Porno Holocaust (1991)
Directed by Joe D'Amato

Starring Annj Goren Dirce Funari George Eastman Joe D'Amato Mark Shannon

A remarkably lame horror film. There isn't much to write about "Porno Holocaust, other than that it's one of a very few number of "hardcore porn" horror films and has somehow managed to gain a cult reputation in the United States as a shocking movie that has to be seen to be believed. It's often sold with the claim that it was "banned.

Pushing the idea that it's a taboo-breaking fear fest are the underground video distributors who sell the uncut version of the film in the States. But the movie is unwatchably bad. Don't spend $20 buying it, whatever you do.

A team of scientists head to a deserted island after photographs emerge showing large, mutant-like animals there. We never get to see the photos. But when they finally arrive on the island (after a myriad of meaningless sex scenes between the lady scientists and a couple of male crewmembers), a guy wearing really bad make-up shows up. Apparently he's a monster on the island who was mangled by atomic tests that happened there a while back.

If you're unlucky enough to see it in the U.S., you're almost guaranteed to be watching a terrible second or third-generation copy that some huckster sold to you, claiming the movie was "banned" in 100 countries. Well, I say it should be banned. It's one of the lamest flicks of all time.

D'Amato has a bit of a cult following for directing some other horror pics, "Emmanuelle" movies, "Trap Them and Kill Them" and the low-budget sword-and-sorcery pic "Blade Master.

Sorry, Della. I had it embedded from YouTube, but it looks as thugoh they've been asked to remove it, which is why it doesn't play any more. There must have been a copyright issue.It might mean that it is soon to appear on DVD
