Arcade (1993) starring Megan Ward, Peter Billingsley, Seth Green, and A.J. Langer is worth watching for the actors alone. The movie itself has horrible special effects, that I loved! The acting is good and the story is a lot of fun. Basically, it is about a group of teenagers that start playing a new video game called ARCADE. None of them realize how dangerous the game is until the people who are playing it starts to disappear.
Bad Channels (1992) starring Paul Hipp, Martha Quinn, and Charlie Spradling, ended up being one of my favorite movies from the collection. I saw the trailer and thought the movie was going to be horrible, I was wrong. The acting is good and so are the special effects and creatures. The movie is about a disc jockey who after a six month suspension returns. That night his radio station is taken over by a space alien that transports and shrinks women. I found it really amusing.
Netherworld (1992): A young man inherits his late father's estate and is shocked to discover that his father wants to be resurrected. He meets a woman who seduces him and introduces him to black magic. I didn't love this movie. The problem with it is that it just doesn't flow well.
Seedpeople (1992): Starring Sam Hennings and Andrea Roth. A man returns to his home town to research a meteorite that landed there. He soon discovers that the town people are acting strangely and realizes he and everyone else is in a lot of trouble. This movie is an average sci-fi movie.Read more ›
Aside from the movies themselves, I figured I'd give some info about the packaging and presentation, since that's part of evaluating this product. This collection comes as a set of 5 full size DVD boxes inside a basic cardboard slipcase. Goofily enough, all 5 have identical cover and disc art, but have a cropped version of the poster for the film on the BACK of each box. I would have preferred individual artwork on each disc and a multi-disc DVD box, but that kind of thing costs more to produce.Read more ›
Oh dear. I really had to stop watching this. Wasn't horror at all, just a bad parody of horror sci-fi. If you like it goofy, you may enjoy it. It was a charming performance, but not at all what I was looking for, and I turned it off halfway through.
Much more like it. A voodoo story set right on the Bayou. All sorts of neat bird symbolism, some really pretty girls, a good story, and more tafia than I've ever seen before. Really nice movie, even good special effects! The one thing that ruined it for me (spoiler alert!!!): when we finally see the father's spirit, the makeup just doesn't work.
a) Since my birth, such strides have been made in cancer medicine that it can be said to have improved in every aspect beyond my wildest childhood dreams.
b) Since my birth, such strides have been made in the cause of world peace that it can be said to have improved in ever aspect beyond my wildest childhood dreams.
c) Since my birth, such strides have been made in computer graphics that it can be said to have improved in every aspect beyond my wildest childhood dreams.
Only one of the above statements is true. Can you guess which?
If Arcade had been Medicine Man or Apocalypse Now it might have had a shot at aging well. As it is...oh boy. The little actors here give it their hearts, and they are allowed to swear and get blood splattered on them, but it feels like a movie for kids that never existed. I don't think there was ever anybody who would have been impressed by the effects in this one, not even in the Middle Ages.
Look for Seth Green in a marginal role. Actually don't look. He's not worth it.
