Crazy Films of '79:
(And their somewhat insane a.k.a.- titles!)
Monster (Kenneth Hartford, 1979)
A.k.a. It Came from the Lake (Straight title, in so many ways a better name for a (monster)movie than 'Monster'.)
Monster - The Legend That Became a Terror (Great title, howcome they didn't use this??)
Monstroid (Again a smashing good title, I assume there were a lot of cool guys involved in this production...)
Toxic Monster (Less inspired title, sadly.)
Starcrash (Luigi Cozzi, 1979)
A.k.a. The Adventures of Stella Star
Female Space Invaders
Scontri stellari oltre la terza dimensione (Nice Italian title - la terza dimensione has a diabolical ring to it - just as Marjoe Gortners acting throughout the movie itself.)
Stella Star (Pointless title for audiences who cannot tell that Caroline Munroe is the SuperSexy SpaceWoman Supreme.)
Alien (Ridley Scott, 1979)
A.k.a. Star Beast (Its US-working title sounds kinda thrashy. When you hear Star Beast you think of Star Crystal - a movie that really blows.)
The Black Hole (Gary Nelson, 1979)
A.k.a. Space Station One (This working title is good. We'd really like to make a movie called Space Station One.) The film itself, by the way, is cool.
1941 (Steven Spielberg, 1979)
A.k.a. The Night the Japs Attacked (Spielbergs working title for this "hilarious" comedy could probably not have saved this movie from neither kamikaze-reviews or bloodthirsty audiences.)
Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (Irwin Allen, 1979)
For some reason this one has no alternative title. This is probably because of the wellknown fact that every movie- title with words like "beyond" or "beneath" in it kicks butt. (Like Beyond the Valley of the Dolls and Beneath the Planet of the Apes)
If there should have been an alternative title our suggestions are:
Space Station One or Michael Caine Station One.
Week of Apr. 28. - May 4.
Avenging Charles Bronson Tagline- Week:
Paul Kersey, the Architect of buildings at day and revenge-killings at night.
The Worlds Angriest man, the Hardest Man of them all, the most Merciless and (we might add) most unlucky. All the Women in his life are slain by the scum of the Earth; rapists, killer- gangs, drugdealers and muggers. It’s all up to him to End the Madness. He’s the Ultimate Vigilante.
Between a period of twenty years Paul Kersey (portrayed by the Immortal Charles Bronson with several, at least two, angry/bitter facial expressions) worked day and night to kill as many criminal street- punks as possible. The films range from the classic to the insane to the sad and boring. The exact same thing can be said of the taglines that accompanies the films:
Death Wish (Winner, 1974)
Tagline: Vigilante, City Style -- Judge, Jury, and Executioner
Death Wish II (Winner, 1982)
Tagline: Bronson's Loose Again In Death Wish II
Death Wish 3 (Winner, 1985)
Tagline: He's Back to New York bringing Justice to the Streets...
Death Wish 4: The Crackdown (Thompson, 1987)
Tagline: This time it's War!
Death Wish V: The Face of Death (Goldstein, 1994)
Tagline: The Vigilante is Back...
Films made by J.Lee Thompson during the Eighties NOT starring the ever-loving Bronson.
All lines spoken by Kurt Russell in Tango & Cash.

Dennis Hopper in the Seventies.

HULK annual 5
Bjørn Bjørnsen's 1981 book on how to make 8mm films containing the expression chok-zoom on page 29.
It's described as a fast zooming making the object on screen appear larger and closer to the audience.
Now we know what to do in our upcoming projects I guess. Chok-zoom all the way through like there's no tomorrow. Bjørnsen - you are in our good book.
Films not using chok-zoom as an artistic method.
Sadly this excludes our all-time favorite THE OMEGA MAN.

The Star Trek original series episode were the crew of the Enterprise encounter Sam Kirk, the brother of Jim Kirk. William Shatner in mustache - an absurd delight not for the faint at heart.
Tom Atkins - one of HomeMade Productions definitive favorite actors. His most definitive works include:
NIGHT OF THE CREEPS (Zombies and aliens in Eighties classic.)
HALLOWEEN 3 - SEASON OF THE WITCH (Robots and deadly masks in Eighties classic.)
JOHN CARPENTER'S THE FOG (Pirate-ghosts and fog in Eighties classic.)
