Edgar Allan Poe's: Buried Alive
January 21, 2021

Freedom has its limits. Gary Julian As Edgar Allan Poe’s Buried Alive (1989) started playing, I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was an American International Pictures film, but that’s not possible since they ceased operations in 1980. Oddly, the musical score sounds like something from them too, not quite Les Baxter, more like Peter…

I figured I knew what was going to happen when We Summon the Darkness (2019) began, and what made me the happiest about this film is that I was wrong. It begins with a group of girlfriends traveling across-country to see a concert when they are attacked with a chocolate milkshake that splatters their windshield….

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…

When Apparition (2019) began, I thought I was watching the wrong movie because the events in the first third of the movie aren’t what the description told me. I didn’t mind though because I liked what I was seeing as brutal as it was, and the craziness of the mom going nuts was freaky and…

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…

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…

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Stigmata (1999), so when I saw that it was going to be on TV, I had to put it in the DVR. I always found this film strange and disturbing. I like how they used the real stigmata location and give an explanation of the placement. This…

Color Out of Space
September 14, 2020

Color Out of Space (2019) is another interpretation of the written work of H.P. Lovecraft. I reviewed the 1965 and 1987 versions in a previous post that you can find here; this is similar to the 1987 rendition. Since this version has the same producer Mandy (2018), I had hope that it would be better…
