They didn't produce films.

FVI produced and co-produced: Grizzly (1976), Day of the Animals (1977), Search and Destroy (1979), The Dark (1979), The Visitor (1979), Kill or Be Killed (1980), Kill and Kill Again (1981), The Incubus (1981), Texas Lightning (1981), Pieces (1982), They Call Me Bruce? (1982), The Pod People (1983), Vigilante (1983), The House on Sorority Row (1983), Mortuary (1983), The Power (1984), Alley Cat (1984), and Mutant (1984).

Ok, now what?

My bad.

Ah- those movies were mediocre at best, that's what.
Why you would want that tripe to return is beyond me, when we got so much made for streaming tripe on Tubi now.

Without Christopher Lee or Peter Cushing? And without producers and screenwriters Milton Subotsky and Max Rosenberg? It will be in name only, I'm afraid.

give it a chance, please. new stars are born every day.
don't EVEN...EVER!

ooooh. hmmm. arrr. well... PIECES, and DAY OF THE ANIMALS are stone cold badmovie classics imo. VISITOR and HOUSE IN SORORITY ROW are solid. I akso have a soft spot for MORTUARY being Christopher George's last ever film (I think), plus it's grown on  me a bit too

just my 2 cents not trying to stoke flames...

POD PEOPLE is utter crap tho  :bouncegiggle:
please do not mock my potato.

PIECES I like. DAY OF THE ANIMALS is good if only for Leslie Neilson's stellar performance. The rest- blah.

he is such a nasty guy in that film... pure evil!

it also has the most 1970s 'person falling to their death' scene, in the whole of the 70s   :buggedout: :teddyr:

Kill and Kill Again has the first use of what the Wachowskis called "bullet time" in The Matrix 😊

I'm not excited for this, but I'm open to being pleasantly surprised.

Well, the picture certainly seems to have the right tone.

Interesting,.. seems it will be a portmanteau (yay) - also referenced Steve coogan's tv show DR TERRIBLE'S HOUSE OF HORRIBLE, which was very underrated I thought. The episode called AND NOW THE FEARING was the Amicus tribute in that, not the whole series like the guardian article states. (It was also 2000s, not 90s... tsk!)

I gotta' jump in to rep for THE VISITOR, THE INCUBUS, VIGILANTE, and MUTANT.

The kickstarter looks to have raised almost twice the target fund level.
