circlekWelcome, everybody, to a new month at The Grindhouse Effect!

Let’s start out with a new article, The Sacrifice of Karin Schubert. With her cool blue eyes and golden hair, Karin Schubert had a beauty created for the camera. Her film career skyrocketed in classics such as BLUEBEARD and DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR as well as cult classics like BLACK EMANUELLE. What was the tragic secret that would make this successful mainstream star move into the world of hardcore sex films? Check out the article here.

Next up, a new wallpaper, this time based on the poster art for Lucio Fulci’s AENIGMA. Here’s a preview, check out the full size version here.

April 17th Update

New film review online, this time for Eddie Romero’s cartoonishly-fun BLACK MAMA, WHITE MAMA (1973). Pam Grier and Margaret Markov star in this enjoyable women-in-prison romp. Trailer will be added to the screening room soon. In the meantime, you can find the review here. The trailer has also been added to the Screening Room. Enjoy!

Lots of fun stuff to kick off April here at The Grindhouse Effect!

We’ve got a brand-new wallpaper based on the poster of CONFESSIONS OF LINDA LOVELACE.

Two selections from the soundtrack of the 1977 German sex comedy JOY OF FLYING.

We take another look at the 1974 TV film WONDER WOMAN starring Cathy Lee Crosby.

I’ve gotten a few messages asking when I’ll be doing more straightforward sex film reviews. Well, stay tuned in the coming weeks for reviews of some super sordid sexy cinema!

I’ve decided to make a little change and do two wallpapers a month instead of just one! So, the latest wallpaper, inspired by the Italian poster for DEAR DEAD DELILAH (1972). Here’s a preview, and you can download the full version in our Wallpapers section.


March 17th Update

Today’s update is a two-fer…

batwomanupdateIn the Screening Room, check out the trailer for the delightfully horrid Batman ripoff THE WILD WORLD OF BATWOMAN. I’ve also republished my review of the film (which originally appeared on the former BBandBC Podcast website) in the Film Reviews section.

Enjoy! Look for another update sometime between tomorrow and Wednesday (depending on life stuff, you know.)
