Here's the first set of my HORROR collection. Anyone seen any of these? Banjo?

 ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES, THE 1970- Classic black horror comedy starring Vincent Price as a doctor who exacts revenge on the nine doctors who failed to save his dying wife on the operating table. The nine plagues of the Pharaohs are his elaborate tools for revenge. A sequel followed.

 AENIGMA 1987- CARRIE clone from Italian horror master Lucio Fulci and not very good. Made during his health declining years and recommended for completists only.

ADIOS ZIO TOM 1971-Arguably the most notorious Mondo movie ever. One of the most jaw dropping cinematic experiences ever. The theme is racism throughout the ages. How the directors were able to get the black actors to perform these most humiliating acts of degradation is anyone’s guess. The longer Italian cut (still banned in Italy to this day) tries to appear “respectable”.

AFRICA, ADDIO 1970- Italian cut of the turmoil and brutal conflict in Africa during the 60s. Several years in the making and contains real assassinations, death and animal cruelty. Made headlines when it was said the directors actually paid African military forces to murder innocents for the camera. The case was never proven though. Nonetheless a famous addition to the Mondo genre.

AFRICA-BLOOD & GUTS 1970-US cut minus over an hours worth of footage. Mostly the exploitation elements of the original version. Less violent but no less brutal.

ALONE IN THE DARK 1982-Excellent slasher flick with a dream horror cast. A black out causes an electronically operated insane asylum to shut down and the crazies escape and pursue a new doctor whom several of the inmates believe killed their previous physician. They lay siege to the man’s house and terrorize his family. Jack Palance, Donald Pleasance and Martin Landau star.

AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON 1981-Arguably the best example of a horror-comedy from John Landis(ANIMAL HOUSE).

ANGRY RED PLANET, THE 1960-Low budget sci-fi with horror elements about Mars planning an attack on Earth and scientists rush there in a spaceship to stop them. Once there the film is shot through a red filter and the cast encounter a number of monsters including the infamous giant spider-bat-rat creature.

ANTICHRIST, THE 1974-Italian EXORCIST clone with a good cast. More distasteful than its American counterpart. Released here minus 30 minutes as THE TEMPTER. Mel Ferrer and Arthur Kennedy star. An unsettling Morricone score.

ANTHROPOPHAGUS 1980 (2 disc)-Notorious shocker that was severely trimmed during its initial release. Vacationers on a Greek Isle run afoul of a cannibalistic madman who has killed and eaten the island’s inhabitants. Original US release replaced the Italian score with music lifted from the original TWILIGHT ZONE TV show.

ARMY OF DARKNESS 1992-Third chapter in Raimi’s EVIL DEAD trilogy. Theatrical version was seriously compromised by Universal before release resulting in an uneven film even in its complete form. Still enjoyable however but not the gorefest of the previous two installments.

BAD TASTE 1988- Peter Jackson’s (LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, KING KONG) first film is a hyper gory Monty Python style comedy splatter movie about aliens who kidnap humans to supply an intergalactic fast food chain. Hilariously over the top gore and probably the greatest horror in-joke at the films conclusion.

BARON BLOOD 1972- Another Bava classic about an evil Baron who is resurrected and takes up his old torture and murder tactics in modern times. Joseph Cotton and Elke Sommer star.

BASKET CASE 1982- Classic grind house favorite about a man who carries his Siamese twin brother around with him in a wicker basket seeking revenge on the doctors that separated them. Lots of gore and so-so acting but the many scenes of bloody violence make up for the shortcomings as do the authentic shots of the once notorious 42nd Street in New York City which has been transformed from a gallery of movie houses showing some of the most depraved movies imaginable, porn shops and the dregs of society to a literal strip mall of Disney and Warner Brothers shops geared towards a more family friendly set.

BEAST MUST DIE, THE 1973-Strange Amicus horror-blaxploitation re-telling of TEN LITTLE INDIANS. A big game hunter invites a group of individuals to his island estate whom all share something in common. The hunter plans to hunt the ultimate quarry, a werewolf which one of his guests happen to be. During the finale the film stops for “the werewolf break” where viewers are given the opportunity to guess who they think is the monster. Let down by a shoddy excuse of a werewolf but still fun. Peter Cushing stars.

BEAST OF BLOOD 1970- Third in the BLOOD ISLAND trilogy with John Ashley still battling the evil Dr. Lorca and his monster creations. Not the best in the series but a good Drive-in time waster.

BEING, THE 1982- Silly monster on the loose flick from former porn makers. A silly monster but lots of gore and features Martin Landau and Ruth Buzzi. A woman’s son disappears and mutilated bodies turn up all over an Idaho town. Toxic waste is responsible for the monster that turns out to be the woman’s child.

BEWARE! THE BLOB 1972- Comedy sequel that features an all star cast of comedians and TV personalities. Directed by Larry Hagman (DALLAS). Re-released in the 80s with the tagline “The film JR shot!”

BEYOND, THE 1980 (Limited edition tin box)- Probably Fulci’s best about a Hotel built over one of the seven gateways to Hell features some of the most spectacular gore sequences ever put to film.

BEYOND THE DARKNESS 1979- Arguably the best from the prolific Joe D’Amato (aka Aristide Massachessi). A man digs up his dead girlfriend and keeps her around (if you get my drift). What follows is a cavalcade of violent and gory torture murders. Released as BURIED ALIVE in the US.

BIG ALLIGATOR RIVER 1979-JAWS clone from Sergio Martino about an island resort terrorized by a giant Alligator God worshipped by nearby natives. Uncut version features more gore than US version released straight to television here as THE GREAT ALLIGATOR. Stars Claudio Cassinelli, Barbara Bach and Mel Ferrer.

BLACK CHRISTMAS 1974- Predates HALLOWEEN by several years. A madman stalks a sorority house on Christmas using seriously disturbing phone calls and eventually murder. One of the best horror films ever. One of the most seriously creepy and goose bump inducing films you’ll ever see. Producers wanted director Clark (PORKY’S, A CHRISTMAS STORY) to do a sequel but handed the script to a young John Carpenter who tweaked it a bit and turned it into what would come to be known as HALLOWEEN. Olivia Hussey, John Saxon and Margot Kidder star. Remade in 2006.

BLACK DEMONS 1990- Moronic horror from Italian sleaze merchant Umberto Lenzi. The slow pacing and acting ruin what could have been a great horror picture. Even the frequent gore scenes can’t save it. Former slaves (complete with chains and shackles) return from the dead as Zombies to murder people staying in an old plantation house.

BLACK SABBATH 1963- Mario Bava’s excellent anthology film with three tales of horror. This DVD represents the original Italian cut with subtitles under its original title-THE 3 FACES OF FEAR. US cut had the opening and closing segments with Boris Karloff removed and the stories were switched around and one had alternate scenes shot that totally changed the storyline. Creepy and with great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

BLACK SUNDAY 1959- Heavy classic from Mario Bava about a witch burned at the stake seeking revenge hundreds of years later. Rivals anything from Hammer Studios. Starring Mark Damon and Barbara Steele who originally featured in an Elvis picture but walked off the set and ended up in Italy doing numerous horror movies instead. Highly recommended.

BLACK SUN-THE NANKING MASSACRE- Nauseating sequel to MEN BEHIND THE SUN. Approach with caution. Contains real footage from the victims of the massacre-the forgotten Holocaust.

BLACULA 1972- Excellent blaxploitation classic about an African prince that travels to Castle Dracula in hopes that he will help put an end to the slave trade. Instead Drac puts the bite on him and entombs the prince’s Queen with him forever. Years later he is unearthed in modern times and begins his search for his reincarnated lost love. Different in that Blacula hates what he is and commits suicide during the films conclusion.

BLIND DEAD Collection (Coffin Box 5 disc set)-see TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD, RETURN OF THE BLIND DEAD, THE GHOST GALLEON, NIGHT OF THE SEAGULLS.

BLOOD & BLACK LACE (2 disc)1963- The first example of the Giallo genre made popular by Dario Argento. Another classic Mario Bava film.

BLOOD BEAST TERROR, THE 1967- Peter Cushing investigates vampiric murders involving a giant moth like creature. Creepy atmosphere until you get a good look at the monster.

BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY’S TOMB 1971-Kinda boring Hammer horror outing that is their only Mummy picture to not have a Mummy in the film. A jewel belonging to an evil Egyptian Queen possesses a woman that becomes the tool of the Queens resurrection by murdering all who get in the way. Some gore and a little skin from the gorgeous Valerie Leon barely save it. Based on Bram Stoker’s novel JEWEL OF THE SEVEN STARS. Remade in 1980 as THE AWAKENING with Charlton Heston.

BLOOD ON SATAN’S CLAW, THE 1970-Children possessed by Linda Hayden murder their parents to resurrect the Devil. Patrick Wymark comes to the rescue. Lots of blood, beautifully atmospheric locations and a shocking rape scene.

BLOB, THE 1988- Nifty remake that shares similarities with Carpenter’s THE THING remake. This time the Blob is man made but no less dangerous. Different from most horror flicks in that you don’t know who’ll make it out alive as several main characters (including children) are killed early on.

BRAINIAC, THE 1960-Abel Salazar, a frequent face in Mexi-horror stars as an evil Baron burned at the stake who swears to return and destroy the descendants of his persecutors. He returns as a monster with claw arms and a pulsating head(!) sucking the brains from people via a long tongue. One of the wildest movies ever regardless of genre. Huge cult following.

BRIDES OF DRACULA 1960- One of the best ever from Hammer Studio’s. A great first film for newbies. Peter Cushing returns as Van Helsing to do battle not with Dracula but one of his disciples. Sumptuous sets, costumes and atmosphere make for a highly recommended horror classic.

BUBBA-HO-TEP 2003- Cult film about Elvis and JFK battling a Mummy at an old folks home.

BURIAL GROUND 1981- The wildest and most ridiculous of the Italian zombie pictures. No shortage of gore and definitely a party DVD. Some of the most laughably bad decisions made by a cast of characters ever. A great time if watched in the right frame of mind. The ending contains one of the most jaw dropping scenes ever that must be seen to be believed.

CALIGULA-THE UNTOLD STORY 1980-Amalgamation of porn and horror although this low budget effort from humble sleaze king Aristide Massacessi aka Joe D’Amato is surprisingly accurate. Loads of grim torture scenes and hardcore sex. Laura Gemser (EMANUELLE series) and British actor David Brandon (SHE, STAGE FRIGHT) star.

CANDY SNATCHERS, THE 1974- Cruel 70s exploitation about crooks that kidnap a young girl, burying her alive and demand money from her father. Several unexpected twists follow including a downbeat ending.

CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE 1980- Antonio Margheriti horror-war hybrid about a cannibalistic disease brought back from Vietnam by Italian horror favorite Giovanni Lombardo Radici (Italy’s most abused horror actor) and blaxploitation star Tony King. They try to recruit their old military Captain played by John Saxon into their cannibal regiment who through the course of the picture, fights to keep from succumbing to the disease but joins his former army buddies as they embark on a murderous spree killing and eating anyone who gets in their way. A final showdown in the sewers with police brandishing flamethrowers brings the film to an end. Released here in a severely truncated version as INVASION OF THE FLESH HUNTERS.

CANNIBAL FEROX 1981- Umberto Lenzi’s most notorious film about some college students who journey to the Amazon to prove cannibalism doesn’t exist but instead are captured, tortured and eaten for their trouble. Some of the most brutal violence ever put to celluloid. Genitals are eaten and a woman is strung up by meat hooks MAN CALLED HORSE style. Behind the scenes was almost as harrowing as the film itself.

CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 1979- A NY professor travels to the Amazon to find what happened to a documentary film crew lost and presumed eaten by cannibals. Their film cans are found containing the footage of their deaths. One of the most vile, cruel and disturbing movies ever made. Director Deodato almost got prison time because of the supposed murdering of the main cast. It was years before Deodato was able to film again. The movie was banned for years and even now in some countries the uncut version cannot be shown. One of many Italian adventures with real animal cruelty. Starring former porn actor Robert Kerman (DEBBIE DOES DALLAS, SPIDERMAN!)The films message resonates even more today with Americas fascination with “reality” TV.  Highly recommended.
CAPTAIN KRONOS-VAMPIRE HUNTER 1972- Swashbuckling Hammer entry featuring a sword wielding vampire killer who along with his hunchback assistant track a vampire that walks around in daylight and sucks the life essence as opposed to blood. Director Clemens (THE AVENGERS TV series) initially envisioned the film to spin off into a TV series of its own but it bombed at the box office scuppering plans for the show. The cheap sets and lackluster choreography (save for the last fight) showed Hammer were on their last legs. Recommended for Hammer completists only. Caroline Munro also stars.

CARRIE 1976- Classic Brian DePalma film based on Stephen Kings novel about a girl with telekinetic powers who is tormented by her schoolmates and at home by her religious nutcase mother. Stars a young John Travolta and Nancy Allen. Academy Award winner Sissy Spacek essays the role of the tragic Carrie.

CASTLE OF BLOOD 1964- Creepy b/w horror flick about a man who accepts a bet from Edgar Allen Poe to spend one night in a haunted castle. Nice atmosphere, scary scenes, nudity and Barbara Steele are enough to recommend this film by Antonio Margheriti who remade it in color in 1973 as WEB OF THE SPIDER starring Klaus Kinski.

CHILDREN OF THE CORN 1984- Movie based on Stephen King’s short story about a town of homicidal children that have killed their parents are visited upon by a newlywed couple and try to escape the murderous tykes and their leader who worships “He who walks behind the rows.” So bad it’s good. Spawned five sequels (and counting).

CHILDREN SHOULDN’T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS 1972- Bob Clark’s first stab at horror is a neat little low budget blackly humorous take on Romero’s zombie milestone NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. An acting troupe travel to an island graveyard to perform a fake resurrection but end up raising the dead for real. They board themselves up in the caretakers house and fight off the zombie horde. Creepy make up effects by a young Tom Savini. Set for remake status in 2007 by Clark himself.

CHURCH, THE 1992- Former Argento acolyte Michele Soavi directs this story of a church built over a mass grave of satanic followers and in modern times the church is reopened and predictably all hell breaks loose.

CIRCUS OF FEAR 1967-Disappointing thriller masquerading as a horror film. Klaus Kinski and Christopher Lee.

CIRCUS OF HORRORS 1960- Grisly British horror starring Anton Diffring as an evil Nazi doctor working as a plastic surgeon under the guise of a traveling circus . Those that want to leave or threaten to reveal who he is meet with gruesome deaths. Its nasty streak was a bit ahead of its time.

CITIZEN TOXIE-TOXIC AVENGER 4 2004- Ridiculous third sequel to the trash classic original is the best of the sequels but these later Troma entries just don’t have that something special the earlier films had.

CITY OF THE DEAD 1959- Excellent British horror film starring Christopher Lee about a young woman doing a thesis on witchcraft. Her teacher sends her to a mysterious town where she disappears and her friends come looking for her. Devil worship and a witch burned at the stake hundred of years before figure into the story. Great atmospherics and cinematography. Highly recommended.

CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD 1981- Lucio Fulci’s classic gore film part of his zombie tetralogy. A priest hangs himself in a graveyard and opens the gateway to hell and the dead to walk the Earth. Some spectacular effects including the woman who throws up her entire intestinal tract. American TV star Christopher George and Cartriona MacColl star.

COMEDY OF TERRORS, THE 1964- Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff star in this delightful horror comedy that’s not quite as good as the trios previous collaboration THE RAVEN the year previous.  Price & Lorre run a funeral parlor and business becomes slow so they find ways to speed up production. Also features Basil Rathbone in a cameo.

CONTAMINATION 1980- Luigi Cozzi’s ALIEN clone about a cargo ship full of strange alien eggs that explode causing anyone near them to become covered in alien goo and in turn explode themselves. A giant alien Cyclops shows up during the finale. Starring Ian McCullough from ZOMBIE and ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE.

COUNTESS DRACULA 1970- So-so Hammer horror redeemed only by the performance of Ingrid Pitt even though she is dubbed by another actress. Her beautiful body demands your attention. Not nearly as good as the similarly themed DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS.

COUNT DRACULA’S GREAT LOVE 1972-Naschy, a former bodybuilder, tackles the Dracula legend this time portraying a sympathetic Count. Unconvincing as Dracula but the film has its moments.

COUNT YORGA, VAMPIRE 1970- What was initially conceived as a soft core porn feature turned into one of the biggest horror hits of the 1970s. Successfully took the vampire out of the gothic trappings and into the modern era. Very creepy and scary vampire make-up. Nifty twist at the end too. A sequel was shot mere months after the release of this one and rushed out the following year. Robert Quarry is excellent as the evil Yorga. Most fans prefer the sequel but both are worth your time.

CRAZIES, THE 1973- A gas leak causes the occupants of a small town to go berserk and kill anyone they come into contact with. The military quarantines the town and no one is allowed inside or out. Similar in structure to Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Set for a remake in 2007.

CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON 1954- Some scientists find a fossil of a prehistoric fish-man and encounter one in the Amazon. Classic creature feature that got two sequels.

CREATURE WALKS AMONG US, THE 1956- Third film in the BLACK LAGOON series finds the Gill Man captured but burned badly and near death. Doctors remove his gills and put him in a cage. He escapes and the resulting havoc ensues.

CREEPSHOW 1982- Horror anthology in the spirit of the old EC comics of the 50s features five original stories with a stellar cast-Adrienne Barbeau, Bob Gale, Hal Holbrook, RG Armstrong, EG Marshall, Ted Danson, Leslie Nielsen, Ed Harris and even Stephen King stars in a segment. Gore by the great Tom Savini and directed by George Romero. Followed by an inferior sequel five years later.

CRY OF THE BANSHEE 1969- Disappointing witch hunting movie riding the coattails of the superior WITCHFINDER GENERAL also starring Vincent Price. From Gordon Hessler (GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD, PRAY FOR DEATH)

CURSE OF THE CRYING WOMAN 1960- Creepy b/w Mexican horror based on a true folk tale about a mysterious, ghostly woman living in the woods.

CURSE OF THE DEVIL 1973-Paul Naschy again as werewolf Waldemar Daninsky this time taking on a devil worship cult and Countess Bathory. Naschy played the sympathetic wolfman character 11 times.

CURSE OF THE DOLL PEOPLE (US and international versions) 1960- b/w mexi-horror about a witch doctor who seeks revenge on a group of people that steal an Aztec idol and are murdered one by one by child sized doll people with large needle like weapons. The witch doctor has a zombiefied assistant also.

CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, THE 1957- The Hammer classic that started it all. The first color Frank film and also the first to feature gore (tame by today’s standards). According to star Christopher Lee this film once released in the US single handedly saved Warner Brothers from bankruptcy. A major classic.

CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF 1961- Excellent Hammer horror and the only werewolf picture they ever did. Based on the story THE WEREWOLF OF PARIS. Starring Oliver Reed.

CUT & RUN 1985- Ruggero Deodato’s final chapter in his cannibal trilogy.  A startlingly odd cast for a film of this nature-Richard Lynch, Willie Aames(CHARLES IN CHARGE), Lisa Blount (OFFICER & A GENTLEMAN), Michael Berryman and Laurence Fishburn. Severely cut in the US.

CYCLONE 1977-A cyclone strands vacationers at sea and they resort to cannibalism to survive until a pack of sharks show up to devour the remainder of the cast. Not as good as it could have been and at 120 minutes it’s overlong. From Rene Cardona Sr. who also directed SURVIVE! and GUYANA.

ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES-watched this and its sequel over Xmas,its great stuff with Vincent Price on great form.

 AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON 1981-yes a true classic horror comedy and i'll have to think about whether it is the funniest though Undecided

ARMY OF DARKNESS 1992-i've only ever seen the first 2 in the trilogy which made a big impression when i was much younger.Nowadays i'm not sure if i'd enjoy(certainly not Mrs Banjo) this sort of movie.

