Junk: Shiryô-gari [Junk] (2000)

A group of thieves carry out a daring jewel robbery, and go to meet their fence in a deserted factory. Unfortunately, they don’t realize that the gangster they’re dealing with plans to rob them. Or that the United States Army has been conducting some rather nasty off-the-books experiments in that old factory. Which, unfortunately, have […]

Piranha 3DD (2012)

(aka, Piranha DD) You know how it goes. Someone out there recommends a film as a wild exploitation movie which is pure fun (this time around, I believe it was Mauler on one of his E.F.A.P. podcasts) and you actually go out and watch the thing.

City of Rott (2006)

I then caught his feature film, Shock Invasion (2010), a gleefully black […]

Under the Mountain (1981)

A TV series from New Zealand was shown in the United States? And only two years after it ran back home? I suppose stranger things have happened. Of course, at the time, Nickleodeon was still in its earliest stages, and desperate for low priced children’s shows to present.  One of their offerings was The Third […]

DeepStar Six (1989)

I’ll admit it, I like this one. But then, that may not be an entire surprise as by now you’ve probably noticed that I’m a sucker for a halfway decent B Monster movie. Oh, I know, it didn’t do that well at the theaters, and a lot of people don’t like it.  There’s even a […]
