Via B&S About Movies-Drive-In Friday: FVI Night Part II

Film Ventures International is an obsession that won’t end. After all, Edward L. Montoro, walked away with a million bucks into the ether, like a movie-making D.B. Cooper and no one ever found him. Last time, we featured Beyond the Door, Mortuary, Grizzly, Great White and Stunt Rock. The FVI catalog is deep, so that means we’re ready to […]

Blake Collier is one of the men I most look up to: loyal, self-giving, insightful, possessed of wry wit, absolutely dedicated to his family, eager to learn, to excavate beneath the layers of the given. There are times, though, I wonder if Blake likes me all that much. Because the movies he imposed on me […]

If there’s a redneck movie hall of fame, let me nominate Charles B. Pierce. If all he did was create The Town That Dreaded Sundown and The Legend of Boggy Creek, he’d make it. But he was also quite possibly the writer of Dirty Harry’s “Go ahead, make my day.” He also directed The Norseman, a movie that […]

Via B&S About Movies -Poor White Trash II aka Scum of the Earth (1974)

Originally known as Death is a Family Affair and perhaps better known as Poor White Trash Part II, this S.F. Brownrigg movie belongs squarely within the genre of hicksploitation or redneck films. After Don’t Look In the Basement, where else can he go? Downward, it seems, as this movie is awash in, well, scum while still […]

Via B&S About Movies-My Friends Need Killing (1976)

I can’t believe this gutter level exploration of Vietnam came out in 1976. Actually, I can. Exploitation films aren’t afraid to explore the kind of truths that regular films are squeamish about. Gene Kline came back home and spent some time in a mental hospital, but is trying to get things right. He can’t — […]

Via B&S About Movies-The Deadly Spawn (1983)

This was the last movie of a long weekend of drive-in fun. But eight movies in two days can be a test for your endurance and Becca just wanted to hear home. Luckily, I watched the beginning and finished via video in the days following! Also known as Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn […]
