My favorite thing about being sponsored by I Luv Video is that I have a pick shelf at both locations. I've never worked in a video store surprisingly, but I've often thought about it just so I could have a picks shelf. Now I have one and it's the greatest moment of my life. I carefully tend them and change them at least once a week.
Currently at I Luv On Guad I have:
LIFEFORCE: The insane Tobe Hooper sci-fi zombie movie. Unmissable. Turn it way up! Naked space vampire girl, London under siege by fast zombies. Patrick Stewart freaking the fuck out. Rent this.
MORE (pictured above): Start getting Mimsy Farmer fever before RIOT ON SUNSET STRIP in two weeks. Her acting in this is outstanding. The guy who plays opposite her is pretty much insufferable though.
FADE TO BLACK: Way better than you'd ever think from the box. This is where all that cinephilia leads.
THE NUDE VAMPIRE: I know, the title is rough , but this is Jean Rollin's best. Surrealist pulp dreams with antlers and weird dancing.
At the Airport store I have:
BLUE RITA: Meticulously designed Jess Franco movie. Like Franco's DANGER DIABOLIK.
MURDER A LA MOD: Brian De Palma's first feature. I thought it would be passingly interesting, with possibly a few, hard to glimpse facets of De Palma's style. Nope. It's a full on De Palma-with-a-hard-on movie with split-screen, tricky narrative strategies etc.
NABONGA: I love these cheap Jungle Girl movies. This has singer Julie London (who's really easy to look at) as a girl stranded in the jungle who's worshipped by the natives, etc. etc. I love this shit.
SOME CALL IT LOVING: Not perfect but a really odd little number about a guy (Zalman King!) who buys a Sleeping Beauty (Tisa Farrow!) from a carnival, Kinda hippified but then Richard Pryor shows up for a few minutes. The music is a little bit much but it's very interesting.
