Big E's “Bad” Movies That Hurt So Good: “Curse Of The Black Widow” (1977, TV Movie)

“If a movie makes you happy, for whatever reason, then it’s a good movie.”

—Big E

*******Warning: Review Contains Spoilers*******

By Ernie Magnotta  

If there’s one thing I love, it’s 1970s made-for-tv horror films. I remember sitting in front of the television as a kid and watching a plethora of films such as Gargoyles, Bad Ronald, Satan’s School for Girls, Horror at 37,000 Feet, Devil Dog: Hound of Hell, Scream Pretty Peggy, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Moon of the Wolf and The Initiation of Sarah just to name a few. Some of those are better than others, but all were fun.

When I think back, there have been some legendary names associated with small screen horrors. Genre masters John Carpenter (Halloween), Steven Spielberg (Jaws), Wes Craven (Nightmare on Elm Street), Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Joseph Stefano (Psycho) all took shots at television »

Ten Best: Unforgettable Dracula Performances

1 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Horror cinema has a long tradition of creating iconic characters and none more so than those borne in the early days of the genre: characters such as Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and, of course, Dracula – the king of horror. A character who, despite his many cinematic deaths, always returns to the silver screen for one more bite of flesh… As he does this week in Dracula Untold, which features Luke Evans as the evil Vlad Tepes.

With that in mind we thought we’d rundown the ten best unforgettable Dracula performances in cinema. Check them out below and let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree!

Christopher LeeDracula (1958)

Someone Has a Bone to Pick With Dan Curtis' Dracula

27 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Sometimes in this business we end up writing our own synopses for films. The good folks over at VideoETA have done so for Dan ("Dark Shadows") Curtis and Dan Curtis' Dracula, and it's pretty... well... see for yourself!

"This version of the Transylvanian count talks more and is ugly to boot; Van Helsing gets him."

We hereby nominate VideoETA to write all synopses from here on out.

Official Synopsis

Academy Award winner Jack Palance stars in this terrifying adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic vampire novel Dracula, written for the screen by sci-fi/horror master Richard Matheson ("The Twilight Zone," I Am Legend, Duel) and produced by the legendary Dan Curtis ("Dark Shadows," Trilogy of Terror, The Winds of War).

Palance (City Slickers, Batman, Shane, Contempt) is Count Dracula, whose centuries-old existence is threatened after he attacks the lovely Lucy Westenra (Fiona Lewis; Dr. Phibes Rises Again), and her fiance (Simon Ward; "The Tudors, »

The Nostalgia Files: ‘Innerspace’ (1987)

11 May 2014 9:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Innerspace

Written by Chip Proser and Jeffrey Boam

Directed by Joe Dante

USA, 1987

Science fiction is a genre in which anything is possible. Films in particular take advantage of this opportunity to transport its audience to new worlds and new ideas. In 1987, director Joe Dante and executive producer Steven Spielberg took us on a “big” adventure with the zany sci-fi comedy Innerspace. The film stars Martin Short, Dennis Quaid, and a young Meg Ryan, who all get involved with a scientific mission gone wrong. With an Oscar win for Best Visual Effects and a comic tone full of energy and fun, Innerspace is one ride from the 80s you might want to check out.

Lt. Tuck Pendleton (Quaid) is a brash Navy pilot who isn’t exactly looked upon as a military hero. He drinks, he fights, and he’s actually kind of a douche. His fellow pilots want nothing »
