Girls of the Big House (Republic Pictures, 1945)
Splinter (Magnolia Magnet, 2008)
I liked this little sci-fi horror flick - kind of a variation on The Ruins. I think it might end up getting programmed into this year's Crazy Movie Weekend: Halloween Horrorfest 4!
Battletruck (New World Pictures, 1982)
This is another fun Mad Max ripoff - but actually filmed in that neck of the woods - New Zealand, in this case. It was picked up for Stateside release by Roger Corman's New World Pictures, and subsequently had some footage used in Jim Wynorski's entertaining Hollywood Boulevard II. And here's a funny side note - check out the director's name above. The poor guy must have been razzed to the point of going insane. The name is pronounced Coke-liss - and in fact, that's now how he spells it - Harley Cokeliss - just trying to keep the people seemingly commenting on his anatomy to a minimum.
Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
