  • The Manster 1962

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Oct, 2014

    October Horror Challenge 2014 Movie #60

    A pretty fun and breezy little bit of creature hokum. Watching Peter Dyneley turn into a prick alcoholic was entertaining enough for me, with his scowled face and barking out barbs at everyone. Having a monster sprouting from his shoulder is only a bonus. Other than that it's your typical by the books 60's low-budget schlock, but a lot more fun than many of the others. It was nice to see some Japanese elements in it as well, helping it stand out a bit from that time period in the genre.

  • Diary of a Madman 1963

    ★★½ Watched 22 Oct, 2014

    Fairly disappointing Price vehicle. The first 20 minutes sets up a very intriguing premise (kind of like a 19th century version of Gregory Hoblit's Fallen), then follows it with 30 minutes of limp romancing, and the final 30 trying to pick up momentum again but by then it's saddled with everything it's set up.

Looks like he also watched some Wicker Man and decided worshiping a sun god sounds cool...even though he's a FUCKING VAMPIRE. He also looks to have married a ball-busting dame on the level of an east coast Sicilian lady, hired the most uppity butler since C-3PO, keeps company with methheads who are…

    October Horror Challenge 2014 Movie #42

    After showing my son The Monster Squad a few weeks ago, he seems to have developed an interest in vampires, or more specifically, vampire hunters. It struck me as a weirdly specific interest, but hey, who am I to judge. Well, when someone asks to see a movie about vampire hunters, who the fuck else are you going to turn to other than Peter Vincent?

    Out of the ten years I've been doing this…
