Fantastic Peach Boy Action

Magic of Spell is one of the WPFS's favorite film. We've watched it a million times and without subtitles so we had no idea what was going on. But now, luck has us all because we have found a copy with subtitles. At last we can find out why that giant peach comes out of the well.

The future tells us that a Dog shall lead men to their Mates

We'd better get our acts together. We'd better start on those stem cells. The future doesn't look too good for dating and mating. In
" A Boy and his Dog" , we find out in the future that man's best friend will be his best resource for finding a mate. Set in the year 2024, canines have mutated some and have a telepathic connection with males. The rest of the world has gone underground and that is where all the females are. The above ground folk will have to just fight among themselves for sexual satisfaction and food. Based on a novella by Harlan Ellison. It stars Don Johnson and Jason Robards.

A look to the future through the eyes of the past

Radioactive Dreams is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi vision written if one were stuck in the 1980's that is part comedy and part musical. It centers around two characters who had been locked up in a bomb shelter for almost 15 years. With limited education, they climb out into a world gone wrong. A world gone wrong if we were still stuck in the 80's. Faced with Dizzy Dames and Disco Mutants, they go in search of their father, who had abandoned them for some strange reason. Somehow they get caught smack dab in the middle of who owns the key that will control Earth.

Swinging housewife gets her freak on in the Jungle

Mistress of the Apes is not a porno movie. Soft porn maybe, but's just a crazy and wild film. A woman searches for her husband in the jungle and through a series of event gets sidetracked by her bestial lust. There are plenty of awkward moments along with some strange musical interludes. This is a must-be-seen-to-be-believed item.

A Lost Piece of D.C. Cinenema

I love seeing old films that center around D.C. I also love finding films that have been forgotten. Top of the Heap is one of a kind film. It's not Blaxploitation so it hardly ever made it on the list of Black Films. The plot is simple. A cop is stressed out with his duties as a cop. He finds doom and misery on a daily basis so he creates his own world. A world where he could be and do anything. An astronaut for one. The astronaut sequences were filmed on the Mall and on the very spot of the now Air and Space Museum. Paula Kelly also stars and she is excellent. Of course the film will have some Washingtonians saying, " Hey, there are no palm trees or huge drainage ditches in D.C.!"

The Psycho B-Monsterama-A-Go-Go Spooky Freak Show

Oh boy! It's going to be a scary night. Spooky stuff. Weird wacky voodoo junk. Giant rubber chickens? Some one in the audience will die. Blood packs. Fun people. Cell phones ringing. People talking. Drinks splashing. Asses slapped. Children banned. Ghastly shadows.Spilled drinks. Grumbling tummies. Dr. Schlock. Monsters. Politicians even. Ghouls. Men. Women. Old people near death. People near death. Death. Funny Smells. Screams...and lots more.

Great Klaus Kinski film

Klaus Kinski plays a double role in this over-the-top German thriller. He plays an escapee from a mental institution who is trying to prove he is not a murderer, The Creature with the Blue Hand. One of the highlights in this film is a Bettie Page look-alike who is locked up because she has an urge to strip.

Affordable movies for the whole famn damily! The Drive-in's

Movies were always expensive when you had a tight budget. That's where the Drive-ins came in. You could load up the car with family and friends for one low price. The snacks were cheap. There was usually a park or playground in front for the early birds. The parents would bring the kids in their PJ's so's that when they returned home, the kids would already be dressed for bed. I've always had fond memories of being at the Drive-in. It was one of the few things that my family and I could do together. During nude scenes my father would  either cover my eyes or ask my sisters if I was asleep or not. I'd hear, "Is the boy asleep?" That was my cue to fake sleep with one eye open to enjoy a huge screen of nekkid female flesh. The last films I saw with my parents at the Drive-in were a John Wayne movie, 'Big Jake' and my favorite science fiction movie of all time, 'The Green Slime'. It was a night to remember.

WOW! Exploding blood packs!

Wrestling is pure entertainment. Men and women slamming and smashing things over each. Neck twists.Leg locks. Exploding blood packs. Last person standing wins.In 'I Like to Hurt People' you get all that and more. That bad boy The Sheik' likes to wrestle. Sometimes he goes overboard and some one gets hurt. Now he's about to get banned from the Wrestling world. This is his story. 'Andre the Giant' and 'Abdullah the Butcher' also star in this wrestling docu-comedy.

