The summer movie season is officially over and the fall awards season has yet to kick into full gear, so we, as film fans, are stuck in a weird sort of limbo that consists of last month's leftovers and B grade schlock at the Cineplex this weekend. If you can't muster up the energy needed to see Vin Diesel in the Drive-In classic-to-be Riddick, you could instead crank up the AC, grab any beverage of choice, and select The Lords of Salem on Blu-ray or DVD. Even better, it's also available on VOD, which just takes a couple of clicks on the remote to enjoy!

Sad news from Spain. Legendary director Jesús Franco Manera, aka Jess Franco, aka Clifford Brown and a couple dozen more pseudonyms, often took from the names of the American jazz musicians he so admired, has died at the age of 82. Franco suffered a stroke last week from which he couldn’t recover.
His Erotic Rites Of Frankenstein featured a shrieking, silver-skinned Frankenstein’s monster relentlessly whipping a man and a woman tied together over a bed of spikes. It was but one of countless sublime images from the output of the most prolific Exploitation director of all-time (yes, that includes Corman). With a repertoire of over 200 titles, Franco enriched the world of Eurohorror/Exploitation by writing, directing, and scoring a vast variety of films, including masterpieces such as Female Vampire, Count Dracula, Faceless, Night Of The Bloody Judge, Eugenie De Sade, and Venus In Furs, an epic amount of art, »
