Starcrash (1978) Starcrash (1978)
More insanity and wackiness from our friends in Italy. This Star Wars rip-off stars the beautiful Caroline Munro and the not-so-beautiful David Hasselhoff...Oh, well, you can't win them all.
Double Agent 73 (1974) Double Agent 73 (1974)
Nobody wins in this Dorish Wishman grind-house no-budget production starring everybody's favorite top-heavy actress: Chesty Morgan. It's all pain, pain, pain.
Destroy All Planets (1968) Destroy All Planets (1968)
Just when you thought you couldn't trip out any Gamera, the flying, fire-breathing turtle.
Squirm (1976) Squirm (1976)
Proud to brush the dirt off this piece of crap film for the B-Movie Extermination Roundtable!.

Dino-Riders (1988) Dino-Riders (1988)
Part of an on-going project to dig deeper into goofy 1980's cartoons that I loved so much.
Class of Nuke Class of Nuke 'Em High (1986)
"Back to School" trash classic from New Jersey's infamous Troma Film Productions...If you've never heard of them then you don't know what you're missing... Punks, dope, blood, and a Monster. If you don't expect much more than that then you'll be in good shape.

Pathetic aliens trying to invade Earth. You gonna invade US?! Getouddahere! What a bunch of maroons. We send them packing with our merciless reviews:

The Galaxy Invader (Dennis Grisbeck)

UFO: Target Earth (Sean Ledden)

Battlefield Earth (Karl Hoegle)

Godzilla: Final Wars (Scot Nolan)

Cloverfield (2008) Cloverfield (2008)
Thanks to Sean for this fun review of the newest monster flick on the block: Cloverfield. I still don't know just what the hell it's supposed to be because the film's so blurry all the time...maybe it's for the best.
Zombie Lake (1981) Zombie Lake (1981)
I heard a lot about this movie and finally bought it from E-bay. I should have listened to that inner voice that was shouting 'Run away!'...but I didn't. Now you can share in the pain as well.
Dracula vs Frankenstein (1971) Dracula vs Frankenstein (1971)
This movie really had me considering picking up a new hobby. This one just sucked. See the two monster icons Count D and big Frank stumble around trying to get ahold of a serum to create an army of indestructable vampires. I think that's what he said. My brain died about 90 minutes ago.

A proud contribution to the 'VS' roundtable.

Megaforce (1982) Megaforce (1982)
See the world's most advanced fighting force ride their battle-bikes into a showdown with Evil! Well, it's not really that exciting but it's pretty damned cheesy and there's lot of thumb kissing. You'll see what I mean.
