Editorial Reviews

In 1990, the founders of Cult Movies magazine, Michael Copner and Buddy Barnett, produced a one-shot magazine called Bela Lugosi Then And Now. That magazine was a big success and morphed into Cult Movies magazine, which ran for a total of 41 issues. Cult Movies magazine covered many topics, including classic horror, Karloff and Lugosi, Harry Langdon, Korla Pandit, Ed Wood, Godzilla films and many other modern, classic and obscure movie-related subjects. The word "Cult," when used in this context, refers to the enthusiasm and devotion some have to the film genres of Horror, Sci-Fi, B-movies, art-films, comedies and silents.

In 1999, Cult Movies TV was inspired in part by two earlier video documentaries that Copner and Barnett produced, Bela Lugosi Then And Now and On The Trail Of Ed Wood.

The popularity of the magazine peaked in the late 90's and culminated with this companion TV series and the well-attended Cult Movies Convention at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in October, 2000. The television episodes produced at Pasadena Community Access Corporation in Southern California by Kathe Duba-Barnett and Kevin C. Brechner were repeated frequently for several years, in Pasadena as well as other cable stations throughout the United States.

Starring Forrest J Ackerman ("Famous Monsters of Filmland"), Brad Linaweaver (Award winning author), Verne Langdon (Make-up wizard, Don Post Studios), Jack Hill (Spider Baby, Sheba Baby, Coffy), James Keane (actor, Apocalypse Now), John La Zar (actor, Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls), Ron Ford & Randal Malone (director & star of Hollywood Mortuary), Titus Moody (Rat Pfink and Boo Boo), Yvette Vickers (Attack Of The 50 Foot Woman.) Hosted by Michael Copner and Buddy Barnett with Marta Dobrovitz ("Marta's Movie Minute.")

First of all, I love cult movies, I loved the dearly departed "Cult Movies Magazine," and I love public access TV. This DVD has all of those elements rolled into one.

I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this DVD from Amazon, but I have enjoyed every episode of Cult Movies TV with its hosts Buddy Barnett and Michael Copner, who were both involved with Cult Movies Magazine at the time.

This Pasadena Public Access series aired in 1999. Like a lot of cult movies, this TV series is low budget but that's the beauty of it. The guests are infomative and fun and the hosts are knowledgable and respectful of the various cult figures who appear on the show.

The late, great Yvette Vickers has a whole show to herself and really shines. "Spider Baby" director Jack Hill's episode is great along with a short segment near the end of the show featuring Buddy Barnett. Buddy is usually the low-key one of the two hosts, but in this segment he shows a flair for comic acting.

Buddy is shown wearing a "turban," which appears to be made out of a bedsheet, wrapped around his head. On the front is a large piece of costume jewelry. He is hunkered over a small table with a crystal ball. Buddy then tries to conjure up the spirit of Stanley Kubrick to ask him this burning question: "Just what the heck was 'Eyes Wide Open' all about?"

If you love cult movies and low budget public access television, buy this DVD and have some fun. Hopefully, Alpha New Cinema will come out with a second volume of this cool little series. It could be called "Son of Cult Movies TV."

Michael Copner and Buddy Barnett lovingly started "Cult Movies" magazine in 1990, and in light of the huge success of the magazine started "Cult Movies TV," a cable access show filmed in Pasadena in 1999. This is a sampling of eight episodes, each of which features a guest connected to cult movies in some way. Most of the guests are great (Forrest J. Ackerman, Titus Moody [Titus Moede,] Yvette Vickers, etc.) and have genuine insight into the genre that few outsiders could ever get without media like this. I am frankly surprised at the inclusion of the episode featuring John LaZar, whose big claim to fame was appearing in Russ Meyer's "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls." To say that LaZar is a challenging guest is to understate the situation fairly dramatically, and I actually felt sorry for Buddy and Michael on this one, especially Michael who sits out most of the episode in conspicuously stunned silence. This episode is highly distracting at best and nearly unbearable at worst. Otherwise, the episodes are informative, upbeat, and fun.

The show is a typical cable access show from the 1990s: minimal sets, modest production qualities, occasional lack of direction, etc., but that shouldn't discourage true fans. While Copner and Barnett may not be the most polished interviewers ever, they know their subject and treat it respectfully while still having fun. Because they are also true fans of these movies they know what questions to ask, and what avenues to go down in the interviews: the Forry Ackerman and Titus Moody interviews were personal favorites (though I wish they had spent more time on Moody's Steckler productions,) while Jack Hill and the duo of Ron Ford and Randal Malone (director and star of "Hollywood Mortuary," among others) were also captivating.

Enjoyed watching these guys because you can tell they actual enjoyed and were knowledgeable about who they were interviewing, well most of the time!:) These guys remind me of how i would be if i ever got the chance to interview my film idols, unpretentious and they actually let the guest answer questions, imagine that! This was right before tv interviews went to hell , wish we had more guys like this doing interviews, just average Joe's that allowed the star to be the star and showed the guest the respect they deserve.

Worth it for the interview with Yvette. She's old here, but you'll still recognize her. Now that Yvette is no longer with us, this is the only TV interview of note.
