The scene where he finds out about her shouldn't of but made me giggle!

Yeah, when he decompensates and freaks out. Cagney was a heckuva great actor.

Pitts, the one i own is the UK box-set from the British Film Institute released in 2014.
Around the same time though, there was also a US Herzog collection box-set released by Shout Factory.
They're not the same though. Most (or probably all) of the more familiar titles are included in both sets,
but there are also many notable differences between the two. I remember i did some research before deciding
which box i should buy. It's not that one is better than the other. I think they're both equally impressive.
Eventually i picked up the UK BFI box, simply because it was cheaper.

Here are two videos which may help you a bit..

The BFI set : www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwRsNBDZKrM

The Shout Factory set : www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzObNJN_eIs

I have to admit the folks at Shout Factory did put a little more effort into their packaging.

The Masque of the Red Death (1964) - This gets better everytime I see it! One of Vincent Price's best performances. It looks beautiful and is incredibly moody. I want to go to there!

Jaguar Lives! (1979)

"Spanish-American action film directed by Ernest Pintoff and starring Joe Lewis, Christopher Lee, Donald Pleasence and Barbara Bach.
Its plot follows a secret agent who battles an international drugs ring." (Wiki)

This was a decent crime flick with few martial arts fights. Lewis didn´t have enough charisma to be action star but he has some nice moves though.
Our hero visits at least ten countries while he tries to find out the mysterious Esteban, the leader of the drug cartel.

Lots of Bond movie veterans in this one and we can also see John Huston and Woody Strode as Jaguar´s sensei.

The Arrow dvd includes cool Joe Lewis interview made in 2006. He died two years later.

Lunch Wagon is still easily the best Pintoff film i´ve seen [Smile]

I saw that for the first time about a year ago. It's got a sleazy kind of atmosphere, doesn't it?

I also saw a really obscure zombie romance--a rom-zom, perhaps? LOL--called Neither the Sea Nor the Sand around the same time. It was slow and weird. Kind of like a Harlequin romance paperback--with a zombie. ROFL

Here's an interesting story..

There was this horror movie i watched on BBC television sometime in the late 90s, which i couldn't remember the name of.
I clearly do remember what it was about, plus that it had a fair amount of nudity and psychedelic images.
Didn't know which actors / actresses were in it, didn't know who the director was, only that it was made roughly
between 1967 and 1974 most likely, judging from the things i did remember. Basically it was just a vague memory.

Enter Helen's Beware My Brethren post from day before yesterday..

I know this movie was released as The Fiend on dvd in the UK.. never seen it though, so i went looking on the Imdb.
I noticed it was directed by Robert Hartford-Davis, whom i know of because he also did Corruption (1968),
which has been released on blu-ray on the Grindhouse Releasing label back in 2013.
I also found out this was the same guy who made School For Unclaimed Girls (1969), which was released on UK dvd
earlier this year under its alternate title Girls Of Shame (and somehow managed to stay under my radar).

But going through his directorial film credits i noticed he also did Incense For The Damned aka Bloodsuckers (1970),
which -as it turned out- is in fact the movie i vaguely remembered watching on the BBC all those years ago !

Another mystery solved.. so thank you, Helen ! [Smile]

Bloodsuckers is a half-completed mess, but it does have nudity and psychadelia. [Smile]

The Ghost In The Invisible Bikini (1966)

Very dated, very cheesy 'beach' movie from AIP, starring a bunch of people you've never heard of, and - strangely enough - Boris Karloff, Basil Rathbone and Nancy Sinatra.

I can't quite work out if this falls into 'so bad it's good' territory. Certainly I enjoyed it more than I expected to, even with all it's very obvious flaws. The story follows the efforts of a recently deceased showman and his muse (the titular ghost in the bikini) as they attempt to deliver a good deed by ensuring the showman's estate is correctly shared amongst his benefactors and isn't stolen by his shyster lawyer. The will reading happens in an old manor house, onto which a hoard of teenage hipsters and a thieving motorcycle gang descend to add to the mayhem.

The performances varied from 'over the top' to 'wildly over the top' and the scenery had hints of Adam West's Batman about them. However, despite the hipsters' habit of bursting into song whenever they had the chance, it was fun, fast paced, and packed with sixties cheese.

I've always liked the AIP beach party films, Paul. They are just so quaint--"square" even--and time-capsule pieces of their era. They were all entertaining, though this one is the weakest of the series--and there's no beach in sight. Harvey Lembeck, who always had pretty good comic timing as Eric von Zipper, and his gang are like low-rent Three Stooges. And in addition to Nancy Sinatra, the girls, AIP regulars like Deborah Walley, Susan Hart Nicholson, and Quinn O'Hara, are simply gorgeous. The auburn-tressed Walley--RIP--was a favorite of mine. She was the quintessential "girl next door." And AIP got extra mileage out of that sawmill buzzsaw. I forget which earlier beach party movie it was also featured in.

The Blob was filmed in a small town in Eastern Pennsylvania. Every year they have a festival celebrating the film.

I'm thinkng that this upcoming Bluray actually has the 1988 remake directed by Chuck Russell instead of Son of Blob a/k/a Beware! The Blob directed by Larry Hagman.

I love the Chuck Russell 1988 version,never seen the original or the Son Of Blob but that is some package there that I'm quite tempted in picking it up.

Don't dislike the art that they've used either but I must say I do love the different random artworks that were originally used for the 88 remake!

The cool artwork used for the 1988 original Uk home video release.

Oh wow! That's super cool. I remember seeing Son of Blob many, many years ago--too many to be precise--in 1974 on the late, great CBS Late Movie. It has its moments. Actually, the original The Blob is an underrated, cool little slice of 50's sci-fi with a young Steve McQueen. The sequel Beware! The Blob (as I know it) is better than people give it credit for. It has some funny moments. And while I certainly admire the craftsmanship of the 1988 remake--and I know it has a lot of fans--I think that it's just okay. The original is actually more entertaining.

Watched Corman film The Arena (1974) which was directed by Steve Carver and Joe D´Amato.

"Female gladiators fight to the death. Inspired by the story of Spartacus, follow the adventures of a bevy of slave girls who,
upon finding themselves thrust into the gladiator ring, mount a vicious rebellion to fight their way to freedom." (IMDb)

This was a very low-budget film shot in Italy. The plot in itself is pretty interesting but they haven´t created much around it.
I love the two stars Pam Grier and Margaret Markov and they do what they can here including their own stunts.

All in all, a bit disappointing feature and not nearly as good as Black Mama White Mama but if you are a fan of the two female actresses mentioned you might still enjoy it.
