TV/Movie Stuff

Frankenstein Island (1981) (Rifftrax) ★

This is bottom-shelf, bargain basement junk, almost as hilariously bad as “Manos: The Hands of Fate” or “Planet of Dinosaurs” but missing the charm of those other crapsterpieces, instead playing itself out to an audience too bored to be apathetic.

Abraxas: Guardian of the Universe (1990) (Rifftrax) ★

Low-rent all the way, this Jesse Ventura action/sci-fi vehicle plays like a cheap rip-off of “The Terminator” by way of “I Come in Peace” but without the effectiveness or charm of either, bereft of any un-ironic entertainment value.

The Swamp of the Ravens (1974) (Rifftrax) ★

Mind-boggingly peculiar and thoroughly pointless, this Ecuadorian horror cheapie is incomprehensible from beginning to end, an endless series of barely related scenes edited together with the finesse of a chainsaw.
