The Lost Empire

So, what’s a movie that starts with a shot of cleavage and has Angus Scrimm? Get this one right and you may be the champion at the next bar trivia challenge. It’s this film! All of you who picked The Lost Empire chose wisely!

Welcome to trashy film night, everyone!  Lower your expectations and have a good time!  This film is by Jim Wynorski, who was a protege of Roger Corman.  And he delivers the goods in this film!  BY GOODS MEAN…

  • Awesome 80’s women in crazy outfits
  • Non-stop action
  • Angus Scrimm

Jim both wrote and directed this film.  In fact, tonight’s film was his directorial debut. He has (so far) directed over 100 films and he produced some of the most cable-riffic films of the 80’s and 90’s such as Chopping Mall, Deathstalker II, Scream Queen Hot Tub Party, Sorceress and more!  All of those and more filled up cable TV and video rental stores during the great 80s and 90s hey day of B movies.

I thought about writing up the plot a little, but I am phoning it in and stealing from IMDB: It’s “A Roaring Adventure With Blistering Action and Eye-Popping Women.”  So celebrate and dig through the trash with me!  Watch!  Or Don’t!  Everything is voluntary!

Next week… I am torn!  All the Russia/Nazi stuff in the news makes me want to show Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead.  Sadly, it is a true continuation so I would have to explain the first film.  So chances are I will play more trash like Dr. Alien, Hillbillys in a Haunted House, or even Batwoman!  Let me know your preference in the comments!
