* = first time viewing
DVD unless otherwise noted


April 1
01. Santo vs. the Zombies (1962) VHS
Dubbed version. Santo battles a hooded scientist who uses radio controlled zombies as henchmen. Early Santo film is pretty standard stuff. The fights with the zombies are bland and repetitive but there are some good sets including the caves which lead to the wonderfully cheesy laboratory hideout. 5/10
02. The Muthers (1976)*
Directed by Cirio H. Santiago. Two female pirates search for the leader's sister who is being held as a slave in a coffee plantation. Basically a women in prison in the jungle movie but kind of a tame one. Quite of bit of stupidity in the plot with frequent flashes of bad acting but the women look good and the action is OK with some fun seagoing scenes. Entertaining but unremarkable. 5/10

April 2
03. Neutron vs. the Death Robots (1962) VHS
Dubbed version. Neutron, the Atomic Superman, once again battles the evil Dr. Caronte who managed to survive the explosion of a neutron bomb. Mexican masked wrestler movie with no wrestling. Neutron has no special powers but looks good and flexes well. Lively and fun. 6/10
04. The Cut-Throats (1969)*
Directed by John Hayes. Near the end of WW2 six GIs go on a mission to supposedly steal German war plans from a country club taken over by Nazis. Mix of very unconvincing war footage alternating with slightly steamy soft core sex scenes with a touch of Nazisploitation. Laughed out loud several times and it turned out the movie kind of had a point. Trashy and entertaining. 4.5/10

April 3
05. Half Human (1958) VHS
Directed by Ishiro Honda, Kenneth G. Crane. John Carradine narrates footage from a 1955 Japanese movie about an abominable snowman type creature living in Japan. He is also featured in American shot scenes where he tells more of his tale to other actors. The American scenes are kind of dull but the original Japanese film looks pretty interesting. 4.5/10
06. The Manster (1959)* Streaming
Directed by George Breakston, Kenneth G. Crane. A Japanese scientist studying evolution injects an enzyme he developed into an unconscious American journalist resulting in a horrible transformation. Very good 50's monster movie filmed in English in Japan. Lead Peter Dyneley does a fine job and although the monster makeup isn't always convincing it works well in a few scenes and other makeup effects are satisfying. 7/10

April 4
07. Bone (1972)* (The Larry Cohen Collection)
Directed by Larry Cohen. A black man invades the home of a dysfunctional Beverly Hill couple and in a short time all three lives change dramatically. Dark satire with a strong script and good acting. I often find movie satires and social commentaries to be too heavy handed but this one worked well for me, humorous at times and always absorbing. 6.5/10

April 5
08. Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987)* (Bullets, Bombs and Babes: The Films of Andy Sidaris)
Directed by Andy Sidaris. American agents, hunky guys and Playboy Playmates of the month, take on diamond and drug smugglers in Hawaii. Nice scenery, lots of toplessness and fun action makes for an entertaining mix. 6/10
09. Girl in Gold Boots (1968)*
Directed by Ted V. Mikels. A waitress from the middle of nowhere heads to LA with a petty crook and a gentle drifter to fulfill her dream of becoming a professional go-go dancer. Drama follows. OK story with lots of OK songs and some OK go-go dancing. The acting of course is not the best. A few chuckles. 5/10

April 6
10. Straight Shooter (1939) VHS
Directed by Sam Newfield. Tim McCoy is a government agent sent to recover a half million dollars of federal bonds in this Sam Katzman production. McCoy is a low key but solid B-western hero. 5/10
11. Roll on Texas Moon (1946)* (Roan Group Roy Rogers Collection 1)
Directed by William Whitney. Roy and Dale are on opposite sides in an escalating cattleman vs. sheep ranchers dispute. Music and comedy to action ratio is a little high for my taste but when it occurs, the action is up to the usual Republic standards. 5.5/10
12. I Spit on Your Corpse aka Girls For Rent (1974)*
Directed by Al Adamson. After being tricked into killing one of her best clients, a hooker goes on the run pursued by two female assassins who leave a trail of bodies in their wake. Starts a little slow with a somewhat contrived setup but once things click it's an entertaining low budget chase picture. 5/10

April 7
13. Dick Tracy (1945)* (VCI Dick Tracy RKO Classic Collection)
Directed by William Berke. Tracy is after a slasher, Splitface, who who seems to be on a random killing spree. High quality, noirish B starts out strong but the resolution is standard fare. Morgan Conway is good as Tracy and the film tries to keep to the spirit of the comic strip. 6/10
14. I Spit on Your Corpse commentary Samuel M. Sherman*
Rambling but interesting commentary covers many aspects of the film including the origins, the actors, production, and some legal issues that followed release. Also some insight into making movies for the drive-in circuit.
15. Dangerous Youth (1957)* Streaming
Directed by Herbert Wilcox. Singer Frankie Vaughan plays the leader of a small gang of JDs who is drafted and ends up getting on the wrong side of both offices and some of his fellow soldiers. Weak British film is missing around 18 minutes on Prime. At least one song is cut as are scenes which explain why he gets into so much trouble in the Army. 4/10

April 8
16. Run Angel Run (1969)*
Directed by Jack Starrett. A biker (William Smith) reveals all the secrets of his gang to a magazine for $10,000 and soon all the biker gangs west of the Rockies are on the lookout with orders to waste him. Slightly different biker movie has a strong love story component which leads to a long slow stretch in the middle of the movie consisting of lover's spats, romantic interludes, and sheep farming. Even the inevitable confrontation is a bit of a letdown. 4.5/10
17. The Thrill Killers (1964)*
Directed by Ray Dennis Steckler. Three murderous escapees from a mental institution and a serial killer from out of state terrorize the area in and around Los Angeles. The beginning seemed to border on the incompetent but I soon got into it and enjoyed the low budget action and violence. 6/10

April 9
18. God's Bloody Acre (1975)*
Directed by Harry E. Kerwin. Three backwoods brothers, tired of being forced to move by encroaching civilization, go on a rampage after accidentally killing a construction worker. The setup is a little awkward but there are some slightly strange moments and a pretty exciting second half. Sometimes lame acting doesn't detract. 6/10
19. Tomcats (1977)*
Directed by Harry E. Kerwin. After a gang of rapists and murderers get off on a technicality, the brother of one the victims takes the law into his own hands. OK movie but the lead just doesn't have the screen presence to be a convincing vigilante. 5/10

April 10
20. Black Caesar (1973)
Directed by Larry Cohen. A Harlem street kid rises through the ranks and becomes the first black mobster recognized by the Mafia. Rise and fall story similar to old Warner Brothers gangster movies but with a more modern perspective. 7/10
21. The St. Valentine's Day Massacre (1967)* Blu-Ray
Directed by Roger Corman. Documentary like story of Al Capon's trap to get Bugs Moran in 1920's Chicago. Well done with some name stars and narration by the great Paul Frees. Had a little trouble keeping track of who was who but still very absorbing. 6.5/10

April 11
22. Hi-Riders (1978)* (VCI Greydon Clark Drive-In Double Feature)
Directed by Greydon Clark. A street racer/ biker gang gets into trouble in a small town after several locals die in an accident during a drag race. Interesting reversal of expectations where the gang are quirky but not that bad while some of the locals are real SOBs. 6/10
23. The Bad Bunch aka Tom (1973)* (VCI Greydon Clark Drive-In Double Feature)
Directed by Greydon Clark. Clark also stars as a white Vietnam vet who brings an unfinished letter to the father of a black buddy who was killed in the war but is immediately hated by the radical younger bother of his friend. Shot in Watts and other LA locations. Heavy handed at times with its message but still entertaining. Helped by a couple of topless scenes featuring Bambi Allen. 6/10

