"The Sega CD" --Angry Video Game Nerd

A Vampire blogger named Chet who writes about Vampires, Pop Culture Horror Films and whatever the heck he feels like!

Apparently continuing onward with my further level of early summer boredom and laziness, I gotta another classic for you...

Yeah, it IS another redux episode of the internet popular Angry Video Game Nerd that I'm pimpin' like he needs the pimpage...but hey, if something's good right, why not? ;)

In this one Mr. AVGN rips on the Sega CD...and boy howdy does it ever need it! LOL

Peruse, my Sunshiner children, peruse!



Hey, if nothing else, The Nerd's parody of the classic commercial for S-CD is just priceless! Love it!

Classic Strongbad: "Nightlife"

Things are sure pretty quiet around here in Chetslyvanina....uhhh....Texas...

>A Vampire Blogger named Chet who writes about monster movies, pop culture, his life as a Vampire, and whatever else crap he feels like!!

But really, what would you expect, seeing as how it's the beginning of bikinifest and all....err...I mean SUMMERTIME and all...

...So I thought instead I'd see how things are in another favorite enchanted kingdom...Strongbadia, or AKA the home of one of my other favorite animated people of all-time AKA Strongbad

Yeah, it's a "classic" emailage episode, but whatever Sunshiners, anytime is a good time for Senor Strongbad...and DUH what better time then to watch an episode where he hilariously discuses the "Nightlife" of his 'hood!

Of course, Nightlife DOUBLE-DUH, I'm a Vampire, so EXCCCCUSEEEMEMOI ME If I'm a little partial to...nightlife. ;)

Don't worry Daywalker folk, it's a good one!

 Even Vampires like Chet Of The Undead Love Strongbad!

Hammer Films' The Vampire Lovers (1970)

Hey, its "Hump Day" and you KNOW what THAT MEANS! How about a little....

 a cheeky vampire Texan blogger named Chet who writes about pop culture, monster/horror/B-movies and other crap in general

For this week's Edition I have...

The Vampire Lovers

Info:

Director-- Roy Ward Baker Writer--- Harry Fine (Screenplay) Sheridan La Fanu (Original Story)

Starring--- Ingrid Pitt Madeline Smith
Peter Cushing
Douglas Wilmer
Year: 1970

Company: Hammer International The Basic Scoop, The Poop, The Lowdown:

In late 18th Century-early 19th century Germany first a prominent General (Cushing) and then another aristocrat take in a mysterious young Countess' Daughter (Pitt) who draws herself closer and closer to their daughters, for not only sexual purposes, but as a source of blood!



What's Pretty Good:

This IS a Hammer film, so there are certain traits that come with that territory. (You just know sooner or later you're going to see Peter Cushing or Christopher Lee pop up somewhere, which isn't of course a bad thing. ) There's a certain look, mood, or "vibe" to every Hammer production. Some might call it classic or cliche' but that's only because that for many of these films it's more that 30 years out since they were made...I think of them as comforting and classy.

Virtually all Vampire flicks (of quality anyway :P ) such as Coppola's remake of Dracula and even Interview With The Vampire have copied something from the Hammer style...

It's because these old films were and ARE good quality flicks!! And this title is no exception. It's based on Camrilla after all, so there's actually a real story to follow here, which, for a classic horror "B-Movie" is engrossing enough.

Oh, and did I mention the Nudity dudes? ;)

 a cheeky vampire Texan blogger named Chet who writes about pop culture, monster/horror/B-movies and other crap in general

BARE in mind though (puny-pun-pun! :) ) that it IS all tastefully done, and actually rather shocking in the places it...uhh...POPS UP in this film, especially if you've never seen it before. It's still a real movie and not just an excuse to ogle hot chick's perky little boobies. Sprinkles of sexed-up appeal...nothing more.

The lead Vampiress villainess is just exotic and saucy. She holds the viewers attention even when her clothes are on.

The second daughter who Camirilla preys upon Emma (Smith) is also interesting enough to watch. I seem to feel like perhaps Tim Burton (a known Hammer film aficionado!) MAY have been inspired by the young lass in this film when he created Sally for his often under-appreciated classic The Nightmare Before Christmas

But that's just my theory! ;)

What Kinda Sorta Really, Really Sucks:

Not much, but again the Nudity factor, though by no means that bad from the standpoint of our modern tastes, is still there and makes this flick unsuitable to watch if you've got little annoying sugar-hyper rugrat monsters...err..I mean CHILDREN in your pad. The Scare and Gore factor is pretty much zero, so if you're mostly into Zombies and "splatterhouse" type stuff you might want to pass this one up.

 a cheeky vampire Texan blogger named Chet who writes about pop culture, monster/horror/B-movies and other crap in general

Oh yeah and it's got all the "classic" Vampire cliches in it (Garlic, Crosses, Coffins) which I can tell you from personal knowledge is all total bullshit! (Seriously, actual bullshit would be a FAR MORE effective deterrent to us Vampires than Garlic! ;) ) So some might find the use of these things as Yawn-worthy, depending on your personal tastes.

Overall Film Grade: B +


 a cheeky vampire Texan blogger named Chet who writes about pop culture, monster/horror/B-movies and other crap in general

Even though this is what my Nosferatu bud Remmy calls "Blatant Vampist Propaganda" (He despises Vampire films!) I didn't mind. I sort of have a warm and fuzzy soft spot in my heart for the "classic old monster movie" (and a hard and long one in my pants for this film in particular ;) lol )



Yeah, you've probably seen it all before. Coffins, Cushing, Fake fangs, Fog Machines and creepy castle miniatures on a hill...but sometimes that's a good thing. After you've seen non-stop splatter guts, goo, entrails, brains and zombies, sometimes going back to the type of movie where it began is a great and needed change of pace.

And if you're looking for rock-solid quality "horror throwbacks" Hammer's stable of stuff is one of the best places to start...and if you ALSO happen to have a penis, why not start with this one? :)
