Now here...from Kino-Lorber, the rare film THE GHOST OF SIERRA DE COBRE (1964). Beautifully filmed by Joseph Stefano (THE OUTER LIMITS) and Robert Stevens (ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS). Originally intended to be a pilot movie for a TV series called THE HAUNTED. It was re-packaged as a feature release.

Similar to THE OUTER LIMITS or THE TWILIGHT ZONE, but with more of a horror twist. A woman installs a phone in a crypt for which she is to be interred upon her death. But the phone starts ringing from the...empty crypt. Martin Landau, an investigator, is called in. Scary, dramatic and filmed with thick atmosphere. A rediscovered wonder.

Neighborhood Kid's Monster Summit and Watching Late Night

It was infectious...the love of monster movies my neighborhood buddies had back in 1970. I was eleven and all us neighborhood kids couldn't help talking comic books, The Hulk, and what the TV Guide told us would be on that weekend....what monster movies!

My friend Scott had his dad's army tent up in the back yard and we convened for a Thursday late afternoon summit. There I was, myself, Dennis, Chris, Billy and Scott. We had lost a member, Brett, who moved out to the Midwest.

Scott had an Aurora Hunchback model in the tent, recently painted. Billy had a DC Comic I had never seen before on hand. "The Creeper" with art by Steve Ditko who I knew from Marvel Comic's Spider-Man and Dr. Strange. I wasn't as familiar with the DC line...but, this looked cool. Chris had one of those gory black-and-white comic horror mags that were poor brothers to CREEPY or EERIE.

I had the TV Guide. I had spent the past hour circling, with a big red chisel marker from my dad, all the monster movies that were on for a week. The cool damp, mildewy smell from the thick canvas tent permeated the air as I read out loud through the movies. Late on Saturday night, Channel 9, had a listing for SLAUGHTER OF THE VAMPIRES! Now, that sounded awesome. And , something most of our parents wouldn't want us watching. That made it a mission.

We all vowed to try to stay up and see that movie. I think I was the only one able to report on the following week that I had managed to see it. Mom, Dad and sister were all asleep, and there I was, after midnight watching an Italian vampire movie that started off with villagers pitch-forking a female vampire. Whoah. This was not for the weaker monster movie fans.

I kept the volume low on the television. If one of the parents woke up and came up, that TV would be shut off in a hurry. My report included, fangs, old castles, and creepy tunnels in a black and white world of the undead.

It was the days of close friends, endless summer days, and monster movies on TV that were real, anticipated events.

I have never seen SLAUGHTER OF THE VAMPIRES. In March 1984, I was set to stay until it started at 3:00 am. BUT that night, my son decided to get himself born!  I have not had the opportunity since.

-Frank Dello Stritto, TX

Ron, that was great to read about sneaking the viewing of Slaughter of the Vampires in late at night; I'm glad you succeeded.  No doubt the tension of possibly getting caught added to the drama.  You had recommended that title to me a year or so ago and I picked it up from you; enjoyed watching that one on a rainy Sat. night here.  Friend Michael Lederman told me he remembered seeing it on the NY station as well - ah, those NYC stations back then, pure monster kid bliss.
