A Black Veil for LisaA Black Veil for Lisa (1968), a well-acted police thriller from genre director Massimo Dallamano, doubles as an early giallo prototype. Hamburg detective Franz Bulon (Mills) is in the middle of an investigation into a powerful drug syndicate headed by an overlord known as Schuermann. But each time Bulon locates someone willing to talk about the kingpin, a knife-wielding killer slashes the would-be witness, and a frustrated Bulon finds himself back at the beginning. To make matters worse, Bulon is plagued with doubts about his beautiful -- and much younger -- wife Lisa (Paluzzi)...

Burn Witch BurnA slickly-made British flick about witches at a contemporary English college, Burn, Witch, Burn (1962) is a heckuva lot more fun than it has a right to be. Based on Fritz Leiber's 1943 horror novel Conjure Wife and aided by a taut screenplay co-written by classic Twilight Zone writer Charles Beaumont and horror/science-fiction master Richard Matheson, this supernatural outing is well worth your time. There's a deliciously malevolent performance by Johnston as a jealous witch, and a number of great setups to spare including a stone eagle come to life to attack our hypnotized protagonist...

Blood RageShot in 1983 but not released theatrically until 1987, Blood Rage -- a "twin brothers, one is a psychotic killer, which one is it?" slasher -- is not as terrible as it could have been. Thanks to the unique charms of veteran actress Louise Lasser, and some sassy gore effects from Ed French, this suburban slasher is mild fun and has a few entertaining moments. Lasser is always watchable and brings a quirky seriousness to her portrayal of troubled mom Maddy. None of it is great, mind you. But there's a sleepy, familiar genre repetition that infuses its rhythm, and the overwrought finale pays homage to the best of the splatter subgenre...

Collecting Life: An Interview with Samantha EggarFor over five decades, Samantha Eggar has forged an impressive career across every performing medium. Whether it's her Oscar-nominated portrayal of a terrified student held hostage in William Wyler's The Collector (1965), or starring roles in Walk Don't Run (1966) with Cary Grant, Doctor Dolittle (1967) with Rex Harrison, or The Molly Maguires (1970) with Richard Harris, Eggar is always a captivating presence. She is also well remembered for her genre work, including The Dead Are Alive (1972), Return from the Ashes (1965), The Uncanny (1977), The Exterminator (1980), Demonoid (1981) -- and of course her unforgettably volcanic performance in David Cronenberg's The Brood (1979)...

The Return of the VampireBela strikes back as another of the blood-drinking undead in The Return of the Vampire (1944), an atmospheric and entertaining chiller from Columbia Pictures. Directed by Lew Landers, Return is notable for its use of elements that had previously been verboten in horror films (Lugosi’s own Dracula, for example): namely the sight of a thirsty bloodsucker rising from his coffin, and a close-up shot of the vampire’s needlepoint bite marks on a victim’s throat. Armed with enough Gothic melodrama that will make any fan’s heart beat in admiration, The Return of the Vampire doesn't disappoint...

The Curse of the WerewolfHammer Film's sole ode to the lycanthrope legend, The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) boasts wonderful direction by Terence Fisher, superb beast makeup from Roy Ashton, and a spicy, Freudian-laced script from Anthony Hinds. Rather loosely based on the 1933 historical horror novel The Werewolf of Paris by author Guy Endore, and repurposing leftover sets from Hammer's abandoned production The Rape of Sabena, Curse of the Werewolf ranks up there with Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and Horror of Dracula (1958) as one of Hammer's crown gems...

House of WhipcordWe initiated new site contributor Garvan Giltinan by asking him to review Pete Walker's 1974 sleazefest House of Whipcord. Reviled in the '70s as a creator of exploitative trash, Walker has become a cult figure over the last decade, as film scholars delve into his small catalogue and realize the man has something of value to contribute to British film history. For Whipcord, the recipe is rather simple: mix together a little blood and nudity, toss in menacing wardens Barbara Markham & Sheila Keith, some whips and other assorted tortures, and voila!, you've got an exploitation piece de resistance...

The Name of the Game Is KillHow to summarize director Gunnar Hellström's bizarre cult horror The Name of the Game Is Kill (1968)? Well, for starters, imagine Tennessee Williams' The Fugitive Kind (1959) meets Carlos Aured's House of Psychotic Women (1974). There's a palpable sense of feminine psychological decay which surrounds Name of the Game, in the way that only a late '60s grindhouse horror can generate. Add to that the coarse, dry flint of a grounded performance from Steve McGarrett (er, we mean Jack Lord) and you've got just the right balance of tension needed to ignite an already combustible cult flick...
