NIGHTSHIFT COLLECTION : DISCIPLES OF THE CROW AND THE NIGHT WAITER
SUBMITTED BY ZACH CARTER

STEPHEN KINGS NIGHTSHIFT COLLECTION : DISCIPLES OF THE CROW AND THE NIGHT WAITER - SUBMITTED BY ZACH CARTER, VHS COVERS

STEPHEN KINGS NIGHTSHIFT COLLECTION : DISCIPLES OF THE CROW AND THE NIGHT WAITER : WRITTEN BY ZACH CARTER

This tape has two short films, Disciples of the Crow which is based on the same Stephen King story as Children of the Corn, and The Night Waiter, which apparently has no connection to King other than it's setting in a creepy hotel.  Neither are outrageously bad, but you probably won't feel the urge to re-watch them anytime soon. 

Disciples of the Crow is very similar to the feature film that was made only a year later, so besides a short prologue featuring the children actually killing their parents it basically feels like an excerpt from Children of the Corn.  There are some effectively creepy scenes, although the actors playing the adult couple are insanely annoying.  Nothing is really explained, other than that the children have killed the adults and they practice some sort of strange occult religion, and it all has something to do with corn, but no one knows why.  The coolest aspect of the short is that the children have an assortment of homemade weapons, mostly utilizing ears of corn, but not exclusively; at one point they bust out a switchblade crucifix to take care of the outlanders.  The short running time doesn't leave much room for characterization, or even a decent ending really.  The couple narrowly escape the children and then drive away (to what seems like a pretty safe distance) before they realize that their car is getting too hot and it's revealed that a corn-knife is stuck in the grill.  The end.  The car doesn't overheat or stop, but it might.  And therein lies the terror apparently.

The Night Waiter is also a decent short (actually better than anything else in the Nightshift Collection in my opinion) although it's inclusion on this tape is somewhat odd.  The story is vaguely reminiscent of The Shining, but that's where the King connection ends.  The Night Waiter of the title is a young college student on his first night of work at the Bayview Hotel.  His first night isn't going so smoothly, and to make matters worse he keeps hearing strange noises and music coming from room 321 (I had to check to make sure it wasn't the same room as the one in The Shining, neither book nor film).  And the night manager is real jerk too, always playing pranks and trying to spook the new guy.  All he wants to do is a deliver a ham and swiss to the woman across the hall from 321, but things really don't go his way.  The Night Waiter is a worthwhile short, with a pretty decent twist ending to boot.  The scare factor is only a notch above Are You Afraid of the Dark? or Goosebumps, but that's the most you can ask for with something like this anyway.

The best thing on the tape is actually the lone coming attraction before the two shorts.  It's for something called Slightly Astounding Stories (I can't find anything about it online) and it features a giant insect-like craft flying over a crowded city, landing on a high-rise building, clutching it, tearing it out of the ground, flying it far out of the city, and eventually dropping it on an old man who's crawling through the desert.  It's totally bizarre and hilarious, and the cheap special effects are surprisingly well-done.  I hope that some day I stumble across some more info about that movie, but somehow I doubt it.  I'll keep my fingers crossed though.

MARCH 24 2016 VHS MOVIE REVIEW : DEMON OF PARADISE (1987)

A group of fishermen in Kihono, Hawaii are illegally fishing with dynamite when they unleash a long-dormant creature (in other words, a man in a rubber suit). After causing the fishermen to blow up their own boat, the creature then goes on a killing spree. The local natives believe that a mystical beast called Acua has returned, so they perform an ancient ritual (lots of hula dancing) to keep the creature at bay so they can continue fishing. It doesn't work. Local cop Keefer (William Steis), who use to be a sheriff in Reno, Nevada until a serial killer made him lose his edge, joins forces with visiting herpatologist (it's a reptile expert, stupid!) Dr. Annie Essex (Kathryn Witt) to get to the bottom of the killings. Complicating matters is nosey tabloid reporter Ike (scripter Frederick Bailey), who is working in cahoots with down-on-her-luck resort owner Cahill (Laura Banks) to publicize the creature's sudden appearance, so it makes the resort a popular tourist attraction. Also on the island are two criminals, Langley (Nick Nicholson) and Shelton (Henry Strzalkowski), who are waiting for a huge shipment of TNT to arrive, which they plan on selling to the local fishermen (the ones that aren't superstitious, that is). As the tourists start pouring in, the killings begin to escalate and Keefer wants to close down the resort's lake, but in true JAWS fashion, Cahill refuses and tells Keefer to do his job ("I'm not going to let anyone railroad me!"). Cahill holds a "Creature Egg Hunt", where the tourists search for eggs hidden around the resort (you've got to be kidding me!), but when Keefer and his men have a shootout with Langley and Shelton and the creature puts in an appearance and kills Shelton, all the tourists leave the resort in a panic. Keefer calls in the National Guard and they drop grenades on the creature from a helicopter. This just pisses-off the creature, as it then walks on land for the first time and traps everyone in the resort's main cabin. The creature begins picking off people one-by-one and then chases the remaining survivors to the ruins of an ancient temple, where the creature faces-off with Keefer, Annie and the National Guard in the film's explosive finale. This is prolific Filipino director Cirio H. Santiago's second horror film (after VAMPIRE HOOKERS - 1979) and it's easy to see why he didn't make any more. He stinks at it. This is basically a remake of UP FROM THE DEPTHS (1979; which Santiago produced) and it's a boring mess, with long stretches where nothing happens, followed by an explosion every now and then, followed by an appearance of the creature, which is laughable at best. The subplot about Keefer's past is never fleshed out, besides him saying "I came here to get away from this stuff!" when the murders begin to happen and then later mentioning to Annie that he is a widower (we never really know if the serial killer back in Reno murdered his wife). The film is also rather dry and relatively gore-free for a horror film. The creature attack scenes are few and far between (the sparse gore consists of after-effects of the creature attacks, like slash marks on the face and chest of it's victims), as Santiago would rather focus on the action elements of the film, like Langley and Shelton's dynamite exploits and several gunfights and explosions. Santiago could be an efficient director when faced with the right material (see reviews of FINAL MISSION - 1984; NAKED VENGEANCE - 1985; SILK - 1986), but he seems uncomfortable when it comes to directing horror. He plays it way too safe, which is probably why he didn't make more of them after this. Almost all of Santiago's action and post-nuke flicks (STRYKER - 1983; RAIDERS OF THE SUN - 1991) display more blood and gore than this film, so avoid this and watch one of those instead. Also starring Lesley Huntly (who supplies this film's only topless scene), Joe Mari Avellana (also the Second Unit Director and Production Designer), Paul Holme, Liza Baumann, David Light, Ronnie Patterson, Dave Anderson and Joseph Zucchero. Many of them have appeared in numerous Santiago films in the 80's & 90's. Released on VHS by Warner Home Video and, like most of Santiago's 80's output, not yet available on DVD. Rated R. { text from critcononline.com }
