Homage to “Things” by the Landlines

Got dropped a line from a band called “The Landlines” out of Hudson, NY…and oh, what a small world we all live in. It turns out that they’re big fans of…what for it…Things! And I thought I was the only one!

We’ll they’ve put together an homage to the along with one of their songs which I thought was really cool. So, thanks for dropping me a line and Long live “Things”!

New Review: Pulgasari (1985)

Pulgasari

Kaiju madness returns to The Monster Shack as Guest Foreign Correspondent Sean Ledden reports from Brooklyn, where the strangely sympathetic progeny of a creepy Asian dictator gets a public showing….

Thanks to Sean for taking another one for the Monster Shack team!

A Better Tomorrow reviews “Jupiter Ascending”

Be sure to pop over to Sean’s blog and read his not-so-objective review of “Jupiter Ascending”…The next Hollywood smash “hit” to the theaters. I haven’t personally seen it yet, because I’m an old grouch that waits for everything to come to Netflix…so until then I’ll just have to trust him :)

Jupiter Ascending

New Review: Octaman (1971)

Octaman(1971)

After a long winter hibernation, the Monster Shack staff are back to work and producing high-quality reviews! Spirits are high! Huzzah!

Octaman is a dreary tale of a half-man, half—–yeah, you guessed it. A great suit almost saves the movie, but it’s still a long haul if you’re not used to
these kinds of films. Definitely helps with a couple of beers nearby to get you through the middle 45 minutes, either that or take a nap.
So with no further ado…Octaman!

Red Alert! Red Alert!

What Were They Thinking?…Killdozer (1974)

I’m trying to fill in the gaps between the longer reviews with little tidbits of funny stuff I find on YouTube. Now, I’m not big fan of simply posting links, and not everybody wants to sit and watch an entire YouTube video, BUT, it’s better than nothing and I promise to only link to videos […]

New Review: Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe

Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe (1990)

Abraxas, an aging, 10,000 year old Cyborg cop from the planet Sadacious battles it out with his renegade partner, Secundus, who is out to steal the Anti-Life Equation from the Comater’s brain.

Yes, you heard that right.

There was never an official trailer for the movie, but I […]

New Review: Phantom from Space

Phanthom from Space (1953)

A tedious story of an invisible alien visitor. Where is he from? What does he want? We’ll never know, but by the end of the movie you probably won’t care either.

Enjoy! Ha ha, well, “enjoy” in the Monster Shack sort of way…

New Review: The Sacrifice

The Sacrifice (1986)

Sean strikes again with another great review, what would we do without him?

The Monster Shack puts on its best soiled T-shirt and goes to film school! There it encounters a beloved classic of high-brow European gloom. It’s a deeply felt, and deeply terrible look at one man’s psychological breakdown, I […]

Sean gets cranky and rips into the new Battlestar Galactica

Sean has had enough of the new Battlestar and artfully deconstructs it on his Better Tomorrow blog.

Pop on over and check it out it. I sure as heck never knew there was so much going on between the lines…

BTW: When I was a kid, I always wanted the Cylons to win. […]

Godzilla 2014 Sequel?

Let’s not get TOO excited, but it looks like we could be in for a buch more monster beat downs in the near future:

Godzilla sequel in the making.

Thanks to Sean for the tip, our ever diligent Godzilla afficianado!

New Review: Machine Head

Machine Head (2000)

Meet nerdy high-school science geek Max. He’s found a way to resurrect the dead using a home computer and a lawn mower engine. Boy, what could possibly go wrong with that?…

Oh and here’s the trailer…thank me later.

[…]

New Review: Godzilla

Godzilla (1998)

The year: 1998. The event: a big budget Hollywood version of “Godzilla.” The result: a movie that will live in infamy! Were Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich trying to avenge Pearl Harbor by making this fiasco, or did they have darker, more sinister motives? Read the review and find out!

Thanks Sean […]

New Review: The X from Outer Space

The X from Outer Space (1967)

Sean Ledden steps up to the plate and delivers a great review of The X from Outer Space, a tale of Space Age optimism permeated by rocket ships, alcohol, repressed jealousy, and a Giant Space-Chicken of Mass Destruction!

Enjoy!

[…]

Godzilla Trailer Review

Thanks Sean for a cool write up of what I’m totally hoping is going to be a great movie. (Yeah, I wrote “totally”, I can’t believe it…that shows how giddy I am)

Godzilla Trailer Review

Rock-n-Roll Nightmare…full movie on YouTube

Yes! One of the greatest, cheesiest monster movies of all time is now on YouTube if you want to watch it…and why in the world wouldn’t you!

You can read my humble review of it first, if you want to.

NOTE: The title in the movie is “The Edge of Hell”, but don’t worry, […]

New Review: Sharknado

Sharknado (2013)

Abandon all reason, ye who enter here!

Want a taste?….here you go:

Godzilla 2014

Hey Shack Fans, Sean drops another tidbit from the icy East coast:

A mere 16 years after the abomination of 1998 Godzilla will again reach American shores. This time for real, it seems! The first Official Teaser Trailer has been released, and I arranged an exclusive deal with Warner Brothers for a Monster Shack Official […]

New Review: The Incredible Melting Man

The Incredible Melting Man (1977)

Astronaut Steve Rebar (!) ventures too close to Saturn and ends up melting, pissed off, and ready to kill! All in all, a silly 70’s monster flick that is best watched from the sofa on a rainy day and plenty of beer in the fridge.

[…]

New Review: Midnight Movie Massacre

Midnight Movie Massacre (1988)

Sean Ledden braves a look back at a crappy 80’s sci-fi flick called “Midnight Movie Massacre”…and yeah, it’s pretty bad. In his own words:

“Something about 1980’s-style amateur evil seems to be hovering in the delightfully dank air of The Monster Shack. I stumbled upon 1988’s “Midnight Movie Massacre” […]