Can Cats Act?

Toto the Dog  was crucial to the plot of  The Wizard of Oz, but in the Turkish Wizard of Oz, he was just there. The feline in this movie is called Sampson and it plays an important part in Cat in the Cage, but unfortunately no one told the cat. In scenes where it is called for it to attack, the cute lil fuzzy wuzzy just purrs, so they slap on an audio tape of a crazed kitty, and toss the cat. Cat in the Cage is a cliched murder mystery. A son who has just been released from a mental institution believes that his new younger sexier stepmother (Sybil Danning) had something to do with his mothers death. The cat thinks so too.

Run! Scream! It's a Skunk Ape!

Hey hey hey Moondoggies! Get ready to Stomp! Shout! Scream! A great retro flick combining the Beach party  and Monster on the surf themes. Stomp! Shout! Scream!, is about an all-girl band that is stranded in a small Southern town while a Skunk Ape is on the loose. Yikes. While the sheriff  tries to capture the strange beast, the girls rock the town out. Making them forget about all their problems. It's a musical. It's a monster movie. It's a romance. What more could you ask for? Written and directed by Jay Edwards, the man who writes and directs The Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Adult Swim.

A band called The Clowns

Clowns are funny. Clown are scary. This band is called The Clowns.
Terror on Tour  is film of 70's decadence. The kind of decadence that killed disco. Bad, tacky costumes. Loose unprotected sex. Drugs galore. Wait a minute, that describes the 20th century. Oh well. Anyways....Terror on Tour is about a rock back that has a terrible following. No, not ugly groupies. Dead groupies. Some one is killing the friends of this clown band and it's not funny. With the help of sloppy cinematic police work and under-lit photography, the viewer is trapped in a world of a bad band on tour.

Did the Government kill off our beloved mucical icons?

What if the Government was responsible for the deaths of our legendary musical hippy icons? This film raises that question.

Ultra kooky British Musical

Hey all you Mods and Rockers. The fate of the world is in your hands. At least in this film that is. A wild mixture of British pop and rock with a Romeo and Juliet theme jammed in. That's what 'Gonks Go Beat' is all about.

All your bases belong to the Computer Overlords!

One of the best underrated Science-fiction films of all time.

Warlords of the 21st Century aka Battletruck

Some say that this film is a rip-off of Mad Max. Sorry, there were dozens of futuristic fuel mercenary films in the past. This isn't one of them. I feel that these films show a slightly altered look at our future if we don't conserve our natural resources. Who am I kidding? They'll always be alternative energy sources. A-hem, I've strayed from the path. In 'Warlords of the Twenty-First Century aka Battletruck'  we catch a glimpse of what may be. Crazy people fighting and searching for fuel. One maniac has the advantage over most of them. He drives a Battletruck and he uses it to smash and grab as much fuel that he can haul. Your measly little picket fence is no match for the Battletruck. Luckily, these folks have a hero in their neighborhood and he looks like one of the Bee-Gee's. He's got a nice pad. Keeps to himself, until they drag him in. Then things get tough. Don't mess with Andy Gibb.

Outer Space Jelly Monster

Dogora, is a one-of-a-kind science-fiction monster movie. If Earth were to be invaded from outer space then this monster would be it.
It self propels itself through space and it fuels itself up by consuming diamonds. While this space alien terrorizes and depletes the Earth of it prized resources, a gang of criminals plan a major diamond heist.
While the gang loots, the army has its hands full of the beast from outer space. All this soon turns out to be a very bad week for the jewels thieves. A very bad week.

Hot eyecandy!

It's hot outside. There is a problem with tonight's planned film. Please stand by as we unleash a fun-filled surprise event on you. Unannounced and very enjoyable.

Unhappy Endings.

(These lines sound better when yelled out.) The Manhandlers are Hot! A great combination of sex and violence that only mankind can dish out. Hellcats with guns. When you mess with these massaging ladies, you get rubbed out. Don't come asking these mama's for a happy ending 'cause they'll kick your butt. (Stop yelling.)
The Manhandlers  is sexploitation at its best. A young woman inherits her uncle's massage parlor. The sweet young thing figures out that there's funny business going on. After being threatened by the Mob, she doesn't get mad, she gets even. They're ain't no messing around with this ass-kicking hot mamas.

