31 Days of Halloween 2017 #1 – Jigsaw (2017)

Jigsaw is back.  Nuff said.  Or is he?  That’s the number one mystery selling this movie, because it certainly isn’t the gore, plot or atmosphere.  And this is not the first time a… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween – The New Glow-in-the-Dark Godzilla (2016)

The new Toho, glow-in-the-dark Godzilla is different from any previous version of the famous monster.  This time it’s a complete movie, not a superficial wham-bam action cartoon, and it’s got plenty of themes to… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #28 Monster Squad is 80s

I’m not I agree with critics who say Monster Squad (1987) is a B-Movie, but it sure is a product of its time.  This movie is like Goonies with young kids chasing after… Continue reading

SHIN Godzilla (2016) Trailer

The Japanese Godzilla movies by Toho are getting a reboot in October and the trailer looks pretty darn good to be honest.  The movie looks like it centers around the Godzilla attack from… Continue reading

90 Minute Movies: Attack of the 50ft Woman

Attack of the 50 foot Woman (1958) is a cult classic, and has more than at first glance, which is great fodder for my tastes.  This movie is your typical 50s monster movie, where… Continue reading

There’s Aliens Outside, Let’s Hide in the Basement

How many times have movie characters hidden in the basement, away from alien invaders?  I’m not sure, but a hell of a lot.  It’s not an original concept, but 10 Cloverfield Lane makes… Continue reading

The origin story of The Wolf Man

The Wolf Man (1941) is one of the original Universal monster classics that paints Lycanthropy as a trick of the mind.  Larry Talbot returns to his ancestral home and uncovers the legend of… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 7 – The Howling is social commentary too

The Howling (1981) by Joe Dante has some biting social commentary, pun intended.  This is a werewolf movie and has elements of a thriller, a mystery, and a horror movie.  Someone told me… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 3 – Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb

Leonard Maltin was apathetic in review of The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb (1964), but I think Hammer films produced a good-looking film and it dishes out horror, with a side order of allegory.  This… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2: Dracula Has Risen

In Dracula Has Risen From the Grave (1970), Dracula does what he does best, and rises from the grave to drink brightly colored fake blood.  This movie follows the Dracula continuity from previous sequels,… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 1: Frankenstein and the monster from HELL

Frankenstein and the Monster from HELL (all caps) (1974) starts my October Halloween review season. This 1974 movie is underrated, but has the worst reputation of any Hammer horror film I’ve ever read… Continue reading

The Monster and the Girl – Hiding Prostitution

A man is convicted for a crime he didn’t commit, and submits to an experiment to have his mind put into the body of an ape, which is all part of a trip… Continue reading

Godzilla Remix: Ebirah, Horror From the Deep

Never say never, but I am going to review the crap out of Ebirah, Horror from the Deep, the original Japanese version of Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster.  I actually like this movie,… Continue reading

Jack Pierce designs The Werewolf of London

Werewolf of London (1935) was filmed six years before The Wolf Man (1941), but make-up artist and design champ Jack Pierce perfected his craft on this film.  The designs in this film were re-used on in… Continue reading

Frankenstein and the Wolf-Man dance and sing

Frankenstein Meets the Wolf-Man was released in 1943, setting a precedent for the almighty cash-grab in the form of the ensemble monster movie.  This was Universal’s first chance to throw together more than… Continue reading
