This Thursday we are tweeting along to the second and third movies in Toho’s rarely seen Hammer-horror-styled “Bloodthirsty Trilogy,” which began with Vampire Doll (which we sank our teeth into last August).
(aka Come rubare la corona d’Inghilterra; The Incredible Paris Incident; Argoman the Fantastic Superman,; How to Steal the Crown of England; and Argoman superdiabolico)
Roger Browne plays Argoman, a superhero who loses his powers for six hours if he sleeps with a woman!
8:00 PM EST THE LAST SHARK (1981)
AKA L’Ultimo Squalo, AKA Great White, this Italian JAWS ripoff starring James Franciscus and Vic Morrow was pulled from theaters and banned from North American distribution after Universal sued and won!
9:45 PM EST DEVILFISH AKA MONSTER SHARK (1984)
Mario Bava’s son, Lamberto Bava, directed this Italian-French production about a military-experiment-hybrid-monster fish on the loose in Florida!
#driveinmob teams up with #Bond_Age_ for MAD MISSION 3 and FROM BEIJING WITH LOVE
We’re calling in the big guns and joining up with the #bond_age_ tweetalong for a couple of Hong Kong comedy spy spoofs! Our last tweetalong with #bond_age_ was Murderer’s Row in 2013, so we have been long overdue for a repeat of the fun.
The third installment of the daffy slapstick action series starring Sam Hui, Karl Maka and the great Sylvia Chang features super spy cameos from Richard Kiel and Peter Graves! Directed by the great Tsui Hark!
Stephen Chow’s action comedy about a butcher in rural China who is suddenly activated on a mission after years “undercover” has plenty of Bond gags and even some Wong Kar Wai spoofs thrown in for good measure, as it flip flops between daffy comedy and somewhat brutal sincerity in a way unique to Hong Kong cinema.
