Christian Nyby or Howard Hawks? In the end, I really don’t care who directed our main feature as this sci-fi epic about a Killer Carrot from Outer Space is a whole six-pack of un-ironic awesomeness and my love for it knows no bounds. Nope, no gut-check or toiling or sweating over the answer when posed a query of ‘What’s your favorite movie of all time?’ No ifs, ands or buts, it’s The Thing from Another World. And with that, we have officially finished migrating all the ads over from the old blog. *whew* Fear not, there’s still lots and lots of new stuff to post for your viewing pleasure so stay tuned. And until then, Boils and Ghouls, keep watching the skies!

After an old war-time buddy meets a violent end, a brutish, tough as nails detective is soon neck-deep in a violent vendetta to repay an old debt to said friend, who saved his life during the war, by tracking down his killer and making them pay! Okay, when I think on the adapted adventures of that hard-boiled dick Mike Hammer, probably the last person I think of is Biff Elliot. But, he was the first to portray Mickey Spillane’s iconic private-eye in a movie that, alas, has never been released to home video in any format. I know I’m curious to see it, as it’s one of the few onscreen appearances of Margaret Sheridan as Hammer’s trusted secretary, Velda; and another B-Movie fave in Peggie Castle, who portrays the conniving psycho-analyst, Charlotte Manning. And, for the record, as much as I love Ralph Meeker in Kiss Me Deadly, my all time favorite version of Mike Hammer was Darren McGavin’s take in the old Mike Hammer TV show, something else that desperately needs a release for home-viewing as soon as possible.
