Some creepy, campy 70's horror fun!
4 November 2004 | by (Hollywood, Cali) – See all my reviews

When I was a kid I'd stay up late and watch creature features. I think that was a major influence on my tastes. This movie terrified me when I was 7 yrs old. Now I'm 30 and I love it!

I couldn't remember the name or find it. About a yr and a half ago I got this one on DVD. YES!!! Not quite as scary but just some good fun. This is a rare, good treat if your a horror geek. If you like Blackula, Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things, or Carpenter and Romero, then I definitely recommend this one. Also the DVD has a decent commentary.

This one's more for nostalgia, but also for collectors too. The 70's are alive and well in Deathmaster!
