I guess this will springboard me into my annual rant about the lack of erotic thrillers in today's cinema.

 

So again I ask, WHAT HAPPENED TO EROTIC THRILLERS?

 

And don't give me none of that GIRL ON A TRAIN bunk. Where is this generation's TRACES OF RED?

You might want to check out Paul Verhoeven's Elle if you haven't already.  Watched it a couple weeks ago and it definitely fits nicely into his pervious work.  It features some very black humor and Isabelle Huppert definitely deserved the Oscar nom, if not the Oscar itself, for her performance.

DVD and free internet porn happened, basically.

 

Suddenly, many adult film stars became as attractive if not more so than many legit Hollywood stars.  And for those seeking titillation, they no longer had to wade through hours of terrible narratives and Madonna dripping candle wax on Willem Dafoe to get their collective rocks off.

 

It became less of a job requirement for legit actresses to get topless or drop skirts in order to get roles, and viewing standards went their separate ways - that is, "real" Hollywood movies and true porn - which makes things different for actresses coming to Hollywood now for the first time to break into show-biz.  Nowadays you have girls trying to get into adult film specifically, with no illusions of "proper" industry stardom.  

 

Then again, there was still a market for Jim Wynorski "Bare Wench Project" types of films, even if some of those actresses did sometimes cross over into the adult world, like Julie K. Smith, who's been in Andy Sidaris films as well as a few "for hire" shot on video adult clips made for specific buyers that have surfaced over time.

 

It sure is a different industry now than it was even ten, fifteen years ago.  The rules are all over the damn place now.

I'll have to check out ELLE. Heard it was real good but didn't know it delved into thriller territory.

 

Don't know if I buy into the adult film industry killing off the erotic thriller. To me the fun of stuff like SEA OF LOVE or BASIC INSTINCT was seeing A (sometimes B) list talent engage in salacious escapades while also serving up gruesome murders and maybe a slick car chase. You can't get that in blue movies.

post #147255 of 152152

How's the blu ray of EXTREME PREJUDICE?  The passing of Cash Bailey has me itching to watch it and I'm curious if the transfer is any good.

post #147256 of 152152

There isn't a "standard" American blu of EXTREME PREJUDICE yet. About a year ago I broke down and bought one that was Japanese but plays on Region A machines:

 

 

Film looked great. Still think it's a flick that deserves a loaded release but for now it's the best I could get.

That's true, but it might've helped kill off the need for them.  Could be that with a lot of adult-oriented material viewers, famous takes a backseat to hot and nasty.  It would be interesting to see if an old-school erotic thriller could be made with A-listers now and do well.  Who would be in a new one?  Chris Pine and Emma Stone?  Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johannson?

 

And what A-listers would star in one, now that the industry no longer needs them to?  As far as audiences go, superheroes fighting is the new hotties banging.  Of course, all it would take is one to be a big hit for the genre to come back full swing.

 

That might be the truest answer as to where the erotic thriller went.  They died because they stopped making money.

Ah crap.  I must have read it wrong regarding format.  Maybe I'll get it on DVD just to scratch that itch.

Erotic Thrillers and Dramas I Liked:

9 1/2 WEEKS  BASIC INSTINCT  BODY DOUBLE  BODY HEAT  DRESSED TO KILL  THE LAST SEDUCTION  SLIVER  BOUND  JADE  SEA OF LOVE

FEMME FATALE   LAST TANGO IN PARIS  EYES WIDE SHUT  ANGEL HEART  CRASH  BITTER MOON  THE SHELTERING SKY

 

BASIC INSTINCT 2: RISK ADDICTION might be the worst, as far a biggy-budget Hollywood machine offerings.  That was just laughable.

 

I haven't seen THE HANDMAIDEN but at least in South Korea and Japan, the erotic thriller is still going strong.

post #147260 of 152152

The EXTREME PREJUDICE DVD can be found cheap but boy is it awful looking. Fullscreen and VHS quality.

 

I'm pretty sure Lionsgate has the rights to the movie, they have the majority of Carolco films, and it blows that they haven't given the film a proper release worthy of the film.

Back when this site had those Sam Strange columns the best one was on EXTREME PREJUDICE:

This is probably the reason right here.

 

I recently watched The Specialist and that had Stallone and Stone nekkid and going at it. I didn't expect that. So a "scene" can pop up from time to time, but nothing like the films you're thinking about.

post #147263 of 152152
In the Cut is the most recent one that got a lot of press on how "steamy" it was.

