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. The place is about to be converted into a movie house, and the last performance before the conversion has only attracted a whopping 18 people. On top of that, he’s been disrespected […]

Horror Express (1973)

AKA Pánico en el TransiberianoAKA Panic on the Trans-Siberian Express Ah ha! Now we’re talking, TCM! After the dud that was She Freak this was a breath of fresh air. Don’t show me bland grindhouse remakes. Show me campy and fun horror and science fiction hybrids instead. I like those. It’s 1906 on some god-forsaken mountaintop […]

Haxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages (1922)

Ah, yes, a silent horror movie that has nothing to do with Dracula. All you silent movie haters may now flee or stay and be educated. Haxan examines the nature of witchcraft, witches, and those who sought to destroy both. It’s a bit odd as it’s part documentary, part dramatization. The first is done through […]

Hausu (1977)

AKA: House This is yet another gem that I discovered thanks to late-night viewings of TCM. I sat down for something they classified as horror, and instead I was treated to something that was a bizarre mix of horror, comedy, and action all mixed together to form some psychedelic, epileptic-inducing explosion of Japanese cinema. And, […]

She Freak (1967)

TCM showed She Freak some time ago. I watched it then, but admittedly, my attention really wasn’t on it. I don’t remember what it was I was doing, but whatever it was it was more important than the movie. Anyway, when it showed back up in the schedule I was happy to sit down and give […]
