DAILY CALL SHEET: NOVEMBER 11, 2018

Amityville The Awakening

Amityville: The Awakening (2017) I don't often delete a movie from my DVR thinking I'll probably never watch it again, but when I do, it's Amityville: The Awakening. TIL: If you have to awaken something, make it your conscience. Maybe leave Amityville alone for awhile, you think?

Love at Stake

Love at Stake (1987) The Salem Witch Trials musical-comedy you never knew you wanted. That's because you didn't; at least not this one. TIL: While the Church shamefully did its part, most "witches" were actually executed by civil courts based on the accusations of good neighbors.

Don't Panic

Last Shift

Last Shift (2014) Assault on Precinct 13 meets Helter Skelter with a dash of Argento's Demons thrown in for good measure. Nowhere near as good as those, but still darn creepy. TIL: Coincidentally, Heaven's chief demon fighter, St. Michael, is the patron saint of police officers.

Earth vs The Flying Saucers

Your daily dose of culture courtesy of Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956) - "UFOs: The reliable cases are uninteresting and the interesting cases are unreliable." - Carl Sagan

DNA

DNA (1997) Idiots clone dinos... um, an alien from fossilized DNA and create a preda... uh, vicious creature. Unoriginal, but fun. TIL: Along with heading the Human Genome Project, Francis S. Collins' also penned "The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief."

Blood Dolls

Your daily dose of culture courtesy of Blood Dolls (1999) - "Those who play with the devil's toys will be brought by degrees to wield his sword." - R. Buckminster Fuller

Headless Ghost

The Headless Ghost (1959) Trio of transcontinental teens try to help a trapped spirit locate its lost noggin so it can finally move on. Alleged horror-comedy actually has little of either. TIL: You really want to help the dead, try prayer. It works wonders for them and you.

Black Sabbath

DAILY CALL SHEET: NOVEMBER 6, 2018

High Anxiety

High Anxiety (1977) Brook's Hitchcock spoof is a definite step down from Young Frankenstein, but Harvey Korman in werewolf fangs is still good for some laughs. TIL: 49% of quantitative studies show religion helps with anxiety, while only 10% indicate it makes it worse for some.

Little American

Your daily dose of culture courtesy of The Little American (1917) - “Elections belong to the people... If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.” - Abraham Lincoln

Dr Goldfoot and The Girl Bombs

Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs (1966) Even Vincent Price can't save this tale of a mad doc who threatens the world with fembots that explode when you hug them. TIL: Well, all those nuns did warn you that boys and girls should leave room for the Holy Spirit when they're together.

Nightmare Before Christmas
