ISLAND OF DEATH (1975)
This movie from Greece is like a highlight reel of random violent scenes strung together with barely a plot. The highlights, or low-lights depending on your point of view, consist of a goat getting fucked and then killed, a golden showers scene, a woman being decapitated by a bulldozer and various other silly murders. Plus you get multiple rapes, incest, a crucifixion and a weird caveman-like character who's also a rapist but also sort-of the hero. It's all very confusing. The killers are moralizing ass-hats so that gets grating really quick. Plus none of the victims through most of the movie even lift a finger to fight back against getting killed when they clearly could and would. What the fuck? It's worth watching once if you're into violent 70's cinema but there's not much else going on to recommend it.