Also Meg Ryan looked the best she had since Innerspace.
post #147264 of 152152

Watching White Lightning and it occurs to me that Burt Reynolds really needs to be in a Fast & Furious movie as stunt-casting. Charlize Theron is already repping the Max Mad movies and Mel Gibson has already done the ironic villain turn elsewhere, but I don't think they've done anything to homage the redneck car movies yet. Really a glaring void when you think about it.

I woke up this morning to find out we had lost Powers Boothe.

 

My first experience with him was indeed Rapid Fire.  He held his own opposite Brandon Lee and did so without knowing any Kung Fu.  After that he kept appearing in films I wanted to see, with Extreme Prejudice and Southern Comfort being great highlights.

 

Seeing him fuck up Kristen Bell during a channel surf resulted in me finally checking out Deadwood and a prejudice against TV vanished.  Watching the rest of the show, Boothe was never less than brilliant. 

 

Since then I have spent countless hours watching him mesmerise: Guyana Tragedy, Sudden Death, Tombstone (a hell of a film to stand out in), U-Turn to name a few.  

 

This is a profound loss, adding to so many we have had to deal with in recent months.  I look forward to seeing him in more and more films and revisiting his classic work.  Thank you and Rest in Peace.

Things I want to see in the free-for-all MCU INFINITY WAR films...


- Hulk meets Gamora. (Will he find her attractive?)
- Someone yells "Peter!" Parker and Quill argue over who was being called to.
- The Guardians of the Galaxy land in Central Park. Groot and Rocket get confused by our quiet trees and non-speaking raccoons.
- Howard the Duck: Private Investigator.
- Tony Stark and Peter Quill have a smarm-fight.
- More Shawarma.

Erotic thrillers are a lost art. I keep joking about wanting to make a fake trailer for one with my friends, where I appear as the main character's best friend who chugs a beer after warning him that the girl he loves can make a guy cum without even touching him. Think Dennis Miller in Disclosure.

 

Also, now I want Mel Gibson in a Fast and the Furious movie as a new villain. He gets my favorite line reading in Machete Kills, while driving a Landspeeder around.

post #147275 of 152152

I guess I stand alone in never liking Erotic Thrillers. To me they always wanted to be porn but couldn't cut it. I also dislike most Serial Killer movies, though I love Silence of the Lambs (to be fair Hannibal Lector is closer to being a Super Villain like Dr Doom rather than anything in real life).

 

I dig crime or political thrillers, where the stakes are high!

 

I'm stunned that Powers Booth has passed away. Extreme Prejudice and Southern Comfort where favorites, and his cameo in Milius's Red Dawn was awesome. He really elevated everything he appeared in. Shame he never broke into Stardom. R.I.P.

Haha. Surprisingly I'd never heard of Star Slammer: The Escape until now!

 

After finishing Funhouse Massacre, I think you'd find it to be at least ok to maybe decent. I liked it well enough for the 3 bucks I paid for the dvd. I'm sure you'd like it more than 31. I really liked that one a lot, but as it's Rob Zombie, I know his films are not for everyone.

There really was something going on with that killer. Especially since he liked to have the men strip and see how they would fuck.

Man, I was just thinking about this on saturday. He did an episode of the tv show Burn Notice where he was still fairly spry and didn't look as frail as he does now. I was thinking it was maybe 3 or 4 years ago, but it turns out the episode was from 2010! Still, he must have had a harsh few years in between, because he looked so different just a few years later when he did the interviews for the blu releases of White Lightning and Gator.

 

Here's how he looked on Burn Notice.

 

 

 

 

If he was still in this kind of shape, then he'd be a dead lock for another Fast And Furious film. Even if they tried to get him, it would probably just be a quick cameo of him sitting on a bench or something cute like him in the Bandit Trans-Am about to take a test drive during a chase sequence.

 

 

Got in my latest Netflix dvd rental earlier, and since it's something I really wanted to see, I decided to watch it today. It's a movie that was recommended to me by an online friend. A 2009 horror film called Laid To Rest. It's a slasher about a guy who has a shoulder mounted video camcorder who also has a chrome skull glued onto his face. Not bad so far, as I'm liking it well enough. It has some solid acting support from Kevin Gage (who is effectively the male lead), and Sean Whalen, along with a cameo from Jonathan Schaech. Lena Heady also has a small role that has a very brutal end. I say it's worth at least a rental for fans of slasher films.

