Caltiki, the Immortal Monster (1959, Italy / USA) Arrow Video Dual Format Blu-ray/DVD Review

Caltiki, the Immortal Monster (1959, Italy / USA) Arrow Video Blu-ray Review

It was very on trend in the 1950s for movies concerning blob-like creatures, with a taste for human flesh. There was The Blob, obvs, The Quatermass Xperiment, X the Unknown, and a whole slew of others, all squelching around, trying to cause as much chaos as inhumanly possible. Spotting the trend, director Riccardo Freda jumped on the amorphous bandwagon, with his sci-fi horror Caltiki, the Immortal Monster.

“Crawling, crushing colossus of terror!”

The Films That Made Me: Rear Window (1954, USA)

The Films That Made Me: Rear Window (1954, USA)

Rear Window was the movie that introduced the young Ren to the perverse genius of Alfred Hitchcock. I remember as a child, being irresistibly drawn into the voyeuristic position of his protagonist and fascinated by the goings-on in the windows he was observing. Hitchcock claimed not to care about the subject, morality or message in his movies, but only about the manner in which his stories were told, but his attraction to the psychological was one of his most obvious storytelling strengths.

“Through his rear window and the eye of his powerful camera he watched a great city tell on itself, expose its cheating ways…and murder!”

Ranking the Best of the Classic Universal Monsters

Ranking the Best of the Classic Universal Monsters

Half of what makes a good horror film is a good monster. Without a believable, and ultimately scary, antagonist there’s not much for the audience to latch onto. No film studio – not even the amazing Hammer Films – has ever been able to hold a candle to the classics, and probably wouldn’t have ever existed without the Universal monster movies of the 1930s and 40s.

“Not since the beginning of time has the world beheld terror like this!”
