Arriving on DVD on 19th March 2012, Love on a Pillow is courtesy of Studio Canal and we have three copies to give away.
“The Watermen” nails its colours to the mast from the off. In these first moments, a bedraggled blonde, her vest disarranged to reveal one pert breast, creeps through a reed-bed, only to be gorily harpooned and dragged off screaming. Exploitation flick ahoy.
The plot is a sort of sea-going “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” Trust fund douche Trailor (Jason Mewes) goes on a fishing jaunt in the Chesapeake Bay with brothers Mike (Luke Guldan) and Bret (Tyler Johnson,) nice girl Diana (Tara Heston) and bikini-clad floozies Lisa (Joy Glass) and Chrissy (Ashley Myers.) Unfortunately, they soon run afoul of a bunch of whiskery fishermen types who like to chop up rich white folks and sell them as bait.
They say three's a crowd but it is also the minimum requirements for a Human Centipede, and anyone unlucky enough to witness the sequel will know that a twelve person Human Centipede proved to be impractical, so it's with a deep sigh that we now consider Tom Six's promise of a five-hundred person Human Centipede.
Love on a Pillow celebrates its 50th anniversary with a rerelease later this month, but it's not clear why. This release has not been restored onto Blu-Ray, nor is it repackaged with a generous bundle of fascinating extras. It's not at all clear what it is we are supposed to be celebrating.
There can be something very satisfying about those old American made-for-TV movies – direct, no-nonsense direction, solid scripts and a chance for an unstarry cast to shine. “Sometimes They Come Back,” a late example from 1991 based on a Stephen King short story, shows at least some of these virtues.
In the late 50s, Hammer jolted British audiences out of a stupor of post-war austerity with a series of vivid Technicolor horrors, rich with Kensington gore and plush Victoriana. By the middle of the next decade, however, the studio's formula was starting to feel stale as cinema adapted to take account of relaxing censorship laws and changing public tastes.
The last time the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) made significant headlines it was banning Tom Six's The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) from UK distribution. As a governing body that retains a relatively low profile for the majority of the year, this kind of move is a seldom seen piece of news from the Board.
Daniel Craig’s involvement in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo franchise and the protracted financial problems at MGM studios had me concerned that the reboot of the Bond franchise could be over before it had really begun. So it was a welcome surprise when it was finally announced that work on Skyfall had begun at the tail end of last year.
John Carter uses Martian gravity to leap over The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel to win the weekend.
Scott Rosenberg, the man behind the screenplays for High Fidelity and Con Air, has been called up for polishing duties on the script for Pain & Gain, Michael Bay's dark-comedy action thriller.
