I don’t recognize the movie but it looks European. Flangepart And they don’t look all that pointy. What, is he gonna gnaw on her awhile to get into a vein? Ericb Oh Dear, please, not another Twilight night. Rock Baker Goin’ for the REAL obscure stuff now, are we? German or Italian? I’m pretty sure its not Uncle Was A Vampire, although that was my first impulse. zombiewhacker Nope. Don’t know this one. What’s this week’s theme, anyway? I thought it was spider-related. Rock Baker The connecting theme seems to be obscure genre fare from Germany. Ken Begg Well, from the continent, anyway. Rock Baker So how long do we guess before you unveil the answer? Rock Baker Ah! Thanks, Ken. This one has been on my wish list for a good while now. I am a little nervous as the still looks like a comical shot and I was hoping for the straight, if cheesecakey, horror pic advertised by the poster. Ken Begg No, as I recall it’s pretty serious…goofy, but serious. Flangepart No, as I recall it’s pretty serious…goofy, but serious. Ken Begg said this on June 8th, 2011 at 8:20 pm Okay, I can buy that. German cinema must be stuffed to the Leaderhosen with jabootu worthy material. I say, bring it on, and bring out the beer and pretzels. Ken Begg Actually, this one’s Italian. There’s a lot of tonal crossover, though. Rock Baker For what its worth, I have some Video Cheese reviews of German movies on their way. Sandy Petersen There does seem to be some overlap between German and Italian movies. Dario Argento, for instance, set (and for all I know, filmed) several of his movies in Gemrany, notably Suspiria and Phenomena. Of course, usually Argento manages to float above the Jabootu level.
