The Burning (1981)

Screen shot 2011-06-09 at 1.06.34 AM

It all starts out 5 years earlier, when a group of campers attempt to play the usual “prank gone wrong” on their mean groundskeeper. To make a long story short, they set him on fire, and horribly disfigure him (hence “The Burning”). After that, he spends the next 5 years recovering and freaking out the hospital staff with his horrible grotesque scars and burns. In fact, some of the staff even dare each other to go in and look at him.

Here’s an oldie but a goodie! Once upon a time Edgar Allan Poe wrote a short story, then Roger Corman came a long to direct a movie out of it with Vincent Price starring in it. Need I say more? We all know that Corman has a reputation for cranking out B movies. And for […]

NSS was in charge and responsible for all the advertising and promotion of all the films in Hollywood. Big and small, NSS would cut trailers, radio spots, lobby cards, 1 sheets, half sheets, inserts heralds, you name it.

The Prowler (1981)

Screen shot 2011-03-22 at 5.06.30 AM

However, I do have a few unanswered questions?
1. Is The Prowler intended to be funny? If so, it’s not all that funny.
2. Was this movie intended to be serious? If that’s the case, then it’s actually kind of funny.

Japans Hardship’s: Eerily Predicted In Hollywood Films

SportsphotoLtdAllstar_quake460

Second there was, Tidal Wave aka Japan is Sinking (1974)… Produced by the legendary master of B movies Roger Corman, Tidal Wave starred once again, the late Lorne Greene. It also featured an appearance by director Joe Dante in a mostly Japanese cast. I think I saw this on TV when I was a kid after an episode of Quincey M.E. There isn’t very much available for this film and it’s hard to find even a trailer for it. Tidal Wave tells the story of a massive earthquake that hits japan and the impending tsunami headed straight for Japan in the aftermath.

Landis, gave praise to American Graffiti, calling it, “A beautiful piece of art.” Perhaps, having dismissed it to casually previously. He further pointed out, that the “where are they now” tags in American Graffiti, had Dreyfuss’ character living in Canada as a writer. It was a subtle touch on Lucas’ part.
