Man from Atlantis - pilot (1977)

Director: Lee H. Katzin
Starring: Patrick Duffy, Belinda Montgomery, Dean Santoro, Ernie Smith, Art Lund, Victor Buono

70's TV is a magical thing around the Hex Catacombs--sure, the 50's were obscure and, yea, the 60's got a little weird...but the 70's! Network television mixed the hangover of 60's groovy with its newfound "let it snow" cocaine craziness to come up with shit all over the map!! This show was spawned from the new age craze--Atlantis, Bigfoot, UFOs et al.--in typical television style i.e., having nothing really to do with it after all! A pre-Dallas Patrick Duffy washes up on the beach. Scientists discover he has gills, fins and skin that turns into a wetsuit if he stays out of the water too long. Oh and he swims like a Mummenschanz performance. He ends up going ‘Atlanto a Mano’ with villain scientist Victor Buono which, you will swear, almost has to be a King Tut crossover from the Batman series...OK scratch that last one...grab a drink ‘cuz vintage TV rules!

Hell's Bloody Devils

Rating: 2.4/5 (114 votes cast)

Hell's Bloody Devils (1970)

aka Operation M., Smashing the Crime Syndicate, Swastika Savages, The Fakers
Director: Al Adamson
Starring: John Gabriel, Anne Randall, Broderick Crawford, Scott Brady

More Al Adamson and this time its one of his rarer and definitely more inspired works....Hell's Bloody Devils is a masterpiece of twisted and determined vision. Rumors fly as to how long this film was in production....movies and filmmakers like this are what fuel the modern day Jim Van Bebbers to provoke through chemistry fueled celluloid. You get the distinct feeling that Adamsom lived this shit while still holding it together enough to get to it, if you know what we mean....Outlaw Biker gang "The Bloody Devil’s", the FBI, and the remains of Hitler’s inner circle all collide in a shockwave of groovy, groovy destiny that will pop your little mind! Seriously – name another Nazi outlaw biker movie that actually contains real honest to god Nazi's? We really miss what was truly a golden age when maniac visionaries like Adamson could get a budget to pull this off – the craziest outlaw Nazi movie EVER!... ..Al Adamson is a classic provoker and a true rebel genius - we bow before Hells Bloody Devil's!!!!!!!!

Dark Places

Rating: 2.2/5 (105 votes cast)

Dark Places (1973)

Dircetor: Don Sharp
Starring: Christopher Lee, Joan Collins, Robert Hardy, Herbert Lom, Jane Birkin

What a great little haunted gem! Don Sharp - who directed the Hex's absolute favorite Horror Biker movie ever - Psychomania (see it immediately if you haven't…no seriously, we can wait...) - turns in a taught, stylish little thriller. Its an acting tour de force with Joan Collins, Cristopher Lee and Robert Hardy all turning in outstanding performances. Schemers abound in a house haunted by the invasive ghost of a mental patient...we know that doesn't exactly sound original, but trust us - this obscure, hard to find picture is worth the effort. The fun is in getting there! Egged into further obscurity in the 80's by the worst, most inappropriate VHS video box art ever--a lot of Dynasty fans must have been very perplexed... Turn the lights out and enjoy! ...and go watch Psychomania again when yer done - yea, that's a command!

The Bamboo Saucer

Rating: 2.3/5 (103 votes cast)

The Bamboo Saucer (1968)

aka Collision Course
Director: Frank Telford
Starring: Dan Duryea, John Ericson, Lois Nettleton, Bob Hastings, Vincent Beck

Wow – a holdover from 50's FATE magazine's racist "Asians are aliens" meme....if, at least in title only...while we normally take all of this very seriously, Bamboo Saucer has the distinct appearance of being the film that the '79 Airplane ripped off....sans disco jacket. You'll definitely see what we mean...(and that's no slag). As usual, drink up and wish you were watching this in the Vortex Room!...VIVA LA RED SCARE!!!

No Survivors, Please

Rating: 2.3/5 (96 votes cast)

No Survivors, Please (1964)

West Germany
aka Der Chef wünscht keine Zeugen
Director: Hans Albin, Peter Berneis
Starring: Maria Perschy, Robert Cunningham, Uwe Friedrichsen, Karen Blanguernon, Gustavo Rojo

Nothing really new about the duplicating of world leaders as the lynchpin of a world domination plot, but this sure is a fun take on the perennial plot-line. Vaporous aliens are taking over world leaders...and boy do they like to drink. Seriously, there is alot of drinking going on on this film - groovy age indeed! This film seems incredibly relevant with scenes of world leaders and industrialists whooping it up while worrying about "Word Peace breaking out!.....It must be stopped at all costs!!" These scenes feel as though they could be security cam footage from recent G8 Summits. Apparently, getting smashed helps put some perspective on the human condition, however, when cracks in the plot appear as some of the aliens start to feel envy for love and horniness. No Survivors, Please takes a while to get off the ground, but when it does, its a great mix of a solid, forward moving plot balanced with boozy, unintentional humor - all framed by very grim overtones and consequences....the sober Futureworld can't compare....

Mysteries from Beyond Earth

Rating: 2.4/5 (105 votes cast)

Mysteries from Beyond Earth (1975)

Director: George Gale
Narrator: Lawrence Dobkin

Weird Phenomena Documentaries...while always an exciting prospect at the Hex, there is always a bit pf apprehension prior to first screenings. The flood of these films at the height of the genre's popularity in the mid-70s lead to what some would call a large, gaping fissure in quality control. This is why we are proud to bring you Mysteries from Beyond Earth. This one stands out from the chaff--the sheer number of topics it covers prevents it from ever dragging on a technical level...but it also approaches all the subjects at hand with an earnest seriousness and appreciation. TV character actor extraordinaire Lawrence Dobkin (who also took a stab at Pontius Pilate with In Search of Historic Jesus) hosts the piece with a gravitas that makes you feel like you are part of a 2am gentleman's debate of the topics in the study with 25 year old Scotch and Cuban cigars. Telepathy & Psychokinesis, Bigfoot to Black Masses, UFOs & Atlantis, Kirlian Photography, Cloning, Cryonics...and that's just the beginning of this awesome film. Are we indeed the new Atlantis?

The Ransom

Rating: 2.4/5 (93 votes cast)

The Ransom (1977)

aka Maniac!, Assault on Paradise, The Town That Cried Terror Director: Richard Compton
Starring: Oliver Reed, Deborah Raffin, James Mitchum, Stuart Whitman, John Ireland, Paul Koslo

Another entry in our 'Visibly Drunk' series (See Wrath of God)......Welcome to our new favorite Oliver Reed oddity!! A rogue Native American is plucking off townsfolk (and cops!) with a high-powered hunting bow and demanding ransom from the towns feudal lord. Said plutocrat hires drunk Oliver Reed to take care o' bidness! We should mention that everyone else in the entire film (especially Stuart Whitman!!) looks incredibly hung over throughout. We can only fantasize about the wild after hours escapes Reed took the cast on every single night! Some mild - and sometimes mildly amusing - action, sex and plot twists keeps things humming along. The perfect film for all those no-drinking new years resolutions!
