    Haha, big fan I take it? :p
    If it were a better film I'd understand but Boneyard feels more like an average tv movie with surprisingly good effects. It's really got nothing going for it besides that imo.

    I wouldn't say big fan, but it was an unexpectedly interesting film when I thought I was sitting down to garbage. I like the lead being the least likely of leads. Love the kids, loved how it went of the rails a bit. There's so much copycatting that I appreciated how unique it was.

    These creatures were very effective and felt like they should/could have been in far more scary and well made horror film:

    These ones, not so much:

    The effects got a little too goofy for me, especially when they started off with some quite creepy and horrific looking ghouls that would fit right into an Asian horror.

    Thanks, Zombie Dude. The three top ones are super macabre, but the two bottom ones convinced med that I don't need to see or own this movie. Way too silly and lame.

    I've always thought the Boneyard was a horror-comedy, or at least horror-fantasy, that came out around the time films like it and Dead Alive were hitting the scene and followed suit of films before it like Return of the Living Dead by not being straight forward horror. If you've ever watched any of the trailers beforehand that'd be a given, especially considering it has Phyllis Diller as a character named Mrs. Poopinplatz. I guess people are just expecting a straight up horror film based solely on the artwork and synopsis, when instead it's a bit more campy. Sure, it's not high art in horror but it's still a fun flick when you're in the mood with some great practical effects.

    It definitely fails as a horror comedy if that's what it's trying to be (for me anyway). I didn't find it very funny at all, and the very visceral effects work of the earlier ghouls doesn't help sell it as any sort of comedy.

    The Boneyard is a film that somehow is less than the sum of its parts. It could have been a classic of that era in more capable hands, but at best I'd only give it a C-. It wasn't that good then when I first rented it with friends in high school, and it sure hasn't aged like fine wine or cheese.

    Just received Silent Scream and Terror Within II.

    Terror was a blind buy, but if it's in the same vein as Mindripper I'm sure I'll dig it.

    Still waiting on Twisted Nightmare, Julie Darling, and Schoolgirls In Chains.

    Did you ever see Terror Within I ? Part 2 would make a little more sense. Plus its a way better movie imho. Part 2 really only highlight is the continuation of "story" and the fact that Andrew Stevens decided to be in it. Shocking but Stevens had a pretty huge film run(on "video") in the late 80's to 90's. This reminds me of Beastmaster & Marc Singer. Excellent movie than they decided years later (capitalize on the Straight to Video craze)to do a part 2. Ok, movie but the cool factor was the fact that Marc Singer agreed to be in it.

    I'm surprised Terror Within part 1 wasn't released first. This is a want on Blu for me.

    Apparently, they will be carrying it after all.

    Thanks for the heads up on that, I was about to buy Twisted Nightmare just now. I'll wait and see what they charge for it in case I can save a few dollars.

    I haven't seen it, I didn't realize it was a continuation. I figured it was just some corny sci-fi creature feature with the title slapped on to move units. Maybe I'll grab Shout Factory's double feature DVD of Terror Within and Dead Space.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Silent Scream may be the most accomplished Code Red Blu yet. Forgot how much I enjoyed it.

    I don't know if you are a Roger Corman fan or not, but both of these films are Corman films. The first film is a "Corman" version of Alien. It's fun for what it's worth. Gore, a little sleaze, etc... The sequel was directed by Andrew Stevens himself. It's a less budget production than the first and it shows. Not that the first is a 30 million film in the first place. ;)

    Funny little trivia. Janusz Kaminski, who won an Oscar for his cinematography on Schindler's List was the cinematographer for Terror Within II just two years before. :eek:
