FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE...beware yon spoilers!

Oct 14, 2008

remember me?

It's me, Stacie! You know...Final Girl. The one who sometimes updates this site. Speaking of which, I'm awfully sorry I've been a big lame. No really, I am. I know you're putting all the blame on yourself, thinking "What did I do to drive Final Girl away? Damn my penchant for appliqued sweaters! I was just trying to make a good impressionnnnnn........." and that's sweet. The truth of the matter is, however, that you've done nothing!

I'm hip deep in the big fat season finale of Ghostella's Haunted Tomb: writing, shooting, and now editing it has taken up most of my last couple of weeks. As such, this site is a little malnourished, which saddens me considering it's October and October is the most wonderful time of the year. Rest assured, however, that when all is revealed you'll be surprised, pleased, and positively wetting your pants with delight! You won't believe your eyes! Seriously, you'll be all "Oh eyes, why the eff are you lying to me?" and your eyes will be, like, "Dude, I'm just looking at what's really there!" and you'll be all "Huuuuunh?" like Scooby-Doo style. Won't that be fun? See, I've got a special guest star I still can't quite believe despite the fact that I'm watching the footage.

Is that tantalizing enough?

But! Let us stop talking about that future and start talking about another future- that is, the Final Girl Film Club and its next installment! Strait-Jacket was a rousing success last go-round, so I figure this time let's go for something at the opposite end of the spectrum! Let's go (metaphorical) balls out with the smut! Let's go for the 1974 Italian Exorcist knockoff...

The Antichrist!

Long story short: woman gets possessed. This being a 1970s Italian flick, though, that simple plot is wrapped in layer after layer of effects, gore, insanity, boobs, and gore...I assume. I mean, the poster claims it's The Supreme Shocker of All Time!, so...should be fun.

The DVD box boasts that this cut contains the fully restored "notorious goat orgy scene"...lemme tell you right now, right up front, that I have no idea what that entails. If we all hold hands, though, I'm sure we'll make it through The Antichrist together, and we'll be all the stronger for it! It's time to get sleazy up in here!

The movie: The Antichrist
The due date: Monday, November 17

If I had a nutshell, that would be in it.

I am very, very intrigued to see that season finale....

And I remember having a convo with a friend of mine about Italian horror. And seeing the trailer for "Shock"/"Beyond the Door 2", I can really see how it is effin' messed up.

Speaking of that, I stumbled onto Kinder Trauma. Funny and Disturbing at the same time. :) However, I never was traumatized by Slim Goodbody. I thought he might have been Leo Sayer when I was very young, but that's not the case.

I'm also going nuts over the fact Lisa Marie Presley named her twin girls Finley and Harper...is she a Phan? Hmm...

I think I saw this at a drive-in in 1979 along with 'I Dismember Mama'. It's hard to recall anything from that period precisely, because of all of the pot and the doritos, but I think I'm in the ballpark.
I'll have Caty netflix it :)

From what I remember, the goat's ass has a sublime Ron Jeremy like quality.

Ghidorah said...

Ouch... I was just joking please no more juicy details!!! :-)

Who are you? Why am I reading your blog?

Looks awesomely crazy. I once ran across a whole book somewhere on the European horror movie of the '60s and '70s and how they progressively went totally off the deep end into ichor-soaked technicolor soft porn. Looked like a fun book, but I didn't buy it for some reason, so I can't loan it to you which is the real reason you've been staying away I know and I'm so sorry everyone I got Stacie mad at me and now she's taking it out on the internets...

bwana said...

Well, it's not called 'the kiss of shame" for nothing.

I saw this on a double-bill (under the title "The Tempter") with "Phantasm" when I was wee. The goat orgy scene you mentioned messed me up but good for about a month.

RoaOC said...

I have not even seen this movie yet, but, but.. I totally feel compelled to rip the goat orgy scene and post it on youtube.

rob! said...

Mel Ferrer? Goat Orgies? Italian? I'M SO THERE!

Anonymous said...

I too saw this at the drive-in with Phantasm and I remember taking my small brother because he liked horror films,but when that "goat orgy scene" came on,I was like,"close yer eyes",ah,too late!

Summer said...

so stoked for the ghostella season finale! I've missed it

Money Talks said...

Wow I can't believe the number of hits your site has!

floyd barber said...

And here I was thinking I was the big lame that drove you away.Phew.

RoaOC said...

Okay, so, I couldn't help myself. So far, I've only seen the infamous goat orgy scene.. and, and, well.. it messed me up. I don't think I will ever be able to look a goat in the eye ever again. I feel kind of dirty and possibly possessed. Anywho, I posted the clip on Metacafe. Enjoy.. no, don't enjoy 'cause that would be kind of creepy.

Fabulous! I love this movie and the beastiality on display gave me nightmares for years. Hopefully I'll remember to write up some thoughts about the flick for the film club.

serial catowner said...

Now wait just a darned minute, I just watched the "notorious goat orgy" and it wasn't in The Antichrist. Or could there be two goat orgy scene movies?

In any case, the goats looked like they were a lot better at the "get-it-on" thing than any of the human male actors. Maybe 'versimilitude' is the word I'm looking for here.

Well, giallo or goats, the more the merrier, I always say.

THAT guest star? No, seriously, THAT guest star? You are the awesomest of all things that are awesome and possibly some that aren't! How will I be able to wait for Ghostella? How?

Bill Walsh said...

Yes, J.G. THAT guest star. Boggles the mind, don't it? Stacie is truly some sort of hoodoo princess with the power to cloud men's minds.
