Review of “Time Walker” (1982)

This is this week’s Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering. We watched it with Svengoolie. The pizza was good. Plot: An earthquake strikes a modern archaeological dig at King Tut’s tomb, knocking down a wall into a previously unknown room. (Yeah, it could happen.) Inside are multiple skeletonized remains and a sarcophagus. Never mindContinue reading “Review of “Time Walker” (1982)”

Review of “How to Make a Monster” (1958)

This was this week’s Saturday pizza and bad movie offering. We watched this with Svengoolie and polished off the good chardonnay. Plot:Pete Dumond (Robert H. Harris) and his assistant Rivero (Paul Brinegar) have been creating monster make-up for the movies for twenty-five years. He has just finished an excellent (…it’s in the eye of theContinue reading “Review of “How to Make a Monster” (1958)”

Review of “The Cult of the Cobra” (1955)

This was this week’s Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering. We had a nice chardonnay. The moral of the story: don’t be a jerk, even when you think the other guy’s religion looks weird. Plot: In 1945, six U.S. airmen are about to return home from their deployment someplace in “Asia:” Sgt. Paul AbleContinue reading “Review of “The Cult of the Cobra” (1955)”

Review of “Fiend Without a Face” (1958)

This is this week’s Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering, with more Cold War hokey monster movie atomic radiation/mad scientist vibes than you’d want to shake a stick at. I rather liked it. The pizza wasn’t too bad either, despite some distractions. We watched it with Svengoolie, who was—as ever—a fountain of information. Plot:Continue reading “Review of “Fiend Without a Face” (1958)”

Review of “The Crawling Eye” (1958)

This is this week’s Saturday pizza and bad movie offering. This is our second time watching the movie with Svengoolie. I fell asleep the first time. I must have been really tired. Alas! That bottle of white zinfandel from 1993 outlived its usefulness. Maybe if we wait a hundred years, we could have used itContinue reading “Review of “The Crawling Eye” (1958)”

Review of “The Killer Shrews” (1959)

This is this week’s Saturday night pizza and bad movie entry. We had pizza and fruit with wine the day after a Christmas dinner of tamales, homemade mac and cheese, and half a cornbread muffin, with homemade pumpkin pie for dessert. Life is good. The movie sucked. Plot: The opening narration warns the viewer: “ThoseContinue reading “Review of “The Killer Shrews” (1959)”
