I have nothing to do, personally or financially, with the cult video/DVD sellers at Shocking Videos (i.e., RevengeIsMyDestiny). I’m just on their mailing list, awaiting the day I can afford to stock up on a bunch of their offerings.
They’ve got a sale going on now until February 28, and I went over to their “secret” list of new titles to see what I wasn’t going to be buying this time. Lots of cool stuff over there, some of which sounds… familiar.
Like take this movie, for example, which reminds me of 2008’s Be Kind, Rewind:
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 WAYS (87)
Offbeat Aussie black comedy about a pair of conniving brothers who attempt to get into their geriatric, half-blind father’s good graces (and bank account) by convincing him that they’re treating him to a whirlwind world cruise. In reality, they’re staging everything in the backyard and at the local shopping mall (which doubles as the airport and Las Vegas)! Eventually Pops catches on and puts the lads through their paces making increasingly more grandiose and difficult to fake requests… like insisting on Geisha girls when they get to “Japan.” Good stuff! Great looking letterboxed print of this hard to find curiosity.
But this one from 1989 really stood out:
(…) a satirically horrific tale of the super wealthy in Beverly Hills. Billy Warlock, the adopted son of such an entitled clan, is growing increasingly paranoid. His family appears to be engaging in incestuous games behind his back, and odd, mutant humanoids flicker outside his line of vision. It turns out that his family, along with their privileged friends are part of an alien race, who shape-shift and take part in polymorphous orgies. Largely dismissed in the U.S., Society enjoyed an enthusiastic response from U.K. critics due in no small part to their familiarity with inbred, powerful monsters (think of the Royal Family!).
You don’t say.
Was one of the British people who saw that movie sportscaster turned conspiracy theorist David Icke, who didn’t start publishing books until a few years after that film was released?
For Icke, Sumerian Kings and Egyptian pharaohs have all been Aryan reptilian humanoids, as have 43 American presidents and the Queen Mother, who he writes was “seriously reptilian.” All have taken part in Satanic rituals, paedophilia, kidnapping of children, drug parties and murder, needed to satisfy their reptilian blood lust, which allows them to retain their temporary human form.
If Icke’s name sounds familiar, that’s because The Guy Who is Suing Us, and his dear friend Bernie Farber, have been tirelessly providing free publicity to protecting Canadians from the sinister influence of this, er, useless New Age freak.
That’s where your donations to the United Jewish Appeal and the Canadian Jewish Congress go, guys! Why not ask for a refund?
