Dig it, sucka
I love this movie. When I began renting exclusively horror movies in the late eighties I’d rent movies like The Seven Brothers Meet Dracula and Monster Club and The House That Dripped Blood… and eventually I realized they were all by the same director, Roy Ward Baker. What stands out in his fillms to me is the colors. He goes for some really bold color choices. Monster Club is a funny movie. The musical interludes betw2een the vignettes are pretty damn snappy f you’ve heard them a hundred times, and I have. The stories are good. The dippy costumes are effective and fun. I saw it hosted by Elvira Mistress of the Dark and that made a lot of difference but it’s a good movie with or without her breastesses.

Affectionate last-gasp attempt at a British horror anthology
Following Amicus’ sad demise in the middle of the 1970s, producer Milton Subotsky used some of the short horror story rights he owned to make one last-ditch attempt at a horror anthology. Utilising the cream of acting talent and bringing experienced director Roy Ward Baker back into the fold, THE MONSTER CLUB was to be possibly the last of the old-wave horror films. Surrounded by the likes of HALLOWEEN, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and Friday the 13th, it sank without trace, which is somewhat sad. While THE MONSTER CLUB is undoubtedly a cheesy, unintentionally funny, and incredibly dated movie – more dated than all of the earlier Amicus films put together – it should have a place in the heart of anyone who has affection for the type of old-fashioned horror movies that it seeks to emulate.

Things kick off in great fashion, though, with not one but two old-timer horror stars appearing together! From out of the shadows comes an aged Vincent Price, playing a vampire (for the only time in his career) who puts the bite on John Carradine. If Price is looking old, Carradine’s looking positively mummified! In an amusing bit of self-referencing, Carradine plays real-life British horror author R. Chetwynd-Hayes, upon whose work the three stories that make up this film are based. Hayes was reportedly horrified with the result but I find it fairly successful. In any case, Price and Carradine make their way to the Monster Club of the title, where a bunch of goons in joke-shop monster masks are busy disco dancing to a number of incredibly cheesy songs. Most of the bands you’ve never heard of, although UB40 do make an appearance.

In the old days, I remember the wraparound segments of horror anthologies to sometimes be better than the stories themselves. Who can forget Cushing’s tarot-dealer on the train in DR TERROR’S HOUSE OF HORRORS, or the five men meeting spooky Ralph Richardson in TALES FROM THE CRYPT? The cheesy nightclub scenes on display here are a far cry from that kind of finesse, but they do hold a nostalgic charm for a time long since vanished. Highlights include a surreal strip tease with some great special effects, some truly awful singing and the eye-searing sight of Price and Carradine boogieing away to some ’80s pop tunes. Unforgettable.

As for the stories, they’re a mixed bag, but none of them are as effective as they want to be. The first story of the Shadmock is the most traditional, featuring a kind of vintage E.C. Comics-style vengeance being meted out on some unpleasant characters. Simon Ward is hissably nasty, while the guy playing the Shadmock is memorably weird. It’s all a little too po-faced for my liking, but it DOES have the scariest moment in the film – the climax – and a great melted cat moment. The second story goes for all-out comedy as vampire Richard Johnson (fresh from making ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS in Italy) finds himself up against vampire killer Donald Pleasence, going for extreme ham here. Britt Ekland’s hanging around, but she seems to have aged loads since THE WICKER MAN seven years before. The twist ending is groan-worthy, it’s that poor, so this is one just to watch the actors.

The final story has the most potential, but it’s wasted because of the lack of atmosphere and suspense. A brash American film producer (played by Stuart Whitman, no stranger to B-movie trash) scouts out a location in the British countryside, only to fall foul of some ghouls presided over by the ever-great Patrick Magee. Too many scenes are weak imitations of zombie attacks in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and all of the other zombie flicks popular during this decade, and the singular lack of bloodshed makes them seem tame. A very young Lesley Dunlop puts in an awful performance as a teenage girl with a child’s mind – touching innocence or laughable naivety? In the end the emphasis is on middling action scenes, completed by another twist ending which is so obvious you can see it coming a mile away.

So there we have THE MONSTER CLUB. Yes, in some ways it’s a bad film, made with scant regard for true scares. In some ways you feel it’s aimed at a child audience; this is the kind of horror that seeks to emulate the Universal classics of the 1940s or the Forrest J. Ackermann brand of horror journalism. Imagine a ride through a cheesy ’80s ghost train and you’ll have some idea of what’s on offer here. It’s not good, but it does have some charm seen in a modern light, and I loved it all the same.
