Shaun Berk's 10 Movie Recommendations- 776th Edition and the Madness: Nature Bites- Week 4


Welcome to the 776th edition of my series.  I'm a little late this week.  I had one more day before the last edition of the Madness was due so I needed a little more time to get done.  Next week is the 15 year anniversary of this movie blog.  I hope everyone had a good holiday however celebrated and now I'll just put out my recommendations for the week.

Bringing Out the Dead (1999):  Martin Scorsese directed this film based on the novel by Joe Connelly.  Nicolas Cage stars as ambulance driver Frank Pierce who has been working non-stop and is very burned out and seeing ghosts.  Each night he gets a very different partner in Tom Sizemore, John Goodman, and Ving Rhames and while trying to get fired, his boss continues to refuse.  Patricia Arquette, Mark Anthony, Cliff Curtis, Nestor Serrano, Aida Turturro, Sonja Sohn, Beth Beth Hurt, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jon Abrahams, and many others co-star in this film.  I find this is a satire on life as an EMT.  It also conveys the difficulty and the price of overworking someone in this field.  I always thought this was a very underrated work for Scorsese and a very underrated work for Nicolas Cage.

Suspiria (2018):  Luca Guadagnino directed this film inspired by the 1977 Dario Argento movie of the same name.  Dakota Johnson stars as ambitious American ballet dancer Susie Bannion who travels to Berlin to study under a school run by Madame Blanc, played by Tilda Swinton.  As soon as she gets there, strange things start to happen to Susie.  Chloe Grace Moretz, Malgorzata Bela, Angela Winkler, Alek Wek, Elena Fokina, Mia Goth, Ingrid Caven, Sylvie Testud, Fabrizia Sacchi, Renee Soutendijk, Jessica Harper, and many others co-star in this film.  Johnson took two years of ballet in preparation for this movie.  This is very hard to describe beyond what I already did.  I believe I saw the original at some point but it has been awhile.  The cinematography in this movie was amazing, it has a very creepy feel, especially the climax of the film.

Excalibur (1981):  John Boorman directed this rather bizarre take on the Arthurian legend which is based on the book by Thomas Mallory.  Nigel Terry stars as Arthur who is able to pull out a sword from a stone that no one else could thus becoming king.  He is mentored by Merlin, played by Nicol Williamson, and marries Guenevere, played by Cherie Lunghi, while forming the infamous Knights of the Round Table.  His evil sister Morgana, played by a young Helen Mirren, could prove to be his downfall.  Nicholas Clay co-stars as Sir Lancelot and I have always felt he had the best film portrayal. Paul Geoffrey, Robert Addie, Keith Buckley, Katrine Boorman, Liam Neeson, Corin Redgrave, Patrick Stewart, Clive Swift, Ciaran Hinds, and many others co-star in this film.  Lunghi, Byrne, Neeson, and Hinds all make their film debuts in this movie.  I remember being shown this in high school and remembering it being quite out there.  I think a lot of people were introduced to the Arthurian legend under the 1963 Disney film THE SWORD IN THE STONE where Merlin was a bumbling but lovable wizard.  In this movie, the character is much darker and so is everything in general.  This holds nothing back in the way of violence and does have a pretty cool operatic song that usually conveys action.  This version is not for everyone and I think I have described enough for those to make that decision.

Final Curtain (1957):  This is my short film for the week which was written and directed by none other than the worst director himself Edward D. Wood Jr.  Duke Moore stars as an actor roaming the theater in belief there is something creepy going on and is mostly reacting to the narration of Dudley Manlove.  He comes across a mannequin, played by Jeannie Stevens, but turns out to be a vampire.  This was thought to be lost until 2012 when it was uncovered and premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival.  The Duke Moore role was meant for Bela Lugosi but had died before the filming.  This was actually Wood's attempt to get into television by writing pilot episode for a proposed series called PORTRAITS OF TERROR which obviously never got off the ground.  If you like Ed Wood, this 22 minute short is quite worth it.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920):  This is my silent film for the week which was directed by John S. Robertson and based on the classic novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.  John Barrymore stars in the dual role of a doctor with very good intentions of separating what he feels is the good and evil of everyone.  When doing this, he becomes the murderous Mr. Hyde.  Brandon Hurst, Martha Mansfield, Nita Naldi, and many others co-star in this silent horror classic.  I think most people know this story by now.  This was at least the first of many feature films through the years unless there was a short made before this.  This has been remade, retold, parodied, and just about everything else including a musical, more on that later.

