The Shark Hunter (1979)

Every now and then I need to forgo the Hollywood studio production and just wallow around in the tradition of what is commonly known and marketed as exploitation cinema. This […]

Love and Bullets (1979)

Throughout the seventies Charles Bronson had been a busy action star appearing in an average of two to three films per year. After Telefon, The White Buffalo and Raid on […]

Crossed Swords (1977)

If ever a film springs to life when Oliver Reed is on the screen it just might be this Richard Fleischer directed version of The Prince and the Pauper. For […]

Sitting Target (1972)

This gritty gangland flick gives us something of a “what if” when it comes to seeing Oliver Reed as a modern gangster in seventies London. It’s a perfect bit of […]

The Brood (1979)

David Cronenberg meets the ferocious whispering of Oliver Reed. To start my mini fest of Oliver Reed films I thought it best to start with a film he made right […]

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?” […]
