Fall is fast approaching. The weather is getting cooler and it’s getting the perfect time to go out to the woods and snuggle up next to your honey near a fire. When your friends invite you and your lady friend out to an isolated cabin in the wilderness for some good times and libations, it sounds like a good idea. When they tell you they got it for cheap you assume that it has to be a pit, and when you get there it is. Everything seems to be in order, but when the cellar door starts flapping in the house like there’s someone down there, you should just leave it alone. If you do happen to go down there and find a book that looks like it’s got a cover made of skin, a tape recorder and some kind of ceremonial dagger – for the love of all that is holy, don’t bring them upstairs and play the recording. You might just unleash The Evil Dead…
Risin’ up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive…
That’s the first verse of the epic song “Eye of the Tiger” by the band Survivor. While that’s the theme song of this Gary Busey movie, that’s about the only thing that the song has to do with this movie, and the only reason I can tell that they’re even associated with each other is because both Survivor and this movie Eye of the Tiger were Scotti Brothers productions.
Hot off the heels of her breakout role as “Stripper” in Beverly Hills Cop, Peggy McIntaggart puts on a stunning performance as Maggie, or as she’s better known…. LADY AVENGER! While in prison for something that might have had to do with drugs (it’s never really explained), her brother Jeff (Jeff Brown from Hack-O-Lantern) is murdered, and his girlfriend is raped and her eyes are cut out. Even though Maggie isn’t the model prisoner, for some reason the warden let’s her out to attend the funeral – accompanied by a guard. While she’s out, she’s going to have to get away from that guard so that she can extract her own form of justice on the people who put her brother in the ground!
Sometimes we watch movies that were so forgettable that it doesn’t really seem worth writing 1000 words about them. I had an experience with one of those types of movies recently – the Cynthia Rothrock film “Lady Dragon 2” aka “Angel of Fury” – not to be confused with the OTHER Cynthia Rothrock movie called Angel of Fury with Peter O’Brian, which I’m sure is totally awesome. Unfortunately, this Angel of Fury is just plain awful.
