"Night of the Demons"
Night of the Demons (1988) was the second film from the director and producers that brought us Witchboard. It was well reviewed at the time, and did well in theaters. As in Witchboard, all of the effects, some of which were quite good, were practical effects, not done in CGI on a computer. In the best known scene, Linea Quigley pushes a tube of lipstick into her left nipple and it disappears. It is a standard plot line. A bunch of kids decide to have a Halloween party in a haunted former mortuary, and the demons who possess the building start to kill then possess the kids.
Cathy Podewell, as the good girl, shows buns and breasts through a partially transparent bra. Linea, who get to become a demon in stead of a victim in this one shows breasts in a lengthy scene, and then bush at the end. Jill Terashita shows breasts having sex in a coffin. IMDb readers have it at 4.5. It grossed $3.11M against a budget of $1M, and was completed in a 2 day shooting schedule. They had a great deal of trouble earning an R rating, mostly because the violence and gore were stretching the envelope at the time. The story is trite, but the film does contain humor, and has atmosphere. Again, the characters left me nobody to relate two, so it was hard to care what happened to them. This is a C-, too tame for todays standards, but quite cutting edge when it was released.

Shiloh sent in a clip of Trudie Styler in The Scold's Bridle (see
Shiloh's section), a BBC mystery film, and I realized that I've
never seen any good captures from this film, which has never been on
DVD. I have never before seen ANY captures of her pubic flash. Since
Shiloh's clip is pretty good, I gave it the ol' college try, or in
this case, the ol' "collage" try, and these aren't bad.

Despite atrocious reviews, Exorcist wins the weekend Box Office.
- It did about 60% better than predicted by the Box Office Mojo forecast.
- #2 Without a Paddle performed very similarly: low expectations, poor reviews, but 60% above forecast.
- The forecaster expected Open Water to take the #1 slot, but it limped in at fifth.
- AVP took a precipitous 67% tumble from last week, but Yu-Gi-Oh did even worse than that!

The PsyOp Officer from Kerry's Swift Boat unit tells his version of what happened on March 13, 1969.
This is not scientific, but is sorta interesting.What if the whole world could vote in the U.S. presidential election? Of course, the results are heavily influenced by Europe, where Bush's approval rating is only slightly less than Hitler's.

Ten years ago The Shawshank Redemption was a low-key prison film that didn't recoup its costs. Slowly it has become one of the most popular movies of all time - why?
The ever-controversial Teresa Heinz Kerry doesn't think her husband John is qualified to be president. And who are we to disagree? As a guy who likes to make fun of people, I am torn in this election. It is hard to determine who has more potential for ridicule - Teresa Kerry, or Dubya and Darth Cheney. I'm kinda leaning toward Kerry because I'm sick of Undisclosed Location and Nukuler jokes.

The New York Times writes a long analysis: Friendly Fire - The Birth of an Anti-Kerry Ad
- Of course, the most damning evidence is simply in the previous words from the same guys, but the paragraph I like best is this: "Records show that the Swift Boat group received the bulk of its initial financing from two men with ties to the president and his family - one a longtime political associate of Mr. Rove's (sic), the other a trustee of the foundation for Mr. Bush's father's presidential library." Hey, there's a surprise, eh? Even Pete Rose could have placed the right bet on that one.
- Note the grammatical error in the New York Times, indicated by the "sic"!

