Short reviews

Too lazy to do a long post, so here are some quickie short reviews:

Drive Thru (2007) - This movie was GREAT!!!!!!!!! It doesn't take itself too seriously and is a ton of fun to watch. Set in Orange County, this supernatural tale of a murderous mascot at a fast food franchise is hacking up youths in a quiet suburban town. (Hellaburger, that's fuckin awesome... only they don't say "hella" down in SoCal) One of the funnier B-grade trash slashers I've seen in awhile. Don't expect too much from this cheesy horror comedy or you will be disappointed. 7 out of 10 purely for the fun of this movie.

The Mighty Peking Man (1977) - Think King Kong... except sorta racist. This was good one though because of the hot Tarzan lady that picks up English at an uncanny speed, despite talking to a bunch of animals and a giant ape for most of her life. A bit of skin (Ok, more than just a bit) and the satisfaction of watching little assholes getting stepped on earns this cheesy little knockoff an 8 out of 10 stars.

976-EVIL (1989) - Hahaha, the '80s were awesome. Dial 976-EVIL to get your Horrorscope!!! I loved this movie cause it was a lot of fun to watch, especially what happens to the guy in the beginning. Classic. Plus, "Evil Ed" from the movie Fright Night was in this. That alone is worth a rental.

Pandorum (2009) -  Interesting movie about a spaceship that's supposed to be a "Noah's Ark" type carrier to a new planet, where they were going to settle and populate the planet. Something goes wrong and one of the flight crews awakens from an extended hyper-sleep. Different members of the crew awake, but with no recollection of what happened or what their mission was. Strange creatures seem to have populated the ship and the remainder of the crew do what they can to survive, while trying to bring power back to the ship. Not really my kind of movie but I did appreciate the violence. Also, Cung Le was in this!!!!!!! Very claustrophobic feel to this and plays a lot on paranoia and psychosis. I give this one a 6 out of 10 stars.
