House (1977, aka - Hausu)

A Japanese high school girl and her six adorable friends go to the country to spend the summer vacation with the girl's aunt. However, the aunt is actually a ghost, and the house itself is a demon that has a taste for virgins. The girls begin to disappear, one-by one. Although this may seem like the premise for a routine horror film, this is anything but. The movie is shot with lurid, unnatural colors, and the tone is that of a peppy after-school film. The characters are chipper and very likable. However, the violence is surprisely brutal -- but only in a cheerful sort of way. It's like no other film I've seen.

Kliou the Tiger + Legong, Dance of the Virgins (1936/1935)

A double-feature of rare early Asian films -- two of the last silent films ever produced. Kliou concerns the efforts of a community -- one young man in particular -- to hunt down a man-eating tiger who seems to have a vendetta against their village. Legong tells the story of an ill-fated young maiden and her doomed love for a young man. It was filmed in the rare Two-Strip Technicolor process. While both of these films offer a glimpse into fascinating cultures quite different from western norms, the main reason these films were produced was the plethora of young, topless, Asian cuties. There is an abundance of nudity featuring lovely young woman, quite a thrill for the post-code, western filmgoers.
