Blood Bath
November 12, 2020

Blood Bath (1966) – after seeing it again, I don’t get the name, but whatever – is from American International Pictures, and is a total B Movie. It’s artsy like The Cabinet of Caligari (1962) or Carnival of Souls (1962) featuring a beatnik art scene. A very young and svelte Sid Haig plays Abdul the…

Spirits of the Dead
October 15, 2020

Spirits of the Dead (1968) is a strange anthology film containing three Poe stories. While American International Pictures didn’t produce this film, they distributed the English version; I watched the French/Italian version. It’s strange that not all the voices can be heard as they are erased from the soundtrack. I wonder if it’s the same…

Journey to the Seventh Planet
September 24, 2020

At the beginning of Journey to the Seventh Planet (1962), the narrator paints a story of the future, this is an excerpt. “The year is 2001. Life is changed now. The planet Earth is no longer racked by wars and threats of annihilation. Man has learned to live with himself.” I wish we would’ve hit…

X: The Man with the X-ray Eyes
September 3, 2020

I like men who look urgent. Woman At Party X: The Man with the X-ray Eyes (1963) is a movie I’ve wanted to see again for the longest time. Roger Corman Directed and Produced this American International Pictures masterpiece with Les Baxter, adding his musical genius to the score. While the horror/terror level of this…

The City of the Dead
August 6, 2020

It always amazes me how many movies have different names in different parts of the world; it seems like it’d be so confusing for the producers and more expensive to have two. Today, I’m talking about one of those movies The City of the Dead (UK)/Horror Hotel (US) (1960). After seeing this film, I have…

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…

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…

The Birds
April 22, 2020

I can’t think of anyone that doesn’t know about this movie, even the youngsters that I work with. The Birds is one of the most iconic movies ever made, and the perfect fit for the 22nd day of 30 Days of Terror. Yes, of course, bandages! It’s terrible! Lydia Brenner Alfred Hitchcock has always had…
