    ★★★

    Roberta Findlay's Lurkers works with a similar conceit in a more satisfying way, but geez is this ever a crazy cast and a film fully committed to being weird. Plus plenty of 1977 NYC.

    I always kind of enjoy horror films by directors who don't usually work in the genre; there often seems to be some bizarre quality unleashed by the looser constraints.

    Naschy's love of these monsters shines through in every film he made. Helga Liné is this one's MVP, though.

    Iron Warrior

    ★★★★

    Really does feel like slipping into a dream, floating from scene to scene in a similar manner to something like Phantasm, discarding logic. Beautiful locations, minimal burdensome story. I watched just before drifting to sleep, the only way it should be seen, maybe. It felt like only half an hour had passed when the end credits hit. This will probably become a late night staple for me.

  • Call of the Blonde Goddess

    Call of the Blonde Goddess

    ★★★★

    A sun-drenched fantasy. This might be Jess making his very-Franco version of I Walked with a Zombie. The blonde goddess is made up like Jean Harlow. It was a pleasure to let this movie wash over me on a bright Saturday afternoon. The infinity of mirrors in the bedrooms parallels the unending call to the voodoo ritual for our heroine; if only the repetition of the quarantine days were anything like THAT.
