Old School Unrelated Trilogy Night!

In the 80's, we didn't need to be part of a series or continuing story to throw a number after a title and the second two films in our made up trilogy prove that... with a VENGEANCE (and this time... it's personal.)

Our night of horror begins with a classic from the school
of Roger Corman: HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP (1980).



Science goes wild after an accident creates a race of half-man, half-fish (and completely sex-crazed) creatures that rise from the depths with only one thing on their mind... Only Doug McClure can save the nubile and scantily clad women of his fishing village from a date with the HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP!

Next up, we'll travel to the other end of the decade and try to survive the film that is currently battling THE ROOM and PLAN
9 FROM OUTER SPACE for the title of Worst Movie Ever Made...1990's TROLL 2,


A family vacation to a small town turns to terror when they discover it is overrun by hungry hungry goblins. That's right... GOBLINS. There are no trolls in this movie at all and it has nothing to do with 1986's TROLL. Director Claudio Fragrasso hastily wrote the screenplay with his wife, neither of whom could speak English very well, and the result is a truly one of a kind cinematic... experience.

To wrap up our trilogy, we will watch one of the most out-there genre mash-ups of the decade, NINJA III: THE DOMINATION (1984)


Lucinda Dickey (the star of BREAKIN' and BREAKIN' 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO) is our heroine telephone repair-woman/aerobics instructor who is possessed by the spirit of an evil ninja hellbent on wiping out the police officers that killed him. It's an over-the-top martial arts flick combined with gloriously cheesy scenes ripped off from THE EXORCIST and POLTERGEIST with healthy doses of synthesized music videoes of bouncy women with gigantic hair
wearing legwarmers and headbands. All that's missing is a group of precocious kids and this movie would have hit every popular genre of the 1980's!

I'll have munchies and drinks and you are more than welcome to bring something to share with everyone but please don't feel obligated. I'll post what I'll have closer to the event and if you are bringing something please post it so everyone can plan accordingly. Also, if you can not attend and have RSVP's, PLEASE change you
status asap so others can attend. See ya for a seriously gnarly night of coolness!

    That was really fun! Definitely my kind of day, and Ninja III was awesome! It was way better that I expected hahaha.

    A great bunch of people and some truly silly movies to make fun of. I had a blast! :)

    Wonderful. Great to finally catch up with the legendary creepy tastelessness of Humanoids of the Deep. Had no idea about Ninja III - the 80's and early 90's were a treasure trove of psychotic Z-grade cheese made by Hollywood wannabes on the wrong kinds of drugs.

    Really fun I enjoyed Humanoids more than I expected (ventriloquist sex scene!) and Ninja was a blast too...and what can I say about Troll 2 other than I need to wait a while for something to happen...and I'm craving some corn on the cob...thanks Jeff!

      You wouldn't be craving that corn with florescent green butter, would you? Think of the cholesterol! Think of the toxins!

    Do not give away the horrifying secret of Nilbog. Remember we just need time ... for things to happen.

    What food is needed?

    August 10, 2013

    • Jeff

      Right now I have hamburger sliders, french fries and sweet tea. We may also be getting baba ganoush or cheese popcorn. Maybe a dessert or a macaroni/potato salad or drinks?

    Hey, Jeff, I'm afraid it's possible I won't make it tomorrow, but it's also possible I will. I might get called up to crank out some deadline work, but I won't know until tomorrow. Not sure whether I should change my RSVP status. Because there's no waiting list, I figured I'd just leave it as-is, but I don't want someone missing out on a spot if I can't make it happen.

      Hey, Jeff. Alas, I won't be able to make it. Stupid work. :( Hope everyone has a fun time. I look forward to the next one.

      August 10, 2013

    • Jeff

      No worries. See ya at the next one.

    You mentioned snacks...I may try to bring baba ganoush if a certain place has it, or a couple of bags of cheese popcorn if they don't. S'alright?

    August 9, 2013

    • Jeff

      Sounds good!

    I was telling this guy about Ninja 3, and giving him the premise and he starts to look sheepish and finally says "I've actually seen that one...a few times...hey it was on cable A LOT".....lol

    Given the summertime, summertime, summ, summ, summertime time of this party, I'll do hamburger sliders and french fries for this one. :)

    I'm shooting for sometime in August for this meetup but am having a hard time nailing down a date. Does Saturday August 31st or Sunday Sept 1st work for anyone? I know it is Labor Day weekend and didn't know if everyone already had plans... I'll post a firm date later.

      Hi Jeff, I noticed you hadn't put a limit on this meetup so I closed it at 9 people today. If you need to remove some people and lower the limit you can do that as the host- let me know if you need any help.

      July 30, 2013

    • Jeff

      That's weird. I did have a limit on it of 8 people. I even saw the limit after the first few people signed up saying "2 spots remaining" etc. Thanks for putting the cap on it. :)

    Oooh, this looks like fun! Troll 2 and Humanoids from the Deep, I know. Ninja III, I don't know, but it looks awesome.

  • Laura

    Sounds fun! I have tickets to a show on the 10th, but if it ends up being another day in August, let me know. :)
