reviewed Lifeforce. October 31, 2013
Lifeforce
Oh, good gravy!  In the summer of 1985, I was the type of hungry movie goer that normally would’ve flocked to something that looked like LIFEFORCE.  I couldn’t tell you why I didn’t – I honestly don’t recall any specific reason – but I do remember asking a friend of mine who had taken a date of his to go and see it.  “It really isn’t any …

Movie poster
I came across a copy of this film in my library and as it had a cast of Bela Lugosi, Lionel Barrymore and Lionel Atwell, I thought I would give it a shot.  The first thing I noticed was that this film was from MGM and not Universal so already there were some differences in the quality (this movie seemed a lot more "campy" than the Universal classics).  The movie starts out with …

One aspect of the vampire legend is the one-time scourge of the European world, the Mongols. The legend of the centaur comes from the Mongols on horseback and when food was short a Mongol soldier would …

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
The Blu-Ray is excellent coming with all kinds of special features. My favorite being the making of which goes into great detail about everything involving the film. Then of course the commentary by the writer is very interesting. There is much more that only make this release a must have for film buffs who enjoy the behind the scenes stuff.

            ABRAHAM LINCOLN   VAMPIRE HUNTER      Abraham Lincoln, what can be said about this man that hasn't already been said before? Wait I know, he has battled Vampires and Zombies for most of his life, its fact. I guess you dear reader had no idea about that did you? No you didn't, because it is one of the many government …

Marvel Anime: Blade- Season One
Marvel comics and Japanese anime have been two of my favorite entertainment mediums. So It was a good bet that I would be checking out any production that would combine the two. I enjoyed the anime series “X-Men” and had mixed feelings about the “Iron Man” anime series. My expectations have been tempered with director Mitsuyuki Masuhara’s “Blade the anime series. …

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
When young Abraham Lincoln angers a man (who happens to a vampire), the man takes his revenge by killing the boy's mother. Lincoln then dedicates his life to finding vampires and killing them with his silver-tipped ax.      I really enjoyed this movie. Yes, it's horrifically gory at times, but the clever mix of fantasy and true events is very well done and I couldn't …

Hellsing Ultimate Vol. 5-8 Collection
True, when I reviewed the first 4 volumes of “Hellsing Ultimate” (click on link to see review) last week, I really wasn’t sure where and how it was going. There was a lot of foreshadowing as to the origins of Alucard and I questioned as to how everything would wrap itself up. The last episode of the first collection ended with a scene that showed the forces of the Major about to …

Dracula A.D. 1972
Quoth Christopher Lee:   "I stopped appearing as Dracula in 1972 because in my opinion the presentation of the character had deteriorated to such an extent, particularly bringing him into the contemporary day and age, that it really no longer had any meaning." Not so - that indefatigable lead portrayed the iconic bloodsucker twice thereafter: a final engagement with perennial …

The Fearless Vampire Killers
Months ere Robert Evans lured him to the New World to collaborate with aging B-lord William Castle in production of his breakthrough horror classic, Roman Polanski somehow cajoled Filmways and Cadre to bankroll this charming, deranged, visually sumptuous pasquinade of vampire flicks. Requisite dapper, diabolical, debonaire Count Krolock (Ferdy Mayne) is the film's sole straight man, foil to every …

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Nothing so intrinsically silly ought be presented in as humorless a manner as that of Timor Bekmambetov's latest waste of film, an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's amusing revisionist novel. Scarcely any of the author's droll wit is preserved in transition; this movie is exciting as an extravaganza of stylized combat, yet divested of its source material's facetious character, ultimately …

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
The summer movie season can be home to plenty of whimsical, often ridiculous premises for movies. We’ve seen movies based on comic books, toy lines, and most recently, board games. “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” continues the trend with one of the most laughable titles I’ve ever read, let alone the absurd premise of the film that pits our 16th president against a horde …

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Near the end of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, there is a scene that explains for me the ultimate message of Abraham Lincoln:  offered the tainted immortality of vampirism to use to fight for good for eternity, Lincoln deflects the suggestion with his legendary wisdom and humor without giving a second thought to the offer.  For those who may be horrified by a generation of young people …

** out of ****    Honest Abe himself tells us early on in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" that one very significant portion of his life will not be remembered throughout American history. The premise for the film is that he lived a double life as a slayer of vamps; a side-job that started at an early age when his mother's life was taken by one named Jack Barts. This was mere …
