A nostalgic take on the late night movie hosts from Western Pennsylvania & Northeast Ohio, coming to you from New Castle, Pennsylvania!
For September your hosts are pleased to bring you "The Legend of Lizzie Borden"!This film is an excellent portrayal of the infamous Lizzie Borden Axe murders that took place in Fall River, MA. It is a period piece set in the late 1800's and brags some very impressive performances by 2 actresses who are generally considered to be television actresses. Although, this was a made for TV movie it has many qualities to it that would certainly endear it to the silver screen. Elizabeth Montgomery puts on a very impressive performance as the main character but also Katherine Helmond is equally good as Emma Borden. This is, by far, the greatest movie performance of both of these actresses illustrious careers. The story is well put together, based on facts with some speculation toward the end of the film. As most people are quite aware, Lizzie was acquitted of the crime she was accused of but this film provides a logical conclusion and assumption as to what really did happen to Andrew Borden and his wife, something that is still speculated on today. The murders themselves were heinous and brutal and this film does not shy away from that but it does manage to avoid becoming exploitative with the subject matter as well. Definitely one of the best made for TV films in American history. "I told you what I did...I ate my pears!" So pour yourself a nice refreshment, slice up some pears and relax with your hosts The Management over at our YouTube channel New Castle After Dark!
As we continue through Summers' last full month, we bring you a sequel!! Dr. Phibes Rises Again is a 1972 British horror-dark comedy film, produced by Louis M. Heyward, directed by Robert Fuest, that stars Vincent Price and Robert Quarry. The film is a sequel to The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971). After seeking vengeance on the doctors whom he blamed for his wife's death in the first film, Phibes returns to seek eternal life in Egypt and hopefully resurrect his dearly deceased wife. So kick back, stay cool and enjoy with your hosts The Management!
For our July selection, we lean into the Sci-Fi somewhat, Scream and Scream Again is a 1970 British-American science fiction conspiracy thriller film starring Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, Alfred Marks, Michael Gothard, and Peter Cushing. It is based on the novel The Disorientated Man (1967) by 'Peter Saxon', a house pseudonym used by various authors in the 1960s and 1970s. Although the film's title, and association with stars Price, Lee and Cushing, might suggest a violent horror film, the violence in the film is mostly understated and/or off-screen, while the plot owes more to films like Invasion of the Body Snatchers or 1970's era 'conspiracy thrillers' like The Parallax View. So pour yourself an ice cold beverage, kick off your slippers and relax with your hosts The Management!
Tonight your hosts are pleased to bring another classic, 1973's The Creeping Flesh! It was directed by Freddie Francis and written by Peter Spenceley, and stars Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, and Lorna Heilbron. The film was released by Columbia Pictures to cinemas on 1 January 1973. So head on over to our YouTube channel, pour yourself a beverage, relax and enjoy!
Good evening, we hope all is well with everyone as we finally get into the warmer weather! Tonight your hosts are pleased to bring you another fine classic horror film based on Edgar Allen Poe's story, The Oblong Box starring Vincent Price and Christopher Lee! Loosely based on the 1844 short story "The Oblong Box", it explores and combines several Edgar Allan Poe themes, such as premature burial and masked figures, and combine them with a non-Poe theme of voodoo ritual killings. The film takes place in England in 1865. Having been grotesquely disfigured in an African voodoo ceremony for a transgression against the native populace, Sir Edward Markham (Alister Williamson) is kept locked in his room by his guilt-ridden brother, Julian (Vincent Price). Sir Edward escapes and seeks his revenge! So kick back with a fine beverage and enjoy 1969's The Oblong Box!
Spring is in the air and your hosts The Management are pleased to bring you a fine horror comedy! Love at First Bite is a 1979 American comedy horror film directed by Stan Dragoti and written by Robert Kaufman, using characters originally created by Bram Stoker. It stars George Hamilton, Susan Saint James, Richard Benjamin and Arte Johnson. "Love at First Bite" is a brilliant spoof of the original Dracula. The update of Dracula in New York has been redone many times but this one is very good! Well, it's a little dated with the disco vibe and the clothing, but George Hamilton's accent and deep Dracula gaze are great. Robert Kaufman and George Hamilton had obviously studied the Bela Lugosi version carefully, and there are many references to famous lines, e.g., "I never drink...wine." So kick back and relax on this fine evening and enjoy Love at First Bite!
Spring has arrived and even YouTube is feeling it! They have returned a blocked movie to our channel, in all of it's early 80's goodness, One Dark Night!! One Dark Night is a 1983 American supernatural horror film directed by Tom McLoughlin and starring Meg Tilly, E. G. Daily, and Adam West. The film follows a teenager sent to a mausoleum for the night as part of a high school initiation rite. This film deserves to be rediscovered, it is the type of horror film that uses simple elements to create a tense atmosphere, which in turn helps raise the chill factor in the viewer. Head over to our channel page, scroll down to #16 video and enjoy!
