Joe D'Amato

Joe D’Amato — what the living fuck? That’s got to be the weirdest IMDB page I’ve seen. 40 different aliases, including Sarah Asproon, Drago Floyd, and Chang Lee Sun. He directed such inventively named films such as Porno Holocaust, Antropophagus, Emmanuelle and the Last Cannibals, X Hamlet (let me guess), and 170 some odd others – as many as 15 in one year. Antropophagus has a scene in which a man eats himself.
There’s a good interview here in which he calls himself a “craftsman” and says Raiders of the Lost Ark is his favourite film.

    I’ve seen his film “Paprika”, and I must admit, one of the blowjobs reminded me of the infamous running-away-from-a-rolling-boulder scene from “Raiders”. But that’s mostly ’cause the girl giving head kept getting slapped in the eye with the guy’s walnutsack.

    I have about 50 of his films if you’d like to borrow them. Ps. how did you get your post titles closer to the actual text of the post than it is in the mo-type original template?

    Edit the stylesheet, look for whatever class the title field is rendered in, and change the “margin-bottom” for that class.
