    The Egyptian vampire does sound like "Blood from the Mummy's Tomb". Peter Cushing was supposed to be in it, but had to pull out after the death of his wife.

    Yeah,apparently,after his wife died he didn't want to go on living.(According to Ingrid Pitt on the commentary for "The vampire Lovers")

    I read somewhere that after the death of his wife he was in such a state that he ran up and down the stairs in a bid to induce a heart attack. He also tried to ease the pain by throwing himself into his work and accepting whatever he was offered to keep busy.

Beware, there is a Demons 3: The Ogre, which has nothing to do with Demons/Demons 2, and is dreadful.
    brilliant film, the sequel is good too.

    Ooh I've seen Men Behind The Sun. I'm taking it's the HK horror you're talking about here. All about the Japanese army committing terrible atrocities on prisoners of war during WWII. It's a nasty movie all right. The controversial scene involving a cat being thrown into a room with starving rats is horrible to watch.

    By the way the scene involving the cat being eaten alive by rats is not all it seems, the cat was soaked in honey so the rodents were simply licking it off, as a reward after the filming he was treated to a nice fish supper.

    Oh really I didn't know that as according to a blog in 2008 from a Chinese website the cat and rats were actually killed on set.

    I remember watching, with my cousins, a pre-cert copy of the Microwave Massacre, which they'd hired from our local newsagents. It was a black comedy/horror film about a construction worker who acquires a taste for microwaved human flesh. This causes him to go on a killing spree and he zaps the dismembered limbs from his victims in an industrial-sized microwave before wrapping them in tin-foil, then sharing the mystery meat with his unsuspecting co-workers during lunch breaks. A cult classic apparently. Anyone remember that one?
