Student Bodies (1981)

Student Bodies (1981)

Title: Student Bodies Released: 1981 Director: Mickey Rose, Michael Ritchie Rating: R I recently purchased Student Bodies,  and had low expectations. I assumed my childhood self found it much funnier than I would at present.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well the film held up over the years, and how funny it still was.

The Cut Throats (1969)

The Cut Throats (1969)

Title: The Cut-Throats Released: 1969 Director: John Hayes Rating: X (By 1969 standards) The Cut-Throats is an exploitation film for sure. It’s not quite an action movie, not quite nazisploitation.  I suppose you could generalize, and call it sexploitation, but even then, it seems a stretch.  (Potential spoilers ahead!)

A quick note from The Fanatic

First, I would like to thank you for visiting my site!  Not long after the site launch, I had some personal matters arise that required my full attention.  I am just about back in the swing of things, and I want to ensure my readers that I will be back with more reviews very soon. […]

Lemora: A Child’s Tale of the Supernatu


Title: Lemora: A Child’s Tale of the Supernatural Released: 1973 Director: Richard Blackburn Rating: PG  Mix a wholesome, innocent church girl with an estranged gangster for a father with a litany of the “deadly sins”, vampires and barking zombies, you essentially have Lemora: A Child’s Tale of the Supernatural . (Potential spoilers ahead!)

Sugar Hill (1974)

Title: Sugar Hill Released: 1974 Director: Paul Maslansky Rating: PG Sugar Hill manages to cross many genres successfully.  This polyester clad film blurs the lines between zombie horror, revenge and blaxploitation with a few comical moments to boot. (Potential spoilers ahead!) 

Crash! (1977)

Title: Crash! Released: 1977 Director: Charles Band Rating: PG Crash! is a good example of the vehicular mayhem movies that were popular in the 1970’s-80’s.  While many people have likened it to Stephen King’s Christine, I feel it is a very different movie.  (Potential spoilers ahead!)

Coming Soon!

This will be the future home for my reviews and opinions on modern and classic underground cinema.  The focus will primarily be on B-Horror, exploitation films, and other oddities.  Stay tuned!
