Go Film Go (Postergasm 2)

Unless marked by *, (year) of cultural reference in feature presentation indicates original was favoured over remake.

** different film bearing same title also existed.

Also, additional notes will be made at my discretion.

Miscellany

About Time - Amélie
Boogie Nights - Serpico
Charlie's Angels - E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
Don Jon - Titantic
James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster was nothing like 1953 film of same name.

Pink Flamingos - Baby Doll
Rabid - Carrie
Run, Fatboy, Run - Team America: World Police
Saturday Night Fever - Rocky
Trainwreck - *Scarface (1983)
Zathura: A Space Adventure - Bullitt
Hot Tub Time Machine
Okay, we've got Rocky IV (far left) and Red Dawn (left).

Fine, because both were released before 1986.
However, the same thing can't be said about Rambo III (far right), as that wasn't shat into existence until 1988.
From now on, I give you multiples.

Last Action Hero

A Few Good Men
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Single White Female
Wayne's World

Beast of the Yellow Night (top left) and Creature with the Blue Hand (bottom left)
Pet Sematary (Megadeth version).
Ha ha ha!
L.A. Without a Map

The Big Red One (left), Breaking the Waves (middle), Mystery Train (right) and The Man Who Knew Too Much (bottom right)
A Matter of Life and Death (left) and Dead Man (right)
Vertigo
Final Exam

The Toolbox Murders (left), The Corpse Grinders (middle) and Murder Is My Beat (right)
Born to Kill was originally released as Cockfighter, meaning reissue could be confused with 1947 film of same name.
Eli Roth's tribute to Italian cannibal films The Green Inferno is dedicated to Ruggero Deodato (Per Ruggero).

After all, Cannibal Holocaust is 'the mother of all cannibal films'.

37° 2 le matin (original French title for Betty Blue)
Christiane F
Swimming with Sharks was a darkly humorous satire on Hollywood, with an unsurprisingly great performance by Kevin Spacey.

Gas, Food Lodging
Raiders of the Lost Ark
1941
Casualties of War
Swedish horror comedy Evil Ed may be an obvious play on Evil Dead, but title comes from Stephen Geoffrey's nickname in Fright Night.

Evil Dead 2 cannot be missed, but slapped on side of computer monitor is a miniature of Trans-Gen (Spanish title for 1987 horror The Kindred).
Critters
Cherry 2000
Dr. Giggles
Prince of Darkness
Title also subs a 1966 Dracula film.
*The Fly (1986)
What was wrong with Little Nicky?

EVERYTHING.

Anyway...

Blow-Up
Psycho (1960)
The Birds
Loosely based on the novel of same name, The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) is definitely not teenage trash and comes highly recommended.

Zombie (centre), Shock Waves (right) and Murders in the Rue Morgue (far right)
Those with keen eyes will notice mirror casting Maniac (1980) in its reflection.
The She-Creature (left) and The Brain Eaters (right)
At nearly three hours long, David Fincher's Zodiac is both brilliant and boring.

Whatever your opinion, take a skeg at these beauties.

**Conquest (1937) (left) and Key Largo (right)
I Died a Thousand Times
Illegal (left) and Atomishe duivels (Flemish title for Them!)
The Asphalt Jungle (top left) and The Wrong Man (centre)
The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms
I'll finish off with John Landis's classic An American Werewolf in London.

Subway contains odds and brilliant sods.

Gloria
The Long Good Friday
Prom Night (left), The Formula (top right) and Airplane! (bottom right)
Monty Python's Life of Brian
Raging Bull
Battle Beyond the Stars
Later in porno theatre, Gerald Bringsley (Michael Carter) informs David he was the victim of his carnivorous lunar activities.

Oh, there's one more in Nurse Price's apartment.

Casablanca
Until next time.
