Secret Agent Fireball (1965)

There’s something about being a Secret Agent that people just love.
Danger, excitement, fast cars, alcoholic beverages, smooching and of course, being able to dress really, really well.

The degree of wish fulfillment is so high that you come out of a James Bond movie wanting to pick a fight with a stranger, just to see if you would win, then get the girl and have someone place a martini in your hand.
That’s the sign of a good Secret Agent movie.

Which brings us to this month’s movie.

UFO Target Earth (1974)

The Seventies were a weird dang time.  From Nixon, the Vietnam War,  the Zodiac Killer, Charles Manson, Disco, Jaws, Bigfoot and of course, Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

UFO Target Earth was made 3 years before Spielberg’s seminal flying saucer film, but it is light years ahead in incoherent plot, poor acting and Commodore 64 generated computer graphic weirdness.

You don’t have to be high to understand this movie, but it honestly might help.

Count Dracula’s Great Love (1974)

When it comes to vampires, and especially the King of the Vampires, Dracula, you want someone who will kick ass, take names, snap your neck like a pencil, and steal your girl.

If you look at Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan’s work on Marvel’s “The Tomb of Dracula” comic book from the 1970’s, you will see what I am talking about.

With this Dracula, however, we get someone a bit different.

Werewolf in a Girls Dormitory (1961)

Life is hard out there for werewolves.
Full moons, silver bullets, smelly fur unless you spend a lot on shampoo, and the whole killing other people thing as well.
If one were a werewolf, I would think that you would want to be a werewolf in a girls dormitory!
It’s full of young girls and would be the perfect place to hang out; filled with beautiful yummy things to kill!
It’s like a Golden Corral for lycanthropes!
