In the late 60’s she got her start in martial arts and crime pictures before landing the lead role in Nikkatsu studios in the film Female Juvenile Delinquent Leader: Stray Cat Rock (1970). […]

Beautiful Ladies of Genre: Bloody Mallory (2005) with Olivia Bonamy

When you hear about the French and horror films these days, the conversation inevitably moves towards films such as Martyrs, Ils, or Frontier(s).

One of the great joys in life is perusing the selections available for Instant Watch on Netflix and finding the same kind of oddball titles and offbeat films I used to dig up in video rental places.

Angel of Death (2009): Zöe Bell Proves There’s Life After Death (Proof)

Like most folks, I was introduced to the stuntwoman turned actress Zöe Bell through her performance in Quentin Tarantino’s part of Grindhouse, Death Proof. While her acting was only so-so, the skill she showed with her stunt work was incredible, and when I came home and checked her out, I was surprised to see how […]
