HORROR MOVIE TRIVIA

2,210 posts in this topic

I thought this one was kind of easy.

 

It was The Dunwich Horror, based on H.P. Lovecraft, and adapted by future Oscar-winner Curtis Hanson.

 

The cast includes former youth star Sandra Dee, former child-actor and future Oscar nominee Dean Stockwell, Oscar nominees Talia Shire and Sam Jaffe, and Oscar winner Ed Begley.

 

In the film Ed Begley discusses the Necronomicon, a book that shows up in a lot of horror movies and stories.

A gypsy wedding is disrupted by a creature that was buried alive in the 15th century. This movie has lots of red capes and hoods. 

 

Name the movie and the name of the villain.

next:

 

This B-movie shows up on a lot of public-domain horror movie sets. It features some familiar faces involved in a cult. The male lead dreams about the female lead before he ever meets her. The "High Executioner" of the cult also runs a doll shop.

 

Name the movie, the two leads, and who plays the High Executioner.

 

For bonus points you can name the "Great Devil God" that they worship.

A woman becomes her own niece in this film. It's not a vampire film, but necks are involved.

 

Name the film, the two leads, and the part of the body that is significant to the plot.

Hint:

 

This film belongs to at least three horror sub-genres:

 

1. Seeking eternal youth;

2. Mad doctor;

3. Darkest Africa/tribe possessing a secret power

This may be way off....but this reminded me of Voodoo Man​--Bela Lugosi (necks) is the mad doctor who enlists African spells to steal  the 'spirit' of girls to rejuvenate dead wife...uses his eyes to hypnotize them...but I don't remember the 'aunt' connection..John Carradine and George Zucco are his co-stars...

Interesting guess, but no. Hint: the neck involvement is with a certain gland. The mad doctor in the film is dispatched rather early. His wife becomes the villain, extracting secretions that make women young again.

P.S.: For more fun with pineal glands, be sure and check out 1986's From Beyond!

It's not The Legacy (1978), is it? (I'm not sure I know what transmutating means).

 

No, it's older than The Legacy by a good 2 decades or more. Transmutating = transforming (shape-changing to put it bluntly).

Hint: This film bears some resemblance to a classic 40's horror film, but despite the similarities it is not a remake.

"Fangs of the Living Dead" (1968)?  Anita Ekberg inherits a castle and the vampire curse that goes with the castle.

 

No, not that one, either. Still too new. This film (and it is obscure; I've never seen it) was from the 1950's.

Is this The Cat Girl (1957) w/ Barbara Shelley?

 

That's the one.

It's been 10 days, so I don't think Liam is leaving a new question. I'll post a new one to try and get this going again, at least for the month of October.

 

 

Next:  This odd Pre-Code feature has a jealous man disposing of his wife's suitors via animals. The film is noted for being "astonishingly grisly", and for having a cast of notables.

 

Name the film and 4 cast members.
