Life saving tip from the movie
(2010): When you roll your truck in the desert 80 miles from
anywhere, no cell reception, no one looking for you, you walk away
hoping to find a road and leave two injured friends behind that then
get eaten by coyotes and you leave your dead lover behind after he
kills himself because he can't go on and you make it back to your
wrecked vehicles and find your friend's breast implants, the warm
saline inside can be used as an IV to replenish your own depleted
Sad Keanu observation: The
Watcher (2000) serial killer Keanu stalks the pretty psychiatrist to
the "Flatiron" Building and in Johnny Mnemonic (1995) when Johnny is
supposedly in Newark NJ, they show the Flatiron Building in the
background and in his newest movie John Wick visits the Continental
Hotel (flat iron building). Probably because it is architecturally interesting.

For those who pay attention:
Dexter (our new favorite serial killer) uses Patrick Bateman as a
pseudonym for his purchase of M-99, the powerful sedative he uses to
subdue his victims. Patrick Bateman is, as we all know, The
American Psycho played by Christian Bale. That is so clever.
Another Dexter connection:
Two actors, Erik King and Mark Pelligrino, who were in the movie
National Treasure as FBI agents are costars on Dexter. King is
Sgt. Dokes who gets the creeps from Dexter and Pelligrino is Paul,
Dexter's girlfriend's ex-husband.
Another crime fighting connection:
Yvonne Craig (Batgirl) and Neil
Hamilton (Commissioner Gordon) appear together 10 years earlier in
an episode of Perry Mason.
Not movie related but entertaining
none the less (at least the apes thought so): Team Apeonaut
discovered this accidentally - take a ripe but still yellow banana
(ape related food stuff) drop some butter (NOT MARGARINE OR
BUTTER-LIKE SPREAD CRAP) on the peel. Wipe off said butter.
Within 5 minutes the pretty yellow banana peel has turned brown and
the seams have split open as has the banana within where the seams
touch it. And yes, it was a Dole banana.

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE THE SOUND OF THE SIRENS THAT GO OFF WHEN

ANOTHER FLASHPOINT COMPARISON: IN THE
MOVIE SPARTAN AN AGENT
IS SHOT IN THE HEAD FROM A LONG DISTANCE. A SINGLE SHOT THAT
SPRAYS HIS GREY MATTER AND VITAL HEAD FLUIDS OUT IN A MAGNIFICENT FAN LIKE SPRAY
PATTERN. WHEN NEXT HE IS SEEN LAYING PROSTATE IN THE GRASS, IT
IS SEVERELY RED AROUND HIS DEAD HEAD.
In the movie Darkest Hour (2011),

