Kiss Daddy Goodbye

Pendragon Films Ltd.

Starring: Fabian Forte, Marilyn Burns, Jon Cedar

Review by El Chupacabra

The plot is simple two psychic children use their abilities to reanimate their murdered father’s corps and seek revenge on the biker gang that killed him. Cool concept right? Well that is where the cool stops. A small part of me died while watching this film.

Most of the talent was decent, they may have taken high school drama, but the children (who are featured in 90% of the film) have all the acting talent of unmanned Muppets. 50% film’s dialogue is silent telepathic communication between the children that is supposed to understood by their facial expressions and body-language, thankfully they will occasionally speak out loud during these conversations just so you don’t get lost. The one truly talented actor in the cast was Bill Randa who played Guy Nicolas (the father) and he only had a small role before his character is murdered and  reanimated as a mute. the over all ability of the actors was mid-range but for the children’s talent will knock down my score to a 1.5.

The picture quality of Kiss Daddy Goodbye is standard for films shot in the late 70’s early 80’s with a few sloppy splices. over all I’d score it a 3.

As for rewatch value. There were some ok nude scenes but to actually watch the movie all the way through again you’d have to put a gun to both my heads and pull the trigger to the one on top. I give it a 1.

Hello to all Sock Puppet faithfuls. I’ve been inactive since my first story and to rectify that I’d like start a blog I’ve been thinking about for quite some time. So I El Chupacabra  would like to formally announce the launch of my Budget Horror Movie Review “I’ll spend the five buck watch the crap and tell you about it, so you don’t waste the brain cells.”

I’ll be using a three stage ranking system based on picture quality, acting ability, and rewatch value all based on a 1-5 scoring 1 being the worst 5 the best. Well stay tuned for my first review of the film Kiss Daddy Goodbye.

Rumors of Evil

Posted in Game On with tags , , on June 6, 2008 by gamelord

 

When you think of video games, a few famous series will undoubtedly come to mind. When you think of horror video games, one particular famous series immediately comes to mind: Resident Evil. Resident Evil 4 was a stellar game, earning amazing reviews all across the board from IGN, Game Informer, to Joystiq. The sequel, Resident Evil 5, looks to copy the success but still launch the series to new heights of horror delights. For simple proof, check out this and other videos, courtesy of gamespot.

Not much is known about the game, though the rumors are aplenty. What we DO know is that Resident Evil lead man and Code Veronica co-star Chris Redfield is once again taking the lead roll. Another thing we know, as confirmed by producer Takeuchi Jin, is that the game will take place in a remote village in Africa. Finally, as for the game fitting into the time line, Resident Evil 5 takes place 10 years after the destruction of Raccoon City. However these little tidbits of knowledge have led to quite a bit of rumors.

For starters the location of Africa, from what we’ve seen bears a bit of resemblance to a certain flashback by one Billy Coen from Resident Evil Zero. If that IS the case will Lt. Coen finally make his return to the Resident Evil Universe. My money is on yes.

Another rumor is the identity of the Brown haired beauty Chris interacts with int he video seen earlier in this post. The smart money says that it is Chris’ little sister Claire Redfield, though I harbor a bit of doubt. At the end of the video Chris says “Don’t worry, my last partner was a woman.” Wouldn’t Clair already know that? We’ll see. Speaking of beauty’s, past videos, all of which can be seen on Gamespot, show a mysterious blonde women. Could it be Sherry Birken, freed from Wesker’s imprisonment? This is a possibility, but hard to call just yet. I wouldn’t put it past capcom to sneak one in there.

The last item to address isn’t a rumor, but speculation. What causes the violent behavior in these African people? Now based on the video we’ve seen it appears to be something similar to the plaugas from Resident Evil 4, however look more zombie-like then the ganados. Perhaps Wesker has been experimenting with the plaugas, mixing it with the T-virus? Again, Capcom has been mum and I doubt they will reveal anything anytime soon.

One thing is for sure. Capcom is looking to replicate the success of Resident Evil 4 with the latest iteration in this classic franchise. And by the looks of things, they’re damn well gonna. Oh, one more rumor confirmed: Enemies with chainsaws are back. Fuck.

Rob Bresser’s Drink of the Month – June 2008

Posted in Drink of the Month with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 5, 2008 by reverendthor

This month is a drink truly suited for royalty. And as such takes quite a bit of time to prepare. I suggest having your servants prepare this one for you. If you don’t have any, get one. What do you mean you can’t afford to hire a servant? Then get a monkey and train him. Oh, right, valid point. The whole feces throwing thing can ruin a good drink. Hmmm… I know! Do what I do and con your friends into making it for you; tell them it’s a game or something. If you don’t have friends then I guess you’re on your own. Here it is:

king tut

The King Tut-tini:

1 bottle of Shiraz

2 oz Gin

2 oz Peach Schnapps

2 oz Orange Juice

1 T. cloves

1 cinnamon stick

1 star anise

1 cardamom

1 T. coca nibs

2 oz honey

A garnish of Gold leaf (can scrounge this from Goldschlager)

Mix all the ingredients together and allow them to infuse for at least 24 hours in the fridge. Then strain into martini glasses and add the Gold leaf garnish.

The recipe serves 6, but if you didn’t con your friends into making it for you then I guess you can have it all to yourself. Good luck with that, though. You’d have to be a raving lunatic or an extreme soberphobic to drink all of that. Oh, wait. Yea, I guess I would do that.

Cheers! And enjoy!
