    Killer Workout (David A. Prior, 1987) DVD Review:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2017/...-1987-dvd.html

    aka "Aerobicide". Ankle socks, cheesy pop music, and a killer whose weapon of choice is an over-sized industrial strength clothes pin...

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Yep. Even weirder is that it's revealed to also be a ruddy keychain near the end of the movie!

    Creepozoids (David DeCoteau, 1987):
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2017/...-1987-dvd.html

    David DeCoteau's low budget creature feature has aspirations walking in the footsteps of Aliens (James Cameron, 1986), but let's be honest, those are far out of reach. However, influenced at the time by the last dregs of Cold War nuclear paranoia, Creepozoids with its bleak world view and gooey practical effects provides a charming dose of VHS era sci-fi horror. The year is 1998 and World War III has turned planet Earth into a nuked-out husk where nomads and survivors populate the wastelands as the fighting rages on...

    The Void
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2017/...ck-review.html

    Written and Directed by Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski, who have worked in various capacities on some of the Astron-6 projects (such as Manborg and Father's Day), The Void wears its metaphysical body horror influences on its sleeve...

    Dr Alien (David DeCoteau, 1989) DVD Review
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2017/...vd-review.html

    Following on from Creepozoids, Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-o-rama, and Nightmare Sisters, David DeCoteau rounded out the 1980s with this teen boy fantasy/comedy that was also known as 'I Was A Teenage Sex Mutant'. Zany from the get-go, it features deliberately on-the-nose humour, many-an-exposed-set-of-norks, substitute professors in lingerie, and an alien proboscis that sprouts from a college nerd's head to act as a powerful aphrodisiac!
    Emanuelle and The Last Cannibals (Joe D'Amato, 1977) DVD Review
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2017/...oe-damato.html

    Joe D'Amato – otherwise known as Aristide Massaccesi – the director of such grotesque delights as Anthropophagous (1980), is unlikely to go down in the annals of cinema history as a master filmmaker with a deeply considered artistic vision. His work may skew towards slap dash schlock, but he got the job done and knew to never play coy: if his audiences wanted devoured innards and boobies flopping about everywhere then that's exactly what he was going to give them – and this is undoubtedly the case with Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals...
    The Bogey Man (Ulli Lommel, 1980) DVD Review
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2017/...-1980-dvd.html

    Combining dark themes of childhood trauma with slasher movie tropes, The Bogey Man (or Boogey Man, if you prefer) – a former 'Video Nasty' in the UK – tries to do something original with the genre at a time when the formula was being set that others would blindly follow...
