ELEVEN MORE BAD MOVIE CLASSICS FOR HALLOWEEN

Return of Dr X

Return of Dr X

My month-long celebration of Halloween continues! Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are very familiar with my Bad Movie page where I examine plenty of under the radar movies that are hilariously awful. Previously I ran a list of the top Eleven Neglected Bad Movie Classics for Halloween. That was such a hit here is a list of eleven more neglected bombs. My Bad Movie page features full-length reviews of each of the movies I’m offering a synopsis of here.

THE RETURN OF DR X (1939) – The notorious film in which the legendary Humphrey Bogart played a zombified mad scientist named Dr Xavier who was brought back from the dead by another mad scientist named Dr Flegg. Much of the fun comes from Bogie’s unmistakable disdain for finding himself in the kind of stinker that Bela Lugosi often waded through. Bogie’s Dr X kills Continue reading

ELEVEN MORE NEGLECTED BAD MOVIES FOR HALLOWEEN

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are very familiar with my Bad Movie page where I examine plenty of under the radar movies that are hilariously awful. Last Halloween season I ran a list of the top Eleven Neglected Bad Movie Classics for Halloween. That tradition continues this year with a list of eleven more neglected bombs. As with last year’s list my Bad Movie page features full-length reviews of each of the movies I’m offering a synopsis of here.

THE RETURN OF DR X (1939) – The notorious film in which the legendary Humphrey Bogart played a zombified mad scientist named Dr Xavier who was brought back from the dead by another mad scientist named Dr Flegg. Much of the fun comes from Bogie’s unmistakable disdain for finding himself in the kind of stinker that Bela Lugosi often waded through. Bogie’s Dr X kills bunny rabbits, surgically drains blood from the hearts of living humans and experiments on babies in a movie desperately searching for a decent script and a likeable character.

DIAL HELP (1988) – Believe it or not Ruggiero Deodato directed this ridiculous horror film. A plucky heroine who has just been dumped by her boyfriend finds herself being haunted by … living phones. No I’m not kidding. These phones kill by strangling people with their cords, using high-pitched noises to Continue reading

BAD MOVIE PAGE: THE BABY (1973)

 The encore presentation of my review of the 70’s cult horror bomb The Baby, originally from 2010, is up now at Man In Black Reviews.

THE BABY (1973) – Category: The 70’s version of camp, with a premise and plot elements that would have been banned in previous decades.       It’s hard to believe Ted Post was involved with this strange movie. It was considered very weird and kinky even in the 1970’s when it came out, and that was long before the internet made the entire world aware of the infantilism fetish that this film reeks of! “Baby” himself redefines the expression “arrested development”, since he’s a full-grown adult who crawls around in a diaper (which needs changing occassionally – all together now – Eeewwwww!), sleeps in a big crib, eats baby food and Continue reading

BAD MOVIE PAGE: THE BABY (1973)

The Baby 1973THE BABY (1973) – Category: The 70′s version of camp, with a premise and plot elements that would have been banned in previous decades.      

It’s hard to believe Ted Post was involved with this strange movie. It was considered very weird and kinky even in the 1970′s when it came out, and that was long before the internet made the entire world aware of the infantilism fetish that this film reeks of!

“Baby” himself redefines the expression “arrested development”, since he’s a full-grown adult who crawls around in a diaper (which needs changing occassionally – EEEWWWW), sleeps in a big crib, eats baby food and doesn’t speak. And by the way, it’s a horror film
