    Devils of Darkness

    ★★★★

    If I didn’t know any better, I would have sworn this was a Hammer production based on a Dennis Wheatley novel. Negative on both. 

    Quaint little 60’s hybrid vampire/satanic cult flick that deserves a higher score than the public at large has given it credit. Well made, hip and jazzy goth vibe with some real nice cinematic shots thrown in every so often. I would love to see a remastered HD release with its vibrant colors highlighted properly, especially all the scenes with those red cloaks!

    ★★½

    Italians were the masters at taking George Miller’s vision and cheapening it ten fold, over and over again. This is one of many. 

    The search for the last fertile woman in a post apocalyptic world to rebuild humanity, includes George Eastman playing Big Ape. A decent budgeted exploitive cheapie engulfed in bad acting, bad dubbing, bad music and plenty of lackluster action sequences. It doesn’t disappoint.

    I dread the day I will have seen all I can from Fernando Di Leo. Discovering his pictures is one of my greatest pleasures right now.

    Gastone Moschin comes off as a thuggish Steve McQueen in a story about missing money, criminals, police, a mysterious white scarfed figure, J&B, and the Americano

    “I understand a bank robbery. But fucking with the Americano is wrong!”

    The plot plods and as pieces fall into place the fun factor increases. And this goes…

    ★★★½

    It went from I should rewatch Pulse, to have I ever watched Pulse before?, and eventually I’ve never seen Pulse! I had it confused with The Signal.

    Pulse  - It doesn’t get any more late 80’s PG-13 mediocre horror than this. 

    Electricity is the monster here and I’ll admit I honestly enjoyed it. Nothing to write home about, a popcorn and soda kinda flick you don’t bother turning down the lights to watch.