April 12
24. Bloodfist V: Human Target (1994)*
Directed by Jeff Yonis. Don "The Dragon" Wilson plays a man who wakes up in a hospital with no memory and finds himself pursued by murderous thugs. Good entry in the series has a nice plot twist but perhaps goes on one fight too long. 5.5/10
25. The Return (1980)*
Directed by Greydon Clark. A man and two children are zapped by a UFO in a small town and years later the aliens return and bring the three together for some reason. Well known stars add some luster but the plot is kind of a mess. Martin Landau is fun as a quirky marshal. Special effects are mostly weird lights although the UFO does have a vague structure. A light dagger is used for mutilations. 4.5/10

April 13
26. Stage to Blue River (1951)* (Warner Archive Collection Monogram Cowboy Collection Volume 2)
Directed by Lewis Collins. Whip Wilson plays a US Marshal who prevents a stage coach company from being taken over by crooks. Good movie with minimal plot but lots of action. Wilson looks good as the hero and doesn't overuse his whip. 6/10
27. Bandit Ranger (1942)* (Warner Archive Collection Tim Holt Western Classics Collection Volume 1)
Directed by Lesley Selander. Tim is a rancher accused of murder and rustling by a fake Texas Ranger. Standard B-western stuff with some good action. 5/10

April 14
28. Dick Tracy vs. Cueball (1946)* (VCI Dick Tracy RKO Classic Collection)
Directed by Gordon M. Douglas. Tracy searches for some missing diamonds and also the murderous baldheaded Cueball who likes to strangle his victims. Solid crime movie which gives even more of a nod to the quirkiness of the comic strip. I appreciate Morgan Conway's Tracy even more and wish he had stayed with the series. 6.5/10
29. Dynamite Shaolin Heroes (1977)* (Mill Creek Iron Fist Frenzy 50 Movies)
Directed by Godfrey Ho. A secret group dedicated to restoring the Ming Dynasty to power comes under attack but is protected by a strong martial artist known as "Lotus Man". Pretty good. The plot makes sense even with some complications but the fights begin to seem the same after a while. Filmed in South Korea with mostly Korean actors. Image: Good. 5/10
30. Shaolin Invincible Guys aka Shaolin Deadly Hands (1977)* (Mill Creek Iron Fist Frenzy 50 Movies)
Directed by Raymond Lui. A pickpocket and a country boy, both with excellent king fu, are hired by a security company and become involved in a plot to steal twelve huge pearls. More interesting story than above and more interesting and varied fights including a very exciting final battle. Made in Taiwan. Image: Good to Fair. 6/10

April 15
31. Ozploitation Trailer Explosion (2014)* (Intervision)
First half about 82 minutes.
32. Wonder Women (1973)* Blu-Ray
Directed by Robert O'Neil. A female scientist develops a formula to safely transplant any organ and uses her army of beautiful women to obtain raw material. Shot in the Philippines this starts out strong but bogs down a little in some overly long chase scenes. Still Vic Daiz, Sid Haig, a super cheesy laboratory, and of course the women keep it fairly entertaining. 4.5/10
33. Sweet Sugar (1972)* Blu-Ray
Directed by Michel Levesque. Sugar, a hooker with an attitude, is set up for a drug bust and cops a plea to work two years on a sugar plantation instead of waiting years for a trial. Standard women in prison plot but with less brutality than some and a little comic relief. Sadistic Dr. John and his bizarre experiments and a fast moving story help a lot. 6/10

April 16
34. Ozploitation Trailer Explosion (2014)* (Intervision)
Second half about 82 minutes.
35. Hell Up in Harlem (1973)
Directed by Larry Cohen. Sequel to Black Caesar continues the story of Tommy Gibbs as he regains his power in Harlem. More action, a wilder plot, and more fun than BC. I liked this one at least as much and maybe just a little more. 7/10
36. The Man With Two Heads (1972)* Blu-Ray
Directed by Andy Milligan. Jekyll/Hyde story although the evil one is called Danny and not Hyde. Surprisingly OK. Dennis De Marne as Jekyll/Danny does a decent job but the movie can't really escape its low budget. 4/10

April 17
37. The Naked Bunyip (1970)* (Oz-Ploitation Boxset Vol. 1 R4)
Directed by John B. Murray. Long documentary on sexual attitudes in Australia including sex in advertising and art, abortion, homosexuality, and prostitution. Interesting and the occasional comedy bits that pop up are not bad. The over two hour length was a bit daunting but turned out not to be a problem. 5/10
38. The Naughty Stewardesses (1974)* (Blazing Stewardesses Two-Disc 30th Anniversary Edition)
Directed by Al Adamson. The sexual adventures of four stewardesses and what happens when they get involved with a horny old man. The movie took a dark turn that I didn't expect and turned out to be quite entertaining. The acting, especially from the lead actress, is pretty bad but the pacing is good. 5.5/10

April 18
39. Cavegirl (1985)* (Mill Creek Too Cool For School Collection)
Directed by David Oliver. A nerdy (and kind of old looking) high school student is somehow sent back in time and hooks up with a really cute cave girl (Cindy Ann Thompson). I expected to hate this but it turned out to be a pleasant time waster. I got a couple of laughs out of it and Cindy Ann Thompson kept my attention. 5/10
40. Coach (1978)* (Mill Creek Too Cool For School Collection)
Directed by Bud Townsend. A female Olympic star is hired to coach a losing high school basketball team and faces the expected problems. Just OK, the best part is looking at Cathy Lee Crosby. A couple of plot points would be roundly condemned in today's climate such as her relationship with one of the players. 4.5/10
41. Harlequin (1980)* (Oz-Ploitation Boxset Vol. 1 R4)
Directed by Simon Wincer. A politician's young son is cured of cancer by a seeming faith healer who insinuates himself into the family. Well made supernatural thriller doesn't have any scares and some effects are just awful but the story is interesting and it is well acted. 6/10

April 19
42. Operation Warzone (1988)* Streaming
Directed by David A. Prior. During the Vietnam War, the remnants of an American patrol find themselves in the middle of a covert operation and can't be sure who they can trust. Twisty plot doesn't make much sense even after all is revealed and the plentiful action gets a little samey after a while but still a reasonably entertaining low budget action movie. 4.5/10
43. Godmonster of Indian Flats (1973)* Streaming
Directed by Fredric Hobbs. A scientist raises a prehistoric mutated sheep while the nearby town of Comstock is facing a power struggle about mining rights. It's hard to describe the strangeness of this film which is actually fairly well paced and not at all a chore to watch. 4.5/10
44. Womaneater (1958)* Streaming
Directed by Charles Sanders. A scientist brings a tentacled tree back from the jungles of South America which consumes young women and then produced a chemical which can revive the dead. British film is very slow at times and never scary but the monster looks good in a cheesy kind of way and the climax is kind of exciting. 4/10

