Behind The Green Door
Behind The Green Door
Dvd ~ Marilyn Chambers

5.0 out of 5 stars STORY BEHIND STORY IS BETTER, 20 Oct. 2016
This review is from: Behind The Green Door (DVD)
This is a classic adult film which is more famous for what it did, than the content of the film. By porn standards, this is a so-so film with the climax being a scene with Marilyn taking on 5 guys. Marilyn, in case you lived under a rock, was the pure Ivory Snow cover girl. She lost that gig when she did this film and they changed the box. The Mitchel brothers convince Marilyn by doing porn, that this would be a pathway to doing real acting, something she always wanted to do.

During the shooting there was an attempt to have all five men climax at the same time. This was never accomplished after many takes, so they opted to let the magic of editing do it for them.

This is the film that legalized the adult film industry. When this film was made, elements of organized crime pirated the film from the Mitchel brothers. In order to prosecute organize crime, the government had to legitimize the film as having standing under copyright protection, thus placing it between the proverbial rock and the hard place. This opened the door for neighborhood theaters and drive-ins to show adult films which took off astronomically until the invention of the VHS/Beta-max tape.

1.0 out of 5 stars HELL OUGHT TO BE A BETTER PLACE, 20 Oct. 2016
There aren't any ghosts. They are more like zombies, or flesh eating undead and there is very little to see as it comes late in the film.

This film goes from Robin (Martin Thon) rescuing Maid Marion (Ramona Kuen) up unto his death and a bit afterwards if you catch my drift. Most of the film concerns the relationships of the living individuals. The punkish Robin lives in a commune and gives a long speech that makes Marx look like a Rockefeller. To create Old English effect they play around with the syntax and apply accents that would get rejected from a small town Renaissance Fair. The dialouge and acting was terrible with actors limply reading their lines. The opening fight scene looked like a cross between an Asylum film and a Monty Python production.

The editing was a major WTF as they ran some credits 10 minutes from the end, then continued with 5 more minutes of the film, then the final credits. Kudos for thinking outside of the box on a credit roll, but there is a reason why no one runs closing credits 10 minutes before the film is over. Really.

Parental Guide: No F-bombs, sex, or nudity.

Dvd ~ Angelique Pettyjohn
Offered by Smaller World Future
Price: £50.39

4.0 out of 5 stars STAR TREK PORN STAR, 20 Oct. 2016
This is part of the trifecta of rare adult films done by Angelique Pettyjohn. It is my least favorite of the three, even with Kay Parker. While these films are rare in studio editions, unlicensed copies are available on line from "Revenge is my Destiny" web site. Adult rated excerpts can be found on line.

Angelique Pettyjohn is best known for her appearance on Star Trek as on of Kirk's women. She defines "B" actress. The other two adult features are "Stalag 69" which borders on being camp, and "Titillation" which is a noir adult film with Kitten Natividad. "Titillation" is my favorite as it is filled with corny lines.

I consider these three films as well as a signed nude Star Trek poster by Angelique Petteyjohn to be the cornerstone of a secret stashed adult Star Trek collection...that and some Nichelle Nichols stuff. Marina Sirtis is common.

2.0 out of 5 stars QUICK! INTO THE RADIATION CHAMBER!, 20 Oct. 2016
This review is from: Atomic Age Vampire (DVD)
Pierre (Sergio Fantoni) is a Navy Lieutenant by his bars, a Chief Petty Officer by his collar insignia. He breaks up with his stripper girlfriend Jeanette (Susanne Loret) who immediately explodes her car going down an embankment. WOW! Do sailors really date strippers?

She is in a hospital with a slightly disfigured face, one that skin grafts could cure, or her long hair could cover...which it does for most of the movie. She believes her face will always be this way as she contemplates suicide with the gun she is packing in her purse while smoking cigarettes in her hospital room. My how things have changed.

Never fear, a woman with stereotypical sunglasses and a trench coat (Franca Parisi) shows up and offers her help through Professor Alberto Levin (Alberto Lupo) who has a machine that goes ping, an oscilloscope, a centrifuge, and a "radiation chamber" that could be an early microwave oven. His new product Derma 28 he wants to use on a human guinea pig, hence the stripper with the deformed face, one that he instantly falls in love with to the dismay of his assistant.

The professor uses the substance and it turns him into more of a hideous Mr. Hyde, than a vampire. I think "Atom Age Mr. Hyde at Times" wouldn't sell as well as the vampire thing. They could of at least gave him a long teeth. The make-up was pretty bad. It must have been stuff left over from our Lend-Lease program.

Not much in character build-up. Acting and script were pretty sad. Might have some film history interest as a vampire film worse than anything with Kristen Stewart in it. Just kidding Kristen, I really did like how you played a dead chick in that Snow White thing you otherwise ruined.

