Blade (1998, Stephen Norrington)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Oct 31, 2019

Back when the movie came out—on DVD, anyway—I tried watching Blade 1 a couple times. The first time I turned it off before I was twenty minutes in, which used to be a soft rule (give the movie twenty minutes, depending on runtime); I think I gave it until Stephen Dorff showed up, then had to stop. read more

Kung Fu and Vampires! It's the Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires!

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Oct 31, 2019

Peter Cushing as Van Helsing. I watched The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974) for the fifth or sixth time recently. During this latest viewing, I studied it carefully. When it was over, I reviewed my notes, analyzed the plot and themes, and researched the production history. And still, my frie read more

Throwback Thursday – The House on Haunted Hill

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Oct 31, 2019

Between this blog and my previous one, Professor Damian’s Public Domain Treasure Chest, I’ve been writing about movies for quite a while now. Because of that, there are a lot of posts that have simply gotten lost to the mists of time. So, I figured I’d use the idea of “Throwb read more

Watching 1939: The Return of Doctor X (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Oct 31, 2019

In 2011, I announced I was trying to see every film released in 1939. This new series chronicles films released in 1939 as I watch them. As we start out this blog feature, this section may become more concrete as I search for a common thread that runs throughout each film of the year.

book: The Gray Flannel Shroud (1959) by Henry Slesar

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Oct 31, 2019

A lightweight, lighthearted piece of slick 1950s crime/mystery fiction that deservedly earned the author the 1960 Edgar Award for Best First Novel — I say “deservedly” even though I imagine there’ll be many a modern reader who’ll be incredulous about the lack of intros read more

Carry On #20: Carry On Loving

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 30, 2019

We’ve already reached the 20th review for the Carry On blog series! Incredible! I must admit tho, that I didn’t hurry too much on watching Carry On Loving (Gerald Thomas, 1970). Aside from the fact that I had to work on school stuff, looking at some ratings on the films on the Internet, read more

Amicus Productions is best known as being a rival to Hammer Films in the making of various horror and science-fiction films during the 1960s and 1970s. While Hammer became famous for their English Gothic titles, the British-based Amicus (headed by Americans Max Rosenberg and Milton Subotsky) stuck m read more

The Curse of The Cat People (1944): The Oddest of Horror Sequels

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Oct 30, 2019

The Curse of the Cat People feels like entering a storybook only to find ourselves in Tarry Town near Sleepy Hollow. Fittingly, we are placed with a group of kindergarteners who have come with their teacher to frolic and enjoy a field trip to the place brought to life in the tall tales of Washington read more

book: Jemima Shore’s First Case, and Other Stories (1986) by Antonia Fraser

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Oct 30, 2019

I read a couple of Antonia Fraser’s Jemima Shore mysteries back in the day, and remember them as modestly entertaining. I didn’t catch the TV serialization of Quiet as a Nun, and at most I saw a single episode of the later TV series Jemima Shore Investigates, with Patricia Hodge in the read more
