I suppose I could blame my recent martial arts movie kick (no pun intended) on the recent and very amazing WHY DON’T YOU PLAY IN HELL? For many fans of the Exploitation genre, martial arts movies are a necessity and were probably some of the first films we were exposed to (or at least that’s how it […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Every Time I Die’s “Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space” & “Revival Mode” Videos
