Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter (1966)

I'll admit it. I cheated. Instead of watching this movie in its original form, I found a version that had Joe Bob Briggs do commentary. Unlike modern commentary tracks where bloggers and magazine writers try in vain to impress you with how cool and smart they are, Joe Bob just hangs back and blows your… Continue reading Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter (1966)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Drive-In Massacre (1976)

I love the drive-in more than anywhere else in the world. A night at the drive-in is one of promise, wonder, drinking in public, movies that I love and Chilly Dilly pickles. This movie tries to make the drive-in a scary place. But is it an entertaining one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9eqvWQV4rI Starting off with a double murder… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Drive-In Massacre (1976)
