What I watched in February

SAVAGE GUNS (1971)- 3 (poor spaghetti western)
ON DANGEROUS GROUND (1952)- 8 (amazing noir/romance mix) (rewatch)
KING KONG (1976)- 5 (so much wrong- so much fun- cheesy madness)
RED SUN (1971)- 5 (not bad but not good- Bronson, Mifune and Delon deserved better)
PLANET OF THE APES (1968)- 10 (rewatch)
ADIOS, SABATA (1970)- 8 (great spaghetti with Yul Brenner)
THE MAN WHO WOULDN’T DIE (1942)- 6 (fun Michael Shayne mystery)
THE WITCH (1966)- 7
CONQUEST OF THE PLANET OF THE APES (1972)- 7 (unrated/pre-release version)
A DRAGONFLY FOR EACH CORPSE (1974)- 3 (silly, silly Naschy giallo but Erica Blanc is mucho lovely)
OUTLANDER (2009)- 7 (well done Viking/alien/monster film- if you know what I mean)
MY BLOODY VALENTINE (1981)- 6 (uncut DVD- my first viewing)
EYE OF THE DEVIL (a.k.a. 13) (1966)- 8
NIGHTMARE IN BLOOD (1978)- 6 (low budget, tongue in cheek throwback to classic horror films- fun if not great)
DR. GIGGLES (1992)- 2 (well photographed crap)
RICCO THE MEAN MACHINE (1973)- 6 (sleazy crime film)
AND GOD SAID TO CAIN….(1970)- 6 (fascinating spaghetti western)
FRIDAY THE 13TH (2009)- 2 (how can a slasher film be this damned boring?)
SHE-WOLVES OF THE WASTELAND (1987)- 1 (poorly directed, low budget post apocalyptic crap)
NO PLACE TO HIDE (1981)- 6 (TV movie from Jimmy Sangster and John Llewelyn Moxley)
FREDDY VS. JASON (2003)- 4 (rewatch) (bad, but fun/bad)
HIS NAME WAS JASON (2008)- 7 (Friday the 13th documentary)
THE MAGUS (1968)- 6 (not satisfying but fascinating)
DAMNATION ALLEY (1977)- 3 (weak post apocalyptic tale- I need to read the source novel)
EYEBALL (1975) – 8 (excellent giallo)

And odd month to say the least. Two of the five original Planet of the Apes films; a couple of Friday the 13th movies; two post apocalyptic movies; a lot of EuroTrash; and the best alien & viking vs. monster movie ever! Or would that be the only alien & viking vs. monster movie ever?