Lil Babies Shouldn't Bitchslap

Hey baby! Yeah, you little baby! WTF? Oh, I see. You got a little demon in you. Don't we all. Uh-hem! This gem of a film has multiple titles: The Devil Within Her/ Sharons Baby/ and I Don't Want to be Born. An ex-club dancer has a baby that doesn't seem quite right. While most babies piss and throw-up. This little tyke starts bitch-slapping anyone who gets near its crib.We're talking a newborn here folks..with a severe attitude problem. What could be causing it? Gas? Demonic possession? Well, it's not my child, but it does belong to Joan Collins and she has to deal with it. What is the mystery behind this strange baby? Watch and find out. You'll be very surprised.

It's Oliver Stone's first film

Who would have thunk it? Oliver Stone's first movie was a horror oddity. A horror mystery about a horror writer who suffers from nightmares. Nightmares that his characters have come to life and are killing and torturing his guest. It's an all-star cast. Jonathan Frid who played Barnabas Collins on The Dark Shadows  television series. Herve Villechaize who played the pint-sized side-kick in the television series Fantasy Island. Mary Woronoz , our lady of B-Movie goodness and Troy Donahue, who figured out that being in just about any B-movie is good.Tonight we have a great door-prize. It's a brand spanking new DVD of The Wolfman and it's the directors cut too. It's going to be a fun night, so come on down to Warehouse and join us.

It's Turkish daffy cinema time again.

The Lion Man
Something has to be said about our superheroes. There were a few that were born Godlike, and there were some who got a divine dose of radiation. Then there is The Lion Man. Born of royalty, but raised by lions. He has no true super powers, but he makes up for that with his homemade lion claw gloves. This Turkish film follows the story of a baby thrust out of his royal home and into the woods. Some very nice lions teach him survival skills. He fights and claws his way back. Mauling bad guys left and right with what looks like a hand-warmer with plastic metal claws.  Turn your logic off and watch some great scenes. Yes, it's another low budget Turkish spectacular.

If you don't scream, they won't get you. They're the Blind Dead.

Hey folks, it creepy spooky fun-time. Get ready to be super scared. Don't drink too much water 'cause you might just piss your pants. Boo! Ha, did I scare you. Good. Tonight, we watch 'The Return of the Blind Dead'. Sounds spooky, no. It's the sequel to 'Tombs of the Blind Dead' a great Spanish horror film from the 70's. Revenge is the motive for these dead folk. They were once Templar's who were doing some pretty nasty sick things. The townsfolk caught wind of it, captured them, and blinded them. Now they are back for BLOOD and REVENGE. With these stiffs being blind and all, you've got to be pretty stupid to get caught by them or you're in a horror movie. Shut-up and run is the way to survive. In the first movie, the dead kind of get away and it was open ended. Now we see that they are after some towns people who just won't keep quiet. Some folks never listen.

The most fun you're ever going to have with a movie-The American Astronaut

When was the last time you were entertained by a movie? When was the last time you had fun with a movie? Well, folks...this is that movie. 'The American Astronaut' is as fun and entertaining than anything you've ever seen. It's a comedy. It's a musical. It's Science Fiction with a touch of Western. It's a must-see film. A space cowboy is out on a groovy mission to deliver some rare items. One of  them is a real live girl in a box. The other is a boy who has actually seen a woman's breast. In this universe, the men grow up without the pleasures of a woman's company. The ladies are all on Venus and spend all their time pleasuring one lucky man. O lucky man, indeed. There's singing and dancing along with a crazy villain who can't keep his hands off his disintegrating ray-gun. 'The American Astronaut' is what your eyeballs and pink puffy brain needs.

Yes, you too can grow a Girlfriend in just a few weeks! Call now.

