Scream for Help (1984)
Scream for this movie to end.
I'm not adverse to a bad B-rate but please give us viewers credit for having a LITTLE intelligence.
**Spoiler Alert** Storyline - Teenage girl has wants to expose her scheming stepfather's (Paul) plan to kill her wealthy mother. This wouldn't be too hard since he's made enough attempts to remind one of a Roadrunner & Wyle E. Coyote scenario. But as bad film rules dictate, no one will believe her. As for the terrible acting, Rachael Kelly had an excuse - she was just a kid - but what about the rest of the cast.
Worthy of comment is the fact, be it I'm not an auto mechanic by trade but no stranger to mechanics, that I've never heard of a Carburetor spring that when broken will drop the gas pedal to the floor, lock the steering wheel & render the brakes useless. Not to mention the fact that if an unlicensed teenage driver caused that kind of a wreck, its more likely that the next scene would take place at a police station rather than a repair shop.
My personal favorites were the co-conspirators Lacey and Brenda. The latter being Paul's mistress. Unbeknownst to Paul, Lacey is her husband NOT her brother. Over the top is Lacey's philosophy that its OK if his wife has sex with Paul, just as long as she doesn't enjoy it.
Maybe this film is its down to a choice of this or burping all the tupperware.
Invisible Invaders (1959)
Silly but Cute
First of all, I would think an alien life form with the advanced intelligence to take over the world by means of self-induced invisibility, would be able to pick up their feet when they walk.
If you can look past the usual lack of attention to details typically found in this period (John Carridine's Character is killed in an explosion, but his body is compleatly intact.) Also this one always drives me crazy in any of the old walking dead flicks: You always see the zombie walking around in the suite he was buried in. Do we need to be reminded that undertakers DO NOT dress corpses in the traditional one-leg-at-a-time, one-arm-at-a-time. The garments are slit up the back and laid over the prone corpse. Of all the shortcomings of the NOTLD '90 remake, at least they picked up on this.
Invaders tended to be a little excessive in the reused footage dept, and I think if I saw the clip where that same bush parted for entry (by the invisible being) one more time, I would scream for real. Also the glimpses of the creature in their true form... I've seen this costume somewhere before, but 'IT' escapes me just now...
All in all a faily typical 50's sci-fi drive-in schlock creature feature icon from childhood that could be enjoyable on a rainy saturday afternoon with all the chores done and the ballgame rained out.
