I am hoping to re-watch the entire show over time, and I will post my thoughts here, even though everyone on the planet knows the show already. […]

The Monster Club (1981)

The Monster Club is a 1981 anthology film whose frame narrative stars Vincent Price and John Carradine. Three stories are told over the course of this film, one of which is a vampire tale. […]

If you are looking for a good comedy, you should stay far away from this film. […]
