The Exorcist III (also known as The Exorcist III: Legion) is a 1990 American psychological horror film written and directed by William Peter Blatty.

It is the third installment in the Exorcist series, an adaptation of Blatty's Exorcist novel Legion (1983), and the final installment in Blatty's "Faith Trilogy". It stars George C. Scott, Brad Dourif, Ed Flanders, Jason Miller, Scott Wilson and Nicol Williamson.

The Exorcist III is set 17 years after the original film, ignoring the events of Exorcist II: The Heretic. The year that Karras died is listed as 1975 on his headstone, placing the events of the original movie in 1975.

It follows a character from the first film, Lieutenant William F. Kinderman, who investigates a series of demonic murders in Georgetown that have the hallmarks of the Gemini, a deceased serial killer.

Blatty based aspects of the Gemini Killer on the real-life Zodiac Killer, one of several serial killers who enjoyed the original Exorcist.

Want bonkers cameos? There’s C. Everett Koop as Himself, Larry King, Patrick Ewing, Fabio, as well as an early performances by Samuel L. Jackson, Ken Lerner, Grand L. Bush, and Scott Wilson.

The film became a focal point of the trial of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Detectives testified that Dahmer claimed to identify with the Gemini Killer and would play the film for some of his victims before killing them.

Dahmer's final attempted victim, Tracy Edwards, testified that Dahmer would rock back and forth while chanting at various times and that he especially enjoyed a sequence with a possessed Karras.

Dammer went so far as to purchase yellow contact lenses to more resemble Miller, as well as to emulate another film character he admired, Emperor Palpatine from Return of the Jedi.

There’s also, a director’s cut, which is considered the preferred version by the film’s director, William Peter Blatty, and as such beaded on his novel, “Legion”.

It’s also considered to be the Citizen Kane of horror, due to it’s reputation perceiving itself. It had mixed reviews on it’s release, and sort of possessed it’s audiences.

The film, was made for $11 million, and earned $44 million.

Troll 2 (1990)

Notoriously known, as “The Best Worst Film Ever”, which was also the name of the documentary film about the making and it’s cult following, afterwards.

A young child is terrified to discover that a planned family trip is to be haunted by vile plant-eating monsters out of his worst nightmare.

His attempt to save his beloved family is assisted by the spectre of his deceased grandfather. Also, there are NO trolls in this movie, only goblins.

Released direct to video, it may have been a critical trolled movie, but people love it for it’s badness.

It’s also despite the title, not a sequel to Troll.

American distributors marketed Troll 2 as a sequel to 1986's Troll, but the two films have zero connection.

Troll 2 is an Italian-American horror film directed by Claudio Fragasso (using the pseudonym Drake Floyd) about a vacationing family who discovers that the denizens of the town they’re visiting are goblins in disguise who want to transform people into plants to be eaten.

Stick a pin in the asinine plot synopsis for a moment—did you notice that the movie features goblins and not a single troll? Troll 2 amassed a cult following for its camp value and unapologetic awfulness, but is still considered one of the worst films ever made. “Oh my God,” indeed.

A couple from California, meets Leatherface and his family of cannibals, can they survive the chainsaw and the massacre that follows? Along the way, a survivalist comes across their way. Is he doomed as well?

Among others, one of New Line's first choices for director was Peter Jackson, also approached were Iohn McNaughton and Tom Savini.

Viggo Mortensen, had one of his earliest performances in this film, and became a cult film years later.

The film was distributed by New Line Cinema, who bought the rights to the series from The Cannon Group after producing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Initially, this film was given an X-rating by the Motion Picture Association of America, which limited the studio's release possibilities.

After the studio made cuts, it was re-rated R, and New Line released it on January 12, 1990. It was refused classification in the UK upon its initial release. It has since been released on home video in both unrated and rated versions, and a cut version was accepted with an 18 certificate in the UK.

The film was both a critical and commercial failure, grossing $5.7 million at the US box office, making it the poorest performing film in the series at the time, until the release of its sequel Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation in 1995.

Shooting took place in Valencia, California at the end of July 1989. The director intended to film on 16 mm in Texas, but set construction had already begun in California prior to Jeff Burr signing on.

Tom Savini and Peter Jackson were considered to direct before Jonathan Betuel was eventually hired as director.

Peter Jackson, would later go to direct The Lord of the Rings, with Viggo Mortensen as Aragon, for New Line Cinema.

Betuel departed the project for unstated reasons leading to the studio hiring Stepfather II filmmaker Jeff Burr to direct the film.

Songs in the film’s soundtrack, were performed by Hurricane, Laaz Rockit, and Death Angel.

With make up effects, by Greg Nicotero, Howard Berger, and Robert Kurtzman.

Mister Frost (1990)

Mister Frost is a 1990 supernatural thriller film starring Jeff Goldblum and directed by French filmmaker Philippe Setbon, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Derry Hall, Brad Lynch and Louise Vincent.

It co-starred Kathy Baker and Alan Bates.

Mr. Frost is arrested and committed for murder after he is apprehended burying his victims in the garden. However, even while under psychiatric care and tight hospital security, it becomes obvious that Mr. Frost is not all he seems to be, but he is dangerous nonetheless.

