Z-Grade horror(?) comedy (?) from Roger Corman.
This is real test of endurance to last the 1hr 15mins run time.
Thought I would watch it again as I had not seen it in a long time.
Laughable Cookie Monster type creature.
No redeeming features apart from Betsy Jones-Moreland.
Boring.
The monster is the best part

Twins of Evil(1971).

Superb last film in the Hammer Karnstein trilogy starring Peter Cushing as Gustav Weil the puritanical witchfinder whose life gets complicated when his two orphaned nieces Frieda and Maria come to stay. Frieda is the outgoing one and falls under the spell of the depraved aristocrat Count Karnstein who is also a vampire.

Directed by John Hough this is an excellent combination of Hammer's old style films and the more erotic and bloody direction that the later films took.

Peter Cushing gives one of his most sadistic performances and is superb as the ruthless witchfinder. And the Collinson twins are excellent as well as the twins in their low cut dresses, in and out of them.

Highly recommended, and with a great rousing soundtrack too 8.5 out of 10.

A strange and powerful cloud is heading to earth destroying everything in its wake, admiral Kirk takes command of the refitted enterprise to stopped it. This is a strange film sometimes I watch it and it lives up to its Nick name of the slow motion picture of others times i enjoy it like i did yesterday , yep it could do with more action and better uniforms but it has has really nice effects with the cloud. 7/10

Next up Robocop.

Nae mutuals either . All it missed was the sassy darkie and a decent tune. Recommended!!

Castle of Fu Manchu
Fu Manchu's next plot is to freeze the world's oceans with crystals formed from opium. He destroys a cruise ship with an iceberg to show he's serious. Now Nayland has to stop him.
Not the best film I've seen not the worst. There was one scene that could've been tense but it fails. It would have been fascinating if the ship at the beginning was the titanic, but you can't have everything you want in a movie.

The Bloodstained Shadow.

A young schoolgirl is viscously murdered and the killer is never caught.
Moving forward several years, professor Stefano goes to visit his brother Paulo a priest who lives on an island near Venice, and gets caught up in a series of brutal murders.
and also befriends Sandra(Stefania Cassini from Suspiria) who is an artist that he previously met earlier on the train.

This i found was a very entertaining giallo from 88Films. It has lots of suspense and twists and turns with various sub plots involving psychics and a pedo chap. bags of atmos in the misty Venetian alley ways and a great Goblin like score. Yes, it is a bit slow in parts and quite long in it's running time. but the murders when they come are quite nasty and well done, especially the
old ladys head being pushed into the fire.

so i award 80.7 out of 100 for this enjoyable giallo.

Grip of the Strangler (1958)

Boris Karloff plays a novelist investigating a twenty year old case of dance hall girl murders attributed to the now hanged Haymarket Strangler. With a bit of quite literal digging (Karloff digs up the body from it's grave) Karloff comes to the conclusion that the man hanged was innocent and that he himself is the notorious strangler.

Whilst the plot twist to this low budget British horror film hinges on the ludicrous, Karloff himself is excellent, effectively twisting his features into the Haymarket Strangler without the use of or need of prosthetics and at the age of 71, resurrected a career which had fallen into decline.

Directed by Robert Day, Grip of the Strangler is a moody, haunting affair depicting a shadowy, foggy London perfect for a knife wielding maniac, and a typically British piece of Gothic black and white cinema.

Fitzcarraldo 1982.

Brian Fitzgerald chases a dream of building a opera house in the Amazonian Jungle.

Another film collabaration from Klaus Kinski and Werner Herzog, based on the true story of Carlos Fermin who was known as the Rubber Baron in the late 19th centuary who died at the age of 30.

With Kinski being able to take direction very well and get into character or just be very unpredictable with confinded areas helped this film move well. Filmed in the Amazon Jungle, the film is shot with amazing scenery and a great soundtrack. Behind the scenes there was problems, Kinski having temper tantrums that an extra offered to murder him, a plane crash and Herzog driving a boat during rapids that three people were hurt. This is a decent movie to see. 8 out of 10.
