Son of Frankenstein (1939)

Boris Karloff returned to play the monster in the third film in the series, even though director James Whale (of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein) had moved on to other things. Son of Frankenstein (1939) is actually very entertaining and visually striking, and retains much of the humor from the first two films. Basil Rathbone stars as the titular son, who moves his family to his father's old castle, and finds the body of the old monster. He, of course, tries to resurrect it to restore honor to the family name. Fans of Mel Brooks will notice many elements in this film inspiring Young Frankenstein (1974). Bela Lugosi also turns up here (in his fifth of eight films with Karloff), giving a very fine supporting performance as Ygor, the assistant with the twisted, broken neck. Ward Bond appears in a small, uncredited role. Frank Skinner provided the terrific score. read more...

Burn Witch Burn (1962)

Based on Fritz Leiber's 1943 beloved-by-horror-fans novel Conjure Wife, Sidney Hayers' Burn Witch Burn is a surprisingly well-made, black-and-white chiller despite its "B" movie origins. Two Twilight Zone writers, Richard Matheson and Charles Beaumont, adapted the screenplay, telling the story of Norman Taylor (Peter Wyngarde), a college professor who teaches his students that the supernatural does not exist. He's very successful, everyone adores him, and he's up for a promotion. At home, he discovers that his wife Tansy (Janet Blair) has hidden weird little talismans all over the house, spiders, shells, dolls, etc. He makes her burn everything, but then his luck takes a serious turn for the worse. Tansy also disappears, sending Norman on a frantic chase. The rich cinematography starts off on a rather normal, domestic note, but lets weird little things creep in, especially stone birds, leering from odd angles. (A nice touch has Norman backing into his classroom blackboard and accidentally erasing a crucial word from a sentence written there.) The sound design is also creepily effective. The wonderful Kathleen Byron (Black Narcissus) plays another teacher with secrets of her own. Voice actor Paul Frees provides a spoken introduction protecting the audience from the witchcraft to follow. Kino Lorber released it on Blu-ray in 2015. There's a 25-minute, sit-down interview with Wyngarde, a trailer, and a slow-burning commentary track with the late, great Matheson, who is one of my all-time favorite writers. read more...

The Quatermass Xperiment (1955)

What looks like a black-and-white sci-fi cheapie actually turns out to be quite a good, moody, spooky film. Hammer Studios' The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) was based on a BBC television serial, but featured an American star, Brian Donlevy (from Preston Sturges films) to help sell the movie abroad. read more...

Cursed (2005)

The post-modern werewolf film appeared as early as Joe Dante's The Howling and John Landis's An American Werewolf in London (both 1981) and as recently as John Fawcett's Ginger Snaps (2001). And despite a screenplay by Kevin Williamson, who wrote the ultimate post-modern horror film, Scream, Wes Craven's Cursed doesn't add anything new to the pot. read more...

Invaders from Mars (1986)

Invaders from Mars was the second of three films that Tobe Hooper made for Cannon Films, a.k.a. Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, those notorious cheapsters that cranked out dozens of bad "B" movies. But I find that Hooper's work for them was among the most vibrant and colorful of his career. This one was a remake of a 1950s film, an attempt to capture the paranoia that was swirling in the air around a Communist invasion. (Perhaps the fact that it was a remake was the cause of the film's original chilly reception.) read more...
