Well, that's kind of a jawbreaking title, but that's basically what I'd like to discuss. As a monster kid--and someone who began seeing horror movies at theaters in September of 1957, when I was five--there are certain cinematic snippets I recall more vividly than others. For example, From Hell it Came was the first horror movie I ever saw, period. It was at a theater, and the only two scenes I can recall from that experience have to do with a native guy being tied down on the ground (while chickens walk around him) and one where someone discusses the monster and how it was "legendary," or something like that. I think they're looking at illustrations in a book.
Here are other snippets I remember from those early days. Can you guess the films?
(1) A bloody arm reaching out of a bathtub, while a woman watches in horror.
(2) A woman screaming while two giants bugs, including a spider, fight in a web.
(3) A gigantic rubber hand reaching down and grabbing a man, while he wrapped the thumb around him.
(4) A man looking out his window and seeing a huge crack in the exterior of the house he's in.
(5) Blood dripping on a woman's hand, and she quickly wipes it off.
(6) A woman drowned in a bathtub, and a bubble of air escapes one of her nostrils.
(7) A blonde woman on a twirling wheel. Someone throws a knife at her, and it sticks in her neck.
( A woman lying on a couch. Something jumps down through a window and begins murdering her. I remember blood or paint being splashed across the wall.
(9) Two women fighting, and suddenly there are cat pictures on the wall, and one of them "meows."
(10) A TV newsman reporting on King Kong, and that he liked to eat red berries. There are berries in a glass jar on the reporter's desk.
Now, keep in mind that I know all of these films, but when I first saw them, these were the scenes that always stuck in my mind.
What do you remember?
