TRIBUTE TO ITALIAN EXPLOITATION MAESTRO JOE D'AMATO | Offscreen
An idyllic Greek island holiday turns into a Tripadvisor nightmare when young tourists are stalked by a entrail-gobbling, foetus-eating cannibal. D'Amato and Eastman's most infamous collaboration covers the handsome actor's face with crusty makeup for a gore classic that earned a place on the UK's "Video Nasty" list!
An American property developer aims to build a luxury resort on a tropical island, but the place is cursed... with flesh-eating zombies! D'Amato and Eastman (who wrote the screenplay, as well as playing a lusty skipper) combine two of their favourite genres in this horror/porn hybrid filmed in the Dominican Republic.
Here's valuable documentary insight into the career of the filmmaker who (under multiple pseudonyms) rode the waves of Italian exploitation trends such as horror, post-apocalypse action, and porn both soft and hardcore. Contributing friends and colleagues include Lamberto Bava, Michele Soavi and, of course, George Eastman.
Screened for the first time in the unreleased extended cut!
Mad Max 2 meets The Running Man in this gloriously entertaining post-apocalyptic Z-movie shot on the outskirts of Rome. The tyrannical regime wants all telepathic mutants dead, so a game show champion agrees to escort a bunch of them to a safe haven, in return for gold; George Eastman plays his nemesis and occasional ally.
A rich couple takes in a lovely amnesiac (Swedish starlet Ewa Aulin, of Candy fame) whose carriage crashes right in front of their mansion. Big mistake: she's not as angelic as she looks! D'Amato goes full-on Eurogothic, with a pinch of Poe, a splash of Carmilla, a dash of decaying corpse and a soupçon of splatter.
