It makes sense, I swear, but where are the luchadores?

Alabama (Christopher Brooks) finds the magician gear formerly owned by Carter the Great (E. Kerrigan Prescott) in the basement of a nightclub and decides to become a magician. He seeks out Granny (Ken Grantham) to find out about Carter, then goes to Moxie (also Ken Grantham) to learn magic and becomes Alabama, King Of The Cosmos. He goes on tour and soon we get vampires, a Nazi mad scientist, and some voodoo, plus a script that looks like it was co-written by Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds….

Alabamas Ghost   Alabamas Ghost 3 300x227 reviews horror Using a magic act to control the world is an odd idea to say the least, and the vampires involved are pretty odd. Otto Max (Steven Kent Browne) – vampire agent to the stars – wishes to use the magical Nazi drug – created by Nazi scientist Dr. Caligula (Karen Ingenthron) – to take over the world. Now, these aren’t your garden-variety vampires as they seem to have bitten Henry Ford or something as these vamps feed by biting victims on an assembly-line. That’s weird. It does nicely cover up the terrible special effects that resemble nothing so much as folks smearing lipstick all over each other.

Alabamas Ghost   Alabamas Ghost 2 300x227 reviews horror This is one of those films that doesn’t make a whole hell of a lot of sense on first viewing. Or second viewing. Or third viewing. After that, I gave up and let it flow over me like the urine from an expensive hooker. My guess is that this is another film that was made by taking several scripts and shuffling them together after throwing away some of the pages at random then passing the whole through a blender. This is not a film to be reviewed, but one that has to be experienced instead … maaaaaan.

Still, it’s fun in a goofy sort of way.
