    Taste of Fear


    1st Seth Holt (followed by Danger Route, The Nanny and Blood from the Mummy's Tomb)

    Hello all! I sat down with the lovely Amy Hensarling* recently to discuss two Hidden Gems of Hammer. This is the second of our films we're discussing (the first being Blood from the Mummy's Tomb, which was reviewed earlier this month) and as you can tell, I managed to convert someone to this film's absolutely masterful quality. Thank you, Amy, for a wonderful time!

    2nd Hal Hartley (after The Unbelievable Truth)

    Recommended to me by the wonderful Amy Hensarling, this is a charming slice of early 90s hipsterdom complete with the requisite indie rock soundtrack (partly composed by Hartley himself) and a heavy dose of ironic deadpan.* Amy recommended it to me for the ways in which the characters say what they mean, and certainly they do that even if they really don't know what they want (two very different things, of course). Jude,…

    Scars of Dracula


    8th Roy Ward Baker (after Quatermass & the Pit, Asylum, The Vault of Horror, The Vampire Lovers, A Night to Remember, Dr Jekyll & Sister Hyde and The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires)
