  1. Any ideas on this movie - A female reporter or student gets lost or her car breaks down near a town with a mysterious past history. There is some history of the town dying off and coming back when clock chimes ring. The inn she checks into has an innkeeper but things she see are not really there disappear - like the fire in the fireplace, dancers at a party, and the inn keeper who shows her to her room. There is an underground tunnel beneath her bedroom where the reporter wanders down and get taken by a cult or something. I believe her brother and boyfriend find the town and look for her and the end of the movie includes a church, an old priest, and ghost coming up from the cemetery. They do escape I believe. That is the movie - thanks.
  2. 3 or 4 years ago I saw a movie trailer, pretty creepy movie but can't remember the name. This couple comes home at night and when they look in the back yard, a guy is standing by the pool, with his back to them, the lights are on. The husband arms the security system which responds by voice with "system armed". The wife is on the phone with the police when the lights go out. The security system reports "power failure". Then they hear a door open, the alarm goes off and the security system again responds with "door open". When the lights come back on the guy is standing in the bed room beside them. Does anyone know the name of this movie?
  3. Nope - the scene after NBNW - more like 19 and 20 - the camera from the bed shot and the young female actor expression.
  4. Still like listening to the December 2015 promo with Sam Dew Air. What is the movie at 18 & 19 seconds in this clip. May have to paste in. https://vimeo.com/147649228
  5. Is there a listing or area on TCM to watch or identify the fill-in segments that TCM runs between movies. These are the travel logs, educational movies. There was one early this morning right after The Great Escape (2/16) that looked interesting but I was half asleep.
  6. A Classic - looking at the VHS case from Sinister Cinema right Now. Mesa of Lost Women (1953) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesa_of_Lost_Women
  7. Solved - Was watching Bill Cosby Himself last night and he was doing the part about how during the wedding vows men remember Love and Honor and women focus on Obey.
  8. I can recall the candy assembly line episode where Lucy and Ethel get behind on the candy line. But I seem to recall a show that did a take on the same idea but it was pies, that needed to be placed in boxes and eventually the pies and boxes piled up in the corner. Anyone else recall this episode or sketch.
  9. The radio and TV broadcasts running in the background as the horror unfolded really intrigued me. I picture todays broadcasters reading from scripts versus what was unfolding in the background as the house was being boarded up. Radio Announcer: Because of the obvious threat to untold numbers of citizens due to the crisis that is even now developing, this radio station will remain on the air day and night. This station and hundreds of other radio and TV stations throughout this part of the country are pooling their resources through an emergency network hook-up to keep you informed of all developments. At this hour, we repeat, these are the facts as we know them. There is an epidemic of mass murder being committed by a virtual army of unidentified assassins. The murders are taking place in villages and cities, in rural homes and suburbs with no apparent pattern nor reason for the slayings. It seems to be a sudden general explosion of mass homicide. We have some descriptions of the assassins. Eyewitnesses say they are ordinary-looking people. Some say they appear to be in a kind of trance. Others describe them as being misshapen monsters. At this point, there's no really authentic way for us to say who or what to look for and guard yourself against. Reaction of law enforcement officials is one of complete bewilderment at this hour. Police and sheriff's deputies and emergency ambulances are literally deluded with calls for help. The scene can be best described as mayhem. The mayors of Pittsburg, Philadelphia, and Miami, along with the governments of several eastern and midwestern states indicated that the National Guard may be mobilized at any moment, but that has not happened as yet. The main advice news reporters have been able to get from official sources is to tell private citizens to stay inside their homes behind locked doors. Do not venture outside for any reason until the nature of this crisis has been determined, and until we can advise what course of action to take. Keep listening to radio and TV for special instructions as this crisis develops further. Thousands of office and factory workers are being urged to stay at their places of employment, not to make any attempt to get to their homes. However, in spite of this urging and warning, streets and highways are packed with frantic people trying to reach their families or, apparently, to flee just anywhere. We repeat, the safest course of action at this time is simply to stay