The Day the Clown Cried Radio Show

Posted by evilcupcakes on 2005.12.02 at 15:35
Any obscure movie buff worth their salt has heard of the never-completed cinematic travesty "The Day the Clown Cried". If you haven't, the basic plot of this Jerry Lewis vehicle was that he portrayed a clown that is forced to lead children to the gas chambers of a WWII German concentration camp.

A clown. In a concentration camp. Played by Jerry Lewis.

Yeah, someone thought that would be a good film. Ouch.

NOW at last, someone made a radio play from the script!!! And here it is!

Yeah, it's Real Audio (barf) and its some guy doing a horrible Jerry Lewis impersonation, but it's only 58 minutes long.

And here is an article about the movie - which is worth checking out just for the terrifying illustration

Death Bed: The Bed That Eats

Posted by evilcupcakes on 2005.09.18 at 21:36
Death Bed: The Bed That Eats

What I learned from this movie:

Little old ladies like to read magazines about "Oral Lesbians"
100 years ago, they buried you in glitter eyeshadow
If your hands are melted off by acid, the bones remain fully articulated until your sibling snaps them off for you
You can light a roaring fire with just 2 birch logs and 1 match on the first strike
Maniacs like to break into abandoned buildings and CLEAN them

So this movie is.... weird. It's a horror movie.... wait, no it's really more an art film.... well actually I thin kit might be a parody... no it's just sort of...

Ok, I will level with you. I have no idea what I just saw. It's a movie. About a bed. That eats. It eats flowers, apples, suitcases, drinks wine. It eats playing cards, cigars, hell it even ate a bucket of chicken (no, I am not kidding, could I make this shit up?). Oh and it also eats people. LOUDLY and with some of the worst fake crunching and swallowing noises ever and gallons of yellowish digestive fluids (I guess they paid a lot for the effect and planned on getting their money's worth). Basically, that's all there is to the plot. The narrator is some gothy looking dead guy trapped behind a painting in the same room with the bed, and then several people wander in only to end up the main course in this weird, weird film. Lots of naked chicks, minimal gore (the usual low budget red paint), some oddly timed slapstick, numerous scenes that made me laugh out loud (the line "This place is awfully clean for being abandoned. I hope there isn't some maniac around!" made me howl) this movie was worth renting (and is mercifully short at 80 minutes). Hell I might have to own it!

Here is a more detailed review. I just can't commit that kind of time to this movie!

More Icons

Posted by evilcupcakes on 2005.09.14 at 16:37
Current Music: PJ Harvey - Horses In My Dreams
Ok, I just added more icons. This time around it was "Phantom of the Paradise", "Eraserhead", and that filmic travesty known as "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" starring Peter Frampton and the BeeGees. Knock yourselves out!

Also, if anyone has any suggestions for cult films they want icons for let me know!

(I won't do Rocky Horror or Pink Flamingos etc because there are already TONS of icons for those rolling around out there. I am focusing on the more obscure movies- except Eraserhead because there aren't too many icons out there for that).

K, so in a fit of boredom, I made a the first of several LJ sized icons for some of the worst movies out there. This first batch is from "The Apple", "Showgirls", "Flash Gordon", and my personal favorite, "Xanadu". Feel free to take them, customize them, whatever, just don't hotlink them!

Psychotronic Reading

Posted by evilcupcakes on 2005.09.11 at 09:13
I haven't been posting much because I was out of town on business, but in my travels (to beautiful downtown Portland OR) I went to Powell's World of Books (only the largest bookstore in the world! they also have an online store to rival Amazon that includes new, used, and rare and supports wishlists.) and found 2 absolute psychotronic treasures:

Inside Teradome: An Illustrated History of Freak Film by Jack Hunter
Amazon | Powell's

Midnight Movies by Hoberman and Rosenbaum
Amazon | Powell's

I also have some film reviews to post, but I still have to to unpack!

I have just watched "Kibakichi", and I am SPEECHLESS. This Japanese masterpiece is one of the most absurd and confusing films I have ever seen. About all I know is that in medieval Japan there are these rubber monster people, yakuza, and the japanese James Earl Jones has a "dream" that involves the two, but we never quite find out what that dream is. He sure talks abut it a lot. It has rubber turtle people, baffling dialog, THE WORST special effects and some of the silliest action ever committed to film. I STILL have no idea what the actual plot was, not to mention several sub plots that are never resolved. The final action sequence of the hero running around in a furry dog suit dodging hand grenades (remember, this is medieval Japan) is the funniest thing I have seen.
