      Sure it is.

        You doubt?

          It was between you and this Sweedish Polka Reviewer named Karl. We thought he smelted too much like Herring so we made our call 😀

            I thought it was because of the pimp steampunk getup.

  • I…I don’t think I’ll ever understand wanting to watch a movie that’s essentially just about people dying horribly. Watching some poor girl get ripped in half while people try to carry her to safety is kind of sickening to me, not entertaining…I mean, to each their own, I also don’t enjoy chick flicks, hehe. I will say that the Hobo with a Shotgun movie looks pretty good because of the main character, and Planet of the Vampire Women looks so hilarious that even I might check it out sometime, hehe.

    Good review, even if part of it isn’t my cup of tea. 😛

    • Jack Shen

      Planet of the Vampire Women is definitely more light-hearted and cheesy. If you want a movie that winks at you and says “Hey look BOOBS!” then you’ll really enjoy it. 

      As for understanding the appeal of gore, I discussed it in this interview with Tony Helms

        Can you recommend any people who do the same?

  • Awesome!

    Great stuff, nice to know I’m not the only guy who digs Howling II.

    • Jack Shen

      Oh no, Howling 2 is a personal favorite. 

      • The_Stig

        It’s got Reb Brown, what’s not to love? And dude, how can you talk about Cronenberg without mentioning Videodrome? LONG LIVE THE NEW FLESH.

        • Jack Shen

          More importantly it’s got Sybil Danning, topless. I’m not ashamed to admit this movie made me a man. 

          • edharris1178

             Can’t go wrong there.

          • The_Stig

            Abso-fraggin’ lutely. Also, you should know better than to say the words “El Santo” because it summons Renegado every single ti—GET OUT OF MY ROOM, FILM RENEGADO!

    Ironically, I just re-watched The Green Slime last month. Funny I don’t remember anything about the Werewolf Orgy in The Howling II.

    But the crème de la crème of this review has to be Hobo with a Shotgun. Rutger Hauer’s monologue in the nursery had to be one of the best (worst) in cinema history!

  • NoPantsBaby

    Hobo with a Lawnmower…. You just made me imagine a crossover between Braindead and Hobo with a shotgun.

    I hate you now. You made me imagine an awesome movie that will never exist.
