For folks that think all Bs must be genre films, I offer up this 62 minute Monogram cheapie, designed to fill the bottom half of double bill alongside something much more artistic from one of the majors. It caught my eye for combining two of my favorite things, murder mysteries and cruise ships (OK, technically […]Read more "Jane’s Quick Take on: Mystery Liner (1934)"
But I might be off on a bad movie related adventure to share, sometime after I get back. Have a fabulous day of rest, more monsters tomorrow.Read more "A Day off from Monsters"
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.

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. […]Read more "More New MST3K Thoughts. Nope, No Spoilers, I Promised Joel. "
For any B Fest fans out there, long time attendee Tim who distributes the annual ‘soundtrack’ CDs to all and sundry could use a little help keeping the tradition going for B Fest 2017. My first year as an attendee he came up to me out of nowhere and presented me with all of the […]Read more "B Fest Fans – Help Keep a Tradition Alive"
