"Never saw this in the 80s, so catching it cold in 2017 leaves an undeniably sappy aftertaste. For all that, there are a few genuine feels and plenty of Last Starfighter shout-outery, from the kid brother's name (and game) to a side character named Mrs. Betuel. Without planning to, I watched this on Halloween. Checking trivia afterward, I then found out director Nick Castle played 'The Shape' in Carpenter's "Halloween". So it gets coincidence points for me."
|50 T1||The Green Slime (1968) - Nov 01, 2017
"Sure, it's goofy. But I had to give points for the miniature work and, yeah, that theme song. I've heard there's a shorter version which eliminates the 'love triangle' padding, and cutting that out... probably still wouldn't make this much better. That said, up until you've got monsters running around on Gamma 3, it could be viewed as this cool limbo piece linking 2001 and Armageddon."

|60 T3||The Creep Behind the Camera (2014) - Nov 01, 2017
"The actors did a decent job with this, but I'd have preferred 'Creep' as a straight documentary. There had to be plenty more meat on this bone. As well, personally, I've wanted to hear about the logic behind The Creeping Terror's 'greaser fight' sequence for years - referenced here in passing, but unaddressed with an appropriately gonzo anecdote."

|25 T1||ClownTown (2016) - Oct 23, 2017
"While I'm not one to pound the table and demand exposition (the best horror always leaves much unexplained), this flick needed a shoelace tied to a reed anchored safely outside the morass of its shortcomings. You can offer some explanation for why the town's virtually empty, but -why- are there people dressing as clowns and killing non-clown people? And how long would you wait at a gazebo for someone else's cell phone to be delivered? I love underdogs, but... Better ways to waste your time."
