These 2 movies are TERRIBLE! I can't tell whether these movies are
comedies or a sci-fi films or what! Anyway, the basic plot to one of them (I
forgot which one!) is that there are these 4 or 5 geeks in a high school
science club. The problem is that they are the only geeks in the high
school science club. And since their club has no members, some fraternity
club thing is going to get their meeting room. (Of course! School
administrators ALWAYS choose fraternities over educational clubs!) So these
science club members cook up this chemical/stuff and drink it. The stuff
gives them psychic powers whenever they raise one of their eyebrows! So they
somehow get their meeting room back. Cast of characters: The frat boys, some
hero guy, some typically sweet heroine, a slut, a male slut, and two
teachers who WANT each other!
This movie is terrible! Ugh! I can't believe no one's written about this
If you (for some demented reason) WANT to watch it, it's on USA half

[...] which stars Sean Connery in some twisted vision of
the future of Earth. He doesn't have any lines for about the first
thirty minutes of the movie, and flies around the earth in the mouth of
a giant head, while wearing a diaper.

Atrociously stupid, cliche-ridden story about... well, the McGuffin of
the story is this gun-type thing, but who cares? Every time they tried
to build tension we snickered, and halfway through the first one we had
better jokes than they did. (And this is from someone who loved

ZOMBIE LAKE (original title LE LAC DES MORTS VIVANTS) (1980)
Union Films S.A.
Directed by Jean Rollin who was apparently so ashamed that he
used the pseudonym J.A.Laser.
This is basically a cautionary tale about the dangers of nude
dog-paddling in lakes in former Nazi-occupied Europe. It seems
that some of the lakes may be breeding grounds for old geezers
who cover themselves in avocado green house paint and buy their
wardrobes at the local Army Surplus store.

ZONTAR THE THING FROM VENUS (1966) American International
It's about the evil overlord of Venus Zontar's plans
for taking over the earth by mind control. The mind control is done by
Injectopods, which are things that fly around and sting people in the
neck. They make the flying fried egg looking thing that got Spock in
the back on an episode of Star Trek look like a first class special
effect. Zontar himself looks kind of like a mutated bat. The end has a
hilarious anti-commie political speech. I think this movie was made in
1966, and it stars John Agar. It's a remake of an earlier Roger Corman
movie (which I haven't seen) called It Conquered the World.
