Each year dozens of encounters with upright canids are reported in North America. These beings often behave in alarming ways with many reports of a beast that is aggressive, ghastly, and disturbing. While many theorize that the Dogman is some sort of unidentified species of animal, others believe that this creature is something else. Of the many possible terrifying ends to these encounters, the most shocking are the ones which possibly resulted in death. A woman jogging on a country road in rural Ohio goes missing. A man hiking into the mountains of Alaska turns up mutilated beyond recognition, his face mangled by something that seems to defy the natural predatory animals of the region. Thousands of people go missing in the United States each year, and the latest film from Small Town Monsters and director Seth Breedlove allows witnesses and a few brave investigators to present their theory that perhaps a real werewolf is behind some of these disturbing disappearances.Read more “Tuesday, July 5, 2022: American Werewolves Premieres Today on VOD”

The group pays no heed, though, and when the vampire shows up, it sees that the most beautiful member of the troupe looks lke the woman he once loved in real life. Things spiral downhill from there. Lots of gothic thrills in this well-made chiller.

What a great Euro-horror film this is! Five people travel by car through a howling storm. They end up in a nearby forgotten, shunned inn. It is occupied by a strange man and his wizened, clairvoyant mother. A séance ensues that shows in flashback the travelers’ involvement in sexual depredations, crime, and murder. The clairvoyant tells them that the murdered man will soon return to exact his revenge. Then, in an amazing climax, the proceedings come to a catastrophic ending—all to the sound of Pigozzi’s maniacal laughter. Pigozzi (aka Alan Collins) is superb as the sinister innkeeper who knows far more about his guests than he should. Fuchsberger is also good in a bad guy/victim role. But it’s Koch who nearly steals the show as Fuchsberger’s wanton wife. Director Margheriti develops a foreboding sense of impending doom.
STARRING: Joachim Fuchsberger, Marianne Koch, Luciano Pigozzi, Helga Anders, Claudio CamasoRead more “The Unnaturals (1969) Available July 5”