The Sugarland Express (1974):  Steven Spielberg directed this crime film.  Goldie Hawn stars as Lou Jean who breaks her husband Clovis, played by William Atherton, out of prison even though he only has a few months left in his sentence.  They set out to kidnap their son that is in foster care but end up having to take a police officer, played by Michael Sacks, hostage as they go on the road and on the run.  Ben Johnson, Gregory Walcott, Steve Kanaly, Louise Latham, and many others co-star in this crime film.  This is based on a true story.  This does have some good humor to keep it going, mostly from Hawn who we know is a funny person.  This was Spielberg's directorial debut for the big screen and was a great start as he would put out JAWS the next year.

Megamind (2010):  This is my animated superhero comedy for the week which was directed by Tom McGrath.  Will Ferrell stars as supervillain Megamind who has killed his nemesis in superhero Metro Man, voiced by Brad Pitt.  With no one left to fight, he becomes very bored and has no meaning in his life.  He decides to create a hero in Tighten, voiced by Jonah Hill, but things go wrong when Tighten decides to destroy the city making Megamind have to be a hero for once.  Tina Fey, David Cross, Ben Stiller, Justin Theroux, J.K. Simmons, Mike Mitchell, and many others provide their voice in this animated film from Dreamworks.  I have had a lot of very dark selections this week but this is a more family-friendly one and is very fun with a lot of references that superhero buffs might pick up upon.

Day of Anger (1967):  This is my spaghetti western for the week so made in Italy and directed by Tonino Valerii.  Giuliano Gemma stars as Scott who works menial jobs like sweeping floors and picking up trash and is treated very badly in his town.  Gunslinger Frank Talby comes to town and takes in Scott giving him guidance in life and makes him toughen up.  Scott becomes quite the gunslinger in his own right and slowly notices how that makes him a big target.  Walter Rilla, Christa Linder, Lukas Ammann, and many others co-star in this western.  This was a very intriguing western that focuses on the relationship of Frank and Scott.  This also has one of the best duel scenes of all time that involved coming at each other from a distance on horses.  The theme music is used in Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED.  I found this to be one of the more enjoyable westerns for me and you'll learn a lot of lessons when watching this.

Forbidden Planet (1956):  Fred M. Wilcox directed this sci-fi film which is loosely based on William Shakespeare's THE TEMPEST.  Leslie Nielson stars as Commander Adams who leads a crew consisting of Lt. Farman, played by Jack Kelly, and Lt. Doc Ostrow, played by Warren Stevens, to investigate a planet that is inhabited by scientists but has gone silence.  When there, they find that Dr. Morbius, played by Walter Pidgeon, and his daughter Altaira, played by Anne Francis, are the only survivors as well as Robby the Robot who makes his debut in this film.  Richard Anderson, Earl Holliman, George Wallace, and many others co-star in this sci-fi film.  This is one of the better sci-fi movies from this era and goes beyond "B-movie".  This has a really good story with good performances.  It also has some good special effects that I feel still hold up today and appear to have taken quite a bit of effort in this non-CGI era.  Robby makes a great debut but was discriminated against by the Academy for being a robot so was not able to get any acting nomination.  He unsuccessfully fought the Academy for the rights of robots for many years in hopes that maybe one day they could land a best actor or actress nomination.

The Hunger Games (2012):  I end this week with this futuristic film which was directed by Gary Ross and based on the novel by Suzanne Collins.  This takes place in a Dystopian society which is divided by district and each year a televised event of the title is held where 24 young participants are chosen being a male and female from each district.  These people must fight to the death.  Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss Everdeen whose younger sister Primrose, played by Willow Shields is selected to participate but volunteers to replace her.  Josh Hutcherson co-stars as Peeta Mallark who is the other District 12 participant.  They must train for the games with not only their fighting but showmanship they need to win over the crowd to get sponsors that will help for survival.  Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley, Paula Malcomson, Raiko Bowman, Woody Harrelson, Toby Jones, Kimiko Gelman, Nelson Ascencio, Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland, Amandla Stenberg, Dayo Okeniyi, and many others co-star in this film.  This is Lawrence's breakthrough role and came through very well as the heroic underdog Katniss.  This has some really good action and in interesting society that seems to rely on showmanship.

Well that is it for this week but keep on reading for the last week of the Madness.  Tell me what you like and dislike and stay tuned for the 14 year anniversary which will include selections from all ten actors named as wild cards for this year's Madness.


