Evolver (1995) - a kid wins a video game contest and as his prize he gets a small robot that roams around his house, his family can shoot little laser guns at it and it shoots rubber balls back. What fun! Except that it was originally intended as a military robot and it's not long before that old programming starts seeping into it's game playing stuff. Not good news for our suburban family Bluesad This seemed like it was made for kids in their early teens, it was pretty silly and cheesy, but moderately enjoyable. 3/5.

Donner Pass (2012) - some kids go to a cabin in the woods that's somewhere in the vicinity of where the Donner party had their unfortunate incident many years earlier. Surprise surprise, it's not long before some maniac is killing and eating them. There's only about two or three likable characters in this, the rest are the type you're quite happy to see get slaughtered, and the sooner the better. I guess it had pretty good atmosphere and wasn't as cheesy as most low budget slashers. Though there were boobs. Meh, kind of hard to feel any sense of suspense when you're cheering for the killer. 3/5.

NIGHTMARE CITY (1980): Radioactive waste turns people into super-strong blood drinking maniacs. Big, dumb, gory Italian zombie movie, the kind where the monsters rip off the victim's blouse before ripping out her heart. It's OK if that's what you're looking for. 3/5 for zombies fans.

     THE DEVIL'S PARTNER (1961)

"The Devil's Partner" (Jean Allison) 1958 Small | Large


     The packaging for this film says 1961, although the YouTube says 1958; I've also heard 1962.
An'hoo, a unique little film, about an old man who makes a deal with the devil to be young again.

The Shock Labyrinth (2009) - a girl shows up at a friend's house, which is rather surprising to the friends because they all thought she was dead. She falls down some stairs and they take her to the hospital. Unfortunately for them, the hospital seems deserted and soon the girl runs off and they find themselves locked in a dark building with terror at every turn! Kind of a neat story I guess. Pretty standard stuff for Asian horror. I have to admit I fell asleep several times during this and I don't feel as if I missed a thing. The characters were somewhat interesting and the twist at the end, well...you'd have to sleep through a lot more of it than I did not to see it coming a mile away. 3/5.

Cowboy Killer (2008) - a well dressed and well manned cowboy wanders into town. The only bad thing you can really say about the guy is that he's a teensy bit of a psycho serial killer. After blowing away pretty much anyone who ticked him off, eventually a group of idiots get together for a big showdown at the end. A dark comedy, it's one of those things that made me think "that's sort of clever" a few times but never made me laugh. Or even chuckle. It's weird and silly, meh...better than a sharp stick in the eye. 3/5.

An Unmarried Woman (1978) - Woody Allen style, NYC flavored chick flick. Jill Clayburgh's husband leaves her. Her daughter is the only normal one in this movie  the rest of them are corny, sleazy and/ or self involved and awful but it's a good movie. If you like NYC there is an awful lot of it in this movie. The Soho lofts and so forth are all a bit fanciful and it's not on Woody Allens level in terms of a grand statement about life but it's enjoyable. 4/5

The Demons of Ludlow (1983) - on its 200th anniversary a town is given a piano (which sounds like a harpsichord accompanied by a Casio keyboard), but of course it's a cursed "piano" and soon ghosts are appearing and causing other people to become ghosts as well. Two people who work for the local newspaper try to get to the bottom of the mystery. I wouldn't exactly say this was boring, though I'm probably the only one who wouldn't. There are a few cute '80s babes in it which is about the only thing it's got going for it. Best scene by far is when a guy tries to chop up the piano with an axe and it starts flying through the air BounceGiggle 2.5/5.

BREAKOUT FROM OPPRESSION (1978): A woman is released from prison on murder charges and tries to start a new life, but a jealous teenager targets her for revenge when their boss takes a romantic interest in the new arrival. This thriller/mystery flirts with sleaze, and might have been a minor trash classic if it had been willing to go all the way. 2/5. Not a martial arts movie despite the fact that Mill Creek stuck it in the martial arts pack.

"The Prowler" (1981) - a psycho dressed in US Army fatigues carves up a bunch of co-eds attending a graduation ball, to settle a grudge that dates back to the end of World War II. An above average slasher with impressive FX by the great Tom Savini, who apparently considers this movie to be his best work.

