Jungle Hell | Jabootu’s Bad Movie Dimension

This, as well as Andrew Borntreger’s badmovies.org (I’ll do an entry on that site too, trust me!) are my go-to sites for bad movie dissection. I love Jabootu because of Mr. Begg’s long-windedness (that’s a plus!) as well as his historical input–you want to know WHY Doris Wishman’s movies are so terrible? You’ll get some history here! You want to know why “Jungle Hell” is so terrible? Oh, you’ll find out!

I have seen this movie–or some movie just like it, 30+ years ago after the Stooges and Bizarre had gone off for the night. I believe this was double billed with “Picture Mommy Dead,” but it may have been a rare TRIPLE bill, because I also remember it being around Easter 1985, and “Billy the Kid vs. Dracula” playing around the same time. Oh, how I miss the olden days of KPLR and their late-night line up! Between (the then) KMOX-TV’s Bijou and The Late Show, and KDNL’s All Night at the Movies (I think?), you had your fill of bad movie goodness!

I miss the 80s…they weren’t as good as I remember the 70s being, but then again, I don’t really remember much of the 70s…

 

Shock!

An investigation of Screen Gems’ package of Universal horror and mystery films called SHOCK! Available in 1957 to televisions stations all across America, the programming of these films would contribute greatly to the monster craze of the late 1950s. Tangential topics also discussed.

Yes, more influential blogs before I start my OWN “influential blog!” This one gets into the meat and potatoes of distribution, history, etc. Good stuff!

Black & White and Chic All Over

From now until 1 April (or whenever I decide to start it!) I’m blogging about blogs that analyze film. Whether it’s “good” film (you’ll find no Al Adamson here!), or so-good-it’s-bad (THAT’S where you’ll find Mr. Adamson!), I’m picking blogs that I’ve read (like Jabootu), or completely new ones (like this!)

Turns out that it’s not as easy as it seems to crank out a “Bad Movie” blog!

Abortion Rights – Driving Ms. Crazy — Envisioning The American Dream

Step on the Gas Nervous Dot the Democrat is sure glad that Bette’s husband Dick drives a Chevrolet. Men can be real speed demons on the road but with Republican Dick every ride is big and steady! Dot and Bette agree : If husbands must drive fast…make sure its a Chevrolet. The 2 gals in […]

via Abortion Rights – Driving Ms. Crazy — Envisioning The American Dream

We live in a world where Drumpf (among others) can say something as stupid as he has, backpedal and try to take back his comments (dude, just OWN them! You’ve said stupider!), and STILL not really be called on it.  Look, you know that when he says “punish” he means “poor.”  Just think of it–punish poor women for seeking abortions AND punish them if they choose (there’s that pesky word CHOOSE!) to have them by cutting out necessary programs. (No, not all of them are welfare! And even if they are, it’s still significantly less than ‘rich folks’ welfare.)

Seriously–I can’t even take this election cycle seriously anymore (then again, I’ve been cynical for a while now.) Between the Teflon Don (whatever you say will just roll off his back!) and the rest of these clowns, I’m through! Sure, I’ll vote, because if I don’t vote, I can’t bitch. But then again, I’ve been bitching and voting since ’96, and no one’s listening yet…
