Herschell Gordon Lewis – The Godfather of Gore – 2010

Lately, I have been watching quite a few documentaries. Herschell Gordon Lewis – The Godfather of Gore is just one of the most recent ones. As a horror addict or at least very interested in movie history, the name Herschell Gorgon Lewis is not a new one for me. I’m fully aware of why he was and some of the most famous movies he did. Color me Blood Red, Blood Feast, The Gruesome Twosome, The...

Scott Joplin – 1977 – King of Ragtime!

I fell in love with Scott Joplin’s music when I first saw The Sting! You know the movie starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford along with loads of other actors that you certainly know by face, but necessarily their name. That’s how it is for me anyway. Wait a minute. Robert Shaw does a brilliant part as well! The Sting featured Scott Joplin’s music just as much as any actor in it, at least in...

Sarah of Horror Festival 2022

Background I’ve known Sarah Giercksky aka Sarah of Horror for a few years now. I first came in contact with her when her movie Sargad was released in 2017. I reviewed it via an online screener and later felt I had to have an original DVD of the film. Maybe I should say that I’ve known of Sarah of Horror for these years. It’s not like we hang out or have ever met. We live...

Land of Doom 0

Land of Doom – 1986 – Post Apocalypse

First of all, Land of Doom is a very dated film, let’s get that out of the way. It was released in 1986 and it’s pretty obvious. The settings, the way the motorcycles are “hotted” and the way the gangs dress certainly gives that away. Plus, it’s not a particularly good movie if you look at it objectively if there’s even such a thing as objectivity when it comes to movie watching. I think we...

Arabian Adventure 0

Arabian Adventure – 1979 – Christopher Lee

If you have followed me for a while you know that I love Fantasy and adventure movies. Arabian Adventure is such a movie and it’s easy to compare it to a Sinbad Movie or the thief of Bagdad or äny of those classics. The premise is about the same. We have this hero, who is almost too down to earth despite being a prince. Someone who almost has an absurd sense of right and wrong...

The Hyperions 0

The Hyperions – 2022 – Very different superheroes

  The Hyperions is more or less what it claims to be, a funny superhero story where the actual heroes are very different. There is also a more serious side of the story but more on that later. The Superheroes in The Hyperions are not really born with any powers. It’s more like they were chosen by this brilliant scientist – Professor Ruckus Mandulbaum (Cary Elwes). He has invented a device that can give humans...
