I had never seen Monster a Go-Go (1965) before last week. I’ve enjoyed other movies by Wisconsin filmmaker Bill Rebane, including The Giant Spider Invasion(1975), Blood Harvest (1987) and The Alpha Incident (1978).

But prior to that, I had collected quite a few VHS tapes and DVDs. One of those tapes, which I purchased at a dying video store after an all night drive to Edmonton, was Horror of the Blood Monsters(1970).Continue reading →

King Kong (1933) I remember, and I watched it whenever it was on TV. Later on I added King Kong (1976) to the regular watch list as well.
