The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) – Jim Sharman

The mad scientist chapter of DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies brings me the always enjoyable, and sing a long to every song, film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick. It’s a musical send-up of science fiction and horror films of the 50s and 60s, that also reveled…

War of the Worlds (1988) – The Resurrection

Back in 1988, a year after Paramount launched the Enterprise back into space with The Next Generation, they turned to another sci-fi property they owned, with the intentions of bringing it to the small screen in a weekly syndicated series. Serving as a sequel to the classic 1953 film, the series developed by showrunner Greg…

The Shark is Still Working (2007) -Erik Hollander

Oh Jaws. There’s never not a good time for me to watch this movie, so I was delighted when it showed up in DK Canada’s The Movie Book. But having reviewed it for the blog previous to this I moved onto the What Else to Watch list, and there were only a couple of titles…

Mission: Impossible Fallout (2018) – Blu-Ray

Paramount Pictures invites you to bring home the next (and biggest – to date) assignment from the IMF as Mission: Impossible Fallout comes home on blu-ray. We’ve followed Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise)  since 1996, over the course of fifth films, and now, the sixth film, is probably the biggest, most impressive entry into the franchise…

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. Instead, playing more for comedy, this vampire film is the next stop in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies. The cast is led by…

The Lost Boys (1987) – Joel Schumacher

My trio of favorite vampire films is now complete with the viewing of 1987’s The Lost Boys. If Fright Night got me into horror movies, and Near Dark showed me how violent and bloody vampires could be, then The Lost Boys showed me how cool vampires could be (and how awesome the occasional vampire hunters…

The Haunting of Hill House (1963) – Shirley Jackson

Having just finished the amazing Netflix series (seriously, watch it) and loving the Robert Wise film, I felt it was time to re-read the original novel, something I’m sure I hadn’t done for about twenty years. In fact, I think I read it just before that abomination by Jan De Bont was released in 1999….
