Nosferatu

Posted 11th May 2009 at 04:34 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Nosferatu





Werner Herzog's late 70s sound and colour remake of the classic silent horror Nosferatu.

Starring well known thespian lunatic Klaus Kinski as the hideous vampire and lord of the rats, this is an arty take on vampiric lore that might at first alienate straight ahead horror fans but stick with it...it's a moody atmospheric piece with some vivid imagery. One scene that springs to mind is of a formerly well to do family trying...

Bela Lugosi's Dead Pt 1

Posted 24th April 2009 at 10:39 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Bride of the Monster





Bride of the Monster is an essential movie for all students of trash film making, a classic Z-grade shocker from the master of bad movies, Ed Wood.

Bela Lugosi stars in this poverty stricken sci-fi effort as a mad doctor (is there any other kind?) who kidnaps twelve men and attempts to use atomic energy to turn them into super-humans. A sassy female journalist gets wind of his scheme, heads up to his lair to investigate...

Blog 50 - Dracula Vs Frankstein

Posted 24th April 2009 at 07:41 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Dracula Vs Frankenstein





Al Adamson should win a posthumous Oscar for services to the trashy drive-in movie! Whether it be cheap Kung Fu knock offs, scummy biker flicks or this ghost-train wreck of a movie, his films may have been terrible, but they were never dull.

Cobbled together from other unfinished projects, Dracula Vs Frankenstein has it all, Mad scientists hiding out in fair ground attractions, deranged hunched back assistants...

Dracula - The Disco Years

Posted 24th April 2009 at 06:23 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Dracula





A late 70s, big budget studio take on the Dracula tale starring a vampire lord whose style is more Discotastic Barry Manilow then broodingly Gothic Bela Lugosi. Frank Langella is the brooding count in this beautifully staged if campy version of Bram Stoker's classic horror tale of blood sucking terror.

When a ship is grounded off the coast of Whitby the only survivor is Count Dracula. He has arrived with a big consignment of...

Hammer Bits Part 1

Posted 22nd April 2009 at 09:27 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

Plague of the Zombies





Although not as well known as the studio's Dracula and Frankenstein movies, Hammer's Plague of the Zombies rates as one of their most satisfying productions, managing to balance the delightful camp that we all ironically enjoy 40 years after the fact with some real chills.

Opening on some stereotypical voodoo rituals*, we move swiftly on to James Forbes, a medical professor who has received a letter from a former...
