Today, I thought I’d take a slight detour and explore some non-horror B-movies. If you will, take a step with me into the world of Albert Pyun. Ready or not, let’s jump on into this bizarre collection of visual delights. Hold on tight. You’re in for one hell of a ride. Vicious Lips (1986) is…

Bride of Frankenstein (1935) is one of my favorites from the era, it adds a layer to Frankenstein’s Monster. He’s totally misjudged by everyone. He just wants to be treated like everyone else, and the only one who does is the blind man, but that’s short lived. Then there’s crazy-ass Doctor Pretorius, who’s somehow made little…

You’re freaks. I’m a man. The last man. Dr. Robert Morgan The Last Man on Earth (1964) is the first adaptation of Richard Matheson’s novel, I Am Legend. And as far as I can remember, I have not seen this film before, nor, I should add, have I read the book. I’ve seen I Am…

The final in the Corman-Poe films is The Tomb of Ligeia (1964), and my least favorite of the series. It felt like Vincent was held back from his normal performances of dramatic shock and awe. It’s not to say there weren’t great things in this movie. I loved Elizabeth Shepherd playing the roles of Rowena…

I don’t remember seeing The Masque of the Red Death (1964) before now, which is a little surprising to me. As I watch, I’m riveted with the boldness of professing to be a Satan worshipper. I wonder how many good Christians jumped from their seats in the theatre and rushed out, demanding a refund. Vincent…

Like the Raven, The Haunted Palace (1963) was touted as being from Poe, while it does have the title and a few lines at the end of the movie, it is again, not Poe. But it doesn’t matter, it’s a great movie. It’s darker with little comedic influence, which is probably due to the fact…
