Look out, friends and fellow bad movie lovers - there’s a killer on the loose in the bayou, and he has it in for some inbred hicks! If that’s not enough for you, what if I told you the killer is a werewolf? Still not enough? All right, demanding consumer, how’s this for a hook: The killer is also left-handed! (One might say he’s a “southpaw,” so to speak.) David Janssen (The Fugitive) stars as the smalltown Sheriff who has to track the furry killer down even as he courts the sexiest senior citizen in Louisiana and protect the wrongfully accused wild dog population from the trigger happy yokels. Yes, all that and more in this 1972 made-for-TV “classic” Moon of the Wolf!
Join Film Is Pwn’s resident riffers Brian Alterman and Daniel Roos for this Nixon Administration-era cheesefest. You won’t believe some clueless studio executives let this cinematic gem slip into the public domain. But their loss is your video on demand gain – download the movie and commentary for one low, low price.
“Mutant” apparently means “Zombies”:
It’s a double-whammy — a SyFy Saturday night movie, from our pals at the Asylum! It’s American Warships, premeiring around the same time as that other movie Battleship hits theaters. What a coincidink!
I read this article from ABC News, and I’m relatively sure I travelled through time. I went to the Twilight Zone where I learned a valuable lesson about sharing. The article states in part:
The Pentagon was inundated with so many studies in 2010 that it commissioned a study to determine how much it cost to produce all those studies.
Now the Government Accountability Office has reviewed the Pentagon’s study and concluded in a report this week that it’s a flop. (continue reading…)
Some jazz to start off the week? Pat Metheny Group live, with Song for Bilbao.
. . . And it is geek heaven. I’m far too lazy to write a full-on review, but the Avengers is terrific, Summer entertainment. Loads of action, loads of laughs, and loads of full on nerd mark-out moments, most involving the Hulk. If you haven’t seen it, go!!!!! (continue reading…)
This is the poster for an upcoming Asylum film which features Bigfoot on Mount Rushmore — what could possibly go wrong?
I’m not posting much this week because I’m . . . . (continue reading…)
*This review appeared on our old, now defunct site Film.IsPwn.com and appeared in my non-selling book, Mega Roos vs. Giant Crappy Movies. I am scheduling it to re-post so there is some dandy, nice reading while I’m on vacation. Enjoy, won’t you? Then buy the book, for Pete’s sake!*
Brenda Starr (1989)
Starring: Brooke Shields, Timothy Dalton, Tony Peck, Jeffrey Tambor
Directed By: Robert Ellis Miller
With apologies to Jaws 4: The Revenge, which I called “the dumbest film ever made,” Brenda Starr is the dumbest movie ever made. This is not “you-can-see-the-monster’s-zipper” stupidity or “the-digital-monsters-look-cheaper-than-Howdy-Doody” terrible. Brenda Starr is “Let’s-Give-Chevy-Chase-A-Late-Night-Talkshow” caliber buffoonery from its very conception.
Brenda Starr is based on a long-running comic strip of the same name that I vaguely remember seeing many moons ago, when I actually got a newspaper and would turn to the funny pages for Calvin & Hobbes. (For you youngsters out there, newspapers are kind of like web sites on paper.) (continue reading…)
