Director: Matt Jaissle Starring: Deanna Cockrum, Ezekiel Alexander Enriquez, William Jassle, Rich Massey, Don Mature, Adolf Mulzer. USA. 1h 16m
It’s great to see that the truer elements of BMovies haven’t quite died out just yet. And Matt Jaissle is one of the busier directors, having a ton of interesting titles under his belt including… and then there’s the grindhouse epic of Revolution 666 blending together a pseudo Manson cult and a zombie Helter Skelter plot to destroy the world.

Director: Jon McBride and Tom Fisher
Starring: Jon McBride, Amy Chludzinski, Christopher A. Granger.USA. 1h 28m
For me this is one of the very definitions of BMovie, an illegal romp in the woods with a VHS camcorder as a bunch of friends desperately trying to film a feature length horror while on the run from a local park keeper.
The duo of directors managed to cobble together a cohesive movie however its production does drop a little bit on some levels, but you don’t really expect to have amazing special effects and wonderful acting then a movie is forged around ducking and diving around a local park. Film is borderline so bad it’s brilliant, while still retaining a small cult following it’s definitely something you would need to see to tick off all of your bingo card of cannibal hillbilly movies.

Director: Jeff Burr
Starring. Kate Hodge, William Butler, Ken Foree, Tom Hudson, Viggo Mortensen, Joe Unger, RA Mihailaoff. USA. 1h 26m.
Jeff Burr is the king of terrible remakes, okay that’s unfair but he’s never really had a commercially successful one, but it doesn’t mean that they aren’t adored by fans of bad horror, I find his films quite watchable but agree that they can be under par, but fun none the less.
This box office disaster was see a return to the cult classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre family but these are more like the Beverly Hillbilliys. The opening of the film see’s Leatherface slaughtering a young girl with a sledgehammer, cutting off her face to make a new mask as her sister watches on silently, the young girl, Sara escapes into the woods.

Day 24 of 31
Director: Ruggero Deodato
Starring: Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, and Carl Gabriel Yorke . Italy. 1h
Long before the Blair Witch (1999) we had the highlight of video nasties and the most talked about was Cannibal Holocaust a simple but effective found footage film. In an era when it wasn’t so much about the technical aspect but an opportunity to show some ”real life nasties”. Despite being the central part of Deodato’s Cannibal trilogy it was the forerunner, almost running the other two films; Jungle Holocaust (1977) and Cut and Run (1985) into obscurity. But the first return to man eaters hit many sensitive spots and turned the film into a cult classic.
Filmed on location in the Amazon Rainforest on a budget of $100,000 but earning $2 Million at the box office it stars Robert Kerman who’s better known for his pornographic work, the most famous being Debbie Does Dallas. Continue reading Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
