We’re sorry...

    Are there any Jeffrey Combs movies that AREN’T worth checking out? He’s like the patron saint of GBF.

    EDIT: On a whim, I decided to see if Combs ever appeared in a film with Brad Dourif (another reliable B-movie star), and he has: The Wizard of Gore remake. And Crispin Glover is in it as well. Have you seen it? Any good?

    EDIT AGAIN: Well, it seems Josh wasn’t…exactly thrilled with it.

      lol, the thing about Combs is that even if the movie is bad he never phones it in. Much like Lance Henriksen, he always delivers even if the movie doesn’t.

      Haven’t seen the Wizard of Gore remake yet. Been dodging it.

        Times like this, I wonder what it would be like if most other moviegoers liked these character actors as much as I do. You’d get more summer films with Sam Rockwell, Patricia Clarkson or John Goodman (and, once upon a time, Peter Lorre or Thelma Ritter) in the lead, and winning all the awards. Jeffrey Combs probably doesn’t even get INVITED to the Oscars.

        • Cecil_Trachenburg

          When you think that Channing Tatum is at the oscars and Combs isn’t it makes it all the more sad.

    I loved this movie, cheap effects and all. Combs sells it as usual, and it is awesome.

    THIS should have been the “doctor strange” movie they clearly were shooting for without licensing it. 🙂

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      I wonder how it would have turned out if they actually were able to keep the license.

        I don’t even read comics, but two minutes into this review, I was totally thinking “Doctor Strange” anyway. It was THAT similar.

        • Nessus

          This. It feels like a mockbuster for a Marvel movie that doesn’t exist.

  • Moppet

    I remember watching this one. I always liked the scene with the crystals, the magic not just coming out of, “nowhere” but actually requiring things. Despite the cheap look of the film, in some respects, others looked really good.

    Both the Villain and the Protagonist here are actors I’ve seen all over the place, and even when they’re in something, “not so good” they’re just fun to watch anyways. Brian Thompson also played in that short lived Kindred Embrace that was ‘sorta’ based on Vampire the Masquerade as Eddie Fiori along with Jeff Kober as a Nosferatu. Jeff Kober (another actor that’s fun to see in just about anything) and Brain both had repeat roles in Buffy, as different characters, which is where I first started actually noticing actors when I was younger. It was interesting to go back to movies I’d seen prior and all of a sudden realize I’d seen them before.

    Thanks for the video.

      Thompson was at a convention years ago. I really regret not getting an autograph from him because I haven’t seen him since.

      Thanks!

    OK, Cecil. Fun time happy question:

    I’m going to my local video store again this Wednesday. What Cannon/Full Moon/Golan Globus/whatever else is kinda similar movie – that you HAVEN’T yet reviewed – should I rent? I’m leaving it entirely up to you. I’m tired of playing GBF-catch-up. I had previously heard of maybe….four (???) of your reviews thus far (Turtles, Mortal Kombat, Dungeons and Dragons…..the big ones, you know what I’m saying), so every movie review is my first-ever exposure to it. I…just don’t know this world, yet I’m too chicken to start renting stuff randomly. But I still wanna go in as blind as possible (Cyclone has been, until….Wednesday?…the blindest GBF film I ended up seeing, because of how quickly I was sold on it).

    Sooo….what should I see? It’s, like, $2.25/rental. For a week. Seriously. Anything you think is cool but, for one reason or another, you haven’t reviewed here yet.

    EDIT: Seriously, if it’s a title you think could plausibly be found at A video store, it’s prolly gonna be at MY video store. Because I’m…..IT’S that awesome.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      As far as Canon G/G I’d say Breakin & Breakin 2 Electric Boogaloo but they aren’t on DVD yet. Lifeforce is pretty amazing. Also, little known that Cobra and Cyborg were both Canon productions. American Ninja is a treat.

      Lets see what else…Barfly, Missing in Action, Rappin’, Texas Chainsaw 2, and the Borrower off the top of my head.

      As far as Full Moon, you can’t go wrong with Puppet Master 1-4 (especially 2), The Trancers series, the Subspecies series, and Underworld.

      Enjoy!

      • Muthsarah

        My video store has the Breakin’s on DVD. Seen Lifeforce. Amazing production work. I guess I’ll check American Ninja, been meaning to see another one of those.

        Is Cobra actually GOOD as far as 80s action movies go? I’ve hear it such a lesser Stallone. Demolition Man was quite fun even when it was stupid, but that movie was self-aware.

        Would Missing in Action be a good first Chuck Norris? I’m thinking of just renting a Norris, a Seagal, a Rothrock, and a van Damme all at once. Never seen anything from any of them (not counting Executive Decision).

  • RockyDmoney

    Jeffery Combs ever been bad in anything? the guy is just pure concentrated awesome

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      I haven’t seen every movie he’s done but in the ones I have seen, (which is a lot) he has always been top shelf.

  • Sebastian Villegas

    At first I thought, “They’re seriously ripping off Doctor Strange. Hell, Doctor Fate too?” Then I see the fact that it was supposed to be Doctor Strange. Hmm, I’ll stick with Scott Derricksen directing it. Though Wes Craven doing one was a missed opportunity.

    • RockyDmoney

      I was thinking the same thing during the review. That this would be a good dr strange movie turns out it was supposed to be

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      70s-80s Craven would have nailed it. Now…I’m not so sure.

  • NixEclips

    Cecil, Wizard of Gore is bizarre, as was the original. Check it out.
    I was a big fan of early Full Moon pics, as they really tried hard. Then Band gave up. This was quite a rent, back in the day.
    I always can’t wait for you to get done with the recap and to the background info. It’s the exact opossite of what I wanted my non-existent show to be and it works!
    Gods, you rock.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      I’ve been meaning to check it out, I’ll have to bump it up.

      While there are a few of the newer Full Moon movies that are good, they pale in comparison to the old ones. They just don’t have the same passion behind them and you can tell.

      lol 🙂

    Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Campbell kind of look alike, maybe they should be in a movie where they’re brothers.
