Nope. Still Not Dead.

Although I do need to get a bunch of repair work done on my left knee…

 

Child’s Play (1988), in which getting the thing you want most for your birthday kind of sucks sometimes…

Madman (1980), which completes the informal trilogy of early-80’s slasher flicks rooted, to one extent or another, in the legend of Cropsey…

She (1935), in which a more relatable Leo Vincey has an altogether less reprehensible reason to venture into the kingdom of She Who Must Be Obeyed…

She (1965), in which She Who Must Be Obeyed goes looking for Leo Vincey for once…

and…

Trick or Treat (1986), a movie I’d certainly have included in my Satanic Panic theme update a few years ago, if only I’d been able to remember what it was called.

    It’s a certain four-letter word

    The Hard WordYou’ll have plenty of hard words to say if you are unlucky enough to watch the Australian heist movie The Hard Word.

      I duke it out with Duke

      BillieAn enthusiastic cast populates the comedy Billie, and their energy almost makes up for the fact that the script they are working with isn’t all that funny.

        “Amityville: The Awakening” Hits Snooze Again; Rolls Over and Goes Back to Sleep


        THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

        In what’s got to be the most frustrating piece of B-movie news in a long time, it’s been announced that the new (if a movie that’s been sitting on the shelf since late 2014 can be called “new”) Amityville movie has been pulled from release yet again. It was originally scheduled to be released at the end of June, but is now on indefinite hold.

        My guess is we’ll be able to see this movie’s eventual remake long before we get to see the actual movie.

        Will Laughlin is the Braineater.

          The real mafia

          The Nickel RideA downbeat but compelling look into society’s criminal underbelly, The Nickel Ride is a drama that is ripe for rediscovery.

            THE CREEPING FLESH (1973)

            …finds Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee playing half-brothers, both scientists: the latter the head of a mental hospital, who finds in his patients an excellent source of experimental subjects; the former a biologist and anthropologist who discovers a skeleton which he believes could be the key to freeing the world of evil.

            You may be surprised to learn who the villain is…

              An “A” list B movie

              Red Sun RisingEverybody in front of and behind the camera in Red Sun Rising obviously worked very hard, and the result is a solid actioner.

                Full house


                House Of The Long ShadowsYou are probably asking: If House Of The Long Shadows has in its cast John Carradine, Peter Cushing, Vincent Price, and Christopher Lee, why is it so obscure? Well, the four stars are in fine shape, but the rest of the movie…

                  .

                  THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN (1957)

                  Some serious science fiction from Hammer about a scientist who joins an expedition searching for the legendary Yeti, and ends up finding a lot more than he expected…

                  Scripted by Nigel Kneale, this low-key, thoughtful drama has much to say about Mankind’s place in the world and his claim to be the dominant species—finally concluding (as if we ever doubted it) that Home sapiens really, really sucks…

                    Gangsters, Dinosaurs, and Naked Girls

                    A trio of updates.

                    NAKED GIRL KILLED IN THE PARK
                    Guest writer Miguel Rodriguez says, “After some scenes of seduction and intrigue, Chris manages to get invited to a quiet weekend at the family villa in the country. It becomes clear that the set pieces of the amusement park and now the Spanish villa are the reasons for making this film. The locations are beautiful and ripe for filming and populating with gorgeous people. Add to the cast two servants and a voyeuristic mute stable boy and you start to have the eccentric group needed for an honest-to-god Giallo. Unfortunately, Brescia’s film neglects the base titillation and stylishly surreal nihilism of proper Gialli in favor of absurd family soap opera dramatics.”
                    KING KONG
                    A little late for “No, Not THAT One,” but still…Little time is wasted before the thrills commence, and with the entrance of an agitated group of soldiers we learn of a fearsome creature that is terrorizing the countryside. Hingoo dispatches King Kong, his personal strongman, to deal with the beast, and with that we cut to what will probably be the biggest surprise for any seasoned Bollywood viewer having his or her first introduction to the stunt film genre. It’s an honest-to-goodness man-in-a-suit giant monster, in this case looking like a cross between a dinosaur, a giant cow and a wild boar and which breathes steam out of its giant, flaring nostrils for good measure.
                    CRUEL GUN STORY
                    Cruel Gun Story tells the story of Togawa, a con who is sprung from prison early via the machinations of a mysterious underworld kingpin who communicates with him through an emissary, a former mob lawyer named Ito. Ito and his boss want Togawa to carry out a robbery that they’ve planned, involving an armored car shipment of racetrack receipts worth 120 million yen, and have hand selected a crew of four men to assist him in the task.
