The Films of Jeff Krulik and Friends (1998)

Director: Jeff Krulik

Starring: Jeff Krulik, Ernest Borgnine, Freddie Blassie, Howard Stern

More info: IMDb

Plot:  A collection of short films by Jeff Krulik made for cable access in the 80s and 90s.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

This sounded a lot more fun that it was.  I would've rated it lower if it hadn't been for the Ernest Borgnine film that closed the video out.  That was really great but then I'm a big Borgnine fan so that's pretty much a given.  The rest of the video is OK to terrible with the latter being spending way too much time with Freddie Blassie.  Man, was that guy annoying.  He wouldn't stop saying 'pencil neck geek' (he recorded a song with that tile fifty something years ago.  The Krulik short film he's known for is HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT (1986) which is just him talking to wacked out fans in the parking lot for a Judas Priest concert.  Most of them are either drunk or drugged and are making fools of themselves.  That could be funny but it rarely was as they were just acting stupid with very little entertainment value.  You might dig this if you like random obscurities.
