WELCOME TO THE EUROPEAN FILM REVIEW
Editorial

Welcome to EuropeanFilmReview.co.uk, the home of European Exploitation Cinema - in all of its forms and flavours - on the internet.

**The EuroSpy Guide has now been published! You can buy a copy at Amazon.com or, alternatively, I have a few copies available for sale (email me for more info)**. Find out more about The EuroSpy Guide, including content breakdown.

I'd also advise having a look at our ongoing project: the Italian Genre Timeline. It's an attempt to chart the ebbs and swells of Italian Exploitation Cinema from 1945 onwards.

And, while your about it, why not check out the excellent site run by our good friends at bcult.it

Matt Blake (editor)

By the way, if you're interested in exchanging films, I've just put my film list online.

Yonderboi album cover
Yonderboi: Splendid Isolation. I loved Yonderboi's first album, SHALLOW AND PROFOUND, and this is just as good.
Sigur Ros: Takk. Best album yet from the Icelandic ambient rock outfit. I never thought I'd hear this lot on Radio 1.
Coil: The Ape of Naples. Last album from Jhon Balance and Peter Christopherson. Essential, if sad.