Sorry never seen any of the others though i'd like to see the Italian Exorcist clone.

Lots of gore and so-so acting but the many scenes of bloody violence make up for the shortcomings as do the authentic shots of the once notorious 42nd Street in New York City which has been transformed from a gallery of movie houses showing some of the most depraved movies imaginable, porn shops and the dregs of society to a literal strip mall of Disney and Warner Brothers shops geared towards a more family friendly set.

BEAST MUST DIE, THE 1973-Strange Amicus horror-blaxploitation re-telling of TEN LITTLE INDIANS.

US cut had the opening and closing segments with Boris Karloff removed and the stories were switched around and one had alternate scenes shot that totally changed the storyline. Creepy and with great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Sorry apart from the Beast Must Die(not very good i'm afraid Sad ) i'm ignorant of the other titles though i'm sure at some point i'll catch up on some Italian horror,especially Mario Bava who i understand has used the likes of Christopher Lee in his movies.

BLIND DEAD Collection (Coffin Box 5 disc set)-see TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD, RETURN OF THE BLIND DEAD, THE GHOST GALLEON, NIGHT OF THE SEAGULLS.

BLOOD & BLACK LACE (2 disc)1963- The first example of the Giallo genre made popular by Dario Argento. Another classic Mario Bava film.

BLOOD BEAST TERROR, THE 1967- Peter Cushing investigates vampiric murders involving a giant moth like creature. Creepy atmosphere until you get a good look at the monster.

BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY’S TOMB 1971-Kinda boring Hammer horror outing that is their only Mummy picture to not have a Mummy in the film. A jewel belonging to an evil Egyptian Queen possesses a woman that becomes the tool of the Queens resurrection by murdering all who get in the way. Some gore and a little skin from the gorgeous Valerie Leon barely save it. Based on Bram Stoker’s novel JEWEL OF THE SEVEN STARS. Remade in 1980 as THE AWAKENING with Charlton Heston.

BLOOD ON SATAN’S CLAW, THE 1970-Children possessed by Linda Hayden murder their parents to resurrect the Devil. Patrick Wymark comes to the rescue. Lots of blood, beautifully atmospheric locations and a shocking rape scene.

BLOB, THE 1988- Nifty remake that shares similarities with Carpenter’s THE THING remake. This time the Blob is man made but no less dangerous. Different from most horror flicks in that you don’t know who’ll make it out alive as several main characters (including children) are killed early on.

BRAINIAC, THE 1960-Abel Salazar, a frequent face in Mexi-horror stars as an evil Baron burned at the stake who swears to return and destroy the descendants of his persecutors. He returns as a monster with claw arms and a pulsating head(!) sucking the brains from people via a long tongue. One of the wildest movies ever regardless of genre. Huge cult following.

BRIDES OF DRACULA 1960- One of the best ever from Hammer Studio’s. A great first film for newbies. Peter Cushing returns as Van Helsing to do battle not with Dracula but one of his disciples. Sumptuous sets, costumes and atmosphere make for a highly recommended horror classic.

BUBBA-HO-TEP 2003- Cult film about Elvis and JFK battling a Mummy at an old folks home.

BURIAL GROUND 1981- The wildest and most ridiculous of the Italian zombie pictures. No shortage of gore and definitely a party DVD. Some of the most laughably bad decisions made by a cast of characters ever. A great time if watched in the right frame of mind. The ending contains one of the most jaw dropping scenes ever that must be seen to be believed.

From this lot i can highly recommend Blood On Satans Claw(my current favourite) and Blood From the Mummys Tomb(maybe Hammers best Mummy film).Gonna rewatch Brides Of Dracula soon-again you're showing me up with the rest AC Grin

CALIGULA-THE UNTOLD STORY 1980-Amalgamation of porn and horror although this low budget effort from humble sleaze king Aristide Massacessi aka Joe D’Amato is surprisingly accurate. Loads of grim torture scenes and hardcore sex. Laura Gemser (EMANUELLE series) and British actor David Brandon (SHE, STAGE FRIGHT) star.

CANDY SNATCHERS, THE 1974- Cruel 70s exploitation about crooks that kidnap a young girl, burying her alive and demand money from her father. Several unexpected twists follow including a downbeat ending.

CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE 1980- Antonio Margheriti horror-war hybrid about a cannibalistic disease brought back from Vietnam by Italian horror favorite Giovanni Lombardo Radici (Italy’s most abused horror actor) and blaxploitation star Tony King. They try to recruit their old military Captain played by John Saxon into their cannibal regiment who through the course of the picture, fights to keep from succumbing to the disease but joins his former army buddies as they embark on a murderous spree killing and eating anyone who gets in their way. A final showdown in the sewers with police brandishing flamethrowers brings the film to an end. Released here in a severely truncated version as INVASION OF THE FLESH HUNTERS.

