This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Waxwork/Waxwork II: Lost in Time (1988/1992)
i am doing a two in one because the dvd release has both and because we watched them back to back.
anyways, zach galligan of "gremlins" fame and some college buddies head to a waxwork where they become lost in historical waxworks. kind of. they get trapped in alternate realities. sort of.
either way it is pretty creepy and actually quite original. the sequel takes a bit of a different turn as zach and a new, much cuter, sarah must go back in time to prevent a crime from occurring. you know, like in "back to the future 2."
they also throw in some "evil dead" type humor which doesn't quite work even though bruce campbell shows up for a bit. there is a twist towards the end that kind of ruined it for me. still, a very entertaining horror film considering their resources.
props to the kikedyke.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
V/A - School House Rock! Rocks (1996)
Remember this from your childhood? Not really? Me neither!
But hey, retro is always cool, right?
Actually, this is a pretty fun little disc. And of course I own it because Ween and Pavement do tracks on it.
And, you can't forget Skee-Lo.
