Diary of a Madman
July 2, 2020

I find it surprising that Diary of a Madman (1963) isn’t an American International Pictures film, the style is very similar, but it does star Vincent Price. This film is based on Guy de Maupassant’s short stories Le Horla and Un fou. It was also advertised as “The most terrifying motion picture ever created!” I’ve…

Daniel Isn't Real
June 29, 2020

It’s not cheating if it’s me. Daniel Daniel Isn’t Real (2019) is based on the novel In This Way I Was Saved by Brian DeLeeuw, who also wrote the screenplay with Director Adam Egypt Mortimer. Clark provides a musical score that is stunning; it’s almost like the music has a role of its own that…

Queen of Blood
June 25, 2020

In Queen of Blood (1966) American International Pictures gives a strange futuristic world set in 1991 where we have the International Institute of Space Technology on the Moon, and we travel to Mars-like it’s no big deal. The Science Fiction aspects of the film remind of the original Star Trek TV series with echoing squeals…

Dead Birds
June 25, 2020

There are worse things than dying. Todd Dead Birds (2005) has been on my radar for a while, and I finally got the chance to watch it. It’s considered a “Western Horror,” though it’s not western at all, it’s Civil War, not the Wild, Wild West. I recognize a few actors, (Sam) Patrick Fugit from…

Alien abduction revenge seems like a good idea. Who wouldn’t want to get revenge on the jerks that probed you? But as Altered (2006) shows us, it’s not the best thing to do. Somehow Wyatt was altered when he was on the spaceship, while one died and the others were returned to earth with only…

Maniac (1980) is one of the darkest, strangest films to come from the 80s. Well, I guess technically it was made in the 70s, but that doesn’t change this “video nasty” delight from being an awesome slasher thrill ride. Joe Spinell plays Frank Zito, a creepy, gross, mentally and physically scarred man. The sexual content…

Trick r Treat banner
June 15, 2020

I’m not a huge fan of anthology films, just because the stories the producers put together don’t make sense. Trick ‘r Treat (2007) fixed that problem for me. While separate stories are being told, they are all contained to one town on Halloween and are intertwined nicely to have a cohesive film. The cast in…

After Midnight
June 11, 2020

After Midnight (1989) is another anthology film that threw three short films together with no rhyme or reason. They were supposed to be scary but weren’t really. I liked the main story about the sexy beast of a psychology professor, played by Ramy Zada, who is teaching fear. Now, that could’ve been something good had…
