What dark powers possess the mysterious trinket?
When his patient Kim is nearly killed in a motor accident, Dr. Martin decides to investigate.
His only clue is a strange trinket which Kim has clutched since her crash. An occult expert tells him it is Akasa – a Hittite God of revenge and destruction.
Meanwhile Kim’s car, apparently unmanned, rampages the roads causing carnage and disaster…


Crash is one of the first movies in Charles Bands still growing film career. After countless bootlegs, hard to find VHS tapes and never released on DVD, Full Moon Streaming has premiered this new widescreen version for all the uber fans out there. How does a 1970's movie about a killer car hold up. In my mind very well. The movie will keep you in your seat so make sure you…

I Saw What You Did To My Black Cat!

Image
To keep up with my Vacation movie marathon last night was time to clean up my Tivo a little bit and watch a few Svengoolie's from the past month. First up

Black Cat (1934)

Bela Lugosi and Bori Karloff teamed up for the first of six pairings, this time in a story about a young couple traveling by train through Hungary (always a bad idea in the movies). They meet Dr. Vitus Werdegast (Lugosi) on the train, a psychiatrist who’s going to visit his Austrian friend, Hjalmar Poelzig (Karloff), who’s spent the last 15 years in a notorious prison camp. But the train crashes, the young woman is injured, and the trio ends up journeying to the forboding home of Poelzig. Bad things happen after that. Poelzig, by the way, was based in part on infamous British occultist Aleister Crowley.
There is a lot to like here. The custom where iconic the musical score was spot on and the first to run an entire movie. Of course the cast was wonderful. But two things really stuck out in my mind for a 1934 movi…

30th Anniversay NO WAY!

Universal Studios Home Entertainment will release a 30th Anniversary Blu-ray Edition of director John Hughes' The Breakfast Club (1985), starring Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy. The release will be available for purchase on March 10, 2015.

Synopsis: They were five students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their high school library. At 7 a.m., they had nothing to say, but by 4 p.m. they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. John Hughes creator of the critically acclaimed Sixteen Candles, wrote, directed and produced this hilarious and often touching comedy starring Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess and the Kook, but to each other, they would always be The Breakfast Club.

This enables them to witness the reawakening of a terrible threat to all of Humanity, which is made all the worse with a second secret revival elsewhere. Against this cataclysm, the only hope for the world may be Godzilla, but the challenge for the King of the Monsters will be great even as Humanity struggles to understand the destructive ally they have.

The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O'Neil and her cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder's diabolical plan.
So not sure where to start with this. I wanted to love this movie. I was a fan of the cartoon's and the first two movies. When the trailers hit early this year I was not sure how I felt about the new look of the turtles. A few minutes in the look of them was not the problem in fact they come off pretty cool. The plot on the other hand was horrif…

Caveman

Olive Films is set to bring us Caveman on BluRay this February. I could not get enough of this as a child. I do wonder if it will hold up over time.
The Beatles’ Ringo Starr is Atouk, the caveman of the title. As the leader of a rag-tag group of cavemen considered inferior by a larger group of cavemen, Atouk has his work cut out for him when he sets his sights on the beautiful Lana (Barbara Bach). Trouble is … Lana belongs to Tonda (John Matuszak) the leader of the “superior” cavemen. Undeterred, Atouk sets out to win Lana’s hand while being pursued by the caveman-crazy Tala (Shelley Long) and fending off some very hungry dinosaurs.

Caveman is directed by Carl Gottlieb (screenwriter Jaws).

Owlman strikes again.

Lord of Tears drectior Lawrie Brewster sent me a note letting me know that the owlman has struck again.

Every day visitors arrive, from urban explorers to photographers, at the former morgue of St. Kilda's Hospital. There they discovered the shrine... of the dreaded Owlman!

4 hidden cameras recored what happened and as Brewster put it "The video was produced... mostly... almost.... without incident!"

You can also find out more at their facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/lordoftearsmovie
