war of the covers hallowed be thy nameLast week, we had all of you battle it out to decide who covered Alice Cooper’s He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask) for War Of The Covers. You guys voted and you decided that One Man Army and the Undead Quartet had he better version. This week we have a monumental battle between two bands from very different backgrounds in metal united for one simple reason and that is their love of Iron Maiden. The song I chose for you guys to battle it out over has been in the news lately because of a little controversy called a songwriting dispute. In 1982, Iron Maiden released the album The Number Of The Beast which contained a track that would be played in almost every concert since then in the track Hallowed Be Thy Name. If you want to read all about the controversy, then you can do so here at NME.com because it’s no longer being played live. Anyways, there are two bands that have covered the song with one being a black metal band from England and the other being a metal band from Oakland, CA. In 2002, UK Black Metal legends Cradle Of Filth recorded a cover of the track for a compilation album that had two discs in Lovecraft & Witch Hearts. In 2007, Oakland metal outfit Machine Head recorded a cover of the song as part of a bonus disc to their sixth album The Blackening. Now as you know, only one cover can come out triumphant and make to the radio playlist for later this year. So, choose wisely, but most importantly just vote and let your voices be heard. You have until next week to decide!

war of the covers copy He's BackLast week, we had an interesting triple threat match that saw Anthrax do battle with Tarot and Godspeed featuring Bruce Dickinson to decide who covered Black Sabbath’s Sabbath Bloody Sabbath better. You voted and decided that ultimately without contest that Anthrax had the best version. I want to let you guys know that coming in the fall will be my fourth Alumni Weekend Takeover at my Alma Mater and by voting, you are deciding what I am going to play because the winners of the War Of The Covers will be played on the show as we do a covers segment this year. With that being said, it is time to move on to this week’s War Of The Covers which features a track from the king of Shock Rock in Alice Cooper. Back in 1986, Alice recorded a track for the Friday The 13TH Part VI: Jason Lives soundtrack called He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask) (It was also on the album Constrictor) that was epic with those synths and that cool bass line. This week we have two interesting bands in a European match as Sweden’s One Man Army and The Undead Quartet take on Finland’s Warmen featuring Alexi Laiho. One Man Army… covered the track for their 2007 album Error In Evolution while Warmen covered the song with Alexi of Children Of Bodom on vocals for their 2014 album First Of The Five Elements. Now it’s up to you guys to decide who covered it better and who makes the show this fall. You have until the next War Of The Covers post to decide.

paranormal whacktivityIt’s been a couple of weeks since we last had a cheeseball cinema film and I was cruising through Netflix when I came across a film that peaked my interest. Actually in all honesty, the film that I watched for today is one that I have been putting off watching for a while, but I decided that today was the day to watch the spoof film Paranormal Whacktivity. The film is about a young couple named Michael (William Patrick Riley) and Kasey (Sasha Formoso) who just move into a brand new house to get their relationship going, but there is just one major problem. You see all Michael wants to do is film himself pleasuring Kasey to the fullest, but a demon named David (Mighty Mike Murga) stands in his way as he wants Michael’s girl for himself. Now the couple have to figure out a way to get rid of him before it is too late. The film also stars Jeremy Walker (The Identical) as Tiger Woods, Chris Pentzell (Last Call At Murray’s) as the Psychic, Damatri Crayton (Domestic Doug) as Demonbuster, Melinda Cohen (Shameless) as The Professional, and the film was directed by Roger Roth (Shot).

Paranormal Whactivity 2I really thought that going into this film that it was going to be a big pile of crap, but it actually wasn’t half bad. It’s not the greatest spoof film in the world, but it had it’s moments and I think it was well written. The film had a lot of potential going for it, but i just had a hard time connecting where the spoofs were at times. I mean it’s a no brainer that the film is a giant Paranormal Activity spoof, but where the spoofs of other films. I mean definitely saw spoofs of The Hangover, Avatar, and Ouija but it was hard at times to identify any others. I think the main two stars of the film were perfect for it, but every one else in the film was a hit or miss and comedy is tough to do. They tried to make a sex offender funny (which was a stupid character), but the Demonhunter (Ghostbusters parody) was a great addition to the cast. I don’t know why, but every time I looked at Michael, I just kept thinking he looked like Kirk Cameron if he decided to not be so religious. He just had that vibe about him, but his co-star Sasha Formoso was very hot and very good on screen. The film definitely has some T&A in it for those of you that crave it, but not from Formoso who gets down to just bra and panties. Sorry guys, but it must of not been in her contract. Like I said, it’s not the greatest spoof in the world, but it’s a decent one to check out if you’re bored one day. On a scale of one being close to an A-List Hollywood film and five being the cheesiest film of all time, I would give it a 2.8 for a final grade.

We are going to keep this short and sweet because the pictures describe it better than words can so here are all the winners for both the movies and the music sides. For the wrestling side of it, please click here to go to Mr. X’s Punch Out to see those.

samson-vs-the-vampire-womenIt’s been a while since I did a Cheeseball cinema film and I figured with my 365 Movies in 365 days challenge almost coming to an end that I would try to fit one in. A couple of weeks ago, Chris Jericho posted something on Instagram about a legendary Mexican wrestler by the name of Santo and when i looked him up, he was basically a superhero. I also saw that Mystery Science Theater 3000 also covered today’s film (and that’s good enough for Cheeseball Cinema) which is known in America as Santo Versus The Vampire Women (in Mexico as Santo vs. las mujeres vampiro and the alternate name Samson Vs The Vampire Women). Professor Orlof (Augusto Benedico) is worried about a prophecy that says that his only daughter Diana (María Duval) will be the next Vampire queen. He learns that the prophecy is coming to life when a vampire by the name of Tundra (Ofelia Montesco) is on the hunt for her along with her henchman. So, the professor hires Santo to try and prevent the prophecy from coming true. The film also stars Jaime Fernandez (A Bullet For The General) as Inspector Carlos, Lorena Velázquez (Doctor Of Doom) as Zorina, queen of the vampires, Xavier Loyá (A Woman Without Love) as Jorge, and the film was directed by Alfonso Corona Blake (The Road Of Life).

santoI swear you watch these films to see just how cheesy they really are and this one definitely has it’s moments. If I was to talk to you about wrestling, I would compare this film to a wrestling film meets vampires. Santo is the face (good guy) of the film while Tundra and her three henchman (Fernando Osés, Guillermo Hernández, and Nathanael León) are the heels of the film. Tundra is basically their manager and they do her dirty work for her which is very typical of wrestling back then. It was also typical that they would get the face good, but he would eventually overcome and defeat the heels and save the day. The whole film plays out like that and we even get some wrestling matches as well. There is only one match that is worth watching and it’s the last one he has in the film, but you can see the beginnings of Lucha Libre wrestling in the film for sure. The cheesy parts of the film are like the bats that are obviously on strings or how the crowd can be heard chanting Santo at one point before they are dubbed to be saying Samson. I also loved how one Vampire tries to fly away, but as soon as he sees the cross on a building, he burns right up. The story is classic, but there are plenty of things to poke fun of in the film for sure. There’s no T&A here, but there is plenty of beautiful women as vampires in it. On a scale of one being close to an A-List Hollywood film and five being the cheesiest film of all time, I would have to give this one a 3 for a final grade because I did enjoy it (that’s cause I love cheesy films).
