Tagline – The seed is planted… the nightmare grows

Forbidden World (1982) Mike Colby (Jesse Vint) SAM-104 robot space ship cockpit

Space maverick Mike Colby (Jesse Vint) is peacefully sleeping in his stasis pod dreaming of wet t-shirt competitions. Until he’s rudely awaken by a fleet of approaching ships intent on blowing him to smithereens. Lucky his trusty robot SAM-104 (Don Olivera) is holding the fort but as the deadly force gets ever closer he needs Mike’s battle skills. After an explosive battle the victorious duo of Mike and Sam find the ship is in need of repairs. Piece of luck, they just so happen to be on course for the planet Xarbia. Now let’s get straight into the flirting.

Dr. Barbara Glaser –I hear you’re the biggest trouble-shooter in this part of the galaxy.”
Mike Colby –That’s what they tell me.
Dr. Barbara Glaser –How’d you like to see some… trouble?

Mike and Sam just so happen to have landed on a remote scientific research center. Met at the airlock by sexy blond Dr Barbara Glaser (June Chadwick) and Dr. Gordon Hauser (Linden Chiles). “You’re a new face around here, we don’t often get new faces” “That’s a truth” replies Barbara with a glint in her eye. Barbara is in need of some new eye candy. Mike is happy. But wait! There’s another beautiful young lady, Tracy Baxter (Dawn Dunlap) and she’s even more of a stunner. Mike has hit the jackpot! Oh boy, little does he know what is installed for him in the next hour.

Dr Gordon informs are two visitors that the research center has been working on a genetic experiment to create a new food source. With a seemingly brilliant breakthrough with Subject 20. Things unfortunately went wrong in a spectacular way! Subject 20 began to mutate and in doing so ripped to shreds all the test animals in their cubicles. It’s a totally shit storm in the laboratory with dead bloodied carcasses scattered around in frenzied carnage. Still, no one really seems that bothered by this! Especially the forever smoking and coughing lead scientist Dr. Cal Timbergen (Fox Harris).

Let the havoc and bloodshed begin with the usual cannon fodder crew ready to be consumed in one way or the other. Gore, splatter, guts and a right goopy mess is thrown across the research center as the mutant transforms into Ripley’s Alien crossed with Audrey 2 from Little Shop Of Horrors.

Mike Colby – “Let’s go bag ourselves a Dingwhopper!”

So what to do whilst this carnage is happening? Well let’s get naked! We get Barbara and Tracy in a shower scene together. There’s time for a montage lovemaking sequence between Barb and Mike that is truly awful and hilarious at the same time. A scientist wanders, thinking in his dressing gown. A sweaty jealous man watches the action on a monitor as he spins a kids toy! Barb checks out Mike’s dodgy scars whilst crew member, Brian Beale (Raymond Oliver) plays a future flute to the bizarre steamy saucy scene. Oh and later to chillout after all the mayhem, Tracy decides to go for a naked sauna whilst Mikes just happens to walk in and now he’s ready for seconds!

Tracy Baxter –You know what? It looks like you could really use the steam bath!
Mike Colby –Well, I had a hard night.
Tracy Baxter –So fair’s fair. Get naked.

A few things.

  • Don’t judge a book by its cover or a movie poster for that matter! That artwork for Forbidden World might be awesome but it hasn’t any resemblance to the film.
  • Directed by Allan Holzman from a story and screenplay from Tim Curnen and Jim Wynorski.
  • Forbidden World is also known as Mutant and Subject 20 at various times.
  • June Chadwick is probably best known as Lydia, one of the invading aliens from the 80s sci-fi series V. If memory serves me well she was 2nd in command to Diana (Jane Badler)

  • Jesse Vint had a part in the superb eco science fiction movie with Bruce Dern and one of my favs, Silent Running (1972)
  • Investigated to see what else the lovely Dawn Dunlap had been in. Oh my! a blast from the past, Barbarian Queen (1985)! I remember renting that turkey on VHS. Sold on the cover. Hey don’t judge, I was a teenager hehe.

  • Forbidden World shares some of the same Corman sets recycled from Battle Beyond the Stars (1980) and Galaxy of Terror (1981)
  • If you’re looking for another naughty science fiction movie with some boobies then Android is good fun.

I’ll leave the plentiful nakedness, the mutant and the rest of the crazy action scenes for you. Yeah of course Forbidden World is bad but hey bad can be really good fun. Go check it out if you can and if you have and fancy dropping a comment, then by all means feel free to do so. Maybe pop in for some tasty technicolor food? Yummy!

X The Man with the X-Ray Eyes (1963) Roger Corman’s Optical Science Fiction Horror

x the man with the x-ray eyes (1963) incredible artwork poster design reynold brown

X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes has to be one of my favorite Roger Corman films and one I revisit on many occasions since I first saw it in 1989.  I know the year because it was shown on British TV as part of director Alex Cox presents Moviedrome series that featured so many classic films. Check out my Moviedrome appreciation post I did a while back to see what it was all about or get a nostalgia fix if like me, you fondly remember the series.

