First, we have "The Terror". The movie, in essence, features a young Jack Nicholson (Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny!) stalking the ghost of a woman for two hours.
That's the movie. He stalks a ghost of a woman for two hours.
The next feature is , actually, entertaining. The movie, "Eegah" features that guy who played "Jaws" in the James Bond flms, I think???? He's about 7 feet tall and looks like Tony Robbins' and Ted Nugent's love child. Yeah, THAT guy.
He actually, isnt a bad looking guy....until he puts on his "Eegah" outfit, which REALLY makes him look like Ted Nugent.
Eegah, is a surviving neanderthal (much like Ted Nugent), and he lives in a cave at the top of a mountain...kind of like The Grinch....only minus the green. He doesnt have a dog named Max either, though he DOES keep the corpses of his dead, fellow neanderthal, family members in the cave. Dead Grandma neanderthal is a real "looker"!
Anyhoo, this dorky surfing dude, who likes to sing songs about girls...as long as they arent about the girl he is actually dating......
no, surfer dude likes to sing about OTHER girls, as a way of seducing his girl. Yeah, he's not very successful. But that's actually a good thing, when you learn that his girl is one of the most mouthy, irritating, complaining about everything, girls on the Earth.
That probably explains why the surfer dude is singing about OTHER girls...he probably wants to get as far away from this girl as possible, but doesnt want to directly break her heart, so he tries to do so by indirectly singing about other girls. The acting in this movie is...sub-par lets say.Read more ›
In one of the more high profile double features, this DVD set offers up two notorious winners "The Terror" and "Eegah!"
The Terror: (2 1/2 stars for movie, 3 1/2 stars for cult appeal, Elvira's shtick is that she's bored) I know many people consider this Roger Corman film a minor classic, but for my taste--it's a bit too earnest for its own good. I've watched it about five times in my life, I'm not sure why, and it always strikes me as an interesting curiosity without arousing much passion. Notable mostly for a lead performance by a young (and relatively expressionless) Jack Nicholson as well as an elderly Boris Karloff, the film plays as a otherworldly love story. Nicholson is enchanted by a mysterious woman and his pursuit of her leads him to an isolated castle and a secret long past. It's methodically paced and not particularly surprising--but there are simple pleasures to be had to see Nicholson stomp around in a fit of entitlement.Read more ›
