The Blob (1988)

One day you’re sitting in a tree smoking a cigarette, thinking about how you’re gonna jump the broken down old bridge at Elkin’s Grove.  The next day you’re fighting off some huge unrelenting pink pile of ooze that just spread into town.  “How did you get here” you might ask yourself.  If you’re Brian Flagg (Kevin Dillon), you’d probably be asking yourself the exact same thing.  Life was so easy just being a juvenile delinquent.  Now you’re just trying to survive The Blob.

LifeForce

Picture this… it’s 1985 and script writers need some ideas (well, when I put it that way, it’s 2011 and script writers still need some ideas!)  Halley’s Comet is coming around in a year and there’s quite a bit of mystery surrounding it.  It only shows up once every 75 years, and it’s one of the few true mysteries that are still floating around in our solar system – why not write some movies about it?  “Night of the Comet” already covered the zombies aspect so let’s write our script about space vampires (actually, it’s based off of a 1976 novel called “Space Vampires” of all things, but this is my review dammit so keep your hoity-toity literature insight to yourself)!   We don’t want to keep the title “Space Vampires” though, it might sound too cheesy.  Let’s change the title to LifeForce instead, and we’ll make the connection between vampires and Halley’s Comet down below the break.  Also, be warned that some of the images below the break may be NSFW

Puppet Master 4

With the 4th installment of Puppet Master we jump back to the present, well the present of 1993.  As we know from Puppet Master 3, Andre Toulon has made his way to the United States to escape the Nazi Gestapo.  In part 1 Toulon committed suicide at the Bodega Bay Inn to keep his pursuers from gaining the secrets to reanimating the dead.  But his formula and research wasn’t completely lost.  A group of scientists, including young Rick Myers, are very close to uncovering the secrets to artificial intelligence.  To find it they must battle some strange little foes, but not the ones you are probably thinking.

Uninvited

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.