This is the last week of our annual contest.  I have had a lot more time this year to watch movies and tv shows for this contest and honestly became quite obsessed.  This is likely the most productive year I have had in years for the Madness.  I hope that next year I finally get my Women in Horror theme I have always wanted.


Tony is not a wild card this year but has been in the past so I thought I'd make him into a category this year.

Evening Primrose (1966, 51 minutes, 666):  This was actually a tv special for the series ABC STAGE 67 which was a musical episode written by Stephen Sondheim.  Anthony stars as burned out poet Charles Snell who seeks refuge in a department store after hours to be alone only to find a secret society of people being there.  This should qualify as fantasy as they appear to be mannequins coming to life and the idea that no one can leave with the fear of the "dark men".  All I have to say is Anthony Perkins in a musical and I guess Sondheim would be the ideal sort of musical for him.

Psycho II (1983, 113 minutes, 666):  Anthony Perkins returns to the role of Norman Bates that made him an icon after 23 years in this rather decent sequel to the Hitchcock classic.  Norman gets released after 22 years in an institution.  He goes back to hotel hoping to leave a quiet life but continues to be haunted by his past.

Psycho III (1986, 93 minutes, 66 1/2):  Tony reprises Norman Bates and goes behind the camera on this one.  Norman falls for a fallen nun, played by Diana Scarwid, who reminds him of Marion Crane.  Jeff Fahey and Roberta Maxwell co-star as others who do not make it easy for Norman to keep from going insane.

Psycho IV:  The Beginning (1990, 96 minutes, 66 1/2):  Tony reprises the role he just could not escape in Norman Bates.  In this one, Norman speaks to a radio talk show host recalling how the problems with his mother started.  This has flashback scenes with Olivia Hussey as his mother and Henry Thomas playing a young Norman Bates.



Brad is not a wild card this year but I had quite a few of his movies on my list that qualify so I made him into a category.

Ad Astra (2019, 122 minutes, 66 1/2):  Brad stars as astronaut Roy McBride and is sent out to find his missing father and learns more than he wants.  This does have a disaster element to it with the radiation attack and there is a baboon attack.

Cutting Class (1989, 91 minutes, 66):  A young Brad Pitt co-stars in this murder mystery which deals with a serial killer and is billed as horror.  While this movie is not very good, Brad did pay his dues to get where he is today and sometimes I admire that in a movie.  Wall of Voodoo got to use some of their music beyond MEXICAN RADIO but unfortunately did not further their career.

Interview with the Vampire:  The Vampire Chronicles (1994, 123 minutes, 666):  This is really where I remember first meeting Brad in this adaptation of the popular Anne Rice novel where he plays the conflicted vampire Louis.  Watching this again, I almost feel the character Angel from BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER is like Lestat, played by Tom Cruise, when he is Angelus, and based on Louis when he is the brooding Angel after being cursed with a soul.  Deep thoughts with Shaun Berkey, I know.

Megamind (2010, 95 minutes, 666):  Brad plays defeated superhero Metro Man.  I believe that Minion's fish like looks should make this qualify for the Madness.



Brian is not a wild card but I found a couple selections to make a category for him.

Charmed:  Thank You for Not Morphing S1, E3 (1998, 44 minutes, 666):  Brian is introduced on the end of this episode as the handyman of the Charmed Ones but to those who watched the show he was far more than a "handyman".  This episode also introduces their estranged father Victor who comes back after 20 years.  This episode has shapeshifters where they became a possessed dog and later crows.

Growth (2010, 90 minutes, 66):  Brian co-stars in this virus outbreak movie as Marco so the parasites should get me some bonus points.



Charisma is not a wild card this year but someone I grew up with as a Buffy and Angel fan so I decided to make her a category.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:  Graduation Day, Part 2 (1999, 44 minutes, 666):  This is Charisma's last episode on this series as Cordelia before she would move onto the spin-off ANGEL the next season.  I have always thought of this as my favorite finale of this series along with seasons two and five.  In this episode, the mayor of Sunnydale becomes a giant lizard-like creature so should maybe get some bonus points there.

Psychosis (2010, 89 minutes, 66):  Charisma stars as horror writer Susan who encounters ghostly images and appears to be stalked by the ghost of a serial killer but no one believes her.  Of worth mostly for fans of Charisma Carpenter.



