A*P*E
1976, Kino Lorber, 87 min, South Korea/USA, Dir: Paul Leder

A freighter glides across the still waters of the Pacific; its cargo is a recently captured 36-foot-tall ape. Suddenly a giant fist bursts through the deck, sending the sailors sprawling - the A*P*E (Attacking Primate monster) is loose! After battling a very large snake and a giant white shark, A*P*E defies the JAWS of the great white and is the victor. An American actress (Joanna Kerns, TV’s “Growing Pains”) arrives in South Korea to appear in a film at the same time that A*P*E does and must survive as the beast destroys the city of Inchon and everything in his path. Paul Leder (I DISMEMBER MAMA) co-wrote and directed this cult classic that needs to be seen to be believed. Co-starring Hollywood veteran Alex Nicol.


HARD TICKET TO HAWAII
1987, AGFA, 96 min, USA, Dir: Andy Sidaris

Bullets! Bikinis! Bazookas! Radioactive pythons exploding out of toilets! No film captures the playful chaos of action cinema’s golden age like director Andy and producer Arlene Sidaris’ undisputed masterpiece. The Agency is a tough-as-nails, tech-savvy squad of physically ideal humans (led by Playboy icon Dona Speir and “The Bold and the Beautiful” soap legend Ronn Moss) who defend Hawaii’s Molokai Island from diamond smugglers, narcotics slingers and a skateboarding maniac armed with an inflatable sex doll. Tirelessly and shirtlessly, they deal out homicidal justice at every turn - unleashing helicopters, motorcycles and deadly Frisbees to ensure the safety of every bronzed boytoy and babe on the beach. This inexhaustible geyser of top-notch sex and violence exists beyond entertainment’s maximum limits - if you see only two movies in your lifetime, it should be because you watched this twice.
