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’.
Time to loosen up the belt buckle after eating 15 pounds of turkey and stuffing with heavy gravy and give thanks for a few things. And what am I thankful for? Well I’m glad you asked! Because here are my five things that I am thankful for this year. Continue reading →
One of the highest compliments that a third movie in a horror franchise can get is “Well, at least it was better than the second one.” Welcome to that compliment and welcome to Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, the third film in the Cabin Fever franchise and the second one that is going straight to DVD.

Oh – and let’s not forget about Night Of The Lepus too.
Both came out in 1972. One about man-eating frogs. The other about giant killer rabbits. My point? Don’t really have one other than the fact that ridiculous horror movies have been around way before Sharknado and Megapython vs. Gatoroid. Time to get off SyFy Channel’s nuts I guess is the point that I am trying to make. I love shark infused tornadoes as much as the next bad movie lover, but would it kill SyFy to make a movie that doesn’t require CGI that can be done on my Macbook? Don’t worry SyFy, I’ll still ride with you. I can only hope that Bronson Pinchot from Perfect Strangers is on your short list of has-been actors who can star in your next movie about a thunderstorm that rains down man-eating cats. Hopefully it would be called……..wait for it……..Thundercats.
