Vampire in Brooklyn (1995) – Wes Craven

There was just no way this one was going to work. But, it’s the next one in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies book, so I was happy to at least take a look at it. Hearing about those involved in the film’s production behind and in front of the camera, you had to wonder…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) – Fran Rubel Kuzui

Before she stormed the small screen for seven years, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, was a theatrical film that didn’t quite get what Joss Whedon was trying to do with the genre.

Running October 11th through to the 19th the genre festival features films from around the globe that highlight horror, action and science fiction films that…

Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995) – Mel Brooks

It was going to happen sooner or later. I was going to come across the first of the parody/comedy films that sprang up around vampires as I continue to work my way through the highly enjoyable Monsters in the Movies written by John Landis, and released through DK Canada. So it’s time to let Mel…

How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) -Jean Negulesco

The next big recommendation in DK Canada’s The Movie Book is the comedy classic, Some Like It Hot, which I have previously screened, and loved, so I was delighted to dive into the What Else to Watch list and see what new delights I would discover within. First up is How to Marry a Millionaire,…
