ALIEN ZONE - Stan V. Worth - "Last Stop On 13th Street" (1978)

In the 50's and 60's, a lot of times films were so bad, they were good, you understand the concept, but something happened in the 70's, and it wasn't just in the movies, what used to be bad, but fun and kitsch was now just bad, without any real redeeming qualities at all. That brings us to tonight's film, a terrible, cheap ass piece of crap that I don't even know why I'm taking the time to write about, except that it's pretty much the epitome of what happened, and how we've ended up where we are right now!!

The soundtrack music was composed by Stan Worth, and the title song had lyrics written by Ayn Robbins, and was sung by Steve March! I guess it did have one redeeming quality, the alternative name for the DVD release was "Last Stop On 13th Street!"

What a concept, you could listen to the music on your transistor radio in the kitchen or the bathroom! Amazing!! What will they think of next?? What's the coolest is, look how much our way of listening to music has changed, but toilets are exactly the same as they were 40 years ago!!!


Happy New Year!!!


I do think they got the music wrong, 1978, they should have used music from some band that sounded like a combination of "Cherry Vanilla", "Wizzard", and "Sweet!"

This is in actuality a retitling of a anthology horror flick called HOUSE OF DEATH. One of the stories details how a stuck-up businessman is turned into a homeless bum after being subjected to the tortures of a haunted house.

I worked at a drive-in in the late 60s/early 70s. yeah, you're right, it's like everybody in Hollywood forgot how to make a movie for five or ten years.
