Help with old school movie titles
I’m new here and I’m a big fan of old B movies shown on cable once upon a time…
I’m trying to remember some movie titles; maybe you can give me a hand:
1 The first one looks like a rip-off of “Alien” and “Predator” where two girls, one a scientist, the other a younger civilian, are fighting against a weird monster that looks like a badly burned corpse. The scientist uses a whistle to hurt its ears but he throws her against one of those glass walls used for experiments and the hero arrives just when her unconscious or dead body is sliding down the wall. In an earlier scene she was analyzing one of the monster’s severed fingers with a microscope and after she left the finger started to move. It was shown on HBO and Cinemax in the 90’s
2 I’m not really sure if it’s a short film, demo reel, or an actual movie. It was featured on an episode of Sci-Fi Buzz on the Sci-Fi channel. It was scene where creatures came to life in a museum, a skeleton T-rex started fighting a mammoth and “killed” it and later started munching on a security guard.
3 This one is a horror comedy, pretty straight forward, were goofy aliens invade the world and they have ray guns that transform people into skeletons in 1950’s fashion (not mars attack btw), some notable victims are a clown on TV and a fortune teller. In the climactic scene the hero confronts the head alien near a geyser but his watch stops and doesn’t have time to avoid the shot and is turn into a skeleton but somehow we the alien is chewing on his flesh (maybe the gun is used to strip flesh from the victims so it can be eaten by the invading creatures)
4 Another one I first saw on the the Sci Fi Channel was this weird grind house looking full feature were bikers fought zombies and the final scene had an elder zombie drowning two bikers in a shallow pond, it looked really early 80’s maybe even late 70’s.
5 And here comes a robot movie with the same futuristic vibe as robot jox and Robo Cop. I only watched the last 20 minutes but it involved 3 agents, a man, a woman and a cyborg. The Cyborg was using his superior strength to open some locks while the other agents were begging him to stop, out comes this massive robot with shark like jaws, they shoot it to no avail but manage to blow up its hand with explosive, just when the robo jaws is about to kill the woman agent a crazy dirty bum shuts the robot down and tells the female agent she was very “bad” to him. At the end we see the bum left alone with the robot and the agent turns it back on so it can finish him off.
6 And lastly When Xena and Hercules were in their early seasons and at the height of their popularity I remember they tried to introduce a third series to the action block but this time based on a superhero transported into the future I remember it was called “Captain something” and it was more humorous than Xena or Hercules since the hero was a made to be an idiot on purpose, all I know if the show barely lasted 12 episodes and it was so bad I have never seen it mentioned again!
Ring any bells?
