I may have found the holy grail

If you read my complete profile, you will see that I like "Cheezy B-movies with hilarious titles".

"Sgt. Kabukiman, NYPD", "Hell Comes to Frogtown", "Killer Clowns from Outer Space", "Chopper Chicks in Zombietown", "Cemetery Man" , "Blood and Donuts", ... you get the picture.

There is similar genre that also appeals to me. Chinese/Japanese fantasy movies. "The Heroic Trio", "Green Snake", "Ultraman", "Zeiram", that sort of thing.

I won't go into the rather convoluted series of links that brought me to this movie, but upon reading the review, my first thought was, "I must see it".

Seriously, if I was into that sort of thing, I would sacrifice a goat to Netflix in order to get this movie. Since I'm not, I just went to their website and did a search. They do have it, and it is now at the top of my queue.

On a side note, I have actually seen/read about 2/3 of the other items reviewed. And now that I am aware of the rest, I will be seeing them.

Later,

I've actually seen ONE of the ones you listed. Blood and Donuts. Rather odd take on the vampire tale. ^/^

You are the only other person I've ever heard from who has seen that one.

Eh, it had a vampire in it. That's about the only reason I saw it. Well, that and the title was too bizarre to pass up.

John said...
Yeah, bizarre or silly titles are the point to getting these movies.

sweet.

Weren't you the one who berated Phil for picking out Iron Monkey back at PennState? (For the record, that was way before the theater release.)

No-shadow kick!

John said...
No, Iron Monkey was fine. It was Road Lawyers that Dan and I both berated Philip for. Although there was one funny sketch in it.
