Fatal Bond (1991)

We've already covered one Australian Linda Blair movie, 1990's Deep Sleep. Obviously, the next stage in our quest to covered every single movie she's ever been in would eventually bring us to another Down Under Blair effort. Being a completist is kind of like that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B69JvdcdPVc Joe Martinez is a violent drifter who only really loves… Continue reading Fatal Bond (1991)

Nothing but Trouble (1991)

You know how people always complain that Hollywood isn't doing anything new, constantly churning out CGI-filled remakes and comic book movies?