CANNIBAL FEROX 1981- Umberto Lenzi’s most notorious film about some college students who journey to the Amazon to prove cannibalism doesn’t exist but instead are captured, tortured and eaten for their trouble. Some of the most brutal violence ever put to celluloid. Genitals are eaten and a woman is strung up by meat hooks MAN CALLED HORSE style. Behind the scenes was almost as harrowing as the film itself.

CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 1979- A NY professor travels to the Amazon to find what happened to a documentary film crew lost and presumed eaten by cannibals. Their film cans are found containing the footage of their deaths. One of the most vile, cruel and disturbing movies ever made. Director Deodato almost got prison time because of the supposed murdering of the main cast. It was years before Deodato was able to film again. The movie was banned for years and even now in some countries the uncut version cannot be shown. One of many Italian adventures with real animal cruelty. Starring former porn actor Robert Kerman (DEBBIE DOES DALLAS, SPIDERMAN!)The films message resonates even more today with Americas fascination with “reality” TV.  Highly recommended.
CAPTAIN KRONOS-VAMPIRE HUNTER 1972- Swashbuckling Hammer entry featuring a sword wielding vampire killer who along with his hunchback assistant track a vampire that walks around in daylight and sucks the life essence as opposed to blood. Director Clemens (THE AVENGERS TV series) initially envisioned the film to spin off into a TV series of its own but it bombed at the box office scuppering plans for the show. The cheap sets and lackluster choreography (save for the last fight) showed Hammer were on their last legs. Recommended for Hammer completists only. Caroline Munro also stars.

CARRIE 1976- Classic Brian DePalma film based on Stephen Kings novel about a girl with telekinetic powers who is tormented by her schoolmates and at home by her religious nutcase mother. Stars a young John Travolta and Nancy Allen. Academy Award winner Sissy Spacek essays the role of the tragic Carrie.

CASTLE OF BLOOD 1968- Creepy b/w horror flick about a man who accepts a bet from Edgar Allen Poe to spend one night in a haunted castle. Nice atmosphere, scary scenes, nudity and Barbara Steele are enough to recommend this film by Antonio Margheriti who remade it in color in 1973 as WEB OF THE SPIDER starring Klaus Kinski.


Only seen Carrie from this lot which was a pretty powerful film i recall.

Definately like to see anything else by sw director Margheriti Afro

CHILDREN OF THE CORN 1984- Movie based on Stephen King’s short story about a town of homicidal children that have killed their parents are visited upon by a newlywed couple and try to escape the murderous tykes and their leader who worships “He who walks behind the rows.” So bad it’s good. Spawned five sequels (and counting).

CHILDREN SHOULDN’T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS 1972- Bob Clark’s first stab at horror is a neat little low budget blackly humorous take on Romero’s zombie milestone NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. An acting troupe travel to an island graveyard to perform a fake resurrection but end up raising the dead for real. They board themselves up in the caretakers house and fight off the zombie horde. Creepy make up effects by a young Tom Savini. Set for remake status in 2007 by Clark himself.

CHURCH, THE 1992- Former Argento acolyte Michele Soavi directs this story of a church built over a mass grave of satanic followers and in modern times the church is reopened and predictably all hell breaks loose.

CIRCUS OF FEAR 1967-Disappointing thriller masquerading as a horror film. Klaus Kinski and Christopher Lee.

CIRCUS OF HORRORS 1960- Grisly British horror starring Anton Diffring as an evil Nazi doctor working as a plastic surgeon under the guise of a traveling circus . Those that want to leave or threaten to reveal who he is meet with gruesome deaths. Its nasty streak was a bit ahead of its time.

CITIZEN TOXIE-TOXIC AVENGER 4 2004- Ridiculous third sequel to the trash classic original is the best of the sequels but these later Troma entries just don’t have that something special the earlier films had.

CITY OF THE DEAD 1959- Excellent British horror film starring Christopher Lee about a young woman doing a thesis on witchcraft. Her teacher sends her to a mysterious town where she disappears and her friends come looking for her. Devil worship and a witch burned at the stake hundred of years before figure into the story. Great atmospherics and cinematography. Highly recommended.

CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD 1981- Lucio Fulci’s classic gore film part of his zombie tetralogy. A priest hangs himself in a graveyard and opens the gateway to hell and the dead to walk the Earth. Some spectacular effects including the woman who throws up her entire intestinal tract. American TV star Christopher George and Cartriona MacColl star.

COMEDY OF TERRORS, THE 1964- Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff star in this delightful horror comedy that’s not quite as good as the trios previous collaboration THE RAVEN the year previous.  Price & Lorre run a funeral parlor and business becomes slow so they find ways to speed up production. Also features Basil Rathbone in a cameo.

CONTAMINATION 1980- Luigi Cozzi’s ALIEN clone about a cargo ship full of strange alien eggs that explode causing anyone near them to become covered in alien goo and in turn explode themselves. A giant alien Cyclops shows up during the finale. Starring Ian McCullough from ZOMBIE and ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE.

COUNTESS DRACULA 1970- So-so Hammer horror redeemed only by the performance of Ingrid Pitt even though she is dubbed by another actress. Her beautiful body demands your attention. Not nearly as good as the similarly themed DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS.

