FREAKS (1932)

Monday, 04 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     This film is widely regarded as one of the most controversial movies of all time, and I could see why even today some people would be taken aback by its premise.  The story revolves around the “freaks” made popular by P.T. Barnum in the early 1900s and is told mainly from their perspective.  A trapeze artist discovers that one of the midgets is in fact very wealthy and decides to marry him for it; all the while having an affair with the strong man.  After accidentally spilling the proverbial beans on her affair, the family of freaks shuns her but Hans stays with her.  She rewards him by poisoning him on their wedding night and for some time after, but the “freaks” get their revenge in the end.

 

 

TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL (2010)

Thursday, 28 February 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     Tucker and Dale are two life-long friends who put their money together to buy a vacation home in the mountains.  The rest of the cast are your normal array of college kids looking to have a good drugged out and drunk time in the woods.  The combination of the redneck humor and naivety, combined with the jaded college “rednecks are evil” vibe, go together well and create great comedy all the way to the wood chipper.

 

CLASS OF NUKE 'EM HIGH (1986)

Sunday, 24 February 2013 20:23

The Buzz: 

     A leak of radioactive waste from the nearby nuclear power plant in Tromaville, New Jersey leads to mutants and murder in the local high school. After smoking pot contaminated by nuclear waste Chrissy and Warren begin having odd side effects which culminates in the upchucking of a mutant baby and a confrontation with the school's honors-students-turned-punk-gang called The Cretins. When The Cretins threaten to harm Chrissy and their mutant baby has grown up to a full sized death machine the only option is for Warren to blow up the school with science!

 

BRAINDEAD (1992)

Saturday, 23 February 2013 14:47

The Buzz:

     Known to American audiences as Dead Alive (hence the poster) this is the third film that Peter Jackson made during his years in New Zealand.  This was long before he struck money with Lord of The Rings and shows his roots as a filmmaker.  This is by far one of the most fun horror films available on the market and I have forced many people to give this film a chance.  The story is a basic one, guy loves mother, rat monkey bites mother, mother becomes giant zombie, boy kills everyone!  It's a hoot!

 

 

 

DEATH BED: THE BED THAT EATS (1977)

Saturday, 16 February 2013 18:33

 

 

The Buzz:

     Looking for shelter some friends stumble upon an abandoned ruin of a building with a single room containing a single four-post bed.. Deciding to stay for the evening, strange things begin occurring and people go missing. Through flashbacks we learn that the ruins and the bed within have a long and complicated history... OF EEEVVVILLL! And love. 

VAMPEGEDDON (2010)

Tuesday, 12 February 2013 01:02

The Buzz:

A small band of goth kids from the local community college head out into the desert and perform eldritch rituals as a harmless hobby, until one of them buys a book of sorcery from a strange garage sale and resurrects not only a small army of vampires buried in the desert, but also the spirit of the monster-hunter who put them there. Fight scenes, nudity, and other hijinks ensue in this direct-to-DVD independent cheapie.

SLUGS (1988)

Tuesday, 12 February 2013 00:31


The Buzz:

Based on the Shaun Hutson novel from 1982 (that's right, somebody wrote a book about this idea), Slugs is a classic horror movie in the “extreme close-ups of perfectly normal animals to make them look like terrifying monsters” sub-genre. In this case, swarms of flesh-eating garden slugs, mutated by irresponsible toxic waste dumping (hey, it was the '80s), are crawling up from the sewers to eat people whole like slimy, incredibly slow-moving, easy-to-kill piranha.

Seriously, guys, I swear it's scary.

CORNERED (2009)

Friday, 08 February 2013 02:37

The Buzz:

     A group of people all gather for a night of poker above a convenience store. But unbeknownst to them, a serial killer known for killing convenience store work staff is downstairs, and he begins to pick them off one-by-one.

SECTOR 7 (2011)

Friday, 14 December 2012 17:31

The Buzz:

     On a deep sea oil rig, the crew is desperately searching for oil in a region where there's apparently none to be found. But that soon becomes the least of their problems, when they become isolated by a severe storm, and a monster looses itself upon the rig and the unfortunate crew.

100 TEARS (2007)

Monday, 10 December 2012 16:51

The Buzz:

     A fat clown kills people. A LOT of people...

About Us

Tanked Matinee is the place to go for good drinking movies. What do we mean by that? Simply speaking, we evaluate and recommend entertainment media based on how much fun it is to watch with friends on the sofa and a cold beer in hand.

Everyone knows "The Godfather" is a great movie, but is it as great to drink with as "Roadhouse?" We can appreciate "Citizen Kane" as a masterpiece of cinema, but is it as good a centerpiece for your party as "Santa Clause Conquers the Martians?"

Tanked Matinee appreciates film as art, but when you're kicking back on Friday night with a tall Rum & Coke, you're not looking for art, man, you want to be entertained. We're here to recommend the best movies for your night in, whether it's a big party, small get-together, or just a quiet night alone with a bottle of wine or three.
