  1. Shirtless cowboy nonsense from David DeCoteau...
  2. I thought it was interesting but lacked the visual style of the best giallos. I agree with you that the best part were the scenes between Naschy and Erica Blanc. The film does have plenty of female nudity and a great sleaze factor.
  3. I finally got to see Tom de Simone's "The Idol" (1979) about a college track star (Kevin Redding) sexual awakening with his team mates. De Simone is a true film maker and the movie is shot and edited like a Hollywood production . Redding , who reminds me of Jan Michael Vincent, is very good not just naturally sexy but emotionally true. This is what makes the movie a gay erotic classic - yes there are plenty of hot sex- specially a rub down with his coach, but the movie goes beyond sexploitation The movie is available on an excellent looking DVD from Bijou Classic. I bought mine on TLA vi
  4. One of the modern masters of horror and fantasy film making
  5. McNally was a great playwright
  6. The more I think about the less sense it makes- it's suppose to be about a romance gone wrong- but call me sexist but I was on the side of the boyfriend and felt sorry for him at the end. The girl was obviously nuts ( just like her sister) so she fit right into the cult. The film was never scary or suspenseful. I hated "Hereditary" but at least that movie had a real sense of dread and some truly horrifying moments.
  7. "Midsommar" (2019) a group of not too bright American college students travel to Sweeden were they fall into a new age cult with a sinister secret. The film does look great and there are some eerie moments. But the movie was not scary- yes there is some disturbing imagery- but seriously if you watch some ritualistic suicide would you not just get up and run?!
  8. The current virus fear gripping our world is nothing new specially in sci- fi movies
  9. Probably he would have hooked up with some one in the art world in New York or San Francisco . It would have been nice if Doctor Finch would have met some one nice on that trip to Italy.
  10. I agree I was expecting it to seem dating but there is something about the theme that makes it timeless- a true classic
  11. I just saw John Schlesinger's extraordinary film from a an original script by Penelope Gilliat. A real adult dram about a love triangle between a gay doctor (Peter Finch), a straight woman (Glenda Jackson) and their bisexual lover (Murray Head). I can see how that kiss between Finch and Murray is really a ground breaking moment in gay film history. It made gay love a very natural thing. Out on blu ray from the Criterion collection

    Mayor Pete

    I'm sure Mayor Pete will return
  13. "Voyage of the Dammed" (1976) there a plenty of stars and subplots in this fact base film about the doomed Jewish passengers aboard a luxury liner trying to flee Nazi Germany in 1936. Aarom (Paul Koslo) and Joseph (Jonathan Pryce) seem to be a gay couple. They share a cabin and are always seen together. They do not have any love scenes and their relationship is rather vague even for 70's - but it's clear they care for each other. There are too many scenes of the Nazis beating them up but at least in the climax they do take some action. The film is long and feels more like a mini series t

    Mayor Pete

    Reality Check if Mayor Pete was straight he would probably be on top of the polls- even though to be fair his homosexuality is barely mentioned- and the Democrats of course would never attack him on that level. There are some gays who seem to think Mayor Pete is not gay enough- because you know he is husband is not a transgender person of color- but these people need a reality check. I'm not sure why Mayor Peter is not attracting black voters but hey I fail to see the appeal of Comrade Bernie.

    Mayor Pete

    I agree and he will get my vote
  16. "Diecisiete" (Seventeen) (2019) from Spain- a comedy drama about two brothers searching for a lost dog. It's not a gay film but I do like the actors and the relationship between the brothers.
  17. "Assignment Terror" (1970) ("Los Monstruos del Terror) this one should have really been called "Plan Ten From Outer Space". Dr Odo Warnoff ( Michael Rennie) is actually an alien from planet Ummo on a mission to invade Earth by reviving classic monsters. Frankenstein, the Mummy, a Vampire and a Wolfman ( Paul Naschy) . The movie is a wacky mix of James Bond gagedtry and old fashion Universal monster mash. Karin Door a long way from James Bond and Hitchcock plays one of his assistants . Naschy wrote the action packed script . This is the sort of monster movie one loves when you are a kid b
  18. I was never a big Naschy fan and his films were badly release in the United States. but after watching them in the great Scream factory sets- one can really appreciate the scope of his talent as writer , director and actor. On a personal note I spent a lot of Summers in Spain - so many of the locations look familiar

    Mayor Pete

    I would have never imagined that we would have an out gay man running for President so it makes be very proud that Mayor Pete is on our team- and I do hope this movie has happy ending.
  20. "La Marca del Hombre Lobo" (1968) released in the US as "Frankenstein's Bloody Terror". Waldermar Daninsky (Paul Naschy) turns into a wolf man for the first time in this moody well done horror film from Spain. The film lacks the nudity and blood of later movies in the series but it does have moody Gothic atmosphere. Naschy does make an athletic powerful monster. There is no Frankenstein in sight but there is thin effeminate vampire who shows up with his sexy wife. to battle the wolfman for the soul of his attractive friends. You can watch it for free on You Tube in a nice wide screen pr
  21. "The Curse of the Werwolf" (1961) one of Hammer films best looking productions. Oliver Reed gives a memorable performance as the young man doomed to become a monster. The werewolf make up is the stuff of nightmares. Terence Fisher directed this gothic fairy tale for adults filled with cruelty, sex, and blood. I can't wait for the new Scream Factory blu ray
  22. A new one from Latin America
  23. Paul Naschy plays a very masculine priest in "Exorcismo" (1975). He is very convincing as the priest who battles witch craft in this very serious copy of "The Exorcist". There are plenty of campy Euro horror touches- female nudity and groovy black mass /**** which look like an evening at the Playboy mansion. I found the film a bit predictable but there are a couple of decent scares and some effective make up. Naschy really had a bigger range than just a wolf man . You can watch it as part of Scream Factory's The Paul Naschy collection Volume 2
