If ever there was a halcyon era for the B movie, it was the 1980s. Part of this boon was due, no doubt, to the advent of both home video and cable TV. Both avenues grew from available to a smaller part of the population (and in th...


“Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two

Look out your window I can see his light

If we can sparkle he may land tonight”

Greetings and Happy 2019!
