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 “The Cult of the Cobra” (1955)

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 Devil Doll” (1936)

They arrive at Marcel’s home, where his wife Malita (Rafaela Ottiano) has been carrying on his experiments in shrinking living beings, namelyContinue reading “Review of “The Devil Doll” (1936)”

She tells herContinue reading “Review of “Night Monster” (1942)”

Review of “Creature with the Atom Brain” (1955)
