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 […]

Feature Presentation:Santa Claws (1996)

Welcome back to week 3 of Feature Presentation:The Nightmare on Christmas. Having already seen wrestlers grapple with puns in Santa’s Slay and why traumatized kids should never grow up to play Santa in Silent Night, Deadly Night, this week’s feature includes a special Christmas treat for me, or so I thought. As I’ve stated many, […]

I, Madman (1989)- Reading Might Be Fundamental, But It Can Be Murder!

Once again, it’s time to throw open the video tape vaults here at the Lair and delve into another diabolical selection from the world of VHS. That’s right; it’s time for another thrilling installment of It Came From Video Tape. Today’s selection, I, Madman, is one that I recall staring at me from the racks […]

La ragazza dal pigiama giallo [a.k.a The Pajama Girl Case] (1972): The PJs That Leave You D.O.A.

So last week I took some for watching non-traditional giallo The House with Laughing Windows and coming away with less than a smile on my face. For this week I thought I would look at another giallo that doesn’t fit the typical mold. While La ragazza dal pigiama giallo (a.k.a The Pajama Girl Case or […]

Turkey Thursday:The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1976)

When I first looked up the IMDB page for Charles Pierce I was quite impressed. I scanned down the role of credits Coffe, Black Belt Jones, and The Outlaw Josey Wales among them, but then I noticed that those credits were for set decorating. Needless to say even though all three of those movies have […]

Hitch on the Hump: Frenzy (1972)

Welcome back to another installment of Hitch on the Hump. I know it has been quite some time since the last appearance of the Master of Suspense, but now he’s back and I’m ready to resume my goal of reviewing all of his films. To kick the series off again, I wanted to revisit Frenzy(1972) […]

Jeepers Creepers (2001) Death Loves Johnny Mercer

Holy shazbot, this makes three days in a row, and this time I’m back with an old favorite. Sometimes with all the new flicks I want to talk about, I neglect to go back and really talk about old favorites that deserve a place on your shelf, your queue, and definitely on the Lair. I’m […]

Hitch on the Hump: The Lodger (1927)

Of all things, we have electric cables to thank for Alfred Hitchcock making his way into the film world. In 1918, Hitchcock was a nineteen year old man working in the advertising department of Henley’s, a company specializing in early electrical supplies. At the time, there was no separation between the writers and artists in […]

Bloody New Year (1987) We’re Gonna Party Like It’s 1959

When it comes to holiday themed genre films, some holidays have it easier than others. Christmas is by far the champ while St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Valentine’s Day, and Arbor Day have to scrape by with a few selections. When it comes to New Years, you’ve only got a couple of choices, most popularly 1980’s […]

Who Are These Kids? It’s My Bloody Birthday!

So I’ve been trying to enjoy my birthday all day long, but I just haven’t been able to get any peace. These three little kids have been following me everywhere, and something gives me the impression that they’re trying to kill me. I went to Denny’s to get my complimentary Birthday Slam, and they tried […]
