"Demons of the Mind"

Demons of the Mind (1972) is a Hammer Gothic horror film, with production values a little better than was typical. For instance, they built an exterior set -- a medieval village -- and took extra pains with the special effects. As the film opens, Gillian Hills (A Clockwork Orange / Blowup / The Killer Wore Gloves) is being spirited away and drugged in a carriage. We learn that she is being torn from her lover, a gentle medical student, and being brought back to her father's house. Seems daddy has mental demons, and kills female villagers from time to time, and has decided that both his son and daughter have the same "bad blood." He has retained a shrink who has been driven from Vienna in disgrace, but who claims he can cure the family. The villagers are a superstitious lot, and think demons are responsible for the missing girls.

The young medical student arrives to try to get Hills back, as the master of the house descends further into his lunacy. Will the shrink or the medical student be able to save any of them? Hills shows breasts in two scenes, first while getting out of bed with the medical student, and then when her nurse is bleeding her. Virginia Wetherell (A Clockwork Orange / The Big Switch / Bram Stoker's Dracula) shows all three Bs as a towns person recruited to play the part of the siblings dead mother. First, she shows breasts in a sex scene early in the film, then full frontal in a lengthy dressing scene getting ready to impersonate the dead mother.

IMDB readers have this at 5.4 of 10, but with only 30 votes. The DVD is a rather nice Wide Screen transfer, and includes a full length commentary from director Peter Sykes and Virginia Wetherell. For me, it was a very enjoyable example of a Hammer film, and the exposure was a bonus. C+

    Guns (1990), the latest Andi Sidaris release, has so much exposure, I am splitting it into two nights. Tonight, the short plot summary -- Bullets, Bombs, Babes. Oh, and Eric Estrada plays the heavy in his first bad guy role, and has his first screen sex scene with girlfriend Devin DeVasquez. Devin was still a little shy, despite her stint as Heffer of the month, and only showed buns and boobs. However, she has since learned to be less shy, and they included an excerpt from her video in the special features, where you can count her pubic hair (on your fingers, without needing your toes), and get several front and rear views of ... Hmmm, after watching The Vagina Monologues last night ... her vagina.

    Tomorrow night, a whole hutch full of other Heffers from this film, as well as the detailed review.

    "The Vagina Monologues"

    The Vagina Monologues is a series of monologues performed on HBO about different aspects of Vaginas. Women, on the whole, find it liberating and empowering that vaginas can be discussed openly. Most men feel, like I did, that they are intruding, and there is very little for men to learn.

    • There are brand new volumes for Glenda Jackson, Doreen Jacobi, Claudia Jennings, Milla Jovovich and Ashley Judd.
    • In addition, all of the "J" volumes are now up to date.



    I don't think it would be unreasonable to argue that Exorcist II: the Heretic is the biggest disaster in film history. It was the long-awaited sequel to a box office smash of cult proportions. It starred big names like Richard Burton, James Earl Jones, Ned Beatty, and Louise Fletcher. It brought back Von Sydow and Linda Blair from the original. It was directed by John Boorman (Deliverance, Excalibur).

    The film looks OK, but is otherwise putrid. The acting is almost uniformly awful, verging on high camp. When the actors flubbed their lines, Boorman just left it in. The pacing is off. The storyline is incomprehensible, and neither the dialogue nor the F/X could be any cheesier.

    The Exorcist franchise was a gold mine in waiting, like Star Wars. By ignoring the spirit of the original, Boorman and his associates managed to take that brand name and completely eradicate its worth, ala New Coke.


    Other crap:

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that I inexplicably determined there might be something of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    "Sex and the City" nudity
    Several folks 'capped Sunday night's Season 5 premiere, and what a great way to start off the season! 3 of the 4 ladies showed goodies. Let's hope they keep it up! Also, a side note to the prude actresses...if we have learned nothing else this year, 2002 has proven the fact that nudity = Oscars, ratings and money! So get those clothes off Hollywood!
    • Kristin Davis and her rare breast peek, by DeafBeer.

    • Kristin Davis again (#2 is a close up look) (1, 2, 3)

    • Sarah Jessica Parker, excellent cleavage.

    • Kim Cattrall, topless of course and still looking great. (1, 2)

    • Cynthia Nixon's breast exposure. (I still think they are prosthetic boobs, but what the heck). (1, 2)

    A fellow Fun House reader asked about caps of Brazilian children's TV hostess Xuxa Meneghel (better known as just plain Xuxa), in 1982's "Love Strange Love". I managed to get ahold of a second-generation VHS copy and capped the best stuff. The collages run sequentially through Xuxa's exposure and go something like this:


    Today we take a look at Daneen Boone in the shower in "Seduction of Innocence". Later in the movie, Daneen also becomes our "Babe in Bondage".

    • Daneen Boone, topless in 1-4, tied up in links 5 and 6. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    Marta Kristen
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Best known as Judy Robinson from the "Lost in Space" TV series. Here she is topless (and doing a lesbian scenes) in the 1974 movie, "Gemini Affair". 'Caps by Señor Skin.

    Julia Mayarchuk
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)

    These were sent in and labelled "Julia", but I thing the actual spelling is Yuliya Mayarchuk. My best guess is a Tinto Brass film. Gorgeous body and fantastic nudity with all 3 B's!
