No idea on this movie. Is her head severed? Kind of looks that way. Ken Begg Yes, the head is severed, and then the camera zooms in, and it opens its eyes and begins to cackle. And that’s the *beginning* of the movie. BeckoningChasm Way OT, but I just saw that Dino DeLaurentiis died. GalaxyJane Is this “Fearless Vampire Killers”? I haven’t seen that it a long time. I know it’s something I’ve seen, but I can’t place it for certain. Man oh man, Dino may not have made a lot of GOOD movies, but he sure provided a lot of entertainment over the decades. I actually had a metal lunchbox with his version of Kong on it in Kindergarten (which which should immediately tell you my age to within a year). Ken Begg Well, Jane, I’ve met you, and you’re clearly about 19. John Campbell Ken you are like a good scotch…always smoooooth Ken Begg Hmmm….I *am* full-bodied, that’s for sure. David Fullam Yes, Spanish Leopard women lesbians! Ken Begg Wow, David, that’s pretty reductivist, don’t you think? They are people, dammit! Besides, you forgot to mention their fur bikinis. Sandy Petersen Okay this is like the first one I have had absolutely no idea. It looks European but that’s as far as I can go. Ericb When I was in kindergarded I had a Thunderbirds lunchbox. I later graduated to a UFO lunchbox. I can’t imagine what those things would be worth these days. Not-So-Great Cthulhu Ah, the Devil Leopard Women, who are leopards during the day and… vampires at night. Logic, why hast thou forsaken us? I think my favorite thing about this movie is the hero/world’s least competent guide. Every night he’s on watch, he winds up having sex with the “half-breed” chick, and someone in the expedition dies. I just hope they pay him up front. GalaxyJane That’s it! It must have been my Dad’s lunchbox,left over from when HE was a kindergardener. Yeah, that’s my story and I am sticking to it! Something Spanish and dreadful that would have shown on my local UHFs “Shocking Theater” was my second guess, so sounds about right. Wait a second,if Ken is correct, I’m too young to remember UHF. Um, must be a race memory, passed down by my ancient ancestors, um, yeah. GalaxyJane Then again, at least I’m not the one making Phillis Diller jokes… Rock Baker Not a single clue. You have bested me, Ken. I now hand over my sword. Here’s one I’ve just GOT to see! Ken Begg Sandy — I can report from personal experience that this guy’s films are not your strong point. Ken Begg No, but you’re the one *getting* Phillis Diller jokes… Rock Baker I’m guessing somewhere between 1966 and 1972. European. Italian? Spanish? Beyond that I can’t say. All this talk of vampire womanimals doesn’t limit the possibilities, with Italy, Germany, Spain, and France all likely suspects. Did it ever get an english language release? BeckoningChasm I know, I know, it’s from that film starring Cary Grant, directed by Orson Welles, with a script by Nigel Kneale. Rock Baker Oh yeah! I didn’t notice that was Jean Harlow for a second. Someone, please, can you tell me the title and year? I’d ask for lead actors/director but I’m terrible with names (just ask Sandy). I might remember the name of the studio… Ken Begg It’s Night of the Sorcerers, by the Blind Dead guy. (Yep, it’s Spanish.) He also directed The Sea Serpent, a personal favorite of mine. There was a DVD out for this at one point, but I think it’s out of print. Rock Baker Thanks, Ken! Seems like I have heard that title before, but I know nothing else about it. If it begins with a cackling severed head with vampire fangs, it sounds like a must see for the oddball movie fanatic. (sigh) Not-So-Great Cthulhu Rock: I think Ken posted a review of it here on the blog a couple of years ago, which gives a pretty good summary of it. The movie is available through Netflix and I highly recommend it.
