CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Land of the Minotaur (1976)

I watch a lot of bad movies. Often, you have to take a part of the movie that you like and use it to get through a film. This one is a case in point. There's a lot of this movie that would kill the spirit of an average movie watcher. Not me. Not when… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Land of the Minotaur (1976)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Sisters of Death (1976)

This movie starts in the most awesome way. During an all-girl secret society college initiation, The Sisters kneel as they hide behind shrouds and place a loaded pistol to each pledge's head. The first girl, that goes well, as all we hear is a click and she survives. The next one, well, it doesn't go so well.… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Sisters of Death (1976)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Haunts (1976)

This entry was written by Bill Van Ryn, who is behind the amazing Groovy Doom and Drive-In Asylum. Bill has always been a major inspiration and help when it comes to my love of film, as well as always being awake when I text him at 3 AM to discuss Paul Naschy. Haunts is one of… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Haunts (1976)

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Death Rage (1976)

Before he totally devoted himself solely to the stage, Yul Brynner made one final film. This was it. It's also known as Anger In His Eyes and feels completely out of place on the Chilling Classics box set. Shenanigans at a horse track lead to an American mafia plater being killed in Naples. They bring Peter… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Death Rage (1976)

BIGFOOT WEEK: Creature from Black Lake (1976)

If I've learned anything from my week of watching Bigfoot movies, it's that Yankees aren't wanted in the places where Bigfoot resides. You can also rewrite that sentence to cover city folks aren't wanted when Bigfoot decides to walk on through Western Pennsylvania or Southeastern Ohio. This one is all about two dudes: Rives (John… Continue reading BIGFOOT WEEK: Creature from Black Lake (1976)

The Premonition (1976)

A foster mother has The Premonition: her new daughter's unstable biological mother is going to come and take her away. It comes true, so what happens next? PS - it's beyond the power of an exorcist in only the way that an exploitation movie poster can promise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edVE7vwNGy0 Originally released as part of Arrow Video's American… Continue reading The Premonition (1976)
