CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Nightmare in Wax (1969)

Cameron Mitchell is making his fourth appearance in the Chilling Classics box set with this movie, but I know that he has to be in even more. From voicing Jesus in The Robe to the 1951 version of Death of a Salesman, Mitchell had plenty of big roles in even bigger films. But we're not here to… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Nightmare in Wax (1969)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: A Bucket of Blood (1959)

Today's article for Chilling Classics month comes to us from El Paso, Texas. He's part of Ghoul Inc. Productions, a DIY group who are inspired by Roger Corman, Larry Buchanan, Frank Henenlotter, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Edward D. Wood, jr., S.F. Brownrigg, Barry Mahon and others. He's an awesome guy and I know no one better… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: A Bucket of Blood (1959)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: The Revenge of Dr. X (1967)

It's been said that this movie is based on a 1950s screenplay by Edward D. Wood Jr., but he isn't credited. He probably should be -- this has his weird hands all over it. Even stranger, the first American video release had credits for a completely different movie, the 1969 Filipino film The Mad Doctor of… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: The Revenge of Dr. X (1967)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Sunburst (1975)

Sometimes the Chilling Classics rewards you with magic. Other times, it assaults you with a film like Sunburst, also known as Slashed Dreams. Robert (Peter Hooten, the original Dr. Strange) and Jenny (Katharine Baumann, The Thing with Two Heads and now a handbag creator) are going up to the woods to find their friend, Michael (Robert Englund), who has left the… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Sunburst (1975)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: The Ghost (1963)

An Italian horror remake of 1955's Les Diaboliques, I'll give you one reason to watch this movie: Barbara Steele. Otherwise, it's a brooding take on murder and gaslighting. And while this is directed by Riccardo Freda, stars Steele and has a character named Dr. Hichcock, it is not the same movie as The Horrible Dr. Hichcock. While this movie… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: The Ghost (1963)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: The Devil’s Hand (1961)

Also known as Witchcraft, The Naked Goddess, Devil's Doll and Live to Love, this black and white film is all about some people in Los Angeles who want to be ahead of the Black House's curve in San Francisco and start worshipping Satan...err, Gamba, the Great Devil God. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9NUfNjTCqs Probably the most interesting thing that I… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: The Devil’s Hand (1961)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Dr. Tarr’s Torture Dungeon (1973)

If all Juan López Moctezuma directed was Alucarda, he'd still be celebrated. Throw in the fact that he was behind the camera for El Topo and also created this little piece of strangeness and you can see that he's someone to be celebrated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJpwdYiNLcc A journalist has traveled to Dr. Maillard's (Claudio Brook, Alucarda, The Devil's Rain!) remote mental… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Dr. Tarr’s Torture Dungeon (1973)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter (1966)

John S Berry really came through, getting this next Chilling Classics movie our way on a quick deadline. I watched this movie too, so I can feel the pain that he had to go through. I never want anyone to do anything I wouldn't do, you know? You can check out John on Twitter.  When it… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter (1966)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Track of the Moon Beast (1972)

This entry was written by Bill Van Ryn, who is the creative force behind the website Groovy Doom and the zine Drive-In Asylum. Somehow, he's tackled nearly every yeti related film on this box set. Thanks, Bill! Filmed in 1972, Track of the Moon Beast never received any significant theatrical distribution. It sat shelved for years after… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Track of the Moon Beast (1972)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Shock (1946)

Dr. Cross (an amazingly young Vincent Price) is treating a young patient for shock, as she went into a coma when she saw a man kill his wife with a candlestick. But what if that man ended up being Dr. Cross? And how will she escape? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdnXJOohUbI Lynn Bari plays the Doctor's lover/nurse Elaine, and… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Shock (1946)
