Trog (1970)

I was halfway through this one when I realized that it seemed very familiar. I’d seen virtually the same plot in Amicus Productions’ The Mind of Mr. Soames.  While the two came out the same year (and Mr. Soames doesn’t seem to have reached the theaters until 1971), the Amicus film was based on a […]

Dollman (1991)

The implications seem almost impossibly strange, particularly for an independent film:  A remake?  Of a film three years old? Toto, we’re not in Oz anymore. But that isn’t what […]
