featuring Saint Mort of The Saint Mort Show and Horror Movie Night Podcast, both available via Geekscape.net.

Review in a Nutshell: A fun little “creature feature” that completely flies apart in the third act, Graveyard Shift nevertheless has excellent production value, good special effects, and charming performances from a strong cast of character actors.

Beware of angry poltergeists, because The Changeling (1980) is the Greatest Movie EVER.

Review in a Nutshell: The Changeling (1980) is a beautifully shot, gorgeously edited, low-key, suspenseful film that is part ghost story and part detective story. Although the final act stumbles a bit after all of the mysteries are revealed, it’s still interesting as a well-made, atypical horror movie.

ERRATA: I accidentally referred to House on Haunted Hill as 13 Ghosts. Mea culpa.

Dial ‘N’ for Ninja.

Wax up your surfboard because American Ninja 2: The Confrontation is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.

Review in a Nutshell: A film filled with hard-partying U.S. Marines and improbably ninja, American Ninja 2: The Confrontation is a largely derivative sequel that still manages to capture a lot of the zaniness that made the mini “ninja craze” of the Eighties such a unique period in film history. The presence of Steve James really elevates the film.

FINAL THOUGHT:

Kidnapping people at the beach is standard ninja operating procedure.

There’s a Fungus Among Us

matango

Batten down the hatches and stow the sails, because Matango: Attack of the Mushroom People is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Japanese movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M. and many mushrooms.

Review in a Nutshell: Although M.O.M. disagrees, I feel that Matango is a cinematic rarity in that it is both bleak, nihilistic, and psychedelic. The special effects by Eiji Tsuburaya and company as well as the set dressing are especially good. Who is the real monstrous mushroom? Who, indeed?

We’re back, fully licensed and fueled up to have some more Anime Fun Time with our special guest Basil from the OSMCast. This time we’re talking about the 2009 anime film, Redline, directed by Takeshi Koike. Topics of discussion include this under-appreciated film as well as Tom’s staggering Ranma 1/2 addiction and Basil’s improbable fascination with shojo and sports anime. CLICK HERE or on the Youtube banner above to download our review of the film. While you’re at, you can watch Manga Entertainment’s official English dubbed version of the film here.

Final Thought:

Let’s look at a few results of the “Screencap a Random Scene from Redline to Use as Your Computer Wallpaper” Challenge.

Australians Always Observe Proper Helmet Safety.

Wear your color coordinated helmets, because BMX Bandits is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.

Review in a Nutshell: This is an odd one. It’s a carefree children’s adventure movie filmed by a pioneer of violent, trashy Oz-ploitation flicks. BMX Bandits takes a while to deliver the bicycle-related goods and some of the stunts may seem tame by today’s standards, but overall this is a harmless kid’s movie filled with snarky, wise-cracking Australians.

All Grieco, All the Time.

Put on your X-ray specs, because ‘If Looks Could Kill’ is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: A comedic send-up of spy movies featuring Richard Grieco as a high-school French student turned involuntary secret agent, ‘If Looks Could Kill’ is both surprisingly gruesome and surprisingly humorous. It’s just the right level of dumb to be entertaining. Special thanks to Jeff Phillips for requesting this one through the IndieGoGo campaign.
