~ WILD 'n' CRAZY MEXICAN LOBBY CARDS FROM THE SIXTIES And SEVENTIES ~

Now, it's time for some eye candy from those poster artists south of the border. I've chosen a nice selection of titles with eye popping artwork for your approval, so, enjoy!

These women look more like sexy flight attendants than killer invaders from space!

Great lobby card, tried to find the DVD on Amazon, and... ZILCH!

I dig Maura Monti the most, check out her costume and that weird Black Lagoon type creature!

Here's one wild 'n' crazy movie we've already posted called AUTOPSY OF A GHOST!

Here's the wacky Mexican version of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, we'll be posting this flick one of these days, here at The Dungeon. I have over 100 Mexican Monster Movies in my DVD collection.

Capulina movies are always especially goofy. This title is currently $100 on Amazon, another title, CAPULINA CONTRA LOS VAMPIROS, is nearly $200!!!.. I have them both.

Is this a classic card or what?!.. Wrestlers, vampires and lots of red, red blood!

Here's another wild flick with wrestler Superzan, Mexicans love to use midgets in their stories.

This is a very nice Crime card that features Adventure, Romance, Action, and naturally, Music!

This is the card for part 1 of the popular Mummy trilogy starring Ramon Gay and Rosita Arenas.

A Human Robot was brought in to fight the Mummy in part 3, this one is totally whacked out!

Another rare flick I have on DVD-R, we used to see this guy's ugly puss in the pages of FAMOUS MONSTERS back in the day. I also used to have a complete set of FMs.

This is a beautiful lobby card, it has all the elements that makes it an attractive collectible.

I'm pretty sure this card would be considered a fine example of kitsch artwork, wowzers!!

Time for a little trip to the jungle, where we can find bloodthirsty natives and shrunken heads!

There's always a place for sexy vampire movies, this one even has Santo in it!

This time it isn't just sex, it's LOVE!!

Here's a great looking JD card from LOOK IN ANY WINDOW starring Paul Anka.

Another nice card, this time from SHOCK CORRIDOR starring Peter (THE CRAWLING HAND) Breck. I have the last two cards in my collection... Tune in Wednesday when The Dungeon will have another rare flick for you!

WHAT’S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE (1969) – Well, is it?

 
Greg Goodsell here -- what we have in the Dungeon tonight is a vintage British sex farce that seems a tad too naughty for these here parts.  WHAT'S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE also went under the title GIRL TROUBLE in the States or NORMAN - GIR DEN GAS in foreign territories!

Yes, our man Norman Wisdom plays banker Timothy Bartlett ruled by his humdrum, workaday routine. For a British sex quickie, however, WHAT’S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE has quite a pedigree! It’s produced by horror film producer extraordinaire Tony Tenser, released by his Tigon Studios. Tenser had a hand in such classics as WITCHFINDER GENERAL (1968) and BLOOD ON SATAN’S CLAW (1971)! Director Menachem Golan would later join forces with his cousin Yorum Globus to forge the incredible bomb factory known as Cannon Pictures in the 1970s! He died on August 8 at the ripe old age of 85 this very year! But we’re getting ahead of ourselves -
 
 To borrow a phrase from an old Kinks ditty, “What are we living for? Two-roomed apartment on the second floor.” Norman’s three adorable kids ignore and don’t appreciate all of his hard work -- can you feel a mid-life crisis coming on?

Sent to a conference by his ailing boss at the coastal town of Southport, trouble comes quickly! These two British lolly birds are about to get our friend Norman into all kinds of trouble! LET THE CARTOON BEGIN!

Adjusting their sunglasses, Nikki (Sally Geeson) and Meg (Sarah Atkinson) size our Norman up as a repressed old prude! That’s about to change in a very big way –

Yup, a little bit of leg will get any girl far in this world. Norman here feigns disapproval –

Geeson, the lovely brunette in this shot is the one and only daughter of distinguished British actress Judy Geeson of HORROR PLANET/INSEMINOID (1980) infamy! She would only appear in a few more pictures until she chucked acting all together in 1972 to pursue a teaching career!

The girls ply their wares and let slip that they will be partying in town that weekend. You can see the bug slip into Norman’s ear at this point!

There’s a lot more from where that came from?

Out and about to pick up a pack of fags -- that’s CIGARETTES, for you yanks, Norman stumbles into a -- literally -- underground nightclub called the Screaming Apple!

As you can see, poor Norman is a real fish out of water in this kooky comedy as he takes to a psychedelic hippie joint in black bowtie and tuxedo!

As plainly evident, there are a lot of British hippies who were having FUN FUN FUN in this nightspot where patrons can swing on inner tubes! Looks unsafe …

The enthusiastic British hipsters welcome Norman with open arms, because -- HE HAS MONEY! YAY!

Here is why this film is remembered, if at all -- it features the noted and celebrated psychedelic and blues rock group the Pretty Things! The Things contribute four songs to this film’s soundtrack. As you can see, these Things aren’t particularly “pretty” -- but neither is rock and roll!

What is good for the goose REALLY is good for the gander, as this male waiter, in the manner of other swingin’ female birds of the time, goes “topless. “

Why, even a member of the house band also goes the Tarzan route!

And here’s our fave “it” girl again, trying to convince Norman to stop being such an old fuddy-duddy!

Bedding down with his lovely for a night of extramarital sex, a lock of her hair strategically placed foresees the macho street clone look that would become popular in the following decade!

Norman afterwards embraces the youth counter-culture. A bit of booze and some Carnaby Street clothes make the man!
Yours truly is ashamed to say that he, at one point, wore vests like that -- as late as 1976!

Feeling remorseful, Norman drags his wife (Sally Bazely) to Southport for some hippie clothes and free-wheeling fun, but as she slathers on some cold cream, our hero realizes -- you can’t go home again! Is what’s good for the goose REALLY good for the gander? You’ll have to see the movie to find out! This is Greg Goodsell – over and out!

IL POZZO DI SATANA (Satan's Pit) / Toei Company - 1965

It's Friday Fright with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots kind of a Japanese version of THE HAUNTING with breathing doors among other disturbing things! Alternate titles include HOUSE OF TERRORS and THE GHOST OF THE HUNCHBACK.

Here's the evil dude in his coffin, with a flower in his mouth. His wife tries to remove it but she cannot, then, him and the coffin are burned in an incinerator...

Eegah!! sent over a fun sound clip of pure insanity for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by our atomic powered hunchback servant, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a taste of... SATAN'S PIT!

The wife goes back to the house where a team of experts in paranormal activity joins her.

The hunchback is there as the servant, he has remained in the house since his master's death.

The team inspect some grave sites in search of clues about the causes of the eerie goings on in the old dark house.

The hunchback seems to know about the happenings and the team interrogates his ass!

Then, a local wandering psychic pops in to give his take on the situation!

There's a séance with the psychic, he channels the evil spirit and turns into a demon!

Then, the master returns in the hunchback's body. He tells the group of his plans...

He also tells them about what has caused him to turn evil, the woman here will betray him for another and have him imprisoned in Satan's Pit!

The group finds Satan's Pit in the basement and discover the remains of the ghost.

There are lots of creepy items in the house, including this statue of a demon!

I just like this shot, that's all... Sex is a big deal in this movie!

In the end, this pure and innocent woman is the only one that can stop the evil! Tune in tomorrow when The Virus Man is back with a very cool flick from good old 1969.
