The Woods (2006)

I had wondered what happened to Lucky McKee after he broke onto the horror scene with his outstanding film May (2002). For some reason I hadn't seen anything of his in all that time until last year's not-so-good All Cheerleaders Die, a remake of a video McKee made just out of film school. Apparently something called The Woman was making people squirm a few years ago, but I missed it. Now here comes The Woods, a movie from 2006 — I'm not sure it ever had a theatrical release — getting a Blu-ray release in 2015. Fans didn't seem to like it much, but I found it wonderfully atmospheric, with several appealing performances, even if the plot doesn't always make sense. 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 Sender (1982)

A forgotten psychological horror film, The Sender is better than it looks, especially given that its director, Roger Christian, went on to make the notorious Battlefield Earth. Kathryn Harrold stars as a pretty, kind nurse who becomes interested in a "Joe Doe" patient (Zeljko Ivanek), a man with no memory who tried to kill himself by filling his pockets with rocks and walking into a lake in a public park. She observes him breaking into her house and stealing a necklace, but it turns out the whole thing was an illusion; it eventually becomes apparent that John Doe's nightmares tend to manifest themselves in the real world. Oh, and the ghost of his mother keeps turning up, too. The movie is treated seriously, with decent special effects and acting, and it generates a fascinatingly eerie atmosphere. Paul Freeman (Belloq from Raiders of the Lost Ark) co-stars. Before becoming infamous, director Christian had been an art director and set decorator on films like the original Star Wars and Alien. Originally a Paramount release, The Sender was released on a fine-looking Blu-ray by Olive Films, with no extras. 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...

X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes (1963)

Roger Corman took a break from his Poe series and tackled another ambitious science fiction project, X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes (1963). For the lead role of the scientist who experiments on himself, Corman landed an actual Oscar-winner, Ray Milland, who had starred in Billy Wilder's The Lost Weekend almost 20 years earlier. Just like the title says, Milland develops a special X-ray serum that allows him to see inside the chest of a patient during an operation. But he's soon branded a freak and an outcast and accused of murder. He takes a job on the carnival circuit, "reading" things in people's pockets. Unlike the Poe pictures, Corman did not photograph X in 'scope widescreen and uses colors more sparingly, but he gained plenty of mileage through his cost-saving "X-Ray" special effects. Sadly, when Milland discovers he can see through women's clothes, the film only shows his victims from the knees down or the necks up. Even so, it's a rather inventive little "B" movie, with ambitious, sci-fi appeal. read more...
