I remember watching this on Cinemax or USA Up All Night back when I
was growing up. It was pretty funny back then. New Concorde’s
attempt at a Gremlins type movie. Which they don’t try and hide,
with some references to it. The Munchies steal a Gremlin car (my mom
use to drive one until my older brothers rolled it when they were joy
riding in the country) in one scene, a headline about Gremlins in a
news paper. This movie is really hurt by the PG rating, If it had some
profanity and nudity it would be a lot more likeable. The closest we
come is a scene at the miniature golf course of some girls in miniskirts
bending over with their panties showing. A funny scene at a ice cream
parolor and the kids name is “Little Buddy Holly”. This
movie is so bad its good, not great but worth some laughs (your kids
might like it). What is a Munchie you might be asking? A alien creature
form another planet, or a dumb looking puppet? For fans of bad movies.
You gotta love the ‘80’s. The audio only comes out of one

1986 COLOR 77 MIN.
Another one from Jim Wynorski (Not of this Earth/The Return Of Swamp
Thing/Etc.) so you know theres gonna be some nude girls. Here we have
a glorious 4:3 Full frame version of the film, 2.0 Stereo, at least
it’s on dvd. The story a shopping mall buys some robots to be
the new security guards at a mall. Then the place gets hit by lightning
and the robots start killing people. A group of couples have a party
in a department store and are in for a little more fun then intended.
As they have to fight the kill bots (also the original title, which
makes more sense because the robots don’t do any chopping. But
Chopping Mall sounds better) for their lives. Stars Barbara Crampton
who was in Re-Animator, the blonde (the less attractive) girl from Night
of the Comets, and Russell Todd from Firday the 13th. Cameos by Dick
Miller, Marry Woronov, and Paul Bartel, hey it is a Corman produced
film. Some nice gore scenes. Like a girls head exploding. It was made
in the 80’s so expect cheesy music, dialogue, and acting. Not
a bad film if you don’t go in with too high of hopes. Extras -
Commentary with director and co-writer Jim Wynorski & writer Steve
Mitchell. Theatrical trailer. [Lions Gate]
REFORM SCHOOL GIRLS
1986 RATED R COLOR 94 MINS.
If this is what a reform school is like sign me up. Trashy girls hanging
out in skimpy underwear. Multiple shower scenes, cat fights, and cheesy
music. This movies is a parody of the women in prison films that we
all love. Stars Wendy O. Williams of the PLASMATICS, wait this is a
reform school for juveniles. Wendy sure don’t look like she’s
under eighteen years old. It is more of a comedy so its not a big deal.
A fun as hell scene of her driving a school bus smashing the front window
out, climbing up on the roof as the bus drives forward without a driver.
Pat Ast plays a very mean guard. Overall a good movie with a nice riot
Extras: 16x9, Audio commentary with Director & Humorist, Some funny
trailers, Still gallery, [Anchor Bay]
BURIAL GROUND : NIGHTS OF TERROR
1980 NOT RATED COLOR 85 MINS.
Another Italian zombie film! A professor unseals a crypt full of the
living dead. We get right into the action within the first five minutes.
A group a people held up in a mansion try and fend off the zombie attack.
The zombies are slow moving Luci Fulci style, also similar to the look
of Tombs of the Blind Dead. Mostly cheap looking but effective, some
look good. There’s a creepy looking kid (kinda like a young Dario
Argento) with scary eyes. The people just stand around and scream as
the zombies come toward them. Excessive close ups, bad use of music,
sound effects, and English dubbing. A couple nice scenes one of a beheading,
the best scene is when the kid turns into a zombie and bites his moms
nipple off. Not great but what did you expect? There are a lot better
zombie movies out there. Sex, gore, blood, and boring. The back of the
dvd says “..sure to attract a new legion of horror-crazed fans
and solidify the film’s reputation as the next ROCKY HORROR PICTURE
SHOW!” What the hell have the people over at Shriek Show been
smoking. This movie has nothing remotely like that movie, and is not
very good. More for those looking to complete their zombie film library.
Extras - Still Gallery, Trailers for other Shriek Show Dvds, Interviews.
RESIDENT EVIL - APOCALYPSE
2004 COLOR RATED R
R.E. 2 Delivers the goods with stripper zombies,
little kid zombies, and just flat out more zombies then the first one.
If you liked the first R.E. film you will like this one as well. The
basic plot is a group of people trapped in Raccoon city which is chock
full o’ zombies. Basically a hour and thirty five minutes of action.
The complaints I have are: Most of the fight scenes have quick cuts,
with out enough zombie close ups. The second complaint is why do we
need a wise cracking black guy? Saying bad one liners. This movie is
really hurt by this bad attempt to add some humor. Actually overall
it’s a good movie. The Nemesis is bad ass, It’s nice to
see a monster who isn’t a complete pussy. A couple scenes remind
me of the Dawn of the Dead remake, which was filmed around the same
time. A scene in a grave yard with zombies coming out of graves is left
unexplained. How did the corpses in the graves get infected? Your not
missing out on very much if you opt to wait for the dvd release which
is already slated for December. Try not to get bit by the zombie douchebags
in the theater seats next to you. Also look out for more zombie dogs,
and a brief appearance of Milla’s tits. www.re2.com
REINCARNATION OF ISABEL
Loads of cute topless girls. The
plot is hard to follow. The movie drags on a little in the middle. Excessive
amounts of flashbacks, do we need ten minutes of a witch burning at
the stake? Do you like Italian girls in miniskirts and tight shirts?,
rubber bats on strings, flashbacks, sacrifices, goofy looking cult dudes,
satan worship, witches, vampires, and cute girls chained up? Also a
long opening from Redemption, with British girls dressed in Nazi uniforms,
before they remove them. The movie is not bad, with good use of colored
lights and fog machines. Dig those 1970’s fashions. Reminds me
some of the Coffin Joe films from Brazil. Be on the look out for a real
dippy girl with big eyes. A nice Gothic feel with the castle setting,
more euro horror to add to your collection. In Italian w/ English subtitles.
The only extra is a trailer. Avaliable in a box set with Living Dead
Girl, and Night of the Hunted (a decent flick w/ the very attractive
Brigete Lahaie) AKA the Zombie Box. Which you can get for around $30.
The back has a line about “BUNK UPS”. What the hell is a
Bunk up? Any way not a bad film to waste a
little time on. [REDEMPTION/IMAGE]
