A giant glowing ball from Outer Space falls to earth, then rolls over people, reducing them to people-shaped piles of ash. Which makes this one sound far more interesting than it really is. After a brief, narrated introduction about its legendary arrival as a ball of fire from the sky — an arrival there couldn’t […]Read more "The Cremators (1972)"
I have a confession to make: I watched this one because the Landmaster (from Damnation Alley) appears in it. And, yeah, that is probably one of the main reasons to watch this one. Although it really isn’t that bad. This one is yet another film from Fred Olen Ray. He made an absurd number of super […]Read more "Hybrid (1997)"
There is an endearing, if slightly scruffy, charm to the films Roger Corman produced back in the Fifties. This one was actually produced by his brother Gene, who also provided the story. Roger’s generally listed in film guides as a producer although, as with Gene’s Beast from Haunted Cave, he remains unlisted in the credits. […]Read more "Night of the Blood Beast (1958)"

It starts off sensibly enough: a group of evil poachers are out in a wildlife refuge stealing rare eggs, a famous but vain singer plans to take a wilderness camping trip with his engineer and his bevy of beautiful backup singers, and a meteor […]Read more "Extra Terrestrial Visitors [Los nuevos extraterrestres] (1983)"
Andrew Bellware is one of those directors who intrigues me. I’m not saying he’s a great director, or that he’s made any incredibly great films. No, all I’m willing to say at this point is that he’s made several massively cheap SF films which are strange enough and have so many ideas that they stand […]Read more "Millennium Crisis (2007)"
And then there’s Klaus Kinski… Klaus earned the reputation for being a great actor thanks largely to a number of impressive films he did with Werner Herzog, most notably Aguirre: The Wrath of God. Part of his fame, I suspect, had as much to do with the stories of the epic battles between actor and […]Read more "Creature [Titan Find] (1985)"
