The theme for September’s AMG Dirty Dozens could be described a few different ways. If you want to be a wag, you could call them grab-bags. If you’re a bit more charitable in your thinking, consider them a display of diversity that covers the gamut of cultish tastes for someone interested in ’70s and ’80s fare. This installment includes the first celluloid venture of the Marvel Comics character the Punisher, the Italian side of Eurotrash represented with films from Joe D’Amato and Bruno Mattei, a couple of Joseph Wambaugh adaptations and more. Dive in and you’re likely to find something that will entertain you.
By the way, Schlockmania also has feature-length reviews for Mag Wheels (a.k.a. Summer School), The Farmer’s Other Daughter, The Alcove and Up Yours! A Rockin Comedy. If you dare, click on their titles below and you’ll see the larger reviews in addition to the capsule reviews included here. Have a happy schlock deep-dive.
