The Thing That Couldn’t Die (1958)

What do you get when you mix one part “Evil Dead” and one part “Bonanza”? You get “The Thing that Couldn’t Die”! A horror (?) film set on a ranch that apparently doesn’t grow or raise anything. I must say that the film works on a cheesy level and is quite entertaining.

My favourite part is when a large branch falls onto a victim and the gang is trying to figure out what caused it. The goofy heroine concludes that it must be an “evil wind”. HAHAHAHAHA! Its lines like this that make Dr. Evil’s (Austin Powers) comments about evil petting zoos hilarious.

This is one of those movies that will keep you laughing at all the classic horror cliches and poor special effects.
