“Gaze! Gaze on the fiery cross and return to the darkness of your cold tombs.” That’ll never work. They don’t have ears! Join your faithful Grue Crew – Doc Rotten, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr along with guest host Jerry Chandler – as they focus on The Ghost Galleon (1974), the third film in Amando de Ossorio’s Blind Dead series.

The living corpses of the Satan-worshiping Knights Templar hunt for human victims in a 16th-century galleon.

 

Guest host Jerry Chandler returns to tackle another chapter of the Knights Templar/Blind Dead franchise with The Ghost Galleon (1974). The ghoulish critters are trapped on a centuries-old galleon lost in a mist suspiciously tied to another dimension. [scratches head] Que? Ignore the wonky science and enjoy the brilliant Amando de Ossorio atmosphere and the spooky design of the Blind Dead themselves. The characters are (mostly) all despicable and the story is a bit… questionable. Regardless, you can’t deny the impact of the final scenes of the Knights rising out of the ocean, the seawater pouring from their eye sockets as they circle the surviving members for the final kill. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

At the time of this writing, The Ghost Galleon is available to stream from Wicked Horror TV, Tubi, Full Moon, and Flix Fling as well as various PPV sources. 

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s. In two weeks, the next episode, chosen by guest host Bill, will be Daughters of Darkness (1971, Les lèvres rouges), an erotic horror film that provides another imagining into the “legend” of Elizabeth Báthory.

On a spooky island, three stranded travelers find an evil doctor working with foreign spies and in control of zombies.

 

Combine the “Old Dark House” genre with a voodoo-zombie picture and you get King of the Zombies (1941). This light-hearted, slightly cringy but entertaining B-Movie feature is well worth a look back at its style, impact, and cast. The film may not be widely remembered but it handles the genre with ease, humor, and a smidge of tension. The Grue-Crew examines the film’s contributions and missteps. Let the shenanigans begin.

At the time of this writing, King of the Zombies is available for streaming from the Classic Horror Movie Channel, Amazon Prime, MGM+, Screambox, Kanopy, and Tubi.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks.

An infant king is rescued from a priest’s ritual sacrifice and raised in a humble village. In time, he learns he has the power to communicate with animals and when the priest’s followers destroy his village, he uses his power in a quest for revenge.

 

Join the Grue-Crew and special guest host Renee St. Aubin as they revisit the sword-and-sorcery cult favorite, The Beatmaster (1982), from Phantasm director Don Coscarelli. The cast includes Marc Singer, Tanya Roberts, Rip Torn, and John Amos. The film played so much on HBO that the acronym was jokingly referred to as, “Hey, Beastmaster’s On!” This film has it all: bat people, killer ferrets, black-dyed tigers, and much more. Casting choices that didn’t make the cut? Demi Moore as Kiri (played by Tanya Roberts) and Klaus Kinksi as Maax (played by Rip Torn). Could this be Jeff Mohr’s new favorite Eighties film? You’ll have to listen to find out.

At the time of this writing, The Beastmaster is available to stream from Amazon Prime and on physical media as a 4k Ultra HD Two-Disc Set from Vinegar Syndrome.

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film chosen by Crystal, will be House (1985). This one’s a double-tap with a different Grue Crew, seven years after Doc Rotten, Christopher G. Moore, and Thomas Mariani did it up.

“I’d like you to tell the public that this whole abomination is hurting business. It’s ruining my plans for a housing project. Nobody wants to buy land with an ugly demon running loose.” Ah, but a good-looking demon is another story. Join your faithful Grue Crew – Doc Rotten, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr along with guest host Dirk Rogers – as they scrutinize the legendary, … or infamous, Trog (1970)!

A sympathetic anthropologist uses drugs and surgery to try to communicate with a primitive troglodyte who is found living in a local cave.

 

Special guest-host Dirk Rogers joins the Grue Crew for this episode, picking the much-mentioned, often disparaged Trog (1970) which stars Joan Crawford (in her final film role) and Michael Gough. While the makeup/”mask” of Trog looks fantastic, the rest of the costume fails to live up to the title’s promise, generating more chuckles than gasps. The film is often cheesy and full of plot holes with ample amounts of questionable science; yet, somehow, Trog manages to be entertaining and fast-paced, wasting no time getting to the creature and the conflict between scientist Crawford and the corrupt town asshole Gough. Shenanigans ensue. The Grue-Crew share their thoughts on the film, the cast, and the effects of this early Seventies creature feature.

