Halloween III is one of the strangest movies in any movie franchise. As I’ve mentioned before in a previous post, it’s a sequel to film that it has absolutely no relationship to. While it can be said that they tried to incorporate the Silver Shamrock company into the later films of the Halloween franchise, it’s pretty clear that beforehand they really didn’t have any intentions of keeping this film in the continuum of the world that gave birth to Michael Myers. In fact, the only appearance of Michael Myers in this film is a brief clip from the original Halloween of Mr. Myers walking down the stairs as a promo for a broadcast of the original Halloween movie. So while the original intent of this movie was supposed to be a telling of a “halloween story” after Myers death in Halloween II, this movie is really about Dr. Dan Challis (Tom Atkins) and the Silver Shamrock company.
We dig deep in the our Sci-Fi vault to bring you this week’s Trailer Tuesday… 1987’s Mutant Hunt
So after some in-depth analysis, what can we say about this week’s trailer?
- Robots and Cyborgs are interchangeable terms, and in this case they aren’t programmed to be violent or attack people
- Somebody is feeding these cyborgs some drugs that are mutating them into ruthless killers of mostly scantily clad women.
- Matt Riker is a mercenary that’s gonna stop these crazy robot/zombies from breaking apart cheap shelves and surgical tubing. Oh, and stop them from killing people too, or something.
Also, an interesting tidbit about the director, Tim Kincaid: He’s also a very accomplished gay erotica movie writer and director! But besides that, the films he’s made that are not adult in nature are fine z-grade trash in their own right. I have a feeling we’ll be going to the Tim Kincaid well frequently in the future…
As always, keep your eyes peeled on InternalBleeding for an upcoming review of Mutant Hunt!
Have you ever seen a trailer that looked so bad ass that you spent months trying to find the movie… only to be pretty disappointed that you wasted so much time looking for it?!? Well then you know how I feel after seeing the 1993 cyborg action flick Nemesis starring Olivier Gruner. I picked up on the movie a few months back when I saw the trailer at the beginning of another action flick (it’s been so long I don’t even remember which one it was). After months of looking and finding versions in a couple different languages I finally came across the English version and I was pretty geeked to see it. Explosions and cyborgs set in the near future, what could possibly go wrong?
It’s the last day of the year 2008, and this marks the first year that we’ve been reviewing films. Well, it hasn’t been a full year – we started this current incarnation of the website on March 8th, 2008 with our first review of Larry Cohen’s “The Stuff” (note to ourselves – review more Larry Cohen films!). Anyhow, since it’s the end of the year, we figured if you really wanted to you could browse around the site and look at all the stuff we’ve covered, but if you’re the lazy type like us, this condensed view of some of our highlights and lowlights might be right up your alley. In this post you’ll find some clips and summary of our highest rated films and lowest. So… without further adieu, let’s get on with the show:
