HALLOWEEN II (1981)

-Science Created Him. Now CHUCK NORRIS Must Destroy Him.- It’s “SILENT RAGE” (1982) My Peeps!!!

Alright, My Peeps…

…In This Wild Little Flick…

CHUCK NORRIS

…Is A Tough-As-Nails Sheriff Of A Small Town In Good Ole Texas…

…And Now He’s Facing-Off Against A Mentally Deranged Psycho Killer Whom Is, As Far As We All Know, Totally INDESTRUCTIBLE!!!

No Shit, Sheriffs!

CHUCK NORRIS

…In A “B-Movie” ACTION/HORROR/SLASHER/SCI-FI/THRILLER!!!

I KNOW, RIGHT!!!

WOOT!!!

I Promise, I Couldn’t Make This Up If I Tried!

Well…

…Ok…

…I Could…

…But I’m So SO NOT!!!

😀     😀     😀

Our Killer Is “JOHN KIRBY”…

(Played With A Brute Viciousness By Mr. BRIAN LIBBY)

…A Man Who Was Recently SHOT-TO-PIECES By The Police After He Took An AX TO HIS FAM!

He Died On The Operating Table…

…Under The Careful Care Of Three Doctors/Surgeons/Geneticists…

(Played By RON SILVER, STEVEN KEATS, And WILLIAM FINLEY)

…Who Are Now Using “KIRBY” As Their Ginni-Pig For A Genetic Super-Healing Serum.

Guess What?!

IT WORKS!!

Only, Not In How They’d Planned.

“KIRBY” Has A Totally Static-Brian, And A Body That Can Perpetually Heal Heal HEAL!!!

Do You See Where This Is Going, Kiddies?!?!?

SURE YOU DO!!!

“KIRBY” Flies The Coop And Sets Out On A Murderous Rampage…

…And…

…Of Course…

…It’s Up To…

CHUCK NORRIS

…To Stop Him!!!

It’s A KILL Or BE KILLED Type Of Situation, Fo SHO!!!

😀     😀     😀

Trust Me, My Peeps…

…You Haven’t Lived Until You’ve Seen…

CHUCK NORRIS

…In…

SILENT RAGE

…And That Gets A BIG…

FO SHO!!!

😀

SILENT RAGE

…Is Easily One Of the Most Fun, Most Awesome, And Most Underrated Flicks In The Realm That Is…

CHUCK NORRIS

!!! !!! !!!

And, I Mean, Come On, At Least With This Flick You Know EXACTLY WHY The Killer Just WON’T DIE!!!

That’s Gotta Count For Something, Right???

RIGHT!!!

Random (Halloween’ish) Movie Mention: “MADHOUSE” (1974)

Since We’re Well Into October, Now…

…I Figure Throwing Out A Little Halloween’ish Cheer Is Totally Called For.

Sooo…

…Why Not Mention A Personal Favorite Of Mine…

MADHOUSE

…Starring…

MY Man

VINCENT PRICE

MY Other Man

PETER CUSHING

And MY Other Other Man

ROBERT QUARRY

!!! !!!! !!!

😀

So What’s The Gist?!

Well…

VINCENT PRICE Is “PAUL TOOMBES

…A Horror Film Star.

He’s Engaged To His Beautiful Co-Star…

…But The Night Of Their Big Announcement Party, The Fiancee Ends-Up DECAPITATED!

When “TOOMBES” Discovers Her, He Goes Insane And Has To Be Sent To An Asylum!

Some Years Later, He’s Declared Sane And Is Released.

His Career In Horror Films As “DR. DEATH” Is Long Over…

…But A Sleazy TV Producer (ROBERT QUARRY) Gives “TOOMBES” Another Shot At Stardom, Along Side His Former Writer Friend (PETER CUSHING).

And Then The Body Count Begins To Crank Away Again!!!

😀     😀     😀

Yes, My Peeps…

MADHOUSE

…Is Exactly As It Sounds…

…A HELLUVA LOT OF FUN!!!

I Mean, Come On!

When You Get THREE Of The Biggest Names In Horror To Come Together To Make One Little Ole Movie…

…Yeah…

…It’s Pretty Hard Not To Lap-It-Up!!!

I Think The Little Tagline For This Film Totally Sums It All Up.

LIGHTS… …CAMERA… …MURDER!”

Yeah…

…PERFECT, Eh?!

PERFECT, INDEED!!!

ENJOY, My Peeps!!!

Trust Me On This One…

…You’re Gonna Looooooooove It!!!