where you are. Ladies and gentlemen, we've just received word that the President has called a meeting of his Cabinet to deal with the sudden epidemic of murder that has seized the eastern third of this nation. The meeting is scheduled to convene within the hour. Members of the Presidential Cabinet will be joined by officials of the FBI and military advisors. White House spokesmen are saying there will be an official announcement immediately following that meeting. This is the latest dispatch just received in our news room. The latest word also - this is from nation press services in Washington, D.C. - tells us that the emergency Presidential conference which we just mentioned will include high-ranking scientists from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. So far, the best advice they are able to give the public is this quote from Chief T. K. Dunbar from Camden, North Carolina, who is quoted as saying, "Tell the people for God's sake to get off the streets! Tell them to go home and lock their windows and doors up tight! We don't know what kind of murder-happy characters we have here!" Chief Dunbar's words were worn out in grisly fashion just hours ago near the small, normally peaceful town of Willard, Pennsylvania, where the driver of a tanker truck was mobbed by a cluster of apparently would-be assassins oblivious to all concerns for their own safety and blindly intent on attacking the driver. The tanker trunk went out of control and plowed into the gas pumps at a well-known eatery and truck stop known as Beakman's. The truck and gas pumps caught on fire and exploded, apparently maiming and killing gas station and restaurant employees, together with a dozen or more patrons, motorists, and pedestrians. Several bodies were found mangled and mutilated. Many others appear to have been carried off by the attackers. Eyewitness accounts described the assassins as ordinary-looking people, misshapen monsters, people who look like they're in a trance, and creatures that look like people but behave like animals. Some tell of seeing victims that looked as if they had been torn apart. This whole ghastly story began developing two days ago, and from that point on, these terrible events kept on snowballing in a reign of terror that has not abated. Military personel and law enforcement agencies have been working hard in an attempt to gain some kind of control of this situation, but most of their efforts have been marginally futile up to this particular time.
  10. We have a whole series of DVDs we can play on Saturday or Sunday when the weather is bad and we feel like watching some fun Sci/Fi and horror movies - they include Them Monolith Monsters Tarantula When Worlds Collide it Came from Beyond Space The Day the Earth Stood Still The Monster that Challenged the World Various Godzilla movies The Blob The original The Thing And so on.
  11. Check out the link http://rondoaward.com/ Our very own Svengoolie picked up best horror host for 2009 - woot. Some pretty interesting horror categories.
  12. Thanks for the confirmation that I did not dream up the program . Great mention on the black and white TV. We had one of the large console black and white TV that stood on the floor. Had the large 2" or 3" channel knob for channels 2 to 13 and then the UHF knob for higher channels. I remember when the knob broke off there was a slotted stem left. We would use a screw driver to turn the channel. That screw driver off course stayed on top of the TV set so it was always handy. When the slotted step eventually gave way we needed to use a vise grips to grab what was left to turn the channel. That would have been 1968 to about 1972. Funny how in the old days you made due with what you had and made it work - today it gets tossed and we buy new. Oh, yeah who also remembers heading to drug store with your dad to test the tubes when the TV went bad. You had to look up the tube you had on a roller catalog, plug in the tube, test to see if it was good and if not the tubes were hopefully in stock. Message was edited by: longshot2
  13. Ok - I am not sure if this was a movie. I think it might have been an episode of Night Gallery or The Outer Limits or something like that. As I recall - there were a number (3 or 4) of people that needed to stay overnight in a house. Not sure what the reason was for the stay over but there were these worm-like furrows throughout the house that freaked out the people staying there. As the night progressed and the furrows become more numerous the people in the house kept getting more freaked out and either turned into worms or killed who they thought was the culprit. A little fuzzy at the end there. Sorry thats all I have.
  14. Was watching Bringing Up Baby last night and I see that actor Virginia Walker was only in a few movies, was sister-in-law to Howard Hawks, and she died at a young age (30). There were not details on her life or on her death. Anyone know what happened to her in December 1946. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0908294/
  15. Would love to see this classic on TCM.
