    The Cut-Throats

    ★★

    A small group of American soldiers dressed as cat burglars are assigned to steal battle plans from the shittiest looking country club in Nazi Germany. Thoats get cut and fräuleins get nackt. There's almost nothing good going on here, but the exploitation is in full force.

    Slam Dance

    ★★★½

    Slam Dance! I think this is the 4th time I'm watching it since owning it on Blu-ray, and it's never the movie I want it to be, but I was really into it this time. Very likeable with a star-studded cast, however the vague mystery still takes waaayyyy too long to unravel with the details being easily missed because of how trivial they seem. What's good is that the film maintains its style, smarts, and charisma throughout. Just needed more Virginia Madsen and more slam dancing.

    The only avenger that matters.

    From a Whisper to a Scream

    ★★★★

    Hey there, what's your sign? I'm a From A Whisper To A Scream. This anthology film and I were released into the world on the same day (Sept 4, 1987), so I feel obligated to watch it on or near my birthday, which isn't that bad of a chore as it seems to get better with each viewing.

    My favorite segment is the last with Cameron Mitchell as a Civil War soldier, a gory cross between The Beguiled and Children Of The Corn. The other segments offer voodoo, necrophilia, carnies, a demon baby, a woman reaching orgasm during her leathal injection, and Vincent Price.
