Retro Review: Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Rosemary’s Baby is an interesting film. It purports to be horror, and in the most general sense I suppose it is; but it’s mostly a rambling, sometimes awkwardly funny study in late 1960s rich whitefolk nonsense. 772 more words



I’ve a bevy of horror today to cap off the season with a marathon.

I’ve arranged them into thematic pairs to help you in narrowing down your viewing pleasure should you not have twenty plus hours to watch them all…. 958 more words

Halloweek: Die! Die! My Darling! (1965) - original title "Fanatic"

This week, Comet Over Hollywood is celebrating Halloween with slightly more offbeat horror films.  

Starting in the 1960s with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” (1962), famous actresses of the 1930s and 1940s who were now “past their prime” were cast in semi-campy horror roles. 990 more words


11 Days Until Halloween, 2014: Sleepwalker (1984) and Toby Dammit (1968)

14 Days 'til Halloween, 2014: La Strega In Amore aka The Witch (1966) and Savage Weekend (1979)

Today is all about eroticism…of the darker kind.

THE WITCH is a strange mix of Italian Gothic horror, early Antonioni, and a hyper-sexualized WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF (or perhaps THE COMFORT OF STRANGERS). 565 more words