April 20
45. Where the North Begins (1947)* (VCI Royal Canadian Mounted Police 4 Movie Collection)
Directed by Howard Bretherton. Two mounties track down a gang who is trading liquor for furs with Indians. OK but nothing special. 5/10
46. Night Raiders (1952)* (Warner Archive Collection Monogram Cowboy Collection Volume 2)
Directed by Howard P. Bretherton. Two marshals are called in to investigate a series of nighttime raids on buildings where nothing seems to be taken. Not a lot of action but an interesting mystery situation. Something a little bit different. 5.5/10
47. Super High Me (2007)* Streaming
Directed by Michael Blieden. Documentary about stand up comic and admitted pothead Doug Benson who first doesn't smoke or drink for 30 days and then gets stoned from dawn to dusk for the next thirty days while continuing his gigs and undergoing a series of tests. Some funny bits from the stand up clips. I got more laughs out of the stuff when he was not smoking than when he was. 6/10

April 21
48. Dick Tracy's Dilemma (1947)* (VCI Dick Tracy RKO Classic Collection)
Directed by John Rawlins. Ralph Byrd returns to the Dick Tracy role as the detective faces off against a thug known as The Claw who is responsible for a fur theft. Always nice to see Byrd in action but this is only and average entry in the series. 5/10
49. The Cavalier aka Dancing Kung Fu (1978)* (Mill Creek Iron Fist Frenzy 50 Movies)
Directed by Joseph Kuo. Two brothers, working to overthrow the Ching Dynasty, are chased by the Ching forces and an old man and his granddaughter who want one of the brothers to marry the girl. Decent fights in the beginning and a good free for all at the end but the middle drags, especially some long boring scenes in a brothel. The story is all over the place with new characters popping up all the time. Image: Good. 4.5/10
50. Battle for the Lost Planet aka Galaxy (1986)* Streaming
Directed by Brett Piper. A man returns from space five years after an alien attack on Earth and discovers that he has the secret to destroy the invaders. The stop motion effects are crude although there is one good monster design. I usually enjoy low budget SF but this failed to click with me. 4/10

April 22
51. Hunk (1987)* (Mill Creek Too Cool For School Collection)
Directed by Lawrence Bassoff. A computer nerd makes a deal with the devil so he can become a rich yuppie hunk. Bland comedy with some nice looking bodies of both sexes and not too many laughs. The acting is OK for the most part but there are a few annoying characters. 4.5/10
52. It's Alive (1974)
Directed by Larry Cohen. Police pursue a mutant killer baby while it's parents try to deal with the situation. Great movie has good acting, a very effective score, and an intelligent script. The way Cohen only gives us glimpses of the baby is terrifying. 8/10

April 23
53. 18 Shaolin Riders aka 18 Swirling Riders (1977)* (Mill Creek Iron Fist Frenzy 50 Movies)
Directed by Lin Fu-Ti. A Robin Hood type group of thieves confront an evil martial arts master who obtains some super weapons. Not whole bunch of action, the fights aren't that good, and a very confusing plot. Image: Fair 3.5/10

April 24
54. The Human Tornado (1976)* Blu-Ray
Directed by Cliff Roquemore. Dolemite is back and goes to LA to escape a murder charge and while there helps a friend whose club has been closed by the mob. OK, I got a few chuckles from the funk fu that Dolemite uses and also from the general silliness. 5/10

April 25
55. The Sin Syndicate (1965)* (SWV A Sinful Triple Feature)
Directed by Michael Findlay. The stories of how four women became zero girls or hookers for the mob. Lots of skin, dubbing that has no relation to lip movements, a failed attempt at artiness, and stock footage of the Cuban Revolution and WW2 as part of the backstory of two of the girls. Bad but watchable. 4/10
56. Sin Magazine (1965)* (SWV A Sinful Triple Feature)
Directed by Al Mitchel. An unstable writer, a horndog photographer, and an obsessed businessman, all brothers, publish a sex magazine out of a house in the country. Not bad, especially compared to the other two films on this disk. The acting is awful and there isn't much nudity but the story is kind of interesting. 5/10
57. She Came on the Bus (1969)* (SWV A Sinful Triple Feature)
Directed by Harry Vincent. Five JDs invade a home and abuse two women, then they hijack a bus and abuse two more women, then they go back the the house, then they get on the bus again. The End. Some nasty scenes in this awful film but the rest is just plain boring. No dialog, only narration. Lots of nudity. 3/10

April 26
58. It Lives Again (1978)
Directed by Larry Cohen. The story of the mutant babies continues as factions form, some wanting to destroy them and some wanting to protect them. Good movie but not as consistently tense as the first. It's interesting how Cohen the different attitudes people have. 7/10
59. Blastfighter (1984)* Blu-Ray
Directed by Lamberto Bava. After being released from prison a former big city cop tries to find peace in rural Georgia where he grew up but instead runs into trouble from red neck poachers and their friends. Solid action flick basically predictable but with some variation on the revenge theme. 6/10

April 27
60. The Trusted Outlaw (1937)* (VCI Bob Steele Classic Western Collection)
Directed by Robert N. Bradbury. Steele plays the son of an outlaw who returns to the town were he grew up and finds both trouble and a chance to prove he's an honest man. A few little twists and some good action (mostly hard riding) keep things moving. 5.5/10
61. The Last Gun (1964)* (Mill Creek Spaghetti Western Double Feature) Blu-Ray
Directed by Sergio Bergonzelli. A brutal outlaw and his gang dominate a small town while waiting for a gold shipment. The sheriff is powerless but a mysterious masked rider helps out. There are some over the top characters and some brutal action but it all feels kind of bland. 5/10
62. 4 Dollars of Revenge (1966)* (Mill Creek Spaghetti Western Double Feature) Blu-Ray
Directed by Jamie Jesus Balcazar. A former cavalry officer, framed for treason, escapes from prison and tries to find out who framed him and take revenge on them. straightforward stuff without much quirkiness but there are some great outdoor locations and an entertaining story. 5.5/10
63. Horrors of Spider Island aka It's Hot in Paradise (1960)* (SWV)
Directed by Fritz Bottger. After a plane crash a manager and several dancers that he hired find an uncharted island where the manager is bit by a large spider and turns into a blood thirsty killer while the girls frolic around in various states of undress. The man-monster mask is OK but the oversized spider is almost cute. There is way more cheesecake than monster action but there were enough laughs to keep me entertained. 4/10

April 28
64. Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome (1947)* (VCI Dick Tracy RKO Classic Collection)
Directed by John Rawlins. A brutal gangster takes over a gang who is planning on using a new paralyzing gas to commit a bank robbery. Karloff plays Gruesome and is always a joy to see and hear. There is more action in this one and a bit more comedy. Not bad but not my favorite movie in the series. 5.5/10
65. Footsteps in the Night (1957)* (Warner Archive Collection Bill Elliott Detective Mysteries)
Directed by Jean Yarbrough. A gambling addict is hunted for the murder of his neighbor when the man is found dead in his apartment. Last of these Bill Elliot detective films is as entertaining as the others even if the solution to the crime is a little far fetched. 6/10
66. Kelly of the Secret Service (1936)* (Sinister Cinema Poverty Row Studio Collection Victory Pictures Vol. 1)
Directed by Bob Hill. A secret service agent investigates the theft of plans for a new remote controlled bomb. There's a lot of sneaking around and too many comedy spots by two dim guards. Agent Kelly isn't too bright himself but there is hypnosis, the lab scenes are adequate as is our one look at the bomb in action. 4.5/10
67. Shadow of Chinatown (1936)* (Sinister Cinema Poverty Row Studio Collection Victory Pictures Vol. 1)
Directed by Bob Hill. Feature version of serial with Bela Lugosi playing a madman who is hired to destroy certain Chinese merchants but has his own evil plans. Has the usual problems of plot jumps and and a general choppy feeling. Also it doesn't seem that the serial was all that good. 4/10
68. Bloodsuckers from Outer Space (1984)* Blu-Ray
Directed by Glen Coburn. An invisible force from space takes over people after getting rid of all their blood and then they must suck blood from others to survive. Competently made Ok horror comedy got a few laughs out of me and had some clever touches along with some annoying performances. 5/10

