Jim Wynorski returns to B-Movie Enema this week. And, to be completely and totally fair with everyone, I’m a bit of a fan. I don’t think it takes too much to understand why. Sure, he’s worked with Roger Corman on some of Corman’s less memorable 80s fare, but not only will Wynorski bring the camp and the fun…
He also brings the babes.
That’s exactly what we have here for you this week. The Lost Empire is a 1984 fantasy action movie with a lot of boobs and bullets and bo-blosions! This is what Andy Sedaris could be if he had the opportunity to release movies in theaters instead of late night Cinemax. Continue reading “The Lost Empire (1984)”
Here’s a movie that you’ve never heard of – Blue Vengeance. How do I know you haven’t heard of that? Well, because I hadn’t heard of it. I’m not going to say that I’m the end-all, be-all expert in weird and obscure movies – oh no, far from it. I’m just saying that before Jason Oliver, who I co-host a weekly podcast with called Film Seizure, brought it to my attention, and basically dropped it in my lap to watch, I was completely ignorant to what this movie is.
There’s no Wikipedia page for it. There is an IMDb page for this, but I’m guessing there’s a page on that site for my totally unauthorized biography movie made on a shitty, soundless Super-8 camera called Hey That Guy Over There Totally Shit His Pants! I just want to make it clear that I have indeed shit my pants a few times in life, but I haven’t in the last eight months so if you would kindly leave me alone, I’d greatly appreciate it.

We’re really getting to the real headliners of Nights of Demons Month for B-Movie Enema! I mean, how can I not? This week is the week I get to talk about the inspiration for the title of the entire theme month! Not only that, but it is one of my favorite horror movies as a kid.
Yup, it’s Kevin S. Tenney’s Night of the Demons.
With next week being Halloween proper, what better movie to talk about than a movie that told a 12 year old me what happens when adults (or possibly older teenagers) go off and party for Halloween in a scary house? On top of that, we’ve got a hot witchy spooky chick and Linnea Quigley putting lipstick on her boobs before literally shoving the lipstick into her boob. Continue reading “Night of the Demons (1988)”
You know what? It’s been a long time since I’ve watched a truly Italian horror flick for a B-Movie Enema. In the early days of the blog, I covered a couple Italian flicks like The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave and The Eerie Midnight Horror Show. I have seen a bunch of Italian (and other European) movies in my day, and I’m surprised it’s been since White Comanche in the summer of 2016 that I’ve returned to Europe’s boot.
Also, since this is October, it’s time for a new Halloween theme for B-Movie Enema! This year, I’m going for some good old fashioned demon action with this year’s Nights of Demons month! To kick off this theme, I am returning to Italy for the Lamberto Bava-directed, Dario Argento-produced Demons from 1985. This won’t be the only time we’ll visit Italy this month either, so look out for that. Continue reading “Demons (1985)”
This week’s B-Movie Enema comes from the dawn of the glorious decade known as the 1980s. It’s the focus of every soft rock radio station’s weekend format. It’s the predominating style of music on all mainstream movies’ soundtrack albums. It’s the decade I visit the most by far.
And because The Hearse is a 1980 horror movie, famed movie critic Roger Ebert called it an idiot plot movie. It’s his saying for a movie in which all the characters in the plot have to be idiots. Now, I’m not saying that Roger Ebert is a snob and grossly underestimates the average horror movie, but most horror movie fans like this movie. Probably because they are idiots and they really like idiot plots. Continue reading “The Hearse (1980)”
If I’m gonna do a bunch of Roger Corman movies, it is high time I return to the realm of the Great White North. So, here we are again with another Canadian horror movie. This also bring us back into the world of good ol’ fashioned rock and roll horror with demons and shit.
And Jon Mikl Thor. Let’s not forget Thor!
This is the second time I’ve gotten into some Thor with Zombie Nightmare being the first of these treasures of cinema. Like the treasures you pick out of your nose. These movies are boogers. Continue reading “Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare (1987)”
Ah, Gremlins. What a great movie, right?
Little monsters running around doing stuff. They start off cute and cuddly, but uh oh… You can”t get them wet! They multiply if they get wet! You can’t feed them after midnight! They turn into ugly, scary monsters when you do that! And you REALLY can’t let them work on their tans because sunlight kills them! That’s really bad!
I’m glad I get to talk about Gremlins (by the way, my all-time favorite Christmas movie), but I’m going to not watch that at all. Instead, I’m gonna be watching one of the Gremlins ripoffs that flooded video stores after it hit big in the mid 80s. Of course, there’s Critters, which I will get a shot at talking about at the end of the year over at Film Seizure (which is a podcast I co-host). Continue reading “Munchies (1987)”
There are few things about the 80s more true than the following:
1. Kids went to college.
2. Slasher movies happened – sometimes at colleges.
The topic of this week’s B-Movie Enema is the 1984 slasher flick, Splatter University. However, it’s not really 1984. The film was initially filmed in 1981. When the runtime was only 65 minutes, they went back and filmed 13 more minutes in 1982. So, really I guess this movie has three potential years of release.
And the movie REALLY struggles with the dimension of time – more on that later. Continue reading “Splatter University (1984)”
