I seem to remember watching this on TV with my mum one evening in the early 80s. I remember thinking how much like a soap opera it was. It was like Dracula was being played by Rick Springfield. My intellect was telling me he was supposed be acting sexy... but in a gay flamboyant way that only women could understand. I remember not liking it.

BOGGY CREEK 2 THE LEGEND CONTINUES 1984

The search for bigfoot continues as a professor and 3 of his students go to Arkansas to check out some sightings. Outstanding performance by the guy in the gorilla suit. The rest was laughable but kept me happy.

WESTWORLD (1973). Really liked this back when I was 12, but find it hard going these days, although the idea is great. Find the acting flat (Richard Benjamen is damn annoying in here), but Yul Brynner >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>SPOILIER>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >> is quite effective as the TERMINATOR-esque gunslinger. **1/2

THE STUFF (1985). Amusing Larry Cohen flick that doesn't quite make it, but worth checking out once.. **1/2

BLEEDER AKA BLODAREN 1983



An all girl rock band gets stranded while on their way to their next gig. Searching through some abandoned homes for a phone, they start disappearing one by one. The score was astonishingly close to Halloween's. That was probably the only good thing.

I'll second that...one of my favorite directors. Really nice when wife and I met him at HORRORFIND Spring 2008...really just an old Hippie, talking about "...the Fuzz, Man!"-indeed, ALL the Romero people we've encountered at Conventions were really cool, although Savini was kind of a dick the first time we met him.

KNIGHTRIDERS (1981). After the big Box office of DAWN OF THE DEAD, George made this unusual Rennaisance Faire film that includes a family camp and Motorcycle jousting. He intended this to be more of his personal views and heard he was quite crushed when it flopped, although CREPSHOW brought back large returns and this found more of an audience via cable/rentals.
While I quite like this, it's really too long and quite pretentious in spots, but the stunt work is great and neat seeing many familiar names in the cast/crew. ****

I've heard from more than one person that Savini is an asshole.

I've seen Savini at several cons and I've seen him be both wonderful AND shitty depending on the con and the particular fans. Once he wouldn't even look up to sign autographs, but then a month later at a smaller event he was very engaged with the crowd.
Good and bad days I guess. I did have a great conversation with him about Maniac many years ago, and he seemed genuinely excited by my love for his work in that one.
I will say this much for sure, if you are a blonde, busty woman, you will have his undivided attention. I am not blonde or busty. Nor am I a woman ( Ya hear that, Sculpterino! 😂), so I suppose the convo I had with him will suffice.

I watched Monster Dog recently. I'd heard about it before, but didn't think of it as anything more than a bad horror movie. However I found that I'm an Cooper fan so I took another look at it. Still bad. But it was enjoyable.
