For b-horror flicks!!
Spirit Camp is the attempt to cross breed Friday the 13th and Bring it On according to the cover. It was an attempt for sure but sadly falls a little short but still a fun flick for those who enjoy campy movies that you would see at Texas Frightmare Weekend then you’ll enjoy it. If you order from the main site you can get a free pair of autographed panties which I got with my copy.
This is a classic camp horror movie of girls at a cheerleader camp and there is a killer. That about sums it up if you are a fan of those movies. So it will have girls in small outfits, boobies and blood. Spirit Camp was made by Kerry Beyer from Houston and I support local film makers of the area since I’d love to be an extra in a b-movie some day
Spirit Camp starts with some boobs and blood right from the start and the babes make their appearance in the first 10 minutes. From there it is the hardcore instructor who makes life hell for the girls. The goth girl shows up because I think that she is forced there by the man? She has a hard time getting along with the popular cheerleader but together with their power of cheer and boobs they are able to escape the killer of the camp.
I’m sure there is a drinking game in this but I was hoping for some more gore and a little more campy dialog that I think would have pushed it over the top. Spirit Camp stars Roxy Vandiver and Julin. I got to meet some of the cast at Frightmare Weekend this past year and they were nice folks so I support those who allow me to have something to write about.
Pick up Spirit Camp as I give it 3 out of 5 tuxedo footballs but if you come up with a drinking game for this one let me know!!
It’s dark, deep and men look to conquer it…..The Cave….but seriously.
The Cave is much like all the movies of this style (The Descent) in which people go down a hole and turns out there is bad shit down there. I’m still waiting for the feel good movie of the year about people go into a cave and find good things. Last time we had that was Goonies.
I wish I could say that this movie falls into the normal b-horror flicks but honestly it doesn’t as this does have a fair amount of production value to it and has a fair amount of mid-level star power. The Cave could be considered the Ocean’s Eleven of b-level actors with names like: Cole Hauser from 2 Fast 2 Furious, Morris Chestnut from V (the television series), Lena Headey from Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, Piper Perabo from Coyote Ugly and Daniel Dae Kim from LOST…..wow the pure firepower………….alright
So yeah the movie is about a secret in the cave that everyone wants. The best crack team of cave hunters (not sure what you’d call them) is called to do the work that no one wants to attempt to do….except for the people who put the secret there to begin with. So yeah I wish I could riff on this more but really the one thing that saved this for the gang that was watching it was the reference of “The Cave” to “Lady Parts”. Yeah it’s immature but seriously folks if you are still following this blog…..come on.
If you want to play the game then go to about the 17:00 mark and make references to “The Cave” = “Mommy Hole”…..so give it a try remember your score cards:
Head Cave Hunter: Now we will be under for 12 days…
Head Cave Hunter: (with beer in hand) …We are going to go deep on this one
Second in command Cave Hunter: Now remember folks this Cave is a serious piece of work, it’s already taken one life. Respect it
I think you guys get the idea of what kind of drinking game you can have here. As for the movie it goes on and it is what it is. The get trapped and it’s hard to get out and then some kind of creature is down there and if you get bit or infected by it you start to turn into one thus The Cave whips you into something that can never leave because once in the cave you are not the same. But seriously the movie has a guy turn into a cave thing and that helps them win the boss fight at the end.
So again make this a fun drinking game but not sure if you’d want this in the line up for a movie night unless your group is a tight gang that can riff really well with each other or you will just be watching one of those Saturday afternoon movies on the local WB network. The Cave gets a 2 out of 5 tuxedo footballs but can get an extra football if you can riff with the best
Hello there gang…..
So posts have been so far in between as I feared they would be at we are reaching close to a year of YATMA. I knew that work would get in the way of doing this but since this is really a hobby I guess you could say it was expected. I hope that anyone who had been following along has found some useful info. This next year I will be getting married and shipping another video game this year which will be on the Xbox Kinect and living life but that doesn’t mean I will watch any fewer B-movies
just means I will get behind on my blogs
But let’s play some catch up!!
So this has been in the vault for a little while and was not sure when we would watch it. It almost seemed too good to be true!! Zombies + Strippers = Golden Showers…..err wait. It took a little convincing but get the group in on this but there was some fun to be had. Now fun depends on how much drinks are too be had for the night. This was not exactly the movie I was hoping for sadly.
It appears that this was one of the “we can cash in on big names here” type of b-movie and sometimes you have to be careful about those because for those of us who really enjoy the art of the b-flick we are not fooled by those who play with our emotions!! Now with that being said there are some good fun moments here because the effects and dialog are cheap and help sell the set that appears to be lit by two lights. I guess if you are big into Porno or the world of Jenna Jameson you will really enjoy this but since I’m not a fan of Jenna, she is just another actress to me in this flick. Robert Englund is in classic cheese and does make the movie fun but he is not one of the main stars and not in the movie all that much.
It is the tale of classic science gone wrong as our government tries to make zombies, all goes wrong and of course the disease spreads to the near by gentleman’s club. (yes the one near the government science facility) Not sure exactly how zombies work in this movie but these zombies start to turn into zombies but are able to still do their job as strippers first then bring men into their trap which is to eat them…..yeah don’t ask don’t tell type of situation folks. There were some funny moments with the Mexican janitor and some of the strippers including a use of a ping pong ball….yeah…. Overall it wasn’t the a great bad movie because at times they tried too hard when they should have just let them do what they do best in porns…..ad lib great dialog and sucking.
I think if your movie night is mostly guys. I’m not saying this because stripping is demeaning to women, it’s because they focus on Jenna Jameson and her boobs which if that is what you are looking for then just go to the internet which has her around every corner. If you are going to have a good amount of adult beverages then you can use Zombie Strippers and a warm up for a main event movie but I could not consider it a main event flick.
