    Werewolf Island

    ★★

    Well... About that werewolf. Not so much a werewolf and more a vengeful spirit. This is one of those films where the director wrote, produced and stars in the movie. Yeah, you know how that sort of thing turns out. Not so much a movie as a series of badly done flashbacks telling the story of the island's curse. You don't really get a werewolf, but you do get Native Americans, Snooty French people, 1920's gangsters and '70's bikers. And the effects during the climax... Yeah. Also a dude gets his balls ripped off.

    Primal Rage

    ★★★

    A cheesy Halloween treat written by Umberto Lenzi and directed by Vittorio Rambaldi, son of special effects guru Carlo Rambaldi (who did the effects), perfect for October. The Halloween dance sequence is a highlight.

    Cold Eyes of Fear

    ★★★

    Scarecrow Video Psychotronic Challenge Guideline:
    23. A REST IN THE PIECE IS ANOTHER WAY OF SAYING DRAMATIC PAUSE: Morricone soundtracks only.

    Movie # 45:
    Cold Eyes of Fear (1971)

    There's ton of great Morricone scored horror films to choose from for this, I went with Cold Eyes of Fear because I've only seen it once, years ago. A giallo infused version of Desperate Hours. The only thing more bonkers then Morricone's free form Jazz score is Castellari's insane direction. The film's only real drawback is it slows way down at the midpoint. But that damn cat makes up for it.

  • Cruel Jaws

    Cruel Jaws

    ★★★½

    Holy balls! This movie. Bruno Mattei rips off Jaws a couple decades late and it's amazing. The film looks more like 1985 then 1995. The dubbing is atrociously bad. Then there's Star Wars music that plays multiple times. And the cherry on top of all this is the dude that looks like Hulk Hogan brother!
