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…

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.

Tweet review:

::RABBIT HOLE is rather stellar. Subtly brings the audience to an understanding of something we can/will/should never truly understand.::

Great film. Not the sob fest you might think it is. The Oscar should belong to Kidman. Seriously.

::ZONAD was wildly uneven but had some genuinely inspired funny bits. The boyfriend character rocked.::

Not consistently funny enough to really recommend but I really did love every second with the boyfriend character.
