Miike Double Feature This Fri@4-ish @The Fiesta 13

The Happiness of The Katakuris/Ichi The Killer

Extremely prolific director Takashi Miike has made every kind of film. The Fiesta 13 celebrates him with two very different movies. The Happiness of The Katakuris is a horror comedy musical that needs to be seen to be believed. While Ichi The Killer is an ultra-violent stylish action Yakuza film. The films were released within a month of each other in 2001.

Check them out @The Fiesta 13 this Friday @4-ish.

Night Creatures Anytime-ish @The Fiesta 13

Night Creatures

Hammer Horror Saturday Afternoon Fare. Peter Cushing plays a Parson of a small 18th Century English village who runs a bootlegging operation with lothario Oliver Reed. Also, there’s Marsh Phantoms terrorizing the populace and plenty of twists and turns in this bigger budget Hammer movie. Pretty enjoyable lesser-known Hammer film.

Dr. Strangelove Anytime-ish @The Fiesta 13

Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb

Another MOVIE EVERYONE SHOULD SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb Anytime-ish @The Fiesta 13.

Satires and comedies usually age poorly, but 1964’s Dr. Strangelove is still weirdly relevant, still funny and biting. Stanley Kubrick made an endlessly rewatchable movie with legs.

If you haven’t seen it, The Fiesta 13 has a 4k version with plenty of extras to explore. Peter Sellars in three roles backed by an outstanding cast. An almost perfect movie.

The plot: A rogue US Base Commander triggers World War 3.

Funny stuff.

There’s no fighting in the war room.

The Kiss of The Vampire Anytime-ish @The Fiesta 13

Kiss of The Vampire

Still reeling from losing Christopher Lee as Dracula, Hammer Pictures made another vampire movie without Dracula and without Peter Cushing as Van Helsing. The results are mixed.

A couple’s car breaks down and they end up getting involved in a vampire cult as life sometimes goes.

See Kiss of The Vampire Anytime-ish @The Fiesta 13.

The Curious Dr. Humpp A Fiesta 13 Mini-Review

The Curious Dr. Humpp

One of our mottos here @The Fiesta 13 is “Movies You Didn’t Know You Needed to See.” And last night, we found one we didn’t know we needed to see:

The Curious Dr. Humpp.

This 1969 Argentinian Sexplotation Movie has everything you want in a movie. Lots of 60’s hippie nudity, a brain talking in a jar, lesbians, orgies, weird sex toys, weird-eyed human robots who chloroform people having sex, the world’s most powerful aphrodisiac and a crazy mad scientist running the show.

The plot concerns Dr. Humpp who has created a powerful aphrodisiac that he injects into young nymphomaniacs to rev them up, so he can ‘milk’ their intense sexual desire which he drinks to stay alive. Hauntingly attractive Rachel with the most beguiling blank sex stare and a reporter go up against Humpp and his Atonomons.

The most surprising part, The Curious Dr. Humpp is a pretty well-made movie with quick pacing, a good, if repetitive, soundtrack and interesting shots. The Arrow Video print also looks fantastic.

If you like cult movies, especially from the Late ’60’s, put The Curious Dr. Humpp on your list, it’s a fun surprise.
