Double Feature – Young Frankenstein

Mel Brooks is a genius. He has two movies on my list, and one will be shared later this month. But not only are his movies hilarious, the man makes me laugh with little effort. In 1974, he came out with Young Frankenstein, a retelling of the Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. A humorous version. The movieContinue reading “Double Feature – Young Frankenstein”

Double Feature – Teen Witch

When this movie came out in 1989, I immediately fell in love with it. It was a teenage girl, who was not the most popular in school, but learns she is actually a witch! Louise Miller is almost 16, and the one thing she wants most is to kiss Brad Powell, and to not beContinue reading “Double Feature – Teen Witch”

Double Feature – Transylvania 6-5000

In 1985, the movies, the music, the fashion, were all awesome. This movie is fun, it is a comedy but embraces the classic movie monsters from Hollywood. Two tabloid reporters are dispatched to Transylvania to get the story of a Frankenstein reporting. Meeting a cast of characters in the small town, the two reporters discoverContinue reading “Double Feature – Transylvania 6-5000”

Double Feature – Rocky Horror Picture Show

Originally released in 1975, this movie is rated R, but I feel that it’s more PG-13, but maybe some violence in the movie requires it to be a higher rating. Regardless this is not a ‘Horror’ movie. It’s a cult classic that has catchy music and a very enthusiastic cult following as well. It’s justContinue reading “Double Feature – Rocky Horror Picture Show”

Double Feature – Monster House

Monster House is an animated movie from 2006, that takes place at the end of October. DJ and Chowder are best friends and believe that the house across the street from DJ is possessed.

One vampire movie is never enough. This is the family friendly version of a vampire movie. Little Vampire was originally released in 2000, and is rated PG. Young Tony Thompson has just moved to Scotland (A girl can hope to do that too) with his parents. And he’s bored, and his imagination starts working. HeContinue reading “Double Feature – Little Vampire”

Double Feature – Little Shop Of Horrors

Don’t let the title fool you! This isn’t a scary horror movie. It has a few intense moments for younger viewers, but overall it’s a good family movie. This would be described as a musical, but it has comedy, horror, romance, and science fiction all wrapped up in one amazing movie. Released in 1986 (ThereContinue reading “Double Feature – Little Shop Of Horrors”

Double Feature – Casper

For our double feature, we are offering the movie, Casper. A great October/Halloween family movie, rated PG. I remember when this movie first came out, everyone wanted to live in the haunted house and be friends with Casper. One of my favorite parts of the movie is at the beginning, a great little cameo ofContinue reading “Double Feature – Casper”

Movie – Interview with a Vampire

Today’s double feature starts with a movie that I had watched when it came out, and hated. I love Anne Rice, and her books are amazing, but the movie version of this book, I disliked entirely. But I watched it a couple more times, and began to appreciate the movie more, as I slowly realizedContinue reading “Movie – Interview with a Vampire”
