AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD (1972): An ambitious Spanish conquistador slowly goes insane during an expedition down the Amazon, as Indians and infighting take thier toll on the band. Klaus Kinksi is unforgettably mad in this historical drama that plays like a jungle fever dream version of a Shakespearean tragedy. 5/5.

With the young'ins this evening on Netflix:

"Furry Vengeance" (2010)
Furry Vengeance - Official Trailer [HD]


While developers are bulldozing a forest to make a new suburban subdivision, the guy in charge encounters fierce resistance from some very determined raccoons, skunks, and bears in this cheap looking but occasionally funny kiddie comedy.

I almost felt sorry for Brendan Fraser while watching this. Remember when he was a buff, studly action hero type with his own franchise ("The Mummy")? Now he's middle-aged, out of shape and playing second banana to a bunch of CGI critters n a low budget kids' movie. If this is the best he can do nowadays, he needs a new agent.

"The Humanoid" (1979)
Scene from "The Humanoid" (1979) Small | Large


In this cheese-tastic Italian "Star Wars" wanna be, galactic bad guys turn a gentle star pilot (Richard Kiel, aka "Jaws" of James Bond fame) into a hulking mutant killing machine, planning to make him the first in a massive army of such "Humanoids." Unfortunately his memory slowly returns and he eventually starts fighting for the "good" guys instead.

The flick rips off "Star Wars" to an astounding degree - including its desert planet setting, a villain who looks so much like Darth Vader that it's damn near copyright infringement, a kid with mystical powers, and a cute robot. Oh, and lots of guys running around with laser guns going PEW PEW PEW of course. Hell, the director (Aldo Lado) is even credited as "George Lewis," presumably because it sounds kinda like "George Lucas."

This laughable craptacular was exactly what I needed as an antidote to a particularly sh*tty day. As Italian "Star Wars" ripoffs go, this makes Luigi Cozzi's "Star Crash" look like "2001: A Space Odyssey."

The whole movie is on YouTube if you want to subject yourself to it. Make sure you have at least a 12 pack of beer handy before you hit "play," cuz you're gonna need 'em!

The Being (1983)

During Easter holidays a small town in Idaho wants to ban filth and pornography but radioactive waste is causing much more trouble: a young boy named Michael has turned into a slime-oozing creature ripping townsfolk apart. A local sheriff and his waitress girlfriend are investigating.
Yet another monster movie filmed in the wake of Alien - The Being was actually filmed in 1979 but had to be shelved for several years. I am constantly on the fence with The Being, there are times I enjoy it more, and then less. I'd say about 60% outright sucks, the rest has its charms of B-movie film making: a creature that can change size and shape at will, bloody and fun f/x, solid cast (Michael Landau, Dorothy Malone, Ruth Buzzi), odd nightmares, a few unintentional laughs. A little more of that and The Being would have been a winner. 2.25/5

Trick 'r' Treat: A collection of interlinked short stories where people who don't celebrate hallowe'en get their comeupance. Directed by Brian Singer and featuring Brian Cox & Anna Paquin. I'd been looking for a copy of this movie for a couple of years (I love looking through old shops for stuff rather than just buying it online) and finally found it on a trip to Edinburgh. Possibly not worth years of searching, but I found it enjoyable.

Cannibal Holocaust. I thought this was a film I'd been looking for that I'd seen when I was much younger. Turned out this is an entirely different thing. Apparently there were a lot more films made about people being hunted and killed by cannibals in the 70s & 80s than I ever suspected. Despite it having a lot of nudity, its not one I would recommend.

There's Nothing Out There (1991) - watched this again, it's a favorite of mine. Some kids go to a house in the woods and are attacked by a cheesy little green alien dude. The characters were a lot of fun, most of the horror stuff was good for a laugh; it's a nice little slice of bad movie heaven Smile 4/5.

VAMPYR (1932): A young traveler comes to a small German town infested by a vampire plague. The least-seen vampire classic, this nightmarish early talkie from silent film master Carl Theodore Dreyer is much stranger, and scarier, than 1931's DRACULA. 4.5/5.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Tonight I watched a new release horror DVD called MUCK.  It was one of the more frustrating horror films I have ever watched - too good to be dismissed as a bad movie, but too choppy and incomplete to really be called a good movie.

A group of twentysomethings come stumbling out of a marsh on Cape Cod, fleeing a horrific experience that has left one of them dead and another grievously wounded.  They come to an abandoned house, and the uninjured guy goes to get help, leaving the three women - one of them his fiancée - to tend to his wounded companion.  He stumbles his way into town, coming to a bar where locals are drinking and partying to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and borrows a phone from one of the women there to call his cousin - he's reluctant to call the cops because he and his friends broke into the house.  His cousin, out partying with two young lovelies, agrees to come pick them up and sets out after a few drinks.

