Sorry, dear reader, for a brief break – I’ve been working on some reviews of upcoming movies for St Louis’ own QFest, a celebration of queer cinema. “Women Who Kill” comes highly recommended from this scribe, and you can check the reviews out at “We Are Movie Geeks”.
Anyway, this isn’t about that, although with this title it ought to be. I feel like QFest isn’t sleazy enough for this magnificent-looking piece of cinema.
I’ve seen the trailer several times now and it’s still every bit as intriguing as it was the first time. It came to my attention thanks to the involvement of rock-n-roll legend King Khan, but now I’m fully on board. What the hell is it about? How does one qualify as a Cocksmith? Could it possibly be as amazing as the trailer? Kitten Navidad is still alive? (Please check out our review of “Red Lips”, also featuring Ms Navidad, HERE)
If you’re anything like me, you’ll be queueing up for this movie on its release – if you were a fan of the director’s previous “Pervirella” from 1997, then you’ll definitely be interested. Please follow the movie on Facebook, Twitter, other sites I’m too old to know about, and drop a few dollars on it when it’s released. Because we can’t have another twenty years before the next Josh Collins movie!
Long-term ISCFC readers will know what a huge fan I am of Loren Avedon. He’s elevated many a martial arts movie with his top-level skills, although looking at his IMDB profile is sad because it revealed precious little since the mid-2000s. But he’s back! And even better, the movie he’s back in looks like a cracker. Here’s the trailer for “Risk Factor”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0jDFsJ2Lq0 I do love a good “retired CIA agent being dragged back into the game by a mysterious woman” story, plus there’s Russian bad guys, other mean looking hombres and an underground fight league (!) too. Don’t be too confused by the lookalikes of both Richard Crenna and Billy Drago knocking about, though. Co-star Elise Muller was in “Hammerhead” (but we won’t hold that against her) and has worked with the Duplass brothers in “Baghead” (sadly her only two “-head” related credits); and Brett Halsey has been working since the 50s. There’s both acting and ass-kicking chops on display here, and I’m looking forward to it. Being British and having problems with some VOD services, I’m going to try and watch it this week, but if not be prepared to just fend for yourselves on this one. Dropping a few £££ on a new Loren Avedon movie can never be a bad idea! Check out the movie’s Facebook page for some behind-the-scenes photographs, and we’ve got a Q&A secured with director/producer Frank Caruso too. If you watch the trailer and have any questions you’d like to ask him, leave them in the comments or send us an email to the ISCFC mailbox.