😉

What’s On NOW!?!: ALFRED HITCHCOCK’s “FRENZY” (1972)!!!

One Of My All-Time-Faves…

ALFRED HITCHCOCK‘s

FRENZY

…Remains As Potent Today As It Was When I First Saw It More Than 20-Years Ago.

In Short…

I. LOVE. THIS. FLICK.

Period.

😀

Released In 1972…

FRENZY

…Was The First Film From ALFRED HITCHCOCK To Receive An “R” Rating.

Trust Me, My Peeps…

…When You See This Flick, You’ll Understand WHY They Saddled It So.

FRENZY

…Stars…

JON FINCH

&

BARRY FOSTER

&

ALEC McCOWEN

…And Was, Of Course, Directed By “The Master Of Suspense” Himself…

ALFRED HITCHCOCK

🙂

The Gist Of The Flick Is As Follows:

The “Necktie Murderer” Continues To Strike Fear Deep Into The Heart Of London…

…And A Man (FINCH) Is Desperately In Search Of The Real Killer (FOSTER), As The Police (McCOWEN) Are Already Convinced He (FINCH) Is The Murderer!

😀

I Don’t Honestly Know How Many Times I’ve Seen…

FRENZY

…But It’s A Metric-Ass-Ton Of Times, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

While I Love Most Flicks From ALFRED HITCHCOCK

FRENZY

…Ranks Right At The Tip-Tip-Tippy-Top For All-Time Faves!

To ME…

FRENZY

…Has Been Too Often Overlooked And Is GREATLY UNDERRATED.

Period.

In Fact…

…I’d Take Watching It OVER The Bulk Of Other Such Wonderful HITCHCOCK Flicks.

I’ve Always Felt…

FRENZY

…Was Simply Too Cool, All The While Other Folks Totally Dismissed It.

It’s Truly A Forgotten Classic.

Everyone Remembers…

PSYCHO

&

VERTIGO

&

REAR WINDOW

&

THE BIRDS

(just to name a few)

…But You Rarely, If EVER, Hear Anyone Mention…

FRENZY

…And I Think That’s A Shame.

FRENZY

…Is A Wonderfully Made Motion Picture…

…And It Deserves MUCH MORE LOVE Than It Generally Garners.

I (totally) Love It.

You (should) Love It.

We All (except for you) Love It.

😉

If You’ve Not Seen This One, My Peeps…

…PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Give It A Go!

I Do Promise…

…If You Enjoy Supremely SUSPENSEFUL Flicks…

…With A Healthy Touch Of Dry Whit…

…A Wonderful Cast…

…And…

…Of Course…

…Classic Storytelling At Its Very VERY BEST…

…Then A Flick Like…

FRENZY

…May Be EXACTLY What The Ole Doctor Ordered!

As I Said Before…

…It Is A Truly UNDERRATED Flick…

…And It’s VERY DESERVING Of Your Sweet-Sweet-LOVIN’!!!

😉

Have A Damned Decent Day, My Peeps.

Work Hard…

…Play Harder!

😀

My FAVORITE BLURAY… …THUS FAR??? “HALLOWEEN II: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION”

  • Do You LOVE Perfect AUDIO And VISUAL Quality???
  • Do You LOVE Classic HORROR???
  • Do You LOVE HORROR/SLASHER/THRILLER Sequels???

Then…

…My Peeps…

…Please Allow Me To Introduce You To…

…THE CROWN JEWEL…

…Of…

…HORROR On BLURAY…

HALLOWEEN II: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Starring JAMIE LEE CURTIS and DONALD PLEASENCE

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

You Already Know My Feelings On This One.

HALLOWEEN II

…Is…

…BY FAR FAR FAR…

…MY FAVE-FAVE Horror-Sequel Of ALL-TIME.

.PERIOD.

In My Opinion…

HALLOWEEN II

…Totally Set The Stage For The Horror/Slasher/Thriller Sequel RAGE That WAS The 1980s…

…And That Continues Onward To This Very Day.

HALLOWEEN II

…Begins With The Ending To The Original…

HALLOWEEN

…Only…

…In My Humble (yet not-so-humble) Opinion…

…Totally Takes Hold Of The Helm…

…And Takes WE, The Audience, On A Slasher-Thrill-Ride Unlike The World Had Ever Seen/Experienced.

.PERIOD.

HALLOWEEN II

…Is A Very VERY Rare Instance…

…Where I Feel The Sequel FAR Outshines The Original.