Way before our stem-cell research got underway. Mad scientists have been doing their thang. You know, working long hard hours, with no rewards. The crazy smart ones would say, "Hey! Why not put my mad doctor skilz to work. The babes at the bar ignore me. Some even mock me. I don't need any of them. I can create my own gal in a tube!" It never worked out. Sure the sex was good but after awhile the babe would do something odd. May be even kill a few people and that's not too cool. In Embryo, Rock Hudson plays a scientist who tries his hand at it. First with a litter of puppies and then with a female embryo. What could possibly go wrong!? What has science done!?

The Death Bed is an incredibly strange movie.

The Death Bed is the kind of movie that you can't describe. It's one part, Exploitation, one part Sexploitation, and one part absolute Fantasy-Horror. It's about a bed that comes to life after the tears of a demon saturate it. It looks like a mash-up of several themes  that all tie up to the monster bed. A ghost victim is cursed and is our narrator for this film venture. People come and go, but end up in the belly of the bed. A one of a kind film that has to be seen to be believed.

Johnny Socko and his Giant Robot is in the house

Hey you peons. Grab on to your seats 'cause tonight we're letting in the BIG GUYS! Yeah, baby, " It's Giant Monsters! Giant Robot Night!". We're talking Johnny Socko and his Giant Robot. The ultra-rare appearance of The Red Baron. Oh yeah. They'll be other surprises that will rock and smash you down, but enough about that. We're giving away tiny robots and a mute troll screaming baby head for tonight's door-prize give-away.

Don't open the window and don't drink the water or you'll become a ZOMBIE!

Ahhh! It's the BIG BAD RETURN OF THE WPFS after some brief interruptions. I saw tonight's film under this title when I was a teen, 'Don't Open the Window' which was the  more schlockier title than, 'Let Sleeping Corpses Lie'. This is not your everyday fast paced zombie flick. It's more realistic. It takes place in a small village where everybody is at peace. Even the local hippies who get blamed for some bizarre happenings. The dead are returning to life and they don't care about 4:20 or getting stoned. They want human flesh. It has something to do with some folks tampering with Mother Nature and you know what that means in a horror film. A bum trip.

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

No screening tonight

Hey Gang! The Passenger is closed today because of the Summit. So no screening tonight for the movie, EMBRYO. We will reschedule at a later date.

Good times bad times ...we've seen them all

We are still trying to save the Video Vault. Despite our own shortcomings. Go visit them and buy some films. You people have no idea on how bad things are. Once places like the VIDEO VAULT vanish then you have cable television, Amazon, and NETFLIX to satiate your mental fun zones. They are not real people....but enough about our bleak future. Here's Bad Ronald a boy child who kills accidentally and is coddled like Cartman  on South Park. He is hidden from the world in a hidden room inside his freaky little house. When Ronald's mom buys the farm, Ronald is left to fend for himself. OH JOY, the house is sold and with it brings a pubescent girl-thing to get Ronald all fired-up for some fun times. From inside his sick twisted mind and his hidden room he watches the unsuspecting family. What does he see? What does he do?

This one of our favorite films

When a diplomat's son is kidnapped. Las Vegas Showgirls are recruited to rescue him. Their training takes less than a week and in that week, they learn to fire guns and drive tanks. They also manage to sneak in and out of foreign countries. The big bonus is that they can still take group bubble baths with the entire squad. The extra bonus is the Scooby-Do ending.

What could it be? What is the reason for GREEN SLIME!?

Scientists, go figure. They try new things and sometimes it kills us. Like those underground explosions and those anti-matter black hole machines they've been experimenting on. All they create is death, destruction, and monsters. What does this have to do with The Green Slime, you may ask? The answer is everything. You see, I'm not a scientist, but I've played one at home with my Skill craft Chemistry set. In the film, The Green Slime you will see the same mistakes scientists make and it's all in outer space.
First there's this asteroid headed straight for Earth and the next thing you know we've got The Green Slime.

Dynamic Black Heat

Ah! The good old days. So bad and so tough, but it was entertaining.
 Back in the day if anyone mentioned Blaxploitation , they'd be looked at funny. You know why? The word didn't exist. It was just pure exploitation and black cinema. Can U dig it, man! Black Heat wasn't the original title for this film. That don't matter anyways. What matters is that
Black Heat is an action film about a kick-ass detective named Kicks Carter. Think Richard Roundtree as Shaft, but without the budget. He's after the bad guys and he's got a mystery to solve. Solid!

