2014 Exploitation/B-Movie Challenge - Days 2-3

The only viewing for day 2 was ILSA, THE WICKED WARDEN, which I gave a full review to HERE. It includes a review of the German (region free) Blu-ray as well. 7/10

Day 3 had a couple of viewings, the first of which was another film for which I'm reviewing the disc. HOLY GHOST PEOPLE, a horror film based around one of those creepy snake churches from the south. That was probably the coolest part about it because otherwise it plays out almost exactly as you'd expect it to. 4/10

And finally a movie I'd been wanting to see for a while and finally grabbed the $5 DVD from Amazon. From Cirio H. Santiago, the king of Filipino exploitation and presented by Roger Corman, RAIDERS OF THE SUN. This post-apocalyptic film takes place after the "last nuclear war" and is 90 minutes of cheesy ass kicking, shoot outs and general wasteland fun. It's a war to find the rumored supply of gunpowder that is hidden in the mountains because whoever has it will control the region. It's like the Italian post-apocalyptic films that I love so much, and is a giant rip off of The Road Warrior and to a lesser extent, The Warriors. While it is cheap, it's fun. 6.5/10
