I suppose that most, if not all of you reacted the same way The Black Saint did when this remake of the beloved 80’s classic was announced.

Film Review: This Isn’t Twilight: The XXX Parody

Cadaverotica_Horror_p*rn_13_clip_image022

Greetings my perverted horror fans! The psychiatric hospital signed my release forms stating that my “issues” are untreatable and I might as well get used to the shiny unicorns, gun slinging Jewbots, and anemic Nazi prostitutes drinking all my booze in the living room.
