Summer is officially upon us so it’s time to for cult movie fanatics to retreat to their viewing rooms as the inventors of the home theater intended.  With that in mind, here’s another dozen All Movie Guide reviews from around 2003 by Your Humble Reviewer.  The diverse bill of fare here includes an underrated spaghetti western, a few gialli, one of the wildest blaxploitation entries and several kung fu cult favorites from the Shaw Brothers studios.  There’s a double mea culpa here: The Don Is Dead is a little more fun than it gets credit for in the review below and Five Deadly Venoms’ unorthodox plotting deserves more respect than in got in its review here.  Those missteps aside, these reviews should help you get your summer home video schedule on its feet…
