Welcome to Girls, Guns and Ghouls, dear friends. Come on in, and take shelter from the storm. Who is your host this evening, you ask? Please call me Boris Lugosi. I adore the cinema of the weird, the cult and the psychotronic. To me, true entertainment has nothing to do with the Hollywood mainstream. It's all the Z-grade abominations, horror, trash and sleaze that used to beam brazenly out of drive-in projectors, flicker late at night on the television creature-feature, or gave you a thrill of anticipation as you pushed that R-rated video into your huge, eighties VCR. So within the walls of this temple of the wonderful and the wretched, you'll find writings on films that run the gamut of the seminal Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, to the gore-drenched Zombie Flesh-eaters! You'll encounter evil midgets, fend off lecherous men with x-ray eyes, leer at sadistic, hot-rod driving go-go dancers and recoil in terror at ghetto vampires with afros and attitudes ... and folks, these are my kind of people!
I'll just let you in on something now, so you don't get all upset a few minutes down the track. This site is definitely intended for mature viewing. Some of the classic films covered are quite old and sedate by today's standards. Some of them are harmless (but somehow twisted) comedies that somehow niggled and nagged their way in. Some again - the pounding lifeblood of this collection - are wild and uncontrollable exercises in sheer, delerious exploitation! While there's no gore or nudie-pictures, some of the sleaze-a-thons reviewed may inherently offend some panty-waists out there. I'm a-warning ya!
In the end, the essence of this collection is reviews and more reviews. A long-term project of writing that will expand greatly over the years. I can't support video clips or audio files, so if a purely reading experience with a few photos here and there doesn't zap your electrodes, I'm sorry to let you down. If a miracle occurs and you like what you're seeing, well, your old Uncle Boris loves to communicate with other trash-loving Girls and Ghouls.
So if you're a like-minded person (or whatever sort of thing you are), who enjoys the bizarre world of cinema on the edge, drop me a line and let me know what you think. Thoughts, suggestions, questions, I'd love to hear from you.
Do have a pleasant evening, and click on the links below to see the rest of the site.
