Man and the Challenge

Rating: 2.2/5 (104 votes cast)

Man and the Challenge (1959)

Produced: Ivan Tors (Sea Hunt, Flipper)
Starring: George Nader
NBC Primetime, 1959 - 1960

WOW! A true slice of Americana. If TV is an indicator of where we are culturally and politically, then check out this unearthed prime-time gem and view our past through the kaleidoscope of now. The entire show was underwritten and sponsored by the Pharmaceutical Industry. The protagonist (A pipe smoking, white smocked Scientist) eagerly shoots up some sort of amphetamine concoction to give him the edge he needs to fight criminal...and by 'edge' we mean virtual super powers! Drug Cinema back when it was legit and heartily endorsed by the MAN!

Creatures the World Forgot

Rating: 2.2/5 (110 votes cast)

Creatures the World Forgot (1971)

Director: Don Chaffey
Starring: Julie Ege, Brian O'Shaughnessy, Tony Bonner, Robert John

It’s HOT! It’s HAMMER! It's FORGOT!...um...oh YEA, and it's cave people era...that's really all you need to know, practically, right? Well, Yea and No--it IS a Caveman film...and not even the fifth one made at this point...but there are Alien Astronout-ish villains...and it's fucking Hammer right? And, Jesus, Julie Ege is pretty damn hot...hot enough to make you forget about all those science books. But does anyone want us to mention how well made, paced, shot and edited this movie is--even without the inclusion of Carolyn Munro? Well do you, MR. TECHNOREALISTICACCURACYDINOSAURSVSHUMANSNEVERHAPPENEDINEEDMYMOMMY???? guy...yea, we thought so...

Stunt Rock

Rating: 2.3/5 (100 votes cast)

Stunt Rock (1978)

Director: Brian Trenchard-Smith
Starring: Grant Page,Monique van de Ven, Sorcery

If we had to pick one movie to take with us to a deserted island....a movie that we would watch over and over again.....ad nauseam....it would, without a shadow of a doubt, be Stunt Rock! Fuck man, Sorcery is one formidable fucking ROCK MACHINE!

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: Stunt Rock


Something Evil

Rating: 2.6/5 (108 votes cast)

Something Evil (1972)

Director: Steven Spielberg
Starring: Sandy Dennis, Darren McGavin, Ralph Bellamy, Johnny Whitaker

Another outstanding effort from a young Steven Spielberg. A familiar cast, featuring the always awesome Darrin McGavin, become involved with a satanically possessed farmhouse. Wacky hijinks indeed ensue! Spielberg was on fire in his youth and its refreshing to see him take on the occult! This copy was lovingly restored from few sources included adding in original commercials! Godspeed you - whoever you are!!!! We could have sworn Johnny Whitaker was the 'bonk on the head' kid from Star Trek....but apparently that was Michael J Pollard...Apologies to both and we still love Sigmund and the Sea Monster!

The Bamboo Saucer

Rating: 2.3/5 (95 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!!!

Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs

Rating: 2.2/5 (111 votes cast)

Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs (1966)

Italy
aka Spie vengono dal semifreddo, Dr. Goldfoot and the 'S' Bombs, The Spy Came from the Semi-Cold
Director: Mario Bava
Starring: Vincent Price, Fabian, Franco Franchi, Ciccio Ingrassia

What happens when legendary Italian director Mario Bava gets his big US break helming a sequel to a weird, not-so-successful-in-the-US Vincent Price sex comedy? Another realm Bava pioneered we suppose - the one of shit hot foreign directosr being sucked into the US film industry (Girlbombs was spec'd and financed by AIP although it was shot in Italy) only to be attached to some craven sequel or remake - a cycle thats practically de riguer these days. Nonetheless, this film was wiped off the map for being too weird by studio standards....and although many consider it to be Bava's 'worst' film, we beg to differ.....it would seem there is a lot of subversion going on here that made people a little nervous.......lots of Generals being assassinated so Price can ultimately wage WWIII all wedged and shoe-horned in between a wacky euro-sex farce....yea, you gotta see it!

Humanoid

Rating: 2.3/5 (95 votes cast)

Humanoid (1979)

Italy
aka L'Umanoide
Director: Aldo Lado
Starring: Richard Kiel, Corinne Clery, Leonard Mann, Barbara Bach

Richard Kiel and Barbara Bach star in a Star Wars rip off...STOP THE PRESSES... OK, not really. If you are interested in this then there is some...well,...lets just say that we can't escape our roots, ehh? We just screened War of the Robots which pretty much disqualifies us from commenting......but, CMON guys, Star Crash delivered and in Turkey they at least tried...this is Gong Show and I'm just an atom in the big scheme of things...hello?

The Jesus Trip

Rating: 2.3/5 (75 votes cast)

The Jesus Trip (1971)

aka Under Hot Leather
Director: Russ Mayberry
Starring: Tippy Walker, Robert Porter, Billy Green, Carmen Argenziano

Wow--If Easy Rider represented 60's disenfranchisement...then, The Jesus Trip encapsulated the 70's downfall of ideals. Ending up as the epilogue to the movie it aped is no small compliment. This outstandingly shot movie follows a biker gang's struggles against heroin smuggling, the man, and the universe itself. Challenging, entertaining and waaaay better than it should have been--one of the more underrated films wiped from the American conscious. This film transcends the biker movie reputation completely after the genre was already dead... Director Russ Mayberry's only venture outside of TV fare...indicating a glitch within the system. If this description seems vague, it's only because you just need to watch it. Deep and uncompromising…

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: The Jesus Trip
