Uninvited (1988)

If you’re at all familiar with the directing career of Greydon Clark then you should have a good handle on just what to expect in this thriller starring a trio […]

The Thing (1982)

Each of us have one or more of those pivotal films from our younger years that leaves a lasting impression into adulthood and while I have many I can name, […]

First Blood (1982)

Having seen this film at the dawning of my teenage years during it’s first release to movie theaters in 1982 was needless to say a testosterone fueled night at the […]

Any Which Way You Can (1980)

Like plenty of sequels, this Clint and Clyde follow up to Every Which Way But Loose has most of the old gang dropping in yet doesn’t quite measure up to […]

Savage Island (1985)

To be honest I thought this type of exploitation filmmaking went out with low budget specialist Jerry Warren or maybe even Roger Corman. By that I mean the days when […]

Messenger of Death (1988)

“Someday I’d like a part where I can lean my elbow against a mantlepiece and have a cocktail.” That quote credited to legendary tough guy Charles Bronson has always been […]

Steel Dawn (1987)

Hawk the Slayer (1980)

When given the opportunity to spotlight a film “that’s so bad it’s good” as part of a blogathon kindly put together by Rebecca of Taking Up Room, I immediately thought […]

Firewalker (1986)

The long shadow of Indiana Jones was still in vogue by the time this J. Lee Thompson effort hit the big screen. Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus who fronted Cannon […]

The Lightship (1985)

It wasn’t until I was no longer a youngster that I came around to truly appreciating the magic of Robert Duvall on screen. That in part is probably due to […]

Hangar 18 (1980)

We’re Back! The Video Store Action Heroes have once again turned the clock back to simpler times when we’d all rush over to the local video retailer and return home […]

Nightkill (1980)

Thirty-eight years is a long time. That’s how long I’ve gone between viewings of this Ted Post directed thriller that made it’s television debut in December of 1980 after what […]

Proud Men (1987)

This network television movie represents one of the very few Charlton Heston movies I had yet to see until now after finally unwrapping a DVD release of the film I’d had […]

Creature (1985)
