It’s All Connected: Dr. Phibes Rises Again! (1972)

I was pretty stoked when I realized that The Devil’s Rain director Robert Fuest also did the two Phibes films! Vincent Price is one of my all-time favorites, so I was very excited to get to him for It’s All Connected 2020. As it happens, I actually watched The Abominable Dr. Phibes for last year’s … Continue reading It’s All Connected: Dr. Phibes Rises Again! (1972)

Halloween Scene: Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) & Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972)

Regular readers might have noticed a bit of a drop off in horror movie reviews lately, that’s because I’ve been saving up for October. Like many of my fellow bloggers, I’ll be attempting to watch and review a horror movie every single weekday (who has time to blog on the weekend?). And then another one. … Continue reading Halloween Scene: Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) & Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972)

It’s All Connected: Theater Of Blood (1973)

After making my way through a few less-Vincent Pricey-than-I-hoped movies like Alice Cooper: Welcome To My Nightmare and Escapes, I wanted to get back to a full-blown performance for It’s All Connected, and, as it turned out, 1973’s Theater Of Blood was exactly what I wanted!

It’s All Connected: House Of Usher (1960)

In a delightful bit of It’s All Connected kismet, I got my copy of the Scream Factory re-issue of the original Vincent Price Collection on Blu-ray right after finishing the second Phibes movie! I missed the original version of this set when it came out a few years back and always regretted it. I would … Continue reading It’s All Connected: House Of Usher (1960)

It’s All Connected: The Devil’s Rain (1975)

In the wake of all those very intense (and weird and problematic) Brian De Palma movies, I wanted something very different for my next entry in It’s All Connected 2020. I also really enjoyed seeing vintage John Travolta in Blow Out, so his was the first page I began going through on IMDb. There I … Continue reading It’s All Connected: The Devil’s Rain (1975)

Halloween Scene: The Raven (1963) & The Tower Of London (1962)

Over the weekend I found myself in an increasingly rare place: looking for something to watch on a Saturday night. Of course, I flipped through Netflix, Amazon Video and Hulu trying to figure out what to watch, but it was a trip to my trusty DVD rack that finally helped me figure out what to … Continue reading Halloween Scene: The Raven (1963) & The Tower Of London (1962)

Halloween Scene: 2015 Horror Recap

Usually around the end of a year I take some time to go through my favorite albums of the year and I still might do that, but I also felt like looking back at my favorite horror experiences of 2015. Thanks to Netflix, the library and a gaggle of fun freelance assignments around Halloween I … Continue reading Halloween Scene: 2015 Horror Recap

Halloween Scene: The Tomb Of Ligeia (1964)

Last week the weather turned gray and all I wanted to do was sit down and watch a marathon of Val Lewton, Universal Monster and Vincent Price movies. Of course, I have two small kids, so I only got to watch one of them, but it was still a great experience. A few months ago … Continue reading Halloween Scene: The Tomb Of Ligeia (1964)

Halloween Scene: Re-Animator (1985)

When I was about 15 or 16 and just getting into the world of horror movies, it seemed like I’d never be able to catch up on all the classics. Of course, I knew about the big franchises like Friday The 13th and A Nightmare On Elm Street — what kid in the 80s didn’t? … Continue reading Halloween Scene: Re-Animator (1985)

Casting Internets

Thanks to a vacation last week I got way behind in both blogging and reading links. I got caught up recently and here’s what I found interesting. As always, I will hype my own stuff. Before SDCC got underway I talked to Brandon Graham about his amazing series Prophet, Jamie S. Rich about the upcoming … Continue reading Casting Internets
