Via The Rusy Soapbox-Child’s Play (2019) Review – It’s Not Better than the Original

OK, I know I’m about seven months too late to the party but as ever, I’m jogging behind the bandwagon and shouting my opinions at people who I’m pretty sure don’t care. However, the ‘Chucky’ franchise is one of my favourite horror franchises and I think it doesn’t get enough credit. For a start, a […]

Via We Minored in Film-Oscars 2020: Ranking the Best Picture Nominees

Since 1927, over 600 films have been nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. I’d estimate we’ve already forgotten at least half of those movies. Probably more, really. (Come at me in the comments with your best defense of, picking at random, 1941 nominee One Foot in Heaven.) Partially, that’s on us since it is a […]

Via B&S About Movies -Holocaust 2000 (1977)

Of all the things the devil’s done, I wonder exactly how he was able to get Kirk Douglas — KIRK DOUGLAS! — to be in an Alberto De Martino ripoff of The Omen? I mean, this is the same director who made The Antichrist and Miami Golem! What horrifying secrets does the First of the Fallen have to […]

Produced and directed by Roger Corman, this movie was originally a double feature with Beast from Haunted Cave.

I Love the Night: 1979’s Dracula and Sepulchral Seduction — VHS Revival

The 1970s was a curious time for the world’s most famous vampire, Count Dracula, who was originally created by Bram Stoker in his classic 1897 novel of the same name. Despite ruling the screen for over a decade thanks to Christopher Lee’s iconic turn, Hammer’s incarnation of the character had now been exhausted to the point where, for their last three outings, he had been depicted as savaging London’s modern-day, hot-pants wearing youth, going undercover as an estate agent (!!!) and, rather wonderfully, stumbling into the martial arts genre. Elsewhere, the character had undergone Blaxploitation overhauls in Blacula and its sequel Scream, Blacula, Scream, and had entered the wilfully tragi-comic arena of the absurd with Paul Morrissey and Andy Warhol’s Blood for Dracula.
