Slithis, a review by Jimmy


MOVIE / DVD INFO:



Title: Slithis (1978)

Genre: Horror
Director: Stephen Traxler
Rating: PG

Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1:78.1
Audio: English

Alan Blanchard

Plot:
Finally nature unleashes it's revenge! From the pollution of our nuclear waste came the killer we couldn't destroy. Our worst nightmares come to life with the terrifying, scaly monster – SLITHIS! First this nuclear mutant killed household pets near the canals of Venice, California. Now it preys on old couples and a homeless rotund man sleeping in the public men's room! In the tradition of JAWS, two outcasts, a teacher and a Jamaican seahunter, will take on the ugly monster to stop the slaughter! This mud monster creature is something out of those 50's classics we love!

My Thoughts:
This one is sure violent for a PG rated film, but guess why? After the director get it approved by the MPAA as a PG movie he put back everything that was cut by the MPAA to get the rating and release the film as it was originally made :laugh:

Another water creature movie and this time it is a creature created by a spill at the nuclear central. It's the kind of movie you watch with your brain turned at off or it would have an overdose of pseudo science. Of course if you don't think the movie is fun (and some of the line are so stupid that you don't really have a choice to laugh). The film was made in less than 2 weeks wich was really fast even for a low budget seventies production, so it's evident that we got some plot holes and bad acting. But as I said the film is funny and the creature is scary (most of the money was put in the monster costume). By the way was turtles racing really something popular in the USA at the end of the seventies?

The film is a little bit expensive but it's a real cult movie who worth that price.

That Little Monster, a review by GSyren


That Little Monster (790594-467326)
United States 1994 | Released 2002-07-30 on DVD
56 minutes | Aspect ratio 1.33:1 | Audio: English Dolby Digital 2-Channel Stereo, Commentary Dolby Digital 2-Channel Stereo
Directed by Paul Bunnell and starring Melissa Baum, Reggie Bannister, Wolper Willock, William Mills, Andi Wenning

Like the unforgettable horror films of the past, THAT LITTLE MONSTER draws you into its world from frame one. In a dead-on recreation of Edward Van Sloan's prologue to the 1931 FRANKENSTEIN, sci-fi professor emeritus Forrest J. Ackerman steps before a curtain to forewarn us that the movie is not for the faint of heart.
     The screen blazes white and slowly refigures into two feminine hands in tight close up which pull away to reveal the face of a quite pretty young girl.
     Her name is Jamie (Melissa Baum). She's a foreign student, awaiting an interview with the parents of an infant boy she hopes to baby-sit. Everyday situation, to be sure.
     Ah, but nothing is ordinary here! At once the house and its bizarre appointments begin to close in on Jamie, unsettling her and creepily unnerving us.
     The photography pays homage to the great horror films of the 1930's. A devilish, strange, disquieting little chiller that will cap your evening with some delicious shudders. Some of its images may stay on in your mind to become part of your film vocabulary.

My thoughts about That Little Monster:
Way too Lynch-ian for me, and I never really liked Lynch. The opening homage to Frankenstein by Forrest J Ackerman was brilliant, but really ill advised since it set totally wrong expectations for the rest of the film. Not my kind of film, at all.
I rate this title

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd



The Comeback
For fallen star Valerie Cherish - former B-list sitcom actress desperate to revive her career - no proce is too high to pay for clinging to the television spotlight. Valerie agrees to be the subject of an intrusive reality television show, with cameras following her every move as she lands the part of "Aunt Sassy" in a tedious new sitcom, Room and Bored.

Lisa Kudrow stars in this uncomfortably funny and insightfully biting comedy series from writer Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City).
In the spirit of reality television, there seems to be no end to the humiliating circumstances Valerie Cherish will endure, all in the name of fame.


The Comeback (Pilot)

Faded television starlet Valerie Cherish attempts to land a role in a new sitcom.'Room and Bored', by taking part in a reality show dhronicaling her somewhat mortifying "comeeback."

My Thoughts:
I watched this when it originally aired on HBO. I remember that I enjoyed it somewhat... but that I wasn't overly impressed with it. But when I found the DVD set on sale for less then $15 I decided to add it to my collection. That was almost 2 years ago now... and until now I haven't watched the DVDs at all. Watching the pilot episode again today I felt pretty much the same way I remember the first time around. It is one of those shows... while decent... I wasn't surprised when it was canceled.

My Rating:
