Escapement (a.k.a The Electronic Monster) from 1958.

 -

When an insurance investigator flies to the South of France to look into the mysterious death of a movie star, he finds a far more tangled web of death, torture and evil intent.

This has a very fifties 'mad scientist / megalomaniac' theme running through it, and the possibility of world domination through brainwashing key people is played (and revealed) in quite a subtle manner.

A writer's secretary tries to find her missing friend and uncovers a murder plot. - from IMDb


1972 Italian Giallo with very little in the way of any slasher action but it has a good mystery at its core and a real sleazy feel to the proceedings.

Plenty of nudity from the gorgeous Barbara Bouchet and Rosalba Neri plus many location shots of beautiful Venice make this a great looking movie.

Also stars screen veteran Farley Granger and features a beautiful music score by Teo Usuelli

Well worth checking out!

When I was a drive-in projectionist back in the mid-70s, we had a fantastic double bill, Lucio Fulci's The Psychic a/k/a Seven Black Notes in the Key of Death and Amuck. Let me tell you, lots of cars stopped by the side of the road when the big shower scene in Amuck came on.

I'm not surprised Crash as both Rosalba Neri and Barbara Bouchet (Casino Royale) are two stunning looking women!

Once again, this was one of those films that made the teenage version of me believe that all Euro actresses were the most beautiful women on earth. [Smile]

I've just received another giallo starring Rosalba Neri. It's a German 3-disc set of a movie i had never even heard of.

 -

Two Masks For Alexa (1971)

It's a hardcover mediabook edition with one blu-ray and two dvds. Three versions are available, each with different artwork.
I have the one posted above (which is cover C). The set includes three separate versions of the movie, plus a 75min featurette.

Here's an unboxing clip for the cover A edition of this release : www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaCvkBp2UAw

The cover A edition is limited to 444 copies, while cover B and C editions are limited to only 333 copies each.

Very, very happy with this one, and it's English-friendly too ! [Smile]

The Trip (1967) with Peter Fonda and Bruce Dern

A film director, suffering through divorce proceedings, tries his first LSD.

The most hippy and trippy of sixties hippy-trippyness, the movie is both a series of disjointed, bizarre imaginings and the saddest of bloated monologues about the decade of the social drop-out.

The Tomb of Ligeia (1964) starred Vincent Price as a widower whose first wife just wouldn't stay dead. With her spirit inhabiting a black cat, Price's second wife becomes terrorised and tormented when she moves into the old Abbey they called 'home'.

Well crafted suspense movie with touched of the macabre.

The Comedy of Terrors (1963) boasts a stellar cast of Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, Basil Rathbone, Joyce Jameson and Joe E Brown.

Having taken over his father in law's funeral parlour business, the unscrupulous Trumbull (Price) succeeds only in drinking it to the point of collapse. He now despises his father in law (Karloff) and his idealistic wife (Jameson) - with whom his downtrodden assistant Gillie (Lorre) is madly in love.

When the rent is demanded, they return to their only certain means of making money - murder. As the only funeral service in town, they would be guaranteed business. But things start going wrong when their landlord Mr Black (Rathbone) simply refuses to die properly...

A mixture of over-the-top acting and slapstick mixes with the crime theme here to present a fun, enjoyable 19th century dark farce.

Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter (1974) starring Horst Jansen, John Carson, Caroline Munro, Wanda Ventham.

Sub par Hammer flick that promised more than it delivered, with vampires that sought life rather than blood, and for whom the traditional killing methods were not guaranteed to work. Still, Caroline Munro is lovely to look at...

Seduction of a Nerd (1970) starring Julie Newmar, Victor Buono, Wally Cox.

An attractive, vampish toy company boss wants to hire a principled nerd whom she sees selling traditional toys to kids with ease. When the offer of money fails, her investigations reveal him to be an avid watcher and stalker of women, so she tasks her devoted assistant with setting up women to seduce him into signing the contract.

Cheesy, dated Troma sex comedy, but one that could, possibly, work today if remade as an American Pie or 40 Year Old Virgin style movie.

Night Slaves is a 1970 TV movie starring James Franciscus, Lee Grant, Leslie Nielsen and Tisha Sterling.

On vacation to recuperate after a car accident, Clay and his estranged wife Marjorie stop in a strange western town overnight. In the night, everyone except Clay turn into zombie-like creatures and head out of town on trucks, returning four hours later with no recollection of the event. Clay looks to find out what is going on, and when it repeats every night, he hatches a plan to find out why - and why he alone is unaffected.

So-so TV movie, with an interesting premise that is badly played out and in which the resulting solution is clumsily signalled.

