The Round Table - Week 9

Once again, DVD Trash is part of the fantastic Round Table at the Horror Blog, this weeks topic is rare cinematic gems!

Name an obscure gem which you can recommend without reservation?
DVD Trash:
Since I’m a fan of Turkish cult classics, then I can only recommend picking up the Kilink movies from Onar Films, but if you can find it, go for their recent release of 3 Mighty Men ( 3 Dev Adam), starring Captain America and El Santo, plus it also includes some (un)forgettable dialogue such as “Spider is a child-minded lunatic”. Failing that and if your after some grubby Italian sleaze then try and track down Renato Polselli’s “Rivelazioni di uno psichiatra sul mondo perverso del sesso” - a film I’ve only ever seen for sale at conventions!

Kriminal Original Soundtrack Arrives

Recently arrived to the DVD Trash collection is the Kriminal OST - one of my favourite comic book movies - from MovieGrooves!

"The long awaited released of the full soundtrack from Umberto Lenzi's 1966 cult crime-caper movie - Kriminal, based on the famous comic strip by writer Max Bunker and artists Magnus.
Lenzi's movie version of Kriminal starred Glenn Saxson as the eponymous anti-hero master-thief, a character much in the same vein as Diabolik - another comic strip character who also had got the movie treatment in 1968 by Mario Bava.

The Kriminal soundtrack is a fantastic mix of groovy dance beats, smooth jazz and lounge alongside some tension-heightening incidental music and ethnic elements such as Arabian arabesques."

Really nice grooves and one for fans to pick up. If your unfamiliar with Kriminal then you can read some DVD reviews of Kriminal and Il Marchio di Kriminal, with some more background to the character here
