Blancheville Monster: Terrible Movies #168
The Blancheville Monster is one of those low-budget period Italian dubbed jobs, where there's a dark, candle-illuminated old castle, and actors sit at grand dining room tables with spooky candelabras on them and their lips don't quite sync up with the dialogue, and lightning flashes and thunder cracks, and it's all very atmospheric; and the entire time you think, jeez, there's entirely too much plot and too many actors in this thing, and this movie wouldn't be half bad if they digitally removed all the actors and plot and junk, and just showed 90 minutes of an old spooky castle in a storm. Now, that would be a good flick, and I would watch the heck out of that. Sadly, this one isn't that movie, it's the other one. I watched it on Youtube, which has quite a selection of cruddy old horror films, much better than Netflix's current selection. You can watch it below.
