Where's my MoH season 2 reviews, Orph?

Anybody seen these? I want to say they were the movies Jason Bateman's character in Juno says were the greatest horror films ever, but I could be wrong. Maybe it was a different Herschell Gordon Lewis movie?
Anyway, they're pretty cheap...
These are the highlights of Drive-insploitation Cinema. Not good movies at all...but charming in an Ed Wood meets splatter kind of way. HG lewis was kinda like the Gene Hackman character in Get Shorty. I really doubt these films have aged well...but if you watch in the right frame of mind ...and break...
you may get a kick out of em. Why these are going to be put on Blu I will never know. I cannot imagine the transfer is going to be able to do much with the film.
I was tempted to watch Juno just because I heard that it made a Herschell Gordon Lewis! Obviously, I am a fan of the man's shenanigans :D
2000 Maniacs is the best of the three (yes, that's where the band got its name).
The South Will Rise Again!
And yeah, because of the low budget, I really can't see how much better the transfers can get. *shrugs*
Overall, season 2 is not as good as the first. A lot of the episodes here are amusing enough, but full of cliches, and really only worth watching if you have some down time (like not being able to sleep at 3:00 a.m, lol) or just a fan of this kind of silliness. More of the better episodes at best due tend to get mixed reviews, so take my opinions on this season with a grain of salt.
The Damned Thing-I guess Tobe Hooper wasn't contend in making just one retarded episode for this series. Ugh!
Family-This, in my opinion, is the funniest episode of the entire series. Norm from Cheers, lol, plays this creepy neighbor who keeps his family corpses around and talks to them. Normal stuff, basically.
The V-Word-Okay, but pretty cliched Vampire stuff.
Sounds Like-Directed by the same guy who directed Session 9. I really liked this one and its different since it moves away from the supernatural. This is pretty much a slow burning episode that does echo something like Session 9, so if that's not really in your taste, you will probably not like it.
Pro-Life-Okay and Ron Perlman is good to see, but nowhere near as good as Carpenter's previous entry, which left me disappointed since I expected better.
Pelts-I barely remember this one so pretty forgettable? Lol!
The Screwfly Solution-This is closer to Sci-Fi than horror about a plague that causes men to start attacking women. It wasn't perfect, but I thought that it was interesting.
Valerie on the Stairs-Based on a Clive Barker and I really wanted to like this. A story about a writer who ends up renting a room in a place where things aren't what they seemed. It had potential, but it turned out to be pretty weak.
Right to Die-Cliched with a 'twist' in the end. Meh.
We All Scream for Ice Cream-Creepy clown story, which is all sorts of silly, but I do like creepy clown stories.
The Black Cat-Gordon directed episode with Jeff Combs as Edgar Allan Poe. I had mixed feelings and thought that it could had been better, but I did enjoy it and liked Combs as Poe.
The Washingtonians- So bad that it's funny? I thought so. It's about Jefferson being a cannibal and a group of people who follow in his food steps. Amusing, but hella stupid, lol!
Dream Cruise- Meh! Filled with Japanese horror cliches (think: long haired woman ghost out for revenge).
Top Five in No Particular Order: Sounds Like, Family, The Black Cat, The Screwfly Solution, Pro-life.
Decent enough stuff, but the first series is much better.
