    Mr. Inside/Mr. Outside

    ★★★½

    A made-for-TV movie produced by Philip D'Antoni (THE FRENCH CONNECTION and THE SEVEN UPS) which stars a pre- Barney Miller Hal Linden along with Tony Lo Bianco as a pair of NYC police detectives in a wonderfully grimy pre-Disney Big Apple. Surprisingly violent for a TV movie and based somewhat upon the real exploits of NYC police detectives Randy Jurgensen (who also appeared in bunches of NYC films in the '70s) and Sonny Grosso (from the real-life French Connection case).

    Tombs of the Blind Dead

    ★★★½

    For me the apex of the golden age of Spanish horror (with all apologies to Paul Naschy) and always a Halloween must. Followed by three sequels of variable quality (but all still watchable) this has it all - dripping Gothic atmosphere, bare skin and bright red gore.

    ★★★★½

    Quirky and fascinating film that really pulls you in (who's zoomin' who !?!). Anthony Perkins and Tuesday Weld ( who's almost to beautiful to look at here) are wonderful together.
