Long movie series have been with us since nearly the beginning of films.However AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL PICTURES a company that lasted from the mid 50's till the end of the 70's had a strange thing going. Series that only lasted 2 films. SAMMY might have had a reason for this , cut out when you are ahead. The following films follows that pattern-THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN- WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST---I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF-HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER----I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN-HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER-------COUNT YORGA VAMPIRE- RETURN OF COUNT YORGA-----------ABOMIABLE DR PHIBES- DR PHIBES RISES AGAIN---BLACULA- SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM-the 2 DR GOLDFOOT FILMS ETC ETC
Competition like any business is the name of the game in the film industry, Here are some titles with the same title and subject matter made the same year. Harlow-65 A doll's house 73Lambada-add on if you like.
BLACKENSTEIN-72 this horrific cheesy cheap film, got a limited release in the theatres[42 street in the big apple] A sequel was planned, but a hit man shot the producer to death in his office before the film got made.
