    Carnival of Souls I saw this one way back in the sixties while staying with my grandparents. They've colorized it later on, but the original B/W version is the creepiest:

    We're old as dirt. I remember traveling down to Norfolk on family vacation with a bag full of 8-track tapes. Remember the tape clicking right in the middle of the songs?

    8 Track tapes were garbage! I remember when my Dad bought our " 70s Stereo Console" back around 1972-73 it had the 8track built it. The thing only worked about 4 months before a tape got hung up in it and we never used it again. In fact we went back to using the 60s Sears & Roebuck stereo. LOL!

    Yes, I guess. I remember when I got my first good job, I wanted a VCR so bad like everyone in my office that I went out and financed one through a department store in Philly. That's how expensive there were at the time.

    Shortly after graduating, I remember one of my best friends from high school excitedly playing a song in his apartment. He asked if I liked the fidelity and when I told him I did, he said it was a digital CD. He paid $800 for the player.

    "Loren!" I said, probably louder than I meant to. "You know that's going to cost half that in a year."

    "I don't want it in a year," he calmly replied. I thought about it and realized that he was right. Shoot, we might all be dead in a year. And although I tend to wait technology trends out until competition arises, I will buy it sooner if I like it enough.

    I hear you. That first VCR cost $580.00. I can remember paying a guy $70 to repair it. I did not get my first CD player until 1990!

    I watched the old "Invaders From Mars" over the weekend. That's the one where the little boy's parents were changed by the aliens whose space ship was buried in the field behind his house. Hard to believe I used to consider it a good movie when I was as young as he was in the movie.

    Here's the trailer. I have to admit, this brings back good memories for me.

    Here's a classic. It's actually a very good movie that used to creep me out when it came on "Chiller Theater" late on Friday nights.

    This movie is the reason why the theremin is mostly used in creepy soundtracks. It's notoriously difficult to play and compose for, but it was used to great effect back in the days to make your skin crawl in these old movies.

    JAI can you find the name of it?

  25. #125
    I think it may have been from the eighties or early nineties,it was on cable as i was flipping stations.

  26. #126
    Hey saw another one the other night[phychotic ii]something about evil spirits in and old farm house,haaaaaaaa thing was pretty bad.

  27. #127
    Haaaaaaaaaaa,these things are all over cable,another one about demons in a cabin with very cheesy effects and cheesy acting too,i mean i was on the floor laughing at this thing,i'm sorry i don't have the title cause i turned it on in the middle and after about ten minutes i turned it off,who's the guy from[briscoll county jr.]he was the[star????hehehe]of this mess.

  28. #128
    That was either "Evil Dead I" or "Evil Dead 2" with Bruce Campbell. They were cheesy as heck but the first one is considered to be one of the most influential horror films since "Night of the Living Dead". I never finished watching them, either. I love even bad sci-fi, but I can't watch horror flicks because they tend to be formulaic and boring. Usually, the ones that people say are "scary" are only because they turn up the volume on sound effects and music to try to get you to jump out of your seat.

    Yah, I think I already added a film clip of that one. It had a great animatronic monster in it, though. What about "Reptilicus", a Danish monster that spit green cartoon puke on everybody?

    Look what I just found! One of the scariest movies I've ever seen (at least it was when I first saw it at age 19):

    https://archive.org/details/Salems.Lot.1979

  43. #143
    I remember watching that in high school. It's interesting that that and the '90s version of "It" might well be Stephen King's best adaptations and both were made for TV. Oh, and "The Stand" was good, too.

    But "Salem's Lot" scared the crap out of everybody when it came out. I need to watch it again.

    "The Stand" was excellent! I watched the TV version of "IT" when it came on in the early 90s, taped it too. I went to see the new version for my birthday last September and it was pretty good. But "Salem Lot" was the ONE that got me. It scared me good when was 19, home alone and kept hearing things I thought downstairs in the house. I watched half of it this afternoon at the link I posted. It still does it. Excellent writing and acting in this one.

  45. #145
    Jerry, watch "Salems Lot"! The video and audio quality is excellent at that link.

  46. #146
    I plan to. Haven't seen it in 30 years. When I worked in a group home for young men in the '90s, one of them begged me to rent "It" one day for movie night. I asked him why and he recalled how scary it was when Pennywise told him that "Down here, everything floats!" For some reason, I paid attention to that when I saw both versions of "It" and it is a creepy line. And the little boy vampire in "Salem's Lot" still gives me chills.

    "Danny Glick"! LOL! I thought it was ingenious that they used "Nosferatu" the vampire from the famed 1922 film as "Mr. Barlow" with some probably not knowing the significance.

    They made a movie about him. In the movie, the guy playing Count Orlok (Max Schreck in real life) was actually a vampire. Willem Dafoe played him.

    That's right1 I remember that now. I did not get to see the movie, but I remember reading articles and seeing reports that they were making that movie. He was the scariest looking vampire, followed by Bela Lugosi in my opinion. Peter Cushing was bad either.
