Noche Infernal (1992)
DIR: Miguel Somera
Pedro Infante Jr. as ringleader of a particularly toxic band of party-hearty bastards—as if the guys from Animal House grew into sweaty, marauding rapists.
Pervasive sleaze, though the middle lags due to repetition. Explodes in the last act when the two couples being victimized by Infante Jr. and co. launch a violent, bloody counterattack.
My Buddy’s makin GIF’s now, GO HIM
I wrote an article about punk movies for the new blood video, and Noche Infernal got a blurb, so you should pick that up and read it and lemme know what you think. Also
this trailer is so unheard of, which is really weird. Absent from the American release. Absent from Youtube. Such an awesome trailer for a mediocre movie. There’s no way this trailer won’t get you pumped
I finally decided to rip it from some old DVD-r of Agitator part 2 I’ve had on my shelf since 2002. It also appears to be shot on video.
Siete en la Mira 2: La Furia de la Venganza
One of the best action films of all time
I’ve said a million words about this movie and I still don’t think I’ve done it justice.
STRAIGHT EDGE REVENGE
DIE BEER DIE
Upper echelon AIP flick. This movie is a winner. Super sleazy and early 90s. The S&M aesthetic feels super sketchy, which is probably why I love it. Spikes, leather masks, and dingy pink lighting, that’s pretty much all any movie ever needs.
Gimp killer goes around murdering prostitutes. You can probably guess the whole arc. But taken in context, it’s a really interesting whodunnit with cops and politicians.
If I could sum it up one scene. He swings his saw blade machete and takes off a hooker’s head. Slow motion fly through the air. YES. that.
also, I’m pretty sure I saw Haim Saban’s name in the credits. I’m also pretty sure the principal from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers plays the police chief.
yeah, actually, now that I think about it, Power Ranger costumes are pretty similar to gimp suits
There’s a good parting thought
FOTOGRAFIANDO A LA MUERTE
What a sick little treat. This movie is glorious.
You got the fashion photographer that lures models into his studio only to tie them up and murder them
you got El Puma De Sinaloa and his hot girlfriend gettin in and out of love. Coupled with lots of awesome live musical performances that have finally demonstrated to me what that cowboy club at La Gran Plaza probably looks like on the inside.
And then you got the cops on the trail of the killer. Fernando Almada and some angry young buck.
All four characters eventually intertwine. It’s not very original and you can probably guess what’s gonna happen. Typical 90s Mexican Giallo type stuff. But the killer is so absolutely depraved that I can forgive the rest.
He ties up half naked chicks, stabs them with his patented neck sticker, the blood that jets out he collects in his mouth while spasming. He does this quite a few times and it never gets old.
I guess there’s not much more to it then that
I bought an alternate copy of this movie at the same time I bought this version. It had a much nastier cover but the wrong tape was in it so I had to return it. I was sad, but you know.
This movie gets 4 bloody neck sprays outta 5
Pretty cool killer punk movie. Would expand upon it more but I honestly don’t remember much about it, just that I really liked it.
The description on the back should be a enough
A gang imposes its crocked will
CASOS DE ALARMA II
First movie I’ve completed this October. It’s a doozy.
Sebastian Ligarde had quite the traumatizing childhood. Witnessing a rape as a very young child, it completely decimated the very delicate psyche his overbearing Ma had beat into him.
He grows up to be successful though. He runs a business and gets married. On his wedding night when he’s about to consummate dat shiz with his beautiful wife, he pictures his Ma in bed and completely flips out and balls up in a corner. He’s got issues.
EVENTUALLY, HE FIGURES OUT HIS PROBLEM THOUGH
One by one, he kidnaps the women that work for him. He locks them up in this crawlspace and literally lets the rats have them. When he goes back to check on his first victim, she’s literally a fleshy skeleton with hair and eyeballs lol, it’s quite the visual I tell you what. He takes her to a foggy cemetery and buries her. HER SOULS STILL DANCING THOUGH, like literally. He stands there in the graveyard whilst picturing her dancing naked around him.
rinse and repeat for a few more victims
and so on and so forth
a few other things happens, but I mean really, probably the only reason you’d watch this is to see the sleazy mayhem, and well it definitely delivers in that aspect