April 29
69. Fire Monsters Against the Son of Hercules (1962)* (Sinister Cinema)
Directed by Guido Malatesta. During the Ice Age Maxus (aka Maciste) helps the Sun people in their battle with the evil cave dwelling Moon Tribe and also fights several cheesy looking monsters. OK but featured too many mass battles and not enough amazing feats of strength. Also Reg Lewis just looked downright odd with his weird hair style.4.5/10
70. Mutant War (1988)* Streaming
Directed by Brett Piper. Sequel to Battle for the Lost Planet has our hero battling mutants who are kidnapping young women for breeding purposes. Marginally better than the first film, the stop motion animation is smoother and there is a bit more of it but still not enough. A lame fifth rate gang doesn't help and Cameron Mitchell looks like a stuffed sausage in his silly suit. 4.5/10

April 30
71. It's Alive III: Island of the Alive (1987)
Directed by Larry Cohen. After an impassioned plea from one of the fathers, a judge orders that the five existing mutant babies be moved to a secret location where they can live out their lives. An intelligent script and lots of suspense make this very enjoyable. 7.5/10
72. Beyond the Seventh Door (1987)*
Directed by B.D. Benedikt. Upon being released from prison an thief talks his former girlfriend into helping with a heist at the mansion where she works but instead of alarms they run into a series of traps. Tension is not always as high as I think it could have been but some of the traps are pretty good. Nice twist at the end. 5/10
73. Biohazard: The Alien Force (1994)*
Directed by Steve Latshaw. A monster created by genetic manipulation goes around killing everyone who donated tissue samples to the project that created it. Then it wants to get laid. Starts out pretty strong and the monster looks good but we see it too often. Movie becomes just a series of similar monster kills and bad acting. 4.0/10
74. Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn (1983)* Blu-Ray
Directed by Charles Band. A ranger is out to stop a powerful madman who is trying to incite the mutant Cyclopians to go to war. Standard post Mad Max world but a twist is added by the use of magic by the bad guy Jared-Syn. Actually pretty good but the climax is disappointing and obviously a setup for a sequel that never happened. 6/10
75. Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1992)* (Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume 6)
Joel and the bots take on Teenagers From Outer Space from 1959 and directed by Tom Graeff. Episode 404. Bad movie but some decent riffing.

Re: LIST THREAD 10th Annual Drive-in/Exploitation/B-movie Challenge.(April 1-30, 2019)

1TV=First Time Viewing
Spoiler:
(Pre-challenge)
1. Joe Bob's Last Drive-In (C.H.U.D.)
2. Joe Bob's Last Drive-In (Castle Freak)
(1TV) 3. Hellhole (1985)-Got off to a nice start, I must say! Then again, any movie that has a nekkid shower catfight will be gold no matter what! (Roku-Free Grindhouse movies tonight)
(1TV)4. The Girls of Thunder Strip (1970)-It took nearly an hour for me to figure out what the main plot was. Inept and uneven, but it's got some so-bad-it's-good charm here & there. (Prime)
(1TV)5. Bloody Friday (1973)-German crime flick that keeps you interested thanks to it's energy. Now it's time to seek out the restored version. (Roku-Grindhouse Connection)
(1TV)6. Within The Rock (1996)-Sci Fi dud that I knew was gonna suck. At least I got something like this quickly out of the way. (DVD)
(1TV)7. Bad, Black and Beautiful (1975)-As with Girls/Thunder Strip, lots of incompetence to behold here as well Yet it's still impossible for me to hate on something so badly made. (Epix(1TV)8. Dragon Against Vampire (1985)-It’s straightforward, compared to other Godfrey Ho films, but I was expecting much more zaniness and more Kung fu. Only the funny bickering between Master and pupil prevents this from being a total bore. (YouTube)
(1TV)9. Dr. Jekyll and Mistress Hyde (2003)-Aside from often being on the pretentious side, I'm really starting to like these early Seduction Cinema releases. Before things got TOO goofy with the parodies. (CP(1TV)10. The Huns (1960)-I'm making Chelo Alonso one of my "Stars of the month" and chose this sword/sandal flick with her. This felt very long, but it has a lot more bloodshed than you're used to seeing from this type of film from that era. It was also nice to see Alonso in a big, leading role. (Prime)
(1TV)11. Firehouse (1987)-I guess the only notable thing about this (Mostly) unfunny T&A comedy is it's Julia Roberts film debut. Too bad I didn't spot her. (Epix(1TV)12. How To Kill A Judge (1975)-Good plot, but too long and talky (Which is what I feared) (DVD)
(1TV)13. The House of Lost Dolls (1974)-Spy film mixed with roughie White Slavery sequences. It doesn't flow quite well, but I still had fun with this. I just loved (In the English dub) how all the henchmen sounded like Pro-Wrestlers. (CPU
Spoiler:






















(1TV)14. Truckin' Man (1975)-Saw this under the title of "Trucker's Woman" (Which was meant to sell a few more tickets) This isn't too bad. I got a kick out of Truckin' Man's fight choreography. (Prime)
(1TV)15. Big Tits Zombie (2010)-Yet another movie that went through a different title (Original was "Blue Dragon" or something) Aside from a few cute kills, this didn't do a whole lot for me. (DVD)
(1TV)16. Mated (1952)-Mostly standard early Sex-Ed film. It’s huge (Nude) photo gallery is what sets it apart from the rest. (CPU)
(1TV)17. Invasion of the Star Creatures (1962)-Painful spoof to get through. The film becomes tolerable only when the Star Babes appear onscreen. (Epix)
(1TV)18. Devil In The Flesh (1998)-Odd, lame ending. But I seemed to love everything else! (DVD)
(1TV)19. Teenage Gang Debs (1966)-Well, I always thought this was a harmless girl-Gang movie, instead it’s more like a predecessor to The Roughies. But don’t let that get your hopes up. This could have used about 40 minutes of editing. (YouTube)
(1TV)20. Boy, What a Girl! (1947)-Probably one of the more unique Race films you're likely to see thanks to one of the actors being in drag for the entire movie! (youtube)
(1TV)21. Crime Boss (1972)-Ok Italian mob/action flick. It gets better towards the end. (DVD)
(1TV)22. Promises! Promises! (1963)-Best known as Jayne Mansfield's nudie film. A little more cutesy than expected. (Prime)
(1TV)23. Redneck (1973)-Telly Savalas (Dubbed, no less) as a redneck who terrorizes Italy with Franco Nero as his partner? An odd one for sure, but I did like the originality it seemed to bring. (DVD)
24. Joe Bob’s Last Drive-In/Q (Roku-Shudder)
25. Joe Bob’s Last Drive-In/Society (Roku-Shudder)
(1TV)26. 666 The Beast (2007)-Suuucked. Only one part towards the end prevented me from quickly forgetting this. (Roku-Tubi)
(1TV)27. Exterminators of the Year 3000 (1983)-It peaks early, but this blatant Road Warrior-ripoff just had so much lovable cheese in it. (Roku-Shout!)
(1TV)28. Beyond Bengal (1930)-Sort Of a Mondo-Adventure in the jungle. I know animals were harmed during the making, but I’m not too sure if humans were as well! They did a good job faking, if so. (Epix)
(1TV)29. Shadowzone (1990)-Very Little happens. At least seeing Louise Fletcher and James Hong together was cool. (DVD)
(1TV)30. L.A. Bounty (1989)-Sybill Danning looking good & kicking ass. Too bad that everything else occurs around her drags. (CPU)
(1TV)31. Night of the Serpent (1969)-Refreshing spaghetti western that plays out more like a murder mystery. (Prime)
(1TV)32. The Survivalist (2015)-Wasn't sure if this would count, but it's a Shout Factory release. Somewhat of a good companion piece to another gritty Apocalyptic flic, THE ROAD.(DVD)
(1TV)33. Bamboo House of Dolls (1973) It took me forever to finally get a hold of this one. Very much worth the wait! (CPU)
(1TV)34. London in the Raw (1964)-A little too much song & dance for my tastes. (Epix)

