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)”
It was only a matter of time before I would come right back to Roger Corman and his extensive library of films. I didn’t quite think it would only be two weeks. I also have been wanting to get back to some monster action too. I mean I guess I did have Devil’s Express, but was that really a monster movie or just a sweet ass kung fu movie? So, with that thought, it’s been since The Suckling several weeks ago that I’ve traveled to that sub-genre.
Why not marry the two things I’ve been wanting to explore deeper and look at a more contemporary Roger Corman monster movie??? Continue reading “Humanoids from the Deep (1980)”
Welcome back to yet another B-Movie Enema. I’ve been looking forward to talking about this one for a while.
Many times over the past couple years, I’ve mentioned the Roku channel Bizarre TV. When I first got my Roku, it was one of the very first channels I began to watch religiously for its streaming of, well, bizarre movies and horror shorts. Some of the movies shown there acted as inspiration for me to cover here – even if that channel was not the first place I ever saw the movie. Sadly, that channel has been on autopilot since October as the original operator of the channel passed away in January 2018. I still endeavor to cover movies I used to watch on the channel because it did a lot to inspire me to return to the blog after some time away from it.
This week’s feature, Cheerleader Camp, is one of those movies featured on BTV. Continue reading “Cheerleader Camp (1988)”
After last week’s Malibu High, a movie that is not at all as fun and lighthearted as the poster looked, I decided it’s time for me to actually go for something that is exactly what it appears.
Screwballs – “The nuts who always score!” I mean just look at that poster. The simple composition of a girl in her underwear running away from a dude in his boxers while he pulls the strap to her bra tells you exactly everything you need to know about this movie. Mainly that there will likely be lots and lots of sexual misconduct. And I’m gonna see boobs. But mostly the sexual misconduct. But even more mostly that I’m gonna see boobs. Continue reading “Screwballs (1983)”
Aw shit yeah octagons.
They tell us to stop our cars. They are used all over the place for shady fighting tournaments. They have eight, count ’em EIGHT, sides. You know why octagons are so fuckin’ badass?
Because they ain’t no squares, that’s why.
Then there’s Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris does not wear a condom – because there is no protection from Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris has counted to infinity – twice. They once made Chuck Norris brand toilet paper, but he wouldn’t take shit from anybody. The chief export of Chuck Norris is PAIN. Continue reading “The Octagon (1980)”
This week’s B-Movie Enema is being released in conjunction with the latest three-part episode extravaganza at Film Seizure!
That three-part extravaganza over there is for our original pilot episode in which we talked all about the first three Friday the 13th movies. So, with today being Saturday the 14th, and we talked about the first three movies of the Friday the 13th series…
Well, you get the picture.
Saturday the 14th was a relatively famous movie when I was a kid. It seemed to be on TV an awful lot and had recognizable faces in it. The star, Richard Benjamin, has sort of been featured here before as well as being known for being the protagonist in the original Westworld movie. He was not just an actor, but also a director. Just go back some months to find me talking about his My Stepmother Is an Alien. Here, he’s starring with his real life wife, Paula Prentiss, who was mostly known for being in the 1975 version of Get Out, The Stepford Wives. Continue reading “Saturday the 14th (1981)”
So here’s a bit of a rarity on B-Movie Enema – a movie I’m coming into practically blind.
I’ve watched the trailer for this week’s feature, Terror on Tour, and it looks pretty shitty. I think it’s supposed to be some sort of KISS band with guys in white and black makeup in tight clothes and capes and shit who begin to kill people or something? No, maybe it’s like an early version of Insane Clown Posse or something because they kinda look like clowns? All I know is that you know you’re in good hands when there is no such thing as a poster for the movie. All you got is a VHS cover, and it’s a Media VHS release no less.
