Where do you find this stuff, DM?

That Baron Against the Demons looks incredible, like a crazier Keita Amemiya film. I must see it.

By God it does, doesn't it? Amazing. And it's like 4 years old. How'd my radar miss this one? It's also called STAR TROOPERS. It's the STARCRASH for a new generation.

It's a rampaging killer Bigfoot flick for 3/4 and then turns into PLAN 9 with aliens and zombies at the climax. Plenty of booby shots and cheesy gore. The sudden double-dream ending is a head-scratcher. Yes, that's George Kennedy from NAKED GUN. WEIRD flick. And a must see POS. If you want my respect, that it. Or atleast a high-5.

Ka-razy. I can't begin to understand the plot much more than "post/pre-apocalyptic holy crusade" (mostly due to the characters monologuing in a diarrhea stream of anime-dub speak). But I didn't really care. If you love gonzo schlock, the charm of hand-made miniatures and puppets, and genre mashups, track this down. It felt like a do-it-yourself adaptation of a European Heavy Metal comic story through and through. Frezatto as directed by Brett Piper or a Troma alum.

There's a dirty brown FARSCAPE or LEXX feel to the world (only cheaper). No where near as polished as say a 5TH ELEMENT (or even CAPT EO). The Keita Amemiya comparison is dead on as I was constantly reminded of stuff like MOON OVER TAO, which in itself is a good flick for this thread...

My brother and I have always had a soft spot for Prisoners of the Lost Universe starring Richard Hatch and John Saxon. Another Terry Marcel masterpiece alongside Hawk the Slayer.

I've read about the film two or three times over the years and still can't recall the synopsis off the top of my head, I remember the one sheet though.

Cuneyt Arkin is a Turkish icon.

I don't think you're missing much in Future Kill Darkmite. The general consensus amongst B-movie sites is that its a really boring movie with a really cool cover. It doesn't even take place in the future.

Any of the films of Antonio Margheriti's Gamma 1 Quadrilogy actually worth checking out?

Came across a couple of posters for Wild Wild Planet and The War of the Planets and they've done their job of making the films look a lot of fun. They wouldn't be misleading would they? The laser-Ray Girls! The Deadly Doll-men! The Four Armed Strangler!...

Speaking of, the resume of Godfrey Ho probably qualifies for this thread.

There's a car chase scene which simply put, is a tour de force.

The gist of the story is that a mad scientist(a transsexual, Rex Harrison look-alike) believes "he-she's" are the way forward for the human race and no one, including Franco Nero better get in his way.

Here's the trailer. American chewers should know that TCM (article) are showing the movie next month on the 19th of July.

This looks like a loving homage to the old serials...

I don't think Accion Mutante (1992) has been mentioned yet. It's a Spanish film set in a Gilliamesque dystopia in which hideous mutants are a despised underclass. So they form a revolutionary group and fight back. Best running gag is a guy who remains attached to his dead (stuffed) siamese twin.

AOld thread, but it seems like the appropriate place to bring up Slipstream (the 1989 Lisberger film.)

I'd probably categorize it as a fascinating mess. It feels like a whole lot of story and thematic development is just missing from the film altogether; plot threads and character development alike tend to make huge, sudden jumps rather than smooth transitions (the development of a relationship between Bill Paxton and Kitty Aldridge's characters happens entirely over the course of a couple of conversations, which we only see in snippets,) and there are aspects of the story that feel like they should be important but are never really explained - in particular, both Mark Hamill's villainous cop/bounty hunter and Bob Peck's altruistic fugitive have a quasi-theological bent to many of the things they say that feels like it should have some kind of significance, but I'll be damned if I can figure out what.

Mess aside, though, it's just a captivatingly strange little film - rocking the post-apocalyptic junk-culture setting, in a world where some kind of massive environmental catastrophe has left the surface of the Earth blanketed in a perpetual high-speed windstorm and driven the surviving remnants of humanity down into canyons below the "Slipstream," able to travel between settlements only by means of aircraft. I especially like the wide variety of different scavenger cultures the film establishes, although it would be nice to get a better feel for some of them. All the leads are pretty engaging, even though Paxton and Aldridge's characters speak almost exclusively in snappy one-liner retorts and Peck's in cryptic musings. Mark Hamill is very clearly working to establish himself as Not Just Luke Skywalker here, and he does a good job at it - he walks a fine line with being scary and not being a loony cartoon psychopath, and his character is just pretty amusing to boot. And Elmer Bernstein's score is just magnificent - the man could make brushing your teeth sound epic, and he's in fine form here.

It doesn't feel like it's as good a film as it should've been, but Slipstream is certainly worth a look.

It's Shaw Bros and martial arts clearly, but this trailer doesn't even begin to sell it for how utterly BIZARRE it is...
