Landing this mask over an unsuspecting victim's melon, sproinging blades constrict around the neck. A yank of the chain pops the cork clean off. Voila! Effective....deadly!
The fact that this freelance decapitator is as blind as a bat, doesn't stop him from getting his man. Even if that means beheading every one-armed man in the territory. Coincidently, there seems to be just that type of individual every five feet in front of him. So he really has his work cut-out.
The actual one-armed guy in question, spends most of his time running his own martial arts school teaching his students to walk on ceilings, and hanging with an Indian rubber-guy with a ten-foot reach. Handy for raiding lots of cookie-jars, and too quick for mom to notice.
After our quirky little assassin mistakes a one-armed fighter for his target in one of the matches of the tournament , he quickly does away with him with his trusty bowling ball-scooper (well, that's all it's good for every other time). Well this pisses off alot of people. KUNG-FU PEOPLE in fact! Including the actual one-armed guy. And quickly they convene to take this party-crasher out. What culminates after alot of killing, is a show-down between the one-armed guy, the one-armed guy's derelict, street-urchant girlfriend, and the guy with the flying guillotine. You'll have to guess what happens next to finish off this cinematic spin-cycle. I'm not at liberty to give away the ending. Although at the conclusion there is a touching and harrowing epilogue about the legendary 'One-Armed Nun'.
Evidently, this is a Quentin Tarantino favorite, and he recommends this little gem to all his fans. Isn't that sweet?!Frank Lund, firstname.lastname@example.org
I guess it was about a bunch of trucks and other machines going on a killing spree. It didn't really give me a chance to pick up a plot line of any sort. Estevez even came to try to explain the plot at one time in the movie. I couldn't tell what the heck he was talking about. He used quite a few metaphors. There was even a little conclusion at the end of the movie, which said that, "...a Russian 'spy' satellite" shot down a UFO afterwards, but it also said that the Earth passed out of the tail of this comet soon after. So which was it? Anyway, these machines start small, like an electric knife cuts this waitress' arm. Then a gas pump sprays in this guys eye. It only goes downhill from there. Eventually, after a bunch of other massacres, they blow up the one semi that, as far as I can see, started the whole affair. Then they get away in a sailboat. Why it hadn't gone berserk, I really know.
They had to literally cut this movie in half to put it on cable, and it was still pretty gory after that. If you can handle all of this kind of stuff, though, the movie is completely stupid. Pointless, in fact. Trucks going mad on a truck stop in North Carolina. I couldn't believe that Stephen King wrote it. Of all his books, he picked this one. And what's more, he liked the final outcome. Anyway, it was a dumb movie, and it might be pretty funny on MST3K.DataMan40@aol.com
With Rod Steiger as the mob boss, Peter Boyle (again!) as "Matt Duffy" (get it?), and Steven Wright as a guy who just stands there.Lee Hurtado, email@example.com
It is simply about the USA and the then USSR using model rockets mounted on a ceiling ornament against a flying piece of broken off asphalt.

Some hippie guy named Leon puts on a scavenger hunt around LA and has all these kids compete in it. Somehow he pulls this off with the help and permission from various agencies, including the LAX Airport, a miniature golf course, a fast-food restaurant, a game room, and various other places. The participants split up into teams, wear identical-colored clothes, and drive around in similar-colored vehicles. This, I believe, goes off the Goofy meter. This should be good for lots of Dr. Pepper in-jokes and a few potshots at Pee Wee Herman among others.Java Island, email@example.com
ll right, I've had it. This movie MUST BE RIFFED!!! I've only seen smigens of it, but it is indeed stupid. All they did with those wussy bad guys was that they added CGI just to make them better. Otherwise, it's a bomb. I almost feared this movie would make the 1996 Academy Awards, although I was glad that it didn't. I find the skysurfing jig in the beginning inane, the Power Rangers just being show-offs! Then there's Ivan Ooze with no acting skills at all.
And by the way, the series is easily riffable.Russell Christiansen, firstname.lastname@example.org
Add to that a kindly old German guy, a police dad, and a "major babe" girl-next-door, and you have a recipe for thrills, chills, and an endless stream of fat kid jokes (ala Goonies). Topping it all off is the setting; suburban streets inexplicably adjacent to spooky swamps and old haunted mansions, all during the highlight of movie history, THE MID-EIGHTIES!Zach, email@example.com

[This is an Alan Smithee film, never a good sign.]
This is a Japanese kung-fu movie with special effects and popular characters. Its generic plot, boring, pointless characters, and habit of introducing more stupid characters with no backstory make me want to vomit. My friend and me were riffing it the whole time. Also, check out the goofy-ass "animality'' sequence.Magdalena Nadbrzuch-Reed, email@example.com
