One Dark Night is the creepy 80's classic about sorority pledge Meg Tilly whose determined to join a popular group that is ran by her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend who is considerably jealous and mean-spirited as her and her group put her through the ultimate hell by having her stay the night at the creepy mausoleum. Unbeknownst to them, an evil man who is capable of moving objects and drawing energy from victims has just been buried there, but he is far from dead as he uses his powers from beyond the grave to make the evening especially traumatic for his latest set of victims. A side story involving the madman's estranged daughter learning of his powers as well as her own, which include visions of the girls being haunted in the mausoleum. Adam West shows up as her husband in a somewhat wasted, but still slightly comical role. I'm ashamed I've only now seen this movie as it was very enjoyable. Considering the sometimes risque subject matter, not to mention the sheer creepiness throughout some of the movie, and the usage of grotesque dead body effects, it's a wonder that this film is only rated PG. This certifies my thoughts on the MPAA being a corrupt system of people with right-wing agendas who would have instantly rated this movie R nowadays. Back then PG films had balls, as this little underrated gem does. Good effects, good characters, decently thrilling and chilling. Great directorial debut from Tom McLoughlin, who would go on to direct other great horror fare like Friday the 13th 6: Jason Lives and Sometimes They Come Back. Granted, it spends an hour building and building, but when all hell breaks loose, it totally becomes worth it. Fun film!
WHAT AN AMAZING GEM OF A HORROR FLICK!!! It's got dead zombie children, tons of gore, resurrected hot chicks, giant-monster poodle, an old fat lady as the lead hero of the film, and Phyllis Diller!!! An aging psychic (Deborah Rose, who's a terrific lead in this film), two cops, a thought to be dead woman, and Phyllis Diller are all trapped in a coroner's building with three zombie children that are tiny, scary as shit, and fast as hell. I loved this movie. It's over the top, fun, and sometimes very chilling!!! If you manage to come across this movie, watch it. It's awesome!
Nightbeast is just pure hilariously bad fun. This sci-fi horror schlockfest stars a batch of director Don Dohler's friends and family who take on a hulking and deadly alien that crashlands to Earth one night. In the first 15 minutes alone, there are over a dozen people killed, either by the alien's hilarious ray gun or by brute force. Not even Dohler's kids are safe in this movie (who make a brief appearance). Apart from the atrocious love scene, this film isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. There are plenty of corny and funny moments, but this film is out there to entertain people, and Nightbeast accomplishes that. High body count, funny creature and gore effects, a few titties here and there. What's not to love about this film? Definitely worthy of being a cult hit. Please, if you are expecting greatness, don't bother with this film. You'll only fuck up the rating system with your stupid rating for a movie you shouldn't have watched. This is purely for fans of cheese!
Killer Tongue (or La Lengua asesina in it's native Spain) is the hilarious story of two star-crossed lovers/criminals. When the man (Jason Durr) goes to prison, the woman, Candy (Melinda Clark, who looks much better here than in her lead role in Return of the Living Dead III), takes refuge in a desert gas station with her 4 poodles. One fateful day, a meteorite comes crashing down and an alien takes over Candy, inhabiting her tongue and giving her directions like a modern day Eylmer (Brain Damage for those confused by the metaphor). To answer your question, yes, this movie is completely absurd, but it's a lot of fun and entertaining. What could make a movie about a talking, killer tongue on a hot babe even better? Why not ludicrous appearances from Doug Bradley (credited as Dough Bradley unfortunately) and the great Robert Englund. For a few good laughs, check out Killer Tongue.
After the lucrative (don't ask how) results of The Asylum's horridly hilarious Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, it was a no-brainer for this low-budget, mockbuster company to try their luck again with Megapiranha. And hey, they killed two birds with one stone by delivering a "mockbuster" for the upcoming Piranha 3D film! Megapiranha has hunky Z-grade action star Paul Logan (Curse of the Komodo) playing CIA operative Jason Fitch who heads down to the Amazon after the disappearance of the US Ambassador, a South American General, and several naked chicks. Almost immediately, Fitch is met with hostility by the new General in charge. It's not until he meets with big-tittied, faded pop star Tiffany (playing a biology scientist) who pins the disappearances on biologically mutated piranha that never stop feeding or growing. With the South American soldiers on their trail, Fitch, Tiffany and her two fellow scientists (one of which should REALLY consider being the next trailer narrator, because that voice he used throughout this movie was fantastic) are on the run. There's also the massive piranhas that leap out of the water and kamikaze bomb buildings! Oh, there's also faded Brady Bunch star Barry Williams as Fitch's boss. Plenty of laughs are to be had with this ridiculous film. Those who found enjoyment in the awfulness of Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus will be delighted in knowing this this one does in fact top it and manages to outdo it in sheer entertainment value with less drawn out boring moments. With this one, you get what you pay for. Bad acting, bad effects, an abundance of continuity mistakes, yet a large dose of comedy and an impressive body count! Definitely a so-bad-it's-good film worth watching with a group of friends and a lot of beer!