COUNT DRACULA’S GREAT LOVE 1972-Naschy, a former bodybuilder, tackles the Dracula legend this time portraying a sympathetic Count. Unconvincing as Dracula but the film has its moments.

COUNT YORGA, VAMPIRE 1970- What was initially conceived as a soft core porn feature turned into one of the biggest horror hits of the 1970s. Successfully took the vampire out of the gothic trappings and into the modern era. Very creepy and scary vampire make-up. Nifty twist at the end too. A sequel was shot mere months after the release of this one and rushed out the following year. Robert Quarry is excellent as the evil Yorga. Most fans prefer the sequel but both are worth your time.

They keep showing all the Children Of The Corn movies on the UK Horror Channel but from the snippets i've seen they all look highly dodgy!! Undecided

Circus Of Fear-never seen this but like anything with Christopher Lee(and the same goes for Vincent Price and Peter Cushing i suppose) in it i'd like to. Smiley

City Of The Dead-agree with you 100% Afro

Circus Of Horrors - will let you know what i think in due course

Countess Dracula - a must see!!

I keep seeing the Count Yorga title pop up every now and then so i'd like to check this out too. Wink

Here's the first set of my HORROR collection. Anyone seen any of these? Banjo?

 ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES, THE 1970- Classic black horror comedy starring Vincent Price as a doctor who exacts revenge on the nine doctors who failed to save his dying wife on the operating table. The nine plagues of the Pharaohs are his elaborate tools for revenge. A sequel followed.

 AENIGMA 1987- CARRIE clone from Italian horror master Lucio Fulci and not very good. Made during his health declining years and recommended for completists only.

ADIOS ZIO TOM 1971-Arguably the most notorious Mondo movie ever. One of the most jaw dropping cinematic experiences ever. The theme is racism throughout the ages. How the directors were able to get the black actors to perform these most humiliating acts of degradation is anyone’s guess. The longer Italian cut (still banned in Italy to this day) tries to appear “respectable”.

AFRICA, ADDIO 1970- Italian cut of the turmoil and brutal conflict in Africa during the 60s. Several years in the making and contains real assassinations, death and animal cruelty. Made headlines when it was said the directors actually paid African military forces to murder innocents for the camera. The case was never proven though. Nonetheless a famous addition to the Mondo genre.

AFRICA-BLOOD & GUTS 1970-US cut minus over an hours worth of footage. Mostly the exploitation elements of the original version. Less violent but no less brutal.

ALONE IN THE DARK 1982-Excellent slasher flick with a dream horror cast. A black out causes an electronically operated insane asylum to shut down and the crazies escape and pursue a new doctor whom several of the inmates believe killed their previous physician. They lay siege to the man’s house and terrorize his family. Jack Palance, Donald Pleasance and Martin Landau star.

AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON 1981-Arguably the best example of a horror-comedy from John Landis(ANIMAL HOUSE).

ANGRY RED PLANET, THE 1960-Low budget sci-fi with horror elements about Mars planning an attack on Earth and scientists rush there in a spaceship to stop them. Once there the film is shot through a red filter and the cast encounter a number of monsters including the infamous giant spider-bat-rat creature.

ANTICHRIST, THE 1974-Italian EXORCIST clone with a good cast. More distasteful than its American counterpart. Released here minus 30 minutes as THE TEMPTER. Mel Ferrer and Arthur Kennedy star. An unsettling Morricone score.

ANTHROPOPHAGUS 1980 (2 disc)-Notorious shocker that was severely trimmed during its initial release. Vacationers on a Greek Isle run afoul of a cannibalistic madman who has killed and eaten the island’s inhabitants. Original US release replaced the Italian score with music lifted from the original TWILIGHT ZONE TV show.

ARMY OF DARKNESS 1992-Third chapter in Raimi’s EVIL DEAD trilogy. Theatrical version was seriously compromised by Universal before release resulting in an uneven film even in its complete form. Still enjoyable however but not the gorefest of the previous two installments.



 "The Abominable Dr. Phibes" is a great revenge picture. That frog mask scene is most disturbing.


Been wanting to see "American werewolf in London" for years.

"Army Of Darkness" is a lot of fun but pales in comparison to the first two "Evil Dead" installments.
I prefer the first one since it is the creepiest (to me).

True that about EVIL DEAD 1.

You're missing out on AMERICAN WEREWOLF...one of the greats. Not as good as THE HOWLING, IMO which contains THE BEST werewolf transformation ever.

DARK, THE 1979- A silly but nonetheless spooky horror about a visit from a not so friendly alien that tears people’s heads off or blows them up with laser beams from its eyes. Tobe Hooper directed two days and was replaced by director Cardos. The original script was about an insane killer that decapitated its victims but after filming already began producer Montoro decided to change the killer to an outer space monster. A great cast though-William Devane, Cathy Lee Crosby, Keenan Wynne, Richard Jaekal, Casey Kasem and believe it or not Paris Hilton’s mother as the first victim. A Dick Clark(!) production.

DARKNESS FALLS 1998-Profitable take on the Tooth Fairy legend. Kind of ridiculous but contains some genuinely scary sequences.

DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS 1971- One of the best vampire films ever made. Modern day erotic horror about Elizabeth Bathory trying to subjugate a young married couple. Beautifully shot.

DAWN OF THE DEAD 1979-Romero’s classic. Begat a surge of Italian made clones that spotlighted extreme gore and violence over logic. The original ending saw Peter kill himself and Fran decapitating herself in the helicopter blades.

DAWN OF THE DEAD 2004-Remake to Romero’s classic original. Surprisingly good and even nods to the Italian zombie films that followed the 79 film.

DAWN OF THE MUMMY 1981-Fashion photographers desecrate an ancient tomb and incur the wrath of a dead pharaoh who resurrects his followers that crawl out of the sand as flesh eating mummies. Lots of gore. Energetic score from the team that would create a US sensation with the POWER RANGERS TV show imported from Japan.

DAY AFTER, THE 1982- Horrifying made for TV movie that showed what would happen if the US came under a nuclear attack. It caused such a stir it was shown only once. Very depressing movie from the director of STAR TREK 2: THE WRATH OF KHAN.

DAY OF THE ANIMALS 1977- William Girdler directs this film about the depletion of the Ozone Layer causing animals to go berserk and attack people. Christopher George is the mountain guide that leads a group of vacationers on a hiking trip where they are attacked by mountain lions, grizzly’s, hawks, snakes and various other creatures. Also stars Richard Jaekel, Lynda Day George, Michael Ansara and a VERY villainous turn by Leslie Nielsen.

DAY OF THE DEAD 1985-Romero’s second sequel was originally to be a much bigger, more ambitious outing but at the last minute the budget was drastically cut down since Romero refused to release the film in any form other than unrated. Still a worthy follow-up that’s unfairly derided by fans for being too talky. Some of Savini’s best effects work. A remake(!) has been shot by Steve Miner (HOUSE).

DAY OF THE DEAD 2: CONTAGIUM 2005-So-so no budget zombie outing capitalizing on the Romero name. Hated by fans, it’s not a total wash but has ‘Sci-Fi Channel’ written all over it.

DEAD ALIVE 1993- Peter Jackson’s third chapter in his unofficial gore trilogy of comedic horrors. One of the best zombie flicks ever made. The Sumatran Rat-Monkey causes a zombie plague that spreads through a small Australian town during what appears to be the 1950s. Some of the wildest gore sequences ever including a lawnmower massacre that goes on for a bit too long. Jackson of course went on to helm the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy and the 2005 version of KING KONG.

DEAD & BURIED 1981- EC Comics style horror movie about a fishing town with strange inhabitants who violently murder anyone that comes into town. To go further would reveal too much.

DEADLY SPAWN, THE 1982-Cult classic. One of the most beloved of the ALIEN type movies. Really nasty looking multi headed creature with LOTS of teeth comes to Earth hiding out in a boys basement. LOTS of ambitious gore and one hell of an ending. The kind of low budget effort you don’t see anymore. Received an ambitious sequel in ‘88 (THE ALIEN FACTOR) but it didn’t see release until 1990.

DEATHDREAM 1972-Spooky as all hell take on THE MONKEY’S PAW. A woman’s son is killed in Vietnam and she wishes him alive. Later that night he comes home only something is VERY wrong with him. Director Clark would later direct PORKY’S and A CHRISTMAS STORY.

DEATHMASTER, THE 1972- Loose third chapter in the YORGA series. Quarry plays a vampire that subjugates a band of hippies to the ways of the undead.

DEEP BLUE SEA 1997-Hack director Renny Harlin directs his version of JAWS (Spielberg has nothing to worry about) about genetically enhanced sharks that get loose and terrorize people at a research station at sea. Some good scenes, some bad CGI and even worse dialog. A good bad movie for the weekend.

DEEP RED 1975-Probably Argento’s best next to SUSPIRIA. SAW’s cackling dummy owes much to this film. One of many gory whodunit’s from Argento.

DEMONIA 1990-Fulci’s return to his roots is a slightly disappointing affair with only the extreme gore holding it together. Contains one of the nastiest death scenes ever, lifted from CUT & RUN and does it one better. Fulci would pass on in 96 a couple of months after his appearance at Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors. He never realized until then how many US fans he had.

DEMONS 1985-Energetic horror from Lamberto Bava and Producer Dario Argento. People get a free ticket to see a new horror film only the film comes to life turning the audience into flesh eating monsters. Almost non stop gore and a pounding heavy metal score featuring MOTLEY CRUE, BILLY IDOL, PRETTY MAIDS and ACCEPT. Brain dead fun that’s highly recommended.

DEMONS 2 1987-Disappointing sequel lacks the fun of the original. More slime than gore it has its moments. Cribs from too many US horror films brings it down.

DERANGED 1974- The most accurate account of Wisconsin cannibal Ed Gein. Ezra’s mom dies so he digs her up along with others and keeps them in his house. He then begins murdering locals and making furniture and ornaments out of their skin and body parts until he his caught at the films end. Features early special make up effects by a young Tom Savini.
