    Nice list E-Norm! I searched for years for "Make Then Die Slowly." Finally found it under the original title of "Cannibal Ferox." Growing up, I would always see the movie poster on Fridays in The Denver Post (I delivered it as a teen). I was captivated by the banner "Banned in 31 Countries!"--but not in the US! It did more than anything to make me a fan of the movies long before I ever really started watching them religiously!

    I thought it was a shit movie, but I wouldn't take it out of my collection for anything!

    Ironically, the reason is was banned (and the actual # of countries is not known) was not for any of the scenes of torture and cannibalism, but for the actual cruelty to real animals in the movie.

    I much prefer the old Universal classics these days, or the Poe/Price/Corman classics. Some of the Italian masters still work for me. Argento I mentioned, Bava I also like.

    sk
    It's ok frik. I have tons more and I can defintely understand the cannibal thing. I was interested maybe 10 years ago when DVDs came out and that lasted a couple months and haven't seen ones for years, but I stick by saying Zombie Holocauset YOU HAVE TO SEE. And as for Jungle Holocaust...literally think of it as a Tarzan film with some blood lol. It's really not bad, just interesting to see a guy try to survive a bunch of backward savages (that's so politically incorrect of me).I don't like torture films myself (I've never seen any of the "Saw" movies), but I mentioned The Torturer only because I was so surprised Bava would acually make a film like that. I have it but only watched 20 minutes of it and it's truly sick. It's sorta like that sick Indy film Scrapbook, but 10X worse.
    But even though you say you don't like slashers, you should really check out Criminally Insane and A Night to Dismember (both only about 60 minutes). They're so absurd you'll laugh out loud through both of them.
    Well, Bava you said you liked...maybe you should try his newer ones. Have you ever seen his Macabre? LOL another silly film especially at the end and how they say "true story" lmao. It's more of an insane love story that supposedly based on a true story that happened in the 1970's in Loiusina.
    Argento is fantastic, much more brilliant colors and light used in
    his movies than Fulci's, and they just looked much more professional. Take a look at Sleepless and Tenebre...the most violent horror films I've ever seen.
    You sound like an Italian Giallo fan to me frik (the word Italians use for "Yellow"..I would figure you'd know that frick, just others might not). I can't do it now but if you're interested, I'll go through my vast collection and give you some titles. I can tell you some very good ones...The Killer Inside Me, My Dear Killer, The Black Tarantula, What Ever Happened to Solange?, A Lizard in a Woman's Skin, What Ever Happened to Mrs Ward (I think that's kow you spell ward), The Night Evelyn Came out of The Grave (a favorite of mine, some people hate it though).....and on and on. Or if you want more rare Italian films, let me know. Finally, see Cannibal Man. It's NOT a cannibal film like you're thinking. It's about a story about a guy driven to madness by comitting obscene murder. Just remind me if you're interested or send me a PM if I forget (which I probably will).

    Yeah, I always thought that was such an adsurd irony. We just can't have animals killed as those savages have to do to live,
    oh no, but it's perfectly ok to tear out the insides of people and eat them. This PC nonsense drives me up the wall!!!!
    LOL you think it's shit? That's the one where the guy is under the table and a native slices the top of his head off and starts eating his brain lmao. I have to laugh because I know it was just red colored banasas, not really his brain (of course).
    But other decent ones when I was into those films, are Trap Them and Kill Them (more of a cannibal/porn film if that makes sense), Jungle Holocaust (one of the best by far), Zombie Holocaust (THE best and highly recommended if you're into those type films...constant action), Cannibal Holocaust, and there was one that took place in a city that had cannibal in the title which I have but can't recall the title. There's another one where these ape-like things jump out of an airplane in Italy and run amok killing dancers and shit. LOL (But I think they were actually zombie-like cretures who who were messed up with Italian experiments on them). City is also in the title but can't think of it.
    And if you're interested in zombie films, one of the best is Let Sleeping Corpses Lie and the French made Grapes of Death. Not too bloody, but just GOOD.
    I'm you horror film expert you guys. You want recommendations then just ask ol' Normity (or "E-Norm lol"), literally about anything....cannibals, zombies, slashers, you name it, I got it.

    I'm not into cannibal films--it was just that one movie since I watched it every Friday in the DP. I remember a spanish film called (English title) Murders in the Rue Morgue starring the great spanish B-movie actor Paul Naschy in which some of the rats used for the film caught fire during the climatic scene and started scampering all over the set. The cameras just kept on rolling, catching the rats in their final, blazing glory. Cruel, yes, but unintentional. It added a lot to the scene as Naschy tried to dodge them on his way to rescue the heroine. 1972 I belive that was. Aaaaah, Pre-code days. It was banned for a long time because of that scene; most prints have that scene excised.

    I've never been a fan of Naschy, but I do have a couple of his films. And like I said the cannibal movie fad I was in maybe 10 years ago, was just that: a fade. You can only watch so many without being turned off by them evetually. Hell they're all the same. But I still insist, you must see the ones I mentioned!!...Jungle Holocaust and Zombie Holocause. Just give them a try. It's not all blood and guts, especially Jungle Holocaust. It's a very interesting film about a guy in a plane crash who ends up being captured by savages. The enire movie is about how he tries to escape...I really like it. But Eaten Alive is in the same type films as Cannibal Holocaust, Make Them Die Slowly and Trap them and Kill Them. But it's pretty good too, but can't compare to the ones I want to see you watch. I promise you'll be pleasantly surprised.
    BTW, what name do I call you by??

    Squire. That's my name.

    For a while, I'd search the "Introduction" thread to get people's names, but it's too long to do that anymore. Jungle Holocaust and Zombie Holocaust have been on my must watch list for awhil now, I just haven't had the time. Eaten Alive was a possibility because it was Tobe Hooper, but I decided not watch it.

    Yeah, but there's Eaten Alive by Hooper and the inferior Eaten Alive cannibal flick. I liked the Hooper film so much I bought the anniverary edition! It's great.

    Warning: The cover does not get LESS creepy when you view the larger version!!! I think Caniglia was easily THE BEST choice for someone to create art for a book like The Exorcist!!!

    Caniglia has turned in all of the color interior artwork, and he really went overboard. The original plan was 6 pieces, but there's definitely more than that here. I'm going to break the budget a bit to include ALL of them.

    The book is being designed now -- it took forever to get the final files from the trade publisher because they like to drag their feet on these things -- but we're moving along at a good clip now.

    Also, a special unannounced bonus for the Lettered Edition customers: there will be entirely different artwork on the Lettered Edition's DJ.

    I want this one! It will be my second The Exorcist limited, except my first one is a lettered from Gauntlet. I keep wondering how much it's worth...

    I hope it's bigger than my lettered. It's nice but back then I think they were purposely making books smaller for financial reasons, but they still are not including slipcases for limiteds which I really don't like! It seems only King's Way Press is but the materials are not high quality and I don't think I'll be buying anymore of them (Dracula is the perfect example). Sorry Zach if you see this, but mine was a mess like many others were here.

    Every Lonely Road Books title is slipcased or traycased. Check out the photos on the website for some samples:

    http://www.lonelyroadbooks.com/photosandart.html

    The Exorcist: The 40th Anniversary Revised Limited Edition will have a 7 X 10 trim size. I don't have the final page count because we're still working on the design, but I'll post it when I do if I remember. The text should be VERY readable, though, if you have any concerns about that. These editions are meant to be read (if you want to!).
