It’s hot Barbara-on-Barbara action as Barbara Stanwyck and Barbara Parkins co-star in A TASTE OF EVIL! It’s psychological horror by way of Aaron Spelling, which means yes — both Barbaras seem to understand they’re in a made-for-TV version of the psychobiddy genre. Journalist Jeremy Kinser joins Sam to revel in […]

Pilgrim buckles have never looked creepier than in this 1970 thriller starring Hope Lange and Paul Burke.

Can the pilot for a failed detective series be turned into a successful standalone feature? Why do you think they filmed this on location in Monterey? Could there be a less interesting name for a leading male character than Norliss? Didn’t Angie Dickinson have something better to do? Why are […]

What if Rosemary’s Baby but with Shelley Winters and also the movie gives away a central plot point in the title? THE DEVIL’S DAUGHTER features Belinda Montgomery, Robert Foxworth and Diane Ladd, with a script by the writer of Harold & Maude and 9 to 5. And that might seem […]
