Music to Make Horror Movies By: Daliah Lavi

Enacting the passionate throes of Nevenka Menliff as she endured the casual cruelty of Christopher Lee’s Kurt in Mario Bava’s Gothic horror The Whip and the Body surely gave the delicious Daliah Lavi some insight into those less fortunate than others.

Indeed, one need only listen to her dramatic vocalizing of Sympathy to grasp how deeply this exotic beauty, whose other groovy genre style credits include The Return of Dr. Mabuse, The Demon and Ten Little Indians, recognizes the plight of those in need.

 

Lovely…

Christopher Lee Tribute

Published July 21, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

Terror in the Aisles’ latest event is a Christopher Lee tribute and will feature screenings of Death Line (Raw Meat), The Wicker Man and The Horror of Dracula.

Of course, what makes this particular evening even cooler is the participation of Death Line director Gary Sherman. The personable Sherman is one of the greatest cult film directors of the 80s with such credits as Dead and Buried, Vice Squad, Wanted: Dead or Alive, Poltergeist III and (the seriously underrated) Lisa under his blood stained celluloid belt.

The event, which also features the debut screenings of various shorts and trailers, takes place in Chicago on Saturday, July 25th.

Hell of A Gal: Horror Express (1972)

Published March 12, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

Hell of A Gal explores the many genre credits of European exploitation goddess Helga Liné!

Diversity, thy name is Helga Liné! While her role of Natasha in the deliriously fun 1972 Spanish/British mash-up Horror Express finds her in familiar bad girl territory, this definitive fatale also adds a light sense of girlish comedy to her scenes with terror legend Peter Cushing.

Sneaking aboard the Trans-Siberian Express, Liné’s Natasha talks her way into the room of Cushing’s turn-of-the-century anthropologist. Charmed by her seductive brashness, the two strike up an engaging friendship. Of course, that relationship is cut short when Natasha’s thieving ways earn her a place on the victim’s list of a prehistoric caveman, who just happens to house the essence of a murderous alien creature. (I know! Happens every day, right?!?)Helga and Cushing

Still, in her unfortunately short screen time here, Liné and Cushing shine together. Their cute chemistry, also, produces one of the unusual screenplay’s funniest lines, as well.

A blend of Euro horror (with both more traditional and zombie elements), zany action and science fiction, Horror Express features delightful performances from almost everyone involved (including horror legend Christopher Lee and an exuberantly wacked out Telly Savalas) and Severin’s ( http://www.severin-films.com ) 2011 Blu-Ray re-mastering features such amazing extras as an extensive audio interview with Cushing and features with director Eugenio Martin and composer John Cacavas.
