A film can only be counted once per list with the exception of riffed/commentaried films (see below).

This challenge is for Movies. Although we are not allowing TV shows, Made for TV Movies are allowed as are Direct to Video features.

We are allowing documentaries on B-Movies, Exploitation and Drive-ins and those involved with the production thereof. These should be features over 40 minutes.. We are also allowing trailer compilations, such as 42nd Street Forever and Something Weird compilations.
Throw a viewing party and show trailers between movies.

Mystery Science Theater 3000, Riff Trax, Cinematic Titanic, etc. are allowed. If there is a second riffed version (for example, MST3K did one, then

Cinematic Titanic did the same movie) you may watch the second and any additional riffed versions for a full credit each, but I encourage you to just

watch another movie, instead.

Commentaries. The old commentary rule is gone. All commentaries count as views.

Films that have been nominated for Oscars are discouraged but not banned. I had originally wanted this to be the only hard rule, but I came across too many exceptions.

Drive-In exception rule: Any film seen in an actual Drive-In during the challenge 2012, regardless of other qualification, counts toward your list.. Please note that it was a Drive-In Movie.

We will go with the Sci-Fi rule on TV Mini-series (one "night" equals an entry), on Serials (we'll go with an hour's worth per entry), provided they actually were theatrical serials. A serial episode is about 15-20 minutes, so an hour's worth counts as an entry. 4-15 minutes ones or 3-20 minute episodes.

There are 3 Wild Cards for non-conforming films.

For fun, keep a running tally of "before they were famous" appearances in your list.

Please number your lists. Also, it is helpful to put a link to your list in your signature. This makes it easier for others to check out your list..

New rule. Please tally your totals including "new views" at the end of the challenge.

For extra fun, try to complete the optional checklist. Also, try to keep a running tally in your lists of "before they were famous" appearances.

Official Checklist: (put in spoiler tags on your list)

For more descriptive definitions checkout http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exploitation_film and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B-movie

If a category is listed as "Optional", it does not need to be
filled to "complete" the checklist. There are 10 free spots you may apply to non-Optional categories.
As with other checklists, titles can count for multiple categories.

Some of these categories are so obscure we're giving 10 free spots of your choosing to fill in the list.

The following lists are Automatic Safe lists. They are not definitive and there might be exceptions therein. Generally, the presence of those on

the lists in an actual creative capacity (that is, more than just a cameo or bit part. For instance, Bruce Campbell appearing in Spider-Man does

not make Spider-Man safe) is enough to make a film safe. Got more? Post them and I'll update the list. Obviously, films not including these

participants are safe, too. Update: I added several new names to the actors list. Some of these actors appeared in actual big budget

Hollywood fare, but most of their career was in B-Movies, then obviously discard the Big Hollywood movies and just watch the B's (For example,

William Shatner. Ignore Star Trek movies but anything else is fair game. Or Patrick Swazye. Ghost is probably not right, but most of his other

films were B-Movies).

Time to watch some art!

MARCH 31
1) ANGELS FROM HELL - OK biker flick. Lacks subversive edge of the best of this genre. *

2) MACHETE - Fun grindhouse pastische from Robert Rodriguez born from a fake trailer. Danny Trejo is great as titular bad ass.


APRIL 1
3) CHOPPING MALL - Barbara Crampton and Kelli Maroney are among partiers trapped in shopping mall after hours by killer robots. Surprisingly good. *


APRIL 2
4) THE BIG SCORE - Fred Williamson directs and stars in ho hum police actioner. Good cast is largely wasted in rote, poorly made "thriller". *


APRIL 3
5) PULP FICTION - Still awesome!

6) CRY-BABY - John Waters' juvenile delinquent musical has grown on me over the years. Energetic with good songs and a great cast.


APRIL 4
7) HOT CARS - No nonsense noir with honest husband and father embroiled in car theft ring. Fast paced with good climax. *


APRIL 5
8) EVIL DEAD (2013) - Another unnecessary remake of an iconic horror classic. Good atmosphere, performances and gore with lots of nice call backs to original for die hards. Ending could have been better, but I liked this. *

9) SATAN'S LITTLE HELPER - An interesting idea, but not quite succssful horror film from usually reliable Jeff Lieberman. *


APRIL 6
CINEMA WASTELAND
10) SLUMPER PARTY MASSACRE - I've always loved this slasher classic. Watching with a cast Q & A afterward was friggin' awesome.


APRIL 7
11) THE BOOGEYMAN (1980) - Disjointed nonsense to some. Euro style art house horror to others. Art house! (clap clap) Art house! (clap clap).


APRIL 8
12) REMOTE CONTROL - Aliens use VHS tapes to start an invasion in writer/director Jeff Lieberman's witty ode to 50's sci fi. *

13) TERROR VISION - Colorful, weird and over the top Empire production. Energetic performances with cool, gooey effects.

14) CHROME AND HOT LEATHER - William Smith is good as biker leader trying to keep gang living within the law. A loose cannon in the group complicates things and incurs wrath of military man and friends. Pretty good, but not as edgy as the best of 'em. *


APRIL 9
15) THE VAN - Amiable but boring story of recent high school graduate and his adventures crusing in his (not Chevy) van. *


APRIL 10
16) PECKER - As a huge John Waters fan, I'm not sure how I managed to miss this one all these years. Likable but not really very funny story of young Baltimore photographer suddenly thrust into New York art scene. Breezy and entertaining, with good performances. *


APRIL 11
17) SAVAGE STREETS - Linda Blair kicks ass in Danny Steinman's classic revenge thriller. Delievers everything you'd expect, and perhaps a bit more. Good fun.


APRIL 13
18) SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE II - Wacky sequel defies logic - and so does my love for it. Let's buzz!

19) DRACULA 3D (2012) - One giant praying mantis aside, just plain dull adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic from Dario Argento. Some decent 3D but pretty dreadful. *


APRIL 14
20) WALKING TALL (1973) - A drive-in classic. Joe Don Baker is great in true story of sheriff Bufford Pusser and his fight against organized crime in Tennessee. Intense and suprisingly emotional.

21) PART 2 WALKING TALL - Bo Svenson takes over the role of Bufford Pusser in decent sequel. Lacks grit of original. *

22) FINAL CHAPTER - WALKING TALL - At this point we know how Bufford Pusser's story ends, but finale of series is still interesting. After the release of "Walking Tall", Pusser finds himself an unexpected celebrity and facing criticism for unconventional police methods. Things get a bit meta when he attends movie premier and watches reenactment of pivotal grim moment from his life. *


APRIL 15
23) THIS FILTHY WORLD - John Waters speaks for an hour and a half. Hilarity ensues. *


APRIL 17
24) THE MINI-SKIRT MOB - Rodeo performing motorcycle gang terrorizes former member and new wife in tense, economical thriller. Harry Dean Stanton plays one of bikers. *


APRIL 18
25) KEOMA - Franco Nero stars in surreal, dark spaghetti western from director Enzo Castellari. I loved this. *


APRIL 19
26) VIVA LAS VEGAS - It may be an Elvis movie, but this flick belongs to Ann-Margret.


APRIL 20
27) THE LORDS OF SALEM - Rob Zombie's hallucinogenic witchcraft tale is overflowing with beautiful, if occasionally silly, imagery. Not for everyone but if you're on the film's wacky wavelength (I was), it's a fun trip. *

28) TROLL 2 - It wouldn't be April without a trip to Nilbog. We had lime Kool-Aid and cake with green icing for the proper atmosphere.


APRIL 21
29) EATING RAOUL - I could watch Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov go grocery shopping and it would be delightful.

30) THE PEACE KILLERS - Brutal motorcycle gang terrorizes ex girlfriend of leader and her hippie commune. After hippies set aside pacifist ways and unite with rival gang to engage bikers, film takes unexpected turn as confrontation is not what's expected. Violent and intense. A great biker pic. *


APRL 22
31) THE SEVERED ARM - A clever premise and some cool twists make this stalk 'n slash effort a daffy good time. This was the Code Red DVD with some extraneous scenes edited. I didn't miss them. *


APRIL 24
32) VICE RAID - Mamie Van Doren stars in story of disgraced cop's crusade to bring down crime kingpin. Exactly what you'd expect. *


APRIL 25
33) THE REAL LINDA LOVELANCE (WILDCARD) - Damn, I had no idea how dark LL's life got. *

34) ROCK N ROLL HIGH SCHOOL - Hands down, my favore New World Picture. Everything clicks in joyous, anarchic comedy. Great soundtrack too.


APRIL 26
35) DARKTOWN STRUTTERS - Bizarre, over the top blaxploitation satire written by George Armitage at times seems like a live action Ralph Bakshi cartoon. Impossible to describe, just needs to be seen to be believed. Outragous, fast paced story gets weirder (and better) as it progresses. *


APRIL 27
36) QUADROPHENIA - Director Franc Roddam's cult drama based on classic album by the Who. Gritty, with vivid sense of time and place. *

37) MACON COUNTY LINE - I think if this movie was released today it would be hailed as a twisty, well crafted indie thriller and play in art houses.


APRIL 28
38) GALAXY OF TERROR - Ambitious New World science fiction horror film is a total blast.

39) THE BIG SHOWDOWN - Lee Van Cleef and haunting musial score are best things in decent but unremarkable spaghetti western. *


APRIL 29
40) TOMMY - I've never wanted to be a baked bean so badly in my entire life.


APRIL 30
41) HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD - Hilarious and probably a bit truthful satire of life in a New Worldesque studio. Always a fitting end to the challenge.


THE END
WHAT A LONG STRANGE TRIP IT'S BEEN!

2012 Drive-in/Exploitation/B-Movie Challenge List (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/11163201-post11.html) - 100


4/1/13

1) Murder in Harlem (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026741/) (1935) - A black nightwatchman discovers a dead white girl in a chemical factory basement and is subsequently arrested and tried for her murder. Plays a bit like three movies edited into one, but it sorta worked. Not a bad start.

4/2/13

2) Murder on Lenox Avenue (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0033929/) (1941) - Bad guy gets kicked out as the leader of Harlem's "Better Business League," then decides that murdering the new leader will somehow set things right. Not bad.
3) Miracle in Harlem (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040593/) (1948) - Rich guy chisels old woman and her family out of their candy business, then he ends up murdered. Pretty decent whodunit with some good musical interludes. I liked it.

4/3/13

4) Son of Ingagi (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0033075/) (1940) - Odd little horror/comedy about an old woman/mad scientist (don't see that combo too often) with an apeman (or whatever that thing was supposed to be) living in her basement. After the old woman is murdered, an incompetent police detective is assigned to the case. Goofy as hell, but kind of fun for what it was.
5) Confessions of a Vice Baron (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0173742/) (1943) - In this sequel to Smashing the Vice Trust (1937), guy on death row dictates his life of crime to the warden's secretary (which we see illustrated by clips from the previous film and a few other old exploitation movies: Victims of Passion (Race Suicide) (1937), Wages of Sin (1938), Mad Youth (1939), and Souls in Pawn (1940)) This was a pretty good super-cheapy. Made me want to find the three films they used that I haven't seen (at least not in their entirety, because two of them looked awfully familiar). No luck finding them though. First nude scene of this challenge.
6) Hospital of Terror (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076478/) (Nurse Sherri) (1978) - Decided to watch something on the Al Adamson YouTube channel and this was the first one I found that I hadn't watched before. Famous astrologer/mystic/whatever dies in a hospital during an operation and decides to possess a nurse and then start killing people. Almost silly enough to be fun.
7) The Emperor Jones (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0023985/) (1933) - Guy named Jones gets a new job, leaves his small town, takes up womanizing and gambling, goes to jail for murder, escapes, and finally ends up as emperor of a small island nation. Larger budget (and from an actual studio) sets it apart from the other race films I've watched, and the anti-hero main character foreshadows blaxploitation films yet to come. Well worth a look, if only for the (almost) one man show in the final act.
8) The Blood of Jesus (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0033406/) (1941) - Think Ron Ormond/Estus Pirkle film with an an all-black cast and you're on the right track. After being accidentally shot by her husband, a woman is visited by an angel who takes her to the afterlife, where she visits a nightclub, gets a job at a juke joint, runs into the devil, and eventually encounters a signpost that changes into a talking crucifix. Some really good old-time Gospel music in this one.

4/4/13

9) Drive (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116147/) (1997) - Poor man's Rush Hour. Fleeing from bad guys, The Chairman from Iron Chef America (the Asian martial artist guy) kidnaps Dwayne Wayne (the fast talking Black guy) and forces him to drive them cross-country in a red 1973 Dodge Challenger. Lots of gunplay and chopsocky, but surprisingly little car action for a film called Drive. This one actually turned out to be pretty decent.
10) Mrs. Stone's Thing (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0208438/) (1970) - Mrs. Stone wonders why her husband doesn't want to take her along to his boss's "business parties." And why is he too worn out for sex when he gets home? He gets tired of her complaining, and takes her along to the next party, where we get to see a few cute hippie chicks, a couple of disgustingly fat nekkid people, Ed Wood in drag, and whatever other oddness they could film in an afternoon and squeeze onto the screen.

4/5/13

11) The Muthers (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074941/) (1976) - Two female pirates are recruited to infiltrate a coffee plantation that enslaves women. Pretty good Blaxploitation/WIP combo from DPI.
12) Creature of Destruction (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061529/) (1967) - AIP TV remake of The She-Creature directed by Larry Buchanan. Les Tremayne is a mentalist who puts his assistant into a past-life regression trance, turning her into a silly looking rubber suit monster that kills guests at a resort. Not much happening here, but it actually wasn't that bad.

4/6/13

13) It's Alive! (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063145/) (1969) - Another Larry Buchanan AIP TV movie. A couple on a cross-country drive end up imprisoned, along with Tommy Kirk, in a crazy coot's serpentarium where they're to be fed to the rubber suit monster from the last flick. Just not a whole lot happening in this one.
14) The She-Creature (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050957/) (1956) - Hypnotist puts his assistant into a past-life regression trance, turning her into a rubber suit monster that kills people at the beach. Higher budget, better monster, and better effects made this one much better than the cheapo remake.
15) Chloe, Love Is Calling You (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026209/) (1934) - A voodoo practitioner and a girl who may or may not be her biracial daughter return to Louisiana 15 years after they left. The girl falls in love with a white guy. Not a lot happens. Then it ends.
16) The Choppers (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054744/) (1961) - Arch Hall, Jr. and four other boys strip parts off cars. Meanwhile a cop and an insurance investigator try to catch them. Not bad.
17) The Muthers (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0144371/) (1968) - A day in the life of a couple of horny housewives and their two horny daughters. Several familiar faces. Lots of T&A. Not a lot of story.

4/7/13

18) The Chinese Connection (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068767/) (1971) - Bruce Lee seeks to avenge his teacher's death. Classic chopsocky flick. My only rewatch so far in this challenge.

4/8/13

19) Sleazy Rider (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0148924/) (1972) - After a sheriff harasses a gang of bikers, the gang has an orgy, then they go looking for revenge on the sheriff by attacking him and his family in their home. It was a little surreal seeing Grizzly Adams eating Nilla Wafers and guzzling Coors while he was watching all the raping and screwing going on.
20) Savage Abduction (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068440/) (Cycle Psycho) (1972) -An attorney hires a client to kill his wife. Then the killer decides he enjoys killing and necrophilia, so he blackmails the attorney to acquire a couple of young girls for him. So the attorney hires a few bikers to get the girls. Several familiar faces in this one.

4/9/13

21) Bust Out (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065574/) (Convicts' Women) (1973) - A high school teacher and his wife take four female students on a senior picnic in the woods. Right away, Rene Bond gets naked (she spends most of the film wearing nothing but a pair of red knee-high boots, a couple of gold chains, and false eyelashes). There's some simulated sex. Two escaped convicts (Ric Lutze and another guy) show up. Then there's some volleyball playing, and some more simulated sex.
22) The Big Bust-Out (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069784/) (1972) - English-dubbed European (I think it was German) WIP flick. A group of women convicts on work release at a convent make their escape, along with a nun, then travel across a desert while pursued by prison guards and "white slavers." Not too bad.
23) A Dirty Western (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0124406/) (1975) - Written and directed by Joseph F. Robertson, the writer/director of Mrs. Stone's Thing. By this time, he'd apparently moved on from softcore sexploitation flicks, where they went to great pains not to show too much, to explicit hardcore where they went to great pains to show everything. Three convicts escape from prison with a sheriff and his two-man posse far behind. They happen upon a ranch occupied by a woman and her three nekkid daughters, and proceed to rape, kidnap, and rape some more. Then there's some horse riding. And a little more rape. And some more horse riding. Then some more raping. I thought a couple of the horse riding scenes did a pretty good job of showing the wide-open spaces, so I looked up the credited cinematographer, Robert Rubin, and found that he was an Assistant Director on Dirty Harry and The Last Picture Show.
24) The Arena (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069729/) (1973) - Pam Grier and Margaret Markov are slaves in ancient Rome who are forced to fight as gladiators. This could've been a good flick if the fight scenes had been better choreographed/performed/photographed. I'm pretty sure I hadn't seen this one before (if I had, it was a long, long time back), although parts of it seemed familiar (I think I probably just remembered the scenes from the trailer), so I'm counting it as a FTV.

4/10/13

25) 3 Dev Adam (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0181947/) (Three Giant Men) (1973) - Santo , Captain America, and Julia go to Istanbul to track down a counterfeiter/art thief/murderer called "Spider" who wears a green and red Spider-Man inspired costume. It took me three tries to make it through this one.

4/11/13

26) Super Spook (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0247744/) (1974) - What a giant steaming pile of crap this was. An old woman running numbers is mugged, and her daughter hires "Super Spook" to bring the mugger to justice.
27) Mondo Cane (http://www.imdb.com/title//) (1962) - The film that started the "Mondo" flick fad. Has the usual stuff: sex, death, cruelty to animals, people acting strangely. Colorful and well shot. Nominated for an Oscar for "Best Music, Original Song."
28) Mondo Cane 2 (http://www.imdb.com/title//) (1963) - More of the same.

4/12/13

29) Dirty Gertie from Harlem U.S.A. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038480/) (1946) - Lots of bad acting on display in this one. After two-timing her boyfriend, stripper Gertie LaRue leaves Harlem and goes to do a show at an island resort.
30) Pacific Banana (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082875/) (1980) - Australian sex comedy about a pair of pilots working in the South Pacific. Decent amount of nudity. Not much comedy. I didn't think I'd watched this one before, but enough of it was familiar that I decided I must've seen it before on cable. So that's the second rewatch of this challenge.

4/13/13

31) Suckula (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0128641/) (1973) - Buck Flower plays a news anchor/narrator who introduces a few vampire sex scenes and fake commercials. He also appears (in drag) as an on-the-scene reporter.
32) Spermula (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075251/) (1976) - The planet Spermula is close to destruction, so a few Spermulites are given human form and sent to Earth to drain men so they can no longer reproduce so the aliens can take over. Udo Kier plays an alien hermaphrodite. What a huge, stinking pile of merde this was. (I watched the English-dubbed version, but I doubt the original French version was any better.)
33) Juan de los Muertos (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1838571/) (Juan of the Dead) (2011) - When zombies infest Cuba, a group of criminals starts an exterminating business. Didn't live up to all the hype, but it was pretty darn good. (I'll wildcard this one if anyone objects to its inclusion.)
34) Dawna the Dead (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2115308/) (Dawna of the Dead) (2010) - Man, did this suck. A couple of women go to a cemetery. They play with a ouija board, then one sneaks off to play with herself, then zombies dig their way out of their graves and the raping starts. Then some more people show up at the cemetery and there's some more raping, and a little gore. The women in this weren't especially attractive and the zombie makeup (when they became zombies) didn't help any.

4/14/13

35) Return of the Dragon (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068935/) (1972) - Bruce Lee goes to Rome to help a young lady's uncle fight off the gangsters who want to buy his restaurant. Classic chopsocky flick with final battle between Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris in the Roman Coliseum. My third rewatch for this challenge.

4/15/13

36) Bottoms Up Bavarian Style (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071171/) (1977) - German sex comedy about a couple of spies chasing after a scientist who has invented a formula for turning bullshit into gasoline. Lots of attractive naked frauleins. Not a whole lot of comedy. The English dub on this seems like it's maybe 50% translation & 50% riff.

4/16/13

37) The Bonnie Parker Story (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051430/) (1958) - AIP gangster flick. After Bonnie Parker hooks up with Guy Darrow (and later, Guy's brother Chuck and his girlfriend), they start holding up gas stations and general stores. After a while they break Bonnie's husband out of jail and start robbing banks and armored cars. I don't know why they changed Clyde's name and gave Bonnie a husband, but it was a pretty good flick.
38) Cry Tough (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052716/) (1959) - John Saxon plays a young Puerto Rican just out of prison who winds up getting mixed up with crooks again and rising up through the criminal ranks. This one was full of familiar character actors.
39) Hollywood Round-Up (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0029011/) (1937) - Columbia B picture about making B pictures. A cowboy star and his stand-in/stuntman are both interested in the star's new costar, but she likes the stuntman. Shemp Howard plays the assistant director of the film-within-the-film.
40) Devil Girl from Mars (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0046907/) (1954) - Flying saucer lands near an inn in Scotland. Alien chick and her goofy-looking giant robot emerge from the ship looking for men to repopulate Mars. A good bit of scenery chewing going on in this one.

4/17/13

41) The Giant Claw (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050432/) (1957) - Planes are attacked by an "overgrown buzzard" from outer space. Lots of stock footage, plus one of the goofiest monsters ever put on film. I'd seen this one long ago on cable. Entertaining as heck.
42) Daikaijû Gamera (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059080/) (Gamera, The Giant Monster) (1965) - Fire eating, fire-breathing, flying turtle attacks Japan. I'd seen the Americanized version before, so I watched the original version last night (I'll still count it as a rewatch). Ugh. Even subtitled that little "I like turtles" kid was irritating as fuck.
43) Black Samson (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071226/) (1974) - Bar owner with a pet lion tries to keep drug dealers out of his neighborhood. Drive-In stalwart William Smith played the bad guy. Okay film.
44) Three the Hard Way (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072284/) (1974) - Dr. Shrinker is going to release a poison that only kills "black folks" into the water supplies of D.C., Detroit, and L.A., and it's up to Jim Brown, Fred Williamson, and Jim Kelly to stop his plans. Alex Rocco pops up a couple times as a police detective. This one wasn't bad.
45) The Bronze Buckaroo (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0031122/) (1939) - Group of cowboys go to a friend's ranch only to find he's missing. Meanwhile a neighboring rancher is trying to get the friend's sister to sell the ranch. Kind of surprised to see Spencer Williams playing a bad guy in this.

4/18/13

46) Supersonic Man (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079971/) (1979) - English-dubbed Spanish Superman rip-off. An alien is sent to earth to battle Cameron Mitchell. Almost silly enough to be fun.
47) Fugitive Girls (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0124565/) (Five Loose Women) (1974) - Directed by Stephen C. Apostolof (the director of Orgy of the Dead) and co-written by Ed Wood. After her boyfriend robs a liquor store, an innocent girl is sent to a summer camp-like women's correctional facility. Later, she, Rene Bond, and three other chicks escape. Ed Wood plays a couple of characters in this one (and does a pretty good job). I was hoping he and Rene Bond would share a scene, but it wasn't to be.
48) The Beach Bunnies (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0123435/) (1976) - Another Apostolof & Wood film. Looking for a scoop, a magazine editor and three of her friends go on vacation at a beach side hotel where a movie star is staying.
49) The Godson (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067145/) (1971) - A young gangster tries to work his way up in the organization. There was maybe ten minutes of story in this flick. The other hour and 20 minutes was simulated sex scenes. Uschi Digard played a hooker.
50) Below the Belt (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0132726/) (1971) - Nutty fight manager spends most of the film attacking women and having pretend sex with them. This flick is an embarrassment of riches: it was written and directed by Bethel Buckalew; Buck Flower has a major role as a retired boxer; Rene Bond (pre-implants!) and Uschi Digard are both in it (and they both have speaking roles, so they're not just scenery).
51) Loose Screws (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089501/) (1985) - Canadian teen sex comedy. Borrows heavily from other similar films. I'd seen it a few times on cable back in the '80s, so it had some nostalgic appeal.

4/19/13

52) The Jail: The Women's Hell (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0853244/) (2006) - Directed by Bruno Mattei. WIP flick with the usual stuff: whippings, showers, snakes. Several women escape the prison and are hunted for sport.
53) Scream in the Night (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026971/) (1935) - Detectives track jewel robber. Lon Chaney, Jr. plays two parts; a detective and a bar owner.

4/20/13

54) Juke Joint (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039521/) (1947) - Spencer Williams and another guy show up in town and pretend to be from Hollywood and help a girl win a beauty contest in exchange for free room and board.

4/21/13

55) Reet, Petite, and Gone (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039759/) (1947) - Old millionaire dies, leaving his son (played by Louis Jordan) his fortune if he marries a woman who just happens (thanks to the old man's shyster lawyer) to have the exact same measurements as the lawyer's secretary. The whole thing is just an excuse to show a bunch of scantily clad chicks between (and during) songs by Louis Jordan and his band. Some good music in this one.
56) Boy! What a Girl (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0135169/) (1946) - A couple of musicians looking to get a backer for a show get a neighbor (Tim Moore) to pose as a wealthy woman interested in financing the show. After all the Spencer Williams flicks I've seen this month, I guess its only right that I watch one with "The Kingfish."
57) TNT Jackson (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072245/) (1974) - Blaxploitation/chopsocky combo. Female martial artist goes to Hong Kong to try to find out what happened to her brother. I think this was the third Jeannie Bell flick I've seen this month. Dick Miller is listed as a writer. Seen this one before. Okay, but nothing special.

4/22/13

58) Firecracker (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067100/) (1981) - Female martial artist goes to Hong Kong to try to find out what happened to her sister. Might as well call it a remake of TNT Jackson. They were both directed by the same guy (Cirio H. Santiago) and written by the same guy (Ken Metcalfe). They even have scenes and dialogue in common. First Vic Diaz sighting this month. Okay, but nothing special.
59) Bad Ass (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1928330/) (2011) - A movie based on a YouTube video. Danny Trejo plays an old guy who becomes famous for beating up a couple guys on a bus. Then when he doesn't think the cops are doing enough to investigate a friend's murder, he decides to bring the killers to justice on his own.
60) Ebony Ivory & Jade (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075206/) (She Devils in Chains) (1976)- My fourth Cirio Santiago flick this month. A group of girls on a track team (Colleen Camp, Rosanne Katon, and some other chicks) are kidnapped and held for ransom. <s>How</s>WHY do you make a drive-in movie about chicks getting kidnapped without any nudity?
61) Too Hot to Handle (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075339/) (1976) - Cheri Caffaro (the chick from the Ginger trilogy) plays a hitwoman killing bad guys. Vic Diaz plays a cop in this one (the only time I remember seeing him play a good guy).

4/23/13

62) The Haunted World of Edward D. Wood, Jr. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113270/) (1995) - Documentary about Ed Wood. Why no Kathy Wood? (I know she does interviews, because I watched one she did the night before I watched this.)
63) Inside Deep Throat (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0418753/) (2005) - Documentary about Deep Throat.

4/24/13

64) The Defilers (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0162928/) (1965) - A couple of guys "looking for kicks" kidnap a woman and keep her as a sex slave. Sleazy roughie written by Dave Friedman.