Armed men stormed into an Oslo art museum Sunday and stole Munch's The Scream, one of the most famous paintings in the world. Believe me, this was a ticking time bomb. I lived in Oslo for years, and I was always aghast at the total lack of security in the museums. There is another version of the Scream in the National Gallery, and I think I could have taken that one off the wall and handed it out a window to an accomplice! I would mention this to Norwegians, and they thought I was nuts. Welcome to the real world, my innocent Viking friends.
Star Magazine discusses "Stars' Crazy Meltdowns". I do have one question. How can one tell when Andy Dick is having a meltdown? Does he start to act all sensible?
Kevin Costner as Robin Hood. Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist. Casting cock-ups. Here's my tip for the day: if you are going to write a web site about movies, you should at least have seen a few. Frankly, although those were all bad casting choices, they don't compare to the worst of all time. They missed the greatest and most obvious casting blunders of all-time, that I can remember: (3) Marlon Brando as an Okinawan in Teahouse of the August Moon (2) John Wayne as Genghis Khan (1) Mickey Rourke as Frances of Assisi. And while I admit that Tom Cruise's Irish-American accent was pretty silly in Far and Away, it was a helluva lot better than Olivier's feckless American accent in The Betsy - and Lord Larry was supposed to be the great Olivier, master thespian! Olivier was supposed to be playing a powerful Captain of Industry, ala Henry Ford, and he played the part with a near-perfect impersonation of Gabby Hayes, by gum, by cracky! Do you remember Hugh Grant trying to sound like he was a member of the New York mob in Mickey Blue Eyes? Well, he was trying to screw up, and still came closer to the right sounds than Olivier did! And while we all know that Dick van Dyke didn't sound like a cockney, neither did Michael Caine sound like he came from Maine in The Cider House Rules. Some great actors are marvelous with accents (Branagh and Streep come to mind), but others are not (Olivier and Brando).

