Morning Movie: The Stuff (1985)

The Stuff

This movie, man. This movie. It’s hilarious, and bizarre and everything else. The Stuff is about a couple of people that find something in the snow that tastes absolutely delicious. This happens in the first 5 minutes, and it’s already one of the best movies ever made. It continues with these people marketing this tasty, creamy, snow-like treat as a form of yogurt or ice cream. So, you’ve got Yogurt, Ice Cream, and The Stuff. Just amazing. So, an investigator gentleman starts looking into The Stuff because it’s causing some crazy reactions in the nation’s children, where he runs across a food company executive who is also looking into The Stuff, and they run into some crazy stuff (pun intended).

No spoilers, but needless to say, The Stuff isn’t an innocent dairy (DAIRY ISN’T INNOCENT!) treat like ice cream or yogurt, and it’s not a taste non-dairy alternative like almond milk or coconut milk ice cream. Nope. It’s something else entirely.

This movie is actually pretty decent, but the whole premise is batcrap crazy. The Stuff is real, and it’s spectacular. (more…)

Morning Movie: Frankenstein’s Daughter (1958)

frankenstein's daughter

I’m watching this for the first time now, but by all accounts, this movie is absolutely hilariously ridiculous. The story centers around Dr. Frankenstein’s grandson or something that decides to start up the family business. During this time, the new Doctor Frankenstein, working in a fellow doctor’s lab, decides to use a lady as a guinea pig. And then we get Frankenstein’s daughter. Contrary to the above poster, the monster is actually a female who looks so incredibly bizarre, and if that’s not insane enough for you, just think about the plot once more.

This movie is streaming on Hulu, as well as YouTube (because I assume it’s Public Domain). Good or bad (definitely bad), this is the morning movie for September 18, 2014! Happy Hauntings! (more…)

Morning Movie: Children of the Corn

Children of the Corn

I know I didn’t post a movie of the day yesterday, so if you choose, you can file this as yesterday’s post. Anyway, Children of the Corn is movie that stands out amongst other horror movies. Based off Stephen King’s short story, this film lays besides King’s other standouts in the themes that he does so well: children, religion, and supernatural elements. (more…)

Morning Movie: Fright Night (1985)

fright_night_1985_posterFright Night is easily one of my favorite horror movies, and each year on October 1st, I make the time to sit down and watch this movie and The Lost Boys (that’ll come later). This movie is the perfect one to get you all started on your October Halloween-a-thon.

Fright Night consists of several things that make it wonderful. Vampires that bridge the gap of being attractive and absolutely scary, a crazed sidekick in Evil Ed, a ridiculously jerkish main character who seems insane, a hilarious wingman in Billy Cole, several genius one-liners (“Where you going, pencil dick!?”), and a really good sense of humor in light of a terrifying situation. It’s available on XFinity’s OnDemand service right now under the FearNet section, and I wouldn’t hesitate to give it a watch.

Check out the trailer after the jump! (more…)
