Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old Sarah is given thirteen hours to solve a labyrinth and rescue her baby brother Toby when her wish for him to be taken away is granted by the Goblin King Jareth.

Reason to Watch

Labyrinth is the final theatrical film directed by Jim Henson who prolifically used puppetry in many of his works which included Sesame Street, Muppets and The Dark Crystal to help elevate the production. So much so that he established the "Creature Shop", a puppet studio that became renowned for being as brilliant with puppetry as ILM is at special effects.

This cult hit utilises his masterful puppeteering experience to produce a set of memorable characters that come to life in a unique fantasy world full of puzzles and magic all set to a killer soundtrack performed by the late-great David Bowie that helps highlight the charm and dangers of this movie universe.

Synopsis

In the dying days of the old west, an elderly sheriff and his posse set out to rescue their town's doctor from cannibalistic cave dwellers.

Reason to Watch

A dark, brutal and gritty Western that rockets through the preconception of an optimistic story of path finding and freedom on the wild frontier and instead provides a gripping gore and horroresque tale of a daring rescue attempt.

Smartly written and carefully shot producing intense and exciting moments in the transition from civilised dialogue to primordial barbarism

Synopsis

A virtuous Hong Kong Police Officer must clear his good name when the drug lord he is after frames him for the murder of a dirty cop.

Reason to Watch

Jackie Chan declared that this movie was his favourite movie he ever performed in, and that's even after his horrible burns and scars caused by a certain pole slide stunt!

With incredible stunt work, daredevil jumps and butt-kicking action, the key to the film is Chan's total commitment and astounding athleticism

Synopsis

Humans fight mutants in a post-holocaust world.

Reason to Watch

As suggested by Mitchy!

The film is terribly low-budget but there is a great deal of ingenuity with the special effects and action sequences. Does that mean they're good? Nope!

Synopsis

People from a small town are attacked by evil radioactive tree roots growing in the forest.

Reason to Watch

A 1993 Canadian-Italian horror feature film directed by Aristide Massaccesi. The same team behind the masterpiece known as Troll 2. At least five characters complain about the ungodly Alaskan heat. The boss at the nuclear power plant might be the greatest actor ever seen on film. His tone of voice never changes. Its an amazing feat of line reading. This man deserved an award for this performance. No one can be that horrible. Truly a commentary on the robotic nature of our everyday lives. This man deserves our respect. Also look out for those flying roots. Tremendous special effects work permeates this film. Check out that helicopter crash. Was that a fisher price model? I do believe it was. And how about the toy truck bulldozer.

Don Dohler MUST have grew up during the fifties/early sixties and been a tremendously big fan of the monster-movies of that period! How else could you justify this schlock cheesy Sci-Fi horror movie he unleashed upon the world in the 80's

Synopsis

A cyborg is programmed to kill a scientist who holds the fate of mankind in his hands. He fails and hides in a diner in a desert run by a woman who likes him. The people who sent him are after him and so is the local arm wrestling champ.

Reason to Watch

Hands of Steel is not a particularly good movie, but it certainly is a ton of silly fun. Italian B-Movies have a weird flavour all their own, and this one is no exception. European schlock-meisters obviously love American movies and want to make their films look and feel as "American" as possible, but something almost always feels like it got lost in the translation - even when they use American actors and film in U.S. locations, like they did here.

Synopsis

A naturalist living with big cats in East Africa expects a visit by his family of four from Chicago. A mix-up leaves him searching for his family, who have been left in the clutches of wild lions.

Reason to Watch

The problem lies with writer/director/star Noel Marshall, he of the wild hair and dubious acting talents. Marshall thought it would be a good idea to mix together a ton of different big cats, including a number of male lions, and throw them in with unprepared actors, including his wife Tippi Hedren and stepdaughter Melanie Griffiths. The resulting shooting schedule saw over 70 injuries to cast and crew, the most infamous of which was the director of photography, Jan De Bont, getting scalped.