4/25/13

65) Scum of the Earth (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057480/) (1963) - Teenage girl gets mixed up with pornographers. Written and directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis. After seeing the excerpted pieces in the SWV DVD intro a hundred or so times, I finally got to see the "you're damaged merchandise and this is a fire sale" speech in its entirety, and it's even better in context.
66) The Pick-Up (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0127108/) (1969) - Directed by Lee Frost, who also directed The Defilers. Two guys carrying a load of cash for the mob encounter two chicks having car trouble. They pick them up and end up at a motel. Then the chicks steal the money and the guys have to chase them down and get the money back before the mobsters kill them. Dave Friedman and Bob Cresse play the two mob bosses. This one was pretty good.
67) The Goddaughter (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0778728/) (1972) - After their Godfather is killed, his mob has to find a blood relative to take his place or be taken over by the other mobs. They find an illegitimate daughter in Italy, who happens to be a nun, to take his place. Some Godfather parody with a little Nunsploitation thrown in (when the nun is raped and crucified by the other Godfathers). Uschi plays one of the women mobsters/assassins. Nothing special, but I did get a laugh hearing Uschi say "Squeeze my beeg fucking teet."
68) Hey! There's Naked Bodies on My TV! (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1060254/) (1978) - Janitor watching TV late at night sees R-rated parodies of Welcome Back, Kotter, Barney Miller, and Happy Days.
69) KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077788/) (1978) - Inventor goes nuts and gets fired from his job in an amusement park the same day that KISS is appearing in concert in the parking lot. It's up to the members of KISS to stop the inventor's killer robots, sing a few songs, and try not to look too embarrassed. Goofy fun.
70) Bad Girls Go to Hell (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058933/) (1965) -

one commentary not included in decade count


* = first time viewing

April 03
01. The Louisiana Hussy (1959)* (Sinister Cinema)
A beautiful woman who knows how to use her charms comes between two brothers and threatens their moderately successful Fish Furs & Moss business. Nice swampy setting with lots of outdoor location shots. No gators but we do get to see some moss harvesting. Fairly entertaining movie with barely acceptable acting really slows down during a long flashback about hussy's recent past. Almost no nudity but some half clothed groping which often leads to a happy little bell like tune and some serious sheet clenching. Whew! Betty Lynn who later played Barney Fife's girl Thelma Lou plays the wife of one of the brothers. Directed by Lee Sholem, best know to me as the director of many of the best shows of the first season of The Adventures of Superman. 4/10

April 04
02. She Killed in Ecstasy (1971)*
A beautiful young woman takes revenge on the doctors who condemned her husband's work because of his experiments on human embryos. Strangely paced, almost languid at times yet with a jazzy score that doesn't always seem to fit. There is also some really interesting architecture on display. I rarely felt much suspense or tension but the overall oddness of the film, a reasonable amount of nudity, and just a bit of nastiness made for an enjoyable viewing experience. I've only seen a few other Franco films so I don't know if this one is typical or not. 6/10

April 06
03. Ninja vs Ninja (1987)* (Tai Seng Ninja Six 6-DVD Box Set)
The 'Ninja Syndicate' is after an audio tape (why??) and are opposed by the local police, the CIA, a mysterious white ninja (so mysterious WE never find out who he is!), and perhaps a traitor in their own ranks. I always like to watch the poorly dubbed, usually cropped kung-fu movies for this challenge and this is one of the worst. The plot makes little sense, some major characters and events are never explained, and the end totally sucks. This may be due to the dub script writer or this may have been severely cut. I suspect cuts since the run time on the box is a good 25 minutes longer than the film really runs and the plot description on the box could possibly be the original form of what we get here. On the plus side, there are some OK fights, the 'ninja magic' is kind of neat if standard (multiplying, burrowing underground, smoky teleportation, etc.), and it's short. 2/10
04. Desperate Living (1977)*
Two women on the run for murder end up in Mortville, a shanty town ruled over by a despotic queen. A John Waters film so a brief description doesn't begin to do it justice. Gross, silly, boisterous, full of nudity and sexual situations but rarely erotic, its almost like a fever dream fairy tale populated by street people, lesbians, and men in leather. Although often too loud for my taste and too often indulging in outrageousness for it's own sake, it is still an interesting watch. Very low budget but also very creative in many ways. 5/10

April 07
05. Commentary for Desperate Living with director John Waters and star Liz Renay
OK but not great commentary which most to the time seems like two separate commentaries edited together. Of the two Waters is the more interesting although Renay is OK when she focuses on the film. Some good stories about low budget film making.
06. Mudhoney ... Leaves a Taste of Evil (1965)* (The Russ Meyer Collection R2)
A ex-con on his way to California gets a job on a farm in Spooner, MO and runs afoul of the alcoholic, sadistic husband of the owner's niece. An engrossing tale of rural sleaze, the abuse of religion, and the power of a mob mentality. Hal Hopper is very good as the husband and the rest of the cast is at least adequate. Decent story (based on a novel) with an exciting finish. Some nudity and some very nice directorial flourishes. 7/10

April 08
07. The Ark of the Sun God (1984)* VHS
A master thief is hired to open the booby trapped door to the tomb of Gilgamesh which contains a gold and emerald scepter. An Arab prince is also after the treasure in order to gain political power. Directed by Antonio Margheriti and staring David Warbeck, the title suggest an Indian Jones rip-off and the last part is but the first sixty percent or so feels much more like James Bond with car chases (using miniatures!), kidnapping, gun fights and the like. The tomb has an elaborate set of traps and the climax is exciting but goes on a bit too long. While there are a few neat parts and the cast is pretty good, the whole thing comes out just a bit flat. And there is not an ark in the entire movie. 5/10

April 09
08. Slaughter (1972)*
An ex-Green Beret seeking the killer of his parents is sent to South America by a U.S. Treasury agent, who promises he will find the hit man there. OK action flick. I liked Jim Brown as Slaughter and Stella Stevens was voluptuous but the guy who played one of the main baddies was just awful, seeming more like a parody of all the mafia kingpins you've even seen. This is the only film IMDB has listed for this guy and I can see why. The jazzy score was good but not nearly as funky as I expected (although Slaughter gets his own theme song by Billy Preston). Actually the whole movie is a bit more Bond than blaxploitation. Frequent well done action scenes and lots of Stella Stevens do keep you interested though. 6/10

April 10
09. Black Emanuelle White Emanuelle (1976)*
(Black) Emanuelle, the world's most famous model, and her total dick of a boy friend/photographer visit the home of a wealthy woman in Egypt who is celebrating the return of her daughter Laure (White Emanuelle). Also visiting is a wandering holy man who likes to have his vital forces extracted by the mother when the sun rises. Stuff happens, much of it without clothing. The world of Emanuelle continues to confound me. This. like the other Emanuelle movies I've seen, is pretentious, new agey, full of unappealing personalities, and often tedious. The admittedly lovely women, often nude, can only go so far to offset this. The end is pretty darned bizarre which is why the film scored as high as it did. 3/10

April 11
10. Slaughter's Big Rip-Off (1973)*
After an attempt on his life kills a couple of his friends, ex-Green Beret Slaughter knows that the mob is out for revenge and he needs to strike back. Feels more like blaxploitation than the first film with an urban setting and a funkier soundtrack (by James Brown and Fred Wesley). The big baddie is played by Ed McMahon who is surprisingly OK in the role and miles ahead of the guy in the first film. The rest of the cast is fine and Jim Brown gets to talk more and even emote a little. Despite all this, the movie just isn't as entertaining as the first one. There seem to be fewer action sequences and the story sometimes drags in between them. Not a bad movie at all but not outstanding either. 5/10

April 12
11. Nude on the Moon (1961)*
Two scientists build a spaceship and go to the moon where they find a tropical paradise and lots of boobs. This actually has a plot (at least for the first 30 minutes or so), the typical 1950's first rocket to the moon plot with cheesy lab scenes, an even cheesier model rocket and the clever use of a commercial airliner cockpit for the interior of the spaceship. The space suits look like something out of a Colombia serial. On the moon they find a civilization made up most of women who go around in uncomfortable looking short shorts and head bands with antenna on them and who do not speak, but communicate telepathically. A lot of pictures an notes are taken as the astronauts observe the moon creatures in various poses and activities until the oxygen runs low and they have to return to Earth. There's also a romantic subplot with the workaholic rocket scientist. Not a good movie at all but at least it wasn't boring, just silly and that's worth an extra point. 5/10

April 13
12. Son of Samson (1960)* (Retromedia War-Gods Collection)
Egypt is suffering under the oppression of the Persian Empire which controls the queen and the pharaoh's top adviser. Only the son of Samson can lead the people to overthrow the tyrants! Above average sword and sandal epic. The Egyptian setting is really neat and Mark Forest plays a good hero with a bit more on the ball than some others. There are plenty of feats of strength, most involving rocks, and a good large scale melee at the end. The story is pretty good with only a couple of gaps and the ladies are lovely. 6/10
13. The Son of Cleopatra (1964)* (Retromedia War-Gods Collection)
The mysterious El Kabir leads the freedom loving desert tribes of Egypt against the oppression of a corrupt Roman governor. Mark Damon is a pleasant hero but without any extraordinary strength, just superb fighting skills. The action consists mainly of large scale battles and political machinations. The story drags in spots, often due to romantic intrigue. 5/10
14. Santo vs The Vampire Women (1962)*
Santo must save the daughter of a friend from a horrible 200 year old curse. Probably the best and most famous of the Santo films. It starts out quite atmospheric as we meet the vampire women, as well done as in many non-wrestling Mexican horror films. The two wrestling bouts are entertaining, with the second being somewhat relevant to the plot. The cast is all B-movie adequate and the story moves along nicely. I found this very enjoyable. 7/10
15. Cyborg (1989)*
A knife-for-hire wants revenge on the pirate who killed his loved ones and has also captured a cyborg which has information critical to finding the cure for a terrible plague. It sounds complicated but basically its just one long chase with lots of fighting, screaming, yelling, grunting, and groaning. Pretty entertaining in a dumb kind of way except for the detailed flashbacks explaining why the hero has a mad on which really slow things down. Seriously, we got it the first time. A few unintentional laughs liven things up. 5/10
16. The Madmen of Mandoras (1963)* (BCI Drive-In Cult Classics Vol. 2)
A scientist who has developed a cure for the world's most deadly nerve gas is kidnapped and his daughter and son-in-law try to track him down. The lead is one of the most inept heroes ever. Luckily he is up against some of the most incompetent Nazis ever. The wife is annoying, her teenaged sister even more so and the whole thing bounced between domestic comedy and spy thriller. Nestor Pavia is OK but the whole thing is just kind of flat. The expressions on Hitler's head are often good for a laugh. 4/10

April 14
17. Blood Red Planet (2000)* (Brentwood Galaxy of Terror 4 Movie Set)
A planetoid suddenly appears orbiting Mars and simultaneously natural disasters begin to wreak havoc on Earth. A spaceship sent to investigate is destroyed by saucer like craft. Stupid lines spoken by mostly lame actors and a plot that includes many sf cliches from the 60's on. Who knew that space expeditions could be equipped from your local Home Depot and Best Buy stores? There are some laughs but more often stunned disbelief. Still there are a couple of good ideas in this mess and the creature design, if not the execution, is pretty good. My first Polonia brothers film. I will see more. 3/10
18. Blaze Starr Goes Nudist (1962)*
Overworked and exhausted actress Blaze Starr starts going to a nudist colony in order to relax. What little plot there is concerns Blaze's conflict with her boyfriend/manager about her weekend absences. Blaze never does seem to relax though, she's always fidgeting or posing -- a swim means bouncing up and down at the edge of the pool. Nude archery, volleyball, picnics, strawberry picking, chess and even sit down dancing are all on display. Not as good as Nude on the Moon because there are no spaceships, this is still a strangely pleasant movie to sit through. 4/10
19. Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)* (The Russ Meyer Collection R2)
Three tough go go dancers go after a bitter old man's fortune. Hot women, fast cars, brutal violence, its all exploitation gold. Engrossing story, full of twisted characters uses the desert setting well and deals with greed, the love of power, and sex as power. Stuart Lancaster as the old man and Tura Santana are both particularly good in their roles. I think Mudhoney is a slightly better movie but this is also a must see. 7/10
20. Head of the Family (1996)* (Full Moon The Charles Band DVD Collection Vol. 1)
A sly country retailer starts blackmailing a mysterious local family made up of genetic misfits. Cheesy, lighthearted, and fun with a clever premise. The acting is adequate for the most part and the makeup effects are OK. No big laughs but frequent nudity adds spice. 5/10

April 15
21. Switchblade Sisters (1975)* Streaming
The newest member of a girl gang, the Dagger Debs, unwittingly causes friction within the group and also between the leader and her gang member boyfriend. The lead actress Robbie Lee is totally unconvincing as the tough as nails leader of the Debs. Her very youthful appearance and voice don't help but the real problem is lack of acting ability. The rest of the gang are OK but their biggest rivals, a gang hiding behind a youth club front, likes to hang out Friday nights at the Roller Rink. Huh? Director Jack Hill keeps things moving along and there are some good action bits but overall this is nothing special. 5/10

April 16
22. Brain of Blood (1971)* (Image The Blood Island Vacation)
A doctor transplants the brain of the ruler of a middle eastern country into the body of a simple minded giant with a horribly scarred face. Movie starts OK with a slow zoom into a picture of the Taj Mahal and has some good cheesy laughs. But after the admittedly icky and entertaining brain surgery the film slows to a boring crawl with a totally un-scary trip through a random dungeon and an ambling kind of chase through the woods. B-movie stars Kent Taylor, Reed Hadley, and Grant Williams do creditable jobs but they can't save a script that runs out of good ideas way too soon. According to the notes, a followup to the Blood Island movies, this one lacks the energy that Eddie Romero brought to those films. 3/10

April 17
23. Shadowzone (1990)* (Full Moon Classics Volume One)
A small group of people are trapped in an underground research facility along with a murderous creature from another dimension that can change its size and shape. Very good monster on the loose movie with adequate acting and a pretty cool looking monster. It does wander into idiot plot territory for a while but I really liked the ending. 6/10

April 18
24. Vanishing Point (1971)*
A car courier tries to make it from Denver to San Francisco in 15 hours. He fails but attracts the attention of law enforcement in several states and becomes something of a hero to the counterculture. I watched the slightly longer UK version. An unusual movie, there aren't that many elaborate car stunts, the chases and traps usually end up with someone going off the road, but there is a lot of hard, fast driving which along with the vistas of desert landscape sometimes results in a dream-like quality. Various aspects of the counterculture are represented by quirky characters met along the way. We find out a little about the driver, Kowalski, but the motivations for major events remain unclear. A captivating film and one I might have had much stronger feelings for had I seen it for the first time back in the 70's. 7/10

April 19
25. Roadgames (1981)* (Oz-Ploitation Boxset Vol. 1 R4)
A truck driver, on a long haul across Australia, begins to suspect the driver of a green van is a serial killer. Not a action/chase movie as I was expecting but more of a Hitchcockian suspense film set on a highway. Perhaps due to incorrect expectations I had trouble getting into the story. The driver was just too charmingly quirky for his own good, as was demonstrated over and over again. I also found myself impatient during the first part of the film as some scenes seemed to go on forever, long after the point was made. However, the last 20-30 minutes were good and there was a nice sense of strangeness established by the Australian landscape and encounters with the same fellow travelers throughout the trip. 4/10

April 20
26. Moving Violations (1976)* (Action-Packed Double Feature)
Deep in the heart of Pigville, a drifter and a local girl witness the local sheriff shot one of his deputies. Car chases ensue. Our heroes are none too bright. Fortunately the law offices after them seem totally brain dead. Car chase scenes are OK, but get repetitive after a while. The story often lacks logic but is entertaining and an unexpected turn of events near the end really saves the film. 6/10
27. Fast Company (1979)* (Blue Underground Midnight Movies Car Crash Double Feature)
A company sponsored race car team facing increasing demands from the company agent while just trying to win races. Very entertaining movie, well filmed and directed with lots of exciting drag racing scenes and plenty of personal drama. Good cast but John Saxon is outstanding as the slimy corporate agent. 7/10
28. Murdercycle (1999)*
Three marines accompany a CIA agent and two scientists on a top secret mission. At first this seemed like just another small military unit vs powerful alien killer and it is but there are several neat touches that keep it interesting. All of the characters are named after comic book creators, most artists and mostly Marvel. 6/10
29. Preylien: Alien Predators (2004)* (Brentwood Galaxy of Terror 4 Movie Set)
A spaceship full of creatures from across the universe crashes on Earth and the monsters escape. More awfulness from the Polonia studio. I hoped that the creature designs would be interesting, and two were (kind of) but poorly executed. They reused the monster from Blood Red Planet and the fourth was a guy in a gorilla suit, red vest and fright mask. Very disappointing. The acting was bad but the worst part was the boredom. Way too much walking, running. and scrambling around in the woods. 2/10

April 21
30. The Brute and the Beast (1966)*
A wanderer is summoned back home and finds his hometown is owned by a rich man and his sadistic son. Intense, satisfying story well acted and directed. Not wall to wall action but what's there is well done and there's a nice sense of mystery and unease established early on. 7/10
31. Conquest (1983)*
In a savage world of haze, boobs, and gore, a young prince(?) from a more civilized land searches for evil to conquer (I think. Motivations are unclear in this picture.). A dark, grim fantasy world full of beastmen, cave dwellers, and demon things is an interesting take on the sword and sorcery genre. The constantly soft picture and leisurely pacing does result in the mind wandering a bit although an unexpected turn of events near the end keeps things interesting. 4/10
32. 2019: After the Fall of New York (1983)* (Media Blasters Post Apocalyptic Triple Feature)
Twenty years after the nuclear holocaust three men are sent to find the last fertile woman who is somewhere is New York City, now controlled by the evil Eurak Empire. Very entertaining, good use of industrial type settings to represent a ruined NYC, underground bases, etc. Also some decent miniature work helps set the stage. Much of the film is one chase after another but they move along well and have a variety of settings. Quirky characters, OK acting, good stunts. 6/10
33. The Italian Connection (1972)* (Raro Vidoe Fernando Di Leo Crime Collection)
A pimp finds himself being hunted by the mob but he has no idea why they are after him. Excellent gritty crime drama, well acted and well paced with just the right amount of action. Goes in a totally different direction from what I expected from the beginning of the movie. 8/10

April 22
An Albert Pyun double feature
34. The Wrecking Crew (2000)*
The Wrecking Crew is a paramilitary outfit, possibly made up of ex-gang members, who are called on by police to wipe out gangs which have become too much for law enforcement to tackle. This week, Detroit. There's not really much plot to this movie and its all set up during the first fifteen minutes or so. This is followed by a stylish but long gunfight staged by John Woo fans. Then there's just a little more plot, more gun fights, and a fiery finish. Ice-T poses a lot and looks cool. The soundtrack is all rap music which I didn't care for that much. At least I was never bored. 4/10
35. Dollman (1991)* (Full Moon The Dollman/Demonic Toys Boxset)
A hard bitten policeman from another planet finds himself on Earth, in the South Bronx, where he is only a foot tall compared to human beings. The small size is not really used to great effect and except for a few scenes you never really get a sense of living in a world of giants. Typical gang opponents except for the dimensional bomb of course. The acting is OK with Tim Thomerson pretty solid as the hero. Fun. I liked the floating head guy. Good but not great. 5/10

April 23
36. Portland Expose (1957)* (VCI Forgotten Noir Collectors Set Series One)
A powerful new mob is moving into Portland and a bar owner they're shaking down becomes an informant for a citizens' committee. Funding for the mob may be coming from corrupt union officials since an honest union leader is head of the committee. OK, good acting but predictable plot. Frank Gorshin and Joe Flynn (McHale's Navy) have small but important roles. 5/10

April 24
37. Bowanga Bowanga: White Sirens of Africa (1951)* (aka Wild Women) (SWV Primitive Triple Feature)
A small safari in Africa is captured by a tribe of white women wearing animal skin bikinis. The queen wants to add the strongest one to her collection of husbands but some of her subjects object. Kind of a muddle with some poorly done fights and bad acting. Drags a bit. Stars the very first live action Batman, Lewis Wilson. 4/10
38. Wild Women of Wongo (1958)* (SWV Primitive Triple Feature)
The hormone filled teenage girls of the Wongo tribe are hot for the muscle bound oafs of the Goona tribe, but will the vicious but clumsy ape-men destroy them all? Pretty much a dumb teen comedy set in the jungle but without much comedy. A colorful parrot squawks and talks providing kind of a solo Greek chorus to the happenings. Mildly amusing at times but mostly pretty damn stupid. 3/10
39. Virgin Sacrifice (1959)* (SWV Primitive Triple Feature)
In the jungles of Central America, members of a tribe that practices human sacrifice capture a young woman who's a friend of a hunter who killed the tribe's sacred jaguar. The hunter takes off in pursuit. Actually pretty good -- basically a chase through the jungle with some clever tricks and traps set to stop the hunter. Moves along well and even generates some suspense at times. Below par acting. 5/10
including trailers (I must see I Married A Savage someday) and nudie short Forbidden Daughters (1927!)

April 25
40. Creature of Destruction (1967)* (Retromedia Sci-Fi Trash-o-rama)
A hypnotist who studies past live regressions begins to correctly predict a series of grisly murders at a lake side resort where he is performing. A made for TV color remake of The She Creature. The monster is silly and it's shown too early and too often, but with a little imagination I think it looks OK. There is some genuine tension and a nice eerie atmosphere established early on which unfortunately doesn't last too long. Les Tremayne, as the hypnotist, adds some class and most of the rest of the cast are OK. One of the better Larry Buchanan remakes that I've seen. 4/10
41. UFO: Target Earth (1974)* (Retromedia Sci-Fi Trash-o-rama)
A university researcher overhears a telephone call which causes him to begin investigating UFOs. This happens in the first couple of minutes. For the next 75 minutes or so, nothing makes any sense. Dialog often consists of random words strung together. There are some strange occurrences but you feel like nothing is happening. I kept watching hoping that something, anything would begin to make sense. Finally, when a hint of an explanation is offered in the last few minutes (followed by a bargain basement light show) it is so mind-boggling stupid that I wanted to break something. I have never before felt the almost physical pain I experienced while watching this movie. I now know what "deep hurting" really means. 1/10
including UFO documentary short The Flying Saucer Mystery (1952?) and three toy commercials from the days when they really could put an eye out!
42. Tribulation (2000)*
A detective goes into a coma before The Rapture. When he awakes millions have vanished, including his sister, and the anti-Christ is on the verge of taking control of all of humanity. Third in the series produced by the Jack van Impe ministries, this one features Gary Busey, Howie Mandel, and Margot Kidder. Again, a well done, exciting movie. To my surprise I've enjoyed all of this series and look forward to seeing the fourth and last one during next year's challenge. 6/10

April 26
43. Malibu High (1979)* (BCI Drive-In Cult Classics)
High school senior Kim, with a bad attitude and abrasive personality, decides to use her body to improve her grades and pick up some cash. Given the title I was expecting a teen sex comedy, not this sleazy bit of nastiness. Lots of bare breasts and tame sex scenes which became tedious after a while. Acting was below average, especially the lead. 4/10
44. Cindy and Donna (1970)* (BCI Drive-In Cult Classics)
Pity 17 year old Cindy; her mother is an alcoholic, her father likes hookers better than being home, her older step-sister, Donna, is a nymphomaniac, her best friend keeps trying to get Cindy laid, and poor Cindy just doesn't get this whole sex thing. Lots of nudity and almost softcore sex scenes. What plot there is moves slowly. The end, while shocking, is totally unsatisfying and bodes ill for Cindy's future sexual happiness. 4/10

April 27
45. Indecent Desires (1968)* (SWV Doris Wishman Double Feature)
A creepy guy who likes to rummage through trash finds a doll and then sees a woman on the street who reminds him of the doll. A mystic connection is made and the woman feels whatever the guy does to the doll! I bet you can see where this is going. Novel idea and and the actor playing creepy guy is pretty good but the overall pacing is awful. Lots of bare breasts and dressing and undressing scenes. 3/10
46. My Brother's Wife (1966)* (SWV Doris Wishman Double Feature)
A scumbag seduces his older brother's affection starved wife while carrying on with an old flame. Very sleazy, not many bare breasts but lots of prancing around in undies or sexy outfits. Also lots of shots of feet or even entire legs walking. At one point I almost cared about the conflict between the two brothers. Mercifully short. 3/10
including The Doris Wishman Trailer Show (15 trailers!) plus two nudie shorts The Room Mates and Music to Strip By. Yowsah!
47. Deathsport (1978)*
In a post-apocalyptic future the mad ruler of a city state wants to prove that his Death Machines can make anyone more powerful than the mystically powered Ranger Guides. This excuse for a plot allows lots of motorcycle action, explosions (many seem to occur for no reason at all but are cool) and general mayhem. David Carradine is stoic, Claudia Jennings is lovely and Richard Lynch is evil. Fun and satisfying if predictable. 6/10
48. Brute Corps (1971)*
In Mexico two hitchhikers meet up with a band of American mercenaries waiting for more men to arrive. One of the men takes a shine to the female hitchhiker, trouble follows. Nasty but pretty absorbing. 5/10
49. Terminal Island (1973)*
After the death penalty is declared illegal, California begins to exile those convicted of first-degree murder to a remote island, which is controlled by a sadistic psycho who is opposed by a small band who have escaped his influence. Pretty good action movie, not too sleazy. 6/10
50. Feeders (1996)*
Two guys on a road trip through Pennsylvania run into UFO's and killer aliens. Not that good of a movie but the best of the three Polonia Brothers films I've seen. The acting is often tolerable, there is a plot, and there are moments that are almost suspenseful or exciting. The pacing still leaves much to be desired and it would have helped a lot if the aliens hadn't looked so ... not alive and moved as if they were just falling over. 4/10

April 28
51. Duke of the Navy (1942)* (Sinister Cinema Poverty Row Studio Collection PRC Vol. 7)
A sailor, who shares the same last name as a wealthy family but nothing else, runs into a con man with a treasure map. A pleasant trifle starring Ralph Byrd (Dick Tracy) who turns out to be pretty good with light comedy. 5/10
52. The Missing Corpse (1945)* (Sinister Cinema Poverty Row Studio Collection PRC Vol. 7)
A shady newspaper publisher is murdered and his body ends up in a rival's car trunk. Comedy mystery of the "Now you see the body, now you don't" type is almost amusing at times. Not really my cup of tea but a good cast helps. 5/10
53. Blond Savage (1947)* (Sinister Cinema Poverty Row Studio Collection PRC Vol. 7)
Two adventurers and their airplane are hired by the owner of a diamond mine in Africa to locate the village of some troublesome natives. Solid jungle adventure with just the right amount of stock footage. Good cast. 6/10
54. Slaves in Bondage (1937)* (Sinister Cinema Poverty Row Studio Collection Roadshow Attractions Vol. 1)
The owner of a manicure parlor runs ads attracting small town girls to the big city and then steers them on the road to vice and prostitution. Despite the lurid title pretty much a straight rackets story but there are a couple of nice lingerie lounging scenes and some good-natured spanking going on in the Asian room! Filled with familiar faces from b-movies and serials including director Elmer Clifton and frequent serial baddie John Merton. 5/10
55. Seedpeople (1992)* (Full Moon Classics Volume One)
A geologist returns to his home town and finds many people acting very strange. Ripoff, homage or whatever, this shares the same idea and structure as Invasion of the Body Snatchers but there are some neat looking monsters and it is a pleasant watch. 5/10
56. Netherworld (1992)* (Full Moon Classics Volume One)
A man tries to resurrect his father. Has a nice Bayou atmosphere, great location shots, creepiness, supernatural horror and a few small surprises. Very well done. 7/10

April 29
57. Bad Channels (1992)* (Full Moon Classics Volume One)
A shock jock is trapped in a radio studio with aliens but the world thinks its just a publicity stunt. Loud and silly, some of the musical numbers helped keep my interest but I was glad when it was over. 4/10
58. Hell Up In Harlem (1973)*
Sequel to Black Caesar. Kind of a disjointed story, wraps up stuff from the first movie and gets Tommy Gibbs back on top then a story finally emerges. Things just sometimes seem to happen for no reason and even the action scenes seem a bit perfunctory. Also, Gibbs is kind of a dick. Good songs and music. 4/10
59. Snake Crane Secret (1976)* (Mill Creek Martial Arts 20 Movie Pack Disc 5)
Agents of the Ching Dynasty search for a book of kung fu secrets that also contains a list of rebel leaders -- or something like that. Fun fights, likeable characters, and a mostly understandable if not too original plot. 5/10

April 30
60. The Crippled Masters (1979)* (Mill Creek Martial Arts 20 Movie Pack Disc 5)
An evil kung fu master has two of his men mutilated for reasons not made clear. One has both of his arms cut off and the other has both legs destroyed by acid. They team up and train to get revenge on the evil one. Pretty standard kung fu film except the the amazing fight scenes involved the two lead actors, who really are disabled and know martial arts. The actor who plays the villain also does a good job. 6/10

Sunday & Monday, 3/31 - 4/1
TV MOVIE DOUBLE FEATURE
1. Annihilator (1986) ☼ - Extremely entertaining NBC made-for-TV movie from Roderick Taylor (of Otherworld (http://www.otherworldonline.org/?page_id=42) fame) about Terminator-esque Android killers called 'Dynamitards' that have replaced certain humans. It's an unsold pilot that never made it to series, so we unfortunately never find out just what the hell these things are or where they came from.
2. K-9000 (1991) ☼ - Another unsold pilot/TV movie about a genetically engineered canine with human DNA and a microchip in its brain that communicates telepathically with a cop. Think Turner & Hooch meets Lethal Weapon by way of Knight Rider.

RUDY RAY MOORE 2-FER
3. The Human Tornado (1976) NWI ☼ - "He think he's bad and ain't got no class! I'm gon' rock this shotgun up his muthafuckin' ass!"
4. Disco Godfather (1979) NWI ☼ - "Put your weight on it!"

_______________________________________

Tuesday, April 2nd
SUB 60 MINUTE 2SOME
5. Nightshift Nurses (1970) ☼ 55 Min - I somehow confused "Nightshift Nurses" for "The Student Nurses". Mistook it for Corman's first nurse film (the latter), but instead ended up with an early 70's porno with a nickel and dime budget that I watched anyway. I sincerely wish I could undo that mistake, although it probably explains the nightmare I had last night where a giant Chinchilla wrapped in shag carpeting attacked me.
6. The Girl Who Dared (1944) ☼ NWI 52 Min - Decent Old Dark House film that differentiates itself from the others due to a portion taking place outside and in an underground cave.

TWO IN MEMORY OF UNCLE JESS (1930 - 2013)
7. The Awful Dr. Orlof (1962) TCMU - Basically it's Franco's version of "Eyes Without a Face" and it's not bad. Gives Bava a run for his money in the atmosphere department.
8. Dr. Orloff's Monster (aka "The Mistresses of Dr. Jekyll") (1964) ☼ NWI - Unfortunately I caught the Netflix streaming version that omits 10 minutes of footage. Still, a decent followup to the original, although really more of a remake than a sequel. The zombie controlled by radio waves gave it somewhat of a Sci-Fi feel due to the accompanying music.

Gave up on reviews after 3 days - New challenge record!

April 1
1. Daimajin Strikes Again* (Kazuo Mori, 1966, Blu-ray) The final part of the trilogy is just as strong as the previous 2. 8/10
2. Lady Street Fighter* (James Bryan, 1985, DVD) A few moments save it from being a total waste. 4/10
3. Revenge Of The Bushido Blade* (Jay Wertz, 1980, DVD) Wasted potential by keeping this bland and too long. 4/10

8. Eye Of The Tiger* (Richard Sarafian, 1986, DVD) "We are praying for the soul of your wife" "No, father." "Well what for then?" "I'm praying for vengeance." 8/10

Black Samson (1974) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: So I have to admit that I was a little underwhelmed. Perhaps because this one was touted as being a must see in the main thread. The lion was a fun element but you could tell he was drugged up a lot or being fed snacks. I can only imagine the awesome lion related stories that a commentary for this movie could have had. Otherwise the movie was a bit by the numbers, evil white guys, hot white girl that comes to appreciate the black lead, ect. I did really like the psycho evil white guy and the climax of the movie was epic enough to bump this one up to above average.

Shadow Zone (1990) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Ah, now this is my kind of B-Movie! Low budget 80's/90's sci-fi; boobs, puppet creatures, Lo Pan, monkey's, computers that can answer questions/make guesses. We almost have that last one with Siri but it's still not up to the point that 80's sci-fi promised. The movie is a lovely slurry of other Sci-Fi properties in much the same way Leviathan was. It does drags a bit in the end but delivers on the intrigue and some interesting Lovcraftian vibes. A fine representation of Full Moon's 'A' material.

Killjoy (2000) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: WTF? Seriously Full Moon, how could you go in just a decade from making decent movies like Shadowzone to making this kind of trash? It is rare that I give out my lowest possible score of 1 out of 5 but this movie has nothing going for it. Strike that, one pair of nice tits but otherwise this is essentially trash. I find it a travesty that this film has 3 sequels and even worse that I own 2 of them (even if they were free).

The Marine (2006) (TV) *
My Thoughts: I remember seeing trailers for this, seeing it stared a WWF type and thinking that it was probably just mindless red state exploitative trash. And it was. But I caught the first part on tv and it was so ridiculous that I just had to keep watching. There are some indestructible cars, buildings that explode way more then they should, 3 or 4 jumping in front of explosion shots and Robert Patrick as the villain was fun but they played it a little too loose with the 4th wall. In the end it really is just what you think it is, kind of like those 90's Seagal movies except made today.

The Exterminator (1980) (Blu-Ray) *
My Thoughts: Great movie, an excellent companion piece to Maniac. Set in a grimy 80's New York, a Vietnam vet gets pushed to far and decides to take the law into his own hands. The slow burn/prep moments are really effective here, which is something I only point out as this seems to detract and throw other movies out of rhythm. Quite a pleasant surprise, now I am defiantly looking forward to the squeal here later in the challenge.

Commentary For The Exterminator (1980) (Blu-Ray) *
My Thoughts: An interesting track, lots of bits about the MPAA, shooting in New York, penises/legs on the wall. One interesting notion was that the director, clearly who had no part in the sequel, said he liked to think that First Blood was the real spiritual sequel to The Exterminator. And a fairly recent topical track at that as at one point Avatar is brought up. Well worth a listen.

