The last double-feature of Season Two-o of The Last Drive-In started out with another trip into Clive Barker’s vision of Hell with those Cenobites (pinheaded and otherwise) tormenting some more folks in Hellbound: Hellraiser II.
Season Two-o finishes in Frogtown, where a wrestling icon’s whangdoodle holds the key to repopulation and a whole buncha mean amphibians want to shorten his life and something else.
An unheralded thriller from the 1990s, “No Contest” starred Shannon Tweed, who did kung fu for this one, comedian Andrew Dice Clay, who took folks hostage, and Robert Davi, who did the Robert Davi thing.
Joe Bob graced our screens in the usual spots and INSIDE the movies, including the unforgivable betrayal of a world premiere showing of “Hogzilla” and Darcy doing the Drive-In Totals.
Joe Bob’s feature-film de-butt actually got cut. The full story is in the long out-of-print “Joe Bob Goes Back to the Drive-In,” but he was still stinging from being chopped out of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2” when he reviewed it.
We had brutality in an office setting, a “beef” between Joe Bob and a director and Mayhem to boot. For attendees to The Last Drive-In, it’s just Week 7.
When metal supersedes flesh and the industrial consumes the organic, what next but global destruction? Tetsuo is so metal it turned Ernie into a metal fetishist.
This isn’t a pile of scrap metal motoring around intent on causing world destruction like in “Tetsuo: The Iron Man,” but Takashi Miike’s “Visitor Q” has its own take on body horror and it includes lactose, lots of lactose.
The Last Drive-In crew gets into the meat (or heart, or whatever bloody body part you choose) of the matter when it takes on “Cannibal Holocaust,” a 40-year-old Italian cannibal flick that maintains an important role in horror movie history.
Last week on the Last Drive-In, we all saw cannibals Italian-style. This week’s Retro Review takes the human munching into the realm of the beloved 1950s U.S. sitcom with “‘Parents.”
