Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/4 No Score Yet Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat (2003) You'll be happy to know, I'm sure, that Herschell still makes movies the old-fashioned way --- with no money and no second takes.‐ United Press International

2/4 No Score Yet Mark of the Astro Zombies (2002) "Mark of the Astro-Zombies" doesn't make a lick of sense, proving that Ted V. Mikels has not so much evolved as a filmmaker but calcified in that inimitable way he has of being simultaneously outrageous and boring.‐ United Press International

No Score Yet Bad Girl (2001) I'm telling you, this movie will make you long for the complete cinematic works of Yoko Ono.‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet Shatter Dead (2002) It's one of those movies where half the time you don't know exactly what's going on, but the gritty video makes it realistic and scary enough that you don't really care.‐ United Press International

2.5/4 No Score Yet The Double-D Avenger (2001) Not since "Beach House" have I been so moved.‐ United Press International

1.5/4 No Score Yet Mayhem Motel (2001) These may be the most obnoxious, disgusting people ever to be seen in one place at one time, and since Kempter says his two main influences are John Waters and "Gummo," we don't have to wonder why they start killing one another.‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet Mexican Blow (2002) My kinda movie!‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet Duck! The Carbine High Massacre (1998) It's a really bad movie that delivers in the final few moments.‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet Terror Firmer (1999) Kaufman always delivers on the three B's: blood, breasts and beasts. And in this case he's so far beyond X-rated that I have to say he made ME flinch, and I've seen 47,000 of these things.‐ United Press International

2/4 No Score Yet R.I.C.C.O. (2002) They don't call 'em exploitation flicks for nothing, do they? I liked it in spite of myself.‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet The poster says it all: "She's young. She's an attorney. She's packing a 12-gauge shotgun."‐ United Press International

3.5/4 No Score Yet Attack Of The Bat Monsters (2012) This is a must-see for anyone interested in the period. I could complain about some anachronisms (the term "scream queen" hadn't been invented in 1959, for example), but on the whole it's pretty accurate.‐ United Press International

2/4 No Score Yet Maniacal (2003) It's by the numbers but it never bogs down.‐ United Press International

1.5/4 No Score Yet The story is peppered with that convention of the 19th century stage, the "aside," spoken directly to the camera in fuzzy scratchy black-and-white. It's funny the first two or three times.‐ United Press International

4/4 No Score Yet Hunting Humans (2002) This is an extremely well directed film that has already won some B movie awards, and once again it cements the reputation of the Baltimore area as the place where all the most interesting low-budget work is happening these days.‐ United Press International

2.5/4 No Score Yet Witchcraft XI: Sisters in Blood (2000) What was I doing? Where was I? How could this happen? -- I missed ALL the "Witchcraft" movies from one through ten.‐ United Press International
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2016
2/4 No Score Yet Raging Hormones (1999) The problem when people other than John Waters try to DO John Waters is that the acting gets too broad, and that's what happens here, with a couple of the girls so over the top they'd have to tone it down for the Seaquarium dolphin show.‐ United Press International

2/4 No Score Yet Hookers In a Haunted House (1999) Yes, they really had a script for this.‐ United Press International
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2016
4/4 No Score Yet Satan Was a Lady (2001) All of the Wishman elements are here -- the suggestive lesbian subplots, the cutaways to random inanimate objects (she saves money by dubbing dialogue without showing the speaker's face), and, of course, plenty of gratuitous nudity and violence.‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet The Ultimate Attraction (2000) There are some things you just never get tired of drooling over. Taylor St. Claire, as a bio-engineered mutant caused by a clicker malfunction, is one of them.‐ United Press International

4/4 60% Visitor Q (Bijitâ Q) (2002) This movie is sick, sicker and sickest. I loved it, of course.‐ United Press International

4/4 52% Scarlet Diva (2000) I definitely want to watch it again. I'm not sure exactly what I saw the first time, but I loved it.‐ United Press International

2/4 No Score Yet Stakes (2002) One great thing about these vampires is that, when they DO finally die, they just sort of go up in a cloud of steam, saving hundreds of dollars in needless gore effects. My kinda movie.‐ United Press International

1.5/4 No Score Yet Nothing but one sex scene after another.‐ United Press International

2.5/4 No Score Yet Tail Sting (2001) If I had to guess, they were going for a combination of Ridley Scott's "Alien," Jack Arnold's "Creature from the Black Lagoon," and the Zucker Brothers "Airplane" -- and, by God, they succeeded!‐ United Press International

2.5/4 43% Inbred Rednecks (1998) Kind of horrifyingly bad at times, but in a way that grows on you until you actually LIKE these barfing brew-quaffing rubes.‐ United Press International

0/4 12% Halloween: Resurrection (2002) He comes, he kills, he fries, he stirs again. He's about as scary as Perry Como.‐ United Press International
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2016
1/4 No Score Yet A Girl, 3 Guys And A Gun (2001) It's beautifully shot, well staged, well acted -- and it's got that "independent film" vibe. But in the final analysis it is just a girl, three guys and a gun.‐ United Press International

2/4 No Score Yet Mari-Cookie and the Killer Tarantula in 8 Legs to Love You (2001) When Jess dubs his movies into English, he doesn't bother to get actual English actors. He uses thickly accented Spaniards who have taken a couple of Berlitz courses, and the result is that you never know exactly what's going on.‐ United Press International

4/4 69% Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy (2001) Not so much raunchy as sweet and poignant.‐ United Press International
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2016
2/4 No Score Yet Barrio Wars (2002) It's not exactly "Romeo and Juliet," and it's not exactly "West Side Story." It's more like Cheech and Chong's version of "Breakin' 2 Is Electric Boogaloo," with a synthetic hip-hop soundtrack.‐ United Press International
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2016
2.5/4 No Score Yet Unseen Evil (2002) The great thing about a horror movie called "Unseen Evil" is that you can save a fortune on special effects.‐ United Press International

2.5/4 43% Hell's Highway (2002) The acting is uneven, but the story does satisfy the first rule of drive-in movie-making: anybody can die at any moment.‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet Second to Die (2001) I'm a sucker for femme fatale erotic thrillers about gorgeous but devious women who murder their conniving and/or boring husbands for the insurance money.‐ United Press International

1/4 40% Men Cry Bullets (1999) I would love to see the test-audience response cards on this one. The top score would be, "Yes, I must put on a party dress and hang myself in the closet now."‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet 13 Seconds (2003) If Thomas can slow down his jarring quick-cuts -- he makes commercials and industrial films so he has the same problems with full-length narrative that Ridley Scott did in his early films -- he might just be on his way to a horror career.‐ United Press International

3/4 No Score Yet Delinquent (1995) All it is, is a pretty dang good two hours that will have you guessing right up till the end. That's worth something, right?‐ United Press International

No Score Yet Biohazardous (2003) Zombie Lite, New Jersey-style.‐ United Press International

2.5/4 No Score Yet Sure we've seen it before, but have we seen it with an extended outdoor party scene featuring rapping primates? I think not.‐ United Press International

56% I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman) (1978) It's about the strongest "Take Back the Night" statement ever made. She doesn't just take back the night. She takes back the night, the morning, the afternoon, and steals the clock while she's at it.‐ United Press International

50% Unfaithful (2002) This is a great movie, and so many of the things being written about it are just plain FACTUALLY wrong.‐ United Press International

2/4 43% Halloween III - Season of the Witch (1982) Producer Moustapha Akkad was trying to save the franchise after the B-movie retirement of Curtis, but this lame Invasion of the Body Snatchers rip-off just annoyed the faithful.‐ Joe Bob's Ultimate B Movie Guide
