    10/4: COMEDY OF TERRORS/THE RAVEN
    10/5: DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE - theatrical showing. DVD
    projection (I suspect) done perfectly. 3/4 full house.
    FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED - theatrical showing. Genuine
    35mm - excellent, vibrant, near-perfect print. Plays even better at
    on the big screen. 3/4 full house, audience loved it.
    KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE - Vibrant 35 mm print. Only
    a few marks here and there. Otherwise excellent presentation.
    What a colorful, festive flick. Fast-paced and FUN. Had cool
    "TransWorld" logo at the start (good times!)

    5th - Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968)

    An interesting premise, but ultimately I think not very well executed. There are a lot of nice touches, but none of the characters seem redeemable enough to care. Barbara Ewing looks great in lingerie corset, though unfortunately Veronica Carlson only has a few outings in a conservative nightie.

    6th - Mark of the Vampire (1935)

    Eh... Feels like Tod Browing was trying too hard to out do James Whale. A lot of the subtle creepy humor of Dracula is exchanged for melodramatic spook house frights. Much like Old Dark House I don't feel it works. They nailed the atmosphere though, all that lingering fog is so perfect. And Carroll Borland is a true find, the more I read about her the more fascinated I become.

    I think I'm burning myself out on vampires, not that much of a fan to begin with. I need some sexier ones...

    I was just about ask the same thing.

    BTW, I tried to warn everyone about Supercroc in my "track the movies you watch" post. Consider this a second warning.:D

    Nothing spectacular but entertaining enough. All sorts of body parts strewn around and an ending that at least wasn't completely what I was expecting. Probably good to watch with a bunch of friends or on a day when you don't want something too deep.

    There should be a sticky about this one. I ended up turning it off. Guess some might enjoy the complete lack of logic, acting ability, and horrible cgi fx but I just couldn't stand it any more.

    One thing i did enjoy and made me laugh was when
    the supposed expert is looking at the radar which is showing an obvious shape of a crocodile, complete with moving legs and she says "it could be a swarm of bees". :eek1: :lol:
    <----maybe not really a spoiler but you really need to experience this moment first hand to really get the WTF reaction.

    ...maybe on another night I might enjoy this in a so horribly bad it's good kind of way....

    Not a great movie by any stretch, but, unlike part 3, it had some really fun, cheesy moments that made me glad I gave it a rent. My favorite:
    "You cannot kill Pumpkinhead with bullets!!"

    2 minutes later

    Everyone, including the person who made that declaration, practically line up to shoot at and subsequently be killed by Pumpkinhead.

    :lol:

    10/6: THE RAVEN - (again) on DVD...twice more.

    DEMONS 2 - (the newest DVD). Gorgeous DVD but there's no
    fixing the few jittering scenes (Sally's parents out on the town,
    Jacob and co. getting out of the car, Hannah locked in the bathroom).
    A great buy, nonetheless.

    BLOOD AND ROSES - (theatrical showing). Roger Vadim is THE MAN in
    my book. This is Criterion material all the way. Excellent film! It's
    a sure-buy. There's one nightmare sequence that would fit right at
    home in either Nightmare on Elm Street 1, 3 or 7. Elegant, nicely acted
    and rather timeless in a way (the ancient Italian setting with
    the "current-again" fashions).

    THE HOWLING - (theatrical showing). Joe Dante's personal print -
    amazing color! He said the black-level was begun fading, but it still
    looked fine to me. This movie plays very, very well on the big screen.
    The actors are excellent - no performance elicited any snarky remarks.
    People got the humor in all the right parts. Terri's persuit thru the
    woods is an underrated sequence it's excellent. Belinda Balaski's
    body language showing her discomfort mixed with curiosity through-
    out the sequence is terrific. A bonafide deserved classic. I never
    found THE HOWLING to be campy - still don't.

    RE-ANIMATOR - (theatrical showing). Very good print with the old
    Empire Pictures logo (is that a tear in my eye forming????). This film
    for all the times I never finished a single viewing on DVD - plays even
    better on the big screen. Maybe it didn't help seeing the DVD in bits
    pieces (pun???) but this is made for the big screen more than a TV.
    I was impressed. I enjoyed the dialogue and the drama surrounding
    the grue. Terrific film - I now "get it", okay?
