Furs on Film – American Dreamer (1984)

It’s DVD time! Unlike The Gumshoe Kid, there is an outside chance American Dreamer may one day be delivered in a slightly higher resolution, but for now, we will have to make do with advanced technology. This exemplifies that we’re still at the “garbage in, garbage out” stage of AI upscaling. There’s only so much… Read More Furs on Film – American Dreamer (1984)

Furs on Film – Dolls (1987)

It’s almost Halloween, so let’s discuss a Stuart Gordon film. You know, Re-Animator, From Beyond, and… Dolls. Yes, this is not one of Gordon’s cult classics, but his third film, and he is only three away from his future masterpiece, Robot Jox. While this one was a little early for the evil doll movie renaissance… Read More Furs on Film – Dolls (1987)

Furs on Film – Murder-Rock: Dancing Death (1984)

Lucio Fulci is a big name in the scary movie world. He’s responsible for some genre classics in zombie and Gallio films and worked in many genres over a decades-long career. So, naturally, since I’m talking about him, we’ll be looking at one of his flops. Yes, horror fans may sing the praises of Zombi… Read More Furs on Film – Murder-Rock: Dancing Death (1984)

Furs on Film – A Stranger Is Watching (1982)

It’s October, time for the usual spooky theme month stuff. So, scary movies with fur in them. I’ve already posted a few, but there are a few more. Honestly, with the notable exception of Gallio, horror is not a great place to find fur fashion. It was not entirely absent, though, as we’re about to… Read More Furs on Film – A Stranger Is Watching (1982)

Furs on Film – Sokaktan gelen kadin (1984)

Let’s check out a different corner of the world: Turkey in the 1980s. Do I speak Turkish? No. Did the film have subtitles? No. Did this dissuade me in the least? No. Because I think it is safe to say that silver fox fur’s language is universal. So, let’s take a very plot-optional look at… Read More Furs on Film – Sokaktan gelen kadin (1984)

Furs on TV – Lace & Lace II (1984-85)

Hey, television, I’m supposed to be paying attention to that, too. So, let’s turn our dials back to the prestige TV mini-series era. It’s also the era of fabulous furs, the 1980s, which works out well for us. While many were sweeping in scope, many boiled down to short soap operas with a colossal location… Read More Furs on TV – Lace & Lace II (1984-85)

Furs on Film – The Last Metro (1980)

The ’80s were great for a lot of reasons. Okay, mostly the furs, but you could also make movies where Nazis were the bad guys without some whiny bitches on Twitter complaining about it. So let’s take a ride on The Last Metro and hope no one shows up in the comments to claim that… Read More Furs on Film – The Last Metro (1980)

Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

There’s not a lot that is remarkable about Rent-a-Cop. At best, it’s an ‘80s cop show with naughty words and flirtations with more explicit violence. I don’t think it deserved the attention from the Razzies, but the only particularly remarkable thing about it is how well Liza kept warm throughout the winter exterior shoots. And,… Read More Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Want a horror movie set in the desert where the ladies wear fur? Sure, we got that too. Interestingly, White of the Eye relentlessly establishes the southwest Arizona scenery every chance it gets, all so Cathy Moriarty can cruise around it in a red fox jacket. Oh, and a horny housewife can pull the ole… Read More Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)
