Some of my favorite Mexican VHS clamshell artwork
Great movie. Weird ass hybrid of so many genres. One part hilariously over the top romantic melodrama. Another part crazed cannibal/survival/horror film. Lotsa awesome soundtrack rips too. Most of the jungle warfare shit is set to one of my favorite tangerine dream albums. Actually prefer this one to The Beasts as far as hk new wave bat shit jungle adventures go. It’s a lot more satisfying
RAIDERS OF THE DOOMED KINGDOM
Chopped this together last night
Took some of the best moments from Born to Fight and made them into a short little video
lots of bad dubbing and carnage ensues. The GIF set in the post before this came from this movie.
MACHINE GUN FIRE
I bought a buncha shitty late era boot looking tapes in Denton at some Antique mall. I’d watched most of them and dumped them long ago.
But I’d never gotten around to watching one of them. The Day they Robbed America. It looked pretty shitty and generic you know, but I popped it in
AND IT WAS BLOWING MY DAMNED MIND, SO MANY EXPLOSIONS AND DEAD PEOPLE AND THIS DEATH SQUAD LOOKED SO STYLIN, FILIPINO CHURN EM AND BURN EM TO THE MAX
so I was like oh man, how’d I miss out on this movie
Then it turns out whatever movie was on that tape wasn’t the box art at all. Some how this movie called Phantom War had ended up in there.
Probably one of the best tape switches of all time to end up in my favor.
so I’m going to print out this sleeve and make myself a sweet looking clam for it
The Clan of Righteousness
Great movie. Lots of Triad stuff happens, Rituals and meetings and weird hand shakes, and you know, all that kinda fun stuff. It’s about the rise of this one dude in the gang, and all the turmoil that happens within the gang and their dispute with the Black Dragon Clan. Awesome Ocean Shores dub job where some of them decide to have really thick British accents sometimes, but most of them don’t.
The first part has action sprinkled through out, lags just a bit. A pregnant lady gets viciously kicked in the stomach, that had to suck, and various turf hits. But then the last 20 minutes kick in and it’s wall to wall gangland violence. Picture like if an early 90s bullet ballet had a child with a classical Shaw Bros film, you’d get this movie. Lots of 50’s styled gangsters, guys in Aikido like robes, and classically garbed Chinese guys blowing away eachother with Machine Guns and pistols and slashing away with swords. It’s a whole lot of fun. One scene in the hospital where the main guy is trying to protect his boss has shades of The Godfather, except a lady nurse assassin gets beat in the head with bed pan and shot. Stuff like that. I can’t really recommend this movie enough. A BLEWDY GOOD TIME IF YOU WILL
