Battle Beyond the Stars
Forbidden World
Humanoids From the Deep
Piranha
The Wasp Woman

Nine looks like a Frankenstein movie but I’m not sure which one. Number one made me think of a secret and irises (watched Suspiria again recently). And Humanoids From the Deep has a close family connection since Roger Corman was shooting it in Fort Bragg where my wife grew up and my father-in-law is an extra in it. He’s the band leader during the night carnival scene. Blink and you’ll miss him. They reused the same shot in the 1996 remake so he’s in both versions.

Shoot. It didn’t put the numbers next to my guess. Those are 5, 6, 7,8, and 11.

Hi everyone!

#2 has to be Man with the X-Ray Eyes (1962). Hope everyone is well and safe.

Twelfth – The Masque of Red Death ? or Angry Red Planet ?

The ninth is Frankenstein Unbound, Roger Corman’s last directed film (I think). And, yes, it looks like Corman films is the theme here.

To complicate things further, Joe Dante mentioned on his podcast recently that Corman sometimes produced movies without giving himself onscreen credit, for tax reasons. Dante mentioned Curtis Harrington’s Night Tide (a terrific film) as one of those movies.

Last week I re-watched Lamberto Bava’s Demons (1986). For anyone who hasn’t sen it, the film is set (mostly) in a movie theater, where the viewers have been given free tickets to a screening. The onscreen movie looks like a cross between a 60s Italian horror movie and an 80s slasher. Things turn for the worse when real monsters begin invading the theater (from behind the screen, symbolically).

The fun in Demons is the story working on more than one level, with a meta-commentary on movies running around alongside great 80s gut-munching gore.

I never get tired of it.

So…is this a “recommend-a-movie” free-for-all then? Cool!!

Keeping with the theme (sorta), last week I watched Lamberto Bava’s debut, Macabre…and loved it. Now, I love Demons 1 and 2, A Blade in the Dark, etc., but this one is my fave of his. It’s not exactly subtle, but compared to his other films, it’s downright restrained. More of a morbid thriller than horror, but also more serious in tone than many of Bava’s other films. The plot is simplicity itself: A woman recently traumatized by the weird death of her lover moves into a boarding house where the blind landlord (played by Stanko Molnar…..best name EVER!!!) keeps hearing sounds that suggest she’s still doing the nasty with her dead lover. The whole movie hinges on the ending, so I’ll say no more. It’s on TUBI TV right now for anyone who hasn’t seen it.

And… can I just say that TUBI TV rocks!?! The horror section alone has so many movies, it’s incredible! It’s like a digital version of the best mom n pop video store of the 1990’s!! I’m set for the rest of the pandemic!!

Huh! I’ve never even heard of Dark Waters, but after reading a few IMDb reviews, I’m watching it tonight!! Sounds just up my alley. Yay!! Another movie to look forward to!

I don’t know how many of the Blind Dead films you’ve seen, but I don’t blame you for falling asleep during Ghost Galleon ’cause it’s by far the weakest of the four. Lots of “toy ship in a bathtub” scenes.

I’ve been eyeing Ghosthouse for weeks now, but I know it’s going to be awful, so I’m waiting for the right time to watch it. Like when I’m blitzed. May never get to it at this point!
