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.

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.
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.
See this Hammer Horror thriller Anytime-ish @The Fiesta 13. This one falls into The “Let’s Gaslight the Young Ingenue” genre of movies. As Always, Oliver Reed excels in this twisty movie. An underrated Hammer film gem.
