Review: HANDS OF THE RIPPER (1971)

For some, the psychological webbing of HANDS OF THE RIPPER may seem as rudimentary as cod Freud.

Review: COUNTESS DRACULA (1971)

Pride goeth before destruction in COUNTESS DRACULA, the 1971 horror picture from Hammer Film Productions. Directed by Peter Sasdy from a screenplay by Jeremy Paul, this movie is based on the story of Elizabeth Báthory and takes sure delight in the remarkable mythology surrounding the Hungarian noble/serial killer. 278 more words
