Night of the Lepus (spoilers) -i'm tired, so there may be mistakes   
12:59am 27/10/2007
 
mood: groggy
Night Of The Lepus
director: William F. Claxton
time: 88 mins
note: This was a NOVEL before a movie. It must be the 3rd worst book ever published. Also, I was half-asleep when I watched this.
Tag line: They were born that tragic moment when science made its great mistake... now from behind the shroud of night they come, a scuttling, shambling horde of creatures destroying all in their path.

summary: Cole Hillman's Arizona ranch is plagued with 'mongrel' rabbits, and he wants to employ an ecologically sound control method. As a favor to college benefactor Hillman, college president Elgin Clark calls in zoologist Roy Bennett to help. Bennett immediately begins injecting rabbits with hormones and genetically mutated blood in an effort to develop a method of disrupting rabbit reproduction. One of the test subjects escapes, resulting in a race of bloodthirsty, wolf-sized, man-, horse-, and cow-eating bunnies. Eventually the National Guard is called in for a final showdown with the terrorizing rabbits.



Bottom line: I'd choose this if it was between the movie and death, otherwise, I don't think I'll be watching it again. EVER again.

Pigs - 1972
aka Daddy's Deadly Darling
Daddy's Girl (USA)
Horror Farm
Lynn Hart
Pigs (USA) (recut version)
Roadside Torture Chamber (USA) (reissue title)
The Killer
The Killers
The Strange Exorcism of Lynn Hart
The Strange Love Exorcist

directed by Marc Lawrence
note: apparently the Troma version is censored for some unknown reason...(that's the vers. I watched)
time: 80 mins
Tag line: Once the pigs tasted blood... No one could control their hunger!!

summary: (spot the nepotism!) Toni Lawrence plays Lynn, a disturbed young woman who escapes from a mental hospital where she was committed for killing her abusive father who raped her. Stealing a nurse's uniform and car, Lynn ends up in a small California town where she meets and shacks up with Zambrini (Marc Lawrence), an old farmer who runs the local motel and roadside cafe. Zambrini also owns a group of pigs that he keeps in a pen behind his house who have somehow developed a taste for human flesh. When Lynn begins killing a number of men who remind her of her dead father, Zambrini helps her out by disposing of the bodies to the pigs. Investigating the disappearances, the local sheriff eventually becomes suspicious of Lynn's past and a private investigator, hired by the hospital to find her, slowly close in on Lynn.

Bottom line: If you love B-horror, why haven't you watched this yet?

Psychic Killer (1975)
directed by Ray Danton
Tag line: "First it drives you mad, then it kills and kills and kills!"



summary: Mental patient Arnold Masters, hospitalized for a murder he didn't commit, learns astral projection--the art of leaving one's physical body and transporting the soul someplace else--from a fellow inmate. Upon his release, Arnold uses his new powers to bump off the people he holds responsible for his arrest, his mother's death while he was imprisoned and the price of meat! Lt. Morgan and Lt. Anderson are the cops on his trail, while his caring shrink, Dr. Scott, tries to prevent any more deaths.

Bottom line: Some parts are a bit slow and unbelievable, but you love B-horror, so you can handle it. Watch it once, but don't base your life around it.

Boogeyman

Boogeyman (2005)
directed by Stephen T. Kay
Tag line: You thought it was a just a story... but it's real.

summary:Set in Chicago, 'Boogeyman' tells the haunting tale of a young man traumatized by memories of terrible events he experienced in his childhood bedroom and who, years later, reluctantly returns home to face his fears of a monstrous entity that could be real or merely a figment of his imagination.


Best Quotes:
Eh...none that stood out.

Best Death:
Actually...I guess the father since that was pretty much all the violence. Did any one really die? They were "taken", which is probably just an excuse to splurge on the computer generation needed for the actual boogeyman and his kick-ass trench coat.

Biggest Cheese:
The close ups on the door knobs...continually...Nope, the doorknob is still not scary.

Truely Grotesque:
Uh...actually nothing. The death with his father was more humorous than scary (think human yo yo). I guess the Boogeyman just invited people into his closet and just never...let them go...

Monster meter:
So, the boogeyman's power is that he can jump closets and put on clothes?.... I give him a 1 out of 10, being bald helped, but...wearing a sweater-vest under the trech lost you points.

Cliche factor:
People calling people crazy and saying, "You're not making sense!" Plus the "little girl is actually dead" surprise, that was completely unsurprising.

Actual good:
1 star out of 5 - it's a horrible movie

Good is Bad:
3 1/2 stars out of five - it's campy, silly, and fun to tease.

Logic, let me introduce you to this window:
Pretty much the whole movie. It didn't make much sense.

Notes: I don't think it's a horror movie at all, but a allegorical movie about homosexuality. The whole closet thing, his father "left" his mother because of the "boogeyman". In the end he had to "face it". Hmm...I almost wish it was...It would make a hell of a lot more sense.

Still, it's amusing how hard it tries to make doorknobs and closets, including clothes, scary.

Bottom line: Good for a laugh, but not much else.
