Monster of the Day #1673

Uhh…is that secret that is it IS a vampire tree? Because I’m pretty sure it is is. Man, the day before spoiler alerts, am I right?

And man, the “clutching horror.” Chills up the spine, man.

    Oh great, when I first saw this I thought the same thing as Ken… Talk about a minion of Jabootu…

    And Cameron Mitchell!!! I used to think the Red Letter Media guys were hard on him but honest to gosh on watching him in late ’70s/ early ’80s TV series like ‘Project UFO’ and ‘Magnum P.I.’ I’d swear they were right and he was sauced-up most of the time when he was acting…

    I heard that the secret was that it didn’t work and the actors had to move the branches themselves.

  • Flangepart

    Yeah…saw this first run at the old Southern Theater in Columbus. Nice work on the spoiler, poster guys!

    The vampire tree is ticklish?

  • Gamera977

    That he’s really undead Tabanga back from the dead!?!

    They could have called it: ‘From Hell It Came Back Again’.

    “The clutching horror” That is when a millennial thief steals a car and discovers it is stick shift.

    The terrifying secret of the Vampire Tree is that it’s can’t hurt you if you don’t walk under it, which is pretty terrifying if you are a Vampire Tree.

    I remember enjoying this flick, though the only copy I have is cropped and therefore rather diminished as a better-than-average group-of-people-trapped-in-the-castle-of-a-mad-scientist vehicle. The secret referenced in the ad art I figured to be the tree’s human connection. I’d like to watch the film again, but I’m hoping my next screening will be scope.

    I remember seeing this once many, many years ago. And unless my memory is playing me false it was surprisingly dull for a movie about a bloodsucking tree.

  • Mr. Rational

    I actually remember this same tree from several earlier films — mostly B-melodramas.

    Hmm. Guess it was trying to branch out.