Killjoy 2 (2002) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Well, another pile of shit from Full Moon. This one is not near as bad as the first one and hits a lot closer to the Leprechaun In The Hood vibe that this series was aiming for. And I'll even give it another half star for having a movie specific tie-in song over the credits.

Ninja Powerforce (1988) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Hey!?! This isn't a ninja movie! It is a standard Hong Kong hood movie with several scenes of white people dressed a ninja outfits and acting ridiculously spliced in. And I am talking white people in banana yellow and crayon red ninja costumes here. While it is a horrible Frankenstein piece of celluloid it does come out as passible and even a bit humorous in the distributions company's editing audacity.

42nd Street Forever Vol 5: Alamo Drafthouse (2009) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: I don't really go in for trailer collections on the principal that they spoil too much. But I had heard so many good things about this series, and have developed quite a soft spot for the Alamo Drafthouse after all the cool things they have sold me for my walls, that I decided to give it a go. And I was not disappointed, it's a different experience from a movie, alway at climax no time to recoup but it works quite well. I could have gone for a few more non-trailer items in the mix but still a highly enjoyable experience. Also I made a list of 17 titles to procure (if possible) while watching.

Emanuelle And The White Slave Trade (1978) (DVD) **
My Thoughts: Another fun sexy travelog with Black Emanuelle. This time to Kenya, New York and San Diego, I do hope one day to be as well traveled as Laura Gemser. This one felt a bit paint by numbers compared to the outings in the first box set. But still lots of sex and the lovely Mrs Gemser constantly naked makes this an enjoyable, if not wholly unoriginal, experience.
(3 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: Sexy Emanuelle... and I guess she get the tanned, skin looks different than last time. I can guess what is going to happen because all stories are same; she get involved something then she get raped then she has sex again. They need to make better story but I enjoy Africa scene, I enjoy animal.

Ninja Phantom Heroes (1987) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: This, like the last "Ninja" movie I watched, is a Ninjas added later affair. The took another, less entertaining, Chinese mafia movie and pasted in scenes of white guys dressed like Ninja's doing lame martial arts. Overall I was mostly bored but the last 5 minutes did migrate into 'so bad it's good' territory, but only the last 5 minutes.

The Grand Duel (1972) (Blu-Ray) *
My Thoughts: Hey, it's that song from Kill Bill! And the guy that is The Bad from The Good, The Bad & The Ugly! And this was actually a really good Spaghetti Western. I must admit to lowered expectations after the last Mill Creek Spaghetti Western 2 pack BR, but this one alone was worth the cost of admission.

Killjoy 3 (2010) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Well color me surprised, this one was even better than the last one. Still not in the range of a passable movie but at the rate these are improving Killjoy 7 is set up to be a masterpiece. They branched away from the Leprechaun dynamic here and brought in Hellraiser and Nightmare on Elm Street and a much better cast and got something not awful. The Harley Quinn-ish demon clown was even kind of hot in a weird way. And I don't think I would ever have envisioned myself saying this but I am looking forward to the next one.

Three The Hard Way (1974) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Honkey's found a toxin that will only kill black people and there is only 3 bad ass brothers who can stop him. Blaxploitation at it's finest, car chases/crashes, nudity, kung-fu and a bunch of evil crackers. I was actually called a cracker just last month and the only thing that really came to mind was this challenge and wanting to see some good Blaxploitation of which this one one delivered on.

Screaming In High Heels (2011) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Subtitle: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era. I got this as a prize during the OHMC and it was amazing. Now I feel I must preface this with the fact that it has to be something you are into but if you are then buy it buy it buy it! The doc focuses on the the three main Scream Queens, Linnea Quigley, Michelle Bauer & Brinke Stevens, the uptick and downfall of the independent video market and even the convention scene. Everything covered here had a profound effect on my youth and I loved reliving all of it. And I can't believe how many clips were shown from movies I have yet to acquire. I feel i am getting a litter hyperbolic at this point but this has easily supplanted Never Sleep Again as my favorite horror retrospective.

Golden Ninja Invasion (1987) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: First off there are no golden ninja's in this movie. There are Red Sun Ninjas and a Blue Ninja. The ladder a white guy edited into the movie. This time they at least had some interaction with the edited in guy via having him always being on the other end of the phone. Then there is the music which directly steals songs from horror movies, it is really weird to be watching an action movie where they are constantly playing the Nightmare on Elm Street theme. The whole movie is really just an incoherent mess but it really fits the challenge and would lend it's self well to Rifftrakery. It was at least interesting trash.

The World Sinks Except Japan (2006) (DVD) **
My Thoughts: So I was kind of expecting a sci-fi end of the world destruction extravaganza here and yeah not so much. It was more of a dark goofy political comedy about the plague of foreigners that are forced to take up residents in Japan after the rest of the world sinks. Kind of degrading, kind of funny and an interesting look into the Japanese culture's psyche in regards to "foreigners".
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: Very strange/creepy and I'm sure this movie didn't do well foreign country except Japan. But they use ok actor Japanese wise but foreigner very low budget.

Famous T & A (1982) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: It seems like it would be hard to mess up a boob compilation. But they did. There is some nice nudity here but also a lot of scenes which out of context are really boring and there is way too much focus on a bright red sun-brunt ass. The best part of this one was the Charles Band intro but since that is on ever Grindhouse release it's not much of a selling point.

Video Violence 2 (1987) (DVD) **
My Thoughts: Big step down from the original, no mystery here this time just a continuation of the snuff TV show that was only just bearable in the first movie. This time it stretched the length of the feature and I think played a pretty big part in my headache tonight.
(1.5 out of 5)
My Wife'sThoughts: It was so boring the first 1 hour I almost fall asleep and seems like home video taping it's not like movie, I can make it. The last 20 minutes were good but I can give them 2 star because it was sucked.

Wacky Taxi (1972) (DVD) *

In Like Flint (1967) (DVD)
My Thoughts: Flints back and this time he has to stop an organization of power hungry women from taking over the world. The character is still a lovable asshole (reminds me a lot of Archer (a brainier Archer)) but they go a bit too far into the comedy aspect this time and it often falls flat. Such as a scene were he is suppose to be singing in a foreign language but really just saying 'La La La La' whilst a red star is bouncing across equally non-sensical foreign words on the bottom of the screen. Still an entertaining outing with interesting parallels to future Bond movies.

Lonely Wives (1972) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: A surprisingly good German housewife sexploitation. Funny, sexy, everything you want out of one of these movie and those German girls, not guilty. On a DVD production note; Code Red, what is up with the menus? You already have this great Drive-In them for the package but the menus for these say Septic Cinema and have crappy rendered crap on them, wtf? I am guessing that was the original theme and you never bothered to change it prior to release, how could you think Septic Cinema would sell? 'I know lets equate the movies we are selling to fecal matter', I mean come on Code Red!

Vigilante (1983) (Blu-Ray) **
My Thoughts: This movie blew me away. Very similar to The Exterminator except just a little bit better in every way. I remember watching the opening and thinking 'oh man something horrible is going to happen to that family, they are having much too good of a wholesome time in New York'. So far this is my front runner for best of challenge.

My Wife's Thoughts: Good, but I need little more story around the ending. Because he just killed 2 people come on, he suppose to get back with wife, better story, better ending. Demo very scary and good suspense.

Viva Django (1968) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: A decent knockoff and while not technically a better movie than Keoma I did like it better. This time Django is a hangman who collects a posse by faking the deaths of the people he is hanging. I was initially a little disappointed coming out of the original Django but I am on board now, bring on the clones. On a release note; the set this came in labels this as Viva Django but it actually appears to be Django, Prepare A Coffin, also pictureboxed, grrrr.

Hot Potato (1976) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: I am not sure if this really even qualifies as a blaxploitation title anymore, it's more of an enable action adventure comedy. Basically Black-Belt Jones goes to Thailand. I really enjoyed this one, American movies set abroad really resonate with me for some reason. White guys with Asian girls perhaps? Or it could have been somewhat influenced by the 10 point beer... But I think the think I really liked the most that whitey wasn't the bad guy!

Savage Island (1985) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: An interesting hodgepodge, apparently Charles Band bought a foreign 'woman jungle slaves' type movie and then shot a day with Linda Blair and edited the two together into a less than cohesive story. By themselves I probably would have enjoyed both movies, together they mutually detracted from the other. Still an interesting idea, someday I would like to watch this with someone who didn't know the background behind to gauge their reaction.

Superargo (1968) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Not to be confused, like I did, with Argoman. Since they are both seemingly based on the same character I wonder if this is a foreign comic book or something? In this one he is a ex-wrestler turned telepathic crime stopper. It has overtones of bad 50's robot/alien movies an evil layer set in what is clearly a tourist attraction cave, overall very on the nose for the challenge I just was, unfortunately, not in the right frame of mind to really enjoy it this time. But I'll give it another chance in a decade or so.

Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except (1987) (Blu-Ray) *
My Thoughts: This one of those movies that I picked up over and over again in stores but never actually purchased. And that is probably for the best as if I had seen it outside of the context of this challenge I think I would have been very disappointed, especially with the names attached. Otherwise it's marines vs crazed hippies and while it is a bit slow to climax and painfully low budget, there is some shlocky fun to be had here. I am kind of amazed that this is a movie I now own on blu-ray.

Commentary For Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except (1987) (Blu-Ray) *
My Thoughts: Kind of a flat track but given the source material you can't really blame them. Also it has Bruce Campbell and even Bruce Campbell not being terribly interesting makes it still better than most tracks. Highlights include ragging on Sam Raimi, Bruce saying things like "thats my foot in that insert, you can tell by how well it was acted" and some interesting things about the woes of a low budget production. Not a phenomenal track but still slightly better than the movie.

Riot On 42nd St (1987) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: There was something about this movie that hit me just right. The music, the actors, the tits, crime ridden New York, in the 80's it seemed to be a recipe for success. Instead of having a lead walk by the seedy strip clubs this one is about owning and operating said seedy strip clubs! On the DVD production side; this host Maria is no Elvira but still way way better than the Septic Cinema theme they had going with previous releases.

Bad Girls Dormitory (1986) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: I really wanted to love this but it just didn't work. The girls weren't pretty enough or good enough actors they were naked frequently but more for quantity's sake. Also, not something I rag on often, but the editing was awful, they lingered on scenes way way too long, probably in an effort to boost screen time but it just really started to annoy me. I will give the host props fro hating on it a bit but she should have been much much harsher.

Tedeum (1972) (DVD) *

King Frat (1979) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: A super low brow Animal House knock off. Which I might have liked if 90% of the jokes weren't about shitting and farting. They even go so far as to have an on stage farting competition. There was about 20 minutes of entertainment here though and the King Frat song is still stuck in my head. On a DVD production note (seems I am making a lot of these in regards to Code Red properties): You couldn't get one screen grab or anything from this movie? You just had to use your face (Code Red owner) on the cover? Really?

Cheering Section (1977) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Plenty of sex in this one but like most comedies it did not age well and ends up being more boring than entertaining (that is something that might have been exacerbated due to the poop picture quality). Also another movie specific song, I forgot how common this was, it is a trend that should come back.

The Revenge Of Trinity (1970) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: As I get deeper and deeper into this spaghetti western thing there are 4 words that seems to be repeated over and over; DJango, Terrence, Bud & Trinity. A cursory google search shows this to be an in name only Trinity movie but it was still decent. I avoided westerns for so long due to it being the only thing my grandfather ever watched and it kind of being categorized as an old person genre for a long time, but there is a great wealth of entertainment here. Even in mediocre titles such as this.

Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (2013) (TV) (Wild Card #1) *
My Thoughts: There are some shockumentary elements here as Bourdain eats his way across Myanmar, enough maybe even to justify wildcard usage. Quite an interesting look at a place that I thought had zero allowed tourism. There were a lot of things I would really enjoy going and doing if not quite eating in Myanmar. Also why is this on CNN? Are they trying to branch out like MTV did? I hope so if this is a good example of the quality we can expect.

Black Belt Jones (1974) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: This was a really good 4 pack; Black Samson, Black Belt Jones, Hot Potato and Three The Hard Way (That is the order I suggest watching them in btw). Also I love how Warner Brothers couldn't bring themselves to say Blaxploitation and had to call it an Urban Action collection. Black Belt Jones plays like your standard Kung-Fu school movie. Threat to the school, headmaster killed, only one man can save us. There are some over the top fun variations on the theme, double crosses and some really weird beach fight/chase seduction sex. If it is a genre you are interested in this is a must see.

My Thoughts: This one plays the most like a video game out of any from the series and that is not necessarily a good thing. I was partial to parts 3 & 4 and the post apocalyptic setting. This one is a bit too sterile and contained in a still perfectly functioning Umprella base. But it was still an amazing showpiece for my 3DTV.

Female Demon Ohyaku (1968) (DVD) **
My Thoughts: Not quite the Pinky Violence outing I was expecting but still quite good. Sometimes I think I should just buy the whole Synapse library, I would most defiantly sign up for it if it were done with a subscription service. This one plays a lot like classic Japanese movies set in the time of Samurai and courtesans but gets progressively more and more exploitative as the the film progresses. High class trash.

Convoy Buddies (1976) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: By all accounts this wasn't a good movie, it was ridiculous, stupid, often poorly acted/dubbed, the video quality was awful but I loved it. A slapstick 70's comedy about 2 idiot vagabonds who sign up to truck a load from Italy to France. While I admit alcohol might have played a slight roll in my enjoyment here there was also something about this duo of actors that just made this a treat.

Sorry Wrong Bedroom (1973) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: Another German sexploitation, there is something abut those German girls and their Oktoberfest outfits. This one is about a German strip club that decides that it's clients want more country girls. Which means girls from Holland I guess? Anyway it turns into a road trip movie and has lots and lots of naked European girls. There is some weird off putting dubbing where girls refer to sex as making whoopee (there is something about that particular piece of 70's vernacular that really doesn't work for me), but it is thankfully infrequent.

V.I. Warshawski (1991) (Blu-Ray) *
My Thoughts: Woah, this is the most 90's thing I have seen in quite awhile. Plays like a super cliched 90's tv show with just enough swear words sprinkled throughout for plausible deniability to be categorized as an actual movie while remaining easy to televise with just a little dubbing. It is pretty bad and I think this title will have the dubious distinction of being the first Blu-Ray I get rid of (and I still have VHS tapes). What happened Kathleen Turner?

My Thoughts: Kind of a by the numbers blaxploitation but still fairly entertaining. Liked the sex crazed white girls, in fact lots of nudity all around, and I think one ball slip for the ladies.

Red Scorpion (1988) (Blu-Ray) **
My Thoughts: I never really covered the Russians in africa in any history classes I ever had so I always find movies about that period fascinating and this was no exception. That and we have Dolph just generally being awesome and doing the Avatar/Dances with Wolves thing. I obviously really liked this movie so instead of gushing I will relate a brief aside I had with the wife. There was a scene where the Russians are moving in and attacking this village with flamethrowers and the wife says: "Bad Americans". To which I reply "Those are Russians". She thinks about it for a second and says "All white people the same".

There is this song that plays throughout both movies that is so 70's/weird/out of place but is so oddly amusing. As you can see I am struggling to accurately explain what this movie does for me when I could really just say fun goofy Italian slapstick comedy. I don't have nearly enough Italian movies, that is something I should rectify.

The Call Him Bulldozer (1978) (DVD) *
My Thoughts: OK I am going to say WTF here on the Spaghetti Western Bible 10 pack, I think the majority of the movies I have watched from this set haven't been westerns at all. This one is about a disgraced former football player who trains a team of neighborhood street rats to play football against some army guys who are harassing him for almost no reason. Had this movie been American I would have had almost zero interest in it at all but as an Italian film pretending to be an American film it holds a certain amount of interest. But otherwise it's just kind of average.

Wandering Ginza Butterfly (1971) (DVD) **
My Thoughts: I, like many, became a fan of Meiko Kaji following the release of Kill Bill Vol 1. There was even a point where I had all region 1 releases starring her but I drifted into other things and trailed off. So this is the first Kaji fix I have had in years and I really enjoyed it. Radiant and deadly as ever and it would seem Kill Bill Vol 1. owes quite a bit of it's climax to this movie (perhaps). Also it was fun to see her play the hostess roll which is completely out of character for everything I have ever seen her in. I think I will have to get back into the Meiko Kaji racket.
(4.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: It's great movie, sad ending, I did not expect that ending. I saw many famous actors now. Meiko Kaji very pretty but where is she now?

My Thoughts: Double picture boxes!! Almost, they took the original cut off the sides for full screen, then that print was taken and made widescreen but in a full screen picture (bars added to the top and bottom). The movie content wise as a lot more mediocre than it's plot synopsis would belie. Not tear your eyes out bad or anything but not the bang I was really wanting to go out on for the challenge.

4th Annual Drive-In Exploitation B-Movie Challenge


Goal of the Challenge - 100 films + Checklist
I will use a letter grade scale A+ - F

First Time watches: 55 out of 57


T&A denotes tits and ass. The film features nudity to some degree. I will indicate whether it's MILD (standard T&A, some boobs, butt shots), HOT (sex scenes, copious T&A, maybe full frontal), or
X-TRA SPICY (full frontal and lots of sexy stuff).


April 1
001. Creepers (AKA: Troll 3; The Crawlers; Contamination .7; Fabrizio Laurenti credited as Martin Newlin; Joe D'Amato credited as David Hills, 1993) Low-rent eco-terror clearly derived its plot from the tree rape sequence in The Evil Dead. Feels more '83 than '93. D'Amato must have promised Laura Gemser her "gig" as costume designer in return for at least one Emmanuelle flick. Checklist Grade: C-
002. I Saw What You Did (Fred Walton, 1988) This was my April Fool's Day pick since it involves a telephone crank call gone terribly wrong. It also features not one but two Carradines! Shawnee Smith is very attractive in this MOW remake of the minor cult classic. Checklist Grade: C
003. Demolition University (Kevin S. Tenney, 1988) Had higher hopes for this one because I enjoyed Demolition High and director Tenney's Pinocchio's Revenge which I'd checked out for last year's horror challenge. Corey Haim fights like a girl (and with one) and what's up with his eyebrows? Checklist Grade: D+

April 2
004. Running Red (Jerry P. Jacobs, 1999) Four films and not an ounce of T&A. PM Entertainment still delivers on the action scenes, but Jeff Speakman was leaner and meaner as The Perfect Weapon. Checklist Grade: C
005. Brainsmasher...A Love Story (Albert Pyun, 1993) I like Dice Clay, but a PG-13 film is no place for him. Nor does the rating work well when you have Teri Hatcher as a perpetually-clothed stripper in hooker boots. Another bummer from Pyun but it does feature flying ninjas. Checklist Grade: C-
006. The Girl From Rio (AKA: Future Women; Rio 70; Die sieben Männer der Sumuru ; Jesús Franco credited as Jess Franco, 1969) Lusciously photographed nonsense under the guise of Eurospy from the ubiquitous Franco. Rest in Peace, man. I do prefer his later more horror-oriented stuff to this fluff. Hope for a better experience with my second half of a tribute double-bill Checklist MILD T&A Grade: D
007. The Peeping Tom and the Exhibitionist (AKA: El mirón y la exhibicionista; Jesús Franco and Lina Romay credited as Lulu Laverne, 1986) Some hardcore Jess Franco was the perfect nightcap. Lina Romay is older and chunkier, but still insatiable. Rest in Peace, too, sexy lady. Simple and stylish porn flick. Checklist X-TRA SPICY (XXX) T&A Grade: B-

April 3
08. Violated (Richard Cannistraro, 1984) This was the real deal and I feel like my B-Movie challenge has finally kicked off. A misogynistic joy ride through a cinema from an alternate reality called the 1980s. It had my attention from the Vestron Video logo. Features John Heard "before he was famous" if we're still keeping track of that kind of thing. Bonus: The amazing little brother/big sister scenes are worth watching it for...trust me. Checklist HOT T&A Grade: A-

April 4
09. Death Commando (AKA: The Boss; Il Boss; Killer vs Killers; Fernando Di Leo, 1973) Henry Silva is stoic wielding his "cannon" and he can sure blow up shit real good. Lots of goofy stuff leading up to a decently explosive climax, but I was underwhelmed by all the chatter. Checklist MILD T&A Grade: C-
10. Spring Breakers (Harmony Korine, 2012) When the creator of Gummo and Trash Humpers offers up teen idols popping their Disney-fied cherries and breaking bad as femme fatales who steal and kill for their american daydreams call it Where the Boys Are: Extreme Edition. It's also my checklist entry for juvenile delinquency, bitches. Checklist MILD T&A Grade: A
11. House of Whipcord (Pete Walker, 1974) These older British horror films are always so eerie and this one sprinkles a bit of sleaze into the mix. This unconventional WIP flick needed more whipping, though. But I'm jaded. Checklist MILD T&A Grade: C-

April 5
12. The Dungeonmaster (AKA: Ragewar; Various, 1984) This is kind of a makeshift anthology that apparently had its title changed to appeal to the D&D crowd of the era. It's a shame because I picked it based on my belief that I was getting a flick about a high school gamer who gets sucked into his role-playing fantasy. Not quite. There is a cool segment involving stop/motion animation called Stone Canyon Giant and another with decent effects by John Carl Buechler. Richard Moll is a guarantee that this will be bad eighties sci-fi even when he's pretty good. Checklist Grade: D

April 6
13. Preppies (Chuck Vincent, 1984) Silly sex quest romp by the late Chuck Vincent. Katt Shea (who would later go on to direct Stripped to Kill for Roger Corman) has a couple of hot scenes here, but spends too much of the film acting "preppy" which in this case means frumpy clothes, a posh accent, and a wig that makes her look 64. Checklist MILD T&A Grade: C
14. The Big Bet (Bert I. Gordon, 1985) Sylvia Kristel is again giving private lessons to a clueless teen male so that he can score with his class crush. Typically inept for the subgenre especially when it attempts to mimic Risky Business, but it delivers on the tropes. Checklist HOT T&A Grade: C+
15. Wet and Wild Summer! (Maurice Murphy, 1992) Wet behind the ears Ozploitation can't decide what the hell it wants to be. Whatever it is, it sucks. *Before they were famous - Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck's Christian Troy) Checklist MILD T&A Grade: D-
16. Angel Eyes (Gary Graver, 1993) My sweet sixteen flick had me in heaven. Penthouse Pet Monique Gabrielle is the kind of trash you don't want to throw out, but that will be your mistake...because she's trouble. This one is pure Skinemax and worth your time. Erik Estrada is on hand to add the cheese to this hot & spicy treat. Keeping him in mind for next year's safe list. Checklist X-TRA SPICY (XXX) T&A Grade: B

April 7
17. Die Watching (Charles Davis, 1993) Second Chris Atkins flick for my challenge. Here he's a troubled dude who makes solo porn tapes with willing strippers and peddles them to a sleazy local video clerk. Sex, lies, and videotape for snuff enthusiasts. Goofy and fun '90s trash with choice nudity and sleaze. HOT T&A Grade: B+
18. Evil Dead (Fede Alvarez, 2013) Another remake of a horror classic adds nothing new to the genre. It does have great atmosphere and recaptures a certain amount of visual flair from Raimi's original, but it's missing the fun characters and tongue-in-cheek tone. It's competent as a depressing and exhausting gorefest if that's what you're in the mood for. Grade: C-

April 8
19. Beach Party (William Asher, 1963) Rest in Peace Annette Funicello; you were the Selena Gomez of your era. This is a pretty lame beach comedy but you do get Funicello's fun bags and Eva Six's noted commodities: "Monroe's face, Mansfield's body and Zsa-Zsa's accent." Sadly, these weren't nudie-cuties and the ladies just tease through their tight sweaters and bouncing bikinis. Checklist Grade: C-
20. The Cycle Savages (Bill Brame, 1969) Bruce Dern steals the show as a despicable biker with a hate-on for females. He's a sleazy rider and no woman is safe. Only suggested nudity but there's a hot moment with a young blonde and a dripping ice cream cone that marks one of the sexiest scenes from my challenge so far. *Before they were famous - Casey Kasem plays Dern's pimp brother in a brief cameo. Checklist Grade: C+

April 9
21. Cannibal Ferox (Umberto Lenzi, 1981) Ferocious "video nasty" from Umberto Lenzi, a man who's fastly becoming one of my favorite Italian sleaze provocateurs. Not the faint of "art" or those who become squeamish at the sight of animal cruelty and real blood mixed with fake. The Amazon location shooting rivals its great influence, Cannibal Holocaust. Loved this sick masterwork. Checklist MILD T&A Grade: A
Special Short Film Marathon: Hitchhiking Cautionary Tales of the 1970s
22. A Film on Hitchhiking (Sanders-Rose-Swerdloff, 1974) Time capsule educational short on the dangers of hitchhiking. Thumbs down to hitchhikers and white boys with Afros. Grade: B-
22. Hitchhiking: The Road to Rape (Ronald Floethe, 1971) Another short on the dangers of hitchhiking features lots of cool slow-motion and demonstrates to young women why it's best to avoid strangers in pick-up trucks. Another gem for your classroom. Grade: B+
22. Under the Law: The Hitchhike (Philip Abbott, 1973) This hitchhiking "cautionary flick" features a cute blonde played by Robyn Millan (her next appearance would be in an MOW starring Bill Shatner). It takes a Rashomon approach telling both the cute girl's side of the story and the creepy older dude's recollection of what probably didn't happen. Walt Disney Pictures elected to distribute this gem to impressionable young high schoolers and pervy teachers. What would you do? Grade: B+
22. Take an Easy Ride (Kenneth F. Rowles, 1976) Leave it to the Brits to release this tawdry "white-coater" that focuses on victims of hitchhiking terror and sexploitation. The young lasses are particularly fetching and the gloved rapist lends one segment a giallo vibe mixed with roughie (two subgenres I will explore more before this challenge ends). Nearly forty-minutes almost qualifies it as a stand-alone, but I'm counting it as part of a mini-marathon for today. Worth a pick-up! HOT T&A Grade: B+
23. Flash Frame (AKA: Mind Storm; The Corporation; Subliminal Seduction; Andrew Stevens, 1996) Remember when CD-Rom was all the rage? It's funny how the technology in most '90s films that were obsessed with the internet and computers has dated so severely. But that's just part of the charm. CD-Rom is about as dead as the erotic DTV thriller and Andrew Stevens career. This made me miss them all. MILD T&A Grade: C+
24. Caveman (Carl Gottlieb, 1981) I'm not a fan of The Beatles and I'm even less of one after seeing Ringo Starr in a lead role. The saving grace here is Barbara Bach shaking her ass as a Raquel Welch inspired cavegirl. Hard to believe that the man who wrote the Jaws screenplay was responsible for this disaster. Checklist Grade: D-

April 10
25. Navajo Joe (Sergio Corbucci, 1966) Pretty sure horses were injured during the making of this one. Some action-packed scenes and a young and tough Burt Reynolds in a decent spaghetti western. Checklist Grade: B-
26. Steele Justice (Robert Boris, 1987) Solid vigilante actioner. Highlight is an appearance by Astrid Plane (Animotion). I've always found her trashy '80s look hot. She once pointed at me during a concert and I was smitten. Anyway, her music video within-the-film is interrupted by a crazy shoot-out. Martin Kove throws himself threw a window in order save himself. Just see the flick. It's pretty fun. Checklist Grade: B+
27. The Babysitter (Don Henderson, 1969) Genuinely titillating and funny exploitation film that really attacks moral standards in the name of entertainment. Well-acted, particularly by George Carey as the much older man who wants a taste of Candy. HOT T&A Grade: A

April 11
28. A Climax of Blue Power (AKA: A Taste of Blue Power; Deviant in Blue; The Impersonator; The Passion of Blue Power; Lee Frost credited as F.C. Perl, 1976) Psychologically-charged "roughie" about a disturbed man impersonating a police officer in order to act upon his darkest sexual obsessions. There's a cool scene where he reveals a Super 8 projector by his bedside that he uses to screen hardcore loops at bedtime. Gritty and authentic at its best it suffers occasionally from monotonous and dreary hardcore sex scenes. Checklist X-TRA SPICY (XXX) T&A Grade: B
29. Sexting in Suburbia (AKA: Shattered Silence; John Stimpson, 2012) I'm a closeted fan of the Lifetime movies. Such a heady mix of hyperbolic melodrama and exploitation. Since the networks stopped doing Amy Fisher tabloid of the week movies years ago, I'm glad we have this channel to keep the ball rolling. This one had pretty great acting and a young girl's life being destroyed by a viral video is back in the headlines in my neck of the woods, so I felt this was a relevant night to watch this. Checklist Grade: B+
30. Night Terrors (Tobe Hooper, 1995) One of the Tobe Hooper/Robert Englund efforts which I tend to enjoy more than most. Englund plays the Marquis de Sade in this incredibly whacked production that makes little sense but still entertains. Who really directed Poltergeist anyway? HOT T&A Grade: B-

April 12
31. Run If You Can (AKA: Run... If You Can!; V. Lively Stone, 1987) Cool concept is muddled by poor execution. Still there's lots of creepy stuff involving snuff footage. Martin Landau is in paycheck mode as a cop in pursuit of the "ladykiller". MILD T&A Grade: C-

April 13
32. Graffiti Bridge (Prince, 1990) I finally got around to this one. Prince was still hot at Warner Bros. because of the Batman movie songs and this feels like it was made on the backstages of Gotham City. It's a wet blanket "sequel" to Purple Rain. Down the drain. Checklist Grade: D+
Special Film Marathon: A Night of Emmanuelles
33. Goodbye Emmanuelle (AKA: Emmanuelle 3; François Leterrier, 1977) This is well photographed but it's like watching Eric Rohmer do an Emmanuelle film. Actually, Rohmer's would likely be sexier and more satisfying. Time for some new blood in the series Checklist HOT T&A Grade: C-
34. Black Emanuelle (AKA: Emanuelle nera; Bitto Albertini credited as Albert Thomas, 1975) Laura Gemser heats up my Emanuelle evening. This one is a bit tamer than some of her later appearances where sleaze was laid on more heavily. Gemser is not wasted and we see her in many compromising situations and ubiquitously naked. Checklist X-TRA SPICY (X) T&A Grade: B

