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

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

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