As I’ve Stated To Someone Before…

…The Original…

HALLOWEEN

…Always Felt More Like A Slasher-Art-Film.

It Wasn’t Gory.

It Wasn’t Wildly Scary.

It Was Quieter.

Much More Evenly Paced.

Relying On Suspense To Create The Terror.

But NOT…

HALLOWEEN II

…In The Slightest.

HALLOWEEN II

Goes Right For The Jugular…

…And Does Its Damnedest To Scare The Piss Out Of Us…

…By Way Of QUALITY…

…HARDCORE…

…SLASHING SLASHING SLASHING!!!

I Consider…

HALLOWEEN II

…To Be THE SLASHER SEQUEL…

…To END ALL SLASHER SEQUELS.

.PERIOD PERIOD.

In Fact…

…I Enjoy It 10-FOLD Over The Original…

…Much MUCH Lighter…

HALLOWEEN

…Though I Know Many Folks Would Quickly Disagree.

The Thing Is…

…I Really Don’t Give Rat’s Ass.

I Could Debate The Entire…

HALLOWEEN FRANCHISE

…With Y’all Until We Were ALL Blue In The Face…

…And I’m Still QUITE-CONFIDENT I’d Come Away From Said Debate Thinking…

Yeah, They Made Some Interesting Points. But HALLOWEEN II Is STILL My Favorite.

BUT BUT BUT…

…My Peeps…

…Please Please PLEASE Don’t Pass Judgment On…

HALLOWEEN II

…Until AFTER You’ve Had The Chance To See It On The Bluray.

I’m Tellin’ Ya…

…Straight-Up And Fo Sho…

IT. IS. AMAZING.

.PERIOD PERIOD PERIOD.

Need Another Quick Nudge To Your Ribs To Sell Ya?

M’Kay.

Well…

HALLOWEEN II: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

…On The Bluray…

…Has Some PRICELESS Extras.

INCLUDING…

DELETED SCENES

…And…

AN ALTERNATE ENDING

!!! !!! !!!

O.M.G.

I Know, Right!!!

HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG?!?!?

The Short Answer???

YOU CAN’T.

It’s THAT Good.

😉

(TOTALLY NOT) Random Movie Mention: THE HITCHER (1986)

"THE HITCHER" (1986) Starring RUTGER HAUER, C. THOMAS HOWELL, And JENNIFER JASON LEIGH!!!

\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//

Why Even Bring This One Up?

Mainly Because I Just Watched It…

…For Like The 98,000TH TIME!!!

(oooohhhh yeeeaaahhh)

Seriously.

Alright…

…Maybe It Was Only The 97,412TH TIME…

…But That Is Still A LOT!!!

Right???

RIGHT!!!

My Intro To…

RUTGER HAUER

…Was Actually…

1982’s

BLADE RUNNER

…Then…

1985’s

LADYHAWKE

…Then I Went Backward And Saw…

1981’s

NIGHTHAWKS

…But THEN Came…

1986’s

THE HITCHER

!!!

!!!

Needless To Say…

…As A Child…

RUTGER HAUER

…May Have Been…

…THE…

…MOST TERRIFYING MAN IN FILM…

…To ME…

…At THAT Point.

He Was So SO TOUGH!!!

In Fact…

…I’m Gonna Use The Term…

“BAD ASS”

…Since That’s All He Seemed To EVER BE!!!

And I LOVED HIM For It.

PERIOD.

So…

…When I Saw…

THE HITCHER

…For The Very First Time…

…Yeah…

…I’m Pretty Sure That’s Why I STILL Tend To Speed-Up When I See Someone Hitchhiking.

I AIN’T STOPPIN’…

…And…

…There Ain’t NO WAY Whoever That Person May Be Is Gonna Get The Chance To SLICE & DICE ME.

PERIOD PERIOD.

In Fact…

…This Film MAY Have Marked The Beginning Of The End…

…For MOST Hitchhikers…

…WORLD WIDE!!!

I Have NEVER ONCE Actually SEEN A Person…

…Randomly Pick-Up An Unknown Hitchhiker…

…EVER.

NEVER ONCE.

Could THIS FILM Be The Reason???

I’d Say It Sure As Shit HELPED!!!

Wouldn’t You Say So, Also???

Maybe???

You’re In Luck, My Peeps.

I Can So SO LIVE WITH A MAYBE!!!

Can’t You???

SURE YOU CAN!!!

This IS The…

“LAND Of The PERPETUAL MAYBE”

…As I’m VERY SURE You’re All VERY Well Aware.

