My Favorite Full Moon Flix

  • Dec 23, 2010
The title of this list is somewhat misleading since not all of these films were actually released under the Full Moon banner. They WERE all released by companies owned and operated by Charles Band the man behind Full Moon. Those companies include Charles Band Productions, Empire Pictures, and Wizard Video. I had planned on listing them according to which  company released them, but decided to go by order of preference.
1
Re-Animator
Director Stuart Gordon and actor Jeffrey Combs do H.p Lovecraft proud in this updating that turns HPL's eerie serialized stories into a laugh filled splatter-fest.
2
Movie poster
I'm one of the few people who likes this flick as much as RE-ANIMATOR. It's a real gem, again from the team of Gordon and Combs.
3
The Pit and the Pendulum
Lance Henriksen stars as Grand Inquistor Torquemada and is at his absolute best.
4
Troll (1986)
I love this flick mainly because it stars Michael Moriarty and features such memorable lines as, "I don't care--I'm doing what that tree said!"
5
Subspecies
The first two entries in Full Moon's NOSFERATU falvored vampire series were quite good, but after awhile they wore out their welcome.
7
Dolls
Very early Stuart Gordon fable in which toys come to life and wreak havok.
8
Oblivion
A science fiction western set in the future with all the trappings of the past AND aliens too.
9
The Day Time Ended
A triple Supernova opens up a rift in the space-time continuum and nifty stop-motion animation effects occur in the Sonoran desert
10
Lurking Fear
A not-that-bad up dating of another Lovecraft story featuring Jeffery combs from Stuart Gordon. While it's nowhere near the caliber of RE-ANIMATOR or FROM BEYOND, it still has its moments.
11
Movie poster
Gordon and Combs again, this time in a castle in Italy.
12
Vampire Journals
Romantic vampires were still cutting edge when they rolled this flick out.
13
Netherworld
A man inherits a delapidated mansion in the Louisanna bayou and starts noticing strange goings on at the brothel near by.
14
Meridian
Beauty and the Beast with lots of sex and nudity.
15
Ghoulies
Man inherits house from relative who was a famed Satanist, man conjures up titular characters, man plans to sacrifice his friends to Satan, man spawns numerous sequels.

What did you think of this list?

Cool. I'm familiar with "Subspecies", "The Vampire Journals", "Troll", and "Dolls", but I've still yet to see "Re-Animator" amazingly.
December 31, 2010
You MUST see RE-ANIMATOR!
December 31, 2010
So I'm told.
January 05, 2011
Now.
January 05, 2011
Don't rush me. We've only got one rental store around and I'm not sure they'd even have it.
January 05, 2011
If they don't have it then they are pathetic indeed. I've never seen a video store (that wasn't a Christian video store) that didn't stock this one.
January 05, 2011
You've clearly never been to our town and seen its shitty movie selection.
January 05, 2011
That's true! You have stunned me with the hickness of your town. Did you say that you were going to see MY NAME IS KHAN?
January 05, 2011
I did see it. It was good, but too long and quite cliche.
January 05, 2011
The songs were really nice. It was very disappointing that they weren't subtitled. I can see why SRK would want to make that movie. Like his character he's a Muslim married to a Hindu which hasn't been easy even for him. He made an off-hand remark about how he wished a certain Pakistani soccer player could play on the Indian team and riots broke out--some theaters even stopped showing MAY NAME IS KHAN because they were afraid of trouble. And then when he was in the US just before filming that movie he was pulled out of line at the New Jersey airport and detained for 3 hours by Homeland Security and took the Indian Embassy to get him released--racial profiling. But it's still a pretty average movie and not good for a first Bollywood experience at all. I have half a mind to send you a Care package with some loaner flix!
January 05, 2011
LOL! It wasn't my first Bollywood movie, just my first Shah Rukh Khan film. I've seen three or four Bollywood movies now. The best I've seen is "Lagaan".
January 05, 2011
Okay. What are the others? And if you say BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM and SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE I'm going to have to get upset with you.
January 05, 2011
"My Name Is Khan", "Lagaan", "Bride and Prejudice", "Slumdog Millionaire", and a couple others I can't remember. I'd also point out that most of them are the Westernized Bollywood films with mainly English dialogue.
January 05, 2011
I hated BRIDE AND PREJUDICE--warmed over Jane Austin. SLUMDOG was okay, but directed by Danny Boyle? There's also MISSISSIPPI MASALA with Denzel Washington. Oh, they're all okay I suppose, I just like my ethnic films to be more ethnic. LAGAAN was good. It was the first one I saw, back before I'd heard the term Bollywood. If I sent you a couple of movies would you watch 'em and send 'em back? I could send you RE-ANIMATOR and maybe an SRK flick--either ASOKA or OM SHANTI OM.
January 05, 2011
Yeah, I think I saw "Mississippi Masala" too. I also saw "The Namesake", but I'm not sure if that really counts. By the way, did you ever find a copy of "Night of the Living Dead" that wasn't all souped up? You mentioned you wanted one that hadn't been restored, remastered, or colored.
January 05, 2011
I wouldn't count THE NAMESAKE even though t was about the indian experience. I like Kal Penn. Too bad he joined the Obama administration and they had to kill off his character on "House". Oh yeah. I've got a couple of different copies including the old beaten up original release.
January 05, 2011
Okay, I just wanted to check and see if I should send you my copy or not.
January 05, 2011
Thanks. I'm cool on it.
January 05, 2011
LOL! Then we're both cool.
January 05, 2011
Too cool for school.
January 05, 2011
I think for me, that was actually almost true. LOL!
January 07, 2011
You never said yes or no on the loaner movies.
January 07, 2011
Sure, I'd love them if you want to send them, but are reviews for them mandatory?
January 07, 2011
NEVER.
January 07, 2011
Cool.
January 08, 2011
I guess i''d better hit the mail then,
January 08, 2011
I'll e-mail you my address tomorrow then.
January 10, 2011
Cool.

EXCELLENT LIST, I love all of these as well, I was even thinking of reviewing all the Puppet Master, Ghoulies, and Subspecies films [including Vampire Journals of course]. And all though not Charles Band I may even throw in the Critters films as well.
December 30, 2010
Have at it! I'm surprised that none of these films has been done yet.
 
December 23, 2010
wow! Vampire Journals and Oblivion made the list! I am so featuring this one!
December 23, 2010
Did you like 'em? I was disappointed in OBLIVION 2. It had a great piece of cover art though.
December 23, 2010
Yes I did. Oblivion 2 I think I have on VHS. Not sure....
December 23, 2010
I had 'em both on VHS but sold 'em off before I moved up here. Got a good price for all my tapes too. It was just before the value really fell out of tapes.

I am the poster child for inertia. Where ever I am is where I plan to stay FOREVER.   So much so in fact that it took me decades to understand the punchline about why   the chicken … more
