Savage Island (1985)

To be honest I thought this type of exploitation filmmaking went out with low budget specialist Jerry Warren or maybe even Roger Corman. By that I mean the days when […]

Bathing Beauty (1944)

The splendor of MGM’s technicolor look is abundant when Red Skelton finds himself trying to win back the hand of swimming star Esther Williams in this enjoyable romp that sees […]

The Haunted Palace (1963)

Roger Corman and AIP once again treat us to a Vincent Price graveyard fest that while being hailed as another of the Edgar Allan Poe entries is in truth an adaptation of […]

The Black Cat (1941)

Not to be confused with the 1934 classic of the same name or any other future film utilizing the Poe title which includes a 1981 thriller from gore maestro, Lucio […]

The King’s Thief (1955)

This sword wielding adventure is just the right tonic for a rainy Sunday afternoon if you can get your hands on a copy. By no means does it fall into […]

Mansion of the Doomed (1976)

In classic Bela Lugosi fashion from his Monogram Pictures era, Richard Basehart, much like Bela has a personal stake at hand playing a deranged eye specialist looking to restore his daughter’s sight […]

World Without End (1956)

This Allied Artists release is a wonderful example of a thoroughly enjoyable low budget sci-fi adventure done right. It’s filmed in color with some wonderful sets on board a spaceship […]

The Whip Hand (1951)

This RKO feature can easily be classified as one of those titles I now consider a hidden gem after seeing it for the first time. Thanks to the Warner Archive […]

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959)

What’s not to love when Doyle’s famous sleuth, Sherlock Holmes gets the full color treatment mixed with a dash of Hammer Horror featuring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee? As is […]

Madhouse (1974)

Horror film legend Vincent Price himself, plays a horror film legend in this distorted thriller that served as a co-production from both Amicus and AIP. Along with Hammer Studios, AIP […]

The Black Sleep (1956)

I would think that if this mad doctor tale had been filmed in the heart of the horror run of the late thirties and early forties by Universal Studios, then […]

Queen of Blood (1966)

Is it possible that this Corman produced thriller via writer/director Curtis Harrington was inspired by 1958’s It! The Terror From Beyond Space and in turn inspired Ridley Scott’s Alien in […]

Olivia de Havilland in the 1940’s

Alongside Maureen O’Hara, Olivia de Havilland may very well be my first screen crush. And why not? Her Maid Marion in The Adventures of Robin Hood has to be one […]
