Saigon Commandos (1988)

Thanks to Paul Andolina, whose website is Wrestling with Film, for sending this to us! Every October since about 2014, I've participated in a friendly movie watching competition called the Halloween Horror Movie Marathon Madness. The first couple years I joined in I tried to stick to horror movies as much as possible. However since certain… Continue reading Saigon Commandos (1988)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 4: A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)

Day 4 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is Franchise Day. Pick something from any franchise that has four or more entries. Bonus points if it has a fast food eating scene in it - have it your way. There was no choice other than 1988's A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master. I bought… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 4: A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)

EVEN MORE FUCKED UP FUTURES: Empire of Ash (1988)

I'm going to tell you right now that this movie's poster is like the metric system that Canada -- this post-apocalyptic flick's country of origin -- uses. Whatever you plan on rating the film, double that and add thirty. That's how much better the poster is than the actual thing you're about to watch. You… Continue reading EVEN MORE FUCKED UP FUTURES: Empire of Ash (1988)

MARK GREGORY WEEK: Thunder 3 (1988)

It's time for our favorite Native American warrior, Thunder, to return. This time, he takes on a racist militia in Las Cruces, New Mexico. They've refused to pay the very specific amount of $53,000 for attacking and abusing him (yes, Thunder gets beat up again) after destroying his village. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iITtAfQaiQw If the promise of Mark… Continue reading MARK GREGORY WEEK: Thunder 3 (1988)

MARK GREGORY WEEK: Just a Damn Solder (1988)

Before Dr. Strange was in big time movies, he was in TV movies. There, he was played by Peter Hooten. Why am I telling you this? Because Pete is here to star with our man Mark Gregory today in Just a Damn Soldier. The story here is that Hooten's character gets together his mercenary pals to… Continue reading MARK GREGORY WEEK: Just a Damn Solder (1988)

MARK GREGORY WEEK: Tan Zan Ultimate Mission (1988)

Terrorists are making genetic experiments on kidnapped girls. And Professor Larson has a dream. That dream is probably your nightmare, as he wants to create a master race to rule the world. Luckily, some scientific organizations in Asia and Europe have hired a group of mercenaries to kill everyone. Yay! But wait! This movie is… Continue reading MARK GREGORY WEEK: Tan Zan Ultimate Mission (1988)

MARK GREGORY WEEK: Delta Force Commando (1988)

I thought that I had watched every Mark Gregory movie there was. I'd made it through 1990: The Bronx Warriors, Escape from the Bronx, Adam and Eve vs. the Cannibals and even Thunder. But now you're telling me that he's playing a terrorist who goes up against Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson in a movie… Continue reading MARK GREGORY WEEK: Delta Force Commando (1988)

Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988)

You know when they say that something is loosely based on something? I just read that this movie is loosely based on The Monkey's Paw. Sure, they both have wishes that go wrong, but I think the similarities stop there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VHcdmh6JwA Directed by David DeCoteau, who went on to bring us Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge, Puppet Master: Axis of… Continue reading Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988)

Many of the films in this series -- which are numbered and come in a slipcase that… Continue reading Bram Stoker’s Shadowbuilder (1988)
