2014 Exploitation/B-Movie Challenge - Day 5

Day 5 began a viewing of THE TRAMPLERS, a spaghetti western directed by Albert Band and featuring Gordon Scott, Joseph Cotton, and Franco Nero. Quite the impressive cast. If only the movie was as impressive. THE TRAMPLERS is a pedestrian effort. The story is a family drama affair, which does lend a bit of excitement with the blood feud. There is nothing special about this film however, it doesn't set itself apart. If you're a big western fan it is worth checking out but if you're looking for the best examples of the genre you can skip this one. 5/10

Then came OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ, this is the 3rd entry in the series and is a prequel. This is actually the first film I've seen from the series and I was surprised to find a decent action/horror film based around the Nazi zombies. I'll be reviewing the DVD in full so I'll just leave this one be. 5.5/10

The new Blu-ray of MS.45 has been calling my name for a few weeks since I got it. It's awesome. If you've never seen this film then stop reading and go watch it! It's a violent, mean, and nasty rape/revenge film where Thana, a mute seamstress in NYC is raped (repeatedly) and goes vigilante on men across the city. It is a damn near perfect piece of exploitation filmmaking from Abel Ferrara. 9/10

The night closed with DEMON RESURRECTION, a typical indie horror movie. Not bad, not great. It featured some cool design for the monsters and some nice boobs. There isn't a ton to say about it right now since I'll be reviewing this DVD as well. 6/10