April 14
Special Film Marathon: A Night of Emmanuelles - continued
35. Emmanuelle 6 (Bruno Zincone, 1988) Strange attempt at doing a more surrealist Emmanuelle story (Jean Rollin is a credited screenwriter). German Playmate Natalie Uher is hot but never fully convinced that she's the real Emmanuelle and neither are we. The uncut composite version included hardcore inserts but Uher's scenes remained softcore. X-TRA SPICY (XXX) T&A Grade: C
36. Emanuelle's Revenge (AKA: Emanuelle e Françoise le sorelline; Blood Vengeance; Demon Rage; Joe D'Amato, 1975) Sordid sleaze of the highest order. I knew when I saw both Bruno Mattei and Joe D'Amato's names that this would deliver. Damn cool revenge plot with Rosemarie Lindt as a sexy and vicious MILF interpretation of the title character. X-TRA SPICY (X) T&A Grade: A
37. Emmanuelle 4 (AKA: Emmanuelle IV; Francis Leroi-Iris Letans, 1984) Back to the original series. This one tries to justify the transformation of Sylvia Kristel to Mya Nygren as a plastic surgery miracle. The film is ridiculous but not without some scorching softcore making it an improvement over the tedious part III. Checklist X-TRA SPICY T&A Grade: B-
38. Sister Emanuelle (AKA: Suor Emanuelle; Giuseppe Vari, 1977) It's Emanuelle "nunsploitation" with Laura Gemser back...in the habit. The film is really cool and more arthouse and sexy than Black Swan. Checklist X-TRA SPICY (X) T&A Grade: A-
39. Emmanuelle 2000: Emmanuelle Pie (AKA: Pretty Cool; Rolfe Kanefsky, 2003) Since reading The Pleasuring of Rory Malone and seeing Zapped! as a young man, I have yearned for special powers and/or gadgets that would make women do my bidding. Kanefsky has experience in this comic subgenre. This is a strange re-cut of an earlier film with Emmanuelle added into the mix. Well, if you're going to add another exploitative element, make it Emmanuelle. X-TRA SPICY T&A Grade: B+

April 15
40. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (Nicholas Webster, 1964) Cinematic Titanic As hilariously bad as they come. My first experience with Cinematic Titanic. They were sporadically funny but this kind of film is just too easy to riff on. Checklist Grade: D
41. Born to Race (James Fargo, 1988) James Fargo has directed some great action pictures. This rusty "carsploitation" isn't among them. I need to go back to the grease pit to end this day with something more fun. Checklist Grade: D-

April 16
42. Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend (Ronnie Cramer, 1992) A microbudgeted gem of a black comedy. Lonely security guard Marcus Templeton worries that his life is devolving into something sinister and tragic while spending all his income on prostitutes. Some brilliant characterization by actor Andren Scott who was apparently shot and killed while working at a 7-11 in 1994. Joe Bob Briggs championed this film and named it "Best Drive-In feature of 1992". One of the highlights of this challenge for me thus far. HOT T&A Grade: A-
43. The Ninja Strikes Back (AKA: Xiong zhong; Bruce Le-Joseph Velasco, 1982) I wasn't really aware of these "Clones of Bruce Lee" prior to this challenge. This Bruce Le is pretty damn cool and the film has some decent action and nudity. Odd Job from Goldfinger appears with familiar tricks, a deadly gold hand, and an unlicenced Bond music theme. Checklist MILD T&A Grade: B
44. Drive-In Madness! (Tim Ferrante, 1987) Really fun 1980s documentary on the fading drive-in movie culture. Makes me happy that I still live in an area with an active drive-in theatre, but I miss the days of being able to attend them during snowstorms which is mentioned here. Lots of great vintage ads and promos and perfect for this challenge. Man, Romero looked young in this. Checklist Grade: B+

April 17
Special Tribute: Harry Reems RIP Triple Bill
45. Demented (Arthur Jeffreys, 1980) Harry Reems apparently felt it necessary to use the alias Bruce Gilchrist for this effective piece of rape/revenge trash. Sallee Elyse may have the finest breasts of my challenge so far. Wish my copy was a bit better in order to fully appreciate them. MILD T&A Grade: A-
46. The Cleanup Squad (AKA: Hot Dogs; Hot Dog Cops; Cops and Other Lovers; Under the Cover Cops; Les chiens chauds; Claude Fournier , 1980) Had no idea that Reems did some canuxploitation. Here he does a good job in a comic turn where we can see why he was originally cast as Coach Calhoun in Grease. Another Police Academy wannabe. It delivers a steady stream of bad jokes and boobs. Lots of boobs. HOT T&A Grade: C
47. Sex Wish (AKA: Love Wish; Victor Milt credited as Tim McCoy, 1976) Unpleasant roughie that casts Harry Reems as a respectable guy whose female companions are murdered by "The Night Stalker". Pretty shoddy production all around, but I was looking for something more tastelessly notorious with Reems and I found it. Checklist X-TRA SPICY (XXX) T&A Grade: D

April 18
48. Dirty O'Neil (AKA: The Love Life of a Cop; Leon Capetanos-Lewis Teague, 1974) This is kind of like the ultra-lite version of Bad Lieutenant. I guess minus the drugs, gambling etc. It's another shade of Electra Glide in Blue for Drive-In crowd. Entertaining and packs a lot of sexy seventies chicks in various states of undress. HOT T&A Grade: B+

April 19
49. Lake Placid 4 (AKA: Lake Placid: The Final Chapter; Don Michael Paul, 2012) Why do I bother with this series anymore? It can't even do bad well. It is from the director of Who's Your Caddy?, which I've actually watched for an earlier challenge. MILD T&A Grade: D+

April 20
50. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (Kevin Smith, 2001) Amazing how dated some of the jokes are and how out of touch the View Askewaverse has become, but I dig Morris Day and the Motherf*ckin' Time in small doses (even after Grafitti Bridge). Checklist Grade: B-

April 25
51. Pain & Gain (Michael Bay, 2013) Bay-balled. Full bodied Bay. Breaking Bay. Definitely a get -off-your-ass-to-see kind of entertainment. Watching the best laid plans of Dirk Diggler and The Rock come undone in a steroid-fueled riff on early Coen Bros. is delightful, irreverent, and unprecedented. I only wish DePalma's attempts at comedy had worked this well. A witty scenario is pumped up and juiced out by Bay's flair for crisp and colorful setups, spectacular editing, and that Bad Boy passive/ transqressive approach that detractors hate so much. The "summer" flick I was waiting for and it's already over. Wild Card #1 Grade: A-

April 26
52. The Lords of Salem (Rob Zombie, 2013) I don't want to watch anything shot on a RED Cam or digitally for awhile. Great sets and locations completely marred by what looks like bad camcorder footage. I liked some of the visual concepts but any potential Zombie had for this to resemble a European film from the '70s is lost. Shooting primarily at night reveals the shocking limitations of his cameras and format. Hire a recognized porn DP or someone accustomed to dealing with this, and maybe, but I couldn't get past it. As for the overall film, it's Zombie's worst. I did find some early scenes effective and Bruce Davison is good in a supporting role. It's kind of like The Mother of Tears...but worse. MILD T&A Grade: C-
53. Movie 43 (Various, 2013) Enjoyable as a late night fuck you to my sensibilities. I didn't know it had multiple directors (some oddball ones like Griffin Dunne and James Gunn). Basically it's Scary Movie or Epic Movie with bigger name talent and formatted a bit more like Kentucky Fried Movie. It's like Uwe Boll's Postal in its need to be relentlessly juvenile and offensive and in our tight-assed times I found that refreshing enough. Some of it is painfully unfunny but occasionally it reminded me of the superior Burning Palms in its effort to turn bad taste into short subjects. I also didn't expect Naomi Watts, Richard Gere and Kate Winslet to appear as comfortable here as Johnny Knoxville and Sean William Scott. I read that the wraparound story was supposed to star Greg Kinnear, Seth MacFarlane and Dennis Quaid. If that's floating around I'd be curious to see what was judiciously excised from this. Checklist Grade: B

April 28
54. Supervixens (Russ Meyer, 1975) Russ Meyer back on the big screen. Second time I've seen this one projected. Charles Napier and the bathroom murder remain the highlight of this sexy flick (and those vixens, of course). Checklist HOT T&A Grade: B+
55. Maniac (Franck Khalfoun, 2013) Another failed remake. I really didn't like the point-of-view approach. It made it feel like another found footage film or a sequence cut from V/H/S. Needless remake. MILD T&A Grade: D

April 29
56. Just One of the Girls (AKA: Anything for Love; Michael Keusch, 1993) Corey Haim was a real drag in drag. At least PCH doesn't stand for Politically Correct High. Decent group girl's shower scene is the only saving grace here. MILD T&A Grade: D-

April 30
57. Ice Cream Man (Paul Norman, 1995) Slyly entertaining but wholly ridiculous horror flick with Clint Howard. It's soft serve in terms of scares, but the camp factor is the cherry on top. Checklist Grade: C+

1. Killjoy Goes to Hell* (2012) ★★★
The "Old Hag" summons Killjoy to put him on trial for his incompetence as a villain. What Killjoy should be on trial for is that first movie. Really. Anyway, he's sent to Hell to face Jezabeth, the hot D.A. (Devil's Advocate, that is). Killjoy's attorney Skid Mark (Killjoy's biggest fan) sacrifices some flesh in order to conjure old pals and demon witnesses Punchy the clown (who talks like a scatting Snoop Dogg), Freakshow the mime (who can't speak at all), and Batty Boop, his girl (who just proves what a nice guy Killjoy really is). The gang hatch a scheme to bring back Sandie, the virgin from the 3rd movie who survived, and witnessed the horror that Killjoy brought into her life. She has a case of the giggles, or at least that silly disorder that they advertise on TV (It's not funny, ok?!). Killjoy Goes to Hell was effective in creating its own unique world, and gave me a few good laughs.

2. Bordello of Blood (1996) ★★★
The midget from Sabrina, The Teenage Witch is a treasure hunter, tracking down a secret tomb that houses the mother of all vampires. Kind of like a tiny Indiana Jones, spiders and all. He reconnects her quartered heart, and brings her back to life in order to start a brothel full of vampires. Enter Dennis Miller, playing a smarmy, wise-cracking smartass. Wait, isn't that what he normally is? I guess maybe a little less effective one here, with someone else writing his lines. Dennis Miller is Rafe, a detective (not on the level, as it turns out), tracking down Caleb (Corey Feldman), who was last seen at Lilith's (Angie Everhart, cast strictly on looks) brothel. Bad acting all around. But... ultimately a satisfying amount of tits and gore, so I like it!

April 2
3. Hellraiser: Deader* (2005) ★★
A Stan Winston production?! Should I expect some cool, elaborate creatures? Nope. Just Pinhead and a couple Cenobites. And, just barely. Kari Wuhrer, probably best known for her work on MTV's Remote Control (although I've never seen Sliders -- I remember her most from her stellar appearance on Conan in the '90s) does an admirable job in an awful movie as Amy, a journalist for an underground London newspaper. She gets sent to Romania on a story to track down a cult leader who can apparently bring the dead back to life by making out with them. This story was originally written as a stand-alone movie, and was altered to become part of the Hellraiser universe. It shows. Er, let's just say it's a colossal bore. Besides one minor flourish when Amy opens the box, Pinhead doesn't bring the pain until the 1:18 mark (The movie is 1:28). Too little, too late, jagoffs. I would consider this to be amongst the worst Hellraiser movies, along with Hellworld and Revelations. So, the last 3 installments don't work. Time to pack it in.


April 3
4. The Road Killers* (1994) ★★
Young Richie is nearly killed 5 minutes in by Redneck Bon Jovi's (Cliff's) El Dorado. Later, at the diner ahead, Ashley flirts with Cliff, not knowing what a psycho he really is. Richie's father Glen confronts Cliff, who throws a chicken in his car window. Then, quite poetically (NOT), they play chicken. Glen is killed in the ensuing car wreck. Cliff's gang of flunkies includes a young David Arquette, playing the borderline-retarded Bobby. Cliff provides a few sarcastic tender moments. Hoo boy. This one runs out of gas fairly early on.

5. Leprechaun (1993) ★★★★
Danny O'Grady stole the Leprechaun's gold. He's able to trap him inside a box in his basement with a 4-leaf clover. Ten years later, J.D. and his daughter Tory (Jennifer Aniston) arrive for a summer vacation. North Dakota is not her speed. Spoiled Tory gives her father some back sass. She has the hots for the painter at the house, Nathan. Yes, Nathan, of the "3 Guys That Paint," Nathan. That would include dim Ozzie, and little (not Leprechaun little) friend Alex. Ozzie fucks up and lets the Leprechaun loose. Ozzie spots a rainbow, and follows it for a bag of gold. He then swallows a coin, that knucklehead. The Leprechaun needs that coin. Only, he has this OCD problem with shining shoes. Despite this, he makes a sucker out of everyone. I was a little distracted with Jennifer Aniston's shapely be-hind. One could bounce a quarter off that sweet caboose. Anyway, the movie is silly and fun. Whoo-hoo!

April 4
6. Leprechaun 2* (1994) ★★★
Apparently the Leprechaun broke the curse in the well from the first movie. He's miraculously back in Ireland here, on his 1000th birthday, on which he can claim his bride. Hold on, didn't he say he was 600 in the first movie? It's olden times here (?!) and he has found his bride. Only it turns out that she is his slave's sister. All she has to do is sneeze 3 times without someone saying "God bless you.". WTF? Said slave saves her, and the Leprechaun has to wait another 1000 years.
Cut to the present day, which really throws the universe out of whack. Cody runs a ghoulish Hollywood tour, visiting death sites of the rich and famous. Ian works at the go kart track and is really into Cody's girl, Bridget. Turns out Bridget is a descendant of the original bride-to-be. Ian gives Bridget a ride home, only the Leprechaun is one step ahead of him. Ian goes to fondle Bridget's obvious stunt boobs, and face plants into a lawn mower. Pretty funny stuff. Cody has to evade the police, who think he's killed Ian, and in the meantime rescue Bridget from the Leprechaun. Uh, I miss the shoe-shining disorder.

The Leprechaun explodes at the end of this one. Should I even ask how he's going to come back from that? Is it supposed to be a different Leprechaun for each movie, played by the same actor?

7. Leprechaun 3* (1995) ★★★
The Leprechaun is back again from certain death to wreak havok on Las Vegas. A frantic, injured man brings a frozen Leprechaun into a pawn shop and insists that the shopkeeper not touch the medallion hanging around its neck. What's the very first thing he does? Tammy, all waist and hips, brings Scott into the casino where she works as a magician's assistant, for him to just look around. Yeah, right. Scott can't resist gambling - I call him Gamblor! - and cashes the $23,000 check his parents gave him for college. He runs across the street to the pawn shop to sell his watch for more gambling money, only to find a dead shopkeeper, along with a gold shilling belonging to the Leprechaun. Ah, the old one-short. The OCD Leprechaun has exactly 100 shillings to keep track of. New rules: The owner of a shilling gets a wish. Also, if all the coins are destroyed, so is the Leprechaun. The coin finds its way to Fazio, the gay disco magician, who has a Dennis DeYoung vibe. That's bad. Scott gets bit by the Leprechaun, and is infected like a zombie. He's suddenly really into potatoes and rhyming. This is easily the silliest of the first three Leprechaun movies, and that's saying a lot.

April 7
8. Evil Dead* (2013) ★★★
"Remake of classic B-movie(s)"
This might be the most violent R-rated movie I've seen. I expect this from unrated shit, but not such a graphic R. Either the MPAA has loosened up a bit (fat chance), or Sam Raimi is in a position where he can pull some strings. I've come to the conclusion that I'm not a big fan of modern horror remakes, even ones with the original producers in place. They always, without exception, lack the spirit of the original. I expected this to be cool, fun, and clever. None of the above, despite all the hype. It was grim and grimy, which seems to be the template for horror remakes today. I did like how the movie wouldn't end, it just kept getting pushed further and further, and that most everything in the book came to fruition, including raining blood and rising from the grave. Actually, all of the homages to the original were good, too. I think that this movie warranted a remake, just not this one.

9. Leprechaun 4: In Space* (1997) ★★★
I was excited at just the prospect of the Leprechaun in space. They had me sold with the title. But I think this one actually gave me brain damage. Try to imagine an even campier Leprechaun. Sgt. Hooker (apparently they couldn't get Henry Rollins to put on a metal wig) is leading a troop on a search and destroy mission against a meddlesome alien. Who could that be? Who the fuck do you think it is? Actually, I had no idea it would be the Leprechaun. Seems like kind of a random plot point. They go into some space caves on Planet Ithacan to destroy the "alien." The mission seems to be a success when the Leprechaun hops on a grenade to protect his beloved (and greedy) princess. One of the soldiers, let's call him Bill Paxton, takes a leak on one of the remaining bits, and develops some sort of space gonorrhea. Cut to the ship mixer, where he's getting it on with Delores, the crew tramp. Here's something I don't see often in movies: Boner-related death. "Dr. Mittenhand" survived someone's idea of a joke, and suffers a most disturbing fate. This character has to be seen to be believed. The Leprechaun manages to wreak havoc on the ship, and survive long enough for two more sequels.

April 9
10. Last of the Living* (2009) ★★
Three flatmates in New Zealand are coping with the zombie apocalypse. Morgan, Ash, and Johnny decide to go to the store. Yep, that's about as exciting as it gets. This movie aspires to be a low rent Shaun of the Dead. Much of the movie plays out like a music video, with interstitial dialogue. It does have its own heavily promoted theme song. I suppose that's a good thing. Well, except the song sucks. Literally all of the enjoyment I got out of Last of the Living is the scene where Morgan farts. That's pretty sad.

11. Demon Knight (1995) ★★★★
A mysterious stranger (Billy Zane) is after another mysterious stranger (William Sadler). A relic in the form of a key (as seen in Bordello of Blood?!) is sought after by The Collector (Zane) and his conjured demons to complete the set of seven. Brayker (Sadler) and cast are holed up in a seedy hotel. Demon-fueld mayhem ensues. Tales From the Crypt delivers again! Tits and gore abound. Great ensemble cast.

April 10
12. Leprechaun in the Hood* (2000) ★★★
Ice T is Mack Daddy, who shows up in an old subway station with a giant afro and full pimp getup, to steal the Leprechaun's magic flute. His buddy Slug unwittingly removes the medallion from the Leprechaun's neck and sets him free. Said buddy gets an afro pick in the neck for his troubles. Mack Daddy pulls a knife and bat from his 'fro to take on the Leprechaun. It's nice to see that Ice T has a good sense of humor. What other gangsta rapper would sign up for "Leprechaun in the Hood?" Life is rough for rappers Postmaster P (the grand prince of mail?), Stray Bullet, and Butch, trying to make it in the business by sending a positive message. That all turns sour when they blow (literally, with Butch's science experiment) an audition for a rap contest in Las Vegas. Mack Daddy, now a hip hop mogul thanks to the flute, keeps the frozen Leprechaun in a glass case in the middle of his office. PP, SB, and B give him a cassette. He tells them they need to be more gangsta to get on his label. The gang decide they are going to break into his office and steal his loot. So much for the positive message. The Leprechaun kind of takes a backseat to these three idiots rapping. Which is too bad.

April 11
13. Leprechaun: Back 2 Tha Hood* (2003) ★★
Ah, Leprechaun. Where would we be without ye? Well, we'd be better off without this sequel of a sequel. Apparently the "hood" premise was successful enough to warrant another one. The animated intro is promising, although it looks like it didn't make it past the animatics stage. I could probably find out what happened if I could be bothered to listen to an audio commentary (this movie, unbelievably, has two). It presents an interesting backstory to the Leprechaun myth that doesn't exist in any of the other films. Whatever character development gained here is squandered to nothingness with the remaining cast. Jamie is crazy nutzo over Lisa. I couldn't figure out why Lisa, Emily, and Rory hang around with this genius. And I never thought I'd miss those three no-talent ass-clowns from the last movie. The Leprechaun did have the decency to disrupt the mushy love story between Rory and Emily. But that was only temporary. Anyway, the Leprechaun wants his freaking gold!

April 13
14. Bloodlock* (2008) ★
Barry and Christine move into a new house with Christine's sister, Lisa, until she gets back on her feet. Want more character development? Well, there isn't really any. Except that Barry is a flaming a-hole. He's cheating on his wife with flirtatious Lisa, and has no problem wasting his neighbors, who walk into his house to try and open the locked door in their basement. Did I mention The Door? The one with the titanium "Bloodlock?!" The previous tenant locked a vampire inside and sealed it so that no one could ever let it loose. Neighbors Foster and Edwina are after immortality that the vampire can apparently provide. I'm not sure he wouldn't just rip their heads off, like he does Barry's. What makes them think they can trust this creature? Later in the movie, they attempt to present Christine as a kick-ass vampire hunter. This does not work at all. She chugs garlic and holy water, which, laughably, comes in handy late in the flick. Foster survived and joins the vampire hunting squad with Christine and Luke the locksmith. Oh yeah, Foster survived?! His arm is in a sling. They repeatedly refer to Foster's damaged arm as a "busted wing." He got shot in the gut, I'm not exactly sure what happened to his "wing." They all cruise around in her 1992 Chrysler minivan. Not exactly the Mystery Machine. The ending was a real groaner. Maybe even an eye-roller.

April 14
15. Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep* (2006) ★★
Thrilling underwater action! I'm being sarcastic. Ray lost his parents to Tentacles of the Deep (or TotD™) when he was a child. Years later, Ray, now an underwater photographer, joins up with Nicole, a treasure hunter. Jenny helps provide bikini/boob action with Nicole. Ok, something in this film worth watching. I suppose Ray wants to avenge his parent's death, but it's not as if he takes any real precautions to take down the giant squid. Nicole is after a large, almost mythical opal which the squid protects. Also after it is Maxwell and his thugs, dressed in black, driving a black car, backed by ominous music. So they must be evil. The movie has a cream puff mash note of an ending, followed by the prospect of a sequel. God, no.

16. Total Recall 2070: Machine Dreams* (1999) ★★
I'm not so much into Sci Fi...

http://i50.tinypic.com/2dt4rkl.jpg

April 15
17. Head of the Family* (1996) ★★★★
Lance spots some strange goings on at the Stackpoole house. They are tricking travellers into driving to their home, then conducting experiments on them. Myron, the "head of the family," quite literally, needs an able human body to support his brain. He and his family are quadruplets, only instead of being identical, they all have their own supernatural abilities. Myron is the brains, Otis is the strenth, Wheeler is the eyes, ears, and nose, and Ernestina is the, uh, boobs. Myron's siblings are all linked telepathically to him. Lance hatches a blackmail scheme against the Stackpooles in exchange for making Howard disappear. Howard is a colossal dick. He's a gangster, drug dealer, and a murderer, and Lance wants his girl Loretta, who is quite naked throughout the film. No complaints here. He knows the Stackpooles have "cabbage" to spare, so he also wants $2000 a week in exchange for his silence. Myron and his family use their powers to get the juicy tidbits on Lance. Ernestina uses her body to seduce him. It is quite disturbing knowing that Myron is really in charge. And Lance knows this. I've gotta say that The Head (J.W. Perra) is quite delicious and sinister as the villain.

April 17
18. Night of the Living Dead (1990) ★★★★★
Barbara (Patricia Tallman) and Johnnie (Bill Moseley) travel to the middle of nowhere to pay respects to her mother. Johnnie is attacked and killed by a zombie. Barbara flees to a remote farmhouse nearby, where she meets up with Ben (a pre-Candyman Tony Todd). Hollywood should definitely take note of this remake, and how to effectively make one. NotLD (1990) surprisingly doesn't go for a lot of gore. It's discussed in the featurette that the MPAA forced them to remove a lot of more graphic scenes. Frankly, I think they did director Tom Savini and screenwriter George A. Romero a favor, which I normally would never say. The focus is more on character development than splatter effects. And it works. Savini proves himself adept at creating genuine tension. I was a little disappointed to learn that this remake was primarily made so that people involved with the original could make some money off of the name. There were some legal issues with the original 1968 NotLD. But it works, and that's all that matters. I think this ranks among Romero's best.

April 18
19. The Greenskeeper* (2002) ★★
Music score by Kip Winger?! So that's what he was up to in 2002. Not that I was wondering. Allen is the assistant greenskeeper -- The greenskeeper, Otis, is barely in the movie. Allen wants to be a screenwriter, and it's his 25th birthday. Whoop-dee-shit. Otis gives Allen a ladies bike for his birthday. Not sure what he's trying to say. Allen's at odds with Chet, Chazz, and Champ, the local dickheads. Elena says Allen is "weeped" by his girlfriend. Translation: Whipped. Allen is into the girl with the dopey accent. This movie is as much a sausage-fest as it is boobs & bikinis. And I could care less about the killer and his beekeeper outfit. Incredibly bad, Scooby Doo-esque ending.

April 20
20. Carrie* ★★★★

April 23
21. Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh* (1995) ★★★

http://i33.tinypic.com/99zyon.jpg

22. Candyman 3: Day of the Dead* (1999) ★★
From Al Septien and Turi Meyer, the folks who brought you such blockbusters as Leprechaun 2 and Chairman of the Board (yes, the one with Carrot Top). After a thoroughly pointless intro, Candyman 3 gives a crash course in the history of Daniel Robitaille (otherwise known as Candyman). We're introduced to Caroline (Donna D'Errico, from Baywatch), Daniel's great great granddaughter, trying her best to not look like a deer caught in the headlights (she is not successful). A stranger gives her some candy. Quite literally sweets to the sweet. Maybe they thought that was clever? Caroline's friend Miguel is putting on a showing of Candyman's artwork. There's a slightly altered re-telling of the origin, perhaps from Miguel's understanding. Or maybe they were just lazy. Caroline then gets peer pressured into saying his name five times into the mirror in front of the art gallery crowd. Did I mention she seems to forget her bra on every occasion? This is perhaps why Candyman wants to get it on with a relative. Look at me, trying to make sense of this. Later, the paintings are stolen and Miguel is killed. The bumbling detectives ("bad cop/bad cop") are on Caroline's case, thinking she's the Candyman. Where have I heard this before? Trying to interfere is the son of the 4th Ghostbuster, Ernie Hudson, Jr. Because they couldn't get the 4th Ghostbuster. Incredibly, Candyman suffers the same fate as the Leprechaun in Leprechaun 2. Hel-lo?! Classic Septien/Meyer!

April 24
23. From Beyond (1986) ★★★★

April 25
24. Re-Animator (1985) ★★★★★
Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale) is doing brain research at the Miskatonic Medical School in Massachusetts. Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is back from a stint in Zurich with the infamous Dr. Hans Gruber (Al Berry), stating that there was nothing more he could learn there (Gruber dies, West revives him to eye-exploding effect). West feels Hill has stolen his ideas from Gruber. Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) is a student dating the Dean's daughter, Megan (Barbara Crampton). West answers Cain's ad for a roommate. He keeps to himself behind a closed door, and conducts experiments in the basement. West is researching "death," with his glowing green solution. He is quite serious, straight-laced and determined, to the point of psychotic. With his reagent, re-animation is possible. He tries it out on Dan's (mysteriously) deceased cat. The cat freaks. It seems the bigger the animal, the more violent the reaction. You can imagine what it does to humans. The dark humor in Re-Animator is quite delightful. And it's not to the point where it detracts from the horror. This movie is outrageous, completely demented, and gloriously gory! Richard Band deserves a special shout out for his awesome orchestral score! Aww yeah!

April 28
25. Amityville II: The Possession* (1982) ★★
This prequel follows the thoroughly dysfunctional Montelli family at their new home in Amityville, New York. The flaming a-hole dad is played by Burt Young, a familiar face when you need a tough guy. He's probably most famous for his role in the Rocky movies, but I remember him best as Rodney Dangerfield's limo driving thug in Back to School. Siblings Sonny (Jack Magner) and Patricia (Diane Franklin) have a very strange flirty and incestuous relationship, even prior to Sonny's possession. Sonny listens to free-form jazz/post-punk on his walkman, amongst his satanic orders. It is quite evident early on that the place is haunted. The haunting itself is so over the top, it borders on parody. No subtlety here. The demon is quite the artist, too, painting an elaborate message for the little kids. Patricia reaches out to the family priest, who would rather go on a hiking trip than answer his phone in a time of need. This movie was on Rue Morgue's list of "200 Alternative Horror Films You Need to See," and I'm hard pressed to see why. It was supposedly influential to the J-Horror craze, which was, in a word, lame.

*first time viewing

My target is 50-60 movies, I'm going to hopefully watch at least 2 films a day.
I am also going to try and feature at least one film a day that will celebrate a birthday, commemorate a death or even a event in history (I'll put them in red like this)
New target - reach 100 first time views before the end of the challenge.

March 31

1 - Showdown In Little Tokyo (1991) - watched to commemorate the death of Brandon Lee 20 years ago today. The film is a lot of fun and Lee and Dolph Lundgren have good buddy movie chemistry (DVD).
2 - If Footmen Tire You Out What Will Horses Do? (1971)* - Wow, is all I can say about this. Entertaining as Hell, so much stand out stuff that I don't want to spoil in the religious exploitation about what would happen if Commies taking over America and would happen to the Christians. Only comes in about an hour as well. It's Easter Sunday as well (Youtube)
3- The Streetfighter (1974) - Tsurugi (Sonny Chiba) is not an anti-hero, he's a bit of a dick, I'm a big Sonny Chiba fan and love the fighting, the action even the colour of the blood, one of my favourites of his. Watched in original language (DVD).

April 01

4 - Return Of The Street Fighter (1974)* - While it's not as good as the first movie it's still enjoyable. I think it's middle section is not as exciting as it could have been but picks right up for the end. Watched in original language (DVD).
5 - Street Fighter's Last Revenge (1974)* - This is my least favourite of the three, though I still enjoyed it. The film must have took some inspiration from spy movies somewhere. One of the villainous characters Mr. Black dresses like he is one of the Three Amigos and he also doesn't live up to the hype of his introduction.Watched in original language (DVD).
6 - Swamp Women (1956)* - One of Roger Corman's earliest directorial efforts, even though it was in the Mill Creek Horror box-set and IMDB list it as horror but maybe I was missing something but it wasn't a horror, it took a while to get going but I ended up enjoying it. Jonathan Haze, whose birthday it is today as a small but fun role towards the beginning (DVD).
7 - Our Man In Jamaica (1965)* - while there wasn't much action that made me go wow I did enjoy spending time with these characters, was good enough to want me to check out more Eurospy movies (Youtube).
8 - One Eyed Monster (2008)* - great fun about Ron Jeremy's member coming to life thanks to an alien life form (this isn't a porn film), he and Veronica Hart play themselves and delivers likable performances. Amber Benson from Buffy is also in it as is Charles Napier who was a fun role and speech recounting his Vietnam experience. Was a direct to DVD feature (DVD).

