Welcome back to another Saturday night of chills and thrills in The Dungeon! I have to admit, it's pretty tough to follow an act like "Killer Klowns From Outer Space," but I'm going to give it my best shot!
"Das Geheimnis Der Gelben Mönche," or as it was released in English, "Target For Killing!!" I have to admit, this is one of the most cheap and ugly title cards I've ever seen, but trust me, it gets nothing but better from here!
Here are the two main characters in "Target For Killing," one of Eegah!!'s all-time favourites, the luscious Karin Dor, and Stewart "I've never done a film I'm proud of" Granger! They don't know it, but they are on a plane bound for Hell!
Klaus Kinski is in there as the co-pilot with a conscience!
Why is this stewardess undressing??
Because her and the pilot and co-pilot have just bailed from the plane!
Before I go any further, I've got to tell you that the theme song from "Target For Killing" is one of the rockinest songs we've have a chance to present to you lately, and I really hope you enjoy it!
The musical credits in the film go to Marcello Giombini, and he's probably the only one who could tell us who this band actually is! (As it turns out, no he wasn't! At 6:10 PM on 6-10-15 some cat called Whale Fodder left an awesome comment to let us all know that this song was actually a song called "Cupidation" by Rome group the Bumpers." Thanx, man!) Sounds like a well-produced Hermanos Guzanos riff to me!
"Target For Killing" has everything you look for in a good movie like a monastery full of monks and strippers! (Of course, the strippers are only there because they are hypnotized!)
One of the finest actors of all time Curd Jürgens, is the head of all the evil action going on, and he's known as THE GIANT!
Scilla (Mill Of The Stone Women) Gabel is the Tiger! Tiger has two sides; this is her bad side!
And this is her good side!
This terrific bowling alley shot I expect to be freely shared by all the Tumblr freaks!
James Lablanche Stewart changed his name to Stewart Granger so as not to be confused with super popular actor of the time, James (It's A Wonderful Life) Stewart!
Pre-Doom or Call Of Duty, "Target For Killing" is full of first person shooter scenes like this, except in this case, it's a paint spray gun!
I just happen to adore Karin Dor! She's prefect!
Klaus Kinski actually gets a chance to try to be a good guy in this film before he gets murdered!
Karin Dor's character Sandra Perkins is on everybody's hit list! She's about to inherit five million dollars, and a lot of people would like to see her out of the picture! As it turns out, it's actually 70 million dollars which was a pretty nice piece of chump change back in 1966!
Who's going to be the big winner? What's behind door 13, and should she have taken the bag instead?
Sandra Perkins is given the key to the office of her new job, down a blind alley, and the key doesn't work, and an out of control garbage truck is headed her direction!
"Target For Killing" has a truly amazing cast that even includes Adolfo (Thunderball) Celi!
Personally, I felt that Stewart Granger just might have possibly not been the best choice for the leading man in this film, but on the same token, his campy performance also kind of takes the film to another level of enjoyment! If you're twisted enough, you just might like it as much as Chubby Checker!
Game Over, Man! Literally!
Thanx to all those cool folks over at Sinster Cinema for keeping this kind of crap afloat! Films like this could easily be lost forever without anybody really noticing, and that would really be a shame! They've got a deal now where you can buy 12 weird ass movies of your choice for $98.00 including postage, and that's where I'm headed right now! What a deal!
