Recommended Posts

Je poste ça pour info, ça donne idée de la programmation de festival bis dans des coins d'europe moins réputés.



The Shockproof Film Festival (Festival otrlého diváka) returns to Kino Aero on Tuesday, February 19th, offering up another batch of movies focussed on sex, violence and deeply inappropriate behavior.


19th February 2008 – 18:00


(Ó! Domovní profi wrestling / Â! Ikkenya puroresu)

Japan, 2004, directed by Naoki Kubo, Kenji Tanigaki

Japanese with English subtitles, 100 min, 35 mm

Cinema Strikes Back! Total mayhem! A non-stop series of deranged death matches! The legendary Japanese wrestler Shinya Hashimoto – King of Beasts - goes to the zombie castle in order to save his wife and get a new house.


19th February 2008 – 20:30


(Rambo: Do pekla a zp?t)

USA, 2008, directed by Sylvester Stallone

English with Czech subtitles, 100 min, 35 mm

People are scared of monsters but monsters are scared of John Rambo. And he’s back, ready to show those burmese military who’s got the licence for total carnage. This time Sylvester Stallone not only starred in but also scripted and directed.


20th February 2008 – 18:00


CSSR, USSR, 1982, directed by Zden?k Podskalský

Czech, 78 min, 35 mm

An absurd offspring of the mandatory friendship between communist countries - Czechoslovakia and Kazakhstan (yes, the home of Borat). But instead of a timid socialistic entertainment the regime got a highly subversive phantasmagoric farce, comparable with Monty Python’s „Life of Brian“.


20th February 2008 – 20:00


(Demence 13)

USA, 1963, directed by Francis Ford Coppola

English with Czech translation, 76 min, DVD

Juvenile effort by one of the best film directors in the world – Francis Ford Coppola. A mixture of traditional gothic horror with elements of the slasher sub-genre. An axe-wielding maniac loose in the vicinity of an Irish castle.


20th February 2008 – 21:45


(Krvavá hostina)

USA, 1963, directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis

English with Czech translation, 67 min, DVD

The first gore-film ever! A true classic! As Mr. Lewis himself have put it: „It was the first picture of its type. I’ve often compared it with a Walt Whitman poem – it’s no good but it’s the first of its type.“


21st February 2008 – 18:00


(El Santo bojuje o Drákul?v poklad / Santo en el tesoro de Drácula)

Mexico, 1968, directed by René Cardonna

Spanish with Czech translation, 81 min, DVD

El Santo for the second time at our festival. This time he travels back in time to the 19th century to wrestle it out with count Dracula himself. One of the most hilarious El Santo pictures, complete with psychedelic special effects.


21st February 2008 – 20:30



Mexico, 1970, directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky

Spanish with Czech subtitles, 125 min, 35mm

The Ultimate Psychedelic Spaghetti Western. The first of so-called "midnight movies". Jodorowsky had a theory that film can effect the human mind in the same way as LSD and El Topo was to be his proof. John Lennon was impressed and backed its distribution.


22nd February 2008 – 18:00


(Hv?zdná srážka)

Italy, USA, 1978, directed by Luigi Cozzi

French with Czech translation, 85 min, 35 mm

David Hasselhoff, Caroline Munro and Christopher Plummer in a Flash-Gordonesque space adventure. One of the worst films ever. A chef-d’oeuvre of cheesiness. A must see for anyone with the taste for the extraordinary.


22nd February 2008 – 20:30


(?erné ovce)

New Zealand, 2006, directed by Jonathan King

English with Czech subtitles, 87 min, DVD

Get ready for the Violence of the Lambs! An experiment in genetic engineering turns harmless sheep into blood-thirsty killers. The first feature film of New Zealand director Jonathan King is often beeing compared with the early works of fellow countryman Peter Jackson, but it firmly stands on its own.


22nd February 2008 – 22:30


(Kýbl krve)

USA, 1959, directed by Roger Corman

silent with jukebox music selected by the audience, 66 min, DVD

A pitch black comedy about a group of "far out" beatniks and a busboy from the local Bohemian café who has rather bizarre artistic aspirations. This time the audience can pick its own musical score to accompany this B-cult favourite!


23rd February 2008 – 17:00


Czech Republic, directed by Mark Ther, Eva Ji?i?ka, Ond?ej Brody, Radim Labuda, Viktor Frešo, Eugenio Percossi, Constantin Hartenstein, Mark Ther

Czech, 90 min, DVD

"After the cunt your dick will fall off. " In what direction is the Czech videoart crawling? One thing is certain - it’s doing so with no underwear. Radical tendencies in contemporary Czech videoart. Mark Ther and company with their etheric work.


23rd February 2008 – 19:30



France, 1975,

directed by Walerian Borowczyk

French with Czech translation, 95 min, 35mm

The notorious fairy tale still packs a punch. Borowczyk’s erotic adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Zoophilia, pederasty among clergymen, surreal horror and explicit sleaze. A film that is interesting for deviants and chaste intellectuals as well.


