DAILY CALL SHEET: JULY 20, 2018

Monster of Piedras Blancas

The Monster of Piedras Blancas (1959) Poor man's Creature From the Black Lagoon demonstrates why you shouldn't feed strays, especially if they're head-ripping 6-foot tall fish-men. TIL: From a Catholic perspective, you should give a fish-man a fish AND teach him to fish.

Queen of Outer Space

Evil Town

Evil Town (1987) Cantankerous codgers capture teens in order to steal their life-extending pituitary fluid. Shelved for years before seeing release, and rightly so. TIL: For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven; including us.

Invisible Woman

Eyes Behind the Stars

Eyes Behind the Stars (1978) Dull as dirt cash-in on the late 70s UFO craze is definitely a candidate for the prize of Best Title for Worst Movie. TIL: Much to the surprise of many, the Church is actually fine with the idea of life on other planets. It’s all God’s creation.

Challenge of the Ninja

I Was a Teenage Frankenstein

I Was a Teenage Frankenstein (1957) The ultimate movie for every teen who ever whined, "Don't blame me, my parents made me this way!" TIL: The age of accountability is not a fixed point, but rather a state of being that varies by the child. Best just to try and be a good kid.

4-D Man

Firebird 2015 AD

Firebird 2015 AD (1981) In far off 2015, the government outlaws gasoline. Darren McGavin uses his pimped-out Pontiac to patriotically dissent. It's a Clinker. TIL: Authority is legitimate only when it seeks the common good. As such, unjust laws are not binding in conscience.

Walk Into Hell

Your daily dose of culture courtesy of Walk Into Hell (1956) - “Long exile from Christendom and civilization inevitably restores a man to that condition in which God placed him, i.e. what is called savagery.” - Herman Melville

Redeemer Son of Satan

The Redeemer: Son of Satan! (1978) Surreal slasher has six sinners getting offed by a cosplaying possessed priest. Decidedly non-PC horror couldn't be made today. TIL: If you're going to do the Seven Deadly Sins, you should probably at least get the number and the sins right.

It Follows

Your daily dose of culture courtesy of It Follows (2014) - "We ought not to look back, unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors and for the purpose of profiting by dear bought experience." - George Washington

Hell is Full

Hell Is Full (2010) Take Linklater's Slacker, add zombies, subtract budget and acting. Yep, it's another enjoyable Big Biting Pig micro-budget mish-mash. TIL: As a state of being, Hell can't really get full. Regardless, it's our responsibility to keep it as empty as possible.

Misadventures of Merlin Jones

Your daily dose of culture courtesy of The Misadventures of Merlin Jones (1964 ) - "Just cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town." - George Carlin
