It’s been an… odd couple of weeks here at Casa del Santo.  Can-can dancers have a way of showing up in the damnedest places:

Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957), in which scientists stranded in Southern California– er, I mean, on a romote South Pacific island– are stalked by giant, brain-eating land crabs…

Bare Behind Bars (1980), in which we learn that Brazilian women’s prison movies are sort of like Brazilian Mardi Gras– weirder, raunchier, and more obsessively stylized than everybody else’s…

The Bowery at Midnight (1942), in which somebody looks to have decided halfway through shooting a crime programmer that they’d really rather be making a horror flick instead…

The Clairvoyant (1934), in which a phony psychic accidentally discovers that his powers are real after all, and that turns out to be about as much fun as such things usually are in the movies…

Cry of the Werewolf (1944), in which you might as well just watch Cat People instead…

Fairy Tales (1978), in which the Handsome Prince will understandably settle for nothing less than Linnea Quigley…

The Mistress of Atlantis (1932), in which the world’s most famous lost civilization isn’t remotely where you’d think it would be, and its immortal sorceress-queen has an origin story you’ll never believe even after you’ve seen it…

and…

Salon Kitty (1976), in which Heinrich Himmler goes BIG PIMPIN’.
