The Deadly Mantis (1957)

One can easily classify watching most any Universal International sci-fi effort from the 1950’s as time well spent and The Deadly Mantis fits right into that statement along with the […]

Open Season (1974)

This film from director Peter Collinson almost serves as a precursor to the realities the horror genre would unleash in the years to come when the real monsters are those around us […]

Universal International had a nice run of thrillers throughout the fifties once the Gothic horror phase had come to an end. None bigger than The Creature From the Black Lagoon. […]

Godzilla Fun!

I couldn’t stay away from the movie screens today and went to see the new film with my 2 sons. I am not here to review the new film which […]

The Black Castle (1952)
