The Hunger Games

Not bad — just bland.


Rod Lott

Karate-Robo Zaborgar

This one’s rightfully robo-cocked.


Rod Lott
Japan's Karate-Robo Zaborgar is a movie that has everything: a female cyborg girl with a detachable head and with missiles hidden in her metal bra, a samurai robot with enormous lips, a floating castle, a lactating man, multiple exploding footballs, a flying wheelchair powered by flatulence, and, lest we forget, sex tentacles.

The Sorcerers

Boris Karloff gets hooked on a feeling.


Rod Lott
Boris Karloff plays one of The Sorcerers in an obscure 1967 thriller from Warner Archive. To be more precise, he’s Dr. Marcus Monserrat, “practitioner of medical hypnosis.” Yet what he and his wife (Catherine Lacey, The Lady Vanishes) really itch to try out is something more sinister.