Erica is not a wild card this year but found a couple of her works to make a category and maybe give some more exposure.  Looks like she could be a future wild card in our future Women in Horror theme.

Ghost Whisperer:  Hope and Mercy S1, E7 (2005, 45 minutes, 666):  This is my first time watching this show and was not bad.  Erica guest stars as the ghost Hope Paulson who dies during childbirth and turns to Melinda, played by Jennifer Love Hewitt, to help her widowed husband through his grief and self-blame.

Wrong Turn 2:  Dead End (2007, 93 minutes, 66 1/2):  I finally decided to watch one of the sequels to a horror favorite of mine.  Erica co-stars as Nina who is part of a reality tv series and the contestants are getting picked off one by one by a group of inbred cannibals.  This is not for the faint of heart.



Gabriel is not a wild card this year but could be one day and I had enough selections on my list to make a category for him.

Excalibur (1981, 140 minutes, 666):  Gabriel plays the reckless Uther Pendragon who is the father of the future King Arthur.  This is a very dark fantasy so should count for some points.

Vampire Academy (2014, 104 minutes, 66):  This is based on the series of books by Richelle Mead.  Gabriel essentially plays the headmaster of this school.  There are possessed hounds but not sure if those attacks work for vampires.



Jeffrey is not a wild card but has done quite a bit of horror so I found a couple on my list to make him into a category and was in last week's madness selection RE-ANIMATOR which I put under Zombies.

House on Haunted Hill (1999, 93 minutes, 66 1/2):  I thought this was a pretty enjoyable remake.  Jeffrey plays the evil Dr. Vannacutt in this movie about people being invited to a haunted house and being paid for survival.  I didn't know I'd see Buffy and Angel alum James Marsters in the beginning.

Parasomnia (2008, 103 minutes, 66 1/2):  Jeffrey co-stars in his horror film as Detective Garrett.  This is about a girl who suffers from a disease called parasomnia where she sleeps most of the time and appears to be controlled to do evil deeds.



I made a category for the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and is likely the only time John Barrymore and David Hasselhoff will be in a category together.  Many may cringe.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920, 69 minutes, 666):  Barrymore plays Dr. Henry Jekyll and his evil persona Mr. Hyde.

Jekyll and Hyde:  The Musical (2001, 135 minutes, 66 1/2):  This is kind of an annual watch for me these days for the Madness.  This is a filmed stage musical which stars the Hoff as Jekyll and Hyde.



Jennifer is not a wild card this year but maybe one day she will be if I ever get the women in horror category I have been trying to get.

The Hunger Games (2012, 142 minutes, 666):  Jennifer plays the heroic teen Katniss Everdeen.  This should count for having the Dystopian future.  It should also qualify for bonus points for things like the bees and some mutant dogs that came into play.

X-Men:  Days of Future Past (2014, 148 minutes, 666 1/2):  Jennifer reprises her role as Mystique in the X-men film.  I watched the longer version which they "the Rogue Cut" which gives Rogue a little bit bigger part than the first release.  No argument really needed here to have this counted.  The future world has quite the disaster element so maybe bonus point there.



Jerry is not a wild card this year but came up with a couple selections to make him into a category this year.

Sliders:  Pilot S1, E1 (1995, 87 minutes, 666):  This is the popular Fox series which starred Jerry and probably what put him out there in the acting world.  This is a fantasy so should count for that and in their travel of dimensions, there was one that was frozen so maybe disaster.

Sliders:  Fever S1, E2 (1995, 44 minutes, 666):  In this one, the team ends up in a dimension where a lot of people are sick and antibiotics have not been discovered so they are essentially in a pandemic or epidemic.

Scary Movie V (2013, 88 minutes, 66):  This is the last of the horror comedy franchise where Jerry has a cameo as Christian Grey in their spoof of 50 SHADES OF GREY.  There is also a parody of PLANET OF THE APES where apes attack humans so maybe bonus points there.



This young actress is not a wild card this year but has a couple selections for me to make her into a category.

Case 39 (2009, 109 minutes, 66 1/2):  Renee Zellweger plays a very idealistic social worker who feels she is doing a young girl named Lily, played by Jodelle, who is not quite the innocent victim she claims to be.  I suppose this could be a good double feature to have with BAD SEED.

Masters of Horror:  The V Word S2, E3 (2006, 59 minutes, 66):  This was an anthology series produced by Anchor Bay.  In this episode, a couple teens break into a mortuary looking for thrills but encounter a vampire instead.  Jodelle plays Sarah who is the younger sister of one of the teens. 



