Gonzo Film Reviews: Forced Entry


“What d'you think you are, some kinda gook from 'Nam?”



Not to be confused with the thriller of the same title (and starring Tanya Roberts), this is one o' those movies that the average, ordinary moviegoer has never heard of – and probably would never want to. It's one that even those suffering a mild dose of sick fuck-itis are unlikely to have even stumbled across in the early stages of their condition. This is a movie so grim, so grimy, and so genuinely appalling that it can only be reached by, like Dante, plumbing the depths of cinematic hell through the grungy and filthy realms of exploitation, sexploitation, softcore, hardcore and Satan knows what else before you finally find it, clenched in the perspiring claw of a demented perverted demon with seven pierced penises and a vile grin a mile wide. And then you must decide: do I want to to go any further – and actually choose to view this? And if so, why? It's one of those films for viewers who 'expected more' from Cannibal Holocaust, for whom Sinful Dwarf wasn't really grubby enough, who enjoyed I Spit on Your Grave for all the wrong reasons but wanted a bit more sex. Like, lots more. And rougher, too.

Harry gettin' tooled up

Due to its subject matter and relative obscurity, this is one of those movies that you only learn about gradually, either via initiation or by following lots of links on grindhouse movie review sites. It's one we've been chasing down for close on 8 years and we finally got to view it last month. Was it worth the wait? Well, uh...hell...yeah. For the simple reason that you'll never see anything like it ever again. This ain't one that even Rob Zombie will be rebootin' any time soon, sorry to say.

Gratuitous boobage

What's it about?

Porn legend Harry 'Deep Throat' Reems plays a psych-damaged Vietnam vet who decides to work out his post traumatic stress disorder issues by stalking, sexually assaulting and killing young women – stabbing them first with his cock and then with his knife. That's pretty much the entire story. So what's the big deal? The sex is full-on graphic hardcore, mostly unconsented, and pretty disturbing in that hairy early '70s kinda way. The fact this movie is marketed as 'vintage porn' is kind of alarming in itself – but indicative of an era in underground and adult movie making when it was a case of 'anything goes'. The money shots and close-up penetration scenes are industry standard, but it's the overall theme and mean-spirited brutality which sets this one apart.



What's it like?

Director Shaun Costello scores serious points by, according to the DVD liner notes, presenting the first motion picture ever to use the theme of post-Vietnam stress. In some ways this is the precursor to Taxi Driver and Deer Hunter. He further impresses by cutting actual (monochrome) war footage into the movie to serve as flashbacks. And whether by design, or accident, his use of Harry's looped and out-of-sync dialogue samples foster a growing sense of alienation, monomania, and general mental decay for the central character. There are lengthy, almost tedious sequences where little happens. The music is minimalist, the locations real and scruffy, the acting from the supporting cast often awkward and at times looks downright ad-libbed, especially with the two kooky bombed-out lesbian chicks in the final act, who probably really were on drugs at the time; at some moments they almost are antithetical to the story, filling a similar role to the two idiot cops in Last House on the Left (i.e unwelcome comic relief). They are pretty hot though, and do spend a lot of time getting to know each other intimately while Uncle Harry spies upon them from on high.



Overall Thoughts

From the opening shot of a blasted, bloody brain, you know this isn't going to be an easy ride (heh, pun intended) or even much like a standard porn flick of any sort. If you like your adult material to be nice and glossy and easy on the eye, with shaved crotches and pert tits all round, then look the feck away NOW as you may just upchuck. To be perfectly honest, we didn't find it very sexy either but it was undeniably fascinating and just plain wrong on so many counts, and that's why it held our morbidly curious attention. It's so un-PC it's delicious; so dirty and horrible it's beautiful; so cruel and amoral it does actually make you think; so of its time, that it ought to be treasured as a lost relic of the hideous depths to which adult cinema sank during the golden grindhouse era. You'll need a shower, big hugs from fluffy kittens in cotton sox, and a box of chocolates after watching this one to get it out of your system. You'll feel wrong and guilty for even having watched it to the end. And, seriously folks, there aren't many movies made today that you can say that about. This is legendary underground grindhouse grime of the lowest, basest, most uncompromising order, and for that we loved it. A definite 5.



Tech Specs
The sound is pretty muffled, what little there is. The film stock quality is dire with visible damage in almost every sequence, but according to the notes this 'director cut' was edited from multiple sources so maybe it's a miracle it looks as good as it does (not helped by the 4:3 frame format, to be honest).



Trivia

We named a chapter of our own grindhouse/splatter parody novel Last Gas Pump on theLeft after this movie in tribute – and we hadn't even watched it at that time.

Gonzo Film Reviews: Vampire Ecstasy


 Vampire Ecstasy: directed by Joe Sarno ('74)

We thought it was about time we started sharing some more of our views on the dozens of dodgy DVDs which fill up space here chez Gonz.

The star of this one is blonde sexploitation superstar Marie Forsa, probably best known for her Swedish X-rated romps like Flossie. Not surprisingly, it's fair to say that Marie gets most of the best adult scenes in this one, and she does look pretty damn fine too.


As a mid-70s Euro horror (ostensibly) about vampires, you'll come into this one armed with a checklist. And you won't be disappointed. Tune in to be guaranteed:

 - sumptious Central Europe location shooting
 - big creepy crumbly castle as the main focus for the action
 - creepy retainers of said castle "welcoming" innocent guests
 - horse-drawn transport, even though this is clearly the 1970s
 - a notorious ancestral figure who still exerts her curse
 - lots of random wandering around outside, usually at dusk or dawn, by hot young chicks in (and out of) their nightdresses.

The story is pretty basic, involving the previous occupier of the castle, Baroness Varga. She seemed to have Bathory's taste for slurping the red stuff out of any female she came upon, and through her possessed and Satanic servants, and the innocent guests who come to the castle, she hopes to return to life one day very soon.

This being Forsa, the relationships and sexual psychology are a bit more than you'd normally get in a Euroschlock Hammer Horror rip-off. Lesbian couplings and taboo brother/sister lusts all play their part here.


Marie Forsa gets cursed and is forced to masturbate herself endlessly until she does the gothic housekeeper's bidding for her in a ploy designed to disarm the hot female doctor (who in turn has the hots for her brother) of her protective garlic cross.


As far as vamp flicks go, there's very little actual seductive blood-lapping, so if it's blood and fangs you're looking for, look elsewhere. Although what you may not expect to see is a chick stripped naked by bats, and horny topless serving women in Princess Leia slave outfits chanting in German to keep the evil Baroness's spirit alive. The dubbing is pretty dire, not even of the 'so bad to be funny' variety, and is pretty drab and monotone throughout - but at least it does the job. Technically, we were a tad disappointed to see the film wasn't letterboxed and therefore the full scope of Sarno's camerawork and his locations can't be fully appreciated. But maintaining a full frame ratio didn't reduce Marie's contribution any, we're glad to report.


There's prob'ly not much more we can say about this one - we reckon Sarno is kinda' like Marmite. You either dig him or you don't, whether or not you accept his influence in the sexploitation genre. This one's slow but it's also kind of arty with it. The sexy scenes take a while to get going too, and are never as full-on (or full-frontal) as, say Franco, but for all that you're still left with the impression that you've seen something just a little more classy than you may have expected.


We give this one a generous 5. Definitely worth a look, and we reckon we'll even look at it again some time, as the film does conjure a pretty effective haunting, brooding atmosphere that may well linger in your consciousness long after the end credz.
