Magic Lizard (1985, aka - King-Ka Kayasit)

An alien arrives in a flying saucer, intent to steal a magic jewel from the lizard-man who is guarding it. So begins one of the weirdest movies imaginable. Since there isn't room to list all the bizarre happenings, I will just mention a few; a monster crocodile, a giant flying Thai god, a graphic defecation scene, a talking monkey, huge bloodsucking mosquitos, brief nudity, and of course, the frilled dragon lizard guy -- who puffs out his neck whenever he is frightened. Our hero also speaks in a little girl's voice and rollerskates. If you enjoy totally bonkers films, you should really check out this one! (NS)

A doctor and his sickly wife move in to an abandoned mansion. The wife is nervous and frightened -- rightly so as an old hag repeatedly tries to strangle her. The husband visits a local Buddhist priest and is told the mansion's history. A lord had murdered a man for accusing him of cheating in a game, and later, raped the man's blind mother. Before she commits suicide, she begs her cat to seek vengeance against the lords household. The cat and the ghosts of its owners wreck havoc on the lord's family, until all are dead. The spirit of one victim still resides in the house. The film has occasional mild digital break-up. Part B&W and part color.

Maybe It's Love (1984) * NEW

A school girl, who's given to spying on her neighbors through binoculars, witnesses what appears to be a murder. No one will believe her, so she and her young friends decide to investigate on their own. They start by trying to determine if there are any women missing from their town. They discover that a shopkeeper's wife has gone away on a trip. There are no shortage of suspects who might have wanted to see her disappear, including her lover (the postman), her husband, a foreign film director who enjoyed rough sex, and a woman she was blackmailing. This is an entertaining Shaw Brothers homage to Hitchcock's Rear Window.
