Lawrence--Most heroines don't bear a resemblance to Shirley Temple/Nancy Grace, LOL.

 

Hint--Campy film has a star who worked with reputable directors before this.

Name this horror film.  The heroine makes her appearance in a dated, orange pantsuit, then for dinner in the castle, wears a mini black and white lace dress, with her hair styled so she looks an unfortunate combination of Shirley Temple and Nancy Grace.  She and other females in the film have a habit of almost falling out of their tops.  Name the film, year of release, the star I described, and two other stars in the film.

 

Sounds like 3/4 of all the Euro-horror movies from the late 60's through the 70's! :lol:

Another of the more well-known titles is Dracula vs Frankenstein...yes, another movie using that title!

 

The Spanish actor is the one and only Paul Naschy, the king of Spanish horror films, who starred in and/or directed over 100 movies. This movie is considered the third film in the Hombre Lobo series, in which Naschy starred as Count Waldemar Daninsky, the werewolf. You should treat yourself and try watching as many as you can! 

I thought of Michael Rennie but couldn't find any relevant film in his IMDB listing. In any case, I can't wait to see this movie!

"The film is "The Monsters of Terror" (1970)?  AKA "Assignment Terror" or "Reincarnator"?  The German Sex Symbol is Karin Dor, who appeared in "You Only Live Twice" (1967)?  The English Actor is Michael Rennie, who starred in "The Day The Earth Stood Still" (1951)?  I've no idea who the Spanish actor is--Manuel de Blas??  Series--Hombre Lobo???

Lawrence--Correct!  The film is on Youtube.

 

Your thread, Lawrence. :)

 

I have it on a DVD with The Tomb of Ligeia.

 

next:  This incredible international production has been released under several titles. The hard-to-believe plot concerns aliens coming to Earth and starting a carnival (!), and stocking it with a werewolf, a vampire and Frankenstein's monster (!!) in an effort to learn why humans are scared of such monsters. The cast includes a Spanish B-movie king, an English actor who appeared in many famous Hollywood features including one of the biggest Sci-Fi movies of all time, and a German sex symbol who appeared in a James Bond film.

 

Name at least two of the titles, each of the three stars mentioned above, and what film series this is considered a part of.

Is this An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe (1970) starring Vincent Price reciting "The Tell-Tale Heart", "The Sphinx", "The Cask of Amontillado" and "The Pit and the Pendulum"?

This little gem starring a horror legend originally aired on television.  Name the film, the actor, the author whose work is read from, and the four stories. Hint--is in color.

"Pharaoh's Curse" (1957)?

 

That's the movie, and yet another I haven't seen. I stumbled across it researching another question.

 

The whole movie is available on YouTube, though.

The poster for this rarely-shown movie declared "A Blood-Lusting Mummy that Kills for a Cat-Goddess!"

 

Name the movie, if you dare. :o

Is it The Mad Doctor of Market Street (1942) starring Lionel Atwill and Una Merkel? (I haven't seen this one, either!)

 

That's the one, a great oldie, rarely seen. I haven't seen it since it was on the old Shock Theatre, probably introduced by Zacherley, in my far-off childhood.

No -- sorry. The horror movie icon in the film is not quite of the stature of Boris/Bela.  

 

One of the actresses, who would have happily shuffled off to Buffalo a decade earlier, finds herself in a less benign location. "Now were the prisoners of a bunch of savages," she says.

The Ape (1940) with Boris Karloff? (There are a lot of mad scientist movies in the 1940's!)
