 It's exactly what you think it is:


And it's exactly what you want it to be (61 minutes!!!):

Criminally Insane is also available on a Retro Shock-O-Rama Cinema triple feature dvd showcases famed softcore director Nick Philips' other horror ventures, Satan's Black Wedding & Crazy Fat Ethel 2 (aka Criminally Insane 2, made in 1987!).

The Outing

Quite possibly the ultimate EVIL GENIE movie (let's forget Wishmaster, Wishmaster 2, Wishmaster 3, and Wishmaster 4.... at least until I post a complete evil genie filmography) ! '80s teens in peril (pastel wardrobe & all), poor choices & parties, plus "magical" optical effects combine for a good time (aka running length = < 90 minutes).

The highlight is the genie design (that's him on the back) which looks as if it was so cumbersome they must have resorted to pushing him around in a shopping cart to get any movement. The gruesome results are definitely no picnic here.

The only real disappointment is a surprising lack of nudity...

The Zero Boys - A Nico Mastorakis Film

Posted by phil blankenship, March 25, 2007 12:38am | Post a Comment
It's starting to feel like a Mastorakis weekend:

    

 

Following yesterday's report on The Wind, I'm back with another Mastorakis hit (and one of my personal favorites), THE ZERO BOYS !

What starts off as a simple military reject / paintball caper, the mood quickly downgrades to a slick & sadistic Deliverance flavored slasher... complete with a SNUFF FILM TORTURE BARN.

Most importantly, however, is that it stars Kelli Maroney (Chopping Mall, Night of the Comet)!!

The Wind - There's Something Deadly In the Air

Since it is a bit hard to see clearly on the scans, I've blown up the two most important parts of the box (you're welcome!).

 

Film Tagline:

Closing line on the back:

The fact that the D in Wind is made from the killer's hand scythe certainly makes this one stand out, too.

About the quality of the film, I don't yet have much to say. I've been too obsessed with staring at the box to actually watch the flick. I do know, however, that it HAS to be a killer:

1. Wings (VICE SQUAD!) Hauser plays the mysterious caretaker Phil!
2. This was shot immediately before Meg Foster played Evil-Lyn in the Masters of the Universe live-action motion picture.
3. It was directed by Nico Mastorakis, ALWAYS a sign of '80s quality (be sure to check out Zero Boys if you haven't already).
4. It was released on Lightning Video !
