Hello boys and ghouls I just want to stop in and say hello. Now that the holidays are almost over I find that I have time to visit places on my list.

I recently bought a DVD of Carnival of Souls, one of my favorite fear flicks
from my childhood.

Carnival of Souls (1962)
A car plunges off a bridge, and a young woman emerges, apparently unscathed. Wandering off, her odyssey takes her to a strange small town and a carnival pavilion whose patrons walk the line between the living and the dead. Director Herk Harvey's atmospheric low-budget chiller has achieved a cult following; Candace Hilligoss, Sidney Berger star. 87 min.


Do you have any favorite horror flicks?

Jeff, could you delete my duplicate post please? I thought this would show up on the first page, and when I didn't see it, I made another post and that one has errors in it, thanks.

Thanks Jeff


I'll have to check out Horror Hotel. My wife suggested we start a horror film collection. Personally, I prefer Sci-Fi but some classics are both, like <a href="http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0052564/">The Angry Red Planet</a>

Adding to my collection are House on Haunted Hill and The Last Man on Earth, both with Vincent Price.

Sorry to have to put this film here, it is grotesque, but this one just came to mind.


ERASERHEAD (1976)


Director David Lynchís feature-film debut is a masterpiece of the macabre and grotesque. Reportedly a reaction to the news that he was about to become a father, Lynch's ERASERHEAD follows a sensitive young man as he struggles to cope with impending parenthood. Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) lives in a hopeless industrial landscape, lusting after the beautiful woman who lives in the apartment across the hall. After his girlfriend, Mary (Charlotte Stewart), informs him of her pregnancy, he is forced to eat dinner with her extremely odd family. The baby is eventually born, only it isnít a human baby at all; itís a deformed creature that resembles a lizard. The baby wonít stop crying, a horrifyingly piercing wail that drives Mary insane. Left alone with the baby, Henry is serenaded by a woman who lives inside his radiator, and soon he decides to murder his baby in order to stop the nightmare once and for all. Five years in the making, ERASERHEAD contains all of the trademark attributes of a Lynch film--haunting visuals, an ethereal score, unsettling sound design, and, most notably, a black sense of humor--creating a world onscreen that is exhilarating, terrifying, and unique.

Yeah "The Tingler" Great film. Remember " The Haunting" ? Very scary film. Not the remake but the first one.


 Also  great sci-fi/horror films " The Day of The Triffids " and " Invasion of The Body Snachers"

WOW!!! This thread is really getting into the nooks and crannies of sci-fi & horror. The Tingler, the first time I saw that I was slightly influenced by a (recreational) influence. At the time I was watching a black & white TV, but I saw the film in color that was the first time I saw that movie, musta' been around 1972. I thought it was a really cool film to watch at midnight on Chiller Theater (a weekly late-night horror movie program).


Just to lighten up the mood a little, I'll mention Attack of The Killer Tomatos.


Joel, I've missed your company as well. Since the Holidays are over, I have made a return to the online scene and (if you would like to stop in) I started a prog-rock thread at <a href="http://forums.mp3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=14014#14014">CNET Music Forum</a>.


Jeff,

This is one of those movies that are so bad, they have become good.


the movie is called "Spider Baby" and starred a rather pathetic yet poignant performance by Lon Chaney Jr. But the girl that played the demented teenage girl Virginia gives a mesmerizing preformance. Name was Jill Banner, and it is believed to be her one and only film role. She is what makes the film something worth seeing.


(I tried to put a picture here, but apparently your board doesn't accept images Jeff?)


There is something about it that works. Ever seen it?


I have the "collectors edition" video which has some very cheesy scenes from the cast and crew reunion.


 


It's one of my favorite b movies.

Got it at a place here called Media Play. It's a chain type place but I don't know if there are any where you live.


I'm KNOW you can order it on the net. probably find it cheap on e-bay.


 


Here's an idea of the kind of movies I like:


"Earth vs. The Flying Saucers"  awesome flick, with special effects by the master of his time, Ray Harryhausen, who also provided the effects on:


"First Men on the Moon" and "Mysterious Island", two classic Jules Verne adventure. The latter especially boasted some incredible FX. That crab, and those bees just blew me away at the time. still do actually.


I still watch "The Thing From Another World" regularly. Can never get enough of that movie. I like the Carpenter remake too, but the original is timeless and classic. It's probably my favorite movie of all time.


Then there is "The Creature from the Black Lagoon". The gill man is probably the best monster that came out of that era. I like the sequels too, btw.


"This Island Earth". What an awesome flick that is!


I could go on and on (and i will)


but I'll stop with this silly flick, but still one of my favorites:


"The Monolith Monsters"  Giant rock crystals that grow uncontrollably, and turn people to stone. Very scary! And all it took to defeat them was.............salt water.


It has Grant Williams in it though, who was in the masterful:


"The Incredible Shrinking Man"  Some of the best prop special effect in the movies ever.


 


I'm done for now. Got lots more though.

Don't think we have any Media Plays around here. I'll try Blockbuster. Hey I love everyone of those films you named. "This Island Earth " is great . How about " The 7th Voyage of Sinbad " ? That was great too. Of course I also love " King Kong VS Godzilla" LOL

more Harryhausen:


20 Million Miles to Earth" and "It Came From Beneath the Sea", "The Beast From 20 Thousand Fathoms", "The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad", "Jason and the Argonauts"....let's see,


Oh yeah "The Valley of the Gwangi". "Clash of the Titans" and "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger"


Harryhausen was a true film pioneer. Even the suckiest of movies are worth watching just for his incredible animations!

and don't forget " Mighty Joe Young" now instead of Harryhausen they use computers. His art is a dying art. Sigh. The remake was good though. He even had a small part in it with Terry Moore.

Harryhausen was in the remake of mighty joe young? The one with Charlize Theron? I did not know that.


I'll have to watch it again. Ms. Theron makes it easy to watch. Cool special effects, I must admit.


Just thought of a couple of others: "The 3 worlds of Gulliver"


and "One Million Years B.C." with the delicious Rachel Welch! Movie sucked though.

 Yeah in the new " Mighty Joe Young " the scene with the older coulpe just before Joe gets loose.


Goes like this: " She reminds me of someone"


 " Yes Dear she reminds me of you when you were younger"
