Oh boy… After last week’s utter debacle, I could certainly use a little British classiness to bounce back. Too bad it’s still an Asylum fuckfest abortion.
Sherlock Holmes, as a character, first appeared in print in 1887 and was an immediate success for author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I could spend a long time giving you more history about the character being one of the most famous detectives in all of history, and how many books he was in, and what have you, but I’ll save that for Wikipedia to tell you all about.

Round 2 of my month long battle against The Asylum, makers of crap and shit that I disdain since, like, I dunno… 2004 or something. I don’t care how long they’ve been at this. This time, I have a real offensive one: Atlantic Rim.
This is an instance where The Asylum simply took the title to a movie coming out (i.e. Pacific Rim), and modified it only slightly to give it a new title that cannot lead to a lawsuit against them, but, yet, still keep some sort of visual similarity to the movie it is ripping off.

You people suck. I mean it. You guys are real assholes.
A couple months ago, I put out the call to action for B-Movie Enema Facebook followers to vote for what my May 2017 theme was going to be. You had marvelous choices. You could have picked more 80s horror (I subscribe to an entire channel on YouTube that I wanted to pull from). You could have picked Cannon Films. You could have chosen the chance to revisit movies from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Hell, you could have picked to send me to the Sharknado series! Shark-fucking-nado!

This week’s B-Movie Enema is a bit of a treat – and the man who made it is fascinating. I’m going to take a look at Teenagers from Outer Space.
This film, made almost single-handily on a production level by Tom Graeff, is not exactly all that well-known. It didn’t receive particularly good reviews. It isn’t exactly remembered in any spectacular way. In fact, the most famous it probably ever got was appearing on a 1992 episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The Giant Claw.
I think it was only a matter of time before it came to this. This is one of those staples of bad movies. While maybe not be a Plan 9 or The Room, this was a movie that seemed to step up to the proverbial plate and swing hard for the fences only to pop the ball up right in front of the plate.
It’s like you should hear a sad trombone play every time you mention the title. It’s not without a couple of really great pieces – a great performance by Jeff Morrow (who was in This Island Earth), and a neat idea springing forth from actual scientific discovery through particle physics. However, you see that fuckin’ bird with those goofball eyes and doofy expression and everything just goes right into the crapper. This movie is universally hailed as one of the worst attempts ever at a sci-fi monster movie. Continue reading “The Giant Claw (1957)”
