From the director of the infamous MYSTICS IN BALI comes this far superior film about an ancient evil queen possessing the body of an anthropology student. She goes on a murderous rampage (TERMINATOR style) in one ridiculous scene after another. It’s entertainment on a mythical level. Always a pleasure to watch and share with newbies.

This is a classic example of why I need to keep up with my write-ups. I kept looking at this title on my master spreadsheet and wondering, “What the HELL is this?!” Turns out, after I looked at the cast list, I do remember moments of this film. But I can’t remember if I slept through parts of it or if it was so plodding that I just erased it from my memory. I suspect it’s a combination of the two. Whatever the case may be, a movie starring Aldo Ray, Neville Brand, John Carradine and Julie Newmar shouldn’t be this boring but apparently it was. The plot had something to do with some mechanics who kidnap teenagers to feed to alien vampires. Yeah. That must be it…

Loved this movie in theaters, a perfect cap to the trilogy. I was excited to get a chance to review the Blu-ray. Check out some of my thoughts on the movie and the disc over at Gordon and the Whale!

DOLLS (1987)

Stuart Gordon directs my worst nightmare. I’m deathly afraid of dolls and I wanted to challenge myself and get a good scare on Halloween. It worked as usual. This super dark fairytale clocks in at a brisk 77 minutes, every single of them oozing with atmosphere and incredible doll effects. Makes my skin crawl!

RETARDEAD (2008)

It was years ago that we watched MONSTURD at Horror Movie Night and actually had quite a blast. I remember rumors that the makers were making a new movie called RETARDEAD but forgot about it… Until now. The movie is actually a sequel to MONSTURD and is actually pretty fun. You have to have a certain type of fortitude to stomach this micro-budget stuff but if you do, this is one of the better ones. The evil Dr. from MONSTURD wants to make a group of mentally challenged people smart with some serum and it turns them into zombies. It’s “Flowers for Algernon” for the horror crowd.

When this movie came out in 1988 my dad promised to take me to see it if got straight A’s. Well I did but something happened, scheduling, business, etc. and we never made it to the theater. 22 years later, I finally got to see this in 35mm as part of kids club. And I felt like a kid again. I’ve watched this movie dozens of times on DVD through the year but on the big screen it’s magical. This is Burton’s peak, everything works.

Bonus: I ate my first corndog ever on this day!

Had the “privilege” of seeing this again Master Pancake style. The guys did their best to tear this one apart and I had some fun. I think it might have been a little bit MORE fun when we watched this as a drinking game earlier in the year. At least I could should inappropriate things at Bella.
