Day 2: Monster Dog (1984)

Monster Dog is not a good movie.  In fact, it's pretty damn terrible.  However, as a massive fan of shock rock pioneer Alice Cooper, this film is a hell of a lot of fun.  Originally released in Italy, the entire soundtrack was over dubbed so the voice of shock rock pioneer Vince Raven (Cooper) is not even present.  That's right, Alice didn't even overdub his own voice!  And the voiceovers are done horribly.  This is a glorious disaster of a movie that deals with a rock star returning to his hometown to film a music video at the same time that a pack of wild dogs starts tearing people to shreds.  Apparently, Vince's family had a history with werewolves and so the townsfolk believe that Vince is responsible for the madness.  Is he?'ll have to watch and see.  The entire visual effects budget is used in the final "confrontation."  It's good times.  Seriously.  This is definitely one of those "so bad it's good" movies.  Unless you're a fan of Alice Cooper.  In that case, it's simply amazing!  Oh yeah, it's also directed by Clyde Anderson (otherwise known as Claudio Fragasso).  Don't know who that is?  He also directed the cinematic masterpiece Troll 2.  Yep.  A classic.

What is the most ICONIC Godzilla To YOU?

I need the community's help on this one.  I'm trying to figure out which version of Godzilla is the definitive version.  As fans, we've all jumped on board during different eras.  To some, the '54 version may be the iconic image that immediately springs to mind when you hear the name Godzilla.  To others, it could be one from the 80's or 90's.  It could also be one of the American versions.  I'm trying to find out which variation is the definitive version that fans think of when thinking of Godzilla.  I hope this makes sense!  
To answer this question, I've created a poll featuring every Godzilla movie (as well as an add your own spot).  Simply pick the movie that contains your ideal mental image of Godzilla.  Don't just pick your favorite movie.  Pick which movie contains that version of Godzilla that's ideal to YOU!  I'll leave the poll up for a week and when all results are tallied, we'll hopefully have an idea of what pops into people…

Alice Cooper / Columbia, SC / 5-13-17

The last time Alice Cooper made a tour stop in Columbia, SC, Jimmy Carter was president, gas was .65 a gallon and Alice was a drunken mess.  Cooper's stop at the Carolina Coliseum on June 29, 1978 was part of his King of the Silver Screen tour promoting his then current album Lace and Whiskey.  Judging by the reaction of the packed crowd that assembled to see him Saturday night, it won't take 39 years to bring his show back to town.

King Kong (1933) Movie Review

With Kong: Skull Island's release this week, it's time to take a look back at the original film that started the long tradition of giant monsters.  1933's King Kong revolutionized the way that special effects were used in film.  Never before had the world seen a movie of this scale and magnitude.  Directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack with special effects by Willis O'Brian, King Kong is simply one of the most important films of all time.