I Am Not a Serial Killer
I Am Not a Serial Killer

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S NOT A WEREWOLF, 20 Oct. 2016
This review is from: I Am Not a Serial Killer (Blu-ray)
ohn Wayne Cleaver (Max Records) is a teen sociopath growing up in Clayton, Ohio. He has the traits of being a serial killer, but manages to keep his urges under control when pushed. His Mom runs the town's funeral home and he has access to dead bodies. The town does have a serial killer and John has a fascination with him, so much he does his own investigation.

This is a dark humor horror film. We get to know the killer after a few kills. There is blood and body parts.

I love these clever indie horror tales. They tend to have some unique element making formula guessing a film impossible. I also recommend "Night of the Living Deb" a comedy/zombie indie.

Guide: No swearing that I recall. No sex or nudity.

Price: £12.06

2.0 out of 5 stars MY SELFIES GET 5,000 LIKES, 19 Oct. 2016
On Halloween night cheaply made aliens come to earth. A bunch of guys are having a party with drugs and hookers. They await the arrival of Renni, who has the drugs and gets infected by an alien along the way. Meanwhile an angry girlfriend (and company) of a guy at the party is on her way there too.

The alien infection is a slime infusion and combines with things to make diverse looking aliens. The film starts out smarty with good misdirection humor changing the mood of a scene by simply changing the tune. It is the new hip humor style...that is at least a few decades old, but it worked very well. And then they stopped with the humor and turned this is into a drippy tragic love story with the sad piano music. They made the film pathetic and difficult to watch after a great beginning.

The way they can kill the aliens was silly, almost as silly as "Puberty Love." (Kudos if you got that cult classic reference without Google.) However, it wasn't as funny.

Guide: F-word, sex. No nudity. I watched the film in Italian with English subtitles.

4.0 out of 5 stars YOU CAN TOUCH ME, 19 Oct. 2016
This review is from: Goddess Of Love [DVD] (DVD)
Venus (Alexis Kendra) has an ideal life. She takes ballet, plays piano, is learning French, works out, and works as a stripper. She is also very good looking. At the club she meets Brian (Woody Naismith), a melancholy Aussie photographer who just lost his wife. They hit it off and start dating. She becomes suspect of him cheating as we watch her imagination work overtime making us uncertain what is real and imaginary.

This is a decent low budget pyschological thriller with a sprinkling of light erotica. Venus provides us with an interesting character. The surprise ending was poorly clued...close but no cigar. Good performance by Alexis Kendra.

Guide: F-word, sex, nudity (Alexis Kendra, Elizabeth Sandy, Monda Scott)

4.0 out of 5 stars BRING ME THE BABY'S HEAD, 19 Oct. 2016
This review is from: The Last King [DVD] (DVD)
A bunch of guys named Sven ski around and shoot arrows in order to save a baby who would be king, Inside the palace the elder King was poisoned as if in a Shakespearean play. Great history if you like snow, arrows, axes, and skis.

Based on a true story. The story while interesting may have been better as a short. They did what they could to create drama and over-the-top action, short of turning our two heroes into X-treme skiers with back flips and skiing off a cliff with a baby on their back. I like histories. BTW, Church bad, Norway good.

Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity.

Price: £3.49

4.0 out of 5 stars LETTERS FROM THE DEAD, 18 Oct. 2016
This review is from: Afterimages (Amazon Video)
A group of film students in Singapore need to make a film. They discover if they burn a camera in a particular pit, a film will be there the following day. The film is a ghost story of some kind and admittedly it was better than the kids could make, so just go with it. They burn more cameras as this becomes an anthology with their own story tying it all together.

The short stories were interesting, most with a twist. I thought the lady finger tale was too long. Asian style Creepshow. Soft 4 stars.

Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars I DIDN'T WANT THIS, 18 Oct. 2016
This review is from: Hollywood Nightmare (Amazon Video)
This is an Atlanta low budget horror film with a familiar twist. Kendall Summers (Zoe Myers) is a near "B" actress who wants it all. She is moving into a fine home in what appears to be Smyrna, i.e Julia Roberts old home. She treats too many people like dirt, but still has a core of friends. Things happen in the house that implies a haunting.

It you notice the alarm clock, it is 2:58 AM when she lays down and moments later it is 2:44....then she wakes up at 4:42 in the afternoon. Is this by design or just a screw up. At about 29-30 minutes into the film, Kendall opens the door. There is a shadow in the scene next to her that slowly backs off. Stage hand or by design? Later Kendall sees a shadow, but not the same one. The directer/ script writer Chase Smith plays a "crappy" director and script writer in the film. Kendall reads the script at home and it is what has happened to her, she makes no connection. I did like her Foxers, although Zoe Myers would make Fruit of the Loom boxers look good. I wasn't overjoyed with the twist and the acting was on an Eric Roberts level. Michael Ford could pass for Eric Robert's son.

Guide: F-word, sex, nudity (Not Zoe Myers, she just major league teases) 2 1/2 stars