have missing or deformed
NOTABLE EARLY MOVIE APPEARANCE:
Ron Eldard of Mystery Alaska, Black Hawk Down, When Trumpets Fade and
the now cancelled Blind Justice, appears for a brief and shining
moment as a young police officer making a routine traffic stop.
The woman he stops is nervous and freaks out and shoots a humongous
and bloody hole in his head. Why, because news all over town
is that a cop is on a killing spree and this woman was taking her
survival into her own hands. Eldard's cop was not the killer
and he has become another victim of paranoia. The movie
starring our Hero Bruce Campbell is none other than MANIAC COP 1988.
Early appearance by Allstate Mayhem (Dean Winters) in 1999
Undercover Angel...too cute to be believed he ended up in OZ
Johnny Knoxville shows up in a bar
crowd scene in Coyote Ugly.
Jeff Goldblum has the dubious honor of
having had the credit in his first movie appearance as Freak #1 in
1974's Death Wish. He was one of the trio of attackers that
started the chain of events that led to a rise in vigilante-ism in
New York. At least he wasn't Freak #2!
THINGS THAT MAKE RUFUS CLYDE CHUCKLE:
1933 VERSION TARZAN THE FEARLESS STARRING BUSTER CRABBE (LATER FLASH
GORDON) --- THE OPENING SCENES HAVE OUR GUILELESS JUNGLE HERO
SITTING IN A TREE TOP WITH HIS FAITHFUL CHIMPANZEE WHEN ALL OF A
SUDDEN HE GRABS THE MONKEY AND SPANKS HIM. LET'S FACE IT, THAT'S
Night of the Lepus. This is
one awesome horror movie premise. Giant mutant killer bunnies
terrorize a sleepy Arizona town in 1972. The scenes of the
bunnies running rampant cracks up Team Apeonaut every time.
And it has one helluva cast! Lepus was one of Pater Apeonaut's
favorite Saturday creature features on Moona Lisa's show.
Wolf - Lone Wolf McQuade ~ Armadillo - Invasion USA ~ Tortoise -
China Syndrome ~ Armadillo - Dracula
DEATH SCENES TO BE PROUD OF:
Hardcore Henry: a titty bar john has a
silver serving platter thrust into his cranium
Banshee: Chayten is finally cornered by
Lucas in New Orleans. Lucas shoots out his side with a shotgun
blast. Lovely graphic. Then shoots off his face.
You're Next: Once it's known Felix is
not a victim but the instigator of the bloody mayhem he is killed
with a blender to the head. He has also killed his brother
with not less than 7 screwdrivers to the chest.
The Colony: the lead cannibal has the
top of his head cut off with a tanning knife after trying to kill
the hero. Pretty awesome.
You're Next: Running out of the house and into a thin metal
wire stretched across the door frame can certainly leave a mark.
And so can the 8 screwdrivers plunged into your chest. Having
the top of your head ground up in a heavy duty kitchen blender can
leave a mark too.
Any SYFY Channel movie that has people losing their heads in the
mouths of monsters.
Endangered Species: Peter Coyote is tossed
over a railing and falls a couple of stories onto a concrete floor.
Looking down from above his body is akimbo. When his cohorts
remove his carcass, brain matter is stuck to the floor. Cool.
1. Priest: lady priest snaps a guy on his
motorcycle up with her metal whip and slices him into big chunks of
Endgame: assassin in assassin school kills a
co-worker with the business end of a paper shredder. At first
he just shreds off the guy's nose, then he must think, screw it and
shreds the man to death.
Long Kiss Goodnight: Timothy falls from the
helicopter on to the top of the tanker truck holding the bomb, when
it blows so does he...as his head and face go in on direction the
rest of him goes in
several others simultaneously!
Final Destination 5: so many from which to chose, but the
flying wrench to the face was the bast.
Stiletto: Assassin Raina Mavias runs a tire iron through a
thug's head after he tries to kill her.
Carriers: carload of Christian ladies shoots back when the
gang tries to steal their gas.
Invasion USA: Chuck blows Rostov out the window using a LAWS
rocket...it's time to die
Final Destination 5: falling off the bridge and becoming impaled on
the tall mast of the sailing ship below in the river
Odessa File: Peter Miller kills SS assassin in Klaus Wenzer's
Heidelberg printing press.
Sammy J. getting eaten by the blue devil shark in Deep Blue Sea
Amy Irving making John Cassavettes blow up in The Fury.
Excellent effect for 1978
Omen 3-The Final Conflict....the President's press secretary rigs
his own office so the next person to open his door causes a shotgun
to take off the top of his head. Great special effect for 1981
The sheriff of Ogden Marsh is stabbed in the hand to the floor by a
Crazy. He then rips the knife out of the floor and plunges it while
