Pychotronic Movie of the Week: FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY (1981)

FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY (original title: For Y'ur Height Only)
Liliw Pictures International

Produced by Peter M. Caballes 
Directed by Eddie Nicart

Michael J. Weldon writes in The Psychotronic Video Guide:

"One of the ultimate spy spoofs stars 2'9" dwarf Weng Weng as Agent 00. He uses James Bond type gadgets and martial arts to battle the bad guys, and he gets the girl. In real life (according to Guinness, "the shortest actor to play a leading role in films") he was a paratrooper and black belt. He also stared in Agent 00 (1981). The bad English dubbing adds unintentional humor."

Psychotronic Movie of the Week: The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies (1964)

United States

Produced and Directed by Ray Dennis Steckler

Michael J. Weldon wrote, in The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film:

"The first monster musical!" claimed the ads. At a Long Beach amusement park, Madame Estrella, the gypsy fortuneteller, hypnotizes patrons, throws acid in their faces, and collects the now ugly monsters in her basement. Ortega the hunchback and Carmelita the stripper help. Hero Cash Flagg (the director) visits the gypsy and is turned into a zombie in a hooded sweatshirt! The monsters break loose during an incredible dance number and kill everyone in sight until the police arrive. Hear "The Mixed Up Zombie Stomp"! See the "1001 weirdest scenes ever!" "Not for sissies!" When the film was reissued, actors wearing the same horror masks used in the movie "crashed out of the screen to invade the audience and abduct girls from their seats!" At least that's how the ads described it. Filmed in Bloody Vision. Look for this unbelievably well-photographed oddity with Carolyn Brandt (the director's wife), Atlas King, and a hypnotic umbrella! Vilmos Zigmond was the cinematographer.

Psychotronic Movie of the Week: THE HEAD (1959)

West Germany

Produced by Wolfgang Hartwig
Directed by Victor Trivas 

Michael J Weldon writes in The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film:

"Amazing but true - the same year that The Brain That Wouldn't Die was produced, some Germans were making this similar decapitation epic. Michel Simon (a famous French actor who had seen better days) has invented serum Z. He uses it to keep a dog's head alive. His new co-worker, Dr. Ood (Horst Frank), cuts off Simon's chubby head and keeps it alive with the serum. Not wanting to be upstaged by the American counterpart, the director also has Ood put the pretty head of a crippled nurse on the perfect body of a stripper. The nurse/stripper falls in love with the stripper's boyfriend, who recognizes the nurse, but not the body! Incredible, to say the least, and the special effects are pathetic."
