Freak of the Week: The Inglorious Bastards

Yes, we spelled that title correctly.  We’re talking Enzo G. Castellari‘s 1978 flick that only resembles Quentin Tarantino’s questionable new movie in terms of its World War II setting and a couple words in the title.

How does The Inglorious Bastards qualify as a freak?  To start, its Italian title is Quel maledetto treno blindato (“That damned armored train”), and to boot it’s an Italian-directed genre picture starring Fred Williamson.  That should be enough to guarantee something, if only pulpy fun, leaps of logic and corny post-sync dialogue.

Decide for yourself August 30-September 1, when that damned train plays on a double bill with The Dirty Dozen at the New Beverly in Los Angeles.
