    I'm a fan of Elite Entertainment's Drive-In discs, but I know that Something Weird Video was doing the discs long ago (if you consider 3 to 4 years ago long).

    My question is:

    What are Something Weird's best Drive-In Double Feature discs?

    What are the best plain Double Feature discs?

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    You raise a kid on MST3K and the Sci-Fi Drive-In at Walt Disney World's Disney-MGM Studios, and he's bound to dig stuff like this.

    EDIT: I can live with Something Weird's on-screen logo as well.

    THE VIOLENT YEARS/GIRL GANG is my personal favorite. The first film has a script by Ed Wood. DEATH CURSE OF TARTU/STING OF DEATH is another good one but I really didn't care too much for the second feature. TARTU is a childhood favorite, although the film certainly isn't a masterpiece.

    Thanks, Michael and Todd.

    I'm a major fan of cheese...90% of the movies I have on DVD and VHS could be considered cheese.

    Thanks for the recommendations.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    Keep the suggestions coming, though!

    Also doesn't hesitate to check out Something Weird/Image's two STARMAN discs. The four films contained therein are seriously brain-damaged fun for the MST3K fan (along the lines of PRINCE OF SPACE and INVASION OF THE NEPTUNE MEN), and the extras are super (MY MILKMAN JOE (even odder/scarier than MR. B NATURAL), two episodes of the 1960s black & white anime PRINCE PLANET, lots of incredible 1960s/70s Euro superhero trailers (think PUMA-MAN and DANGER: DEATH RAY quality), etc).

    Behold, the power of CHEESE! [​IMG]

    I have snapped up all the Herschell Gordon Lewis discs they have put out. Those are great. Some of Harry Novak's nudie flicks are fun as well.

    No, you can't :p)

    I have Defilers/Scum of the Earth and Just For the Hell of It/Blast-Off Girls which don't have any on-screen crap (Blast-off Girls is a great movie too!) but I also have the one with Monster Of Camp Sunshine which has the SWV on all the trailers, though the movies look good, but that's probably the last disc I'll ever buy from them. I'd buy all their drive-in discs just for the trailers if they didn't have the 'watermark' on them; anyone know which others DON'T have it?
