“Alienator” Vs. Nicko

Outtakes from Keith & the Girl and Nicko’s brush with fame. My tale of visiting the Neverland Ranch and other such stuff. Plus we review “Alienator.

To keep the shows under an hour, sometimes I pull stories from different shows. If they are good, I saved them. If I put them on Audacity they get erased. These two stories have been saved. I’ve been meaning to add them. Sometimes I add them to the very end of the show. Here I talk about going to the Neverland Ranch, one guest admits to borrowing cable TV and Nicko talks about befriending Bil Hicks and Stephan Fry.

Then we review “Alienator” – this week’s offering at “Horrible Movie Night” in Hollywood. It’s an old show that’s on the website still but not on Itunes. Since it’s being featured this Saturday night, I thought it would be a good time to replay it. It features HMN’s John Mathot and Eric “Danger” Nyenhuis. John runs HMN. John’s description of “Alienator” from his website:

From legendary & prodigious cult movie director Fred Olen Ray, this 1985 picture has a bit of a split-personality.  The first half takes place on a prison ship cruising through the galaxy.  Jan-Michael Vincent plays the captain (along with P.J. Soles from “Stripes”), who is supervising the execution of the notorious criminal Kol.  Naturally, Kol escapes and high-tails it to Earth, where he enters the second, completely different section of the movie.  Kol runs into a group of drunken college kids, and they are all soon being pursued by an unstoppable female cyborg.  Who is the good guy?  Who is the bad guy?  Who knows?  And ultimately, who cares?
“Alienator” is an ungodly amount of fun.  Jan-Michael Vincent has the helmetest of helmet hair in a thoroughly constipated performance that’s amazing to behold.  We also Kol’s breathless method acting as he tries to acclimate to Earth’s atmosphere.  And let’s not forget to mention the female terminator (not to be confused with “Lady Terminator“), whose laser blasts can vaporize a car, but can also be deflected by a trash can lid.  Oh, and she wears golf cart hubcaps on her boobs.
