Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #22!

Movie posters await us...

Shotgun Wedding  (Arkota, 1963)

Another movie I haven't seen, but then I prefer my films to be in Blazing Redneck color...

Alien from LA  (The Cannon Group, 1988)

It's not really that fantastic an adventure, but it is kind of a cute little movie.

Varan the Unbelievable  (Crown International, 1962)

The cast of thousands refers to Sam Thousands, Myron Healy's butcher,
who dropped by the set with a load of rump roast for Healy and was
roped into walking through one scene. This is actually a unique Japanese
monster movie - in that every frame that isn't monster or special effects
was reshot with a new story for the American edition - meaning not one
frame was dubbed! And the story is pretty different from one to the other!

Or maybe not. In any case, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. LOL Sam Thousands...play on words. Who has a name like "Thousands"?

    Love Varan the Unbelievable! Very cool.

  2. Luana - yeah, I stole that joke from an old Stan Lee Bullpen Bulletins column from Marvel comics - he touted some special issue or other as demanded by thousands - Sam Thousands, the local butcher. Combining that with the uniquely humorous phrase "Myron Healy's butcher" just made it all the funnier to me! Thanks for coming by!

  3. Child Brides isn't worth a damn unless you're watching it in White Trash 3D.

  4. Rick - you are absolutely right. I can't watch it that way any more - momma used my WT 3-D glasses for a pry bar to get out of the hammock again...
