In the middle of the ocean, thousands of feet beneath the surface of the water, a navy outpost is 2 months behind schedule. The mission a matter of national security – installing defense missiles on the ocean floor to thwart an attack from outside our country. While scouting the location and prepping the the installation, underwater caverns are found that could be another untold thousands of feet deep.

Happy Halloween everybody. I decided I’d dust off the old review typing fingers and bring you a new feature that I like to call “From the Depths of Netflix”. While most of the movies that we’ve reviewed over the years have been hard if not impossible to come by for most people, occasionally I’ll find a hidden b-movie gem on Netflix. I’m going to use this feature to bring these titles to you. This way, anyone with a Netflix account can join in on the horribleness of watching along. The first title in this series is “The Terror Within“.
In an apocalyptic world resources are scarce, and life is a struggle day to day for the Mojave center for disease control. It seems that this particular apocalypse (not to be confused with all the others that happen in most of these movies) has caused some people to mutate into what are known as gargoyles – huge rubber suited alien looking beasts. Thankfully, these gargoyles have all been contained in caves and underground. One day on patrol, a couple members of the Mojave crew find meet their untimely demise while scouting for food at the hands of a new breed of gargoyle… the kind that come walk among us.
When I saw Machete in the theater back in August they played a metric ass ton of trailers, they always do! After the trailers they played their little theater introduction and then low and behold, another trailer. This one was a little different though, it had that Grindhouse feel to it just like Machete a few years back. It showed a monster of a man, the so-called new icon in horror Victor Crowley, absolutely destroying a bunch of people who had no idea that death stood right around the corner. I looked at my friend and said “it’s a shame that’s just a fake trailer, Hatchet 2 looks like it would be great!” But why did they skip right to number 2, where was the original. A few weeks later I saw a listing for Hatchet 2 at that same theater, it was real… even though it only lasted a week on the big screen! So I had to seek out Hatchet and find out what all the hype was about.
Spring Break! Wooooo! A great time to hang out with your buds and catch some rays, man! Meet some babes, and maybe even get on a rich dude’s yacht to bust a hang and live the good life! Just make sure that nobody carries on an escaped cat from a nearby high security military lab, because that would probably turn out being very, very bad news. Wait a minute here… if this happened on your spring break, you may just be having a flashback to the 1988 film Uninvited. Continue reading “Uninvited”
