Video Escombros (2009) is a compilation, a mix-tape if you will, compiled of numerous short clips of films, some set to music, others containing the original audio tracks from the films they were taken from. Think of it as DIY videos for fans of the weird and obscure. The video compilation is thrown onto a dvd and is roughly 30 minutes in duration, and a fun 30 minutes it was! Even with the 1,000's upon 1,000's of films I have seen during my lifetime, there still had to be many films on this compilation that I had not seen before and now really want to get my dirty little hands on these bizarre and highly amusing gems.
The genres covered on this disc span all across the boards and include kung-fu flicks (the crippled kind!), Luchadores, monsters, flying peaches, biker chicks with guns, robots gone wild, Kamen Rider (my fav!), dragons, car mash ups, killer brains, a very cool claymation piece, and "some really rad synth tunes! I really wish the length was well over 30 minutes, but don't worry, Sun Cult Video has many more of these mix tape dvds for sale. One of my favorite clips was the headbanger playing a doubleV-neck super guitar and having two typical '80s blonde bimbos laying at the guy's feet and clinging to his legs as if his guitar solo was truly mesmerizing and sexually turning them on. It was too hilarious! My only complaint with this mix was that there was not enough blood and boobs, but this was only one and on the website it looks like there are certain mixes for every type of video one may want. There even was one clip with actor Viggo Mortensen and NO, it was not from Lord of the Rings. There also was a wonderful car mash-up scene that had me rolling in laughter.
The dvd is definitely party tape material and I will definitely be busting it out at the next "rager" I have. Check out the website and see what there is to offer. I am particulary curious to get my hands on the ones that mix horror and porn- a match made in hell!
