Paul Zaza - Curtains

In my long stretch of non-posting, something pretty awesome turned up on The Terror Trap. Hidden in a 2 page Paul Zaza interview is the complete soundtrack from the 1983 Canadian classic Curtains. It can be found on the right side here. It's only streaming audio, but that can be easily saved if you've got IDM, or any other streaming audio downloading program.

  1. Audra
  2. Skate...For Your Life
  3. Amanda's Nightmare
  4. Voices in Snow
  5. Christie & The Doll
  6. Stryker's Studio
  7. Echoes
  8. The Hag, Unmasked?
  9. Caught
  10. Cold and Unknown
  11. The Prophouse/The Revelation

Curtains, which I actually watched for the first time today, is a pretty great slasher featuring John Vernon and Lynne Griffin. As a massive fan of both Strange Brew and Black Christmas I got a tremendous kick out of seeing Lynne here. Despite Curtains having some great stalking/death sequences and very solid acting and some nice twists along the way it's one of the few remaining quality early 80s slashers that's missing even a decent DVD release. It has been put out on DVD but apparently with a VHS transfer along with 3 shit recent movies nobody has ever heard of on a DVD set called The Midnight Horror Collection: Bloody Slashers. I've heard people have found that DVD at Wal-Mart in the dreaded $5 bin, but not me. I can't look through that thing for more than 2 minutes before I've knocked 4 copies of Howard the Duck on the floor or having some dude wander over and start throwing titles I've already looked at back to my side of the bin. It's a nightmare, and hardly worth the effort. Now if Synapse could go ahead and put this bastard out on a nicely loaded Blu-ray like The Dorm That Dripped Blood, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Anyway, if you go through the interview on this page there is also music from My Bloody Valentine, Murder by Decree, Prom Night 1, 3, and 4.

Ultraman Jazz

This is the very out of print Ultraman Jazz. This is kind of like Ultraman meets...uh... the opening theme from The Cosby Show? Sorry, I don't listen to jazz, that's the best jazz reference you're getting from me. There's an even out of printer Vol. 2 out there, if I can find it I'll post it here.

Someone recommended I post some Kaiju soundtracks, so I'll dig some out from the vaults and get them up soon. Good timing actually, I need to familiarize myself with some of the classic Kaiju themes so I can rework them with my giant monster themed new wave band Kaijugoogoo.

I'm trying out MirrorCreator for the links, seemed to upload quickly and you get a shitload of download options.

1. Ultraman-No-Uta
2. Ultraseven-No-Uta
3. Tokusoutai-No-Uta
4. Ultraman Leo
5. Ultra Q
6. MAT Team-No-Uta
7. Susume! Ultraman
8. Kaettekita-Ultraman
9. Ultraman-No-Uta(reprise)

Get Ultra

Stop by our refreshment center...

I thought some of you guys might not have seen this yet and might get a kick out of it. It starts as a cute Let's All Go To The Lobby style ad, but around 1:28 into it the JujyFruit gets iced and everything goes batshit and gets real terrifying like. Kind of like the end of Brazil and Mulholland Drive, only it's a cartoon with anthropomorphic hot dogs and popcorn and shit.

Hobo With A Shotgun Invading Your Home Today!

I thought I'd remind everyone that Jason Eisener's Hobo With A Shotgun was released for purchasing and owning today. Checking around a lot of people love this thing, but a lot of people seem to really hate it. I'm not seeing any middle ground for this one. No one seems to think it was just alright. Me, I loved it. I've seen it 3 times now and it keeps getting funnier every time I see it. Rutger Hauer just kills it in this movie and I'm pretty sure I'm in love with Molly Dunsworth.

Not only is the movie totally bananas, the blu-ray and DVD are filled with highly watchable features. I don't spend much time with extra features usually, but I've had my blu-ray going for about 4 hours now and there's still a ton of stuff to get through. The making of documentary is a beauty. Watching the director of a movie holding a camera, hanging off the back of a moving pickup while another guy holds him by the back of his shirt is one of the best things I've ever seen. Not just in a documentary, I mean ever.

The tremendously loaded Blu-ray and 2-disc DVD are actually on sale this week at Best Buy for $17.99, and if you take a moment to print this coupon, out you can have it for $13. It's certainly not a movie everyone is going to love, but at this price immediately after its release I highly recommend a purchase. I have no affiliation with Hobo or with Best Buy, just wanting to save some potential Hobo purchasers some money.

Side note: Hobo With A Shotgun has made me realize my next car has to be a Bricklin. Sure the car is considered to be one of the worst ever made, but how fucking cool are these things:

Hey, they wrecked the one in the movie, maybe they'll sell it to me cheap.
