Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)

Oh boy, Geoffrey… You’ve really stepped in it this time.

Welcome to B-Movie Enema. We’re glad you’re here. It’s October and that means the month of spooks and ghouls and vampires and the exact girls at Walmart you expect to be considering which sexy version of a totally unsexy thing to wear as a costume has dawned. This is our favorite month around here and there’s a deep, deep history between this site and Halloween. Let me explain!

B-Movie Enema was born on October 3, 2014. Those first five articles were all horror or monster themed to celebrate October. While 2015 was a complete wash, whenever there’s been B-Movie Enema, there has been an October theme (of sorts), and a special Halloween article. 2021 is no different! I’m getting back to a series I first covered back in May. I hated it. Bad. But I made the promise to you, my dear readers, and myself, that I would finish this series and I guess I decided that the perfect time was to ruin my favorite month of the year.

So, here we are. 2004’s Resident: Apocalypse is kicking off Resident Evil Sequel Month! And I hate it!

Loose Screws: Screwballs II (1985)

A few years back, I covered the very funny boner comedy Screwballs. It’s obvious that the type of movie that was is not something that will play well at all today, but it doesn’t excuse the early 80s sex type jokes from being funny. It’s juvenile. It’s kind of gross. It’s funny.

I’m sure, as we take a look at this week’s movie, the sequel Screwballs II (also known as both Loose Screws and Loose Screws: Screwballs II), the two years between the movies will give the series a chance to mature, right? Uh… Right?

Carny (1980)

One look at the trio of stars that grace the promotional materials for this movie, and you might think that I chose this for B-Movie Enema because that’s Gary fucking Busey in clown makeup. If not that, maybe it’s burlesque dancer Jodie Foster. Both of those are good choices, but, alas, I chose Carny for one reason…

It’s my fuckin’ blog and I chose what I want.

Seriously. Get off my back. I want to watch a movie with good, non-weirdo Gary Busey playing a carnival barking con man and a young sexy Jodie Foster exotic dancing. I don’t know what the fuck you think you have to say that is any better of an idea. To be honest, I’ve wanted to do either this or Bugsy Malone for a long time on the blog. I really have no idea why. Bugsy Malone is easy to explain because it’s a kid mobster musical movie. That screams fun to me. Carny… Well, this one seemed a little more serious. A little more like it maybe has something to do with these young, talented actors.

Moonshine County Express (1977)

This is a bit of a wonderful confluence of things B-Movie Enema likes an awful lot. Moonshine County Express was a New World Pictures release, so that brings Roger Corman to us. Next, Claudia Jennings is in this and it’s generally accepted as one of her finest roles in her all too brief career. Finally, it’s the long awaited return of website girlfriend Candice Rialson.

That trio, and, frankly, those two lovely ladies alone, would be something worth celebrating. However, there are other facets to this movie that is quite notable. First, this stars the recently departed John Saxon. He passed away in July of 2020 and was laid to rest in Seattle in the same cemetery as Bruce and Brandon Lee. He had decades of film roles that included being in Enter the Dragon with Bruce Lee, starring in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, and, of course, playing the werewolf in My Mom’s a Werewolf. He was a bad ass.

Blood Sisters (1987)

What up, a-holes? It’s a new week and a new article from everyone’s favorite movie blog, B-Movie Enema! This week, Roberta Findlay returns with her 1987 horror-thriller Blood Sisters. What’s the big deal about that? Well, Findlay is one of a handful of female exploitation horror directors that were known from the 70s and 80s. While many worked for Robert Corman, Findlay actually worked more closely with her husband, Michael Findlay.

Michael Findlay was part of an underground movement on the east coast of directors who worked on early slasher films that were crude and incredibly violent. He married Roberta and she often worked as his cinematographer and directed films on her own as well. The couple met and befriended George Weiss, the producer of Ed Wood’s infamous Glen or Glenda. He suggested they continued down the path of violent sexploitation.

They did, however, while Michael continued to pursue violent sexploitation slashers, Roberta also would dabble quite a bit in both horror and porno. Michael would ultimately be killed in a terrible helicopter accident in which he was waiting to board a helicopter on top of the Pan Am building in 1977. The chopper turned over and the blades hit him and a couple other passengers waiting to get on board. The ghastly news report revealed that he was “literally cut to pieces” but the truth was that he only had deep lacerations that led to his death.
