      It would’ve been great if Christopher Lee played the vampire in Once Bitten (1985) starring Jim Carrey…

      Or if Christopher Lee had a role in American Gothic (1988)…

      You should review both of those films!

    This year is a nice mixture of movies I’ve seen and older movies I’ve never even heard of. Makes me feel like my Halloween horror load has doubled this year.

    Now I want you to review The Fog.

    Holy Shit! this looks amazing! gonna have to find it…

    btw, James, have you seen Frankenweenie (2012); I just saw it today and thought you would probably love it. Pretty Great story, amazing stop motion, and TONS of awesome references to the CLAssics!

    Also, Monster Madness has been outstanding this year thus far; im glad you brought Mike in on some videos.

    keep up the awesome work! Happy Halloween!!!

      Also you should make another movie like The Deader The Better!
      horror comedy
      That would be amazing!

    Interesting movie. I like finding out where Rob Zombie gets some of his sound bites from. Like another Christopher Lee line in To The Devil A Daughter “This is not heresy, and I shall not repent!”

    Only four days of October left,
    Monster Madness is always over too soon.

  • October 27, 2015 at 7:30 am

    So, um… How many fog machines you got? And why aren’t they used more often (like the times you two are talking about a movie)?

  • October 27, 2015 at 8:50 am

    Wow, the atmosphere and just the entire look and feel of the movie is magnificent! I gotta see this one before Halloween is over.

  • October 27, 2015 at 9:34 am

    This is definitely a gem I’ll be checking out; amazing visuals!

    Well, I know what I’m watching later today.

    I remember seeing a clip from this in the Monster Madness promo vid, and wondering what movie it was. Seriously, Mario Bava’s Black Sunday and City of the Dead have some of the best black and white cinematography I’ve ever seen.

    dude…. Motel Hell from 1980. good trivia, strange as hell. not my fave but exactly what you tend to find on these awesome reviews.

    R.I.P. Christopher Lee

    What the hell man? There’s not enough fog! We need fog!

      I got a fever, and the only prescription is more fog!

    I watched this movie recently, it has aged remarkably well, I totally recommend it! “Bring your daughter…” is an awesome song, once you get what it’s about 😉 Also, Bruce Dickinson’s
    version is better than the Iron Maiden one.

    Awesome as always. I’d already seen about half the movies this year so far – this one included, thanks to Rifftrax – but the ones I hadn’t seen, I’ve picked up and have been enjoying the hell out of. Thanks!

  • October 27, 2015 at 2:06 pm

    I gotta check this film out now. It looks really cool. Thanks for the recommendation, James.

    Great review!

  • October 27, 2015 at 2:54 pm

    I feel like this was the movie in the small clip where you mention atmospheric black and white during the Susperia video.

    (I kept wanting to know what it was)

    Christopher Bee! Wow! I wish Boris Karloffice was in this! What about Green Stranger?

    Great movie!

  • Sweetdeath

    October 27, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    Definitely seems like a hidden classic, so I’m going to check it out. Thanks for sharing, James!! It’s almost Halloween.

  • October 27, 2015 at 8:50 pm

    I’m assuming that the Misfits song Horror Hotel is named after the alternate title of this movie.

    I have to check this out now

    Does this movie have fog in it?

  • TagaZok

    October 28, 2015 at 12:46 am

    Fog fog fog hell yeah!Luv the idea of listening to on in my opinion every black and white movie with fog , in the dark with the light off and à jacklantern.

    This movie just looks really nice, visually. Sounds like it would be worth a watch.