April 02

9 - Chrome and Hot Leather (1971)* - not bad biker movie but I've seen a lot better, notable for one of only two movies Marvin Gaye acted in (the other a TV movie) - decent performance from him. It would have been Marvin Gaye's birthday (DVD).
10 - Maniac (1934)* - Was glad it was only as long as it was a longer film I imagine would have started to bore me. I liked the awkward performances in this movie. A different Phyllis Diller appears in this movie to the more famous one (DVD).
11 - Spooks Run Wild (1941)* - Was okay was best when Bela Lugosi and his small assistant was on screen, some of the East Side Kids (first movie I've ever seen of theirs) comedy was funny over times not so much, so the twist coming very early on (DVD).
12 - Women In Cellblock 9 (1977)* - I decided to watch this since Jess Franco passed away today and also was planning on watching a prison film (two birds, one stone) and I didn't read up too much about it before watching it, but have since found it's still banned outright in my country (the U.K.). A prison film where the women are either naked or tortured (plenty of times both at the same time), not titillating. Downbeat ending as well (online).
13 - The Inspector Wears Skirts (Top Squad) (1988) - This is basically the Hong Kong version of Police Academy but with ladies, even sort of following that pattern for the bulk of the movie with training then sudden bad guys in the last reel. I think it's more nostalgic for me this more then anything. Watched this part of a double bill at my brothers of Cynthia Rothrock (who is pretty much an extended cameo). Watched in original language (DVD).
14 - Above The Law (Righting Wrongs) (1986) - The second of the Cynthia Rothrock double bill, I watched this a lot as a kid in the dubbed form. To me this is her best film with brilliant action and a decent storyline and a great lead from Yuen Biao, two things that stand out in Rothrock's opening mahjong scene - firstly Rothrock's cream panties and secondly Biao doubling for her in a couple of instants really funny image when paused. Watched in original language (DVD)

April 03

15 - A Blade In The Dark (1983) * - I liked it but I have enjoyed most Italian horror stuff I've seen lately so maybe I'm the mood for it. Some of the set pieces where nice but my only criticism is some editing for pacing could have been done here and there. Today is the birthday of the film's director Lamberto Bava (online).
16 - The Amazing Transparent Man (1960)* - quality wise The Invisible Man it isn't. Pretty slow moving for the most part but picked up towards the climax (DVD).
17 - Heart Of America (2002)* - Uwe Boll doing a film about a fictional school shooting (similar to Columbine) sounds like it could have been really offensive but despite some wobbly acting and characterizations it's actually an alright film. This is probably the best film I've seen of Boll's (not that it's a high benchmark) (DVD).
18 - Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter (1966)* - For parts of this movie it just felt like a western, it was okay and could have been cut down 20 minutes with no problem. On this day in 1882, Jesse James was killed by Robert Ford (online).
19 - Robot Jox (1990)* - I always remember loving the trailer for this on a couple of videos I used to rent but never got the chance to actually see it until now. I enjoyed it and like the effects in the movie. Anne-Marie Johnson was cute in this (not so much her hairstyle though) and she has a nice behind (Netflix).
20 - Gracie's Choice (2004)* - Lifetime movie. Is stereotypical of what I imagine happens in many true life made for TV stories - bad stuff happens to people, then more bad stuff, then it get worse and then a happy ending (or they die) - there is a sad scene with a dog 5 minutes in. I picked this basically because it starred Kristen Bell, no other reason. (online)

April 04

21 - S. Darko (2009)* - I had trouble sleeping and despite being very uninteresting and slow didn't help get me to sleep - I checked the time to see how long it had been on thinking it had been on 40 minutes or so to discover it was only at the 20 minute mark. Daveigh Chase has grown up pretty though. First true dud of the challenge for me (Netflix).
22 - Mystery Science Theater 3000 - The Violent Years (1994, original film 1956)* - I watched The Violent Years for the first time only a couple of weeks ago, so thought it would be fun to watch MST3K tackle it. I have to admit I have not seen too much MST3K but I laughed more then once (online).
23 - The Intruder (1962)* - Was blown away by this. Really didn't believe Roger Corman as a director and William Shatner had it in them to make a film like this. I was hooked from start to finish, arguably the best film I've watched of the challenge yet. Watched today since on this day in 1968 Martin Luther King was assassinated and felt this had an equal rights connection. (online)
24 - King Dick (1973) - If I make it to 100 films I'm pretty much guaranteed there won't be another film where a male character slips naked on a banana skin and as accidental anal sex with another naked male character. This was something I used to watch a lot when I was younger because any nudity whether it's cartoon or not was nudity. I enjoyed catching up with it for the first time in 20+ years (DVD).
25 - 2012: Doomsday (2008)* - With this movie from The Asylum I expected (and wanted) people panicking to bad special effects because it's the end of the world instead we get a film about fate with Christian overtones. It's pretty boring. (DVD)
26 - The Return Of Captain Invincible (1983)* - I loved this film. Great lead performances from Alan Arkin and Christopher Lee among others, decent songs particularly Lee performing Name Your Poison. One of two first time views of today that I loved (DVD).
27 - Yakuza Deka (1970)* - More Sonny Chiba, I enjoyed this but would have liked more action then it did have, ending was exciting though. Watched in original language (DVD).

April 05

28 - Yakuza Deka - The Assassin (1970)* - This movie is actually an improvement on the first movie, it's a lot more action packed and fun, I would recommend seeing this even without seeing the first. Japanese wrestler Giant Baba has a small role, it's surprising this is the first movie where a wrestler has popped up in the challenge. Watched in original language (DVD).
29 - The Raven (1963)* - 2 days and 2 pretty awesome movies directed by Roger Corman, love the three leads in this (Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre), more funnier then I thought it would be. Happy birthday Roger Corman! (DVD)
30 - Piranha (1995)* - A made for TV remake starring William Katt and Baywatch's Alexandra Paul, it's not really awful but doesn't do enough to stand. Before they were famous role for Mila Kunis as Katt's daughter (DVD).
31 - Super (2010) - Really enjoy this movie, think this movie belongs to Ellen Page, I think she's brilliant in it but I liked the rest of the cast too, a couple of notes related to the challenge - William Katt has a small role so it was my second film in a row with him in, and the supporting cast features two people on the director's safe list (Lloyd Kaufman and Rob Zombie who voices God) (Blu Ray).
32 - Another Day, Another Man (1966)* - I liked it for what it was which by that I mean now a period piece of the time it's from. I'm glad it wasn't longer then the 70 minutes it was or I would have got bored (DVD).
33 - The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto (2009)* - I enjoyed this cartoon, there was plenty of funny bits, I particularly liked Rosario Dawson's character Velvet Von Black, it had a good pace and the time watching it just flew by. (DVD)
34 - Witchfinder General (1968)* - As a Brit I've neglected British cinema so far, this movie changed that and it was an awesome choice. Decided from watching The Raven earlier that I wanted to watch another Vincent Price movie, can't believe I didn't see it sooner. (DVD).

April 06

35 - Postal (2007) Commentary Track - The main things I learn't from this Uwe Boll commentary where that he hates Bin Laden, George W. Bush, tree huggers, his critics, his fans, Germany, America and himself among other things. He believes Sarah Silverman and David Cross where pussies for passing on the movie but praises his cast at least and he doesn't mind answering his phone multiply times (DVD).
36 - Psycho Beach Party (2000)* - It felt like a 60s beach movie (with a slasher element) unfortunately it also didn't feel like a very good one, I'd recommend giving it a miss. Before They Were Famous - Amy Adams (online).
37 - The Lost World (1925)* - I have to say my favourite thing about this movie was it's special effects but I'm a sucker for stop motion effects. On this date in 1925 this became the first ever film to be shown on an aeroplane as the in flight movie (online).
38 - Coffy (1973) - Love this film, 1970s Pam Grier is gorgeous and she has a couple of scenes of T&A. I love the story and action as well and a great supporting cast including Sid Haig (DVD).
39 - Baadasssss Cinema (2002)* - While I liked this documentary about Blaxploitation cinema it had two negatives it should have been longer and failed to have interviews with many stars of the era, but there is some good stuff in there (DVD).
40 - The Adventures Of Pluto Nash (2002)* - This film cost $100 million to make and made about $7 million so it easily qualifies as a box office bomb. It's a supposed comedy where I smiled at a couple of jokes and rolled my eyes at plenty, what's surprising is that it's bad but it's not even Eddie Murphy's worst (Norbit is worse) and it shocks me Ron Underwood, the same guy who did Tremors directed this. Until the opening credits I didn't know Pam Grier was in this so I ended up having an accidental triple bill of hers. (DVD)

April 07

41 - Drunken Master (1978) - I love this film to bits, to me it was the start of Jackie Chan's golden period for me that lasted into the early 90s. amazing kung fu and very funny to boot. Watched in original language. Happy birthday Jackie Chan! (DVD)
42 - Drunken Master 2 (1994)* - Very fun movie, that is not a direct follow on but rather set in a different time period. Good kung fu, but the weirdest thing is that the late beautiful Anita Mui plays Jackie Chan's mother (she is entertaining just way too young for the role). Again happy birthday Jackie! (DVD)
43 - Exorcist II - The Heretic (1977)* - Chose this as "Bad Sequel To Well Regarded Film" and boy was I bored by it. Almost looked like it would pick up with the girl getting cured of her autism but then it went back to sucking straight after (DVD)
44 - Thriller - A Cruel Picture (1974)* - It was okay, I think this film could have easily been cut down by quite a lot because some scenes just dragged especially when the main character is using karate on the police officers in slow motion, it felt like it went on forever (online)
45 - Sister Street Fighter (1974)* - This is the sixth Sonny Chiba film I've watched so far for this challenge and it's his smallest role in any of them so far and the first one that I am watching dubbed. I enjoyed this the action was good enough and it had some entertaining characters (DVD).
46 - Maniac Cop (1988)* - Always been meaning to see this for years, I quite enjoyed it with a decent cast and every time I see Tom Atkins in a movie I'm always reminded of how much I like him (DVD).
47 - Gridlock'd (1997)* - Picked it because it qualified as a "Hood" film. I thought this movie was excellent. I thought Tupac and Tim Roth had fantastic chemistry. (DVD)

April 08

48 - Tarantula (1955)* - I was really impressed by the special effects in this movie and enjoyed the film much. Clint Eastwood as an uncredited before they where famous role as a jet pilot which brings me to on this day in 1986, Clint Eastwood was voted in as mayor of Carmel, California (DVD).
49 - Francis In The Navy (1955)* - another Eastwood film, this was his first role as a featured player (he's about fifth or sixth billed overall). This in an entry in the Francis the Talking mule series and I quite enjoyed it. Again Eastwood Mayor this day (DVD).
50 - If You Meet Sartana, Pray For Death (1968)* - User coyoteblue suggested this when I wanted somebody to pick my 50th and I'm really glad he did because I really enjoyed it, this was exactly what I wanted from a spaghetti western. (online)
51 - The House By The Cemetery (1981)* - I liked this, it had a good atmosphere and that, but... the little kid Bob - his bloody dubbed voice was awful, some of the worst dubbing I've ever heard in an Italian movie (DVD).
52 - Back To The Beach (1987)* - I enjoyed this movie, it was fun and had a nice flow, the biggest negative was the performance of the actor who played the son called Bobby (what's with me and problems with kids of that name today?). Watched because Annette Funicello sadly passed away today (Netflix).
53 - The Last Sentinel (2007)* - This sci-fi action movie starring Don 'The Dragon and Katee Sackhoff is neither original or memorable, I felt like I'd lost interest in the first 20 minutes but stuck it out till the bitter end. Katee Sackhoff celebrates her birthday today (DVD).

April 09

54 - Robo Vampire (1988)* - editing 2 (or more) films together it's certainly the work of Godfrey Ho, I really enjoyed this mess of a movie but then again I'm a big Ho fan. RoboCop it's not (DVD).
55 - Mondo Topless (1966)* - I liked this, I think mostly because it had no pretensions about itself, it was about ladies dancing with their big boobs out with the girls voicing over and another awesome male narrator and very 60s music. (DVD)
56 - Birth Of The Beatles (1979)* - TV movie telling the Beatles early years is neither particularly good or bad and mostly goes on too long, it's remarkable how much they captured the sound of the Beatles though. The band in 1965 released Ticket to The Ride in the UK (Youtube).
57 - Hobo With A Shotgun (2011)* - enjoyed the hell out of this, not a subtle or realistic film in the slightest but really good fun (Netflix).
58 - Galaxy Of Terror (1981)* - obvious Alien rip-off from Corman with a decent cast and some very memorable bits (most notably the worm sex scene). Before they were famous in a non acting way for James Cameron who was production designer and 2nd unit director (DVD).

April 10

59 - Sex Madness (1938)* - Not enough sex, or madness for that matter for me, enjoyable to laugh at though. Watched today because on this date in 1938 in New York it was made mandatory to get a syphilis test in order to get a marriage licence (Youtube).
60 - Galaxina (1980)* - I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this, sure some of the jokes where lame but it had a fun energy (DVD).
61 - Ticks (1993)* - The best thing about this film is Alfonso Riberio playing a tough gangsta (who also loves his dog), I enjoyed the film enough even if I wasn't blown away by it (DVD).
62 - Hell Ride (2008)* - I wanted so much to like this movie but it just didn't click for me, I was glad it was short as it it (DVD).
63 - Robot Monster (1953)* - Wasn't quite as bad as I was expecting, even if the main body was a guy in a gorilla suit, not great by any stretch but I kind of liked it (Youtube)
64 - Black Dynamite (2009)* - Really enjoyed this, lots of funny bits in it, hope the sequel that has been talked about happens (DVD).

April 11

65 - The Great Texas Dynamite Chase (1976)* - Liked this a lot, can't go wrong with two beautiful leads robbing banks with dynamite, I did think the law enforcement was a bit trigger happy though (Youtube)
66 - Slapstick Of Another Kind (1982)* - Scoring IMDB rating of 2, this film wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for some of Jerry Lewis' mugging. Kurt Vonnegut, who wrote the book this movie is based on passed away on this day in 2007 (DVD).
67 - Bruce's Ways Of Kung Fu (1979)* - After putting the DVD in, I realized I was watching the wrong Bruceploitation DVD from the box-set (I mean't to put in Bruce's Deadly Kung Fu) but stuck with it because it was Godfrey Ho and Dragon Lee (credited as Bruce Lai), I liked it but I like most stuff Ho. The second Ho period piece I've seen where a man dresses as a woman (DVD).
68 - Crime Boss (1972)* - Just really didn't find this very interesting at all, pretty forgettable. Wish there was more I could write (DVD).
69 - Flesh Gordon (1974)* - Wow it was a happy coincidence that something from the sexploitation genre would end up the 69th movie I watched. Great fun with pretty good sets and effects (online).

April 12

70 - Battle Beyond The Sun (1959/1962)* - Roger Corman took a Russian space movie and did new scenes and dialogue, not bad for what it is, but not amazing. Before they were famous behind the scenes for Francis Ford Coppola who's credited as co-producer. On this day in 1961 USSR won the space race with Yuri Gagarin being the first man in space (Youtube).
71 - Emmanuelle (1974)* - I really dug this, Sylvia Kristel hot as hell here. I'm glad I got hold of a copy today of this for the challenge (DVD).
72 - Gestapo's Last Orgy (1977)* - It was okay I suppose, some bits will stick in the memory for a long time (Youtube).
73 - Revenge Of The Virgins (1959)* - this nudie-cutie is enjoyable more as a curiosity as anything else, feels like an old western unless boobs are present (Youtube).
74 - Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus (2009)* - I enjoyed it, after the boring-ness of the last film I watched from The Asylum this was an improvement, how can you dislike a film where a giant shark snatches a passenger plane out of mid-air? (DVD)
75 - The Plumber (1979)* - From Peter Weir this Aussie film had a good tension going for it between the plumber and the woman and you are never quite sure how much is in her mind (DVD).

April 13

76 - Wizards Of The Demon Sword (1991)* - It's a cheap sort of spoof of cheap sword and sorcery movies, I thought it was a fun movie but reviews don't suggest it. Happy birthday to Lyle Waggoner who stars (Youtube).
77- Cannibal Man (1973)* - I liked it, less cannibal man then the title suggested though and more kill then kill then dispose of the body man (DVD).
78 - The Big Boss (1971) - I am a huge Bruce Lee fan so it would be with a lot of bias if I give my opinion on this movie - this is a great first leading role for Lee in a kung fu movie (DVD).
79 - Fist Of Fury (1972) - This is my favourite of the Bruce Lee movies, it's probably because Bruce Lee is pretty much angry from start to finish, lots of brilliant fight scenes. (DVD).

April 14

80 - Way Of The Dragon (1972) - A bit slower to get going then Fist Of Fury so I don't like it quite as much, but it's got Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris so I love it (DVD).
81 - Enter The Dragon (1973) - I just love the tone of the movie, it feels like it's a 70s Hong Kong movie clashing with a 70s spy movie, Bruce Lee's character is a bit of dick though when you think about it. Before they were famous role for Jackie Chan (DVD).
82 - Loose Screws (1985) - I watched this a lot when I was a kid, mostly because it was one of my only chances to see some T&A. I've got to say it hasn't aged well for me, the four teen leads are unlikable and the females are pretty much just walking boobs, some films perhaps should stay a memory (Youtube).
83 - A Gnome Named Gnorm (Upworld) (1990) - This is something I last saw when I was a kid and unlike Loose Screws it aged better for me though parts of it are childish and parts more grown up which gives it an uneven tone. One of only two films Stan Winston directed. Happy birthday Anthony Michael Hall (Youtube).
84 - Santo vs Dr. Death (1973)* - I am not too familiar with Mexican wrestling movies, but I enjoyed this enough to actually want to see more Mexican wrestling films (Youtube).
85 - Not Of This Earth (1988)* - Traci Lords first "legit" acting role is not a great movie but it's an enjoyable movie (DVD).

April 15

86 - D.O.A. (1950)* - I liked this one, good story line that kept me interested from start to finish. I picked this to knock Film Noir era off my checklist(DVD).
87 - Death Race 2000 (1975) - If I had to pick one film for this challenge that had to be mandatory to watch it would be this. This movie is an absolute classic, I could watch it again and again (DVD).
88 - Rock N Roll High School (1979) - This is the sort of perfect film for me, I'm a huge Ramones fan and I love Paul Bartel, P.J. Soles and Mary Woronov, the cheesy jokes just add to the charm for me. Joey Ramone sadly passed away on this day in 2001 (DVD).
89 - High School Caesar (1960)* - Maybe it's because it followed 2 5* classics for me but I didn't find it that good or memorable at all, maybe the Caesar wasn't Caesar enough for me or something (Youtube).
90 - Machete (2010) - My reason for watching this is I planned to spend big portions of the day watching films that qualify that I have already seen to mark the half way point of the challenge and to stop the risk of burn out. This is like a lot of Robert Rodriguez stuff to me I like it but I don't love it (DVD).
91 - Street Fighter The Movie (1994) - Sue me, I really enjoy this movie, probably the biggest reason for enjoyment is Raul Julia in his final performance as M. Bison. I know it's not a great movie but I can't resist it. I also think this is the first time in my life I've followed up a film with Steven Seagal with one starring JCVD, as I tend to avoid most of the films the pair have done (DVD).
92 - The Arena (1974)* - It's 70s Pam Grier so she's fine as hell, I liked this - entirely what I was expecting from it and that's a good thing (DVD).
93 - Silver Dragon Ninja (1986)* - not sure how I've managed to watch 8 films today, maybe it's because television has been crap and had nothing else better to do. This is is modern set ninja film that is clearly 2 (or more) films edited together and is the sole directing credit for Don Kong, who I'm going to say is a pseudonym for Godfrey Ho, it feels like one of his (if not somebody wants to copy him) (DVD).

April 16

94 - Game Of Death (1978) - A Bruce Lee movie and a Bruceploitation all wrapped into one, obviously at it's best when it's the real Lee (the three fights at the end) but there is a couple of 1978 fights particularly "Lee" against Bob Wall that aren't too bad. Watched because it's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's birthday today(DVD).
95 - Flavia The Heretic (1974)* - I enjoyed this, I am quite unfamiliar with Nunsploitation but this peaked my interest in watching further films, I don't know how tame or extreme this in regards to others in the genre (Youtube).
96 - Keith Lemon The Film (2012)* - Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 0% fresh rating and it only very recently left the IMDB Bottom 100. So it easily qualifies for critical bomb. I don't think Keith Lemon (Leigh Francis) is known in America but he is very popular at the moment as the host of Celebrity Juice (a celebrity quiz show). The film was not awful it's just he was best sticking to TV (DVD).
97 - The Raid (2011)* - I felt it qualified for the challenge because it was a film from Asia that features martial arts. Thought it was a cool flick, was really into it (DVD).

April 17

98 - Hell Comes To Frogtown (1988)* - Pretty cool movie, I enjoyed this, I particularly enjoyed Rory Calhoun and the female frog Happy birthday Rowdy Roddy Piper (DVD).
99 - The Killing Machine (1976)* - Now this is the best Sonny Chiba film I've seen for the challenge (that I haven't see before), I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. (DVD)
100 - Once Upon A Time In The West (1968) - To celebrate getting to 100 films in this challenge I marked it with one of my absolute favourite movies of all time, this film is a freaking classic. On a note don't mind using it as a wild card if it doesn't quite meet the criteria (DVD).
101 - Barbarella (1968)* - I can't believe it took me this long to see such a well known film. Really enjoyed the visuals of this film, and Jane Fonda is hot as hell here (DVD).

April 18

102 - DOA - Dead Or Alive (2006)* - Something of a box-office bomb and also an American martial arts movie. This movie was a lot of fun with plenty of attractive women (out of the bunch in this I think it's Jaime Pressly who does it most for me), not what I'd call a great movie but entertaining. Happy birthday Eric Roberts (DVD).
103 - Twisted Nerve (1968)* - Watched it because of the Kill Bill theme connection, really enjoyed this with an excellent lead performances from Hywel Bennett and Hayley Mills. Parts of it have noticeably dated though Happy birthday Hayley Mills (DVD).
104 - Game Of Death II (Tower Of Death) (1981) - If you take the Bruce Lee/Bruceploitation aspect out of this, this is a good kung fu flick in my eyes (DVD).
105 - Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988) - Love this film, it's a lot of fun, my favourite performance in the entire movie is John Vernon's (Netflix).

April 19

106 - Ready To Rumble (2000)* - stupid but at least an entertaining movie that has an odd balance of juvenile humour but moments that aren't really for kids. Before they were famous role for future wrestling star John Cena who is working out in a gym (DVD).
107 - The Fat Spy (1965)* - I enjoyed this it was a bit of a beach movie parody, some good music in there as well Today would have been Jayne Mansfield's birthday (DVD). (decided to have a slow day for a change may have a few more of these now I've passed 100 to get in the chance to watch some other none qualifying stuff).

April 20

108 - Reefer Madness - The Movie Musical (2005) - I enjoyed this movie maybe went on a bit long. Kristen Bell made me feel funny int his movie Happy 420 everyone (DVD).
109 - Maniac (1980) - Joe Spinell, man what a terrific actor. I remember when I first saw this I went into this not expecting a film so well acted, I am also big on Caroline Munro so it's a bonus(DVD).
110 - The Joe Spinell Story (2001)* - What I liked about this documentary was that some of his friends and co-workers didn't always hold back on him especially when it came to his use of alcohol, they all loved him but they don't remember him with rose-tinted glasses (DVD).
111 - The Last Horror Film (1982)* - Sort of turned into a Joe Spinell/Caroline Munro day (I didn't watch Star Crash because it wasn't that long since I last watched it), again Spinell's performance is excellent and didn't see the ending coming (DVD).

April 21

112 - Double Trouble (1967)* - I did enjoy it but I imagine in time to come it will blur into other average Elvis movies, The King singing Old McDonald Had A Farm though is not his singing highlight. Norman Rossington who appears here was also in A Hard Day's Night - he must be the only person to have acted alongside both The Beatles and Elvis. Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel went to number one today (DVD).
113 - Knock Off (1997)* - Pretty average action buddy movie, I watched it because besides a few JCVD films, I've never really giving much of his stuff a chance after watching this I don't particularly feel like I'm missing out on anything amazing (DVD).

April 22

114 - The Terror (1963)* -Happy birthday Jack Nicholson (DVD).
115 - Snakes On A Plane (2006) - (DVD).
116 - Battle Of Los Angeles (2011)* - (DVD)
117 - Cry Baby (1990)* - Happy birthday John Waters (DVD).
118 - Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)* - (DVD)
119 - Firepower (1993)* - (DVD)

April 23

120 - Planet Outlaws (1953, original footage 1939)* - Buster Crabbe passed away on this day (DVD).
121 - A Force Of One (1979)* - (DVD).
122 - Hollywood Boulevard (1976) - (DVD).
123 - Matinee (1993) - (DVD).

April 24

124 - From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) - Happy birthday Michael Parks (DVD).

April 25

125 - Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The Next Generation (1994)* - Happy birthday Renee Zellweger (DVD).

April 26

126 - Last Hero In China (1993)* - Happy birthday Jet Li (DVD). - should point out, returned to work and been working quite long hours that is why there is a sudden noticeable dip in amount watched.

April 27

127 - Danger Diabolik (1966)* - Mario Bava sadly passed away on this date (DVD).

April 28

128 - House Of Wax (1953)* Carolyn Jones born today (DVD).

April 29

129 - Grease 2 (1982) - Before they were famous (just) for Michelle Pfeiffer. Happy birthday Michelle P. (DVD).

April 30

130 - Fifteen and Pregnant (1998)* - Happy birthday Kirsten Dunst (DVD).

List Finalized

April 3rd
1. The 7th Victim (Mark Robson, 1943)*
--- Robbed of the Will to Love!: Rather odd film about rather odd people encountering a rather odd nonviolent group of Satanists.
2. Stop Me Before I Kill! (Val Guest, 1960)*
--- A diabolical new technique in suspense!: Hammer film that features a lot more talking than one would expect from a film with an exclamation point in its title.

April 5th
3. The Curse of King Tut's Tomb (Russell Mulcahy, 2006) - Part I
--- Bad acting, bad CGI, bad editing!
4. The Curse of King Tut's Tomb (Russell Mulcahy, 2006) - Part II
--- Bad acting, bad CGI, bad editing! Part II!

April 6th
5. Black Legion (Archie Mayo, 1937)*
--- Unmasking America's Brotherhood of Butchery!: Humphrey Bogart gets embroiled with an offshoot of the KKK before becoming an A-lister.
6. Brother Orchid (Lloyd Bacon, 1940)*
--- We'd like youse to meet Brother Orchid!: Edward G. Robinson clashes with Bogart and resides with flower-growing monks. Inspiration for Sister Act?

April 7th
7. Glen or Glenda (Edward D. Wood Jr., 1953)* - YouTube streaming
--- I Changed My Sex!: Only the second Wood film I've seen and the most muddled. It was like three films edited together... by a green dragon.
8. Hell Comes to Frogtown (Donald G. Jackson, 1988)* - borrowed DVD
--- A new breed of enemy has taken over the world... Sam Hell has come to take it back.: Nonsensical story about mutant frog-people and government-mandated sex.

April 8th
9. Ninja Wars (Kosei Saito, 1982)*
--- The True Professionals of Death!: A corrupt lord teams up with some devil-monks to conceive the most complex coup ever. This is complicated by a lovelorn ninja, fire-wielding monks, twins, and black riders.
10. This Island Earth (Joseph M. Newman, 1955) - borrowed DVD
--- Two mortals trapped in outer space... challenging the unearthly furies of an outlaw planet gone mad!: Also, lots of talking... so much talking!

April 9th
11. Dune Buddies (Jack Deveau, 1978)*
--- Gay prono with a surprising ending (and a lot of unsurprising ones as well).
12. Mystery Science Theater 3000: 6.9, The Girl in Lovers Lane (Charles R. Rondeau, 1960)* - YouTube streaming
--- Too Young to Know...Too Reckless to Care...: Funny riff on a terrible melodrama. Murder! Hobos! Women! Unintentional homoeroticism!
13. Wild Boys of the Road (William A. Wellman, 1933)*
--- Girls living like boys! Boys living like savages!: Great "ripped from the headlines" drama about vagrant kids during the Depression. This is melodrama done right!
14. The Mayor of Hell (Archie Mayo, 1933)*
--- In an improbable turn of events, a gangster takes charge of a boys reformatory school in a film not made for the Disney Channel.

April 10th
15. The Little Giant (Roy Del Ruth, 1933)*
--- Fun comedy that has Edward G. Robinson as a reformed gangster finding out that grifters are also prevalent in the upper crust.

April 11th
16. I Married a Monster From Outer Space (Gene Fowler, Jr., 1958)
--- The bride wore terror!: One of my favorite movies with a great female lead.

April 12th
17. Cat People (Jacques Tourneur, 1942)
--- To Kiss Her Meant Death By Her Own Fangs and Claws!: Great film that explores anxieties through subtle suspense. I love the ambiguity about the central character and her "curse".
18. The Curse of the Cat People (Gunther von Fritsch & Robert Wise, 1944)
--- Strange, Forbidding, Thrilling!: This sequel feels more like a contemplation on childhood and focuses on several different types of anxieties felt by children and parents. Again, the story is ambiguous and open to interpretations.
19. Miao Tan Shuang Long (aka City Cops) (Chia Yung Liu, 1989)*
--- East Meets West in the Ultimate Showdown!: Cynthia Rothrock kicks some butt despite teaming up with two buffoons to recover microfilm.

April 13th
20. The Day of the Triffids (Steve Sekely, 1962)* - YouTube streaming
--- Man eating plants! Spine chilling terror!: Interesting mashup of "end-of-days" and monster attack films. While the triffids were pretty silly, their were several intense scenes.
21. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! (John De Bello, 1978)*
--- Aaargh! ...!: Perhaps this will be a new guilty pleasure, cause I absolutely loved it! Lots of great visual gags made more awesome by the lack of acting ability or resources.
22. Jackie Brown (Quentin Tarantino, 1997)*
--- Six players on the trail of a half a million in Cash. There's only one question... Who's playing who?: Jackie Brown, a woman I would go straight for.
23. The Body Snatcher (Robert Wise, 1945)*
--- Foul Fingers Crimson with Dead Men's Blood!: Macabre story inspired by Knox's association with infamous Burke & Hare. Lots of great atmosphere and gothic overtones.
24. Railroaded! (Anthony Mann, 1947)*
--- Tormented by an unknown fear. Haunted by an unknown enemy.: Tagline has little to do with this short, tense noir about a woman attempting clear her innocent brother of a cop killing.

April 14th
25. The Wild One (Laslo Benedek, 1953)*
--- Marlon Brando! Driven Too Far By His Own Hot Blood!: Brando stars as a young man who strikes iconic poses as his band of hoodlums terrorize a town. Reminded me of Firecreek, a western about a small town under the whim of a band of outlaws.

April 17th
26. Roadracers (Robert Rodriguez, 1994)*
--- Made-for-television homage to delinquent teenage films. Great style and acting.

April 18th
27. When Worlds Collide (Rudolph Mate, 1951)* - borrowed DVD
--- Planets destroy earth!: It's the end of the world, and everything proceeds according to plan until the script demands upsets. I really enjoyed the montage of things flooding, falling down, and blowing up.
28. Sudden Fear (David Miller, 1952)*
--- A Breathtaking Experience!: Joan Crawford rocks in this film noir with feminist undertones and brilliant cinematography.

