I was thinking the other day about SyFy Channel movies. Not sure why necessarily, but they were on my mind. And all of this reminiscing made me think back to one of the first movies I saw on the channel, although not specifically made for it (like Sharknado per say). And that movie was: Mosquito!!!
Mosquito is not only up there with some of the best movies the Syfy Channel has ever put on (Ice Spiders, anyone?), but it also has the late great Gunnar Hansen fighting off these giant blood-thirsty mosquitos with…….wait for it…….a chainsaw!! Oh – I guess the surprise was minimized since I already gave it away in the title of the post. But anyway – if you’re not a believer of Mosquito yet and want to judge for yourself whether or not it sucks (haha), then watch the clip below and enjoy all of the glorious B-movie action. Hahaha – I said ‘sucks’.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were enjoying a delightful time at the zoo and a zombie virus erupted and started infecting all the animals that you were there to see? Good thing that the infamous ‘king of independent b-movies’ production company called The Asylum has wondered that very thing too! Feast your eyes on Zoombies!
First of all, the title Zoombies is going to be really tough to beat for the ‘Best Horror Movie Title‘ award this year. And that’s saying something since the year has just started. But yes, if your dream has always been to see zombie lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) chase down and eat people, then your dream is about to become reality. I would give you the synopsis for Zoombies, but I think you can already figure that out Sherlock. Apparently this beautiful specimen will be making an arrival in March in 3000 theaters across the country! Just kidding – this will be going straight to DVD or maybe even the dumpster. Get ready for a Zoombies trailer (which will be magnificent) coming soon!
It’s moments like this when I love the internet. For those of you who don’t know about the 1985 B-movie extravaganza called The Stuff, you really need to do some research. It has drama. It has intrigue. It has something that you eat that eats you from the inside out. And it has a character named Chocolate Chip Charlie. All of this somewhat pointless info is leading up to me telling you that someone over in the UK has recreated an actual tub of ‘The Stuff‘ and you can purchase one on Ebay!
Yes. Those are the actual replicas that you can purchase. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. Just think of how impressed your B-movie loving friends would be if they went to your fridge for a cold one and got an eyeful of The Stuff instead. Yes, the seller is located in the UK, but they do ship to the US and it’s honestly not a bad price in total to get your hands on one of these (about $30 total). Head on over to the Ebay page right HERE and feel free to click ‘Buy It Now‘. Just be warned. If the carton arrives and it has a delicious white treat inside, proceed cautiously because this may happen:
