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)”
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)”
Strap in, kids! It’s time to go back to Italy for some good ol’ fashioned, bonkers, what-the-fuck-did-I-just-watch horror. Back in October, I covered Demons from 1985. Turns out that movie became a little hit and got fans of its own all across the world. So, just one year later, a sequel had to happen.
And, so… It’s time to take a look at Demons 2!
Generally, I’d be a little concerned about a quick turnaround for a sequel. Shit. The second movie was literally released one year later in the same week as the first. I’ve mentioned it before with Zombie how quickly that was shot and released – the film was released within 3 calendar months of production beginning. So I know the Italians have it in them to just crank this shit out like it’s a goddamn factory owned by Henry Ford. Also, I kind of can’t totally throw this movie into the garbage pile straight away because Dario Argento is still producing and Lamberto Bava is directing. Continue reading “Demons 2 (1986)”
Alrighty… I haven’t yet had enough of demons and devils and shit. So let’s keep that rolling with this week’s feature – Faust: Love of the Damned.
What’s really interesting about this movie is that it’s directed by Brian Yuzna who’s been involved in several great horror movies of the 80s from Re-Animator to From Beyond to Society to… Honey, I Shrunk the Kids…?!? No shit? Huh. Well, he also produced Ticks, a movie I familiarized myself with a couple months back. Continue reading “Faust: Love of the Damned (2000)”
It’s another Friday, and another chance for me to talk about B-Movies.
This week’s is what most would consider a “mockbuster”. It’s an Italian and US co-production totally aping off the hugely successful 1973 horror movie, The Exorcist, called Beyond the Door. Well, it’s called that here. In Italy, it is called Who Are You? and in the UK, it was released under the title Devil Within Her – which sounds like a completely different type of movie. Continue reading “Beyond the Door (1974)”
Happy Halloween Eve! It’s that time of the year that B-Movie Enema does the Halloween special post. The last two years I did Halloween: Resurrection and Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Technically, both are listed with their theme months on this site’s category pages, but neither truly fit the actual month they appeared in. Halloween: Resurrection had no vampires nor did Halloween III technically have any recognizable slasher villains – just a damn dirty Irishman drunk on Celtic need to kill children.
Fuckin’ Irish. Continue reading “Night of the Demons (2009)”
We’re really getting to the real headliners of Nights of Demons Month for B-Movie Enema! I mean, how can I not? This week is the week I get to talk about the inspiration for the title of the entire theme month! Not only that, but it is one of my favorite horror movies as a kid.
Yup, it’s Kevin S. Tenney’s Night of the Demons.
With next week being Halloween proper, what better movie to talk about than a movie that told a 12 year old me what happens when adults (or possibly older teenagers) go off and party for Halloween in a scary house? On top of that, we’ve got a hot witchy spooky chick and Linnea Quigley putting lipstick on her boobs before literally shoving the lipstick into her boob. Continue reading “Night of the Demons (1988)”
See? I told you I’d get back to Italy before this month’s out.
This time, I’m looking at Demonia. It was directed by Lucio Fulci, who is often considered one of the better Italian horror directors. In fact, I’m itching to do his Zombie so look for that in the near(ish) future. Unfortunately, where Zombie is considered a really good movie, Demonia is often cited as one of Fulci’s weakest. And to be honest with you, despite the name invoking imagery of demons and various demonic stuff, the movie is a little more witchcraft, ghosts, and a touch of satanism as opposed to the other movies this month.
