Name that Cult Movie- The Answering

Here there be answers!

1. "What is this, a freak-out?"- Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory: Hey, this version had anachronisms in it, too! Uttered by the apparently pretty hip Violet Beauregarde.

2. "Well, again, I didn't mean to throw a damper. Believe me that's the last thing I'd like to throw. I don't want to throw anything at all really. But when folks are horribly mutilated, I feel it's my job to tell others. We take our horrible mutilations seriously up in these parts."

"I'm sure you do. Honey, the Ranger's just doing his job."

"Of course he is. I'm sorry Ranger Brad. I guess all this talk of horrible mutilation has me on edge."

"That's all right Dr. Armstrong. This horrible mutilation has a whole lot of people on a whole lot of edges."- The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra: I was surprised to see all the love for this movie! This was an indie '04 film that spoofed B-flicks of the 1950's, and they did an amazing job. If you have an affection for movies like this, I highly recommend renting it.

3. "As the cars roar into Pennsylvania, the cradle of liberty, it seems apparent that our citizens are staying off the streets, which may make scoring particularly difficult, even with this year's rule changes. To recap those revisions: women are still worth 10 points more than men in all age brackets, but teenagers now rack up 40 points, and toddlers under 12 now rate a big 70 points. The big score: anyone, any sex, over 75 years old has been upped to 100 points."- Death Race 2000: Directed by the late, great Paul Bartel. It's the year 2000, and the mysterious "Mr. President" has created the Transcontinental Road race to keep his starving proles distracted. In this high speed car race, you're rewarded not only for time and speed, but also for how many pedestrians you take out along the way. The future of Spike TV.

4. "Daddy! You have got to come and get me... I'm at Betty's Bakery and we've got homicidal baked goods after us!"- The Gingerdead Man: Killer gingerbread man movie. Uh, don't waste your time. Gary Busey's the only thing this movie has going for it, and he's in it all of two minutes.

5. "How you doing back there, Ivan?"

(In Russian) "If I still had legs, I'd kick your ass!"

"Could you hold this guy for a while? He is so negative."- Hellboy: Okay, so it was a big, dumb Hollywood 'splosions movie with a lot of problems. But it was a big, dumb Hollywood 'splosions movie with a lot of problems that was also a hell of a lot of fun. Ron Perlman simply can do no wrong.

6. "She disintegrated perfectly, but never reappeared."

"Where's she gone?"

"Into space... a stream of cat atoms... It'd be funny if life weren't so sacred."- The Fly: The original, with Vincent Price, bitches! I'm really tempted to start using this quote around pro-life zealots, just to be annoying.

7. (reading)"Iterociter incorporating planetary generator. Iterociter with voltarator. With astroscope."

"Here's something my wife could use in the house. An 'iterociter incorporating an electron sorter.'"

"Oh, she'd probably gain 20 pounds while it did all the work for her."- This Island Earth: God, I love sexist 50's sci-fi dialogue. A classic on its own, made into a double classic when it was the subject of the barbs in MST3K: The Movie. Rent either one, or both! I particularly liked Ryan's observation in comments:
What's not mentioned is that the interociter is powered by the sexual tension between lead scientist Cal and his assistant Joe.

8. "No one wishes to see a man dance!"- Orgy of the Dead: How very, very, hetero. Ed Wood's "nekkid ladies dancing" masterpiece, made even more wonderful by the incoherent (and probably drunk) presence of Criswell as... The Emperor! The Mummy! The Wolfman! Beefcake! Cheesecake! Lounge music! Oh, my cup runneth over.

9. "Flag on the moon, how did it get there?"- The Beast of Yucca Flats: Wow... deep. Everyone's pal, Tor Johnson (Tor!), "plays" a brilliant scientist turned into a rampaging monster by nuclear radiation, who beats everyone up. Written and directed by Coleman Francis, who is well known and feared by fans of MST3K.

10. "You sucked out her brains?"

"Yeah. Right through her mouth."

"Is she dead?"

(laughs) "Of course she's dead... what, are you kidding?"- Brain Damage: A sick little horror flick with a great sense of humor that's also a ton of fun. A worm-like parasite named "Aylmer" escapes from an elderly couple that is keeping it trapped in the bathtub, and hitches a ride with dopey Rick. Rick, needless to say, isn't amused, until he gets a hit of the hallucinogenic, euphoric drug that Aylmer injects directly into his brain. Nuttiness (and gore) ensues! Adding to the fun (and insanity) is that Aylmer is voiced by the "Cool Ghoul," Zacherley! Well worth a rental, especially since it was recently released in a slick special edition DVD.

Thanks for playing! Now, let's all go to the lobby... let's all go to the lobby... let's all go to the lobby, and get ourselves a treat!
