Things go 'worng' in sci-fi paradise


Sci-Fi

Following up 1973's hit "Westworld" was the less-successful 1976 sequel, "Futureworld."

Casting the Runes

Rent a 'Rune' with a view.


Horror

Rod Lott
I remember vividly when I first read "Casting the Runes," one of several suspense classics to pour from the pen of M.R. James, the master of the ghost story whose supernatural bent became a huge influence on H.P. Lovecraft. Just because the short story is old (1911) doesn't mean it wasn't chilling to read, and so it is with this 1979 presentation, an episode of the UK's ITV Playhouse anthology series.

Drive-In

Enjoy the show!


Comedy

Rod Lott
All but dead, the drive-in movie once was at the forefront of entertainment, as American as baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet. I can’t think of a film that bottles that nostalgia better than Drive-In, an obscure comedy worth hunting down.

The Seven-Per-Cent Solution

It's no mystery what makes this film great.


Comedy

Rod Lott
If there's one thing I love more than a good Sherlock Holmes movie, it's a vintage Alan Arkin performance, and 1976's The Seven-Per-Cent Solution provides both. Widely acclaimed upon its release, the film has become somewhat forgotten — here's hoping Shout! Factory's Blu-ray/DVD combo release will help reverse that.
