    EVILS OF THE NIGHT (1985)
    World War II hero and B-movie notable Neville Brand (THE MAD BOMBER) made his final film appearance in this ridiculous sci-fi/horror hybrid. And it’s not exactly an auspicious swan song. Space aliens John Carradine, Tina Louise and Julie Newmar (who arrive in a spaceship that looks nothing like the outer space stock footage) take over an abandoned hospital in the woods, where they extract the blood from California youths to use in experiments to discover a life-lengthening serum. For some reason, instead of capturing their own specimens, they hire aging garage mechanics Brand and Aldo Ray to attack camping teenagers, bonk ‘em on the head, and drag ‘em back to the clinic in exchange for a gold coin reward. Porn stars Jerry Butler and Amber Lynn are among the many performers delighting us with surprisingly graphic (R-rated) nude scenes, although I most wanted to see bosomy actresses Karrie Emerson (CHOPPING MALL) and G.T. Taylor pop their tops. Mardi Rustam is a washout as a producer, director and (especially) writer, cobbling together a loony, barely comprehensible film and one of the most hilarious endings I’ve seen in awhile. Brand lived for several more years after this, but doesn’t look very good—making him all the more creepy-looking in the scenes where he paws young actresses.
