Le Notti Del Terrore (1981) – Andrea Bianchi

Somehow, we’re still in the so bad, we’re not quite sure they’ve come around to good again section of the zombie oeuvre in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies. I’m definitely getting a fresh perspective on this sub-genre as it seems I’ve been very fortunate in my selection of zombie movies up to this time….

Indiana Jones and The Interior World (1992) – Rob MacGregor

1929 Easter Island Rob MacGregor comes to the end of his run on the Indiana Jones novels this week, and I have to say I’m rather thankful for it, because if you thought Kingdom of the Crystal was bad you have not read this book. This one is terrible, and it doesn’t come near anything…

Space: 1999 (1976) – All That Glisters, and The Taybor

You thought some of the previous episodes were strange (and occasionally bad?), well this one, All That Glisters, is right up there. And it’s the first one up this week as we jump into more adventures with Moonbase Alpha. Set some 562 days after leaving Earth orbit, All That Glisters was written by Keith Miles,…

Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959) – Ed Wood Jr.

While not necessarily a vampire movie, Plan 9 From Outer Space, undeniably one of the worst films ever made (which in turn made it a cult classic), is the next title in the vampire section of John Landis’ Monsters in the Movies from DK Canada. The film does feature a plan to resurrect the dead,…

Blood of Dracula (1957) – Herbert L. Strock

I knew some of the films I would watch as I work my way through John Landis’ Monsters in the Movies (available from DK Canada) would be bad, I don’t think I was ready for how bad. Blood of Dracula is that bad. A horrible film that required a lot to drink in its hour…

The Return of Dracula (1958) – Paul Landres

Dracula does California! And it’s gonna be an entertaining (and pretty bad ride) as I dig into the next Vampire title in DK Books’ Monsters in the Movies by director John Landis. A Dracula (Francis Lederer) with some strange powers – like apparating (and not a glimpse of fangs) comes to smalltown California, USA after…

The 15:17 to Paris (2018): Blu-Ray Review

Clint Eastwood’s latest directorial effort hits blu-ray today from Warner Brothers, and is based on the true story of three Americans, friends, who stopped a planned terrorist attack on a Paris bound train on 21 August, 2015. As much as I love Eastwood’s body of work, both as a director and as an actor, this…

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) – Frank Capra

DK Canada brings me this Frank Capra classic from its What Else to Watch list following its recommendation of It’s A Wonderful Life. THIS movie makes me regret the fact that schools, as a rule, no longer have civics classes. It needs to be seen, as it shows the good and the bad of democracy,…

Battlefield Earth (2000) – Roger Christian

Sometimes, bad is bad. And this stop with the Sci-Fi Chronicles Book demonstrates how bad. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about this film, and it’s a wonder that any of those involved walked away with the semblance of a career.  Based on L. Ron Hubbard’s titanic novel, the film stars John Travolta, Forest Whitaker, and…
