    Spirits of the Dead (1968) Distribution

    My theatre is looking to show Spirits of the Dead (1969) http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/91091/Spirits-of-the-Dead/# this October, but we can't find the distributor anywhere. We've contacted Swank, Criterion, Warner Brothers, etc. and all have told us that they don't have it. So, we're at a loss for who to contact. Any suggestions?
  2. Helen Chandler (February 1, 1906 - April 30, 1965) 52 years after her early death at fifty-nine, ardent horror fans remember Helen Chandler as the fragile beauty Mina Howard in the Universal horror film "Dracula" (1931) who is seduced by the famous vampire himself. Although Helen was not impressed by the role she is most famous for, it continues to be a reminder of the talented young woman she was during her short time on this earth. Originally born in Charleston, South Carolina, Helen Chandler rose up to become one of the most popular actresses in the Big Apple, and starred in numerous Broadway productions with big names like John Barrymore and Basil Sydney. Like many actresses during the 1920s, Helen decided to make the transition to the growing art form of film. Her first movie role was in the silent film The Music Master in 1927 and then later the film version of Outward Bound starring Leslie Howard and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. in 1931. That same year in 1931, Helen Chandler starred in the Universal production of "Dracula", the role she detested in favor of Alice in "Alice in Wonderland". The film became one of the most successful motion pictures at that time, however, her performance failed to grab audiences' attention. She continued to act in stage, film, and radio productions but by the late 1930s her alcoholism was rampant and as a result her acting career declined. In 1950, Helen suffered severe injuries in an apartment fire resulting in body disfigurement but miraculously, she survived. Her alcoholism continued after the accident. The stage starlet's life ended sadly on April 30, 1965 after going into cardiac arrest during stomach surgery in Hollywood, California. No one came to claim her remains. Helen Chandler was cremated in accordance with her wishes, and is interred at Chapel of the Pines Crematory in a section not open to vistors. She may be gone, but her haunting performance in Dracula will continue to charm horror movie fans around the world.
  3. As a huge science fiction/horror film fan who got hooked by watching "Supernatural Theatre" (WOR Channel 9 NY), "Chiller Theatre" (WPIX Channel 11 NY) and "Million Dollar Movie" (WOR Channel 9 NY), there are a LOT of titles from those years I saw on TCM-thankfully-but others I would love to see again. One is "THE FLAME BARRIER", starring Arthur Franz (which I overdosed on WOR Channel 9). Also, another is "MACUMBA LOVE" (1960) from United Artists; starring Walter Reed, June Wilkinson, Ziva Rodann-not seen in over 40 years! Anyone else have favorites from their youth?

    Tex and the Lord of the Deep (1985)

    I found a "great" movie today on Amazon Prime for fans of cheesy movies. It is a Spaghetti Western complete with cowboys, Indians, horses, and shootouts mixed with a horror/fantasy element of evil people living in a volcano! Check it out!

    The Bad Seed-One Scary Little Girl

    Watching The Bad Seed and noticing just how good Patty McCormack is at playing an evil little girl. Mervyn LeRoy should have won an Oscar for directing that performance. Nancy Kelly and Eileen Heckart are also good.

    Halloween/Scary Silent Movies!

