Alpha House is big frat fun!

Posted by Scotch on March 16th, 2014

Having never attended college myself, I’ve had to live and party vicariously through that well-worn film trope, the college comedy. With movies such as Bikini Spring Break under their belt and now Alpha House, The Asylum is fast becoming everything that National Lampoon once was in their heyday. However, Alpha House wisely sets it’s sights on delivering simpler fare than Lampoon’s seminal frat flick, Animal House.

Alphas, beware! The conniving Associate Dean has set a devious plan in motion; to shut down the Alpha’s frat house by making it co-ed. Horror of horrors!! The sexy girls of the Delta sorority have moved in and the more debauchery that occurs, the more the various frat house brothers get booted out of the house and off campus altogether. While the premise doesn’t make a whole hell of a lot of sense, the gags move fast and loose and center almost exclusively on getting the female members of the cast out of their clothes. While never aspiring to be much more than a sexy, college romp, Alpha House does succeed in evoking laughs through several running gags as well as an empathy for our young protagonists who wanted nothing more than to be Alphas and pursue the finer things that college has to offer. You know…beer, boobs…er, more beer!

It may not win any awards for complex storytelling or maturity, however it is an exceedingly well executed frat comedy that delivers everything one would expect it to. Alpha House is a topless, bouncy, beer-drenched, gag fest that is enthusiastic to live up to the tradition of the similar-themed college films that have preceded it…and it clearly measures up! Look for it on DVD from The Asylum.

Trancers 2 and 3: Dry hair is for squids!

Posted by Scotch on December 15th, 2013

A lot of the movies that I enjoy don’t generally feature what you would consider A-list actors. In fact, if you and I have had a conversation, unless you’re a fan of the same types of movies that I am, I probably went into great, convoluted, detail trying to explain who a particular actor is. (”What do you mean you don’t know who Jeffrey Combs is? Re-Animator?! He was in that one Michael J. Fox movie with Gary Busey’s brother in it…you know, the one with the ghosts?!”)trancers32

Anyhoo, Tim Thomerson is one of those great actors that I absolutely love and just can’t comprehend that others don’t know who he is. Thomerson is most well known for his role as the ultra-cool, rugged, detective, Jack Deth in the Trancers movies. Echo Bridge Entertainment hooked us up with Trancers 2 and 3 this last week and what a solid blast from the past they were.

Part two picks up in 1991, six years after the first Trancers movie left off. Jack Deth has settled in with his wife Lena (Helen Hunt) in modern day Los Angeles, when his former wife, special agent Alice Stillwell (played by the very hot Megan Ward) shows up to help him fight another wave of trancers. The trancers themselves are super-strong, zombie-like, soldiers. In three, Jack is swept away to 2247 to find where the new onslaught of trancers is coming from. This installment has some pretty over-the-top action as Deth is assisted by a mean ass cyborg named Shark.

The Trancers franchise is one of Full Moon Entertainment’s strongest and Trancers 2 is notable as it is actually directed by Full Moon head honcho, Charles Band. My plan is to definitely settle in for a lost weekend with the entire Trancers series in the coming month. I would recommend you grab yourself the dvd copies of Trancers 2 and 3 from Echo Bridge Entertainment. And always remember…dry hair is for squids!

Chupacabra vs The Alamo Dvd Review

Posted by Scotch on December 3rd, 2013

There have been so many great pairings over the years; Bonnie and Clyde, spaghetti and meatballs, Ren and Stimpy…but of all the combos, I’d say that my current favorite is Eric Estrada and chupacabras. I recently obtained a copy of the 2012 flick Chupacabra vs The Alamo from the good folks over at Echo Bridge Entertainment and needless to say, my world has been firmly rocked. The only thing that could have possibly made this film any better for me would have been if Estrada had slapped on a California highway patrolman’s uniform, mounted his Poncherello-scooter and partnered up with his old pal Larry Wilcox for a Chips-style action sequence.

Eric Estrada plays a hard-nosed DEA agent who rides his motorcycle like a bat out of hell in pursuit of drug gangs and rabid chupacabras. Heck! He even recklessly jumps his bike over construction sites if he has to. After all, it’s all in the line of duty for Carlos (Estrada) who does whatever he needs to do to get the job done. That’s a good thing too, considering that these wacky, bloodthirsty beasts can open doors with their mouths and seem to have a personal vendetta against him and his family. Now, the goatsuckers themselves may not look all that realistic, mind you. In fact, I’ve got to be honest…the CGI is pretty awful. However it does add an almost surreal level of enjoyable ridiculousness to an already outrageous movie.

The climax will most definitely leave a smile on your face, however you will need to pick your jaw up off the floor first in order to do so. The action moves quickly but unfortunately the majority of the chupacabra-hunting posse does not move quickly enough and ends up on the receiving end of a goat-sucking gore fest. The Alamo will never be the same again. Check out Chupacabra vs The Alamo from Echo Bridge Entertainment.

Gingerdead Man Vs Evil Bong review

Posted by Scotch on October 10th, 2013

gdmveb Time to whip up a batch of cookies or whatever munchies best suits your tastes and check out the latest epic in the world of killer-cookie-vs-evil-parephernalia flicks. Gingerdead Man Vs Evil Bong is easily the most watchable and consistently entertaining installment out of both franchises. Charles Band’s Full Moon Entertainment is currently on a roll, serving up a steady stream of new cult classics that are becoming every bit as essential as 90’s staples like Puppet Master, Subspecies, and Demonic Toys.

John Patrick Jordan is back as Larnell, from the Evil Bong movies, and can be found spitting out such classic lines as “Why didn’t you say something, Lindsay Bro-han?” and “What in the name of Don Cheadle!” Robin Sydney is also back playing dual roles as Sarah Leigh from the Gingerdead Man movies and as her character Luann, from the Evil Bong flicks. Kent Roudebush has written a script so bizarre and twisted that at times I wondered what in the hell I was watching. There’s cameos from Hambo the Ranch Hand, who we’ve seen in both Strippers vs Zombies and Ooga Booga. There’s the pastry tribunal, made up of several of the baked goods that we saw briefly in Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver. King Bong puts in an appearance as well as Rabbit (Sonny Carl Davis) who spends some quality time with the lovely, topless girls of the Poontang tribe. In fact, he even has a wall made out of…well. I think you’d better just see that one for yourself. Truly bizarre!

I was not disappointed in the least with the amount of screen time given to both leads, Eebee and Gingerdead Man. It takes a while for the actual confrontation to take place but the build up is half the fun. Charles Band throws everything at us from a freak dry-humping a bakery display case to an eye-patch-wearing, killer dwarf along the way. The dope gags are there, there’s gore when needed and some really fun writing. I enjoyed Eebee (Evil Bong) making the observation about Robin Sydney’s character, “That bitch is so skinny there’s no milk in her cartons!”

Another fine entry from Full Moon, cross-referencing their other films more than any other time before, I’d care to wager. I was half expecting to see Killjoy show up and share a joint with the Killer Eye and Farr Darrig from Unlucky Charms at some point. This really turned out to have all the elements I had been hoping it would have and then some! I would say that fans of either franchise will easily find themselves calling this their favorite entry in the series. It comes out on Halloween and will also be viewable soon at www.fullmoonstreaming.com.
