This animated horror movie is based on five tales by a famous author.  Please name the film, the author, the five tales the film includes, and the five narrators (four of them are horror movie legends/directors).

"A Shriek in the Night" (1933), with Ginger Rogers and Lyle Talbot as the two reporters; Talbot later ended up in "Plan 9 From Outer Space" (1959)?

 

Absolutely right, film lover. Your thread!

Hint: the actress was a hoofer, the actor played a famous comic book bad guy in a serial.

Next: This horror-mystery-comedy from the early sound era featured a pair of reporters investigating the death of a rich guy in his penthouse apartment. The two stars would have wildly divergent careers: she would go on to silver screen stardom and immortality, while he would slide further and further down the Hollywood food chain, eventually appearing one of the most notorious bad movies ever.

 

Name the movie and the two stars.

Is this Lair of the White Worm, directed by Ken Russell, featuring Hugh Grant (and Peter Capaldi), based on a Bram Stoker work?

 

It is indeed Lawrence. A scary, atmospheric film, with a great sense of humour. Pete Capaldi is the current Dr. Who.

 

Here are three of my favorite scenes: Capaldi playing the bagpipes to fend off the possessed Paul Brooke (a great actor, formerly with the Royal Shakespeare Company); Amanda Donohoe and the boy scout segment (he charms her with his mouth organ); and the film's theme song, which relates the story of the worm:

This film was made by an A-list director (once nominated for Best Director Oscar) with an excellent cast, one of whom became a "matinee idol" for the 1990s. Based on a novel by a seminal figure in the literature of horror.

 

Name the film, the director, the star, and the novel's author.

"Interview With The Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles" (1994), directed by Neil Jordan, based on Anne Rice's novel?  At a guess, the star you're thinking of is Antonio Banderas?

 

The other stars of the film are Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.

 

No -- sorry. The film in question was made a few years earlier -- not in the '90s, but by then, the lead had become a sort of matinee idol.

 

Another male lead in the film became the eponymous star of a hugely famous British science fiction television series, many years later. He still plays that role. (Name him and the role he now plays as well.) 

 

The director in question was British.

She Demons

 

 

It was easy, wasn't it? The movie was on my mind after seeing Gene Roth, who plays the big Nazi guard, in an episode of Twilight Zone the other night.

One recurring trope of horror and science fiction movies of the 40's-80's is that of the Nazi experiment. One movie featuring Nazi experimentation takes place on a remote island where some pleasure cruisers accidentally crash. They learn from their radio that the island is due to be used for Air Force bombing practice, but their escape is hindered by the results of those diabolical Nazi experiments as part of their hopes of restarting the Reich.

 

Name the movie and the notable star, a one-time pin-up model who starred in a syndicated 50's TV adventure series.

 

For a bonus, name the director, who also made 3 other memorable Z-grade movies the same year as this one.

 

She Demons

Irish McCalla (Sheena Queen of the Jungle)

Richard E. Cunha

 

That was easy peasy.

 

One of my favorite lines is from this film: "Would you go, if you looked like THIS?:

That's another one that I haven't seen, although I've heard of it:

 

Macumba Love (1960)

 

featuring William Wellman Jr. and June Wilkinson

 

Great Poster!

Right -- and great trailer, too, which opens by stating that people have "passed away" watching the film. It used to be on television decades ago. I still remember the tune, which is heard in this great trailer:

This mysterious film, set in an exotic locale, featured the son of a famous director and an actress known for appearing in Playboy (and for her bosom).

 

The trailer for the film makes encourages us to: "See the blood lust...;" "See the demon rites of the witch goddess..." 

 

Name the film and the two actors referred to above.
