Stomp Tokyo

Posted on

Named after the original monster mash, this site goes way beyond ”Godzilla.” Florida’s Scott Hamilton and Chris Holland have created the kind of trash-movie paradise where names like Fred Olen Ray and Tim Thomerson are invoked without hesitation. Tokyo offers half-admiring, half-mocking reviews of such schlock cinema as 1973’s vampire fiasco ”Ganja and Hess ”and 1983’s desert horror film ”Scalps,” rating them on a one-to-five David Hasselhoff scale. The only goof: including reviews of current mainstream movies (”High Fidelity,” ”Erin Brockovich”), which detracts from the marvelous monstrosity.
