Deep-Fried Cheese Movie Review: Jersey Shore Shark Attack (2012)

Tweet   by Jason D. Grooms In July of 1916 an unprecedented heat wave led thousands of tourists to the Jersey shore seeking relief.  But instead of relief, all they found was a tooth-filled horror that filled every newspaper in the country. The terror that filled the waters that summer launched a national obsession with shark attacks and even inspired…


Deep-Fried Cheese Movie Review: Bigfoot (2012)

Tweet By Jason D. Grooms There are scant few creatures that speak louder or bigger to the American fascination with monster lore than the super-hairy, unkempt, woods-tromping, barefooted beast we all know and love.  No, I don’t mean me.  I’m talking about the one and only Sasquatch or as you common folk might refer to him, Bigfoot. OK, I admit…


Deep-Fried Cheese Movie Review: Arachnoquake (2012)

Tweet   by Jason D. Grooms When I say “New Orleans” and “disaster” what comes to mind? Hurricane? Flooding? Levies breaking? Giant tidal surge? Katrina?  Not this time mon cheri. This time it’s something worse.  Something way worse.  It’s Arachnoquake.  I bet you didn’t think of an earthquake that unleashes giant, fire-breathing dungeon spiders did you?!  You heard me. Fire…


Return of the Living Deep-Fried Cheese

Tweet by Jason D. Grooms After a long hiatus, the Deep-Fried Cheese column is returning. Why? Quite frankly I’ve been watching a lot of great cheese lately and I feel like they’ve been lost in all of the Avengers/Prometheus/Hunger Games/blah blah blah chatter that has dominated the movie scene this year.  Where is the hype for Piranhaconda or Arachnoquake? And…


Deep-Fried Cheese: Movie Review – Mega Shark Versus Crocosaurus (2010)

Tweet by Jason Grooms It’s a calm, normal day deep in an African blood-diamond mining operation. The workers are digging away in a muddy, unsupported mineshaft overseen by an machine-gun-wielding slave driver. What is the worst thing that could happen? A 1,500 foot prehistoric crocodile gets woken up and goes on a rampage, that’s what. Oh, don’t forget the fact…


Deep-Fried Cheese: Movie Review – Night of the Lepus (1972)

Tweet by Jason D. Grooms There are few things more terrifying than an enormous man-eating creature with a penchant for terror and a lust for wanton destruction.  It’s even worse when that creature has enormous teeth that can chew through steel and attacks in droves with no emotion or remorse for the mayhem they cause.  Now what if those creatures…


Deep-Fried Cheese: Movie Review – The Alligator People (1959)

Tweet by Jason Grooms Have you ever worked with someone and thought, “I wonder if they have anything interesting or strange in their past or maybe there’s a deeply repressed memory in there somewhere?”  Well if you worked in Dr. Lorimer’s office, had a degree in psychiatry and a handy dandy syringe full of sodium pentothal, you would be in…


Deep-Fried Cheese: Movie Review – The Quick and the Undead (2006)

Tweet by Jason Grooms In a bizarro world where Clint Eastwood forgets how to act, zombies eat their own guts, and being a cowboy means hunting the undead with a bb gun, one man stands alone as the hero, a man who faced impossible odds.  This man who did what no ordinary human being could possibly do, what no one…


Deep Fried Cheese: Movie Review – Empire of the Ants (1977)

Tweet by Jason Grooms There is nothing worse than attending one of those high pressure time share meetings.  You know the ones I’m talking about.  You get a free boat ride, drinks and a meal and in exchange you have to put up with the pushy sales lady who keeps bugging you about buying into some crazy vacation resort. After…
