Secret Societies and Flying Saucers

This film explores the connection between Ancient Secret Societies and Extraterrestrial Influences Engaging the Planet earth. Does "the great work of the ages" pursued by contemporary secret societies involve a covert plan to fully restore an ancient lost culture that flourished on this planet long before recorded history? Could it be that there is nothing "New" at all about the 'new world order', and that it is in fact, an occult scheme to resurrect an ancient totalitarian order designed to covertly serve extra-terrestrials? Explore these ideas and more in this shocking fact filled documentary.

Creepers (1985) aka Phenomena
Jennifer Connelly stars as Jennifer Corvino, the daughter of an American film star, who enrolls in a prestigious Swiss boarding school under the tutelage of the prudish Mrs. Bruckner (played by frequent Argento collaborator and former beau Daria Nicolodi). Possessing a unique telepathic gift, Jennifer is capable of communicating with insects on an instinctive level, often while sleepwalking. This trait soon brands her a "freak" among her snooty classmates but makes her a valuable asset to entomologist Dr. MacGregor (Donald Pleasence), who is currently employing the innate forensic skills of insects to aid police in tracking a serial killer targeting the boarders at Jennifer's school. As Jennifer's tiny friends (including the corpse-hunting Sarcophagus Fly) guide her closer to the murderer's lair, everything from MacGregor's revenge-driven pet chimpanzee to Bruckner's monstrously disfigured son figure into the mix, providing not one but three shocking endings.

The Twilight Girls (1957)

During the ’50s and ’60s, American films that contained even a flash of nudity were considered “porn,” and neighborhood theaters refused to show them. The exceptions were “art films,” suggestively titled Euro imports that played at upscale “arthouse” theaters. “The Twilight Girls” (1957, “Les collégiennes”) with nubile Agnes Laurent, a very young Catherine Deneuve, and several other soon-to-be “Sex Kittens” in a tale of French school-girl lust and shower scenes. What started out as a French coming of age boarding school melodrama was purchased by American exploitation distributors, extra scenes shot and turned into one of the first lesbian films that would challenge the the New York State Supreme court Censorship board and won after a 2 year battle.A beautiful and sophisticated teenager is placed in a regimented French girls' boarding school after her father apparently commits suicide over a business scandal. She immediately gains admirers -- a lustful middle-aged artist, a handsome young composer, a fellow female student -- as well as a jealous rival. With the help of her schoolmates, she attempts to elope with the composer, but the adults catch on to the plot, and she is locked into her room at night

South African Author and investigator Michael Tellinger has traced the stories of the Annunaki on Earth to ancient mining sites throughout the African continent. What was considered initially to be just a few may now turn out to be in the hundreds of thousands. So where is the evidence for the human work force that was needed to construct these ancient mines? Where they spirited off planet and why have mining companies such as De-Beers restricted access to many of these mysterious sites. Tellinger's cutting edge research may be the final piece of the Ancient Alien puzzle.

That Cold Day in the Park (1969)

A wealthy and mentally disturbed spinster (Sandy Dennis) goes to extraordinary lengths to assuage her loneliness in Robert Altman's 1969 psychological Gothic thriller.

Every night she locks his bedroom door, but the boy goes in and out of his room through the fire escape window, returning early next morning without her knowledge. She eventually attempts to seduce him and the boy soon learns who's in control of their relationship and how far she'll go to keep it that way.

Pre-Code

Wonder Bar 1934

Wonder Bar is the product of a studio in full sail, filled with snap and style, snazzily sophisticated in some ways, jaw-droppingly naïve in others. Above all, it’s a benchmark in the history of what Hollywood thought was OK to put on screen in 1934, before the withering hand of the Production Code descended like a shroud over the movies. Along with DANTE'S INFERNO and THE MERRY WIDOW also made in 1934, this film is probably the reason the censorship Hays code was rigidly enforced in Hollywood for the next 30 years. Deliriously vulgar and immoral in every scene, all set in a sensational nightclub for all ages and kinky tastes, each leering winking and squabbling, all set to foxtrots and waltzes re-imagined by Busby Berkeley and climaxing with the most hilariously offensive musical number of all time: Going To heaven On A Mule. There's no point explaining it or any other of the screwy dance numbers...including the leather clad S&M themed whipping (and murder) tango by "Inez and Harry"...complete with loud cracks of the whip across the gorgeous face of the awesomely beautiful Delores Del Rio. Someone at Warner’s must have decided to create a shopping list of production possibilities directly from the planned Hays code of banned themes. A Joy.

Before Siegfried and Roy

"Unlike anything else you've ever seen, Cat Dancers is the mesmerizing and haunting tale of the husband-and-wife team who first engaged the world in the art--and tragedy--of exotic big cat entertainment. This strikingly candid lays bare the circus-like lives of Ron and Joy Holiday, childhood friends who improbably pirouetted from dazzling careers as world-renowned adagio ballet dancers to performing with an incredible, if dangerous, cast of lions, tigers and jaguars. "A remarkable glimpse at the uncanny connection between animals and humans, this stranger-than-fiction documentary also touches on some very human passions. Marriage takes on a new twist when the youthful, charismatic Chuck Lizza joins the Holidays as a performer. The introduction of Jupiter, a rare white Bengal tiger, to the act turns out to be a fatal mistake.

Do Old Rock and Rollers Die

Rock and roll emerged as a defined musical style in the United States in the early to mid-1950s. It derived most directly from the rhythm and blues music of the 1940s, which itself developed from earlier blues, boogie woogie, jazz and swing music, and was also influenced by gospel, country and western, and traditional folk music. So that is were it began but where has it ended up. So lets now take a look at how rock 'n' roll has had to deal with the unthinkable - namely growing up and growing old, from its roots in the 50s as a music made by young people for young people to the 21st century phenomena of the revival and the comeback.

The marks generally deserve what they get, because of their greed, corruption, or just plain stupidity. It's share and share alike for Frankie (Gary Busey) and Patch (Robbie Robertson), partners in a dunk-the-bozo act in a carnival traveling through the American South. At one of the small-town stops, Donna (Jodie Foster), an alienated teenager, dumps her obnoxious boyfriend and, with Frankie's encouragement, joins up and moves into their trailer (and Frankie's bed). Feeling displaced, Patch schemes to get Donna out of the carnival. However, the carnival's owner needs Donna to foil a loathsome pair of local officials who demand payoffs. She plays her part perfectly and is accepted by all, although she moves into another trailer.

A month after the film was released to bad reviews, audiences flocked to see the film armed with Ajax and wire hangers to actively "participate" with the film in a manner similar to The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975).

Night Nurse (1931)

Often overlooked as a minor feature in the collective careers of Barbara Stanwyck, Clark Gable and director William Wellman, Night Nurse  is actually more engrossing than some of their more highly regarded films. For one thing, the often sordid subject matter is directed with considerable verve; Wellman punches up the film's raciness with a steady stream of double entendre wisecracks, mostly delivered by Stanwyck and fellow compatriot Joan Blondell, as they parade around in various stages of undress. The violence in the film is rather strong for the period as well, with Gable beating Stanwyck to the floor in one scene and then carrying her semi-conscious body off to his bedroom. More controversial was the depiction of the film's villains - so callous they could murder children for profit - and the movie's pro-vengeance ending which suggested that the police and the courts were completely ineffective in dealing with certain unlawful situations. Of course, all of this makes Night Nurse one of the more fascinating pre-Code melodramas that Warner Brothers released in the early thirties; It also led to tighter censorship controls over content.