(1TV)35. Cop Killers (1973)-I've never heard of any positive things concerning this one so I've always avoided it. Shame on me for doing so because I had some fun with this! (Roku-Cinema Epoch)
(1TV)36. Let’s Do it! (1982) (YouTube)

Present and Reporting for Duty

Total Watches- 46 | Blu Ray- 43 | DVD- 2 | Streaming- 1 |

First Time Watches *** 39

April 1st, 2019

1. The Blood Stained Butterfly (1971) -
Giallo whose story-line is played via a court proceeding. The wrap up ending is a bit over the top. 6/10. Blu Ray ***

2. Battle for the Lost Planet (1986) - micro budget independent film by brett piper. Post apocalyptic tale that overstays its welcome at 100 minutes. 4/10 Blu Ray ***

3. The Man With 2 Heads (1972) - Low budget schlock take on the Dr. Jekyll story. Bad camera work , horrible editing. Only bright spot was Denis DeMarne. Denis DeMarne gave a good performance as the doctor. 4/10 Blu Ray ***

4. Spontaneous Combustion (1990) - Tobe Hooper warning of the danger of nuclear technology is lifted up considerably by Brad Dourif's presence in an otherwise run of the mill film. 6.5/10 Blu Ray ***

April 2nd

5.The Tale of the Dean's Wife (1970)
- softcore nudie cutie with no plot and not alot of dialogue, but alot of tits. 4/10 Blu Ray ***

6. The Velvet Trap (1968) - 60s nudie cutie that at 75 minutes is too long. lots of tease, no payoff. 5/10 Blu Ray ***

7. Hot Nights on the Campus (1966) - Nudie Cutie tale of a blonde that has two boyfriends at the same time. mildly entertaining. 5.5/10 Blu Ray ***

8. Vampire's Kiss (1988) - Nicolas Cage tour de force portrayal as a business executive turned crazed vampire. 7.5/10 Blu Ray ***

April 3rd

9. High Spirits (1988)
- Lots of future stars in this haunted castle comedy. Another horror comedy that misses the mark. 6/10 Blu Ray ***

10. Marcy (1969) - Painfully slow and the musical score will test ur patience like no other. 3/10 Blu Ray ***

April 4th

11. Sex and the College Girl (1964)

April 5th - No Watches

April 6th

15. SuperVan (1977)
- solar powered van that looks like a cheap AMC pacer. Kind of a smoky and the bandit rip off. 5.5/10 Blu Ray ***

16. Mama's Dirty Girls (1974) - Mama and her sexy daughters troll men for their money. Good story, decent acting. 6/10 Blu Ray ***

17. Piranha, Piranha (1972) - Piranha? What Piranha? One hour in of this drama we finally get a small bit of Piranha, which amounts to an underwater bubble machine. Only redeeming feature of this one is William Smith. 5/10 Blu Ray ***

April 7th

19. Steel Arena (1973)
- 70s car crash derby film. Short on story, but a fun watch. 6/10 Blu Ray ***

20. Critters (1986) - Decent, but not as entertaining as Gremlins. Little fur balls with teeth terrorize a small town. Critters appears to made as a cash in to the popularity of Gremlins. 6/10 Blu Ray ***

April 8th

21. Critters 2 (1988)
- Little fur balls with teeth were left on earth from the first film. mayhem ensues. Same basic plot as first film.6/10 Blu Ray ***

22. It's Alive (1974) - A 70's drive in classic from larry cohen that always entertains. I first saw the film at the drive in with my parents and i still remember the impact the hospital scene had on me. this film is loaded with iconic set pieces and great acting. 8/10 Blu Ray

23. It Lives Again (1978) - A more than decent follow-up to the first film with a compelling story, good acting and better special effects.7.5/10 Blu Ray

April 9th

April 10th

27. The Fifth Floor (1978)
- Supposedly based on a true story. A young disco dancing woman is committed to a psychiatric facility by mistake and terrorized by Bo Hopkins.7/10 Blu Ray ***

- Tepid SyFy shark tail. Stephen Baldwin sleep walks through this one. 3/10 DVD ***

30. Mary, Mary, Bloody Mary (1975) - interesting grindhouse 70's vampire flick with John Delorean's wife and John Carradine as her father. A bit slow in places, but overall a good film. 6.5/10 Blu Ray ***

April 12th

31. Teenage Tramp (1973) - Alisha Fontaine stars as a young teen runaway who returns to disrupt here older sister's relationship. Fun, sleazy 70s film. 6.5/10 Blu Ray ***

32. Screams of a Winter Night (1979) - Rare anthology flick from 1979. I watched the 114 minute director's cut. A real chore to sit through. The hype on this film is not justified. 5.5/10 Blu Ray ***

April 13th

33. Brides of Blood (1968)
- A classic hemisphere philippines shlock horror film with a great story and good acting. I have a huge soft spot for these films. 7.5/10 Blu Ray

34. Terror is a Man (1959) - Excellent Philippine version of the Island of Dr. Moreau story with Francis Lederer. Recommended. 7.5/10 Blu Ray

35. The Black Gestapo (1975) - Awesome "Blacksploitation" flick from the wonderful 1970s. Vigilante mobs fight with a group of Black Nazis. Wild fun. 7.5/10 Blu Ray ***

April 14th - No Watches

April 15th

36. The Blood Drinkers (1964)
- A forgotten hemisphere pictures classic vampire film. Very effective use of tinting and great story. 7.5/10 Blu Ray. ***

37. Cruisin High (1976) - High School hooligans fight with a rival gang. overstays its welcome at 100 minutes. 5/10 Blu Ray ***

April 16 and 17

38. Mad Doctor of Blood Island (1969)
- The second of the Hemisphere Blood Island trilogy and arguably the best. Another variant of the Island of Dr. Moreau story. A mad doctor creates green chloropyll monsters. 8/10 Blu Ray

39. Beast of Blood (1970) - Third and final in the Blood Island Trilogy. This film is a direct sequel to the second film and picks up where the last film ended. More of an action adventure film then a horror film, but still entertaining. 6/10 Blu Ray

April 18th

40. Torture Dungeon (1970)
- A Tower of London story that is not much better than watching a high school costume play. Painfully boring watch. 2/10 Blu Ray ***

41. Shakma (1990) - A computer game turns bad when a baboon attacks the players. Baboon scenes were good, but the film falls apart with alot of filler scenes of actors creeping down corridors. Way too long at 100 minutes. 5/10 Blu Ray ***

