Avalanche (1978)

With Irwin Allen laying claim to most of the natural disasters that make for explosive cinema, producer Roger Corman once again takes a popular theme and grabs a piece of […]

Battle Beyond the Stars (1980)

By way of New World Pictures and the sure to be frugal, Roger Corman comes this not so epic space opera that is essentially a reworking of The Magnificent Seven […]

Captain Apache (1971)

Satire? Perhaps. Psychedelic? Could Be. The Lee Van Cleef factor? Bullseye! Not only does Lee take the title role but he croons the closing song April Morning. Had I been […]

Now Playing …. circa 1982

Time for a trip back to another time when movie theaters offered a little more variety for one’s viewing pleasure. Have a look and date yourself if you like. It’s […]

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 […]

Showdown At Boot Hill (1958)

Of the Roger Corman/Edgar Allan Poe cycle of the early sixties, The Premature Burial is the only film not to have Vincent Price as it’s leading man. Stepping in to […]

Vigilante Force (1976)

“They called it God’s Country till all hell broke loose!” With Dirty Harry and Death Wish leading the way in a new type of screen justice, exploitation producer Gene Corman […]

The Comedy of Terrors (1964)

The horror film has always been an easy mark for filmmakers to parody so Speakeasy’s Kristina and myself have decided to shine the light on the satires of horror and […]

Theater of Blood (1973)

Although I have not seen every film of Vincent’s career I have seen the majority of them and all of his so called “horrors.” Of the ones I’ve seen, there […]

The Ghouls Gallery of Movie Posters

When I narrow the field down to “horror” film stars I usually stick with what I suppose are the usual seven actors. Universal Studios and the designs of Jack Pierce […]

White Line Fever (1975)

It’s been well over twenty years since I’ve seen the story of Jan-Michael Vincent and his rig “The Blue Mule.” I loved seeing this as a kid on late night […]
