Hello to all those faithfully reading and hopefully enjoying this effort to make even the worst horror movie more watcha... aw, screw that - I'm not that good. If a movie makes you cringe because yet another batch of unlikable teens that are pushing 30 are inching toward their deaths, having a party no one does anywhere ever, a paranormal movie is boring you to tears with unending pans of empty rooms, or thanks to CGI technology when people finally bite it, their blood squirts everywhere except on the victim, the ground, the people next to them... you're in good company and this is the right place for you.

Back To Business And No Whiny Stuff



Mario Bava

I kind of got off-topic and whined a bit about a personal situation and that's not what this blog is for, sorry about that. I have next on the agenda so to speak a nifty 1965 movie called Planet Of The Vampires (one of its many names) which is not at all about vampires but still has some elements that are recognizable in quite a few early and modern science fiction television and movies.

Yes, I'm gonna miss my cuddle boy (he breathes and his heart beats, but he's not really there) and when I screw up the courage to let him go to sleep I'm gonna hurt like hell but you're here to read about bad (and not so bad but maybe more misguided) movies and that's what we're gonna do. So one last mention and we're off and running on another set of Bava projects, followed by the query of why does college make kids stupider, or at least more likely to go off to remote places and get themselves killed (but just not quickly enough).

Life is hard. Movies are fun. Let's just do that. Oh and I still have my unlikely duo of sweethearts - a curmudgeonly old dude named Goliath with way too many toes has fallen in love (platonic) with my one year old sweetie of a tiger striped girl named Tikka... all rescues so who knows? Maybe soon another wanting young thing will be meowing at the door looking for a little love...
