The Bogus Witch Project (2000)
Awful is a friendly and kind adjective
This movie made me want to write a haiku about it:
"An awful movie
torturing me to the end
very few laughs here!"
There is only one segment about this movie that I thought was truly funny (The Willie Witch Project), and unfortunately, you have to sit through most of the movie to see it. Having sharp pieces of bamboo inserted under my fingernails seemed more preferable.
Please avoid this movie and save your sanity!
Dark Shadows (1966)
I was a big fan of this gothic horror soap opera as a young lad, and was delighted to find out that MPI had released the episodes on DVD.
If I were to complain, I would have to say that it is a bit disappointing that the DVD's start rather late in the series (episode 210 to be exact), with the appearance of Barnabas Collins. This is fitting, however, since he brought the show such popularity, but it is a bit remiss that MPI didn't include the prior episodes on DVD.
That being said though, the show still is great, with terrific acting. Considering the fact that the actors filmed the episodes live, so a flub or two can be overlooked. It makes actors today seem a bit untalented, because they are allowed 20 takes (which we have to see in the end .. like in Home Improvements).
But actors like Jonathan Frid, John Karlen, David Selby, etc. make this show truly memorable (and made me join the DVD club, where I am now the proud owner of my own Barnabas Collins bobblehead) :)
I never did watch the remake of the Dark Shadows series when it came out, because I personally thought that no one could replace Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins. However, I might have to see it just to satisfy my own personal curiousity.
This is one of my all time favorites and I am glad that it is now on DVD.