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Funny bottom of the barrel laughs.

Outtakes is what you would call "Bottom of the Barrel" , but it still provides hardy laughs when you least expect it too. I'm just kidding, Outtakes is sexy romp of movie spoofs. It's worth checking out.

The Video Vault is closing.

*Washington**, D.C.**’s Video Vault
Closing Doors For Good **After 25 Years*

I'm writing to share some sad news. After 25 years as a mainstay in Old Town
and among movie-lovers and wackos nationwide,* Video Vault* will
soon be* finis*,* kaput*, closed forever.
What happened? Well, the story of packaged media (movies, but also music and
maybe books) is simple: It's all about* digits*. Too many digital downloads,
too many digits on that rent check.  My wife Jane and I always believed in
the value of good advice and customer service. In tough times, low cost and
convenience trump all that.
We haven't had any time to really look back over the 25 years, but we did
scrape up some of our favorite news articles about the Vault. Sorry to say,
the* National Enquirer* piece isn't available online, neither are the
*or *Wall Street Journal*, but here's some stuff that helps tell our
story, a kind of virtual press kit:
   - Finding VHS in a DVD
2006 -
   - Movie 'Turkeys' Run Free at Specialty Video
1990 - Associated Press
   - Thrillers Are Treasure at Alexandria's
1987 -
   - Treasures in Relocated
Vault<>- 1993 -
Washington Post (preview)
   - Best Place to Rent Bad
2008 - Washington City Paper
   - Vault About to Burst <> - 2002 -
   The Astounding B Monster
   - Video Vault
Multimedia fansite about Video Vault
My wife Jane and I will be around the store until the end, telling our story
and selling off everything that will fit through the door, especially our
collection of 65,000 movie titles, ranging in quality from the great to the
good to the God-awful! Many titles in our inventory are impossible to find
elsewhere - we've prided ourselves on selection that no chain and no other
mom & pop store could beat.
Our* GOING OUT OF VIDNESS* sale starts today and runs until April 30. Come
see us, you never know what amusing title, anecdote, or graphic art might be
fodder for your reporting.
I'm in the store from 11-6 nearly every day. You can reach me at
703-549-8848. I'd love to hear from you, and tell a few stories, and yes,
get some more folks in the store at least one more time.

It's time to Kiss Kiss Kill Kill !

I was taught that outside of sex, hitting a female was verboten, but what if you were up against an all female army. Well,,,,what are you going to do? That's what Kommisor X is up against in this super slick super agent film Kiss Kiss Kill Kill. Double 07 wasn't the only super cool secret agent and Tony Kendall sets out to prove it in this first installment of his Kommisor X entry.

Exploitation Coming Attractions featuring Steve Buscemi

You can sit through a bunch of crap with your Netflix account or you can watch a compilation video where some actors watch them for you. That's what Film House Fever is all about. Sometimes the coming attractions are far more better than the actual movie so this will save you plenty of time.
Tonight's door prize will be a miniature Guitar Hero guitar that plays.

kung-fu from beyond the grave

You know how great a good dumps feels, but it stinks. Well Kung-fu from Beyond the Grave is like that and it's funny too. Hopping zombies and Count Dracula himself provide this film with some fine entertainment. An evil wizard is creating havoc by reviving the dead and the only way to put them down is to beat the bejesus out of them with some good old fashion kung-fu.

Disturbing yet quirkerly funny

A young woman meets a free spirited young man. They fall in love. She gets pregnant. She has a decision to make. To him, it is the wrong decision. He sets out to make her pay. An eye for an eye. A dead baby for a dead baby.

Hey you sexist pig, slap me again will ya!

This is the kind of film we used to watch on Saturday mornings at the movies in the 60's and 70's. Only this film was done in the 80's and is just as sexist. Full grown men fighting crime in spandex with headbands even. Can you smell the musk. We're talking about 'MegaForce' starring that man of manliness, Barry Bostwick. Yeah, I know we featured this film a few months back, but we at The WPFS feel the need to share it once again cause it's so gosh darn good.

The show must go on

I've been fired from my job of 27 years at the Library of Congress over bogus charges. I plan to appeal. My tooth is infected and I am out of insulin.....but the show must go on.
