House of Long Shadows
Yet another movie featuring all three of this week's birthday boogie boys is House of Long Shadows. Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Vincent Price - PLUS the great John Carradine and... Desi Arnez Jr. Huh? Yep, you heard right... someone, somewhere, got all these horror icons together then figured it would be a good idea to give the lead role to Desi Arnez Jr. Yeeaaah, right. Made in 1983 it is a comedy with horror elements, kind of an old dark house mystery movie about a writer who accepts a dare that he can write a great horror novel in 24 hours. he heads to an abandoned mansion to write - and soon finds the mansion isn't as abandoned as he hoped.
Despite Desi the movie is still enjoyable, and worth seeing if only to see all these veteran horror actors on the screen together.
