Brain Damage (1988)

  I distinctly remember renting Brain Damage on vhs when I was in junior high. I saw it at the video store and honestly thought the movie was going to star Jeff Goldblum because of the box art. I also knew it was going to have a monster in it and I’ve always loved creature […]

Wolfguy: Enraged Lycanthrope (1975)

I have to be honest and say that before Arrow Video put this movie out, I had never heard of it. The cover art plus the title plus Sonny Chiba attracted my attention and I was excited to check out this slice of 70’s action. Wolfguy: Enraged Lycanthrope come from the same director as Sister […]

VHS Massacre (2017)

I grew up in the glory days of small video stores with shelves stacked with wonderful (and terrible) films for me to salivate over. As a kid i spend my summers watching stacks of VHS tapes picked out from the local mom & pop video store so of course i’m a sucker for vhs era […]

Psychomania (1973)

I’ll be honest with you: I’m not a fan of biker movies. I’ve seen a very small number of them but i’m certainly not in the cult of motorcycles. I think motorcycles are neat and all but the exploitation films of the 60’s and 70’s usually leave me cold. The idea just doesn’t float my […]

The Search for Weng Weng (2016)

The world of exploitation cinema is a wild and weird on as we all know. The history of the strange side of cinema from the around the world is filled with unique individuals but one of the most unique is Weng Weng. Star of several films made in the Philippines in the late 70’s and […]

Dolemite (1975)

Over the years I have seen plenty of Blaxploitation flicks. My favorite are the ones starring Fred “The Hammer” Williamson. The films are often lots of fun and give a peak into a place and time unique to the films. Dolemite is a flick I’ve always wanted to check out but for multiple reasons I […]

Creature Feature: Nature Turned Nasty In The Movies (2014)

Growing up as movie obsessed youth I cut my teeth on Harryhausen dynamation epics, action movies, and whatever monster flick my folks would let me put my hands on. As I grew older I moved on to more grotesque films and pursued the goriest of the gory and the most over the top action films […]

Video Spinegrinder (2015)

I watch a lot of movies. On a year basis I watch over 500 films. By most people’s standards, that’s a lotta films. Honestly I’m often embarrassed when asked how many films I watch in a year. Sometimes it even depresses me a bit when i start to add up the hours and realize what […]

Theme ’70 (2015)

The world of zines was one that passed me by I’m afraid. I grew up in a small town and I don’t remember ever seeing any funky cool zines at local shops. In fact, during the 90’s and 00’s there wasn’t the emphasis on local that there is now. It was all about big corporate […]

So Bad, So Good 2: Electric Bookaloo (2015)

A few weeks ago I got my hands on So Bad, So Good, a book covering over 50 films perfect for a bad movie night with friends. I love that kind of stuff and regularly watch cheesy flicks. In fact, I’m an aficionado of the stuff. I really enjoyed that book (I read it in […]
