Reviews of movies from my giant DVD tower, and more.

Night of the Blood Beast (1958)

Somebody get this damn thing offa me! Roger Corman and his brother Gene offer up this pre-Alien copycat, which stars an odd bird-creature that thirsts for… conversation?

Robot Monster (1953)

The movie that rivals Plan 9 from Outer Space as the worst of all time…or is it? An alien in a gorilla costume may have the answer.

Barracuda (1978)

You yell “Barracuda,” everybody says “huh, what?” I haven’t seen that many Jaws copycats, but I’ll go out on a limb and say this one is the worst.

Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2014)

One of the more entertaining and laugh-out-loud documentaries I’ve seen in recent years; the story of Cannon Films, purveyors of cheap, schlocky movies of the 1980s.
