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….

He’s a baaaaad muther-biter.

African Prince Mamuwalde (William Marshall) and his bride Luva (Vonetta McGee) visit Count Dracula (Charles Macaulay) to ask him to help them end slavery. Dracula thinks the Prince’s idea a really funny one and offers to buy Luva instead. When Prince Mamuwalde objects to this, Dracula bites him and chains his wife to the wall to teach him a lesson. Many centuries later, the contents of Dracula’s castle are sold and ‘Blacula’ is transported to the U.S. in his coffin.

Because, naturally, no one would look inside a heavy coffin before shipping it overseas….

And people say Twilight is gay…

Count Gaylord (Tim Kramer) and his servant Boris (Rand Remington) head to Los Angeles after one of the Count’s converts, the Marquis de Suede (Steve Collins) appears there. There’s a hell of a lot more gay sex than plot, which makes it a lot harder … tougher to discuss this one than usual. Not because there’s anything wrong with gayness, but when a film is 93% scenes of sexual activity, there’s painfully little plot left….

Lifeforce   Offscreen 2015 mini logo sci fi reviews horror The tits that ravaged Old London Town.

Col. Tom Carlsen (Steve Railsback) and his crew take the ESA space shuttle Churchill out to visit Halley’s comet. In the coma of the comet they find an alien spacecraft that contains bat-creatures corpses and three naked human-like creatures under glass (Mathilda May & Christopher Jagger & Bill Malin). Naturally, the astronauts remove these humans and take them back to their ship, but this, as it develops, is an error….

In a world overwhelmed by legions of vampires, atheist Gwen Waters (Pamela Karp) seeks out the former priest of her town – Father Joe Cahill (Douglas Gibson) – for help. The two of them work their way back to the town across a newly post-apocalyptic landscape to deal with the local head vampire, Father Alberto Palmeri (Marvin W. Schwartz). Unusual to say the least….

Drain them … wet?

Willamina Van Helsing (Erika Smith) is enlisted by her dead Uncle Abe Van Helsing (Bob MacKay) to slay Dracula’s daughter, Countess Dracula (Darian Caine). Since Willamina is completely unable to defeat the Countess, instead she allies with her in a move so diabolically intelligent and calculated that I’m certain she planned it in advance rather than it being the result of poor writers using it as a way to show a lot of women doing things to other women. After all, Seduction Cinema has standards….

The Last Man on Earth

The Last Man on Earth   lastmanonearth 82x120 full length movies Director: Ubaldo Ragona & Sidney Salkow
Writer: Richard Matheson (novel “I Am Legend”) & William F. Leicester
Release Year: 1964

Alive among the lifeless… alone among the crawling creatures of evil that make the night hideous with their inhuman craving!

An adaptation of the novel I Am Legend about a man trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, defending his home against hordes of zombie-vampires every night. There are many adaptations of this book and this is considered by many the best (the people with taste), which is not that surprising since it has Vincent Price instead of Will freakin’ Smith or Charlton cold dead hands Heston. And because the mood of the movie set by the desperation and loneliness of Morgan ofcourse. Also notice the similarities with Night of the Living Dead, released 4 years later.
