Leprechaun Returns (2018)

Leprechaun Returns (2018)

Directed by SFX guy Steve Kostanski that rocked the world when he directed The Void. Well everybody needs a pay day right? 

The issue with the new Leprechaun film is … it’s not that bad.. infact it is pretty good.  When you are taking over an existing franchise you have to rock it off its ass or you have to be so bad that at least everyone will talk about it. After so many years of Warwick Davis playing the evil killer Leprechaun fans were pretty upset that he was being replaced due to SyFy network budgets. However honestly Linden Porco did a pretty good job. His witty banter was funny and well timed even if it did sound like they were tweaking his voice to sound like an impression of Warwick.  When the young people are getting killed the Leprechaun the film is also pretty dead on with creativity and good spills of blood. I cant say much for the teens as actors as some of them felt like victims of the time and maybe not the best script.

 Maybe the issue is people’s expectations or maybe its going back to 80s/90s comedic horror is hard to go back to. It’s not dick / shit and shock jokes like most comedies of now and it is also not dry and dark like most horror of now. So maybe the audience just doesn’t get it … OR maybe the negative reviews I read when it first aired on the SyFy network in December were just assholes on the internet. I am not sure. My fav of the franchise is part 4 in space  and it is honestly just stupid and ridiculous. Everyone these days talk about Leprechaun BACK 2 the Hood. I am sure people talk about that just because of the title and they never actually say it because Back 2 the Hood is much weaker than “In the Hood” and Warwick seems pretty tired by that movie. This new simpler sequel brings a lot more life and simple “just do it” attitude. It is pretty basic.. a bunch of teens go to fix up the old run down house from the first movie and reawaken the monster… etc etc.. you know how it goes. Yeah it feels more like a generic slasher sequel (which to me is a good thing). Some are drunks, some are bitches and some are jocks trying to get laid so your not morning too much when they are killed. About half the cast is pretty unlikeable and has some pretty weak ass dialogue but thats never stopped me from loving a comedic slasher before anyways.  Definitely some of the cast screams of trying too hard but the other half of the cast are not that bad ( however not good enough to make up for the annoying ones, I am not pointing fingers though). 

I guess people had so much love for the franchise… who knew? As in the long run this was a tv special spin off that to me just spends too much time referencing similar horror films (Army of Darkness jokes and Ghostbuster winks) . I really wish there was not a “film student character” I am super tired of those characters as only film geeks can relate or else you just gotta mock the guy. So it makes nerds like me self hate I guess … c’est la vie… I am thinking waayyyy too deep into this movie. 

I like Steve the director. Met him a few times and even “borrowed” a prop from him for one of my DIY movies (I won’t say what it was though). So maybe I am bias but you can tell this was a easy job for fun and he made it fun for himself while still showing his talent of ripping out stomachs and squashing heads with a funny little green demon.  It just came out on DVD and well its worth owning cause it is usually really cheap, but I would say it was more of a rental. Its no pot of gold but it is a good cheap laugh and I would love to see more simple dumb fun movies getting funded like this more… but I am a sicko who really loves Pumpkinhead 2 Blood Wings, so what do I know. 

Night of the Dribbler (1990)

Night of the Dribbler (1990)

When all of Canada is watching basketball how about us bad movie geeks watch a Slasher basketball comedy made in Canada. Made at the end of a huge wave of Canadian produced cheapie college sex comedies comes this “Trashtapiece”. Totally a comedy and not an actual slasher however it does have a masked killer stalking the young basketball players and offing them one by one slasher style. A true spoof of 80s slashers (which oddly were also often Canadian produced.. (Canada doing it cheap and doing with style, only in the 80s).

