Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)
4/10

As small town factory is selling Halloween masks to kids who are to put on the masks as they watch a special Halloween give-a-way on TV, a young woman and her befriended Dr try to discover why her father was murdered by a strange man in a suit.

A lot of sneaking around, laying low, and running around again, but the chills and suspense are far and few inbetween. I agree with Roger Ebert who said Season of the Witch is a collage of pieces of much better films. Even when the antagonist Conal Cochran, the evil factory owner (played well by Dan O'Herlihy) gives the big reveal speech, it comes up lacking in coherence and completeness. We never find out what Cochran gets out of doing what he's doing. I did like the premise and its metaphorical commentary, but wasn't the film producers doing exactly what the film seems to condemn? Film has a 25% rotten rating Audience Score of over 25k votes at Rotten Tomatoes.com.

Let me ask you gals...

In Halloween 3, what was evil factory owner Conal Cochran going to get out of doing what he did? What was his payoff?

Maybe they were a Doomsday Cult?

Maybe. I think the idea is for nice planting weather and good crops, but who knows. Here's the clip.

E.T. (1982). Haven't seen this in forever, but still finds it holds up very well and still can bring on the old waterworks, even to a cranky curmudgeon like myself. Dee Wallace is lovely and quite appealing as the single Mom trying to hold it together and it's hard to believe Drew Barrymore was once so young and unsullied-mean, I know. But hopefully, she will conquer any Demons and stay healthy. *****

Night of the Comets (1984)
7/10

Two teen sisters wake up to find virtually all humans vaporized by comets. They search for other survivors, but might not be happy with who, or what, they find.

The acting, dialogue and sentimentality are quite good in this. The wide angle shots of empty big Los Angeles streets are impressive and impactful. The way the story plays out, especially the last third is nothing original or particularly exciting.

The Abomonation ( 1986 )



Fuck Me Running/10

Synopsis:
An old woman coughs up what she believes to be a tumor whilst watching the local trash evangelist on t.v., naturally she thinks itís a miracle and tosses it in the garbage. But this couldnít be further from the truth. That night, while her 30yr old teenage son, Cody, sleeps. The bloody lung cookie gains sentience ( also teeth ) and crawls itís way into his mouth, slowly taking control of him and multiplying and needing to feed, ultimately driving him to go on the best homicidal rampage a $6.32 shot on shiteo budget can afford. Hallelujah!



Oh Jesus, lol
The funny thing is, Iím pretty sure I rented this from a Ma and Pa video store back in the late 80s, because this isnít the kinda flick youíre likely to forget. From the cringe worthy dubbing, excessive same-ing, gratuitous and ultra low budget blood and effects, non existent character development, and pants-on-head plot, ( coupled with absofuckinglutely stellar performances, lemme tell ya ) The Abomination is one of the very best, brick camera lensed crapfests the bowels of the genre has to offer. Simultaneously worse than any Violent Shits, or AxeíEms, or Wood Chipper Massacres (... Well, maybe not that one.), while managing to be infinitely more entertaining. This movie is absolute nonsense, and itís fucking hilarious.

A guy having his head chainsawed off, then watching his neck spew creamed corn for five minutes, is one of two standout highlights featured in this grainy pile. The other being the aforementioned televangelist sitting down to take the loudest ADRíd dump in history ( think Harry from Dumb and Dumber caliber ), only to have his toilet morph into one of the titular creatures, which eats him alive mid shit.

Bottom Line: If youíre lookiní for some Z grade crap, look no further. Weíre talkiní Manos with gore and puppets level stuff here. So worth it!
