Grave Of The Vampire (1972)
Silliness about a resurrected vamp raping a mod chick that dies delivering his baby. The baby ages into a superhero hunk with little gift of gab and limited supernatural powers. The fair lady hired to scream, couldn't. Fast forward to the fight scene which has Thor mashing a tired Michael Morbius with no effects and generating loads of laughs. 24-Mar-2020
Go Ask Alice (1973)
Diary of a teen with an addictive personality. It is nice to hear the words of tragedy being spoken by tragic and even though it enlightens, it doesn't resolve. Addictions occur the moment you can't latch on to life. It provides good details on soft parenting, physical instability, sex and pressure. The film bestows as many blessings as calamities. Griffith gives good priest, Mackenzie Phillips haunted and the Shat(ner) tries to steal the film with his blinkers. 24-Feb-2020
Airport '77 (1977)
What it reserves in thrills it expounds in detail and raw film work. The pros lathered the soap like it was Shakespeare, it was diverse and actors were allowed to sweat. A movie that sits better out of its time. 21-Feb-2020
Long Weekend (1978)
Naturists get punished for victimizing nature. A scary environmentalist panty creamer. 05-Feb-2020
Beyond The Door (1974)
Trying to recreate the horror of The Exorcist on a scaled budget and via a disorderly presentation. The soul music was vibing but out of place. The shocks consisted of kids swearing, getting buckled and mama make outs. Juliet Mills succeeded wiping out sweet "Nanny and the Professor" memories and replacing them with disturbing ones. It had some effective scares that would have triggered had they been taken seriously. 29-Jan-2020
It's a high art profile of a Batman villain directed by Friday The Thirteenth. Margret brings her heroine to life by embodying the excited frustration of her realistic innocence for magic. Her character is underwritten and suffers from "who cares" but she was in it. Hopkins is our favorite crazy man whose practice and natural talent always have a way of invading its space. It is not a clean performance. He hits as many times as he bounces but what he lands is electric. A film, that in time, might grow into something. 11-Jan-2020
Daughters Of Darkness (1971)
Newlyweds get their honeymoon interrupted by voracious lesbians. It's mystery stays locked until the end, probably so we don't question how illogical it is. The protagonists keep it sexually charged and violently demeaning. 18-Dec-2019
Terminal Man (1974)
Adding a computer to a killer's brain was supposed to rehabilitate him. It was progressive. It had a prominent female doctor and a black magician's assistant.
Joan Hackett was an accomplished Sarah Paulson without the amount of accolades.
George Segal was dumbfounding, cringingly stamping the mediocrity evident in the poor treatment of a great story. 22-Nov-2019
Last House On The Left, The (1972)
It's astounding that the film hammers the same political perplexities that we still argue today. Even though Craven stages with high buffoonery and jump cuts, the idea of the horror writhes from the ditch. 26-Oct-2019
Blume In Love (1973)
A man thinks he can redeem his indiscretions by realizing his wife is the love of his life. The women keep it real, the story never flinches and George Segal keeps it nervously serial. The outcome is so fucked up it loses its purpose. 14-May-2019
Season 5, episode 18: Samantha and Endora rap. 10-Feb-2019
7 Tabithas, 5 Aunt Hagathas, 2 Gladys Kravitzes, 2 Louise Tates, 2 Darrins, 1 Endora, 1 Uncle Arthur, 1 Maurice, 1 Dr. Bombay and the one and only, Samantha. 21-Jul-2017
Honeymooners Christmas Special, The (1977)
Art that was dethroned because the husband was always threatening to send his wife to the moon. It was an idle threat, Alice stood up for herself and the moon seemed like a better alternative to the planet my mother kept landing on.
Still humble, hard working, lacerating and funny. For Adults Only. 20-Jan-2019
God Told Me To (1976)
The commotion was executed to impress Hitchcock. Obsessive beliefs create boundaries and it was impressive seeing a policeman do his job. 02-Dec-2018
Confessions of a Pop Performer (1975)
It's a constant pile-up you can't stop watching. 25-Sep-2018
25,0000 Pyramid, The (1974-1991)
Shelley Smith was a gorgeous brain and the vampire was condescending. 17-Sep-2018
It's a documentation of history. I am awe-struck by how quick witted and intelligent we once were. 09-Aug-2018
