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: Silent Night, Deadly Night (1972)

Hey guys! Paul Andolina is in charge for this review. I met Paul at a wrestling show and we discovered a mutual love of film. Check out his writing at Wrestling with Film. I love holiday themed horror movies. I probably spend too much time scouring the internet and books to look for more films with… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Silent Night, Deadly Night (1972)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: The Witches Mountain (1972)

Known in Spain as El Monte de las Brujas, this 1972 effort comes to us from director Raúl Artigot, who was the cinematographer on The Ghost Galleon (released in the U.S. as Horror of the Zombies) and The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46t-Jt9Tu3k The opening of this movie is Cathy's Curse level insanity: Carla walks around her house and finds a… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: The Witches Mountain (1972)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Horror Express (1972)

This entry was written by Bill Van Ryn, who creates both Groovy Doom and Drive-In Asylum. You should order every issue, because Bill puts together a zine that makes you fall in love with movies more and more with every page. There was something great about growing up in the 70s as a monster kid. With… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Horror Express (1972)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Maniac Mansion (1972)

I love Mill Creek multipacks. Sure, the quality is abysmal at times. Often, you get the same films on multiple sets. And you get bad dubs. But let's face it -- often you can find these sets used for $5 or less and you get up to 50 amazing films. That inspired me to spend… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Maniac Mansion (1972)

BIGFOOT WEEK: The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972)

The Legend of Boggy Creek is my favorite kind of movie. It's at once a narrative story and a documentary so that there will be times that you have no idea whether you're learning the unvarnished truth or being spun a tale. It's kind of like that movie in Orson Welles' F for Fake where he tells you… Continue reading BIGFOOT WEEK: The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972)

Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things (1972)

The same Bob Clark that did Porky's did A Christmas Story and also made Black Christmas and Deathdream. He even produced the film Moonrunners, which inspired TV's The Dukes of Hazzard. He also made Turk 182! (if you had HBO back in the day, you saw it), Rhinestone and the Baby Geniuses series. Yep. Bob Clark pretty much did it all. And here's one more completely… Continue reading Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things (1972)
