The Vampire’s Ghost

Is it a classic? Well, not exactly, but it’s also not a typical disappointing ’40s Z-picture. Screenwriter Leigh Brackett pens a nice twist on the Dracula motif, and actor John Abbott is genuinely impressive as what is surely the most low-key vampire on the books. Plus a sexy dance from Adele Mara!

7 TV shows with ‘wolf’ in the title that don’t feature a single wolf…until now

Louisa Mellor Sep 9, 2016

These 7 TV shows were making false wolf-related promises. With the help of Ms Paint and a lack of journalistic dignity, we fixed that…

Den Of Geek has no truck with the figurative. We cannot sanction its buffoonery. That is to say, if a TV show wants to use the word ‘wolf’ in its title, it had better feature a wolf.

It’s not as though it’s hard. A number of shows manage to deliver on their wolf-related promises. Teen Wolf. Wolfblood. Wolf’s Rain. Wolf Lake. She-Wolf Of London… they’re packed to the rafters with lupine glory. The shows that aren’t but profess to be in their titles need to take a long, hard look at themselves. Whoever they’re trying to impress with their wolflessness, it isn’t working.

That’s where we come in. Wolf Hall, Wolf Creek, Raised By Wolves, Airwolf,

Universal's Classic Monsters, 'Draft Day' and 'Night Moves' This Week On DVD & Blu-ray

Draft Day I guess the discussion before releasing Draft Day was whether or not to take advantage of the start of the NFL season with the theatrical release or the DVD and Blu-ray release and the home video marketing team won because clearly that's the reason for bringing it out today, but does anyone care at this pointc The movie is no good, especially for anyone with a passing understanding of, or interest in, the NFL.

Universal Classic Monsters: Complete 30-Film Collection I'm not sure what I think about this one. While it would be awesome to own all of these titles, why Universal decided to go DVD-only is beyond me. If someone is a big enough fan of Universal's Classic Monsters franchise aren't they going to want them all and be willing to pay for them all on Blu-rayc Is it the cost involved in restoring them all and

This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: February 2, 2010

DVD Links: DVD News | Release Dates | New Dvds | Reviews | RSS Feed

Zombieland I presume this will be the one film most people rush out to buy, and it is indeed an entertaining movie, but I can't say I am all that interested in revisiting it. The House of the Devil I don't know what it is about this film that scared anyone, but outside of a single gunshot I was bored out of my mind for an hour and then watched as director Ti West rushed the ending. You can read my short theatrical review here, but I can't recommend you buy this one.

However, I will point out the pic at the bottom of the image to the left is of a DVD/VHS combo set. Who is going to buy that? Is that just an attempt to try and sell this as a legit throwback film? Anyone planning

DVD Releases: Feb. 2, 2010: Spiral Down into the Triangle of Zombieland

There's a wide range of excellent films hitting home video this week from the exceptionally fun time to be had in Zombieland to the super creepy (and authentic feeling) The House of the Devil to two werewolf-themed entries: The Wolf Man (Special Edition, Universal Legacy Series) and the complete She-Wolf of London series.

If you're a fan of the Hellboy series and have the tech, you won't want to miss out on the animated Blu-ray twin pack of Sword of Storms and Blood & Iron. Or maybe mind-fuck movies are more your thing, in which case you're really in luck this week as Spiral hits Blu-ray and Triangle comes out in three different versions for you to choose from.

It was tough to decide on a pick of the week so I'm going with two this time: The House of the Devil and Triangle. You really can't go wrong with either,

"Dracula's Daughter" Hangs With The "She-Wolf Of London"

  • SneakPeek
"Dracula's Daughter" is the 1936 Universal vampire sequel to Bela Lugosi's classic 1931 feature "Dracula".

Directed by Lambert Hillyer from a screenplay by Garrett Fort, "Daughter" stars Otto Kruger, Gloria Holden, Marguerite Churchill and Edward Van Sloan.

Based on author Bram Stoker's story "Dracula's Guest", the film begins where "Dracula" ends, with the 'Count' destroyed by 'Professor Von Helsing' (Van Sloan).

Von Helsing is immediately arrested by the police and escorted to Scotland Yard, where he confesses to destroying Count Dracula, but because the vampire had already been dead for over 500 years, it could not be considered murder.

Van Helsing enlists the aid of psychiatrist 'Dr. Jeffrey Garth' (Otto Kruger), once one of his star students, while Dracula's daughter, 'Countess Marya Zaleska' (Gloria Holden), with the aid of her manservant,' Sandor' (Irving Pichel), steals Dracula’s body from Scotland Yard and ritualistically burns the fiend's body, hoping to break
