10 Films you might not have heard of (Akumakon 2015)

1 Hagan. 1 audience. 1 Hour. 10 movies (each varying degrees of obscure)

The movies: Actium Maximus, C Me Dance, Manborg, Monster Man, Repligator, Six String Samurai, Versus, Vikingdom, Wild Zero, ZsaZsa Zaturrnah.

*I first did one of these at BroCon in summer 2014. I think I’ll do one at most cons I can (switching the films up each time to keep it interesting)



  1. Lovely Panel! You did find your grove around the second or third film. Also, you made me want to watch pretty much every single one of those films.

    Except for “Where the Dead Go To Die”, of course.

  2. Yes! “Actium Maximus” has not been forgotten! It’s weird that I have such an interest in a bad movie I only know about from Something Awful’s movie review column, but that column was my first real foray into movie reviewing, so I have fond memories.

    Also, from what I’ve heard, the cliffhanger isn’t there for a sequel… supposedly the movie is a TV pilot, so it was trying to set up a series.

  3. I’ve only seen 2 of those Six string Samurai really is a great movie, and where the dead go to die is really fucked.

  4. I’m not sure whether or not the fact that I’ve seen or at least heard of most of these films is something I should be proud of, but I am 😛

    I have you, Diamanda, to thank for introducing me to the awesome majesty that is Manborg.

  5. Troma have uploaded Actium Maximus to their youtube channel if anyone is interested in watching it

  6. I am well aware of C Me Dance. Saw the trailer for this movie many years ago, and even today I think it looks so stupid. If there is a movie that you and Irawss should do a cross over on, C MNe Dance looks like the best pic!

    I am now on the searth for Six String Samurai, Manborg, and Wild Zero!

    • Actually the one I have lined up for a possible Irawss crossover is Suing the Devil 🙂

      • A fun little factoid you could include is that there actually is a case on the book about suing the devil: Gerald Mayo vs. Satan and His Staff. The judge threw it out for multiple reasons, but the best is because he was “suing a foreign prince”.
