Steven Seagal's Lightning Bolt (part 2 of 2)

“Steven Seagal, former bodyguard turned actor, who once claimed to have worked for the CIA, and who now claims to be a reincarnated Tibetan lama (though not a reincarnated llama, which is probably closer to the truth), has taken time out from his busy direct-to-video acting career and burgeoning singing career [!] to develop a brand new kind of energy drink. I know this much is true, because I've purchased and consumed exactly two (2) cans of Steven Seagal's Lightning Bolt in both of its powerful flavors: ‘Asian Experience’ and ‘Cherry Charge’.”

The Island (2005) (part 3 of 3)

I was always a little apprehensive about championing the cause of Clonus as being ripped off by The Island, because basically, I hadn't seen The Island. Anyone could look at the plot outlines and see the obvious resemblance, of course, but I could never really be sure. At least, not until now.The Island is finally out on DVD, complete with a commentary track from Michael Bay. After watching the movie twice and listening to Bay's commentary, I'm more convinced than ever that The Island is directly based on Parts: The Clonus Horror. In fact, there are several details and plot points in The Island that make absolutely no sense except as an homage to Clonus.

An Interview with Robert Fiveson, Director of Parts: The Clonus Horror

“A cult favorite thanks to its appearance on Mystery Science Theater 3000 during the Sci-Fi Channel years, Parts: The Clonus Horror also happens to be one of the films recapped on this very site. Roughly a year ago, I received an email from a reader saying I had kept him laughing deep into the night with my recap of Parts. Imagine my astonishment when that reader turned out to be Robert S. Fiveson, director and co-producer of Parts: The Clonus Horror.”

The Computer Chronicles “Special Christmas Edition” (part 2 of 2)

“I now present a half-hour showcase of all the latest hot computer gadgets and popular software, just in time for the holidays! Well, I guess there is just one little, tiny thing I should probably mention. See, this episode aired exactly twenty years ago, during the 1985 Christmas shopping season. But, hey. Come on. It's just high technology! How out of date could it possibly be?”

Blood Freak (1972)

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I can't think of a better time to give thanks for the existence of Blood Freak, a film that is truly a cinematic turkey. And I do mean that literally.For once, I can't describe a movie much better than the DVD packaging, which in this case calls Blood Freak "the world's only turkey-monster anti-drug pro-Jesus gore film!" It's pretty hard to argue with a distinction like that.Who was this movie made for, and who was it made by? And why was it made at all? These are just a few of the questions you'll contemplate while watching Blood Freak. In this film, a Vietnam vet smokes a lot of weed and eats a scientifically-altered turkey cooked up by guys in white lab coats. He awakes to find he's turned into a crazed, lustful, drug-addicted, homicidal were-turkey, complete with a giant turkey head and a taste for the blood of young female junkies.
