This dead man’s chest is dead, man

ScalawagKirk Douglas not only starred in Scalawag, he also directed and co-wrote it. And… well, let’s just say that it’s unlikely that even the incredibly prolific Kino Lorber video label will give this a stateside disc release any time soon.

I Don’t Normally Do Halloween Updates…

…because, well, how would you tell the difference anyway? Nevertheless, this particular crop of reviews accidentally ended up being pretty close to a normal person’s idea of what might be appropriate to the season:

 

Count Dracula (1970), in which Harry Alan Towers and Jesus Franco try to con us all into believing they’ve made the Most Faithful Dracula Movie Ever, but the only person they fool is Christopher Lee…

House of the Long Shadows (1983), in which the surviving Horror Geezers gather in a spooky old house to be stalked-and-slashed like a pack of horny teenagers…

The Living Skeleton (1968), in which we begin with watery ghosts, but end with sheer madness…

and…

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1968), in which Jack Palance sucks even worse than usual, but strangely doesn’t hurt the movie much by doing so.

 

 

 El Santo rules the wasteland-- and also 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting.

Could be called a time slip
