B-Movie Review: KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park

KISS Meets the Phantom Of The Park

Beavis’s Movie Memories Ho – Ley – Crap! Those are the words I uttered when I watched this movie about 5 years ago with the NoFadz crew. There were quite a few of us watching online that Saturday night who started to slowly realize we had seen this before. Then it came to us… We saw it on a very special night in 1978 when every teenager in the country sat in front of a radiating tube waiting to see the coolest band ever, KISS! You have to remember that in 1978 there was no internet or MTV or anything … Continue reading

B-Movie Review: GETEVEN (Road to Revenge)

Road To Revenge (Get Even) - B Movie

Beavis’s Movie Memories Road To Revenge (also known as GETEVEN and Champagne and Bullets but should have been titled Mid-Life Crisis) is a 1993 movie that was written, directed, financed, and starring John De Hart, Wings Hauser, and Pamela Bryant (A Playboy model who sadly left us in 2010) . It follows a long tradition of films made by people whose friends told them, “Nobody can make a worse movie than Ed Wood.” To which they reply, “Hold my beer!” The movie opens with LAPD Captain Normad, Huck (Wings Hauser), and Rick (John De Hart) taking down a trailer of … Continue reading

Real Life Imitating B-Movies

Think a plot device in your favorite B-Movie is a little far fetched? Wait until the technology catches up and you might be surprised! One of the staples of good B-Movie watching is the 1986 video classic Chopping Mall. The premise of the movie is one that has been used time and time again in sci-fi movies… Robots run amok. It’s the story of a shopping mall that hires a security company to install robots that look a little bit like what you imagine Johnny 5’s older, less successful brother would look like. On what is to be their first … Continue reading

B-Movie Review: Chopping Mall

Chopping Mall - B Movie

Beavis’s Movie Memories Ah, Chopping Mall. A great slice of 80’s B-Movie nostalgia from Jim Wynorski starring Kelli Maroney (Fast Times At Ridgemont High) and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator). In the opening scene you get the feeling like you started the movie in the middle. It turns out it’s all part of a demonstration given by Secure-Tronics to the mall shop owners. The crowd seems less than enthusiastic. Angus Scrimm makes a brief appearance as audience participant and question asker’er Dr. Carrington. One couple (played by Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov) is not particularly impressed and make snarky comments and roll … Continue reading

B-Movie Review: They Call Me Macho Woman!

Beavis’s Movie Memories A few years ago I had the pleasure of viewing They Call Me Macho Woman (also released as Savage Instinct by Bottom Line Studios). Recently, I found it on Amazon Prime and if you look hard enough you’ll probably find it on other streaming services. It had all of the makings of a great B-Movie. Made in the late 80’s / early 90’s, check… Studio backed (Troma), check… Oh boy, this should be bad in a good way! Well, guess what? It was (kind of), but it was also one of the best examples of a good … Continue reading

B-Movie Review: Zombie 5 – Killing Birds

Zombie 5 - Killing Birds B Movie

Beavis’s Movie Memories Thank GOD this movie came out because there are SO MANY unanswered questions from Zombie 4: Who Gives A Shit. Now I can rest easy knowing I have closure after viewing the terrible story, abysmal plot-lines, and horrific dialog that makes this franchise complete. The movie starts out with a man breaking into a home and killing the man and woman, who are still sleeping. Apparently he has just returned from the war and it was his house, and having just caught his wife and some other guy in bed together, he decides to machete them up … Continue reading

Zap Rowsdower (Bruce J. Mitchell) Passes Away

Zap Rowsdower RIP

A sad day for B-Movie and Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans. Bruce J. Mitchell, who played Zap Rowsdower in the movie The Final Sacrifice, has sadly passed away. He did an interview a while back and talked about his experience during the making of the movie. He seemed like a really nice guy who appreciated his opportunity to be in a movie and still be known for it to this day thanks to a new generation finding this gem on such shows as MST3K. His service will be held at the Third Zeox Church in Manitoba.

Brief History Of B-Movie Hosting And Riffing

Well, here it is, a new PodCast that talks about the history of B-Movie hosting and riffing. Actually, this was done about a year ago but never uploaded to the show page. There’s plenty of links on the show’s page to check out some classic examples of riffing. LA Connection are still one of my favorites. Please leave a comment on the PodCast Page! Railing Kill’s Brief History Of B-Movie Riffing Hopefully, there will be more of these on a consistent basis.

B-Movie Review: Zombie 4 – After Death

Zombie 4 After Death - B Movie

Beavis’s Movie Memories In retrospect, I should have watched this movie before watching Zombie 5: Killing Birds because it would help explain absolutely nothing. This episode takes place on a deserted island, as opposed to Zombie 5 where the action takes place somewhere else, as evidenced by the fact there is a hospital, University, and a highway system. The movie starts out with a band of researchers who track down a local witch doctor on the island. Apparently, the researchers were unable to find a cure for the Witch Doctor’s wife and daughter fast enough and they died. There is … Continue reading

Sticky: My B-Movie Master List

In an attempt to document my ‘hobby’, I’ve started keeping a log of all of the B-Movies I’ve seen over the last several years. This list is incomplete and I will add to it as I find old chat / viewing logs and can determine the title. These of course do not include MST3K episodes. These were sought after and viewed on purpose. B-Movies viewed 2011 Bloodmoon Digital Prophet Planet of Dinosaurs Dracula vs Frankenstein Three Fantastic Supermen Omega Cop Karate Cop Invasion of the Bee Girls Rodentz Horror of the Blood Monsters Twister’s Revenge Transformations Crystal Ball Blood Orgy … Continue reading
