Here at The Waltz Compound there are two things that are the same year after year for my birthday. One involves me and my wife not leaving the bedroom for a few hours and the other is that I get to do what I want for the day.
Everyone was lucky that I wanted pancakes with rum soaked pears for breakfast, but after that I watched movies.
Here's what went down at The Waltz Compound;
CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD
I can still remember sitting in Eastowne 5 theater watching this as THE GATES OF HELL. I thought it was awesome except for the part where the woman lost all of her guts out of her mouth and I had to make a mad dash to the bathroom to lose my popcorn. I watch this one once in a while and it just sticks in my head. A great, weird zombie flick.
TERROR FROM THE YEAR 5000
This one showed on Shock Theater when I was a kid and it scared the shit out of me! Now, I'm not sure what did it, but I suspect that the black and white photography coupled with the wild Florida swamplands did a number on my young skull. Another great flick.
This is my first time for this flick and it was funny. A little too derivative for someone who has watched every H.G. Lewis movie in the world, but it was okay. David Hess looked like he was having a good time and Sasha Grey is always nice to look at. Shes what Misty Mundae would have been if she had done hardcore. Also, she takes a horrible profile shot. She works better at a three quarters shot. Probably why she poses like that all the time in her photos. Anyway, it was fun.
THE MAN AND THE MONSTER
Thought I would watch an old episode of THE DUNGEON OF DR. DRECK a horror host show out of the Boston area hosted by my good buddy, film maker Michael Legge. From the wilds of Mexico comes a really weird flick. Kind of Jekyll and Hyde, but more of a curse than anything and it only happens when he plays the piano. The monster is kind of silly, but for the time frame this is kind of a creepy monster fest.
