Dark Places (1974)

Here’s one I believe to be a forgotten thriller among the many titles in the Christopher Lee catalogue. As a matter of fact to the best of my knowledge it’s […]

Mausoleum (1983)

I guess it was inevitable that the word Mausoleum would be used for the title of a horror movie and while it is a genre offering for the fans, others […]

While the horror movie in general is meant to bring thrills and chills there is still one ingredient that is always a welcome addition to the genre when done right. […]

Uninvited (1988)

If you’re at all familiar with the directing career of Greydon Clark then you should have a good handle on just what to expect in this thriller starring a trio […]

Contract on Cherry Street (1977)

Following the release of the less than memorable, Dirty Dingus Magee, in 1970, Frank Sinatra, retired from the big screen and wouldn’t return until the release of the cop thriller, […]

The Golden Salamander (1950)

“Not by ignoring evil does one overcome it, but by going to meet it.” Director Ronald Neame also had a hand in the screenplay of this nifty Noir thriller starring […]

One Touch of Venus (1948)

What’s a man to do when a statue looks just like Ava Gardner? Well, where Robert Walker is concerned, you do some daydreaming, kiss it and hope for the best. […]

Outpost in Morocco (1949)

I couldn’t help but wonder while watching this French Foreign Legion tale from director Robert Florey if there were ever any actual Frenchman in the ranks of the Legion. The […]

Fort Massacre (1958)

aka … Vengeance of Hercules Oscar winner for 1949’s All The King’s Men, Broderick Crawford, ventured overseas to the world of Peplum adventures and in the process gave audiences a […]

Lost In a Harem (1944)

Up to this point, the smash comedy team of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello having graduated from the world of burlesque had starred in twelve movies from 1940 onward. All under […]

Ace High (1968)

One almost wants to change this title to “Shades of Tuco.” Truthfully with a couple of tweaks to the script, this spaghetti western from director Giuseppe Colizzi could have served […]

Mister 880 (1950)

Who better than Oscar Winner, Edmund Gwenn, to play a kindly old timer living in New York City who goes out of his way to befriend children, stray animals and […]

The Sentinel (1977)

Show me a 1970’s theatrical release with no less than sixteen “stars” I’m sure to recognize and I’d think I was sitting down to watch another disaster epic. Maybe the […]
