Speaking of classic games, Castevania is coming to Netflix July 7th.

Crunchyroll is a pretty decent site for streaming anime, lots of stuff free in 480p, you pay a fee for HD and dubbed. I subscribe for a month every year or so to get my fix.

Watched "Dig Two Graves" starring Ted Levine on Netflix last night. A bit of a supernatural thriller. Good 1977 period piece.

Blood Drive - Series premiere June 14th on Syfy channel.

Trailer and more info here: http://www.syfy.com/blooddrive/about

The official trailer is also on YouTube but it's too NSFW to link to it here. I don't know how they are going to get away with showing this on TV.

I see a few of you posting on the Covenant thread and that is cool! All of the naysayers on this site will be buying the movie on BD or 4KBD just to see it at home!

Where else can you watch it? I checked Hulu but the only thing listed under the Syfy channel are 12 Monkeys and Battlestar Galactica.

Canadian Syfy aka Space. I was shocked to bear the f bombs and thought I was hearing things. I am pro f bomb however so I moved on instead of starting a change for org.

Supernatural season 12 was added to Netflix's lineup today. I skipped watching the last few episodes of the season after showing a friend who is a fan of "The Flash" how it looks on Netflix. Worth the wait and no ads.

This is a typical example of what I mean by those "coming and going" lists not being in any way complete. "Supernatural" was only listed as "coming soon" on the May list with no date indicated.

Watched a couple pretty good oldies this week...



I'm sure this film has been mentioned here before.

Cult of the Cobra is one of Universal's better low-budget 50's thrillers, about some GIs returning home after becoming entangled with a malicious group of "Lamians" (aka snake-worshippers). This was one of several genre pictures which helped to cement Faith Domergue's reputation as one of the queens of "B" SF/horror movies during the 1950's.



After making Cult, she went on to do a number of other movies and TV shows in the genre, including Uni's This Island Earth, Ray Harryhausen's It Came from Beneath the Sea (not one of her best imo), and also some giallo pics later in her career.



Domergue's last performance, in 1974, was an early example of "meta-horror" called The House of Seven Corpses. In it she plays (what else) an actress making a B-horror movie...


This is low-budget camp at its best, or worst, depending on your POV...

Sounds like Daryl was describing 'It Follows' Otherwise a nice post, loved the poster art. Sounds like current horror film makers could learn a thing or two by watching some of the older B films.
