Review of “The Thing with Two Heads” (1972)

This was our Saturday pizza and bad movie offering. Garlic pizza. Yum. But, aside from that, I remembered watching this flick on something called broadcast television back in the day. It’s one of those movies that’s so bad it’s almost good. Plot:Brilliant surgeon and icky racist Maxwell Kirshner (Ray Milland) is dying but wants hisContinue reading “Review of “The Thing with Two Heads” (1972)”

Review of “Blacula” (1972)

I’d long heard of our Saturday pizza and bad movie feature but had never seen it. We watched it with Svengoolie, who issued several warnings for explicit scenes and “stereotypes.” The violence isn’t the-top for a horror film, but it’s definitely not one for the kiddies. Plot: In 1780, lightning streaks across the sky, andContinue reading “Review of “Blacula” (1972)”

Review of “Destroy All Monsters” (1968)

This is our pizza and bad movie offering for this week, one that squeezes just about every Japanese monster into a single flick. Plot: By 1999, the United Nations Scientific Committee (UNSC) has established an exploratory base on the moon. Spacecraft come and go between earth and the moon daily. Why, the rocket ship MoonlightContinue reading “Review of “Destroy All Monsters” (1968)”

Review of “The Old Dark House” (1932)

This is our latest Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering. Last week, Svengoolie was unavailable. The cable channel has not explained. Oh, well. The dearly beloved found the film scheduled for then, Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy, through the library. It should arrive shortly. This week’s film is a bit less cheery. Plot:Continue reading “Review of “The Old Dark House” (1932)”

Review of “Konga” (1961)

This is our latest Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering, a King Kong exploitation flick. Kong isn’t the only thing it exploits. A mad-scientist serious/silliness imbues the film, making it hard not to smile at inappropriate times. Plot:A single-engine plane crashes somewhere in Uganda. It’s feared both the pilot and the eminent biologist, Dr.Continue reading “Review of “Konga” (1961)”

Review of “Island of Lost Souls” (1932)

This is our Saturday pizza and bad movie offering, a flick that got banned, censored, and clipped back in the day. While there’s no sex or nudity, there is some violence. Mostly, it’s heavy and depicts cruelty. It’s not one for the kiddies. We watched it with Svengoolie. Plot: While traveling to meet his fiancée,Continue reading “Review of “Island of Lost Souls” (1932)”

Review of “War of the Gargantuas” (1966/1970)

This is our latest Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering. I have to confess, after so many movies that I’ve found unpleasant recently, this is the kind of bad movie worth buying pizza for. Silly plot, people running and screaming through the Japanese countryside and then through Tokyo, unconvincing special effects—it was so muchContinue reading “Review of “War of the Gargantuas” (1966/1970)”

Review of “Duel” (1971)

This is our latest Saturday pizza and bad movie offering, Duel, a TV movie adapted from a 1971 Richard Matheson short story of the same name. The extended theatrical release is what’s generally available now. Duel was Steven Spielberg’s feature directing debut. We watched it with Svengoolie. Plot: David Mann (Dennis Weaver) drives his redContinue reading “Review of “Duel” (1971)”

Review of “Kiss of the Vampire” (1963)

This is our latest Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering, a vampire flick with a lovely old castle and a creepy old owner with creepy kids who take flight when the sun gets too bright. Of course, the creepy old dude throws a masquerade party. We watched it with Svengoolie. Plot: This opens withContinue reading “Review of “Kiss of the Vampire” (1963)”

Review of “The Raven” (1963)

This is the latest offering of our Saturday night pizza and bad movies, an odd little flick that didn’t take itself seriously. We watched it with Svengoolie. Plot: It’s 1506. Magician Dr. Erasmus Craven (Vincent Price) has been mourning his wife, Lenore (Hazel Court), for two years. He keeps a photograph of her (A photographContinue reading “Review of “The Raven” (1963)”