Mr. Depp is not a wild card this year but had a couple on my list where he had a couple supporting roles.

Into the Woods (2014, 125 minutes, 66 1/2):  This is the movie adaptation on Stephen Sondheim's dark fairy tale musical.  Johnny has more of a cameo in this as the wolf and maybe some attack points.  There is also a giant and some birds that attack that giant so not sure if that kind of attack will count.

Yoga Hosers (2016, 88 minutes, 66 1/2):  Johnny is pretty unrecognizable in the role of Guy Lapointe.  Kevin Smith directed this horror comedy that stars his own daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Depp's daughter Lily-Rose Depp as teenage best friends both having the name Colleen who battle an evil presence where they work.  I thought these girls made a really good duo which kind of satirizes the younger generation always on their phone.  I thought of them as a female Beavis and Butthead in some ways in the way they are not liked much by those around them.  All I have to say is that it is Kevin Smith horror and most will know what I mean.



Lee is a wild card this year and continue to find some westerns.

Day of Anger (1967, 111 minutes, 666 1/2):  I really liked this Spaghetti western and is counts because Lee is in this movie.



Leslie is a wild card this year.  

Forbidden Planet (1956, 98 minutes, 666):  As a sci-fi film, this usually would not count but Leslie is in this movie so it counts.  Also, there is a tiger that tries to attack a couple humans for bonus points.



Melora is not a wild card this year but I have a couple things on my list to make her into a category.

The Butterfly Effect (2004, 113 minutes, 666 1/2):  I finally watched this for the first time.  Melora stars as the mother of Evan who suffers blackouts.  Evan, played by Ashton Kutcher, finds a way to go back in time but each time he changes something, someone else is effected.

Venom (2018, 112 minutes, 66 1/2):  Tom Hardy takes on the role of Eddie Brock who is infected with an alien symbiotic named Venom and they must team up to save earth.  I am not sure if the alien symbiotic element qualifies as extra points.



Mindy is not a wild card but found a couple Pixar selections she was in so I thought I'd make this OFFICE alum into a category.

Inside Out (2015, 95 minutes, 666):  This pixar film should at least qualify as fantasy.  Mindy co-stars in this movie as the emotion of Disgust.  This is a pretty good look on what a kid might go through where each emotion is a a creature of sorts and must work together.

Wreck-It Ralph (2012, 101 minutes, 666 1/2):   This is a great homage to the video game world.  Mindy voices the character of Taffyta Muttonfudge.



Patricia is not a wild card this year but would be a really good candidate for a women in horror theme which I'm sure many have seen me mention many times.

Bringing Out the Dead (1999, 121 minutes, 666):  Patricia plays Nicolas Cage's love interest Mary Burke.  This might take some argument but I believe the dark story and the ghostly images that Cage has throughout the film should make this count.

Little Nicky (2000, 90 minutes, 66):  Patricia plays the love interest of the Devil's son Nicky, played by Adam Sandler, so obviously counts.  What I tend to enjoy about Sandler comedies are all the cameos and this has quite a few.  Possible bonus points for a large group of bees attacking Henry Winkler.


This famous author is not a wild card but has been in the past like last year when the Madness mostly centered around him.

It (2017, 135 minutes, 666):  This is the remake to the 1990 mini-series that they made into two movies.  Stephen wrote this popular novel of the clown Pennywise, played by Bill Skarsgard to feeds of the fears of a group of kids.

It:  Chapter Two (2019, 169 minutes, 666):  This is the continuation of the first one where the kids dealing with Pennywise are all grown up and must band together 27 years later when they learn he is back terrorizing the town.  That is Stephen King in a cameo appearance.

Pet Sematary (1989, 103 minutes, 66):  This was my first time watching and was nothing like what I was expecting.  There is a cat attack happening for bonus points.  That is Stephen in a cameo appearance.



I continue my selections of this wild card.

Animaniacs S1, E3 (1993, 22 minutes, 666):  This Spielberg animated series counts and it's amazing how I never really picked up on these Hollywood references when it was on.  The Warners are creatures of sort and shoot a pirate with a cannon so maybe attack points.

The Sugarland Express (1974, 110 minutes, 666):  This crime movie would not usually count in this contest but Steven Spielberg directed so I get to further prove to be the King of the Loophole.

