I duke it out with Duke

An enthusiastic cast populates the comedy Billie, and their energy almost makes up for the fact that the script they are working with isn’t all that funny. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

“Amityville: The Awakening” Hits Snooze Again; Rolls Over and Goes Back to Sleep

THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: In what’s got to be the most frustrating piece of B-movie news in a long time, it’s been announced that the new (if a movie that’s been sitting on the shelf since late 2014 can be called “new”) Amityville movie has been pulled from release yet again. It was […]

The real mafia

A downbeat but compelling look into society’s criminal underbelly, The Nickel Ride is a drama that is ripe for rediscovery. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

I can’t quite put my finger on it…

. Before we get started, I would just like to say that INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING SUCKS. And now, our feature presentation—... THE CREEPING FLESH (1973) …finds Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee playing half-brothers, both scientists: the latter the head of a mental hospital, who finds in his patients an excellent source of experimental […]

An “A” list B movie

Everybody in front of and behind the camera in Red Sun Rising obviously worked very hard, and the result is a solid actioner. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

Full house

You are probably asking: If House Of The Long Shadows has in its cast John Carradine, Peter Cushing, Vincent Price, and Christopher Lee, why is it so obscure? Well, the four stars are in fine shape, but the rest of the movie… Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

The abominable human beings

. THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN (1957) This Hammer science-fiction outing is about a scientist who joins an expedition searching for the legendary Yeti, and ends up finding a lot more than he expected… Scripted by Nigel Kneale, this low-key, thoughtful drama has much to say about Mankind’s place in the world and his claims to be […]

Gangsters, Dinosaurs, and Naked Girls

A trio of updates. NAKED GIRL KILLED IN THE PARK Guest writer Miguel Rodriguez says, “After some scenes of seduction and intrigue, Chris manages to get invited to a quiet weekend at the family villa in the country. It becomes clear that the set pieces of the amusement park and now the Spanish villa are […]

Wanna see Dennis Weaver get seduced?

While Cocaine: One Man’s Seduction has both some unintended laughs and some effective serious moments, the movie doesn’t work overall either as an exercise in camp or as an effective portrayal of the dangers of drugs. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

An Abnormal Amount of the New or at Least Recent

Although I did revert to form a little at the last minute by reviewing a Jesus Franco film:   The Belko Experiment (2017), in which unseen puppetmasters incite an epidemic of mass murder in a corporate office building… Europa Report (2013), in which astronauts searching for life on Jupiter’s coolest moon find what they’re looking […]

Dark Purpose

One more! DARK PURPOSE George Sanders (who seems to just be playing Noel Coward) and Shirley Jones are an art assessor and his assistant who have come to the villa of Italian nobleman Count Paolo Barbarelli to take stock of his art collection. While at his secluded estate outside of Salerno, they discover that aside from the count […]

Bollywood Giallo Dance-Off

The latest action. GUMNAAM The Bollywood thriller Gumnaam isn’t shy about the sort of films that have influenced it. Adopting the sort of jet set internationality of the 1960s, it becomes an amalgamation of old-fashioned “old dark house” murder mysteries and pop-art modernism filtered through the lens of films like Arabesque, the James Bond franchise, […]

The gentle face of horror

Born in 1913, Peter Wilton Cushing graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and began his acting career doing repertory theatre. He was in his mid-twenties when he made his first foray into Hollywood, making his film debut in 1939’s The Man With The Iron Mask—playing the back of Louis Hayward’s head. Several […]

High class horror

Although Society isn’t a perfect movie, it is almost certainly quite unlike any movie you’ve seen before. Especially its unforgettable ending. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

It crashes

Normally I applaud when any movie gets released on Blu-ray, but the recent announcement that Windows will be released on that format leaves me utterly bewildered. Is there really an audience for this? Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

Xtro, Xtro! Read all about it!

Though it contains plenty of weirdness like a woman giving birth to a fully grown man, Xtro ultimately fails due to a script that contains both little story and little believable behavior by its characters. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

Fish ‘n’ Boots

Giallo month has been fun enough that we’re keepin’ the sleaze going. DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS Ercoli made the scene in 1970 with his slick debut film, The Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion and followed it up in 1971 with Death Walks On High Heels. These two films, along with Ercoli’s Death Walks at Midnight (1972), form a trilogy […]

A Hatchet for Fantomas

HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON Guest writer Carol Borden delves into the psyche of Mario Bava’s bizarre supernatural giallo about a man who is haunted by the ghost of the wife he murdered. The problem, however, is that everyone but him can see her. Well, that’s one problem. Hatchet for the Honeymoon is not the kind […]

Kids’ stuff

There are enough reasons to explain why you’ve probably never heard of Kid Colter, a family movie that lacks enough spark to engage kids or their parents. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.

I Forgot Fantomas and Irma Vep

Somehow, that somehow being my own lack of concentration, I neglected to post parts three and five of IL FAIT PEUR here. No big deal. They only cover the two main reasons I wrote the entire series, so… An Ungentlemanly Thief Louis Feuillade’s Fantômas was an adaptation of a series of novel that took the […]
