The Witch Who Came From the Sea (1976)

Another film in the American Film Project released by Arrow Video, The Witch Who Came From the Sea was designated as a video nasty in the U.K. in the early 80’s. Close to fifteen years ago, I went through the video nasty list and watched every title i could get my hands on, including The […]

Psychomania (1973)

I’ll be honest with you: I’m not a fan of biker movies. I’ve seen a very small number of them but i’m certainly not in the cult of motorcycles. I think motorcycles are neat and all but the exploitation films of the 60’s and 70’s usually leave me cold. The idea just doesn’t float my […]

He made a series of horror flicks in the 70’s (and one in the 80’s)  that were well written, tightly plotted, and very well acted. His films aren’t known for being graphic gorefests because the censors at the time wouldn’t allow it […]

Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide (2014)

About 10 years ago I discovered the video nasty phenomenon. Here in the states we can usually release whatever the hell we want but the blokes out in the U.K. have not had it so good. In the early 80’s as VCRs became available, distributors started pumping out all sorts of lurid covers from graphic […]
