2020 Scary Movie Challenge Day 25

96 comments:

  1. Alberto de Martino's BLOOD LINK (1982, YouTube) for the first time.

    "Eyes of Laura Mars," "Dead Ringers" style.

    or

    Two Michael Moriartys for price of one.

    1. HOLY FUCKING SHIT! :-O This might be my favorite find of Scary Movie Month and Junesploitation! 2020 combined. It's basically an Italian giallo (from the director of "MST3K" classic "The Pumaman") that milks its premise, leading man's acting chops and attractive female actors for all they're worth. Did I mention Moriarty beats the crap out of Cameron Mitchell? I'm high from "Blood Link" right now, and #SCMM still has a week left to go! :-D

  2. THE INCREDIBLE 2-HEADED TRANSPLANT (1971, Blu-ray) for the first time.

    "Re-Animator" + Bruce Dern - Lovecraft + Casey Kasem = CHEEEEEEESE!

    or

    What waste of AIP's Poe Cycle profits.

  3. THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (1951, TCM)

    The "Poltergeist" of Howard Hawk's distinguished career.

    or

    Whiter than arctic snow? The entire cast.

    1. I can only imagine how a 1930s audience responded to The Black Cat. Definitely one of the strangest movies to come from Hollywood at the time.
