1980 was an amazing time of ups and downs. Jimmy Carter was President, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back was released, John Bonham of Led Zeppelin died of alcohol poisoning, comedian Richard Pryor was badly burned trying to freebase cocaine, and Ulli Lommel's Blank Generation was unleashed on an unsuspecting populace.

News that Ken Foree is starring in a movie about the DC Sniper shootings would normally prove promising. Except DC Sniper is the latest from Ulli Lommel, the master of plotless, no-budget, factually inaccurate, pseudo-art exploitation flicks about real-life mass murderers. On the plus side, this does not look like the typical artsy-fartsy crappola we've come to expect from Lommel. On the other hand, just wait until you see the trailer. Oh, my.
Could it be that after years of making no-budget, nearly plotless, factually inaccurate, pseudo-art films based on the exploits of real-life mass murders (like Nightstalker, review here), Ulli Lommel is actually about to try his hand at making a real motion picture, albeit still a really low budget and possibly factually inaccurate film based on a real-life serial killer? How else does one explain Ken Foree signing on to star in Lommel's take on the DC Sniper?

I've got a wacky idea. Indie horror filmmakers Ulli Lommel and Michael Feifer should have a fight, and only the winner is allowed to make any more movies based on the exploits of real-life serial killers. I'd be cheering for Feifer, if only because he at least attempts to make actual movies.

Good old Lionsgate; their DVD division can always be counted on to provide us with a constant supply of low budget fright flicks. Today I decided to help spread the word about six of the more low profile Lionsgate straight-to-DVD horror offerings coming in the next three months, starting from June and working backwards. Good news: none of them are new movies from Ulli Lommel.
