IN DEFENCE OF: Hardware (1990)
Visually slick and heavily thematic killer robot flick from notable director Richard Stanley that takes considerable influence from the best science fiction, horror and action of the previous decade-and-a-bit. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Magic (1978)
What happens when some of the greatest filmmakers in the world unite, not to make a heady drama or lavish epic... but a killer puppet movie? Magic. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Manhunter (1986)
For my fortieth and final episode I'm covering one of my favourite films of all time. Thank you for your support over the last 18 months! TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Full Contact (1992)
A lesser known heroic bloodshed movie that sacrifices the weighty brotherhood themes to indulge in the more exploitative side of action.

IN DEFENCE OF: Nemesis (1992)
Olivier Gruner, Belgium's third most popular martial arts star, sweats his way through this cyborg actioner that actually saw a theatrical release as well as three sequels.

IN DEFENCE OF: Hideous! (1997)
Ever watch Total Recall and wonder what else Benny appeared in? The answer is: Hideous, a 1997 comedy horror about mutated babies. This time he really does have four kids to feed.

IN DEFENCE OF: Tales From The Darkside: The Movie (1990)
This TV adaptation from the twilight of the anthology movie's popularity is remarkably well made by a cast and crew of serious talent. More importantly: it's got a gargoyle. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Batman: The Movie (1966)
Holy obvious reference, Batman! Everyone knows the wild and wacky 1960s Batman TV but the movie it spawned is lesser known despite being the source of the most famous West & Ward Bat-moments. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Dolls (1987)
Be nice, or old people will turn you into dolls. That's the lesson in this minor horror classic from the filmmakers behind Re-Animator and From Beyond.

IN DEFENCE OF: Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity (1987)
TL;DW: boobs and robots. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Contamination (1980)
How do you like your eggs? Scrambled? Poached? How about exploding with green acid, causing your torso to violently eject your insides? This Italian knock-off delivers the latter in big gooey spades.

IN DEFENCE OF: Mission of Justice (1992)
VHS hero Jeff Wincott - remember the name - takes down a shady vigilante-dojo from the inside. Features the sort-of-famous-but-not-really Gauntlet scene!

IN DEFENCE OF: Double Jeopardy/Olivia/Prozzie (1983)
Anyone familiar with Ulli Lommel likely knows him as a purveyor of shot-on-video serial killer trash. His early work couldn't be more different, including this wonderful Transatlantic oddity. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: 2019 After the Fall of New York (1983)
The channel is one year old! I'm celebrating with Sopkiw & co's Escape From New York knock-off that isn't really an Escape From New York knock-off. Please let me know the origins of radioactive mutant people! TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Dr Alien (1989)
An utterly charming budget sci-fi teen sex comedy from prolific director David DeCoteau.

IN DEFENCE OF: Road House (1989)
Road House is silly over-the-top fun, but only if you want it to be. Gaze into the Road House, and the Road House gazes into you. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: House III: The Horror Show (1989)
House III is about an undead child murderer who targets a young family. That would be fine, except the first two House movies are basically spooky haunted house pictures for kids.

IN DEFENCE OF: Spasmo (1974)
I mean, it's a film called "Spasmo". It has to be good. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Death Ring (1992)
Chuck Norris. Patrick Swayze. Steve McQueen. None of them are here, but they sent their children and siblings to star in this 1992 by-the-book DTV action entry.

IN DEFENCE OF: Hell Comes To Frogtown (1987)
Many people have heard the title of this post-apocalyptic comedy, but less have actually seen it. Here's why it's worth your time.

IN DEFENCE OF: The House on the Edge of the Park (1980)
Vicious, mean-spirited video nasty in the mold of Last House on the Left with far more to say than the BBFC's banned list would suggest. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: The Hard Way (1991)
The only people who have seen The Hard Way that I know are the ones I've shown it to. That's too bad because it's a fantastic action comedy deserving of far greater attention. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Bad Channels (1992)
A quirky early-90s love letter to cheap sci-fi and MTV. Not a love letter to good acting or cohesive plots though. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT
Views: 166 IN DEFENCE OF:
IN DEFENCE OF: Deadly Bet (1992)
An early PM Entertainment love letter to Vegas and all of its temptations. More importantly: Jeff Wincott AND Gary Daniels! I used a different audio setup for this video. If it sucks, lemme know. An oral history of PM Entertainment: https://goo.gl/uzRAAL TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992)
Does the third contribution to the sadomasochist-friendly franchise warrant being lumped in with the lacklustre later sequels? Or does it hearken back to the heralded earlier entries? TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Blast (1997)
Blast is not a particularly good film. So why do I like it? It has more to do with a random set of events from my past than any of Blast's redeeming features.

IN DEFENCE OF: Blastfighter (1984)
How an obscure Italian ripoff made me fall in love with movies again.

IN DEFENCE OF: Child's Play 2 (1990)
Probably the most famous movie I've reviewed so far, the first Chucky sequel is one of my favourite films of all time. No, I'm not joking.

IN DEFENCE OF: Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985)
Ooh-ooh baby, ooh baby! Paramount's attempt to take the iconic slasher series in a new direction wasn't well received at the time and is disliked by Jason devotees to this day, but don't discount the film entirely. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot (1992)
You'll only ever hear about how bad this is. Let me tell you why I own it on DVD and have watched it plenty of times.

IN DEFENCE OF: Riot (1996)
Gary Daniels, lord of weird accents and kicker of all things, returns in this not-a-sequel to Rage from DTV maestros PM Entertainment.

IN DEFENCE OF: Rage (1995)
A superhuman Gary Daniels goes on the run in LA in this 90s action movie from genre factory PM Entertainment.

IN DEFENCE OF: Showdown In Little Tokyo (1991)
Dolph Lundgren and the late Brandon Lee star in this buddy cop action entry that may actually be dripping with subtext.

IN DEFENCE OF: Last Man Standing (1995)
What happens when PM Entertainment tone down the bizarre stuff while keeping the action excessive? Possibly their best movie. Number of times I mention the Bruce Willis movie of the same name from around the same time during this review: 0.

IN DEFENCE OF: Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol (1987)
Simple humour, one-note characters and a brisk pace are the hallmarks of the Police Academy franchise. This fourth entry is the last time the formula works to its strengths before franchise regulars jump ship. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT

IN DEFENCE OF: Halloween 4 (1988)
I had to do a Halloween episode at this time of year, right? This beefed-up sequel takes its cues from the John Carpenter original and adds a portion of action, guns and explosions.

IN DEFENCE OF: Phantasm II (1988)
The slickest entry in the Phantasm franchise, Phantasm II's imagination sticks out from its peers despite being released in the heyday of creativity-fuelled no-holds-barred horror.

IN DEFENCE OF: Expect No Mercy (1995)
Combining virtual reality with martial arts is a gateway to the hitman industry. That's the issue dealt with by Mr Tae Bo Billy Blanks and charisma vacuum Jalal Merhi in this 90s DTV fight flick. TWITTER: https://twitter.com/InDefenceOfYT
