The Grab Bag: Ils (2006)

Into the murky depths of the great beyond, I reach my hand down into the Grab Bag once again, and this time come up with a movie I’ve wanted to see for a while. With the to-do about French horror with Inside, Martyrs, and Frontier(s), I wanted to check out the French film that has […]

The Grab Bag: Four of the Apocalypse (Quattro dell’apocalisse) (1975)

Fabio Testi, the last time we saw him he came out of the grab bag with a gripping performance in What Have You Done To Solonge? With a beard and cardigan he was the very manner of the ’70’s scamp. Tonight’s film finds him in a very different seventies, but still a scoundrel in his own right. The […]

The Grab Bag: What Have You Done To Solange? (1972)

Heya, Moonies. As you may have noticed I made a few changes to my weekly lineup. Gone are the Sunday Funnies and in it’s place you’ll now find The Grab Bag. I’ve started this segment because I felt that I had given myself precious little wiggle room on what to cover, and some of what […]

Enzo Castellari’s The Heroin Busters (1977)

It’s Monday folks and as usual I’m diggin’ in The Grab Bag once again. Seeing as Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds release is getting closer, I thought I’d sit down and take a look at the film Castellari put out directly before his original film Inglorious Bastards. If it was made today, people would say Enzo was ripping off […]

The Grab Bag- “ffolkes” (1979)

It’s the start of the working week again, and it’s time once more to reach into the grab bag and pull out something to watch. Perhaps I should have said that “it’s time once Moore” because today’s film stars non other than Sir Roger Moore. As with any actor who is tasked with playing James […]

The Grab Bag: Blood Song (1982) with Frankie Avalon

Hello all and I hope everyone had a Merry X-mas. I know I did, and I got lots of new films to review for you faithful Moonies. As we get to the end of the year and the beginning of January, it’s a time for change, and here at the Lair it’s no different. I just wanted […]

The Grab Bag: Ben X (2007)

Hello folks, and welcome to this week’s Grab Bag. In an effort to bring you all kinds of films, sometimes I just have to take a chance on something, but compared to some of the fare I’ve been looking at lately, it’s a big shift in gears. I don’t know what else to say about […]

The Grab Bag: Battle Beyond The Stars (1980)

Inside of The Grab Bag, you never know what you might get. This time when I opened it up there, staring back at me, was the vastness of space. It was kind of like looking at movie house marquee in the waning years of the seventies. After Star Wars defied all logic to become an […]
