Gerald and Marianne Harcourt are traveling by car when the car breaks down and they have to spend a few days in a small, remote village. It doesn't take long before they are invited to Dr. Ravna's castle. Without their knowledge, Dr. Ravna is the leader of a vampire cult, and he has become astonished by Marianne's beauty...

I think it's pretty wild that I just picked up this VHS and now it is on TV. Kind of looking forward to watching this one next week. Also looking forward to seeing Sven at Flashback Weekend this year only one week away! I have not made it to a flashback in a few years now so I'm pretty stoked about it.

Real men wear kilts.

Yet another big loss, Roddy Piper has passed away from congestive heart failure at the age of 61. I was never a wrestling fan, but you could not beat the golden days of the 1980's. I always liked Piper over Hogan any day.

And nobody will ever forget "They Live" and its longest fight scene and, of course, those famous words "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum."

Rest In Peace Hot Rod you will be missed by many!

The most amazing suspense-thriller of the year!

Shadow Of The Cat
1961 | B&W | 79 Minutes | 1.33:1 | NA | Horror | Mono | Hammer Studio's

Director: John Gilling

Writer: George Baxt

Barbara Shelley
William Lucas

Plot: A female house cat sees her mistress murdered by her husband and two servants and becomes ferociously bent on revenge.

As I have stated in the past I'm not much of a fan when it comes to Hammer Horror. Not sure why part of me feels it comes from the classic monsters that they gave their spin on. Was never a fan of those but after seeing the preview for this on Svengoolie I got pretty excited about it. Now I'm months behind on my Sven viewing but was happy to jump ahead to this one. Why not a cat cause all kinds of chaos to help solve a murder of her master.

Horizon Camp Goes Medieval

Just got back from one of the greatest weeks of my life. The Association of Horizon summer camp. I have so many stories to tell and pictures to share but for now I want to post a few of the videos that I made, I'm still pretty wiped out from lack of food and sleep.

Just a quick background on Steve and I we have been together for over 20 years. We meet at MDA Summer Camp and when Steve was too old to go we stopped going as a team. My sister and one of my best bud's started going to Camp Horizon a few years a ago and talked me into helping for Fall Weekend. I loved it and was instantly hooked again. But I always said I would never do camp without Steve. Well, last year was our first year back and this year was unbelievable.

We made a few new friends and tried a few new things this year. We even ate some of the worst camp food ever. The week goes so fast, but I'm glad we are back at it.

Enjoy the video's and thanks for watching.

Walking Dead Q&A 2011

I have had this video stuck on YouTube for years. Tube would tell me it was tooooooo long. Well blah, I had no idea so I tried to re-edit them this week to make them shorter. So today's Flashback Thursday is from Flashback Weekend 2011! Yeah, it's that old also its the Walking Dead which was cool at the time. They were just getting into the second season so the interview is pretty cool for its time. Anywho hope you enjoy

Evil Bong Comic!

So the Full Moon fans will jump up and down for the Movie Announcement in this video but for me all those Comic Book titles that are coming soon! I knew about Trancers but GingerDead Man and Evil Bong holy crap!! Here take my money!!

Charles Band is introduced by Action Lab to announce the new line of Trancers comics and more. Plus a new film announcement. And a cameo from Tiffany Shepis.

So here is the list of the 3 issue mini-series that they showed.
  1. Demonic Toys
  2. Oblivion
  3. Evil Bong
  4. Doctor Mordrid
  5. Killjoy
  6. Shadowzone
  7. Subspecies
  8. Trancers
Oh and yeah, they did say something about a new Puppet Master being shot this fall. Also, they mentioned 12 comics titles but only listed 8 so if you add in Puppet Master that's 9 so if you will I would like to speculate the others being Head of The Family, Shrunken Heads, and maybe Dollman? Only time will tell.


The only witness to MURDER!

Puppets Vs. An All New Evil!

Puppet Master 5 The Final Chapter
1994 | Color | 82 Minutes | 1.33:1 | R | Horror | Dolby | Full Moon Entertainment 

Source: DVD

Director: Jeff Burr

Writers: Steven E. Carr

Gordon Currie
Chandra West
Ian Ogilvy

After having his demon destroyed, an ancient evil creates a puppet of himself to release on the world. With the help of Toulon's spirit, the Risk Myers destroys the demon and becomes the new puppet master

Shoot back to back with Puppet Master 4 its pretty obvious this is a continuation. What I did not realize was the two movies were going to be one movie released to the multiplexes everywhere under the name Puppet Master: The Movie. In a way, I'm thankful for the direct to video that we have today. 

So with this movie picking up where the last one ended it's a little more of the same thing. Rick is in jail for the murders and Blade has been confiscated but thankfully he knows how to escape. The new director of the Artifical Intelligence project is very interested in Toulon's secret. So of course he hires some thugs to break into the hotel and get the remaining puppets.

Of course, the Demon is not done trying to recapture the secret he sends up one more Hell Bound Dark Totem for one last battle! This time it will take all of them as a team to bring down the evil. Toulon even warns our hero's to get out and let the puppets do the dirty work. When all is said and done Rick takes the puppets back home to repair and care for them. Toulon speaks to Rick one final time, again entrusting his puppets and their secret to him while they will act as his protectors. And Rick muses that his fight has now just begun ...

What I was shocked by was this was not the weakest on the bunch so far. In fact, I rather enjoyed this one over the 4th installment. And if the series would have ended with this one I think the fans would have been happy with. We are treated to a few good puppet battles and death scene but oddly enough for a Charles Band movie we do not get any Nudity just some really boring soft sex scene. The music is the same as all the other movies you get nothing new. A day of filming was lost due to the crew walking out, as their paychecks had collectively bounced which shows the struggles back then were just as real as they are today. The budget was used on the puppets this time around and that was really it.

Only two things bugged me this time around the first being the Scooby Doo style case through the hotel hallways. The other was the really long opening that filled us in from the last movie. I did not feel that was necessary at all and I watched them a few months apart. If you are a fan of the franchise and like most have not gone past the 2nd or 3rd one give the 4 and 5 a chance. 

Half way through the Puppet Master Collection will the next 5 be as good as the last? We will soon see but for now PM5 you get...

3 Bloody Brains.

A little Video for your VHS Wednesday.

Ok, I'm not going to lie I get a kick out of this Magisto app on my phone. It will randomly make a video for you and let you know. Sometimes they are fun and sometimes not so much but none the less I like playing with it. Make sure you follow my YouTube page but for now here is a quick hit.
