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…

Bad and Ugly of Retro Food: Moving on

 

A blog about the bad and ugly of food from 1930-1979

This is also part of my “Blogs That Inspire” series.

Look at those photos.

LOOOOK at them! #Goddammit1970s is ALL over this blog. This must be what people ate when they had the “munchies,” because I cannot see anyone eating this slop sober. Look at that glazed “ham!” It’s glazed with gelatin(e) and probably has lines drawn on with Magic Marker.

There’s nothing I like better than a “links” page. Someone has (thankfully!) done all the work for me in finding more great b-movie sites so I won’t have to. That’s all fine and good until you run up against one like this.

Obviously, 1999 is a million years ago in website years (it’s also the year I started using Amazon to feed my bad movie appetite), so it’s no surprise that most of these sites are gone. But it is neat to see the few that are still up and around. Go on, take a trip back in time!

Thrilling Days of Yesteryear: Where’s the Rest of Me: Accidents Will Happen (1938)

I came for the wonderfully funny skewerings of Mayberry RFD and The Doris Day Show (a favorite of mine…when I was 4) and stayed for the great reviews for movies I tend to stay away from (review-wise). You see, Mr. Ivan G. Shreve doesn’t deal in the “glories” of 1970s schlock (unless it’s the Doris Day Show…zing!), but the more neglected (and unknown) films and shorts of the 1930s and 40s. (I take that back–he’s blogged on Seconds [1966]!!!! If you haven’t seen that film, DO IT IMMEDIATELY!)

 

Every 70s Movie, or Could I Do This EVERYDAY?!

COULD I do this every day? Could I make myself sit down and watch the worst of the worst films of my favorite era (the 1970s!) every.day?

I’d like to think I could, but then I do things like forget to take my (quite important!) heart medicine last night, then wonder why I can’t walk as fast as I usually do. (Duh!)

But I think (THINK!) I could do this, at least for a short time, when this assignment comes to an end. Nothing but me, bad movies, and an exercise bike. (I’ve got to do something while watching this cinematic madness!)

(By the way, this is another influence on the upcoming Six Degrees of Stoogeration site!)
