    Nothing to get in a flap about

    The Bat PeopleThe horror movie The Bat People makes the idea of a human turning into a monster surprisingly boring.

      Some roundtables are harder than they look

      When “Were-WHAT?” came up as the next B-Masters roundtable topic, my immediate reaction was, “Oh, no…” Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fun topic. But off-model lycanthropy is so much fun that it’s been one of my go-to subgenres for eighteen years. I’ve done were-cats; I’ve done were-snakes; I’ve done were-bugs. The whole cabal did were-jellyfish in 2009. I’ve even done a were-Gorgon, plus that one movie where Raymond Burr thinks he’s a were-gorilla. So it was a real challenge to come up with a were-whatsit weird enough to be worthy of the present undertaking. I think you’ll agree, though, that a vampiric were-reindeer amply fits the bill. And as is my wont, I reviewed a bunch of other stuff, too:

      Alligator (1980), in which dumping unwanted baby alligators and hormone-contaminated dog carcasses into the same sewer is a stupid thing to do…

      Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb (1971), in which storing the preserved body of an ancient sorceress in your basement isn’t a whole lot smarter…

      Carmilla (1989), in which taking on a teenage vampire as a houseguest might be the dumbest thing of all…

      Deadly Games (1980), in which a slasher tears through the setting of a 70’s prime-time soap opera that never was…

      The Flesh and the Fiends (1959), in which those anatomy class cadavers have to come from somewhere

      Halloween II (1981), in which the Boogeyman gets demoted…

      The Phantom (1931), in which a bunch of weary old Spooky House cliches go on an insane Xanax-and-Thunderbird bender, and wind up passed out under your back porch…

      and…

      The Velvet Vampire (1971), in which the director of The Student Nurses practices her Jean Rollin impression.

        Sexy slithering!

         

        …just not enough of it, alas.

         

         

         

         

        THE REPTILE (1966)

        …in which an officious Brit sticks his nose into one “primitive Eastern religion” too many…though of course it isn’t him who pays the price…

         

        I have also transferred over Cult Of The Cobra (1955) and The Snake Woman (1961).

            Animaniacs

             

            Sure, we all love a good werewolf film; but why should wolves have all the fun? Besides, let’s face it, when it comes to the beasts within—it’s a jungle in there…

            So join us as we take a look at a few of the other rampaging alter-egos hidden behind the unconvincing fa├žade of Homo sapiens:
             


            It’s WERE-WHAT?—all through November (and likely December) at the B-Masters’ Blog.

                A hellish experience

                Fear No EvilHigh school is already hell on earth, which is one reason why Fear No Evil – concerning the Antichrist doing his thing in teenage form – mostly falls flat.

                  Spying is and isn’t kiddie stuff here

                  Cloak & DaggerThe family movie Cloak & Dagger is very rough in tone at times, but is well done enough to make it worth a look for you and your kids.