it's still stuck through his hand into the neck of the Crazy thus
Billy Zane in Dead Calm takes a flare to the face when Sam Neill
wants him off his boat.
The Butcher (Eric Roberts) during a shootout in a bar blasts the
head off an opponent with a shot gun. OW!
Nasty warlord takes a knife in the guts and is nearly vivisected
The cook in Pandorum gets a hypodermic in the eye.
In First Blood 2 the NV officer in charge of POW camp is killed by
an explosive arrow enema delivered by Rambo.
In the movie Deceived John Hurd's character thinks he's going to get
away with murdering Goldie Hawn's character who is hiding in a
freight elevator. He opens the gate, takes a step forward and
whoopsie, first step is a doozie. She's sent the elevator down
and was standing on a small ledge.
IN THE OPENING SEQUENCE OF TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A.
A TERRORIST THREATENS TO BLOW HIMSELF UP. WILLIAM PETERSEN'S
COP TRIES TO TALK HIM DOWN. THE COP'S PARTNER HAS SNUCK UP
BEHIND THE TERRORIST AND PULLS HIM OFF THE ROOF AT THE SAME TIME THE
DETONATOR IS BEING ACTIVATED. THE TERRORIST BLOWS UP INTO
SUSHI SIZED BITS AS HE FALLS OFF THE BUILDING. GREAT EFFECT.
21. DAVID THEWLIS, PLAYING KEITH JENNINGS, THE MAN TRYING TO
CONVINCE ROBERT THORN HIS SON IS THE DEVIL INCARNATE, IS LEAVING THE
HIDING PLACE OF THE MAN WHO WANTS THORN TO SNUFF OUT THE SPAWN OF
SATAN. HE IS CARRYING THE CEREMONIAL KNIVES THAT ARE TO BE
USED. HE STOPS AND AS BAD LUCK, COINCIDENCE OR SATAN HIMSELF
WOULD HAVE IT A METAL BRACKET FALLS AND BREAKS THE SUPPORT HOLDING
UP A DECORATIVE GRATE. IT SWINGS DOWN WITH GREAT FORCE AND
DECAPITATES MR. JENNINGS. OOPS.
22. FUNNY MAN JACK BLACK (SCHOOL
OF ROCK) PLAYS A MACHINE FABRICATOR WHO TRIES TO EXTORT MORE MONEY
FROM BRUCE WILLIS'S JACKAL. THE JACKAL DOESN'T LIKE THAT AND
SUGGESTS THEY GO OUT TO TEST THE WEAPON (A GUN THAT LOOKS MORE
SUITED TO A NAVAL VESSEL) HE HAS JUST PURCHASED. STUPID!!!!
THE JACKAL POINTS IT AT BLACK AND TELLS HIM TO RUN. WITH AN
UNGAINLY GAIT AND WHILE LOOSING HIS BRITCHES BLACK'S CHARACTER RUNS
BACK AND FORTH THROUGH A MARSHY AREA THEN COMES TO REST NEAR A CAR.
THE JACKAL TELLS HIM TO HOLD UP A PACK OF CIGARETTES FOR HIM TO TAKE
AIM ON. HIS FIRST SHOT TAKES OFF HIS FOREARM. OWWIE!
JACKAL TELLS HIM TO STAND BY THE CAR WHILE HE STILL CAN AND LETS
LOOSE ON FULL AUTO. BLACK AND THE CAR DISAPPEAR IN A BLAZE OF
23. PAUL MCCRANE (EMIL FROM ROBOCOP) PARTICIPATES IN THE KILLING
OF OFFICER MURPHY. NEAR THE END OF THE MOVIE ROBOCOP SPILLS A
VAT OF TOXIC GOO ON EMIL THAT STARTS TO LIQUIFY HIM IMMEDIATELY.
THEN DURING A HIGH SPEED CHASE CLARENCE BODDICKER IN HIS 6000SUX
HITS HIM HEAD ON AND HE EXPLODES INTO A JUICY SPLOOSHY MESS ALL OVER
THE WINDSHIELD. THIS ONE CAN BE CATEGORIZED AS A GREAT HIT AND
BEST SCENE IN A MOVIE:
Flight of the Phoenix: after days in the desert with no hope
Richard Attenborough lets loose with the most believable laugh of
desperation ever uttered on the silver screen. It is sad,
creepy, scary and totally realistic sounding as he goes off the deep
Watchmen: Rorschach is in his prison cell and manages to grab the
hands of a hefty henchman and tie them inside the cell. What
did that get you? Your hands. What did that do for you?
By my count it's 1-0. The baddie tells another henchman to saw
through hefty's arms to get him out of the way. After doing so
he also saws through the lock and upon bursting in is thrown head
first into the toilet bowl and then electrocuted. That's 2-0.
Dean Martin in The Silencers is awakened by
his remote bed that moves him silently across the bedroom floor,
raises up and lets him slide into his large bubble bath with his
secretary, Lovey Cravesit. The 60's finest cheese.
Yojimbo: The inimitable Toshiro
Mifune is strutting through town after the gangs have sliced each
other up and a scraggly little dog runs passed him with a severed
human hand in his mouth...priceless
A SCENE THAT MAKES THE MONKEYS LAUGH EACH AND EVERY TIME THEY
SEE IT COMES IN TURNER IN HOOCH WHEN OUR HERO
MEETS HOOCH FOR THE FIRST TIME. HOOCH BURSTS OUT OF HIS HOME
AND CHARGES DOWN THE DOCK TOWARD SCOTT, THE SLOW MOTION PHOTOGRAPHY
OF THIS WONDERFUL DOG IS WET YOUR PANTS FUNNY AS HIS LIPS AND EARS
FLAP IN THE BREEZE, HIS EYES GO WIDE AND HIS FUNNY VAMPIRE TEETH
GNASH AND FLASH WHILE HIS TONGUE FLOPS AND SLOPS DROOLEY DROOL ALL
OVER THE PLACE.
SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING IN
THE CLUB POOL IN THE MOVIE CADDY SHACK. THIS SILLINESS LEADS UP TO THE
BABY RUTH DOODIE INCIDENT.
PRINTING COUNTERFEIT MONEY USING VAN SON INKS IN TO LIVE AND DIE IN

