Old Mother Riley’s Ghosts (1941)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
19h ago
Old Mother Riley was an odd one to say the least. An Irish washerwoman (with barely discernible accent) played by an English man (Arthur Lucan) with a grown-up daughter played, in the early part of the characters career, by Lucan’s wife Kitty McShane, Old Mother Riley was a screeching harridan born in the British music ..read more

Things to Come (1976)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
2d ago
Although he anticipated the sexual revolution in works like Anticipations of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress upon Human Life and Thought (1901) and was something of an advocate for what would become known as “free love”, one has to wonder quite what H.G. Wells would have made of Derek Todd taking the name ..read more

The Exorcist: Believer (2023)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
3d ago
David Gordon Green didn’t endear himself to many horror fans over his (mis)handling of his Halloween sequel trilogy, Halloween (2018), Halloween Kills (2021) and Halloween Ends (2022) so the news that he was going to take on another beloved genre property, The Exorcist (1973), in a new trilogy was met with considerable apprehension. And it ..read more

Napoleon-gaz (1925)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
2w ago
Semyon Timoshenko’s Russian science fiction film is one of the more obscure offerings on The EOFFTV Review, a film that doesn’t seem to have been widely exported – certainly there’s no known official English language title, the original translating as Napoleon Gas. It survives in a frustratingly incomplete print, with certainly the last few minutes ..read more

Valley of the Zombies (1946)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
2w ago
It’s hard to tell if producers Republic intended Valley of the Zombies to be a comedy. It’s certainly very funny at times, but it was supposed to be that way? Who knows. The title is certainly misleading – there’s no valley and only one zombie, and a strange one at that, more of a mad ..read more

Count Dracula (1970)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
2w ago
Original title: Nachts, wenn Dracula erwacht For many years, Jesus Franco’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel was touted as one of the more faithful takes on the novel. And while it’s true that it includes much that has been ignored or skipped over by all other versions, its claims to verisimilitude crumble at even the ..read more

C.H.U.D. (1984)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
3w ago
Time has been kind to Douglas Cheek’s C.H.U.D. First viewed in the 1980s, it seemed disappointing, rather tame in fact compared to some of the other horror and science fiction films made around the same time (C.H.U.D. went into production in the summer of 1983, three years after pre-production work first started, and had a ..read more

Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
3w ago
People often complain, with some justification, that there’s very little originality in film and television these days and hasn’t been for a while. Which makes it all the more galling that film as wildly inventive as Don Coscarelli’s Bubba Ho-Tep, based on the novella of the same name by Joe R. Lonsdale, was so hard ..read more

Hillbillys in a Haunted House (1967)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
1M ago
A throwback to the old dark house chillers of the 1920, 30s and 40s, the grammatically incorrect Hillbillys in a Haunted House (surely it should be “Hillbillies“?) was the last theatrical film directed by Jean Yarbrough, a prolific if not exactly distinctive director who made 132 films and television episodes in a 35-year career. It ..read more

Revolt of the Zombies (1936)
The EOFFTV Review
by Kevin Lyons
1M ago
From the people who brought you White Zombie (1932) – brothers Victor and Edward Halperin, director and producer respectively – came this sort-of-but-not-really follow-up. It was originally conceived as a legitimate sequel but the rights to the original film got mired in copyright claims and so it became a stand-alone film, although Bela Lugosi’s eyes ..read more
