    This movie! The early parts of it are an academia procedural where everyone argues about funding. Then we see a robot that looks like a child’s drawing of a Dalek. After that things get deeply weird, including a matter-transference side-track into a group of post-apocalyptic humanoid-sacrificing aliens. Also a lot of props that looked like they were hand-scribbled by Sharpies.

  • Dracula vs. Frankenstein

    I gave the movie two extra full stars because Al Adamson did not kill the dog.

    I’m going to need more stars to rate this one properly. Every performance in this one is just astounding.

  • Invasion of the Neptune Men

    Watched the recent Shout Factory release and these movies look so much better restored. Also in the original cuts, more coherent.

    Went into this one pretty blind and not expecting much, but I got an even stronger Giallo vibe from this film than I did the intentionally giallo-inflected Malignant. Surprises like this are why I watch so many random movies.

  • Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare

    The implications of the ending are too horrible to contemplate.
