title: The Return Of The Living Dead function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: MGM Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Clu Gulager, James Karen, Don Calfa, Thom Mathews, Beverly Randolph, Jewel Shepard, Linnea Quigley, John Philbin release year: 1985 film rating: Three-and-a-half stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren After "Night of the Living Dead," director George Romero and producer John Russo ended their partnership. Romero had the right to make movies about the walking dead, but couldn't use the term "living dead" in the title. Russo, too, could make movies about the walking dead, but could use the phrase. He wrote a script that was a direct sequel to "Night of the Living Dead," but couldn't get financing. It went through several hands, finally getting a page-one rewrite by Dan O'Bannon, still hot from "Alien." O'Bannon had wanted to turn director, and this sequel-but-not-really was his best opportunity.

title: The Revenge Of Frankenstein function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Columbia/Tristar Home Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Peter Cushing, Francis Matthews, Eunice Gayson, Michael Gwynn, Richard Wordsworth, Oscar Quitak, Lionel Jeffries, John Welsh release year: 1958 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren This first sequel to "The Curse of Frankenstein" reunites director Terence Fisher and lead Peter Cushing (as Victor Frankenstein); Jimmy Sangster is also aboard, credited as the sole screenwriter. As usual, this Hammer film is in vivid color, and is distinctly more gruesome than its predecessor, although by today's standards, it's fairly tame. But in 1958, it was a wowser.

title: Session 9 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: USA Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Peter Mullan, David Caruso, Stephen Gevedon, Josh Lucas, Brendan Sexton III release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "Session 9" is a low-budget horror film that increasingly scares the whump out of you as it progresses. Director Brad Anderson and his co-writer Stephen Gevedon explain in the audio commentary – also in the generous two-page liner notes – that they lucked into discovering the mother of all locations, an actual closed-down mental hospital in Massachusetts. The sprawling buildings look haunted even from the outside – the potential for terror is ripe, and the filmmakers employ it expertly.

title: Them function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn, Joan Weldon, James Arness, Onslow Stevens, Sean McClory, Sandy Descher, Fess Parker, Olin Howlin release year: 1954 film rating: Four-and-a-half Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren "Them!" became an instant classic when first released in 1954; it was Warner Bros.' highest-grossing movie for the year, and instantly established giant bugs as a suitable science fiction menace for later 1950s movies. Many of those slavishly imitated elements originated by "Them!", including a mystery plot structure -- what IS the strange menace? -- which is a little silly when your movie is called, for example, "The Black Scorpion" or "The Deadly Mantis."

title: The Devil's Backbone function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Columbia/TriStar Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Fernando Tielve, Eduardo Noriega, Marisa Paredes, Federico Luppi release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Beautiful, potent and truly creepy, “The Devil’s Backbone” is one of those rare horror films that really does have more on its mind than simply scaring us, although it accomplishes this with ease. It brings together elements of movies as diverse as “The Haunting,” “Lord of the Flies” and “Land and Freedom” to produce something that feels fresh and original.
