Remake This!: The Last House on the Left (2009)

 Letting Bob pick my next Review via RNG (or Random Number Generator) doesn't always work out. This is 2009's Remake of The Last House on the Left.  I've never seen the Original.  I know the drill though- Violent Revenge Film, based on people seeing violent imagery every day via Vietnam War News and Wes Craven. Speaking of Mr. Craven, he's a Producer here (alongside Friday the 13th Director/original Film Producer Sean S. Cunnigham) and wanted to see what could be done with more resources.  I mean...fair play- that's the argument made for many older Films (like those from th ..read more

Tubi Thursday: Severed Tied (1992)

 Another catch-up review, as I featured the German Box Art for this Film in 2019. How is the actual Film though? In this Fangoria-produced Film, a man is trying to replicate his dead Father's work. He is trying to make a plasmid to allow limbs to be regrown. It worked out for Curt Connors! His Mom (Elke Sommers- above) is controlling him, while Hans (Oliver Reed) has his own motivations! Can he make it work? Yes, although it comes at the cost of his left arm- which is cut off by a laser. He injects himself with the seemingly successful formula. He ends up with some kind-of crazy Ho ..read more

Riffed Films: The Demons of Ludlow (1983)

 In lieu of accidentally repeating content, let's cover a Film that I didn't even know about before Rifftrax. Bill Rebane is a name that only the most dedicated of cinephiles will know right away.  That or those who watched too much MST3K. Who am I kidding- they are the same people! Made famous for The Giant Spider Invasion, he also did (most of) Monster Go-go, The Alpha Incident, The Capture of Bigfoot (which Lloyd Kauffman lists as one of the WORST Films he ever distributed), Blood Harvest, Twister's Revenge (a Film I've owned as part of a 50-Movie Set and never watched...yet)  ..read more

Shudder Day: Destroy All Neighbors (2024)

 Am I watching enough Shudder content to justify paying for it every Month? Probably not, but I did check out this newer Film from them. Jonah Ray Rodrigues is back again in another Horror Comedy called... A man- Rodrigues- is working a Job as a Sound Engineer at a Record Company. His dream, however, is to create a brand new, transcendent Prog Rock Album. Too bad his Neighbors make things very difficult. This is especially true of Vlad (Alex Winter in disguise) who plays loud EDM, grunts and just generally is never quiet. All attempts to deal with this normally (well, normally for hi ..read more

King Me: Stephen King's The Stand (1994) *Part 4*

 A big finale is upon us! To see what happened in Part 1, go here. For Part 2, here. For Part 3, here. Now, let's get to Standing! Right off the bat, Flagg makes Harold crash his bike.  Nadine lives him. He offs himself the next day and that wraps up that Arc! Flagg can identify two of the Spies, but not the third. So, he needs his men to capture the ones he knows and get the information. His men accidentally kill The Judge (thanks for nothing, Ossie Davis) and he pops up to kill...Sam Raimi?!? For all my complaints about Flagg's absence in the last 3 parts, he more than makes ..read more

Tubi Thursday: Eye of the Needle (1981)
Mondo Bizarro

 A Film that both relates to this Anniversary AND to Star Wars. I'll get to the explanation for that later. This is the seminal Thriller called... Donald Sutherland is working for British Intelligence in 1940. Unfortunately (for his Housekeeper), he's also a spy. Get used to seeing him stab people with that knife (or needle). Four years later, he's assigned a big task- find out about Operation Overlord. That's D-Day, in case you missed the 100 Articles about it today. He gets his proof, but runs into trouble. More stabbing. Now he's got to get to Germany and his cover appears to be b ..read more

 Another look at a Post-Pandemic World where everyone has to live in the West. *Shudder* To see what happened in Part 1, go here. For Part 2, go here. The Episode begins with some random guy dying from...um, something. They have a Funeral for him, which is mostly there to introduce Ozzie Davis here as The Judge. His Wife played the prophetic Mother Abigail. We soon learn that Sinise and Ringwald became a Couple during the off-screen time jump presented here. She's also pregnant with his child. In the Book, she's pregnant BEFORE meeting him and they aren't a Couple, which is key for l ..read more

Tubi Thursday: Mimesis- Nosferatu (2018)

 I had Bob pick a letter- he chose M.  That gave me an excuse to review the 2018 Sequel to a 2011 Film I covered in 20132011 Film I covered in 2013. Like with Fear of Clowns 2, I was in no rush. A Cold Open has a woman- Kristy Swanson- is worried about her young son being obsessed with the 1922 Film Nosferatu. Sure- why not?!? He shaves his head, puts his fangs in and kills her! Some vague amount of time later, we see Lance Henriksen talk menacingly.  More on that later. At Harker University (get it?), a young woman wants to be Mina in the School Play- Dracula, duh- and not ..read more

Immediate Response: Furiosa- A Mad Max Saga

 A few days late on this one, but I made the time. Should you? The Good * The Film has all of the great style, details and world-building you expect from a Mad Max Film. * The Actresses playing Furiosa (since de-aging Charlize Theron would have been distracting) do a great job.  Anya Taylor-Joy is the main one and she's great at portraying so much with so little dialog. * Chris Hemsworth is great (again) as a Villain.  His Dementus is pure charismatic chaos.  I really want to see more of him. * A bunch of new Characters make the established world of Fury Road feel even mor ..read more

My Crazy Youth: The Time That H.G. Wells Wouldn't Let 'Lois & Clark' Consummate Their Marriage

 I spent a whole $1 on this DVD set, so let's get some content out of it! Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman was the first Superman program I saw- for better or worse. Thankfully, the Animated Series came out soon after to amp things up. So, this is Season 4 (aka the Final Season), so let's pick out a good Episode. This one has H.G. Wells...and a Sorcerer?  I'm in! In 'Soul Mates,' the duo are finally married (after many delays) and now they are ready for a Super Honeymoon.  What could go wrong? If you guessed 'H.G. Wells shows up,' then you...probably read the T ..read more
