    B-MOVIE BINGO: I COME IN PEACE

    I COME IN PEACE (1990)
    Showing Tuesday 12/1/2015 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Time for a Christmas movie! I COME IN PEACE stars Dolph Lundgren (SHARK LAKE, KINDERGARTEN COP 2) as Detective Jack Caine, a cop who refuses to go by the book, and scary-looking actor Matthias Hues (CYBER ZONE, EXECUTIVE TARGET), who portrays a drug dealing alien named Talec. Talec comes to Earth to extract endorphins from human brains, in order to make a fake movie drug to sell in space. Kind of like Lundgren, he is not fluent in English, and has a weapon that’s like a razor-sharp pizza cutter boomerang.

    Caught in the middle are the White Boys, a gang of yuppie white collar drug dealers that Caine is trying to destroy. When Talec the Drug-Dealing Alien shows up and disrupts one of their drug deals, he leaves one his pizza-cutter weapons behind, and the Feds are brought in to investigate this strange piece of alien technology. Caine, who has a personal vendetta against the White Boys, is teamed up with uptight FBI agent Larry Smith (Brian Benben, “Dream On”). Needless to say, they don’t get along at all.

    When an alien cop (who can speak English) shows up to try and capture Talec, Detective Caine and Agent Smith put aside their differences (and overcome a fundamental disbelief regarding the existence of alien worlds) to take him down. If they can’t, more like Talec will come and turn Earth into a huge drug lab!

    Directed by Craig R. Baxley (ACTION JACKSON, STONE COLD).

    B-MOVIE BINGO: NIGHTBEAST

    NightbeastNIGHTBEAST (1982)
    Showing Tuesday 11/01/2011 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Somewhere in the heavens, an out-of-control spaceship careens toward Earth, plunking an asteroid on the way down. It ricochets toward Maryland and crash lands somewhere in the woods. A wet-looking abomination in a shiny silver suit emerges, fully-automatic laser gun in hand. A handful of hicks with guns confront the being and are immediately vaporized. This scene sets up Nightbeast, in which a backwoods cop and his friends fight an alien that terrorizes their small town. Super lo-fi, but in a star-filtered early 80s kind of way. Awesome synth music, a romantic love scene, and tons of lasers and gore. Also vaporizing and mauling. And gore. Directed by Don Dohler.

    Trivia: The musical score on this movie was done by 16-year-old J.J. Abrams, who later went on to create the TV show LOST and direct the excellent film SUPER 8.
