Fantasia 2018: ‘Satan’s Slaves’ Brings Visual Flair to a Horrific Tale

Donald Pleasance as a science-crazed botany professor? Tom Baker as a seven-foot-tall giant with facial tumors? And this is really a real movie, for real? Sign me up for ‘The Freakmaker,’ post-haste!

Prime in the Dustbin: ‘Mausoleum’ (1983)
