DREAM NO EVIL (1970)

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Entertaining, spooky yarn about a voluptuous red-head and her vengeful father.

MIL SEXOS TIENE LA NOCHE (1984)

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

Classic mid-80’s Jess Franco Effort that would be of interest to even those non-Franco completists amongst us. (All his expected themes of lust and delirium are in abundance here.)

NIGHTWING (1979)

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010
‘Nightwing’ is a rather nifty Vampire bats on the rampage offering; which is given an extra ballast of genre gravitas by starring a humourless, perma-stooped David Warner as a vengeful Vampire bat exterminator (As if there could be any other kind!). Sadly there doesn’t appear to be that much love for this quality be-winged monster mash, which is rather odd since Hiller does fine sturdy work here, and Mancini’s score is wonderful.

Just got a better version of this unheralded Neo-Gothic masterpiece!

YOU’LL LIKE MY MOTHER (TV) (1972)

Friday, December 10th, 2010

Absolutely stunning Neo-Gothic potboiler with exceptional performances from Patty Duke and Rosemary Murphy; in my humble opinion this is far, far superior to hammer’s ‘Die, Die my Darling’ (the latter being no slouch as well!)

SHE WAITS (TV) (1972)

Friday, December 10th, 2010

Solid 70’s TV spookshow from Delbert Mann. Starring the impossibly cute and perky Patty Duke. (#swoon#)

SCHIZOID (1980)

Friday, December 10th, 2010

Obscuroid 80’s slasher with Herzog’s bestest chum Klaus Kinski.

BLOOD (1974)

Friday, December 10th, 2010

Suitably hysterical vampire offering from the inimitable Andy Milligan; and one not to be missed!

DEAR DEAD DELILAH (1972)

ARANAS INFERNALES (1968)

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Classic Blue Demon escapade!
