Off The Island

In a change to our normal domestic flight path, we now take a 2,391.16 mile diversion to Hong Kong, and celebrate the arresting visual imagery and sheer bonkers brio of their television and film. 'Sexy Killer' is a 1976 take on the old 'comely lady takes brutal revenge on nasty criminals' sub-genre perhaps best typified by the fantastic Pam Grier. The credit sequence is just about the best thing in the film, but there is an awful lot more on offer: sex, violence, drugs, groovy music, larger than life performances - and some eye watering outfits.      


  1. (Um... I hate to assume the role of pedantic embarrassing-mistake-pointer-outer, but I'm pretty sure "Sexy Killer" is a Shaw Bros production, from Hong Kong: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074435/ )

    Anyway, regardless of where it was made, it still looks really good (those credits sequence graphics are jaw-dropping!); I'm looking forward to watching the dodgy downloaded avi I've got of it, and also looking forward to seeing some Asian content on the Island (so to speak).

  2. You're quite right, of course, schoolboy error. I have amended it so that future generations will have no idea what you're going on about. Thanks, Ben.
