Cathy’s Curse (1976)

Severin Films is a distributor I always keep an eye on. They always do a fantastic job restoring the films they release and loading them up with special features. They dig deep to find funky flicks that more often than not have been forgotten by most. Canadian film Cathy’s Curse is one such film. Languishing […]

The Hills Have Eyes (1977)

Back when I was a kid I distinctly remember watching The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes. I loved A Nightmare on Elm Street and for some reason my folks were ok with me renting Wes Craven movies. I remember being grossed out by The Last House on the Left and […]

What Have You Done To Solange? (1972)

About a decade ago (has it been that long?!) I went on a giallo binge. I looked up lists online and tried to knock out the best of the best. I remembered watching this flick and not having my socks blown when I saw it. When I got the Blu it was great timing, I […]

Black Mama White Mama (1973)

Several years ago there was a flood of blaxploitation classics on Netflix streaming. Many of the heavy hitters were on the site and I dug in, watching every one I could find. Such was my introduction to Pam Grier’s early films. I got to see all of the classics, Friday Foster, Coffy, Bucktown and more. […]

She Killed in Ecstasy (1970)

As I’ve said before, I’m not really the right guy to be reviewing Jess Franco films. Over the course of my many years of a cult film fan I’ve watched about 10 of his 180 films.  That’s a drop in his massive cinematic bucket but then again watching 10 films from a director that I […]

Creature Feature: Nature Turned Nasty In The Movies (2014)

Growing up as movie obsessed youth I cut my teeth on Harryhausen dynamation epics, action movies, and whatever monster flick my folks would let me put my hands on. As I grew older I moved on to more grotesque films and pursued the goriest of the gory and the most over the top action films […]

Theme ’70 (2015)

The world of zines was one that passed me by I’m afraid. I grew up in a small town and I don’t remember ever seeing any funky cool zines at local shops. In fact, during the 90’s and 00’s there wasn’t the emphasis on local that there is now. It was all about big corporate […]

Eurocrime (2014)

Eurocrime is a subgenre of Italian film that usually only serious film fanatics ever dig into. Usually it’s horror fiends that start to dig into some of the other films horror guys did (notably Umberto Lenzi and Lucio Fulci) and suddenly they’ve stumbled onto something almost no one has heard of outside of Italy the […]

Point Blank by Dwayne Epstein (2013)

Lee Marvin is an actor I have casually seen in films for years. His long face and gravelly voice mixed with his tough guy persona has held special interest with me. I was born in 84′ and Lee Marvin died in ’87 so I haven’t had much exposure to the man behind the films. All […]