April 19th

42.The Great Alligator (1979)
- Italian "Jaws" ripoff with a large alligator terrorizing a resort. Not one of Sergio Martino's better efforts. 5/10 Blu Ray ***

43. Wacko (1982) - listened to the commentary track which was very good. 6/10 Blu Ray ***

April 20th

44. Forced Entry (1975) -
serial rapist film with Tanya Roberts. Ron Max did a good job as the crazy mechanic rapist. 6.5/10 Blu Ray ***

45. The Devil's Nightmare (1971) - Perhaps Erika Blanc's best performance. She plays a Succubus that kills a group of people staying at her family's castle. Creepy and effective. 7.5/10 Blu Ray ***

46. The Meg (2018) - I love shark movies, even the SyFy cgi ones. Starring Jason Stathem, who I really enjoy, this film about a Megladon is silly and has alot of CGI, but still a fun one time watch. 6.5/10 Streaming ***

Re: LIST THREAD 10th Annual Drive-in/Exploitation/B-movie Challenge.(April 1-30, 2019)

Title in BLACK = From my own personal DVD collection.
Title in RED = Seen on NETFLIX or other online streaming service.
Title in TAN = Seen on Youtube.
Title in BLUE = Seen in movie theater during current run.
Title in GREEN = Seen on TV during normal programming.

APRIL 1

1. Mortal Kombat (USA / 1995) Street Fighter had come a year before so this one follows the trend. A loose plot based around a tournament whose winner determines the fate of mankind. Decent action and fight scenes with the characters looking like their video game counterparts which is cool. Of note is the four-armed character, Goro who looks pretty damn impressive.
2. Solomon Kane (USA / 2009) Based on the pulp character created by Robert E. Howard (of Conan fame), Solomon Kane is a cursed loner who seeks redemption by battling demons. Tends more towards the horror than adventure but still entertaining.

APRIL 2
3. Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li (2009) Unlike the original movie with Jean-Claude Van Damme which had the characters looking like their video game counterparts, this one doesn't, much to the fans' chagrin. However, Kristen Kreuk is pretty good as Chun Li and is nice to look at.

APRIL 3
4. Shaolin Soccer (China / 2001) Totally over-the-top comedy about a group of disgraced Shao-Lin practitioners who use their skills to form a soccer team. Especially funny is the one that imitates Bruce Lee.

APRIL 4
5. Tai Chi Zero (China / 2012) Combining martial arts, steampunk and comedy, this movie is about a village that tries to stop a railway from destroying their town.

APRIL 5
6. Wild Hearts Can't be Broken (USA / 1991) Sentimental favorite of mine about a girl that tries horse-diving (literally riding a horse that dives off a platform into a pool of water) in the 1930's. Supposedly based on a true story. The lovely Gabrielle Anwar stars.

April 6
7. The Born Losers (USA/ 1967) Seen with commentary by Tom Laughlin and Delores Taylor. The first Billy Jack movie and maybe the best because it lacks the preaching that marred the sequels. A cast of amateur actors together with some professionals tell a story about bikers that kidnap and rape women. Reluctant hero, Billy Jack steps in to confront them. Tom Laughlin (Billy Jack) stars, directs and writes this movie as well as it's sequel, Billy Jack.

April 7
8. Billy Jack (USA / 1971) Seen with commentary by Tom Laughlin and Delores Taylor. What many remember as a martial arts movie with kick-ass action is anything but, as stated by actor/writer/director Tom Laughlin (Billy Jack) and his wife Delores Taylor who he tricked into starring as his leading lady. What this movie really is is a heavy-handed, holier-than-thou preachy flick about the rights of Native Americans. There are two - yes only two - fight scenes in this movie, one in the ice cream shop and another in the park which most people remember best as the "I'm gonna take this right foot and I'm gonna whop you in that side of your face" scene, which admittedly is iconic and pretty damn cool. But it's all downhill from there as we get endless improvised scenes that go nowhere and the aforementioned preaching.

April 8
9. Bermudas: Cueva de Tiburones AKA Cave of Sharks
(Mexico / 1978) Mexican hunk Andrés García stars as a diver hired to locate a downed plane in the Bermuda waters. Strange goings-on abound such as strange lights, hallucinations and sleeping sharks who seem to await someone's command. Swedish actress Janet Agren co-stars and boy is she hot! Worth the price of admission right there.

April 9
10. Triángulo Diabólico de las Bermudas AKA The Bermuda Triangle
(Mexico / 1978) Andrés García stars in two Bermuda Triangle movies in the same year, this time joined by Hugo Stiglitz and John Huston! Mexican director René Cardona Jr gets in on the Bermuda fad with this pretty decent film about a ship where strange occurrences during its voyage. A strange doll found adrift seems to be connected to the events but it's not clear how.

April 10
11. Chanoc en la Isla de los Muertos (Chanoc in the Island of the Dead)
(Mexico / 1977) Based on the Mexican comic book character Chanoc who is an adventurer and hero along with his trusty comic-relief sidekick, Tsekub. This time they get stranded on an island inhabited by cannibals, not much action, really but still good enough to watch.

April 11
12. Elephant Boy
(USA / 1937) Based on a Rudyard Kipling book (he of The Jungle Book) this jungle movie filmed in India is about a boy who is a crack elephant trainer.

April 12
13. El Complot Mongol
(Mexico / 2019) Crime story with bits of comedy and stylized to pay homage to hard-boiled thrillers. Very talky but still somewhat interesting.

April 13
14. Car Wash
(USA / 1976) A series of comedy situations loosely stringed together about a bunch of car wash workers. An excellent ensemble cast that each have their own funny moments. Richard Pryor cameos as a rich preacher.

April 14
15. A Deadly Vision
(USA / 1997) Kristin Davis stars as a psychic who has a link with a killer. Made for TV so it's low key.

Re: LIST THREAD 10th Annual Drive-in/Exploitation/B-movie Challenge.(April 1-30, 2019)

Mr. Cellophane's 2019 Drive-In / Exploitation / B-Movie
Challenge List




*= first time viewing
blue= personal BluRay
purple= personal DVD
green= streaming
orange= theatrical presentation
red= borrowed or rented BD/DVD

March 31st
01. Shao Lin da peng da shi (a.k.a. Return to the 36th Chamber) (dir. Chia-Liang Liu)*
1980 / Hong Kong / Cantonese with English subtitles / 99 minutes / Netflix / Marital Arts

In Which a young scoundrel travels to the Shaolin Temple in order to learn marital arts so he can protect the oppressed workers (one sporting horrible fake teeth) of his village and finds himself bumbling through a comedic training section. Enjoyable but a step down from the original film.

April 1st
02. Mr. Mean (dir. Fred Williamson)*
1977 / United States, Italy / 77 minutes / Blaxploitation

In Which Mr. Mean is hired to take out a sleazy Italian mobster with bad hair and finds himself in a confusing series of adventures exacerbated by bad acting, a small budget, and a beautiful Italian woman. Boring and not as thrilling as Williamson's earlier directorial efforts.

03. Gojira no gyakushű (a.k.a. Godzilla Raids Again) (dir. Motoyoshi Oda)
1955 / Japan / Japanese with English subtitles / 81 minutes / Kaiju

In Which scientists are replaced with pilots and existential crises are replaced with Anguirus, a monster that Godzilla must battle, which accounts for most of the amazing miniature work. Obviously not as thematically engaging as the first film, and I could have done without the escaped criminals plot line.

