I’ll confess, I was a little surprised when this film was chosen as a selection for the Sci Fi London Festival some years ago and learned that it had been made in Croatia. It’s true that world class movies are being made in more and more places these days. Still, it doesn’t seem that long […]Read more "The Show Must Go On (2010)"
The Seventies were a great era for TV movies. But I think I’ve mentioned that before. A family is off on vacation in the mountains, exploring a cave, when a mysterious flash fills the sky. The Father and his two children seem unaffected, but their guide dies not long afterwards and his body quickly turns […]Read more "Where Have All the People Gone? (1974)"
Firestarter as a romantic comedy? Well, yes, more or less. Although it is as much about the relationship between two feuding brothers as it is about the romantic triangle that kindles (sorry, you can’t help it with this sort of film) their long-smoldering (see what I mean?) resentment against each other. And I suppose it does […]Read more "Wilder Napalm (1993)"
So, we’re going to hire a mercenary to hunt down some…ummmmmm…“Mutant Androids” that are ten times stronger than a normal man, so naturally we’re going to hire the guy who is going to fight them with… His bare hands. I suppose it would make more sense if you knew this one was directed by Tim […]Read more "Mutant Hunt (1987)"
Let’s get this straight right now: the title of this film does not fit it at all. I have to wonder whether this is because its Korean title does not translate well. But one thing is clear: there are no ghosts on display here. Instead, we have a young man with a remarkable gift, who […]Read more "Cho-neung-ryeok-ja [Haunters] (2010)"
I’ll confess that the part of this film I enjoyed more than anything else was the film the official brilliant scientist, Professor Diaz, shows to his handpicked expedition crew, which shows what life was like in prehistoric times. We get a quick and truly wacky montage of fighting lizards with fins glued on from One […]Read more "Aventura al centro de la tierra [Adventure at the Center of the Earth] (1965)"
“…an Alternate Universe…” “…Like New Jersey?” This is officially the best line in the movie. You now have no reason to watch it. Really. I mean it. None whatsoever. Nada. Zip. Stay away from this thing. I watched this because someone said it was so bad it was good. Nope, Not a chance. Just bad. […]Read more "The Killer Eye (1999)"
