Terrifying Tuesday: Mausoleum (1983)

It’s Terrifying Tuesday again, and have I got one for you folks out there. It’s the sweet story of an orphaned girl who grows up to have everything a girl could ask for. She has a fine house, a loving husband, and her boobs occasionally turn into flesh eating demons. So maybe it’s not the […]

Terrifying Tuesday: Frontière(s)

What is it about France lately? Well, I think I’m caught in the aftershock of watching Martyrs, and I feel the need to dig further into this new wave of French horror. When I was checking out some of the titles out there, I saw that this one had been banned in Thailand for its […]

Terrifying Tuesday: Susperia (1977)

It’s well known, to readers of The Lair that is, that I have yet to fall into the throws of passionate love with Dario Argento which seems to dominate the minds of many horror fans. Today however that day may well have finally arrived. I will admit my experience with Dario is kind of limited, […]

Terrifying Tuesday: The Purge (2013)

There are many ways to unsettle or frighten an audience in the world of cinema. There are probably as many as there are people because there is no telling what might be scary to one person or another. Lately I’ve talked about films that use sound as the device to horrify, and films with such […]

The Burning (1981) or Camping with George, Tom, and Harvey

I never went to summer camp, and the reason is simple. I don’t like the outdoors, outdoor sports, bugs, snakes, swimming in lakes, archery, making leather wallets, or getting gruesomely killed by a vengeful psycho. OK, perhaps the latter didn’t come into the equation when I was a lad, but it sure as hell would […]

Terrifying Tuesday: BOO (2005)

Hello again, folks. It’s Tuesday and time for another journey into the macabre. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the European cinema this month, and so I decided to give some time for a fine product of North America. I selected a film which had somehow gotten on my Netflix queue and sent to me, […]

Terrifying Tuesday: Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984)

Vincent Price had and long a storied career that streaches from his days as a leading man in The House of the Seven Gables (1940), through the classic horror era and the AIP Poe flicks, and ending in a string of underwhelming roles in the late 1980’s. While he capped his career off with a bittersweet turn […]

Terrifying Tuesday: Black Christmas (1974)

With only two days until Christmas to go, I just couldn’t hold this picture back any longer. I had originally planned to roll this out on Friday for the last leg of Feature Presentation and to tie in with that wacky Canadian holiday, Boxing Day, but with the holidays almost in full swing and lots […]

Terrifying Tuesday: The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970)

Welcome back to the second Terrifying Tuesday that was chosen by you, the readers of the LBL. Last week I took on the number one choice, Unberto Lenzi’s Hell of the Living Dead, and this week we get to look at the runner up. Dario Argento is a name synonymous with the horror genre to […]