04. The Terror of the Tongs (dir. Anthony Bushell)*
1961 / United Kingdom / 76 minutes / Hammer Film

In Which a British sea captain stationed in Hong Kong swears revenge on the Tong syndicate after they murder his teenage daughter, and Christopher Lee dons yellowface to portray the stoic head of the Tongs. The film has a few gruesome murders that you'd expect from Hammer Films.

05. Crash! Che botte... strippo strappo stroppio (a.k.a. Supermen Against the Orient) (dir. Bitto Albertini)*
1973 / Italy, Hong Kong / English dub / 102 minutes / B-Movie TV (Roku) / Martial Arts

In Which a CIA agent teams up with two bumbling thieves and a martial arts master to... thwart someone's evil plan? or take down a gang? I'm sure they're doing something besides boring and confusing me. I was amused by the Italian filmmaker's vision of the American ambassador's American wife (mistress?), a money-hungry, blonde bimbo.

April 2nd
06. I Can Make You Love Me: The Stalking of Laura Black (dir. Michael Switzer)*
1993 / United States / with commercials / 104 minutes / YouTube / Made-for-TV Movie

In Which Richard Thomas becomes obsessed with coworker Brooke Shields and stalks her, aided by his position in the company, misogyny, and a ton of victim blaming. Honestly, this movie was terrifying, and the commercial bumps for local news coverage of multiple shootings didn't help.

07. Black Mama White Mama (dir. Eddie Romero)*
1973 / United States, Philippines / 87 minutes / Women in Prison

In Which two women, a revolutionary and a prostitute, escape from a brutal prison while chained together and are forced to work together to overcome the army, bandits, gangs, and Sid Haig's wardrobe. Fun movie! I watched the Arrow BD which looks awesome and includes several great interviews.

08. Cyborg 2087 (dir. Franklin Adreon)*
1966 / United States / 86 minutes / B-Movie Sci-Fi

In Which a cyborg travels from the future to kidnap a scientist and avert an apocalyptic future, throwing Everytown, U.S.A. into a tizzy. Pretty standard low-budget science fiction fare that recycles sets, props, and themes - including using an old West set for a showdown. I enjoy such things, but your mileage may vary.

April 3rd
09. Mary Higgins Clark's Before I Say Goodbye (dir. Michael Storey)*
2003 / United States / 90 minutes / YouTube / Made-for-TV Movie


10. The Beach Bum (dir. Harmony Korine)*
2019 / United States, Switzerland / 95 minutes / Stoner Movie

1959 / United States / 71 minutes / Film Noir


April 5th

2) The Proud and Damned (1972) - Five ex-Confederate soldiers end up somewhere in South America following the Civil War, and are asked to join the civil war starting there. Had high hopes for this one, because Chuck Connors and Cesar Romero were in it, but it took me three tries to get through it.
3) Crash! Che botte... strippo strappo stroppio (Supermen Against the Orient) (1973) [B-Movie TV]- Italian Super Hero flick mashed-up with a chop-socky movie, resulting in an unwatchable mess. Secret Agent doing spy-stuff joins with two idiots out to steal some money. Took nearly an hour to get to the bullet-proof red long johns.

4/2/19

7) The Sleep of Death (1980) [B-Movie TV] - Period piece set in France after Napoleon's exile. Not much going on in this one; just people in silly costumes, sitting around talking until it finally ended.

4/3/19

8) The Young Land (1959) - Dennis Hopper kills a man after provoking him into a gunfight and is arrested by sheriff Patrick Wayne and tried for murder. Nothing special, but I liked it.
9) Randy Rides Alone (1934) - John Wayne enters a bar and finds a few dead bodies littering the floor. The local sheriff shows up a few minutes later and arrests him for murder. Later, he escapes and goes looking for the real killers. Nothing extraordinary. Typical B oater -only notable for a clean-shaven Gabby Hayes playing the main bad guy.

4/4/19

10) Revenge of a Gunfighter (The Mercenary, Il mercenario) (1968) - Mercenary Franco Nero is hired to escort a shipment of silver from a mine in Mexico to the U.S., but when he gets to the mine, he finds that the miners have become "revolutionaries" and have taken over the mine.

The local bad guys and bounty hunter Klaus Kinski make it hard for him to quit.
14) The Star Packer (1934)- John Wayne becomes sheriff of a small town terrorized by a gang after the gang kills the old sheriff. Another flick with a clean-shaven Gabby Hayes playing a bad guy. I guess they weren't as rare as I had assumed.
15) Savage Encounter (1980) [B-Movie TV] - A man and his wife are in their isolated home at night somewhere in South Africa when two snaggletoothed hicks break in and beat and tie up the husband, then rape the wife. The next morning, they throw the husband into a canoe and go upstream a little ways, dragging the canoe behind their boat. The husband escapes and makes his way back to his house, grabs a shotgun, then goes hunting for the two hicks. That description makes the movie sound better than it was.

4/5/19

16) Little Moon & Jud McGraw (Gone with the West) (1974) - Aldo Ray's gang holds up a stagecoach driven by James Caan and steals some money. Caan goes to prison for some reason, then escapes and goes after the gangmembers. He hides out in the rocks near a small town where he joins up with Stefanie Powers and carries out an oddly labor-intensive revenge consisting of building three catapults to throw rocks at the buildings, and later, a large box kite he uses to drop dynamite on the town. Meanwhile, 'cause why not?, Sammy Davis Jr. skulks around, dressed in black leather, looking like he's about to break out in song or start dancing at any minute.
17) Lights of Old Santa Fe (1944) - Dale Evans owns a failing rodeo that Gabby Hayes runs for her. Roy Rogers is hired by their competitor, but quits after the guy says he only wants him to sing in the rodeo, and gets hired by Gabby, which drives the competitor to try to sabotage the show. Some pretty good trick riding in this, but that was quickly overshadowed by the insane, frantic chariot race (of all things) that popped up unexpectedly midway through the movie.
18) Bruce Lee: The Man, the Myth (1976) [B-Movie TV] - Bruce Lee biopic starring Bruce Li. Apparently Bruce Lee exercised a lot, when he wasn't being challenged to a fight by some random guy. I had seen this one before.
19) Grunt! The Wrestling Movie (1985) [B-Movie TV] - A movie about wrestling. I've never been a wrestling fan, and I had a tough time staying awake through this one.

4/6/19

4/7/19

22) Trinity and Sartana Are Coming (Trinitŕ e Sartana figli di...) (1972) - Two outlaws battle other crooks for gold. Nearly unwatchable. Took several tries to make it through this steaming pile.
23) She Came to the Valley (1979) - Dean Stockwell and his wife welcome drifter Scott Glenn into their home, then later move to south Texas, because of his stories about how nice it was, and open a general store. Soon after moving there, Glenn gets them involved in gun running for his buddy, Pancho Villa (Freddy Fender). Yeah, nothing else in the movie made any sense either.

4/8/19

24) Raiders of Old California (1957) - A marshall and a judge show up in California to investigate a gang (including Lee Van Cleef) who took possession of most of the land making up Califonia from a Mexican officer in excahnge for his life at the and of the Mexican-American war.

