Amigos! We're rounding the fourth week of October, so my horror movie marathon is almost dead… BUT NOT YET! As a refresher, here's how I rate these fright-filled films:
A Must See = ***
Bloody Fun = **
Only for Horror Fans = *
You ready? Then let's stuff this creepy clown doll.
PIECES - An exemplar of shlock cinema. This trash cinema treasure is only for hardcore fans. If you count yourself among that perverse horde, this will chainsaw a smile across your face. *
THE BLACK CAT - Before Freddy vs. Jason, there was Lugosi vs. Karloff. Though a flop at the time, the heat between these two titans of horror is palpable. And their final confrontation, thought played in silhouette, managed to make me squirm. *
THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN - This horny little flick, the first great movie sequel, delivers a deluge of memorable moments, easily making it one of the best Universal horror films from the 30s. ***
WE ARE STILL HERE - An imperfect haunted house flick but you'll want to stay until the end. It gets exponentially crazier with each passing minute. Also, it stars underground horror icon Larry Fessenden. *
Without a doubt, my pick of the week is The Bride of Frankenstein. A masterpiece on so many levels.
