Shaolin chuan ren (1982)
A perfect gem
This little film has stuck with me for decades. It's basically everything Shaw Brothers, rolled into one hilarious, action-packed, visually stunning masterpiece.
For those unfamiliar with the Shaw Brothers, this movie contains over the top kung fu (or gung fu/ gong fu if you want to get technical), great slapstick comedy, and a hint of the paranormal. Tang Chia's directing style is so unique, and actually has great control over his actors.
It took me years to find the name of this movie back in the infancy of the internet, as I had a bootleg copy... I have a copy bought from Amazon now so there's that fix.
Definite must watch, even if you're not big into fists and kicks, because at least you'll laugh your socks off.
Shock Treatment (1981)
I first saw this movie by going out on a limb and buying it on VHS from amazon. Now, I must warn you, this strays far from Rocky Horror Picture Show, so try not to compare the two too much.
Now I could go over the plot but that is what what the plot outline is for correct?
What I would like to base my review on is about the SERIOUSNESS of the plot. Predating the movie "The Running Man" by six years and the novel of the same name by five. It touched on other things so blatantly obvious now it's ridiculous. Now, (spoiler alert) during the scene where they go to the home area with Janet's family, there is product placement everywhere and gives echoes of Fahrenheit 451.
I highly recommend this movie to sci-fi nerds, even if you're not a fan of RHPS.
how much tripe could a tripe monster make?
I rented this movie roughly 4-5 years ago and was instantly disappointed.
I wanted to see a b-movie slasher flick, but ended up with a fecal matter for my eyes. The acting was similar to watching grass dry. I've seen better acting in a softcore film...
The idea that a crazy killer comes out of nowhere baffled me. How was this a horror movie?
this movie's production value, was laughable at best. There were no scares. It seemed like a high school student got a new video camera for Christmas. The plot was all over the place, if existent. If you are bored looking for a bad horror movie to rent, skip this one. There are much better b-movies out there.
a vomit-fest of a blob ripoff
horrible movie with lame attempts at humor and stiff acting casting was ridiculous (main character is 17, but has a tattoo??) this movie should be burned.... and to think this title was in the top rented section.... if i could retroactively kill the person who invented the DVD... i would kill him/her just so my eyes wouldn't be scorned by this movie.
It starts off with a campy scene, and then just fails as the horrible CGI monster, or green blob dissolves a guy.
Then zoom in present day. A teenage girl with an abusive father, has friends help clean an abandoned house, class clown/ renegade pops out.....
uggh... this was a cardboard cutout "C" movie.... the best part of this movie?
the credits at the end
This was good, but shouldn't have been called "Halloween"
Well I walked into this movie thinking it was going to be the most retarded piece of horse dung ever flung at a dartboard... but i actually quite enjoyed the movie.
The facet of the prequel/remake/re-envision was quite interesting being spilled out on the big screen Showing how Micheal was evil, and how it evolved to a pure evil was astounding but the fact that zombie stylized the killings reminiscent of the Friday the 13th series proved to be a disappointment, but i am glad he was able to use one of the most notable songs from a horror series helped him out...
a little nostalgic, it was a little like "Mikey", or "The Good Son" leading into the 80s hackemslashem we all used to enjoy.
my vote is that it's worth a look, just don't go with some guy who gets excited because of the first mask he uses............
