Welcome to the fourth ever Russian Roulette Retrospective and over two episodes we will face off against guest hosts with a little stay over at the Bates Motel where Norman & Mother hope you enjoy your visit in room 1.  This episode features reviews of Psycho (1960), Psycho 2 (1983).

88 FILMS ITALIAN COLLECTION SERIES - DISC 9 - ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS 2

The Podcast Under the Stairs presents our next instalment of The 88 Films Italian Collection Series.

italian9.jpg

Welcome to the next instalment of our sub-set of show exclusively looking at the Italian Collection releases of 88 Films.

88 Films have, for the last 2 years or so, have been on a tear releasing a torrent of Italian genre classics in high definition. I have been purchasing them and it should be no surprise to anyone, I have left them pretty much unwatched (what can I say...I'm a compulsive collector).

In order to watch the movies I buy, and of course create some quality content for you all Under the Stairs, I will be running through each of the movies on this bonus series between 1-2 movies a month depending on the TPUTS schedule.

So strap yourself in for a rollercoaster ride of alleged plagiarism, zombies, gore, rape, genital mutilation, sexism, revenge, gialli, cops and robbers, cannibalism, sci fi & more bush and titties than an annual subscription to Penthouse magazine.

Disc 9 in the collection is another first-time watch for me!! What do you get when the writer of the Troll 2 (Claudio Fragasso), the director of Zombie Creeping Flesh (Bruno Mattei) & the Godfather of Gore (Lucio Fulci) collaborate on a zombie/infection movie with shades of Return of the Living Dead and The Crazies...Zombie Flesh Eaters 2 (aka Zombi 3) that is. So strap yourselves in for a wild ride in one of the most over the top action zombie exploitation movies that this reviewer has ever seen with a review of Disc 9 - Zombie Flesh Eaters 2.

The grading follows the Netflix rating style of 1 = Hated It, 2 = Didn’t Like It, 3 = Liked It, 4 = Really Liked It & 5 = Loved It

Zombie Flesh Easters 2:

Duncan: 4.5

Up next on the Italian Collection Series is Disc 10 - SS Experiment Camp (1976).

88 FILMS ITALIAN COLLECTION SERIES - DISC 8 - HITCH-HIKE

The Podcast Under the Stairs presents our next instalment of The 88 Films Italian Collection Series.

italian8.jpg

Welcome to the next instalment of our sub-set of show exclusively looking at the Italian Collection releases of 88 Films.

88 Films have, for the last 2 years or so, have been on a tear releasing a torrent of Italian genre classics in high definition. I have been purchasing them and it should be no surprise to anyone, I have left them pretty much unwatched (what can I say...I'm a compulsive collector).

So strap yourself in for a rollercoaster ride of alleged plagiarism, zombies, gore, rape, genital mutilation, sexism, revenge, gialli, cops and robbers, cannibalism, sci fi & more bush and titties than an annual subscription to Penthouse magazine.

Disc 8 in the collection is another first-time watch for me and the first in the collection that is (albeit only slightly) outwith the horror genre into the 'crime-thriller with a splattering of rape' sub-genre (yes I have made this genre up...but it's my show so that's allowed). We join a 'not at all type-casted' David Hess as a psychotic hitch-hiker rapist looking for some unhappy couple to terrorise in Pasquale Festa Campanile 1977 crime flick Hitch-Hike. 

The grading follows the Netflix rating style of 1 = Hated It, 2 = Didn’t Like It, 3 = Liked It, 4 = Really Liked It & 5 = Loved It

Hitch-Hike:

Duncan: 3.5

Up next on the Italian Collection Series is Disc 9 - Zombie Flesh Eaters 2 (1988).