    Halloween is coming up and one of my favorite things to do around this holiday is watch scary movies! There are so many wonderful films to watch around Halloween, however, some of the best scary movies often get overlooked. There are many frightening silent films that are absolutely perfect for this time of year! The silence almost makes creepy scenes even more terrifying! Here are two of my personal favorite scary/thriller/suspense silent movies! 1. The Lodger: A Story of The London Fog (1927) This early Alfred Hitchcock movie is full of suspense and keeps you guessing. The plot focuses on a string of "Jack the Ripper" type murders happening in London. A mysterious lodger (Ivor Novello) arouses suspicion and people begin wondering if he could be the killer! 2. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920) John Barrymore's convincing acting along with some very eerie special effects combine to make this classic tale thoroughly chilling and a perfect Halloween movie. This film contains an early performance by Nita Naldi; this is the film that helped her gain some recognition. What are some of your favorite "scary" silent movies (this can be anything you'd watch around Halloween: mystery, thriller, suspense, horror etc.) ?
  9. To kick off the Halloween Special, I reviewed the 1941 version of Jekyll and Hyde...It doesn't even come close to the 1931 version with Fredric March! Feel free to recommend some creepy classics to me, guys!
  10. Trying to discover the name of a horror flick-probably from the 1970's.A group of students/specialists are brought in to identify a large glass container filled with a dark swirling liquid. It possesses people & has them killing off the others. It's located in an old abandoned brick church. Been driving me nutz trying to find the title. Any help appreciated!
  11. Bzz bzzz..This is such a great classic horror flick to watch! It is a must see, and Vincent Price wasn't even the bad guy! What did you think of me adding creepy music to the review, guys? Should I keep it or put it back to no music?
  12. The third and final chapter to the "fly" trilogy! It actually wasn't too bad, despite not having Vincent Price. I recommend watching this review only if you have already seen the first two "fly" movies! Finally, all the flies have been swatted! Be sure to subscribe for more Frightening Friday Flick reviews in the future!
  13. This sequel to "The Fly" was actually pretty good for being a "B Horror" movie. Vincent Price is a joy to watch as always! I have just one more "fly" movie to watch, guys! That will be next week's horror review. Be sure to leave a comment and to subscribe for more reviews!
  14. "Indestructible Man" is a silly 70 minute long horror/sci-fi/noir flick that is good if you want a quick movie to watch on a late week day night. I would not recommend this for a Friday or Saturday night because I don't want to ruin one of your weekend nights! Feels good to be back doing a horror review! Let me know what you thought of the movie and be sure to subscribe!
  15. For this week's Frightening Friday Flick, I chose one with sort of a funny title..."Invisible Ghost." It's only an hour long and perfect for cuddling up on the couch! Be sure to subscribe on Youtube...and please leave comments because I'd love to talk to more people about these great classics!
  16. Tonight's review is the first horror movie to ever win an Oscar! Fredric March was seriously incredible in the transformation scenes of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." He was literally a different person when he was Mr. Hyde. This movie will certainly be a must watch every October from now on! You gotta see it!
  17. I need help finding two horror films. The first one is similar to Eyes Without a Face. It features a mad scientist running around snatching and killing COED's to take their faces to transplant on a disfigured family member. What is different about this film is that I remember the victims being shown the face of their friend placed on a plaster cast that was attached to something similar to a hand-held mirror. It is not The Awful Dr. Orlof, Atom Age Vampire, or The Hand that Feeds the Dead. -------------------------------- The second film is similar to the TV movie, The Haunted about the Smurl haunting. I believe it was another TV movie on Lifetime or similar. It was about a woman haunted by a spirit who would attack her. What was memorable about it is that she chose to live in a research facility so the ghost would not start attacking her family. It is not The Entity with Barbara Hershey, though the end scene is somewhat similar. Any help would be enormously appreciated.
  18. About four years ago, I saw a film on TCM that was shown late at night, perhaps part of the Underground series. It was a Japanese film. Five school girls (about age 14) traveled to this house or cottage some distance away to visit an elderly lady (maybe an aunt?) that lived there. I vaguely remember them waiting for a bus or shopping in an outdoor market before traveling. Once in the house, strange things started to happen. I think the girls kept disappearing. I remember haunting music or sound effects and the elderly woman revealing something about herself at the end. Does any of this ring a bell and can someone help me with the title? It was definitely a spooky movie.

    Japanese Horror Films

    Hi guys, I don't know how many of you have watched Japanese horror movies, but they are my favorite. The thing about them is suspense. They don't show much graphic imagery, they scare you on whole different way. My favorites are Shutter and Dark Water. What are yours?
  20. Did anyone catch The Baby last night? I just finished watching it, and it's almost impossible to describe. Kind of a combination of Freaks, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, Night of the Living Dead, and Die! Die! My Darling!, with the weird sensation that the bloated Liz Taylor of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, or maybe it's Divine from Pink Flamingos, is inhabiting Ruth Roman's body! And what an ending! I'm still cracking up at the denouement. Bottom line, though, is that it's a camp classic, even if it's probably more suited for a repeat on Hallowe'en than on Mother's Day!
