Thirst (1979)

This was an interesting and unique Australian horror thriller directed by Rod Hardy.
The movie stars Chantal Contouri, Shirley Cameron, Max Phipps, David Hemmings, Rod Mullinar, Henry Silva and Robert Thompson.

"The plot revolves around married professional Kate Davis (Contouri), who is kidnapped by a shadowy organization
known as 'The Brotherhood'. She is informed of her ancient lineage of descent from Báthory.
The Brotherhood have a hospital-like compound where they clinically 'bleed' brainwashed and hypnotised humans
and harvest and consume their blood. After Kate refuses to join, the cult give her hallucinogens
to break down her resistance." (Wikipedia)

Contouri is good and there are some truly brooding sequences where the cult try to break her resistance.
The score composed by Brian May was solid.

And ofcourse Kelly Nichols !

I hope the fact that i know who that is, doesn't say too much about what i've been watching here. [Big Grin]

Having said that, check out Glitter (1983)!
It's worth it. Not only for Kelly Nichols, but also for the tragic Shauna Grant.

Burnt Offerings (1976)

It was just ok for me. It somewhat reminded me of The Shining, which I am not really a fan of.

Tentacles (1977)

This was a decent little horror flick inspired by the Jaws.
Tentacles was directed by Ovidio G. Assonitis and stars Bo Hopkins,
John Huston, Shelley Winters, Henry Fonda, Cesare Danova and Delia Boccardo.

I liked the cinematography but the film was too long, predictable and lacks blood and nudity [Wink]
One thing i didn´t guess was the killer whale vs. killer tentacle finale [Smile]

The Gorgon, while second-tier Hammer, is a lot of fun. It gets high marks for creativity--trying to create a new classic monster--and role reversal with Lee as hero and Cushing as a sort-of-bad guy. And director John Gilling really tries to work up some atmosphere, despite the weak Gorgon make-up, which was laughable even by 60's standards, and the rickety, wobbly sets. It's not top 20 Hammer, that's for sure, but I always watch it when I stumble across it.

I finally caught up with Mario Bava's "5 Dolls for an August Moon" (1970). I had heard that it was not good and that Bava just did it as a work-for-hire. It wasn't even released in the U.S., which should tell you something. Not surprisingly, it's a mess. It's like the most boring version of Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians" ever--and doesn't make a lot of sense--though no movie can be completely awful with folks like William Berger and Edwige Fenech. (Was there ever a sexier Euro-starlet?) Everybody is attractive and dressed in the stylish fashions of the day, and the set decor screams swingin' 70s. The film also has an extra-cool soundtrack featuring a couple of jazzy organ cuts. Bava manages perhaps three good scenes or so, but he's already in his late-career overuse of the zoom lens. In fact, each of the nine despicable characters gets a zoom-in introduction. Yawn. Bava hated the film and called it his worst. I would nominate "Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs," but "5 Dolls" isn't much better. Still, for Bava fans, it's worth a look.

Demon Seed (1977)

"A scientist creates Proteus--an organic super computer with artificial intelligence which becomes obsessed with human beings, and in particular the creators wife." (IMDb)

Man, this was good!
The film was based on the novel of the same name by Dean Koontz and i just love this dark 70s scifi atmosphere.

Julie Christie gives a great performance and Robert Vaughn is excellent as proteus´ voice. His best role ever? Could be.
Loved the old school sfx too. Recommended!

I agree! Demon Seed is somewhat sleazy, but good. Julie Christie gives it her all, and Robert Vaughn uses his great voice to chilling effect. And it was directed by the late, great Donald Cammell, a really artistic filmmaker, who didn't receive a lot of love in his lifetime, but in another 10 years or so, will be considered one of the best directors of the 1970s-80s. A lot of critics hammered this because of the outrageousness of the plot, but now, almost 40 years later, it doesn't seem that crazy.

Dr. Tarr's Torture Dungeon a.k.a. Mansion Of Madness (1973)

,The story is set in a kind of kingdom of madness, established when the inmates of a vast and surreal insane asylum
lock up their keepers and enforce their own shocking hierarchy of activities and ideas'.

Loosely based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe, and heavily influenced by European art-films (most notably Fellini Satyricon),
there's lots of bizarre set-pieces and surreal imagery (and some goofball comedy too).. but hey, what else was there to expect
from Juan López Moctezuma, the man who produced Fando Y Lis (1968) and El Topo (1970) for Alejandro Jodorowsky,
and who went on to direct Alucarda (1975) !

Available on dvd from Mondo Macabro under its original Mansion Of Madness title.

Check out the trailer : www.youtube.com/watch?v=23pW9ipwMMc

I like Moctezuma's Alucarda better, and Jodorowsky is one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. Santa Sangre is a masterpiece on so many levels.

I've been watching a few Hammer / AIP movies recently - not a fan of too much overt gore and that kind of thing, but the Hammer-style ones are good fun.

I've found a brilliant resource online that might be useful for you:

Paul, I've long used that British Horror Films website. It's fantastic, kind of like this website is for 80s films. The Hammer and AIP films are great, some of the best, and still hold up. In fact, I saw Hammer's Twins of Evil for the first time many years ago and didn't particularly like it. I saw it a couple of years ago at the all-night drive-in marathon that I go to and enjoyed it a lot more. I've always loved Frankenstein Created Woman but having seen a beautiful print of it (from director Joe Dante's personal collection), I now think that it's not only one of Hammer's best Frankenstein films, it's one of their best films period. So not only do they hold up, some of them get better with age.

As for the beloved AIP films, of course the Corman/Price/Poe films are classics, but what I love is that even AIP's lower rent stuff--like Blacula or Sugar Hill, for example--has such a professional sheen for low-budget filmmaking. You see a lot of these current "found footage" films or other modern horror films, and they don't look as good as the old AIP stuff directed by guys like George Armitage or Jonathan Kaplan.
They may have been low-budget exploitation films geared toward a certain audience to make money, but they were made with tender loving care and a joy of movies. That's something absent from a lot of the huge-budget pictures released today--like anything Michael Bay or Brett Ratner directs. [Smile]

They're from a neat little UK based company called Hemlock Books, that seem to be specializing in this sort of stuff.
They also published several books on Hammer, as well as Tigon, Amicus, Pete Walker, and a Vincent Price biography.
I'm not familiar with any of those, but there is another one of their titles i do own : Empire Of The 'B's !
It's a book on the rise and fall of Charles Band's Empire Pictures.. i may have mentioned it before in another thread.

I'll have to check them out. I have a Pete Walker book, I believe from FAB, that is great. When I was a teenager, I had a couple of really good Hammer books, when Hammer was going strong. (I remember one of them had some racy pictures of folks like Veronica Carlson and Martine Beswick in it. LOL) A Tigon book would super.

Watched Mario Bava´s A Bay of Blood (1971) the other day.

Perhaps the first slasher film of all time and for example the Friday the 13th part 2 stole two kill scenes directly from this movie.

Not a perfect film by any means but a must see for horror buffs and oh boy i love Brigitte Skay [Wink]

Baron Blood (1972)

"A young man, Peter, returns to Austria in search of his heritage. There he visits the castle of an ancestor, a sadistic Baron who was cursed to a violent death
by a witch whom the Baron had burned at the stake. Peter reads aloud the incantation that causes Baron Blood to return and continue his murderous tortures." (IMDb)

A decent gothic castle horror film from Mario Bava.
Overall, not one of his best films but i liked the camera work, settings and lighting.
Elke Sommer plays the pretty scream queen and i also liked Joseph Cotten as the mysterious Becker.