April 21st
29. Black Belt Jones (Robert Clouse, 1974)*
--- He clobbers the mob!: Black Belt goes up against the Italian mob and the local drug dealers to avenge the local martial arts guru's death. (Marla Gibbs tends some bar!)

April 22nd
30. Lady Killer (Roy Del Ruth, 1933)*
--- Interesting film that has James Cagney going from theater usher to criminal to Hollywood superstar. Pretty funny little film.
31. The Royal Scandal (Rodney Gibbons, 2001)*
--- Television adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes story. Great fun despite the television budget and some odd staging.

April 23rd
32. The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire (Rodney Gibbons, 2002)*
--- Television movie with an original Holmes mystery and an interesting plot about monks being stalked and killed by seemingly supernatural forces.
33. Other Men's Women (William A. Wellman, 1931)*
--- Love's Madness Against a Background of Grinding Steel and Surging Floods!: Passable melodrama about railroad workers who find themselves at odds over a woman. (Ain't it always a dame!)

This will be my first challenge of this type I've participated in here or elsewhere. I should be studying for an upcoming exam this summer during this time. Between that and work I don't know how prolific I'll be, but this will be a fun diversion anyway.

I didn't really intend to set a goal, but I'd like to watch at least 45 with 3/4 of them being first time viewings.

These are DVDs unless noted.
BD = Blu-ray Disc
NWI = Netflix Watch Instantly
AIV = Amazon Instant Video
TCM/TCMU = Turner Classic Movies/Turner Classic Movies Underground

* first time viewing

April 1
1. Kansas City Confidential (Karlson, 1952)* NWI Engaging revenge film noir with Lee Van Cleef in one of his earliest roles playing a baddie.
2. Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw (Lester, 1976)* NWI Pretty enjoyable fugitive/on the run flick with Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) baring her nice rack a few times.
3. Rolling Thunder (Flynn, 1977)* I'm really glad I finally watched this. Awesome revenge film. 70s films are the best.

April 2
4. Bad Lieutenant (Ferrara, 1992)* AIV Watching Harvey Keitel's spiraling descent was kind of a beautiful thing to witness...his full frontal nudity less so. Probably not the best film to watch with my mom, but she's in town visiting and at the mercy of this challenge along with me.
5. The Mercenary aka A Professional Gun (Corbucci, 1968)* NWI Very entertaining Spaghetti Western with Sergio Corbucci and Franco Nero working together again after Django. Jack Palance was sporting a nice looking perm. Fun stuff. Definitely recommended.
6. Succubus (Franco, 1968)* Bizarre. Janine Reynaud making out with mannequins at one point. I couldn't really get into it but may revisit later. Nonetheless, RIP Jess Franco.

April 4
7. Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry (Hough, 1974)* Fun car chase/police escape flick. Peter Fonda drove the hell out of the cars in this. Pretty bad dialogue with a surprise ending.
8. Two-Lane Blacktop (Hellman, 1971)* BD Well done road movie with some good drag racing scenes. A nice snapshot of America with some familiar scenery in Tennessee and North Carolina. Interesting casting choice with Beach Boy Dennis Wilson in his only film role and a young James Taylor with hair in a rare acting role. Warren Oates was great as G.T.O.

April 5
9. Death Race 2000 (Bartel, 1975)* BD I've been meaning to watch this for a while. Cool concept and lots of action. It's deserving of its cult classic status. (Happy Birthday, Roger Corman!)
10. Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel (Stapleton, 2011)* Nice documentary on the legend with some interesting interviews with many Hollywood folks he inspired and whose careers he helped launch. I especially liked the scenes with Jack Nicholson. It could've been a bit more in depth but made me want to explore more of his films I haven't seen.

April 6
11. Rosie Dixon - Night Nurse (Cartwright, 1978)* (Drive-In Classic channel) Dated British sex comedy with lots of cheesy humor. Teenager Rosie Dixon decides to become a nurse but has to deal with most of the doctors and patients at her hospital continually groping her. There was a good amount of T&A throughout including several scenes with the nurses showering together.
12. Drive-In Movie Memories (Kuenne, 2001)* AIV Nice little documentary on the history of drive-in theatres. It makes me want to check out a local drive-in when it opens for the season.
13. Don’t Turn the Other Cheek aka Long Live Your Death (Tessari, 1971)* AIV Decent spaghetti western comedy during the Mexican Revolution with Franco Nero, Eli Wallach, and Lynn Redgrave (she had a nice but silly fight scene.) Pretty campy humor and good action that was enjoyable enough since it didn’t run on too long.
14. White Lightning (Sargent, 1973)* Entertaining movie with lots of action and car chase/moonshine running scenes. Probably my favorite Burt Reynolds role, and Ned Beatty was convincing as the corrupt small-town sheriff. Pretty authentic depiction of small town life in the South.
15. The Wild Angels (Corman, 1966)* Roger Corman directing Peter Fonda, Bruce Dern, etc. in a Hell's Angels biker flick. Nothing amazing but a good biker flick that led the way for others.
16. Dolemite (Martin, 1975)* Blaxploitation classic that I should've watched years ago. Lots of fun, and Rudy Ray Moore had a bunch of great one liners.

So much for leaving the house or getting anything done today.

17. Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story (Schwarz, 2007)* TCMU Great documentary on the godfather of gimmicks. My knowledge of him was pretty much limited to John Waters' admiration of him as a big influence in his This Filthy World show. Waters along with Roger Corman, Fred Olen Ray, Joe Dante, etc. shared their appreciation of his filmmaking and perhaps morseo his marketing skills here. It made me nostalgic for a time of going to the movies I never was alive to witness.
18. Macabre (Castle, 1958)* TCMU The first of his gimmick films. The plot according to IMDb: a doctor's daughter is kidnapped and buried alive, and he is given just five hours to find and rescue her. This was okay, but I'm sure it would've been a lot more interesting experiencing it at the time of release.
19. Perversion for Profit (1965)* TCMU TCMU educational documentary shorts. This one was sponsored by the Citizens for Decent Literature (founded by Charles Keating who produced this film and was later implicated in the Savings and Loan scandal in the 80s...pretty ironic/hypocritical) warning all good God-fearing Americans of the perils of pornography, homosexuality, sodomy, sado-masochism, etc. perpetuated by godless Communists trying to make a quick buck. Thankfully, the film showed many examples of nude stills from magazines with different men and women very slightly censored so we know what to avoid.

Crisis in Morality (1962)* TCMU Another educational short documentary narrated by the Vice President of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles. This was all about how America is destroying itself internally like Rome and other civilizations due to drug use, youth crime, divorce, etc. caused primarily by a declining belief in Jesus and adherence to Christian principles. It's not too late, though, if we change our sinful ways.

To Your Health* TCMU The last educational short documentary was an animated one produced by the World Health Organization. It discussed the perils of alcoholism and its impact on health. It was shorter and a lot less preachy than the previous two.
20. Vigilante (Lustig, 1983)* BD Really great revenge flick with an excellent cast. I'll have to watch it with the commentary tracks at some point.

(non-challenge) Lincoln (Spielberg, 2012)* BD Nice anti-blaxploitation Hollywood fare with Daniel Day-Lewis in an Oscar-worthy role with a nice supporting cast. One that everyone enjoyed.

April 9
21. Bikini Beach (Asher, 1964)* AIV 60s AIP camp fun with Frankie and Annette. Pretty cheesy but can't go wrong with a surfing/drag racing monkey and plenty of bikinis on the beach. I'm a day late and disappointed my OOP Back to the Beach DVD has a manufacturing defect that wouldn't let me finish it. RIP Annette.

April 10
22. Massage Parlor Murders (Fox/Stevens, 1972)* BD Vinegar Syndrome did a nice job bringing this back and restoring it. Nice low budget exploitation movie with plenty of action, demented killer, blood, and T&A. A bit slow at times but enjoyable overall. IMDb lists it as Massage Parlor Hookers (1976).

April 11
22. Miami Connection (Kim/Park, 1987)* BD Ridiculously fun bad movie full of 80s cheesiness. Crap acting, cheesy synth pop, bad editing, etc. throughout while a rock band who are all black belts in Tae Kwon Do battle a coke dealing gang and ninjas. Awesome.

April 12
23. Death Weekend (Fruet, 1976)* (VHS-sourced DVD-R) Nice opening car chase sets the stage in this tense home invasion + rape/revenge film. Gritty and violent. Brenda Vaccaro did a nice job as the victim seeking revenge.
24. The 'Burbs (Dante, 1989) It's been a long time since I've seen this since I was pretty young, and I didn't remember much about it. Fun dark comedy dealing with suburban paranoia and weird neighbors. Underrated 80s movie with some wacky humor and great one-liners. Bruce Dern was hilarious.

April 13
25. Long Weekend (Eggleston, 1978)* A couple go camping for the weekend at an isolated beach and run into constant trouble as they fight with each other and the natural environment around them. Chilling atmosphere created from the great cinematography and eerie soundtrack. It plodded along at times. The ending, while not a big surprise, was very effective.
26. Wild Weed aka She Shoulda Said "No" (Newfield [under the pseudonym "Sherman Scott"], 1949)* AIV Exploitation/"educational" film starring Lila Leeds that was produced to capitalize on her arrest the previous year with Robert Mitchum for possession of marijuana at her home. The film struggled to find a distributor until Kroger Babbs' Hallmark Production acquired the distribution rights. In one of his marketing gimmicks, Babbs sent letters to local communities falsely claiming the US Treasury Department implored Hallmark to release the film "in as many towns and cities as possible in the shortest possible length of time" as a public service. It was a successful gimmick and made lots of money. Similar scare tactics reminiscent of Reefer Madness are used portraying weed as a gateway drug and showing kids maniacally laughing after smoking. Pretty standard good girl gone bad story where Leeds' character ruins her career, and her brother kills himself after she starts smoking marihuana/marijuana. She shoulda said "no" indeed. I also shoulda said "no" to this film.
27. She Woke Up Pregnant (Contner, 1996)* (Lifetime TV movie via YouTube) A sleazy dentist played by Joe Penny sexually assaults his patients while they are under heavy sedatives after he performs dental surgery on them. One woman gets impregnated by him and decides to fight back. The dentist denies the rape allegations and claims they had an affair. This causes a lot of problems for her marriage and personal life because her husband (who had a vasectomy and reminds her of this during an argument by stating "My sperm has no semen!") questions her fidelity. Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) plays the dentist's lawyer. Based on a true story.

April 14
28. Schlock! The Secret History of American Movies (Greene, 2001)* Well done documentary on exploitation films with informative interviews with Roger Corman, Doris Wishman, Sam Arkoff, etc. and nice archival footage. It does a good job of going over the basics and exploring some subgenres even if it's a bit limited. The part on sexploitation was interesting to see the advent of nudie cuties vs. roughies and beyond.
29. The Immoral Mr. Teas (Meyer, 1959)* Russ Meyer's feature film debut was the first nudie cutie and pushed the envelope for what was permissible on screen. It's dated and reminded me of early French comedies, and the only audio was from somewhat repetitive music and a narrator. The main character is a door-to-door salesman of dental equipment who ogles and daydreams about the women he encounters. It had some nice T&A, especially for the time. Despite its historical importance, I'm glad this only ran a bit over an hour.
30. Bad Girls Go to Hell (Wishman, 1965)* My first Doris Wishman film. A 60s sexploitation flick/roughie brought back by Something Weird Video. Somewhat entertaining if only for a scantily clad Gigi Darlene but overall passable.
31. The Last Dragon (Schultz, 1985)* TCMU Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon courtesy of Motown Productions is a lot of fun. Cheesy 80s music and effects and lots of ridiculous fight scenes and lines. Very entertaining kung fu movie with a ton of Bruce Lee references. Sho'nuff!

April 15
32. Ladies They Talk About (Bretherton/Keighley, 1933)* TCM Early WIP pre-Code drama starring Barbara Stanwyck as a member of a small gang of bank robbers who is caught and goes to prison. Pretty enjoyable despite some overacting.

April 16
Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence: Quentin Tarantino (Trachtenberg, 2008)* TCMU Nice interview with Tarantino on his early influences and his appreciation of some classics. He's an interesting guy with a weird, frenetic energy for sure, but he's passionate about films and it shines in this interview. I figured the timing of this re-airing this morning was perfect for picking up Django Unchained on release day today.

33. Django Unchained (Tarantino, 2012) BD I saw this when it was released in theaters, and it was a great movie-going experience. The crowd was really engaged and into it. Over-the-top Tarantino fun and a nice homage to his influences as always. I've been anticipating the Blu-ray release for a while and was not disappointed rewatching this. Looks great on BD.

April 17
34. Hobo with a Shotgun (Eisener, 2011)* BD Bloody and violent and a ton of fun. Rutger Hauer was awesome. Surprise visit from Robb Wells aka Ricky from Trailer Park Boys. O Canada!

April 20
35. Number One with a Bullet (Smight, 1987)* NWI Pretty decent 80s buddy cop flick.
36. The Lords of Salem (Zombie, 2012)* (Theater) What I saw was good and pretty creepy atmosphere. I'll have to watch again when it's released on home video since I admittedly had a little trouble staying awake for the whole film.

April 27
37. Surf II (Badat, 1984)* (a friend's VHS-sourced DVD-R) Ridiculous, campy 80's surf/'zombie' movie with Eddie Deezen and a young Eric Stoltz, T&A, and a nice soundtrack with a good amount of Oingo Boingo. Also, there is no Surf I.

April 28
38. Killer Nun (Berruti, 1979)* BD Nice and sleazy giallo/nunsploitation with a great performance by Anita Ekberg in the lead role as a troubled nun. She was past her prime at this point but still did a nice job.
39. Menace II Society (Hughes/Hughes, 1993) This was to go towards "hood film" on the checklist. I forgot I saw this a long time ago. Powerful film and one of the best of the genre.

April 29
40. Fist of Fury aka The Chinese Connection (Lo, 1972)* Nice action-packed Bruce Lee film with some interesting historical/political undertones with the conflict between the Chinese vs. Japanese.
41. Blind Fist of Bruce (Luk, 1979)* Got this Bruce Li DVD used for $2 at a local record store a week ago for this challenge. Fun stuff and certainly worth the price of admission.
42. Evil Bong (Band, 2006)* Decent stoner horror comedy with appearances by Tommy Chong and Bill Moseley. Definitely a Full Moon flick.
43. Calibre 9(Di Leo, 1972)* BD Really glad I picked up the 4 disc Di Leo BD set from amazon when it was $12.99. Great deal, and this film alone would be worth it.

I took the day off work today to be lazy and catch up a bit since I didn't really have a chance to watch anything last week.

April 30
44. The Brain That Wouldn't Die (Green, 1962)* AIV Non-MST3K version of this sci-fi classic. I need to watch the MST3K version I have on DVD that I've been putting off watching for years.
45. Birdemic: Shock and Terror (Nguyen, 2010)* I regretfully watched this to knock out a "horror" movie that was also in the IMDb bottom 100. It's rightfully #6 at the moment. It's hard to imagine many worse movies exist. It's difficult to put into words how bad it is from the crap wooden acting, poor sound editing, shitty CGI of the birds, etc. I'm guessing Hitchcock wouldn't be too proud he influenced this. It's kind of hard to believe Severin picked this up to distribute it and that it got a Blu-ray release given the shitty video quality. I'll have to buy the RiffTrax commentary to get their take on this one.

April 1.
1. Willard (1971). YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3Fndi62nGI)--Oh, rats!

April 2.
2. Phantoms (1998). TV--Phantoms is one of Dean Koontz's better novels, but this adaptation just plods. Affleck has become a great director, but I've seen planks of wood give more emotive line readings. And how did the producers blackmail Peter O' Toole into appearing in this flick? It's not a complete waste of time, but it could have been so much better.

April 4.
3. Gargoyles (1972). YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2M46l0wEo0)--Hey, SyFy, this is how you make a creature feature! I'd love to see Guillermo Del Toro take a whack at remaking it.
4. Spiders (2013). Blu-Ray-Giant spiders with alien DNA terrorize NYC. Pretty lame SyFy-style critter flick.

April 9
5. Revolt of the Slaves (1960). TV--Typical 60s Italian peplum, although the hero could use more muscle.

April 10.
6. Boss Ni663r (1975). YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBuXxvSvfHw&list=PL302B4567CC1C852D)--The Hammer stars in this 70s blaxploitation Western as a badass bounty hunter in the Old West.

April 13.
7. Kingdom of the Spiders (1977). YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXdBBDg57Pg&feature=related)--From the inartful country tune over the opening credits to cheesetastic Shatner acting KotS is pure 70s drive-in awesome!

April 16.
8. Nightmares (1983). YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llNNTfbJ7Ww)--An anthology film in the vein of Creepshowand Tales from the Darkside. The Emilio Estevez segment is the best, IMO.

April 18.
9. Terrorvision (1986). TV--Deliberately attempting to be camp rarelyt goes over well, and this movie about a monster from outer space that arrives in a family's satellite dish is just too over the top.

April 19.
10. The Holy Mountain (1973). Blu-Ray--Cult films don't get much cultier than Jodowsky's "The Holy Mountain", a hallucinatory mishmash of Catholic imagery, Mexican history, and lots of naked people.

April 21
11. Beach Blanket Bingo (1965). TV--Sleep well, Ms. Funicello.
12. The Gay Falcon (1941). TV--Sadly, not a gay porn remake of The Maltese Falcon. Instead it's an entertaining B-picture starring the underrated George Sanders as a playboy detective who gets involved in murder and diamond theft in high society.

