Christmas is upon us. I’ve always preferred the eve to the day, just feels more mellow and chilled. A couple of drinks on the go and the hand keeps reaching for the snack bowls. Perfect time for a movie or two before the big day comes. A christmas eve roast is cooking, the Bushmills Irish Whiskey is a flowing. A Miracle on 34th Street (1947) is cued up ready for watching later. Christmas is here. Continue reading →
January on Wolfmans Cult Film Blog is to be dedicated to that wonderful movie genre of science fiction. So whether it will be spaceships traveling to distant worlds, killer aliens from Mars, time travel, quantum physics or just a man dressed in a rubber blob suit. There’s sure to be something for everyone. Continue reading →
Storm Riordan (Sally Gray) is not to be confused with a certain naughty Stormy who turned tricks for a President with bouffant hair in her spare time. Or even be mistaken for that African American lady who causes pandemonium with her weather controlling superpowers when she’s in a bit of a mood. No, this Storm is a pretty normal lass, goes to work, likes the cinema and entertaining friends. She loves her cute little dog, Monty but unfortunately she has fallen out of love with her husband Dr. Clive Riordan (Robert Newton) Continue reading →
Featuring one of the most scathingly brutal smash downs I’ve seen on screen. Not only do you witness the moment the human spirit breaks inside a poor unfortunate fellow but you the viewers own eternal soul is torn from its tether. The intensity of the fierce, savage beatdown is spat into the face of its victim like erupting molten lava. He stands, shocked, flabbergasted and innocently stupid as he takes his punishment! But what else would you expect from a movie with a title called Of Human Bondage?
Tagline – The story of a man who burnt up his soul for an idol cold as ice!
Christopher (Charlton Heston) is a king kong prat! He’s gifted a beautiful, intelligent, free spirited, buxom, mail order bride with only one real desire, to procreate! And all this moody plonker can worry about is sloppy seconds! He’s not a happy bunny at all, huffing and puffing, this primadonna has mood swings coming out his arse! Temper tantrums, door smashing, perfume throwing and he even proudly announces his skill at refraining from bedding his indigenous workers! He’s a total twonk.
Maybe it’s an insight into my own fractured mind but I do enjoy a good insane asylum film. Traveling into the depths of madness. They do have to be done well and feature deep thoughts on the subject. Films like David and Lisa and Shock Corridor have score high on my wolfy meter. Continue reading →
There I was sitting giggling to myself, waiting for this hilarious, frightened, petrified woodland to appear only to find out it was just a few rocks in the godforsaken desert. Of course I’m only having a laugh. I found The Petrified Forest a very intriguing title. I knew Humphrey Bogart had a standout role within the film but I wasn’t here this time for him. This viewing was for a certain actress called Bette Davis, which, sit down before I say this, I’d not seen any of her films! Please forgive me, I take myself off on a long walk as penance!
