Since I was off watching old movies all weekend, what better way to start a new week than with two of cinema’s greatest Monsters, Karloff and Price? This may be one of the most charming things I have ever seen. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster II – The Two of Us"
Great footage of Tor Johnson with Groucho Marx on You Bet Your Life.Read more "Halloween Bonus: Tor Johnson on You Bet Your Life"
Note: This was written for a roundtable on another site that fell through due to lack of outside response, so I have graciously stolen it back for your Halloween reading pleasure. With all the great older genre stuff that is turning up on Amazon Prime, it was suggested that everyone pick something suitably weird and […]Read more "Prime Cuts: The Black Sleep (1956)"
I am seeing the writing on the wall for Facebook. Their continued efforts to make the site user unfriendly, only showing you what their algorithm decides you will like in the order they will allow you to see it, and their now near-constant censorship and censuring of anyone who thinks non-approved thoughts mean that it […]Read more "I’m Now on MeWe"
Just a quick check-in today. The stars aligned to give me a fairly great week of in-theater B-Movie and odd TV watching and thought you might have some fun with it. Started off with the fantastic documentary That Guy Dick Miller (2014), currently available streaming on Amazon Prime. Miller was one of the most prolific […]Read more "What I’m Watching"
*NOTE* This has been sitting in my drafts folder 80% complete for 6 months. I got to a certain point, hit the wall and blanked on how to deal with the pain (the reason why will be obvious). Then I refused to post anything else because I hadn’t finished my annual B-Fest write up (as […]Read more "B-Fest 2019 – Crap and More Crap"
26 January 2018. The sun sets over Lake Michigan as a cool breeze ruffles the hair of the secretive creatures that scutter towards their lair for the next 24 hours. The time, 6:00 PM; the place, Norris Auditorium; and the event all these curiously masochistic examples of humanity have gathered for; B-Fest 2018 It Begins: […]Read more "B-Fest 2018 – Craptastic Voyage"
For those who have been paying attention, possible my very favorite craptastic 80’s B-Actioner is the absolutely bizarre Gene Simmons/John Stamos/Vanity vehicle Never Too Young to Die (no it’s not a vanity picture, it’s a Vanity picture). While I was off on my involuntary beach vacation (minus the ocean), the good folks at Shout Factory […]Read more "“Never Too Young To Die” Finally Gets Official DVD/Bluray Release"
Now I just have to make sure I have properly allowed for the time difference between California and Undisclosed Desert Location™ and that the new episodes are actually all available on Netflix for your streaming pleasure… My initial thoughts on the overall aesthetic and the first movie choice still stand, so I won’t reiterate here, […]Read more "Hurrah! Now I’m Allowed a Real Chat! (Warning: Massive MST3K Spoilers Ahead)"
Got preview access to the rest of Season Eleven today and my initial impression remains positive. The movie choices include some infamously notorious stinkers that are well suited for Jonah and the bots to take apart as well as some more obscure choices that I suspect will be new to even the most hardened MSTies.
