Greetings From Sunny Florida!

As you can see, this is not a review of the classic film Flesh Feast (aka Time is a Terror). I could give you an excuse, but I’m too lazy to even do that! What I have been doing is my usual procrastination, reading other (better) film review sites, and watching what will be (eventually!) the subject of the review.

However (and there’s always a however in life) I’ve been reading/researching the history of Floridasploitation. (It wasn’t ALWAYS America’s wang!) Why didn’t FL become Hollywood? It was closer to the actual film capital at the time (New York) and had the same positives as CA. Join me in my quest to find out why!

THANKSGIVING EVE BAD MOVIE TREAT: THE TURKEY MONSTER MOVIE “BLOOD FREAK” | Balladeer’s Blog

(Imagine a photo of a vintage TV turkey dinner here, since I can’t upload anything…)

I first reviewed Blood Freak in the summer of 2010, but considering how its premise makes it appropriate to the Turkey Day holiday I’ll rerun it like they used to rerun The Wizard of Oz every…

What’s that, you say? I’m delaying the debut of the “new, improved” Six Degrees of Stoogeration? Of course! But I have an excuse–the Zombies are on Conan tonight, and I can’t figure out what movie would be best to be the premier movie for the site. I really can’t decide between Flesh Feast, Blood Freak, or They Saved Hitler’s Brain. Perhaps I should flip a coin…

Dead 2 Rights: Ed Wood Wednesdays, week 61.5: ‘[MISTED] Orgy of the Dead’ (1998)

I found this along my journey of reading All Things Wood, and thought it very interesting (and also very good!) It’s a nice diversion from that “other stuff” (Trump, DNC, Trump, Hillary, Trump, Trump, and did I say Trump? ‘Cause you can never get enough Trump.) It’s from a very talented writer by the name of Joe Blevins, a self-described “darkener of doorsteps.”

Enjoy! (And yes, you CAN link Ed Wood to the Three Stooges without using all 6 degrees!)

The B-Movie Scare-A-Thon 2015!

Today’s not only the birthday of THIS GUY:

This is a "Winning" album!
This is a “Winning” album!

But it’s also the 3rd annual B-Movie Scare-A-Thon!  I started it when I was in my first go-round of being between engagements, and seeing as I’m currently between engagements, why not keep it going? (I’ve been unemployed for THREE Halloweens in a row…is someone trying to tell me something?)

Because I always love making up signs, etc., I made up a little something via Canva to celebrate the season:

B Movie Scareathon 2

This year’s lineup includes The Three Stooges (of course!), MST3K’s The Creeping Terror, The Beast of Yucca Flats, Track of the Moon Beast, and The Horrors of Spider Island. Then I decided to go un-MST3K to Larry Buchanan’s It’s Alive! (which almost put me to sleep!)

I need to figure out what the last two movies should be–I think I’ll go Rifftrax or Cinematic Titanic with these.  Let’s see, I could pick The House on Haunted Hill, Kiss of the Tarantula, Frankenstein’s Castle of Freaks, (slightly angry sigh) ONIONS…well, there are lots of movies to choose from…

(MST3K fans will get that joke!)
