Yeah I know it's Cronenberg, wasn't that impressed with this.


I like how wild this one is. It's something about the I guess high tech setting of the time of apartment living. The environment is just different compared to US horror movies. I have to pick it up one day. They were supposed to remake it and I was looking forward to it.

BLOOD HARVEST 1987

Tiny Tim plays "Mervo the Clown" in this slasher that has a young girl coming home from college to find her parents have gone missing.
I thought Tiny Tim was awesome but the rest of the movie was just awkward.

Tiny Tim delivering falsetto lines wasn't awkward?

One would think so, lol. It actually served his character well. It was really just when he sung that he sounded like that.

Aw!!! What a ripoff! I would have wanted Tiny to talk falsetto in films too! That would be hilarious. I assume this was a serious drama? Like people can't talk in falsetto and be taken seriously. It's a sad day, Bloof, a sad world...

PROPHECY 1979

While studying the environment to settle a dispute between an Indian settlement and a paper mill, a doctor makes a surprising discovery.

Have always loved this film though it may seem a bit hokey by today's standards.

CHRISTMAS EVIL (1980). Sort of a precursor to SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT with a scene almost redone in ET. Not bad in its little way and an early turn by Jeffrey DeMunn (THE BLOB and THE WALKING DEAD). Scariest thing in this is Jeff's hair style! **1/2

THE TEACHER (1974). Silly Crown Studio nonsense of a Teacher (Beautiful Angel Tompkins) seducing her Graduated Student/Neighbor (Jay North who played Dennis The Menace on TV!) while both are being stalked by a psycho. Dumb, but worth checking out. While watching this, I discovered many of the situations, dialogue and names were used verbatim ten years later in THEY'RE PLAYING WITH FIRE (1984) with ultra bodacious Sybil Danning playing a Diane. **1/2

Black Christmas

What the FUCK was that ending? Go back and try again movie.

You know it's bad when I look forward to watching the remake. Which is sad because everything else up until the ending (which I felt was left unfinished) was marvelous! The killer was intriguing as well as scary, the victims you actually liked and felt for, and the suspense was down right Hitchcockian!