At the time of this writing, Trog is available to stream from Dailymotion and various PPV sources. The film is available on physical media in Blu-ray format from Shout! Factory.

When a narcotics dealer disappears, leaving only his clothes, Tokyo police are stumped. A scientist claims H-Bomb tests in the Pacific have created radioactive creatures – “H-Men” – who ooze like slime and liquify anyone they touch.

 

Are you ready to battle an invasion of liquified men? Watch out, The Blob (1958), The H-Man (1958) is here to make you rue the day. Toho Films and director Ishirô Honda (Godzilla, 1954) blend sci-fi, horror, film noir, and… cabaret… for all kinds of horrifying shenanigans. Yup, people liquify left and right throughout the short 87-minute runtime. That’s right, only gooey globs of clothes and hairpieces remain. Join the Grue-Crew along with special guest-host Chris Peters (aka, José) as they revisit and review this unusual yet highly entertaining entry from the film company that gave the world Akira Kurosawa, Ishirô Honda, Godzilla, Mothra, and so much more.

At the time of this writing, The H-Man is available for streaming from the Classic Horror Movie Channel, Classic Sci-Fi Movie Channel, and Tubi.

“Men are all liars! Men are animals! All the people here deserve to die! Especially Permana and Baidah. I swear on the devil’s in hell. Tonight I will kill everyone in this village.” When a witch is abused in a relationship, they don’t mess around. Join your faithful Grue Crew – Crystal Cleveland, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr along with guest host Scott Wells – as they discuss this influential Indonesian horror film, The Queen of Black Magic (1982).

A woman is accused of being a witch and is thrown to her death over a cliff. However, a strange man rescues her, nurses her back to health, and she is told that she must master black magic to exact vengeance on her tormentors.

 

Many of you may not have seen or heard of this early Eighties Indonesian horror picture, The Queen of Black Magic (1981). Also known as Ratu Ilmu Hitam (original title) and Black Magic 3, the film was loosely remade by Kimo Stamboel and Joko Anwar in 2019. Does this tagline entice you? “He seduced and destroyed her. Now, she would make them pay!” Join the Grue Crew and special guest host Scott Wells as they dive into this Indonesian classic about fickle love affairs, vengeance, and black magic!

At the time of this writing, The Queen of Black Magic is available to stream from YouTube. You can view a subtitled version here: The Queen of Black Magic

In 17th-century Hungary, elderly widow Countess Elisabeth Nádasdy maintains her misleading youthful appearance by bathing in the blood of virgins regularly supplied to her by faithful servants.

 

Grue Believer Celebration Shenanigans continues with this review of Countess Dracula (1971), selected by special guest host and Decades of Horror fan Gregory Crosby. In this episode, the Grue Crew tackles another Hammer film from the Seventies featuring the stunning and talented Ingrid Pitt in the title role. While the film has no fangs and has little to do with Dracula, it borrows heavily from the legends of Countess Bathory who is said to have bathed in the blood of virgins to restore her youth. Countess Dracula is far more serious and mature than many of Hammer’s offerings throughout the decade and is well worth a revisit. Check out the Grue-Crew discussion to discover why.

At the time of this writing, Countess Dracula is available to stream from Classic Horror Movie Channel, Wicked Horror TV Channel, Shudder, AMC+, and Tubi. The film is available on physical media in Blu-ray format from Synapse Films.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s.

In 15th-century Paris, the brother of the archdeacon plots with the gypsy king to foment a peasant revolt. Meanwhile, a freakish hunchback falls in love with a gypsy dancer.

 

Lon Chaney Sr. is a legend of classic horror movies. His make-up and monsters are iconic, from Phantom of the Opera (1925) to London After Midnight (1927). Another mind-blowing Chaney character is Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923).

Isolated by his strange parents, Leon finds solace in an imaginary friend, which happens to be an anatomy doll from his father-the-doctor’s office. Unfortunately, the doll begins to take over Leon’s life, and his sister’s life as well.

 

Beware the anatomy doll! Ralph Miller III joins Jeff, Bill, and Chad for a look back at PIN (1988) from director Sandor Stern. The cast includes David Hewlett (Scanners II: The New Order, Cube), Cynthia Preston (The BrainProm Night III: The Last Kiss), and Terry O’Quinn (Silver BulletThe StepfatherLost).

