So do ya like B-movies? You know I like B-Movies, and I know Deathcult likes'em too. Wanna see a crapload of vintage classic (and some not-so-classic) B's for nothin'? Go here:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It's a Youtube-style site with a ton of flicks (mostly horror and sci-fi, though there are some Kung-Fu flicks and other odds and ends too) all streaming for free. I've watched "Evilspeak" w/Clint Howard and "Death Ship" w/George Kennedy on this site over the past couple of nights. You have to sit thru a 15 or 20 second commercial every half hour or so but I can live with that. I'm sure the legality of this site is gray-area at best so I'm gonna enjoy it while it lasts... have fun y'all.

I prefer B movies, but only if they are from the 50's, 60's and 70's. After that era they seem to lose their charm. Italian B movies are definitely my favorite sub-genre. Always a bevy of beauties in those flicks.

I tend to prefer '70s and '80s "B's" but I'm not overly picky. If it looks good (or at least the "bad" kind of good) and/or entertaining I'll check it out no matter what era it's from.

Have you checked out some of the offerings on this site? They got trash cinema from every decade ... quite a few Italian goodies too, including the infamous "Alien 2: On Earth" and my personal favorite, "Star Crash."

I have the lion's share of those movies already. But it's cool that they offer them so readily

I love 40s B movies as well (back when B Movies actually had a real meaning). Lots of classic B film noirs, seedy detective thrillers and early suspense/horror stuff like Cat People, I Walked With A Zombie, The Leopard Man, The Body Snatcher, Bedlam, etc.

So I watched the notorious "Pieces" (1983) on this site tonight. Whoooo boy, what a gloriously inept piece of sleazy low budget crap. Girls on a college campus get naked, then get dismembered by a lunatic with a chainsaw. Yup, that's pretty much the whole plot. Christopher George appears as one of the most inept cops in film history, trying to solve the murders. He looks and acts like he just walked in out of a late 1970s cop TV show, right down to the trench coat and ever present cigarette. As I understand it, he died shortly after this film was released, possibly from shame.

Best tag line ever: "You don't have to go to Texas for a chainsaw massacre." Fuckin' Ay!

So I watched another oldy-but-baddy on this site tonight: "ALIEN 2: ON EARTH," an Italian-made, no budget "Alien" cash in that ranks as the most nonsensical thing I've seen in many a moon.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

At the beginning of the film, a NASA space capsule returns to Earth thanks to a bunch of handy dandy stock footage. Unfortunately it seems that it a bunch of nasty alien spores were riding shotgun on its re-entry, which end up scattered around Earth. One of these ends up in the backpack of a psychic cave explorer (don't ask) as she goes on an underground expedition with a group of her friends. When it hatches and starts eating people's faces, all hell understandably breaks loose.

I can't even begin to describe how ridiculous this movie is. The dialogue and dubbing are hilariously awful, the plot -- well, there doesn't seem to be a plot -- and the ending is a cop out. The gore was a hoot though, and the lead actress (who apparently also appeared in "Krull" a few years later) gets her impressive tits out in one scene, which provides one of the film's few highlights.

Supposedly, 20th Century Fox attempted to sue the producers of this flick for stealing the "Alien" brand name but the filmmakers were able to convince a European court that their film was not intended as a sequel to the Ridley Scott "Alien," but to a science fiction novel from the 1930s with the same title. Okay, yeah, suuuuure it was.

Anyone who was dumb enough to go to the drive-in to see this in 1980, expecting it to be a legit sequel to "Alien," deserved what they got. Sheesh.

Watched another oldie but baddy on B-Movies.com tonight....

"Invasion of the Bee Girls" (1973)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This uber-trashy sexploitation sci-fi flick has a title straight out of the '50s, but its swingin', sexual-revolutionary storyline could only have been made in the early 70s.

A government agent is sent to investigate the mysterious deaths of numerous male scientists at a research lab... and discovers that a radiation experiment gone horribly wrong has turned the local females into super-horny, human/bee mutations that kill whenever they mate. Lots of T&A and plenty of random WTF-ness ensues.

Seriously, this movie made no sense but lotsa purty girls get nekkid so hoo-boy, was it fun to watch.

Fun facts: This was the debut film for screenwriter Nicholas Meyer, who went on to direct two "Star Trek" films.

The female lead, 1968 Playboy Playmate of the Year Victoria Vetri, is currently doin' time in prison after shooting her husband in 2010.