The first guy goes back to the house and finds out that albino mutant rapists have killed nearly everybody in his absence.  His girl's bloodied, nude form is thrown through the window of the house at him when he gets back, and dies in his arms.  Albino mutants are everywhere, and it's a battle for survival that ultimately leads the last three survivors back to the marsh they fled from at the beginning of the movie!

No explanations whatsoever, and no satisfactory ending.  Just tons of gore and gratuitous nudity (I refuse to believe that showing THAT many boobs was necessary to the plot!!) and folks running around yelling at each other and killing albino mutants with pitchforks in the . . . wait for it . . . MUCK!

In short, this movie was worth the rental but rather frustrating at the same time. 3.5/5

Had a read at your review. Generally speaking, I'd have to agree with you.

'71 (2014): In Belfast in 1971, a British soldier is separated from his unit and trapped in IRA controlled territory overnight, where rival factions have very different ideas about how to deal with him. Since the political details are now stale and the sides are arbitrary (everyone is corrupt), we can focus on the suspense, and on the innocent soldiers plight as a pawn in a conflict in which he has no real stake. 3.5/5.

THE ABCS OF DEATH 2 (2014): A second round of 26 short-short horror films, each from a different director and based on an assigned letter of the alphabet. Knowing what's expected of them, the shorts are smoother and less experimental this time out, with fewer highs and fewer lows and lots of comic entries designed to climax in (usually dumb) punchlines. Highlights are Robert Morgan's surreal stop-motion animation "D is for Deloused" and  Hajime Ohata's "O is for Ochlocracy," which actually finds a new spin on the vastly overdone zomcom genre. 2.5/5.

Contagion (1987)

While on his way home from work real estate agent Mark tries to prevent a crime but becomes the victim instead. After recovery his girlfriend notices odd behavior, and he has changed indeed: Mark is now drawn to a huge mansion located in the outback that belongs to a rich older guy and his two sexy "live-ins." Mark's fascination with his new friends and lifestyle becomes an obsession leaving a trail of dead bodies behind...
Little seen 'modern' Australian slasher with a huge dose of the psychological - is Mark interacting with ghosts or is he delusional? Contagion appears multi-layered but isn't really that smart. Still, I kind of enjoyed this. Things to look out for: masked male rapist sleaze, nudity, small flying aircraft POV footage and a song that sounds like a Instrumental version of Ghostbusters on heavy rotation. 2.75/5

Bloody Moon (1981)

Angela (Olivia Pascal) arrives in Spain to study foreign languages at a boarding school / resort. Soon enough she becomes the center of attention for:
Miguel - creepy & disfigured co-owner of the school.
Alvaro - handsome teacher with shady intentions.
Antonio - oversexed Student.
Bueno - more or less mildly retarded caretaker.
When mutilated corpses pile up its hard to pinpoint a suspect so Angela has to continue to fear for her life.
Jess Franco slasher, so expect: cheesy / awkward dialogue & acting, bloody but corny f/x and a surprisingly catchy soundtrack score. 3/5
Trivia: German financed, filmed in Spain with the intention to push Olivia Pascal's back then popularity in Germany. Olivia who? She was the queen of teen magazines and has already established herself in a series of fairly successful low brow sex-comedies in the late 1970s. Olivia also dabbled in music, releasing a single in 1981.

Last night I watched a HORRIBLE vampire film called TEETH AND BLOOD.
Bad acting, bad plot, no significant gore, no nudity, no redeeming features -
two cops go undercover to investigate the murder of an actress at a Hollywood
film studio, and discover the studio is run by vampires.  That's about it.

Apocalypse Pompeii (2014) - watched this on SyFy last night.  A guy goes to Italy for a business meeting and meanwhile his wife and daughter go to tour the ruins of Pompeii.  They picked a bad day for that as it turns out, because Mt. Vesuvius decides to erupt again.  Luckily the daughter has read lots of books about volcanoes and knows what to do (which unfortunately consists mostly of taking shelter in buildings and...sitting there).  As you might expect, dad is a former special forces guy (who really should spend less time at the gym and more in acting class) so he rounds up some old military buddies and mounts a rescue attempt.  

This was a bit less exciting than you might expect a cataclysm to be,  but the characters were okay and you had plenty of the usual chuckle-inducing special effects.  Dad's rescue mission was also full of laughably over-the-top stuff.  John Rhys-Davies put in an appearance and seemed to be having his usual good time.  I had no problem staying awake through it (of course I was switching over to the MMA fights during the commercials) so I guess that's worth a 2.5/5.
