    Black Cobra Woman looks tight on the sides, you can see it in the opening credits, they're cut off on the left. Watched it yesterday, definitely taken from a tape source. To those who know the movie or have seen it before, how explicit does it get in terms of nudity and sex? There are a couple of spots where the editing seemed very choppy, the most striking example being when Gemser and the blonde put on their bathing suits - it looks like it's leading into lesbian sex territory but then cuts to them, if I remember correctly, walking down the street. Maybe this is the way the movie plays out, I haven't seen it before - but the edit seemed unusually abrupt.

    I also thought that the movie itself was pretty slow. Palance is cool in it and does what he can with the material. Gemser sort of sleepwalks. One crazy scene involving Mr. Tinti and a snake towards the end took me by surprise. In typical D'Amato fashion it's nicely shot but it sure does recycle that main theme a lot throughout the movie.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    I felt the same way with regards to the pacing. The snake skinning scene took me by surprise, as well.

    Yeah, that was unexpected and gross. Did it seemed trimmed to you, Scyther? I'd never seen it before so I don't know...

    Is SUPERBITCH the Joan Collins thing? Just how trashy is it?

    Back in the day I had a pretty powerful fire in the pants for La Collins.

    Nope, Superbitch is an Italian crime flick with the great Ivan Rassimov.

    Horace, I think you're confusing SUPERBITCH with FEARLESS FUZZ/POLIZIOTTO SENZA PAURA, which is the Joan Collins poliziesco picture. Funnily enough, I often get the two pictures mixed up. SUPERBITCH features Stephanie Beacham.

    I like this one a lot, the Italian release runs 1hr 32:47 secs in PAL so i would imagine that the US bootleg is cut, it's not a very explicit film anyway, female nudity, can't remember if the lesbian scene leads anywhere off hand.There are two torrents out there in the usual places, one is a full dvd9 which is subbed and the other is an english friendly AVI fan dub, wish someone would combine the two or even better release an official version !

    Here's my Italian 4-fogli for this one

    Hey Adrian - cool to see you here.

    The DVD I have runs close to an hour and forty minutes (don't have it handy to check the exact time) so it's probably complete then. I guess given that it was D'Amato and Gemser, I expected more graphic sex!
