And on with the B-movie horrors…Part 3Regan Macaulay
Time for some of those “so bad they’re good” movies…and these ones have semi-impressive casting!
The Devil’s Rain, 1975, the year of my birth…mwah-ha-ha-ha…starring William Shatner, Tom Skerrit, Ernest Borgnine, Eddie Albert, Ida Lupino, Keenan Wynn and John Travolta in his extremely brief film debut! What an incredible cast for such a crappy-good film! Very much in line with the satanic-occult obsession of the 60s and 70s. Good fun, and lots of melty-faces.
Frogs, 1972…my favourite creatures! Eco-horror shlock at its finest. And another good cast: Sam Elliott, Joan Van Arl, Adam Roarke and the ever irascible Ray Milland–he is at his grouchiest here. If you love toads as much as I do (most of the amphibians “swamping” the people of this little island are actually toads–either Cane toads or Rococo and maybe some smaller species, too), you will love watching them cover the isle in a plague of themselves! Loads of other reptiles to ogle at, too.
