The Kidnapping of the President (1979)

Returning to his homeland, William Shatner stars in this interesting “what if” Canadian production where he actually plays an American secret service agent in charge of rescuing President Hal Holbrook […]

Final Chapter : Walking Tall (1977)

Bo Svenson is once again cast as Buford Pusser in the third film of the seventies trilogy that sees a Tennessee lawman fight for justice while at the same time […]

The Omega Man (1971)

When number 2 son Kirk suggested we watch the recent blu ray I had picked up of The Omega Man to replace my DVD copy there was really only one […]

Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde (1976)

Joining the ranks of Blacula and Blackenstein comes this variation on the famed Stevenson novel. Arguably better than Blackenstein it’s no where near as enjoyable as Blacula where William Marshall […]

Night Slaves (1970)

This made for television film from the Bing Crosby production wing and director Ted Post plays like an extended Twilight Zone episode that has stayed with me for years. I […]

Shout at the Devil (1976)

This rollicking adventure film features a rather odd pairing of cinematic stars. Lee Marvin and Roger Moore. At times you might say it’s Lee Marvin vs. Roger Moore. Especially when […]

Island of the Fishmen (1979)

A guilty pleasure I’ll surely watch again when the opportunity presents itself. Equal parts, Voodoo, Dr. Moreau, Atlantis, Sunken treasure, Mad Scientist, Mutations, Greedy Villain, Barbara Bach, Giant Fishmen and […]

The Sell Out (1976)

I find that quite often while reading a biography of an actor or actress I start scanning the movie shelves for something to watch. As I am now reading Robert […]

Sorcerer (1977)

William Friedkin’s title can’t help but conjure up images of a horror film. And why not? The man gave us The Exorcist. While this remake of the 1953 French film […]

Werewolves on Wheels (1971)

I can already hear you thinking, “How can Mike pay tribute to a film like Bad Day at Black Rock one day and an unbelievable title like this the next?” […]

Support Your Local Gunfighter (1971)

James Garner returns for this follow up in name only to the 1969 hit Support Your Local Sheriff. Many of the cast members are reunited from the previous Burt Kennedy […]

The Creeping Flesh (1972)

Every now and then I love to go back and re-visit a pairing of horror cinema’s dynamic duo, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. This Freddie Francis directed thriller was released […]

Voyage of the Damned (1976)

This story of the SS St.Louis leaving Germany in May of 1939 with over 900 passengers of Jewish decent gives director Stuart Rosenberg the opportunity to work with close to […]

Company of Killers (1971)

It would seem that this was a made for tv film that received a theatrical release after all. Somewhat like Don Siegel’s remake of The Killers from 1964 which starred […]
