If you’ve ever seen 28 Days Later, the plot of Primal Rage may sound a little familiar, but on a much smaller scale… Sam Nash is a Florida college journalist is looking for a story. That quest leads him to Dr. Ethridge (Bo Svenson – with and awesome little mulleted ponytail, btw) who is conducting experiments on a baboon, trying to revitalize dead brain cells in the primate’s brain. Sam can’t get any face time with Dr. Ethridge, so his journalism buddy Duffy suggests that he break into the lab to get some recon for his story. Sam refuses to do it, so Duffy goes instead and unleashes a fury that rocks the small college campus.
Attack of the Slime People follows 50’s film director Buddy Flavenoid (Robert Tiffi who was also a writer on the film), who was working as a bathroom attendant.

Now he is trying to get back into the making horror films after he was approached by someone interested in one of his scripts…
The story of a small town taken over by two rival clans in search of a lost treasure, Sukiyaki Western Django is a Spaghetti Western told with Eastern characters and with a different type of twist to it. Look for the review in the coming weeks.
I’ve been seeing the trailer for Black Dynamite for what seems like decades. But maybe it’s just that it’s based in the 70’s and the trailer has actually been showing on the Internet for almost 2 years. Ever since we saw it me and my buddies were hooked! I was a huge fan of Grindhouse and this was another one of those type movies, a period piece so to speak that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Michael Jai White plays the title character and reminds me of Jim Kelly in Black Belt Jones. In fact if you are a fan of that movie or other Blaxploitation movies like it you don’t even need to read this review, just go see this flick, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
