Twice-Told Tales
April 1, 2021

Twice-Told Tales (1963) is based on three of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s stories. Based on the film, I’m surprised that American International Pictures wasn’t involved, but it was United Artists. While it carries the name of his anthology of the same name, only Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment is from the anthology. Vincent Price takes the lead in all…

American Gothic
March 25, 2021

And if you’re really, really good, well, you might just get a brand new dolly. American Gothic (1988) isn’t a bad film, but there’s not much to say about it. At times, I watch a movie, and when it’s done, I just don’t know what to say about it. There are so many aspects of…

The Funhouse
December 17, 2020

The Funhouse (1981) is a movie that I’d never heard of until recently, and I thought I’d seen most of the 80s horror. It is like many slasher films of the time with a lot of suspense building. In fact, this one takes quite a long time to get going, like many made in recent…

The Beast With 1,000,000 Eyes
November 5, 2020

Sci-Fi Horror is always a great combination for me, and when Roger Corman directs it for American International Pictures, I’m pleased as punch. The Beast With 1,000,000 Eyes (1955) is one of those films that by the end of it I was wondering what the fuck I just watched. It has Dick Sargent (the second…

Ghoulies
October 29, 2020

I’m not sure why they named this Ghoulies (1985), it seems Satanic Pets or something like that would be more fitting. The Ghoulies themselves don’t really play much in the film besides filler. Had they done something more exciting like Gremlins, maybe, this would’ve been better. And just think, there’s a total of four in…

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…

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…

October 1, 2020

Lady in White (1988) is based on the urban legend of the Lady in White; no duh. It has the “Derry” feel or any of the King stories with kids and small towns – It, Silver Bullet, Stand By Me. Should I go on? – Too bad it isn’t as good. The story is narrated…
