vhd_bloodlust_dvd

You were expecting Crusher Joe, but it was me, Vampire Hunter D(io)!

Terrible meme humor aside, July is coming to a close and we’d be remiss if we didn’t offer up another quivering slab of Anime Fun Time. This time Tom and I take a look at Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, a slick albeit strange theatrical film from 2000. In a movie filled with vampires, torso-wolves, mechanical horses, steampunk tanks, and ghost lasers, can a fun time be far behind? Click on the movie title or the DVD cover above to find out!

Final Thought:

Ghost vampires are like the worst kind of vampire.

“BABIESSSSSS!”

Come on out of your shell, because Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER.

Review in a Nutshell: This one’s a bloodbath. I believe Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze  is a bad movie that does not hold up to starry-eyed childhood nostalgia. My co-hosts disagree. I get to write these blurbs, though, so I WIN! MWA HA HA!

This movie poster is entirely accurate.

to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Oli Bulmer.

Review in a Nutshell: A dark fantasy Spanish / Italian / Mexican co-production that cribs liberally from such films as Conan the Barbarian, Clan of the Cave Bear, Clash of the Titans, and Beastmaster, Conquest is long on smoke machines and short on plot. Expect wolf men, cave men, swamp mummies, and bows that shoot lasers. It’s a very strange film which I think everyone should watch, because Lucio Fulci is a weird dude.

Beware the moon, because An American Werewolf in London is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Internet Terrorist (and Master of Air Sex) Thomas Pandich.

Review in a Nutshell: An old-fashioned horror tale with plenty of humor to lighten the mood, An American Werewolf in London also set the standard for on-screen transformation sequences that has yet to be surprassed.

Flower, Ew?

Break out the silver bullets, because Monster Dog is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, feauting Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Staggeringly terrible rubber werewolf puppets mixed with spooky cinematography and a great location, Monster Dog is not quite Troll 2 levels of awesome, but it comes awfully close.

The Merry Adventures of Tito and The Wolfman

Zip up those yellow jumpsuits, because Turkey Shoot is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Oliver from the Welcome to the Brain Palace Podcast.

Review in a Nutshell:  An inexplicable mash-up of “women in prison” and “most dangerous game” films, Turkey Shoot is alternatively considered the apex and the nadir of Australian exploitation film.

This movie contains:

Friendly Fascists.

An Arrow Through the Mouth.

A Dapper Wolfman.
