Horror Film Review: Bucket of Blood (dir. by Roger Corman)

Today, being Halloween Eve, seems like the perfect time to offer up one of my favorite public domain horror films — Roger Corman’s 1959 horror/comedy Bucket of Blood.  Featuring an iconic performance from Dick Miller (playing a character with the perfect name of Walter Paisley), Bucket of Blood is the story of an untalented artist who discovers that the best models are the dead ones.  Speaking as both a lover of the old school Beat Generation and the proud owner of a largely useless degree in Art History, I love Bucket of Blood for all of its camp and satire.  Dick Miller deserved an Oscar.
