The Black Cat (1981): Lucio Fulci Gets Some Pussy

Edgar Allan Poe’s The Black Cat first came to life in 1843 when it was published in the Saturday Evening Post. Since then it has spun quite the long cinematic history beginning with a 1934 version starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. Like tonight’s adaptation, it bears little resemblance to Poe’s original tale of psychological […]

B.L.O.G Presents Bandidas(2006)

Welcome Ladies and Gents to another edition of Beautiful Ladies of Genre. Tonight we have a film that I’ve seen at least a dozen times, and I’m not proud… or ashamed to be a fan of….. People think that good old trash cinema is dead, but in the last two nights I watched Beyonce beat […]

A Tale of Two Matt Hunters: Norris vs. Dudikoff

I could not resist getting into The Chuck Norris Blogothon hosted by Matt-Suzaka over at Chuck Norris Ate My Baby, and I wanted to talk about one of my favorite films of his, 1985’s Invasion U.S.A.

It seems that the average on “Joe” just isn’t what it used to be. Speaking of Joes that’d defy the average, there’s one that I […]

B.L.O.G Presents Angel (1984)

Hello folks and welcome to the first post of April, and let me tell you March was a great month. Not only did I get to watch a lot of movies, but more of you came to check out what was going on at the Lair as well. So I just wanted to say thanks […]

The Lightning Bug Dollar Deals: Abraxas

So with bailouts going on left and right, I’m back to pitch in again to bail out your genre movie collection. Tonight’s movie is one that has been a “value” title nearly since it’s release in 1991. I recall seeing it on video for three or four bucks back in the nineties, and while I […]
