title: The Exorcist 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: R starring: Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller, Max Von Sydow, Linda Blair release year: 1973 film rating: Five stars sound/picture: Four stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘The Exorcist’ is one of those rare, seminal films that, even stripped of its shock and novelty value, is just as effective now as it was upon release. It’s extremely difficult to envision anyone making this film now. This is because it is just about impossible to imagine present-day pop culture in general and horror cinema in particular without a quarter-century of ‘The Exorcist’ influencing what followed.

title: DAY OF THE 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(); studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: unrated starring: Lori Cardille, Terry Alexander, Joseph Pilato, Jarlath Conroy, Antone DiLeo, Richard Liberty, Howard Sherman, Gary Howard Klar release year: 1985 film rating: Two Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren When he made the precedent-shattering Night of the Living Dead, George Romero had no idea that he'd return twice more to a world increasingly dominated by the walking dead, corpses that eat the living. He'd been inspired by Richard Matheson's novel I Am Legend and the (first) inadequate movie based on it, The Last Man on Earth. When Night of the Living Dead became a worldwide hit, even a cult sensation, and sequels seemed to be in order, Romero decided to follow Matheson's lead, and gradually suggest that even if the human race as we know it is dying off, perhaps a new kind of civilization will rise in its place.

title: The Satanic Rites Of Dracula 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Michael Coles, William Franklyn, Freddie Jones, Joanna Lumley, Richard Vernon. release year: 1973 film rating: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren With Dracula A.D. 1972, Hammer Films brought Count Dracula into the 1970s, but severed the links with their earlier Dracula series -- A.D. 1972 played as though none of the earlier films even existed, although Christopher Lee again played Dracula, and Peter Cushing his nemesis, Dr. Van Helsing. The Satanic Rites of Dracula was the only real sequel to A.D. 72, but it's considerably better.

title: Dracula: Prince Of Darkness 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: Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, Andrew Keir, Francis Matthews, Suzan Farmer release year: 1966 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren This exciting horror thriller was the second to star Christopher Lee as Count Dracula, the vampire king (he played a vampire in the Italian comedy Uncle Was a Vampire, but he wasn't Dracula). Excellent photography and a convincing cast, plus an exciting climax are offset somewhat by a script so peculiarly structured that Dracula doesn't even appear until 48 minutes into the movie.

title: Invasion Of The Body Snatchers 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 starring: Gabrielle Anwar, Terry Kinney, Billy Wirth, Forest Whitaker, Meg Tilly release year: 1993 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein The third screen version of Jack Finney’s thought-provoking and creepy novel, ‘Body Snatchers’ is dark and unsettling, retaining the claustrophobic terror of the two earlier editions while adding a few original eerie touches. The film also arguably represents the most readily accessible work from director Abel Ferrara.
