    I really want to see those Pumpkinhead sequels (as well as the ROTLD sequels) but something is making me avoid them....

    7th - The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932)

    An especially enjoyable pulp crime with Boris Karloff giving a very good performance, you never quite know what's going on in his mind. He's able to keep the character menacing while all the time being very reserved.

    Myrna Loy also gives a surprisingly lurid performance as a sadist, as she excitedly orders nubian slaves how exactly to whip her white male captive. Her performance is very haunting as she seems to have made herself a perfect component for Fu Manchu's mad schemes.

    They just don't make 'em like they use to.

    Night Monster
    Captive Wild Woman

    I watched the entire set in one sitting! Ok, Ok, so each film is no more than an hour long :D. The real gems of the set though were Man Made Monster and Captive Wild Woman. Those two were great fun. Still had time to watch a couple more as well.

    Finished off my Ultimate Sci-Fi Collection, Volume Two last night. What a fun and cheesy set of films!

    I'm going to crack open my Universal Horror Collection tonight.

    satans-sadists, Sugar Hill & Blacula in the theater? AWESOME!

    Yeah, I had lots of fun with that double feature yesterday. The Castro Theatre in SF had a weekend long horror film festival.

    In all honesty, it was the first time I ever saw Sugar Hill and I wasn't disappointed at all. Blaxploitation, voodoo, and zombies. Can't find a better mix than that!

    Blacula is a long time personal favorite of mine. The film's director William Crain wasn't scheduled to be there and was a last minute surprise. I got to talk to him after the movie for at least ten minutes. What a cool guy! He had a lot of interesting stories to relate about the making of the film and different people in the cast.

    Both film prints of Sugar Hill and Blacula were in surprisingly great condition.

    10/7: BLACULA - (theatrical showing). I saw this at the drive-in when it was first released but I was too young to stay awake to see the ending. I fell asleep after a vampire is running down the hall in slow-motion. I have had the DVD from MGM since it was first released and never watched the whole film. That all changed and I loved every minute of it. Great film. Entertaining and well-performed.

    SUGAR HILL - My parents drug us again to the drive-in for this film back in the day. I had my pj's on and the only thing I remembered were the eyes of the zombies. The rest - I conked out cold asleep. I have not seen the film since until yesterday. I cannot stress how entertaining this was. Let's just say, it hit the right spot. Marki Bey was S M O O T H. Loved her performance. Spot-on entertainment (for me, that is). Loved it.

    RED-HEADED CORPSE - I heart Retromedia.

    SATANIK - DITTO. Fun film with just the right kitschy soundtrack that just sharpens my fangs. Fun shtuff.

    October 8: Flesh Eaters From Outer Space + Invasion For Flesh And Blood

    [​IMG]

    Not a Troma in-house production but gory and tasteless fun nontheless. I especially enjoyed the hell out of Flesh Eaters From Outer Space which was crap & cheesetastic.

    Man, it's already the 8th! I need to catch up. Over the weekend I watched for the first time Scarecrows and Singapore Sling(not really horror, but you can absolutely file it under weird ass shit!). Also bought The Fog(original) from the $5 bin at Wal-mart and plan on watching that tonight.

    Eyes of a Stranger
    Horror Island (1941)


    I am not sure how I missed Eyes of a Stranger all these years, seeing as it is from my favorite genre of horror movies, from my favorite period of said genre, and shares a name with one of my all time favorite songs, but it sure was good. I really wish I had seen it ages ago. Hell, I had never even heard of it until a recent slasher poll here.

    Horror Island was a silly, goofy, atmospheric little Universal Horror movie. Needless to day, it was a blast.
