Next Wednesday is Halloween, so we’re going with the classics:
Yup, it’s almost Halloween, so we’re going with the classics:
It’s almost Holloween, so today we have a double header of Vampires and Werewolves. The first is a low buget classic from 1987. A group of vampires roaming Oklahoma those recent yet far away days before ubiquitous cell phones, multiple 24/7 news channels and new media news back channels. There is plenty of blood and mayhem to go around in this dark and violent vampire flick that never uses the word “vampire.” Dog Soldiers was made fifteen years later, but has a lot of the same noir grittiness. A small group of British soldiers are dropped into the remote countryside for some “routine” training. Add a group of werewolves that “just happen to be in the area”, and you have a nice flick to get you in the mood for Holloween.
Time to wrap up the Halloween series with a triple play of classics.
Young Frankenstein, Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder wrote this amazingly funny movie. One of the comedy films of all time, and filmed in glorious Black and White with a lot of the original lab props from the first Frankenstein film.
Innocent Blood, vampires, mobsters, cops, comedy and casual nudity from Anne Parillaud. There is a lot to like in this film.
An American Werewolf in London, a lighthearted look of what can go wrong when you don’t stay on the road and don’t “ware the moon.” Just remember Jack, he didn’t mean to call you meatloaf. Big bonus: Jenny Agutter!
