Alabama’s Ghost (1973)

Honorable Mention (Well, some of it is Sci Fi..) This is a totally bizarre, silly, and  wild little film.  It seems a shame so few people have heard of it, let alone seen it. No real summary of the film can do it justice.  A janitor at a Jazz club accidentally discovers a secret trove […]

Link (1986)

Honorable Mention (Well…It might be Science Fiction… Depends on How You Look at it…) Imagine what would have happened if Alfred Hitchcock had made a horror film about a murderous ape. It doesn’t take too much imagination to picture it a lot like Richard Franklin’s Link.  After all, the Australian director was a great admirer […]
