Oh boy… That Emanuelle girl is back, and guess what, Enemaniacs… She’s more erotic and exotic than ever!
That’s how they advertised Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals on posters and various other ads. That does beg the question of exactly how erotic she can be if there are cannibals and shit running about. Trust me, folks, I have seen some Italian cannibal flicks and they tend not to be especially sexy. In fact, they tend to be, like, super duper gross.
So leave it to Joe D’Amato to come in and see what he can do. First thing’s first, he brings Laura Gemser along as a photojournalist who finds a woman in a loony bin who isn’t just a cannibal herself, but has Amazonian tattoos all over her skin. That’s a plus… Not the tatted up cannibal broad, but Laura Gemser. She’s always welcome here at B-Movie Enema. Continue reading “Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (1977)”
When you have a blog that discusses movies or possibly cultural turning points in the form of celluloid, eventually, it becomes an absolute truth of your life that you will discuss something like what I have this week – Sexsquatch.
I’m not entirely sure what to say about this movie. Obviously, there is a Wikipedia page for it. It’s widely known that the Sexsquatch Wikipedia page is largest and most extensive page in the history of Wikipedia. However, I do also believe that the less you know about the biggest moneymaker in the history of film, grossing $47 billion against a $350 million budget, the better.
Now, of course any time a film breaks through and makes a cultural impact the size of Sexsquatch has, there will be haters. There will be those who are detractors. There will be contrarians. There will be those who will try to be elitist in saying that your love of such a mainstream film makes you a farthead. Possibly even a monkeydick. They’ll even call you a fuckqueef.

It’s been a bit since I did an anthology movie. In fact, I’ve only ever done one in the past. So let’s make up for that with a giant, nearly two full hours of kooky b-movie stories rolled into the horror comedy Chillerama from 2011!
The four segments contained within Chillerama are framed by a connecting story at a drive-in theater that is playing monster movies. Then, each of those four segments is a parody and homage to a particular genre and style. Additionally, each segment is directed by a different person – Adam Rifkin who directed mostly a split between family fare and boner comedies/thrillers, Tim Sullivan who was mostly known for producing movies like Detroit Rock City before making 2001 Maniacs with Robert Englund, Adam Green who made his mark with the Hatchet series of horror films, and Joe Lynch who is most recently known for directing Mayhem starring Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving.
Chillerama was the brainchild of Rifkin and Sullivan who met on Detroit Rock City and spitballed an idea for an anthology called Famous Monsters of Filmland – a title based on the Forrest J. Ackerman magazine that they grew up reading. Continue reading “Chillerama (2011)”
Oh baby do we have lots to talk about today, my dear Enemaniacs!
This week’s B-Movie Enema is Caged Heat. It might, at first, come off as just a run of the mill, women-in-prison flick from the mid-70s. It might even come off as some of that sleaze Roger Corman was trading in during the 70s as well. To a very minor degree, I’d say you’re right about both things.
But… there’s a twist. You see, Corman wasn’t happy with the women-in-prison flicks previously released by his New World Pictures. He thought they were maybe missing something, something important, something fresh and new. So he tapped a producer at the studio to see what life can be breathed into this subgenre of exploitation. Enter Jonathan Demme. He had produced a previous Corman women-in-prison release, The Hot Box. This time, though, Demme wasn’t going to settle as a writer or producer. He wanted to direct.

Happy Valentine’s Day, ya jerks!
Sorry, I get surly around Valentine’s Day. And there are many reasons for that. I always get one year older (and one step closer to sweet, merciful peace that is death) around this time of year. I tend not to like seeing all the stupid commercials that remind me that, yeah, I’m eating for one on VD with my cats. It’s just a general reminder of a dark, lonely existence…
But not this year!
Nope! This year, I decided to send all you Enemaniacs a Valentine in the form of a Roger Corman-produced, Candice Rialson-starring romp called Hollywood Boulevard! The story of this movie, though, helps make this a little more fun. Continue reading “Hollywood Boulevard (1976)”
“If they couldn’t get him easy… They got him hard…”
With a tagline like that, how could this NOT be featured on B-Movie Enema?!? This week’s feature, 1974’s The Single Girls, will open the book on two elements that I’m kind of surprised has taken me over 200 articles to finally get to:
- Ferd and Beverly Sebastian
- Claudia Jennings
And, if you ask me, this comes not a moment too soon. Continue reading “The Single Girls (1974)”
Holy shit, guys and gals. It’s my 200th B-Movie Enema.
I’ll get to the more serious shit at the end of my look at this movie to try to sum up how it feels to be 200 enemas old. But I can say this – it doesn’t hurt nearly as much as you might think. In fact, I think I’m starting to like it.
So this week’s piece (of shit) is all about Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance. Frankly, I almost have to talk about this movie. Everyone in the world, for the past several years, have talked about Samurai Cop. It’s an infamous bad movie. However, if you come here each week to read about these goddamn movies, you know all about Samurai Cop. If nothing else, you’re aware of it or have seen clips from it. It’s Ed Wood famous. It’s mind-boggling in its structure and the way it plays out.
It’s simply glorious. Continue reading “Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance (2015)”
It’s another Friday, so that means NEW B-MOVIE ENEMA DAY!
This week, I have something a little more recent and from a group I’ve come to greatly appreciate. The Sleeper is a 2012 slasher/thriller from Gamma Knife Films and Scream team Releasing. It was written and directed by Justin Russell. It’s meant to emulate the style of low budget slashers than ran wild after the release of 1978’s Halloween and 1980’s Friday the 13th.
Quite frankly, the 80s are in right now – in a BIG way. More on that shortly. First, though, let’s talk about Scream Team Releasing. Continue reading “The Sleeper (2012)”
