The Cassandra Crossing (1976)

This star studded flick feeds into my love of the disaster movie where we the viewers get to play spot the star while awaiting the final reel to see who is going […]

Corky (1972)

For my viewing habits, I’d say this is a rather obscure title that I happened to catch on a late night TCM showing. Not being a racing car enthusiast has […]

The Devil’s Wedding Night (1973)

Sure I often refer to the western as my favorite genre and go to films of choice but there is something to be said for these sleazy Eurotrash productions of […]

Al Lettieri versus The Icons Part 2

The two films I saw more frequently than any other growing up featuring Al Lettieri pitted him against two of the actors I’ve always numbered among my favorites. One the King […]

Dogs (1976)

Sporting a very shaggy dog look himself or a bad imitation of Moe Howard, in need of a haircut and shave, leading man David McCallum is pitted against man’s best […]

Murph the Surf (1975)

aka Live a Little, Steal a Lot This is one of those seventies flicks that feel as though they were a made for TV project that morphed into a theatrical […]

Last Embrace (1979)

The source novel, The 13th Man becomes an homage to Hitchcock in the hands of  Jonathan Demme during the mystery that unravels for star player Roy Scheider. A thriller featuring the […]

The Police Connection (1973)

aka The Mad Bomber   Director Bert I. Gordon forgoes monsters of Colossal proportions to bring this shower inducing cop movie that features two separate psychotics whose paths will cross […]

The Domino Principle (1977)

Generally regarded as a weak film in the careers of all those involved, let’s look at the fact that this Stanley Kramer film allows some heavyweight talent to share the […]

The End (1978)

Back in the good old days when Burt Reynolds was one of the leading contenders for the industry’s box office champ, he starred in and directed this black comedy that […]

The California Kid (1974)

An actor such as Martin Sheen is a great example of someone who has been on television screens for as long as I can recall and of course he still […]

The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)

Black humor rules the day when Vincent Price stars in one of his most memorable roles to genre fans. That of Dr. Anton Phibes. Colorful, not nearly as graphic as […]

The Prize Fighter (1979)

A screenwriter could go anywhere with a title like that. A Rocky knock-off. A straight forward drama of a young fighter’s rise thru the ranks or more than likely an ABC […]

Killer Fish (1978)

The long shadow of Jaws was a major influence on the exploitation market in the immediate years that followed the Spielberg film. Grizzly, Piranha and of course Jaws 2, 3 […]
