I mean, if you want me to tell you about the Raped By an Angel series, Prfsnl, I can.

I didn't see them but it's reminding me of the Nikkatsu Roman Porno films which have the most ridiculous titles

I rewatched Hal Hartley's Trust.

I thought I was gonna hate it based on the first 10-15 minutes, but then everything clicked. It's a strange combination. It's so detached from reality. Somehow so deadpan yet exaggerated, but in the end it still elicits a lot of emotion and is so sincere.

I watched the only home release for what is considered Canada's first gore film, The Corpse Eaters:

The Corpse Eaters


While I found it messy and poorly plotted, I'm struck by how much this could have been a fantastic start to a long horror career from the writer/producer if only he hadn't been screwed by a distributor out to fiddle with his taxes.

The Corpse Eaters is a movie about zombies, but the far more interesting tale is what happened around its creation, disappearance, and subsequent reemergence as a title that should be celebrated as a small benchmark in Canadian cinema.

Watched Robot Jox for the first time. It's good, shitty fun. It tries to tackle a lot of different ideas and doesn't really give any of them appropriate attention (including special effects), but it does manage to be entertaining, so I guess that's what really counts.

I've had on my watch list for a while. Heard it was ridiculous in the best way possible. With your positive opinion of it I'll probably catch it sooner.

And back I go to my normal grind....

One Dark Night

Image

The bad-ass girl's clique at school is auditioning a new member. Her final task of acceptance is to spend the night in the towns mausoleum. But the other girls really aren't all that fond of her anyway, so they intend to torment her all night with a series of pranks. Unfortunately for them, they've picked a bad night for their little initiation....

I'd heard about this one some time ago, but gave up trying to find it around the same time because there didn't seem to be any decent copies to watch. So color me surprised to find out that it got a 4k remaster. This one is kinda cheesy, but it also ended up being amusingly charming in a "most of this isn't all that terrifying" sort of way. Hell, even the 'villains' end up being pretty mellow for the most part. I mean, the puppet for the 'big bad' is wearing a Christopher Walken's mask, and the leader of the "bad-ass" clique uses insults like "Nerdle brain" for gods sakes. If it weren't for the rather gory ending and the drug usage, I'd say it'd be a fun kids horror film. Still ends up being a pretty chill 80s horror outing though. I quite liked it.

Following up the previous Doctor Who film, we now see Peter Cushing's Doctor Who travel to the year 2150 with his granddaughter and niece with a policeman in tow who mistook TARDIS for an actual Police Box. Here, the Daleks have invaded and enslaved humanity and it's up to Doctor Who and his companions to help a resistance force take down the mechanical terrors from the planet Skaro.

Easily a better film, with tighter pacing and more thrills and action.

Nothing in Doctor Who exists in its own continuity. Everything can be retconned into the series now, and I would be delighted to see the show runners work in Peter Cushing as an alternative Doctor or:



These films are not canon though. They were made on the cheap to cash in on Dalek fever back in the mid-sixties. This isn't the Doctor, Cushing is playing a human called Dr Who. There is a passing mention in some book or another but the BBC doesn't have the rights to these films.