Hey, Eko, I stopped at Second Hand Charles on the way home and was giddy to grab the remastered PHANTASM Blu. That's the only one I wanted, since try as I might I can't get into PHANTASM II. It's super cool they carried over the mono track.

 

(I also picked up HELLRIDE, MONUMENT AVE., FRUITVALE STATION, and 48 HRS. Blu)

 

Does anyone know if Walter Hill's GERONIMO had a widescreen release? My Netflix disc was FS. And that's all I'm seeing on Amazon. I'm regretting now deleting it from my DVR....grrrrrrr!

So again I ask, WHAT HAPPENED TO EROTIC THRILLERS?

 

While I've never seen any of these movies, in the past few years there have been "urban" movies (as the studio executives probably still refer to them as) such as No Good Deed, When the Bough Breaks and Unforgettable. Most of those are PG-13 so I know they aren't very erotic but that's the closest thing we've got to that and I hear that those films are at least "a hoot" if you watch it in a theatre with a big crowd. As I've mentioned before, I need to see more of those old erotic thrillers myself. At least most shouldn't be too difficult to track down.

I haven't seen Laid to Rest but I know there's a sequel, Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2.

That's great that they had the blu there! Hope you got a great deal on it. The second one is actually my favorite of the franchise just for them going "big" with the ideas and really getting a lot out of the small budget which was actually a lot compared to the first one. I started watching the new Phantasm blu from the boxset that I bought and didn't realize until about midway through that I was watching it with the 5.1 track. It was when Jody fired his pistol at the little mutants. New sound effects for the pistol, so promptly changed the audio track to the original mono.

 

To my best recollection, Geronimo just has a full screen release through Sony. I have it on a double feature with All The Pretty Horses, and that one is in widescreen.

 

Since you mention "Very Long Wait" movies that finally ship for you, Elvis, I'll mention that I got an email that one of mine finally shipped today. A little horror movie that I'd seen a small bit of years ago called Final Stab.

I've seen quite a few of Fred Olen Ray's films, but not as many as I should have by now. I'll have to rectify that in the future!

 

I really enjoyed Laid To Rest, and I'd forgotten to mention that Richard Lynch has a cameo as a mortician who shows up at the beginning, then again via video footage towards the end. I believe the sequel is next up in my dvd list, so I'm now looking forward to seeing it.

Today I did not do much that was interesting. I did watch a movie that made its debut on TCM tonight; I've been wanting to revisit Blood Simple and this was the perfect opportunity to do just that. I don't need to sing its praises around these parts so I'll just say I still think it's very good.

MIDNIGHT HEAT

https://uncletnuc.com/2017/05/10/midnight-heat/

 

"It was a sweltering night but I still donned my most sensuous trench-coat while I wandered the streets aimlessly for hours. My eyes were eventually drawn towards an old apartment building, where a set of window blinds on the first floor concealed a strange rosé glow. As I looked on curiously, an object tipped the blinds open, it was a hand – a woman’s hand. The window slid open and a lithe arm beckoned me inside to her warm, pink haven. I entered. Her inviting figure was draped exquisitely in a negligée – which is French for come do me – and it was all I could do to resist the impulse of my manhood swelling like a corpse floating in the harbor... Eager to deliver this nympho waves of passion-soaked injections, I hung on her every move. She leaned over a stereo, flipping through tapes in search of a mood saucy enough. Unsatisfied, she motioned to my side, where there was a cassette. MIDNIGHT HEAT."

I rewatched a shit load of movies last night. They Live
Halloween 4
Predator 2
Alien: Resurrection
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
GI Joe (the first one)

They all played great except for Halloween 4. That's the last time I ever need watch that one. It sucks.

Also, Danny Glover deserved some kind of honorary Oscar for his delivery of the line where he calls the Predator a pussy face..

