ALIEN 3 / Start Running... Again. The Bitch Is Back! - 1992

In this third installment, Ripley is the only survivor when she crash lands on Fiorina 161, a bleak wasteland inhabited by former inmates of the planet's maximum security prison. Once again, Ripley must face skepticism and the alien as it hunts down the prisoners and guards. Without weapons or modern technology of any kind, Ripley leads the men into battle against the creature from Hell.

It stars Sigourney Weaver, Charles S. Dutton, Charles Dance, Paul McGann, Brian Glover, Ralph Brown, Danny Webb, with an appearance by Lance Henriksen

Ripley's taken from the crashed ship, she's barely alive...

The inmates on Fiorina 161 don't like having a woman there, so, Ripley decides to cut her hair to look more butch for the boys...

In the meantime though, the dude cleaning the giant fan housing when hr hears some noise below, he takes a look, and, gets a face full of acid! Then, he falls back into the freakin' fan!!

Hmmm, me wondereth iffith there be an Alien in the house?!

The guy in the bed's face sends out a spoiler alert!.. Blood!!

Crazy things (involving blood and slime) start happening around their living quarters.

Then, it happens... Horror of Horrors... Ripley discovers she has a baby Alien in her!

Here's what it looks like for the Alien as it chases down a potential victim!..

This shot reminds me of some of the landscapes I've envisioned about the future.

Cool shot of Ripley and Dillon as the try and track the hideous creature.

Ripley drops cold water on the Alien after it was dropped in a vat of super hot liquid. It blows the Hell up!

Bishop II, the robot from ALIEN (what gets conked in the head by a metal bar in the scene), shows up to beg Ripley to turn over the Alien in her for study, it's a magnificent specimen!

But, our girl has other plans... She falls back into vat of death as the Alien baby pops out of her gut... Tune in Wednesday as we crawl along the dusty old Dungeon trail.

NIGHTWING - "The Night Is Theirs" (1979)

Tonight's Saturday Night Special is a weird flick from 1979 titled
"Nightwing!"

Nightwing" has a mystical vibe from the start right to the end!
There's no games and not much fun, but I think this movie is better than it is worser!

"Nightwing" is about an Indian Shaman guy named Abner. 
Abner is pissed, and has decided to end the world, and apparently, he has the right!

Nick (Night Magic, Night Of Terror) Mancuso is Youngman Duran.

Stephen (Memories Of Midnight, One Hot Summer Night) Macht is Walker Chee! 
Being from different tribes, Duran and Chee don't really like each other than much and have different ideas on how the Indian lands should be exploited or not exploited! 

George Clutesi is Abner Tasupi! 
Unlike Nick and Stephen, George is actually of Native American heritage. Abner raised Duran, and now confides in him that he will end the world tonight and then die!

Abner has opened up the circle, and the end of the world as enforced by plague-infested vampire bats begins!

The always incredible actor and amazing voice over artist David Warner is Phillip Payne,
The Vampire Hunter!

"Nightwing" is full of mesmerizing shots of the desert!

Some of the footage is so beautiful, it sometimes looks more like a National Geographic documentary than a hokey movie!

The bats first victims are this group of self-righteous Christians!

Now this is a real Batmobile!

Duran has a unique way of dealing with pressure, he eats a bunch of Datura root, also known as Jimson Weed, a very strong hallucinogenic, that can be very toxic, and will kill you if you eat too much! 

Besides seeing everything all wongo, Duran also sees and talks to Abner!

The killer bat footage is decent enough.....

......And this bat cave is pretty cool!

Duran is able to close the circle back up and burn up all the bats.....

....despite the fact that he's hallucinating like crazy!

For some reason, after watching "Nightwing" I had one of the wildest dreams I've had in a long time, and I'm pretty sure I was trying to save the world! 
I love the difference between the top poster and this one, it's almost like Heaven and Hell, just like the movie!

THE ALIEN / Bob Burns: Monster Kids Home Movies - 1952

Bob Burns is an interesting guy, he's also a world renown archivist and historian of props, costumes, and other paraphernalia from some of the greatest, and not that great, science fiction, fantasy, and horror motion pictures. He was a friend of Forry Ackerman and hung out with Paul Blaisdell, who can say that?

I just picked up a DVD called MONSTER KIDS HOME MOVIES with 30 shorts from the fifties to the eighties, pretty cool. Of course, the movie Eegah!! and I made in I think 1963, DR. HEKYLL AND MR. JYDE, was lost after I left it at my old girl friend's house!.. Figures!

Bob was 17 years old at the time, he seems to have had some help with the titles cards and locations. We start our story at Lerco, where, Dr. Ecks (pretty funny) is working in his lab...

Here's the doc, contemplating how to transport things from one place to another. He plays around with the vacuum tubes and gives it a try...

He'll start with a simple ladder, and, viola!.. I find that candy cane dealie interesting!

It's worth another try, this time though, he'll try to receive something!..

Well, what do you know?.. He transported a freakin' Alien!! The Alien shows the doc some of his tricks, like making letters appear on a chalkboard without touching it. Dr. Ecks decides to give him a make over so he can go outside to see the city...

The Alien looks like a real cool cat now (not really) and is ready to go out and play some fun tricks on the unsuspecting citizens!

After the Alien unlocks this forgetful dude's door and puts his car in the garage for him using hand gestures, the guy just wants to go back in his house and try to forget what just happened.

Later, the Alien figures out how to use a water fountain to get a drink... All by himself!

Then, he plays a trick on a mom by transporting her daughter from the swing to sitting at the top of some monkey bars!

Ho hum... Time for this one to transport home!..

And, before we know it, the Alien goes Poof and is gone forever... WTF!!

Also, all of Dr' Ecks; notes have been erased from his notebook and he has to start all over again!.. Tricky Alien! We're back tomorrow with more Dungeon Cargo, just for you!
