1.0 out of 5 stars I KILL PEOPLE, 22 Nov 2014
Alpha One (Philip Berzamanis) is apparently a Nazi hunter of the 4th Reich. He tells his unwavering story as a flashback to a shrink. Alpha One is troubled by nightmares and hallucinations.

The film is all over the place. The video is inconsistent. Sometimes it is in color. Other times black and white through a fish eye lens. The director had apparently ordered a blue hue for some of the scenes, but ended up getting a box of different colored lens filters, all of which he had to try out . I tried to figure out the significance of the differences in blue, green, yellow, orange,and red tints, but had to give up hope. A director's commentary would have been nice on this one.

This film is tough to sit through. It rates a double punch on your hacker's card, even though it is only 77 minutes in length. It is that bad.

Parental Guide: f-bomb, sex. some ugly/gore nudity.

1.0 out of 5 stars SOMEONE LET HER OUT, 22 Nov 2014
The story introduces the myth of Isis, Osiris, and Set and claims it is real. A group of college students accidentally revives Isis and some of them get their careers ended in the process. The acting and script is porn quality bad. Indeed, it almost appears as they wrote this to be a soft core porn movie but then couldn't afford the actresses.

Very bad. Avoid at all cost.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, Nudity? Isis with painted on top?

3.0 out of 5 stars I KNOW WHAT'S IN HIS HAT, 22 Nov 2014
In New Zealand, Dean Riley (C. Thomas Howell) is accused of murder. He claims he is innocent. His wife (Kim Michalis) tries to hire a private detective (Stephen Papps) but can only afford his secretary (Angela Marie Dotchin) a wannabe investigator. She enlists the help of her ex-boyfriend (Kevin Smith) a cop who was dismissed from the force for conduct unbecoming while interrogator a hooker in the interrogation room. When a similar murder happens, Detective Snow (Ross Duncan) claims they are unrelated. The only way they can free Riley is to find the killer.

This has all the feel of a made for TV film. While not horribly bad, it wasn't horribly good. The movie held my interest, but the who-dun-it aspect was a failure as it didn't give us any head fakes or clues that we could solve it ourselves first. Angela Dotchin reminded me of Traci Lords with her attitude. It felt anachronistic watching modern people trampling through Lothlórien.

A film you could easily watch at 1:00 AM while channel surfing.

No swearing, sex. Corpse butt nudity. Women in bikinis wrestling.

3.0 out of 5 stars KILLS THE COMPETITION, 21 Nov 2014
Andrea (Tracy Nelson) attempts to kill herself when she discovers her man (Darren Gray Ward) in bed with another woman. Once she leaves the "nut house" she manages to swing a gig as a nanny for brain surgeon Dr. Robert Lewis (Bruce Boxleitner). Andrea is a hopeful romantic, wanting her life to be like a romance novel. She will stop at nothing (see woman with knife in hand on DVD cover) to get what she wants.

The film looks like it was made for TV. My slim-case version had the opening nudity blurred out as well as deleting the F-bomb, and S-word. It was almost PG. The movie turns into a dark comedy at the end when [PLOT SPOILER] mom becomes an enabler. It made me laugh, although I can't say that was the intent of the scene. The writing is so formulaic, it borders on comedy as we see obstacles getting removed.

I would imagine there are version with the opening sex scene with nudity intact as well as the swearing. The slim case doesn't have it.

3.0 out of 5 stars PETALS IN THE WIND, 21 Nov 2014
A detective with multiple personality disorder is at work on a case of a bar-code killer. There are people who kill and they all have a bar-code on their eye. They are under mind control from....? The Internet is also used. It involves the cult of LuC Monostone. Also women have volunteered to have part of their skulls removed and a flower planted in their brains. Then the second half has the new born/ telephone thing. I am sure things all tie together and make sense by the end of the series. Good luck with this one.

Graphic scenes are blurred.

Occasional translated F-bomb.

2.0 out of 5 stars ENJOYING THE VIEW. WHAT ELSE., 21 Nov 2014
Yugoslavia is in the white slave market luring Poles to work as slave labor in exchange for passage to America, where they eventually go, only to work as slave labor also. The plot involves an exiled director and an actor from his film.

The plot was poorly developed. It incorporated badly written narration that was read poorly. The film had a weird strip joint scene which made me chuckle. Two men talk, argue then fight. One man is hitting another in the stomach. A stripper gets off stage and hits the attacker over the head with a whiskey bottle. Soon they are all back to where they were before as if nothing happened.

The film is best known for the nudity (Julie Baltee, Lisa Boyle, Karen Stone-thank you) and would be the only reason to watch it.

F-bomb and attempted rape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Sykes! This is just for you!, 21 Nov 2014
This is the horror classic that had it all. It paved the way for future horror films as well as horror parodies, particularly "Student Bodies." The film starts off with a childhood incident which later relates into killings. This film seems to have iit all: creepy janitor suspect; former killer/suspect on the loose; disco ball, creepy dial phone with no caller ID; an axe; a killer who is omnipresent; a drive-in, a shower scene, bad sound track, bad fonts, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

It is a campy horror by today's standards, but a classic in its time.

F-bomb, butt nudity, near sex.

1.0 out of 5 stars NEVER FORGOTTEN, 21 Nov 2014
Sarah (Liza Binkley) babysits for her cousin (Lucy Bock) and goes crazy as she hears voices in her head from her past. Or does she? What was with the rocking chair moving by itself and the locked door/ cameras? I felt like there was something else going on that I missed that would have made this sinker a work of genius.

F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

1.0 out of 5 stars IT'S AN IMPORTANT QUESTION TO ASK, 21 Nov 2014
The film is about killing the killers. A group of convicted killer wake up in a dilapidated building trapped inside a freezing mist. One by one they all become victims by the method of which they killed, all performed by the same girl.

Part of a multi-pack. Not worth the time.

F-bomb. Nudity (Danielle Laws)

1.0 out of 5 stars LET'S KILL KAYLA, 21 Nov 2014

Three students who are bored with their lives decide to have the worse camera man in the group film themselves interview and murder Kayla (Ila Schactler) a random victim. If you like an intense scene of someone buried alive, that is what this film has to offer. Other than that, it is a complete waste of time.

F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
