Long considered the rarest of the rare in both British horror and British sexploitation collector circles, Derek Robbin’s The Sex Victims (1973) has recently resurfaced via the BFI player service and is available to watch for free online at http://player.bfi.org.uk/film/watch-the-sex-victims-1973/
Special thanks to Darrell Buxton for making me aware of this one resurfacing (by posting about it elsewhere on the net).
Also currently up on the BFI Player is another never released on VHS or DVD British sexploitation obscurity The Over Amorous Artist (1974), under its aka title ‘Just One More Time’. Produced by the man they love to hunt David Hamilton Grant, this prototypical British sex comedy stars John Hamill as artist and househusband Alan Street, whose attempts at multi-tasking are continually being thwarted by a browned up Pakistani door to door salesman, a badly dubbed women’s libber, various suburban nymphos and ‘Rover the Dog’. Title song performed by Elvis Costello’s dad. Unintentionally funniest moment involves the dog becoming hysterical when Hamill flashes his cock toward the end, this caused me to laugh out loud in public whilst watching this on an apple iPod….which was rather embarrassing.
also available to watch for free on the BFI player (and of possible interest to readers of this blog): the Bob Godfrey sextoons 'Dear Margery Boobs' (1977) and 'Dream Doll' (1979) and the Harrison Marks glamour films 'Xcitement' and 'Vampire'.
A look at 1988’s The Eye of Satan, a mixture of British horror and British gangster film starring Cliff ‘GBH’ Twemlow. I do have this irritating habit of pronouncing his ‘Twem-a-low’ (as in the band The Tremeloes) so apologies in advance if I’ve screwed up the pronunciation anytime during this video. I do like to champion his films, even if i have trouble getting his name right!!!
A Youtube look at the 1970 Derek Ford directed film Groupie Girl starring one-movie wonder Esme Johns. Followed by (below) rare stills from the film and archive interviews with Johns and GG writer Suzanne Mercer.
Excerpt from Picnic Frolics featuring GG star Esme Johns (and Sue Bond)
I’m back on youtube, this time to take a look at the 1962 film ‘My Bare Lady’ the only British nudist camp film to explain what a pasty is and to deal with the touchy subjects of post-traumatic stress disorder and bare assed milkmen.
