Rated: To Be Announced Format: DVD Nightmare at Noon [DVD], Late Night Speciality That Will Win You Over

Riley rileythis film is a piece of comical genius. Bo hopkins and wings hauser make the ideal comedy duo. It really is imple however fantastic entertaining for all the loved ones. A person on fireplace even runs into a van and explodes it.

I was a significant wings hauser enthusiast in the 80s. I thought he was likely to be a star. On the energy of this title it is incredible that he was not one of the major b film stars of that period. This is an above the prime traditional. Actually it is stupid, crass and about the leading but it does it so very well. You will cry with laughter and glee. Awful experts place some thing in the h2o. Then the poor inhabitants of a compact town in the us drink the drinking water. Which can make drinking water drinkers flip into zombies.

I chanced on this extensive neglected gem after examining out director nico mastorakis’ previously flick ‘the zero boys’, courtesy of those high-quality folks at arrow who set out a really nifty restoration on blu-ray. Unfortunately, this 1988 generation is a dvd only evaluation from a reduced budget line who crank ’em out speedy and low-cost. Which in an ironic twist of fate really a great deal displays the film. Sheriff hanks (the normally amazing george kennedy) is regulation and buy in the sleepy backwater desert town of canyonland and small business just isn’t specifically booming. Perfectly, that is right until albino lunatic brion james (‘the horror show’, ‘bladerunner’) arrives to initiate a diabolical james bond-lite experiment: pollute their water supply in buy for absolutely everyone to turn into bloodthirsty zombies and kill every single other. Hey, its in all probability much more charge efficient than wanting to acquire about the world or develop a new race of superhumans in outer place. Having said that, i digress: with the locals having a trip to loony tune city and spouting eco-friendly goo, its up to hanks and his freshly acquired staff to help save the working day: amusingly troublesome massive city pair ken (the reliably bonkers wings hauser) and cheri griffiths (kimberly beck from ‘friday the thirteenth: the remaining chapter’), laconic ex-cop turned generic western hero clone reilly (bo hopkins) and the sheriff’s individual daughter julia (kimberly ross). Now, this haphazard team need to band collectively in buy to endure, conserve the city and be certain james’ evil scheme is thwarted – with any luck ,, all in time for tea. The movie, although plainly strapped for cash is an proficiently manufactured auto for mr mastorakis’ off the wall abilities. Owing to the amazing desert locale, the limited funds are not that apparent and luckily for a throwaway direct to online video piece – it capabilities a excellent solid who bring their a-match.

“Late Night Speciality That Will Win You Over, 80s picture house) and he watches all these supposedly crap films from the 80s, Fantastic bad movie”

My husband does a podcast (the 80s photo household) and he watches all these supposedly crap movies from the 80s. I have to say, that all these variety of films search like they’re going to be awful, but in actuality they’re all strong gold. I have never ever laughed so much in my complete daily life as i have at these films. Faves getting shotgun, samurai cop and malibu categorical.

Excellent small spending budget motion picture but the ending is way above the leading.

Nightmare at noon certaintly is a surprise. Its the type of film that you may well catch on a late evening on a distant channel though channel flicking- and very well just be glued to it. What sets this clear minimal funds thriller/horror/western -yep you read through that ideal, apart from so several others is the simple fact that its essentially ninety mins of pure amusement. Its chock a block complete of explosions and fires and additional explosions and fires and boy did they seek the services of some good stuntmen. It also stars these kinds of adaptable people as george kennedy, a extremely underated character actor, whose humour normally seems to shine via. Then theres the everlasting wings hauser- whose name calls for respect. The late fantastic brion james plays the terrible person. Its a style swapping movie- that is tricky not to like. Great comedic moments way too- watch out for kennedy saying that he has not drank drinking water for years- its the way he tells em’. Properly well worth the selling price which is at the moment as very low as 1p.

    1. I chanced upon this long forgotten gem after checking out director nico mastorakis’ earlier flick ‘the zero boys’, courtesy of those fine folks at arrow who put out a pretty nifty restoration on blu-ray. Sadly, this 1988 production is a dvd only review from a low budget line who crank ’em out fast and cheap. Which in an ironic twist of fate pretty much reflects the movie. Sheriff hanks (the always amazing george kennedy) is law and order in the sleepy backwater desert town of canyonland and business isn’t particularly booming. Well, that is until albino lunatic brion james (‘the horror show’, ‘bladerunner’) arrives to initiate a diabolical james bond-lite experiment: pollute their water supply in order for everyone to turn into bloodthirsty zombies and kill each other. Hey, its probably more cost effective than wanting to take over the world or create a new race of superhumans in outer space. However, i digress: with the locals taking a trip to loony tune town and spouting green goo, its up to hanks and his newly acquired team to save the day: amusingly annoying big city couple ken (the reliably bonkers wings hauser) and cheri griffiths (kimberly beck from ‘friday the 13th: the final chapter’), laconic ex-cop turned generic western hero clone reilly (bo hopkins) and the sheriff’s own daughter julia (kimberly ross). Now, this haphazard group must band together in order to survive, save the town and ensure james’ evil scheme is thwarted – hopefully, all in time for tea. The movie, although clearly strapped for cash is an efficiently produced vehicle for mr mastorakis’ off the wall talents. Due to the amazing desert location, the limited finances aren’t that evident and thankfully for a throwaway direct to video piece – it features a great cast who bring their a-game.

    I was a big wings hauser fan in the 80s. I thought he was going to be a star. On the strength of this title it is amazing that he was not one of the biggest b movie stars of that era. This is an over the top classic. Really it is stupid, crass and over the top but it does it so well. You will cry with laughter and glee. Nasty scientists put something in the water. Then the poor inhabitants of a small town in the us drink the water. Which makes water drinkers turn into zombies.
