The Picture That’ll Make You… sick sick SICK with Laughter!

The movie begins with a horrible beatnik poet reciting some terrible poetry and that made me almost put it off to watch The Incredible 2-Headed Transplant instead. But hey, since I watched the first minute, I might as well view the next 64. And I’m glad I did, ’cause it’s a pretty damn good black comedy.

In order to live, they will take you one by one … and no one will hear you scream!

A woman in search of her father arrives in a strange town with the help of his increasingly disturbing letters.  I won’t spoil anything by saying this is a zombie film, but it’s not your run of the mill fast-paced zombie horror either. But that isn’t a bad thing.

Release Year: 1932

“We’ll Make Her One of Us!” from the gibbering mouths of these weird creatures came this frenzied cry… no wonder she cringed in horror… this beautiful woman who dared toy with the love of one of them!

This week  we have for you midgets and freaks combined in a little lovestory/drama.

I’m not a reviewer, so I’ll make it short (for reviews you’ll have to look at the rest of the site). This great little movie is about a trapeze artist that marries a midget for his money, plots to kill the poor little person with her lover, and the bizarre things that happen afterwards. Oh, and pinheads ofcourse. Not a horror movie as such (unless you are horrified by dwarfs and limbless men), more a drama wherein the freaks are the good guys and the normal ones scum. As is the case every week, a must see.

God may be a DJ, but Satan is a director

Regarded as one of the first cult-films and the first full-length documentary, this Danish silent movie about witchcraft is not one to miss. Don’t be discouraged by the rather dry first chapter of 12 minutes which shows mostly wood carvings and explains some of the rituals and background of medieval superstitions, as afterwards you’ll be rewarded with a great documentary played out with wonderful acting. The director himself plays Satan, seducing maidens and pestering priests, and does a great job at that. Being a very high budget film for its time, it also has some very realistic make-up and special effects.

A nightmare of terror travelling aboard the Horror Express!

This week we have for you Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing (and Telly Savalas aka Kojak)  in this what many consider a classic horror movie. The plot involves a train, an anthropologist, his colleageu, an unstable monk and the frozen remains of a primitive humanoid. Certainly can’t go wrong. Our first film in colour featured here, and as always (I repeat myself) a must see.

First Film With the Amazing New Wonder EMERGO: The Thrills Fly Right Into The Audience!

The above tagline refers to the special gimmick that was used in the theatre when it was first released. At the right time in the film, a plastic skeleton was flown over the audience as if it came out of the movie, effectively breaking the ‘fourth wall’. Or as they described it: “The Amazing New Emergo! The ghost emerges right off the screen and actually SOARS into the audience!“.

They keep coming back in a bloodthirsty lust for HUMAN FLESH!…

I realise anyone who calls himself somewhat of  a horror fan must’ve seen this movie already, but I couldn’t very well leave it out of our collection of public domain cult movies could I?