of the truck cab into the front of a moving bus. She goes

Just when you think it's safe to cross the road the Green Goblin big
rig comes out of nowhere and flattens your ass.
Magnum Force: Dirty Harry plays
chicken with a bad motorcycle cop on the deck of an aircraft
carrier. He goes splat.
Death Sentence: after the
murdering a young man in a gas station the bad guy runs into the
street yelling after his homies because they left him behind.
He is slammed into by a speeding car and tossed head over heels into
the street. Now that left a mark!!
ex-husband is unceremoniously hit by a fast moving bus conveniently
getting him out of the way.
11:14: A girl is walking in the middle of the street at
night oblivious to everything around her. A van comes speeding
up and blam, she goes flying several feet and lands with a splat.
Day After Tomorrow: News reporter reporting on the
really bad weather gets hit by a really big hunk of flying debris.
That one had to hurt.
Hidden: Alien invaded
driver of a beautiful Ferrari
is fleeing the police at 90 plus miles an hour. He runs up
on to the sidewalk and takes out an old guy in a wheelchair.
Man, did that guy go flying. Looked like Death Race 2000!
Who many points is a guy in a wheelchair?
Devil's Advocate: Justice agent tries to tell Kevin all
the bad things that are going on in the Devil's company of lawyers.

also be considered a slice and dice.) Many thanks to QOTOTV
for this entry.

like Jim Caveziel's dungeon cell in
The Count Of Monte Cristo.
Transporter 2 and Out of Sight:
the exterior shots of an office building with
a brass doorway and handrails going down the stairs are used by the
psycho gun toting bitch in T-2 and George Clooney in OoS.
Nowhere Man and The X-Files Movie:
The heroes of both stories come to a
crossroads literally and figuratively in the middle of a long
stretch of highway out in the middle of nowhere. (some of the
X-Files production people worked on the tv series Nowhere
Man...coincidence or conspiracy)
The Sweeper 1998: C. Thomas Howell as a vigilante cop
and his partner go to the Lakewood Mall for a pivotal, if cheesey
looking fight scene.

Diane's characters meet for the first time is not just some stunt
park, it is the real dog park in none

George's 50's Diner at the corner of San Antonio and Atlantic
in Long Beach, CA has
been used in several movies...notably Corina
Corina and Cinderella Story
Something new being filmed there will have it's name as Milt's
Diner and it will pose a Chinese take out place. Most recently
the diner shows up in the opening scenes of
Zodiac (2007) as Mr. Ed's. An
ill-fated couple drive past it because the parking lot is full.
Thin Man Goes Home 1944:
When she gets a wild idea Nora
Charles tails an associate of Nick's on a long walk through the
city. He stops, she stops, he stops, she stops. They
come to the train station. On the wall beside Nora is a poster
advertising a cuppa joe with a soldier smiling to beat the band.
This is the very same G I in the "Hey Hollywood, sit down and pour
yourselves a nice cup of shut the fuck up" that buzzed around the
internet when certain actors started mouthing off about the state of
CIA II: Target Alexa and
The Challenge: The office
building used for the headquarters of the CIA and the Yakuza are one
and the same. I think the guards were even
in the same positions.
The Ring Two 2005: The big yellow house that Max the
reporter lives in looks an awful lot like the big yellow house used in
Millennium where Frank Black and his family lived.
And the common
room at the looney bin looks an awful lot like the common room at
the looney bin in Grosse Pointe Blank and
Without a Trace.
The sets used for Have Gun Will Travel in 1958 were
almost unchanged since they were used in the '30s for
Heck, everything from that time period looks the same. Thank
god for Lone Pine!!!
The exterior shot of Anne Shirley's apartment in
Murder My Sweet (1945), is
the same one used in The Last Boy Scout

SPEAKING OF PUTRIFACTION:
STATE OF FOUL DECAY OR DECOMPOSITION. LIQUIFACTION; TO MAKE OR
A great scene of putrifaction lies in a bathtub in a little seen,
but excellent movie called NARC. The police aren't really sure
what's in the tub full of goo until they find an arm bone.
That's one informant down the drain!
The movie SEVEN has some great putrifaction scenes also. They
aren't called the seven deadly sins for nothing!
Who knew Jerry Mathers was an actor before he was the
"Beav"? Shadow on the Window 1957 Son of a cop who
witnesses his mother's kidnapping.
Who knew that the Father of all things Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry
wrote 3 of the best episodes of the western series Paladin?
1957 The Hanging Cross starring a pre-Rifleman Johnny Crawford,
1957 Helen of Abajinian,
1958 Ella West. All 3 episodes were
poignant, witty and moral. Foundations upon which to build a
sci-fi empire! Granted, CBS thought he would write a western
series for them, but hey! Long live Capt. Kirk.
During Royal Wedding, Fred Astaire dances to a song about Haiti.
His moves are suspiciously the inspiration for Jean Claude Van
Damme's moves in Kickboxer. Pretty damn funny

