  • The Man Who Changed His Mind

    The Man Who Changed His Mind 1936

    Watched 08 Feb, 2016

    A classic tale of science fiction with a younger Karlof (never young). A well paced story with the fun elements of a black comedy.

    Just over 60 minutes in total so short but sweet. Another film that influenced many (Man With Two Brains leaps to mind) and sets the science meets horror tone perfectly.

    On Youtube right now so enjoy!

  • Spider Baby

    Spider Baby 1968

    A very strange mixture of film genres that must have influenced a ton of directors.

    It is funny, macarbe and not easy to predict. The tone of the film is an eerie one and the setting is bleak and dry. The characters are weird but interesting and the plot is very basic.

    People Under The Stairs, Texas Chainsaw and many others were influenced by this movie and I enjoyed it for it's stand alone mix of all sorts.

    Adam Sandler in something good? Yes I was amazed as well. This is his best work since 'Punch Drunk'. For those who have seen this film and the film I just mentioned, we all know that Sandler can act very well. I think he just needs direction and when he has it, he is a very likable believable character in any film. What I really loved about this film is the subtle approach to an overused theme. Yes it is…

    This is lots of fun for one reason, Christopher Lee. I do not believe that any of the history is correct, but no one cares because Lee becomes Rasputin or is that Rasputin becomes Lee. This film is just a vehicle for Lee to Showboat his charisma and personality. A must for all Hammer Horror fans.
