“If they couldn’t get him easy… They got him hard…”
With a tagline like that, how could this NOT be featured on B-Movie Enema?!? This week’s feature, 1974’s The Single Girls, will open the book on two elements that I’m kind of surprised has taken me over 200 articles to finally get to:
- Ferd and Beverly Sebastian
- Claudia Jennings
And, if you ask me, this comes not a moment too soon. Continue reading “The Single Girls (1974)”
As I toasted last week… Here’s to 200 more!
We begin that march with something that was a part of an end. I have often talked about the importance of Bizarre TV, a Roku channel that ultimately brought me back to writing on this site and introduced me to many of the movies that I’ve covered over the last almost 4 years. Slaughterhouse Rock was one of the final six films that played for many months while the beloved creator of the channel, Mistress Rhonda, was battling a terminal illness. During that time, fans of the channel tuned in, day after day, holding onto the memory of the channel and Rhonda, but also hoping, maybe beyond hope, that the day would come that something new played and the channel would be reborn.
While that didn’t happen, from the ashes came Otherworlds TV. If you have a Roku, I can’t recommend that channel enough. It certainly captures the spirit of Bizarre TV. Continue reading “Slaughterhouse Rock (1988)”
Holy shit, guys and gals. It’s my 200th B-Movie Enema.
I’ll get to the more serious shit at the end of my look at this movie to try to sum up how it feels to be 200 enemas old. But I can say this – it doesn’t hurt nearly as much as you might think. In fact, I think I’m starting to like it.
So this week’s piece (of shit) is all about Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance. Frankly, I almost have to talk about this movie. Everyone in the world, for the past several years, have talked about Samurai Cop. It’s an infamous bad movie. However, if you come here each week to read about these goddamn movies, you know all about Samurai Cop. If nothing else, you’re aware of it or have seen clips from it. It’s Ed Wood famous. It’s mind-boggling in its structure and the way it plays out.
It’s simply glorious. Continue reading “Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance (2015)”
It’s another week here at B-Movie Enema and I think I worried I went too long before covering another Vinegar Syndrome release.
So I’m here to fix that with this week’s movie, Party Line! This 1988 flick had a provocative cover of a sexy girl in lingerie with a phone line wrapped around her leg and torso. It was a memorable movie cover to see in the suspense/thriller section of the video store. The movie basically plays to the 80s exploitation of sexy thrillers. This was perfected probably best in the 90s with movies like Basic Instinct, but these little indie flicks toyed with the idea of mixing sex with murder.
This flick features a rich brother and sister psycho combo. She lures men through a party line on the phone for her brother to kill them. You have Richard Hatch playing a detective who is going after the killers. And then there’s Richard Roundtree playing Hatch’s captain. Continue reading “Party Line (1988)”
It’s another Friday, so that means NEW B-MOVIE ENEMA DAY!
This week, I have something a little more recent and from a group I’ve come to greatly appreciate. The Sleeper is a 2012 slasher/thriller from Gamma Knife Films and Scream team Releasing. It was written and directed by Justin Russell. It’s meant to emulate the style of low budget slashers than ran wild after the release of 1978’s Halloween and 1980’s Friday the 13th.
Quite frankly, the 80s are in right now – in a BIG way. More on that shortly. First, though, let’s talk about Scream Team Releasing. Continue reading “The Sleeper (2012)”
Happy Bloody New Year (a few days late), my Enemaniacs!
You might be wondering, “Geoff, what’s up with all this festive cheer and shit?” Well, don’t worry, fellas and lady fellas… I just had to clear some slates before I got buried beneath a load of movies I always want to write about but don’t have a particularly perfect timing to do so. Besides, this does check a couple extra boxes for me:
- Another Vinegar Syndrome release
- Another Norman J. Warren joint
So yeah, as you might have picked up by reading this blog over the past couple years, I buy a TON of Vinegar Syndrome releases. They are a marvelous purveyor of cult classics, nearly forgotten gems, and exploitation. These are things I am particularly in favor of. So I had to help clear some of that backlog before I can get to some of the other finds I’ve picked up at various conventions and what have you. Continue reading “Bloody New Year (1987)”
Cannon Films… You son of a bitch!
It’s been a bit, Cannon. How have you been, you ol’ salty dog? Way back at the start of February, we went on a Hospital Massacre together. I thought I said something wrong to not see you for a while, but here you are to help me wrap up the year. You’d have almost thought that last week’s Christmas Evil would have been one of yours, but you have a much, much worse mov… er evil – New Year’s Evil!
Oh man… For about 3 years, I’ve wanted to talk about New Year’s Evil. It’s actually a movie I enjoy watching at the end of the year. Is it because it’s good? Nah. It’s because it’s actually really dumb and kind of pointless. But it’s a good mindless numbness I need as Christmas is over and the new year approaches. Continue reading “New Year’s Evil (1980)”
Ah… Religion, iconography, and moral panic. Welcome back to B-Movie Enema all you nutty, repressed, goofballs!
When coming to picking a movie that could tie into the Christmas holiday (as well as the general winter theme), I guess I could pick from several that the 80s and 90s offered up. However, I should probably just go one that was sort of at the forefront of some controversy right at the start of the raddest decade of them all – Christmas Evil.
I will try to frame this as best as I can because people get pretty silly over horror and have consistently over the years. I’ve mentioned before that satanic panic ran rampant over the late 70s and all throughout the 80s. Some of that still persists today over the things that were stigmatized during that era. But what was stigmatized and why? Continue reading “Christmas Evil (1980)”
