He hates prostitutes, families, kids, people looking for people pretty much everyone but his pet crocodile. He swings his scythe that it’s nobody’s business.

We have the typical swamp in the south redneck type film with some pretty 70s girls. We have a very young Robert Englund who craves anal sex from these ladies; we have lots of blood, body parts, a great rubber crocodile and a crazed man who looks like Stephen King swinging a scythe. Some decent gore for its time and the film was actually fun to watch and love the mood of the 70s horror that Tobe Hooper once again delivered. The film is pretty simple a now reformed hooker goes missing and her family try to hunt down what happened to her and poor old Judd is trying to cover his tracks.

Rating: Too be honest I did not mind this film and love this whole era of horror so it was hard to go wrong plus we have Marilyn Burns as a scream queen yet again. They could have dropped the red lighting as that did get on my nervous but overall with the cheesiness it was fun to watch. But with blood, the gore of scythe, jaws of death of the crocodile and Janus Blythe, Marilyn Burns and Crystin Sinclaire it was hard to really go wrong.

House of Wax (1953)

House of Wax (1953)

Country: USA

Director: Andre de Toth

Main Stars: Vincent Price, Frank Lovejoy, Phyllis Kirk, Carolyn Jones

Storyline: An old associate of a wax museum burns down the place along with its owner. The owner survives and becomes full of revenge and hate.

MV5BNzc4NjAyNzE0OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzg3MDAwMQ@@__V1_SY317_CR1,0,214,317_Review (Spoils): Professor Jarrod (Vincent Price) is an artist who creates classic characters like Joan of Arc or Marie Antoinette to become life like. Business partner Burke does not care much for Jarrod so he burns the place down including Jarrod himself. A year and a half later Jarrod reappears opening a new museum. He wants to rebuild what he once had and he needs to recreate the Marie Antoinette piece and has his eyes on a young Sue Allen (Phyllis Kirk ) but he has a new way of sculpting.

This is a classic horror film even for Vincent Price himself. The movie is kind of slow at first but the macabre comes to life once he comes back to the real world after the fire. Vincent Price play his typical role of the over acting, over emotional self but it works so fine in this film.

Rating:  This is another of Vincent Price at his best. This is way better then the piece of shit with Paris Hilton. Bring on the macabre and drink too it.