After being released from a mental hospital, Otto returns to his old job as a butcher. He tries to adjust to his new life, but after a bitter argument with his wife, he accidentally kills her. Fearing he will be sent back to the hospital, he grinds up her body and sells it as sausages. The popularity of his new sausage recipe necessitates that others find their way into his butcher’s display case.

 

If you are a fan of Victor Buono (Batman,1966-68; What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, 1962; Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte, 1964), then we have the episode for you. The Mad Butcher (1971) is a unique beast of a film: a dark comedy in the vein of Sweeney Todd. It’s bizarre, clumsy, silly, yet oddly entertaining. And, well, “Meat is Meat,” yes? Check out what the Grue-Crew think of this often-overlooked nugget.

In 1960, a military test pilot is caught in a time warp that propels him to the year 2024 where he finds a plague has sterilized the world’s population.

 

While testing the latest and greatest airship just above the atmosphere, Major William Allison (Robert Clarke) accidentally travels to the apocalyptic future of… 2024! Little did they know. Beyond the Time Barrier (1960) is a low-budget, sci-fi B-picture from director Edgar G. Ulmer (The Black Cat, 1934; Detour, 1945) and writer Arthur C. Pierce (The Cosmic Man, 1959; The Human Duplicators, 1965). To Chad’s dismay, the plot includes a lot of walking and talking across a set filled with inverted pyramids. Oh, and the mutants… sigh.

“It would be nice just to see one little spurt at the moment of slashing.” A little spurt, you say? Can do. Join your faithful Grue Crew – Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr – as they take a trip to George A.

While a small film crew are shooting a low-budget horror movie in a house in the woods, the lines between reality and fiction start to blur, and the movie slowly turns into a “snuff” film.

Filmed in 1978 and released the following year, Effects (1979) features Tom Savini (as both actor and special effects guru) and a collection of George A. Romero’s filmmaking friends and colleagues. Oh, yeah, the cast also includes Day of the Dead‘s Captain Rhodes, Joseph Pilato, in a lead role. Shot on a miniscule budget with an ambitious script, the feature contains a story within a story with another movie buried within. The Grue-Crew share their thoughts on all the shenanigans and then read through a hefty amount of feedback. This one has all the goods!

At the time of this writing, Effects is available to stream from Tubi, Screambox, and Arrow, as well as various PPV options. The film is available on physical media as a Blu-ray from AGFA.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s. In two weeks, the next episode, chosen by Chad, will be The Mad Butcher (1971), aka Lo strangolatore di Vienna, starring Victor Buono. Yikes!

Dracula travels to the American West, intent on making a beautiful ranch owner his next victim. Her fiance, outlaw Billy the Kid, finds out about it and rushes to save her.

 

The subgenre of horror-westerns is not often used. In 1966, however, Embassy Pictures released a pair of this mixed breed on a groovy double feature. Joining Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter (1966) is tonight’s feature discussion, Billy the Kid Versus Dracula (1966). Both of these genre mashups are directed by William Beaudine. Once again, Dracula is portrayed by John Carradine (House of Frankenstein, 1944; House of Dracula, 1945) and you might also recognize Chuck Courtney, who plays Billy the Kid, from (Pet Sematary, 1989). From there the cast becomes a who’s who of TV and Film Westerns character actors, putting Jeff in his happy place!

Carradine once said this film was “the worst movie he ever acted in.” The Grue-Crew may have other thoughts. Check it out now and let us know what you think of this bizarre and fun blend of genres. 

At the time of this writing, Billy the Kid Versus Dracula is available for streaming from several different sources. The Grue Crew found the best resolution on the Classic Horror Movie Channel and Kanopy, but, among others, it can also be found on Tubi and Plex. The film is available on physical media as a Blu-ray from Kino Lorber.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next in their very flexible schedule, as chosen by Jeff, is Beyond the Time Barrier (1960), directed by Edgar G. Ulmer (The Black Cat, 1934) and starring Robert Clarke (The Hideous Sun Demon, 1958).

The owner of a closed-down slaughterhouse sets his intellectually disabled psychopathic son on the people who want to take his land away and the unlucky teens who decide to party there.