Ring of Fire, (1961) starring David Janssen(best known for the tv series The Fugitive), Judith Taylor and Frank Gorsen. A bad girl and two delinquent boys take a sheriff hostage in the Oregon wilderness. A wildfire breaks out, threatening the small town the sheriff presides over. Although no Academy worthy film, the special effects were excellent. At the end of the movie, which I watched on Turner Classic Movies, a woman commentator said the filming was mainly in a small town in Oregon. There is a train/bridge collapse scene, and she said the remnants from the collapse are still in the river. The forest fire scenes were stock footage of fires in Oregon and California. For it having been filmed in 1961, I really thought they did a great job on special effects.

Shout at the Devil (1976)

"During World War One a British aristocrat, an American entrepreneur and the latter's attractive young daughter,
set out to destroy a German battle-cruiser which is awaiting repairs in an inlet just off Zanzibar." (IMDb)

This was extremely uneven action adventure directed by Peter R. Hunt and starring Lee Marvin and Roger Moore.
Includes few interesting set pieces but the script is so unfunny and clumsy i cant really recommend this one.

I remember seeing this a long time ago, but for the life of me, I can barely remember it. It's a shame that outside of the Bond films, Moore didn't get too many memorable roles. He was so underrated as an actor.

Yeah, i have another Moore/Hunt/Wilbur Smith collaboration called Gold (1974) which is also set in Africa.
Its slightly better than Shout at the Devil but thats not saying much.

Rewatched The Wild Geese (1978) which id seen once before back in the mid-80s.
Its in fact one of the very first vhs films ive seen and i still remembered one scene so it must be an effective moment.

This is a very good action adventure set in Africa, surprise, surprise. Roger Moore sure spent lots of time there during the 70s.

Good story, cool characters and some gut-wrenching moments in this one. Recommended!

Santa Fe Trail (1940) starring Errol Flynn, Ronald Reagan, Olivia de Havilland and Raymond Massey.

Strangely uncomfortable watch, this one. It's set in pre-Civil War USA, where the 'heroes' are fighting against the Abolitionists, and those campaigning against slavery are seen as the villains of the piece. And that creates a situation whereby you don't really warm to anyone - the 'good guys' are defending an abominable state, and the 'bad guys' are trying to tear it down but are shown behaving badly in doing so.

That possibly makes for a more interesting film than it would otherwise be. However - not one I ever really felt in any way happy about.

Summer Camp (1979)

"The director of a failing summer camp decides to invite campers from ten years ago for a free weekend event, hoping that he can trick them into fixing up the place
and also get their families to provide them some financial support. The boys and girls return to the camp and play pranks on each other
and try to score with the other campers and the staff." (IMDb)

Very typical low-budget camp flick from Chuck Vincent perhaps with a little bit extra nudity.
The theme tune was solid and you can see Linnea Quigley as one of the horny campers here (credited as Barbara Gold).
Only for die-hard summer camp completists [Smile]

The Screaming Skull (1958) - I know a lot of people crap on/laugh at this film. I friggin' adore it! From the eeriely similar to The Shining music to the moody cinematography, the house, the gardens, the grave, the gardener, the pond, the dramatic leading woman, the atmosphere, that skull. And the plot, while it has been done many times, is a joy and John Hudson is great in this. Plus for a film so short I love how slowly paced it is really ratcheting up the suspense.

House Of Frankenstein (1944) - After disappointing rewatches of Son and Ghost of Frankenstein this one was a breath of fresh air. Looked gorge with great atmosphere. Loved the chamber of horrors, gypsies and whatnot. Boris Karloff was great playing such a cold character. I really felt for Daniel and Lon Chaney Jr broke my heart. Hated the floozy.

The Werewolf Of Washington - This was even more entertaining second time around! Proper old school transformations, blatant Wolf Man rip offs, ridiculous plot, fantastic lines like "Jack, would you please quit scratching the palms of your hands. It's just not manly." I don't think I've seen a film with so much chatting in the toilets! Dean Stockwell goes full throttle into his OTT role crawling around on all fours, cracking the camera lens. It's hilarious in places, has to be intentionally so!? And that ending over the credits, hahaha. One of the most enjoyable werewolf flicks.

Night of the Eagle (1962) - One of my favourite witchy films. Love the slow burn which really makes the tension unbearable at times. Cinematography is lush. Janet Blair is fantastic. Atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere!!!

The Ghost (1963) - A gothic delight with twists and turns at every corner. So glad I had forgotten the ending. Will return to it in October as I know the atmosphere will be even more electric then!

Target Earth (1954)- I enjoyed the hell out of this! It was like 28 Days Later but with robots. There wasn't a tonne of robot action, (who looked like one kick and they would wobble over) but that was fine as it was essentially about the 4 main characters whom I LOVED!
