Welcome to Schlocktober.

It’s October, the holy month of all horror writers and fans alike. A tradition I started a few years ago was watching a whole lot of horror films during the month that ends with Halloween. Last year, I tried the feat of 31 movies in 31 days, and failed miserably. This year I’m just shooting for 31 movies. So far I’ve gotten to one. I also that this year, I’m going to view sclock. Forget the good classics. I’m going for the campy, outrageous and plain dumb.

So, I started off with the 1972 classic, Blacula. His bite is out of sight.  Yes indeed. This is blaxpolation at its finest. All the Afros you can throw a stake at, and the greenest Honky vampires you will ever see. To follow up a documentary about the Beast of Geveudan in France. The acting is schlocky. After that an oldy goldy from the 1930s with a white Sambo character called the 13th Guest. I have no idea what it was about I had a hard time following it. I caught the great Vincent Price in House of Wax on AMC. Wonderful Camp.
