martin a Dubbed Italian film that is hard to follow, and somewhat boring Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Typical and generic, but not too bad. The monster doesn't appear much, and frankly there isn't much to it. The characters are fairly bland, and the plot isn't too exciting. Decent atmosphere and sets though. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Mill Creek's 50 Movie Pack: Chilling Classics Reviews THE BLANCHEVILLE MONSTER [1964]: One of many numerous 1950 s to 1960s gothic features; this is a neat Gothic thriller set in 1884 France. This Italian made shocker sees a young woman of a wealthy family and her University Friends stay at her Mansion. The home is run by her Brother who informs her that their dead father isn't dead but gone mad. However the twist is the fact due to a family curse the father will try to kill her by her 21st birthday. Slow to start with, decent acting & dubbing and crisp Black and White cinematography makes this a decent gothic thriller. Despite being just plain average, its worth your time to view if it appears on late night T.V. My rating for this film is a solid 60% for this movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This film and a lot of the cast were unfamiliar to me, and I'm a horror fanatic, so I assume that most of you never heard of it. It is reminiscent of other gothic horror films, but I say that in the best of terms. The settings are cold and sterile which adds to the creepiness. It starts off a little slow with Emily returning from school, but it's kind of cool because everyone else is acting so weird and you only know as much as she does. Keeping the viewer in the dark as to what is going on, puts you into the lead character's position. Then, when you think the strangeness has been explained, suddenly the cast starts acting odd again. You are never put at ease for the heroine's safety and everything about the ending was pretty surprising. Suspenseful horror movies, and old Twilight Zone episodes, can be fun to watch when you don't know why everyone is acting so strange. You and perhaps the lead character are the only ones who aren't in on the joke or riddle or curse in the case of the Blancheville Monster. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Plodding horror of young girl succumbing to a mostly unexplained family curse which, I believe, turns out to be a case of hypnosis. Not much to recommend, has a little atmosphere but time has not been too kind on this. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Not the greatest horror film of all time, but for a B-Movie it's not too bad. Drags a little in the middle but finishes nicely.
