What the *(BLEEP)* did I just watch????? There are no words to describe this film. Seriously. We’ve got grainy black and white nonsense about aliens visiting the small Canadian town of Grand Bosh (really Dresser, Wisconsin, but I can understand why no one wanted to admit it), which somehow drags in all sorts of strange […]Read more "It Came from Somewhere Else (1988)"
There’s one reason to see this film, and that’s the very cool, pedal-powered Aerojet MiniSub the hero tools around in. Well, that’s really not true, either. There is one reason to see this film and it is that it is the first film Roger Corman ever produced. No, it’s that it’s directed by the one and only Wyott […]Read more "Monster from the Ocean Floor (1954)"
The setting? “The Present Day.” Only it is somewhere unspecified in the past, when teenagers still wore their jeans with the cuffs rolled up and Atomic waste still mutated unwary victims into horrible monsters. Probably the Fifties, right? For those of you even slightly familiar with the work of Christopher R. Mihm and his “Mihmiverse”, […]Read more "The Monster of Phantom Lake (2006)"

This isn’t the version of The Whisperer in Darkness the HPLHS released in 2011. And I should note, it isn’t as good. This is, of course, one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most famous stories – and with good reason. The story starts with hints of something strange and monstrous, gradually becomes creepier, before finally ending on a horrific […]Read more "The Whisperer in Darkness (2007)"
One of the ways to tell just how cheap a film is is to look for how many close-ups there are. It is much harder to set up a close-up than a medium or long shot, it takes longer and therefore is more expensive. So what does it say when you have a movie without […]Read more "Teenagers Battle the Thing (1958)"
Once again, we’re back to the land of the MST3K, for what has to be one of the most threadbare post-Apocalyptic movies ever made. After all, it’s set in New York City, with the famous skyline still intact behind all the ruined buildings where everything else takes place. And, yes, that includes the World Trade Center!
