A low budget homage to the splatter/stalker pics of the 80s from director Manny Serrano, this film has its faults, mostly due to budget restraints, but somehow it still works. The movie kicks off with a pre-credit birthday party for a local judge whilst a mysterious ‘someone’ lurks in the bushes. When two cops (Jim […]
Australian low budget Yowie movie that was made on a budget so low you wouldn’t believe it was possible and still comes up with the goods! Starting with a prologue that’s ‘Finding Bigfoot meets Mad Dog Morgan’ we find ourselves in the Australian gold-fields of 1825 where notorious bush-ranger Thunderclap Newman is about to meet […]
From 1979, this cheap cash-in on the Smokey franchise, the CB craze and custom vans probably sounded like a good idea in theory but in practise it takes a long time for the story to fall into place.
Another entry into the continuing series of flicks starring failed actor Caesar (director/writer Dave Campfield) and his half brother Otto (Paul Chomicki), all of which take a stab at the horror genre but with genuine love and understanding.
Don’t You Wish That We Were Dead is a three year labour of love by film maker Wes Orshoski whose last subject was the legend that is Lemmy. This time Orshoski tackles UK punk pioneers The Damned, first UK punk band to release a 45 (the classic New Rose), the first LP in Damned, Damned, Damned and […]
Brought to us by Ozploitation icon Brian Trenchard-Smith (Turkey Shoot, The Man From HongKong, BMX Bandits) our story starts with a string of disasters including racial riots in Sydney, a nuclear disaster in the Pacific and the crash of Wall Street leading to a dystopian future where the economic chaos means Tow Trucks fight it out […]
There should be a template for these documentaries… influential band you’ve vaguely heard of, famous talking heads (cue Henry Rollins), fuzzy clips of said band, more talking heads (band mates, scenesters, Henry Rollins) etc etc. That said, this is The Dicks and they kicked arse!
In 2008 there was Thankskilling, a no budget slasher parody made for just thirty five hundred bucks ($3500!) that starred Turkie, a demonic turkey back from the dead who hunts down and kills a bunch of teenagers on, you guessed it, Thanksgiving. Dumb, cheap, played for laughs but genuinely funny while obviously showing a true […]
A (post) punk romance from schlock director Ulli Lommel, this is one of his earliest efforts, perhaps his first or second, when he was still interested in art as opposed to exploitation. That said, it doesn’t make it any better or more coherent than his later efforts. The movie is famous for two things: (1) […]
Order DVD The Cheezy Flicks motto seems to be to bring you the best of the worst and with 1977’s SuperVan they have outdone themselves! This isn’t so bad it’s good as much as so bad you can’t believe it!! And I loved every damn insane, pointless, exploitative, WTF moment of it! Okay, enough exclamation marks. Truth is, most […]
Guitarist for seminal rock band The New York Dolls, Johnny Thunders is legendary for two things, his distinctive guitar sound and his drug use. Sadly his drug use tended to overshadow his musicianship. Director Danny Garcia (The Rise And Fall Of The Clash) at least recognizes that and gives us plenty of the music whilst […]
