Forbidden World (1982) - Roger Corman's version of Alien.  An intergalactic bounty hunter dude gets a call from a remote genetic research laboratory - they've created a nasty little creature and oh golly gee, guess what it's doing now?  This movie doesn't really come within a country mile of being scary, but there are some rather gross special effects with half-dissolved people and stuff.  The characters are pretty good, except for one guy who's always coughing his brains out, that gets pretty annoying.  The main attraction is definitely the babes who work at the lab;  oh - my - god they're awesomely hot.  Lots of nudity in this movie as well  TeddyR  Sorry, but my rating may be a wee bit biased because of that.  4/5.

Using Claw's format:

Sea of Dust (2009)

A mythological crusader king possesses the bodies of 19th century Germans to manifest his sadistic religious ideology in this world.  An attempt to recreate a Hammer-type period atmosphere; full of terrible acting and a heavy-handed anti-religion message, but if you can make it through the first half this flick goes truly crazy and turns into one of those "dreams inside of dreams" mindbenders.  Decent gore effects.

October/Halloween score 3/5 for Exploding head, lots of bodices, finger-sucking, dagger-in-shoulder, axe blade through back of head and out front, hook through chin, dilated eyeballs on crucified Tom Savini, pitchfork through head, flagellation, surgery on a hollow Ingrid Pitt, reverse birth, spandex cat-woman urinating on torture victims, and dream sequences, dream sequences, dream sequences.

PG boobs are kinda rare. They look like normal boobs but PG boobs are only shown a few seconds  Wink
Plus these were also slightly 'obscured' with a red light.

10.05.



Evil Laugh (1988)

Med-students fixing up an old orphanage must face a masked killer. Cheesy Slasher ripping off Friday the 13th which comes to no surprise as the director played Joey in A New Beginning. Talk about influence!

Primal Rage (1988)

Escaped lab-ape infects people with deadly virus turning them into zombified madmen. Fun bloodletting and above average soundtrack makes this Rambaldi family offering a keeper!

Slaughterhouse of the Rising Sun (2005)

After a mental breakdown an actress joins a hippie-like group hanging out in the desert. They do drugs and talk about a House at the edge of the woods that supposed to be haunted. When The Manson Family meets Let's Scare Jessica To Death - entertaining 70s horror-homage that should please House of the Devil fans as well.

Boo (2005)

Four friends decide to hang out at a spooky old sanatorium on Halloween but evil spirits are spoiling their fun. Quality 'A' Indie Horror that is sadly overlooked. Solid genre effort delivering the goodies.

Watched Forbidden World again last night, this time on Blu ray - oh yeah, the Blu ray looks MUCH better than the DVD  TeddyR  Very sharp picture, much less hazy;  a bit grainy in spots, but anyone who's seen the DVD first won't mind that a bit.  The sound was mono though.  It was a clear and strong track, but jeez...most of my VHS tapes are in surround sound.  Get with the program already!

You also get a DVD of Mutant, which is the director's cut of Forbidden World.  Haven't watched that yet though.

10.08.



The Evil (1978)

The devil lives in the cellar of an old mansion trapping and killing a group of people with his supernatural powers. The Evil is actually The Legend of Hell House told from a different angle. Not perfect but entertaining enough.
October/Halloween score: 3.5/5 for including Haunted house theme, demonic possession, supernatural storm, animal attack, friendly ghost, electrocution, thick fog.

The Comeback (1978)

Retired pop singer is working on a new album but nightmares, ghastly moaning and a killer with a sickle puts him on the edge of sanity. Proto-Slasher with a few haunts. Pacing drags very though but overall a fun watch.
October/Halloween score: 3.5/5 for including cheesy singing in a studio, cross dressing shenanigans, creepy masked killer, elevator kill, hearty british breakfast, sex in a car.

Galaxy of Terror (1981) - A spaceship crew is dispatched to a remote planet to...I dunno.  I guess another ship has crashed there?  They find this giant pyramid and once they go inside, they start dying in ways that are apparently related to their own fears.  I would think it would be a good idea to stay away from the giant pyramid, since it results in so many deaths, but apparently this doesn't occur to them.  Whenever they find a body of someone from the crashed ship, they disintegrate it immediately.  They even disintegrate their own crewmates as soon as somebody dies.   Question  This is one of those movies that doesn't make a lick of sense.  I guess you're just supposed to go with it or something.  The characters are goofy - you've got Sid Haig as some sort of warrior dude who uses oversize throwing stars;  he just doesn't belong in this movie.  The captain of the spaceship is a nut who throws the thing into hyperdrive without telling anyone, then chuckles at them as they frantically try to fasten their seat belts.  The commander of the mission is a huge jerk, and then there's Mr. Hand from Fast Times at Ridgemont High;  he plays a cook who apparently is the only one who knows what the heck is going on.  Oh, and then there's Joanie from Joanie Love Chachi as some sort of psychic. 

The art direction in this movie is really excellent - the spaceship is cool looking, and the pyramid has some pretty spectacular interiors.  The sets are far better than this movie deserves as well.  Overall, a great looking movie that doesn't make any sense, and it's stupid.  3/5.

10.09.



The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009)

Two travelling girls in Europe get stuck in Germany, literally. At times funny but also uncomfortable "Naziploitation" (that's how it felt to me) with authentic german speaking. I quite enjoyed this.
October/Halloween score: 4.5/5 for including Mad scientist theme, german autobahn, scalpel stabbing, cell phone-fu, sleazy german driving mercedes benz.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Nancy has nightmares about a guy named Freddy Krueger. The rest should be familiar. This remake did change things around a bit but other than that it stayed pretty close to the original. Except for dropping the goat, which has always been a favorite of mine from the original's opening nightmare. Jackie Earle Haley was good.
October/Halloween score: 4/5 for including nightmare diner, funeral vision, in-and-out of dreams & reality, throat slitting, ceiling blood fountain.
