Oasis of the Zombies (1981)

Happy Halloween!

When I first thought about what it would be that I would watch for the Halloween edition of B-Movie Enema, I had some classics.  I thought about something classic like The Creature from the Black Lagoon or The Giant Claw.  I even thought about doing one of the Friday the 13th movies.

But then, I was all like, “Fuck it…  Oasis of the Zombies.”

Here we have a French production about some treasure hunters in a film by Jesus Franco.  It’s got Nazi zombies, so how can it be bad?  (That’s not me setting up the fact that it’s likely bad.  I’m being serious, how bad can a movie featuring Nazi zombies be bad???)

Messiah of Evil (1973)

From the Makers of American Graffiti…

I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking, “You dumb, silly bastard, you.  No way the makers of a fine, upstanding movie like American Graffiti would make something like this.”  Think again, dear readers.

From the writing team of Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz comes 1973’s Messiah of Evil.  Huyck and Katz collaborated a few times, and, yes, one was the aforementioned American Graffiti.  Another they worked on was a little known film by the title of Howard the Duck, but that’s for another time.  Oh, I promise you that is for another time.

My Mom’s a Werewolf (1989)

Think back to the Summer of 1989.  What comes to mind?  Batman?  Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?  Ghostbusters II?  How about Star Trek V or even UHF?

For me, hands down, it’s the topic of this week’s enema – My Mom’s a Werewolf.

Just kidding.  I only vaguely remember this moving being out there.  I mostly remember seeing it at video stores.  The box always brought to mind things like Teen Wolf or The Graduate.  Really, if you think about it, the 80s were obsessed with werewolves.  You had things like The Howling, Wolfen, and the aforementioned Teen Wolf movies.  However, this one kinda slipped under the radar.  Like I said, I definitely remember seeing this at video stores.  I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if this movie played a big part in why I like legs.  Wait.  Maybe that’s the box to The Graduate that I’m thinking about.  Let’s just move on.

The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave (1971)

The worms are waiting!

Okay, for this week’s B-Movie Enema, I have another horror film from the 1970s.  Now, unlike last week’s, all the characters are supposedly English, but like last week’s cleansing, we have yet another Italian flick.  However, There aren’t many other names this movie goes by other than the Italian or English translations.

From the 50-Movie Pure Terror DVD Set, our synopsis for this week reads: “An unstable English Lord, who mourns his deceased wife, frequents clubs looking for redheaded women to take to his home for bizarre activities.  He eventually meets and marries a woman he hopes will drive away the demons from his tortured mind.  Unfortunately, other forces are at work to drive the nobleman insane and spread terror throughout the household.”
