As the guy weighs somewhere between 310-330lbs, I had to laugh!

Surf Nazis Must Die - as much as I love Troma this film just leaves me cold. It's only 83 minutes but it really drags and seems fleshed out with stock footage of surfers and long establishing beach shots. Not hard to see why Roger Ebert walked out on it after half an hour. Not Troma's finest by a long shot.

Stagefright - solid Soavi slasher. There's shades of Argento in this which makes sense and some great and grisly kills.

Weirdly enough, I too have just finished STAGEFRIGHT. It's one of those movies I quite like to revisit, because for some reason I notice new aspects of it each time. I like how the theatrical setting lends a slight surrealistic artifice on some levels, and there are lots of elements which seem excessive or baroque, like the big owl head mask. For me, it's up there with 'Dellamorte...' - wish he'd carried on making movies after that one.

It's the theatricality of the scene with all the feathers floating around onstage near the end that I love so much.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - aka The Texas Chainsaw Metaphor 2. Yes Tobe, we get it; chainsaws = dicks and horror villains kill out of sexual frustration. It takes the grimy menace of the original and subverts it into a confused over-the-top self-parody. It's not a bad film as such, just so different in style and tone to its predecessor to make it a poor sequel. It does feature Dennis Hopper in a dual-wielding chainsaw scene which has to be worth something.

It's weird, STAGEFRIGHT is one of the rare decent VIPCO discs, good PQ and in the correct ratio. Probably how they bought it but still....

I always think of it in the same context as Evil Dead 2, played more for laughs than scares, who doesn't love Chop Tops amazing dialogue!
"Lick my plate you dog dick!" brilliant!
