I took a break from gaming and my 90s monster movie search, only to come across…even more monster movies from the 90s! Amester and I discovered the Full Moon channel on Amazon Prime…my God. It’s something to behold, indeed. We spent the weekend rolling thru the catalog.
Bad Channels (1992)
Amy: Not sure
Holy crap. This is weird. Blue Öyster Cult is weird. I feel weird now. It’s up there with TerrorVision, and I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. It may be brilliant…
Body Snatchers meets Critters. Although interesting, it lacks a sure-fire element that would send it to my own personal favs list: Bo Hopkins. Sam Hennings gives it the ol’ college try, but still ends up a poor man’s Mumblin’ Bo who moonlights as a MacGyver impersonator. Chances are, you’re going to be asking yourself, ” what in the ding dong heckamadoodle hell did I just watch?”
I’d like to say it’s a good fun-bad movie, but it’s actually a lot better than it should be. It’s still a dumb Sci-Fi/action movie, but ends up being a lot of fun, and sports a good early 90s soundtrack. Is he tiny, or are we giants? Maybe they’ll answer that in one of the many sequels.
I very much enjoyed my time with this one, and after DM and Trancers, I definitely consider myself a Tim Thomerson fan. The actors all gave pretty stellar performances, including a young Helen Hunt. The music was fitting, and the sets were on par.
Doctor Mordrid (1992)
Dr. Strange’s little brother, Jeffrey Combs, runs around being a 90s movie. Not really, but it works.
Demonic Toys (1992)
Definitely a decent fun-bad. Child’s Play meets Puppetmaster.
Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988)
The premise is just ridiculous enough to work as a spiritual sequel to Chopping Mall, but it just doesn’t pull it off. The acting is so bad, even Uncle Impy can’t save this one.
Lurking Fear (1994)
Not sure. I think I fell asleep…or I was drunk. I don’t remember it at all.
Okie dokie folks! Week trial is over. I highly suggest you check that company out. I had a blast watching all of them this last week.
During my youth, I spent a lot of time alone in front of the TV watching whatever movies were on Showtime and The Movie Channel. I watched a shit load of late night karate movies, but an alarming amount of monster flicks. One of those films revolved around a humanoid monster roaming thru town killing people. The method used for one of said kills involved the monster shoving its arm through a person’s chest, then pulling it back out. When the body was discovered by the local cop, he exclaimed, “the force required to remove your arm after that is impossible! No human could have done that!”…or something to that effect. In my mind’s eye, I see a 12-14 year old me watching this, which puts us at ’94-’96ish. However, being that it was most likely on a cable movie channel, it was probably at least a few years old by that point. I always thought that it was Pumpkinhead, but I was wrong…dead wrong!…God damn it. I’m sorry for that… Anyway, I have been on a hunt for the name of this movie for years, and have made it a goal to watch every creature feature from 1999 and before until I find it.
If anyone has any ideas that may end my (but mostly Amy’s) pain, please, let me know…
Below is my hell…
P.S. Every one of these flicks has an impression tied to it on one of the site’s movie posts. I highly suggest checking those out, as I’ve watched a bunch of movies in recent years…
