Crawford herself made a couple of movies for William Castle, Bette Davis appeared in a pair of Hammer movies, and others were busy elsewhere. Aldrich's own followup, 'Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte,' also with Davis, likewise did big business, so he produced -- but did not direct -- 'Whatever Happened to Aunt Alice?'

This movie plunges into a dark and twisted world that's unrelieved by anything. Anne Rice followed her initial novel with several sequels, and developed a tremendous following. The novel sold to movies early, but took a long time to find its way to the screen. When Tom Cruise was first announced as the vampire Lestat, a character deeply loved by Rice's readers, there was outrage around the world, carried everywhere by the internet. Even Rice herself protested, but it turned out that Cruise isn't just excellent; it was his best performance until that time.

title: Deadlock 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: Leo Films MPAA rating: PG starring: Aaron Hendry, Michelle Beauchamp, Timothy L. Trujillo, Anthony de Longis release year: 2000 film rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Films just don’t come much more independently made than "Deadlock" – except for those that never see the light of video release. The film is a horror parody that has a bit of mythological inventiveness going for it. It is sometimes amusing, though almost never frightening – although a nightmare sequence in Chapter 9 has some strong creepy imagery. Primarily, it’s an illustration that it’s possible to create respectable optical bangs with virtually no bucks.

title: The Blood Spattered Bride 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: Anchor Bay MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Simon Andreu, Maribel Martin, Alexandra Bastedo, Dean Selmier, Rosa Rodriguez, Monsterrat Julia, Angel Lombarte release year: 1972 film rating: Three and a half stars (Four if you love horror) sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Although Dracula is hands-down the most frequently-filmed vampire story, J. Sheridan Le Fanu's "Carmilla" has been the source of a surprising number of horror movies. Dreyer's 'Vampyr' is allegedly based on the story; 'Blood and Roses,' 'Crypt of Terror,' 'The Vampire Lovers' (and its sequels) and the TV movie actually called 'Carmilla' all have the Le Fanu novella as their basis. And so does 'The Blood Spattered Bride,' an unexpectedly intelligent and psychologically rich Spanish thriller, written and directed by Vicente Aranda. Until the awkward, incomplete-feeling ending, it's sexy, scary and smart. Susan (Maribel Martin), still in her bridal gown, is traveling with her husband (Simon Andreu, whose role name is never given) to his ...

title: Don't Torture A Duckling 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Tomas Milian, Barbara Bouchet, Florinda Bolkan, Irene Papas, Marc Porel, George Wilson, Vito Passeri release year: 1972 film rating: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren The late Italian director Lucio Fulci has been lionized in recent years primarily because of the extreme violence and gore of his horror movies. It's so strong that even those with a general tolerance for such material can be repelled by what Fulci chose to put on the screen -- particularly in the American cuts of his films, which usually have little to offer other than the extreme gore (and generally fine cinematography, a common trait of the Italian brand of "Eurohorror").
