Sonar Spaceship signals meet underwear commercial....the mind truly boggles on this one. The film that taught Allen Quartermain how to steal. Way better than any official comic movie of the time...except *COUGH* Superman....still, perhaps, the funniest movie ever....about a 46th degree super "hero" - midgets and acid are sorely missing but at least the bar fight scene put Hal Needham to shame!

Perhaps the most elusive ribbon of film in the history of cinema is "Frankenstein." Not the 1931 masterpiece with Boris Karloff, but the first screen adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel, produced in 1910 by Thomas Edison. Censored in its day and considered lost for decades, the film still exists in a private collection but is still a great distance from returning to the screen.
Dircetor: William Grefe
Starring: Chris Robinson, Alex Rocco, Steve Alaimo, Susan Carroll
OK - its a little bit Born Loser-y and a lot Williard-y with snakes...BUT, its directed by our favorite BAD ASS William Grefe who helmed legendary HEX FAVORITES Impulse and Whiskey Mountain. A tight nature revenge film with a seriously hard R edge......Grefe was doing Jaws way before he actually did a JAWS ripoff - Mako: Jaws of Death! Stanley contains lots of familiar 70's TV faces and some jaw dropping venomous death scenes that blew us all away.....This is the absolutely perfect film to show to friends with serious Ophidiophobia. Relentless!

Ok, it's hard to find any info on this one, it seems pretty homebrew...but the most elaborate damn homebrew we've ever seen! Another weird 80's thing where all these interesting mash ups--Logan's Run, Brave New World, Mad Max--suddenly turn into camouflaged guys duke-ing it out in Central America. Your taxpayer dollars were apparently stretched pretty thin in the propaganda deptartment during the 80's. Having said that, Death Run is the new Warriors! Long Live Death Run!
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!!!
Director: Buzz Kulik
Starring: Scott Jacoby, Pippa Scott, John Larch, Dabney Coleman, Kim Hunter
Bad Ronald's reputation speaks for itself....this is a true lost classic....a totally disturbing look into the people that get lost between the cracks and, well,....splinter and crack. Fantastic stalker in the house movie with the perfect setup and follow through - its tight and uber-tense....proving that television's old guard directors, such as Buzz Kulik, could still knock 'em outta the park.
This film has been released on DVD or otherwise. It is no longer available to download here but we highly recommend buying your own copy: Bad Ronald
aka Satan's Slave
Director: Sisworo Gautama Putra
***IN INDONESIAN - NO SUBTITLES***
If you're like us, you probably lie awake at night wondering what an Indonesian version of Phantasm would be like. Well, you can sleep well tonight, my friends because this is it...we give you Pengabdi Setan!
aka The Aberdeen Experiment
Director: William Malone
Starring: John Stinson, Diana Davidson, Jonathan David Moses, Toni Jannotta
Another competent Alien inspired man in a suit film from the early 80's...this one has the distinction of introducing the 'Syngenor' - a ghetto Giger rip-off that ended up being the sort of Robby the Robot of 80's trash cinema in that it popped up up in a ton of subsequent movies. Kudos to William Malone for not only gittin' 'er done - getting a 16MM film into drives-ins followed by a stand out video store presence was no easy task back then! - but for keeping everything nice and dark....seriously, how many monster movies continue to bathe their evil creations in cascade of light??? NO, you can't fix that in post.....

aka Express to Terror
Producer: Dan Curtis
Director: Dan Curtis
Starring: Broderick Crawford, George Hamilton, Steve Lawrence, Don Meredith, Stella Stevens
What do you get when you mix Dan Curtis with The Love Boat? A really weird Love Boat.... and instead of a boat, its set on a futuristic cross country luxury train...and instead of love there is murder!!! With its huge ensemble casts and slightly askew take - this would have been preferable to the coke frosted boat series had it come first. As par for the course with 70s TV, there is alot of drinking, sex, disco and satin......Curtis - a legendary curmudgeon - left a trail of epic tales regarding this pilot. 24 hour work shifts, mass firings and budget spirals...still, it all ultimately works when viewed outside the shadow of television circa 1979.
Norliss Tapes or Night Stalker this ain't....but its a worthwhile look at one of our favorite television prodigy's 70s swansong.

Umberto Lenzi's over the top, debaucherous ode to drugs, sex, blackmail and torture! Rich people mind fucking each other over for kicks. A grim film if there ever was one...what goes around never quite comes around and the viewer will just feel shamed and dirty! Eurotrash of the first order! Umberto Lenzi made another film titled Paranoia just 2 years later that even starred much the same cast. Make of that what you will, but rest assured this is Orgasm - UNCUT, the way it was meant to be - sleazy and beautiful!
