Full Moon Features made some of our favorite movies in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, such as Trancers, Demonic Toys, and Puppet Master, during that wonderful time of freakishly awesome movies and giant videotape boxes.
Now they are putting those movies on the Internet, where fanatics can get to them without excavating the attic. Movies can be streamed for $4.99 a month. The movies can also be rented and bought digitally. The digital copies will be mine. All mine.
Some people call these kind of movies "bad." I call those people "dingleberries."
Each month the site adds four movies. The sweetness begins with a brand-new Full Moon movie, Ooga Booga, about a revenge-seeking doll, with Stacy Keach and The Exorcist's Karen Black.
The first batch also includes Return of the Zombies, Legend of the Wolf Woman, and the appropriately titled Trauma.
The site is at Grindhouseflix.com, and it's an app on iTunes and Google Play.
Ive been eyeing the Monster Hunter VHS for quite a bit. Never seen that cut of Anthropophagus 2 before, curious to see what kind of hack and slash the American editors didto it.
