Ex trucker Kris Kristofferson reminisces back to his old rig with a joyful smile. They were the days, stuck in a convoy traveling down the highway. Sat up high, blasting his horn and chatting to friends, Spider Mike and Widow Woman on his CB radio. Six years working on this new job as the chief investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board had taken its toll on poor Kris. Depressed, tired and desperate to get out, he’d promised himself a vacation. Maybe even quit all together. Continue reading “Millennium (1989) Kris Kristofferson & The Cyberpunk Charlie’s Angel”
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.
Tagline – First you die. . .Then the terror begins

Sometime during the 1990’s the Eugenics Wars had torn much of Earth apart. What with scientific gains in DNA mapping and experiments in cloning causing upheaval across the nations. The experiments had created a more advanced human, physically stronger with heightened learning abilities. In fact the characteristics were more than the scientists expected. They had helped create a human with more drive, determination and ego. All the ingredients needed for conquerors, tyrants and military tacticians.

In a world ravished by nuclear war, the barren, sorry looking landscape of Earth has taken on that familiar look of a post-apocalyptic Mad Max. Scattered little pockets of civilisation can be found around the desolate, desert terrain. The small market-towns are called dog-towns, where desperate people scavenge and scrounge for food scraps. On the fringe, the shanty towns of rubbish and recycled waste are forged into makeshift living spaces. The food consists of what tough vegetation is hardy enough to grow and whatever meat that can be found. Rats are high on the list but you sure get more meat on the bones of a dog! Besides the dog kind of comes in handy for past-time entertainment! Continue reading “The Blood of Heroes (1989) Rutger Hauer’s Battle Cry Salute To The Jugger”
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. Continue reading “Society (1989) Saucy Debauchery Cult Of The Social Elite”
Much like Peter Parker gets his Spidey sense, I experience a similar sensation, whenever danger arises in the area my hair stands on end. Much like I’ve touched one of those electric static balls. It might be a great addition to my crime fighting skills against the evildoers of the world but to be honest I look absolutely ridiculous! How can I tussle with the bad guys when I look like one of the hair bear bunch, rather than a terrifying wolf? Well I burst out into fur ball mode again but I was ready. I knew something bad was going down as I pulled out my most prized weapon from my utility belt, a water spray bottle to calm those hairs. I can’t fight proper looking way too cute.

In a world, some time soon, four heroes embark on treacherous mission to help put back the time continuum that was unleashing strange pockets of weird paranormal activity. Tyrant Overlord, The Lord Of Terror had changed the Earth’s magnetic fields, spewing electro charged particles in through VHS cassette tapes across the continents. Video cassettes that had lain dormant for many years, gathering dust and mould in basements and loft spaces, charity shops and movie vaults, started to react to the electronic waves. Spontaneously bringing to life characters that shouldn’t be in the same timeline together. Continue reading “Video Store Action Heroes! Coming Soon To A Theatre Near You”
There are some films in your teenage years that resonate a true fondness in your memory. You remember when you first watched it, that feeling of getting to know the characters as their friendship for each other develops. Invested in their close bond together on the screen, you care for these characters as they look out for one another. This comes across in laughter, bravery in the face of danger, keeping an eye on their partners back, a bond so close they could be brothers, a real bromance. The buddy cop movie is always a sure fire winner in that movie genre cannon. Running Scared ticked all those boxes for me as a youth. Continue reading “Running Scared (1986) Maybe Scared To Ruin Your Teenage Memories?”
Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner is one of my and many’s favourite movies, it perfectly features everything I love within a science fiction film. To say I was excited hearing the news that Secret Cinema was not only going to show the Final Cut but were actually going to recreate the over-populated dystopian futuristic city of Los Angeles in the year 2019. It all sent me into pure ecstatic buzz mode, making me as giddy as a drunken man. I just had to book, by hook or crook and get myself Off-World and immersed into this ultimate movie going experience.
Spoiler Alert – If you are booked to go before the last showing in July then please don’t read any further, just turn up and enjoy the wonders that will behold you. Trust me, you will be astonished.

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!
