Re: Why I Like Spoilers (reply)
About 20 years ago i got to watch PSYCHO with somebody who not only had never seen it before but had not even heard of the movie. When the big reveal happened before Simon Oaklands psychiatrists' speech, my friend, who'd been paying...

This bothers me! A staple of hard media finally admits its own redundancy. When I was a preteen i used to read his book virtually cover to cover. It was truly the cinefiles bible and now it's over! This really bothers me!

Re: Favorite Supporting Performances in Classic Horror Films (reply)
I was fortunate enough to get to see a 35 mm screening of FRANKENSTEIN this past Friday night and Frederic Kerr as the old Baron just killed! Pretty much every line that he had got a laugh out of the audience, so, on the strength of...

Re: A Field In England (reply)
Just watched this this past week and it was good. It didn't knock me out the way KILL LIST did but few horror films in the last few years have. I think that Wheatley is definately a filmmaker to keep an eye on. Stylistically, it struck...

Re: Which episodes of once-great TV shows have the producer seeing a shark's dorsal fin below his feet? (reply)
CAROLINE IN THE CITY when she finally got together with Richard, and FRASIER when Niles and Daphne finally got together. IMHO those types of plot resolutions should be saved for series finales.

Re: Ever Been To A Movie Where The Audience Booed The Flick? (reply)
Me and my buddy were 12 years old when we went and saw a double bill of BLOOD FROM THE MUMMYS TOMB and NIGHT OF THE BLOOD MONSTER. NOTBM was actually Jess Francos THE BLOODY JUDGE with all of the sadism and nudity cut out of it. We all...

FACE OF FIRE. For me it's one of James Whitmores' finest hours. There's a thread in the 60s folder if you want more info on it. Last time I checked on IMDB it had 10 user reviews so it's pretty obscure. I found it absolutely haunting!

Re: Worst Big-Time Movie of the Seventies. (reply)
I had thought that SEXTETTE was the worst musical I'd ever seen, and then i recently saw the film version of JACQUES BREL IS ALIVE AND WELL. This movie could replace water-boarding at Gitmo.

Re: HERCULES IN NEW YORK (reply)
There's a breath-taking awfulness about this that almost begins and ends with the sight and sound of a young, dubbed Arnold. We all know what he's supposed to sound like and a generic Hollywood leading man voice comes out of his mouth....

Re: happy birthday Lon Chaney (reply)
I still regard him as the finest acting talent ever to step in front of a camera, and I recall reading that, on stage, his most acclaimed talent was as a dancer. Oh, to travel back in time and catch a live performance by this genius of...

Re: What would Imhotep have done next? (reply)
I'm convinced that all the murders committed by Im-ho were just crimes of passion, and, assuming that he never got caught by the police for them, he'd just play house somewhere with Aanks and be known as "that wrinkly old guy with the...

Re: Pivotal events and forks in the Universal road (reply)
I've long maintained that it was the death of Lon Chaney that allowed the Universals as we know them to happen. Pretty sure that Lugosi and Karloff wouldn't have had the careers that they did and it's entirely possible that Lon Jr....
