Remember those days before home video when going to the movies was an event? When you always got two movies for the same admission price, plus those cool previews of movies to come? Whether at the drive-in or the sleazy theater with the sticky floors, if was a full evening's entertainment. And wasn't it all the more cool when it was two B horror films? Written by
HORROR GRINDSHOW DOUBLE FEATURE A Ron Ford & Mac Cobb flick. With Jackson Bostwick & Wes Deitrick
This a obvious labor of love and something for all-genre video geeks to eat up ! Okay, Lets get the mean comments out of the way These 2 films are totally different by accident or on purpose, First one (Twist Of A Vampire) comes off as nostalgic and something from a kindler-gentler era, Second( The Road) is gritty-vicious and takes no prisoners. Do these films jell together , NO, But they are entertaining and at a theatre one would warn parents that violence goes from pg13 to R, Almost building to climax of gore. ( Ed.note- Hey in "Grindhouse",Death Proof and Planet Terror didn't jive either, Hmm.)
"Twist" has some tributes to Darren McGavin, A death scene from Dark Shadows and a nice surprise ending.
"Road" has very scary moments and some awesome effects with headless, dismembering and ooze.
Stars: Jackson Bostwick ( TV's Captain Marvel & TRON),Ron Ford ( TIKI) and Wes Deitrick( Home Of The Brave) are used well and enjoyed the witty scripts. To add to The 'Grind House' genre, There are trailers for Crawling Brain/Paint Drying: The Movie/Hollywood Mortuary and Ho Ho Homicidal.
Extras include: Trailer and interviews, Hey how can you interview Mac Cobb( Nasty S. O.B.) and not Jackson Bostwick ?
