Don’t worry dear, it gets worse. Dr. Mercer Boley Gargoyles (1972) is a made for TV movie with a classic 1970s musical score. I expected this film to be more low budget than it was since it was made for TV, but I was mistaken. I was impressed with how quickly it moved along with…

The Food of the Gods
January 7, 2021

Oh, God, help us. I won’t never sin again, never. Only don’t let no rats eat us. Please God. Mrs. Skinner The Food of the Gods (1976) is an American International Pictures gem that I’m so thankful to the Scream Factory for bringing back into the light. It’s loosely based, and I mean loosely, on…

Night of the Lepus (1972), aka Rabbits, begins with a believable newscast about the environment and rabbits’ overpopulation. Well, if you live where I do, you know the rabbit population is enormous. This film is like Empire of the Ants (1977) or Food of the Gods (1976) – rather, those films are like Night of…

The Town That Dreaded Sundown
November 26, 2020

The incredible story you are about to see is true, where it happened and how it happened; only the names have been changed. The Narrator The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976) is an early slasher example, and one of the better ones that go on the top shelf with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and…

From the bizarre opening to the end, I couldn’t help think that Deranged (1974) is a strange copy of Pyscho (1960), then later I saw bits of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) thrown in though they were released in the same year. The story revolves around Ezra Cobb, who lives/d with his mother and takes care…

Nothing But Night
October 8, 2020

Another “horror” movie that I find awful Nothing But Night (1973). It opens with sexy music and ocean-scapes as the credits pop on and off the screen, followed quickly by a fiery car accident, a man being pushed off a balcony, and then a woman being shot in the face. My favorite is the bus…

Night Terror
August 20, 2020

This one is odd, is it named Night Terror (1977) or Night Drive, Googling finds both? The guide with my television provider says Night Drive, but the tile is Night Terror as is the opening title screen, and Amazon lists it as Night Drive, too. Either way, I was impressed that MGM-HD showed it. I…

Deliverance (1972)
August 13, 2020

Deliverance (1972) is in the top five of the most bizarre thrillers I’ve ever seen. For those who’ve never seen the film, it’s a nice wholesome movie about four friends who go on a canoe trip down the Cahulawassee River before a hydroelectric dam is completed and floods the land. Well, that’s how it starts….
