Dementia (Daughter of Horror)

Posted 2nd May 2009 at 10:07 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

Dementia (Daughter of Horror)





A real oddity, Dementia (also known by it's alternate title, Daughter Of Horror), started life as a 10 minute short before Director John Parker expanded this essentially silent movie into a 60-minute feature.

The movies only real dialogue comes from a narrator, a trick used in a lot of sleazy sex pictures in the 60s such as the Olga series of S&M movies. He welcomes us in the horrific depths of a fractured...

Rocketship XM

Posted 26th April 2009 at 02:40 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Rocketship XM





The Future Is Coming!


A cheap B&W movie rushed into to production to beat the groundbreaking "Destination Moon" to the cinema screens in the early 50s, Rocketship XM sees a group of plucky astronauts veer off their chosen route to the moon, landing instead on mars in a mind numbing piece of unscientific anti-logic that sets up the rest of this odd slice of B-movie madness.

On arrival the crew discover...

I Bury The Living





Robert Kraft is starting a new job as the chairman of a committee overseeing the running of a massive cemetery, a graveyard so huge that a map is kept in the office, displaying every grave. Pins are used, black for filled graves and white for sold plots that have yet to be occupied by the deceased.

When Robert makes an error and places a pair of black pins on the wrong grave site causing the young couple who paid for...

Ghosts and Giant Leeches...

Attack of the Giant Leeches





From The Murky Underground Caverns...


When a drunken trapper reports that giant monsters are lurking in the local swamp, the townsfolk don't believe his inebriated ramblings until people start disappearing...

Welcome to 50s monster movie heaven in this basically awful but entertaining piece of tinpot cheapness.

The trapper turns up later, extremely dead and sporting great...

Teenagers From Outer Space

Teenagers From Out Space





Ultra low budget 50s drive-in nonsense for fans of kitzch camp and Sci Fi aficionados. It's Martian invasion time as the pesky aliens invade Earth in order to use our planet as a breeding ground for their food creatures (or men in rubber suits...you decide!) The Gargons!!!

One Martian becomes attached to an Earth woman, Betty (Are all women in 50s America called Betty?) and must now fight his own race to save...

Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Posted 26th April 2009 at 09:18 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1958





The Nightmare That Threatens The World!


Don Siegal's classic slice of Cold War paranoia continues to send chills down the spine after over 50 years and several remakes.

Body Snatchers is set in the world of perfect 1950s small town Americana, A Norman Rockwell Idyll of conservative values and well behaved, perfectly manicured wives, where, seemingly from nowhere, mysterious vegetable...

Roger Corman Trash-o-rama

Posted 24th April 2009 at 08:09 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

The Wasp Woman





The Woman's Driving Passion is to be... Queen of Beauty


She has the head and hands of a wasp but the body of a beautiful woman she is...Wasp Women.

Another production line cheapy from Roger Corman before he hit critical pay-dirt with his series of Edgar Allen Poe films, this isn't high art but for tacky movie aficionados it'll hit all the right buttons.

The head of a successful cosmetics...

Corridors of Blood

Posted 24th April 2009 at 02:37 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Corridors of blood





Karloff returned to classy British horror in the late 50s after 25 years with the grisly Victorian gothic of 'Corridors of Blood'.

Karloff plays a surgeon troubled by the agony caused by his craft as effective anaesthesia has yet to be developed. His experiments into finding a solution bare fruit when he makes laughing gas but his demonstration in front of his peers goes wrong when a patient wakes up half way through...
