    House on Straw Hill (1976) #Slasher #Horror

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. An author goes to a secluded location to write a new novel. House on Straw Hill (1976) adds to the vast stack of films and books with this theme, but this one is slightly different because I think it’s soft porn. Oh, by the way, this film […]

    Eraserhead (1977) #1FromTheVaults

    I had contemplated not writing a review for Erasurehead (1977) because I’m not sure what I saw. It’s a black and white film probably to cover up the low budget factor of the effects. Also, in the beginning, I thought it was a silent film as no one speaks until Henry Spencer returns home and […]

    The House That Dripped Blood (1971) #1FromTheVaults

    The House That Dripped Blood (1971) is a horror anthology revolving around a rental house. Real estate agent, Stoker, tells Inspector Holloway about the four previous tenants. The interludes in between embellish the stories nicely. Be sure to pay attention to the small details; some of them are just divine. The first story is about […]

    Classic Audrey Rose (1977) #HorrorMovie Review

    Audrey Rose (1977) was adapted from the book of the same name by Frank De Felitta. Having not read the book, I don’t know if it’s as strange as this film. The idea of reincarnation is fascinating, but how this was depicted didn’t exactly work for me. This chilling tale explains how Elliot Hoover figured […]

    Tower of Evil (1972) #HorrorMovie Review

    If Tower of Evil (1972) was intended to be an exploitation film, it didn’t really meet what my expectations of them are. They did start it out with creepiness with the over-filled fog on the soundstage as the two men go to the island to find the kids that went out there. Besides the opening […]

    Vampire Circus (1972) #1FromtheVaults #Horror

    What’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys? Vampire Circus (1972). This one opens with the oiled down muscle dude hitting the giant gong, announcing ‘The Rank Organisation presents a Hammer Production,’ so you know it’s gonna be good. Well, you’d think. Vampire Circus is just strange for me and is longer than it needed […]

    Phantasm (1979) #HorrorClassic

    After each time I see Phantasm (1979), it lingers in the back of my head for days. It has to be one of the most iconic movies for me for that reason. The beauty of the marble halls with the coffin drawers always delights my senses, but that’s not all that entices me into this […]

    Moon of the Wolf (1972) #HorrorMovie Review

    Moon of the Wolf (1972) was a made for TV movie that tried really hard, and I don’t know, maybe, if I’d seen it when I was two, I would’ve been terrified. It amazes me what, compared today, what was shown on TV; some of today’s TV shows are much more violent and gruesome than […]
