new year's evil (1980)
Director: Emmett Alston Cast: Roz Kelly, Kip Niven, Chris Wallace, Grant Cramer, Louisa Moritz, Taffee O'Connell
Diane Sullivan is a new wave punk singer and the host of a televised New Year's Eve rock concert. During the broadcast, she starts receiving phone calls from a serial killer who plans to kill someone every time the clock strikes midnight in each American time zone. Guess who his intended victim is for Eastern Time. Yet another 80s slasher movie set on a special night of the year, this is distinguished by the fabulous rock acts on the TV show and perhaps cinema's first ever death by marijuana baggie. Roz Kelly (Pinky Tuscadero on "Happy Days") and 70s disaster movie stalwart Kip Niven head an equally distinguished cast.

Director: John Lemont Cast: Michael Gough, Margo Johns, Jess Conrad, Claire Gordon, Austin Trevor
The only thing that excites the hosts of Cinema Fiasco more than a man in a gorilla suit is Michael Gough at his scenery-chewing best and, in "Konga", you get the best of both worlds. Lost in the jungles of Africa (after a hilariously staged plane crash) a mad scientist discovers a special growth serum produced by carnivorous plants. Back in London he gives the potion to a chimp that turns into a giant gorilla and goes on a murderous rampage. There's a sexual jealousy subplot to add to the excitement and the special effects are especially engaging. The sight of a ranting stuntman in gorilla drag, clutching a Barbie doll and stomping around a miniature cityscape is one to be treasured forever.
