Maniac?

I loved this movie just for the riff "Stop being a dick and shoot yourself!"

I have neither the time nor energy to post much here these days but let me just say:

Lovely But Deadly is another classic 10. Hilarious (that makes two this year so far along with Velvet Smooth)

And finally got around to seeing Vacations Days which turned out unexpectedly to be the best in the teenagers series (so far?). A really great riff!

So a list of things I've watched lately

Mutant

Yep, Wings Hauser and Bo Hopkins are at it again. It's a low budget, toxic sludge makes zombies, film. It's quality and a bit longer at over an hour and a half, but really dumb, and thus really fun. Sub par acting, story, and effects always make great fodder. Nightmare at Noon is probably the better part of their duology of fighting man-made zombie movies, but it's worth owning both of them.

R.O.T.O.R

My sister and her family got to watch this over vacation and it was instantly their favorite. It should be yours too as everything about this movie is laughably bad. It is a tiny bit slow in places at the start, but even then they still mine gold out of it. And once ROTOR is on the scene, it never stops. And the movie added to my own lexicon as to this day I will tell people, 'That's demonstrably untrue'. whenever they say something that is indeed demonstrably untrue. So yeah, it's a 10/10 riff for me. Possibly my favorite of all time.

Abraxas

One of the few misses in my book. The movie is the real problem. They have an over the top character like Jesse Ventura and put him in a quiet emotionless lead role. It's like making Emo Phillips the suave guy in 50 Shades. Horrible miscasting. Add to that the movie is slow and boring, and this was a bit of a chore to watch. Even the riffs couldn't save it.

City of the Dead

I've said it before and I'll say it again: this is actually a mostly fine low budget movie. Christopher Lee has his presence as always, the leading lady in the first half is solid in her role (and fine on the eyes in her lingerie, growl), it has a nice twist in the middle, and only the male leads are really lacking. The riffs are fun but the movie is solid on its own making it a rare case of being enjoyable on two levels. And last but not least:

Batman Serial Parts 1-4

I would recommend watching these spaced out over a period of time because the serials themselves are formulaic and repetitive, and thus the riffs can be too. Watching them in small doses in between movies is the way to go, then this silly series is enjoyable. But I can see why the guys only did this once. It's still fun but you have to pace yourself.
