The Thing (1982)

Each of us have one or more of those pivotal films from our younger years that leaves a lasting impression into adulthood and while I have many I can name, […]

Nightwing (1979)

This Columbia Pictures release that borrows a certain blueprint or two tosses a few more scare tactics at movie goers as the 70’s came to a close. It has a reputable […]

Night of the Big Heat (1967)

aka Island of the Burning Damned As this Terence Fischer directed sci-fi effort is not based in a Gothic setting and isn’t part of the Hammer series of monster films, […]

The Fog (1980)

A Theatrical Flashback

In my little corner of the world which is a long way from Hollywood there isn’t too many opportunities to catch a retro night at the movie theater. If there […]

The Nest (1988)

The long shadow of a certain box office smash from 1975 still provided a template for this Julie Corman produced “B” flick for Concorde Pictures. We have a sheriff on […]

The Heston Cameo

Charlton Heston is for me a great example of a bigger than life film hero during my childhood. Growing up I would be watching him on Sunday afternoon television battling […]
