Pardon the double whammy of Vaults posts. I’ve been really bad with archiving my old posts lately. No matter! Please enjoy a look back at a cheesy horror-comedy classic! (And yes, this is before I got rid of the weird spelling.)
“Very young, getting kicks
Cruisin’ around 56
Drinking beer, driving fast
This party is their last
They’ll dance on the graves
The lost souls, Satan’s slaves
They don’t know the acid rain
Is coming down to make them insane
Do you wanna party, it’s party time
We got to party, it’s party time” – 45 Grave, ‘Party Time’ (Zombie Version)
Necrotik Reviews returns with a trashy b-classic!
With “Metal Hurlant Chronicles” airing on SyFy now, I figure my next Vault entry would be a look back at Heavy Metal the movie.
Take a ride!
I love this movie, but I hate this movie. This movie will never do justice to the magazine which inspired it. Now, many think Heavy Metal is just schlock, bullshit, and porn. Well, in many cases they’re right. However, there is some pretty good story material to be remembered from the magazine. Several independent artists and writers have published to Heavy Metal. A famous example is of course, Moebius.
Now, the movie itself is another story. This film is semi-infamous for rushed production. If this film took more time to develop, it would have most certainly been much better. This picture advocated cartoon storytelling for adults. But, the rushed writing and attempt to slap stories that may or may not have appeared in the magazine may make some ask otherwise.