1st
Trailers: The Sadist, A Scream in the Streets, The Butcher of Binbrook (aka Necrophagus), Christian-trailer gallery (https://www.youtube.com/v/oDWC5T59OUg), Dirty Duck (Trailersfromhell)
Shorts: Striporama-"Betty Page Speaks!" (https://www.youtube.com/v/BT72NwdtZSA)
1. (1TV) Anatomy of a Psycho (1961)-Pretty interesting concept (For it's time) but this was a little too much on the talky side....And I already hope this is the last time I encounter a courtroom/trial scene in this challenge.
2. (1TV) If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? (1971)-Believe the hype! :D:thumbsup:
3. (1TV) Rolling Vengeance (1987)-Basic 80's revenge movie with a killer monster truck and Ned Beatty (Playing the baddie!) The big scene-stealer was to hear the immortal vengeance theme song: "Coming Up On You" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8f7-KLaJiA)
4. (1TV) The Return of Ringo (1965)-Though it's been well over a decade since I last saw the previous film, Pistol for Ringo, this sequel was miles better. Loved Morricone's music (No surprise) and Giuliano Gemma sure reminded me of Tatsuya Nakadai on more than one occasion.
5. (1TV) Three on a Meathook (1973)-Yeesh. Everyone's correct in pointing out how slooooow this one is. All I can say is thank God for the (Mild) gory moments and the "wah-wah" guitar.
--------------------------------------------
2nd
Trailers: SS Experiment Love Camp, SuperManChu, Cannonball, Your vice is a locked door and I have the key, Let's Do it!
Extras: Shock Festival MP3 audio disc
6. (1TV) Hitler--Dead or Alive (1942)-Well, I do give some kudos to this for being one of the few madcap comedies which ends on a BLEAK note, and (Believe it or not) Tarantino says this was an influence on Inglorious Basterds. The last acts in both movies even look familiar.
7. (1TV) Taoism Drunkard (1984) (aka Drunken Wu-Tang)-Unquestionably, one of the most insane kung-fu films I've ever seen. The movie was always at it's best whenever the villain, "Old Devil", was onscreen though.
8. (1TV) Corvette Summer (1978)-Despite liking the movie, there wasn't enough car-action to qualify as Carsploitation. Thankfully, Dick Miller showed up to save the day!
9. (1TV) Paranoia (1970)-Not only was this not the blood-drenched giallo that I was expecting, but I got this mixed-up with ANOTHER "Paranoia". But you can't blame me for screwing this up since this film has the SAME title, SAME director, SAME lead actress, and it was made/released within the same year! I ended up sticking to the movie anyway. Turned out to be an okay potboiler.
10. (1TV) Screwballs (1983)-Wow. I'm always used to seeing 80's T&A comedies contain some sort of serious/romantic subplots, but this one was just non-stop perversion! Favorite moments were the Drive-In sequence (W/ The Arena playing) and Raven's cameo.
--------------------------------------------
3rd
Trailers: The Fiend of Dope Island, Blast-Off Girls, Destory All Monsters, Orgasmo Nero
Extras: Something Weird Evening Magazine Exposes SWV (https://www.youtube.com/v/2hnQuDpPYf8)
11. (1TV) Two-Gun Man from Harlem (1938)-Heavy print-damage to the film often made it unwatchable, but the one thing I couldn't help but notice was how casual Mantan Moreland's performance was...A few years before he began to always over-exaggerate.
12. (1TV) The Monster (1925)-Despite the fact that Lon Chaney really isn't given very much to do here (Though it's still cool to see him as a Mad Doctor) this was still very watchable and deserves to be seen by more folks.
13. (1TV) Bikini Beach (1964)-As bad as this was, it was nowhere near as painful to sit through ala Beach Blanket Bingo....In fact, I actually thought this was the best of the Frankie/Annette-Beach movies that I've seen.
14. (1TV) Phantom from Space (1953)-I admit doing some snoozing off during the middle of this. But what I can tell you is that this movie contains gratuitous theremin music and gratuitous dog-barking.
15. Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)-I last watched this as a little kid and the only thing I remembered about it was the thief who turned into a green gorilla(!) After now re-visiting this, I was surprised at how solid I found this G-entry to be.
16. (1TV) Emanuelle:Queen of Sados (1980)-Even though some of Gemser's films go off the deep end, it's rare to see her in a role of a conniving & demanding "Queen B!tch"! (One of it's alternate titles) That element, along with (Some) of the steamy sex scenes, sets this one apart from the others. BTW, Another one of the film's alternate titles is "Emanuelle's Daughter" and yes, she does play the guardian of a VERY teen-aged daughter. Unfortunately, the cut that I saw included the daughter's nude scenes. -ohbfrank-
--------------------------------------------
4th
Trailers: Ator The Fighting Eagle, Skin 'Em Alive, Eugenie...The Story of her Journey into Perversion, Beyond The Gate, Outlaw Riders, A Taste of Blood, The Chilling, The Hazing, Redeemer, Don't Go in the House, Schoolgirls in chains
Extras: 42nd Street Pete's Grindhouse Panel with Tom Atkins (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2hL6ixyqVs)
17. (1TV) Iron Warrior (1987)-I never even knew that a 3rd Ator movie existed (Although I should've had a clue since the cover of Cave Dwellers (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51DP52B3C1L._SL500_SS500_.jpg) used an image taken from this movie) Anyway, the only reason to check this out is to see the shot-for-shot remake(s) of certain sequences from Excalibur,Raiders of the Lost Ark and Superman:The Movie!
18. (1TV) Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown (1991)-Jeezus. This felt like it was over 2 hours long. Lots of boobage, but not enough violent splatter (Which the 1st movie had)
19. (1TV) The Dirt Gang (1972)-Odd that this was made in '72. It looks and sounds like it was made about 4 years earlier (It just has that rich, 60's AIP look about it) Not a biker classic, but it definetly does NOT deserve a 1.6 rating at IMDB (Possibly due to the fact that so few have seen this) Nice to spot the starlet duo of Uschi & Malta as biker-groupies :thumbsup:
20. (1TV) Caddyshack II (1988)-My Bad Sequel to a "Well regarded film" pick. To be honest, The first 7 or 8 minutes had me thinking, "Maybe I shouldn't listen to all the haters". But once Chevy's first cameo ended, the movie went straight to hell.
21. (1TV) Killer's Delight (1978)-Kind of a standard manhunt flick involving a deranged kiler who loves breaking the bones of his female victims. I admit doing a bit of shuddering when we see the fingers of one victim getting snapped and I loved the last shot of the movie. No pun intended.
22. (1TV) South Seas Massacre (1974)-Fillipino oddity with Troy Donahue as a shipwrecked prisoner who washes up onshore handcuffed to his captor, a Cleavon Little-lookalike (Defiant Ones, anyone?) The men soon befriend the island natives before some nasty pirates show up to conquer the land. Things slow down in the middle, but I had certainly had enough fun with the beginning & closing acts. Probably the most fun I've yet to have!
--------------------------------------------
5th
Trailers: Q (Teaser), Blood Suckers, Redneck County, Trouble Man, Hit Man, Invasion of the Blood Farmers, Cannibal Girls, Hell Of The Living Dead (All three minutes & fifty-seconds of it!)
Extras: NY Times Square & 42nd Street (https://www.youtube.com/v/kj93ey9Pvtg)
23. (1TV) Damaged Goods (1937)-Despite the soundtrack sounding like it was being played backwards at times, I found this to be a refreshing entry in the roadshow world. Tons of drug flicks to go around, but hardly any that deal with STDs!
24. (1TV) Carnosaur (1993)-Dare I say that the plot was a little more complicated than it should have been?
25. (1TV) With Death on Your Back (1967)-Okay Eurospy movie with George Hilton. Could've used more Rosalba Neri.
26. (1TV) Land of the Minotaur (1976)-By the time this ended, it felt like I had watched some sort of prequel to Prince of Darkness where Priest Donald Pleasance battles the devil again! And aside from this film being realtively uneventful, I was still very much into it...Which could be thanks to Pleasance & Cushing.
27. (1TV) The Great Texas Dynamite Chase (1976)-Now this is the movie that Dixie Dynamite tried to be but completely failed at. Man, I really loved the Claudia/Tara duo here. And after checking out Tara's filmography, I didn't even realize that I've seen/owned all her theatrical films!
28. (1TV) Drive-In Madness! (1987)-An extremely jumbled (And very 80's) attempt at putting the drive-in experience in a compilation of trailers and interviews. Most of the trailers are from the IIP catalog and and a majority of the interviewees (Who consist of the filmmakers of Night of the Living Dead) spend most of their time talking about NOTLD (Quite understandable since NOTLD was approaching it's 20th Anniversary at that time. I, personally, remember that being HUGE news back in the day) Still though, this ended up being slightly rewarding for me just to see good ol' Linnea being interviewed (Looking incredibly cute here :eyebrow: ) and Forry Ackerman's recollections of working on Dracula vs Frankenstein certainly got some chuckles out of me.
29. (1TV) Terminal Island (1973)-I would say that this movie reached the hype, but the problem is that there's virtually no hype surviving for this one. Which is such a shame because I enjoyed it greatly. It's almost like Fukusaku's Battle Royale only with sentenced-prisoners, male & female. "Too Damn Bad" is easily the best theme song I've heard thus far in this challenge! Oh, and make this the 2nd movie where I've seen a baddie go by the name of "Monk".
--------------------------------------------
6th
Extras: Home movies from the set of Orgy of the Dead
30. (1TV) Barb Wire (1996)-My Financial Bomb pick. This movie has as much dialogue as a Woody Allen film. No joke.
31. (1TV) The Terror Beneath the Sea (1966)-Sonny Chiba in an underwater monster movie (Something I thought I'd never say) I feared that this would be one of those movies that feature endless amounts of (Coma-inducing) scuba-diving sequences. Thankfully, all we were given was just one. I'd recommed this movie just to watch how badly entertaining the english-speaking actors are.
32. (1TV) Death Rage (1976)-A very reserved and low-brow crime/action piece from Marghereti. Possibly the hottest I've ever seen Barbara Bouchet look.
33. (1TV) The Sinister Urge (1960)-Ed Wood's most solid film? The intro to the film pointed out that this may very well be Wood's most competent movie and, thus far, I'd have to agree!
34. (1TV) Amuck (1972)-A little long and a little slow here and there, but highly worth checking out if you're into Barbara Bouchet and Rosalba Neri. Man, forget what I said about Barabara in Death Rage. Both her and Rosalba were freakin' ravishing here!!!
35. (1TV) Hapkido (1972)-Probably the biggest cast I've ever seen in a Golden Harvest film (Speaking of which, I think this is the slimmest I've ever seen Sammo look before!) Only drawbacks I had was that the plot/scenery was almost a dead-on imitation of Fist of Fury and some of the fight choreography looked sloppy in the early going. Definetly worth checking out just to see Angela whoopin' @$$ though.
--------------------------------------------
7th
Trailers: The Embalmer, The She-Beast, Iron Master (French trailer), The Big Alligator River, Zombi Holocaust
Shorts: The Beast on Sunset Strip (https://www.youtube.com/v/pGLVw3pXids)
36. (1TV) The Hypnotic Eye (1960)-Decent evil hypnotist flick. One thing that's different about it is that there isn't much death in this because he forces the victims do self-mutilation (Yikes!)
37. (1TV) Hawk the Slayer (1980)-I already admit to snoozing/dozing-off on a few movies already, but none of those had me as bored as this one.
38. (1TV) Shark Attack (1999)-God. Two boring duds in a row. I'm still willing to check off Shark Attack 3 for this challenge. Hopefully that one actually focuses more on shark attacks than this one did.
39. (1TV) White Cannibal Queen (1980)-Another crummy movie...But at least I found this to be badly entertaining. Can't be sure, but I think this movie contains the most blood that I've ever seen in a Jess Franco film! (There's some movies of his where 1 drop of blood couldn't even be afforded!)
--------------------------------------------
8th
Trailers: Bottom's up!, I was a man
40. (1TV) The Beach Bunnies (1976)-Obviously nothing spectacular here, but for mid-70's softcore, it gets it's job done well.
41. (1TV) Reptilicus (1961)-Sightly above average 60's monster movie. What sets this one apart from the others are the bizarre special effects.
42. (1TV) Sins of Rachel (1972)-Incredibly dry murder-mystery with homosexuality, incest and....Kung-Fu training.
43. (1TV) Macabre (1958)-Man, I didn't think a William Castle movie could ever be so complicated. I was completely lost by the 35th minute.
--------------------------------------------
9th
Trailers: Run Swinger Run, The Black Cat (1966), My Third Wife George
44. (1TV) Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural (1973)-This kinda reminded me of Malle's Black Moon with vampires & werewolves. Interesting and creepy moments here and there, I just expected a bit more given the (Minor) hype.
45. (1TV) Firewalker (1986)-Though it was actually quite a pleasure to see Chuck give such a loose performance, this movie didn't need to be that long.
46. (1TV) Mosquito (1995)-Enjoyably silly. Loved Gunnar Hansen in this.
47. (1TV) Teenage Thunder (1957)-Quite surprised by this! The cliches are expected, but I really liked the movie's flow and the handling of the father figures here.
48. (1TV) Axe (1977)-I've never heard any good things about this, but felt like finally giving it a try anyway. Storywise, there is some potential to work with here. Its' just that the direction is soooo slooooow....Even the 1-hour runtime can be felt.
49. (1TV) She-Man: A Story of Fixation (1967)-Another slow and (Mostly) uneventful movie, but damned if this still wasn't the most oddest thing I've watched yet!
--------------------------------------------
10th
Trailers: Red Roses of Passion, Lady Streetfighter, The Last Reunion, ....Mixed Up-Zombies, Rat Pfink & Boo Boo
50. (1TV) Bacchanale (1970)-Forget what I said above about watching the most strangest movie yet. I'm 100% sure it won't be topped now!
51. (1TV) Cheaters' Club (2006)-My "Lifetime Movie" pick. Thanfully, I ended up picking one that had a slasher-mystery plot. I certainly didn't think I would be able to handle one of these if they lacked those devices. Oh, and Charisma Carpenter was lookin' good...
52. 42nd Street Forever, Volume 4: Cooled by Refrigeration (2009)-My least-viewed volume of the 42nd streets. Felt like giving it's commentary a listen.
53. (1TV) Battle Beyond the Stars (1980)-I remember seeing a little bit of this waay back in the day. Can't really say it was worth the wait to see the whole thing. I understand that Robert Vaughn was a reprising a role that he played in Magnificent 7, but here, he sure came off looking like the most pissed-off actor to have ever worked on a movie :lol:
54. (1TV) Sorority Girl (1957)-Even though I had to watch a Lifetime Channel-movie earlier in the day, this was the film that ended up feeling more "Lifetime" than the previous one did. Thank god it was barely an hour long.
55. (1TV) Boogievision (1977)-Okay, hopefully this will be the LAST "WTF?" movie I watch for this challenge!
--------------------------------------------
11th
Extras: Dave's Old Porn (Amy Schumer,Robert Kerman)
56. (1TV) A Day in the Life (2009)-My "Hood" pick. A fun & refreshing take on a typical shoot-em-up hood flick (All the lines in the movie are spoken in rhyme & rap) Wasn't expecting that at all! Too bad the ending sucked though.
57. (1TV) Supercross:The Movie (2005)-My "Critical Bomb" pick. At just 6% http://i43.tinypic.com/33n9jwy.jpg, I actually didn't think it was that bad. It's so damn short and flies by so fast, you hardly have time to notice the suckiness. At least it wasn't as painful to sit through ala Barb Wire.
58. (1TV) American Psycho II: All American Girl (2002)-My "DirectToVideo sequel" pick. Absolutely terrible. And it could have even been worse if Mila didn't star in it.
59. (1TV) No Retreat, No Surrender (1986)-Ah, so glad to go from a hatefully bad movie to a wonderfully bad one! I'm really surprised that I never got around to check this out during my youth, but good things comes to those who wait!
60. (1TV) Psycho Beach Party (2000)-I was more expecting more horror & raunchy humor (And less gay themes) but at least most of the dialogue and some of the performances made up for that. More Amy Adams wouldn't have hurt either.
--------------------------------------------
12th
61. (1TV) High School Caesar (1960)-Decent stuff for it's time. Although I was expecting more of a benevolent leading character---Rather than a guy who's more of a bossy tax collector.
62. (1TV) 2019: After the Fall of New York (1983)-Hey! It's the grindhouse version of Children of Men! Almost the same plot! I ended up liking this just enough for it to make it my 2nd favorite Italian-Apocalyptic flick (Right behind New Barbarians)
63. (1TV) The Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine (1974)-Pretty good storyline. Just slow results. This also seemed to feel like an early nunspoiltation flick---Before things began to get routinely over-the-top.
64. (1TV) Psycho a Go-Go (1965)-Like Axe, this was another one that I've never heard good things about. But at least I found this to be more watchable than Adamson's Blood/Ghastly Horror. lol'd at the "Mommth Lakes" credit at the end.
--------------------------------------------
13th
65. (1TV) Amazonia: The Catherine Miles Story (1985)-This is like the female version of Jungle Holocaust. Interesting touch by having the voiceover being the "court testimony" and the revenge scene towards the end just might be my most favorite sequence I've seen thus far in this challenge! :D
66. (1TV) Night of the Ghouls (1959)-A good concept (By Wood's standards) too bad there was only one scene that I really liked (Seance sequence)
67. (1TV) The Enforcer (1951)-My "Gangster Noir" pick. Obviously a big departure from what I've been previously watching. I admit getting a bit lost in this movie, but any flick that has flashbacks within flashbacks tends to do that.
68. (1TV) Wide Open (1974)-I guess this was a sex-comedy (Despite never laughing and having sex scenes that often ended as soon as they started) BTW, even though Christina Lindberg appears on the many covers of this movie, she's only in about 4 scenes (Two were pretty noteworthy, though)
--------------------------------------------
14th
69. (1TV) White Pongo (1945)-Mostly forgettable, but two things that stuck out to me was that the gorilla costumes looked quite good and cool (For it's time) and (Shocker!) virtually no bad stereotypes given to the natives!
70. (1TV) The Ninja Wars (1982)-Certainly the most weirdest movie I've seen from Toei (One of my most favorite studios) This was almost like a live-action version of Ninja Scroll, but not quite as cool.
71. (1TV) Cult of the Damned (1969)-There's good freak-out 60's cinema and there's annoying 60's freak-out cinema. This one falls into the latter category.
72. (1TV) Olga's Dance Hall Girls (1969-No Audrey Campbell as Olga (Strike 1) Shot with live-sound means boring, talkie scenes (Stike 2), Not enough rough stuff (Strike 3!)
73. (1TV) Panic in Year Zero! (1962)-My "End-of-the-world" pick. Not that bad at all. I just could've done without Baxter's constantly upbeat jazzy score.
74. (1TV) The Awful Dr. Orlof (1962)-Very much worth the acclaim that I've always heard. It reminded me of the film that Bava never did get to make.
--------------------------------------------
15th
Trailers: Mean Mother, Bare Knuckles, Great White
Extras: Marilyn Joi interview
75. (1TV) Drive-In (1976)-A very appropriate movie to watch for this challenge. As much as I ended up liking this, I wished that an "Urban remake" would've followed a few years later (Sorry, but all those country tunes heard in this movie started to get on my last nerve)
76. (1TV) A Special Cop in Action (1976)-About 15 minutes too long, but hardly a really dull moment to be found here. You'll recognize some Death Proof music from this.
77. (1TV) Angel Guts:Red Porno (1981)-I was bummed out earlier by the Boston bombings and felt like giving the movie-viewing a little rest. This wasn't exactly the type of stuff I wanted to see to get me back into a good mood, but at least it was only 1 hour.
78. (1TV) The Champions of Justice (1971)-The 3rd Mexican-Wrestler movie I've seen (The first one I've seen in color, also) I had a zany time with this. I'm now really curious to check out one that has the wrestlers fighting monsters now!
--------------------------------------------
16th
79. (1TV) Hot Ice (1978)-The worst movie I've watched yet.
80. (1TV) Inn of the Damned (1975)-Pretty good plot, it's just that (Since the movie is near 2-hours long) the main plot doesn't get going untill the 30-minute mark. Not that bad from then on.
81. (1TV) Requiescant (1967)-Wow. Two spaghetti westerns in a row (For this challenge) that I thought were really good. There's a few more that I had in mind to check out, but I get a feeling that I better quit while I'm ahead.
82. Bruce Lee in New Guinea (1977)-While watching the 2nd half of this, I realized I saw this before (I had previously seen it as a Kung Faux (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEKBS4E3Ik4) episode) The fights are weak, but this just might be the strangest Bruce Li flick I've seen.
83. (1TV) Bad Girls Dormitory (1986)-I'm always a little hesitant to check out a lot of 80's movies for these challenges. It's mostly because I'm just not a fan of how watered-down and how safe they are compared to films from earlier times. But every once in awhile, I'll run into a something that ends up being a surprising reward. This turned out to be one of those winners.
--------------------------------------------
17th
84. (1TV) Eye of the Tiger (1986)-Mostly By-the-numbers revenge flick. What sets it apart is an explosive climax (Resembling a Missing in Action movie) and excessive use of the title song. Good to finally see William Smith show up for my marathon!
85. (1TV) Dr. Sex (1964)-(The Good) Some hot bods on display! (The Bad) Uhh, everything else...
86. (1TV) Heat (1972)-Since Paul Morrissey's in the safe list, felt like giving this a look. From what I remembered, this film had more of a narrative and had more humor than Flesh or Trash. It's just too bad it doesn't stay as interesting towards the end.
87. (1TV) She Devils of the SS (1973)-With that title, you would think this would involve some sleazy, gruesome nazisploitation. Well, the nazisploitation setting is right, but the movie (For the most part) feels like a light-hearted sex comedy! As far as the "She-Devils" go, they really don't do nothing in this movie but hump the male troops. I think this movie also has the biggest "Huh?!?" ending I've experienced yet, too.
--------------------------------------------
18th
88. (1TV) Teenagers Battle The Thing (1958)-Forgive me for constantly daydreaming while watching this one. It's just that this movie had the most boring "Teenagers" I've ever seen in a movie.
89. (1TV) Seytan (1974)-Even though I watched this without english subtitles (And even though I could understand what was going on since this was a shot-for-shot remake!) it was interesting to see how Islam battles the devil.
90. (1TV) The Stöned Age (1994)-I remember catching bits & pieces of this on cable back in the 90's. It was good to finally see this all the way through. More enjoyable than I always expected......Just needed a bit more weed-smoking than guzzling---Since I chose this as my "Stoner" pick.
91. (1TV) The Yakuza Papers, Vol. 3: Proxy War (1973)-I've only seen 2 of these other Yakuza Papers movies, Deadly Fight/Hiroshima (Which I liked) and Battles/Humanity (Which I had problems with) Unfortunately, this entry falls into the latter. Just way, WAY too many characters to keep track of.
92. (1TV) Honky (1971)-Not only was this one of the most slowest movies I've seen in this marathon, but it also contains one of the worst endings too. Such a shame because this is one of the movies that I was looking most forward to seeing in this challenge.
--------------------------------------------
19th
93. (1TV) The Taking of Christina (1976)-When I first played this, I intended this to be my "rape/revenge" pick. Then about 40 minutes into it, I decided to change it to my "70's porn" pick. And then by the time it ended, I went back to choosing it as my "rape/revenge" pick :lol: BTW, Terri Hall sure was one hot performer. I hope to find a few more flicks with her by the end of this challenge.
94. (1TV) The Stepmother (1972)-I tried watching this a couple years ago but shut it off due to boredom. I was able to make it all the way through this time around, but the boredom was still apparent.
96. (1TV) Space Mutiny (1988)-My "MST3K" pick. Hilarious!!!!!
97. Drive-in Movie Memories (2001)-Watched this before and felt like giving it another look. Even better the 2nd time around.
--------------------------------------------
20th
Trailers: 1990 Bronx Warriors, Knightriders
98. (1TV) Assignment: Outer Space (1960)-Well, I watched this whole thing but I wasn't sure what the heck it was about. Kinda like Apollo 13 done Margheretti style....But not as charming as his other spaceman flicks.
99. (1TV) Hells Angels Forever (1983)-Not as comprehensive as the documentary as I was expecting (History channel has aired a few better docs on the subject) Still worth checking out for the time capsule though.
100. (1TV) New York Nights (1984)-Just a bunch of sex tales connected together. Only the first 3 or 4 seemed the most interesting (It helped out that one of them had a women's wrestling match...In lingerie!)
101. (1TV) Superchick (1973)-"Superho" was more like it. Not a very good film at all, but compared to a lot of Crown crap I've had to endure throughout the years, this one seemed to have something interesting going for it.
102. (1TV) Rabid Grannies (1988)-I used to always think this was some redneck, trailer-trash type flick (Not quite!) Pretty good gore gags/fx, humor and fright bits throughout. I just think I would've liked the movie more if it was about 10 minutes shorter.
103. (1TV) The Man from Hong Kong (1975)-So glad to have finally seen this. Though some of the action sequences went on a wee bit long, I still gladly welcomed the excess :D Contains (Undoubtedly) the best car chase I've seen all month long.
--------------------------------------------
21st
104. (1TV) House of the Black Death (1965)-Odd devil-worship flick with Lon Chaney Jr and John Carradine. Thank god for those peculiar dance sequences, otherwise I would've slept all the way through this.
105. (1TV) The Impossible Kid of Kung Fu (1982)-Aside from the incredibly annoying theme music, I liked this WAY more than For Y'ur Height Only. The entire karate-school scene was epic!
106. (1TV) The Resurrected (1991)-Interesting idea (And some good FX here and there) It just felt too long.
107. (1TV) A Black Veil for Lisa (1968)-Another one that I wasn't too thrilled with. And yet another version that contains scenes where the characters suddenly speak their lines in Italian without english subs. At least Lucianna looked foxy as always.
108. (1TV) Too Hot to Handle (1977)-The original Samantha Fox? As far as comparing this to other films involving the Schain/Caffaro duo, I'd put this movie in 2nd place (Right after The Abductors)
109. (1TV) Hanna D.: The Girl from Vondel Park (1984)-For some reason, I always thought this was a female vigilante flick (Dead wrong) Very downbeat and icky film (I'm still gagging over one certain shot) but I still thought it was one of the better films I've seen this month, however.
110. (1TV) Kill the Scream Queen (2004)-A little over 70 minutes, but damn near felt like 2 excrutiating hours.
--------------------------------------------
22nd
111. (1TV) Love Slaves (1976)-Finally got around to my "70s porn" check. I must admit, I don't think I've seen a bad Bob Chinn flick yet!
112. (1TV) Luther the Geek (1990)-An interesting start, but then it just goes the long cat & mouse route. I did like the ending though....For some reason.
113. (1TV) Killers from Space (1954)-Despite not being a huge winner, this was certainly more intelligent than advertised.
114. (1TV) Moorunners (1975)-The genesis of Dukes of Hazzard. There's a lot going on in this movie. It just doesn't always run as smooth as it should.
115. (1TV) The Sin of Nora Moran (1933)-This appears in 1 of my books on exploitation film, so I'm sure it's safe. The narrative is oddly structured (Definetly revolutionary for it's time) and it's so nice to finally see Zita Johan in something else (Most fans only know her for The Mummy)
116. (1TV) Kaidan hebi-onna (Snake Woman's Curse) (1968)-Disappointment. A pretty cool finale but it took an awful long time for a "Curse" to start happening.
117. (1TV) Eugenie... the Story of Her Journey Into Perversion (1970)-My first Marie Liljedahl film (Such a cutie!) and wasn't let down one bit. Another favorite of this challenge.
--------------------------------------------
23rd
118. (1TV) Jacktown (1962)-Aside from the silly ending, this felt like one of the harder-edged "Delinquent" movies. Did Rod Serling do the narration? I kept on expecting to see him suddenly face the camera and start talking to us!
119. (1TV) American Kickboxer (1991)-Might have to give it some thought, but I think this just might be the worst movie I've seen yet.
120. (1TV) Revenge of the Virgins (1959)-This could have even been much worse if it weren't for one obvious reason.
121. (1TV) Shocking Asia II: The Last Taboos (1985)-Too long. Got very restless after the leper colony segment (They even had enough nerve to throw in the shark scene from Mondo Cane) At least there was barely any man-on-animal violence to be seen here.
122. (1TV) Sorceress (1982)-Some of it's fun but most of it is very bad. At least I finally got to complete Jack Hill's filmography with this one.
123. (1TV) The Crimson Kimono (1959)-Since Sam Fuller's in the safe list, I felt like giving this one a look. I was pleased to find out that end it ended up in the upper tier of my Fuller-viewed films. Quite solid noir.
124. (1TV) The Coming of Sin (1978)-I saw this under the very suggestive title of Violation of the Bitch. Needless to say, I was expecting something very sleazy & repulsive. Instead this was just mostly tame erotica...At least the unforgettable poster-image (Involving a horse) made it into the movie.
125. (1TV) The Bod Squad (1974) (aka Virgins of the Seven Seas)-I had meant to save this one towards the end of the month, but since I had a (Mostly) un-satisfactory day, I decided to finish off the night with this one.....And it did NOT let me down one bit! Everything that I could've wished for and then some!!!!
--------------------------------------------
24th
126. (1TV) Terror in the Midnight Sun (1959)-All I remember about it is lots of skiing, lots of ice skating, lots of slow-dancing and an alien that looks like Sully from Monsters Inc.
127. (1TV) Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects (1989)-Very light on the action (Understandable since Bronson wasn't getting any younger) but at least the movie tries to push buttons with a difficult subject matter.
128. (1TV) Blood, Boobs & Beast (2007)-Though it gets very depressing towards the end, I was surprised how highly informative this ended up being. Now I feel like seeking out Blood Massacre!
129. (1TV) Love Me Deadly (1973)-The eye-opening moments are far and few between, but this still managed to be one of the most demented films I've encountered this month.
--------------------------------------------
25th
130. (1TV) Bloody Monkey Master (1981)-The original Iron Monkey. I lost interest in this half-way through. Kuan Tai Chen is a pretty good actor/fighter, but he had a bland monkey style.
131. (1TV) Mortuary (1983)-Seemed to get off to an okay start. Then everything just became shallow & predictable (Not to mention, an awful job done on the "Jump-scares") At least it was nice seeing Linda Day George again. She's like Heather Graham's hot mother!
132. (1TV) Pagan Island (1961) (From the Something Weird double feature) This seemed to end before I knew it. At least it's worth checking out just for the constant wardrobe-malfunctions.
133. (1TV) The Fiend of Dope Island (1961)-More dialogue,plot and action than what was seen in the previous film. It's just that I much perferred the silly charm of Pagan Island
134. (1TV) Caged Island Women (1980)-Take away the sex and constant T&A and you've really got...Nothing here. But uuhh, what really helps elevate this thing is Brigitte Lahaie. And maybe it's because I haven't seen her in a movie in awhile, but (Good God) she was just an absolutely unbelievable creation :drool: x10.
136. (1TV) Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship & Videotape (2010)-While it was very interesting to hear more about the expose and court stories concerning the subject, this still felt too much like a lengthy "Talking-Heads" featurette. I just would've loved to have heard more of the films themselves (Well-handled in the bookends of this documentary)
--------------------------------------------
26th
137. (1TV) The Snow Bunnies (1972)-I heard that all this is is skiing stock-footage mixed in with sex scenes and that's completely right. But this gets points from me for including Marsha Jordan & Sandy Carey. Plus this was WAY more watchable than my last Apostolof-viewed film set in the snow, Hot Ice.
138. (1TV) Cry of a Prostitute (1974)-Even though the prostitute(s) doesn't really have anything to do with the story, I still ended up liking this. A couple of brutal, bloody moments that I don't normally see in other poliziotteschi flicks.
139. (1TV) Satan's Cheerleaders (1977)-Man, Greydon Clark & PG-ratings just don't blend too well. At least I liked those cheesy disco songs.
140. (1TV) Teenage Bride (1975)-Nothing much to say here except, "Gyadamn! That was the longest sex scene I've ever witnessed!" 19-minutes, to be exact! Oh, BTW, I didn't spot any "Teenage Brides" here (Thankfully)
141. (1TV) Mega Piranha (2010)-Good God. No comment.
142. (1TV) Mr. Hercules Against Karate (1973)-I was battling marathon fatigue while watching this one. The guy that played Hercules (Or Perceval, as said in the film) kept on reminding me of Kevin Kline :lol:
--------------------------------------------
26th
143. (1TV) Hard Sensation (1980)-Well, I'd say that this would be my 2nd favorite of those D'amato/Shannon/Eastman/Ramirez-Island hardcore movies (1st would be Sesso Nero)
144. (1TV) Rape! 13th Hour (1977)-This just might be the most ickiest thing I've seen yet. But at the same time, it was also oddly compelling.
145. (1TV) Android (1982)-Aside from the awful acting done by the fugitives, I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this. That sequence with James Brown's "This is a Man's World" playing to scenes from Metropolis was pure genius.
146. (1TV) Black Eye (1974)-Blaxploitation noir. From most of the reviews I've read, this was always said to be one of the more highly-acclaimed films in the genre. But I just thought this was....Mediocre. Then again, I've just never been a big noir lover to begin with.
147. (1TV) 2020 Texas Gladiators (1984)-A promising start, but then things got strange, confusing and silly. I must say that (Visually) this was was certainly one of the interesting-looking movies I encountered this month :lol:
148. (1TV) Zeta One (1969)-It looked like there was some fun going on during the last half of this movie. Too bad it was an absolute chore trying to get there.
--------------------------------------------
27th
149. (1TV) The Body (1974)-Typical deceit type of flick. The only thing worth checking out about it is Zeudi Araya, who was like a predecessor to Laura Gemser.
150. (1TV) Death Promise (1977)-It's got a first half that drags a bit. But once we get into revenge mode, we're in for a fun ride!
151. (1TV) Savages from Hell (1968)-So-so Florida biker flick. Never knew Sidney Poitier had an older brother who did some acting!
152. (1TV) The Big Snatch (1971)-Well, if you go into this one thinking that you're watching the first roughie/soft-core movie ever made, then you should be in fine hands. And as generic as this was, I can honestly say that I was never bored once.
153. (1TV) Hercules Against the Moon Men (1964)-ZZzzz. Should've watched the MST3K version.
154. (1TV) Jail Bait (1954)-Wow. I wasn't prepared for that minstrel interlude. Plus, the return of the head-splitting Mesa of Lost Women soundtrack!
--------------------------------------------
29th
155. (1TV) Dear God No! (2011)-MUCH better than I thought it would be. Even though today's exploitation-homages seem to always go way over-the-top (ala Hobo/Shotgun) the humor here worked out incredibly well.
156. (1TV) The Cave of the Silken Web (1967)-All I can say is thank goodness for those couple of martial arts sequences otherwise this might've been the most painful thing I would've sat through this month.
157. (1TV) Daddy's Deadly Darling (1972)-Ehh, it was tough to fully grasp this thanks to the dark picture and the crazy editing. This movie did have some cool sound effects though.
158. (1TV) Firecracker (1981)-I kept on hearing that this was the "Blonde" version of TNT Jackson. And while there were some similarities here and there, I was expecting an exact carbon copy. Nice touch by having tracks from the Shogun Assassin sndtrk....And there were a couple of moments when I thought the leading actress was Bridget Fonda!
159. (1TV) Paradise, Hawaiian Style (1966)-I decided to go for the bonus entry with a Elvis pick! Since I heard this one was one of the worst, I assumed it was a safe bet. It turns out, I've actually seen worse ones than this (Harum Scare'um and Clambake come to mind) but this is still near the bottom of the barrel.
160. (1TV) The Perverse Countess (1974)-Franco's version of Most Dangerous Game certainly looks the way you would envision it to be. I watched quite a few of Jess's films this month (R.I.P, once again) and I felt like I had went out on a good note here. This was also the cutest I've ever seen Lina Romay look too.
--------------------------------------------
30th
161. (1TV) Drop Out Wife (1972)-Whoa. I found a softcore flick that was harder than Teenage Bride!
162. (1TV) Barbarian Queen (1985)-Saved by the nudity and short-running time!
163. (1TV) Girl Boss: Crazy Ball Game (1974)-Ah, so nice to revisit the Pinky Violence genre. Gang battles, kinky comedy and a dash of brutality. One thing I really liked about this one was that the opposing girl-gang leader was given more dimension.
164. Fist of Fury (1972)-My Bonus Bruce pick. I haven't seen this one in a while and watched it with the Bey Logan commentary. A good track (As always expected from him) it's just that the audio from the movie is almost as loud as the commentary.
165. (1TV) Pervert! (2005)-I wasn't as crazy about this, but had I not known about Russ Meyer's work, I'm sure I would've been more hostile towards this.
166. (1TV) The Great American Girl Robbery (1979)-Decent stuff. I expected a lot more.
167. (1TV) 'Necromania': A Tale of Weird Love! (1971)-Somewhat of a fitting end to this marathon!

Title in BLACK BOLD = DVD/Blu Ray from my personal collection.
Title in BLUE BOLD = DVD/Blu Ray rental
Title in RED BOLD = Seen online.
Title in PURPLE BOLD = Seen on regular TV broadcast.

April 1
1. The Last Flight of Noah's Ark (1980) I hasten to call it a movie because it's from a major studio (Walt Disney) but seeing as how this a relatively minor film in their filmography I include it here. Geneviève Bujold stars as a missionary who wants to set up a farm in a remote place, she enlists the aid of pilot Elliot Gould (who's presence alone makes this a B movie) and together they along with some animals and two stowaway kids fly an old B-29 bomber to their destination. After a forced landing they arrive at an island inhabited by two Japanese soldiers from WWII who don't know the war is over. Hilarity and adventure ensues as they transform their fallen plane into a boat to get off the island. G rated fun.

April 2
2. The Spirit of '76 (1990) If you grew up in the 70's (and I did) this movie is pure gold. Just the cameos alone make it worth watching - Iron Eyes Cody, Barbara Bain, Tommy Chong, the list goes on. As well as the main stars - David Cassidy and Leif Garret who were 70's teen idols. They're joined by the lovely Olivia D'abo in this comedy about people from the future who want to rebuild their world with the ideas of the Founding Fathers from 1776. However, their faulty time machine takes them to 1976. The the 70's is a decade that doesn't need to be parodied, just presenting it as it was is hilarious.

April 3
3. The Warriors (1979) A cult classic among cult classics. I could watch this film over and over and not get tired. Almost the whole dialogue is quotable. Just a fantastic movie that just gets better with age.

April 4
4. The Warrior and the Sorceress (1979) A fantasy film that plays more like a Western with David Carradine as a lone swordsman that comes into a town where two warlords battle for control of a well. Styrofoam sets, a ludicrous plot and plenty of nudity including the lovely Maria Socas who is topless the entire movie and a dance number by a girl with four breasts make this one a keeper.

April 5
5. The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning (2007) Totally bland origin story to how the Duke boys got together which makes no sense since it's set in modern times and is totally out of sync with both the TV series and the atrocious "re-imagined" movie. Every character is a caricature of themselves and even Daisy Duke is miscast with a way too thin and bland actress with no charisma. A wasted opportunity

April 6
6. Sahara* (1983) I hasten to call this a B-movie since it's supposed to have had a 25 million dollar budget which was a massive amount for 1983, but this Golan-Globus production distributed by Canon films (from the studio safe list) is pure B-movie fun. Brooke Shields stars as a race car driver in the 1920's (yes, you read that right) who travels to the Saharan desert to participate in a rally. While there she gets captured by a local tribe leader who wants her for his harem. Considered a box office bomb this is nonetheless a fun movie to watch with plenty of adventure as well as the absolutely stunning Shields who is just a joy to look at.

April 7
7. Wet Gold* (1984) Another Brooke Shields vehicle. This time she's a waitress who's on the hunt for sunken treasure with the aid of Burgess Meredith who plays a drunkard who claims to know the location of a sunken boat loaded with gold. Entertaining, plus there's plenty of scenes of Shields in a bathing suit.
8. Shadow of Fear* (2012) Made for TV movie about a young woman working in a coffee shop that is stalked by a mentally ill man. Based on true events, but that didn't make it any more exciting.
9. Santo y Blue Demon Contra Las Bestias del Terror (1973) Santo and Blue Demon investigate the disappearance of a young woman kidnapped by a mad scientist who wants to turn women into zombies. The milf-tastic Norma Lazareno stars in a miniskirt throughout the entire movie.

April 8 - Nothing
April 9
10. Thrashin'* (1986) Before they were famous: Josh Brolin, Sherylin Fenn and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. 80's skateboard movie that's just an excuse for several music video type montages of skateboard scenes. It all culminates in a big skateboard competition, of course.

April 10 - Nothing
April 11
11. Cheech and Chong's Nice Dreams* (1981) Another stoner movie from the weed-smokin' duo. Some really good laughs in this one.

April 12 - Nothing
April 13
12. Emmanuelle Through Time: Emmanuelle's Supernatural Sexual Activity* (2011) Allie Haze is the erotic icon this time around. The nonsensical plot parodies Paranormal Activity somewhat.

April 14
13. House of the Rising Sun* (2011) Vehicle for WWE wrestler Batista (Here billed as Dave Bautista, his real name). Standard cop/action movie with Bautista as an ex-cop who must find the ones who robbed a mob-run casino he was working for. Rented it because it also stars Amy Smart who really livens up any movie she's in.
14. The Girl Most Likely To...* (1973) Stockard Channing stars in this dark comedy as an ugly girl who gets plastic surgery and becomes beautiful. Then she gets revenge on all those who mocked her.

April 15
15. Staying Alive* (1983) Almost forgotten sequel to Saturday Night Fever with virtually no plot, the whole thing is just a build up for the grand dance finale. Discotheque dancing is traded for Broadway show style musical numbers and it's not an improvement.

April 16
16. Atacan Las Brujas (1968) Mexican wrestler Santo vs sexy witches in miniskirts!

April 17
17. Game of Death (1978) Bruce Lee's last film released long after his death with the aid of a double who appears in most of the scenes. Just so-so. Only of interest for the movie's end where the real Lee appears in a fight with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

April 18
18. Deep Throat* (1972) Classic 70's porn - no need to say more.
19. Six Pack (1982) Kenny Rogers as a down on his luck race car driver who runs into a group of orphans that steal his car's parts. He later befriends them and they become his pit crew which calls his "Six Pack". Fun movie with a very young Diane Lane and and even younger Anthony Michael Hall.

April 19
20. Almost Hollywood* (1994) A B-movie about B-movies. Playboy Playmate India Allen stars and produces this direct to DVD movie about the sordid behind the scenes goings-on of the softcore (or "erotic thriller", as the characters like to say) industry. There's also a murder plot, but it's so boring as to be incidental. The real interesting parts are when the characters talk about how they feel about making low budget trash. Most of it is very tongue in cheek but there's some good stuff there. Sadly, Miss Allen's fantastic breasts are only seen nude in a very brief scene.

April 20
21. Debbie Does Dallas (1978) More classic porn from the 70's. This one's A lot more entertaining than Deep Throat.
22. Corvette Summer (1978) Fresh from Star Wars, Mark Hamill did this movie about a high schooler who builds a souped up Corvette in auto shop. The 'Vette gets stolen and trying to recover it is the main plot of the movie. Along the way he meets up with a prostitute (Annie Potts) driving a custom van who gives him a ride to Vegas where he believes the car is. The title of the movie is a bit misleading since the Corvette in question gets very little screen time but still, an entertaining movie.

April 21
23. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970) A cult classic if there ever was one. I'd like to go on record in saying that Cynthia Myers' breasts are reason enough to see this movie.
24. The Lost Continent (1968) Very unusual Seven Arts/Hammer Films production about a group of people aboard a cargo ship that get stranded in a sea of deadly seaweed. The first hour is rather drawn out with the story focusing on the passengers with shady pasts and a cargo full of deadly explosives that will go off if they get wet. Then things take a turn for the weird as they encounter a lost commune of people descendant from Spanish explorers who are ruled by a mad child-king. There's also giant creatures and the aforementioned deadly seaweed that kills and eats anyone entangled by it. The buxom Dana Gillespie, who we would later ogle at in The People that Time Forgot, stars as one of the oppressed people of the commune.

