Title: DUEL IN THE ECLIPSE
Post by: HEX on November 30, 2005, 08:15:55 AM
any one ever seen DUEL IN THE ECLIPSE? it is a very obscure spag. JERKSI was selling it not to long ago, and if he resurfaces it i definatley want to get it.

JERKSI says the film uses the zoom lens like no other film before it and after it.


virtually nobody ever bids on the film(which is probably the reason why he has stopped selling it)

some guy got it for a dollar one. so even if its crap who cares? u wasted a dollar.

I've only seen a trailer and it looks a bit mad like From Dusk Till Dawn when an eclipse of the sun brings back to life the vampires-only here you get a load of barmy mexicans and a hero(?) wearing tiger or leopard skins if my memory doen't fail me?

Before i became aware of cheap DVDr's on Ebay i picked up a handful of DVDr's from the Trash Palace in the USA and on each of these they include one or two trailers from other SW's i guess to sell more DVDr's.When i last looked at the Trash Palace website,they seemed to have hugely honed down their SW's in favour of Euro horror,thrillers and porn.

funny how in the states sw's are still seen as low forms of entertainment(even seen as bad as porno). is it like that in europe as well?

Until the current ITV4 season,SW's were like something out of The Land That Time Forgot-extinct on TV and theatres.On sattelite TV it would appear that porn has never been more popular or socially acceptable .

to true. porn has been very excepted now a days, however it is still seemed as rather taboo compared to violence(which the public has no problem with).
and sw's are in the land that time forgot as well but when they are out there in the public eye(which is rare)
they are ignored or shunned.


u just brought up one of the more interesting topics i have come to notice latly.
sex is obviously a natural thing between a man and a women(and for those of u who are experimental, it is a natural way to umm.....express ones self. u sick monkeys ;D). however, to the public of america it is seen as something as something u dont discuss in day light(unless it is a joke or u are an adolescent and dont know any better). everytime i go to the movies and there is a love scene going on i notice the audience is uncomfortable, some shift in there chairs, some giggle immaturly and some(usually when nudity occurs) cover there eyes. but when some one is gettin gthere head blown off it is obviously a time for the audience to uncover there eyes and witness the experience.


so what i am trying to say is. sex is seen as an unnatural thing while violence is very much accepted into today's society. this is sad indeed.

The first 2\3 are excellent, with little screen time devoted to the gringo (on a revenge mission against the gang led by Sancho who killed his brother) and more to the ways of the gang and its main characters, all involved in sex liaisons.
Unfortunately the end (based, for unfathomable reasons, on 3 flashbacks) is too elaborated, not supported by the protagonist charisma and where the only actors shining are Sancho and Sambrell. So this has only a 7\10. Remarkable a sex scene in a bathtub: one of the most erotic I ever saw in any movie (maybe because it comes unexpected). Benussi is at the peak of her beauty.    So maybe I could give it a 8\10.

I must have a cut version as mine doesn't contain any sex scene (there is always preperation for one but it cuts to another scene before anything happens) and the gory hand ripping effect (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NI3kFg6Ovk) is also MIA on my copy >:(

Despite the cuts I still liked it a great deal. Not a classic but a definate surprise.

8/10

Titoli, where did you get your version?
