Here’s another review of The Can-Cannibals Double Feature; that was just posted! The review was written by Keri O’Shea for the website Brutal As Hell. We not only get a new review/perspective on the faux trailer (obviously), but we can a female perspective as well, which is awesome.
In the review, she mentions a term that’s being used to describe modern exploitation movies (Machete, Father’s Day, Dead Hooker in a Trunk, etc) that have been coming out that were influenced by the 70s/80s grindhouse films. The term is “rewindhouse.” I’ve never heard of it until this review, so to the reviewer’s disdain I just might start using the term, lol. I’m not entirely committed to it though. Anyways not only check out the review but the whole website too.
Excerpt from the review:
“But, what you do get is a sense of fun from proceedings and of a cast enjoying the experience of filming. Hell, I’d have been happy to see the girls (a real-life burlesque troupe) going even more over-the-top in their performances than they did, and I was happy that they got some good old-fashioned lo-fi gore in there. A grindhouse trailer ain’t complete without some blood and guts. Of the two ‘trailers’, I think Rebelle’s Revenge is the superior one for me: one big reason for this is that Courtney Cipriani as Rebelle brings the right sort of sneering attractiveness to her role. She looks the part and talks the talk, and we get the best lines of the film in this half of the reel. ” – Keri O’Shea (Brutal As Hell).
