The Brain Leeches (1978)
The best movie I've never seen...
This is easily the greatest film that I will never, ever see...unless of course Mr. Ray releases it one of these days. In fact, the question I have is: Is The Brain Leeches a better film than my own Attack of the Bathroom Creature? I probably wouldn't bet on it, but they seem to have several things in common. 1. both have great titles, yet, horrible plots and terrible acting; 2. the first was directed by Fred Olen Ray, who has gone on to become of the greatest film directors of all-time, and the latter was directed by Eric Spudic, who has since not sold a single script and still dreams of directing his first film for a studio. Oh well, that's all I have to say...
Chopping Mall (1986)
A robot remake of Dawn of the Dead.
This is one of Wynorski's finest pictures. Right from the goofy opening, this movie is very exciting and doesn't ever get boring. Obviously, the people who made this had a very fun time and that shows in the finished product. Sort of a killer robot version of the classic, Dawn of the Dead. The background music is very hokey, too, but memorable and perfect for this genre. It's time some humor came along at this period of time for the horror genre. Lots of memorable dialogue, plenty of action, and I'm sure you'll have a fun time watching this. I know I did.
American Rampage (1989)
Nice squib action!
Nice squib action...and a bit of character development while we're at it, too. This one provided a lot more action than I expected, and even features a magnificent car chase sequence. Director DeCoteau did a great job, and also honed his skills with the similar Lady Avenger. Plus, I urge you to check out Prey of the Jaguar. So if you're looking for action, go for American Rampage. Cool, explosive cover art, too.
Hung fan kui (1995)
Jackie Chan at the peak of his career.
I believe Rumble in the Bronx to be Chen Gangsheng's finest, er...Jackie Chan's most exciting movie. I've seen about 25 or 30 of them now, but this one's still the best. It has a lot of humor, and uh, should I even mention stuntwork? He gets more dangerous and goofy each time around. This time he's taking on like 100 of the bad guys. Then he's teaming up with some of the bad guys, but either way, he's always on Chan's side, if you know what I mean. I love that soundtrack, too, especially the song in the end credits. So, how about a sequel?
Shock Cinema Vol. 3 (1991)
The best of the Shock Cinema series.
This has some funny bloopers, especially the outtakes from Doctor Alien. It even shows the original Robot Ninja trailer, which is about 4 minutes long! Goofy stuff, and there's some funny outtakes from Nightmare Sisters. I've seen this one about 3 or 4 times and even a few of my friends liked it. Hey, sometimes the bloopers can be funnier than the films themselves, but I haven't seen either Dr. Alien or Nightmare Sisters. So I'm not sure, but the behind-the-scenes material is sure enjoyable. I highly recommend this for fans of b-cinema, scream queens, and gore film lovers.
Jack Frost (1997)
This movie is goofy as hell! I think it was written as a serious film, but then when it came time to film, Michael Cooney said "Hey, let's throw in some humor and spice it up!" The characters are actually slightly developed, too. Oh, and the death sequences are the best. One thing I hate, though, was the hairdryer-weapons. What was that all about?
The Dentist 2 (1998)
Why a sequel?
Why do a part two, I ask? Money, that's all it is...and perhaps for the cast and crew from the first to explore the same 'ole territory to see what'll happen this time around. Corben Bernsen's back, without Ken Foree (what a shame), and he's up to his killing ways again. Reminds me of Stepfather 2 a bit, hmmm. Now this time, the dialogue is a little interesting and the plot does seem to progress for a while. Like usual, it slows down and Clint Howard jumps in for a cameo. Well, the ending was fair, I guess, and Jillian McWhirter did indeed give a good performance. Good enough to also star in Yuzna's Progeny. He's stated an interest in doing The Dentist 3, but please don't, Brian. I'd rather see a Re-Animator 3, which should be in pre-production at the time of this writing. So, if you're looking for a decent horror flick, watch the director's Return of the Living Dead 3 or his produced-only Ticks - both fine films.
Sand Trap (1998)
PM Entertainment does it again.
This is one of PM's finest, although they did not produce this (they only distributed, I believe). First of all, PM Entertainment is the company with about 50 huge car crashes in each of their films. Ah, now you know what company I'm talking about. Well, the action is toned down here and the suspense multiplied. What also helps is the four main characters: robber, guy, his evil wife, and the sheriff. All of these roles are very well developed and all seem like real people. Now if you were put in the same situation as this guy, you'd do the same thing, too. I rooted for him all along.
The Blood of Heroes (1989)
We needed more blood for these heroes.
This isn't too bad of a film actually. Sure, the plot's original, with a touch of Mad Max, which in turn was inspired by Death Race 2000. Hauer gives a great performance, as usual, but it's that Full Metal Jacket guy who plays the best part. And Richard Norton has a cameo! He even gets to do a little fighting, as expected from him. This needed more blood, though.
Hokey, but still fun.
The preview for this film is actually more exciting to watch. It's really hokey; in the mold of Die Hard, I guess you could say. But aren't they all? The dialogue is kinda interesting, yet, very expectable. The best part - the cool action sequences. Basically just a low-budget movie with a big-budget, right?