While not a hit, Mister Frost was generally reviewed well. The film occasionally appears on television.

Roger Ebert said of the film, “Mr. Frost" is silly, but not silly enough. The problem with movies like this is that they've forgotten how to be absurd.”

He also noted:

“We've been reading a lot about the new Europe, where currencies and passports will merge, and "Mr. Frost" seems to be the first new European movie. Frost's estate is clearly French, the local police inspector (Bates) is British, other officials seem French or Italian, the psychiatrist is American, and people keep saying there is "absolutely no clue" to Goldblum's origins - as if he didn't speak with an American accent.”

A boy who grew up in a native Sicilian Village returns home as a famous director after receiving news about the death of an old friend.

Told in a flashback, Salvatore reminiscences about his childhood and his relationship with Alfredo, a projectionist at Cinema Paradiso.

Under the fatherly influence of Alfredo, Salvatore fell in love with film making, with the duo spending many hours discussing about films and Alfredo painstakingly teaching Salvatore the skills that became a stepping stone for the young boy into the world of film making.

The film brings the audience through the changes in cinema and the dying trade of traditional film making, editing and screening. It also explores a young boy's dream of leaving his little town to foray into the world outside.

The film was a critical success, and is considered to be one of the greatest films, from the decade, if not ever.

The movie, was made for $5 million and made $36 million internationally.

Four teens summon forth a diminuitive, demonic minion from The Other Side to do their bidding and grant their wishes, but of course, they must all ultimately pay the price.

The audience paid the ultimate price, of watching a bad film, and critics sent the film straight to Hell.

Despite, the graphic nature of the film, and Rated R, no one dies in the film.

Gate II, also featured earlier performances by Simon Reynolds, and Oamela Adlon, and featured effects work by Pamela Adams, Randall Wallace Cook, and Sean Armstrong.

Was originally set to be released by New Century Entertainment which had released the original Gate, but was later sold to Vision International after New Century closed its doors.

The soundtrack featured songs by Tim Baker & The Torontones, Bill Cowsill. and The Wingers.

The Gate II opened in 350 theaters in the US on February 28, 1992, and grossed $2 million.

Long ago in a land with an ailing king, there was a pair of boys who looked exactly alike, a pauper called Mickey and the other, the Crown Prince.

Mickey dreamed of plenty and an easy life as Royalty and the Prince dreamed of the freedom as a subject. Happenstance throws them together and their mutual resemblence inspires the pair to switch identities to see how the other lives.

To their surprise, Mickey learns of the duties and responsibilties of royalty while the Prince learns to his horror that the Royal Captain of the Guard has taken advantage of the existing power vacuum to inflict brutal tyranny on the subjects.

Now the Prince must react to this evil, unaware that the Captain knows about the identity swap and is using it to his own advantage while dominating Mickey who play the Heir to the Throne.

The Prince and the Pauper is a 1990 American animated comedy action-adventure featurette produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and directed by George Scribner.

Joey works with Rosalie in their pizza parlor. She is convinced that he works all of the time for them and her world dissolves when she finds that he has been fooling around for years.

Being Catholic, divorce is out of the question, so she and her mother and her best friend decide to kill him. Hopelessly incompetent as killers, they hire incompetent professionals as they beat, poison, and shoot Joey who remains oblivious to their attempts.

The film also featured performances by Keanu Reeves, River Phoenix (both would later be in the film, My Private Idaho), and early performances by Shiri Appleby and Jon Kasdan.

Loosely based on the true story of Frances Toto and her four unsuccessful attempts to kill her cheating husband, Anthony Toto, in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1984.

Anthony spent four days in bed after being drugged and shot by Frances and her friends; who spent four years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted murder. The Turner Classic Movies website states that this movie's "story was inspired by events in the lives of Anthony and Frances Toto and Barry Giacobe."

It’s totally a comedic moment, if there ever was one.

Ironically, as of 2023 they are still married.

Critics didn’t actually love the film, while audiences just barely liked the film, with the film earning $16.2 million in pizza dough.

Joe versus the Volcano is a fable which opens with somewhat surrealistic scenes of the dehumanization of Joe Bank's job and work environment (at a company whose product rather literally screws people) with imagery that seems to have been inspired by the classic film Metropolis.

Joe is diagnosed with an incurable disease, quits his dehumanizing job, and accepts an offer to briefly "live like a king, die like a man" - but to fulfill his agreement he must willingly jump into a live volcano on the island of Waponi Woo in order to appease the volcano god.

En route to the island, Joe meets a series of interesting characters in NYC and LA, then boards a yacht, captained by Patricia Graynamore. During the voyage Joe and Patricia survive disaster, fall in love, and finally arrive at the island where they face their destiny

The film is a prime example, of “magical realism”, a type of movie, that combines elements of day to day life, and merges it with fantasy.

The movie got mixed reviews, and did marginally ok in theatres.

A cover of the song, “Sixteen Tons” by Eric Burdon

Joe Versus the Volcano, also featured an early performance by Nathan Lane.

