With more people having to stay home, why keep it boring? Turn off the lights, get a snack, and get comfy for some more B-movie mayhem!
The Crater Lake Monster (1977)
After a meteor crashes in a lake, a prehistoric monster emerges from the waters and attacks at random. The local sheriff (Richard Cardella) investigates with the help of three scientists (Bob Hyman, Richard Garrison, and Kacey Cobb) while two locals (Glenn Robers, and Mark Siegel) keep renting out boats to potential victims. The creature effects were directed by legendary stop motion director/artist David Allen.
The Bat (1959)
The film is a remake of the 1926 silent film of the same name that was based on the 1920 stage play of the same name that was based on the 1908 novel The Circular Staircase by Mary Roberts Rinehart. The film follows a mystery writer (Agnes Moorehead) who is caught up in a mystery when the serial killer known as “The Bat” keeps entering the mansion she’s staying in at night looking for something.
The Crazies (1973)
Before the remake in 2010, this George A. Romero film told the story of a small town being infected by a chemical weapon from two sides, Military and government scientists (Harry Spillman, Lloyd Hollar, and Richard France) trying to maintain quarantine and control of the town, and two firefighters/war veterans and a nurse (Will McMillian, Harold Wayne Jones, and Lane Carroll) trying to escape the madness.
Teenagers from Outer Space (1959)
This film is as B-film as you can get with its campy acting and special effects! The story follows an alien named Derek (David Love) as he’s trying to stop his people from letting loose an alien species called Gargons that act as cattle for his homeworld.
Stay tuned, there’s more, lots more, coming!
