The third entry in the Elm Street franchise is a lot of people’s favorites after the first film, and it’s easy to see why, with story credits from Wes Craven and Frank Darabont this instalment features Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) on the cusp, he’s still scary, but he’s also starting to introduce some quips to…

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…
