A-Z Challenge 2012: Z is for Zero Movie Posters!

Let me just say before we get to the actual post - that this is

Let's Get Out of Here's 400th Blog Post!

Huzzah!


For the second year in a row, the final post in the April 2012 A-Z Blogging Challenge falls on the last day of the month - coincidentally my birthday! So we might get up to some shenanigans in addition to our regularly scheduled

Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #66!


But this one is a little weird - not counting any birthday hoopla - because we are definitely looking at three movie posters...and yet...


Z is for Zero Movie Posters!


But I don't care what this post's title is - we're still looking at three posters!



The Zero Boys  (Lightning Video, 1987)



I saw this on video back in the day - and really enjoyed it! A fun mix of genres, going from fratboy lowjinx to action and survivalist horror, I'd like to see it again, actually. Also, the film's star, Kelli Maroney - actually follows this blog - and I'm hoping she sees this and comments! (cross fingers)






Batman and Mr. Freeze: SubZero  (Warner Bros., 1998)


With the original 1990's animated series voices - Kevin Conroy as Batman and Michael Ansara as Mr. Freeze - this very low budget DTV movie is actually a more satisfying film experience than the live action Batman & Robin. It also only costs 75 minutes of your life.








Z.P.G. (Zero Population Growth)  (Paramount, 1972)



I've never seen this cautionary tale of a doomsday to come -  but with that cast - I sure want to!


Now, today is indeed my birthday - so let's throw in some other junk for no particular reason.

Here are a few pictures that could have illustrated some part of this A-Z blogstravaganza - but didn't make the cut:



That's six Barnstable sisters for you - courtesy Quark!


And since it's my birthday - here's a fan made version of the credits to Wonder Woman - featuring an episode (and guest stars) that never existed - but his editing and clips are as good as (better than?) the original show's credits...




And that wraps it all up - 26 posts running the alphabet. I'm going to take a couple of days off - but I'll be back before the week is out! Until then, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!

    1. I did see it - on VHS - and I can pinpoint it to sometime between May 1990 and December 1991 - because I know what house I was living in when I saw it! Good luck finding it! I would love to read the Horror Movie Diary review!

  11. Congratulations on offering us another outstanding, mediacentric A/Z blog reading experience! I've been behind since the beginning, so I'll be playing catch-up in the days to come.

    More importantly, Happy Birthday! Looks like you unwrapped a lot of new blog fodder today. Enjoy!

  13. Craig, that's a really cool set of videos! Nice dropping the new with the retro. Another shout-out to Quark. I'm going to have to catch it. ZPG is a chilling movie from the trailer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLVrtfQ6Udk
