  1. Wow, thats a hard question. Really no idea what the first one was or how old i was, but the first western that ever really stuck with me was The Outlaw Josey Wales. Funny enough, it wasn't Clint that stood in my memory from that film either, it was that beautiful grandfatherly old man that played his Cherokee friend. He was the reason why i remembered that movie.
  2. OMW! What is TCM coming to? Stop and think about the consequences for TCM if they did what you suggested? LOLOLOL!!! Actually TCM does show several of those movies from time to time, but without the MST 3000 crew. One that immediately comes to mind is "Tormented", which is actually quite a good movie on its own. However, thats actually just whyi like the MST 3000 Tormented a lot because the crew is poking good jokes at a decent movie. Good movie, and good mockery too! Funny, another one that falls in the same category, "the Killer Shrews". Sure the thing looks cheesy now but i alw
  3. In response to the original poster, you mentioned Night of the Hunter. I felt Robert Mitchum was especially effective on this one as well as Cape Fear because him as a villain is just so twisted wrong. He had that likeableness, that quality of "o theres ol Uncle Mitchum" -though no relation to me -that seeing him portray an evil minister in Night of the Hunter, or a depraved pedophile on cape fear was just one of those experiences that turned my world upside down. Everything was wrong, these things aren't supposed to happen! It really worked.

    Just wanted to throw in a plug for this old western because i'm really not a John Wayne fan. This movie has so many things going for it, that to this day when i watch it i just forget that JW is even there. Mr Brennan as Stumpy is iconic, and with Dean Martin in the picture, you know they are about to break out into a song, and the movie sure doesn't let you down there. After a while, it is like if John Wayne shows up onscreen, ya thats fine, your welcome here too!
  5. Is it just me, or does any one else think this was the worst western ever. It even could not be salvaged by the great Lee Van Cleef. Seriously, i will be sitting on the couch watching this one, and when the star of the film appears, i will announce to every one "here comes Stupid!"
  6. August 31, i saw a film that tops any sort of exploitative movie i have ever seen before. It was so over the top, and so political too, i just could not believe what i was seeing. It was called Tokyo Gore Police.
  7. You know, the more that i think about it, i said in my original response to this thread that i couldn't pinpoint what i thought worked for Twilight Zone over Night Gallery, but i think i can offer one part of it today. It is the B&W format. For me anyway, the black and white helps me just settle down and appreciate the plot of a story, as if some one were reading to me from a book. I love color format too, but it is a whole different kind of experience, much more sensual than cerebreal. The good writing of the Twilight Zone episodes was, imo, really assisted by that mellow visual forma
  8. Tough question, because there have actually been several movies that scared me very bad for different reasons. The Universal frankenstein movies are better every time i see them, timeless -but were always more disturbing than scary. I remember as a child, crying when the monster would be destroyed. Scary takes a little more explanation. The very first movie i ever saw in theatre was Alien, and damn! I was grabbing my daddies hand the whole time! Not too long after that i saw John Carpenter's the Thing, with a friend, but i didn't have any one to hold onto that time. Later in t
  9. Dont forget, one of the best things about Twilight Zone was Rod Serling's moral commentaries on each episode. In retrospect, i look back and still feel the gravity he could conjure with a gentle word where in real life, i would get the daylights beat out of me to reinforcer the same lesson. I'm sure that a lot of the rest of you know what i'm talking about too!
  10. Lolololol.... ty for your reply. I usually reserve guilty pleasure classification for "pretty white kids with problems" movies, especially if they envolve cheerleaders. Trust me, a cheerleader never was caught in the same room with me, even when i was young enough that i might be seen with one; and in real life she would probably bore me if i had to listen to her for more than 30 seconds. But for guilty pleasure movies, nothing better. I am still intoxicated with a girl that has a big nose and wears glasses! I met her in kindergarten! However, The House that Screamed is not a guilty
  11. lol, that is notmuch to go on. I'm not an expert on movies, but isn't there a scene on one of the old Nosferatu movies that are somewhat like that? Like you said, just a stab in the dark.
  12. When i was a child, i really enjoyed Night Gallery, but upon seeing them again as an adult, most of them didn't age well. Agreed though, some really were excellent. The show wasn't alltogether bad, just inconsistent. Can't pinpoint what it was about Twilight Zone though that was so different to Night Gallery, but some how it never gets old for me. I can still watch the Twilight Zone marathons all day long when they air on tv from time to time.
  13. Yup, always loved this movie too. Was my first experience with Arjento, and i see all his movies i can since. All of his movies, regardless of their flaws have scenes you will remember for the rest of your life.. Young, beautiful Jennifer Connely falling in the pool of guts in Phenomenon, the ravens identifying the killer in Opera, etc etc. One of my favorites though is Cat o Nine Tails though, largely because of the outstanding performance of the fellow playing the blind detective (can't remember his name but wonderful, wonderful actor). But for eye candy, Susperia has to be the most beau
  14. Hi, i absolutely love this movie, and though i imagine its usually classified as horror, it is certainly obscure enough to be a cult film. While i would love to actually buy it at some point, i am thinking i ought to view the full 104 minute version of it, as apparently the version offered by tcm is 98 minutes. As surprisingly good as the version i saw still was, it felt like there was a scene or two missing or shortened. Does any one have enough familiarity with this film to describe the differences between the original 104 minute version and the current 98 minute version offered in the tcm c
