I've heard of Attack on Titan. Should both parts be watched, or Just Part 1? Wasn't it all one movie originally?

 

Hey Lawrence, Attack on Titan is a two parter, but imo part 1 is the better of the series and can almost be watched as a stand-alone, but  part 2 isn't too shabby and one would most likely want to see how the story concludes.

 

You're the first person I've met who has also seen Buttcrack.

 

Yeah, although it's mostly parody, I just find it unbelievably quirky and hilarious.

I showed clips of Robot Monster to some of my middle school students and they couldn't believe that something like that existed. They also, however, showed interest in wanting to watch the whole thing :)

Yes, indeed, bad movies can be "addictive".

At years old, it must have been that gorilla costume with a space helmet on top and then having to walk home alone in the dark.  I don't think it was the bubbles.

When I was in college, several of us were watching The Vulture in our dorm living room, late one night. One of my roommates, a tough guy from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, shrieked with terror when the talons came down on the woman waiting at the bus stop:

My 2 cents for movies that scared me BIG time as a kid and still enjoy:

"Fiend Without a Face" (1958) with those creatures we finally get to see and then splatted all over

"It, The Terror from Outer Space" (1958) another Marshall Thompson flick and also Sci-Fi but it was horrific to me

and the guilty pleasure

"Robot Monster" (1953) definitely Sci-Fi and krap BUT when I saw on TV at a friend's house and had to walk a block home in the dark at 7 years old, VERY SCARY impact!!

 

Yeah, the 3 you mention I would have in the science fiction list. There's a lot of crossover and gray area between the two genres.

 

Robot Monster scared you? Don't feel bad. I knew someone who was absolutely terrified by The Giant Claw:lol:

Update: I'm up to 85 titles, but I'm stuck.  What were some of the better George Zucco titles? It's been too long since I've seen them to recall which was which, but I recall liking a few of them.

 

The great George Zucco appeared in many horrors films, including some very low budget PRC titles. They all have a charm and display Zucco's greatness. I particularly like his supporting performances as the priest in the two Mummy remakes; and as the lead in Dead Men Walk and The Mad Monster, in which he delivers his great monologue, perhaps PRC's equivalent to "To Be or not to Be:"  "He's no longer human, he's a wolf, snarling, ferocious, lusting for the kill...! "

 

The Black Raven

The Cat and the Canary (1939)

Dead Men Walk

The Flying Serpent

Fog Island

House of Frankenstein

The Mad Ghoul

The Mad Monster

The Monster and the Girl

The Mummy's Ghost

The Mummy's Hand

Return of the Ape Man

Scared to Death

Okay, I'm working on my Top 100 Horror Films Up to 1969.

 

I've added those titles that people have mentioned that I didn't have on my original list, plus a few others. Currently I'm at 50 titles.

 

So please submit any titles that you think should be under consideration from the dawn of cinema up to and including the year 1969.
