Review of “She-Wolf of London” (1946)

This is the latest Saturday night pizza selection. Both the pizza and the wine were enjoyable. As we often do, we watched this with Svengoolie.

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 Curse of the Werewolf” (1961)

A delayed Saturday night pizza and bad movie entry. The pizza was good. The movie was about as cheery as a sharing a bottle of absinthe with a French existentialist. (That is, the place is furnished in the style of the Second Empire, and the bell for the waiter doesn’t work. You just ‘fess upContinue reading “Review of “The Curse of the Werewolf” (1961)”