Lots of extremely cheesy gags that must have been dated and lame before it was even released. The worst part of the movie is voice actor Fred Travalena who plays three characters and delivers awful super cheesy lines non stop as well as constantly awful impressions even worse then those of Rich Little. The movie even feels they need to cred him on the cover as I guess he was the only actor with any past before this movie. The main character Stan Bates would not act again until 8 years later he would be in Night of the Demons 3 then a fairly steady run of terrible Canadian television.  Stan is a basketball player that is not allowed to play and instead is made to be water boy for a very weird motley crew of awful basketball players. Stan does not know why the coach wont let him play and neither does his sort of goth girlfriend called Beckula, who may or may not be a vampire. Certain characters are set up to have motives to be the masked killer but everyone is basically nonsense so you wont even care if it ends up a red herring or not. Even the super creepy dean of the school might be the killer, but it wouldn’t really matter if its not. .. or is it the basketball team captain that thinks he is Elvis? … who cares, I just want to see the masked killer more. The hilarious mask and cheesy opening credits segments makes it fun enough for us. It totally can’t be the Elvis dude as he gets messed up early on … but you never know this movie feels like Airplane meets Scream, so anything is possible.

Occasional violence and super cheesy jokes with such a very weird mix of characters it almost feels like a Troma movie for a slightly younger audience. It’s not for kids but it is also not Toxic Avenger 4 either. I am sure any kid could watch it as any slightly adult jokes would go right over a kids head and the kills are all cartoony.

  However the basketball killers kills are fairly bad ass for things that seem like traps made by Wile E Coyote . Many people lose hands and a few lose their heads. You will not lose your head over this movie but if your tired of hearing about Raptors games just get some junk food maybe hit the bong and you just might find this a funny flick for weirdos like me.

I give it a 3 pointer from the Cheese ball line,

TubiTV Canada started streaming some movies …

TubiTV Canada started streaming some movies by Richard Mogg the maker from Bigfoot Ate my boyfriend… followers should remember that one. They added his movies Easter Bunny Massacre and Massage Parlor of Death… true backyard comedy cheese wonders . Richard knows about cheese and no budget horror. You should check out his book Analog Nightmares as well.

Moopet Pastor (2017, 49 mins)

Ok Weirdos . We screened what footage survived of Moopet Pastor at Terrible two day fest. Now the world can see it cause this is all there will ever be. Shall I start another film project someone soon? Only if people want it. Otherwise here you go.. laugh as you wish… Moopet Pastor (2017) (49 mins) Thanks for the support from others like the vortexx on horrorhost.net and eyesore and so on. As well at the people that funded our kickstarter to the 122 dollars haha cest la vie. Sadly losing a tooth, a house and traveling away co stars put an end to it. But here you go……

Plot (sort of) :The some what “off” priest and exorcist Father Colm Mcdwink must battle mysterious demons that endanger a young woman and the world when they take over the bodies of three innocent looking puppets!

Made by Riot 2 years ago but due to many issues the movie was never finished … sad story really.. so the surviving footage was edited together to make as close to a movie as possible.

Winners at the Terrible two day fest 2019 scre…

Over the weekend of films the awards of the DUMBTASTIC AWAY goes to CAMP DEATH 3 in 2D which was early on for a small crowd but those there seemed blown away by its shocking absurdity. One audience member said it felt like  Alejandro Jodorowsky joined up with Tex Avery and made a Friday the 13th sequel.  The basic plot is a slasher that losts its parts 1 and 2 lost in its own bizarre gags and cartoon humor and logic piling up jokes that is willing to insult everyone equally. Imagine if an 80s kids show made a slasher and adult swim writers added in the rude language. Imagine a hipster improve team was given hard drugs. The movie does admit it is stupid… and it is. 

Go review them on Amazon Prime and tell them they won the Dumbtastic award from the Terrible Two Fest Toronto!

The Shocktastic award went to House Shark. A phantom shark haunts a mans house as a very odd cast of characters form an unusual bound to go into the house and hunt the mysterious shark down. In what ended up being a spoof of the Shark genre in totally making it necessary to ever watch another shark movie again. I was sure it was going to be Clownado and it came a close runner up with a lot of first timers in the audience,  However Ron Bonk of House Shark wins the award for the second year in a row. At almost 2 hours I thought it would be too long for most people but the responses were very positive and the laughs kept rolling. One audience member said it was “Charmingly rude”.
