Kubrick was undeniably talented, but comes off as extremely anal and exasperating to work with. Still enjoy many of his films-EYES WIDE SHUT notwithstanding.
If You get a chance, two of his early works THE KILLING (1956-Tarantino used much of this for RESERVOIR DOGS) and PATHS OF GLORY (1957-one of the best War films ever made) are well worth seeing. ****
Shining is a patient adult's film, that's for sure.

Clockwork & Jacket caught me right away.

BLOOD AND LACE 1971

This little gem offers up some disturbing entertainment about a young girl placed in a youth home after her mother and her mother's lover are bludgeoned to death. The woman who runs the home has some truly chilling methods of keeping the head count up for financial reasons. Keep an eye out for a Freddy Krueger look-alike even though this movie was made much earlier.

NIGHT SHADOW 1989

Pretty ridiculous story (except there really wasn't much of a story) about a reporter and werewolf attacks in her hometown.

I was thinking of watching this in a couple of days! Pretty sleazy for sure, but not bad at all and never really noticed the FK reference, but now see what You mean!

UP IN SMOKE (1978). While a little Cheech and Chong goes a long way, this is really a genuinely FUNNY film and better than I thought it would be. Some guest spots by the great Strother Martin (SSSSSSSSSSSS, THE BROTHERHOOD OF SATAN, COOL HAND LUKE and THE WILD BUNCH to name a few) and the alluring tragic Rainbeaux Smith (LEMORA, LADY DRACULA, THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN). ***1/2

Enjoyed it the first time I saw and still like to replay it.

Creepy and good horror film in my book.

The Demoniacs (1974) Massive amounts of nudity, silly plot, and a clown. What's not to like?

It would be cool to make a list of Rainbeaux Smith movies and have a marathon. Just looking on Wikipedia, some of her character names are great. "Twinkle Twat" Girl, Naked hippie girl on motorcycle, White prostitute. What a career.

Killer Force [ aka The Diamond Mercenaries ] (1976) - 8/10

Entertaining heist/action flick. Great ensemble cast.

ALONE IN THE DARK 1982

During a blackout a doctor and his family are terrorized by 4 escapees from the hospital where he works. Great scares by some pretty twisted nuts.

Jack Palance, Donald Pleasence and Martin Balsam make this very interesting.
