Dinosaur Disco Fever

Fry up some chicken, because Carnosaur is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell: Carnosaur is a gruesome, low-budget, Roger Corman-produced Jurassic Park knock-off. Katherin does not appreciate its many rich, deep layers of nuance and social commentary.

“Will your school be next?”

Fire up your turn tables, because Rock ‘n’ Roll High School 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, aka Seanie Ramone.

Review in a Nutshell: A cultural artifact from a time before cell phones and the Internet, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School is the kind of raucous, exuberant, nonsensical comedy that couldn’t skate by with a PG rating these days. It’s Animal House by way of Grease…starring the Ramones.

4th DIMENSIONAL ATTACK!?!

starcrash

Strap on your space bikini, because Star Crash is definitely the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell: Star Crash is an Italian Star Wars knock-off that is amazingly bad on every technical level. Ridiculous, absurd, and illogical, it manages to turn a 92 minute run time into a torturous cinematic experience that lasts an eternity. I love it. I haven’t laughed so hard in years.

This movie contains:

sc001

Leaping Cavemen.

sc002

Mind Lasers.

sc003

Joe Spinell, Space Tyrant.

See You, Space Cowboy.

Beware of space banditos, because Battle Beyond the Stars is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Bluray disc cover or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Jeff “Rich Lather” Tatarek.

Review in a Nutshell: A science fiction pastiche that borrows liberally from The Magnificent Seven and Star Wars, Battle Beyond the Stars is nonetheless a low-budget romp that showcases a young James Cameron’s eye for production design and also includes colorful performances from veteran character actors.

This movie contains:

bbts01

John Saxon, Space Tyrant.

bbts02

Melancholy Lizardmen.

bbts03

Hey, man. It’s impolite to point.

Revenge of the Worm Scene, Part Deux

galaxy

Get ready to face your fears, because Galaxy of Terror is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell:  A sometimes trashy, sometimes gruesome science fiction / horror movie with great production design and a well-rounded cast of character actors, Galaxy of Terror is half Alien rip-off and half homage to 1950s films like Forbidden Planet.  Watch it if you dare.

This film contains:

galaxy01

Robert Englund, Space Commando.

galaxy02

Eewie-gooey.

The Lonely Death of Arthur Piggman

deathstalker

Dust off your loincloth, because Deathstalker is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell:  Ostensibly a sword and sorcery fantasy, Deathstalker is mostly an excuse to show female nudity and male semi-nudity.  This film puts the ‘exploit’ in exploitation film.

This movie contains:

ds001

Rubber Puppets.

ds002

Wrasslin’.

ds003

Petulant Wizards.

Faster, Robot! Kill, Kill!

Hold onto your ice cream cones, because Chopping Mall is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Max Dunn.

Review in a Nutshell:  A low budget slasher flick produced by Roger Corman and directed by Jim Wynorski, Chopping Mall is better than it has any right to be.  The killer robots steal the show.

This movie contains:

Chewing Gum.

Peanut-headed Pliosaur

Hold onto your Jet Skis, because Dinoshark is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M..

Review in a Nutshell:  A fun little creature feature with decent production values, Dinoshark is one of the better low-budget, prehistoric aquatic predator movies.

This movie contains:

Sunglasses + Binoculars

Hey, look, a helicopter!

Authentic Military-grade Hardware.

Super Secret Roger Corman Podcast: When Fishmen Attack

Hide your kids, hide your wives, because Humanoids from the Deep (aka Monster) is the Greatest Movie EVER?

Click on the movie poster above to download our review of the film, featuring Oliver from the Brain Palace podcast and Mike Dent from R5 Central.

(This was actually the least raunchy poster I could find.  Do not Google image search for Humanoids from the Deep with your ‘Safe Search’ settings turned off.)

Review in a Nutshell:  Yes, it’s THAT movie.  The one with the rubber fishmen getting a bit too fresh with nubile young ladies in bikinis.  Nuff said.

This movie contains:

Vic Morrow, Drunken Sailor.

“Sushi.  Cold fish.  That’s what my wife called me…”

The most effective seduction technique ever captured on film.

House of 1000 Fishies?

Inflate your intertubes and break out the beach chairs, because Piranha (1978) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring a rather traumatized Katherine the Great.

Review in a Nutshell:  Despite a derivative plot and a low budget, Piranha is a remarkably effective horror movie certain to thrill and delight.  It’s still able to make poor Katherine squirm.

This movie contains:

Drunken Protagonists.

Mad Scientists.

Evil, Fish Geneticist Girlfriends.

WHAT HAS SCIENCE WROUGHT!?!