23rd February 2008 – 21:30


Pink films (pinku eiga) are a type of Japanese soft-core pornographic theatrical films, that first appeared in the early 1960s. Often more socially-engaged and aesthetically well-crafted than simple pornography. The double feature consists of the following two films:



(Sexuální mašina: Sezona obscenit / Sex mash?n: Hiwai na kisetsu / Himo no Hiroshi)

Japan, 2005, directed by Yûji Tajiri

Japanese with English subtitles, 64 min, 35 mm

The film presents a reversed view at gender roles in erotic movies. This time the men are the object. But don’t expect any radical feminist aspirations, this is a pinku film full of surprises and playful irony.



(Nádherný život Sa?iko Hanai / Hanai Sa?iko no karei na šógai)

Japan, 2003, directed by Mitsuru Meike

Japanese with English subtitles, 91 minut, 35 mm

Every intellectual’s wet dream. A simple-minded prostitute is accidentally shot in the forehead and the bullet stuck in her cerebral cortex makes her a genius. Much of the fun derives from the incongruous juxtaposition of raw sexuality with intellectual pretentiousness.


23rd February 2008 – 00:30


(Hluboké hrdlo)

USA, 1972, directed by Gerard Damiano

English with French subtitles, 61 min, 35 mm

Made for only 23 000 dollars Deep Throat has grossed over 5 million just in the first year after its release. The censors have passed this heterosexual hard-core movie because going to porn theatres was considered "chic" in America at the time.


24th February 2008 – 17:30


The double feature consists of the following two films:



(Glen, nebo Glenda)

USA, 1953, directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr.

English with French subtitles, Czech translation, 68 minut, 35mm

Ed Wood’s hallucinatory take on transvestitism and transsexuality. The director himself as Glen/Glenda, Bela Lugosi as the omniscient scientist: “Beware! Beware of the big green dragon that sits on your doorstep. He eats little boys... Puppy dog tails, and bid fat snails... Beware... Take care... Beware!”



(Atomová nev?sta)

USA, 1955, directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr.

English with French subtitles, Czech translation, 68 minut, 35mm

Ed Wood’s more traditional horror movie. A tribute to classical Universal horrors of the 1930s. From the mind of a mad scientist comes a weird world of terror. It’s a world you can’t imagine. Starring Bela Lugosi and Tor Johnson.


24th February 2008 – 20:00


(Plán 9 z vn?jšího vesmíru)

USA, 1959, directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr.

English with French subtitles, Czech translation, 79 min, 35 mm

Ed Wood’s visionary masterpiece with revolutionary editing, story, acting, special effects and everything else. Starring the most nightmarish cast ever: Bela Lugosi, the seductive Vampira and Tor Johnson as the walking dead.




Sacré programme cette année. Dommage que Black Sheep soit en DVD.

Ca a commencé ce soir, et c'était puissant. Super public pour le dernier Rambo, ça faisait plaisir. Des cris ulfesques, des rires et des applaudissements. Sinon la projo du tres beau et tres Z "Oh My Zombie Mermaid" était orgasmique.


Et le trailer du festoche, qui donne le ton :

Programme de cette annee



Presenting Film (Non) Aesthetics



10th - 15th February 2009

cinema Aero, Biskupcova 31, Prague, Czech Republic



Feature films


Santo Versus the Vampire Women (El Santo vs. las mujeres vampiro)

Mexico, 1962, directed by Alfonso Corona Blake

Spanish with Czech gender-relevant dubbing, 81 min, VHS



France, Canada, 2008, directed by Pascal Laugier

French with English and Czech subtitles, 97 min, 35 mm


Cool car je l'ai pas vu.


Brain Damage

USA, 1988, directed by Frank Henenlotter

French with Czech translation, 84 min, 35 mm


Eaten Alive

USA, 1977, directed by Tobe Hooper

French with Czech translation, 91 min, 35 mm


Basket Case

USA, 1982, directed by Frank Henenlotter

English with Czech translation, 91 min, DVD


Visitor Q

Japan, 2001, directed by Takashi Miike

Japanese with English and Czech subtitles, 84 min, Beta


Antropophagus: The Grim Reaper

Italy, USA, 1980, directed by Joe D’Amato

French with Czech translation, 90 min, 35 mm



USA, 1982, directed by John Wintergate

English with Czech subtitles, 99 min, DVD


End of the Wicked

Nigeria, 1999, directed by Teco Benson

Nigerian English with Czech translation, 100 min (including commercials), VCD


An example of the flourishing African film industry, this particular movie deals with black magic and witchcraft. Beelzebub the Great presides over a curious black mass. Lecherous old bag Lady Destroyer tortures her son and steals the womb of her daughter. Has to be seen to be believed. Teco Benson is considered to be one of the more able directors, but African horrors have their specifics. Usually shot and finished in six days and distributed on VCD (video-cd), their sound and image quality is quite appalling, the special effects are crude, dialogue incongruous, yet they are extremely popular and commercially successful. One of the reason is their courage in breaking the still existing taboos in African cinema: crime, drugs, prostitution, witchcraft, political corruption, unmarital sex and even religion.



