EZC Presents – Holidays From Hell

Posted in Movie night on August 7th, 2012 by admin – Be the first to comment

Race With The Devil

Two couples taking a motor home trip trip in the American south rubberneck what they think is a hippie orgy, only to discover it’s a murderous Satanic ritual. They make a blundering getaway, only to be pursued across the state by the Satanists, who’re hellbent on sending them to the big man downstairs.

A great mix of backwoods horror with the Satanic scare movies popular at the time, this is a fantastic movie, with some great action sequences and a creepy, paranoid atmosphere there doesn’t let up until the unforgettable ending.

Sleepaway Camp

Slightly disturbed and painfully shy Angela Baker is sent away to summer camp with her cousin. Not long after Angela’s arrival, things start to go horribly wrong for anyone with sinister or less than with sinister or less than honorable intentions.
Not the goriest of slasher movies but its twist ending ensured its place in horror history.

This month’s night is on the 29th of August and, as always, we’ll be starting at 7:30pm in the Banshee Labyrinth. This month we’re proud to be part of Scala Beyond!

EZC Presents : Token Zombie Film Night

EDINBURGH ZOMBIE CLUB PRESENTS
TOKEN ZOMBIE FILM NIGHT
featuring…
NIGHTMARE  CITY (1980, dir. Umberto Lenzi)
A mysterious plane lands in an Italian airport, disgorging a bunch of radioactive, tooled up zombies, who overwhelm the cops and spread mayhem across the city. These are no ordinary zomibes, they can drive, shoot guns and lay traps and conquer the city with the ruthless efficiency of an invading army.
You could see it as a salient warning over the use of nuclear power, but in fact it’s just ridiculous, unrelenting gory fun.

WILD ZERO (2000, dir. Tetsuro Takeuchi)
Only legendary Japanese garage rock band Guitar Wolf can stand between a race of aliens from destroying earth with an army of zombies.
A piece of preening insanity, this features guitar/flamethrower combos, hordes of zombies, a UFO plus a drinking game that can be played along with it.

EZC Presents – George Kennedy Night

EDINBURGH ZOMBIE CLUB PRESENTS
GEORGE KENNEDY NIGHT
FEATURING…
 ***PLEASE NOTE WE ARE ONE DAY EARLY THIS MONTH, NORMAL SERVICE WILL BE RESUMED IN JANUARY***
NIGHTMARE AT NOON (1988, dir. Nico Mastorakis)
A small town is a victim of a fiendish govenment experiment to test a new biologcal warfare agent on the hapless population, which turns them into homicidal maniacs. Kennedy’s on fine form here as the local sheriff, who teams up wth some out of towners to fight the zombiefied townsfolk and the sinister forces of the state.
An effective, at times outrageous and outlandish action film by Greek director Nico Mastorakis, who also made Island of Death, though we can’t promise goat molestation this time round but it does have lots of gun battles, car crashes, explosions and exploding helicopters to make up for it.
DEMONWARP (1988, dir. Emmett Alston)
Demonwood Forest. Dark. Mysterious. As old as Earth itself. Its brooding silence is only broken by the howling winds- and blood curdling screams! Welcome to the land of Demonwarp, a horrifying chasm between light and shadow, ancient fear and future shock, the living and the undead…
George Kennedy stars as Will Crafton, a vengeance bent hunter searching for the ominious creature that carried his daughter off months before. Into Crafton’s stalking grounds come a group of young campers on a quest of their own. Trapped in the green hell of Demonwood Forest, Crafton and the youths come face to face with a host of primeval and extraterresterial horrors, including a Bigfoot like manimal of nightmarish rage, an unstoppable army of zombie slaves and a venomous alien.
A truly demented slice of everything but the kitchen sink horror, Demonwarp has pretty much everything you could want in a film, including the aforementioned Bigfoot, zombies plus a ton of gore. Did we mention the Satanists and evil priest?

EZC Presents Mentalist Martial Arts Night

Taoism Drunkard (1984, dir Yuen Cheung-Yan)
Any attempt to explain the plot of Taoism Drunkard would ultimately prove as futile as it is utterly unnecessary.  Directed by and starring the brother of legendary martial arts choreographer Yuen Wo Ping, it is 89 minutes of no-budget non-stop kung fu chaos.  What more could you ask for than a drunken kung fu priest who drives around town in a small wicker rat? A wannabe hustler attempting to woo a grieving widow by dressing as a 6ft flaccid dildo (but is thwarted by a bad case of crabs), and a transvestite grandmother who’s unorthodox style of kung fu is at its most deadly after a few tokes on her trusty hash pipe, or when wielding a ridiculously massive cardboard sword?
Not to mention what must be cinema’s most chilling and ferocious rubber suited monster, straight from the bowels of hell itself, the unstoppable cock-hungry Banana Monster.
All of which is packaged together with plenty of surprisingly inventive and energetic kung fu, and cheekily (if not necessarily accurately) subtitled for comedy value by someone you presume probably should know better.  Words simply cannot do justice to this sadly neglected classic of 80s Hong Kong nonsense!
Undefeatable (1993, dir. Godfrey Ho)
Godfrey Ho has been responsible for no less than 120 of the most jaw droppingly dreadful – yet incredibly entertaining – motion pictures never seen, and is widely considered the Chinese Ed Wood.
He pulled out all the stops for 1993’s Undefeatable, an East meets West martial arts epic of uncompromising ineptitude starring none other than 5 time World Karate champion Cynthia Rothrock herself.  Here she’s thoroughly upstaged by the psychotic permed-mullet of serial rapist Stingray, who’s every appearance on screen proves more hilarious than the last, culminating in a series of astounding ear gougingly over the top fight scenes.  A worthy contender for best bad movie ever.
As always, we’ll be at the Banshee Labyrinth from 7pm and entry is free!

EZC Podcast – When Animals Attack!

Posted in Podcast on October 23rd, 2011 by admin – Be the first to comment

A more subdued and less controversial podcast this time around. Also, sadly, it’s quite a ty.bit shorter than it should be due to technical difficulties so you’ll not hear us discussing Wild Beasts or During Barty’s Party. Ho hum.
