Episode 10 – Cinema Fantastica – The Hills Have Eyes (1977) vs Alucarda (1977)

Episode 9 – We Do Our Own Stunts – The Golden Lotus (1974)

On this episode of Cinema Smorgasbord we return to WE DO OUR OWN STUNTS: THE WORK OF JACKIE CHAN, and this time we're looking at a true oddity. Based on a legendary erotic novel from the early 1600s, this film features no martial arts, but still includes plenty of action. It's THE GOLDEN LOTUS, a Shaw Brothers production featuring lots of (uncomfortable) sex, murder, intrigue and a very young Jackie Chan in his kinda sorta first role. Read More
