Movie Fan Man: Cinema Connoisseur

Traditional, Artsy, Genre-Within-Genre: A Little Something for Everyone

Blog News #5

Hello to all my followers, those I’m following, and all curious visitors,

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a news announcement, but being it’s the middle of the month and towards the end of the year, I figured it was a good time for an update.

The current Cycle of the Melodic Gialli mini season will be going on pause after Sept. 25, and resuming in January 2020. The season will pause with Luigi Bazzoni’s Giornata Nera per l’Ariete (The Fifth Cord) starring Franco Nero and resume with Riccardo Freda’s A Doppia Faccia (Double Face).

October will soon be upon us, and after the fun and fairly nice overall response to The Month of Hammer Horror last year, I decided to do a new special this year I’ll be calling Euro Witches & Madmen, which will look at European filmmakers take on the Witch and Mad Scientist sub-genre of Horror. The day I begin I’ll also be including a page for comments to the films, something I might do with future reviews. I’m still waiting for two titles in the mail, but I have the majority of what I’ll be showcasing in the special. Towards the end of the month I’ll add a picture of the films I’ll be looking at.

After Euro Witches and Madmen is completed I’ll be taking the months of November and December off, so October will be my epic end to the year. My parents and I have been in New Jersey for almost two years now, but our Ocean City house is more suited to Summer living, so we bought a house in Somers Point New Jersey (only seven minutes from Ocean City!) for the Winter months, and we’ll be moving in during October. I’ll be doing a lot of sprucing up in both by new bedroom and first time ever Man Cave (something I’ve dreamed about for a while now) and I want to focus on giving my space my personal touch. I’ll still watching and writing up on films, but I won’t be posting anything until January 2020. I definitely send out Holiday greetings, click likes and leave comments for write-ups, and if any special restorations come up I might mention them, but overall, I’ll be on Holiday break.

If there’s anything you’d like me to look at for future write-ups, please feel to post in the comments section, and be sure to keep them pre-1990’s if possible, I’ll make exceptions here or there to the rule if its a film I’ve seen and liked. Take care all.
