Goregirl’s Dungeon on YouTube: Zero Woman Red Handcuffs Times Two

Posted in movies with tags , , , , , , , on February 5, 2014 by goregirl

This one woman show needs a little break from the writing so I have another YouTube post for you. Music and images from ZERO WOMAN RED HANDCUFFS (1974) directed by Yukio Noda and starring Miki Sugimoto. I really enjoyed the music in Zero Woman and I hope you will dig it too.

Miki Sugimoto – Zero Woman Red Handcuffs Theme

I was unable to verify whether it was in fact Miki Sugimoto who sings this song so if you know differently please leave a comment! I am more than happy to be corrected!

Fun With GIFs: ZERO WOMAN RED HANDCUFFS

Posted in Fun with GIFs, movies with tags , , , , , on February 4, 2014 by goregirl

These two GIFs were created from the spectacular opening scene from Yukio Noda’s 1974 Pinky Violence classic Zero Woman Red Handcuffs. Rei aka Zero Woman (Miki Sugimoto) takes out Richard Saxon, First Secretary of the Embassy by first tethering him to a colomn with her red handcuffs and then shooting him in the nuts.

Fun with GIFs: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre “Sally’s Terror”

Posted in Fun with GIFs, horror, movies, USA with tags , , , , , on August 28, 2013 by goregirl

I almost feel a little bad calling this particular duo of GIFs “Fun”. One of the elements that always made Tobe Hooper’s brilliant 1974 horror film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre effective for me was Sally’s (Marilyn Burns) terror. The dinner scene in Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre ranks high among my favourites to appear in a genre film. We experience the scene from both “the family’s” and Sally’s perspective. Imagine finding yourself tied to a chair at this table? There is an onslaught of shots of Sally struggling and screaming juxtaposed with the family laughing and mocking her. Hooper lingers on Sally’s terrified face giving us close-ups of her facial features with a focus on the eyes. Despite its brutal reputation, there is very little graphic violence in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It is shots like these that give this masterpiece of horror its bad-ass reputation.
