“I just love a man who gives you head – and lets you keep it!”

Directed by Gilbert Adler, 1996’s Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood stars Dennis Miller (Saturday Night Live) as Rafe Guttman, a wisecracking detective who is called upon to investigate some strange happenings at a bordello on the edge of town.

After her delinquent brother Caleb (Corey Feldman) goes missing, Catherine Verdoux (Erika Eleniak) enlists the services of a private eye. After a night of heavy drinking and debauchery, Caleb and a friend visit an underground brothel in the guise of a funeral home, never to be seen again.

Turns out the whorehouse is owned and operated by Madam Lilith (Angie Everhart), a redheaded vampire whose lustful servants are ready and willing to suck patrons dry! Armed with a Super Soaker filled with holy water and a battle ax, Guttman and televangelist Reverend Jimmy Current (Chris Sarandon of Fright Night) must fight their way out of Lilith’s den of sin and save the captive Catherine.

The Goonies 30

Back in 1985, Richard Donner, Steven Spielberg, and Chris Columbus created a tale of a bunch of outcast kids searching for buried pirate treasure. It doesn’t necessarily sound like a classic. But to those of Generations X and Y, the adventures of Mikey, Mouth, Data, Chunk, and Sloth are those of legends. This past weekend, Sunday to be precise, The Goonies celebrated its 30th birthday.

World Premiere | End Films

Dick Miller is the last of the great American character actors. Whether sharing the screen with Nicholson, Hanks, Schwarzenegger, or The Ramones, Dick has been stealing scenes since his screen debut in 1955.

Miller has worked with some of the great directors: Scorsese, Corman, Dante, Cameron, Demme, and more. If you’re an avid moviegoer, you definitely know his face, but few know his name and even fewer know his story: an aspiring writer turned accidental actor.

Directed by Elijah Drenner, That Guy Dick Miller documents Miller’s funny and unexpected story, featuring interviews from the directors, producers, co-stars, and friends who have helped make him Hollywood’s leading “that guy.”

Digging Up The Sci-Fi Past Of ’80s Pop Superstar Rick Springfield

Rick Springfield - Battlestar GalacticaI was reminded of singer/actor Rick Springfield yesterday when I read about what’s apparently an annual Rick Springfield Cruise, with this year’s voyage taking off in November to the Caribbean. Now, I’m not even gonna front, I would totally go on this cruise if I wasn’t prone to seasickness, especially since I have about ten girlfriends who I know would go with me.

If you don’t know who Rick Springfield is, he was a popular chart-topping music artist here in the United States in the 1980s and is most famous for his hit song “Jessie’s Girl” (you totally know it). But before Springfield wished that he had Jessie’s girl back in 1981, did you know he was in the original 1970s television series Battlestar Galactica? That’s right, in 1978, he appeared in an episode called “Saga of a Star World” as Commander Adama’s younger son Lieutenant Zac Adama, a Viper pilot with the Galactica (BSG fans of all eras know the deal with Zac, right?).

Springfield’s foray into the world of sci-fi didn’t stop with his short stint on BSG. Matter of fact, the musician/actor has accumulated quite a bit of geektastic cred in his over 40-year career.

In 1983 (after leaving the soap opera General Hospital), he went back to focusing on his music, experimenting with the synth-heavy pop style of the time on songs like “Human Touch.” To go with the song was a music video — also on the rise back then thanks to the birth of MTV (back when they actually played videos). A sci-fi setting was chosen for this video, of which Springfield was front and center.

Former Teen Star Corey Haim Dies At 38

2010-03-10-corey_haimFormer teen star Corey Haim died this morning in Los Angeles of an accidental overdose. He was 38.

the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the actor’s death to TV station KTLA. He was found unresponsive in his apartment at around 3:30 am and was later pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank.

The Canadian actor is best known for his childhood starring roles against onscreen buddy Corey Feldman in the 1980s in License to Drive and The Lost Boys, movies that quickly led to his teen idol status. While the 80s brought great success for Haim, the following decade did not follow suit. Haim’s roles consisted mostly of direct-to-video flops and the actor struggled to get back his once successful career while dealing with bankruptcy, drug dependency, and stints in rehab.

DVD Review: ‘Friday The 13th’ Parts IV, V & VI Deluxe Editions

Friday The 13th, Parts 4-6 Deluxe Edition DVDsFriday The 13th
Part IV, Part V, Part VI
Directors: Joseph Zito, Danny Steinman, Tom Mcloughlin
Starring: Kimberly Beck, Crispin Glover, Corey Feldman, Melanie Kinnaman, John Sheperd, Shavar Ross, Thom Mathews, Jennifer Cooke, Tony Goldwyn
Paramount Home Entertainment
Released Date: June 16, 2009

In case you’ve yet to notice Paramount Home Entertainment has been putting out new Deluxe Editions of the Friday the 13th movies. First they released parts I, II, and III (Read: DVD Reviews: ‘Friday The 13th’ 1-3 Deluxe Editions), and now we have IV, V, and VI!

As I’ve said before: when it comes to Friday the 13th, it’s almost impossible to review them as single movies. Again, the franchise as a whole and the character Jason Voorhees is more of its own life force than a bunch of movies. You either hate Friday the 13th, or you love every cheesy, gory second of it.

With this set of three flicks, we move out of the realms of the earliest Friday the 13th movies, and into some of the ones that required them to try and shake things up and add some fresh elements and stories to the mix. We also come to the point where Jason transforms from a horrifying and seemingly unstoppable killer, to an undead and definitely unstoppable killer!

Let it begin…again…after it had ended!

Lost Boys: The Tribe DVDLost Boys: The Tribe
Directed by P.J. Pesce
Written by Hans Rodionoff
Starring Tad Hilgenbrink, Angus Sutherland, Autumn Reeser, Corey Feldman, Shaun Sipos, Moneca Delain
Warner Premiere
Release Date: July 29, 2008

After Chris is kicked off his surfing team and loses his endorsements, he and his sister head off to the sleepy town of Luna Bay to lay low and hopefully start anew. Within twenty-four hours of arriving in the town, he discovers that his one-time surfing idol Shane lives in the town, meets up with a delusional surfboard shaper who claims to be a vampire hunter named Edgar Frog, is invited to a party at Shane’s who picks up Chris’ sister Nicole, and has sex with a woman who turns out be a vampire.

Confused, bewildered, and none-to-happy that Nicole also seems to be displaying symptoms of vampirism, Chris turns to Edgar for some unbelievable advice. Edgar, who has been hunting vampires for more than twenty years, quickly catches Chris up to speed with a stack of comic books. He tells Chris that Nicole is only half-vampire — as long as they can kill the head vampire before she feeds, she will be saved. And with that, Chris makes the fateful decision to become half-vampire himself so he has the strength to fight, while Edgar loads up on stakes and holy water to dispatch this latest tribe of bloodsuckers who have invaded his town.
