The Top 10 Best Blogo Trasho Movies of 2013, Las Vegas Trip Gone Wrong, Punks, Viruses, Daddy Issues, More sex in a morgue, Jorge Reynoso is a BOSS, Damn you 2013, 2014 please be nice!

This year was all over the damn place and messy. I would of posted more if this or that didn't came up, blah blah, & blah blah. So much to deal with and the ironic part is now that the year is over, it's all smooth sailing from now on. Hopefully. Anyway, I'll quit my vague rant and get started on trashy goodness! AH!

So this year, I did find some cool & bad movies to watch and got to cover them on the blog. Sadly, soooo many other cool & bad movies didn't get covered this year! It saddens me because I really wanted to show these off & all, but again, I was just caught up with a lot of personal & important business. Again though, at least I got to show some of these movies off and I'm glad I was able to and I am so glad you readers of this ridiculous blog enjoyed the posts and groovy YouTube clips. Thank you very much! (except people that bugged me on youtube)

 It was hard to pick 10 of the best, but I managed to to set up a list along with an "Honorable Mentions" tab of 3 titles. So, here they are: The Top 10 Best Blogo Trasho Movies of 2013 + 3 Weird ass Fuck Honorable Mentions. (Click the title of the movie to read review)

1. Matanza En Las Vegas (1989)
Yes, this is the best one of 2013. Sure I thought the movie was crap, but this was interesting obscure crap. This movie has still remain a big mystery to me. I was able to scrape some info on a US VHS release which was titled "Pesadilla En Las Vegas" (Nightmare in Las Vegas), and the actor that played the "gay music manager" guy also starred in other bizarre SOV movies which were mostly shot in South LA. Playing the same kind of character, too. Weird. Overall though, this is the Best Blogo Trasho Movie of 2013. Cornelio Reyna Jr, wherever you are; may you be resting in peace and your movie about getting in trouble in Vegas will forever be remembered on this blog and my ridiculously Mexican manufactured VHS copy will forever be a treasure of mine. Armando Molina, director of Matanza En Las Vegas, WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU?!

2. El Virus Del Poder (1988)
The Future. A Virus Outbreak. Punks. Sex. What a movie El Virus Del Poder is! Definitely another movie I'm glad to have been able to watch and got some people interested in. Xorge Noble directed this crazy ass movie and he did plenty more after this one. Hooray, Mr. Noble. I love you.

Another insane Xorge Noble movie. This movie was just one big What in the Fuck. Really, really wild. Dayum.

Daddy loved this movie. Daddy as in me. But seriously though, this was a great movie. Its serious, then exploitive, then just plain bizarre. I love every minute of it.

What a crime flick! Watched it in both English and Spanish and I loved it in both languages. I must admit though, that US/English release has a sweet cover. You gotta love Punk Flaco Guzman on the front.

Really good plot and great cast! This Mexican/South American hybrid is a great watch.

More punks. Mexican punks. These Mexicans punks are always so mean & cool!

Jorge Reynoso. BOSS OF BOSSES. He's so cool in this movie. Then again, he's always cool. He's probably doing something cool right now.

Meche Carreño is so gorgeous and such a talented actress. I grew fond of her after watching this movie and ever since then I been looking into collecting her other movies. I acquired "Venganza en el Mar" (No Hay Cruces En El Mar) and I'm definitely anxious to review that movie soon since its another good movie starring Meche. Bless her.

I was actually the 1st guy to cover this movie online and I pretty much hyped it up because I did like it for what it was (a quicky remake with a hot leading lady and a story I love). Sadly a lot of these people that read my review were personally disappointed in the movie once they got to watch it for themselves. I'm not really sure why, but there is just not many fans of this movie. I'm probably the only fan of the remake of the 1991 classic and I'm so sad about it, wah (not really). Mad props to Christian Gonzalez for remaking his classic for the new age and briefly chatted with me about it.

3 Honorable Mentions:

So there you have that. Now let's forget this year and move on to the next one. 2014, hopefully you're good to me and Blogo Trasho as well. I have reviews all set up to be posted soon, so be on the lookout for them! I hope you will enjoy them and the rest that will come from then on. And of course there will be YouTube video clips of these movies. Ah hell, maybe even some GIFs next to the screenshots. Oh, boy I can't wait! Anyway, I'll see ya then. Take care. Hold your Garfield plush doll tight, hold Payasito tight, and love Jorge Reynoso! Cheers.

The Sex Call.

George Hilton stars in the 1977 Sex Thriller La Llamada Del Sexo (aka The Sex Call) as Carlos, an advertisement agent who is set to work with a beautiful model named Monica (Rosey Mendoza). Monica just happens to remind Carlos of his late sister Karin (Veronica Miriel), whom he had a sexual relationship with. So Carlos and Monica begin to work together and start seeing each other afterwards. When Carlos is with Monica, he has flashbacks of the times he spent with Karin. This of course involved sexual intercourse and ‘teasing’. Karin was Carlos' obsession in his youth, and now Monica is his obsession in adulthood. Carlos may sound like he lives an interesting & exciting life, but he does have problems of course. His problems involve his psychic friend Victor (Andres Garcia) telling him of things that will happen. These things that will happen involve his self-destruction and demise. Carlos at first doesn't take Victor's prophecies serious, but when they happen, he starts to believe he is going to die for sure. Carlos is also having trouble divorcing his wife; money is of course what's keeping the divorce from happening. All of Carlos issues eventually collide in the strangest ways possible.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I really admire movies involving the characters' childhoods & adolescent years. In La Llamada Del Sexo, we get plenty of glimpses of Carlos' sexually-driven adolescence with his sister, whom isn't blood related to him by the way. It was interesting to see how obsessed he was with her, since he would film her topless running about in their home, sleeping with her constantly, and she even strips for him privately during a bizarre family masquerade in their home.

Overall though, the entire movie is just interesting and never grows boring at all. I really liked this movie. The plot is good, acting is good, and not to mention the cast is fantastic. Obviously the female leads are the fantastic ones. I especially loved the scenes with the innocent-faced Veronica Miriel. She rarely spoke in the movie, but she looked really good in the movie though. I also can't forget to mention Rosey Mendoza, whom also has an innocent face, but has a body that will definitely capture your dirty attention.

Even though George Hilton was the leading man, Andres Garcia was the better man of the movie since he is such a great actor and his character was quite interesting. He almost steals the movie with a scene where he's set up in a room full of people to show his powers. It was a random scene really, but interesting nevertheless.

As you can see (or actually read), I pretty much enjoyed this movie a lot. I can't complain about anything other than wishing it was a longer movie. I wanted a 2 hour movie I guess, but oh well. La Llamada Del Sexo is definitely a Sexual Thriller to watch. Sadly the movie isn't on DVD and only on VHS, but of course the VHS tape is always hard to find (booo). There are downloadable copies online floating around though, so grab that if you can't find a VHS copy.

La Llamada Del Sexo is a must watch. I truly recommend watching it sometime. 10/10.
