I took a week off, but we’re back. The “right side” of the original bracket is decided: Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965) has beat out all the competition over there, especially I Drink Your Blood (1970); She-Devils On Wheels (1968); Blacula (1972); and Ilsa, She-Devil of the SS (1975), which Faster took on directly. This week, we wrap on the “Left Side” conference pitting twoContinue reading “Grindhouse Brackets 8: Championship-Eve”

Grindhouse Brackets 7: The Final Five?
We’ve arrived, after a fashion, at our final five films, as chosen mainly by you. I say “mainly,” because one match-up that had originally ended up in a tie was re-competed, and ended up in a tie once again. To keep things moving along, I’ve made an executive decision in favor of one film. Somehow, IContinue reading “Grindhouse Brackets 7: The Final Five?”
Grindhouse Brackets 6: The Elite 8-and-a-Half!

Grindhouse Brackets 5: On to the Sweet 16!
At this point, we’ve eliminated half of the films we started with, and have arrived at our Sweet 16! But before we get to that story, I have to go over this story–how Match-Up 4 shook out. This Story Match-up 4 had about half the votes of 3, which is fine, and here’s how it all wentContinue reading “Grindhouse Brackets 5: On to the Sweet 16!”

Link Dump: Mid-Late October
It’s time for another good-sized roundup of good movie reviews from the tweeps. Love how you folks are keeping exploitation and B-movies in circulation. With a good-sized H/T to Cultural Gutter, I saw this interesting post on TV criticism vs. TV recapping, among other things. I liked it because it gives voice to what I’m tryingContinue reading “Link Dump: Mid-Late October”
