Yes, it's another good week, but mostly for some retro Kaiju action. First off we have ALL MONSTERS ATTACK (GODZILLA'S REVENGE) followed by MONSTERS FROM THE UNKNOWN PLANET (TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA). Following the Asian flavor we have the cult favorite KARAOKE TERROR (Shôwa kayô daizenshû) which is somewhat in the vein of Clockwork Orange. Then we have Umberto Lenzi's classic zombie slaughter flick NIGHTMARE CITY from 1980 which I really loved. Next let's skip to the beautiful award winner which we haven't covered, but the rest of the world has, THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY. Let's throw in PISTOLEROS, a European mondern-day take on gangsters and westerns. Only 2 more.. the cheapo Asylum knockoff post apocalyptic sequel, WAR OF THE WORLDS 2, and last but not least, the erotic scifi Italian-sploitation flick BEAST IN SPACE! Check after the break for trailers and the works.