April 23
25. Taboo (1980) The Queen of all MILF's, Kay Parker, stars in this incestuous tale of motherly love.


April 24-25 - Nothing, I've just been too busy with work.

April 26
26. Fast Getaway* (1991) I saw this movie because it stars 80's martial arts star Cynthia Rothrock and Marcia Strassman (Mrs. Kotter), but both are totally wasted in this bland Corey Haim vehicle about a teenager and his dad who are bank robbers. Pointless car chases and Cory Haim's "acting" makes this one almost unwatchable. Don't say I didn't warn you

April 27
27. The Woman* (2011) Whoa! This one was a LOT better than expected. One of the better horror movies of recent years.

April 28
28. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970) Seen again for this challenge, but this time with commentary by writer Roger Ebert.

April 29
29. Mesa of Lost Women* (1953) Sexy girls evolved from spiders - or something like that. Entertaining.

April 30 - Nothing

Personal goal 31
(ratings are on a scale of 5)

1. March 31: American Grindhouse 2010, NR, Netflix Streaming
Decent doc about the growth of grindhouse films. I love John Landis and any chance to hear him talk about schlock cinema is a good time. this is a great starting point for anyone that needs to brush up on the basics of the challenge.

2. April 1: Zeta One 1969, R, Netflix Streaming
UK 70's sploitation with lots of boobs but ultimately remains boring. beautiful aliens need new beautiful women to repopulate their planet, kidnapping ensues. opening strip poker scene drags on for ever.

3. April 1: Barbarella 1968, NR, Netfliz Streaming
psychedelic space trash. this is some bizarre stuff, stingray drawn sleds mechanical children and sex machines. you really can't go wrong.

4. April 2: The Human Tornado AKA: Dolemite 2 1976, R, Netflix Streaming
"Goddamn! Torture Chamers. I aint heard shit like that in years"
this only exists to make Dolemite look like the Citizen Kane of Blaxploitation movies. nonsensical, erratic mess of edits and concert footage of terrible stand-up, shitty kung-fu and overdubbing masterwork. favorite scenes include: hallucinatory avante garde sex nightmare of blackmen rising out of toy boxes and flexing there muscles towards a girl in a nightgown. Quickly followed up by a sex scene that literally destroys a house. i'm not making this up. it is going to be hard to erase a naked Rudy Ray Moore from my memory.

5. April 3: Switchblade Sisters 1975, R, Netflix Streaming
"So easy to kill, So hard to love"
i liked this. the struggle for the control of a girl gang. don't mess with these chics. there are good knife fights, obviously, and a great juvanile detention fight. there is also a great sublot involving the one eyed second in command of the jezebels vying for the affections of the gang leader.

Red, Bloody Red = First Time Viewing


Starting The William Castle Film Collection
1. 13 Frightened Girls - An American diplomat's teenage daughter plays spy. It almost seems like a 60's era live action Disney film with the preposterous plot, the jaunty musical soundtrack and the camp/comedy bits. The William Castle gimmick for this film seems kind of tacked on and doesn't directly interact with the movie: a card, when moistened, may or may not reveal the word Danger. If you get a Danger card, you get to claim a prize from the theater. Maybe some theaters didn't want to mess with the gimmicks and this made it optional.

2. 13 Ghosts - Could this be the first occurrence of the "inherited haunted mansion" cliche? The Castle gimmick for this one is Illusion-O, a card with red and blue filters which would make the ghosts "appear" or disappear. Actually, the ghosts can be seen without any filter, but the red filter does make them more visible. The thing that kept nagging me was that the parents of the family were easily in their 50's, but they had a 20-ish daughter and a 10 year old son. Features Mark Milner and Margaret Hamilton as a "witchy" housekeeper.

3. Homicidal - "This is the Fright Break!" - a 45 second countdown clock that allowed movie patrons to leave near the climax of the film. At first, audiences exploited this gimmick by staying for a second screening and leaving during that one. Castle responded by requiring different color tickets for each showing and adding the "Coward's Corner", where the patron had to wait until after the film finished and the rest of the audience filed by. This film really shows Castle's desire to be an American Hitchcock, with several emulations from Psycho. Kudos to Castle though, for having the secret hiding in plain sight.

4. Strait-Jacket - No cheap gimmicks with this one, but it does have the draw power of (fading) star Joan Crawford. Interesting extras on this DVD, detailing the control that Crawford had on this movie and the parallels between the movie's story and Joan's own personal story. Before They Were Famous sighting for an non-credited Lee Majors and an early cinematic appearance of George Kennedy.

5. Dr. Who and the Daleks, 6. Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 AD - The Daleks are obviously the draw of these two adaptions of the Doctor Who TV series.

7. Spine Tingler: The William Castle Story

8. The Day The Sky Exploded

First time viewing*

April 1st

1. *They Shoot Divas Don't They(2002)-Lifetime Film-TV- Jennifer Beals, David Bowe, Traci Lords. Wow, if you would've told me the First movie I'd watch for this challenge would be a Lifetime flick co-starring Weird Al's sidekick from UHF, I would've said "your crazy" but it was an entertaining enough flick and Jennifer Beals is still sexy as hell. 2/5

2. *Room 237(2012) On Demand- Very interesting documentary on the various hidden messages in The Shining. It made me really want to see the Shining again and I really want to see it in a theater where they play the film forwards and backwards at the same time. 3.5/5

April 2nd

3. Deadbeat At Dawn(1988)-dvd-Jim VanBebber, Marc Pittman. I love this flick, it has amazing 80's gang fashion, a cool Carpenter like score, Nunchucks, and some damned good stunts. 4/5

4. The Manson Family(2003)-dvd-Jim VanBebber, Marc Pittman, Leslie Orr. I thought the work print version of Charlie's Family was much better than the released version. 3/5.

5. The VanBebber Family(2003)-dvd-Jim VanBebber, Andy Kopp, Marc Pittman. It's incredible that not only did VanBebber finish The Manson Family but that it also played in theaters. 4/5

April 3rd

6. Something Weird Extra Weird DVD Sampler(2002)-DVD- What a great way to sell your product. I used to love going to Borders Books and checking out what new Something Weird DVD's they'd gotten in. Favorite trailers: Fat Black Pussycat, Bad Girls Go To Hell, Kiss Me Quick!, The Child, Pigkeeper's Daughter. 5/5

7. The Child(1977)-DVD-Rosalie Cole, Frank Janson, P: Harry Novak- Not a bad little horror film. Kind of slow at times, but it has a unique atmosphere and some unexpected gore. Would be a perfect film to revisit for the Halloween Horror Challenge. 2.5/5

8. Freaked(1993)-DVD- Alex Winter, William Sadler, Randy Quaid- Huge fan of Alex Winter and Tom Stern, I wish they'd work more. Loved the Idiot Box on MTV and I love this flick. I'm looking forward to watching with the Directors' Commentary. 3.5/5

April 4th

9. From Dusk Till Dawn(1996) TV- George Clooney, Havey Keitel, Cheech Marin. I remember when this movie was coming out, everyone was so excited, QT is making a horror film! It's gonna change the genre, FOREVER! Sadly, that didn't happen, what was made, was an enjoyable flick, that's perfect late night watching after you've had a few beers and just wanna lay on the couch and be entertained. 2.5/5

10. Evil Dead(1981) DVD-Bruce Campbell. What really needs to be said? Getting ready for the remake, I remember watching this on Up All Night. It scared me half to death. One of my favorites. 4/5

11. Evil Dead II(1987) DVD-Bruce Campbell. Fun, fun movie, I hope the remake is at least entertaining. 4/5.

12. Army Of Darkness(1992) DVD-Bruce Campbell. I saw this during it's original release back in the day. I was in Jr. high, my date and I skipped school and took a Bus to get to the theater. We had a great time and I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Army Of Darkness. 4/5

April 5th- All Roger Corman films in honor of his Birthday.

13. Born To Kill AKA Cockfighter(1974) VHS-Warren Oates, Harry Dean Stanton, Millie Perkins. How can you not love a movie with this tagline, "He came into town with his cock in hand, and what he did with it was illegal in 49 states." Warren Oates gives an extraordinary performance. I'm still kicking myself for not picking up the OOP Anchor Bay DVD. 4/5

14. Death Race 2000(1975) DVD-David Carradine, Sylvester Stallone, Martin Kove. Fun, fun film. Every time I watch it, I'm always entertained. RIP Paul Bartel. 5/5

15. Hollywood Boulevard(1976) DVD-Dick Miller, Candice Rialson, Mary Woronov, Paul Bartel. Another film I've watched dozens of times, and each time I'm always entertained. 4/5

16. Corman's World(2011) DVD- Even though I enjoyed this Documentary, I thought it could've been much longer. It seemed to skip over some vital areas of Corman's film history. 3/5

April 6th

17. Frakenhooker(1990) DVD-James Lorinz, Louise Lasser. Big fan of Frank Henenlotter. With his performance in this and Street Trash it's a shame James Lorinz doesn't work more often. Didn't like this film as much as Basket Case or Brain Damage but it was still an awful lot of fun. 3/5

18. Brain Damage(1987) DVD-Rick Herbst. It was great to finally see an uncut version of this film. I remember, reading about all the cut scenes in Gorezone back in the day. Fun little film. 3.5/5

19. Basket Case(1981) DVD-Kevin Van Hentenryck, Beverly Bonner. One of my faves, the effects may be crude, but it just adds to the enjoyment of the film. 4/5.

April 7th- Troma day!

20. Terror Firmer(1999) DVD-Will Keenan, Trent Haaga, Debbie Rochan. Oh man, it may be stupid as shit, but I love Terror Firmer. 4/5

21. Making of Terror Firmer(1999) DVD- Note to self, never work on a Troma film. 4/5

22.Citizen Toxie: Toxic Avenger IV(2000)-DVD- Very much like T.F. it's stupid as hell but I laughed my ass off. 3.5/5

23. Apocalypse Soon: Making of Citizen Toxie(2000)-DVD- I think I like the documentaries more than the films themselves. 4/5

24. Combat Shock(1986)-DVD- Rick Giovinazzo- One of my all time favorite films. I'm very much looking forward to Buddy's new film A Night of Nightmares. 5/5

April 8th-It's all about the Trolls

25.Troll(1985) DVD-Michael Moriarty, Sonny Bono, Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I'm not sure why everyone kneels down to Troll II. I enjoyed Troll much more, I almost died laughing when Moriarty lip synched Summertime Blues! 3/5

26. Troll II(1991)-DVD-George Hardy. Don't get me wrong, Troll II is damned entertaining. I just enjoyed the First Troll more. 2.5/5

27. Best Worst Movie-DVD-George Hardy, Claudio Fragasso. I thought this was a tad overrated. I was really turned off when George was shitting on the Horror Convention and the people at the convention. 2.5/5.

April 9th

28. *Evil Dead(2013) Theater-Lou Taylor Pucci, Jane Levy. Oh man, I'm not sure how "good" this film is, but it scared the shit out of my GF. We've seen just about every horror film, released into theaters the last few years. I've never seen her so scared. It was an amazing theater experience, that I'll never forget. 3.5/5.

29. *I Can See You(2008)-DVD-Benjamin Dickinson, Duncan Skiles. Not a bad little horror film. Loved the very slow burn and the music. Not a classic by any means, but I enjoyed it and wouldn't mind watching it again. 3/5.

April 10th-Something Weird Madness!!

30. Night Of the Bloody Apes(1969)-DVD- I can't believe how amazing the picture looks on this DVD. The colors really pop, this film has Female wrestling, gorillas, open-heart surgery, A crappy-looking monster, and gratuitous nudity. A true trash classic. 4/5

31. Curious Dr. Humpp(1967)-DVD- "Sex Dominates the world and now I dominate sex!" I love this very strange sexpolation classic. 4/5

32. Blood Freak(1972)-DVD-Steve Hawkes. If your going to watch any Something Weird dvd, I recommend this ahem, "turkey". I can't really do justice to everything that's going on in this film. Do yourself a favor, if you don't watch it, for the challenge. Check it out, on Thanksgiving next year. 5/5

33. Carnival Of Blood(1972)-DVD-Burt Young. Great footage of the Boardwalk way back when. Also, an early performance from the great Burt Young. 3/5.

April 11th

34. *Wild Angels(1966)-DVD- Peter Fonda, Bruce Dern, Nancy Sinatra. Wasn't my favorite biker film, but it was enjoyable. Anything with Bruce Dern is worth watching. 2.5/5

35. Danger: Diabolik(1968)-DVD-John Phillip Law, Marisa Mell. I fucking love this movie! The soundtrack and costumes are wonderful. 4/5

36. *The Killing Of America(1981) DVD- Damn, this was very good and surprisingly timely documentary about violence in America. It's very sad, 30 years later and it seems not much has changed. Highly recommended. 4/5

April 12th-Mariana Hill double feature!

37. The Baby(1973)-DVD-Mariana Hill, Ruth Roman, David Manzy as BABY- Strange, strange film. If you haven't checked out this slice of 70's weirdness. I encourage you to do so. 3.5/5

38. Messiah Of Evil(1973)-DVD- Mariana Hill, Royal Dano. Very Lovercraftian, a young women drives to a seaside town to discover the reason for her father's developing madness. It's kind of slow in parts, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. And I always enjoy seeing Mariana Hill! 3.5/5

April 13th-Ti West Triple Feature!

39. The Roost(2005)-DVD- Tom Noonan. Fun little killer bat film, loved the wraparound segments with the highly talented Tom Noonan. Felt a little too long, but I had fun with it. 3/5.

40. House of the Devil(2009)-DVD-Tom Noonan, Mary Woronov, Dee Wallace. Oh man, I love this flick. As you may have noticed from my post above, I'm a huge Tom Noonan fan, ever since Manhunter. He and Mary Woronov are excellent, as is the whole cast. Would make a great double feature with Kill List. 4/5

41. The Innkeepers(2011)-DVD- Sara Paxton, Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis. Another film I really enjoy, a classic old fashioned haunted hotel film. I thought Sara Paxton was adorable and I could easily relate to the Pat Healy character. 3.5/5

April 14th More Ti West Madness!

42. VHS(2012)-DVD- Adam Wingard, Joe Swanberg, Enjoyed all of the segments, my faves being: STRANGE THING THAT HAPPENED TO EMILY and AMATEUR NIGHT. 3.5/5.

43. The ABC's Of Death(2012)-Burned DVD- Lee Hardcastle, Dallas Malloy. Very hit or miss film, but I enjoyed most of the segments. My faves being: D is for Dogfight, L is for Libido,P Is for Pressure, X Is for XXL, and Y Is for Youngbuck. 3/5

April 15th Sleaze Fest

44. Last House of the Left(1972)-DVD-David Hess, Martin Kove, Fred Lincoln. Started off the evening with Last House. Even after 40 years this film still packs quite the punch. David Hess and Fred Lincoln were didn't seem to be acting. 4/5

45. Maniac(1980)-DVD-Joe Spinell, Caroline Munro. Amazing special effects from Tom Savini. And a whacked out, sweaty performance from Joe Spinell. 3/5.

46. Don't Go In the House(1980)-DVD- Dan Grimaldi, Bill Ricci. Sleazy as fuck, I really needed a shower after watching these last Three flicks. 3/5

April 16th-MST-3000 fest!

47. MST-3000: Manos: Hands of Fate(1998)-VHS- I needed something light after the sleaze fest. MST-3000 is perfect! I couldn't imagine watching Manos without funny commentary. 4/5.

48. MST-3000:Brain That Wouldn't Die(1996)-VHS- Now this film on the other hand, I've enjoyed with or without the commentary. It really is a true oddity. 4/5.

49. MST-3000: The Movie(1995)-VHS- I remember watching this, in an empty theater way back when. It was funny as hell then and remains so. 4/5.

April 17th- It's all about the Chainsaw.

50. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre(1974)-DVD- Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns, Jim Siedow. What can you say about this classic film? It's easily one of my favorite films of all time. 5/5

51. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre II(1986)-DVD- Dennis Hopper, Caroline Williams, Bill Moseley. Huge fan of this underrated film. Tremendous comedic performances from Bill Moseley and Jim Siedow. 4/5

52.*The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: A Family Portrait, Revisited(2000)-DVD- Tremendous documentary on the making of TCM. Highly recommended. 4/5


April 18th

53. The Hills Have Eyes(1977)-DVD- Michael Berryman, Robert Houston. Damn, much like Last House on the Left this little film holds up incredibly well. 4/5

54. Vigilante(1982)-DVD- Robert Forster, Fred Williamson, Joe Spinell. What a great tag line "The best law firm in America is Smith & Wesson". Great little film, with a great cast of character actors. 3.5/5

April 19th- Vincent Price madness!

55. The Abominable Dr. Phibes(1971)-DVD- Vincent Price, Joseph Cotten, Hugh Griffith, I had completely forgotten that Joseph Cotten was in this classic. Fun film, great sets, great music and a great performance from the great Vincent Price. 4/5

56. Dr. Phibes Rises Again(1972)- Vincent Price, Robert Quarry, Peter Cushing Fun sequel, didn't enjoy it as much as the original, but I was definitely entertained. 3/5

57. The Tingler(1959)- Vincent Price, Judith Evelyn. Wonderfully surreal horror classic from William Castle. Love it and could watch it over and over. 4/5

April 20th- Celebrating John Waters' Birthday a little early! Perfect for 4/20

58. Female Trouble-(1974)- Divine, David Lochary, Mink Stole. My all time favorite Waters' film. So deranged, so perfect. 5/5

59. Pink Flamingos-(1972)- Divine, Mink Stole, Mary Vivian Pierce. Enjoyed this film, but I always thought it was overrated. I enjoy Desperate Living and Female Trouble much more. Funny story, when I was 16, I was trying to find and watch all of Waters' early films. Now, this is before the internet, luckily I had about 7 Mom and Pop video stores within a half hours drive, I had found all of them except Pink Flamingos. One day, my friend said there was a video store about an hour away that had a copy of Pink Flamingos. So, I drove out into the middle of Bumfuck, WV in search of this mythical Video Store. I find it and it's one of those Drug Stores/Video Stores. I desperately search the Videos for PF, I didn't see it, I ask the clerk if they had Pink Flamingos, she said, "why yes, they are in aisle 7" I desperately dash to aisle 7, and what do I find? Actual Pink Flamingos for the lawn, they didn't have the film, but the trip wasn't a complete loss. They did have Eating Rauol and Death Race 2000, two films I'd been looking for. Sometimes, I miss those days of driving all around to various Video Stores and not knowing what you'd find.

April 21st-More Waters's goodness

60. Desperate Living(1977)- Mary Vivian Pierce, Mink Stole, Liz Renay. So many great lines, one of the greatest beginnings in trash cinema history. 4/5

61. Polyester(1981)- Divine, Tab Hunter, Edith Massey. Everyone seems to hate this film. I really enjoy it, it's not Female Trouble or Desperate Living, but that's okay. 4/5

April 24th

*62. Lords Of Salem(2012)-R-Theater, Sherri Moon Zombie, Ken Foree, Meg Foster, Dee Wallace. Wow, can't believe I watched this in a chain movie theater. It was something, could have done without the King Diamond lookalike, but the final 15 minutes was bonkers. Also, loved the soundtrack. 3/5.

I'm new to the forum and this is my first time doing this exact challenge.

My goal is to get atleast 50, my record in a monthly challenge so far is 56.
I also want to watch atleast 25 films that I haven't seen.

*First time viewing
Mar 31st
1. Alice Goodbody*- (Code Red Dvd)- This is a funny parody of the movie business where a girl named Alice tries to bed her way up through the industry.
2. Death by Invitation*- (Vinegar Syndrome) I really don't see what Vinegar Syndrome sees in this film, had good atmosphere but it was pretty dull and boring.
3. Help Me... I'm Possessed*- (Code Red Dvd) A fun regional flick shot in Texas where a crazed doctor lives in a castle which is a mental institution and performs experiments on his patients to try to rid them of evil.

Apr 1st
4. Chainsaw Sally*- (NETFLIX)- Really low budget flick shot on digital video where a meek librarian transforms herself into a chainsaw wielding maniac at night. Not sure why this one is so well known, its pretty crappy all around.
5. Superchick*- (Amazon Instant)- A blonde bombshell disguised as a mild mannered stewardess travels acround the US where she has three different men that she sees. Was expecting more with this one, but it was still quite watchable.

2nd
6. Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer*- (NETFLIX Instant) Finally got around to seeing this, it wasn't nearly as disturbing as I thought I had heard but I really enjoyed it. Michael Rooker is amazing in it and it was a real shock to see a skinny Tom Towles.
7. Demon Witch Child*- (Code Red Dvd) This is a Spanish Exorcist rip off directed by Amando De Ossorio(Tombs of the Blind Dead) and I really enjoyed it. Seeing the young girl Susan that is possessed say the profane things that she said really cracked me up, not to mention the dubbing was the worst for her character which made it even funnier.

3rd
8. Eaten Alive- (Dark Sky Dvd) I love killer croc movies and this is probably my favorite even though the croc isn't featured alot and it looks pretty fake.
9. Mark of the Witch*- (NETFLIX) This movie didn't start off too badly but man did it go downhill fast, a total borefest.

4th
10. Strip Nude For Your Killer- (Blue Underground Blu-Ray) Over the years this has become one of my favorite giallos.

5th and 6th was at a wedding all weekend so I wasn't able to watch anything.

7th
11. Contamination- (Blue Underground ) A fun semi Alien rip off by Luigi Cozzi starring Ian McCulloch, does this guy have bad luck when he travels or what?
12. Bobbie Jo and The Outlaw*- (NETFLIX Instant) A AIP drive in version of Bonnie and Clyde starring Lynda Carter, how can you go wrong with that combo?

8th
13. Swinging Sorority*- (Code Red Dvd) Somewhere between softcore and hardcore porno where sorority girls screw football players and a plot doesn't exist.
14. Machete Maidens Unleashed- (NETFLIX Instant) A great documentary on Filipino exploitation films by Mark Hartley.

9th
None

10th
15. The Suckers*- (Vinegar Syndrome) This is a drive-in sexploitation version of The Most Dangerous Game. There is a whole lot of softcore sex and not much hunting going on but I still found it enjoyable.
16. Massage Parlor Murders*- (Vinegar Syndrome) Really dug this movie, although its really low budget it has everything one can hope for in an exploitation film: naked women, blood, a car chase, and wacky humor.
17. Sweet Sixteen*- (NETFLIX) The first half of this was pretty dull but somehow I really got into this the second half. Really wished the kills were better and there was more blood although I liked the ending.

11th
18. The House of Insane Women*- (Code Red Dvd) Was pretty bored by this movie, every time the tension started to build and it seemed to be getting good it just stopped and went back to being pretty boring.

12th
19. Horror High*- (Code Red Dvd) I have been waiting to see this movie for years and finally got a copy and really enjoyed it. It's basically a drive in version of Jekyll and Hyde set in a high school.
20. Hot Moves*- (Code Red Dvd) This was like an 80s version of American Pie where a group of friends makes a pact to all lose their virginity. It was pretty enjoyable and had some great laughs.

13th
21. Private Resort- (Sony dvd) This movie is an absolute riot. I can't believe Rob Morrow (this is his film debut) got higher billing in this movie than Johnny Depp. This was Johnny Depp's second film and came out a year after A Nightmare on Elm Street. Look for a really young Michael Bowen as the long blonde haired hotel staff member that is always hitting on the waitress Rob Morrow's character likes. Andrew Dice Clay is in this as well and gets a credit as "Andrew Clay." I came up with a drinking game for this movie that will probably send you to the hospital haha, here goes: Take a drink anytime Rob Morrow smiles, anytime there's a chase scene (and take another drink around every 30 seconds until its over), anytime Andrew Dice Clay slaps or hits anyone, anytime Hector Elizondo says "diamond," "barber," or fires a gun. (Before they were famous count 2)
22. The Night of 1000 Cats*- (Code Red Dvd) This was a pretty out there movie with a really short running time of 63 minutes. Hugo Stiglitz stars as Hugo a millionaire that lives in an old monastery/castle and collects human heads and has a pit of the most cats I've ever seen in one location. He flys his helicopter around town and looks for more women that he can romance and add their heads to his collection. Very strange but quite enjoyable and it goes pretty fast given the short runtime.
23. Blood Sisters*- (Shriek Show) This was part of the bloody school girls triple feature set that I basically just got so I could see Girls Nite Out aka The Scaremaker, so I wasn't really expecting much from the two other films. I thought this had a good title but still wasn't expecting much, until I see that Roberta Findlay directed it. Then I get excited and immediately my expectations go up and they were definitely not met at all. This movie was pretty damn boring, there was quite a bit of t 'n' a but that is really the only pro of this film.

14th
24. The Fifth Cord- (Blue Underground ) Franco Nero stars as an alcoholic reporter investigating a series of murders, the photography in this is absolutely brilliant and Franco Nero gives his A game as always.
25. Translyvania 6-5000*- (Amazon Instant) Jeff Goldblum and Ed Begley Jr. are reporters that go to Translyvania to find Frankenstein. This started out with nothing but laughs and then sort of went downhill. It was still a good movie with quite a bit of laughs, but it dragged a little in some parts.
26. Mandinga*- (VHS rip from a friend) This is an Italian film that capitalizes on the success of Mandingo. Although I haven't seen Mandingo I know it has to do with slavery just like this film. This is a pretty good drama and I don't think there are many Italian movies out there like this.
27. The Love Garden*- (Vinegar Syndrome) A writer falls in love with his lesbian neighbor and tries to win her over. I really enjoyed this one.

15th
None

16th
28. John Dies at the End- (Magnet) This is one of the most out there movies I have ever seen. It is such a fun movie and only Don Coscarelli could make it like this.
29. American Scary*- (NETFLIX Instant) This is a documentary that focuses on the tv horror hosts. It was pretty interesting but I wish they spent more time on Elvira and Joe Bob Briggs.

17th
30. Mardi Gras Massacre*- (Code Red Dvd) Really sleazy low budget 70s movie about a crazy rich guy who likes to sacrifice the most "evil" prostitutes he can find to an Aztec god. I have been wanting to see this for a long time now, after reading some negative reviews I had my expectations set pretty low but I really liked this.
31. Wild Malibu Weekend*- (Code Red Dvd) A bunch of hot women in bikinis compete to win 10 grand and a movie role in a tv show contest. Lots of t 'n' a and mindless fun.
32. Creep Van*- (NETFLIX Instant) A pretty cheesy movie but still worth a watch.

18th
33. Messiah of Evil*- (Code Red Dvd) Not really sure what to think about this one, I didn't really like it and on the other hand I didn't dislike it. It had some great scenes that seemed like nightmares I've had but there was a lot of padding in between them. I will have to watch this one again and hopefully I will really like it when I do.

19th
34. Drive (Blu Ray)- I'm putting this as my first wild card just to be on the safe side, although it can be argued that it counts due to its violence and exploitation film influences.

20th
35. Sugar Hill* (NETFLIX Instant)- This movie was so much fun, I loved the look of the zombies (the silver eyes were a nice touch) and needless to say Sugar was smokin.
36. Dagmar's Hot Pants, Inc.* (NETFLIX Instant)- A lot of skin in this one and quite a few laughs.
37. Number One With A Bullet* (NETFLIX Instant)- Always great seeing Robert Carradine in a starring role, after seeing this I was wishing that he made a slew of vigilante films in the 80s.
38. The Lords of Salem* (Theater)- I really enjoyed this movie, it is definitely a movie to see in theaters. However there were quite a few things that bugged me about the film.

21st
None

22nd
39. The Demon* (VCI)- A horror/thriller about a killer that hates beautiful women and goes around killing them. Pretty light on the blood/gore quotient and not enough Cameron Mitchell screen time, but still pretty good.

23rd
40. Dust Devil* (NETFLIX Instant)- Great movie by the amazing Richard Stanley. He said he got the idea for it when in South Africa and heard about a vicious serial killer and also after watching a triple feature of western movies on acid. I've been wanting to see this for years and hopefully someday I'll get to see the director's cut.
41. The Evil* (Shout! Factory)- Pretty good haunted house movie, was cool to see Robert Viharo (Bare Knuckles) it in even if his part was kind of small.

24th
42. Don't Go in the Woods...Alone*- (Code Red Dvd) aka Don't Watch this Movie... At all.

25th
43. Screwballs- (Severin Blu-Ray) Roger Corman's answer to Porky's, a non-stop laugh fest.

26th
44. Joshua Tree*- (Shout! Factory Blu-Ray) great action flick starring Dolph Lundgren, directed by stuntman Vic Armstrong.
45. Fight For Your Life- (Blue Underground ) classic 70s exploitation movie that pits a trio of convicts against a black family. They don't make em like this anymore.
46. Confessions*- (Vinegar Syndrome) this is an adult film from the golden era of 70s adult films directed by Anthony Spinelli about a woman that is unhappy with her marriage and decides to seek out other men.
47. From Dusk Til Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money- (NETFLIX Instant) When I first saw this I watched it right after the original From Dusk Til Dawn and was pretty disappointed. After a second viewing I really enjoyed it and forgot why I was so underwhelmed, Robert Patrick was amazing and it has all the crazy laughs and camera angles that I love from Scott Spiegel films.

27th
48. Surf II- (VHS rip)- great slice of cheezy 80s comedy that features a young Eric Stolz before he was famous.

28th
49. Black Samson*- (Warner Brothers) Really cool 70s blaxploitation with Rockne Tarkington as the title character, the always impressive William Smith co-stars. My favorite part was that Samson had a real pet lion that would hang out in his bar.
50. Rituals- (Code Red Dvd) The first time I saw this it was chopped into 10 parts on youtube, I'm so glad I got a copy of this and was able to see it straight through. This movie is a real gem.

29th
51. The Vampire Lovers*- (Shout! Factory Blu-Ray) There is really no loving going on in this movie, just light foreplay but it still had a lot of atmosphere and was thoroughly enjoyable.

30th
52. Manborg*- (Dark Sky) This was a pretty impressive movie for the tiny budget it was made on, I never really grew up on cheap sci-fi movies so I didn't really catch many references. I love the Astron-6 guys and they were all great in this especially Conor Sweeney who takes on an Australian accent haha and Adam Brooks is always steals the scene when he shows up. It was a nice treat to see a trailer for Bio-Cop after the credits which looks beyond ridiculously awesome and I really hope it gets made.
53. Cannibal Ferox- (Grindhouse Releasing) I decided to finish with one of my all time favorites.


I beat my goal of 25 first time viewing with 39 first time viewings and beat my total goal by 3.

The worst first time viewings I watched were Death By Invitation and House of Insane Women.

My favorite first timers were Massage Parlor Murders, Mardi Gras Massacre, Black Samson, Sugar Hill and The Vampire Lovers (in no particular order).

I had a great time doing this challenge and will hopefully do one again in the next few months.