I wish I could find a dress shirt the color of Glover's in the beginning of P2:

post #147286 of 152152
Predator 2 is the most 1990 looking movie ever. I hate almost everything in the film after he falls from the building and crashes into the old lady's apartment. But up until that moment it's pretty aces. I can only imagine if it had starred Swayze and it had been Dutch in the Gary Busey spot like it was supposed to (or at least conceived that way very early on). The film is R rated as fuck in a way that we just don't see anymore. There's gotta be as much cocaine as Scarface. It's unreal. Such a sweaty profane drug fueled madhouse of a sci-fi flick..
post #147287 of 152152

I know the character changed a ton once Busey was cast, but even so it's hard to picture Dutch being in that role. Doubt having Dutch included ever made it to the script phase but would be cool to read how different it would have come off with him back.

 

Since we're on the subject this pic from the filming of the new PREDATOR surfaced the other day:

post #147291 of 152152

Same I guess, PREDATOR 2 back then (only rated 12 here* so I was just old enough to catch it on the big screen) had a disappointing smell of not following the first film or having Arnold but it worked quite well as a spin-off, and its value has increased even more by today's standards.

Have you seen the new trailer for the new Apes?

 

 

It looks pretty good, but I have a question.

 

Are these apes all in one place, or did this somehow go global? Did I miss that somewhere? I think people got wiped out by a disease maybe, but how did apes all across the world get smart?

 

Why not just carpet bomb that whole area and be done with it?

post #147293 of 152152

The Savage Stack - BLADE (1998)

Wesley Snipes' Daywalker saga is still the best comic book action movie ever made.
 
 
"Stephen Norrington’s Blade opens with what arguably still stands as the best set piece in comic book cinema history. A goofball bro horn-dog (The Shield’s Kenny Johnson) has his little head brainwashed by a pallid temptress (Softcore Queen Traci Lords), who leads him through a meat packing plant to a secret techno club. Inside, bodies writhe and bump together as the DJ spins a Detroit-influenced remix of New Order’s “Confusion”, an ominous hand-painted banner screaming “Bloodbath” behind him. As the track rises and hands are thrown toward the heavens, the sprinklers open and release a torrent of crimson. Suddenly, everything becomes clear. That glimpse of human bodies, hung like stripped cattle, the player spotted on the way in wasn’t his mind playing tricks on him. This party isn’t just some ecstasy-fueled rave, where everyone goes home to indulge in one another’s sex. He’s been brought here as a lamb to the slaughter, these lilywhite dancers baring fangs that only belong to movie monsters.
 

This hapless douche’s savior comes in the form of pure blackness. Crawling through a plasma river, his hands slipping on the industrial tile floor, he stops upon reaching a grinning, imposing figure. Draped in a midnight trench coat and body armor, Blade (Wesley Snipes) isn’t here to dance. He’s here to massacre these white suckheads with automatic weapons, a customized sword, and a double-edged boomerang that’s perfect for facilitating multiple decapitations. With the aid of stunt choreographer Jeff Imada and cinematographer Theo van de Sande (not to mention a killer Second Unit crew), Blade cements an icon via a flurry of perfectly shot and cut action, as multiple faceless marauders bum rush the titular slayer as he sprays the crowd with silver bullets before beating the ever-living shit out of all oncoming challengers. It’s a Hong Kong-worthy burst of controlled chaos, the camera kept steady and wide so that Snipes’ skills are on full display, dispatching these beasts into piles of supernatural ash that conclude their previously immortal existences. Nothing in the subsequently established MCU has even come close to topping it."

Internet porn killed the erotic thriller dead . Why bother waiting for Sharon Stone to open her legs when you can get 5.384 results for free vids about 'big tits mature interracial gangbang'? Internet porn also killed the genuine exploitation movie, when you could not or dared not gain access to actual pornography and settled for the next best thing. How many horror movies include gratuitous nudity nowadays? Reportedly Michael Bay was shocked by the amount of breasts in the F13 he produced!

post #147299 of 152152

Rupert Pupkin mentioned this new CODE RED release. A Jan-Michael flick I've never seen. Cool!

 

 

Amazon description:

 

"He was a journalist in search of the truth! In 1970s Nicaragua, under the Somoza regime Texas journalist Jack Cox (Jan-Michael Vincent, The Return, Defiance, White Line Fever) arrives in Managua on assignment to see his old friend General Somoza (Lloyd Batista, Get Mean). While in town he also meets Maria Cardena (Julie Carmen, The Milagro Beanfield War), a member of a prominent family close to Somoza. Unknown to Cox, Maria is a member of the Sandinista movement who participates in raids against her government. When the two become romantically involved, he asks her to take him to the rebel camp so he can file his report including both sides of the story.
