Strange Behaviour (REVIEW)

1982’s “Strange Behavior” is a strange little movie. It’s a mad scientist/revenge film, that was set in Middle America and shot in New Zealand. It features high level character actors but pairs them with kiwi first-timers that are incapable of anything approaching a yank accent. In places it is tonally similar to Gary Sherman’s “Dead and Buried” which was released the same year, but it wants to be more of an homage to 50’s era sci-fi/horror.

"B-Rated" Channels Horror Hosts of Yore

I recieved a link to this show last week, and in light of Tor's recent review of the documentary "American Scary", I thought it was the perfect time to bring it up. What you have here is a fan-produced series "B-Rated". Essentially you have a corny horror host, and then a psuedo-intellectual reviewer who takes apart truly awful movies and gives them more thought than they deserve. It's all pretty entertaining, and dare I say, shockingly well produced for something put together by fans.

Are You Ready for a Troll 2 Sequel?

Back when I interviewed Michael Paul Stephenson about his documentary "Best Worst Movie", he mentioned something in passing that at the time didn't really click with me. Here's what he said about director Claudio Fragasso, and his plans for a "Troll 2" sequel:

Best Worst Movie (REVIEW)

The story of "Best Worst Movie" starts in the summer of 1989, in a small Utah town where a little independent horror film was being shot that would eventually go on to be known as "Troll 2". Directed by Italian filmmaker Claudio Fragasso and written by his wife Rossella Drudi, "Troll 2" has gone on in many circles to be considered the "worst movie ever made". It was a legend that the film built during many late night showings on HBO in the mid 1990's, and one solidified in the internet age, when it was voted "worst movie ever made" by the users of IMDB.com.

Michael Simpson

Back in 1987, Michael A. Simpson directed both "Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers" and "Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland", sequels to the underground cult original, "Sleepaway Camp". This interview was conducted circa 2003, soon after Robert Hiltzik's controversial "Return to Sleepaway Camp" had been announced. At the time, there were issues (and still may be) as to who owned the rights to make sequels, and how fans of Michael's entries to the series were treated by the team behind the original (and the STILL UNRELEASED "Return").

I believe I can safely say that you join a long list of campers in your admiration of her natural endowments.

First, I've got to say that I'm honored you're sitting down to answer my questions. I saw "Unhappy Campers" for the first time a year or so ago, and since then, it's become one of my top five favorite movies.

Glad you like it. It's always great fun to talk with fellow campers. It's amazing how many fans there are of the "Sleepaway Camp" movies.
