Creepozoids – 1987 – The cheesiest flick out there?

If you think the artwork on the cover looks cheesy, think again! The film itself is far cheesier than the cover art give it credit for. But that’s the whole point of Creepozoids. You can just taste the title. So fantastic! and the monster are rubber fetishism extreme! I kind of love these premiss. Because if this was made to look good and the acting was Oscars material it wouldn’t be half as amazing. Then...

Witchtrap - 1989 - Finally on blu-ray

It was some months ago that Kevin Tenney himself revealed on Facebook that hit 1989 movie Witchtrap were to be released. As I remember it from my youth as one of the favorite occult movies it was like music to my ears. It turned out that it wasn’t just any release either. It was an upcoming bluray release that I didn’t want to miss. In fact I was ready to pay quite a lot for...

Kobra and the Lotus – Prevail I – 2017

I have heard Kobra and the Lotus before. As I recall it was a very present meeting with their previous album High Priestess. So when I saw another album was coming out I just had to check it out. It’s been a while so I don’t really have High Priestess in fresh memory but you shouldn’t compare anyway so it doesn’t matter. Sometimes I can’t help myself though and need to compare with everything. Prevail...

Grotesque - 1988 - low budget morality

I need to make a confession. I’m fascinated by Linda Blairs persona as an actress. Because, let’s be honest, she haven’t made a great performance since the Exorcist in 1973. But she has something that I can’t put my finger on. I enjoy the movies she’s been in. If they’re really low-budget so much the better. In Grotesque she doesn’t have a major part. It’s more like a supporting role or possibly a role just...

Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity – 1987

There’s nothing like a nice cheesy flick! And whoever says this isn’t cheesy is either a liar or a fool. From the very beginning of Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity this is a hilarious experience. From the very first spoken line you realize that these actresses weren’t chosen for their acting skills. On the contrary they have pretty nice bodies and there’s even scenes were they have to act topless. I think the challenge was...

Ghost Warrior 0

Ghost Warrior – 1984 – A frozen Samurai

I must admit that I never heard about this movie before. It was more or less a bonus when I ordered som other stuff. It seemed nice and I figured, what the heck?! So I got Ghost Warrior and started watching it. The beginning is set in feudal Japan and I was hoping for it to stay there. It didn’t though and I guess that’s the whole point of the movie. In a fight this...

Roger Moore passed away at age 89

When I grew up there was a constant debate on who was the “real” James Bond. At this time there were mainly two actors that had played the character. Roger Moore and Sean Connery. One of them was the “true” James Bond and the other was not. I was in Roger Moore’s team. Not necessarily because he was a better actor or anything but the movies were funnier. There were more humor in the Bond...

Alice Cooper – Love it to Death – 1971

In 1971 Alice Cooper finally started to get close to the sound that would put them on the map of rock n roll forever. There is still a couple of song on Love it to Death that are kind of psychedelic but there’s fewer of them than ever before. It’s obvious that the involvement of Bob Ezrin as producer was a real vitamin injection for the band. For me, this is where the true saga...

Rage of Honor – 1987 – Sho Kosugi is the King Ninja

The thing about referring to Sho Kosugi as a ninja on the cover is of course a way to market the movie. It’s the same for me. I mention Sho Kosugi and Ninja in the same sentence to try to get your attention. Did I succeed? The fact is the this movie has very little to do with ninjas as I see it. There are the occasional throwing star but that’s about it. There are...

Helix – White Lace & Black Leather – 1981

I think I first bought this album around 1985. On Vinyl of course! I still have it but I don’t think I ever got around to listen to it much. This was in the wake of the Helix hit song Rock You from the album Walkin’ the Razor’s Edge from 1984. Ut was kind of a huge hit in Sweden at the time. Therefore I needed to get more albums by Helix and White Lace &...