The film, was made for $25 million, and made $39.4 million.

Also known as “I Come in Peace”, Jack Caine is a Houston vice cop who's forgotten the rule book. His self-appointed mission is to stop the drugs trade and the number one supplier Victor Manning. Whilst involved in an undercover operation to entrap Victor Manning, his partner gets killed, and a sinister newcomer enters the scene.

Along with F.B.I. agent Lawrence Smith, the two investigate a spate of mysterious deaths; normal non-junkies dying of massive heroin overdoses and bearing the same horrific puncture marks on the forehead.

This, coupled with Caine's own evidence, indicates an alien force is present on the streets of Houston, killing and gathering stocks of a rare drug found only in the brain.

Caine is used to fighting the toughest of criminals, but up to now they've all been human.

The original title is Dark Angel; the film was planned to be released under the same title in the United States (which had the latest release) but was renamed by Triumph Releasing to I Come in Peace because of two other movies entitled The Dark Angel (from 1925 and 1935), according to executive producer Mark Damon (in a 1993 interview with UK magazine Impact), who preferred the original title.

Independently made, none of the Hollywood majors were interested in picking this film up for distribution so it was eventually sold to independent distributors around the world.

It became a surprise hit in many countries and in the UK it became EIV's biggest selling VHS rental (at the time) after a small but successful theatrical release.

The film featured “Touch Me Tonight”, by Shooting Star.

As well as songs by XYZ, Bardeux, and others.

Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue is a 1990 American animated television propaganda film starring many characters from several animated television series at the time of its release.

Financed by McDonald's, Ronald McDonald Children's Charities, it was originally simulcast for a limited time on April 21, 1990, on all four major American television networks (by supporting their Saturday morning characters): ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox[a], and most independent stations, as well as various cable networks.

McDonald's released a VHS home video edition of the special distributed by Buena Vista Home Video, which opened with an introduction from President George H. W. Bush, First Lady Barbara Bush and their dog, Millie.

All your favourite cartoon characters, from Alf, to Garfield to the Chipmunks come to the rescue of Michael, a teenager who is a functional drug addict.

Can they come to his rescue? Will you feel like you are weirded out by the whole short film? Possibly, yes.

For a long time, it was reported that the special was never rerun because Garfield was used without the permission of his creator, Jim Davis. Garfield and Friends writer Mark Evanier stated that Davis approved of Garfield's appearance, but the special could only be shown for a limited time as part of the agreement.

Some of the cartoon characters are explained as being in "the real world" by being represented as toys that magically come to life, or as characters on a comic book page, but several others simply show up in their cartoon form with no explanation whatsoever.

Which more or less, sums up this truly bonkers, video.

You won’t likely ever see this baby, on any physical media outside of VHS, but somewhere on the Net, you could relieve the trippy experience, of seeing again. Or for the first time!

Featuring the voice of George C. Scott? As well as a early performance by Jason Marsden.

The musical number "Wonderful Ways to Say No" was written by Academy Award-winning composer, Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman, who also wrote the songs for Walt Disney Animation Studios' The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.

The production has been considered a time capsule of animation history during the time period of the US war on drugs, and has been ridiculed as “propaganda”[10] and “preachy”.

Henry, however, might be badly affected by his partners' success, but will he consider stooping low enough to bring about the downfall of Jimmy and Tommy?

Based on the classic book, by William Golding and later made into a movie in 1963, a group of American military school cadets end up on a deserted island, after a plane crash.

Left to their own devices, they become savages, with one group lead by Jack who wants to have a “society free from any rules”, and Ralph, the more pragmatic of the two wants a more civilized law based society.

Things go really horrible from there. Critics praised the performances, but felt that the film strayed too far away, from the source material.

Regardless, the film bombed anyway. It also marked the film debuts of Balthazar Getty and James Badge Dale.

Interesting fact, screenplay is credited to Sara Schiff. Schiff is the pseudonym of author Jay Presson Allen.

The screenplay was her last film work before her death in 2006. She was reportedly dissatisfied by the final product and had her name removed, hence the attribution to a pseudonym.

The film, was made for $9 million, and escaped with $13 million, and was filmed in Kaua'i, Hawaii, and Port Antonio, Jamaica.

He’s lewd, crude, obnoxious, bad to the bone, offensive, and a babe magnet. And the world’s greatest rock n’ roll detective.

In fact, Baby... He’s the only one! He’s Ford Fairlane!

So, dial 1-800-UNBELIEVABLE! Oooh!

In all fairness, it’s an actual mileage may kind of vary,

Ford "Mr. Rock n' Roll Detective" Fairlane is experiencing problems, and it's not with the opposite sex. One of them is that all the rock stars pay him with drum sticks, koala bears, food processors and bicycle shorts.

Another one of them is that all his employers that want him to find a girl named Zuzu Petals before she get killed. Why didn't he become a fisherman's detective instead?

Critics found it to be unbelievably bad, with Roger Ebert giving the film 1 star out of a possible 4, and called the film "loud, ugly and mean-spirited" but he also suggested that Clay had the confidence and screen presence for a successful acting career if he could move beyond his shtick.