 

Ah, Slaughterhouse (1987). “You’ll Never Get Out in One Piece!” is one enticing tagline while the second tagline, “Buddy Has an Axe to Grind. A Big Axe,” may give you a better idea of what you’re in for with this low-budget dark comedy slasher. The Grue Crew chuckles aimlessly at the humor, gags at the gruesome opening shots, and questions the film in general. As Bill says, at least it goes for Texas Chainsaw Massacre instead of Halloween. Snort, snort!

A serial killer who drains his victims’ blood is on the loose in London. The police follow him to a house owned by an eccentric scientist.

 

First, take a killer film title and an equally killer poster. Then grab a bizarre tale that includes long (yet exciting) car chases, vampires (sort of), Frankenstein (sort of), Nazis (sort of), super Vulcan nerve pinches (sort of), and a bubbling vat of acid. Then cast it with three iconic horror actors and what do you get? Scream and Scream Again from Amicus, directed by Gordon Hessler, and featuring Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing. Even if all three are never in the same scene, the results are oddly compelling, yet … goofy and frustrating. Despite the negatives, this film has grown a cult following. What might the Grue Crew make of it?

At the time of this writing, Scream and Scream Again is available to stream from Tubi and Freevee, as well as various PPV options. The film is available on physical media as a Special Edition Blu-ray from Kino Lorber.

Decades of Horror 1980s is partnering with the WICKED HORROR TV CHANNEL (https://wickedhorrortv.com/) which now includes video episodes of 1980s and is available on Roku, AppleTV, Amazon FireTV, AndroidTV, and its online website across all OTT platforms, as well as mobile, tablet, and desktop.

A young man inadvertently breaks three important rules concerning his new pet and unleashes a horde of malevolently mischievous monsters on a small town.

 

Effects artist Ralph Miller joins the Grue-Crew to add his experience working on Gremlin’s creature crew, led by Chris Walas, the designer of Mogwai and the gremlins. Though the crew focuses on the film’s effects, they also delve into the cast, cameos, crew, and behind-the-scenes stories. 

In July 2014, Doc Rotten and Thomas Mariani covered Gremlins before the Monster Movie Podcast became Decades of Horror 1980s. Check it what they had to say at this link: 

As of 21 January 2024, Gremlins is available for streaming from many PPV sites and on physical media in 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray formats. 

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Jeff, will be Slaughterhouse (1987). They may need a shower after this one.

“Mircalla?” “Marcilla?” “But that girl is a guest in my house. Her name is Carmilla. And my daughter is dying!” Looks like “Anagrams ‘R’ Us” is at it again. Join your faithful Grue Crew – Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr – as they cover the last film standing from Doc Rotten’s and The Black Saint’s favorite 70s horror films, Hammer’s The Vampire Lovers (1970)!

Decades of Horror 1970s is partnering with the WICKED HORROR TV CHANNEL (https://wickedhorrortv.com/) which now includes video episodes of the podcast and is available on Roku, AppleTV, Amazon FireTV, AndroidTV, and its online website across all OTT platforms, as well as mobile, tablet, and desktop.

Seductive vampire Carmilla Karnstein and her family target the beautiful and the rich in a remote area of late eighteenth-century Germany.

 

Can you believe that in over 200 episodes we have yet to cover Hammer’s The Vampire Lovers (1970)? Well, now is the time! Featuring Peter Cushing and Ingrid Pitt, this Roy Ward Baker classic is likely beloved by many Monster Kids growing up with Famous Monsters of Filmland and their many coffee table monster movie books as it was featured often in those beloved tomes. The film also stars Pippa Steel, Madeline Smith, Kate O’Mara, George Cole, Jon Finch, Ferdy Mayne, Dawn Adams, Harvey Hall, and John Forbes-Robertson. Hammer not only kicks off the 1970s but also their Karnstein trilogy with fangs, blood, and ample nudity. The Grue Crew share their thoughts on the film, the cast, and the trilogy.

The Vampire Lovers is the last of the twenty films that Doc Rotten and The Black Saint chose as their ’70s favorites back in 2013, an event that led to the creation of the Decades of Horrors 1970s podcast. The two episodes were edited for video and rereleased in 2022. Below are links to those two landmark podcasts and episodes on the other two films in the Karnstgein Trilogy.

At the time of this writing, The Vampire Lovers is available to stream from Tubi, Freevee, and Flix Fling. The film is available on physical media as a Collectors Edition Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s. In two weeks, the next episode, chosen by Doc, will be Scream and Scream Again (1970) from Amicus, sporting the horror trifecta of Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing. Well, they are all three in the movie.
