Five Easy Questions: ARCH HALL JR.

ARCH HALL JR. is that rare combination – a living legend and a nice guy. This cool cat is still swingin’ forty odd (yes, very odd) years since his debut in The Choppers (1961) written by his legendary father, Arch Hall Sr., and cementing his own legacy as a drive-in deity with the timeless gems Eegah (1962), Wild Guitar (1962)  The Sadist (1964), The Nasty Rabbit (1964), and Deadwood ’76 (1965).

CYXORK 7 , the hilarious and inventive movie about making a movie in a fading sci-fi franchise, coming May 15 from Monogram Releasing, is one of the Best Movies of 2008 you’ve never heard of, according to Popmatters and according to me, too. Prolific and amiable writer/director JOHN HUFF gave us the lowdown on this artful satire, and much more… Will the Thrill:  You wrote 3 episodes of the classic series Kolchak: the Night Stalker (“The Sentry” “Mr. R.I.N.G”. and “Bad Medicine”); can you talk a little about your experiences with that show (one of my personal favorites)? JH: Thanks, Will, it was one of the luckiest experiences of my...

New Jersey’s Elysee Productions has unearthed two tawdry, torrid treasures from the salt mines of sleazy drive-in cinema history: the complete and original scores for Al Adamson’s notorious monster-match Dracula vs. Frankenstein (1971) and Eddie Romero’s equally infamous tropical terror Mad Doctor of Blood Island (1969). The former was originally released by Adamson’s decadent drive-in distribution company Independent International Pictures. William Lava’s bombastic but suitably sinister score for Dracula vs Frankenstein includes a remix of the title track by producer Sam Sherman. Tito Arevalo‘s sweaty score for the Filipino frightfest Mad Doctor of Blood Island, from Hemisphere Pictures, the centerpiece of Eddie Romero’s “Blood Island” trilogy about horrific experiments on...
