Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...Our Favorite Movie Posters #100: Original Gangstas (1996) - A 1996 action movie filmed and set in urban Gary, Indiana, the film stars Blaxploitation legends Fred Williamson, Pam Grier, Jim Brown, Richard Roundtree, Ron O'Neal, and more.

The film details the deteriorating state of an impoverished Gary neighborhood terrorized by a street gang called the Rebels. When the gang murders a local boy, it prompts the emergence of several individuals who grew up in the neighborhood: the "original" Rebels. (Wikipedia)

While this movie was made long after the Blaxploitation heyday of the '70s, all the ingredients are here. Most of the '70s black action cinema stars make an appearance in the film, bringing back memories of sitting at the drive-in, or the neighborhood movie house, cheering, jeering, and throwing your popcorn at the screen.

If you're a fan of '70s blaxploitation, give "original Gangsta" a watch, it'll have you digging through your DVD collection, or searching Netflix for the original "classics" these icons appeared in.

Fred Williamson Double Feature: Original Gangstas / Soda Cracker is available on

Click to View Larger...“By day, nurse Abby Russell (Paz de la Huerta) lovingly attends to the patients at All Saints Memorial Hospital; by night, Abby prowls nightclubs, luring unfaithful men into dangerous liaisons. After Danni, a young, sensitive nurse, joins the hospital staff, Abby pursues her friendship. But when the friendship turns to obsession, Danni spurns Abby, unleashing Abby’s fury and a rampage of terror.”

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...Yeah, Paz de la Huerta is in this, so you know there's going to be plenty of nudity, and plenty of crazy. If there's one thing that girl knows, it's crazy. (In her movies, of course.)

This looks pretty wacky. If I watch it, It'll be via streaming, I wouldn't go to the theater for it. However, I'm betting it'll be right up some of you sick bastards alleys. 

I look high and low, and could not find a red band version for the pervs among us, so the green band trailer will have to do.

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...The Amazing Transplant (1970) - Arthur (Juan Fernandez) visits Mary (Sandy Eden) to profess his love and propose to her. But when he notices her earrings, he begins to rape her and winds up choking her to death. His mother (Linda Southern) is worried and asks her police detective brother-in-law Bill (Larry Hunter) to help find him. Meanwhile, Mary has been found dead, the police suspect Arthur and the radio informs the public about the apparent murder.

In the course of his investigation, Bill finds several women who tell of Arthur's surprising rapes (since he seems an otherwise pleasant guy) while they are graphically shown in flashbacks. Each one has a different character: One is a violent rape scene, one victim (a highschool acquaintance) turns the rape into lovemaking, another (lesbian) victim is so repelled that she vomits afterwards.

Only the viewer gets to see the connection however, the glistening earrings each victim wears, and which set Arthur off. The story finally is explained to Bill by Dr. Meade (Bernard Marcel) who a couple of months ago performed a penis transplant on Arthur which may have also transplanted the former womanizing owner's fondness of golden earrings... (Wikipedia)

Sound weird enough yet?

This movie was directed by Doris Wishman, who was an early female pioneer in the smut movie trade. She also made many b-movie sexploitation movies of this type.

We normally try to show a trailer to go with our posters, but the trailer for this beast has PLENTY of nudity, but it is available on YouTube, so we will link to it here. But be warned. BOOBIES!

Midday Madness: Police Squad! - The Premiere Episode PDF Print E-mail

Police Squad! was first broadcast on the ABC television network in 1982. The series was created by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker of Airplane fame. Airplane star Leslie Nielsen came along for the ride, starring as Lieutenant Frank Drebbin. (Sound familiar yet?)

The short-lived half-hour comedy series was a spoof of the police procedurals series that had been a staple of 1960s television. Most critics felt it particularly resembled M Squad, a police show that had featured Lee Marvin, and Felony Squad, a late '60s police show.

Police Squad's opening credits resembled many a credit sequence from Quinn Martin productions, a popular producer of television detective and police dramas in the '60s and '70s. (Cannon and Barnaby Jones come to mind.) However, the opening credits always contained two humorous twists: the introduction of that week's "guest star" who was killed off immediately following their introduction, and the announcers reading of that week's episode title, which was always something completely different from what was shown on the screen.

The show was cancelled after only 6 episodes, as ABC felt the lack of a laugh track, along with the series penchant for sight gags and puns made it hard for the home audience to know when to laugh. (That tells you what television executives think of theit intended customers.)

The show later spawned the successful "Naked Gun" trilogy of films, also starring Leslie Nielsen

We hope you enjoy the premiere episode of Police Squad! "(In Color)"
