COLOUR CORRECT MY COCK (Review)

COLOUR CORRECT MY COCK (2012)


review by AARON ALLEN

James Bialkowski and Jacob Windatt

-------------------------------------------    

You've seen trailer compilations before, but you've never seen anything like Colour Correct My Cock: Vagrancy Film's in-your-face and defiantly down-and-dirty mixtape movie of G, PG, R, X, and XXX oddities from the grindhouse era. They don't make films like this anymore, and no one but Vagrancy Films has had the balls to create a trailer compilation this shocking, this hilarious and this out of control.


Vagrancy has been putting on raucous 35mm screenings since 2005. Now, with their first official video release, Colour Correct My Cock, Vagrancy films brings its unique celebration of obscure and vinegary days of low-brow exploitation and genre cinema to home video in a two-hour mix tape of action, boobs. blaxploitation, dwarves, westerns, smut, killer sharks, comedies, retro theatre bumpers, German porn, kung fu, funny animal movies, crime, sex, and even the occasional Blackenstein.

Although the days of the true Grindhouse theatre are over, and the digital era is snuffing out what remains of 35mm film, we can be thankful that guys like James Bialkowski and Jacob Windatt (aka Jake Grimbro)-- the guys behind Vagrancy Films and Shock Stock -- are out there preserving the kind of obscure, greasy, and cheesy 35mm trailers and clips that once played in shady and low-rent exploitation theatres across North America. Not only that, but the guys at Vagrancy thumb their noses at restoration. As the opening introductory video explains, anyone looking for a slick or remastered trailer compilation can "colour correct my cock!" Vagrancy presents these trailers in their most iconic form -- grainy, scratched, and smash-cut --  by preserving each clip's natural pinky and stinky qualities. The colour, the film damage, the hisses and the pops -- these are the true marks of real grindhouse films.

Sounds chaotic and unpredictable? Well it is. Colour Correct My Cock is like the carnival freak show of film compilation trailers. Defying the conventions of other trailer compilations which tend to group trailers by era or theme, Colour Correct My Cock takes you on an insane ride through the vaults of Vagrancy's 35mm curiosities. Pinwheeling from sex comedies to action and then from kid's movies to sexploitation films and even pornography, Colour Correct My Cock is a very unique compilation with a Canadian focus. The disc also contains a feature-length commentary by directors/curators James Bialkowski and Jake Windatt that's almost as fun and crazy as the compilation itself.

Colour Correct My Cock is a cheeky, rock and roll exploitation ride for fans of sleazy celluloid, rare 35mm, and obscure/retro Canadiana. Featuring rare clips and trailers not available on any other compilation, Colour Correct My Cock is a vital part of any grindhouse and exploitation fan's library.

COLOUR CORRECT MY COCK is the wildest and must fucked up compilation of vinegary movie trailers and smutty clips from the lost and forgotten vaults of 35mm film history. They don't make grindhouse and erotica like this anymore, and no one but Vagrancy Films would have the balls to release a trailer compilation this totally insane and hilarious.

For seven years, Vagrancy Films (the organizers of Shock Stock: Canada's Filthiest Horror Convention), have been touring North America exhibiting obscure and cult 35mm films. Now, like hot incestuous sisters, Horror in the Hammer and Vagrancy have given in to their sleazy urges and teamed up to bring Hamilton a taste of the Vagrancy / SHOCK STOCK experience.
