Exactly one year ago on this day, Berkeley based RASPUTIN MUSIC AND MOVIES opened up a location in Stockton in the former TOWER RECORDS location at 6623 Pacific Avenue. While I miss TOWER RECORDS/VIDEO/BOOKS, RASPUTIN'S is a step up from TOWER. RASPUTIN has an EXCELLENT selection of DVD'S, VHS and LASERDISCS. It is the best thing to come to Stockton in a LLLOOONNNGGG TIME! Plus the fact, I don't have to travel to the Bay Area to these type of stores. RASPUTIN has an excellent selection of genre DVD's(Horror, Sci-Fi and Cult) for an affordable price! RASPUTIN replacing TOWER is like replacing your old beat up VW Bug with a Brand New Corvette!! Their website is www.rasputinmusic.com
Bob Wilkins shows a Grade Z not so classic from the director of ROBOT MONSTER! THE CAPE CANAVERAL MONSTERS is about aliens inhabiting the bodies of a couple killed in a auto accident. The aliens are trying to sabatoge the U.S. Space Program. Bob also shows an episode of THE OUTER LIMITS which is better than the main feature.

On this evening Bob showed the Jack Hill Classic TRACK OF THE VAMPIRE (1966) about a crazed artist who believes he is a vampire who kills young women then boils their bodies in a vat of water. This movie was also known as BLOOD BATH (not to be confused with the Joel Reed Horror Anthology from 1976) at the movie theatres and was double billed with QUEEN OF BLOOD. This is the TV title. Unfortunately, this movie is only available on a Budget PD DVD from MADACY in a horrid version.
