The Elp; A Creature of Legend (2022)

What is an Elp, you ask? Apparently, it’s some sort of local variant on the bigfoot, notable for its long claws, ferocious disposition and big feet. What’s worse, a recent series of murders in Farcical County looks suspiciously like the work of their local cryptid, and the new mayor calls in a small team of […]

Flesh Feast (1970)

Well, I wasn’t ready for that. Look, I’m sure most of you have seen a few really low-budget films along the way.  After all, when it comes to science fiction, there are a lot of them out there. And if you’ve seen a few of these films from the Sixties and Seventies then Flesh Feast […]

Death Run (1987)

Back in the Eighties, the world kept ending. However, it didn’t always have a big budget. It’s not hard to see that Mad Max and The Road Warrior inspired a lot of these films.  However, most of these post-Apocalyptic epics seemed to come out of Italy, with a few assorted examples from the U.S. and […]

The P.A.C.K. (1997)

I hate to say it, but the operative phrase here is “nice try.” It’s not like The P.A.C.K. is terrible.  Despite what had to have been a cripplingly low budget, low budget filmmaker David A. Prior made quite a respectable little action film which is, naturally, quite reminiscent of other films we’ve seen. But then […]

Konga TNT (2020)

And once again I watched a movie I was never, ever going to watch. Let’s face it: I’ve seen Brett Kelly’s movies before.  Well, to be precise, I’ve seen one of his movies, Raiders of the Lost Shark (2015), it just feels like I’ve seen a lot more of them because that one is so bad. […]

Decapitarium (2021)

(aka, Edgar Allen Poe’s Decapitarium) They seemed like such a happy couple. At least, that is, until Dr. Wilkinson accidentally blew up his wife’s body, leaving her a living head. Science can be so hard on your marriage. Particularly when your angry wife, in a fit of bodyless pique, decides to start killing people and […]

Reel Monsters (2022)

It must be something about Bigfoot. Here’s one of the best movies I’ve seen from The Polonia Brothers — the legendary Grade Z filmmakers who’ve made an incredible number of memorably bad but surprisingly addictive DIY shot on video films for well over thirty years.  It’s almost as good as Among Us (2004), which I consider […]

Dune World [Sand World] (2021)

Time for a grumpy old man rant: There is nothing in the realm of science fiction — whether in print, a movie, or even in comics form — which bugs the hell out of me more than having a future/alien/distant past society based around some notion which was obviously invented just to sound cool.  Or […]

The Brain Leeches (1978)

You have to admire his bravery. A lot of directors run away the moment anyone starts talking about their early work and it isn’t much of a surprise.  After all, most early efforts were made long before their creators had any clue what they were doing.  Most of them end up cringing the minute their […]
