I haven’t had the pleasure of watching Herschell Gordon Lewis’ A Taste of Blood yet, but from what I’ve read I think I need to take a look — and fast. Seems somebody has accidentally ingested some blood of Dracula, who is now seeking revenge on the descendents of those who done the Transylvanian Count in. That’s right: an unofficial sequel to Bram Stoker’s novel that clocks in at an astonishing 2 hours! No wonder it’s referred to as Lewis’ Gone with the Wind. As for our second feature, I’ve only seen the MST3k’d version of Teen-Age Strangler a/k/a Terror in the Night but I always kinda dug the hometown auteur flavor of the proceedings. It’s clumsy and a bit kooky, but it also has a bit of a nasty streak, making it worth a look unmolested — if you can find it.

FTLOF - Film Noir 01Reduced Size with Titles

This post is part of my rehash and continuation of the For the Love of Film Noir Blogathon originally held back in February of 2011. Thus and so, we will be heading down the rain-soaked streets and neon-drenched back alleys of Noirville again for the entire month of March. And along with all the old material migrating over from the old site, we’ll also be scattering around a lot of new stuff as well. Also of note, we’ll be posting them in chronological order to show how the genre evolved and progressed from the 1940′s through the late ’50s. And as an added bonus, I’ll be posting some vintage adverts to stuff I’ve always associated with the genre — cigarettes, booze and fashionable ladies.

“Nobody commits a murder just for
the experiment of committing it.”

“Nobody except us.”

 

 

 

 

 

This post is part of the For the Love of Film Blogathon, a new age telethon to raise funds for The National Film Preservation Foundation to help bring The White Shadow (a/k/a White Shadows), an early silent film that a certain master of suspense did just about everything for except direct — assistant director, screenwriter, film editor, production designer, art director, and set decorator, to the streaming masses and help defray the costs of adding a new musical soundtrack.
