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

DISASTROUS DOUBLE FEATURE: “Dr. X” (1932) / “Return of Dr. X” (1939)

In 1932, movies weren’t exactly, shall we say, under as many censorship rules as they are today.  There wasn’t a rating system, the Hayes Code wasn’t in effect yet, and so long as the flick didn’t show anything that you … Continue reading

TUES 12: What I Learned from Watching “Une Vierge chez les Morts Vivants” (a.k.a A Virgin Among the Living Dead; Christina, Princesse de l’Erotisme (Christina, Princess of Eroticism); La nuit des étoiles filantes (The Night of Shooting Stars)), 1972

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Psychomania” (1973)

Now here is a movie that makes my ever-loving bad cinema heart sing.  We have a 1970’s motorcycle group made up of very well-leathered British thugs (you know, the polite kind of thugs) who decide that being called “The Living Dead” wasn’t … Continue reading
