Couple of imports this go around, one Italian the other Russian. The second feature most infamously for Francis Ford Coppola’s re-editing and inserting a monster fight into Nebo zovyot, whose monsters are so hilarious phallic in a TAb-A goes into Slot-B sense that one can only watch and boggle.

I could argue which is Leone’s best, this or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. But, lets just sit back and enjoy the art of Frank McCarthy instead.

Don’t you just love the twisted artwork in these ads? First up we have the extremely twisted, and yet hauntingly beautiful tale of a mad surgeon whose necrophiliac sexual proclivities accidentally gets his wife killed. Not to fear, he has a plan to bring her back — and all he needs is a lot of blood from an unwilling donor. Enter wife number two … And then, Central Nebraska, welcome to the wacky world and demented genius of Jesus Franco, whose awful Dr. Orlof is also on a kidnapping binge for unwilling donors to provide skin-grafts for his disfigured daughter.

Okay, now I know that last ad technically isn’t a double-feature but it still cracks me all the hell up. Inspired by Elliot Silverstein’s A Man Called Horse, which saw Richard Harris forcibly going native and suspended on a couple of meat-hooks through his chest, Umberto Lenzi’s unofficial remake finds another Brit well off the beaten path of civilization, deep in the jungles of Thailand, where he is captured by some natives who go all Mondo Cane on his ass. Yeah, we’ve got Cannibal Cinema Ground Zero, here, folks, complete with sadistic tribal rituals, wholesale animal slaughter, and who the hell knows what else will be permanently scarred into you retinas. And with its box-office success, for the next decade, Lenzi and fellow Italian director Ruggero Deodato would continually march off into the jungle to try and one up each other by heaping one atrocity on top of the other in effort to make the audience taste their popcorn twice. And you can see it all if you’re over 18 — with proof, pilgrim.
