Movie Reviews

Waenings from Space
Rory Matthews | Merced, Ca. | 10/17/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The movies were entertaining but the video transfer to DVD was really bad."
Not So Bad, if you like this sort of fare...

"I love films that are "so bad, they're good". Low production values, and lousy transfers keep me from giving this 5 stars. ZONTAR: The Thing from Venus is a remake of Roger Corman's far-superior "It Conquered the World" (not available on DVD), though if they thought they improved on the original, they are sorely mistaken. Anthony Houston hams it up unforgivably in the Lee Van Cleef role; John Agar is no match for Peter Graves; and sorely missing is the great Beverly Garland. The quality of transfer is really bad, worst of the three. SLIPSTREAM was the most enjoyable, mostly because of a wonderful performance from Bob Peck. Mark Harmon is almost unrecognizable, Kitty Aldridge is tuff as nails, and Bill Paxtom hams it up worse than most of the roles for which he's known. I liked the plot, and the developments; cameos from Ben Kingsley, F. Murray Abraham & Robbie Coltrane. I enjoyed it; a bittersweet ending. Best of the three. SCI-FIGHTERS was OK, with a really strong performance from Roddy Piper, and Billy Drago is a laff-riot as the bad guy (not intentionally). Part zombie, part Tarzan and part caveman, it's hard to tell which direction he'll go next. There are plenty of really bad films that are simply trash; there are redeeming qualities in each of these, though they're all pretty bad, especially ZONTAR. I guess I liked them because I wasn't bored. That says a lot. Make popcorn, kick back, and forget everything you may have learned about great film-making ...and enjoy. At the price, you could do a lot worse."

"The other two movies have higher production values... but I think the high point is the Larry Buchanan bad movie classic "Zontar, the Thing from Venus"! Really lives up to its reputation. This DVD case has 3D plastic lenticular image of alien that becomes more monstrous."
