The Ghoul (1975) I loved this even more than previous viewings. So horrible and heartbreaking all at once. Cushing kills me [Frown]

Castle Of Fu Manchu/Blood Of Fu Manchu. Christopher Lees stars as the diabolical "yelloe peril" intent on taking over the world. Both lare sixties. The others in the series very hard to source with a small budget. 6/10.

Wow. I really like the first three. They look like different films-they are better made.

I really, really like "Ligeia," my favorite Corman/Poe after "Masque of the Red Death." What didn't you like about the ending?

i got confused with the whole cat angle, i wasnt sure what was going on with it, was it ligeia's spirit? how was it connected to rowena? i liked the part about the hypnotism from beyond the grave, i guess it was all witchcraft on ligiea's part even the dead-not dead-dead-not dead that rowena was going through, but ultimately i thought the tragic ending was forced, i havent read the story and that is probably the way it went in the book, but it felt like vernon fell should have escaped all that voodoo to a happy ending.

outside of that, price did a great job, good charisma and delivery and i like the cinematography

Understandable, GP. For me, the cryptic nature of the last 15 minutes or so is really interesting. Roger Corman allegedly had notations in his script denoting where Elizabeth Shepherd (beautiful actress, great dual performance) was Ligeia or Rowena since it is all so complicated and confusing. I haven't read Poe's "Ligeia" in many years, but it too is very downbeat. Few happy endings with Poe!

Price is marvelous. For folks that think that he was just some hammy, over-the-top horror star, check out his performances in the 1960's--they are fantastic, and this one is very special, one of his best. (I think that you make the point well by saying that you wished for a better fate for poor Verden Fell. Nobody played pained and emotionally damaged better than Price, and his performance is so good and sympathetic that you really pull for him the whole way.) I totally agree with you on the cinematography. It is perfect, just beautiful, and in gorgeous widescreen. It was done by Arthur Grant who filmed many Hammer films.

All in all, it's one of my favorite horror films of the 1960's. I'm in good company. It's one of Martin Scorsese's favorites too. [Smile]

The Sweeney and The Sweeney 2. Ultra violent (and realistic) for it's time of London's Flying Squad (rhyming slang of Sweeney Todd). John Thaw and Dennis Waterman star in the spin off from the great television series of the mid seventies. First is a solid 8/10, second is a bit disappointing 6.5/10.

I have season one in a box set, Harry. It was an excellent show, but a real product of its era. I just laughed when Thaw slammed a con up against a wall, and the con blubbered, "Please don't hurt me, Mr. Reagan!" Awww, the good old days of policing!

The Brood 1979. Starring Oliver Reed and Samantha Eggar. Early Cronenberg Horror.

A man tries to uncover an unconventional psychologist's therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife, while a series of brutal attacks committed by a brood of mutant children coincides with the husband's investigation.


Well made film, few visual effects, good score competent acting. Canadians always seem to create above average films. 7 3/4 out of 10.
