A look at my growing Movie Soundtracks Collection! (Vinyl)

The last couple years I've really grown to enjoy listening to and collecting Movie Soundtracks & Scores on Vinyl! Companies such as Death Waltz Recording Company, One Way Static, Mondo, and Waxwork Records have been putting out some killer reissues of Horror Movie Soundtracks for well known movies such as "Halloween" and "Poltergeist", as well some obscure choices like "The Deadly Spawn" and "The Forbidden World"! Below are some of these reissues I've purchased along with some records I found while at Flea Markets (the place to find the real Strange Shit!) and Record Stores! I mostly look for 80s Cult Flicks, Soundtracks from Brian De Palma and John Carpenter films, and scores done by Giorgio Moroder!

Custom Hasbro Wrestling Figures based off of Hulk Hogan's Movie Roles!

If we were ever to pick an actor here to be the "Patron Saint of Shit Movie Fest", it's safe to say that Legendary Wrestler Hulk Hogan would definitely in the running! 

Hogan really excelled in small roles and cameo appearance in movies such as "Rocky 3", "Gremlins 2", and "Spy Hard"; but when he was the main star the results were a mixed bag to say the least! I happen to love Epic Cheesefest that are "No Holds Barred" and "Suburban Commando", but the rest of Hogan's Filmography is almost unwatchable in my opinion. Regardless of that opinion, I can't help but be in awe of toy customizer Tommy's Customs and his "Hulk Hogan Movie Project"! Late last year Tommy started making a figure for every appearance of Hogan's Movie Work! The figures as you will see below are the same mold of the famed Hasbro line of WWF Toys from the early 90s (See my Collection), which is perfect cause they were the toys that where around when Hogan was making these Cinema Treasures!

Monster 500 (Toy Line)

 In the past here on the blog I talked about my love for a 90s toy line called "Savage Mondo Blitzers", they were mini monsters/oddballs that rode on skate boards! They didn't do all that much, but they looked extremely cool and I couldn't help but love them! Every now and then I will check out Ebay to track down the ones from the collection that I am missing if the price is right!

(Back Card to S.M.B.)

Any way today while at the store I happened upon a (new?) line of toys called "Monster 500" that reminded me a lot of my beloved Savage Mondo Blitzers mixed with Rat Fink and Twisted Metal!

Like S.M.B., the Monster 500 toys are racers, but to keep with the kids that are aimed towards, they also come with a code to unlock characters on a Monsters 500 IPhone game!

The Shitmas 2013 Round Up!

Thanks again everyone for making the third edition of "Shitmas" a HUGE Success! There's no way any of this would be possible without the help of all those that wrote up their posts and also shared them all over social media! I had a lot of fun this year reading everything and once again finding out about some cool Holiday films that I've never knew about in the process!
Below you will find a link to every post along with a link to each person's respected website/page . . .

Lethal Weapon Director’s Cut (A Shitmas Post from Steve Johnson of "Icon vs. Icon"!)

The last time I talked to you guys, I was educating you on the pure awesomeness of John McClane’s exploits in ‘Die Hard 2’.  Sure there are plenty more ‘Die Hard’ movies to review, but lets face it, the Christmas element was dropped and they slowly became steaming piles of shit.  So I’m going to take you back to Los Angeles and the Christmas season by familiarizing you guys with a little film from 1987 called ‘Lethal Weapon’.

I know what you are thinking, how the hell is ‘Lethal Weapon’ a Christmas movie?  It opens up to Jingle Bell Rock for god’s sake, so shut the hell up.  We begin this spectacle with some nice t&a and drug use.  This movie already screams the Christmas season.  The next thing you know this drugged out piece of ass takes a header off of the balcony and destroys what looks like a perfectly good Chrysler LeBaron.  Damn Richard Donner, you sure do know how to get this guy’s attention.

Vault Master’s Top Ten “Killer” cinematic gifts for your arch-nemesis! (A Shitmas Post from The B-Movie Film Vault)

It’s been ages since I’ve taken part in a blog-a-thon, roundtable, or team-up event online, so I was pretty excited when I was invited to take part in this year’s 25 Days of Shit-Mas celebration! (Hosted by Shit Movie Fest!) I wanted in, but the one thing that almost stopped me from joining in on the festivities was a complete lack of ideas. Most of the films I considered reviewing were already spoken for, so I wanted to try and bring something fresh to the table.

And then it happened: Whilst listening to Christmas music on a hellish loop at work, a random idea popped into my head, and produced a grinchy smile on my face. “What would I give someone I truly hated for Christmas?” By the end of my shift, the idea had evolved further into “What item, that only exists in the cinematic universe, would I gift to my arch nemesis?” After some brainstorming and note making, I had a pretty sizable list of deadly toys, pets, snacks, puzzles, and books that I had to narrow down to a solid ten items.
In the end, I hacked the mighty list down to ten items representing nearly every category of Christmas gift you can imagine. And here they are in no particular order:
