Girl House - more thriller than horror, this film packs a big anti-porn message, so if moralistic layers in films offend you, skip this one. The story is about a student, Kylie Atkins, whose father has passed away and now her mother can't pay for college anymore. So she decides to join Girl House, a website which specialises in "new porn", where customers get to see every move you make in the house and therefore "get to know you". Followed by hundreds of cameras and thousands of viewers, Kylie now makes the money she needs and befriends the other inhabitants of the house rather quickly. After she has had a private chat with a customer, things go wrong and he comes to the house in order to get his revenge for the unjustice done to him. Soon all the girls are in danger. Although the story is very moralistic, the film itself is not all that bad to look at: the actresses are beautiful (main character Ali Cobrin and her student friend Erin Agostino especially) and the gore is nice. So I did have some fun, but since there are so many films like this out there, I'd rather pick one without the cheesy morale lessons.

It was time for another movienight with friends, and we watched these:

Lethal Hunter - like Final Score (see review of October 2015), this movie had never been released on DVD and I participated in the crowdfunding campaign for it. It's also an Arizal film, and again Chris Mitchum is the lead actor. In the story, several guys are chasing after a microfilm, and to get it they are willing to pay millions of dollas, and/or kill many, many opponents. The film starts out with a jeep driving off a skyscraper, through the window into another skyscraper and it sets the tone nicely. A myriad of shootouts, explosions, helicopter- and other chases follow. The dialogue is cheesy, the effects are pretty visible and the final scenes are predictable. Open some beers, invite your friends and have a good laugh at this pearl of bad movies. Highly recommended for bad moviefans.

Fungicide - the last film of the Drenched in Blood box that I hadn't seen yet. Some people, among which a wrestler, a real estate agent and a mad scientist, spend the weekend in a cabin in the woods. The scientist invented a formula which of course gets spilled over the porch and drips on the mushrooms growing below it. Now the mushrooms grow and not only become larger, but also smarter: they learn everything from their victims after they ate them. So sit back and enjoyu the various froms of mushrooms passing along your screen in this flick: badly drawn cgi, sock puppet and guy in sheets, you will see them all. This low budget flick entertains in it's stupidity and was almost entirely made by one family who took on most of the roles and crew functions. The birthdays must have been fun in that family for sure. Recommended for bad moviefans.

Star Worms II: attack of the pleasure pods - what this was, not sure actually. We have watched a group of prisoners on a distant planet trying to find purple flake, a mineral that you can mine from rivers. Also in the rivers are deadly worms, and various groups of prisoners compete for the best outcomes of the harvest, so they might get rewarded byu the warden, who is a vixen in some strangely shaped room where she keeps calling in men from the different gangs of prisoners to have sex and stuff. Lots of talking, some boom mic appearances, a few fake monsters and a superb vacuumcleaner gun complete this nonsensical ride. A review (actually the only imdb review) stated that this was an experience rather than a movie and I can see that. But it's pretty weird, and unless it is very late and you are with friends, this might be a waste of your time. So, recommended for bad moviefans, yes, but keep in mind that you have to create the circumstances for it.

I like a good documentary Slayer, especially the adult ones. Not being pervy, but I've always been fascintated by the porn industry. I've seen a few, and I've found them very interesting, lol :rock:

After yet another break from horror I picked it up again last night, with:

Slaughterhouse Rock - Alex, a student, is having nightmares about him being mutilated by some demons, and after consulting a teacher (the foxy Donna Denton) they set out with a group of friends to Alcatraz, from where th demon is trying to possess Alex, or something. Of course they go in the middle of the night because there is "no time to lose" and upon arrival, Alex' brother Richard gets posessed by a demon and turns into something yellow-eyed and sharp-teethed. He then sets off to kill every one of his friends, while Alex gets help from the ghost of the lead singer of a rockband who died at the hands of the demon before the group of friends arrived on the island. With some weak effects, mediocre at best acting but loads of 80-s atmopshere this was a nice return to the genre for me. It was lacking a bit in the gore department, but I had a good time watching this. For 80s fans especially.

Mad Dog Killer - aka La belva col mitra aka Ferocious. Helmut Berger plays Nanni Vitali, a dangerous criminal who breaks out of jail and escapes with four mates. He hunts down Barbareschi, the man who put him behind bars as a witness, while he himself is being hunted down by inspector Santini. Soon, Santini has to protect the girlfriend of Barbareschi, who is being used as a remote hostage by Vitali. In a string of violent events the confrontation between Vitali and Santini develops into a climax. Nice poliziottesco with a lot of violence (not exactly "the most violent film you ever saw" like the cover claims, but still quite some), nice music and a good amount of Italo character. This is the movie they are watching in Jackie Brown, by the way ("Isn't that Rutger Hauer?" No, it's Helmut Berger"). I had good fun, for Italo fans this is guaranteed succcess.

Arcade - aka Cyber World, a Charles Band flick about a VR computergame which is actually killing/capturing people. With a young Seth Green and John de Lancie (already known by Q-fame), this film tries to convince us that there is a hypermodern (for 1993 standards of course) VR game with amazing graphics (again, 1993...) which will be the future of gaming and De Lancie is the guy who has to market it among the youth. When her boyfriend disapears inside the "cockpit" of the game, Alex Manning (Megan Ward) is setting out to get him back, because she would "have nobody left" without him: mother committed suicide and father doesn't care whether she lives or dies. De Lancie is responsible for more disappearaces as he hands out portable versions of Arcade which swallow all Alex' friends like it's nothing. Together with a friend who is a fanatic gamer she goes inside Arcade to find them all back. You will want to watch this film for the "amazing graphics" but unfortunately you get dooped a bit in that department. The first level simply sucks to look at and for over an hour it's the only part of the fantastic game that you will be able to see. In the last 20 minutes Alex is really getting into it and then she starts to finish levels pretty quickly in succession. Very useful for her is that apparently there is no level 4, she just skips from 3 to 5, just by riding a boat across a lake after answering a riddle (which is a rather cliche one). The last level also never appears, and the "evil spirit" of the game grants her a free life, pretty weird if you a re after killing everyone imo. That last part is the most fun, especially if you like bad movies. So if you are short on time I suggest you fast forward the first hour and enjoy the ride in the game for the last 25 minutes.

Botched - Stephen Dorff is a criminal who is the only survivor of a heist went awry, and his crimeboss gives him one more chance to redeem himself: he must steal an orthodox cross from a wealthy family in a penthouse in Moscow. After he and the two Russians who got assigned to him grabbed the cross, they get stuck on the 13th floor of the building, the one that officially doesn't even exist. Soon they find out why they are there: they, and their group of hostages, are mice and a game of cat and mouse with disturbed twins who think they are the embodiment of tsar Ivan the Terrible. One by one they will meet their fate, but is that as a sacrifice to the Almighty or as a lucky survivor? This is a horror/comedy and while there actually is no real horror (people like that ca really exist), there are bukcetloads of gore to make up for the lack of the supernatural. The comedy part doesn't come off that great, there are some jokes which made me smile, but most of the time it is not tat funny. All the cast (from the UK mostly) speaking with a Russian accent doesn't help with that either. I did have fun, but that was more because of the gore than because of the humour. The final scene wih the copymachine is fantastic though, that makes it really worth it. So if you are looking for a gory film with a handful of laughs, then you can pick this one.
