The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein

Production Year: 1972
Release Date: 07/28/2015
Studio: Kino Lorber
Director:  Jess Franco


A metallic-skinned monster, a vampiric bird woman, and a skeleton-faced cult...All inside one big gloomy castle. Yes, what I've described could only come from the very strange and eccentric mind of Jess Franco. After the evil hypnotist Cagliostro (Howard Vernon) dispatches Dr. Frankenstein and captures Frankenstein's Monster, an incredibly sadistic plan begins to unfold. In order to create a "master race" of people Cagliostro and a very strange bird lady (Melisa; Anne Libert) start lining up females for Frankenstein's...Ahem..."Disposal."


Terminator Genisys


Production Year: 2015
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Director: Alan Taylor
Review written by DaveB

I’ll start by saying that James Cameron’s Terminator movies are a thing of the past. They are pop culture monuments representing an age of discovery and pioneering in film. However, since the third film, these are nothing more than shadows feeding off the previous films’ lore and audience. They can be fun, for sure, but they always struck me as something that might appear in a comic book sequel, rather than a major blockbuster film. That’s exactly what Terminator Genisys feels like, a decent comic book miniseries that is entertaining enough, but doesn’t exactly take itself seriously or aspire to be a worthy follow up to the first two films.

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

It's mid July and while the normal folks are busy planning trips to the lake and having BBQ's we horror fanatics and monster kids are scouring store aisles waiting for that first bit of Halloween merchandise to rear it's orange, ugly head.  The first sighting a grinning pumpkin means the cool, crisp Autumn air is soon to follow.  Aisles full of backpacks and brightly colored markers will get replaced with jack-o-lanterns and skeletons.  It's truly the best time to be a horror nut.

So what have I found so far?  Not a lot.  But what I have seen has been quality which makes me think that we're in for a great Halloween season!
