It was OK. See the review for why it didn’t do it for me.
Post-apocalyptic Army deserters hole up in an abandoned laboratory which also happens to be home to a slimy, carnivorous mutation. Hilarity ensues.
This so-'80s-it-hurts video store favorite is pretty much "Alien" on a cheese-and-crackers budget, with cheap sets (the "lab complex" looks suspiciously like a self-storage warehouse) and even cheaper creatures and special effects. It's so bad, it's almost good.
Fun fact: a few years after appearing in this flick, actress "Kim McKamy" would become better known as '90s adult video queen Ashlyn Gere. I suppose if "Creepozoids" represents the type of "legit" movie roles she was getting, a porn career may actually have been a step up.
"Trilogy Of Terror" (1975)
Dan "Dark Shadows" Curtis directed this "Twilight Zone"-ish made-for-TV horror anthology, featuring three spooky stories written by Richard "I Am Legend" Matheson. Karen Black appears in all three tales, playing different characters each time - a teacher being blackmailed by a student, a pair of feuding sisters, and a woman being chased through her high-rise apartment by a killer cursed African doll. She achieved instant cult-icon status thanks to that third segment, which scared the hell out of an entire generation of '70s kids. This "Trilogy" is lots of fun and still holds up pretty well today.
I'm watching Halloween 3: season of the witch on the horror channel right now. Its a good few years since I've seen it last. I remember really liking this one. Not really part of the Halloween franchise (no Michael Myers) but it's all the better for it.
Super Troopers 2
Django Unchained directed by Quentin Tarantino with Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz och Leonardo DiCaprio.
In The Electric Mist - Terrible - Can't believe I was watching a couple of A-listers in a B movie!!
Dr. Strangelove on Criterion Blu-ray. Fantastic.
Jennifer Garner kicking ass is always a beautiful sight to see!
I liked it a lot. Surprised there is not a thread.
'The Four Feathers' (1939) on the big screen. Great entertainment for boys of all ages.
The Autopsy of Jane Doe - creepy as hell!
Bird Box. That’s 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back. Me nor the wife liked it.
The Devil's Backbone - Good film
sort of feel the same way, but I don't want my 2 hours back...
brutally creeeepy! we enjoyed this. It did the job intended...
have it on DVD...yes.
Just watched Good Morning Vietnam on 16mm! I was especially excited to win this on ebay as it was one of my dad's favorite movies, he was in Nam, and I inherited his films and projectors after he passed away. He would been over the moon to have this film!
I'm just now trying to figure out how to hook up my projector to my stereo system. The little mono PA speaker in the projector kind of sucks.
Last night, I watched "High Rise" (2015)with Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons and Elizabeth Moss, based on a J.G. Ballard novel. It wasn't flawless, but I found its retro-futurist dystopian vision to be compelling. It also had a killer soundtrack, featuring the likes of Can, Amon Duul II, Portishead and The Fall.
"Trilogy Of Terror" (1975) on BD? if so how does it look?
An amazing performance from Peter Falk, certainly deserves his name on
the cover after all these years.
I watched it on Amazon Prime, dunno if it's on blu-ray.
