Hello fellow insomniacs! I was contacted this weekend by a fellow Insomniac, John J. Bossong III. And he was wondering where he can watch my movies each week?
And I was quite honored by that question. Here at the Insomniac, we try to recreate a fun, drive-in atmosphere. And I would love nothing more to have some kind of actual outlet for these movies some day. To do the actual Insomniac Drive-In, maybe even stream somewhere! But alas, right now we will continue the reviews and great trailers each week.
But, it did get me thinking! I am going to share the week’s movies on Mondays from now on, in hopes that those that would like to watch along are welcome!
So, here we go!
Tonight: A Creature Double Feature of Daimajin AKA Majin, Monster of Terror and Return of Daimajin AKA Return of Giant Majin
Friday: The first of the season! An old school Dusk till Dawn Movie Marathon!
It will feature: Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster, Return of Mechagodzilla, Dear God No!, Frankenstein Created Bikers, Count Yorga Vampire, Devil’s Hand (1961), Devil Times Five, Don’t Look In The Basement (1973), and City of The Dead AKA Horror Hotel
Then back around to Saturday night for another Creature Double Feature with Reptilicus and Yongary, Monster From The Deep
So, there is the list for this week! We hope to catch up with you on some reviews this week! And hope you find something on this list to enjoy as well!
And if anyone has some streaming knowledge and wants to point in the right direction, welcome aboard!
Greetings fellow insomniacs! It’s been too long since we had a chance to talk. The cobwebs have grown thick and we’ve spooled up two features this week. One is grindhouse classic and the other is a more polished modern thriller. Let’s see what the drive-in has to offer…
Our first feature is a Nazispoitation film from 1977. It’s called Women’s Camp 119 aka SS Extermination Love Camp. It was filmed in Italy and it has all the qualities that made the grindhouse movies profitable in their time. Lots of T & A, large doses of violence, and a low budget. Directed by Bruno Mattei, I felt like a needed a good hot shower afterwards. Basically, a fresh group of female slaves arrive at the Nazi camp and become unwilling specimens in ongoing experiments to revive frozen German soldiers. Most of the depraved things you think, make their way into this film. It was interesting to see a piece of Grindhouse history. Not my favorite kind of film, but parts of it kept me entertained. I do not recommend for the younger crowd.
The second feature is a good thriller named Domestic Disturbance. This one came out in 2001. A great cast of John Travolta, Vince Vaughn, and Teri Polo add to an enjoyable story. Matt O’leary plays the son of divorced Travolta and Polo. He gets into some trouble in school and lies sometimes. Vaughn plays the new husband with a dark past. I love when Vaughn plays these kinds of characters. Steve Buscemi makes an appearance trying to collect some money. He’s just a great character actor. Vaughn kills him and the son sees the whole thing but no one believes him. It’s a good premise, executed well. Travolta has been a staple of my movie viewing history and he comes off well and convincing, as a man fighting for his son. It’s a straight forward, popcorn thriller and I had fun revisiting it. I do recommend and safe for the pg-13 crowd.
It was nice touching base with you all. Hoping to do this on a more regular basis again! It’s been a long road to get back to this spot. And I was nervous wondering if the words would come back out. And I got some of them out. You may not all comment, but I appreciate that you stop by and see what’s playing. Say hi now and then. And the Insomniac will help keep you awake. Till next time, friends…
