Profile

This is dedicated to my friend, mentor and editor, Craig Ledbetter: the Godfather of ETC. He originated the term and it's a bit different from the more refined "Euro cult" moniker. Eurotrash has to be, first and foremost, trashy. That can mean Robbe Grillet, Polselli, Franco or D'Amato. It can be art or just plain junk. Here are my 10 favorite EUROTRASH films:

SUCCUBUS
FURY OF THE WOLFMAN [IMDB]
TRANS EUROPE EXPRESS [IMDB]
AMUCK [IMDB]
EROTIC NIGHTS OF THE LIVING DEAD (1980) - Amazon.com
L'AMANTE DEL VAMPIRO [IMDB]
ZOMBIE LAKE (1981) Amazon.com
VAMPYRES [Josť Larraz]
BLOOD AND BLACK LACE [Mario Bava]
THE HORRIBLE DR HICHCOCK [IMDB]

I like KILL BABY KILL better than BLOOD AND BLACK LACE, but it lacks that trashy edge that of scantily clad models getting offed. CRIMSON is a perfect example of EUROPEAN TRASH CINEMA and PORNO HOLOCAUST qualifies by title alone as does EUGENIE...HER JOURNEY INTO PERVERSION. ANY film by Sergio Bergonzelli is automatically ETC. --Robert Monell via http://p210.ezboard.com/fthelatarniaforumsfrm10.showMessage?topicID=55.topic [Aug 2005]
