The Leech Woman 01/04/20

Scream Factory

Why do we like horror and monster movies that routinely get labeled as ‘bad?’  Because many of them have great story ideas and look at the world from odd, warped viewpoints. Back when ‘warped’ wasn’t a prerequisite for ALL filmed entertainment (my exaggeration) this murderous rejuvenation tale could be appreciated as something unusual, even quirky. Jeez, the characters are even nastier than the people I know!  Lovely Coleen Gray takes a chance on a downmarket Universal programmer and proves how well she can carry a movie, even through several dubious horror make-ups. With Grant Williams, Estelle Hemsley, Gloria Talbott, Phillip Terry, Kim Hamilton, and John Van Dreelen. On Blu-ray from Scream Factory.
