Sunday Cinema – “Tourist Trap”

Starring Chuck Connors and hailed as a “sleeper gem” by Stephen King, a group of teens end up at a weird roadside attraction. The owner is psychotic and even worse, has telekinetic powers which he uses to take care of the teens one by one.

This film was Chuck’s hope of restarting his career as a Boris Karloff-type villain, but unfortunately it was largely panned at the box office. Part of it may have to do with it’s PG rating, the director mentioned in an interview that he was shocked it got a PG and felt it would have done better at the theater if it had an R rating.

Someone posted an HD version of the film online for others to enjoy!

Immigration Blues

Immigration Blues

A third-party agreement may be signed between the US & Guatemala would send asylum seekers to Guatemala rather than being detained in the US. There is a similar agreement with Canada…

A small caravan of immigrants broke down a border fence between Guatemala & Mexico last October…

Mexico has VERY restrictive controls on foreigners, including not having the right to own land or be involved in the political process…

It does happen, children are sold/abducted in order to help illegal immigrants get into the US as “families”…

From what little Google-Fu we did, there are other countries that deal with illegal immigration but not to the degree the US does (many of the countries deal with “overstayers” – those who came in legally but did not leave when they were required to…

“Panera Cares” closed its final “pay what you can” store as the stores were losing money…

Sunday Cinema – “Teeth”

Dawn is a unique young lady still learning about her body. When she is subjected to some male violence, she finds out that she has something that other women don’t and uses it to lash out…

Certainly an oddball horror film as the plot and “strange” addition to Dawn’s bodily make up makes any male cringe.

Someone from another country posted this English-speaking film but subtitled it in another language.

Sunday Cinema – “Funeral Home”

A young woman visits her grandmother to help her convert the family home into a bed & breakfast. Thing is, the family home used to be a funeral parlor. Once opened, guests begin disappearing. Will she find the killer before its too late?

With pretty much a cast of nobodies, with the exception of Kay Hawtrey of whom you might remember from a few of the “Police Academy” movies, but more recently as the voice of “Grandma” in the cartoon series “Max & Ruby”.

Someone posted this oddball horror movie online for all to witness…

Sunday Cinema – “Party Camp”

In a rush to get those sweet, sweet teen dollars this b-movie gem hit theaters in June of 1987. Consider it a mixture of “Meatballs” and “Ferris Beuller’s Day Off”, Jerry is sent to be a summer camp counselor and meets the woman of his dreams. Unfortunately the camp he is at is military-strict, so it takes him and a cadre of misfit campers to turn the summer camp into an every day party.

Going so far as to use a similar font to the “Meatballs” movie poster, “Party Camp” tries hard to mimic it. Add in some b-movie stars that don’t mind a little nudity, “Freddy Lippencottleman” from the popular television show “Silver Spoons” and Billy Jayne (the staple of teen movies of the 1980’s) and you have “Party Camp”.

Someone across the pond posted a fairly clean copy of this romp for all to enjoy…

Sunday Cinema – “Hot Moves”

One of a slew of “lose your virginity” comedies of the 1980’s, “Hot Moves” finds 4 friends on a mission to lose their virginity before their senior year of high school and all the hijinx that follow them. A few notables, Roger Rose (former VH-1 VJ & accomplished voice actor), Jill Schoelen (“Popcorn”), & Tammi Holbrook (the voice of Tommy Pickles on Nickelodeon’s “Rugrats”), but really this is about crude humor and T&A…

Sunday Cinema – “Mac and Me”

Back in the 1980’s, before instant streaming, movies were often “bootlegged” and released to cash in on already profitable movie property. “Mac and Me” was a movie loosely based on the premise of “E.T.” and had a bigger budget than most knock-off films. Filled with product placements from entities such as McDonald’s, Skittles, & Coca Cola, the budget of $13 million for the 1980’s was pretty significant.

NASA sends a probe to an alien planet and it “gathers” (read “sucks up”) a family of aliens and brings them back to Earth. Mac (Mysterious Alien Creature) gets separated from his family and finds protection from a boy in a wheelchair. There are a lot of similarities between this film and “E.T.” for sure, down to the characters names. Didn’t do well at the box office, accumulating less than half of its budget.

We agree that cheerleaders, lingerie football players, and women players in general should be paid scale – but only if the revenue can support it. Demanding equal pay without the revenue to back it up will bankrupt the whole thing…

Poor taste…

Sunday Cinema – “Hot Resort”

The 1980’s were filled with all sorts of teen sex comedies, from “Porky’s” to “Meatballs” – crude humor and some nudity is all it takes.

“Hot Resort” is about a group of guys flying out to a Caribbean resort to work for the summer. While there, they chase women and have some goofy adventures. A couple of stars to note, Bronson Pinchot (“Perfect Strangers”), Dan Schneider (creator of a ton of Nickelodeon tween/teen shows such as “Good Burger”, “All That”, & “I-Carly”), and “The Riddler” himself – Frank Gorshin!

Someone found a VHS copy and digitized it, check it out!
