John Dies At The End is a weird tale of a couple of drop outs, exposed to a weird drug that allows them to see into another dimension and leaves them as protectors of our world from a possible invasion for that said dimension.
A movie by Don Coscarelli, the man who brought us the masterpieces Bubba Ho-Tep and the Phantasm series (amongst other films) has created a stylish, surrealistic weird movie that kept me confused and riveted at the same time. A couple of dope smoking, drinking roommates, Dave and John attend a big party where they meet Robert Marley who introduces them to a new drug with the weirdest of properties: a lone with distorting time, it also allows you to see into other dimensions and the evil that lives there. The drug also blurs the line between life and death. In fact, there are several times when it is not obvious if the characters on screen are alive or something…else. Throw in a police officer who has also seen a glimpse into this world and is doing his best to removea any trace of it, by any means possible. The story itself is told as a flashback while Dave relates the story to a reporter, Arnie Blondestone (played by Paul Giamatti).
This is really a hard movie to describe because it’s really not like anything I’ve seen before. All I can really say is that if you have an open mind for weird (but good) movies, then you really should see this film.

2012’s Little Bit Zombie came out of nowhere and left me a little stunned: for a movie I never heard of, this thing is good!
Pretty typical idea: a group of young friends decide to go to a cabin for the weekend to relax and have fun before one of the couple’s marriage. Once there, one of the characters, Steve (the groom to be) gets stung repeatedly by an angry mosquito that is carrying the Zombie virus.
As the the night progresses, Steve starts acting a little more and more zombie like. Add a pair of paranormal investigators, one led by a magical zombie detector (or something) who are drawn to the cabin when they detect a “hybrid zombie” – That would be Steve, who unlike most zombies,slowly coasted to Zombiehood, opposed to the regular, “I’ve been bit and swarmed” style of Zombification leaving Steve in a half-human, half-zombie state.
This movie is pretty well made and quite funny – way more so than I expected. If you like comedy and Zombies, I say check this one out. I found it on Netflix (it was a suggested watch), and I think if you look it’s most likely available other placed also.

1972’s Legend of Boggy Creek is supposed to be a documentary. A shitty, shitty documentary about a Bigfoot like creature that had been claimed to have been seen in and around Fouke, Arkansas since the 1950s.
Starring people from the actual town that claimed to have seen and or heard the Boggy Creek monster.
Low budget, bad narrating and especially bad music married together and then slapped on a crappy script with crappy filmography and you have this movie.
Even if you believe in Bigfoot and Bigfoot like creatures, look elsewhere. I feel greasy and like the worst of the 1970s came spilling out of my monitor.
This feels like an episode of the old Leonard Nimoy series, In Search Of with all the talent and entertainment sucked right out of it.
Because I am so bored with this movie here is what Wikipedia says about this movie:
The film, which claims to be a true story, sets out to detail the existence of the “Fouke Monster”, a bigfoot-like creature that has reportedly been seen by residents of a small Arkansas community since the 1950s. It is described as having a foul odor, completely covered in reddish-brown hair and having 7 toes and also known by leaving tracks found in beanfields.
Several locals from the small town of Fouke, Arkansasrecall their stories, often appearing as themselves, claiming that the creature has killed several large hogs as well as other animals. In one scene, a kitten is shown as having been “scared to death” by the creature. The narrator informs us that while people have shot at the creature in the past, it has always managed to escape. In another scene, hunters attempt to pursue the creature with dogs, but the dogs refuse to give chase. A police constable states that while driving home one night, the creature suddenly ran across the road in front of him.
In a later sequence, culled from the actual newspaper accounts inspiring the film, the creature is shown menacing a family in a remote country house. After being fired upon, the creature attacks, sending one family member to the hospital
