Michael Rhodes (played by Robert Stack) is just your average, every day tax attorney. He has a strong marriage to Christine (Vera Miles), a teenage daughter named Melissa (Margaret Willock), a best friend (Herb Edelman) who has far less hair than he does, and a dog that barks at strangers.

The 1980 film, Death Ship, opens with a black freighter ominously sailing across the ocean in the middle of the night.  The freighter appears to be deserted but, when a cruise ship appears over the horizon, we suddenly hear disembodied German voices announcing that the enemy is in sight and it’s time to take battle […]

The First Power (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

In this 1990 horror film, Lou Diamond Phillips plays Russell Logan, a Los Angeles police detective who specializes in capturing and sometimes killing serial killers.  (“So far,” a news reporter breathlessly tells us, “Detective Logan has captured or killed three serial killers!”)  His latest triumph is the capture of Patrick Channing (Jeff Kober), also known as […]

“I was a teenage Frankenstein!” “Of course you were, dear.” This 1957 film tells the story of Professor Frankenstein (Whit Bissell), an English scientist who comes to America and promptly sets about trying to create his own creature.  I guess we shouldn’t be surprised, considering that his name is Frankenstein and all.  Anyway, the professor […]

House of Dark Shadows (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

There’s a lot that you can say about this vampire film from 1970 but I think it can all be summed up with one word: relentless. A lot of this is because House of Dark Shadows is a film adaptation of a daytime drama.  Over the course of six sesons, Dark Shadows ran for a […]

Lisa (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I recently watched Lisa, a horror/thriller hybrid from 1990. Can you guess why? Now, there are a number of possible reasons.  It is October, which means that I’m going to be spending this entire month watching and reviewing horror movies.  And there’s the fact that I have a weakness for horror films from the late […]

How do you make a monster? According to this 1958 film, the man to ask is Pete Dumond! As played by Robert H. Harris, Pete Dumond is the chief make-up artist at American International Pictures.  He’s so good that he can easily transform handsome teen idols like Tony Mantell (Gary Conway) and Larry Drake (Gary […]
