She Demons (1958)

I can’t help comparing She Demons to another movie I watched not too long before it: the Sixties B-Horror movie The Flesh Eaters (1964). After all, the two were made only a few years apart and have nearly identical settings and a remarkably similar plot. But The Flesh Eaters is a minor B-Movie classic, and […]

I Eat Your Skin (1971)

(AKA Voodoo Blood Bath,  Zombie Bloodbath, Invasion of the Zombies, Zombie, Zombies, Voodoo Island) Uggh.  What a title. Fortunately it really doesn’t fit. Don’t be fooled by the date, either.  Director Del “Horror of Party Beach” Tenney actually made this one in 1964 but it went unreleased until some marketing “genius” got the idea of […]

The Wild World of Batwoman (1966)

(aka She Was a Hippy Vampire) This is probably Jerry Warren’s best film. Yes, I know I said that about Frankenstein Island.  And, yes, I know that isn’t saying much. But what we’ve got here is so strange and so… Okay, I can’t help it, it’s the right word: …”Batty”, that it defies any rational explanation. […]

The Green Slime (1968)

I’ll admit it. I like this one. I don’t care how many people call The Green Slime one of the worst films ever made. Okay, we’re talking about an Italian/Japanese/American co-production, so we know we’re already in trouble. And, if that isn’t enough, it’s actually a sequel — the fifth in a series. Well, more […]

Invasion, U.S.A. (1952)

It was a very strange moment. A mysterious aggressor nation (do we really have any doubt who it is?) launches an attack against the United States, with a flight of… P-80 Shooting Stars. Excuse me? And before long we get to see an impressive collection of American airpower from the Fifties (and even a few […]

Planet of Dinosaurs (1977)

Back in 1977, a group of young special effects artists got together to make a science fiction film, Planet of Dinosaurs. Now this is one of those films you can’t watch with any illusions:  they didn’t have much cash, their no-name cast isn’t particularly good, the script is just as bad, and there’s a lot of […]

The Black Scorpion (1957)

No one has ever made a creature feature quite like the original King Kong. Well, except perhaps the silent version of The Lost World. Legendary stop-motion animator, Willis O’Brien, used a method for Kong that has never been used in any film since.  And there is a reason for that. He created miniature sets for […]

Space Mutiny (1988)

This one was made by A.I.P. Now, I know what you’re thinking: American Independent Pictures, the same company that churned out hundreds of low budget films by Roger Corman, Bert I. Gordon, Edward L. Cahn, Larry Buchanan and others like them.  And you would be wrong. Instead, we are talking about Action Independent Pictures, which made a lot […]