Words from Scoop.
.avi's from Shiloh.
.wmv files made by Scoop from Shiloh's .avi's.
NOTE: because of a unique combination of
circumstances with the Windows media player and some substantial
bandwidth theft, we will have to do all of our movie files in zip
format. Left click on the files as you normally would to view a
you get a choice, click on "save", and put it on your hard drive in
the directory of your choice. UnZIP and play from there.
I know this is not especially convenient, but it
allows the film clips to continue. I can protect .zip files from
hot-linking in the same way I can protect still images. For some
reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not
play in the Windows media player, and I can't get a satisfactory
work-around. Perhaps I will find a better solution, but for now this
new policy allows you to continue getting the movie clips you want
to see, which is much preferable to my abandoning the clips
I promised to bring you Shiloh's caps from The
Dreamers starting today, but that can wait one more day. These took
priority. This Girl's Life is hot off the presses, and the Trudie
Styler clip is unique.
Marquis - This Girl's Life
"Scoop. I missed the first (10) minutes of the movie & pretty sure
there's another nude scene where she's stripping on the internet
... it's on again Sunday night, I'll have the cap by Monday.
Here's the info. Shiloh"
Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble
with the codecs for these movies:
FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use
DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use
virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the
vids says the video codec: DivX Decoder Filter & audio
codec: Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with.
When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG
Layer-3. A friend of mine told me about compressing the
audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been
capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this
info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp &
asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using
camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could
never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost
too much to buy in my opinion.
A reader says:
You mentioned that some users were
having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool
designed to determine what codec is needed for a video.
http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you
or your users.
I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9.
The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in
the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly
larger, and slightly lower quality.
'Caps and comments by Brainscan:
Today...a few clips (divx .avis) from "Midnight Temptations".
It stars Wendy Hamilton, former Hefmate and all-around great-looking
gal. Naked. A lot. We have a shower scene (link #1) and two sport-humping scenes.
A few other babes gave up some goodies in this movie.
Cute little redhead, Casey Mitchell plays a cop with a
very healthy sex life.
Christiva Straunje plays a model who boffs a clothes
designer (and here we thought all of them were hitting
for the other team). In this scene she removes a new
dress at his insistence... after she'd just finished
doing him. Lots of class, all of it third.
Last up is Monique Rivera. Plays another model. No
hanky-panky, just toplessness.
'Caps and comments by Spaz:
"Victim of Beauty" (1991) aka "Drop Dead Gorgeous"
Woman becomes a model to pay the bills and
then becomes target of a serial killer.
You know how it goes after that.
"Night Owl" (1993) (DVD)
TV movie about a faceless woman on the radio waves
who uses female sirens to lure men to their death.
Sort of dated comedy about the gas shortage. Actually it
could happen again. Helen shaver plays a van roaming hooker who
services men waiting in gas lineups.
Susan Bayliss: all three Bs.
"Murder One" (1988)
Based on a true story about some men who go on a crime spree.
Contains a very graphic rape scene that was mostly cut in
US prints. But it's out there uncut in Europe somewhere.
"Giant Steps" (1992)
Movie about some jazz performers.
"Superstar" (1999) DVD
The only reason to see this movie is to see Karyn Dwyer
in the locker room scene during the first five minutes.
After that it's mostly Mary Katherine Gallagher's chubby thighs,
- left to right: Natalie Radford, Elaine Hendrix, Karyn Dwyer. All in multi-hued underwear.
"You Can Thank Me Later" (1998)
Artsie comedy movie filmed in Montreal. The only real nude
scene involves a troupe of Montreal area dancers (not strippers) at an art
"Lies My Father Told Me" (1975)
Movie about growing up in a Montreal Jewish neighborhood
around the turn of the century.
"White Tiger" (1996)
Martial arts movie. Say no more.
"Sworn Enemies" (1996) aka "Coyote Run"
Another movie about a Vietnam vet who goes psycho.
No nudity despite oodles of strippers.
"Spenser: Judas Goat" (1994)
Another Robert Urich installment.
Madison: episode Road Trip
The scenes from this episode are used as teasers in
that season's opening credits.
"The Black Stallion" (tv series)
I ignored this family tv series but I noticed
at the tail end the foreign exchange student
was poking through her t-shirt.
That was really Henriette Ivanans doing the nude model
stint in an episode of Liberty Street.
Cleaning up my hard drive...
"Separate Vacations" (1986)
A treat for X-Files fans.
A young Marita Covarrubias
playing a naughty babysitter.
"Prom Night IV: Deliver Us from Evil" (1992)
'Caps and comments by Dann:
One plot twist in the later part of this 2004 Sci-Fi/Horror film doesn't save it from the lack of both: Sci-Fi and horror. There's just way too little of either.
When a couple's eight year old is killed in an accident, the wife's old college professor comes forward with an offer to clone him. Things go fine for the first eight years, then the replacement son starts "remembering" things about a child the parents don't even know.
This movie is a typical case of sntatching defeat from the jaws of victory. A good cast and decent premise, along with a nice plot twist, just couldn't save a badly written story that died during the last twenty minutes, and had a non-existing ending.
They'd have been better off to have stretched Rebecca Romijn-Stamos' love scene to an hour.
'Caps and comments by Oz:
"Teach Me Tonight"
Starting off with the soft core we have Teach Me Tonight. Everything is on show from Cece Sinclair, Kim Yates and Judy Thompson and some unknowns. The movie had a plot but I don't think anybody cared.
- Cece Sinclair
- Kim Yates
- Judy Thompson
Getting back to the conventional we have Analyze That. No nudity but Jenna Jameson gives an eyeful of her cleavage and it's a similar case with Donnamarie Recco.
Kiersten Warren has her top off in Black Cadillac and there may be a bit of see-through nipple.
"My Best Friend's Wedding"
Seeing a naked Julia Roberts is difficult these days and the underwear scene that you see in My Best Friend's Wedding is the most that you'll get.
Goodbye America is based on the American pullout from the Philippines. No nudity but some nice shots of Maureen Flannigan, Nanette Medved and Alma Concepcion.
||DAI 'caps of ChloŽ topless in a scene from the much talked about indie film by Vincent Gallo, "The Brown Bunny" (2003). All the buzz of course comes from the fact that ChloŽ gives Gallo a BJ on camera. Sorry, no DVD release info yet.
||The French actress showing off some nice toplessness in scenes from "Les Gens en maillot de bain ne sont pas (forcťment) superficiels" aka "People in Swimsuits Aren't (Necessarily) Shallow" (2001).
