Upcoming stuff and junk


Later today I am hoping to do a Saturday Morning Flashback (a few days early). Then Friday will be a Poster Posting followed by Dr. Smith dropping by a day early on Saturday to share an insult. Then next week  from Sunday through Friday it will be Giant Monsters week with reviews of….

Attack of the giant leeches-Yvette Vickers, a swamp and some garbage bag monsters.

War of the colossal beast-A Bert I. Gordon cheapie about a big dude running around growling.

Attack of the monsters-Flying saucers, aliens and most importantly Gamera.

Mysterious island- Ray Harryhausen throws in lots of giant critters in this adaption of Jules Verne’s novel.

Plus Zardoz will finally return and be by with a giant monster themed funny and maybe there will also  be something about the appeal of giant monsters in the movies. Next week will be chocked full, but the following week will likely be rather thin due to my work schedule.

Happy 4th of July!

Holiday movies?


The big holiday for horror fans is of course Halloween. Probably like me a lot of you squeeze a bunch of horror film all during October. Beyond that what holiday films are there for horror, sci-fi and fasntasy films. The holiday that happens tomorrow even has the above film with the same name. I have never watched this film actually. I don’t know if anyone watches it on the 4th or not. The 80’s had numerous cheapie horror films pop up with themes for Christmas, Valentines, Aprils Fool’s and other holidays. I have certain films that I equate to certain seasons and I may watch those during a season. As far as holidays I don’t have so many films that I try to watch on those certain days except that I do try to watch a Leprechaun film for St. Patty’s day.

****Do you watch any films for certain holidays as a tradition?
