Hitch-Hike - aka Autostop rosso sangue. Franco Nero and Corinne Clery are a not very happy couple on vacation with their car and caravan. While on the road, they pick up a hitchhiker (David Hess) ho turns out to be a dangerous criminal who wants to escape to Mexico. He makes a deal with the couple that if they take him to the border, the man (a journalist) can write a book on him and the criminal will pay him a large amount of money for it. Being held hostage, the couple has to abide, and in the meantime they have to try and warn the police, shake off the criminal partners of their passenger and stay alive. A crime thriller like this is something I usualy don't watch, but I gave it a chance because it had positive reviews and it is Italian. The latter is noticeable by some violent scenes and by the excellent music by Morricone. Acting is good, especially by Nero and Hess. Overall I didn't like it as much as I like giallos or horrors, but it is a good film, so if you like Italo cinema or are into crimethrillers, give it a chance.

Beach Babes From Beyond - soft erotic sexploitation mixed with some scifi, by the ever greasy David DeCoteau. The porn actress Roxanne Blaze (who looks like a sweetheart in this one) is Xena, a galactic girl who is home alone when her friends Luna and Sola (oh, how inventive!) persuade her to take a ride in the spaceship in the garage. Of course they crashland on earth where they meet three (oh, how coincidental!) beachboys who are lovestruck on this trio from space. Lots and lots of nonsensical scenes in which you don't see anything else than a beach full of halfnaked people dancing on a terrible song, mixed with some sexscenes (all three of them get to do their part of course) amnd then we have some scenes left for the storyline. You might guess by now that that line is a very thin one. There are some names in the cast, like Joe Estevez, who does his best to make the other actors look like amateurs and he almost succeeds, and there is Linnea Quigley, who does not take her clothes off for a change. There are some other people who are just famous because they have a famous brother, like Don Swayze and Joey Travolta. Acting, music, storyline: it is all bad and/or ridiculous, but that and all the (sometimes lovely and sometimes cheesy) nakedness make this a cult classic. Recommended for bad moviefans.

100 Bloody Acres - another funny horrorccomedy from Australia. Two brothers in the outback, Lindsay and Reggie Morgan, run a farm on which they produce fertilizer. They have a "secret ingredient" which they are running out of, so they need new supply. Reggie finds a dead body on the side of the road so he takes it with him, but then a better opportunity arises: a group of youngsters on their way to a festival have their car broken down, so Reggie offers them a ride. They end up on the farm while one of them is hoping he can ask his girlfriend to marry him, while she has had a little adventure with the third person in the group, a guy who took acid while they were still on he road: he is miles high now. Gore is not the main ingredient but there is enough of it to entertain the average horrorfan. It usually is not very scary but there is quite a shocking scene near the end of the movie involving Lindsay Morgan doing something quite unexpected. The interpersonal drama was a bit over the top at times, but on the other end it added some depth to the characters which is good. I had good fun and laughed out loud quite a few times, so I think this movie did what it aimed for. Recommended.
