Ah… HorrorHound Weekend. It’s a place of wonders for me. Quite frankly, if it wasn’t for Vinegar Syndrome and Severin supplying the b-movie goodness, I could easily supply an entire year’s worth of B-Movie Enema articles by attending a single HorrorHound in either my hometown of Indianapolis or about an hour and half down the road in Cincinnati. HorrorHound and Days of the Dead are havens for gray market movies, indie horror, and even, yes, um, *cough* boot*cough*legs.
My point is, the last time I went to HorrorHound in March 2019 in Cincy, I came back with an embarrassingly large stack of movies. So, look out, 2020, B-Movie Enema will still be going strong. But for this week, we go back to 2018’s visit to Indy’s HorrorHound Weekend and a charming little table run by Scream Team Releasing. They are a little company that helps release indie horror flicks. They were selling and/or distributing The Barn (a movie I’m adding to my regular rotation of October horror to celebrate Halloween with), Dude Bro Party Massacre III, and Bong of the Living Dead. Those latter two, remember what I said about 2020…
They also shared space with this week’s feature, Pool Party Massacre. Continue reading “Pool Party Massacre (2017)”
It’s time to return to the world of one Mr. James Bickert.
Last year, I wrote about Amazon Hot Box right here on B-Movie Enema. Then, earlier this year, I named it one of the best movies I saw in 2018 on the podcast I co-host, Film Seizure. I promised I’d return to the indie filmmaker and that leads us to this week’s feature about a reanimated outlaw biker being chased by a grenade-tossing femme fatale (among other things I will get to throughout the article) – Frankenstein Created Bikers.
That name alone is freakin’ sweet, ain’t it? This movie reunites several who participated in Amazon Hot Box. Not only is it a Jimmy Bickert flick, but it also stars Jett Bryant and the incredibly lovely duo of Tristan Risk and Ellie Church. But wait! There’s more! This movie also features Alison Maier from Space Babes from Outer Space as well as Joe Bob Briggs’ very own mail girl in a very brief scene doin’ her thing, Diana Prince (AKA Darcy).

After Blue March, I wasn’t exactly sure where to go for the next B-Movie Enema. I mean where do you go after you’ve watched five consecutive pornos from the 70s and 80s? Who or what should I feature that could possibly make you feel a little less sleazy about watching pornos for your movie review site?
Then it hit me – Brad motherfuckin’ Jones.
Yup, the Cinema Snob himself. Shit, that guy has seen waaaaaay more porn that I have. He might even argue that his entire career is owed greatly to the golden age of porn. Jones has made a handful of movies over the years – either as a writer or director or both. I could have looked at several of his credits – the hilarious Jesus, Bro! or some of his smaller budget movies like Disco or Paranoia. Ultimately, there really is only one thing I could possibly choose, the 2012 origin film of his most popular character, The Cinema Snob Movie. Continue reading “The Cinema Snob Movie (2012)”
Australia – the land of scary ass deadly spiders, nasty snakes, kangaroos that will probably kick you in the balls, koalas with chlamydia, and movies!
The land down under has given us lots of entertainment over the years like Russell Crowe, Yahoo Serious, OG Mad Max, Paul Hogan. You know, people you probably don’t really want to hang out with (though Yahoo Serious is probably cool). Since about the 70s or so, they have been pumping out a certain brand of movies too usually referred to as “ozploitation”. These movies started rolling out over the 70s and 80s after the R rating was introduced. There are some spectacular entries under the ozploitation banner too – Mad Max, Thirst, Dead End Drive-In, and Patrick to just name a few. Thirst, is a particular favorite of mine.
The Wikipedia page discussing and listing Ozploitation films lists this week’s feature, Sheborg (aka SheBorg Massacre) as one of the newer films in the subgenre. Continue reading “Sheborg (aka SheBorg Massacre, 2016)”
A few weeks ago, I had a big ol’ love fest over a little movie I picked up while I was at HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis this past August – Amazon Hot Box. It was a marvelous little love letter to the exploitation and women in prison movies of the 70s. It was brought to us by Work In Progress Films and writer/director James Bickert. It was such a lovely throwback to those bonkers movies of evil wardens, sexy prisoners, silly side plots that ultimately lead nowhere, and all the things that I love about exploitation cinema.
It’s time to do it again with another filmmaker who is associated with Work In Progress and James Bickert, Brian K. Williams. Here we have a good old fashioned story about buxom babes from beyond our world with a title that makes me giggle every time I say it (seriously, as my friend who had to hear me giggle every time she heard me say it at HorrorHound Weekend) – Space Babes from Outer Space! Continue reading “Space Babes from Outer Space (2017)”
In August, I attended HorrorHound Weekend in my hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. As a veteran of various comic conventions and previous HorrorHound shows, it’s an experience I love. Do I spend too much money? Oh, for sure. Is it a lot of walking around and looking at the same thing over and over as if I’m driving an IndyCar around the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Kind of. But what I enjoy can be summed up fairly easily by saying I enjoy the time with friends, buying stuff, and sometimes, sometimes, finding something new that I wouldn’t normally be aware of.
That brings me to a couple movies I’ll cover between now and the end of 2018 – Amazon Hot Box and Space Babes from Outer Space. The former being this week’s featured film. Continue reading “Amazon Hot Box (2018)”
Oh no… I may have pushed this luck with the kung fu and martial arts movies one week too far.
This… is Kung Fu Brother. You know you’re in troubling waters when the following things can be said about your movie:
1. There is a discrepancy in the release date: Amazon says 2016, IMDb says 2014.
2. IMDb’s cumulative score for the movie is a whopping 2.7/10
3. Ron Hall, star of Vampire Assassin, is in your movie. You can find reviews of this here and here.
4. The guy on your DVD cover looks like he just literally lept out of the N64 game Goldeneye and is kicking you with his gross bare foot. Continue reading “Kung Fu Brother (2016)”
I’m gonna guess it doesn’t take too much to understand why I’m doing this movie, but, nonetheless, this week’s B-Movie Enema is a little 2014 “comedy” I found on Amazon Prime Video called After School Massacre.
I mean, the cover’s got the word “massacre” in the title. There’s a bloody knife. It’s got a shitty tagline of “Some students just don’t make the grade.” “After school” takes me back to the cheesy, but still classic, ABC Afterschool Specials that taught me the dangers of strangers and drugs and pregnancy. It looks like the killer committing the titular massacre is hiding under a bath towel… Or, wait, I guess he’s under the bed. Continue reading “After School Massacre (2014)”
