The Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires (1974) - The Hammer Dracula series ending in a martial arts extravaganza in Hong Kong, and a Shaw brothers collaboration is both off its head and utter genius. I think this is the most polished looking of the series which is both good and bad. I love the story and think this is my favourite Cushing Van Helsing. Lots of fun fights, bodies rising from under the ground, great disintegrating bodies, fab broken hearted sucide and the final showdown between Van Helsing and Dracula, even though it's not Lee, is a grand and fitting end. Really enjoyed watching these again. I will try not to leave it 6 years next time! 8/10

Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors (1965) - This is one of the weaker Amicus anthologies for me but still gets this score so says it all really. They are ok but I always feel like the first 2 stories lets it down a bit, but each one after gets stronger and stronger. This is one where I think I like the cast of characters and wraparound more than the actual tales. 8/10

The House That Dripped Blood (1970) - This is my favourite Amicus film. Just by a hair though, as they have others that are exceptional also, especially From Beyond The Grave. A rare feat with an anthology film in that I love every tale here equally. From the creepy opening one, to the solemn, beautifully lit second with Peter Cushing, to evil kid section with my favourite part from Christopher Lee "Educational toys, not this!" and finally the humourous one with Jon Pertwee in his element as an egotistical horror film star making a really fun double act with Ingrid Pitt. With there just being 4 stories over 100 mins it doesn't have the rushed feel some can have, all are fleshed out wonderfully and could see how a couple of them coulda been feature length. The cast is great all round and a nice fun ending. Perfect candlelit October film. 10/10

Frech Postcards. Loved it. A coming of age film from '79.

Asylum (1972) - The first story is a little daft but fun. The next 3 are really great though. Particularly love the Peter Cushing tailor segment. If it had just ended after the 4th story it woulda been fine but the long ending to the wraparound just takes it to another level. It's fantastic and those little robots are highly disturbing haha. I've seen this one too often to have forgotten the twist but I never did call it in the past. The music used is boomtastic and as always with these Amicus films the cast is a delight. 8/10

The Beast Must Die (1974) - This crazy whodunnit is my second favourite werewolf film. I love everything about it. Calvin Lockhart here is a fine specimen and his whole manner and voice is so dramatic, love!! The music whether it be the eerie tense times or the funky is all great to me. I am jiggling away on the couch everytime. The plot itself from that mad opening to harassing all of his guests to find out who the werewolf is, Calvin's outfits, Peter Cushing's mad accent that he forgets sometimes, his employee operating all the cameras in the trees and whatnot. It's all ludicrous in the best possible way and I lap every second of it up. The country mansion and gardens settings is wonderful. I love the werewolf break. I just wish I could forget who it was. But I did forget the very ending part which was something [Big Grin] And I don't care that the werewolf is a big fluffy dog. I take dog over CGI werewolf any day of the week!! I love this film! 10/10

And Now The Screaming Starts! - I've never seen that much love for this one but I've always adored it. One of my favourite haunted house films. As much as I love Amicus' modern day horrors I do wish they'd done a few more period ones like this. The score is beautiful, the cast is fantastic as is and then just to top it all off Peter Cushing arrives midway through. The house is the stuff of dreams in all its gothic glory. Stephanie Beacham is marvelous, her final shot in this is incredible. It's creepy, atmospheric and the backstory is heartbreaking. But it's hard to have too much sympathy for Silas as his revenge sucks! Best scene in the graveyard with Charles bashing his relatives bones up, ha! 10/10

I watched The Godfather part II (1974) for the second time this year alone when it aired on Belgian TV last weekend.

I love Michael V. Gazzo in this one, he really steals the show in every scene he's in, even when he's sharing the screen with Al Pacino.

Hightlights (among many) are the chaotic, but wonderfully orchestrated Senate hearings when Willie Cicci (Joe Spinell), Michael Corleone,
and Frankie Pentangeli (Michael Gazzo) are publically interrogated by the Senate committee (in which Roger Corman makes an uncredited
cameo appearance).

I do have mixed feelings about the flashback scene at the end. It's not that i dislike the scene, but i think it would have been better still
if it ended right after Fredo was killed. But this, of course, is just nitpicking on one of the greatest American motion pictures in history !

Robert De Niro, Michael Gazzo, and Lee Strasberg were all nominated for best supporting actor in 1975, with De Niro beating his co-stars,
and winning his first Oscar.

The Vault Of Horror (1973) - This one feels much more of a black comedy than Amicus' usual creepy horror anthology fare. It's not top tier for them but just a whole heap of fun from start to finish. That street shot in the first story is just divine. Wish I could blow that up and put it on my wall. 8/10

Vampire Hookers 1978. An obscure find.
Goofy comical low budget sexploitation flick.
Had some spots that made me laugh and Karen Stride, Lenka Novak and Katie Dolan supplied the excellent eye-candy.

It was the movie "California Gold Rush" An incredible 1946 film directed by R. G. Springsteen and written by Robert Creighton Wiliams. If you are interested in finding more info about this film, then I recommend reading about it on the site, because there you will find interesting information about it and be able to understand whether it will be interesting for you. But personally I really liked it and my friends have already reviewed it on my recommendations.

King Kong (1933) - I hadn't seen this in over 20 years and at first I was thinking it wasn't as good as I remembered. But once it got to the island, bam, non stop thrills. I adore the 2005 version, mostly for the relationship between Kong and Ann. I ball my eyes out at the end of that one. There is none of that feeling in this one for me mainly because Fay Wray is just a screaming bore in it. But I just loved how savage Kong is LOL. Great fun. 9/10
