of town for the weekend and have been working over time this week to be able to leave early. So with that said my time was very limited watching movies this week, sadly. If you are playing along to the drinking game that The Horror Underground suggested to do with our show, I apologize in advanced for the alcohol poisoning. This week Chuck and I tackle Artsploitation Films blu-ray release of Romain Basset’s psycho-sexual nightmare ridden Horsehead! We also take quick look at Grindhouse Releasing’s of Umberto Lenzi’s Cannibal Ferox!
RECKLESS, based on the 2009 thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed, is a stylish, sexually charged kidnapping drama from the Netherlands that is not for the faint of heart. Two masked men kidnap a young woman and after stripping and bounding her to a bed, demand a ransom from her father. A seemingly well-trained criminal plan. But nothing is as simple as it seems as loyalties are tested, secrets revealed and treachery rears its calculating head. Fun for the whole family – if your family can deal with nudity, violence and deceit!

- Synopsis: Everyone’s heard of inferior American remakes of European films, but this is a real twist: a superior European (Dutch) remake of an English-language (British) film that even improves on the original! RECKLESS [Bloedlink] is a riveting retelling of a story first explored in the 2009 thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed, but director Joram Lürsen’s new version is even more stylish, sexually charged, and tightly wound than its source of inspiration. Laura Temming wakes up to find herself bound to a bed in a sound-insulated vacant apartment. Two masked men strip the clothes from her body, place her in a track suit, and take photos that will be used to obtain ransom money from Laura’s wealthy father. As the clock ticks, Laura discovers that she may have a relationship with one of the kidnappers that she never expected…and that the two men hold a secret that one could not have expected. With more twists than one could imagine, RECKLESS is ingeniously seductive.
This week on Exorcast, Chuck and I are reunited with The Newsfinder General and he actually does his job for once. We tackle The House With 100 Eyes from Artsploitation Films, Vinegar Syndromes blu-ray release of Madman, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Miss Osbourne from Arrow Video and Severin’s fantastic looking blu-ray release of Franco’s Vampyros Lesbos kinda puts me to sleep. Of all people how can Jess Franco make something like this boring? I also threaten to replace Chuck.
This week on Exorcast we take a look at Artsploitation Film’s first blu-ray release of Der Samurai, Wild Eye Releasing’s new indie slasher that isn’t Morbid, Blood Slaughter Massacre. We also dive into a two Arrow Video (US) releases of Massacre Gun and the amazing release of Brian Yuzna’s Society and talk about why it may just be the best release of this year. We hear from our good friend Uwe Bowl or however you spell that hack’s name and Chuck gives us the run down on some newly announced Scream Factory news.
