There is nothing tame about these shrews. Unlike Shakespeare's shrews, 2016's "Attack of the Killing Shrews!" brings us blood, carnage, cheesy special creature effects, and annoying mascot drama (you'll see, but it is quite satisfying). In this Ken Cosentino film, an epic re-imaging of the 1959 classic hits our screen in bright, splattered red. With a hearty endorsement from Troma's Lloyd Kaufman, some hot babes, mad scientists, square jawed heroes, the military, and toothy creatures converge in horrific comedy.

Ahhh! Nothing like the horror/scifi/exploitation sub-genre in film. We have to give 2011's "Spaceship Terror" creator, Harry Tchinski, a lot of credit. Not only does he place six space babes on a cavernous space ship, but he also turns the temperature up to 115 degrees so the lovelies will have to strip to their undies while being hunted by a cannibal fiend. The nubile and sweaty beauties of "Spaceship Terror" will be in for fates worse than death.

For those of us who saw 1988's "Space Mutiny" when it first came out, unanswered questions have plagued us ever since. The nubile Lieutenant Lamont (Billy Second) presents a macabre query which has haunted us for decades. The pretty officer is blown away by heavies, but emerges unharmed steering the ship a few minutes later. How can that be? Then there is the uncomfortable question of Cisse Cameron. The actress plays the leading space-babe in this film. For almost 30 years B movie fans have all been wrestling with an awkward, unspoken question. Is Cisse Cameron, space-babe, in fact a space-babe, or is she too reminiscent of our grandmothers? However weird this sounds, her body says one thing, but her face...well...you be the judge.

In the tradition of Chopping Mall we have more great looking teens with a brilliant idea. Instead of a mall, we visit a furniture store where four hunks and four babes have a sure fire idea for an orgy. When teen-aged hormones talk, nothing can go wrong! As the lingerie and boxers fly off, decapitations and impalement cannot be far behind. Today we look at 1988's "Hide and Go Shriek," directed by Skip Schoolnik.
They've just graduated high school and their horny. Only one thing to do...sneak into a furniture store as it closes and have lots of pre-marital sex. Yeah, I know, we've all done it. Kim (Annette Sinclair) seems to be the head skank with lots of experience in pre-marital sex. She has some very slinky linger ie which she lends to virgin Malissa (Ria Pavia). Enough of the backstories, let's fast-forward to the orgy. Oh, by the way, some transvestite (Scott Kubay) has knifed a prostitute (Robin Turk) just after the opening credits. More on him later. As the frolicking begins, head skank Kim has a brilliant idea. Play Hide and Seek! Fortunately for our virile and potent teens, this does not hamper their ability to have pre-marital sex. What does hamper their amorous activities is a slasher that is also in the store. One by one...yep...you guessed it...the killer starts picking off the teens.
In underwear, or boxers, or completely nude, the beautiful begin to fall. Malissa has her head bashed in and her beau, Shawn (Scott Fults) is spiked, and the carnage begins. The rest of the kills are quite imaginative, as one poor schmuck will be impaled by a mannequin arm, and another decapitated by an elevator. Eventually the survivors realize they are being hunted, but by who? What of the aforementioned transvestite? Is he in the store? Throw in another suspect or two and we have a fun version of Hide and Seek.
Will our teens mount a counter-strike and turn the tables on their nemesis? Will head-skank, and almost always topless Kim suffer the cruelest death of all her friends because of her immoral persona? Will 1980s Hollywood seek to vilify the psycho-transvestite community in this slasher film? There will be lots of gratuitous nudity, some exotic strip-teases, imaginative gore, and more gratuitous nudity in this slasher offering. Ignore all the bore-athons from this month's Golden Globes show and enjoy the carnal pleasures of "Hide and Go Shriek."

What do beautiful college coeds do at all women colleges? Thanks to 1980s horror films we know. They hang out in alluring lingerie, talk about pre-marital sex with handsome professors, and maybe throw an occasional pillow. In 1987's "Aenigma," directed by Lucio Fulci, they also die in tortuous ways. A warning to all you young ladies in college: If pre-marital sex is more of a priority to you than your art history class, you will probably be decapitated while in a state of nudity. If you don't believe me, ask any Italian horror director.

Erotic and dark are two adjectives that best describe 1960's Italian horror film, "The Vampire and the Ballerina." Quirky is also a fitting descriptor. For example, when a troupe of sultry ballerinas find out a vampire is stalking them, they quickly put together an improv routine high on eroticism and ominousness which features the helpless damsels put upon by a dark force. What initially seems like a standard Dracula-theme plot, quickly takes a turn to add some neat mystery to the story. Heavy on beautiful, buxom damsels, and maybe a couple of shapely vampires, "The Vampire and the Ballerina," gratuitous and horrific, is a neat take on the vampire legend.
Our beautiful damsels arrive at an inn in a town where local babes have been bitten by a vampire. On their first night, the lovely Brigitte is bitten and turned by a grotesque bloodsucker. The next evening finds Luisa (Helene Remy), her BFF Francesca (Tina Gloriani), and Francesca's fiance, Luca (Isarco Ravaloli) lost and finding refuge in an old castle. They are greeted by the sultry Countess (Brigitte Castor) and her apparent servant, Herman (Walter Brandi). When Luisa gets lost in the hallways, she is preyed upon and bitten by that grotesque vampire. The trio flee the castle, but now Luisa is under the spell of that vampire.

Who, or what, is the South Sea Queen? Beautiful seductress and ravager of men is a fitting description of this siren. She lures men to her island castle where she seduces them. Pre-marital sex follows, but this ends up very bloody for the awe-struck guys. See, our seductress has an eel living up her...well...you know. When the man's...well...let's call it a John Thomas...When he slips his John Thomas into the queen's...well, you know...our eel friend turns into a sacred dagger and snips off the poor schmuck's John Thomas. Today we take a peek at a classic from Indonesia, 1989's "The Lady Terminator."