Late Bloomer

Japan, 2004, directed by Gô Shibata

Japanese with English and Czech subtitles, 83 min, 35 mm


Films about handicapped people are generally idealistic and naively optimistic. Not in this case. The wheelchair bound protagonist is not the classical ethical superman full of hope and determination, but a common man (played not by some household name, but by a handicapped actor) with natural needs and desires, full of anger and pain that lead him to murder. The unsettling quality of the story is punctuated by its agressive visual style, reminiscent of the works of Shinya Tsukamoto (Tetsuo, A Snake of June, Vital). A truly radical film that stands outside the trash genre structures.


YEAH !!!


Nekromantik 2 (Nekromantik 2: Die Rückkehr der liebenden Toten)

Germany, 1991, directed by Jörg Buttgereit

German with Czech subtitles, 104 min, 16mm


Tokyo Gore Police

(Tokyo Gore Police / Tôkjô zankoku keisatsu)

Japan, 2008, directed by Yoshihiro Nishimura

Japanese with English subtitles and Czech translation, 110 min, DVD


The Butcher

South Korea, 2007, directed by Kim Jin-won

Korean with English subtitles and Czech translation, 76 min, Beta


A man and a woman wake up together with two other people tied up in an empty swinery. Here they are about to become unwilling protagonists of a “snuff film” starring a devious sadistic maniac, hiding his face under a pig’s head. This shocking Korean film incorporates two major tendencies of contemporary western horror production – realism of the likes of The Blair Witch Project and the aesthetics of the so-called “torture porn” films. It is an ultimate test of viewers endurance.


The Torture Chamber of Dr. Sadism (Die Schlangengrube und das Pendel)

West Germany, 1967, directed by Harald Reinl

German with Czech subtitles, 85 minut, 35mm


Unbelievable! Until you see it with your own eyes! German genre routinist Harald Reinl carved his place in history by directing a series of films about Winnetou and his white brother Old Shatterhand. This was his attempt to copy the success of Hammer gothic horrors. The main attraction of this hillariously naive picture is its “stellar” cast. Alongside Lex Barker and Karin Dor (Old Shatterhand and Ribanna) the film can boast the presence of the icon of British horrors – His Demonic Highness Christopher Lee himself.


Thriller: They Call Her One Eye (Thriller – drsný film / Thriller - en grym film)

Sweden, 1974, directed by Bo Arne Vibenius

Swedish with English subtitles and Czech translation, 104 min, DVD


Short films – one for each day



USA, 1990, directed by Richard Kern

English, 6 min, DVD


Audrey Rose is a brave girl who wants to look good. Capt. Kirk has a piercing habit. AK-47 is a photogenic assault rifle. And New York scandalist Richard Kern - one of the Shockproof favourites – has an eye for everything that is seemingly unsociable.


Operator: Part One

Czech Republic, 2007, directed by Michal Griga

Czech, 17 min, DVD


“First I will brutally pausalize you and then make you addicted to your cellphones!” Agent Jam Strawberry and his sidekick Bred Koorkasson meet their famous Nemesis. A bloody story from the stone age of mobile communication or: Igor is an idiot.


Can You Keep It Up With This, That And The Other For A Week?

Great Britain, 2004, directed by Jan Manthey

English with Czech subtitles, 16 min, DVD


A loving homage to Stanley Long’s saucy British comedies from the 1970s by the London-based low budget independents KINOKARNO. A horny window cleaner. Professor Gaylord and his Sex Ray. An infatuated Ape. A sexual cadger’s dream come true. Featuring Vic Pratt, BFI National Archive curator.


Cult of the Planet of the Apes

Great Britain, 1991, directed by Jan Manthey

English with Czech subtitles, 10 min, DVD


Another short by the London-based KINOKARNO. Roddy is a young man obsessed with Planet of the Apes. Can he survive in the rough environment of the city? Won’t he lose his head? And is he the only one of his kind?




Czech Republic, 2008, directed by Jan Michelfeit

no dialogue, 10 min, DVD


A short film about a journey to happiness and self-awareness, about scrambled eggs and the smell of rubber. A young programmer finds love in his heart. Love for “Horalkas”.


Es gibt Reis!

Czech Republic, 2007, directed by Pavel Lukáš

German, 2 min, DVD


September 1938. Sudeten Germans are impatiently waiting for Adolf Hitler to speak. But in Reichstag the Führer succumbs to an unexpected whim.

Première belle soirée hier avec une programmation des plus WTF :


"El Santo contre les femmes vampires"

suivi du court "Pierce" de Richard Kern

et enfin pour compléter gentiment... "Martyrs" x 12 000 000


Je peux vous dire que le public venu s'éclater est passé d'un extrême à l'autre : ça se gaussait bien en buvant binouze sur binouze devant El Santo, pour finir sur un silence de mort général. Ils sont complètement fous d'avoir ouvert le festival avec le film de Laugier (sur lequel je reviendrai je pense plus tard)
