2015 Wrap-Up: My Top Five List
Couple things on the wrap-up this year: first I can say that in 2015 I watched an even 70 films. By no means am I a “power-watcher” of movies, quality over quantity, or said another way: I have a day job. And kids. And I’m usually tired by the time I get a chance. BeforeContinue reading “2015 Wrap-Up: My Top Five List”
Horror/B-Movie Roundup, Disembodied Head Edition
A roundup of what I’ve watched, read or listened to lately: Thankfully, no Exorcist remake is coming. (H/T Horror-Movies.ca!) Projection Booth #144 on “The Brain That Wouldn’t Die” (1962). I loved the part of the episode that one commenter dismissed as “psychobabble” about this film being a reflection of the male Id of that era, how the legacy ofContinue reading “Horror/B-Movie Roundup, Disembodied Head Edition”
The Devil Rides Out (1968)
I wrote about this one about a year-ish ago here, fwiw.

Flick of the Week: Witchfinder General (1968)
Premiered in US on August 14, 1968, after opening in the UK three months earlier. Also known as The Conqueror Worm. Vincent Price’s favorite of his horror roles–which nearly went to Donald Pleasence. Final film for director Michael Reeves, who died in 1969 at the age of 25. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x29ovr8_witchfinder-general-1968_shortfilms

Grindhouse Brackets 6: The Elite 8-and-a-Half!
This week something happened in Match-Up 6 that I had not anticipated: a tie. So, we’ll re-compete that one (Day the Earth Stood Still vs. Black Sunday). Also, the first shut-outs of our competition so far! Here’s how it shook out last week: Day the Earth Stood Still–1 vote (50%) Black Sunday (this week’s “Movie of theContinue reading “Grindhouse Brackets 6: The Elite 8-and-a-Half!”
60 Years of Godzilla Trailers!
To celebrate the release of the highly anticipated Godzilla film this weekend, here are the trailers of 29 previous Toho films. I don’t include non-Toho films here, especially the highly-despised 1998 Matthew Broderick version, and I’m not a kaiju-guru enough to know if this list is complete. But it at least gets us a good startContinue reading “60 Years of Godzilla Trailers!”
