Portrait of Jennie (1948)

Yet another gift brought to you by TCM. It should be noted that is aired at 8pm, not my usual 2am viewing time, so the quality of this film is quite a bit better than some of the other write-ups I do with the ‘cult’ films TCM airs in the wee hours of the morning. […]

Blood Theatre (1984)

AKA: Movie House Massacre The final night of a downtrodden theatre in the 1930s (?) isn’t going so well for the theatre owner.
