Can you believe that 300 days ago I started this journey where I promised to watch one film a day for the whole entire year. It sounded crazy at first and maybe I was crazy for starting this, but for day 300 I wanted to do something special. I chose a film that features two icons of horror in director George A. Romero (Night Of The Living Dead) who adapted the book The Dark Half from Stephen King into a film. Young Thad Beaumont (Patrick Brannan) always had a knack for writing, but something is disrupting his life. After discovering that his twin hadn’t been absolved and was in his head, it’s removed and he continues his life. Fast forward 23 years later and Thad Beaumont (Timothy Hutton) is a professor at a college and he has a secret identity as a writer. One day after his cover is blown, he decides to be upfront and lose the moniker of George Stark (his secret identity). The only problem is that George doesn’t want to go that easy and he comes to life to kill everyone who agreed to Thad losing the moniker. The film also stars Amy Madigan (Uncle Buck) as Liz Beaumont, Michael Rooker (Guardians Of The Galaxy) as Sheriff Pangborn, Robert Joy (The Hills Have Eyes) as Fred Clawson, Royal Dano (Killer Klowns From Outer Space) as Digger Holt, and Rutanya Alda (The Deer Hunter) as Miriam Crowley.

Since last week’s Cheeseball Cinema film, I decided that I should keep going instead of doing it just one time and I have another good one for you guys this week. The name of today’s film is Hardbodies and it’s an 80’s instructional video on how to pick up chicks at a beach. Well, I am just kidding, but the film stars Grant Cramer (Killer Klowns From Outer Space) as Scotty, a hip and cool California beach kid. Three older guys Hunter (Gary Wood), Ashby (Sorrells Pickard), and Rounder (Michael Rapport) are having a hard time picking up ladies. One day, they see Scotty doing it and they want him to teach them the ways of picking up hardbodies (gorgeous beach girls). Everything is going great for all of them until Hunter puts a move on Scotty’s girl Kristi (Teal Roberts). Now he has to teach them a lesson they’ll never forget. The film also stars Courtney Gains (Children Of The Corn) as Rad, Cindy Silver as Kimberly, Kristi Somers (Rumble Fish) as Michelle, Crystal Shaw Martell (Hard Rock Zombies) as Candy, Darcy DeMoss (Can’t Buy Me Love) as Dede, Kane Hodder (Friday The 13TH Part VII) as Older Geek, Kathleen Kinmont (Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers) as Pretty Skater, and the film was directed by Mark Griffiths (Hardbodies 2).
