Double-Feature Movie Social

Sorry for the late update – we’ve been busy. I'll let you guys know what we have cooking very soon; it's really exciting! Tomorrow, we're serving up a fresh batch of 4 movies. No matter which 2 you pick, you're in for a great time. Here are your movies for this Saturday:

Death Drug (1978)

A young man in Los Angeles dreams of striking it big as a singer in the music business. One day he gets signed to a big record contract, but along with the fame and money he develops an addiction to the drug PCP.

Rats: Night of Terror (1984)

One hundred years after a nuclear war has devastated the planet, society has been reborn into two factions; the underground society and the scavangers above in the wastelands. A group of scavangers on bikes come across a town infested with flesh eating rats, and soon the gore is spilling everywhere.

Stone Cold (1991)

Joe Huff is a tough, go-it-alone cop with a flair for infiltrating dangerous biker gangs. The FBI blackmail Joe into an undercover operation to convict some extremely violent bikers, who are angry at the capture of their leader.

Turkish Star Wars (1982)

Two space cadets crash-land on a desert planet, where an evil wizard seeks the ultimate power to take over the world. Although the movie borrows some background footage from Star Wars, the plot is mostly unrelated.

      Neil Breen in I Am Here? Yeah I can see the parallel. It would be more of Breen had tied boulders to his legs and devoted a major part of the movie budget to trampolines.

      Neil Breen had better be in next months' options.

    Death Drug was my fave ! The grocery store scene reminded me of my weekly trip to HELL (HEB).

    The actor who was his father was quite astute at playing rigor mortis.

    And the Grammy winning video ! Who could forget that ?! Produced by WNA (Weird Narcissists Association)


    I did dress my dogs up as the random groups of enemies in Turkish Star Wars and re-enacted the final battle scene sans the beheadings.

      It occurs to me that this would be a great winter choice. Also I vouch for this film wholeheartedly!

    I’m down for some Death Drug. What a trippy trailer. Looks like the rats from Night of Terror make a cameo.

    Also, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Vanilla Ice as Brian Bosworth in what appears to be Sidehackers 2 looks awesome.

    What a conundrum ! How can one choose only two of these great movies ?!

    I suggest "Nights of Rodanthe" for unadulterated, absolute schmalz.

      No troubled divorcee living in a lighthouse here (ala Lifetime), but I see there's at least a quaint romantic cottage on the seashore: https://www.youtube.co...­

      The only thing worse would be a Nicholas Sparks book club.
