New article at the Vault - MONDO MOVIE NIGHT RETURNS!

Well I got the whole site updated tonight, plus I posted a new article entitled MONDO MOVIE NIGHT RETURNS! The "MMN" Post-Apocalyptic Bash was a blast and everyone that attended had a great time riffing on "Warrior of the Lost World." This film has to be one of the worst Italian "P-A" flicks of all time and I don't think any of us shed a tear when we discovered that the 35mm print of the film was missing some footage.

Well, I'm going to be making an effort to finally post that dangblasted "Legend of Dinosaurs..." review that I've been putting off for the last few months. Heck, if I feel good tomorrow and have a few spare hours, maybe I'll just polish that off and post it on the site.

Well that's it gang. I'm going to get some shuteye. Enjoy the article (as well as the latest capsule review I posted mere days ago) and keep on rockin' the b-world!

The Vault Master headbangs to "Rocktober Blood" + other new updates are forthcoming!

Though extraordinarily late I have posted a new capsule review at the Vault for ROCKTOBER BLOOD. (CLICK HERE to read my fellow b-movie webmasters' contributions to the "B-Movies That Rock" roundtable!) This 80's horror flick features the bare essentials of slasher cinema, namely boobs, blood, and rock n' roll! And had it not been for the latter, this film would just be another low budget slasher film that would all but be forgotten.

Also coming soon to the Vault is an article about my attendance of MONDO MOVIE NIGHT'S POST-APOCALYPTIC BASH, where me, my girlfriend Tara, and two of my best buds sat in a theater and heckled "Warrior of the Lost World." It was a very fun night and I can't tell you how good it is to know that Mondo Movie Night is not dead. There are a few more goodies that will be popping up at the Vault over the next few weeks, so stay tuned b-movie fans!

P.S. - Is anyone else shocked that John Carl Buechler is making a remake of "TROLL?" I read a story about this over at earlier this week and it shocked the bejesus out of me. I wonder if that means that Claudio Fragasso and Joe D'Amato are gonna team up to remake "Troll 2" in the near future.... hmm... isn't that one of the sign's of the apocalypse?

The Vault turns eight years old!

As of 12:00 AM EST, the B-Movie Film Vault turned EIGHT YEARS OLD! I started the site back in late May of 2000, on a free Geocities account. Originally called "J-Dawg's Sci-Fi and Horror Movie Review Website" the site soon grew, got a name change, and evolved at an incredible rate into what you see now. Though my review archives are considerably smaller than before, the site is looking a helluva lot better, and the number of visitors is growing slowly but surely each month.

Many thanks to my b-movie brethren, Andrew Borntreger ( and Shadow ( Andrew has nurtured my site, and has gone as far as adopting it as the "bastard child of Badmovies.Org," and Shadow is responsible for finding a permanent home for the Vault online. Thanks guys, and thanks to all of you who continue to visit the site! Here's to another glorious year online!

Watch "The Last Shark" for free on Google Video!

"The Last Shark" was a huge rip-off of Universal's "Jaws," and suffered the consequences of being "too derivative" by being legally banned from U.S. theaters, mere days after its theatrical release. The movie has yet to see a legit DVD release here in the States, so for those of you who are curious about this troubled film, you can watch it in its entirety at Google Video! Just click on the link below to enjoy the film!


And here's the original theatrical trailer:

Cinemageddon is a cult movie fan's heaven!

For those of you that scour various bittorrent sites on the web, here is a site that is a real treat:! There are THOUSANDS of awesome cult titles here (many of them rare, hard to find, and obscure!) to download, and I myself have already gotten quite a few "lost classics" that I've been wanting to see.

There are two very slight drawbacks to utilizing this site: 1) You must register to become a member. Not really a big deal, but some of you out there will be annoyed by this because you want to start downloading ASAP. 2) Make sure you seed just as much (or more than) you download. I'm currently on the "Defective" list because I've been doing far more downloading than uploading. I was warned that if I continue on my wayward path, I will be banned from the site. (A little harsh, dontcha think? Bastards......) I'm not too worried because I will gladly seed some torrents in order to retain my privilege to download a large variety of films that I cannot find elsewhere. (To date, I have downloaded "Killdozer," "Barracuda," "Rolling Thunder," "Thunder of the Gigantic Serpent," and some of "Chinese Hercules.")

So bittorrent junkies, be sure to visit Cinemageddon and get your cult movie fix! :-D Blog ya later!
