horror movie rentals of the week
Last night I headed out to a different branch of the local non-Blockbuster video store, and was pleased to discover that they had a much more robust horror selection (including, to my great surprise, a copy of the fabled Italian gore flick Make Them Die Slowly, AKA Cannibal Ferox; reviews at Teleport City, ZombieKeeper, and The Cold Spot. I aim to pick that puppy up next week. Unfortunately, their copy of Evil Dead 2 was out...). I was able to grab a couple of movies I've had a hankering to watch this Halloween season. As usualy, I tried to strike a balance between favorite films and new experiences. Here are this week's picks:
- The Invisible Man
- The Roger Corman-produced Carnosaur (Which I've only caught snippets of on cable)
- The Dead Don't Die (Inspired by a review at Cold Fusion's first Month of the Living Dead)
- Phantasm (Which, strangely enough, I've never seen.)
I'll note my impressions of these films as I watch them.
