A Bucket Of Blood

A Bucket Of Blood   abucketofblood 81x120 full length movies Director: Roger Corman
Writers: Charles B. Griffith (screenplay)
Release year: 1959

The Picture That’ll Make You… sick sick SICK with Laughter!

The movie begins with a horrible beatnik poet reciting some terrible poetry and that made me almost put it off to watch The Incredible 2-Headed Transplant instead. But hey, since I watched the first minute, I might as well view the next 64. And I’m glad I did, ’cause it’s a pretty damn good black comedy.

Addicttron / All Circuits Go

Addicttron / All Circuits Go   addicttron robo 150x110 video

Bart de Melker (aka Brat P. Milk) is a Belgian experimental filmmaker active in various fields as an animator, graphic designer and VJ.

Due to the affinity we feel with his oeuvre so far, we take some humble pride & pleasure in presenting his first two independently produced shortfilms, All Circuits Go (2004) and Addicttron (2007).

Using the art & crafts of stop-motion, Bart de Melker creates an abstract universe inhabited by absurd robotics and possessed technology gone awry. Two short tales about charmingly eerie Animatronics from the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids.

Yes, we just made that last line up ourselves.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!    Attack of the Killer Tomatoes poster 2 84x120 sci fi reviews horror comedy Director: John De Bello
Writer
: John De Bello, C.J. Dillon, Steve Peace & Rick Rockwell
Release Year
: 1978

NOM NOM NOM!

Tomatoes have turned evil and are eating people. Jim Richardson (George Wilson) is charged to stop this menace and so brings in Mason Dixon (David Miller) and his team, led by Lt. Wilbur Finletter (Rock Peace), to do the deed. Cub reporter Lois Fairchild (Sharon Taylor) gets involved trying to warn the public about the horrors, but instead becomes a part of everything. If this sounds stupid, it is absolutely stupid, cheerfully and gleefully stupid, so stupid that it votes for the Silly Party candidate, and, as such, is a really fun farce….

Black Snake

Thursday, February 25th, 2010 by Perfesser Deviant -

Black Snake   Black Snake poster 82x120 reviews comedy action Director: Russ Meyer
Writers: Russ Meyer & Leonard Neubauer based on a story by Anthony-James Ryan
Release Year: 1973

Despite the title, it’s not an all-black porno.

Sir Charles Walker (David Warbeck) goes undercover on the island plantation of Lady Susan Walker (Anouska Hempel) to find his missing brother Jonathan (David Prowse). He quickly finds the plantation is a horrible place, ruled with an iron fist by Lady Walker through her men: the extremely racist – and very white – overseer Joxer Tierney (Percy Herbert) and the cultured, homosexual, strict military commander – who’s very black – Capt. Raymond Daladier (Bernard Boston). The situation is ripe for rebellion, and this nice young man might well be the catalyst that makes it all happen….

Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark

Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark   Elvira dvdCR 85x120 reviews horror comedy Director: James Signorelli
Writer:
Sam Egan, John Paragon and Cassandra Peterson
Release year:
1988

She’s hot, vulgar… and out for money!

Come to think of it… Given what this website is called, there’s simply no way we can go around Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, without at least giving her a wink (or a tip of the hat if we should happen to wear one). Almost 30 years ago, Cassandra Peterson started her acting career as Elvira. And ever since, she has been bringing a lot more terrific cards to the B-horror table than just her twin ace material. There, since I figured nobody would forgive me if I would not include at least one boob-joke in this review, I’m glad we got that out of the way. Now let’s get down to Elvira’s legacy of the macabre, more specifically this fine highlight, her first feature length film.

I Drink Your Blood   cover1 90x120 reviews horror Director: David E. Durston
Writer
: David E. Durston
Release Year
: 1970

And together, we’ll all freak out.

1970. The United States was at the height of the Vietnam War. The Ohio National Guard were sent to Kent State University after the ROTC building was burned down; opening fire on students protesting U.S. invasion of Cambodia. Four students are killed. A similar event happened at Jackson State University which claimed two lives. The Apollo program was abandoned. Charles Manson released his album “Lies” to finance his criminal defense. The Ford Pinto was introduced. Four California Highway Patrol officers were killed in one day…making 1970 the deadliest year in California law enforcement history. Monday Night Football premiered. And a movie was released to unsuspecting grindhouses and drive-ins that would change exploitation forever… I Drink Your Blood.

Maniac   Maniac Anchor bay DVD 84x120 reviews horror Director: William Lustig
Writer: C. A . Rosenberg and Joe Spinell
Release Year: 1980

Every time you go out this kind of thing happens.

A woman has her throat sliced as she was waiting for her boyfriend on an empty beach. When the boyfriend returns, a hulking figure attacks him from behind and garrotes him off of the ground. Frank (Joe Spinell) wakes up screaming and sweaty. It was only a nightmare. He begins to rock himself back and forth to gather his bearings. It is apparent that Frank has some serious mental issues… and we are only three minutes into the film.

Morak, The Destroyer!

Oh dear, where to begin? I laughed pretty hard with that sequence where the guy’s about to commit suicide and then calls it off because he’s running late for work. But this film is not a comedy. It’s an alledged shock feature that seems to start off as a tame rape/revenge kind of deal, but very quickly heads off in a slightly more supernatural direction, doing anything but firmly pedalling along. And like any child learning how to ride a bicycle can tell you; when you loose pedals and fall on your ass, it hurts.
