Joefla,
I have to say for me it's "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" also. It seems pretty lame by today's standards, but my dad and I watched it on TV a few times when I was a kid and it was the only thing I ever saw him get weirded out and scared from. He was not afraid of much at all having beaten cancer back in the late 1950's (when he was in his late 20's) when all they could do was keep cutting it out until it, or you, stopped. He figured, he was on borrowed time so what was there to be afraid of?
I bought an old copy on VHS from a mom and pop vid store going out of business. I still cannot watch it. Combination of fear and missing Dad. He died a few years back of a heart attack...but he got another good 35+ years in after whipping the Big C...

MAchTiki - I remember seeing Prophecy in the theater and everyone busted out laughing when the sleeping bag, supposedly with someone in it, gets hurled against the rock by the skinless muta-bear. For some reason the filmmakers thought that the predominant explosive element of such an impact would be the down feathers from the bag and not the human body inside.



Classic scene Tiki-bot. I remember laughing at that myself.

What about the scene where a camper sticks his head out of a hole in the ground to see if the coast was clear... Then the muntant-bear-thing chews on his head and lets the body back into the hole. Quality stuff I tell ya.

Phantasm!



The Tall Man tossing the casket!

The flying orb drill thingy!

The yellow blood!

Creepy as hell! Scared the crap out of me when I first saw it, later in life it was so bad I laughed through the whole thing. I guess I'm jaded...

Despite the tiki-esque quality of the doll that comes to life in "Trilogy of Terror", the mere memory of that part of the trilogy still scares me, and reminds me of the actress Karen Black's teeth. Ewwww.

Other than that, all MST3K's, especially "Manos, the Hands of Fate". (Torgo the 'man-goat' and 'the Master' operate a bed-and-cult-fest.)

There was a pretty cool film called "thing" or "It" with Tim Curry.

Poor Mr Curry was so typecast it was hard to watch without expecting a piece of taost to fly by.
Certain people will have a hard time in horror...Klinger from MASH, Spock, Mr Rodgers, Festus, PeeWee...

Tim Curry's "I Do The Rock" tour was pretty horrifying...

"Basket Case" and "Basket Case 2".

Twin brothers at birth, but one twin never fully develops and is basically a deformed blob with teeth, eyes and weird little hands and a foot. The twin is attached to his twin's side. However, the evil appendage twin gets cut off by the brother in a fit of rage/anger and wrecks havoc on everyone he meets. His brother/caretaker packs him around in a picnic basket, thus "basket case".

There's a sex scene with the deformed twin, that will have you in stitches.

I like the olde gothic horror of the 1930's. My favorite has to be The Black Cat (Universal 1934) staring Boris Karloff as Hjalmar Poelzig and Bela Lugosi (his arch rival) as Dr. Vitus Verdegast. This movie has it all. Satanic worship, necrophillia, murder, torture and corruption of innocence all set in an old fortress that seems to be a mishmash of Gothic, Bauhaus and Art Deco. As for newer stuff, the trilogy thing got me thinking about a 1995 movie called Tales From The Hood. A kind of Blaxploitation horror movie staring Clarence Williams III (of Mod Squad fame). Funky & Frightening!

Another highly entertaining film... "The Skull" from 1965 starring Peter Cushing as an expert on the occult who obtains the skull of the Marquis de Sade. As you can imagine wackiness ensues when the skull starts levitating around his apartment at night and people start ending up dead! I remember as a kid the movie was kind of spooky but even then I found the highly visible monofilament lines that made the skull fly around hilarious.

I think Peter Cushing deserves a special mention in the pantheon of trashy horror movies. His position as Actor Emeritus of Hammer Horror will never be matched by any actor. He behaved EXACTLY the way every actor in a horror movie should - like the story is absolutely true and completely free of irony. How may times did he play Dr Frankenstein? I think it was more than a dozen. Anyway, here's a blast from the past - when George knew how to cast his movies. It was a great swan song for a great performer.

Hear, Hear, Tikibot. I always loved Peter Cushing (and Christopher Lee) as a boy, and they both remain so now that I'm "grown-up", which is something that I can't say about most of my "childhood favourites" in cinema.

Both Lee and Cushing are better actors than most people given them credit for being. Maybe I'm just sick + twisted, but the "bad guys" seemed to be played by much better actors and left a far stronger impression on me than the "good guys".

However Lucas managed to convince such fine talent to work for him, vis-a-vis, Alec Guinness, Peter Cushing, and James Earl Jones, it was miraculous.

Lucas had talent and skill back then, and more importantly, he knew when to get out of the director's chair.

*SIGH* It's such a depressing fizzle of an end for the franchise.

It's not a classic horror film per se but if you're looking for a cheesy B film catch Mr No Legs which showcases a real life amputee as a crime lord boss in a wheelchair that has built in shot guns and kung fu stars. You haven't lived until you've seen him use his torso in a martial arts battle.

But seriously, I always liked "Student Bodies" it was one of the first "spoof" horror movies I can remember.
