Barbarian Queen 2: The Empress Strikes Back (1990)

Lana Clarkson is back, but this sequel to Barbarian Queen is one in title only, as it's a completely different story. Here, she played Althalia, who goes from being a princess to leading peasants and an army of female fighters against Arkaris. That said, this is a Roger Corman produced film, so prepare for plenty of women… Continue reading Barbarian Queen 2: The Empress Strikes Back (1990)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Metamorphosis (1990)

You know what I miss? Italian ripoffs of successful movies. They just don't seem to happen anymore. Like this -- obviously, it's The Fly, but takes plenty of twists and turns. And oh yes -- it's directed by B&S About Movies favorite George Eastman! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dQXov518XU Gene LeBrock (Father Peter from La Casa 5/Beyond Darkness) plays Dr. Peter… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Metamorphosis (1990)

Night Killer (1990)

Say what you will about Claudio Fragrasso. From the films he co-wrote with his Rossella Drudi for Bruno Mattei, like Robowar, Zombi 3, Rats: Night of Terror, The Other Hell and Shocking Dark to the films he's either co-directed or directed, such as Scalps, Troll 2 and Beyond Darkness, he's created films that you can see as inept and strange films created by… Continue reading Night Killer (1990)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 28: Hardware (1990)

Day 28 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is 28. Home Invasions. Unwanted visitors can really make a mess out of things. I've always been a major favor of Richard Stanley, from his documentary The Otherworld to his attempt to direct The Island of Dr. Moreau and the documentary that ensued, Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 28: Hardware (1990)

Mirror, Mirror (1990)

I wasn't ready for Mirror, Mirror. I had no idea it'd grab me, thinking it was just another clone of The Craft. But nope. It's something else entirely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnpuIrHX6aU Megan Gordon (Rainbow Harvest) is the new girl in school, a shy and withdrawn goth who is taunted and treated like shit by everyone other than Nikki and… Continue reading Mirror, Mirror (1990)

Dead Sleep (1990)

At 3 AM, my mind works like this: "Sam, there is a movie that rips off Coma and has Linda Blair in it. We must not sleep. We must watch this." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqOxNhtpd7E Director Alec Mills only did one other film, Bloodmoon, but he was a camera guy and cinematographer on several Bond films like License to Kill and Moonraker.… Continue reading Dead Sleep (1990)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 5: Nightbreed (1999)

The Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge for today is 1 2 3 4 CLIVE. Clive Barker was born on October 5th. Celebrate any of his gruesome cinematic deeds. I decided to go with the unfairly maligned Nightbreed, a movie that I haven't seen since it played in theaters in 1990. Directed by Clive Barker and based on his 1988 novella… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 5: Nightbreed (1999)
