Tales From The Roaring Shark

Wednesday, 2 August 2006

Right! What's all this then?
The time has come, oh my droogies, for you faithful friend and humble narrator to throw his hat into the ring, and attempt my own b-movie review blog. I have been a fan of several sites for mnay years, and fancied myself a writer for far longer than that.

I am primarily going to start with gems that are near and dear to my own little dark heart, and see where we go from there. You will never see "conventional Hollywood" films here, unless I feel very strongly about them. So, you will sometimes see "conventional Hollywood" films here. Two paragraphs into my first entry, and I've already made contradictory statements!

However, as a genre fan, I am also very cautious of reviewing "the classics". As I've said, I have been reading other b-movie sites for mnay years, and they have all covered Zombie, Suspiria, Night of the Living Dead, etc. many times, and done it with wit and style. Unless I feel that I can add new comments or perspectives, I digress from attempting them.

My current plan is to have 5-10 reviews written and posted before I go public. That may take some time, so after this introduction, be patient. I will try my best to make sure it was worth it!

And remember, you must be this tall to ride!

The rules
A few housekeeping issues up front, just to keep the air clear:

- If you have any questions about plot specifics for these films, or as I call them the "How come..."'s- don't ask me. I have no idea myself. Most of these films will probably be of Italian, Mexican, or Japanese descent, and based on the evidence contained within this site, those countries are clearly full of lunatics. The best explanation I have is the director or one of his best friends had an idea that would look absolutey killer on screen, and it's damn well gonna be there, come hell or high water.

- Naked chicks, rock and roll, and bodily fluids are essentials for inclusion here. If this prospect totally offends or repulses you, I congratulate you on your perseverance and determination on getting so lost in cyberspace that you ended up in this little outpost of shockingly bad taste and hedonism!

- I do not intend on goign into political or topical diatribes on here. I do hold fairly strong political and ethical beliefs on issues, but this is a site for entertainment. I have other sites for those issues. Drippy horror monsters have nothig to do with my views on abortion or gay marriage or eleventy million other issues.

- I shall TRY to refrain from cursing. In the real world, I talk like a sailor, but as a great entertainer once said "Never work blue, kid! You only go blue when ya got nuttin' else!"
