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 […]

Dollar Deals: Five Minutes to Live (1961) starring Johnny Cash

Sometimes when you’re diving in the bins of Dollar movies, it’s a chore. Really on several fronts. I am a compulsive buyer and bargain hunter, so when I see flicks for a buck well I don’t hold back. This is what leads me to have two or three copies of Black Cobra (which we’ll get […]

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 […]

Halloween Top 13: The Remake – #8: Body Snatchers (1993)

Last year when Werner Herzog released his film Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call: New Orleans, it really amused me how bent out of shape Bad Lieutenant director Abel Ferrara got from the idea of his film being remade. Anyone who read anything about Herzog’s film would have found out that the title of the Ferrara’s […]

The Blob (1958): When Good Jell-O Goes Bad

Ivan S. Yeaworth Jr. started his career in 1956 with a film called The Flaming Teen-Ape, a church backed morality tale about the evils of alcohol. Two years later he was back with a different kind of a lesson. One so beautiful in its eloquence it’s been overlooked as a divine truth. Simply put, don’t […]

Multi-Monday with Enzo’s The Big Racket and Fulci’s Perversion Story

This weekend I got a chance to check out a couple of great films, and I thought I would take Monday to give you folks a double dose of Italians. Both Enzo G. Castellari and Lucio Fulci are responsible for some of my favorite films like Street Law and Cat in the Brain, but they […]

The LBL Presents: Ladies Night- Beat the Devil (1953)

Hey, hey. The Bug here posting on a special Wednesday to kick off Ladies Night which hopefully will be a monthly feature from Miss Directed and Fran Goria. Starting next month Thursdays will becomethHERSdays with flicks focusing on the kick ass ladies of the silver screen, so look for Ladies Night there. Without further ado […]

The Deadly Doll’s Pick: Baxter (1989)

Welcome everyone to another brand new feature here at the Lair. One of my favorite bloggers is Ms. Emily of The Deadly Doll’s House of Horror Nonsense, and she has agreed to swap films with me once a month. This time out I chose for her the 1976 wormy feature Squirm, and in return she […]

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 […]

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’s a film full of classic Norris badassary, and it was something of a childhood favorite of mine. However, […]
