The Mysterious Monsters (1975)

“This may be the most startling film you’ll ever see.” Coming from the authoritative tones of Peter Graves, surely this has to be taken seriously. Perhaps Graves’ work here as a narrator […]

The Centerfold Girls (1974)

I wouldn’t exactly term this as the ideal “date movie.” Especially when practically every male character in the film is either an ass or a pervert. Or in the case of Aldo […]

Avalanche (1978)

With Irwin Allen laying claim to most of the natural disasters that make for explosive cinema, producer Roger Corman once again takes a popular theme and grabs a piece of […]

The People That Time Forgot (1977)

Director Kevin Connor was once again enlisted to bring the stone age world of Edgar Rice Burrough’s lost continent to life in this wild tale of Patrick Wayne following the trail […]

The Land That Time Forgot (1974)

Like every generation of movie lovers, there’s bound to be some films from your early years that you know would be frowned upon by today’s crowds. Movies that hold a […]

Sunday In the Country (1974)

Having located a copy of this film on DVD under the secondary title it’s known as, Vengeance Is Mine, has allowed me to see a flick I recall would play […]

Rogue Male (1977)

Let’s not focus on comparing this Peter O’Toole starring effort with that of the earlier version from Fritz Lang featuring Walter Pidgeon in 1941’s Man Hunt. It just wouldn’t seem […]

Portrait of a Hitman (1979)

Yes it’s a “B” actioner and made on the cheap but that doesn’t stop me from liking this flick that’s perfect fodder for my sense of low budget fun. Not to […]

Ten Little Indians (1974)

No this isn’t the acclaimed 1945 version from director Rene Clair starring two of the great scene stealers of that decade in Barry Fitzgerald and Walter Huston, what it does represent […]

Posse (1975)

The iconic film star, Kirk Douglas, only directed two movies in his lengthy career, the first was a misfire titled Scalawag in 1973, the second being this off kilter western that plays […]

bank-shot-half-sheet

Bank Shot (1974)

Sporting perhaps the bushiest set of eyebrows worn by what I would call one of the more macho actors of his generation, George C. Scott lands above the title billing for the lead role […]

8-bells-half-sheet

When Eight Bells Toll (1971)

“All hell let’s loose when eight bells toll.” New to me thanks to a Kino Lorber release on blu ray is this Alistair MacLean penned adventure featuring a young Anthony Hopkins in a James […]

naschy-as-dracula

Count Dracula’s Great Love (1973)

With a story and screenplay credited to Jacinto Molina, Paul Naschy once again adds another of the classic monsters to his bag of tricks. Horror film buffs will of course […]
