Happy Halloween! This week we have only the tastiest of treats and biggest bags of candy from the horror honeys on Netflix Instant. Scare your pants off with the feral full frontal of Pollyanna McIntosh in The Woman (2011), and say nice BOO-bies to Carice van Houten in Intruders (2012). Then have no fear because there are plenty of French funbags in Sheitan (2006) and House of Voices (2004), and there’s a heaping of Hong Kong hoots in Dream Home (2010). Finally, see bumps in the night from Traci Lords in Not of This Earth (1988), and doomed dame danglers in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986).

No tricks, just teats this weekend on the boob tube: First, Gretchen Mol reprised last week’s rackage in bed and in the bath with her new lover, a Boardwalk Empire storyline that started at “creepy incestuous overtones” and only got more twisted from there. Less disturbing but just as naked were Juliet Reeves, who bared boobs and bush as a stripper on this week’s Treme, and British actress Helen Kennedy, who made her topless debut as a secret agent’s girlfriend on Hunted. We’d like to be the spy who shagged her.

The masterminds behind this attempt to outdo William Lustig‘s brilliantly twisted 1980 slasher classic (good luck with that, by the way) are Alexandre Aja and Gr
Dave Markey is an underground legend. A filmmaker who started making Super 8 movies before he hit his teens, by the time he finished high school he and his best friend Jordan Schwartz were the unofficial chroniclers of LA’s hardcore punk scene thanks to their ‘zine We Got Power!.
We Got Power! only lasted for a few years, but after a long and totally awesome career documenting and making music videos for bands like Sonic Youth, Shonen Knife, The Circle Jerks, The Meat Puppets and Dinosaur Jr. as well as making the punk rock girl-gang classic Desperate Teenage Lovedolls (1984), its sequel Lovedolls Superstar (1986), and the award-winning documentary The Reinactors (2008), Dave teamed back up with his friend Jordan to re-visit their old ‘zine.
The result is We Got Power!: Hardcore Punk Scenes from 1980s Southern California, the new book from Bazillion Points that combines Markey and Schwartz’s photographs with essays from the people who were there. Illuminating, impassioned, and essential reading for anyone in need of some inspiration, We Got Power! is the definitive document of LA hardcore in the early ’80s.
We talked to Dave at home, where he told us about his movies, the LA scene then and now, and the indelible appeal of Russ Meyer.
