A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Last night I watched a low budget urban cannibal gore-fest called THE BUTCHER BOYS.
It was one of those movies that left you asking "What the HECK did I just watch??"

Four teens in a car are leaving a fancy restaurant and get in a drag race with two punks after the daredevil girl keys their car.  The punks run over a dog owned by four Hispanic gang types all wearing black.  The sinister gang figures kill both the guys that hit their dog, then take out after the teens.  Turns out they are supplying human meat to some upscale restaurant that caters to an elite clientele of cannibals, but the gang types have gotten addicted to human flesh.  Lots of gratuitous cannibalism (including boobie munching!), gore, profanity, and torture, not a lot by way of actual storyline or plot.  There's even some "let's eat the exposed brain while the victim is still alive" ACTION a la HANNIBAL.  The final girl escapes with the aid of a couple of Mexicans as the demented cannibal pursuers attack a gang of animal rights protestors outside the restaurant . . . I TOLD you it made no sense!

My annual Schlock-Tober marathon isn't complete without a viewing of this one...

"City of the Walking Dead" aka "Nightmare City" (1980)

http://www.youtube.com/v/8IGf83NMCKo

A radioactive spill turns city inhabitants into bloodthirsty mutant zombie something-or-others that can drive cars, fly airplanes (!!) and use knives and guns in this hilarious no-budget Spanish/Italian "Dawn of the Dead" wanna be that features all the hallmarks of truly great Eurotrash grindhouse cinema - cheap/bizarre makeup, plentiful (but phony looking) gore, awkward dialogue, atrocious dubbing, and numerous plot holes covered up by non-stop ridiculous action sequences. 

Seriously folks, this is the best Z-movie EVER made. It sucks, but I never get tired of watching it!!

THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY X (2012): Alien juvenile delinquents are exiled to earth, where they scheme over a "resurrection suit" that can bring a recently deceased rock and roll idol back from the dead. In black and white with musical numbers. The hepcat influences here are so cool you root for the movie to work, but the incoherent script, flat musical numbers and lame attempts at comedy lead to nowheresville, man. Still, there are a few campy kicks along the way, including "The Office"'s Creed Bratton as an unlikely rock idol. 2/5.

Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (2004)

Small | Large


Direct-to-video prequel to the cult giant-worm saga takes place in the 1870s, with Michael Gross portraying Hiram Gummer, the great-grandaddy of his gun-nut 'Burt' character from the other three films. In a neat role reversal, Hiram's a tenderfoot from the city who comes out to investigate strange goings-on at the silver mine he owns. When the so-called 'Dirt Dragons' are discovered it's up to Hiram and his fellow townspeople to saddle up and take back their valley.

Low budget fun, with a healthy dose of the series' usual goofy sense of humor.

A Perfect Murder (1998) - This is a pretty typical Michael Douglas movie, which means it's pretty damn good. Gywneth Paltrow is okay as the young wife though she has no real distinguishing qualities other than that she randomly speaks fluent Spanish. Vigo Mortenson is her guy on the side and he's, of course, a painter who lives in a gigantic loft. I wonder if he and the guy from Unfaithful hang out and talk about their good fortune in procuring such nice living spaces with meager means. It has nothing approaching the complexity of The Game or the color of Fatal Attraction but it's does the trick. It's slick and fun to watch but when you reflect on it there's not all that much to reflect on. 4/5

SUMMER WARS (2009): A rogue artificial intelligence wrecks havoc on "Oz," an omnipresent virtual reality network of the near future, seizing control of most of the world's computers; a young math genius is the only hope to save the infrastructure. Decent juvenilia with outstanding psychedelic animations in the nonsensical but beautiful cyberspace battle scenes. 3/5.

Cherry Bomb (2010)

http://www.youtube.com/v/8BMjgSdhhkU

Remember the early 80s rash of "female vigilante" films like 'Ms. .45,' 'Lipstick' and 'Avenging Angel?' The makers of this uber-cheap shot on video 'homage' obviously do. Set in 1984, a stripper named 'Cherry Bomb' is gang-raped by five scum bags, and she spends the rest of the movie hunting them down and picking them off one by one. Yep, that's the whole plot.

The gal playing 'Cherry' is cute but everything else about this flick - the acting, the action scenes, the dialogue - is pure crapola. You know you're in trouble when the biggest name in a movie is porn star Nick Manning (known to Howard Stern fans as the 'droppin' f**kin' loads!' guy) in his first 'mainstream' role.

Avoid!

Dune (1984) - there's this desert planet and it's the sole source of something called spice - a substance that among other things, enables certain mutated creatures to fold space allowing for travel all over the universe.  Various factions vie for control of the planet, first the evil Harkonnens have it (I think?), then it's taken over by the nice people from House Atreides, but the emperor of the universe doesn't like them because they've developed a new weapon which might threaten his power, so he has the Harkonnens retake the planet.  The Duke of House Atreides is killed but his son and wife flee to the desert where they ally themselves with the native population and stage a revolt against the Harkonnens.

This has a always been a favorite of mine, with fabulous art direction, strong memorable characters, and quite an interesting story.  My only real complaint (aside from dialogue that gets a tad corny at times) is that the ending really doesn't tie things up at all.  We're left with the two sides standing in a room staring at each other.  Will they halt spice production?  Do they just want to be in charge of it?  And it's also a real Battle of the Bulge scenario as one side gained the advantage due to bad weather rendering the other side's air power useless.  However that weather isn't going to last forever and they've got a stupendous amount of air power waiting and ready to go.  

Oh well, still a grand experience.  5/5.

MST3K: THE BRUTE MAN: The feature film is a little piece of dreck starring deformed Rondo Hatton as a "creeper" who strangles his victims. This dark and dull dud is overshadowed by the pro-poultry short, "Chicken of Tomorrow." Back in Deep 13, Pearl goes on a date with a schmuck, which makes Dr. Forrester uncomfortable. This is another poor Season 7 effort; if not for the short it would be a total loss. 2.5/5.

2012: Ice Age (2011)

Small | Large


Yet another zero budget disaster film from The Asylum that rips off both of Roland Emmerich's then-recent end of the world epics, '2012' and 'The Day After Tomorrow' (neither of which were really deserving of a ripoff in the first place!).

Volcanic eruptions cause a giant rogue glacier to break loose and bear down on the continental U.S. (at 200 miles per hour!). As the East Coast slowly freezes solid, a family must race from Maine to New York in order to rescue their estranged daughter.

As usual for an Asylum film, '2012: Ice Age' features a ridiculous plot and script, D-list stars (Patrick 'Little House on the Prairie' Labyorteaux! Julie 'Growing Pains' McCullough!), bad acting and hilariously cheap special effects.

That said, I still liked this better than either of Emmerich's bloated, pretentious epics!

TABU (2012): After a lonely old woman dies in Lisbon, her ex-lover tells of their tempestuous affair in colonial Africa in a dialogue-free flashback. The second half of the film is a stylistically appealing melodrama, but the first hour is slow, emotionally flat, and basically unnecessary. 3/5.

Didn't they have a giant shark going 600 mph in one of their other movies?  I remember they "engaged turbos" on the nuclear submarine to keep up with it  BounceGiggle

Even more unbelievable, they were able to make it to New York ahead of the glacier, driving over snow choked roads in a beat up van. That thing must've been equipped with a flux capacitor!!  TeddyR
