MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht” (1979)

Look, I’m just going to say it.  I don’t get Werner Herzog.  I don’t get Herzog like I don’t get Fellini, like I don’t get Warhol, like I don’t get Eraserhead.  God knows I’ve tried.  I’ve seen Fellini’s 8 1/2 one … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Disco Godfather” (1979)

  Oh Lord above, it’s a Blaxploitation flick from 1979.  The flares are bigger, the bling is blingy-er, and the sweet ladies are sweeter than Sweet Momma Stringbean in Crow T. Robot’s seminal script for Chocolate Jones and the Temple … Continue reading

MOVIE MINI-REVIEW: “Neither the Sea nor the Sand” (aka “The Exorcism of Hugh”, 1972)

This flick was made from the book of the same name written by Gordon Honeycombe, proving once again that everyone has a novel lurking in them (be it good or bad — The Twilight series is proof of this).  Anna … Continue reading

TUES 12: What I Learned from Watching “Macabre” (aka “Frozen Terror”, 1980)

1. Saying “This Movie is Based on Real Events” when your movie takes place in New Orleans means you can get away with just about any damn thing you please. 2.   Any self-respecting wife and mother will rent a well-appointed apartment in … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Maniac” (1963)

Back before Hammer films discovered Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing to become various vampires, mad doctors, and Rasputin, they churned out a number of “thriller” movies in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.  These movies tended to have a decent … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Mind Snatchers” (aka “The Happiness Cage”, 1972)

This movie is based on Dennis Reardon’s play The Happiness Cage, which had the distinction of being the inaugural production of the Joseph Papp Public Theater.  I think I would have rather seen this story as a play, despite Christopher … Continue reading
