Welcome to a world of crude beauty… of danger and excitement… of wonders, legend, and imagination… Welcome to Harlem, Brother.
I remember this movie from when I watched it as a child on a sunday afternoon on public television and it left quite an impression on me, a certain eyeball-scene in particular. The story’s about an alien who looks just like a regular black man (albeit with some very strange feet) who crashes his spaceship in New York and mixes in with the ‘other immigrants’. He understands people, but is mute himself. At a local bar in Harlem he makes some friends and finds a job using his supernatural powers repairing arcade games.

The Blood Runs In Rivers… And The Drill Keeps Tearing Through Flesh And Bone
“OH FUCK, there’s, like, this guy and he appears to be a maniac in possession of a drill!”: The Movie. A struggling artist, lives in a a shithole with his braindead girl, some shitty punk band moves in next door and never stops playing, inner-city life’s filthiness gets a little on his nerves. So he does what any reasonable fellow would do under these circumstances, and goes on a murdering rampage with a drill.

To commemerate Edgar Allan Poe’s 200th birthday this very day, I thought it would be appropriate to break my rule of one movie a week and present you these wonderful films based on Poe’s story The Fall of the House of Usher. Both films are made in 1928 and are silent movies. If you don’t want to offend Edgar Allan Poe’s ghost, you should at least watch the fantastic surreal shortfilm by James Sibley Watson, but if you want to show his rotting corpse the respect it so deserves you’d better watch the full movie by Jean Epstein too.

One Wants to Love, One Wants to Kill! Two heads grafted to the body of a giant!
It’s not as bad as it sounds. That’s about it, really. Any real reviewer/filmfreak, feel free to expand upon my succinct yet true description of this glorious moment in film-history. If it sounds interesting, check it out I’d say.

Director: Ubaldo Ragona & Sidney Salkow
Writer: Richard Matheson (novel “I Am Legend”) & William F. Leicester
Release Year: 1964
Alive among the lifeless… alone among the crawling creatures of evil that make the night hideous with their inhuman craving!
An adaptation of the novel I Am Legend about a man trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, defending his home against hordes of zombie-vampires every night. There are many adaptations of this book and this is considered by many the best (the people with taste), which is not that surprising since it has Vincent Price instead of Will freakin’ Smith or Charlton cold dead hands Heston. And because the mood of the movie set by the desperation and loneliness of Morgan ofcourse. Also notice the similarities with Night of the Living Dead, released 4 years later.
