He had but one body - yet lived with two souls!


Curse of the Werewolf
1961 | Color | 93 Minutes | 1.85:1 | UR | Horror | Mono | Hammer Studios

Director: Terence Fisher

Writers: Anthony Hinds

Stars: 
Clifford Evans
Oliver Reed
Yvonne Romain 

In Spain, Leon is born on Christmas day to a mute servant girl who was raped by a beggar. His mother dies giving birth and he is looked after by Don Alfredo. As a child, Leon becomes a werewolf after having been taken hunting. As a young man, he works in a wine cellar and falls in love with the owner's daughter Cristina. One full moon, he again turns into a werewolf and terrifies the town.

I have always liked this take on the Werewolf and its religious undertones. In fact, the movie's Spanish setting came from a backlot that was built for a Spanish Inquisition film. This film was not produced because the Catholic League of Decency threatened to ban it. For many this was also one of the best looking Werewolves even  though makeup artist Roy Ashton based his makeup for this film on Jack P. Pierce's makeup for The Wolf Man. The way this was filmed was always so cool to me the bold color's gorgeous woman and the whole Christmas Curse plot!

So make sure you tune in tonight “Curse of the Werewolf” will run at 10 pm eastern/pacific, 9 central, or check local listings for your area.

It's one year later after the events of Halloween 4. Michael survives the shootings and on October 31st he returns with a vengeance. Lurking and stalking, Jamie, Rachel, and Rachel's friends, Michael forms a plan to lure Jamie out of the children's hospital where events lead up to the confrontation at the Myers house. Halloween 5 is a dark, thrill ride that will scare the heck out of you!



Ok, here we go again, another Halloween movie with that bad subplot. But before I bitch about the demon aspect lets talk about the good, well what there was anyway.

I dont get it.

Ok, I have stripped my blog down to darn near barebones and still can not figure out why I get an error when I try to post to Twitter and Facebook. I'm so frustrated right now I have run this trough the mill trying to find any Malware on my site and I always come up clean. So hang tight with me as I try to figure this crap out.
