Untamed Women (1952)

Aaaand once again we find ourselves watching One Million B.C. Well, at least the dinosaur bits. I honestly have no idea how many films have stolen those classic “lizards with fins” effects from that film.  I’ll admit that some of the sequences are staged with stunning effect, particularly the volcanic eruption and its aftermath, but […]

The Frozen Dead (1966)

For those of you unfamiliar with his work, Bellware is one […]

Galaxy of Terror (1981)

(aka, Mindwarp: An Infinity of Terror Planet of Horrors, Quest) This one was Roger Corman’s first attempt to make an Alien rip off.  it would not be his last. But it is also one of the better ones. A hand-picked crew is sent on a rescue mission by the Master of their planet.  A spaceship […]
