Josh and I had the great pleasure of catching the gore-drenched kung fu maelstrom that is Story of Ricky (or Ricky-Oh) a few nights back, courtesy of our good friend Luke and his fantastic Cinema Ferox. For the uninitiated, CF takes place once a month at The Grosvenor pub in Stockwell where you can enjoy all manner of weird and wonderful delights from Luke's eclectic treasure trove.
Set in a totalitarian Hong Kong prison, Story of Ricky has to be one of the most comically violent films I've ever seen, with faces ripped off, spines punched in half, and a meat-grinding finale that truly has to be seen to be believed. As a firm fan of this sordid wing of cinema, I'm astonished that I never got around to seeing Story of Ricky before this night, but what a wonderful introduction!
Keep eye on the Cinema Ferox blog for more details of next month's screening of 80s trash classic, Nightbeast.
For some reason, this blog seems to get LOADS of hits for Ultraman. I love Ultraman and Ultra Q, so I'm not offended, but I don't really think there's anything for Ultra Hunters here. If I were you, I would go here: Black Sun Enjoy!
