Unlike bad comedy, which tries to be funny and isn’t, bad horror is generally pretty amusing and therefore entertaining. “The Mangler” is a rather curious entry in this respect – it is a solidly bad movie that, despite an outrageously silly premise and a fair amount of scenery-chewing, manages to not be much fun. Having said that, it still provides some kicks for both gore hounds and connoisseurs of self-aware schlock.

And became the most significant British SF writer of the 1950s, with titles such as Day of the Triffids, Out of the Deeps, The Chrysalids and The Midwich Cuckoos. The latter was sold to the movies even before Wyndham had finished writing it—pages ...

Warren, Duncan Lamont, Michael Ripper, Harry Locke. director: Freddie Francis film release year: 1973 DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren By the early 1970s, the great boom in British horror movies that started in the late 1950s and thundered along through the 1960s was running out of steam; “The Creeping Flesh” is a last gasp. Like many of the best British horror movies of this period, and a few of the worst, the movie costars Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. However, by this time, Lee seems to have been regarded the bigger appeal, as he is given top billing, even though both Cushing and Lorna Heilbron have larger roles. The movie was directed by Freddie Francis; he’s one of the greatest cinematographers in movie history, but what he really wanted to do was direct. Unfortunately, ...

Weiss release year: 2001 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half stars reviewed by: Mel Odom "Bones" bursts into the home theater with a throbbing basso beat from the subwoofer on a surround sound system, as a man runs through the night-shrouded street. Obvious fear motivates the guy, stoking the viewer’s interest immediately. A thudding heartbeat later, the camera pans to a building that looks like a skull, window eyes dormant with vacancy but shadowed with dark purpose. The building sits alone in the darkness, and the viewer can’t help but feel the weight of the structure. Then a hound with hellish red eyes races from the night, chasing after the man. The story proceeds for a time, sleek and streamlined as a sniper’s bullet. The movie’s subject matter and storytelling chooses directness over subtlety. "Bones" is a horror story ...

They spent time on 'Millennium' as well, but always wanted to get into feature films. 'Final Destination,' shot under the title "Flight 180," is their first, and they didn't get far from 'The X Files.' Not only was this well-made movie shot in Vancouver, where 'The X Files' was filmed until the 1999-2000 season, and uses some of the same crew, but Jeffrey Reddick's story began as a spec script for the TV series.
