    A Strange Harvest

    ★★★½

    Fairly dry but nevertheless fascinating look at the high weirdness surrounding cattle mutilations of the late 1970’s. Features multiple examples of one of my favorite tropes found in paranormal documentaries: When all rational explanations have been explained away, the stern-faced and serious witness has to chuckle and admit “I guess it’s probably martians”.

    ★★★

    Total goofy shit, but it’s damn near impossible to dislike because everyone involved is having such a good time. If you ever wanted to see Joe Estevez wear grandma pajamas or see Burt Ward dance to a song called Got A Woody, have I got a movie for you

    As soon as the farting dirt monsters appeared, I knew I was watching something special.

    Cut-Throats Nine

    ★★★★

    One of the most bleak and violent westerns of the 70's. The gore looks like something out of a H.G. Lewis film, bright red and rubbery, but it never makes the movie feel campy or cheap. It has a sense of dread like few others from it's era.
