Bad Luck and Trouble by Lee Child.  Before that I read Tripwire.  Both are 'Jack Reacher' novels.  Now all I can think of is how badly miscast Tom Cruise is as Jack Reacher in the upcoming movie.  Boggles the mind and it is too bad, really.  Lots of other action stars (and I use the term loosely - Tom Cruise an 'action star'? it is to laugh) should have come to mind long before they got down to the bottom of the barrel with Cruise.

"Meet the Feebles" (1989)
Peter Jackson followed up "Bad Taste" with this all-puppet exploitation flick centered around a Muppets-style troop of performing animals. As they prep for the broadcast of a live TV special, these critters swear, drink, have sex, deal and use drugs, eat crap, and basically do stuff we don't usually see puppets doing.
I thought "Mr. No Legs" was gonna be the most WTF movie I'd see this year, but "Feebler" takes the frickin cake, folks. From the 'Nam flashbacks of a heroin-addicted frog to a rat that films porn on the side to a fox's musical number about sodomy, "Feebles" is a hilariously tasteless, ultra sleazy one-of-a-kind experience. You'll feel like you need a shower when it's over.

In production number order, here are the ones I voted for (a couple of my picks would be considered fairly atypical, you have been warned):

102 The Robot Vs. the Aztec Mummy

THAT'S atypical. Probably one of my bottom ten. I like the other choices, though, even HAMLET, which I think doesn't deserve the hate it gets.

I've never been to the reddit website. I didn't even know what reddit was/is until 2-3 years ago.

That looks cool!  I love cryptozoology, even if I am a bit skeptical.

It's worth checking out if only for the creepiness factor.  Smile

Taeter City

Weirdass sci-fi/gore/horror film.  Set in the future, where The Authority controls an unnamed city with an iron fist.  The city though is a "utopia" because of these transmitter that shoot zeed radio beams that affect the brains of future criminals, causing them to horribly kill themselves instead of hurting other people.  After that, the Authorities' police force (known as The Bikers) show up to haul off the bodies which are then ground up and used a food source for the ever popular Taeter Burger restaurants. 

And unlike other "cannibals in the future" this is NOT a secret.  TV shows openly brag about this system, and everyone knows what they're getting when they place an order!  In fact, during the film one guy is arrested for the crime of raising cattle and eating animal meat (which a cop calls disgusting.) 

Well, the plot (such as it is), is this the zeed antennas somehow malfunction on a particular serial killer, and not only does he NOT kill himself, waves alter his genes to give him the ability to turn normal people into super-powered maniacs just by sonicly screaming at them.  When the killer escapes from a Termination Facility, the bikers are order to hunt him down.  The bikers consist of Razor, a hot chick with a skunk strip of white in her hair and the ability the cause "cutting lights" (green phantasmal lights that can apparently slice through anything) with her hands, and Skunk and Wank, two guys who... er.. well, they're just kind of there really.  The gang tracks the killer to a high rise apartment where he's already "converted" several of the residents for a big, bloody showdown.

And bloody it is!  This film makes the last ten minutes of Dead Alive look quaint.  We get all kinds of over the top killings, severed limbs, eye pops, bodies blowing up from exploding ammo, and a guy gets lovingly run over by a semi-trailer and we're treated to a close up to not one, but two of the wheels crushing the dude's skull. 

Even though the film supposedly only clocks in at 80 minutes (Amazon says 80, but I could have sworn the DVD says 75), the film still seemed a bit slow to me.  A lot of the scenes were pretty much pointless filler like the repeated animations of Taeter Burger commercials.  Which is kind of sad, because I think the premise had some potential to it, if nothing more than to be a goofy, fun, over the top violent action flick.  Instead, as other reviews have pointed out, it seems more like a demo reel.

"Cathy's Curse" (1977)

A man moves back into his old family homestead with his wife and daughter. Soon little "Cathy" is possessed by a vengeful spirit through an old doll she finds in the attic, and bodies start piling up.
This no-budget Canadian "Exorcist" wanna be fails in pretty much every department - the story, pacing, acting, dialogue and special effects all suck. Adding insult to injury, the picture & sound quality of the copy Amazon is streaming is positively abysmal.

I remember they had clips of this from Terror on Tape.  The store owner keeps showing clips to the guy that doesn't like scary films but he's all, "Wait, I have to show you what she does to her mother!"

Another in the "I can't believe there's not already a thread on this..." entry.

So, VHS (well, technically V/H/S, but that's just silly and confusing for search engines so I'm not gonna write it that way) and it's sequel VHS 2 and two horror anthologies based (if not actually recorded on) video tape found footage.  (And yes, I know there's a third one out there as well, but I haven't seen it yet, so I can't write about it.)

The first film follows a group of hooligans as they trash a building and terrorize a young couple to capture something exciting for film prosperity (it's hinted that they sell their tapes for funny.)  They're hired by someone to steal a valuable video tape from a house far out in the country.  (This is all conveniently explained in conversation between the guys as they film each other talking.)  They arrive at the house to find a dead man sitting in a chair, and a huge stack of cryptic videos.  Me, personally, if I were then, I would have just whipped out a garbage bag or two, stuffed every VHS I could find into it, and then get out ASAP, but these guys instead split up to search the house leaving one fellow to start watching a stack of tapes left alongside an static churning TV.  (BTW, this is in the same where the dead guy is lying a chair, facing the TV.)

The man inserts a tape and our first story begins.  In the first story, three men go out to a local bar and pick up two young ladies there, not realizing that one girl isn't quite what she seems to be... The story is recorded from on the character's glasses, which have a tiny inside them. 

As we go through the stories, we cut briefly back to the gang as they continue to explore the house.

In the second story, a young couple goes a second honeymoon when the man tells the wife about an odd encounter he just had with some woman outside the hotel they're staying at.  That night, while the couple sleep, a masked intruder enters their room and, using their camera, briefly films them sleeping.

The third is my second personal favorite. A group of friends go out into the woods in the middle of the week.  We find out it that some time ago, a maniac killed several people in this location, and one of the girls seems to know a bit more about the incident than she's letting on.  What was really creepy about this story (without giving too much away) is the appearance of the killer (whom the credits only refer to as The Glitch.) 

Next tape is a series of Skype recordings between a young girl and her boyfriend.  The girl has just moved into a new apartment complex and she's convinced her new place is haunted, but the truth may be far worse....

Neatly enough, the "wraparound" story wraps up at this point, but we still have one last tape to go...

Our final story has four college friends going to a house for a Halloween party but they end up at the wrong place walking right into something very sinister.  The first time I watched this ep, I was a bit disappointed as there's a part where two of the guys go off camera for a bit and come back and describe something really crazy happening and I was, "Oh, that's really nice, DESCRIBE something cool but not show it!"  Well, just wait, you get to see what they were talking about (and a lot more).

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