Face Off: In this offshore prison the inmates are fitted
with magnetic boots. When trouble breaks out the switch is
flipped and the inmates wobble like weebles but they can't fall
down, or beat each other up or escape.
Harsh Realm: The Skull Bug. A nifty little device
shot into the neck via an inoculation type gun. When a person
doesn't follow the rules, the Skull Bug starts drilling through the
brain until it comes out through the front
of the skull thus
rendering the prisoner lobotomized.
GREAT USE OF A CREDIT CARD:
starring Burt Reynolds. Fairly pointless movie, but Burt puts the
moves on some bad guys and slits their throats with his Master

is used on some Russian baddies, this time using

effectively. But the good yet uncaring doctor finally at the end
uses the SAW to cut through his own ankle to free himself of the leg iron that holds him prisoner of the mad man Jigsaw.
Great little sci fi flick that
out-Matrixes the Matrix. Pre-Batman Christian Bale looks great
in black, can handle a sword (or gun) with phenomenal skill and has
the authority to kick major ass in this Brave New World. Near the
end of the movie he quickly dispatches the de facto leader's
henchmen with his katana. The asshole who'd been vying for his
job takes up a sword in order to do battle. In one deft deadly

and his face just slides right off.

Wrong Turn: 20-somethings on a road trip make a "wrong
turn" and end up in the Virginia woods that are home to dare
I say it...cannibals! There is a lot of slicing going on, but the slice deserving of
mention here is during the daring escape by the 20-somethings, one
of the girls is hiding in a tree. Next thing you know a big
axe flies out of the branches and whacks her in the mouth sending
her body from the chin down falling to the ground. The top
of her head just sits on the axe blade.
Johnny Mnemonic: Udo Kier's character is sliced into
thirds at the shoulder by a laser whip.
13 Ghosts starring Tony
"Monk" Shaloub. A lawyer is walking down a scary,
creepy hallway and abruptly stops in his tracks. The effect
is so good because you don't see any glare from the glass doors that
have closed and sliced the lawyer in half. Not short
ways like a samurai sword would do, but width wise. As he
slumps to the floor from the front, we see his back half stuck to
the sheet of glass with his organs, brains and muscles oozing as
his eyeballs and mouth pulse their last beats. A character
asks later, Hey did the lawyer split?
Ghost Ship offers up some great slice and dice. A not entirely bad movie available on DVD.
We have cruise ship passengers dancing to a lyrical
Italian melody when "evil lurking" releases a cable that sproings across the dance floor about waist high and slices
people apart at various levels of their anatomy. Arms and
legs akimbo, torsos wiggling, arms trying to grab legs and hold them
together and best of all, the captain's head cleanly sliced at the
mouth so that the top of his head slides neatly off his bottom
Thanks to Queenotype for reminding us of this unkindest cut of
all: Final Destination 2. Heroes crash into a field,
as they evaluate who's hurt and who needs to be saved, tension
mounts as we think the driver of the car will be the next victim
of horrible death. As it turns out it is the cute guy we
think might actually survive this festival of death. A chain
of events conspires to release at high velocity strands of a
barbed wire fence that oh so neatly slice through his body like "butta" at the chest and waist leaving him dazed
for a second until his parts start to fall to the ground.
The pieces of arms that fall are so lifelike, one thinks, how'd
they do that?! Then you watch the bonus features on the DVD
and find out!

Nicholson's nostril! Eeeww!
Underworld uber-Vamp Selena picks up her master's discarded
sword and does a quick fly by before he can harm her new
boyfriend. Her master turns on her and looks as if he is
ready to tear her a new one when realization strikes him that
something is wrong. He looks puzzled for a second, then the
right side of his head slides off at an angle and falls to the
ground. Even for an elder vampire, that had to suck!!!!
Resident Evil, the movie that made no apologies for being based on
a video game and made a fortune doing so. The bulk of the
security team sent into the Umbrella Corps Hive to find out what
went horribly wrong with an experiment in bio technology is
walking down a well lit corridor toward the door to the main
computer's inner sanctum. Pretty lights come on and start
traveling the length of the corridor. Fingers are sliced
off, a head is neatly severed, one guy tries to jump over the
light but it moves with him and neatly cuts him in half. But
the best part is the leader of the group thinks he can leap and
dodge the lights when they form a grid and neatly cube him like
chunky dog food. His one blinking eye registers, what,
Mindhunters, the movie about FBI
profiler wannabees, has a scene where everyone has been drugged and
