Posted by Josh Samford On September - 24 - 2012

Strippers vs. Werewolves (2012)
Director: Jonathan Glendening
Writers: Pat Higgins and Phillip Barron
Starring: Adele Silva, Sarah Douglas, Nick Nevern, and a cameo by Robert Englund.



The Plot: Strippers vs. Werewolves is the story of Justice (Adele Silva), a young stripper trying her best to make a living. While giving a private dance for some random goon, her vision of the world is completely turned upside down. The vagrant who has paid to watch her dance begins to transform into a werewolf. A small tussle ensues and Justice stabs him in the eye with a silver fountain pen. Her boss, Jeanette, quickly figures out that this man was actually a werewolf. Due to her experience with werewolves in the past, Jeanette realizes that the body needs to be dumped asap. She uses Franklin, the muscle of the club, to bash out this dead man’s teeth and dump the body without leaving any clues as to how his life came to an end. At the same time that this happens, we are introduced to a group of werewolves who live only to cause absolute chaos. Roaming around town like a gang, we see this group cause a decent amount of mayhem while searching for their now-deceased werewolf brother. They do eventually find his body, but from here their search has only just started. They are now deadset on fighting the person responsible for the death of their friend. However, one member of this gang might have a slight conflict of interest. As it turns out, the gang-member named Scott also happens to be Justice’s very own boyfriend. She doesn’t know that her boyfriend is a walking dog monster, but after biting into him during a voracious afternoon quickie, it seems that she may have accidentally infected herself with the curse. What will happen as this situation escalates? Will the werewolves discover that Justice was the one who killed their friend? Will Justice be turned to a creature of the night? Only time will tell!

Attack!! (1978)
Director: Yasuharu Hasebe
Writers: Hideichi Nagahara
Starring: Asami Ogawa, Yōko Azusa, and Shigeru Ichiki



The Plot: Attack!! tells the story of a young female police officer named Kumiko (Asami Ogawa) who gets very little respect. Often harassed while on the job, she has numerous problems in her life. For one, she isn’t very open about her sexuality. She keeps everything bottled up and doesn’t let anyone else know that she accepts or enjoys sex. Second, she is afraid of confrontation. When men approach her in a sexual way, she becomes even more reserved than she normally is. As it turns out, both her fellow police officers and the criminals that she chases take advantage of this aspect of her personality. With all of these circumstances, Kumiko is about to have her life changed in the most unfortunate way possible. While driving in her police car, she has her vehicle rammed into a building by an unknown assailant. He demolishes the car by repeatedly slamming into it, but he isn’t done yet. He gets out of his car and proceeds to violate the young police officer. Having had her eyes and mouth covered with tape, Kumiko has no idea who assaulted her. She doesn’t report the crime to the authorities, but instead decides to take justice in her own hands. As she begins to search through the files of men who she has arrested previously, she finds that her attacker is a serial rapist and that he will be back again.

Iron Angels 2

Posted by Josh Samford On September - 14 - 2012

Iron Angels 2 (1988)
Director: Raymond Leung and Teresa Woo
Writers: Teresa Woo and William Hsu
Starring: Moon Lee, Alex Fong, Elaine Lui, and Ting-Wai Chan



The Plot: Iron Angels 2 begins by showcasing this elite squad of covert agents, the same group from the original Iron Angels, going into battle yet again. This time, we watch as they deal with a hostage negotiation that goes terribly wrong. Soon after saving the day, yet again, the Angels go on a trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, so that they can enjoy some much-needed relaxation time. When they arrive, they quickly run into one of Fong’s (Alex Fong) former friends, a man named Peter (Nathan Chan Ting-wa). Peter is well-to-do and deeply respected in Kuala Lumpur. Fong is taken in by his former friend, and the friendship that he once had with Peter and another pal named Marco resurges. This trio make up a makeshift group called “the three musketeers,” and it seems as if nothing could draw them apart. Unfortunately, these three have spent a great amount of time apart, and Fong has some very dark elements hiding in his past. Now Elaine (Elaine Hui) and Moon (Moon Lee) must team with Fong and investigate his former friend. What they find could very well lead to a war on this island nation.

Karate-Robo Zaborgar

Posted by Josh Samford On September - 12 - 2012

Karate-Robo Zaborgar (2011)
Director: Noboru Iguchi
Writers: Noboru Iguchi
Starring: Itsuji Itao, Asami, and Akira Emoto



The Plot: Karate-Robo Zaborgar tells the sentimental story of a boy and his motorbike. More specifically, this is the story of a boy named Yutaka Daimon (Itsuji Itao) and a bike named Zaborgar. Why does his bike have a name? Because it is a robot who transforms from a regular motorbike into a fearless cybernetic-humanoid warrior, duh! Daimon’s father was a very peculiar scientist. After allegedly poisoning Daimon’s older brother with his breast milk (indeed, the father nursed his children), Daimon’s dad was put in a position that would allow him to craft Zaborgar. After his father’s untimely death, Daimon is joined by his robotic pal and together they dedicate their lives to fighting for righteousness. Sound pretty crazy? Well, the movie is just getting started. It turns out that there is an evil corporation named Sigma that intends to create the world’s most destructive cyborg. Sigma plans to create a robot that will inevitably stand as tall as a mountain. For Sigma to achieve this goal, the corporation has to feed DNA to its gigantic robot. How does this work? Well, who knows, science isn’t a top priority in this movie. So, with DNA on their mind, Sigma intends to kill as many people as is necessary to complete their goal, but Daimon and Zaborgar are thankfully standing in their way. Will this duo be successful, or will the evil Sigma corporation bring total destruction to the earth?

Raping (1978)
Director: Yasuharu Hasebe
Starring: Kyôko Aizome, Akira Hanagami and Hirotarô Honda



The Plot: The appropriately titled Raping! follows a lovely young woman who begins a roadtrip to Tokyo, but is instead taken on a nightmare trip into the deepest bowels of hell. Her travels begin with a sequence that shows her trying to be helpful to a stranger who is having automobile troubles on the side of the road. Instead of providing a “thank you” for the assistance, what follows is a very brutal assault. As our leading woman then travels from one destination to the next, we see that the rest of the world wants to take advantage of her as well. Will she be able to stand up for herself, or will these men continue to dominate her life?
