I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and now here we are 3 days before a brand new year.
Now I will continue the countdown as we enter the top 20 for 2018.
20. WONDER WOMEN 1976 (VINEGAR SYNDROME) BLU-RAY...This is a great little exploitation film with Ross Hagen as an insurance investigator taking on an evil female doctor and her all woman army. Nancy Kwan and Maria De Aragon co-star.
19. ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES 1978 (MVD) BLU-RAY...An all time favorite comes to Blu-ray with all the goofy humor and music one can stand. I simply love this film as was as happy as a pig in mud when I heard it was coming out.
18. THE MAZE 1953 (KINO) BLU-RAY...Another stunning 50's epic on Blu. This also contains the 3D version of the film which I can't watch, of course. The picture quality and sound are top notch, and it's great that Kino brought out this sought after gem.
17. KILINK IN ISTANBUL 1967 (SINISTER CINEMA)...The highest rated Sinister disc this year. A Turkish action film like no other I have ever seen before. This is a film to see by all means.
16. TRILOGY OF TERROR 1975 (KINO) BLU-RAY...Made for TV classic starring Karen Black in three tales of terror. The last story is entitled Amelia and is now something of legend with the Zuni Fetish doll come to life. UNFORGETTABLE film and a great presentation.
15. A STRANGE ADVENTURE 1956 (KINO) BLU-RAY...Solid film noir about gangsters holding hostages in a small mountain retreat. Beautiful Marla English stars with Jan Merlin. I had waited many years to see this flick and I wasn't disappointed at all. Kino did an astounding job bringing this to Blu-ray.
14. QUADROON 1971 (CODE RED) BLU-RAY...Great regional film made in Louisiana about love, lust and murder on a plantation. Gorgeous Kathy McKee stars as Coral, a slave who has an ill fated love. The rest of the cast for this dark and disturbing film includes Annabelle Weenick and Bill McGhee. It's a sad thing they cannot make movies like this anymore.
13. NIGHT STALKER 1971 (KINO) BLU-RAY...Darren McGavin stars as Carl Kolchek, a Las Vegas reporter on the trail of a vampire stalking the city. One of the best Made For TV movies ever!! The presentation here is flawless and I hope Kino continues to mine the TV gold of the 70's.
12. MAMIE VAN DOREN FILM NOIR COLLECTION 1957-1959 (KINO)... I think Mamie was one of the sexiest women ever to grace a movie screen and these three films show why. The films are "Vice Raid", "Girl In Black Stockings" and "Guns. Girls and Gangsters". A triple feature with Mamie. Who could ask for more?
11. THE THING 1951 (WARNER ARCHIVE) BLU-RAY...The long awaited Blu-ray release of the all time 50's classic finally came this year thanks to WA, and it looks fantastic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
And there you are, more of the Top 70 releases of 2018. I hope every one has a great New Year and I'll be posting the final Top 10 releases next Saturday which will be the first Saturday of 2019.
