A dedicated student at a medical college and his girlfriend become involved in bizarre experiments centering around the re-animation of dead tissue when an odd new student arrives on campus. (104 mins.)
Director: Stuart Gordon
“ Reanimated corpses, detached heads, headless bodies. Major blood and guts! Stewart Gordon's ultimate comedy of horrors, with the great Jeffery Combs and of course the sexy Barbara Crampton! ” - Freddy Atkins
 
2.
Bride of Re-Animator (1989)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
Doctors Herbert West and Dan Cain discover the secret to creating human life and proceed to create a perfect woman from dead tissue. (96 mins.)
Director: Brian Yuzna
“ Yes, a sequel. One more time, best thing since Bride of Frankenstein! Watch one and two together for the ultimate gorefest! ” - Freddy Atkins
 
3.
The Return of the Living Dead (1985)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
When two bumbling employees at a medical supply warehouse accidentally release a deadly gas into the air, the vapors cause the dead to rise again as zombies. (91 mins.)
Director: Dan O'Bannon
“ Another comedy horror, from some of the original "Night" people. Hysterical parody of the zombie films. Most people today like "Shawn of the Dead", and forget about this one. Zombies run, and talk and cast is insane. Great punk rock soundtrack too. I saw this in Chicago when it first opened on a double bill with "Re-Animator", the audience was screaming with delight, so was I. ” - Freddy Atkins
 
4.
Forbidden Zone (1980)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
The bizarre and musical tale of a girl who travels to another dimension through the gateway found in her family's basement. (74 mins.)
Director: Richard Elfman
“ Created by Richard and Danny Elfman of "Oingo Boingo" fame. This is a B&W musical made to show what the Mystic Knights show was all about. A bizarre fantasy trip with Herve Villechaize and Susan Tyrell as king and queen of the fifth dimension with a frog butler, topless princess,chicken boy, and machine gunning teacher. This one is addicting for all the wrong reasons, except the music! ” - Freddy Atkins
 
5.
Zeisters (1986)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2.2/10 X  
Two brothers befriend an escaped mental patient "the fat guy") and accompany him on his misadventures in the big city. (78 mins.)
Director: John Golden
“ Well, I know this one by another title. "Fat Guy Goes Nutsoid" It's the story of a drug dealer and his brother who works at a camp for retarded adults. The drug dealer gets out on parole, and decides to stay with his brother at the camp. The adults at the camp get a hold of his drugs and freak out, (yes),the camp leader finds out what happened and fires the brother. Upon leaving they discover that one of the retarded adults has escaped, and is following them. They try to get rid of this guy, they call him the "Mooka", but wherever they go, he follows. This movie is freakin' hilarious for all the wrong reasons, including puking, dancing at a club, and crashing a wedding. Made by the Troma team, who made "The Toxic Avenger" among others. I can't even imagine what the budget was! ” - Freddy Atkins
 
6.
Redneck Zombies (1989)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.3/10 X  
A barrel of radioactive waste is lost out in the woods. Some demented rednecks find it and use it as part of their still. Everybody who drinks from the liquor they produced turns into a zombie. (84 mins.)
Director: Pericles Lewnes
“ Another "no budget" silly flick from the Troma team. A group of campers get mixed up with a bunch of rednecks who's still fills with toxic sludge and turns the whole family into flesh eating zombies. This one has no redeeming value. The cast does seem to be enjoying themselves tho, maybe there was a working still on the set. Highlights include a old woman and her pet pig, an LSD trip, and a visit by the Tobacco man. Crazy, but fun party flick! ” - Freddy Atkins
 
7.
From Beyond (1986)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A group of scientists have developed the Resonator, a machine which allows whoever is within range to see beyond normal perceptible reality. But when the experiment succeeds, they are immediately attacked by terrible life forms. (86 mins.)
Director: Stuart Gordon
“ Another one from director Stewart Gordon. I remember him from his early days in Chicago at the Organic Theater. Jeffery Combs again at his crazy best. This one has it all, sex, shock, and satire!!! This one adapted from the macabre works of HP Lovecraft (as was Reanimator).
The resonator is a machine created by a doctor, which can control the sixth sense. It kills the doctor, and investigators arrive to find out what happened. It can't be shut off, and effects everyone who encounters it. Featuring Dawn of the Dead's Ken Foree, and a sexy in leather, Barbara Crampton. This is a wild one! ” - Freddy Atkins
 
8.
The Omega Man (1971)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
Army doctor Robert Neville struggles to create a cure for the plague that wiped out most of the human race. (98 mins.)
Director: Boris Sagal
“ One of my favorite Charlton Heston films that he made in the early 1970's. A remake of Vincent Price's The Last Man on Earth, and Richard Matheson's, I Am Legend. Heston is Neville, a survivor of a plague ridden world. Stalked by the family, people who were spawned by the plague, he meets Lisa, another survivor, (played by Rosalind Cash) who guards some healthy children, humanity's only hope for survival. Co-starring Anthony Zerbe as the leader of the family. Heston makes this one work, cool flick! ” - Freddy Atkins
 
9.
Soylent Green (1973)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
In the world ravaged by the greenhouse effect and overpopulation, an NYPD detective investigates the murder of a big company CEO. (97 mins.)
“ Heston hits the Sci- Fi genre again with this one, a futuristic thriller about over-population gone bad, in the year 2022. Heston is Thorne, a detective trailing a murderer, which leads to a shocking conclusion. Again, Heston gets to say another famous last movie line, which will always be remembered. Soylent Green is........With Joseph Cotten , Chuck Connors, and Edward G. Robinson, in his last screen appearance. ” - Freddy Atkins
 
10.
Logan's Run (1976)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
An idyllic sci-fi future has one major drawback: life must end at the age of 30. (119 mins.)
“ I saw this one at the theater when I was eleven. I didn't think I would ever get over it. It really got to me then, I still love it today. It's set in the year 2274, where everything is perfect, until you reach lastday. That's when you have your 30th birthday, and must attend Carrousel, to reach your rebirth, unless you decide to run instead. Logan 5 is Michael York, a sandman who pursues runners to terminate them. Logan is approaching 30 himself. Cool special effects and one of the first to use Dolby Surround sound. It won a special achievement award for visual effects. Farrah Fawcett's first screen appearance. This is a fun movie to watch, especially in today's world of CGI effects. ” - Freddy Atkins
