As Nasty as I Wanna Be

Once again, Juniper spent the last few weeks of summer visiting family in the cool and verdant mountains, rather than sticking out the “Hell’s front porch” phase of the season here in the Chesapeake tidewater. So here’s another update heavily freighted with reviews of films she’d rather not think about (plus a couple less loathsome things we watched together after she got back):

 

Candyman (1992), in which some urban legends really are true, even when they really are just legends…

Entrails of a Virgin (1986), in which there are plenty of entrails, but precious few virgins to be found…

Grotesque (1988), in which you get three movies for the price of one, plus the disembodied conclusions to two more as a bonus…

The Killer Snakes (1974), in which the Shaw Brothers do Willard, and no animals weren’t harmed during the production of this film…

and…

The Saga of the Viking Women and Their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent (1957), in which it takes almost long to type the title as it does to watch the movie.

 

 

 

 

El Santo rules the wasteland-- and also 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting.

See Lee be he!

The Grand DuelLee Van Cleef definitely adds a lot of life to the spaghetti western The Grand Duel, and so does a script that adds a strong and atypical mystery angle.

Astronuts

Astro LocoWhile it makes a noble attempt to be a different kind of sci-fi movie on a limited budget, the Australian movie Astro Loco ultimately doesn’t successfully reach its goals.

…except for mine

After Diff'rent Strokes: When The Laughter StoppedThe docudrama After Diff’rent Strokes: When The Laughter Stopped is incompetent, tasteless, sleazy, and cruel. In other words, I loved it a lot.
