T.G.I.F. #61: NOT OF THIS EARTH (1988)

TOTALLY GRATUITOUS AND INAPPROPRIATE FRIDAY is a spoiler-laden NSFW podcast where J Bryant and AngieBee discuss movies/shows you probably shouldn’t watch with your spouse, significant other, teenage children, parents, small children, buddies, children in general, siblings, folks you barely know, or ones with heart conditions. You’ve been warned.

In this week's episode of Totally Gratuitous and Inappropriate Friday, J Bryant and AngieBee discuss the sexy, silly, stock footage saturated sci-fi shocker NOT OF THIS EARTH starring Traci Lords, Arthur Roberts, Lenny Juliano, Kelli Maroney, and Roger Lodge.

When a mysterious stranger (Arthur Roberts) arrives in town, he hires Nadine (Traci Lords) as his private nurse. Although the pay is great, she becomes more and more suspicious of the stranger when his requests for blood transfusions become more frequent. After some junior detective work, Nadine finds out that her new boss is not who he appears to be …and he is not even from our planet!

Take a shot when…

…an entire sequence from another Roger Corman production pops up. Note: Take only a single shot for the opening credits which features footage from FORBIDDEN WORLD, GALAXY OF TERROR, HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP, and PIRAHNA.

…Mr. Johnson (Arthur Roberts) deadpans a punchline.

…another unwitting victim heads down into the basement.

…a boom mic wanders into frame.

…the lovely Monique Gabrielle clocks in a quick cameo as bag lady ‘Agnes’.

Take a double shot when…

…you spot a member, or members, of the crew in a reflection.

…you notice the painting in Johnson’s house can’t seem to stay in one place for too long.

…Johnson telepathically communicates with the overlords back on Davanna.

Take a triple shot when…

…Nadine (Traci Lords) shows off her post-shower high heels.

…the body of Jeremy (Lenny Juliano) mysteriously disappears.

…random mailboxes and trash cans are destroyed solely for the purposes of spicing up a car chase.

Director Jim Wynorski made a bet with Roger Corman that he could shoot the movie in twelve days. Wynorski finished the film in eleven and a half days. (IMDB)
