The City of the Dead
August 6, 2020

It always amazes me how many movies have different names in different parts of the world; it seems like it’d be so confusing for the producers and more expensive to have two. Today, I’m talking about one of those movies The City of the Dead (UK)/Horror Hotel (US) (1960). After seeing this film, I have…

Oh, the cheese, the glorious cheese, how I yearn for your touch. Parasite (1982), if anything else, is a cheese-fest. The setting is a post-apocalyptic USA, where using Styrofoam burger boxes is apparently the rage in decorating. I wasn’t sure if they were Big Mac or Whopper containers, it’s been so long since they used…

Diary of a Madman
July 2, 2020

I find it surprising that Diary of a Madman (1963) isn’t an American International Pictures film, the style is very similar, but it does star Vincent Price. This film is based on Guy de Maupassant’s short stories Le Horla and Un fou. It was also advertised as “The most terrifying motion picture ever created!” I’ve…

Queen of Blood
June 25, 2020

In Queen of Blood (1966) American International Pictures gives a strange futuristic world set in 1991 where we have the International Institute of Space Technology on the Moon, and we travel to Mars-like it’s no big deal. The Science Fiction aspects of the film remind of the original Star Trek TV series with echoing squeals…

Another movie with an identity crisis. Is it Full Circle (1977) or The Haunting of Julia (1981)? I guess it doesn’t matter, I just find it annoying. Anyway, it’s based on Peter Straub’s novel, Julia. Mia Farrow is Julia Lofting, whose daughter chokes to death on a piece of apple, so what does she do?…

The Haunted
May 7, 2020

In 1991 FOX aired The Haunted. I didn’t have a TV at the time, and I was a little busy doing other things, so I didn’t see it then or know about it. In recent years, while reading about Ed and Lorraine Warren, I learned about this made for TV gem. It’s a strange little…

Pale Blood banner

Sometimes I wonder why I watch the movies that I watch, then I find a fun gem like Pale Blood (1990), and I’m thankful for my slumming around with low budget vampire films. I’m not saying this movie is perfect, but it’s great nonetheless. In the beginning, George Chakiris, who plays Michael Fury, is stiff…

Highway to Hell (1992) is a movie I would’ve expected from 1983 or 1987, reminding me of some of my favorite post-apocalyptic films like Cherry 2000 (1987) or Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983), or even any of the original three Mad Max movies. The soundtracks are even similar as is the location. Hidden…
