TTF13 - HORROR MOVIE PICKS OF THE WEEK

JEREMIAH'S PICK - 'MASSAGE PARLOR MURDERS' (1973)

"A violent and hilarious detective romp that's two parts giallo and one part "Starsky and Hutch. My personal favorite buddy-cop movie, and one of the best releases from Vinegar Syndrome"

A deranged and ferocious killer terrorizes the red light district of Times Square in New York City by savagely bumping off the lovely young ladies who work at massage parlors located throughout the area. It's up to grouchy veteran detective Rizotti and his more cheerful younger partner O'Mara to figure out the maniac's identity and apprehend the fiend before he strikes again.

Release Date September, 1973 (USA)

Director: Chester Fox, Alex Stevens

Starring: George Spencer, John Moser, Sandra Peabody

Distributed on Blu-Ray / DVD by Vinegar Syndrome


DAVID'S PICK - 'THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR' (2016)

"Although the franchise has basically turned into action flicks with horror elements, it feels like it finally found it's niche. One of the biggest surprises of the year for me, thus far"

It's been two years since Leo Barnes stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan, his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn…or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.


JASMINE'S PICK - 'OVER YOUR DEAD BODY' (2014)

"Takashi Miike never ceases to surprise with his beautifully disturbing masterpieces. Also great performances by Ichikawa Ebizo and Shibasaki Ko"

Fiction begins to bleed into reality for actors (Ebizo Ichikawa, Ko Shibasaki, Hideaki Ito) as they rehearse a stage production of a classic Japanese ghost story

SARAH'S PICK - 'THE OFFSPRING' (2009)

"i love a good cannibal movie, and "The Offspring" is one of them; brutal and beautiful, just how I like it!"

Surviving members of a cannibal clan -- long-thought wiped out -- re-emerge to feast on residents of a peaceful Maine community.
