More lost TeeVee action here at the Hex. A Houdini biopic starring Adrienne Barbeau, Paul Michael Glaser, Bill Bixby and Sally Struthers and....Peter Cushing as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle......just wow. This movie set off an epidemic of school children brutally punching each other in the stomach the day after it originally aired! Not as much mysticism as we would have liked but a fun find nonetheless. Have fun with this very hard to find lost gem! "Speak in Yiddish so I know itís you!!!!"

Runtime: 96 min
Star Wars Buried!!!! Two movies come to mind with that phrase...Sorcerer and this...Fox had originally lined up Sorcerer for an Oscar. Whups. Don't EVER go drinking with William Friedkin. Earful. However, the saddest part of this tale is Kevin Conner's fantastic masterpiece Warlords of Atlantis...just lost in the shuffle. Honing his skills from Land that Time Forgot and At The Earth's Core...shit, well...just watch it! A movie both ahead and behind its own time. Absolute!, motherfucker!
Journey to the Unknown - "Jane Brown's Body" (1969)
Co-produced by Hammer Films
Director: Alan Gibson
Starring: David Buck, Lewis Fiander, Yvonne Gilan, Clive Graham

...more Journey to the Unknown greatness, this one based on a short story by Cornell "Rear Window" Woolrich and directed by Alan Gibson who also brought us the "Somewhere in a Crowd" episode and twilight Hammer classics like Dracula A.D. and The Satanic Rites of Dracula. Jane gasses herself and the good doctor brings he back to life and...and have we mentioned how awesome the deserted carnival opening sequence is? That's what the inside of our brain feels like right now...

Super preachy tone that will make you immediately head for the nearest mind/mood altering substance in the house....kick ass music and a rockin' beach party do little to dissuade. God forbid your pill hangover adversely affects your miniature bowling game. Are these films actually designed to make us all do more drugs? Shit...

aka Evil Heritage
Director: Norman J. Warren
Starring: Michael Gough, Yorke
Martin Potter, Candace Glendenning, Barbara Kellerman
Runtime: 86 min
Ah yes, the Satanic rituals here are so very tasty...so British...so seventies...and exactly the way we remember them: sexy, bloody and a guy with a goat head. And the rest of the flick is surprisingly good too.
A young girl is caught up in a devil cult run by her evil uncle and cousin. She can trust no one and even people she thought were dead come back to haunt her.
aka L'Isola degli uomini pesce, Screamers, Something Waits in the Dark

Genius. Atlantis...Bigfoot...Barbara Bach...Mayans...1979. 'Nuff Said--A.W.E.S.O.M.E...until you turn around...and see...Hey, did that guy just call your Dad "jackoff"? This film is the embodiment of the Independent Order of the Hex Cosmic.

aka Alice Goes to Acidland
Director: John Donne
Starring: Colleen Murphy, Buxx Banner, Patty Roberts
Well, it sure seems like a long time since we posted any acid films.....Lo-and-behold!!!! The wildest, swingin' nudie cutie we have ever seen! Not only that, but the most 'naked' example of the sexploitation as scare film - so the squares can justify getting a little kinky too! This one starts off as your standard N.C. but with acid and pot standing in for the booze......then it switches from B&W to color and the shenanigans really kick into 'high' gear!!!! Its well made, clever, sexy as hell...and a Swiftian tribute to Charles Dodgson in the vaguest of ways (at least in our minds)!
While we are on the subject - we HIGHLY recommend Anna Biller's genius swingin' 60s tribute - Viva (Unrated Edition). You will never find a more detailed love letter to the genre....
