Out of a time-rotted tomb crawls an unspeakable horror!

I Bury The Living
1958 | B&W | 76 Minutes | 1.85:1 | NR | Film-Noir | United Artist

Source: DVD

Director: Albert Band

Writer: Louis Garfinkle

Stars:
Richard Boone
Theodore Bikel
Peggy Maurer



Through a series of macabre "coincidences," the newly-elected director of a cemetery (Richard Boone) begins to believe that he can cause the deaths of living owners of burial plots by merely changing the push-pin color from white (living) to black (dead) on a large wall map of the cemetery that notes those plots.



So how many movies will you watch in a lifetime that the monster is a push pin and a cemetery map? My guess would have to be only one! And it is so worth your time to track it down. The movie is pretty easy to find it fell into Public Doman and I have it on a few of those cheap DVD sets with 15 movies on them. The good news for my copy, it looked great they did not try to squeeze it done to pixeled goo.

Summer Block Buster that never happened.


What a shame that this will never see the light of day thanks to the poor advertisement of the first one.

How about this weeks description coming from the man himself take it away cha....sorry Sven.

Tonight on Me-TV, it’s the movie that made Sven history back in the 80s when I presented it in 3-D- “Revenge of the Creature”!
The Gill Man resurfaces,gets captured and brought to America- specifically, a Florida Marineland-like theme park- where they try to communicate with him (with an electric probe?!)Needless to say, no theme park can hold him- and Florida becomes a disaster area when the Creature roams free!

You can catch “Revenge of the Creature” (only in 2-D this time)tonight on Me-TV throughout the country-10 pm eastern, 9 pm central, etc..

Wait what?!?



What rock was I under? Not 100% behind this but I did laugh out loud at a few spots. We will see.

Beach Party Blogathon!


So I decided to jump feet first into the water's of the Beach Party Blogathon. The blog hop starts June 8 through June 12. The movie I have picked to talk about so far is Cabin Fever: Patient Zero.


A group of friends think they're going to the perfect spot for a bachelor party; a secluded private island. They quickly learn the island is not as private as they thought. The island is home to a lab thought to be empty, but in actuality a deadly, extremely fast acting, flesh eating virus has just escaped containment. Now everyone on the island has to fight not only to survive the outbreak, but also to survive each other.

If you would like to join in on the fun swim on over to Beach Party Blogathon!

You'll Pay To Get In... And Pray To Get Out!

Drive-In Massacre
1977 | Color | 74 Min. | 1.33.1 | R | Horror | Mono | S.A.M. Productions

Director: Stu Segall

Verkina Flowers

Two police detectives try to catch a serial killer who is stalking a rural California drive-in theater, randomly killing people with a sword.






Boy did I think I was in trouble seconds after popping this bad boy into the DVD player. Half the screen was dark and the other half was fading in and out. Thankfully it corrects itself shortly thereafter but the film still looks like a direct port from a 16mm reel to reel. In a way, the grim and grit fit into the movies atmosphere but still not easy to watch. In fact, just a little color correction would have helped tremendously. So why is this a cult classic?

The Ultimate Alien Weapon Is Back

Back in 1986 Charles Band was set to produce the sequel called Laserblast 2. The movie was even planned for a theatrical release as production was to start in August of that year. However, Bands production company Wizard Entertainment fell into financial difficulties shortly after the production of Laserblast 2 and the project ended up being scrapped. Elements of the abandoned sequel were later used in the 1988 Empire entertainment film Deadly Weapon. Weapon, like Laserblast, was about a bullied teenager who finds a powerful weapon and uses it to seek revenge.

Well maybe someday this will see the light of day until then I will drool over these.
