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? They should really check out this bit of absolute insanity, one of the last all practical effects films, which is literally an auteur moment from the pure id of Dan Aykroyd. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uOBF6r040U Nothing but… Continue reading Nothing but Trouble (1991)

Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead (1991)

Before directing movies like Mr. Holland's Opus, The Mighty Ducks, the live action 101 Dalmatians, Rock Star and Life or Something Like It, Stephen Herek was behind movies like Critters, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and this film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTrbkPwG3SM Sue Ellen Crandell (Christina Applegate) is 17 and stuck at home while her mother goes to Australia and her friends go to Europe.… Continue reading Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead (1991)

There’s Nothing Out There (1991)

Made before Scream, There's Nothing Out There satirizes the same horror movie cliches but goes even further, presenting a story where some of the characters are aware that they're in a movie, even using a boom mic to swing away from the movie's amphibian monster. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfWt-FghKog Seven teens head up to a cabin on the lake for… Continue reading There’s Nothing Out There (1991)

WATCH THE SERIES: Beastmaster

If you had HBO (Hey, Beastmaster's On) or TBS (The Beastmaster Station) in the 1990's, then you're probably excited to read this. The Beastmaster series of three films ran pretty much non-stop on those channels, even if the first movie wasn't a success. Just like Phantasm, Beastmaster came from the mind of Don Coscarelli. While he was only involved… Continue reading WATCH THE SERIES: Beastmaster

Prom Night IV: Deliver Us From Evil (1991)

Those Canadians -- they've made four Prom Night films, starting with, well, Prom Night, where Jamie Lee Curtis confronts disco dancing and a murder in the past. Then there's the utterly insane Prom Night 2: Hello Mary Lou, where a former prom queen comes back to tempt and murder the children of her classmates. And then there's Prom Night… Continue reading Prom Night IV: Deliver Us From Evil (1991)

WATCH THE SERIES: A Nightmare on Elm Street part two

In our last post, we got into the origin of the Nightmare on Elm Street films. Now, sadly, we start to discover why -- and when -- the series started to go downhill. A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child - 1989 What can you say about a movie where the director, Stephen Hopkins (Predator… Continue reading WATCH THE SERIES: A Nightmare on Elm Street part two

Wizards of the Demon Sword (1991)

My search for new movies leads me many places. Sometimes, you see the names Russ Tamblyn (Satan's Sadists) and Lyle Waggoner (Love Me Deadly) and you say, let's take a chance. And then you regret it in the way one regrets saying, "OK, just nine more slices of pizza." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUAefB9hiM8 Lord Khoura (Waggoner) and Ulric… Continue reading Wizards of the Demon Sword (1991)
