Decades of Horror: The 1970s

Beginning in 2014, Santos Ellin Jr (The Black Saint) and Doc Rotten travel back in time to the 1970s to revisit, recap and review all their favorite classics – and not-so-classic – films of the decade. Films like Blacula, The Brood, Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things, The Car and The Incredible Melting Man are among the list that also include better known films such as The Omen, Halloween, The Exorcist and Jaws. All the greats, the crap, the exploitation and the grindhouse masterpieces are set to get scrutinized and adorned by Doc and the Black Saint – and some of their closest and newest friends.

  1. Nice, caught Incredible Melting Man and look forward to The Brood. I like this series because I haven’t seen some of these films- like IMM. I suggest Phase IV for a future episode….

    1. John,

      Thank you for your feedback. Incredible Melting Man and The Brood are some fantastic 70’s horror films. And I like your suggestion for Phase IV, a film I have not seen since waaaaay back in the day.

      Santos and I are looking forward to returning to this series soon and on a regular bases. We both are huge fans of horror, Seventies horror in particular.

      Thank you for writing in and keep a look out for more groovy 70s content.
