Already 1/3 through the challenge... hopefully the next 20 days are filled with good movies a bit more consistently.
of the day was spent running around doing errands so I only had time
for a couple of movies later in the day, with GOTH KILL leading it off.
This low budget horror flick stars a bunch of New York City underground
fetish performers according to the DVD case and an appearance from the
queen of STDs herself Mistress Juliya from the Fuse TV channel. The
premise of the movie is some dude with shitty head tattoos is an old
Satanist who has transferred his soul to hundreds of bodies over the
years waiting for his chance to claim his own dark kingdom and souls to
reign over and ends up in the body of an innocent 19 year old girl who
has just been brought in to the goth scene by her new roommate and
he/she terrorize the local goth party scene in order to get his souls.
Somehow this wasn't quite as awful as I was expecting. I wouldn't say it
was good or that I came close to liking it but it was watchable and
there will be a fan base for this movie that live for this type of
then there was my first re-watch of the challenge, CLASS OF NUKE 'EM
HIGH. It has been years since I've seen it but I've always held it among
the best Troma productions and this was a reminder as to why. It is a
(nuclear) blast from start to finish. Tromaville High School is right
next door to a poorly managed nuclear power plant that is leaking all
sorts of radiation and toxic sludge which gets into the water supply and
begins messing with students. The Honor Society has turned from a bunch
of straight-A do-gooders to The Cretins, a nasty gang of punks who sell
drugs laced with the toxic waste. Eventually the waste mutates into a
monster that terrorizes The Cretins and the school. This is pure 80s
gold. Troma was spot on with this one, making an absolutely hilarious
high school horror type flick that has stood the test of time for
entertainment's sake. Having only seen bits and pieces of Part 2 and
none of Part 3 I'm really excited to dig into them soon.
Goth Kill - 4/10
Class Of Nuke 'Em High - 8/10
