The Great Vhs Collection Review #6: Heavy Metal (1981)

  There was a point in time when adult animation, and animation in general, became experimental and bizarre. This was a time when Ralph Bakshi and rotoscope animation ruled the indie circles. Though that age is over its art remains, and one of these underground classics is Heavy Metal, the personification of the frase “sex,drugs,and rock&roll”.  Since this movie is an anthology (I have many of those in my collection) I will talk about each segment individually before giving my opinion on the movie as a whole.  The Wrap Around: In most anthologies there is a “wrap around segment” that is meant to tie all of the stories together, and this one is no exception. This segment involves an astronaut returning to earth and giving his daughter a glowing green orb as a present, only for the orb to come to life, melt the astronaut, and corner the girl. The orb (called the Loc-Nar) introduces itself as “the sum of all evils” and shows her how he (I think it’s a he) has influenced the universe

Cammy - Chapter 5 by Corey R.

Chapter 5:    “Who?”, Cammy asked.   “My friend Amy. She’s always been really obsessed with anything relating to mythical beings like yourself, no offense.”, Ben began to explain to her.   “None taken.”, she said listening closely to what he was saying.   “It’s possible she has information on Fairies. Maybe there’s a book or something that can explain how to get you home. I can’t make any promises that she’ll have what we need, but it’s worth a shot.”, he finished explaining.    “Is there a way to contact this Amy person you speak of?”, Cammy asked.    “I can try to call her real quick right now. But before that, firsts things first: You need some human clothes. If Humans and your kind had a rough history before, it’s also possible people might still feel that way today. Plus, even if they didn;t kill you, you'd wind up at the circus or something if anyone else found out what you really were.”, Ben explained.    “What is ‘the circus’?”, Cammy asked in

Cammy - Chapter 4 by Corey R.

Chapter 4:    As Miles and Anne made their way to the Human World, Ben and Cammy arrived at his home and went inside. Ben gave Cammy a quick tour of all the rooms of his small home. He showed her his kitchen, bathroom, master bedroom, guest room, living room, and his office space, which was really just a second bedroom.    “I know it’s nothing fancy, but hopefully you’ll be comfortable here for now.”, Ben explained in a calm but friendly tone.    “I do not think it needs to be ‘fancy’. I think that something simple can be just as amazing. Your home is perfect. In fact, it is one of the best places I have ever seen in many years.”, Cammy responded in her same soft, but gentle tone.    “Really? Huh. Most people I’ve had over tell me I should move to a better place, but money doesn't exactly grow on trees ya know, so it’s been hard trying to save for something like that. It’s definitely nice to hear someone actually say I should just stay where I’m at.”, Ben explained

Cammy - Chapter 3 by Corey R.

Chapter 3: As Ben and Cammy walked to his home, little did they realize they were being watched by something. Or rather SOMEONE. A distance behind the pair was a strange glowing orb of light that quickly teleported away after seeing the two together. Back in the Elf Realm, Zoe was looking into her staff with a look of disgust as she saw the pair from her orb she had sent through the portal before disappearing. “So, Cammy thinks she can hide in the Human World does she? Well, little does she know that I am much more intelligent than most see me as. Apprentice, come before me! I have a task for you to do.”, She said to herself as she summoned her apprentice, who kneeled before her as he arrived. He had skin that looked like stone, short hair that matched the clouds, and a suit that looked as if he was dipped in gold. His eyes were like a night sky, but lacked the shining stars that sometimes appear. “What is it that you req

The Great VHS Collection Review #3: Arachnophobia (1990)

The Great VHS Collection Review #3: Arachnophobia(1990) I think in this first couple of reviews I have been a little harsh and negative (even if the animated Narnia movie is an ironic masterpiece), so for this one I will talk about a movie that I actually like and find is ignored in favor of Gremlins and Poltergeist in terms of suburban horror. In fact I think watching these three movies together would be a fascinating experience, the millennial scaring trilogy. The film is about a family dealing with incredibly venomous (and one cat sized) spiders, spiders that can kill with a single bite. Naturally this is not a film for anyone who actually suffers from arachnophobia, the suspense scenes are well made and timed perfectly. Watching it as an adult it is easy to see how this scared so many people when they were kids. Looking back at it now it’s not quite as scary as it could have been, it is definitely more comedy than horror. That being said the first death is done quite well and it di

Cammy - Chapter 2 By Corey R.

Chapter 2:   Meanwhile, in a small town, a young man was just finishing his work day. He looked to be no older than 20, and had a pale looking skin tone. His hair was short and looked like the night sky. His eyes had the tone of chestnuts, almost glass looking in the bright early summer sun. He wore a charcoal looking suit which reached his waist, and a tie that looked the same as the sea. On his legs, he wore pants that looked as if he wore ash on his legs instead. His shoes matched his suit to complete his outfit.    “Well, that’s a wrap people. Go home and we’ll go at this again next week.”, came the boss’s voice over his desk speaker.    Upon hearing this, the man was quick to gather his belongings, and was now on his way home. These included a notebook, small bag of pens and pencils, and a thermos of which he kept his drinks in during the day.  He didn’t live very far from the office he worked at, and since it was Friday, he was in no rush for anything. But before he left, h
