Re: List Thread-Third Annual Drive-In/Exploitation/B-Movie Challenge Mar 31-Apr 30 20


2010 B-Movie/Exploitation/Drive-in Movie Challenge List - 104
2011 B-Movie/Exploitation/Drive-in Movie Challenge List - 105


4/1/12

1) Killpoint (1984) - Grabbed the first disc out of Mill Creek's "Explosive Cinema" set to start things off. A police detective (Leo Fong) is trying to catch a psycho-killer/illegal gunrunner (Cameron Mitchell) and his henchman (Stack Pierce). Richard Roundtree pops up as a detective in about a half dozen scenes. Lots of gunplay, a little chop socky, several really bad country songs, and a couple of boobs (three if you count Cameron Mitchell).
2) Low Blow (1986) - Leo Fong returns (along with just about everyone else from the last movie) as a down-on-his-luck private eye who is hired to rescue a rich man's daughter from a cult run by Cameron Mitchell (nutty as ever) and Akosua Busia (cute as a button). Stack Pierce is a down-on-his-luck boxer who Fong hires to be part of his mercenary team.

4/2/12

3) 9 Deaths of the Ninja (1985) - I'm guessing, going by the goofy interpretive dance title sequence alone, that this was meant to be a tongue-in-cheek action flick. It was amusing anyway, whether intentional or not. Sho Kosugi and Brent Huff (the guy from The Perils of Gwendoline) are anti-terrorist agents called in when a busload of tourists are kidnapped by a Dr. Strangelove wannabe and his henchwomen (led by Regina Richardson, who I just saw last month in Tightrope). If not for one gratuitous boob shot, and a murder or three, this would be a great kid's movie.
4) The Patriot (1986) - After Stack Pierce (again) and a couple of goofballs steal a nuclear warhead, Leslie Nielsen drafts former SEAL Gregg Henry back into service to recover the bomb before it goes off. Jeff Conaway (that guy from Taxi) and the always entertaining Michael J. Pollard are in it too.
5) Professor Lust (1967) - I got tired of Crown International flicks, so I switched gears. A mild-mannered college professor partakes in a drug he developed, and becomes a drug dealer/pornographer/pimp (not sure why they didn't just go ahead and call it "The Naughty Professor") who drugs women so they'll have sex with undesirable men. The SWV DVD-R copy seems to be missing a reel or two midway, but that's probably all there is of it anywhere.
6) Torture Me Kiss Me (1970) - Early Nazisploitation film featuring guys in Nazi uniforms, chicks in short dresses (I guess the costume rental place didn't have 1940's clothes for women), and some WWII stock footage. The orgy scene promised in the trailer
Spoiler:
consisted of two guys and three topless girls making out in an office (along with several hilarious Wishmanesque cutaways to a portrait of Hitler). NY sexploitation vet Uta Erickson pops up in a lesbian scene about halfway through the flick.


4/3/12

7) Top Cop (1990) - Disc two out of Mill Creek's "Explosive Cinema" set: Arkansas cop works to bring down a drug kingpin.

4/4/12

8) The Silencer (1992) - A hitwoman who gets her orders from a video game, is stalked by Chris Mulkey (I recognized him, but I only know his name because I read the credits) as she kills a few people. Morton Downey, Jr. was in it, for some reason. Man, I hated this one.
9) Scorpion (1986) - Chuck Norris wannabe battles terrorists. I decided to skip the last film on this disc, Van Nuys Blvd., because I watched it during a previous Challenge.
10) Paradise in Harlem (1939) - After witnessing a murder, a black actor flees Harlem and heads south to take up alcoholism. Soon his life-long dream of performing Othello takes him back to Harlem.
11) Schlock! The Secret History of American Movies (2000) - Documentary about exploitation films. Features interviews with Samuel Z. Arkoff, Roger Corman, David Friedman, Doris Wishman, and others.
12) Iron Angel (1964) - Disc three out of Mill Creek's "Explosive Cinema" set: Ultra-low budget Korean War flick about a few soldiers and a M*A*S*H nurse they run into while on a mission.
13) The Hostage (1967) - The "cinematography by Ted V. Mikels" credit told me I was in for a good time. A young couple and their bratty little bastard are moving from an apartment to a house somewhere in Iowa. The kid stows away on the moving van with bad guys, Don Kelly and Harry Dean Stanton. John Carradine plays a bum who's accused of abducting the kid.

4/5/12

14) Terror in the Jungle (1967) - Plane crashes in the Amazon, and a guy goes to the jungle to look for his kid (who's being held by an Incan dance troupe). This is the second "Magicmation Effects" (a stop-motion technique used for gore effects) movie I've seen in the last six months (the other was Legend of Horror (1971), produced by the same guy, Enrique Torres Tudela). I doubt there's a third.
15) The Skydivers (1963) - Not sure if I've seen this one before (or just the MST3K version), but decided I might as well go ahead and watch it since it was already in the DVD player. Soap opera tale about people jumping out of airplanes. Bad acting. Stupid dialogue ("Coffee? I like coffee."). I've seen far worse.

4/6/12

16) Naked - As Nature Intended (1961) - British nudist camp movie follows five girls across country as the narrator points out historic spots (Stonehenge, etc.) and gives a little history lesson. Finally the travelogue ends when the girls get to a beach where they frolic under an overcast sky, then walk around a nudist camp (carrying strategically placed towels, of course).
17) I Crossed the Color Line (The Black Klansman) (1966) - Directed by Ted V. Mikels. After his daughter is killed when Klansmen firebomb a church, a light-skinned black guy buys a wig and joins the Klan.
18) Raw Meat (1972) -
