UPDATED OLDER REVIEWS 2022

These may not be completely new but they've been significantly redone / re-written. Typically, this involves one or more of the following: adding multiple paragraphs to review, fixing wonky grammar (and trying to reign in my unfortunate affinity for run-on sentences), having to reformat the entire review due to a glitch, problems with my picture host deleting photos and / or finally adding screen caps and alternate posters to formerly bare reviews.

- Conquest (1983; Lucio Fulci) Italy, Mexico, Spain [new screen caps]
- Third Eye, The (Il terzo occhio) (1966; Mino Guerrini) Italy [screen caps + posters added]