😀

Enjoy Your Evening, Kiddies.

I Shall Endeavor To Do The Same.

Maybe.

“You’re With Your Baby… And You’re Parked Alone… On A Summer Night… You’re Deep In Love… But You’re Deeper In The Woods… You Think You’re Doin’ Alright…” — ALICE COOPER (“He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask)”)

“…Did You Hear That Voice?…

…Did You See That Face?…

…Or Was It Just A Dream?…

…This Can’t Be Real…

…That Only Happens, Babe…

…On The Movie Screen…”

ALICE COOPER's "HE'S BACK (The MAN BEHIND The MASK)" (1986)

… … … …

… … … … … …

“…Oh, But He’s Back…

…He’s The Man Behind The Mask…

…And He’s Out Of Control…

…He’s Back…

…The Man Behind The Mask…

…And He Crawled…

…Out…

…Of…

…His…

…Hole. …”

… … … … … …

… … … …

… …

Yeah…

…I Admit It…

HE’s BACK (THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK)”

By

ALICE COOPER

Could (POSSIBLY) Be One Of THE Worst Songs Of ALL-TIME…

…But It’s A Case Of Being SO SO SO BAD…

…It’s Honestly PRICELESS!!!

"FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI: JASON LIVES " (1986)

Got A Headache??? Take A DOUBLE SHOT Of CHARLES BRONSON And FORGET To Call Me In The Morning!!!

So.

My Peeps.

What’s Your Pleasure?

1983?

1984?

Tough Choice, I Know.

Tell Ya What, Kiddies…

…How’z ‘Bout BOTH For The Price Of ONE Admission?

That’ll Be 60-Seconds Of Your Life, Please.

I Know, Right!

HELLUVA DEAL!!!

Also…

…How’z ‘Bout We Just Go Chronological?

Cool Beans, Peeps.

Knew You’d Be Fine With That.

CHARLES BRONSON

in

“10 To MIDNIGHT”

(1983)

“10 To MIDNIGHT” (1983) Directed By A PERSONAL HERO Of Mine, J. LEE THOMPSON, Whom You May Remember From Such AMERICAN CLASSICS As “CONQUEST Of THE PLANET Of THE APES” (1972) (Which Is THE BEST APES MOVIE. PERIOD. “CONQUEST… …IS BEST!”) & “BATTLE For THE PLANET Of THE APES” (1973), “KING SOLOMON’S MINES” (1985), “CAPE FEAR” (1962), “THE GUNS Of NAVARONE” (1961) (One Of THE TRULY GREATEST MOTION PICTURES EVER EVER MADE, btw) AND OF COURSE… …There’s “FIRE WALKER”(1986) !!! The FUNNIEST MOTION PICTURE In History. It’s About Half “WTF?” & Half “No, Really, WTF?” MOVIE GOLD, Fo SHO!

… … …

CHARLES BRONSON

in

“THE EVIL THAT MEN DO”

(1984)

“THE EVIL THAT MEN DO” (1984) Is Is Is ALSO Directed By J. LEE THOMPSON!!! I Know, Right! How Do They Do It! Amazing. ANYWAY… This One Is A Bit Harder Of A Pill To Swallow For Some People. These Dudes Really Went For The Ole “Kitchen Sink” Routine In Regard To The Violence. And, Of COURSE, CHARLES BRONSON Is The Toughest Of The Tough In This One. And I STILL Say More Stars These Days Should Sport The Bro’stache.

… … …

Yeah.

Great ’80s Flicks, Where You Can TOTALLY TELL They Were Made IN The ’80s.

Simply Priceless, As They Say.

Just Make Sure You’re READY.

“10 To MIDNIGHT”

…Is A Cop -Vs- Killer ACTION SLASHER Flick… …Loaded With… …Nakedness.

And…

“THE EVIL THAT MEN DO”

…Really Goes A Long Way To Make This Film As CRAZY VIOLENT As Possible.

Want Proof?

OKAY…

…The Tagline On The DVD I Have Says…

“MOST CRIMINALS ANSWER TO THE LAW.  THE WORLD’S MOST SAVAGE EXECUTIONER MUST ANSWER TO BRONSON.” 

Yeah…

…Totally NOT For All Audiences.

(hehehe)

If You Can Handle Seeing A Dude Get Electrocuted By Probes And Stuff On His Junk And In His Trunk…

…You MIGHT BE Okay.

Maybe.

Maybe’ish, More Likely.
