  • House of Dreams

    House of Dreams

    Back in 2019, I stumbled on House of Dreams while looking for either 1960s regional horror movies, movies made in Indiana, or both. I had read the Bleeding Skull review long before, but had filed it away and mostly forgotten about it. Once it was back on my radar, I ended up buying the DVD from Alpha Video and was pretty floored--here was a completely independent horror feature production made in Indiana that had its premiere in September of 1963.…

    Red Roses of Passion


    Carla (Patricia McNaire) is tired of her prudish aunt and cousin cramping her style when she brings men home. A friend takes her to meet Martha (Helena Clayton), a fortune teller who runs an all-female cult that worships "the spirit of Pan" out of the back room of her storefront. Martha suggests a way for Carla to put Tracey (Laura London) and Julie (Bella Donna) in their place, and at first Carla is pleased with the results. Her aunt and…

    No New Kinda Story: The Real Story of Tooth & Nail Records

    Oh jeez, this thing has been out for 10 years and I still haven't gotten around to watching it. But if you're looking at this listing on Letterboxd you might be interested in checking out some 90s T&N concerts I posted on YouTube in the early days of the pandemic when I was transferring a ton of old VHS tapes to digital:

    Starflyer 59 - Upland, IN 1995
    Starflyer 59 - Evansville, IN 1995
    Morella's Forest - Evansville, IN 1995

    Bikini Hackers

    An almost unbelievably slapdash patchwork of sounds and moving images roughly gesturing in the direction of a narrative that does actually concern bikini-clad women who do hacking stuff. As much of a mess as it is, this is still leagues better than Bikini Inception. After watching this nonsense, I was too curious about how much of it was original footage and how much was stock footage or those blank "chat screens," so I investigated. Here are my findings.

    2025: The World Enslaved by a Virus


    "Communism is all over the place."

    This movie suggests the coronavirus pandemic is a worldwide globalist conspiracy to establish a One World Order where everyone must speak English, and Christianity, ice cream, and funerals are all outlawed. It does this mostly through endless scenes of people sitting around in a big room in a basement and just talking and talking and talking. There are long follow shots of people walking where the camera is set at ass level; after a…
