Betsy Russel @ Flashback Weekend

Flashback count down day 10. Looking forward to meeting Betsy Russell. And not becuase of the Saw movies. Like most teenage boys I fell in love with her back in Private School and of couarse Cheeleader Camp (AKA Bloody Pom Pom's).

Russell's first role was in the 1982 film Let's Do It!. In 1983, Russell's breakout role came as Jordan Leigh-Jenson in the, Private School. While shooting the film Avenging Angel, she was offered to audition for the 1985 film Silverado but turned it down. She said in an interview, "Everything happens for a reason. I always believe my career would have been different had I done that part. I can’t say if it would have been better or worse. I’ve had a good run". She went on to star in a series of B movies in the 1980s including Tomboy, and Cheerleader Camp. 

After a brief retirement from acting, Russell appeared in a small role in Saw III playing Jigsaw's John Kramer's ex-wife, Jill Tuck. She went on to star in the sequels, Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, and Saw 3D.

One of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, YOU'RE NEXT reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror.

This is from a brand new web-series titled, “I liked it better when…” that highlights the uncanny similarities between the two pictures. Just watch – first, prepare to be blown away – and take in the complete breakdown which seems to hint a potential issue with creativity on Raimi’s end.

Quick Hit Movie Reviews

Had a small movie marathon yesterday. I must say that if you have not checked out John Dies at the End you should! Totally twisted, off the wall well acted movie! Watch it now.

It's hard to write anything to bad about this movie. The movie has been lost for 27 years they find a VHS copy and restore it. They did a great job with that but I was not into the story. Acting was great the music was fantastic.

4 Bloody Brains

Love this movie. Sure its simple but very well done! I watched this in hopes to catch Trancers 1.5 premiere at Flashback Weekend in August. And Helen Hunt was so F'n HOT in this movie.

3 Bloody Brains
Caught this one last night on Starz. I was shocked at how much I liked it. Even my wife sat and watched she seemed to enjoy it more. Kevin James finally made a good movie. 

Today I hope to watch the New Texas Chainsaw movie if all goes well. Have a good Sunday everybody.

It's The DRAG-U-LA special!

Munsters, Go Home
1966 | Color | 96 Min | 1.85:1 | Mono | Comedy | Universal

Director: Earl Bellamy

Writers: Joe Connelly

Fred Gwynne
Yvonne De Carlo
Al Lewis
John Carradine

Herman discovers he's the new lord of Munster Hall in England. The family sails to Britain, where they receive a tepid welcome from Lady Effigy and Freddie Munster, who throws tantrums because he wasn't named Lord Munster. An on-board romance had blossomed between Marilyn and Roger, but on land Marilyn discovers Roger's family holds a longstanding grudge against the Munsters. Herman upholds the family honor in an auto race; he and Grandpa also unlock "the secret of Munster Hall."

Pop up some popcorn and gather the family around for this highly requested classic. TV's first family of fright head to England. And no groans from the kids this one is in Color!

This movie is also when we are introduced to Grandpa's Drag-U-La Hotrod. Cue the Rob Zombie music! A little slow at first but this movie is sure to please.

Released in the US in mid-summer 1966, this film was frequently double-billed with the similarly-themed The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.  Also "Munsters, Go Home" is Debbie Watson  first and only appearance as Marilyn Munster. And keep your ears open at the end when Herman and Grandpa are shouting for help.
Herman says, "Call Batman," then adds, "Car 54, where are you?" of course Car 54, Where Are You? was the title of a 1961 comedy series that featured both Gwynne and Lewis.

“Munster Go Home” runs tonight on Me-TV at 10 pm eastern and pacific, 9 pm central, and please check what time we’re on near you in your local listings. In Chicago, at 11 am on WCIU, the U, get a final look at the movie that brought us record ratings on Me-TV last week- the giant grasshoppers VS Chicago epic- “Beginning of the End”!

Lord Of Salem Hits the stores this September

Anchor Bay Home Entertainment will bring to Blu-ray Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem (2012), starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Bruce Davison, Jeff Daniel Phillips, and meg Foster. The release will be available for purchase on line and in stores across the nation on September 3rd.

