Rowdy Roddy Piper hates poorly made monster costumes

Rowdy Roddy Piper fights a poorly made monster costume in Hell Comes to Frogtown. One of several poor films made in the 80s and 90s starring popular wrestlers of the time.

TerrorVision performed by The Fibonaccis

As a film soundtrack aficionado, there are times when you come across a score of a quality far exceeding the film in which it was recorded for. I’m not about to suggest that Ted Nicolaou’s 1986 film, TerrorVision doesn’t have its ardent fans. Its slapstick stupidity and terrible alien puppetry were made for cult audiences to fall...

You don’t get much more 80s than slasher movies and aerobics. Throw in big boobs, goofy mullets, neon leotards and cheesy, cheesy tunes, and you have a potent 80s cocktail.

Double...
Lolita: Vibrator Torture (1987)

Lolita: Vibrator Torture (1987)

I always wind up talking about Hisayasu Satō in this column. This time I didn’t even intend to. I’m currently traveling around Europe, and I decided I’d better watch Lolita: Vibrator Torture in order to erase it from my hard drive. All three words that make up its title would be enough to raise the...