Tiny Toon Adventures:  The Wheel O' Comedy S1, E3 (1990, 24 minutes, 666):  This Spielberg produced animated series counts because of Steve being a wild card.  There are also some possible bonus points with Elmyra trying to handle a squirrel which tried to bite her.  Also, the character Dizzy Devil movies in a funnel cloud like a tornado and knocks Elmyra over with it.



Swamp Thing:  Pilot S1, E1 (2019, 59 minutes, 666):  I came across this DC series that is on the CW network.  Crystal Reed stars as Abby Arcane who returns to her town of Marais to investigate a mysterious illness going on.  This also starts our character Swamp Thing and we see the transformation so bonus point there and point for the local epidemic happening.

Swamp Thing:  Worlds Apart S1, E2 (2019, 44 minutes, 666):  In this one, Alec starts trying to adjust to his new state of being a creature.  Abby encounters Swamp Thing in this episode.  The Swamp Thing character and the virus element should have some bonus. 

Swamp Thing:  He Speaks S1, E3 (2019, 44 minutes, 666):  Alec is haunted by what he has done as Swamp Thing and begins to see his purpose.  Another bonus point for the Swamp Thing and the epidemic.

Swamp Thing:  Darkness on the Edge of Town S1, E4 (2019, 44 minutes, 666):  People in the town are having hallucinations and Abby tries to help Alec who is now Swamp Thing.  The title character and epidemic happening should get more bonus points.



How can I leave this wild card out, especially this selection.

The Big Lebowski (1998):  I figured if I'm to be the King of the Loophole I'd better include this selection in which Tara plays Bunny Lebowski in this cult classic.  I know some have turned away from this film because of the hype but it is still really funny so I'll continue watching from time to time.



Tilda is not a wild card but would be another good candidate for a women in horror category.

Snowpiercer (2013, 126 minutes, 66 1/2):  Tilda co-stars as mason in this futuristic movie where the world is frozen and a failed experiment left only a few survivors.  I believe this qualifies for bonus points with the disaster element of global warming.

Suspiria (2018, 152 minutes, 66 1/2):  Tilda plays dance instructor Dr. Klemperer in this horror remake.  No explanation really needed to count this one as horror.



Tippi is a wild card this year so I was able to get her one more selection.

I Woke Up Early the Day I Died (1998, 90 minutes, 66 1/2):  Tippi co-stars as Maylinda in this mostly silent comedy.  Billy Zane stars as an escaped mental patient referred to as "The Thief".  He robs a bank but his stolen money gets stolen and sets out to find it.  I have been wanting to see this especially since it has two of out wild cards this year in Tippi and Tara Reid.  This was a script that had been written by the worst director of all time in Edward D. Wood Jr.  I was having lunch with my friend Brittany at a local bar.  Our bartender Buff is the go to for b-movies so I asked if he had this and was able to send me a file to watch.  This has quite the cast from this era and a small role by Conrad Brooks who was in a lot of Ed Wood movies.  Zane clearly had a lot of fun in this movie.



Tom is not a wild card this year but was able to come up with a couple selections to qualify him as a category. 

The Apparition (2012, 82 minutes, 66 1/2):  Tom co-stars as Patrick in this ghost story who is haunted by a supernatural presence that was unleashed during a college experiment with a friend.  Almost reminded me of the song THE FRESHMEN by Verve Pipe.

The Flash:  Finish Line S3, E23 (2017, 45 minutes, 666):  This is the third season finale where the Flash takes on Savitar in one final battle.  This is the last episode of Tom's stint on this show as Julian Albert.  I remember it taking me a few episodes to realize this is the same person that played Malfoy in the HARRY POTTER franchise.



Final Curtain (1957, 20 minutes, 66):  There is a vampire in this short film directed by Edward D. Wood Jr.

The Lair of the White Worm (1988, 93 minutes, 66 1/2):  This qualifies on account of the white worm as they call it and the vampire like person.



Will is not a wild card this year but found a couple selections to make this comedic actor a category.

Despicable Me (2010, 95 minutes, 666 1/2):  This should qualify as a creature feature on account of the minions.  Will provides the voice of Mr Perkins who is a banker that Gru is trying to get funding for his next scheme.  The look kind of reminds me of the boss in DILBERT.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:  Out of the Shadows (2016, 112 minutes, 666):  Will co-stars in this film as Vernon Fenwick who is an ally to the turtles even if he might exaggerate his accomplishments.  This has mutated turtles, a mutated rat and humans that turn into a rhinoceros and warthog in Bebob and Rocksteady.
