While fans of Scream Factory can typically rejoice in their continual output of cult and fan-favorites, every once in a while the Sf gang put out a genre film that has either been long lost or forgotten about and it switches things up for the better. We all want to have great collector’s editions of They Live, Prince Of Darkness, Candyman 2 and various other titles, but when the Scream Factory crew put out films like The Legend Of Hell House or The Vampire Lovers, we, as horror fans, are blessed with classic horror films brought to HD life, and with interesting and thoroughly entertaining special features.

Not only is the film a great addition to any Scream Factory collector’s library, it’s a perfect addition to Any film library. »

The title suggests a feminist take on the Robert Louis Stevenson story but director Roy Ward Baker’s 1971 thriller turns out to be a Victorian version of Roger Corman’s "The Wasp Woman." Poker-faced Ralph Bates stars as Dr. Jekyll who feeds on the blood of young women in order to transform into “Mrs.” Hyde, embodied by the intensely alluring Martine Beswicke. Brian Clemen’s ambitious script makes room for appearances by real-life ghouls Burke and Hare and even Jack the Ripper figures into the complex plot. »

So the phone rings, and I answer it, and it's Mel Brooks. That's an actual thing that happened. That's now something I can say. And even better, the 40 minute conversation that followed me answering the phone is one of my favorites in recent memory. How often do you get to talk to a comedy legend about one of the pinnacle moments of not only their career, but of film comedy in general? I was told I'd have about 15 minutes originally. Time was tight. And if you get offered 15 minutes to talk to Mel Brooks about "Blazing Saddles," you take it, right? We ended up having a really fun back and forth about that film, about films he's produced, about his partnership with Gene Wilder, and about the ways Hollywood failed the great Richard Pryor.
