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
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
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
Bittersweet Love (1976)
They dealt with incest by sudsing, name dropping and securing an actress of "natural" superiority. Points were made and evaluations considered. Celeste Holm didn't waste her legend, the compassion was still in her eyes. 07-Jun-2018
Exorcist, The (1973)
Nightmare of my childhood dreams. It scared the Jesus out of me and allowed me to champion fear. It's also a metaphor for how parents perceive teenage evolution. 29-May-2018
Marilyn Chambers embodies and Cronenberg almost defeats the improbability of the story. 16-May-2018
King Kong (1976)
Jessica overcame it, Jeff squishes what he can from unkempt, the effects now match the script (awful) and Kong is perverted. It's beautiful score deserves a better movie. 18-Apr-2018