The gold is stolen, then buried, and several people (among them, a bounty hunter who calls himself the Stranger) go looking for it. I saw this one a few years ago, but didn't remember too much of it (other than the train robbery and Kookie bouncing around like Zorro to escape a half dozen gangsters), so it wasn't a total waste.
26) Dan Candy's Law (Alien Thunder) (1974) - Donald Sutherland and Kevin McCarthy are best friends who are Mounties who arrest an Indian for killing a cow. The Indian escapes and kills McCarthy, then Sutherland hunts him down, and before long it escalates into a small war.

41) The Dirty Mind of Young Sally (1973) [B-Movie TV] - Sally (Sharon Kelly) and Buck Flower run a pirate dirty radio station out of the back of a van in this Harry Novak Presentation, directed by Bethel Buckalew.

49) Ninja Fist of Fire (The Fist That Kills, Duo ming quan wang) (1972) - A young prince is kidnapped, and a swordswoman, an old guy, and a guy with a spear join together to get him back. Mostly swordplay in this one, which makes the "Fist" titles even stranger.

Then they go after the bad guy.

4/18/19

54) American Commando Ninja (1988) [B-Movie TV] - A ninja is sent to Taiwan to find and retrieve a germ warfare weapon created by a Japanese scientist during World War II. This movie's Day-Glo pallette was a little hard on the eyes.

63) Ninja in the Killing Fields (1984) [B-Movie TV] - Godfrey Ho Ninja movie about a guy infiltrating a gang of drug smuggling ninjas with help from a ninja named Stephen. I watched this thing twice, and it didn't make any more sense the second time through, so - typical Godfrey Ho ninja flick.

4/23/19

- A woman who had been in an asylum for twelve years following the murder of her father and step-mother is released and goes back to the family home. Her step-brother and her psychiatrist and his girlfriend show up at the house and there's lots of talking, plus a few people get killed.

4/24/19

66) Phii hua khaat (Headless Hero) (2002) [YouTube] - Thai comedy horror flick starts with three goofballs and their goofball "Master" in a graveyard, hoping to get a love potion from a freshly exhumed corpse, but the Master uses the wrong page of his spell book and resurrects all the corpses in the graveyard instead. They must've filmed this just to get a few zombie shots for the trailer, because those zombies don't show up again in the movie. Then a young stranger comes to town. He meets a girl, and has several fights with a rich kid loan shark who is harassing villagers. They compete in a buffalo race and a boxing match, then some crooks steal the head off a Buddha statue and some other stuff. The young stranger is decapitated by the rich kid, and his re-animated corpse (with detachable head) seeks revenge. Took way too long getting to the headless hero stuff.

4/25/19

67) Phii hua khaat 2 (Headless Hero 2) (2004) [YouTube] - Another goofy Thai horror comedy. This one starts with two grave robbers busting into a crypt. One guy steals a gold necklace from a corpse, waking up the corpse (which the movie shows us with a few seconds of film from the first movie was a minor character who was beheaded by the headless hero in the previous flick), who then chases the guy around the graveyard, surfing on a coffin lid. Then, cut to a boat race, which the re-animated corpse wins. Then a white haired wizard (I guess the same character who was in the first movie for a few minutes) stops the corpse and cuts off his head. Then the movie jumps ahead 25 years and we meet a bunch of goofy new characters. Two of them go to the graveyard to get a love potion from a corpse, and one of them frees a ghost who becomes his slave and helps him humiliate a romantic rival. After a while the headless corpse wakes up and looks for his head, then he finds it and becomes a vampire ghost, or something, and goes looking for his necklace. What a confusing mess. Took me several tries to make it through this one.
68) U.S. Catman - Lethal Track (1990) [B-Movie TV] - Two guys stop a heist and one gets scratched by a radioactive cat; causing him to gain super powers. He puts on a costume and fights an evil Priest/Spy/Master Criminal in this Godfrey Ho mash-up of new "Catman" footage with stuff from an older Thai (?) film (some stuff about a bald bad guy with an eye patch and a girl everyone thinks is a guy riding around on a motorcycle). I don't even think he tried to tie the films together this time. I fell asleep the first time through, and had to change the time on the Roku to catch it a second time to finish it.

4/26/19

69) Riot in the Streets (Riot) (1997) [B-Movie TV] - Showtime movie about various groups of people during L.A. riots starring Mario and Melvin Van Peebles, Mako, and Luke Perry.

70) U.S. Catman 2 - Boxer Blow (Catman in Boxer's Blow) (1993) - Godfrey Ho patchwork sequel. In the Thai part of the movie, a woman is after a "uranium starter," some guy escaped from prison, a bad guy wants him for a "mission," and everyone is fighting in almost every scene. In the new Ho part of the movie, Catman and his buddy are after the woman in the Thai film who's after the "uranium starter." They're barely in the movie, so their part doesn't really matter.

4/27/19

A banker comes by and offers the farmer a million dollars if the farmer will make his daughter marry the rich man's dim-witted son. I was hoping to see a dirty joke of a movie, but instead I got a PG movie with jokes about government bureaucracy , and how the U.S. government pays farmers not to plant crops, and how it would rather send aid to foreign countries than to help American farmers.
73) The Firing Line (1988) [B-Movie TV] - Reb Brown is fighting another war in another jungle. I think he's somewhere in South America working as a mercenary or a military adviser. He runs into Shannon Tweed, gets arrested by authorities, is tortured, then escapes and grabs Shannon Tweed, and they run off into the jungle and join the rebels, giving Reb lots of opportunities to yell, shoot at people, and blow stuff up.
74) Zui xia Su Qi Er (The Story of Drunken Master) (1979) - A guy loses all his money in a casino, then tries to pawn his old shoe and gets in a fight with the pawnshop owner.

The troublemaker runs off to his rich brother for help, and the brother comes to town and starts buying up businesses and starting trouble, hoping to get revenge on the Drunken Master for beating him in the fight years before.

4/28/19

75) Country Cuzzins (1970) [B-Movie TV] - Another Harry Novak Presentation, directed by Bethel Buckalew, that I've seen a few times and own on DVD, but decided I might as well watch again since it was on. Rene Bond and John Tull and all their cousins have a reunion on the farm, then go visit their wealthy cousin in the city. Also stars Buck Flower and Debbie Osborne.
76) Summer School (Mag Wheels) (1978) - A Bethel Buckalew flick I hadn't seen before. Steve is the leader of a gang of teenage boys who drive around in customized vans (customized by George Barris no less, who was one of the film's producers). Their main rivals are a group of girls who drive around in customized four wheel drive pickup trucks. Anita, the new girl in town, meets Steve at the beach one day. Unfortunately for Steve, his girlfriend, Donna (played by Buck Flower's daughter, Verkina), is jealous, and batshit crazy. She follows Anita home from work one night, and tries to run her off the road, and when that doesn't rid her of her competition, she calls the cops on Steve, reporting him as a cocaine dealer. Then she convinces Steve that Anita turned him in, so Steve chases down Anita and tries to rape her.
77) Revenge of Drunken Master (Revenge of the Drunken Master) (1984) - There's no Drunken Master to be seen. There is a new, younger guy, who they call "the Drunken Kid" who is an acupuncturist who can make people laugh. A bounty hunter is after him for making the governor laugh nonstop. Meanwhile, the "Blood Ninjas" are trying to kill all the "Drunken Fist" fighters. Why? It's a Godfrey Ho movie. Don't ask.

4/29/19

78) Kung Fu Massacre (Meng hu dou kuang long) (1974) - Guy comes home to discover his family was murdered, then he becomes a suspect and is wanted for the murders, so he runs off to find the real killers. Seems like that has happened in a lot of movies I've watched this month.