"The New York Ripper" (1982) Italian splatter maven Lucio Fulci directed this incredibly mean spirited, brutal slasher flick, where a duck voiced serial killer mutilates a bunch of Big Apple women, while a burned out NYPD detective trails behind. As usual for Fulci, things like a coherent plot and decent acting take a back seat to over the top, graphically violent gore and sleaze, which this film piles on by the bucketload. This one makes "Maniac" look like "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm."

Varan The Unbelievable (1958)

This is the original film entitled "Daikaiju Baran" and it has lovely subtitles, and the flight scenes where Varan spreads his wings and flies.  For years the American audiences watched a horribly butchered version, but this my friends, is the original film. Varan's only other appearance was in the ultimate monster bash from 1968, "Destroy All Monsters".

Frankenweenie (2012): A young boy named Victor Frankenstein uses scientific experimentation with lightning to bring back to life his beloved pet dog Sparky. This however has some unforeseen consequences for the town of New Holland when Victor's rival science project students set out to try and out do what he has done.

Very enjoyable weirdness from director Tim Burton with plenty of nods to other films primarily the Universal and Hammer Monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, the Mummy, Bride of Frankenstein)  but also nods to Gamera, Curse of the Fly, Gremlins, and even Jurassic Park. The Cat-Bat creature also brought to mind The Angry Red Planet even if it wasn't as large as the Bat-Rat-Spider-Crab. The science teacher notably also resembles Vincent Price very closely. Fun stuff but more for horror genre fans than non-fans I suspect. Good cast involved with the voice work here including Martin Landau, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, and Martin Short. You got to love any movie with as many monsters on the loose as this one if you're a monster movie fan...heck we even get mutated sea monkeys and a rampaging giant turtle. I'd give this ***1/2 out of ***** stars.

"Cheech & Chong: Hey, Watch This" (2010) Concert film shot during the reunited duo's "Light Up America' comeback tour features many of their most classic bits & characters, including Ralph & Herbie, Blind Melon Chitlin, Alice Bowie, and more.
 Funny stuff, the boys have still "got it."

Frankenstein's Army.

If I had known this was a "found footage" film, I wouldn't have watched it. This movie has everything going against it. There is no story. Most of the characters fail the "douchebag" challenge. There isn't even a plot.

But what the movie does have is monsters! The idea is that WWII troupe of Russian soldiers discover a secret lab run by a mysterious Dr. Frankenstein. Any time there is a lull in the plot, these amazing monsters show up! Just fantastic steampunk creations. Think of the "Big Daddy" from Bioshock, but more f**ked up.

Not a good movie, but the monsters were great. I recommend it.

Chickboxer (1992) - This is part of some "bad movie legends" or something thing. it had a lengthy intro they clearly spent time and money on that I ffed through. Unless your name is Mike Nelson I don't want to hear your jokes about the movie just start it.

This movie is several levels below acceptable. In a decent extra the guy explains they basically gave them the film box and the title and told them to make that movie. B movie queen Michelle Bauer graces the cover but only has a brief, albeit fantastic, cameo. The lead actress is sort of like Lena Dunham or something but more nondescript and really a rather odd choice for a female lead.

Chickboxer - akcja w wypożyczalni Small | Large


The script is filled to the brim with bad jokes. The karate class that some of the plot centers around is the greatest joke of all. A guy with a huge mullet and 4 other people are supposed to give us an impression of a Kobra Cai type school but it looks like a bunch of non athletes in a big empty room. Elliot Gould has more sex appeal than the lead guy. Art Garfunkel does. I'm just trying to think of ridiculous people here fill in your own.

Michelle Bauer's scenes are crazy. In one, she's casually sitting around wearing a totaly over the top hot pink 80's porn outfit. In another, she's totally nude in bed with a guy in a scene that has nothing to do with the movie and just stops.

All in all, a great action packed martial arts extravaganza!

SATAN'S SLAVE (1976): A young psychic woman goes to visit her distant relatives, who just happen to be devil worshiping necromancers. Other than the frequent Satanic ritual nudity, this talky English country manor horror is a bit of a bore. 2.5/5 on bad movie scale.

Funny you should mention this sort of movie with regard to British movies and ritual nudity...I remember another movie called "The Blood On Satan's Claw"that had a nude scene with a very young and very hot Linda Hayden.   A bit off topic, yes, but you got me at the nudity parts, and that got me to thinking of the lovely Ms. Hayden  hot
