Review of “Curse of the Undead” (1959)

This is this week’s pizza and bad movie, an unusual mixture of western and horror. Basil and garlic pizza didn’t seem to faze the bad guy who did wear the required black. Plot:In an unspecified area of the former Spanish territory of the Old West, perhaps around 1880, several young girls have come down withContinue reading “Review of “Curse of the Undead” (1959)”

Review of “How to Make a Monster” (1958)

This was this week’s Saturday pizza and bad movie offering. We watched this with Svengoolie and polished off the good chardonnay. Plot:Pete Dumond (Robert H. Harris) and his assistant Rivero (Paul Brinegar) have been creating monster make-up for the movies for twenty-five years. He has just finished an excellent (…it’s in the eye of theContinue reading “Review of “How to Make a Monster” (1958)”

Review of “The Cult of the Cobra” (1955)

This was this week’s Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering. We had a nice chardonnay. The moral of the story: don’t be a jerk, even when you think the other guy’s religion looks weird. Plot: In 1945, six U.S. airmen are about to return home from their deployment someplace in “Asia:” Sgt. Paul AbleContinue reading “Review of “The Cult of the Cobra” (1955)”

Review of “The Frozen Ghost” (1945)

This is this week’s Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering. This pizza and wine were good, and the movie a bit weird. We watched it with Svengoolie Plot:Gregor the Great (Lon Chaney Jr.) performs as a mentalist, that is—at least in this context—one who is able to put another person into a trance. HeContinue reading “Review of “The Frozen Ghost” (1945)”

Review of “King Kong Escapes” (1967)

This was this week’s Saturday night pizza and bad movie offering. This pizza was good, and we had a nice cab. The flick was more Saturday afternoon fare. We watched it with Svengoolie. Plot:Mad scientist/Bond villain Dr. Who (not that one) (Hideyo Amamoto), who sometimes spells his name Dr. Hu or Dr. Wu, has createdContinue reading “Review of “King Kong Escapes” (1967)”

Review of “The Crawling Eye” (1958)

This is this week’s Saturday pizza and bad movie offering. This is our second time watching the movie with Svengoolie. I fell asleep the first time. I must have been really tired. Alas! That bottle of white zinfandel from 1993 outlived its usefulness. Maybe if we wait a hundred years, we could have used itContinue reading “Review of “The Crawling Eye” (1958)”

Review of “The Incredible Shrinking Man” (1957)

This is this week’s Saturday pizza and bad movie selection. Although the premise was iffy, the movie moves beyond that. The pizza was good, and the wine helped. We watched it with Svengoolie. Plot: Scott Carey (Grant Williams) and his wife of six years, Louise (Randy Stuart), are vacationing on a boat. He tries toContinue reading “Review of “The Incredible Shrinking Man” (1957)”

Review of “The Undead” (1957)

This is this week’s Saturday pizza and bad movie night offering. The pizza was good. We watched it with Svengoolie. Plot: We first see Satan (Richard Devon), a trident between him and the camera, dressed like… Robin Hood. His warning to the audience ends with the trademark evil laugh. The next scene is that ofContinue reading “Review of “The Undead” (1957)”

Review of “Shadow of the Cat” (1961)

This is last week’s Saturday pizza and bad movie offering. It was such a quirky view I had to write about it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a free watchable version of it. Even finding a trailer for it was an exercise. Should you come across it, though, this flick is worth the watch, with orContinue reading “Review of “Shadow of the Cat” (1961)”

Review of “The Beast Must Die” (1974)

This is this week’s Saturday night pizza and bad movie installment. Had some yummy prosecco I bought for our anniversary. Might have to get some more before the next anniversary.

Plot:The movie opens with a lone black man (Calvin Lockhart) running through the woods, pursued by several white men deckedContinue reading “Review of “The Beast Must Die” (1974)”