From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood. The Lords of Salem tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a "gift from the Lords." Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town's violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the "Lords of Salem" returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?

Teaser Tuesday Curse of Chucky

This looks fun! It's nice to see new life in this franchise and a much better looking Chucky. Sad that it is going straight to Blu-Ray would have been fun to watch on the big screen. I guess we will have to wait one more year to see the remake it the multi plex. Watch for this to hit shelves in October.

The claws come out when the competition gets fierce, but when they begin to disappear one by one, they soon find that they are competing for their lives.

So Big...we had to coin a new word for it...NEWMENDOUS!

Beginning Of The End
1957 | B&W | 76 Min | 1.66:1 | Mono | Horror | AB-PT Pictures Corp.

Director: Bert I. Gordon

Fred Freiberger
Lester Gorn

Peter Graves
Peggie Castle
Morris Ankrum 

Reporter Audrey Ames is driving along a highway in Illinois when she is stopped by the military. She then finds out that a small town was destroyed and everyone has seemingly disappeared. She then goes to a lab run by the Department of Agriculture. While she is there she meets the lab's director, Dr. Ed Wainwright. Ed then tells her that strange things have been happening ever since he discovered that a bunch of grasshoppers managed to get into a silo containing a batch of radioactive wheat. They soon discover that the grasshoppers have grown to monstrous proportions and not only are devouring the local vegetation, but have developed a taste for human flesh as well. Now the locusts are marching towards Chicago and the military is threatening to destroy the city with the atom bomb. Can another solution to stop the monsters be found before it is too late? 

"This Bert I. Gordon flick, starring Peter Graves and lots of voice work by Paul Frees, is a favorite from the 50s- and we’ll give you info on the movie, along with plenty of Sven shtick. WARNING for those who like- and those who dislike- Svensurround- the beginning of the film drags severely- so, we added Svensurround to the first couple segments, until the movie really gets rolling (there may be a wee bit later on…) For those who don’t enjoy- please bear with us during those segments. remember that the bulk of this show was produced before our Me-TV run, and we do understand that some of our new audience doesn’t care for Svensurround in the body of the film.Those who DO like it- well, you’ll be happy…those with a historical bent will love seeing how Chicago was in the 1950s- and everybody will find some of the “special effects” laughable!" Said Svengoolie.

Things to watch for tonight 

During the first locust encounter with the soldiers, a scene of a soldier falling down on one knee and firing his rifle at the locusts is reused a few scenes later.

In one of the pan scenes showing Chicago is one of the windows you can see moving traffic.

During the battle for Chicago, whenever a grasshopper appears directly in front of troops, soldiers turn to their right and shoot away from it.

There are no mountains in central Illinois. I know this for a fact I live here.

The same rear projection shot is used three times; watch for a dark car passing in the opposite lane, followed shortly by a white car.

So make sure you check out this special treat tonight on Me-TV at 10 pm eastern and pacific,9 pm central, or check your local listings for time where you are!

Fate dials the number...terror answers the phone!

I Saw What You Did
1965 | B&W | 82 Min | 1.85:1 | Mono | Horror | Universal

William Castle

William P. McGivern

Joan Crawford
John Ireland
Leif Erickson
Sarah Lane

When two teenagers make prank phone calls to strangers, they become the target for terror when they whisper "I Saw What You Did, And I Know Who You Are!" to psychopath Steve Marek who has just murdered his wife. But somebody else knows of the terrible crime that was committed that night, the killer's desperately amorous neighbor Amy Nelson.

Yes a William Castle classic tonight on Sven. Castle best know for his gimmicks only had one for this movie. During its original theatrical release some theaters installed seat-belts so you couldn't be "shocked out of your seat".  I guess you could say Joan Crawford was used as a gimmick as well. She was paid $50,000 for a cameo that lead to top billing. She work only 4 days on the movie. This would also be Crawford's last American made film. She would go on to make only two more films. Both films where shot in the UK.

If you have not seen this yet you owe it to yourself. This is on of Castle's better flicks that is hardly ever talked about.

Watch 'I Saw What You Did' at 10 PM / 9 C, Saturday, July 6, on Me-TV. - See more at:

I give it:
