  • The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)

    The classic Universal creature features of the 1930s and 40s served as my entry point into horror cinema.  Filmed in black and white, the films oozed atmosphere, but they never featured anything truly terrifying that my six year-old self couldn’t handle.  The monsters were slow-witted and lumbering, but even...

    Scream Factory has announced a Collector’s Edition of George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead (2005), the film that ushered in Romero’s second wave of zombie flicks.  Land captures the humor, social satire, and sense of dread of Romero’s earlier Dead movies, so it is easily a “must own.” Here’s the full...
