  • #30DaysofTerror #1FromTheVaults #HorrorComedy The Comedy of Terrors (1963)

    The Comedy of Terrors

    Horror Comedy can either be good or bad, for the 16th day of 30 Days of Terror, I chose to talk about a classic, produced by American International Pictures and filled with a star-studded cast. For whatever reason American International Pictures designated The Comedy of Terrors (1963) as horror comedy. I didn’t find any scary […]

  • Classic #Thriller – The House of a Thousand Dolls (1967)

    The House of a Thousand Dolls (1967) is touted as American International Pictures sleaziest film, and I guess for the time it was, but by today’s standards it’s not. This is one of my least favorite AIP Vincent Price movies. The idea is great, but the layer of suspense isn’t as strong as their other […]

  • #TBT #HorrorMovie Review – House on Haunted Hill (1959)

    House On Haunted Hill

    Would you like to see one of those heads? Nora Manning House on Haunted Hill (1959) starts with screams and demented laughter, then disembodied heads floating through the air, introducing the movie and the characters, which reminded me of an Agatha Christie book. I loved it from the first sequence, how is it possible not […]

  • Vincent Price’s Birthday

    Vincent Price is my favorite actor, and to honor his birthday, I’ve decided to tell you about a few of his movies that I find exceptional. The simplicity of The Bat (1959) makes it strong. Even the one effect is stupendous; really, I’m not making fun of it. I wonder if they tried to get a […]

  • #BMovie – The Last Man on Earth (1964)

    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 […]

  • #BMovie #DoubleFeature – Dr. Phibes

    The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) has one of the strangest openings I’ve ever seen. Now I admit, there are movies today that I’ve reviewed that I hate because incoherent things that happen, and maybe I should give them a break because like this movie, it makes no sense or maybe I’m expecting more of movies […]

  • #BMovies #CormanPoe Part 8 – The Tomb of Ligeia (1964)

    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 […]

  • #BMovies #CormanPoe Part 7 – The Masque of the Red Death (1964)

    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 […]