4D Man (1959) Bongo Beat Jive Catwoman In The 4th Dimension

4d man poster

Dr. Tony Nelson (James Congdon) had the crazy idea that he could fuse a 4th dimensional state with pulsating beatnik bongos. Was he insane or visionary? It was certainly a maverick idea and beyond the realms of experimental science fiction. He would be ridiculed in his scientific profession if he failed. He rest assured that with the help of his resourceful brother, Dr. Scott Nelson (Robert Lansing), that the impossible could be achieved.

Phase IV (1974) Saul Bass Intelligent Killer Ant Attack

phase-iv-1074-poster

What better film to follow up Them on a double bill than with another bunch of crazed, demented six legged psychopathic ant nut jobs, the 1974 film Phase IV. This feature is filled with visually luscious images and gorgeous landscape design, it’s quite the wonder to look at. But please be forewarned that you spend the runtime scratching like a shaggy dog. Oh my fur was twitching and an itching like crazy right through this creepy crawly movie. Even the eerie music gets under the skin. Essential item to have with you whilst watching is a personal back scratcher or two, down a bit, ooo to left a bit ooo that’s it, that’s the spot. A big thanks goes out to Lieutenant’s Nina Barry and Gay Ellis from UFO in helping me with my itching, you did a grand job….

Creature (1985) What’s More Scary? Klaus Kinski Or A Xenomorph Rip Off?

Had to squeeze a turkey in, hey it was just christmas after all. Yeah Creature does riff on and rips off Alien but maybe it’s revenge for 1958’s It! The Terror From Beyond Space?  As you can well imagine Creature is off in another part of the universe in the quality comparisons. But was it really that bad? By this tagline it sure sounds badass.

It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) It Breathes. It Hunts. It Kills!

It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) alien b-movie sci-fi poster art work

Yeah I was only 2 at the time but you would of thought Mankind landing on Mars in 1973 would of made a significant mark on the history books! I guess what with the end of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal in full swing that a crew of 10 landing on the red planet 54 million kilometers away, just ain’t all that newsworthy!

I bet it was down to the Science Advisory Committee Division Of Interplanetary Exploration covering up the facts. They didn’t want the first successful mission to Mars to be surrounded by….. murder! Continue reading “It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) It Breathes. It Hunts. It Kills!”

Society (1989) Saucy Debauchery Cult Of The Social Elite

What with Halloween nearly upon us it only feels right to jump into a horror and one with a big pumpkin sized barrel filled with pitch black humour instead of sweet candy. Not sure how I had missed the delights of Society, it had truly passed me by. Luckily I had my younger brother Dan to disturb and warp my mind. And what with the riot that was to come forth, I don’t know whether I should be thankful or not? hehe of course I was, it’s a total blast but I assure you, it’s not for the faint-hearted. It’s saucy, sexy and rather naughty and, without doubt totally utterly bat-shit insane.

Lady In A Cage (1964) Like An Animal Orgy House Invasion!

Lady In A Cage (1964) movie poster film Olivia James Caan thriller

Opening with one of the best opening credit sequences I’ve seen for sometime, inspired Saul Bass on speed. Fast paced bold graphics flashing up harsh lines to the sound of suspenseful pounding free jazz beats. Then the credits change to strange images, with a sinister notion, with snap shots of photography close ups to unease you into this manic rollercoaster ride of a film. This is the sixties alright, the cinematography filming style and music let us know that straight from the get go. Continue reading “Lady In A Cage (1964) Like An Animal Orgy House Invasion!”

Night of the Comet (1984) Usherette, Cheerleader & Commander Chakotay Fight The Cannibal Zombies

Night Of The Comet (1984) comedy horror zombie end of the world film

1984 was the year at school we read the John Wyndham novel called The Day Of The Triffids for English. You would of hoped it would be part of all educational learning, to be a forewarning at least for when a breathtaking and magnificent light show of comets appear in the sky. To be taught the first thing you do is bandage your eyes and hide in a windowless room. No matter how mind-blowing and eye-poppingly wonderous the visual light show is, The Triffids pre-warned us, it’s gonna get real bad, real quick!

Blow Out (1981) B-movie Sound Man Records More Than He Can Chew

Blow Out (1981) italian movie poster

Was in the mood for an eighties movie last night, a thriller would do. Nothing came to mind, had a flick through Netflix to see John Travolta looking at me. First thought, I was certain I had seen it, though it must of been a long time ago. Reading the first line of the plot didn’t ring any bells. With a quick scan of IMDB I notice it had a very healthy rating and much loved by many. The little description of the plot sounded excellent and makes me realise that I may not have actually seen this film. Brilliant I’m buzzing, beer poured and ready to tuck into my steak and chips, I press play. Continue reading “Blow Out (1981) B-movie Sound Man Records More Than He Can Chew”
