Well, partly anyway.  I’d already reviewed most of this year’s lineup, so I’ve padded the update with a couple of other things.  I imagine you’ll see at once which two are the odd reviews out.

 

Castle of Blood (1964), in which betting a ghost’s landlord your ass is just as bad an idea as betting the Devil your head…

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (2010), in which being afraid of the dark is exactly the thing that one ought to do…

I, Monster (1971), in which Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde dare not speak their names for some unfathomable reason, even though John Lanyon and Frederick Utterson have no such compunctions…

Island of the Doomed (1967), in which some people simply never learn about sticking their noses into a mad scientist’s business…

and…

The Stepmother (1971), in which half the audience spend half the film wondering when they’ll get to the not-quite-incest, and half the audience will spend the other half of the film wondering when that detective will finally get around to busting the protagonist for murdering his client.
