Image
TheArchive wishes you all safety and well-being during this time, especially if you endeavor to stream.... Buzzard Hollow Beef .  Be careful who has you for dinner... Here's to a Cannibal Thanksgiving like no other!

Occult and Evil in the Horrors of Vietnam

Written by Vietnam historian Peter Alan Lloyd,  M.I.A. A Greater Evil   is a thrilling horror film that touches on the conspiracy theories and notions surrounding the Vietnam War—those that suggest nearly 2,000 POWs were lost and kept captive in the jungles of Vietnam.  M.I.A.  deals with one of the great conspiracy theories of the 20th century, detailing the unknowns and the uncomfortable truths. In M.I.A. A Greater Evil, a group of American college students embark on an expedition in search of gold throughout the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. The college students (Valerie Bentson, Sarah Ball, and Mark Matula) are joined by their Geology professor in search of gold along a river in Vietnam.  With past stories of French gold miners finding riches within the waters, their intrigue is not deterred by rapids, detoured routes, or talk of the War and its ominous presence over the area. But their dreams of riches quickly unravel when an unintended detour leaves the group

Fall asleep??? Not possible with Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, and Betty herself Ms. Bacall coming at you. And that would be some serious horror if Lauren Bacall could get to you. In her current state and all. So yeah you heard us - we have some A List stars up in TheArchive . Keitel, Law, and Bacall are in Presence of Mind . And so is Nilo Zimmermann. You know, Lydia Zimmermann's son. Their name has two Ns. So much name dropping here. They should have dropped the extra N though. And if you haven't unfollowed us after watching that gem we buried the leads: Mutant - which is a legit good little freaky creature feature. One Dark Night - Adam West. That's enough. Uninvited - this one features the OG "Flerken" that Captain Marvel clearly ripped off! And th ere's all kinds of Amityville horror t o watch. Not the original classic good one. You can get that on Amazon Prime.  While you're there download our app . Not that Ryan Reynolds one either. But we DO have th

B-Movies, Leslie Nielsen and Bears, oh my! (aka an exploration into insanity) You've been warned... There are plenty of weird movie clips that we all see shared across the web. You know the ones. Those clips so out of context, so bizarre and head scratching they couldn't possibly be legit? So on this lovely summer day, I wanted to share with you something so timely, so lined up with hipster pop culture that I have dug out from TheArchive none other than Leslie Nielsen and wait for it...animals on attack! I mean who needs funny man Sandler and his latest Netflix yawner or the lunatic in Tiger King when I'm delivering you the real uncut gems! IMHO (yes throwback Thursday acronyms may abound), there is one clip that defies so much logic that it actually becomes more baffling, as more context is gleaned. One where a shirtless Leslie Nielsen, you know, that perpetually white haired real funny guy, best known for his roles in Airplane! and Naked Gun, figh
