FREAKED
1993, 20th Century Fox, 80 min, USA, Dir: Alex Winter, Tom Stern

The only film to feature Alex Winter, Randy Quaid, Mr. T, Brooke Shields, William Sadler, Bobcat Goldthwait, Morgan Fairchild, Gibby Haynes, Keanu Reeves and the skeleton of Paul Lynde! Winter and Tom Stern helm this hilarious, politically incorrect, sci-fi cult classic about an evil company’s spokesperson visiting a toxic mutant farm created from the company’s own chemical, Zygrot 24. Incredible and disgusting makeup effects by Screaming Mad George and a completely over-the-top performance by Quaid.


VFW
2019, 92 min, Dir: Joe Begos

Joe Begos’ second film of 2019 is being described by the filmmaker as THE WILD BUNCH meets NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. In this star-studded bloodbath, Vietnam vets Steven Lang, Fred Williamson, William Sadler and Martin Kove have to defend their VFW post from a band of post-apocalyptic, drug-addicted mutants tracking a woman named Lizard, who stole their stash of “Hype” and is holed up in the bar with the aforementioned vets. The film exploits the confines of the bar to ratchet up the tension and fill the screen with buckets of blood - it's an absolute riot seeing our grizzled crew taking out the gang by ever-more violent means as the film zips along with Begos’ trademark insanity and punk-rock ethos.


BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY
1991, Park Circus/MGM, 93 min, USA, Dir: Peter Hewitt

As their saga continues, Bill & Ted have created a utopia through music - but it’s threatened when a malcontent (Joss Ackland) sends evil robotic versions of the two back through time to sabotage their pivotal performance at the San Dimas Battle of the Bands. Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves and George Carlin reprise their roles in this even more surreal sequel to EXCELLENT ADVENTURE.
